About the property

Lodge, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

The River Bend Lodge certainly lives up to its name - a shady, wooded spot directly across from a waterfall in the Columbia Gorge area better! Rent this Washougal River vacation home and you’ll never want to leave. Oh yeah, and there’s a hot tub.

Builty by hand in 1972, this cabin accommodates up to eight guests comfortably. Enjoy a dramatic, two-story rock fireplace in cooler temps and a furnished deck on warm afternoons.

The lodge is built into the side of a hill, so you'll enter on the upper level, through the carport (that has room for two vehicles). Upon entering, make sure to slip off your shoes as this is a tread-free home. Plus, it’s more relaxing!

Gather on the deck to check in with your friends as the sun sets. Late at night, why not zone out in the media room, with its chaise and 60-inch plasma TV with Blu-ray and streaming Netflix? The chaise sofa also converts into a queen-size bed for those sleeping in this room.

You may prefer to sit quietly by the tall native rock, wood-burning fireplace and gaze out at the panoramic of the waterfall and Washougal River. This vista will surely lure you outdoors, where there’s croquet, a horseshoe pit, and even whitewater rafting and tubing nearby.

In the fully stocked kitchen, you’ll have all the basic tools needed to fix a feast. You’ll even have a Keurig coffeemaker! Check out the propane grill outside - a freshly grilled meal will be delightful to share at the massive hand-hewn black walnut dining table.

After dinner, soak in the luxurious hot tub under an expansive roof and before unobstructed views of the ancient forest and river all year round. Pro tip: warm your spa towels in the dryer beforehand!

On the lower level, you have the master bedroom with a comfortable king-size bed. The adjacent bath has double sinks and tub with rainfall showerhead. A door at the end of the bath leads to the laundry room where you'll find a laundry room, which also has its own exterior door so you won't have to worry about tracking mud and sand through the house.

The surrounding forest is part of a 26-acre family compound that is shared with Eva's Cottage, a getaway for four that can be rented together with River Bend Lodge. Eva's descendants steward the land and maintain the forest with an eye to the enjoyment of future generations. There are four trails that wind through the property, so be sure to bring your hiking boots!

This highly rated and recommended Columbia Gorge vacation rental is a favorite. Find out for yourself the magic you could experience here at the River Bend Lodge!

About Vacasa, WA - Columbia Gorge Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Beautiful Retreat with forest and meditative sound of the water all around. I want it to be my secret haven. Do I really have to share this? lol, Well I guess someone shared it's location with me originally, for which I'm grateful!

Little slice of paradise

  • 5 of 5

This house is breathtaking. Right on the water we were blown away by the sight of the crystal blue water! It was fairly easy to locate, but if you need to go into town it's a bit of a drive. The house was clean, the fireplace is made out of some pretty spectacular rocks. Everyone had a fun time in the hot tub, checking out the river and cooking in the kitchen with a view! The beds were comfortable, but some of the kitchen outlets shorted out if you plug too much in them. Also, the coffee grinder did NOT work, so we had to run into town, and the fridge didnt seem to get very cold, we had a hard time keeping ice cubes. The only other drawback is that the house echos quite a bit so if you are staying with people who like to stay up, it is easy to hear everything! We had a blast here and I would stay again 100%! So much wildlife, golden eagle, american dipper, belted kingfisher, merganser, brown bat! All so wonderful!

My husband and I spent a weekend at the lodge for our honeymoon. The cabin is beautiful, cozy, and well furnished. The location on the breathtaking river bend is to die for! We can't wait to bring our families back to visit in the summertime!

Beautiful, quiet retreat

  • 5 of 5

It was a wonderful location for a reunion of friends. Plenty of space and sleeping accommodations. As noted in some of the other reviews, you may want to bring your own additional firewood. The view of the river and water fall was relaxing. WiFi seemed to work pretty well, although we limited our time on it. Would definitely stay there again.
