When I bought this place, it was literally a junkyard, with dozens of rusted out cars spread around everywhere. I've spent the last 20 years cleaning it up in my spare time, and with my spare cash. This is my favorite place in the world. I want you to feel that way when you are here too. If you don't see something you might want, feel free to ask me any questions.

Events or parties are allowed, but please remember this is my home, and treat it with respect.
Guests assume all liability for use of the hot tub.
I charge a very minimal cleaning fee, because I expect you to clean up after yourself. If you don't, I will charge additional monies from your deposit.
Contact me before booking if you will have more than 10 guests, and we can make sure the arrangements will work for both of us.
If you bring more than the number of guests that you booked for, I charge double, PER NIGHT that they are there.
Please remember above all that this is my home that I am sharing with you. When you check out, leave it as you would want someone to leave your home.
I love to kick back and relax, read an entire book in one sitting. I am just as comfortable spending the entire day on my bike riding through the gorgeous countryside, or taking friends for a wine tour. The Columbia River Gorge is my favorite place in the world.
