Our cabin is on a quiet country road, over looking the Columbia river, and Oregon. It is 45 min. from Long Beach or Astoria. Sit on the porch and watch river traffic, eagles and deer. Build a fire and play games or read. Valhalla cabin, is a true log cabin. It has 2 bedrooms, 1 with a view of the river, and a loft that kids love. There is fireplace. The front porch runs the length of the house and has a deep roof, so it can be enjoyed in any weather. Very private

The space

$10 per person after the first 2 does NOT apply to guests 2 yrs. old and under. To be able to share my cabin and the beauty that surrounds it means a lot to me. You will need to bring your own firewood. Most of the places around the cabin are owned by cousins, and are vacation homes. The cabin is rustic, no WIFI and no cable TV. The kitchen is pretty complete. The beds are all new as are the sheets, towels, and kitchen flooring, and bedroom carpets. There are extra quilts and comforters as well as sleeping bags, if needed. There are a few old pieces that belonged to family members that have meaning for me and I enjoy seeing. I'm not sharing a space, I'm sharing part of my life. So please feel free to have a cozy fire, play some games, watch a movie, sit on the porch and enjoy the view. We provide pancake mix, syrup, jam, a variety of coffees and teas, quick breads, Swiss Miss, and Tang for breakfast. We also provide sheep milk soap, so good for your skin. Please take home any unused jam, breads and soap. We would also like your feed back, what you liked what you didn't like so please leave a review on airbnb. Fire wood for sale is provided by my yard man. If you need some, just let Judy know.

Guest access

You will have the entire cabin to yourself. There is a fireplace, games and movies. Washer and dryer are available, just ask Judy, or let me know in an e-mail. Otherwise we keep the garage locked. The beach across the road is private, so there is no access to it. The same goes for the area up behind the cabin. There is a boat launch and fishing near by.

Interaction with guests

We usually leave a key for our guests. This way they can arrive at any time after 2pm. My sister, Judy is available welcome you to the cabin and go over everything with you. She will gladly answer any questions and suggest places to eat, sites to see and give basic directions. You would also ask her for fire wood and access to the washer and dryer. She is also available by phone if you need to get in touch with us for any reason. Check in is from 2pm-8pm. If you would like Judy to meet you at the cabin, please let me know so that I can set it up. Please let me know what time to expect you so that Judy will be there to greet you and give you the key.

Other things to note

The beach across the road is off limits, as it is a private beach. We have clam guns, rubber boots, and clam nets available if, you would like to try your hand at clam digging. There is a boat launch near by and plenty of good fishing. Not available for deer or elk hunters, as the area is posted no hunting. There is a great farmers market on Sunday in Astoria and Ilwaco on Saturdays, and Long Beach on Fridaysgv starting in May. The cabin is on a well. If you don't like well water, please bring bottled water.

I found this wonderful place which is a great get away from this bustling world I deal with. It was a great start for my alternate trip and I felt no regret not being on a long drive to the now chilly Rockies in Canada which I had to cancel due to eye problems . My trip started in San Francisco. I picked up my mom in Eugene and drove to my son's home in Portland before cancelling my Canada vacation. From Portland it was a pleasant drive to Valerie's place a bit off the beaten path. With luck in a break in the weather, relaxing on the porch and watching the Columbia, the beautiful sky and visiting deer the time passed too quickly. I would recommend bringing a few presto logs to add to the ambiance and lighting an oil lamp or two. The well stocked kitchen was a plus as was the comfy bed. I would love to return with family or friends if I have the chance.

The driveway is a little tricky. If you had a low to the ground car if might not be the best for it. The view is ASTOUNDING! The quiet is blissful. The cabin was comfy but the deep porch with the view was our very favorite part.

The place was perfect. Amazing views, very secluded and peaceful. Val's instructions were also very clear and we were made to feel extremely welcome. Would certainly come back for a second visit.

For a real - GENUINE - unplugged get-away, THIS IS IT! There is, however, excellent phone reception, so you're not totally isolated from civilization. What a great way to spend quality time with the family while enjoying all that the Columbia River and the Oregon / Washington Coast has to offer!

I'm in my mid 50's and have a great love for animals, sheep, cats and rabbits especially. We also have a home in central Washington, in the Yakima Valley. My husband, Mike, works as a surveyor and, at 66 still plays softball. I'm retired from Safeway but still quite active. I'm a 4-H leader, I love to garden and do canning, show my rabbits and sheep, make and sell quilts and soap. I'm learning to make different types of sheep cheese. We love to travel and meet new people, try new things. I've always told my kids to travel, to try different foods, meet new people, it will help you to become a better you. Airbnb is a new way of meeting new people and learn something new/different.
Our Airbnb guests will see that we like a simple life, thus no WIFI or cable. We love to play games/cards. We also like doing puzzles. We just like to talk to and interact with our friends and family, too many electronics can get in the way. We feel the same way when we travel. We get out and walk around. We like to see the area and meet the people. We're always up for trying new foods and listening to local music.
