The space

River's Rest can now sleep up to eight people. One queen size Beauty Rest Bed in first bedroom, a comfortable double hide-a-bed in living quarters, and two extra long Beauty Rest Twin Beds in Sleeping Nooks.
River's Rest now has a second bedroom to accommodate 6 to 8 guests. It includes another twin bed and a full-size fold out bed!. However, this bedroom is attached to the main bedroom so it does lack privacy. The second bedroom is great for children or for a slumber party or bridesmaid retreat.

Arrive anytime after 3PM and you can stay until 12PM on your last day.
(Just in case one last hike is desired)

Once you register, I will help you plan an itinerary as there are so many choices. Before your arrival, I will Email you additional information about other possible adventures close by. There is a notebook about 'one day' adventures you can choose to explore while you are here.

There is wifi on the premises, a video and a DVD library. A full kitchen minus dishwasher awaits you as does a bathtub big enough for serious soaking! No need to bring coffee, creamer and sugar!

Decks with rockers are yours to enjoy while watching the river and wildlife. A magical tree house is here for you to enjoy too.
This apartment is a great place for a slumber party or retreat!

This is an upstairs apartment with a deck overlooking the river. So, you will need to be able to climb stairs. The first floor is a shop and a garage that is not used while guests are staying at Rivers rest. So it is very private (with locks) and you are in a separate building from my home.

Children do need to be supervised at all times because of the River Access. There is a Graco crib-bed if needed. Pets are allowed as long as your pet stays on your lap, if necessary, and remains off the furniture and beds. When you leave Rivers Rest for your daily adventures, it is appreciated if your pet goes with you.
We ask that your dog stays outside until dry!

This is a great space for a bride and her bridesmaids to have a slumber party and to get ready before the big wedding at Capehorn Estates! (20 minutes away)

I received a thank-you card that said...
"We now have a problem.
We will expect ever place we stay
to be as nice as your
"Get-away Apartment."

I would love to share this corner of the world with you. This part of the Pacific Northwest, including the Columbia Gorge, is quite beautiful!

Rivers Rest was a wonderful base for my family (6 adults) to explore the area. The apartment is clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated and all of us enjoyed the collection of local literature. Despite the rain we enjoyed the gorgeous view out to the river. Cindy was a perfect host sending loads of emails and information through to me both before and during our stay (although I was too busy to reply!). Thanks Cindy, we hope to retreat to your beautiful home again.

The house was perfect, the view of the river was perfect and the area next to the river was great for relaxing. It was nice spending a couple days in a secluded area where all you can hear is the river. I wish I could stay forever!

Cindy's place is so comfy and relaxing. She is more than willing to share local tips and has some good waterfalls to direct you to on the Washington side of the river. We had planned to explore the Oregon half, but literally every trail we wanted to see was closed due to wildfires. Cindy's tips helped us save our one day of sunshine and still get in a good hike! Thanks for having us and our pooch!

Where to begin! Cindy is the perfect example of how an Airbnb should operate. She has prepared everything! From the kitchen amenities to a first aid kit, Rivers Rest was the perfect getaway location without worrying about what she would and wouldn't have. The location is breathetaking with views of the river down below, the clouds slowly drifting in-between the mountains, and (when we traveled) the rain made the atmosphere very cozy echoing off of the roof. There are also two adorable cats that come around here and there that you feed with the cat food already provided. When you first walk in, you immediately take a deep breathe and realize this is the perfect location for relaxing from a busy work life in the city. On the left side wall, there are laminated lists of local shops and things to do, towns nearby to explore, the instructions and layout of the building and more! She has thought of it all! Entertainment includes classic Disney VHS's, some DVDs, magazines, books, some dress up clothes for kids, and Apple TV with written instructions on how to operate it! The bathroom was very well prepared with toiletries already stocked for you, rags and drying towels nearly folded, and a first aid kit above the toilet. The only downside I would say about the home is the stink bugs that come in. But wouldn't you know it, Cindy was prepared! A large can of stink bug bug spray was right under the sink for us to use which was very helpful and useful. When choosing a location to rent out for a bit on Airbnb, the beautiful River's Rest is the ultimate package of everything you could ask for in that it is amazingly affordable, the guests feel welcomed and the owner takes care of the home and the guests. Although we are located in Portland, not too far away, Rivers Rest feels so far away and free from any honking horns from cars or sirens from an ambulance. I HIGHLY recommend this location. If you don't choose it, you are sincerely missing out.

It was absolutely beautiful and quiet! I’m so so so happy with this Airbnb and I go to a ton of different ones. Cindy was so sweet and accommodating and by far one of my favorite ones I’ve been to in the PNW. I am more then happy to come back he next time I visit! Referring to all of my friends now :)

Cindy's place is so beautiful! The river was right there, you could hear it. The garden is huge and the apartment has lots of room too. It isn't too far from town so you can get food etc. I especially loved all the different seating through out the garden to sit and reflect on God's beauty. So peaceful!
