Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, Portland Reviews - Write a Review
Fabulous 😍😻👍! I love to drive I-84 east through the lush, green Columbia Gorge. Why? The trees 🌲🌳🎄🌴 on the right side of the road with the rock hills covered with moss, etc., and on the left side the magnificent scenery of the Columbia River. If it is a windy day, tons of kite boarders with their colorful gear are on the river in the blazing sun with the bluest sky 🌌! Everyone and everything is at its brightest and most glorious! Everything has come to life in the celebration🎉🎊🙌👏 of a new and relished day to enjoy 😌 all that Mother Earth 🌏🌐🌍🌎 has for us to see and experience! 😀 Quick Tip: If you are a traveler passing through the area do not miss Multnomah Falls; the sites there are the best - do not miss taking the hike on their trail, as it provides perfect 💯 places to get the best photos. They boast a historical lodge, great food, or a quick ice cream🍦🍨🍧 cone, and a NEVER-MISS GIFT 🎁💝🎀 SHOP; it has unique items you may want to see 👀, have, or give. Have fun! Be sure to take your time⌚⏳- it is well worth every minute! 🎯✔ out 💯% - ENJOY !!! 😀
This is a excellent B&B. Rooms are clean, large, and full of antiques. The staff is excellent and very helpful. The Breakfast is to die for. For those with dietary restrictions (gluten, dairy free ), they make certain you have plenty of food choices, which I definitely appreciated. You can't come away hungry from the table: specialized eggs, bacon, yogurt with berries and maple syrup, fresh fruit.
I live in the Columbia River Gorge and have, most of my life. I've moved away, in my youth, but I always returned. Geographically, it's a hard place to beat. You can drive 60 to 120 miles in any direction you like, and do whatever suits your activity of the day or week. Portland is near enough And far enough away, if that is your pleasure...not very often mine. There is snow or water skiing, hunting, fishing, hiking, sight seeing, etc...In my opinion, this is one of The most beautiful places in the world to live, play and raise a family. My biggest complaint is having so many libtards, in the metro areas, that try to take my guns away from me and the rest of the law abiding Oregonians. "From my cold, dead hands!!"
The view of the gorge was breathtaking. The weather was perfect there in Corbett at the retreat, we also were served a light breakfast, as well as light afternoon snack, after a very well put together lunch. It was an amazing day trip, I will never forget! The grounds were meticulously designed by Olmec, the man who designed Central park in N.Y.!
Our house in Cascade Locks has an amazing 270* unobstructed view of the Bridge of the God's, the mighty Columbia River and mountains near Stevenson WA and the Oregon side behind us while sitting on our wrap around deck. We walk 1/2 block to the store, post office, Cascade Ale House, Cascade Inn and Shell Gas station. Additionally, we're just half a block from the Pacific Crest Trail as it crosses under I-84. We can Drive, bike or hike 6 miles west to Multnomah Falls. Then take I-84 another 20 miles west and were in vibrant Portland Oregon. Just 15 miles east of our house is Hood River and world class kite boarding and wind surfing, mountain biking, eccentric food and wineries. It's a beautiful place to live and visit.
