The Space

The High Lonesome has amazing frontage and access to the East fork of the Lewis River. The river is cold and clear...and breathtaking. There is hiking right out the back door. The High Lonesome is a unique property, as there are 5 beds in the main area plus two cabins up the trail 75 yards that are available for larger groups. We can also pitch cabin tents for extra campers. Have extra family members in an RV? There is space. Lets talk about your event!

Guest Access

The guest house has two bedrooms with lodge pole bunks (two double beds, two twin beds) and a queen lodge pole bed in the other room. For over 8 guests, about 75 yards from the Guest House are two cabins that sleep an additional 8-12 people. Two futons in Big Cabin and 2 twin beds in the Small Cabin and each cabin has a loft for 2-4. There is also space to pitch tents and park an RV. Each guest over the first 8 is an additional $25 per night fee. There is a gas grill and two campfire rings, decks. The "Lonesome Owl" Western Town and the pirate ship play deck are available for the kids (Website hidden by Airbnb) We loan out Cornhole, Ladderball, Bocce, and a few other outdoor activities plus movies, books and games.

Interaction with Guests

Interaction would include a short tour: trails, beach, and other recreation options. It really depends on the needs of the group. My house is across the wide driveway from the guest house. Your cell phones won't work up here. We place a phone handset on the deck table for you to use. I work out of my house and will, most likely, be here. I won't bother you, but will be available for questions and a quick property tour. Want to learn some table top games? I can get you started!

The Neighborhood

To get to The High Lonesome you drive through a state campground. There is 3/4 mile of private road that follows the river with five houses. We are the last one. Afternoons are well spent on the deck with the view of the river or at the nice wide landing at out river beach. The stars at night are very bright as there is not much ambient light. Yacolt is the closest town. It is 10 miles away with a bank, a bar, a post office, a restaurant, a winery, and a grocery store/gas station. Check out the Chelatchie Prairie Railroad for a memorable train ride through the woods and along the river starting in Yacolt. Ape Caves is in the area, and the river is a popular spring kayaking destination. Mt St Helens? There is a ranger station about 25 minutes away. Not too exciting. The visitor center is a few HOURS away.

Getting Around

There is no public transportation. There is plenty of parking. It is one hour from the Portland airport. There are detailed driving directions that come up once booked. Please print them and have a paper copy in case your maps apps fail out here. Cell phones won't have coverage for the last 7 miles.

Other Things to Note

This is a gorgeous setting and a dramatic river frontage/beach. You will find it relaxing and refreshing to be here. There is no cell phone coverage or tv channels. Wi Fi is not accessible in the guest house, but it is across the driveway on the deck. Relax and just check in occasionally. Wifi is satellite and on broadband, so it limited to the adults, not kids or teens. Since I work out of my home, I need to be able to access the internet and not have it drained down with video. Our friends who visit with kids/teens appreciate this to get some uninterrupted time with them. There is a dvd player and tv. We have stocked a variety of movies, games and books. I have 2 dogs on the property. Friendly and used to new people being around. If you wish to bring a dog, there is a $25 per day, per dog, fee.

Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
