There is an old Chinese proverb that says, “The mark of a successful man is one that has spent an entire day on the bank of a river without feeling guilty about it.”
There is no need to feel guilty about spending your vacation by the Columbia River; you’ve earned it. If you are going to treat yourself to a fabulous vacation here, you may as well go all the way and stay in a luxurious vacation rental with a remarkable view of the river.
Arrived Now can find you a home where you will be able to see the river by just looking out the window or sitting on your huge patio. The river is surrounded by gorgeous mountains, majestic trees and colorful wildflowers.
Our homes feature everything you will need to make your trip comfortable. The bedrooms have plenty of storage space and come equipped with comfortable beds and fine linens. We also offer kitchens that contain every appliance you will need to make a gourmet meal and all the plates and silverware you will need to enjoy that meal.
The river offers many exciting water sports for you to enjoy. You can take a raft or kayak ride or even try wind sailing or kite surfing. If those things sound exciting, but difficult, fear not, as there are plenty of companies that offer lessons for beginners.
If you prefer to let someone else do the driving, you can head over to Cascade Locks, where you can take a ride on the Sternwheeler. This classic ship will take you down the river in style while you listen to the narrated history of the Columbia Gorge. You can take a daytime sightseeing tour or a dinner cruise at night.
If you’d rather just gaze at the river from the comfort and safety of a restaurant, you have several options. The Bridgeside Restaurant serves salads, burgers and libations. As the name suggest, it is right off the Bridge of the Gods. The Locks Waterfront Grill is right near the boat docks and offers American fare. Clark & Lewie’s Travelers Rest Saloon & Grill offers upscale pub food in a restaurant that sits right on the Columbia.
No matter how you decide to enjoy the river, Arrived Now will find you the perfect place to stay. Call us at 800-215-9880 today!
