Located near the Long Beach Peninsula and a four-mile long bridge to Astoria, OR, Fort Columbia State Park sits in a secluded area overlooking the Columbia River. The park has wooded hiking trails, historical buildings, bunkers, and a museum. A short drive leads to charming towns, breezy coastal dunes, and saltwater marshes on the peninsula.
Situated on the highest point at the fort, the Steward's House offers a spectacular view of the Columbia River from a broad open porch. The cozy two-story building, fully refurbished and updated, has retained its lovely original features. Adding to the old-time charm of the building are polished hardwood floors, wooden stairs leading to two bedrooms with queen-size beds and quilted covers, a living room with pressed-tin ceilings, an antique wood stove (converted to propane), and an antique claw-foot bathtub. The living room has a TV and DVD player, and the country-style kitchen has modern appliances.
The Steward's house can accommodate up to four guests.
