The Dragonfly Studio Apt. was recently remodeled and is located at the end of a secluded private drive approx. 1 mile east of Stevenson. Safe parking and area to off load bikes, kayaks, etc. is all part of our casual environment. Entry is located below the main living area of our home and includes a kitchenette with the basics you need for simple cooking. Room includes coffee, queen sized bed, tile shower, Wireless WiFi, Dish TV and DVD player.
We are approximately 1 mile east of Stevenson. An intermediate walk with some ups and downs. We are on a private drive with just one neighbor. You will drive past their house and the driveway dead-ends at our house. Just look for the Dragonfly on the wall and pull straight down and park. We have a 3 year old black lab named "Sunny" . Sunny is not allowed in your space......though she may try and tell you otherwise. :)
New this season: Guests have access to the shared outside deck by a new staircase located right outside their entrance. A new gas grill has also been added for your use. A continental breakfast is provided for your first morning. Items provided are oatmeal, milk, yogurt, granola, fresh fruit, coffee and tea.
Interaction with guests
We try and be sensitive to what our guests desire. We mostly will leave our guests alone for their privacy but are happy to answer any questions you might have. We have an active outdoor lifestyle in our community but can usually be reached by text if we aren't home. We have two molded plastic kayaks (approx. 10-12 ft that are available for loan IF you can transport on your own vehicle.) These kayaks are heavier and indestructible. We also have life vests, paddles and beach towels to loan.
Other things to note
Stevenson has delightful shops, restaurants and a beautiful library (currently July-Sept. '17 undergoing a remodel) and numerous trails close by. We have lived here many years and will be happy to share our favorite hikes etc. There are hiking books in the room. There are also menus from the local restaurants. There are a variety of yummy restaurants to choose from. If you fly in and would like to borrow an ice box for those warm days please be sure to ask.

Bob and Sandy chose Stevenson as the all around spot to raise their family (now grown and gone) and play in the Gorge. Windsurfing at Bob's Beach, kayaking, hiking, fishing and pickle ball are just a few of the local activities enjoyed. This is a great community and we enjoy sharing it with others.
