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.

The space

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. :)

Guest access

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.

We do accept one night stays however for three day week-ends or local festivals/events (ie, Gorge Grass Festival, Outrigger Races, Blues and Brews etc.) we may require a minimum of two nights.

Great home away from home. Sandy and family have thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable. Close to Stevenson and all amenities of the town. Close to nature and all the Gorge has to offer.

Airbnb should hire Sandy to teach hosting classes. With an eye for details, she makes sure her guests have every convenience and does an amazing job of making it so easy to maneuver her studio apartment and the Gorge area. She and Bob have a vast knowledge of the area and are more than willing to give you pointers about things to see and enjoy while visiting this beautiful paradise. If you love the outdoors, you will relish every minute of your stay at The Dragonfly. We really loved making use of the shared deck for breakfast and a couple of dinners. They were even gracious about allowing us to pick berries that were in season. What a yummy bonus! There is more to do in the area than time allowed but we made the most of four glorious days! Highly recommended!

This is a delightful secluded place and a perfect spot to explore the many waterfalls along the Columbia River Gorge and surrounding area. Sandy has designed this basement apt with lots of little extras - lots of counter space in bathroom and mini kitchen, closet space and many hooks for odds and ends everywhere. There are lots of annotated notebooks with recommended hikes and activities around as well as Sandy sharing her favorites. Sandy even shared her fresh picked delicious strawberries with us - not once but twice. There is a wonderful shared deck on the house for relaxing in the evening or morning ! It was a wonderful stay !

Sandy is extremely accommodating and quick to respond. She made the entire process very simple and provided above and beyond what I could ask for. (Plus there's a nice breakfast bonus the first morning!)

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.
