Wonderful cabin in a beautiful setting. Hosts recommended great eating spot not too far away. Appreciated the text from host giving helpful driving directions so that we found the spot with no problem at all. Would definitely come back for a longer stay so that we could enjoy more of the outside activities all around. You will not be disappointed! Even better than the pics on website!
This was my first Airbnb experience. Nicky was very friendly and welcoming. The ranch is beautiful and it was fun to "hang out" at an Alpaca Ranch - another first for me. The unit we stayed in was nice, clean, and we enjoyed sitting out on the deck in the evening. We planned to sit in the hot tub and/or enjoy a fire in the fire pit but we were too tired after hiking earlier that day. We very much enjoyed our stay.
What a wonderful place. Upon arrival Matt greeted us and took time to show us around, introduce us to all the animals, and answer questions about the ranch. Our one year old daughter really loved it when Matt's boys brought over a duck and a rabbit for her to pet. The room was exactly as described, comfortable, and spotless. It was a quick drive into White Salmon for delicious breakfast and wine tasting the following day. I only wish we had more time to spend on this beautiful property. We will be back!
This was paradise on earth--a beautiful, beautiful place to stay! It's very clean, and if you love being close to nature while still maintaining some level of luxury (hot tub, gas fireplace in room, comfy beds and sofa, etc), this is THE PLACE!! Plus, Matt and Micki were so nice and welcoming, our stay here couldn't have been more enjoyable!! They helped us with some ideas of local things to do, split wood for a campfire, gave a private tour to my daughter of all the animals on their ranch--it was truly memorable.
Steelhead Ranch was a great weekend getaway from the city. The host was friendly, responsive, and offered some great advice on where to visit and eat in the area. If you're adventurous, I definitely recommend checking out the ice cave about 20 minutes away (Matt the host kindly lent me a headlamp). If you like beer, I'd also suggest Pfriem Family Brewers on the way back to Portland.
Beautiful place. Great hot tub and fire pit. Owners are friendly and accommodating to guests. We would definitely choose to stay here again!
Our overnight at Steelhead was a wonderful way to get out of Portland. The farm is beautiful and relaxing with the most gracious owners/hosts. The guest cabin is spacious and comfortable. We will be back, especially to see Chevas!
