My husband and I have the big white house on the corner. Too much room for the two of us. We have 2 rooms available, one room with a king size bed, and the other option is our large entertainment room than we have equipped with a twin bed (with foam topper) There is also a 60" flatscreen TV in this room, and numerous pieces of fitness equipment. You'll also have your own a private bath.
Free wi-fi and plenty of free parking. There is a bus to DT portland that runs several times a day for $3.50. Our sleepy little town is right on the Columbia River.
If you'd like to rent both rooms, the price is $100/night.
Guest will have either of the bedrooms and if the only guest elects to have the "king-room" they will also have access to the "entertainment room" with Big screen TV, dvd, and fitness equipment. Private bathroom is reserved for guest, and morning coffee/bagels and cereal is available downstairs.
Interaction with Guests
We try to greet each guest and offer restaurant or sightseeing recommendations. Other than that we give guest their privacy to come and go as they please and interact if they choose.
We love our quiet neighborhood, and our sleepy little town of St. Helens. We boast the original filming of Twilight was partially shot in our downtown area, including Bella's first home with her dad. The downtown area near the river has some great antique stores, and small locally operated shops and restaurants.
Public transportation is available all throughout Columbia county and also into Portland several times a day. If interested see "Columbia County Rider".
We expect guests to be considerate and respectful at all times, and "quiet" after 11pm.
Janet made me feel like part of her family. The home and neigborhood... welcoming. Can't recommend this Air b & b enough.
Janet is above and beyond kind and gracious. Our daughter stayed at their place while looking for a job. She felt like a family member the moment she walked in the door. This b & b is worth the trip and an extended stay.
Honestly one of the best experiences I have had yet. Janet is amazing and looks after every detail, from toiletries in the bathroom to a tea tray in my room. The bed wa a comfy the room was clean and the dogs were adorable but never a hassle. Great place to stay!
Great place to stay in St. Helens. The hosts are welcoming and attentive - bagels and coffee for breakfast was a nice touch - and they do their best to make you feel at home. The king bed is indeed a highlight. I didn't get a chance to use the exercise equipment, as I was busy from sun-up to sun-down, but looked top of the line. The bathroom is private and is filled with soaps, shampoos and lotions. We got a chance to visit with the hosts and share some beers and laughs. All in all, a perfect spot on the Columbia river.
Note that there are two dogs living in the home, which stayed on the ground floor and didn't enter the private bedroom or bathroom.

My husband and I own 3 athletic clubs. We are very active, and enjoy all types of excercise. We have 2 dogs, both non-shedding, non-allergenic that are very much a part of our life. We also love to travel. Most recently we returned from a cruise to Russia and Scandanavia. We have grown kids who live out of state and are proud grandparents as well. I love to cook, and we both appreciate all types of music, which we play throughout the home on our stereo system.
We hope our guests feel free to "do their own thing entirely" or to ask for suggestions, borrow our bikes, go on a hike with us or share a meal with us. We plan to tailor the way we host around each individual guest(s).
