The Space

This is a one of a kind modern converted tugboat house on the Columbia River in a marina. Enjoy three decks with an unobstructed view looking West down the river.Enjoy a king size memory foam bed with an amazing view. It has the original wheel house with a double fold out futon bed and bamboo floors, beautiful for viewing Mt. Hood the sailboats and activities on the river. Bamboo floors also cover the living room with heated tile kitchen and bathroom floors.
You need to be able to walk up and down a ramp that is about 250 feet to the house boat and maneuver up and down narrow steep stairs.
The two closest restaurants are Salty's and The Sextant..Both have a great views of the Columbia River. Salty's is more of an upscale restaurant and The Sextant is more of a sports bar. There is a restaurant located three doors down from me called The Deck Restaurant, but is only open May 23rd through October 1.
The closest grocery store is located on Hayden Island which is around 5 miles away, with a Target, Ross ,Home Depot and other shopping available. There is a New Seasons store on 33rd.

Interaction with Guests

It is rare that I get to meet my guests as I am usually gone. I have great communication with my guest my text and calls, getting lost or any questions they may have.

The Neighborhood

The neighbors are so friendly...

Other Things to Note

Please NO DIVING OR JUMPING off the tughouse.
The water can get very shallow and you don't know what could be below the water. Also NO CHILDREN as it is not child proof and a huge liability. Remember that I do live 15 minutes from the Airport and planes do fly over my place. They start around 6:30 most morning, I am used to them and the geese that fly in. Sometimes they fight with each other and might be annoying to some.
It is such a wonderful place that it is worth it to me to live here.

House Rules
Check-in is after 2PM

Shoes must be taken OFF in the mud room before entry into the house. Things should be left neat and (URL HIDDEN) glasses to be set on wood furniture. Please do not eat on the couch and please respect my home. PLEASE do not contact the office at McCuddy's Marina. Please do not mistake the LARGE WHITE TUGHOUSE for mine, he does not appreciated the unwanted attention, VERY IMPORTANT....!!!
Also this is not to be used for a party house, inviting groups of people down is not ok. One more IMPORTANT rule, PLEASE no feminine products or anything that has not been eaten first to be flushed down the toilet, it will plug the honey pot.
