Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Vancouver - Secret Sanctuary in the Gorge
2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
With amazing views of The Cascade Mountains, Multnomah falls, Mist falls and the Columbia river, this home is very rare and very special. Secluded, private, peaceful, and close to all the beauty and recreation the Columbia River Gorge has to offer!
WHAT A VIEW!
A sprawling view of the Gorge is laid out before you. From every window there is a view of Multnomah falls, the Cascade mountains, and the Columbia river.
This apartment is the downstairs level of the house, which includes 2 private bedrooms, a full bathroom, and a family room with Kitchenette (some describe it as a 'Mother-in-law quarters'). Access to the level is through the main entrance on the main floor. We live upstairs in the house, and access is similar to what you would encounter with a BnB or guest quarters. We do allow guests to use the main floor laundry room, And on some occasions have allowed access to our rec room, and the main floor kitchen as well.
Located in a small community of about 20 homes nestled between Washington's scenic route 14 and the Columbia River. This area of the Gorge is considered to be the most beautiful, yet is still fairly close to the Portland/Vancouver metropolitan areas. This relatively overlooked area, known to the locals as 'The sunny side of the Gorge', is quickly becoming the most desirable due to its location, views, recreational facilities, and the fact that it is South-facing which increases the amount of sun and length of the days,This community is peculiar in the fact that it even exists here in the Scenic area. It would not be allowed to be built today!
The Portland airport (PDX) is only 25 minutes away.

About Michael LaVoie
Got tired of looking and looking for the perfect property. One that had that special 'I could live here the rest of my life' property. I decided to start in the one place I loved the most... the Scenic Columbia River Gorge.
Michael LaVoie purchased this apartment in 2011
Why Michael LaVoie chose Vancouver
The view! of course the view.
What makes this apartment unique
It's very ZEN here... Watching waterfalls, The river, the mountains, the misty clouds, the trees, the birds, the barges, and when the evening falls, the slow constant stream of glowing headlights traveling along the highway on the other side of the river is hypnotizing.
