We LOVE the quiet natural beauty of this area and we find it a very restful get away from our hectic chaotic lifestyle plus we enjoy the modern & comfortable lodge-like feeling of this home. When we are here we go 'off schedule', reading, napping & watching the 'river parade' and doing whatever suits us whenever we feel like it.

Why Donna chose Kalama
So many of the homes along the river are jammed together but this great place sits on over 4 acres, is nestled in the trees and feels secluded and private.
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date. 50% refund for cancellations more than 30 days before check-in date.
Peace of the River - A relaxing retreat on Kalama River
When we walked in the door and saw the huge windows that look out over the river, all we could say was "Wow!". It's such a beautiful home and comfortable in every way. The whole house was very clean and very well supplied. We appreciated all the little touches...like firewood to burn in the fireplace, plenty of towels and everything you need in the kitchen. Donna was always very quick to reply to my questions and to let me know any information I needed before we arrived. We all enjoyed our week at Peace of the River very much! Thank you, Donna :)
Second stay and just as wonderful as the first. Great location and environment to unwind and relax away from a busy life.
Great place- sound of running river outside really peaceful. Highly recommend.
Our family enjoyed a nice Labor Day grill out on deck over looking river. We had a great stay!!
Thank you for your lovely
comments! We hope you have an opportunity to come back again.
King Salmon on the Columbia
Wonderful cabin with all the amenities. Great location 15 mins from our guided fishing trip. Very quite location.
Definitely we'll be back.
Thanks for a lovely review! We're so glad you enjoyed your stay at "Peace of the River". Hope your fishing (especially the catching part) went well. We look forward to hosting you again. Take Care, Donna
Quiet and cozy spacious house nestled by the Kalama River
This was a wonderful place to celebrate our daughter’s birthday. It’s very unassuming when you drive up but when you go inside the place really opens up and then you go downstairs and ... WOW. A beautiful large bedroom with giant windows give a beautiful view of the forest and the river. In evenings we relaxed on the outdoor decks listening to the river run by. In the day it was a short drive to numerous spots along the river where we parked and went in for a swim. Many people would pass by floating down to the bridge downstream. All in all a wonderful get-a-way vacation spot.
We're so happy you enjoyed your stay! We know how much we love it there but it's so nice to hear when others do too! Hope to have you back again.
Wonderful and quaint location away from the city
The location was great with access to river if you're an avid fisherman. It was the perfect gateway from the busy city life to come to this quaint cabin and recharge. Donna has been very accommodating and sweet with ensuring that everyone had made it and things were proper. If only the fish were so nice.
We often see herons fishing the shoals below, eagles flying overhead and once we saw an elk herd on the ridge across the river! And as noted by VRBO...Relax and Unwind in Southwest Washington.The scenic area of southwest Washington offers breathtaking scenery, sandy beaches, small port towns and all the activities of the Northern Cascade Mountains close by. The area is known for its fertile estuaries and centuries-old landmarks. Charted by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark in 1805, southwest Washington was considered the most desirable area to settle west of the Rocky Mountains. It now offers a delightful escape from city life for vacationers looking to relax and enjoy the spectacular local scenery.
