When’s the last time you did something for the first time?
Nothing beats getting away from everyday lives and escaping—just the two of you, or the whole family. Consider this a prime opportunity to reconnect and have some fun without any distractions.
Families OR couples looking for a stress-free escape will feel their blood pressure slow upon arriving at MapleRidge House, located atop the Lewis River at the foot of the Cascade Mountains.
That can mean a few days of golf at the award-winning Lewis River Golf Course, cozying up in front of our log fireplace, experiencing epic nature with a visit to Mt St Helens, relaxing in our outdoor steam sauna, or tackling a nearby hotspot like Ilani Casino.
In addition to our lovely log fireplace and an authentic Finnish steam sauna in the nearby woods, there is a private deck from which you can gaze at the mountains just outside your window.
Local activities and fun things to do!
Reveling in the outdoors is a No. 1 priority here, with the glorious Columbia River Gorge or the Mt. St. Helens Volcano just an hour away (with on-site naturalists leading private tours). And things don’t slow down in the winter, when activities include snowshoeing, and skiing.
