~A National Geographic Setting~
“A BnB for all Seasons!”
Selected for National Geographic’s
National Geographic selected MapleRidge House to interview witnesses to the Mt St Helens eruption. American Volcano was released world-wide in May 2020, and MapleRidge House is part of the story!
A place named after an abundance of Maple trees and mountain views, MapleRidge House has breathtaking vistas of the Cascade foothills and the Lewis River Valley.
Stroll our glorious private twenty acres. Relax on your deck with a glass of wine or your favorite brew. Then again, you might prefer to drive just 10 short miles to the glitter and excitement of our world famous Ilani Casino.

Other things to note:
MapleRidge is a ground level home and the house sits on a hillside. A dozen gentle steps lead up and down the side of the house to the BnB entrance. It is important to note this is a country home, on our own water well (best, cold drinking water ever) and septic. This means are judicious in our use of these oft taken-for-granted necessities. Power has been off for as long as 2 hours over the last 4 years, and we are prepared for that, if you are too. If any of this concerns you, please contact us for more specific information.
