Possibly the most peaceful spot on the planet, The Boat House will prove to be your special place away from home. Just minutes from Astoria, but a world away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, this two bedroom (one is a loft) floating paradise is just what the doctor ordered. You値l actually feel your blood pressure decrease as you descend the gang plank to this custom-built floating home. A fantastic creative retreat spot, the inspired juices seem somehow multiplied while all the other distractions are quickly removed to the background.
The loft area easily holds the king-size bed and the spacious reading nook/game area. Dow...nstairs is the queen-size bedroom, a comfortable bathroom, the great galley kitchen/dining area, and the living room. Bring your own kayak or boat, or use the paddle boat or canoe provided and get out on the water for yet another perspective of this peaceful waterway.
Surrounding the boat house, your view of the quiet John Day River is completely uninterrupted. The numerous eagles, osprey, great blue herons, and other plentiful, attractive wildlife will be the only diversions between peaceful naps. You know it will all be more than enough to keep you occupied. (This special place is strongly not recommended for youth 12 and under.)

What a place to get away for a few days. The home is so lovely and welcoming. We enjoyed sitting on the deck watching the birds fish. We didn't get a chance to use the paddle boat, but we did go canoeing down the river (up the river?).
