Counting Eagles Castle Getaway, known locally as just "The Castle", is a Lyle, Washington one bedroom vacation getaway unlike any other you've seen before! Here, your stay is owner-hosted, which means that while you'll have a private floor all to yourself, the owners are right nearby upstairs to offer friendly company and maybe even concierge and local touring services, if required.
This Columbia Gorge retreat is ideal for a group of up to two guests, an infant, and child under ten. While here, you'll have your own private living room, game room, sitting room, kitchenette, and gorgeous wrap-around decks! Gaze out at the far-reaching views while you kick back and relax in style at this beautiful, one-of-a-kind property.
Visit the upstairs level to peruse and enjoy the collectibles, art, and antiques - perhaps you'll even get a tour from hosts Bill and Diane. Then, head downstairs to your own private suite. You'll have a cozy living room with a plush sofa and chairs for relaxing and watching a DVD on the plasma TV after a long day out exploring the wondrous Columbia River Gorge. And right outside the windows (and from the deck) you'll have a stunning view!
Your spacious living area also includes a dining table and granite breakfast bar. A kitchenette with a microwave, refrigerator, toaster oven, and coffee maker is perfect for preparing light meals and snacks, but you'll also have full kitchen privileges upstairs, so you could easily prepare a more complicated meal there, then bring it down to your floor to for dining at your private table.
The sliding glass doors right off the living area lead out to an expansive deck with panoramic views of the area. Sit outside with a glass of port as the sun goes down - you'll have picturesque vistas of Klickitat Canyon and all the mountains in the distance to savor. There's Mt. Adams, Mt. Hood, Mt. Rainier, Mt. Gilbert, and the Simcoes. You'll even be able to see all the way to the Horse Heaven Hills!
Depending on the time of year, the sights will change from spring wildflowers to breathtaking summer sunsets. In the fall, the great horned owls will come back to the area. And in winter, you may even get glimpses of eagles flying overhead. Year-round, wildlife viewing may include deer, wild turkey, hawks, elk, bear, and more so be sure to bring your camera to capture it all!
When it's time to turn in, the bedroom has a comfortable, queen sized bed with lovely, floral bedding. There's also a child's crib in the corner of the room, as well as a full bath. For younger guests, a cute sleeping nook with a child-sized bed is the perfect spot to head off to dream-land. In addition there's a washer and dryer available to keep everyone in clean and warm socks and WiFi throughout the home to stay in touch while on vacation.
If you're organizing a holiday or other special retreat, this Counting Eagles Getaway can make a truly magical location. Over the winter holidays, the house is fully decorated with all the surroundings for a memorable escape. Spend the day out exploring the Columbia Gorge - wine tasting, hiking, biking, or apple-picking, then come back for a memorable evening with your loved ones.
While out and about, you can experience the natural beauty that the Gorge is famous for - jagged basalt cliffs, waterfalls, the canyon. This area is a prime location for windsurfing, as well as hydroelectric dams. From here, the charming town of Hood River is just 13 miles east and to the west - The Dalles is an equal distance away. Both locations have restaurants, shops, and galleries, with the drive in either direction boasting amazing scenery.
This Lyle vacation rental, with its rooms full of antiques and knowledgeable hosts, is a unique way to spend time in the majestic Columbia River Gorge whether you head out each day for an outdoor adventure or just relax on your deck, counting eagles and enjoying a cool breeze.
