On a trip to the coast we decided to stay here versus Skamania Lodge where we've stayed before. Next time back to Skamania. The cabins are ok but hardly luxury. The tv wouldn't work with direct tv, older behemoth of a set that wouldn't respond. Pillows and bedding were average or poor. Considering the price not a good value. About 40 feet from busy road and clear road noise. They did a nice job of landscaping and a good attempt but really comparable to a lot of basic hotel rooms. We stayed at the Coast Cabins on the trip in Oregon that defined luxury and a sharp contrast.

Room Tip: Try to have a cabin further from the road.

We originally wanted to stay on the Oregon side, where most of the activity is centered, but the reviews on TA convinced us otherwise - and I'm glad they did,

We stayed in the Mt St Helens cabin. It was the only one available when we booked, and I wasn't sure about paying the extra. However, it is beautifully set up, looks practically new, and feels secluded, so I was happy that was our only option. The three newer cabins definitely have a better location than the others, particularly if you want to sit on the deck and enjoy the beautiful views. The grounds themselves are well layed out, with multiple areas to sit and enjoy. There's also a short walk through the brambles - wild blackberries ripe for picking!

Pete, the innkeeper, clearly has pride in the design of the new cabins, and in the overall guest experience. Nothing was too much trouble, and the first question was always "Is there anything else I can do for you". He had great suggestions for restaurants and daily activities, and didn't steer us wrong once.

The breakfast was excellent - delivered to the cabin (only if you have one of the three new cabins). Way too much food, but so good you have to try it all. Each day there were three different dishes, along with orange juice.

This is a beautiful place to stay for a few days, with enough hikes and a couple of small towns nearby to keep it interesting. It's about a 25 minute ride into Hood River, so after a couple of days it may feel a little remote. But if you're planning a quick break in Columbia River Valley, I would heartily recommend it.

My husband and I stayed at Carson on our Wedding Night, the service and luxury was over the top. It was like being in our own little world of comfort surrounded by the beautiful scenery of the Gorge. Jennifer in the main office stayed late and her and her daughter helped carry me and my Wedding dress up to the room. We were spoiled every step of the way. I have since had my Aunt and her Husband stay and we got a cabin for my Sister and her Husband on their honeymoon! Hands down the most romantic comfortable place we have ever been. The owners have become some of my favorite people they really care about making sure you get to escape completely! We are in love with Carson Ridge Cabin.

Room Tip: Any Cabin is a good one you will feel like you are in a private place in the woods its awesome!

Loved having our own cabin. The cabin was clean and appeared to have been renovated in the last year.There is a fridge along with a decent sized TV. There is some road noise form trucks going to a sawmill but not so as to be really annoying.

Got to meet the owner Pete Steadman and he was very friendly and knowledgeable as to places to go in the area. The Innkeeper Stacey is very friendly and can't do enough for you. The grounds and very interesting and behind the cabins is a large field where one can travel the trails and pick blackberries or lie in a hammock in the pine trees.

This location is great to see all the sights along the Columbia River and yet is only 45 mins east of Portland.

LOVE the grounds, cabins with fully equipped amenities for the most romantic get away a couple could hope for! The staff are amazing, constantly asking, "what can I get you or do for you?" - We found this place by accident and have truly fallen in love so much so we decided to have our wedding there! We originally stayed there to scope out other areas for our wedding and ended up enjoying our cabin so much we did not want to leave! ;-)
Pete, Latisha and Staci are beyond fantastic and truly know how to create a gorgeous setting for those needing to relax and tap into a little romance.
OH and they have the most comfortable beds I have slept outside of our own!!! Plus the sheets are AMAZING!

Room Tip: The larger cabins are a bit more, but completely worth the price. They are so cozy, filled with lots...

Carson Ridge Cabins were a perfect getaway for us. The hubby and I work at home during the summer and needed a change of scenery, and this could not have been better for us. Quiet, fresh air, lovely folks running the place, great hiking and wonderful food in the area and served for breakfast. Exceeded my expectations!
