Nestled among tall trees situated in the crook of Big Buck Creek and the wild & scenic White Salmon River; Spirit Lodge is just what you’ve been longing for. Quiet, cozy and a truly beautiful cabin retreat with a waterfall nearby, and a swing over the river.

Der Wohnraum

Come to glorious White Salmon and take some quality time to retreat in our beloved Spirit Lodge.

We offer visitors a brand new “American Leather” Comfort Queen size Sofa Bed that gets rave reviews. We can have it pulled out and made as a bed before you arrive, or you can easily pull it at your convenience.

There's an upper loft with ladder to two firm single pads with sleeping bags above, great for the kids or the kids at heart :).
This cozy abode has a spiffy new kitchen, an old wood stove, high quality composting toilet (very clean and no smell) and a round stall shower.
We have plenty of parking, a shaded porch and a gas barbeque. You can hear the sound of the creek and the river from inside the Lodge (with the large windows open), and within a few seconds walk you can see it.

We have wireless wifi and cell coverage for our guests.

Zugang für Gäste

We have a washer/dryer at our Host House next door that is available upon request.

Interaktion mit Gästen

We live at the Host House very close by, but it is completely separate. We will greet you kindly, then give you your privacy unless you need us for anything.

How the Spirit Lodge got her Name


As historians and archeologists can attest, Native Americans have inhabited this area for at least 13,000 years.
When Lewis and Clark floated down the Columbia River (in 1802) with the Corps of Discovery, it changed Native American’s ancestral habitat forever.
At that time, the Columbia Gorge was home to a wide variety of Tribes all along the banks of the waterways and tributaries that carry glacier flow on down to the Big River itself.
Several years ago, our cabin in front of the Lodge was sitting at the mouth of old Northwestern Lake. 2012 was the year Pacific Corps removed the 100 year old Condit dam, causing the water to move much more quickly, returning itself into the original river bed. The banks are still trying to catch up with the river. When you walk out into the front of our cabin, (where the swing is) you can see below old stumps of the trees that were at the water’s edge a century ago when they put in the dam. Looking up, you might notice the trees are tilting towards the water, instead of standing straight and tall, due to profound land shifts. Because we are situated at the fork where Big Buck Creek joins the White Salmon, this formed an natural eddy that built up only silt and sand creating the unstable bank in front of our cabin. Pacific Corps has tried a number of approaches (unsuccessfully) to keep the embankment from continuing to slide down into the river. For this reason we ask you to use only the marked path to get down to creek and/or river. Two other homes on either side of Big Buck Creek had to be removed; as were two cabins across the way, all due to erosion. A word to the wise . . .
Notably, as a team of specialists worked on the slope in front of the cabin last year, Indian artifacts started showing up. Where you stand as you read these words is a “documented” site where local Natives dwelt (right here) in a tiny village. Originally, it was set under the general vicinity where we felt “inspired” to put our Spirit Lodge. You can see that the Lodge is decorated to honor the departed Natives who once lived here. We feel their spirits every day in this sacred precinct we call home. You’ll see precious items in the Lodge, like the found obsidian and eagle feathers. Also, the famous Edward Curtis picture of Chief Joseph (the Nez Perce hero) you can read his story in the book (Klickitat Indians) on the coffee table(URL HIDDEN)We are so privileged to be able to share this magical place with you. Might we suggest you take the time to walk the path we inscribed from the front of the tent in our yard (on the north corner) and proceed down to the confluence of the waterways below. Sit in the chairs provided and imagine life here two hundred years ago, if you will.

Oma could not have been more accommodating! The cute cabin is exactly like in the pictures. A nice hidden oasis in the hills of the Columbia River gorge. What a cute place to stay!

It was great stay in such a amazing nature. The house was really well maintained, nice and cool. They have so many bed options and really comfortable luxurious sofa bed. There is a river just by the house. Nice tracking course was pretty close too. They let us know secret tiny waterfall on tracking trail which is gorgeous. And we liked their eco friendly way to live. Highly recommend!

First we want to introduce you to your host @ Grandma's house. Debbie Taylor.
In her own words: I recently moved back to the Pacific NW and am excited to be your host at Gma's House. I am a landscape designer, dabble in art and interior design, and enjoy gardening and reading. I have had the opportunity to travel overseas several times. Highlights include attending a wedding in Scotland complete with kilts, safari in Kenya and taking buses through Tanzania, Malawi, and Zambia to see Victoria Falls. I have three grown daughters and two grandchildren.

Then there is Oma and Lindy out at White Salmon running the Spirit Lodge.
We are a couple of grandmas in our 70's. Living out our golden years on the White Salmon River. Early on, we both had memorable adventures in our separate lives. Oma spent the late 1960's in Vietnam as a musician, later she lived 12 years in the Ozarks as a midwife and farmer. Lindy grew up in Hollywood, California and spent years in Isla Vista running a popular coffee house called Borsodi's, next to UCSB with her partner Robert Borsodi. Both glamour and challenges all around for everyone then.
Oma and Lindy met in their 40's and became life companions. They created Conscious Choice (a mobile food business) and began crafting videos for the Bahai's as well as local non-profits in the area. They traveled to East Africa and Israel and were deeply moved by all of their experiences.
In 2005, they migrated to the Pacific NorthWest to be with Lindy's family and help raise the grandchildren. They quickly fell in love with the area.
Presently Oma and Lindy live in the cabin next to the Spirit Lodge. Come see us and our magnificent surroundings!
