Beautiful location, super helpful/kind staff and beautiful cottage with 2 beds and baths. Absolutely would stay again The cottage has been updated and is very clean comfortable. The only suggestion to the owner is to add a shower in the master bathroom. Jetted tub is nice if your on a romantic get away but for a family shower please :-)

Thanks for your review, glad you had a nice time with the family! I'll look into the idea of adding a shower to the master bathroom, retrofitting the Jacuzzi tub. We will continue to make improvements to our special place so your family will always have a spot to enjoy time together. Thanks again!

We were on a two-week trip through the northwest, and stayed one night at the Westcliff Lodge. By far, this was the best hotel we stayed in. The setting was amazing-we had a deck that looked out over the Columbia River, and the view was awesome. The entire setting was great-beautiful landscaping, gazebo and decks. Our room was large, clean,...

Thanks for your review! Yes, we did change our name a few weeks ago to fit better with our family's history and neighborhood. We'll be sure to mention it when we make our courtesy calls for reservations. Thanks again!

This was our second stay at The Vagabond. Wonderful park-like setting with beautiful views of the Columbia River. Although we did not luck in to a river view room, our accommodations were clean, spacious and pleasant - and the bed was wonderful! It's located conveniently to all sorts of tourist adventures including Mt. Hood, Cascade Locks, and the hot springs...

Thanks for visiting us again! Yes, this time of year can be busy; it's always best to give us a call to reserve a favorite room. We're putting together a few more outdoor activities for guests to enjoy as well, so there's always plenty to enjoy! Thanks again

The Wife and I stayed at this hotel a coupe of years ago and really enjoyed our short stay. We decided to have a mini vacation and picked this spot because of it's central location in the Gorge area. The name had been changed but it still the wonderful little almost resort like place we had visited before.

Can't beat the views and location here. Very hospitable staff and clean room. I will say this is good value because of the view and because the guest room is updated. But very small even with 2 queens for 2 adults and a small child. Having one window on the parking lot tho meant noise and lights from other guests...

Thanks for your review! Yes, we have a couple of buildings that have more modest-sized rooms (our Classic and Partial View buildings), and will continue to remodel/updating things so we can make your visit even better next time! Please do give us a call if you would like to stay in one of our glamping tents so we can reserve...

I stayed here with my two kids (6 and 9) and my dad, so we needed space and two good sized beds. The room had two queen size beds and still had plenty of room for all 4 of us. I paid more for a river-view room with a balcony and it was worth the extra cost. We had a...

We booked last minute and Westcliff was the only place that had a suite available for the five of us and that didn't require a 2-night minimum. We were also traveling with a dog. So kudos for flexibility! Westcliff made everything easy for us. We enjoyed our room very much. The kids especially loved the large jacuzzi tub in the...

I've stayed here many times under its old Vagabond Lodge name. Still the same family owners, still a clean, great value on a spectacular site on the gorge. While it is still an older place, they've done lots of renovations and added a new building as well. I stayed in one of those new rooms and they're really nice. I...
