  • The Vista House at Crown Point was an easy to reach viewpoint off Rt 30, but of course tour busses found it easy too. The point offered majestic views of the Columbia River Gorge as the river wound it...  more »
  • We made a short visit here this summer. Park nearby and walk around to explore the view. It is lovely and gives perspective on the area. It is a windy area and on our rainy day visit we enjoyed watchi...  more »
  • Vista House offers a great view of the Columbia River. I think the reason for my 4, as opposed to 5, star review is because that's all there is to it: the view. In all fairness, the house was closed w...  more »

  • Feels like you're in another place as you drive up towards the Vista House with all the brick work along the road and how the road flows with the hills. The house itself, while centuries old, has been maintained fairly well. Tons of marble and old detail. Well worth the 45 minute excursion.
  • Loved the view of the Columbia gorge from the top of the house. They have a little museum below, a snack/coffee shop, souvenir, restroom. The Parking is free here which may get full very soon. You will get great perspectives from different locations - be it from the top of the vista house, or its base or when you walk 1 level down the road. A must go when you are around. The view of the gorge is breath taking. On July 4th, people flock around the place to have a view of the amazing fireworks in the city.
  • Beautiful place. Best to visit on a clear/partly cloudy day. Able to see far up and down the Columbia Gorge. Gift shop is decent and coffee is great!
  • WARNING: I would not advise visiting Vista House if the weather forecast for Corbett predicts winds higher than 10 mph. The approximately 700 ft elevation TRIPLES the strength of the wind. The day we visited, the wind forecast for Corbett was 14 mph and we found winds at Vista House to be about 45 mph. It was extremely difficult to walk. At one point, we laid down on the ground to avoid being blown over. Several people exiting the house were temporarily stranded on the stairs—there were people bracing themselves on the railing, not moving for several minutes. One family with young kids was holding onto the railing while the dad went to bring the car to pick them up (it is a short distance between the parking spaces and the stairs). I'm shocked that the place is open on days like this. That said, the views we did see were beautiful. If it had not been a windy day, I know we would've loved our visit.
  • What a gorgeous sight! Vista house is easy to get to and there's plenty of parking. The view is simply stunning. We also saw a bald eagle flying in the area. The Latourell Falls trailhead is about 5 minutes to the east and offers a short fun hike. I highly recommend going to both places!
