  • As most other reviewers commented, the view along the drive up and the parking lot is just breathtaking! That's because this is the summit of Crown Point, a basalt headland. Nicknamed "The Crown Jewel...  more »
  • So many people invade this place, it is definitely showing wear and tear but it still has an amazing charm. May be difficult to find parking, the place fills up even on a weekday. Very short to visit ...  more »
  • This was our first stop on a day tour from Portland to Mount Hood for views, waterfalls, and wine tasting. It was an excellent combination, although our tour guide was more knowledgeable about wines t...  more »

  • Super pretty view! We managed to show up on a lovely day with no clouds around. The house itself was beautiful and fun to explore. Plus the drive up to it is pretty too. All on all just a nice place to visit. They keep it very clean. And to my pokemon friends, there are two gyms up there and some stops as well. So, it's worth a visit for whatever kind of person you are. :)
  • Free amazing scenic views of the Columbia River Gorge just 20 minutes outside of Portland. Not to be missed!!! Dedicated 100 years ago, this location is on of if not the best high elevation scenic outlook just 8 minutes of US 84. Building has 3 levels. Upper deck for best views, ground floor hold a beautiful US flag and us decorated with stained glass and beautiful architecture. Bottom level hold the gift shop, bathroom, cafe with snacks and coffee, as well as a small self-guided tour explaining about the history of Vista House.
  • Great place to stop even if you don't go inside. Panoramic views of the river from Portland to Mount Hood. Can get crowded so recommend going early in the morning. Inside is very nice with thoughtful quotes, historic pictures, docents, a gift shop, a coffee shop, deluxe bathrooms and a viewing deck. They really went all out when they built this thing! Turned 100 years old this year. Happy centennial!
  • Gorgeous views of the Columbia River with some wonderful displays of the history of the area and the scenic highway. As much of the area was affected by wildfire recently, the guides working here were super helpful in providing info about what was open and how to get to it. They offered a map and gave some great tips. This is a wonderful place to start a trek through the beautiful gorge area. There is also a small coffee shop inside.
  • Great view of the gorge! Nice drive up though the road is very narrow and rough (not recommend for larger vehicles) .the parking lot is small both in amount of spots and in room to maneuver, so keep extra eye on young ones and the elderly. Well worth the drive!!
