Just as an intrepid band of pathfinders led by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark followed their Journey of Discovery to the mouth of the Columbia River more than 200 years ago so shall a hardy group of Porsche 356 owners pursue their Northwest Quest to join others at the Porsche 356 Registry West Coast Holiday 2014 on the Columbia River near Stevenson, Washington. Nestled on the banks of the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, just east of Portland, Oregon, the site offers spectacular views of majestic forested mountains rising from the river basin and graced by cascading waterfalls descending down to the river. Numerous trails and parks offer ample opportunities to enjoy the scenic and serene environment and experience a true Northwest adventure. Plan to come early or stay through the Labor Day weekend to fully appreciate your experience.
We have chosen the Skamania Lodge in Stevenson, Washington, as the host hotel not just for its unique setting amongst the woodlands with first-class amenities and championship golf course but also for the spectacular views of the Columbia River Gorge and surrounding scenery. Other accommodations are available within 10 to 15 minutes of the Lodge and offer similar amenities and views.
The Lodge offers easy access to scenic Washington Highway 14 that parallels the Columbia River on the Washington side of the river. Views of the extensive basalt rock formations from along the river and above are numerous from easily accessible viewpoints on either side of the Columbia. Cross the nearby Bridge of the Gods to the historic Columbia River Highway on the Oregon side for access to Multnomah Falls or the Vista House viewpoint high above the Gorge. Nearby roads to views of Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Hood offer still more options to experience the impressive mountains of the Cascade range. Hood River, OR, the "Wind Surfing Capital of the World", is 23 miles from the Lodge, offering extensive shopping and restaurant options along with sights of world class wind surfers and kite boarders.
Do not delay in filing your application for registration and making your reservation for accommodations as we expect the rooms to fill up quickly.
