In 1805 Lewis and Clark explored the lands of Washington as part of a commission by President Thomas Jefferson. Their job was to map the road west through the recently purchased Louisiana Territory. And part of that trip led them to the shores of the Columbia River at Pillar Rock. Cool right? Well, what’s even cooler is that you can stay where they once camped.
The Coho Cabin is an extremely unique Airbnb located in the old fishing town of Pillar Rock. The host’s family moved to Pillar Rock in 1979 and has helped to keep this piece of both Washington and National history alive. Today guests at the cabin can enjoy a secluded sandy beach, with private access from the cabin. Not to mention a stunning view of historical Pillar Rock just upstream.
While the one-bedroom, three-bathroom cabin is pretty dang cool, the opportunity to tour the Pillar Rock Cannery is arguably just as cool if not cooler. You’ll also be able to watch commercial ship traffic pass by as it heads to destinations around the world. And if you’re super lucky you might see some wildlife too.
The Coho Cabin at Pillar Rock is a great place to come to take in the views, relax and enjoy everything that the Columbia River has to offer. You can go swimming, fishing, hiking, beachcombing, and more. Seriously, folks, this spot has it all for you. And before we forget to mention, you’re also welcome to explore the 42-acre property that the cabin sits on.
Is this the coolest Airbnb we’ve found? Probably but we’ll let you guys make that decision. If you want to check it out for yourself, a night will cost you $189. You can see more of Pillar Rock by visiting Airbnb.
