Welcome to Twin Gables!
Let us be your vacation home in rural Skamokawa, in Southwest Washington.
With just two bed and breakfast rooms, you’ll enjoy a peaceful break from the everyday, with attentive service from friendly but not obtrusive innkeepers. Tie your boat at our dock, or drive up and park right by our front gate, in convenient off-street parking.
Twin Gables is centrally located in the Skamokawa National Historic District, and is just a short walk from all local attractions. Amenities include:
- Hot beverages available 24 hours, you’ll find a welcoming snack in your room on arrival.
- Free WiFi throughout the property.
- Breakfast at the time you request.
- Optional lunches and dinners available at an extra charge.
For families with children and/or pets, and those who prefer to do their own cooking, we also offer a separate vacation rental apartment next door to the B & B.
- Off-street parking is available just outside our front gate.
- Locked storage is available for bicycles.
Twin Gables is located a short walk from a general store and post office. Also in walking distance: the riverfront Skamokawa Vista Park, the county fairgrounds, and a wildlife refuge.
Just across the creek is historic Redmen Hall: home of the River Life Interpretive Center. There you will find local crafts and regional interest books for sale. The Oasis Tavern an Mexican Grill, with local beers on tap and the Duck Inn, with full bar and American diner-style food are also within walking distance.
World-class kayak instruction and tours are also available nearby. Skamokawa is an ideal place to canoe or kayak in gentle backwaters and sloughs out of the main channel of the Columbia River.
Twin Gables is located just 3 hours south of Seattle, a little over 2 hours west of Portland, and about halfway between Longview, Washington and Astoria, Oregon.
“Twin Gables B&B, a bed and breakfast built before the highway reached Skamokawa in 1930, fulfilled my riparian fantasy. It is possible to tie up to the dock by Twin Gables, or to drive there and rent a kayak from the nearby rental place and be a river person for the weekend. The innkeepers are fine cooks and offer great, locally-sourced meals to guests and boaters who call in advance.”
