About
It's an odd structure, a stone octagon in "German art nouveau" style.

Beautiful architecture and scenery!
Jul 2021 • Couples
This historical location was where we chose to start our Columbia River Gorge drive. The views all around go for Miles and miles. We arrived around 10:05 AM and the building was open and staffed with rangers eager to answer questions. (I believe it opened at 10AM the day we visited). Check hours as the site said closed for covid but it was open (maybe the first day open again when we visited?) also closes for high winds. The interior was very cool - the shape of the building, the dome and the windows… beautiful and fun to walk through and downstairs to the museum or up to the second floor for overlook views. Lots of history and information on the area and time when it was built.

Neat history and great views!

Use Sasquatch Shuttle’s parking lot and hop-on/hop-off service so you can relax and don’t have to fight for parking. This is one of their stops! I wouldn’t have known it existed if not for the shuttle. And I’m so glad we took advantage of the stop.
The views on a sunny day are spectacular and the historical building is pretty amazing!

Columbia River lookout

It was a nice experience to see the Columbia River from the top. After coming from Bridal Veil waterfall go straight to Vista. So accessible . It’s kinda overcast so didn’t really get a nice photo. Overall nice stop.

Spectacular views of the Columbia River Gorge
May 2021
We were visiting the Columbia River Gorge, camping in Troutdale. We came here first by car while on a long drive thru the gorge. The house was closed due to Covid but it sure looked interesting! The views from this vantage point are fantastic! So good in fact, I went for a bicycle ride from Troutdale again and rode to Vista House just to see it again. Lots of cyclists do that ride along the historic highway.

House closed but views from the parking lot worth the stop
Aug 2020
During our visit the inside of Vista House was closed due to covid, but we still considered a stop worthwhile. The parking lot was open and from the parking lot visitors have the most beautiful view of the Columbia river valley. Perfect place for pictures. The 'vista' that gave the structure its name is remarkable. Don't miss it.

Gorgeous view!

The Vista House is closed because of covid 19 but you can park, walk around and enjoy the view. It was incredibly windy and cold while we were there so we didn't stay long. But the view was incredible!

Would Have Really Liked to See the Views of Columbia River Gorge
Sep 2020
Normally when you go to Vista House, you can get really good views of the Columbia River Gorge. However, the day we went, Saturday 9/12, the area was covered in haze and smoke due to the wildfires.

There is also no entry into the building because of COVID. It was really quiet when we went, just a few other people.

Amazing views, a must see.
Feb 2020 • Friends
Even during off season this place was very crowded. The roads up are windy and narrow- be very cautious of bikes traveling and sharing the road. The view is truly unbelievable and no picture can do it justice. The building itself is small and the gift shop is actually so small and difficult to maneuver if crowded. There are bathrooms and so much history to read on each of the 3 levels. The stair cases up and down are narrow and you may have to wait if it is crowded. The architecture and beauty of the Vista House is breath taking. There is plenty of parking but it is always busy and during peak season I could see this to be difficult. However, I highly recommend you go, you will not have any regrets.

What a neat place!
Jul 2019
We came here since we knew it was a historical place and it was a wonderful place to visit in the Columbia River Gorge. The views from the building were spectacular and that was true even since we visited during a time of wildfires and limited visibility. The shops and food available was also quite good and it was just such a nice little stop on our road trip. We would come here again any time we was in Hood River just for the views alone!

Fantastic Views!
Dec 2019
Really nice area for some great views of the Columbia River. We went early one morning as the fog was lifting and got some great pics! Worth the time it takes to get up there. The workers in the House itself were friendly and helpful and gave lots of good advice. They even recommended to go the Corbett Market and get some smoked salmon, which was as good as they made it out to be!
