Waterfall Sanctuary is a hidden gem at the end of a dead-end road on 17 acres of land, bordered on two sides by the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. Located in the heart of the Columbia River Gorge just outside of Carson, Washington, Waterfall Sanctuary is home to a mini-farm with goats, ducks, and chickens. Deer and elk walk through the property on a fairly regular basis depending on the season, it's less than a mile walk (or a short drive) to the Wind River and a perfect swimming hole with a rope swing, and another short distance further down the road is the Pacific Crest Trail.
A 20-minute drive and you're at the Columbia River, the world destination for kiteboarding and windsurfing. Water equipment can be rented from nearby businesses or you can book a whitewater rafting trip on the White Salmon River. An hour from the property to the West is Portland, Oregon if you are in the mood for some city life, and about 40 minutes to the east is Hood River, Oregon, a gorgeous old town with tons of charm, shopping, breweries, and great restaurants. Drive the Fruit Loop or do a winery tour. The closest town, Stevenson, Washington is also home to adorable shops, great local restaurants, and access to the Columbia River as well.
Also in close proximity are two amazing waterfalls, Panther Creek Falls and Falls Creek Falls. National Forest roads are close by and well maintained. No matter the season there is something to do a short distance from the property.
We have 4 tents available to rent out, and a porta-potty.
Please note: It can get chilly at night. Although we provide an extra blanket, if you are more sensitive to the cold please bring extras or a sleeping bag with you. The tents are not heated.
About each site, to help you choose the one that fits your needs the best:
Site #1- This site is home to the awesome 20-foot diameter Stargazer tent, where you can see the night sky from your bed. :) It is also the closest to the communal area with seating that includes a hammock, and the propane fire table, a picnic table, as well as the communal cooking area. This tent can fit up to 6 snuggly. If you are wanting more privacy you can choose sites #3 or #4.
Site #2- This site is the smallest tent at 16 feet in diameter and fits 4 people maximum. This tent the closest one to site #1 so it's a great one to book along with #1 if you need more than one tent for you and your group. This tent has a picnic table next to it.
Site #3- This 20-foot diameter tent is located in a small clearing with a picnic table next to it and fits up to 6 people.
Site #4- This is the most private tent and it's tucked next to a large tree. It's 20 feet in diameter and can fit up to 6 people as well. It does not have a dedicated picnic table (this is also the closest tent to #3, so if you want to book more than one tent this is also a good pairing).

Places to see near Tyla S.’s Land
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Wow! Tyla and Nate have a beautiful location with thoughtful attention to experience. The star gazer tent was AH-mazing. There is so much to do in the surrounding area, and if you stay during the week you'll feel like you have your own private experience in nature. My stay was short but so nourishing, I definitely recommend adding fresh eggs to your order! Delicious!
Relaxing weekend in the lotus belle
We had the most amazing experience at Waterfall Sanctuary Retreat! The lotus belle tent was amazing and beautifully appointed. The beds and pillows were surprisingly comfy, and the extra blankets did come in handy when it cooled off at night. The extra touches were so wonderful and well thought out. Tyla is so sweet and personable and made us feel very welcome to explore the property. My family did the fused glass experience and really liked it, they made some glass pendants that they got to take home. As home-like as this felt, I could see it being easy to forget that you are still camping in a national forest and you really need to make sure you put all your food up in your car because there are wild animals nearby. Also if your stove doesn't work, there is a pizza place about 10 minutes away! Problem solved. Glamping at it's finest for sure! Don't miss the swimming hole nearby- the water temp was actually perfect and I was kicking myself for not actually bringing a swimsuit, there was even a rope swing! We will be back again soon!
Wonderful property with great yurts with comfortable beds! Great location to swimming, hiking, and incredible water falls. Highly recommend getting some fresh chicken eggs to enjoy for breakfast. Overall really enjoyed all the amenities and looking forward to staying again in the future!
We had such a beautiful time! So happy we got to be one of the first people to stay here as I can see this place becoming a hot spot! It’s in the perfect location, beautiful property and the host were so friendly!! It was so nice to be able to end our trip here with hot shower, cozy bed, and on a beautiful property!
Sanctuary sums it up!
The sight was so cozy and close to so many amazing water holes and nature scenes. The host was very kind and helpful answering all the questions I had. When we got there we got a pan flit with local activity’s around.
I had a wonderful stay. The property is amazing and Tyla an her family are such great hosts. This will be a hot spot no doubt and i can not wait to see what else they will do. Also there is so much to do around there: hiking, swimming ( wow the swimming hole is amazing) , stargazing etc... Carson, Stevenson, White Salmon and Hood River are soo close.
I will be back soon and can not wait !
