About Steve or Rachel Harrington

We are home business owners for 30 years, transplanted from California in 1999. We are gardeners and DIY buffs. We have lots of grandkids in the neighborhood.

Steve or Rachel Harrington purchased this house in 2001

Why Steve or Rachel Harrington chose Northport

We carefully and lovingly built up this log home over the last 18 years. It has been a labor of love with lots of special design features to make it unique and very homey and comfortable. My wife likes to design and I like to build. All of the logs, beams, and lumber for the floors and cabinets are sourced from local forests and mills. Rocks used in the fireplace, and interior and exterior walls are from the property and Columbia river.

What makes this house unique

The property is in a rural community of about 30 homes with friendly neighbors that will greet you on your walks. Properties are large, it is very rural.

This house was more than a home away from home (No chores to do!) Perfectly appointed and comfortable. The pantry was stocked with basics, as was the refrigerator so that whipping up a meal was a simple trip to the store. The beds were so comfortable... extra points for incredible pillows! We were greeted with a roaring fire in a REAL fireplace. They also provided everything to make our own fire the next day. Our only disappointment was that we hadn't booked another night to stay!! Truly perfect! Also, the drawers in the kitchen were marked for easy navigation to everything.

Great home to make amazing memories with your family. Title says it all "The Perfect Family Escape"

  • 5 of 5

Pictures do not describe how beautiful this home really is. You can tell Steve and Rachel have put their hearts into making this an amazing rental property. My family and I like to "get away" for the weekend quite a bit. We have rented probably 50+ homes over the years. By far, hands down, Steve and Rachel have been the most gracious hosts we have ever encountered. The home is filled with every amenity you can think of. Don't worry if you forget something, they have thought of it all. The home is extremely clean and very well taken care of. Nothing was old or worn out. Everyone in my family was extremely comfortable. I cannot express how much we appreciated staying in such a warm, welcoming, and relaxing home, taken care of by such kind hosts. We will definitely rent this home again in the future.

Thank you so much Steve and Rachel for allowing us to share your gorgeous home.

Perfect for a family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation home truly lives up to its title as “the perfect family escape”! My family and I (myself, husband, our 2 year old and my dad) stayed here for 4 nights for Christmas and we could not have picked a more perfect place for our Christmas getaway. It had beautiful holiday decor throughout the whole house including a beautifully decorated Christmas tree which we loved putting our presents under! There was even fresh floral arrangements which added to the special ambience. Everything about the house inside and out is absolutely breathtaking. From the beautiful location which is nestled with mountains all around you, to the immaculate and unique details of the home. This house is very spacious, comfy, and cozy and we felt right at home from the minute we walked through the door. In fact we enjoyed the home itself so much, we hardly ever left the house during our 4 day stay and only turned on a tv once. Everything was in perfect order, very clean and the beds were very comfy! The house was fully stocked with more than I could have ever asked for from the bathrooms, to the kitchen and all the wonderful activities for my 2 year old son. My son was in heaven with all the toys, books, coloring stuff, play doh and TONS more for him to use. All the cupboards/drawers with things for kids are marked with a sticker so he knew exactly where there was something special for him! He was SO sad to leave, he still talks about the “fancy house” as he calls it and asks when we can go back ! That’s how welcoming it is for young kids, which is very rare to find in a vacation home. The owners were incredibly attentive and were easy to communicate with from day one of booking the home. You can tell that they put a lot of time and consideration into every detail of the home to make sure that it is the perfect getaway for all family members including kids and even furry family members. Their level of hospitality is something you don’t find often. I definitely highly recommend this vacation rental, you won’t regret it!

This truly is the perfect family escape!

  • 5 of 5

We spent New Years weekend with our kids, our friends and their daughter at this home. We all had a wonderful time. With views of snow covered mountains and the deer in the yard it was a beautiful setting. Everything has been thought of and well placed in this home. The few things we forgot we were happy to find, from toiletries to food and kitchen items. The kids were very excited to find all the cabinets and drawers with the cat stickers, meaning it was for them. Steve and Rachel were thoughtful providing many arts and crafts items along with toys and children’s table and chairs. Going in the hot tub was a treat every evening. The beds are all comfortable with new clean white sheets, along with clean bathrooms and plenty of plush white towels. We were all impressed by this home, it was a very comfortable and relaxing getaway. I hope to go back soon, and make it a tradition with our friends. Thank you Rachel and Steve for the perfect weekend!

Perfect peaceful family time!

  • 5 of 5

This house is so cozy and perfectly comfortable! We’ve always wanted to get away to the snow and enjoy the Christmas time rather than get crazed and stressed. Steve and Rachel have the most delightful home! The pictures don’t do this justice.... It just FEELS like home! A nice winter setting, very comfortable beds, clean and organized supplies. They have all the supplies you could ask for , with an extra dose of hospitality thrown in! If you’re looking for an “escape”, you will find it here with the Harringtons!

Owner's Response: Lori...Thank you for your review. It was a pleasure having you and your family here. I can't tell you how rewarding it is for us to be able to bless you! And I am glad your "kids" enjoyed skiing Red Mountain! I hope you can come back in the summer months to enjoy that season as well. We will keep you posted!
