This riverfront property is unique in that it is within walking distance to downtown yet sits in a seemingly remote wilderness setting. Flanked by trees to the North and South, the main view is the river to the West with the golf course on the far side.

I may or may not see you during your stay. I'm often around working on the three rentals I have on Dayton Ave.
What don't I love? I lived in this house for 12 years. It's at the very end of a quiet, residential street. It's not unlikely to see deer on the property or a wandering rafter of wild turkeys. We've also viewed beavers and otters in the river.
The house is within walking distance to all of downtown including historic sites such as the Smith Hollow School, the Dayton Historic Depot (State's oldest existing train depot) and the Columbia County Courthouse (State's oldest working courthouse). Dayton also has three historic districts (2 residential and 1 commercial. Stop into the Dayton Chamber of Commerce to get a walking map.
If it's a nature walk you want, walk up Front Street to Flour Mill Park on Main Street to gain access to the Dike Trail which follows the Touchet River for two miles.
You can walk to incredible restaurants such as the Weinhard Cafe, the Manila Bay Cafe on Main Street or the Patit Creek Restaurant also on Dayton Ave (definitely make reservations for the last two). I also recommend having a beer at Chief Springs Brew Pub and ordering the world's best pizza from their restaurant next door.
There is a private driveway for parking up to two vehicles and plenty of street parking available. If you want public transit during the day, the Columbia County Transit is very convenient.
