Among many of Fort Lewis’s happy surprises is Riverside House, a short three minute drive away, on the upper tract. There you will find five individual bedrooms all with private bathrooms. Peaceful and secluded, it offers all of the amenities of the Lodge with an added bonus, a picturesque view of the river and some of the finest fishing on the grounds. Hugged with porches, it has ample areas to enjoy the scenery or to just curl up with a good book. The spacious guest rooms are elegant and feature individual bathrooms. For the purist, spring water flows fresh from the tap. The Riverside House is set just down the road from the Lodge, and can be rented by the room or you may rent the whole house when available.
