Welcome to Skamokawa Landing


The Inn at Skamokawa Landing is closed. The Andersen family decided to retire from the inn keeping business. We have enjoyed sharing the results of our late father's labor of love in restoring the building with our guests.

Skamokawa Langing is a historic building dating from 1911 built on pilings on the Columbia River. Once an active steamboat landing, it has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places by the U. S. Department of the Interior, and is one of the few remaining steamboat landings on the Columbia River. We're located in Skamokawa (pronounced Ska-mock-away), Washington, which is approximately 3 hours from Seattle and 1.5 hours from Portland.
