Scarborough House

Built in 1902 as the fort hospital and later used as a youth hostel, the newly renovated Scarborough House is a perfect rental for larger families.

It is named in honor of Captain James Scarborough, the first outside settler north of the Columbia River, who built a frontier cabin in 1843 on what is now Fort Columbia land.

Overlooking Fort Columbia’s historic grounds from its hillside location, the one-story house includes four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a full kitchen, living room, and an additional sleeping area with three double futons.

Cable TV and a CD player are also provided for guests. Towels and bed linens are supplied, with the exception of linens for futons.
