Vista House is a museum at Crown Point in Multnomah County, Oregon, that also serves as a memorial to Oregon pioneers and as a comfort station for travelers on the Historic Columbia River Highway. The site, situated on a rocky promontory, is 733 feet (223 m) above the Columbia River on the south side of the Columbia River Gorge. The octagonal stone building was designed by Edgar M. Lazarus in the style of Art Nouveau, and completed in 1918 after nearly two years of construction.

In 2000, restoration on the building began, and lasted five years. The Vista House is located within the Corbett locality, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Vista House is a popular place for viewing the aurora borealis.

  • We stopped here on our tour of the Columbia River Gorge. Terrific views! And the building is very cool. Nice stop.

  • Worth visiting even if the house itself is closed! Recommend going an hour/hour and a half before sunset, too, the colors are beautiful and crowds are limited. If visiting during hours, a great 360 view, and very plentiful gift shop! Love this outlook. Fret not if it seems cloudy or views obstructed, those will usually clear out within 10 minutes
  • Super cute. Had an upstairs and downstairs with gift shop and scenic views. Volunteers are helpful and friendly; had a good chat with the lady and she gave me a free magnet. Not too crowded but also a small parking lot. Shuttle service stops here.
