Connect like 'Kinfolk' and celebrate over the Columbia river at this inspiring and chic installation station.
Astoria's Alderbrook station is an ode to Oregon's rich salmon-running, industrial heritage, with three historic structures to choose from - the Net Lodge, Boathouse & Bunkhouse. Beautiful for all types of bashes, the Net Lodge is the 15,000 sq. ft event space while the Bunkhouse provides a unique work environment to create and congregate.
Located in a protected lagoon on the Columbia River, Alderbrook Station is a relic of the once thriving salmon fishing industry in Astoria. One of the last intact marine industrial structures in the region, the Net Shed offers a unique architectural experience. 3 floors and 15,000 square feet of timber post and beam historic warehouse are perched on wood pilings over the Columbia. Wood windows provide views of the river, an historic train trestle bridge, and the Washington Coast beyond. The historic waterfront property also includes docks, beach access, a Boat House that has been converted to a residence, and a small cottage.

Set on several acres on the Columbia River, this building is one of the last of it\'s kind in the region. The building and dock jut out into the Columbia River in the Alderbrook Lagoon. Separated by a train trestle, the lagoon has calm water to swim, kayak, and canoe. The waters support a rich variety of bird life - Bald Eagles teach their young to hunt and Cormorants stand on old pilings with their wings spread to dry.
This venue is an historic net shed built on pilings over the Columbia River in 1903. The net shed has 3 floors. The first floor includes a restroom and kitchenette with large sliding barn doors opening to the entry ramp and to the dock and river. The second floor is rented to artists and includes their studio spaces, a ping pong table, and a grouping of hammocks strung from the structure of the building. The third floor is a dramatic open space with high ceilings and views to the river from a high observation deck. A low roofed portion - the net loft - runs the full length of the structure and offers a cozy and dramatic setting for table seating.
Standout Venue Features:
Our waterfront site includes picnic tables, a fire pit for barbecued oysters, and a private gravel beach with amazing views of the lagoon and river.
The building includes historic wood pallets that can be grouped and stacked for use as seating, tables, stage platforms...whatever you can think of.
