Live, Work and Play in Cowlitz County, WA

Come live in the heart of the beautiful Pacific Northwest, surrounded by majestic mountains, a roaring ocean, rainforests, deserts, rustic rural settings, and vibrant cities. It's all here, within a 2-hour drive of the community of Longview, Washington. Portlandia fans - Portland, Oregon is just a 45-minute drive south!

Our very famous neighbor, Mt. St. Helens, can be seen from the upper floor windows of PeaceHealth St. John Medical Center! No need to worry, the mountain has gone back to sleep. Tourists flock to it to admire the spectacular views, while hikers and mountain bikers enjoy its vast network of trails. 

Lake Sacajawea Park is directly west of PeaceHealth St. John, and provides a wonderful place for caregivers to enjoy a lunchtime walk, or an after-work concert. The lake is surrounded by a nearly 4-mile walking/jogging trail.
