For the dinosaur lover, or anyone wanting a short term rental property with a prehistoric theme, there’s nothing better than the jurassic retreat in Washougal, WA.

“He decided to bring his mechanical dinosaurs,” James explains. “He had them custom made.”

With three bedrooms and two bathrooms, this 2,166 square foot retreat is ready for reservations as a short term rental listing.

High ceilings and an open layout are ideal for entertaining human guests.

The 2-acre property also includes an indoor hot tub as well as a jeep for touring the area.
