I'm Jim Farrier and I purchased this wonderful log home as a weekend home and vacation escape. I love the mountain air with the gentle summer here and the deep fluffy snow in the winter. I work about 210 miles away in Vancouver, so I drive a lot, but I've made the drive here almost every weekend in the past six years. My interests are nature, meditation, gardening, music, science, business, energy, spirituality, hiking, exploring, creative thinking, alternative health, developing peace and well being. I believe that life is complex with unseen forces and that we are all connected with our roots into the land. I like unusual unique things that have real value even though only a few special people can see the true worth.

I grew up in Tigard, Oregon and lived in Portland much of my life. I became tired of the city and I was fascinated and drawn to the Columbia gorge and would travel and hike incessantly in the beautiful areas. I currently live in The Dalles during the 9-5 work week with and I commute to Vancouver. I work for a division of a large multinational electronics corporation. My work is multi-faceted, dealing with both Information Technology and Market Research. I like to use both the analytical and intuitive side of my brain for both work and play. My education over the years has been in electronics, computers, communications and business and hold an MBA from Marylhurst University. I never stop learning and I keep pushing the envelope to understand life and each new experience.

Jim Farrier purchased this lodge in 2007

This mountain lodge is a peaceful place. It is a place to relax with room to spread out and expand in all directions. It can be place to think and solve problems, but mostly to unwind and let your cares fade away. This place grew on me from the moment I saw it. It seemed spectacular and unusual in all respects. While I never expected I would use it much, I've spent hundreds of hours in the hot tub, relaxing, meditating, watching the birds fly above and the trees sway in the breeze against the backdrop of the steep rocky cliffs that make up the gorge walls. This place is magical for me and it feels alive with a gentle energy that holds and supports each thought and emotion. Being here brings peace of mind. Also, this has been a good place to visit with family and talk, relax and just have fun.

While it is relaxing in its own right, this place is a good jump off point to explore the entire area from Mount Rainier National Park to all the points of interest in the Yakima valley and even further. The log construction makes this place have a different quality of sound, warmth and comfort. It is a very different feel from a framed house and a truly unique experience. If you've ever wondered what it was like to live in a log house, you would hardly believe the difference and the nuances of the experience. It really grows on you.

The home theater allows you to spread out, relax and enjoy high definition movies including a wide selection of 3D movies such as Avatar and Titanic as well as children's movies and relaxing nature scenes.

Awesome Stay at Hummingbird Hill

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a family weekend at Hummingbird Hill and it was wonderfull. The location was beautiful. The acommodations were superb with comfortable rooms with lots of open space.

The lodge is nestled in the hills with an incredible mountain views. The lodge is quiet, private and has been equipped with lots of entertainment choices. The TV was wonderful with lots of movies to choose from.

Critters were of great interest to the grandkids. Quail, hummingbirds, squirrels and chipmunks to name a few.

Jim the owner was wonderful answering our questions and concerns.

We would highly recommend this lodge and hope to return again in the future.

Family gathering

It was a wonderful experience. Jim the owner was very friendly and was quick to answer any question you may of had. The hummingbirds were amazing to watch and play with Yes I mean play with. What curious little birds. If you stand real still next to their feeder they will come up right next to you. Getting up in the morning sitting outside having a cup of coffee enjoying the fresh air. Spending time with my grandchildren and watching them have fun. it was a blessing. The house was well maintain and well equipped and he made sure you are Comfortable. We will be coming back. Thanks Jim for a wonderful time

Incredible place to vacation

  • 5 of 5
We just got back from an incredible vacation at Hummingbird Hill Resort. Three families (11 of us) spent four wonderful nights and five fun filled days there. The house is amazing, with a beautiful wrap around deck which we enjoyed a lot. Wine on the deck with a super moon and a telescope with which to check out the details of the craters of the moon. Stunning. We've never seen so many hummingbirds in one place. In fact most of us hadn't ever seen a hummingbird at rest, but we saw them at rest, and in motion (50 flaps per second). I had never watched a movie on a 3D TV before, and the IMAX undersea movie on the 70" TV was a sight to behold. What a treat. I've got to get one of those. We also enjoyed a lot of hikes in the area (Naches Peak, Dewyer Lake, Tipsoo Lake), and golf (Sun Tides). One evening, I went for a run up Clover Springs road at dusk, and saw several Deer, and a large group (50 or so) of elk. What a treat!! We also saw Stellars Jays, Blue Jays, and California Quail. I think we all agreed that we need to make this a regular vacation stop. Thanks Jim for your awesome hospitality!!!

Spacious, beautiful log home

  • 4 of 5
My family and I stayed at Hummingbird Hill while we were in town for a wedding. It was great! We loved waking up and drinking our coffee outside on the wrap around porch to watch the hummingbirds, elk and just enjoy the peaceful outdoors. The home itself was perfect for all of us. All the little details were noticed and much appreciated. The music room was a big hit as well as the hot tub. Thank you again and we will most definitely be back.

Amazing place to stay with family!!!!

  • 5 of 5
The owner was very on too if weather and road conditions and was very helpful in any way that we needed. This property was absolutely beautiful! The scenery was like out of a painting and the house was very comfortable and well stocked with everything you could ever need. The only thing we found missing was a griddle for larger groups, other than that the owner provided everything we needed! I would highly recommend this vacation home to anyone looking for a a great place to go spend family time together and also have some outdoor adventures or just play games and bond indoors!!!

Custom built log home is located along the Chinook Pass Scenic Byway recognized as the premier driving tour in Washington State. The lodge is located midway between Yakima Wine Country and Mount Rainier National Park. Hummingbirds, Eagles, Blue jays, Swifts, Quail and many other bird are part of the land and nest in the trees. The Hummingbirds will feed and flock for hours by the hot tub and front window. Eagles will pick up the wind currents and soar to great height in the updrafts. Deer and Elk trails guide the animals close to the deck. White Pass ski area is a 46 mile drive though beautiful mountain country. Mount Rainier National park begins about 37 miles up the road with spectacular views along the way. Bumping lake and Eagle Caves are within 20 miles. There are over a hundred wineries within an hour or so drive toward the Tri-Cities with the closest tasting room about 16 miles and full wineries about 30 miles away, near Selah. The extensive Yakima Casino and Tribal center is about an hour away near dozens of wineries with the shopping mall along the way.

There are abundant hiking trails along the rivers and lakes of the area, with high mountain views from the forest service roads that criss-cross the entire area. Many of the high mountain gravel roads can be driven with an ordinary car or pushed to the limit with a 4 wheel drive vehicle. The house is about a mile and a half from the Gifford Pinchot national forest. In the winter herds of elk are roaming just up the road in the forest service feeding station. This place is truly in the middle of high mountain nature, with attractions for everyone within an relaxing and outstandingly beautiful scenic drive every direction. Traffic is usually quite sparse with no delays.

For dining out, there are four great local restaurants with bars within 10 miles.

Hummingbird Hill Lodge is a natural rustic setting. It is a fully equipped, spacious log home with everything most people would need to enjoy their stay comfortably. The freezer is stocked with a few basic items such as hamburger patties and vegetarian item to barbecue, if you desire.

There is no restrictions on activities as long as you and your guests respect the lodge, the property and the environment around you while you are here. It can be the perfect place for enjoying creativity, such as photography, writing or making music.
