Chiwa Lodge!!

Go back in time and relax riverside at “Chiwa Lodge,” nestled on five acres with 150 feet of pristine Yakima River frontage. Chiwa (pronounced chee way) is a Yakama word for the trout that inhabit the river, sharing the environment with salmon, deer, elk, beaver, river otter, and a extensive variety of birds. The lodge’s unique architectural design salutes local history with storefront facades echoing the frontier coal mining town of Roslyn, just miles away.

Featured in Pacific magazine and Mountain Living magazine, the home,showcases family and local memorabilia and pieces of furniture-art designed and built by the owner. The main lodge and a guest cottage, linked by a “boardwalk” deck running the length of the two structures, make Chiwa a great getaway for 2 or more families.

Tastefully decorated in a hunting and fishing theme, the main lodge boasts 3 Bedrooms and 2 ½ baths in 2,000 square feet. In the 24x32 foot great room, your evenings will center around the two story river rock fireplace and leisurely dinners and rousing board games at the long teak dining table which seats 14. (Or gather around the outdoor fire pit for fish tales and a barbecue!)

The guest cottage is a studio with a private bathroom and provides an additional 500 sq ft of living space. In the main house the 3 bedrooms are equipped with 1 King, 1 Queen, and 3 Twins including a set of bunk beds. The guest cottage offers 1 Queen plus two couches.

A separate TV room in the main house sports a 47 inch flatscreen TV with DVD player. Other amenities include an IPod Player, and a gas BBQ. The master bathtub includes jacuzzi jets for a relaxing massage after a day outdoors. The kitchen is fully equipped for the most ambitious meal preparation.

From the front door of the lodge, a 100 foot stroll through majestic evergreens will take you to the scenic banks of the river for water sports and foot fishing. For drift boaters, the lodge is conveniently located between the Nelson Siding (Bullfrog Road) put-in and the take-out in South Cle Elum.

Chiwa Lodge is a 75 minute drive from downtown Seattle, 30 minutes from the Summit Ski Area on Snoqualmie Pass, and even closer to golf at Sun Country Golf Course or Suncadia Resort. In 30 minutes east bound, you are in Ellensburg for Jazz in the Valley, the Ellensburg Rodeo, and other attractions. For history buffs, a visit to Roslyn (setting for the Northern Exposure TV series) must include the unique cemetery and the Coal Miner’s Museum. Other local attractions include the Burlington Northern Railroad museum in South Cle Elum, and the Telephone Museum and the historical Carpenter House in Cle Elum.

Fishing, swimming, bird-watching, reading, gaming, golfing, touring, hiking, and skiing can all be enjoyed at or near this riverside paradise. In any season, you’ll enjoy the privacy and serenity of the park-like setting and the recreational opportunities it offers. Come and embrace the natural beauty of the Yakima River at Chiwa Lodge!!

Reviewer Comments:
Our weekend at the Chiwa Lodge was perfect! The house was by far one of the cleanest rentals I have stayed in. Kitchen was perfect for our large group and the house layout was awesome. Plenty of group space, but still allowed for some quiet areas. Short walk to the river where the dogs had a wonderful time running around. Thank you so much for letting us bring our dogs!! What a great location. We will be back for sure!

Reviewer Comments:
Our stay over the President's Day weekend was interesting in that it snowed almost a foot every day which makes the location of the property a little hard to get in and out of. Also the power went out for 12 hours on Sat afternoon and that just added to the charm. The property management staff was awesome. They brought us firewood and LED lanterns during the power outage and kept us updated on road conditions. We could not have asked for more help from the staff. I would highly recommend Chiwa Lodge, it is charming and comfortably furnished. We had 6 adults and two kids and it was perfect size for our family. Oh and 3 dogs too! Thank you Marcia and Chris for being so wonderful during the power outage and keeping us updated on road conditions.

I would like to say we had a wonderful time . We stayed December 20-23. Even if we didnt have snow we found a lot to do. We took walks in the woods ,to the river and we found a message in a bottle. We played games and had great Family time. I recommend anyone wanting a fun filled place to stay to stay here. We hope to go back in the summer and play in the river and again in the winter and hope for snow.

Hi Karen,

4 1/2 STARS - CLOSE TO PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Chiwa with extended family over a recent weekend. The lodge is very comfortable and a convenient drive from the Puget Sound area. The kids enjoyed playing in the river... we couldn't let them swim as the water is very swift through there, but there was plenty of shallow water for them to splash around in. They skipped rocks and spent hours catching grasshoppers along the shoreline. My brothers caught (and released) some beautiful rainbow trout right off the banks. Beds were fairly comfortable, though it was a little too warm at night. The lack of A/C was really the only reason I would not give it 5 stars. Lucky for us the days were hot and storms rolled in at night to cool it down some. We had two crazy storms - non-stop sheet lightening and rain the first night and marble-sized hail, rain, and lightening directly overhead the second. LOVED the giant porch... plenty of chairs for everyone. We brought our own camp chairs with us to carry down to the river - highly recommend. We plopped them right into the water and it was very relaxing. Overall a great experience... thanks for the opportunity to rent! And yes, the upstairs shower had a slow drain, but we just used the downstairs on the rest of the time and it was fine.

Map

Great location to relax riverside or try your hand at Trout Fishing! Just a short 10min drive into Cle Elum. Golf at Sun Country is just 3 miles down the road and Suncadia Resort is a 10min drive! You'll feel like you're way out in the country, but all the amenities of Cle Elum and Roslyn are just a short drive from the cabin.
