Centrally located in the amazing Washington Cascades Mountain to Sound Greenway just 90 minutes east of downtown Seattle, yet a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of city life. This spacious 2200 square foot property is your perfect home base for year round outdoor family fun. See below for a quick synopsis of major recreational activities available. Feel free to request our mind blowing, detailed list of fun stuff to do and see, along with links, all within an hour of our home. We’re nestled in the wooded community of Elk Meadows, across the road from the mighty Yakima river, about 10 minutes from the towns of Roslyn and Cle Elum. Our home's proximity to I-90 (5 minutes away) makes it close to all that the Central Cascades has to offer. The Mountain House is very kid friendly. Be sure to bring the bikes and quads! Golfers love the Mountain House. Suncadia is 12 minutes away, Sun Country Golf is 5 minutes down the road.
The house features a fully appointed kitchen boasting a microwave, toaster, coffee maker, and dishwasher. The adjoining dining room seats six, with seating for 4 more at the kitchen island. Dining room also features a small gas fired pot belly fireplace.
Need to get some work done while you're here? Settle into the big roll-top desk and bring your laptop because there's free wireless internet throughout the house! Our close proximity to the I-90 corridor not only assures quick access to points east and west, but also great cell phone reception with most major providers.
The downstairs is rounded out by one full bathroom, 2 bedrooms (one with queen bed, the other a “kid’s bunkhouse” (featuring 3 single beds and a big TV with DVD player, with lots of toys in the toy box. Living room includes a flat screen TV, DVD player, and a Wii gaming system. There's a cd player/iPod dock downstairs and awesome vintage stereo in the rec room so bring your favorite cd's or plug in your ipod. We also have a queen size airbed that accommodates 2 more sleepers.
Actual bed space for 11, but the house is big and there's room for 3 more kids on the floor...bring sleeping bags. We have a Pack'n'Play for your little one.
On the second floor you’ll find 2 more bedrooms, one with a queen bed, and the other the master bedroom that boasts a super comfy king bed with memory foam topper, walk-in closet, and romantic balcony that overlooks the front yard.
Enjoy ping pong, mini billiards, and air hockey in the huge rec room that takes up the entire 3rd floor.
Kids and adults will love the outdoor fire pit, perfect for making s’mores and campfire memories year round (subject to occasional US Fire Service 'burn bans' in the summer months). There’s easy access across the road to the gorgeous Yakima River. We love to float it in the summer months (it’s a gentle float for the whole family) and fly fish it in all but the winter months. Take a leisurely snowmobile cruise (15 mph limit) around the neighborhood during the snowy months (Mother Nature willing), or load up your snowmobile(s) and trailer them to any number of nearby trails. You're smack dab in the middle of Snowmobile Heaven...Washington's Central Cascades!
Pets OK with prior approval...
What we love most about our home in the Washington Cascades are the recreational opportunities. Here’s a brief rundown, all an hour or less away:
SPRING, SUMMER, and FALL –
-Fly fishing the Yakima River, including Blue Ribbon trout fishing in the world renowned Yakima River Canyon. Hire a guide or go it alone, it’s totally amazing and indescribably beautiful. The canyon is also a great place to float down the river in a raft or innertube.
-World Class Golf at Suncadia Resort (Arnold Palmer designed course), there’s also the more modest Sun Country course just 5 minutes away.
-Boating, sailing, kayaking, and jet skiing on Lake Cle Elum.
-Lake and stream fishing.
-Skiing, snowboarding, and tubing at Snoqualmie Summit
-Cross country skiing
-Horse drawn sleigh rides through the backcountry
-The famous Bavarian town of Leavenworth. Absolutely beautiful during the holidays.
YEAR ‘ROUND AND NOT SO OUTDOORSY
-Kicking around the historic mining town of Roslyn. Fans of the TV show “Northern Exposure” will recognize it as the fictitious town of Cicely, Alaska. Be sure and check out Village Pizza. Yum!
-Shopping and dining in the town of Cle Elum. There’s a big Safeway here for all of your grocery shopping needs. They also rent DVDs.
-Fine dining and Spa services at the exquisite Suncadia Resort.
-Shopping galore at the North Bend outlet mall just 45 minutes west. Fans of the TV show 'Twin Peaks' will recognize North Bend as the setting for much of the series.
-Seattle is only 90 minutes away...catch a Seahawks, Sounders, or Mariners game, visit the Pike Place Market, or just spend the day sightseeing in one of America's most beautiful cities!

Bill and I are finally retired and stay busy (and fit!) chasing our 3 grandkids around.
We raised our family in the Pacific Northwest and always dreamed of having a vacation home in the Cascade Mountains. In 1995 our dream came true. We love this place and hope you will too.
We love spending summer days here relaxing in the yard and smelling the sweet mountain air. Our boys and their kids are always off hiking, tubing, or fishing. Winters find us snowmobiling in the back country. OK..them more than us. The holidays here are magical!
