About Jim Farrier

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

Why Jim Farrier chose Mount Rainier

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.

What makes this lodge unique

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.

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

THANK YOU for a perfect vacation. We came for a mini reunion, as my mother is a Yakama Indian and hasn't been up to Washington for years. The cabin is prettier and larger than the pics depict (to me) It felt like HOME...Jim has gone above and beyond to make his guests feel at home in this beautiful cabin get away. The scenery, the wild life, everything was gorgeous. I cannot THANK YOU enough, we WILL be back, and I highly recommend this cabin to anyone that wants to relax and enjoy the beautiful state of Washington. THANKS again!

Amazing Tranquility with all of the Amenities

  • 5 of 5

It's always a good vacation when you don't want to leave. Hummingbird Resort is a beautiful home set in an amazing location with incredible views of where the desert meets the forest. This house is clean, spacious and comfortable with everything you need and a whole lot of things you never knew you needed....generously supplied by a very accommodating host. The kitchen is well appointed with plenty of appliances and supplies. Dining area and community living space is comfortable and attractive. Bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. The music room was a delight to my very musical adult children and we were entertained with live music daily. Surrounding property is gorgeous and can be enjoyed from the wrap around deck. The hot tub is a plus! We put 2000 miles on the rental van exploring the beauty of the Yakima Valley Desert, Wentachee National Forest, Mount Rainier and traveling to the Gorge Amphitheater to catch a few Dave Matthew's Shows...... and it was always a pleasure to come home to Hummingbird Resort. Thank you Jim Farrier for sharing your wonderful home with us. We hope to return to Hummingbird Resort and explore more of your beautiful state from our home, all the way across the country in New Jersey.

Family Get-Way for Wedding

  • 4 of 5

We stayed 3 nights/4 days with family members to celebrate my niece's wedding. The house was a perfect get-away to unwind and relax throughout our hectic weekend schedule. Everyone had their own place and space and we did not feel crowded with 14 people at our max. Peaceful and quiet with a beautiful view of the valley below. Morning coffee in the hot tub was bliss. Fully stocked kitchen and very comfortable beds and the biggest TV I have ever seen. The owner accommodated our every request to arrive early, stay later, bring our small dog, and even delivered property to us that we left behind. Very appreciated! Thanks Jim!

Great place to gather as family and friends.

  • 5 of 5

The property is in the foothills of a small farming valley. A beautiful setting. The deck wraps around the entire home. The hot tub on the deck is enjoyed by everyone. In the evening the moon rises over the mountains and is the most beautiful sight to behold.

Great place to gather as a family. Very open and spacious. The owner is very helful.

Would recommend this home to those that enjoy relaxing and getting away for a great outdoor stay in the log cabin.

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.

Notes:
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. Natural fruit trees provide organic cherries, apricots, plums and apples, when in season. This is a very rural setting when you can feel free to be yourself and make this fully your home for as long as you stay. 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. Please let the me know if you have any special needs or questions, Jim Farrier, Hummingbird Hill Resort, owner.
