|Property type||chateau / country house|
|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
Our lovely 8-acre vineyard and charming 2-bedroom guest cottage are a treasure! Newly remodeled, the 'Grand Suite' will spoil you and your honey rotten! Get ready to relax in the fanciest 'retro' bathroom in town! Enjoy the convenience of having the whole-house to yourself, including a fully stocked kitchen. But who wants to cook when you can.......barbecue outside on the gas grill! Clean up quick so you can romance your honey on the porch... or lay-out on the private deck! Cool off in the pond as you splash in the paddle boat! Walk the vineyard to witness breath-taking views of Mt. Adams, as the sunsets. Tour Yakima's Premiere Wine Country. Sunland's Cottage is ideal for couples visiting Yakima on a weekend-getaway or a vacation! Conveniently located all within 3-15 minutes from most of Yakima's hotspots! (P.S. if you are allergic to animals, this is NOT your place! Also, since the cottage is situated on a working farm, expect to see crew polishing, priming and pruning the grapes during your stay, all in service to the fall grape harvest!)
For the past thirty plus years, the Sunland estate has been under the loving care of Jenny and Mark Snyder. Raised on a 3000 acre farm in Minnesota, Jenny drove a tractor before a car! Rather then stay inside to help her mother out with chores, Jenny preferred to sneak outside to join her father and brothers. She soaked up billions of brain cells of farming knowledge from them. She also loved to disappear out on her horse! But do not confuse her with a tom-boy, in college she was crowned Miss St. Cloud.
Today, not a lot has changed. Jenny is a farmer, a fashionista, and an amazing cook! She over-sees Sunland Vineyards and Guest Cottage. Over the years, the land has been transformed from a cattle ranch, to a goat farm, to a Morgan horse farm, and now to a fertile vineyard. (Thanks in part to ash deposited by Mt. St. Helens) Around the neighborhood, Jenny is known as the egg-lady as she generously shares her free-range-organic-farm fresh eggs!
Jenny and Mark's love for youth has inspired them to host over 91 exchange students. Rather then hit 100, they are extending an invitation to you, to vacation in the sun, while staying at their fun-loving Guest Cottage. Walk the Vineyard with your sweety hand in hand! It’s a FUN-loving romantic weekend getaway that you’ll want to keep returning to!
Get ready to thoroughly enjoy yourself! Jenny is a woman who has always been ahead of her time, and is always ready to have a sweet time! (G-rated!)
The Snyder's purchased this chateau / country house in 1978
Jenny's love for farming inspired her to convince Mark to purchase it. For years she had watched, her neighbors raise hundreds of goats on it! Its steep hillside provided the goats with terrain that kept them entertained! Decades later, as the wine industry in Yakima grew in momentum, the vision for the property expanded! Today it is planted in over 8 varieties of grapes which are sold to local wine makers such as Gilbert Cellars and Naches Height. The steep hillside and rocky terrain makes the land ideal to capture the sun's attention! Very similar to the hillside vineyards in France, the grapes thrive in this growing environment.

If a picture paints a thousand words, being there paints a million! What a lovely refuge from all that might worry you. Jenny's Pond is a world unto itself, with manicured grounds, a cottage quaintly nestled in yester-year, and an owner who boasts hospitality with fresh flowers, a bottle of delightful estate wine, delicious bread and butter, and eggs from a nearby hen house. In all my VRBO experiences, I have never felt more welcomed in a home, have never been more pleased with the rental value, and have never been more impressed with the cleanliness of the property. Seriously, this experience has created memories of a lifetime for me, my wife, our daughter, and our son-in-law. Thank you Jenny!
Jenny was a great host, very accommodating and lovely.
Would stay here again with out question.
My husband and I had a wonderful stay here! It was quiet and peaceful. We were welcomed with a dozen eggs and a bottle of white wine. The master bedroom was huge, it's bed very comfortable. The view of the pond was relaxing. We were very close to many of the wineries and had a great time! The only downside was the second bedroom's bed, according to the couple who came with us, was uncomfortable. Everything was very clean and welcoming. If we come back for another wine tasting we will be sure to see if it's available.
A great house with lots of room and beautiful settings on the back sun deck and the front porch and the grounds are a beautiful place for a walk and a great hostess. Jenny made us feel like we were her personal guests. I highly recommend especially for those who want to see some great wineries and a must see is the Krueger Pepper Farm and Ginkgo Petrified Forest, and Cowiche Canyon. And we will always remember Tuxedo and we miss him.. Thank you Jenny and Julia
We fully enjoyed our stay here. Fresh eggs, a fresh loaf of bread and a bottle of wine greeted us. We enjoyed waking up and sitting on the back deck or front porch to drink coffee and catch up on our reading. Both decks look out towards the private pond.
The best part is that we were not far from regular city attractions or the freeway. We would definitely recommend this to others.
We liked this cottage as it was located in the city, yet totally country. The master suite and bathroom are brand new and gorgeous. The kitchen and other areas of the cottage are quaint. The porches are beautiful to sit in and relaxing, looking over the vineyard or the lake. We liked the quiet with no neighbors and no schedule.
If you are wanting to "get away" then this is the place for you. Wine tasting or sitting on the backdeck enjoying a cup of coffee, we found the environment perfect.
