Naches lodge description

Hummingbird Hill Resort is a peaceful place to relax and unwind in nature's sanctuary.

For couples, this lodge is the perfect romantic place to share with each other within the beautiful mountain surroundings. Here, you can really get away and enjoy special time together without the pressures of everyday life. The surroundings bring a peaceful gentle feeling.

Larger groups will find the lodge's open spaces to be roomy and freeing. There are plenty of places inside and out, to talk, eat, share and hang out. The two levels and many additional beds allow a large group to stay here comfortably, for a reunion, family gathering, or a great group of friends that wants to enjoy their time together in the privacy of a wonderful mountain lodge.

This rustic hillside lodge has a roomy living area open to views of the hills and the Naches River gorge. The log construction gives a unique ambiance that is unlike any other dwelling. A glass roof classic hot tub looks upon the gorge walls with hummingbirds above.

There is a 360 degree deck which is glass covered on two sides, to shelter from wind, rain or snow. A variety of deck chairs are available for relaxing on the deck including a rocker and zero gravity recliners.

The expansive master bedroom with king bed has a private bath with a shower. All together, there is a large open living area, dining area, family room, a full kitchen, with three bedrooms and three full bathrooms on two floors. Two gas fireplace stoves punctuate both the living room and family rooms with a backdrop of local stonework.

An additional bedroom with queen bed with oak dressers are on the main floor. A full bed and bath are in a semi-private lower floor. The family room is suitable for younger family members or another couple who may want their own space.The den includes a Windows touch screen laptop and two portable Chromebook laptops for Internet browsing or playing Angry Birds anywhere in the lodge or outside. There are three Android tablets for your use, also. WiFi is available for your own computer, phone or tablet using high speed DSL Internet service. The living room includes a home theater with 70 inch 3D full high definition TV. Satellite Dish Network HD service is provided with a video library containing over 35 3D movies (including Gravity 3D), about 220 Blu-Ray and HD movies plus about 30 DVD movies with the mixture including about 40 concerts disks in addition to movies. A Roku 3 on-line player is attached to the TV, with accounts for Netflix, Amazon Plus, Hulu Plus and YouTube videos on the large screen.

This 3,700 square foot lodge has about 2,800 square foot of fully carpeted living area on two floors. There is a 1,700 square foot deck completed circling the home opening to the hillsides and views on all directions. Three garages are available (with remotes) including one that will hold a large pickup or van. There is plenty of parking for an RV or trailer. There is additional parking on a flat part of the property, accessed via a 300 feet trail, if the roads are slippery or you have a trailer you don't want to take up the fairly steep driveway.

For music buffs there are a few instruments supplied including an Electric Guitar, Bass Guitar and a classic Roland RS-5 and Yamaha DJX Synthesizer making it possible to play a few tunes, if you are so inclined. If requested, a Gibson guitar, more classic synthesizers and a 16 track Boss recording studio can be made available. The log construction gives a unique and solid sound.

Experience living with green solar power in the beauty of the unique mountain setting. Solar power for the lodge is supplied by 39 rooftop solar panels creating electricity for your stay. The summer sun will provide the power for lighting, hot tubing, cooking, air conditioning, TV watching, with hot water for showers, baths and other energy needs during your stay. With normal energy use the lodge has a zero carbon footprint in the spring, summer and fall. The solar panels can produce more than enough electricity for your needs while you enjoy your stay.

This is a peaceful place to just hang out for a while. There is no need to go anywhere, if you just want to relax and be with the nature around you, this could be the perfect place. Once you are relaxed, however, if the urge to explore comes over you, then you will have a large area to explore. There are numerous hiking trails along the Naches river and Bolder cave is about 15 miles away. Within an hour's scenic drive, there is Mount Rainier National Park, over a hundred unique wineries, Yakima Nation Casino and many great shops to explore. Then you can return to soak in the hot tub and watch the brilliant stars and other mystery objects move across the sky.

                  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.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About the owner: 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 it here almost every weekend in the past five 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. This place allows me to really relax, but it is also a place to dream and be creative. I feel inspired every time I set foot on the property. Among the trees, the hills and the wood, life's problems seem to evaporate and real answers seem to come naturally and spontaneously. For me this has been a marvelous place to dream, make music, enjoy relationships, write, learn and explore life to the fullest.

                  Why the Owner Chose Naches:
                  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.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
                  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.
