Red Mountain Villa is located on the Yakima River in the heart of the Washington Wine Country. It is within walking distance of Terra Blanca Winery and Tucannon Cellars; and within a five minute drive of all the other major Red Mountain Vineyards and Wineries.
Modeled after an old Italian Villa, you find yourself wondering if you happened to have stumbled upon a time machine set to the 18th Century Italy. Of course the 60 inch LCD TV, Direct TV and WIFI access will assure you otherwise. Drink and eat from our land, walk along the river (or float) or stroll amongst the vines, experience the authenticity of Red Mountain in an "Old World" back to nature way. You can also experience fine dining at Terra Blanc vineyards across the street who offer lunch from noon to 5pm. Come and see why Red Mountain's vineyards are talked about across the world.
The private property farm house is set on a couple acres of vineyards, fruit orchards, gardens, raspberry and blackberry bushes. There is also a hazelnut and a walnut tree grove along the river. Guests are welcome to pick fresh fruit and berries for personal consumption during their stay at Red Mountain Villa.
The well appointed home was built 110 years ago originally as the local Railway Station. It has been expanded and renovated a few times, but was completely renovated in 2016 with an Italian classical theme and "Old World" feel. It is a rustic and luxurious 3200 square foot build out with 3 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms and plenty of entertaining space both upstairs, downstairs and through out the property. We also have 4 Adirondack lawn chairs down by the river for small gatherings. Here you can watch Steelhead and Salmon jumping just feet from the shore while drinking morning coffee or late afternoon chardonnay. There is also a wide variety of birds such as Cranes, Blue Herons, King Fishers, Owls, Falcon, Eagles and various wild life to watch both on the property and along the Yakima River.
The house has only 3 bedrooms and is ideally set up for 3 couples, but there is a new sleeper sofa in the downstairs family room so it can sleep 8 people. All the beds and mattresses are new and luxury firm:
* Master Bedroom is upstairs with King Size Bed, 50 inch 4K TV & ensuite Bathroom.
* Second bedroom is upstairs with Queen Sized Bed.
*Third bedroom is downstairs with King Sized Bed.
*There is a new Queen Sized Sofa-Sleeper couch Downstairs in Family Room with a 60 inch TV.
There are two kitchens; one upstairs and one downstairs. The upstairs has a butcher block table and dinning room table for 8; and living room setting with new leather sofas with a view of the vineyards, river and mountains. It is a wonderful indoor setting for wine and cheese gatherings. The downstairs is designed as the Family Room with a 60 inch TV and classic wood stove all set up for football games and/or movie nights.
We get numerous requests to host Weddings on this property, however we simply are not set up to accommodate large groups. The septic system, parking and insurance does not allow large groups. So, what we recommend is that your group have the Wedding at one of the many great Wineries at Red Mountain and just have the family of the Wedding Party stay at the Villa.
Also, the 110 year old house is not designed for larges events or parties with more than 8 people. Neighbors monitor the size of groups renting the Villa. Recently renters have been leaving broken glass beer bottles, spilled food and wine and have moved furniture all around the property and not replacing items before leaving. This historic house is not set up for this type of use nor is it a Frat Party House. Please respect the house and property like it was yours.
Please no smoking and no pets are permitted in the house. No outdoor fires are permitted due to local burn bans and potential fire hazard reasons. Also, please clean all dishes, utensils and pots after usage.
A couple things to note; while we are family friendly, the house and property is not "Childproof" and for their safety, we prefer not having children under 12 years old stay at the house. Please keep out of all locked off and do not enter areas.
Use the river with extreme caution at all times and at your own risk.
Renters and all guests agree to hold the owner, family members and employees harmless from any and all liabilities or costs arising out of any and all manner of claims, injuries or damages. Owners are not liable or responsible for any claims, injuries, damages or related costs.
Due to the size of the property, lawns, orchards, vineyard and gardens to maintain; there may be grounds keepers on the property during your stay doing regular upkeep as you would see at any large resort property.
