One Bedroom retreat with guest treehouse near the Yakima RIver. Only the main house sits between you and the banks of a blue ribbon fly fishing river. Located close to all the amenities Cle Elum and the North Cascades has to offer. Property includes private drift boat access for your personal launch. Only ten minutes from Suncadia and fifteen minutes from historic Roslyn. One of a kind property - not many can say they've stayed in a treehouse before!

Beautiful! But quite noisy
This is my first time actually writing a not so positive review from any of my stays through the VRBO website. I typically have excellent experiences from start to end but this one was a little bit disappointing. Let me just say the property is absolutely gorgeous and The Treehouse idea was so fun and new! Our group of four was excited to stay there as there was a bed in the main house, a trundle, and a treehouse bed.
The two of us that decided to stay in the treehouse bed were in for a real crazy night. It's typically pretty windy on that side of the mountains, so we didn't expect there to be an issue with the wind but indeed there was! The Treehouse knocking and banging and branches hitting the roof and the side of the house was so incredibly loud that my partner and I would actually start giggling next to each other as we were both trying to sleep but the noise was so loud! There also was a train that came through twice in the night and although it's quite a Distance on the edge of the property, it was a little bit noisy and the people that slept inside the house heard it as well. No big deal as that's just quaint, but the Treehouse noise was what really got to us. We had gone to bed in the tree house around 11 p.m., exhausted from a fun day in the area, and finally left the tree house at 3 in the morning after zero sleep. I went and slept on the small trundle bed inside the house and my partner drove home as we were due to check out anyway the following morning.
Although I would love to recommend this stay I was disappointed when I relayed the information to the owners and they offered approximately a $100 credit on our stay as a "gesture of goodwill". If there had been notations in the description that the Treehouse was expected to be noisy due to the typical winds that are in that area, then the fault would be my own for not reading it. But indeed there was nothing of the sort and a restful weekend away became quite the unrestful event.
Hope this helps people make a decision or at least be more aware of the property. We only rented the small house and the tree house, not the entire property.
Sorry that you feel the way you do about your stay. We have around 35 reviews and only one negative review by you. We work very hard to ensure that our guests have an enjoyable stay and are comfortable. Our listing clearly states that you are staying in a treehouse and that there is a railroad track at the edge of the property.
When you notified me that your travel plans had changed and that you'd only be able to stay one night, I knew that you'd be looking for a discount in some way. I thought that my credit back of $100 was generous and sorry that you don't agree.
I guess that we'll just have to settle for a difference of opinions. We love the treehouse (yes, even when swaying in the wind), the beautiful 20 acre property, the noisy wildlife (elks whistling have woken us up), the river, amazing fly fishing and yes, even the trains. In fact, occasionally my husband and I drive the one hour from our home on the west side of the mountains just to get a chance to unwind for a few hours, spend the night & commute back to a hectic life the next morning. In that short trip we feel so relaxed, refreshed and recharged.
Wishing you a similar relaxing experience on your next weekend away.
Beautiful serene getaway!!
We had a wonderful time at the cottage and treehouse! Had all the amenities we needed and was very clean. The treehouse was super fun and very cozy! Would definetly stay here again!
Great location, clean, fun and great hosts!
Great hosts and a fantastic weekend. Very clean cabin, the tree house incredible and we had a great time. Will definitely be back. Right next to the Yak. Will want to come back in the summertime for some fishing and relaxing near/in the water. Thanks!!
Clean, cozy and relaxing
We had a great time at this cottage. This place is very clean, cozy, and it made us feel home. Our German Sheppard had a great time swimming at Yakima River and playing in the woods. We will be back.
It was a very cute place. It was a lot bigger than I was expecting, it fit us 4 adults comfortably. Also would like to add that the owners were very nice and very friendly to talk to.
Great secluded dog friendly property!
This little house was in the perfect area, just close enough to town but still in the woods. We had a great time even on a rainy day with the well stocked game shelf. The fenced dog run in the back made it very easy manage 2 pups while still being able to enjoy some quiet time. The tree house that's being finished right next to the cottage looks like it will be a very cool way to enjoy this property on the next visit with another couple. I would recommend this property to anyone looking to visit Cle Elum!
Located only one mile from town but you feel like you are out in the country on 20 secluded acres. There is a train track located at the edge of the property. Fun to watch!
