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.
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 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.
Why the Owner Chose Naches, WA, USA:
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. 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.
