Overview

About the property

2+ bdrms, 2 bath, large fenced yard w/BBQ, 1 block from Yakima River

Conveniently located at the east end of the Yakima Valley and just west of the Tri-Cities, Wine Country Headquarters features two furnished bedrooms with king size beds, and a third furnished as an additional bedroom with a full size bed, minus a door and closet. (It's perfect for extra guests or the kids!) The main bathroom features an antique claw foot bath tub, shower, and pedestal sink. The second half-bath is equipped with a shower stall and toliet. (Disclaimer: this second half-bath has no door on it, but it is out-of-the-way by the utility room.) The fully equipped kitchen awaits your culinary artistry. Just outside the back door is your privately-fenced yard and patio, with propane BBQ. Plenty of parking is available for your camper or boat trailer. No pets, please.

With its convenient location just off I-82 at the base of Red Mountain, Wine Country Headquarters is the perfect romantic weekend getaway for two, or several couples on a wine tasting weekend, or a great place to take the family for the holidays or vacation.

Relax on the patio with a good book, fish in the Yakima River or explore the many vineyards and orchards in the surrounding countryside.

Take a stroll along Benton City’s quaint main street located within walking distance from the home and enjoy a burger at Shadow Mountain Grill. However you want to relax, we are here for you.

About Katie Roberson

Hi! We are a family of 6 from SE Washington. We run a couple of campgrounds/RV parks: Tamarack RV Park in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, and Beach RV Park in Benton City, Washington. We love traveling, camping, and sailing.

Katie Roberson purchased this house in 2004

Why Katie Roberson chose South Central

We own Beach RV Park behind Wine Country House, so it was natural to own this home, and offer it to guests. The house is very solid and well-built, and very quiet.

What makes this house unique

This home is between Tri-Cities and Yakima, making it uniquely situated for boating/hiking adventures in the valley, living in while work contracting at Hanford Nuclear Site, or enjoying a wine-tour weekend with friends.

Comfortable and adequate

  • 3 of 5

House was clean and very comfortable. Only negatives were lack of basic kitchen supplies (towels, scrubbers, spices), no laundry supplies and VERY POOR control of water temperature in showers - scalding to cold in an instant with extremely low water pressure. Still really enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. One of our managers just died, and we apologize for the lack of re-stocking kitchen supplies. Our ad for the house clearly says bring your own laundry soap. We will investigate the fluctuating water pressure. Glad you had a good stay.

comfortable and cozy, great for families

  • 5 of 5

Just what we needed for our weekend trip to Tri-Cities for a wedding! Our two small boys loved the backyard and there was plenty of room for three adults and two toddlers to spread out and relax. The house was conveniently located to stores, parks, and wineries. Thanks for sharing your home!

Great plaice to stay in wine country

  • 4 of 5

The house is spacious and well located for access to the local wineries and walking trails. With all the creature comforts we felt at home cooking and relaxing with an assortment of entertainment options. The park is quiet and having the owner/manager on site was a plus. The only disappointment was that the hot tub was out of service.

Run Away Time

  • 3 of 5

The house and area were nice. Only thing would have made it nicer was if there was a menu of the channels that were available and if there were instruction for using the VCR and DVD. NOt having these and not wanting to interrupt your Christmas Eve and Christmas Day made it sort of boring.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. We have now made a list of TV channels, and posted info on how to use the TV/DVD. I'm sorry you didn't call the manager for help...they were there all during the holidays.

central location

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this home for 3 nights and found it very comfortable. The house and yard were very clean and well kept up and it is very easy to find. We cooked our meals each day at the house and found everything we needed to cook and eat with. The only issue I had was the barbeque was filthy , I spent half of an hour cleaning it before I could use it ( is this part of the cleaning crews job ? ) We paid the extra 25 dollars for the hot tub and they filled it with fresh water and had it warm and ready when we arrived. This is a very nice service , I have rented other places with hot tubs and they were so bad you did not want to get in. Overall the description and pictures are accurate and if you are here for the wine tasting you could not find a more central location, I will definitely rent again when I am in the mood for a wine country escape.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you had a nice stay. I will make sure the BBQ is taken care of in the future. I have no excuse for it not being clean. Katie
