About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Our home is on the corner of Kearney and State Route 906, just across the street from Summit Central. It has 5 separate bedrooms (3 with queen beds, 1 with 2 twins and 1 with twin size bunk beds and futon), TV in each bedroom, 3 full baths, a recently renovated, fully equipped kitchen, gas fired fireplace, entertainment center with 55' flat screen, stereo, Nintendo, XBOX, vaulted ceiling in the living room and an amazing view of the mountains. It has a brand new covered deck with hot tub that's accessible from the main floor. Its the perfect ski home in the winter and ideally located to enjoy fishing, hiking and lake boating in the summer and fall.

Snoqualmie Pass is just 50 minutes on I90 from downtown Seattle. Its only 65 minutes from SEATAC airport and easy to get to with a regular rental car! There are 4 ski resorts situated very close together, Summit East, Summit Central, Summit West and Alpental. The house is 800 feet North of the Summit Central main parking lot on State Route 906. The Tubing Center is just on the other side of the main lot. SR 906 is the main road connecting all the Summit Resorts and is the first to get plowed and kept cleared of snow making walking or driving to any of the Summit Resorts a breeze. The Alpental shuttle uses SR 906 to connect the Summits to Alpental Resort and is also easy to get dropped off right in front of the house. Many homes are not on main roads and can become very difficult if not impossible to reach by car during heavy snow fall. Make sure the home you rent is easy to reach even when we get a lot of snow!

All of the Summit Resorts offer great skiing and boarding but for those of you who like more of a challenge, Alpental has some great black diamond and double black diamond runs. Summit Central, across SR 906 from the house, has the most variety with a half pipe, sledding and tubing center, multiple night runs and the highest altitude next to Alpental.

The surrounding area is either Snoqualmie National Forest, Wenatchee National Forest or other US Forest Service land. It is perfect for hiking, camping, fishing and any other exploring. There are several US Forest Service roads throughout the forest if you have the right equipment. Many of the small lakes are stocked with trout and offer great fishing. There are many groomed hiking trails for beginners and experts alike. The John Wayne trail offers great mountain biking and the Forest Service roads offer amazing off road mountain biking for the more experienced. There are numerous small lakes as well as 3 large ones minutes from the house. Keechelus, Kachess, and Cle Elum Lakes are large enough to accommodate ski boats and have easily accessible boat launches. Small towns like Roslyn are minutes away and offer great antiquing and shopping.

About Donald Alber

I grew up on Bainbridge and attended University of Washington. I've lived in Virginia, Chicago, and New York but Seattle always pulls me back. My work forces me to travel up and down the West Coast a lot. I enjoy skiing, hiking, camping and flying. I'm a Veteran and love this country but especially this place.

Donald Alber purchased this house in 2010

Why Donald Alber chose North Central Cascades

I live in this home during most of the year but my job has recently required me to spend a lot of time in the Bay Area. I didn't intend to rent the house out so it really is set up like a home rather then a cabin. Its very comfortable with real furniture and very comfortable beds. I chose to live in the Pass because of the amazing variety of outdoor activities through out the year. I like being able to access them all without having to 'rough' it at all. I've always loved the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest and having a home in Snoqualmie Pass lets me stay close to it.

What makes this house unique

Its impossible to overstate how convenient this location is. You can easily walk to the lifts at Central and that will let you ski to the other 2 Summit Resorts. You can also catch the shuttle to get to Alpental from the parking lot. The inner tubbing run is on the other side of the central parking lot and also walking distance.

The new covered deck and hot tub makes this a one of a kind mountain get away!

During the summer the Forest Service Roads at Hyak let me go fishing in secluded mountain lakes and streams with a 15 minute drive in my jeep. If you like the outdoors but want the comforts of home, this is the house you need to rent.

Wonderful, well equipt home.

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our three day stay.The home is turn key. The only thing we needed to bring was food and beverage. It would have been helpful to have more detail about trash and recycle. Great location to skiing at the pass. Our only complaint was the rain in March!

Fabulous space for family gathering & easy access to tons of snow!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for a perfect place to stay. There was the perfect amount of space for gathering for a meal, games and good conversation balanced by plenty of bedroom options for retreat from the large group/spread out. The basement entrance is well thought out for coming and going from skiing and snowboarding. Spce for boots and lots of hooks for gear etc. Laundry to dry gear. Kitchen is well stocked for good cooking and dishwasher worked well. The view from the living room was so beautiful as well as private. The gas fireplace was very cozy. Summit central is an easy walk. Beds are all good and comfortable. Plenty of linens and towels, excellent! Hot tub worked just fine and it was so peaceful to enjoy the quiet on the deck. Wifi was totally functional so those that needed to plug in could. We will definitely return. The location was perfect. Thank you!

A few suggestions would be to add some scrubbers (dish and sink cleaning) and hot pads to the kitchen. The driveway is super steep. It was not plowed when we arrived. There was continuous snow so only our one 4WD vehicle could make it up the driveway for parking. We could have shoveled but there was a lot of snow already. Not sure if there is a solution for this.

Thanks again!

Nice spacious house and great location!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this house. There was plenty of space, and the house was very clean and comfortable. The location couldn't be beat, as we could easily walk to Summit Central. There are sleds in the garage too, which is nice, although I would probably bring ours from home next time, which haven't seen as much use. The hot tub was really great for sore muscles after skiing! And I loved the warmth of the fireplace in the living room.

The only quibble we had, and could easily be fixed, was that a couple of dining chairs weren't really usable - one had a leg that wouldn't stay on and another (folding chair) wouldn't lock in position. We pointed these issues out and hopefully the owner will take care of it, but this was really minor and we were really happy with our stay overall.

Nice house, great for large groups. Loved that there is a grill and hot tub. Easy walk to the lifts!

  • 5 of 5

We had a big group stay at the house for a birthday. Good sized rooms. We even had room for an air mattress since we had more people than beds one night. One word of caution, there is a chair in the dining area with a busted leg. It looks like someone tried to fix it but my boyfriend almost took a spill when he went to sit in it. The amenities are nice. We watched movies, used the hot tub, grill, and fireplace. Beautiful view of the mountains and lots of large windows to let the light in. The walk to the central lifts is not too bad and street parking was plentiful. Overall we had a great time and would recommend it to others!
