About Matt Snell

This property is a life long dream to own a place in the mountains where you can escape the stress of the city. I find myself needing the smell of the mtns and getting away from the rush of the city and that is what you will experience at 'Dolce Far Niente'. Property is owned and managed by a WA State Licensed Real Estate Agent/Broker.

Matt Snell purchased this townhome in 2011

Why Matt Snell chose North Central Cascades

These townhomes are lodge style architecure and remind me of the villages at Whistler and yet they are only 90 minutes from Seattle.

What makes this townhome unique

The townhome provides everything you need for a getaway without leaving the unit but is also located just outside Roslyn where the TV show Northern Exposure was filmed and minutes from the beautiful Suncadia Resort with fine dining, spa, winery, outdoor ice skating rink and world class golf.

Great holiday get away!

  • 5 of 5

My first experience with VRBO and the level of communication with the owners made for a seamless, stress free experience. The condo is well appointed and comfortable and my family enjoyed the spectacular view, watching movies by the fire and the close proximity to the many activities within Roslyn Ridge. We will definitely be back next holiday season and would like to try out a summertime trip.

Owner's Response: J. Thank you for taking the time to write such a great review and we are very happy you enjoyed your stay. The snow up there right now is the best we have ever had since purchasing the place. If you liked our place in the winter, you will love it in the summer. The pool is awesome and sunsets off our balcony are incredible. Happy New Year!!!

Just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (two adults, 2 kids) stayed at Dolce Far Niente for a last-gasp vacation before school started back up again and we couldn't have made a better choice! We had everything we needed and more. The cabin is fully stocked from the kitchen to the game cabinet to the movie case and the owners, Matt and Frank, have thought of everything. Dolce has a charming ambience (LOVE the moose!) and while it is very pet and kid friendly it's also very much a grownup retreat. We spent time at the pool, went for bike rides, explored Cle Elem and Roslyn (great farmers market on Sunday) and watched a movie every night. Our family got to relax and recharge and we're already trying to figure out when we can do it again!

Relaxing Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We just had the most wonderful weekend at Dolce Far Niente. The owners are great about communication/directions/rental info and offered points of interest to visit. From the moment we arrived, it felt like home. Lovely breeze, beautiful views, pet friendly (our 2 dogs were very content), quiet, peaceful atmosphere. The decor has a charming cabin feel, kitchen had absolutely every necessity covered. Lots of linens, and a very clean home. Super comfortable beds and great sound system with many CD's/movies to enjoy. The views were lovely, and we enjoyed walks around the neighborhood. True bliss!

Repeated Stays

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here with our two young children and our small dog for 3 years in a row and plan on continuing the tradition. Roslyn Ridge makes a convenient base camp for winter exploration. We have always found the condo to be in excellent condition and a warm & inviting place to stay. The unit is well situated to provide nice views without the feeling of being crammed between other units. Matt & Frank are pleasant and accommodating. My only concern in recommending it is that it will make it harder for us to schedule as we return year after year.

Owner's Response: Kent, Thank you for such a great review and don't worry about re-booking. Previous renters like yourself always receive priority booking. However summer time is our busiest so let me know early if you think you might be coming back this summer. Ciao, Matt

It was great!

  • 5 of 5

The owners were wonderful to work with and the unit was clean, well-appointed and we really enjoyed our stay! Being a corner unit provided a lot of light and we enjoyed watching all the activity outside.

Owner's Response: Kim, Thank you for such a great review. One of my favorite things to do there is to sit in the couch or deck during the summer and watch the sunsets from the SW exposure of the condo. Hope to see you back soon. Matt

Wonderful White Christmas!

  • 5 of 5

My only complaint about our stay here is that it wasn't long enough! The condo was lovely, VERY clean, and fully stocked with everything we could need. We prepared a full Christmas dinner and the kitchen lacked nothing. We enjoyed the condos great selection of movies, games, and puzzles. The beds are incredibly comfortable and the decor welcoming. Definitely follow the owner's directions to find the condo and not your GPS. Speaking of the owners, they were an absolute delight to work with! They are incredibly helpful and very prompt in responding to any communications. They have thought of everything to make you as comfortable as possible. My only suggestion would be that unless you are a huge fan of 90's country music (lol, no offense guys! I'm a 90's country girl myself!), bring your own music as the cabin does not get any radio stations in but has a GREAT sound system. We were a group of 2 adults, 3 kids, and 1 dog and had plently of space for all and everyone was delighted with the property. Although we did not get any time to explore it, the town of Roslyn looked absolutely adorable as well. We did go to Suncadia for tubing and had a lot of fun. Thanks so much Matt and Frank for sharing your lovely home with our family. It will be our first choice anytime we stay in the area!

Owner's Response: J/J, thanks for such a GREAT review. As far as the 90's country, well I really don't listen to it much anymore :). We connect an I-pad to the stereo and run Pandora through it for current Country :). You are welcome back anytime and we hope to meet Jo someday at the lodge and will definitely say hello. Matt
