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 Ronald

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 Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Perfect getaway place to play in the snow. Awesome sledding hill on property and great trails to snowshoe nearby. The home has everything you would need. Well stocked kitchen to cook any meal, large great room and very comfortable beds. Owners are very attentive and truly care that you enjoy your stay. Look forward to going back in the summer.

Adorable cabin

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at your adorable cabin. The cabin has a very comfortable feel to it. The moment we walked in the door we felt at home. We were meeting our kids there for a early thanksgiving weekend. I was very worried about cooking a big dinner away from home, but Frank and Matt have this kitchen very well stocked. I didn’t want for anything. We had such a nice time my husband and I decided to stay an extra night, after the kids left, and Matt and Frank was very accommodating to this last minute request. We will be coming back again soon.

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!
