Our beautiful guest cabin is an ideal home base for your Lake Cle Elum/Mountain getaway. You can hike, walk, snowshoe or cross country ski right out our backyard. Here, you are less than a block from the beach - the closest vacation rental to Speelyi beach on Lake Cle Elum at this price. This short distance offers you privacy, quiet and a break from the wind that often whips up in the late afternoons. If you’re looking for a little time with nature, there are some wonderful hikes/walks right out of our cabin, as well as dozens of incredible hikes a short drive away. Biking is also very popular along the many trails and scenic points (it’s short 5 miles to bike to Swiftwater Cellars Winery in Suncadia). The little town of Roslyn is home to shops and restaurants, and is a short 10 minute drive away. This area is a wonderful area to experience and enjoy.
Your guest house has 2 bedrooms, both with queen size beds, providing a spacious destination for a family or 2 couples. We've been told our sofa is the bomb for a nap or an extra guest. (A queen size aerobed is available upon request. Extra linens are stored in the cabin if you need them.). The bathroom features a 5' soaking tub/shower. The dining table seats 6, though you may spend most of your time at the wonderful center island where you will find 4 comfortable counter stools. This island was hand made of the most amazing piece of Methow Valley Fir, resting beneath Murano glass lamps. It’s a great place to enjoy cocktails or visit with the designated chef while they’re preparing appetizers or meals.
Set on the 2nd floor, overlooking Lake Cabins Road, just a few minutes walk to Lake Cle Elum and Speelyi beach (public beach access where you can launch your boat, or just set up chairs and enjoy the Eastern Washington sunshine. If you feel more adventurous, there are miles of walking trails through fields of wildflowers in the late spring/summer, or x-country skiing/snowshoeing and snowmobiling in the winter (right out your back yard - there is no need to drive anywhere to enjoy pure heaven!). You are also invited to just relax and sit on the deck, or cozy up in front of the fire and watch the snow fall (we call this great room the snow globe - if you are here during a snow storm you will understand why). A gas fireplace on your deck will be your evening retreat with a glass of wine or cocktail. In the summer, the lake is a beautiful hidden gem, with a wide open beach where you can take morning walks and feel as though you're the only one who knows about your lake, and then later, launch your boat/wave runners, and enjoy the day both on the sandy beach or just floating in pristine, clean and clear Lake Cle Elum. We have room here for your trailer too (snowmobile or boat). Just be sure to let us know so we have readied a clear space for you to easily come and go.
As your home base, our guest house has been thoughtfully designed for comfort and relaxation. We've furnished your retreat with luxury amenities to make your stay so wonderful you’ll want to come back again. You will have a 55” Samsung smart TV with full cable, a Google Chromecast so you may cast movies and shows from your smart phone or lap top, supported by Hi Speed Wifi. A Bose Revolve Sound provides wonderful sound inside or out on your deck, and is connected directly to your mobile device or laptop via Bluetooth. (An “old school” blue ray DVR player with a selection of old movies). Your sofa was built for serious relaxing, with down filled cushions. Your fireplace will keep you cozy in the winter or on chilly mornings. Our cabin location in the trees stays cool 360 days/year, and offers incredible fresh air cross breezes with windows that open and are screened.
In the kitchen, you will find every tool and many ingredients you may need to cook simple or gourmet meals, or bake a batch of cookies. These are just a few:
-Dual Coffee Maker - brew a full pot or just a single Keurig cup - We’ve provided both for you
-Frother to turn your cup of coffee into a nummy treat
-Mini-cuisinart food processor
-Sharp Henckel knives
-Kitchen necessities - olive oil, vinegar, spices, coffee and more
If instead you decide that full relaxation is what you're after, there is a range of great restaurants, a beautiful new distillary, local and historic pubs and the incredible Swiftwater winery, all that are just minutes away from this perfect spot. We have a list for you to consider and try. And, being local wine lovers, we would love to share a bottle or two with you - a selection is available to you at no charge.
In the bedrooms, you will find new, pillow top mattresses, luxury bedding and the plushest throw blankets practically guarantee you restful sleep.
And in the bath, the complete the retreat that starts with a 5’ soaking tub/shower, you will find toiletries and luxuriously soft and absorbent towels.
Custom wood and stone finishes, as well as thoughtful design details, create a welcoming mountain retreat.
Built in 2010, we've shared this cabin with close friends and family only, many who've asked why we don't offer it as a rental. Because we've enjoyed VRBO/Homeaway across the country, we're going to give it a try. We'd love for you to be our guest. Our Guest House sits back on our lot, adjacent to our main cabin, above the garage where we store our "toys." You will have total privacy, and, when we are here, you will be close enough to us that if you need anything, we're just short steps away.
We look forward to sharing our little piece of heaven with you.
