Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom - Sleeps 12

Only 75 minutes from Seattle, unwinding in a new hot tub on a huge private deck, you’ll take in the sweeping views from Peoh Point to the Cascades to the Stuart Mountains. And with backyard access to the Iron Horse Trail and the Yakima River to snowshoe, fish, bike, hike, float, jog and explore, it’s all right here all year.

This is River 'n Trails Cabin, the perfect getaway to enjoy the spectacular great outdoors year ‘round, or to just get away from it all.

Sleeps 12 guests comfortably in an easy, flowing home on 3-acres. River 'n Trails Cabin is approximately 2,000 square feet with lots of natural light featuring 1 King, 1 Queen, 4 bunks and 2 Queen sofa sleepers. There is a large, well equipped kitchen with a breakfast nook and a dining room table for 6 in the great room. You’ll have space to breathe yet you’re just a couple of miles to downtown Cle Elum and Roslyn, a couple of the most historic and charming towns in all of Washington State.

The Iron Horse Trail is perfect for snowshoeing, leisurely walks, jogging or bike rides, and direct access to Yakima River—the premier trout fishing river in Washington—for fly fishing or floating just 40 yards from our property. There is bank access to a lot of wade-able fishing adjacent to our property.

The river in front of our property is braided with access to smaller water in addition to the main channel of the river. Or bring a bike and ride down the trail for miles of river access. In addition, there are local guide services for a day of some of the best trout fishing in the state.

The ping pong table, horseshoe pit, 3 adult bikes and a children's bike help make fun easy! Golf is nearby at Sun Country or Suncadia. In the winter, you can cross country ski or snowshoe for miles from the backyard on the Iron Horse Trail.

Take advantage of the events in Ellensburg just 30 minutes away. It’s only 45 minutes to Leavenworth or just 35 minutes to Snoqualmie.

Or never leave the property, enjoy the hot tub, stove fireplace and stunning views.

Either way, River ‘n Trails will be a magic destination that you’ll want to return to again and again.

So bring your gear, enjoy the outdoors and spend the evening relaxing in the hot tub or by the fireplace. The view of the stars at night are truly amazing.

About Jim Hewitt

We moved from Hawaii so our daughters could attend the Bellevue School District and are so happy we made the move. People think we are crazy to leave Hawaii and thankfully, we love it here!

Jim Hewitt purchased this house in 2013

Why Jim Hewitt chose North Central Cascades

We purchased River n' Trails Cabin for its location, acreage and views and knew we would enjoy spending time in our home with our family and friends for a long time. Cle Elum and its surrounding area has such an expansive variety of things to do all year round and we want to make it a part of our lives.

What makes this house unique

The centralized location is a big benefit where you can enjoy peace and quiet, yet be just 10 minutes from the conveniences we enjoy in the town of Cle Elum. The view from the great room is stunning with a 180 degree view of the countryside and mountain ranges. The large deck is a luxury where guests can dine on the patio, relax in chaise loungers and relax together in the hot tub. There is an endless amount of activities due to the backyard access to the Iron Horse Trail and Yakima River. During the winter, snowmobile or snowshoe in and out from the cabin too!

Lovely home in Cle Elum

  • 5 of 5

Our second time staying here was just as lovely as the first. Roomy house, delightful owners and quiet atmosphere made for another great stay. We were here during a very hot time and there is no air conditioning - we were able to manage fine with the numerous fans in the house, but it is something to know if you are super sensitive. The heat was unusual this year, so I don't consider it an actual issue. We enjoyed our time in the hot tub and relaxing on the super comfy couch. Already planning on stay here again next year!!

Great property for a quick get away!

  • 5 of 5

The house was well stocked with kitchen and comfort needs, the location was excellent for snowshoeing and/or Nordic skiing along the Yakima River, the view towards the mountains made for a fantastic sunset, and the layout of the house is spacious and inviting. Our two families had a great time.

Awesome place, Very helpful owners

  • 5 of 5

We had awesome time, thanks so much Jim. We all loved you house and the fully stocked kitchen made life easy. If you need anything call Jim he will take care of it. We had over 20 inches of snow while we were there and got snowed in on our last day, Jim didn't care about the money and just wanted us to be safe. He let us stay an extra night just to make sure. All around a great time. Thanks so much. We would definitely recommend staying here to anyone that is looking for a nice relaxing time in a beautiful area.

Great winter retreat for sledding

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house and property with the sole purpose of finding a place in the area to go sledding. We had to look no further than the back yard. It was perfect although you do have to learn how to stop yourself before the end of the yard (fence). The instructions for check out were clear, there were lots of games and kid friendly indoor activities. If there's ever lots of snow and we want a place to go for sledding, we'll come again! Thank you!!!
