Located on Demoss Road in Benton City on the ridge of Red Mountain along the Yakima River is ' The Cellar'. A quaint personalized one bedroom luxury suite with full kitchen, laundry facilities, wood fireplace, marble bathroom, living room, tastefully decorated and well appointed. Private entry to a beautiful walk out basement on the lower level of this home with stunning views of horse heaven hills to the south, Yakima river frontage and Rattlesnake Mountain to the north. Vineyards are within hiking distance to all wineries on Red Mountain for the active person or a short drive if you prefer.
Enjoy cranes, eagles, hawks and many species of birds along the Yakima river. Jack rabbits are common when hiking. Awaken to the sounds of birds and fall asleep with a stunning night sky. In the winter, stay cozy with a wood fireplace. Enjoy your stay while tasting wine on Red Mountain. We are centrally located so Prosser is 25 miles west, Yakima 70 miles west and Walla Walla is 70 miles east of The Cellar.
We purchased our land in 2006 and built our custom home in 2010 with much planning. We enjoy making a comfortable quaint space for you to stay, a home away from home. A unique rental with a lot of love and attention put into our home. My husband did much of the finish work himself. The walkout basement was built with the wine tourists of Red Mountain in mind, so much thought and attention has been placed into this rental.
Beautiful views in the heart of Red Mountain.
Views of Yakima River, Horse Heaven Hills, Rattlesnake Mountain and within walking distance to Red Mountain wineries.
It's been way too long since we stayed here, but this place was truly an oasis away from the city (Seattle). The unit was beautifully decorated and very clean. It felt very luxurious and the view in the morning is amazing....when the sun lights up the mountain. It's also very quiet. We will definitely visit again.
Top notch and plush, this accommodation is very high quality. With amazing views of the Yakima River and views to the West and South, this high-ceiling apartment is anything but a cellar. Modern, very clean and spacious. The hosts are quiet, personable and easy going. This was our second visit in 6 months.
We had a great time staying at The Cellar. It's the perfect place for exploring Red Mountain as it is literally on Red Mountain! Beyond the proximity to the wineries, the owners are very accommodating and friendly, and the apartment is a daylight basement apartment that opens up to a patio that overlooks the river. We stayed there 3 nights and had beautiful views of the sunset every night. In addition, the apartment was much larger than I expected! It has a living room with a TV, large bedroom/bathroom with a king size bed, and a full kitchen (which is great becuase there are only a few places to eat nearby). The place was very clean and well-maintained. We had a great time there and would definitely stay there again.
This a beautifully furnished and decorated one bedroom daylight basement apartment. The gourmet kitchen is well stocked, including spices and coffee. The view of the Yakima River is very peacefully. King sized bed with excellent mattress. This unit is close to the Red Mountain vineyards and wineries.
We have a couple of negatives. Less than welcoming host and appear to want no interaction from their short term tenants. If you come for strict privacy then this is a plus.
For being in a wine touring area and the apartment full of wine magazines, no wine opener, although upon a request we were quickly given one. The oven had grease or food spilled in it so that when we tried to bake potatoes, the oven filled with dark smoke and set off the smoke alarm every time we opened the oven to check on the potatoes, even with the kitchen vent fan on high. We traveled in late summer so flies and yellow jackets are always a potential. Regretably we experienced both. No fly swatter in the apartment to kill the over 15+ flies. We never did get rid of all of them. We we're unable to enjoy the patio or yard due to the yellow jacket bees. We also had some issues with the fireplace insert setting off the smoke alarm. It is not likely that we will return.
The location is ideal for wine tasting on Red Mountain, just a few minutes from tasting rooms and vineyards, and the view of the river is lovely. The rental was clean with comfortable furnishings, and for all that I would have given this 5 stars. My concern when booking was that it is the bottom level of the owner's home, and that would be weird and uncomfortable. I trusted past reviews that said it wasn't. Maybe those renters stayed there when the owners were gone, because the whole time we were in the rental we heard them talking and walking around. When I go away for the weekend I like to sleep in, which was impossible - while the bed was very comfortable, the noise from upstairs early each morning (footsteps, dogs scurrying) was hardly a restful experience.
We had a fantastic stay. Watching the river, birding, using the charcoal grill and touring nearby wineries were highlights. All amenities were top shelf and in wonderful condition. The space is very large, spotless, extremely well maintained and meticulously cared for. Owners are friendly, low key, helpful and easy going.
Easy Access to all Red Mountain Wineries.
