About Alexander Gelles
We discovered this property in 1980, with an amazing view toward the sunset. Among this arid microclimate we planted wine grapes. We called it Klipsun Vineyards, local Chinook Indian jargon for sunset. This site provided spectacular terroir for growing grapes, culminating in elegant and dynamic wines enjoyed the world over. Thirty years later we continue to contribute fruit to some of the most renowned wineries in our region. The Red Mountain AVA, the most prestigious in Washington, has grown up around us and now offers 13 wineries and 800+ acres of vines.
Alexander Gelles purchased this House in 2013

Amazing sunsets and great setup!
We had a large group - 4 couples - and there was plenty of room for all of us! Spent the days tasting wine and then came back to the home to make some great food. We loved the pool table.
The sunsets were amazing. We had some windy weather on our weekend but the house was sheltered. Several bocce ball games led into a "tournament" spread out over the weekend.
Thank you for having so many options to enjoy at the house.
We all felt very much at "home."
Wonderful House in a Lovely Spot
We rented this house for our family to stay in during a hectic Wedding weekend at a nearby winery. There are not very many home rentals in the Red Mountain area, and this one was a treat. The house is nice, spacious and has a great kitchen. The yard and view is so pretty. We used the back yard as the spot for our rehearsal dinner, and it was wonderful.
The garage man cave room is a great bonus spot. In a couple hours of downtime, my sons (one of which was the groom) and I spent a few precious hours of chill time on the Friday before the wedding. It was such a great space to relax amid a lot of goings on.
If you are looking for a place to center from for wine tasting, this house is a fantastic location. It has four bedrooms so is ideal for sharing with friends and/or family.
Great family reunion
This property was great for our family reunion. The pool table was lots of fun
Amazing Client house!
Booked this place for my NYC clients who are in the wine business. They ABSOLUTELY loved it. totally recommend as a business hideaway or just to get out and enjoy the scenery and wine country.
Great place to stay with family and friends
Klipsun cottage is a great central place to stay - home away from home especially it's proximity to most of the wineries near by. It has plenty of amenities (except a pool :) . We enjoyed staying there - and hope to do so every year.
Stayed here for our annual wine trip weekend, there were 4 couples total. After wine tasting during the days, we made pizzas in the pizza oven, played bocci ball, sat by the fire pits and played pool in the renovated garage. Playing pool was like being in a time machine taking us back to the 70s, as there was a stereo system all set up to a 70s station, and we knew every word to the songs - such a trip! Alex was a terrific property manager and was readily helpful prior to our arrival, accommodating, and let us know we could reach out at any time, if need be. For us, the only drawback was there were only 2 bathrooms, one of which was an en suite to the master. But we knew that going in and seemed to manage. Definitely recommend this place if you're visiting TriCities!
