Come enjoy our winter wonderland or outdoor enthusiast mecca in the summer. Our home away from home includes two suites three bathrooms, an open great room, perfect for entertaining. Kitchen has huge island with four tall chairs for people to gather around the cook. Great entertaining cabin. Big picture windows to bring the outdoor in. It is incredible to be there when it's snowing. If you're lucky, the elk will walk right next to the cabin when you wake up early in the morning.
Born and raised in Seattle we wanted a home to get away to. We wanted someplace that was close enough to go to and use on a regular basis. We wanted somewhere easy to travel to without as much traffic and a different climate zone close to home. I-90 is an easy commute even on a Friday night at 5:00pm.
Joanne purchased this house in 2006
We fell in love with this place due to the high ceilings, fabulous kitchen, separation of suites and of course location. Easton is the outdoor mecca of Washington. We've got the lakes, mountains, hiking, skiing and snowmobiling.
So close to all the activities. Golfing and ice skating at Suncadia just 15 minutes down the road. We love being able to go to Lake Easton and walk right out of the house into the woods. Watching the elk walk by right outside the window is beyond description.
We stayed at Joanne's Elk's Lodge for NYE 2016. We had 3 families with 5 children under 5. Joanne was extremely accommodating with our schedule and her house was perfect. It was extremely clean and comfortable and fit our families nicely. The kids had a wonderful time playing in the great room and playing in the snow while the parents looked on in the comfort of the family room. Only draw back was that there were only 2 master bathrooms so the families had to share showers - but no big deal. We spent one day skiiinf at Snoqualmie and another day sledding and ice skating at Suncadia. Overall, it was perfect - thanks Joanne!!
Oh - there was also no internet. When I texted Joanne about it she responded immediately and suggested we use a phone as a hot spot and it worked like a charm!
This property was clean and very well managed. We enjoyed our stay very much. It was also close to a little town called Roswell and the Red Bird Cafe where everything is made from scratch. The biscuits and gravy were delicious. But that is not about the property. This property also had plenty of DVD's to watch. It is also a beautiful place to go for a nature walk. I had several correspondents with the owner and she was very helpful and answered my e-mails promptly. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone wanting to get away for a peaceful relaxing vacation. Thank you again for sharing your wonderful home with us.
Unfortunately we had a very disappointing stay at this cabin. For a two night stay with the cleaning fee it was very expensive for what we received. We went for a snowy weekend getaway. The cabin was cold and we started by trying to build a fire in the advertised wood stove, typical for a mountain cabin, yet there was no wood and no instructions to bring your own. Next was dinner and the overhead vent broke and wouldn't turn off. After this we went to relax in the jacuzzi tub and the jets were broken. We called the owner, who was in another state, to ask about some of the issues. She was unable to do much from afar but eventually offered to refund a night. Once we returned we never heard from her and she never returned several emails. One of these issues may not have been a big deal, and if she had followed through on her word we would have let it slide as an off weekend, but we feel taken advantage of. Over the years I've used VRBO a dozen times and never had cause to give a bad rating but I would definitely take heed before spending your money on this property for a precious getaway with loved ones.
Elk Tracks Lodge is fantastic! The home is lovely, clean, and stocked with everything you could need. The owner responded quickly and was a delight to work with. The setting is perfect; serene, peaceful, secluded, and just absolutely beautiful when covered in snow. My family went here to celebrate my mom's 60th birthday and she hasn't stopped raving about how wonderful it was, and how the memories we made there will last a lifetime.
Just spent 3 nights with our adult kids to celebrate Christmas together. This place has plenty of room for the 6 of us. The kitchen is big enough to cook for an army. The beds were all very nice. Being there in the snow was amazing and so peaceful not a sound. Large choice of DVD's if you get tired of playing in the snow. This is my 12th VRBO and it is definitely a keeper.
I would highly recommend this home. It is clean, beds are comfortable. It was like being at home. The kitchen is equipped for all you cooking needs. There is a Nintendo Wii at the house which came in very handy for the kids. We hiked in the woods and along the river. We did not see elk but we saw where they had walked through.
Lake Easton State Park is a forested, 516-acre year-round camping park with 24,000 feet of freshwater access on the shores of Lake Easton in the Cascade Mountain foothills. The park has beautiful mountain views and hiking trails to explore in the summer and cross country and snowmobiling trails to enjoy in the winter. The park's location also allows for snowy winter-sport opportunities.
Easton Ridge once sported a wonderful trail along its entire length. Hikers can still enjoy that long high route, but the trail disappears in the middle and the southern end is hard to access. Fortunately, the best of the trail is the northern end, where you'll find grand views, rich huckleberry brambles, and endless opportunities to enjoy wildlife--especially the feathered variety. The Easton area is home to one of the largest populations of turkey vultures in the state, and the massive birds of prey (or birds of opportunity, if you prefer) soar en masse over the thermal-producing faces of Easton and Kachess Ridges. Of course, those big birds of opportunity are here for a reason--the region has healthy populations of mammals, big and small, from marmots to mountain goats, beavers to bull elk. Keep your eyes open and you'll see a wide range of critters.
Find the trailhead near the parking area. Leave the parking lot, then turn right onto an unmarked path about 10 feet before the Kachess Ridge Hike sign. Follow an old road upstream along Silver Creek a short distance to a foot bridge across the creek by a small dam.
**note** the road to turn on from the frontage road is called Kachess Dam. You won't see the marking for FR 4818 until you are already on the road.
The trail switchbacks for more than 0.75 mile, gaining 1000 feet, to reach the junction with the Easton Ridge Trail (elev. 3400 ft).
Turn right at the trail junction to head south along the ridgeline. In the next 2 miles you'll climb gradually to a 4470-foot viewpoint on the ridge. Peer down to the small community of Easton alongside Lake Easton. On the other side (to the east) look across the Domerie Creek valley to Domerie Peak and Mount Baldy.
From Seattle drive east on I-90 to exit 70. After exiting, turn left over the interstate and then turn left onto the frontage road. Continue a short distance before turning right onto Forest Road 4818 (signed 'Kachess Dam Road'). Drive about 1 mile, then turn right at the next unmarked road junction (temporary sign and a pink square on a tree). Continue another 0.5 mile on the gravel road to the trailhead.
