About Joanne

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

Why Joanne chose Easton

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Best Christmas Ever

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful house. My family of 8 including myself and two children spent our Christmas here. It was perfect. The beautiful gourmet kitchen and great room were the perfect size. We had lots of room and a roaring fire in the wood stove. The couches and all the furniture were so comfy. And plenty of snow. We sledded and played everyday. I highly recommend this great house and location. Joanne, the owner, was so friendly and easy to get a hold of if you needed anything. Thank you Joanne!! The best Christmas ever!!

Thanksgiving Wedding

  • 5 of 5

Great stay in a beautiful part of Washington. The home was more than comfortable for our two families and Joanne went out of her way on Thanksgiving day to make sure we had access. Loved staying here and would again when travels bring me back this way.

fully equiped and child friendly

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house for our three families get away with preschoolers and babies. The kitchen was fully equipped to do all sorts of cooking, the house is child friendly with lots of space to run around.

The king beds are quite tall off the ground so if you sleep with your baby you may want to use the other rooms.

The owner was very friendly and easy to reach answering all the requests in a timely manner.

We'll definitely reconsider for our next ski getaway.

Beautiful Winter Wonderland

  • 5 of 5

My family had another fabulous stay at Elk Tracks Lodge! We returned to celebrate my mother's birthday and spend some quality time together. We truly enjoyed our time sledding and playing in the snow in this peaceful and serene setting. Joanne went out of her way to accommodate us, making the check-in process seamless, and our stay stress-free. We couldn't ask for anything more and are already looking forward to our next trip!

Great winter family get away!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Owner's Response: Hi Lindsay, I am delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay and that Elk Tracks Lodge was able to accommodate your families. We got to see their beautiful snow sculptures after you left and watch more snow cover them in another six inches or so. Thanks for taking the time to write a review. We hope you can come again. Joanne

Both the property and location were absolutely beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Lake Easton
Car: necessary

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.

Driving Directions:

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.
