Secluded Yakima Riverfront Retreat in Cle Elum

Bedrooms 3
Space 2,200 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, 6 Sleeps

3BD house on 6 wooded acres in Cle Elum Washington with direct access to the Yakima River. Hard wood floors, wood burning stove. Two

bedrooms have direct access to bathrooms. Jet tub and spacious upstairs loft/ master bedroom. Fire pit outside with small deck at rivers edge. It's a little piece of heaven. In the

summer it's a delight to be on the river's edge which flows

through the property. The Yakima River is the only Blue Ribbon trout fishery in Washington State. Less than two hours from Seattle, it has become one of the most popular fly fishing destinations in the western US.

The property is located on the upper section and supports brookies, cutthroats and rainbows. At lower flows, there are a number of wading opportunities within easy walking distance from the property .

In the winter, a morning's walk is ripe for snow shoes. Close to the town of Roslyn where Northern Exposure was filmed. And across the freeway from Suncadia Resort.

About Glenn

Glenn & Heather enjoy the outdoors and good day of hard work. The river property is just the place relax and enjoy the surroundings. Good hiking, fishing and fresh air!

Glenn purchased this house in 2006

Why Glenn chose Cle Elum

Secluded 6 acre riverfront retreat. 1.5 hour drive from downtown Seattle. 10 minutes from City of Cle Elum and 15 minutes from Suncadia Resort. The house has great insulation for hot summer days, hidden in the trees. And provides a perfect landscape for snow. It's the best of all worlds. The Yakima river has so much to offer from fly fishing to sitting by the rivers edge. There is a trail that can be taken down the street, through the woods on to a lovely rock beach, back over the island to the property.

What makes this house unique

Fully stocked kitchen, open air, loft master suite with jetted tub. Two additional bedrooms, one adjoins a bathroom. Dining table seats 6 and a good size island with chairs for food prep and chatting.

Two decks, one off the kitchen and one at the rivers edge. Large wooded yard space with outdoor fire pit. Close to Roslyn and town of Cle Elum.

Great place! Super comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this lovely home and the tranquil place. Nice seating area next to the river makes for a quiet space to relax. Beds were extremely comfortable. Owners made instructions easy to follow for entry into the house. Secluded and quiet was an added bonus.

The place was great but average price per night was misleading.

  • 2 of 5

I stayed at this cabin(property id #612780) on the nights of August 11 & 12, 2018. I was crunched for time when I reserved this cabin for myself and three friends as part of a pre-wedding gathering. Price average per night showed as an acceptable rate but when I chose our dates it jumped way up. In searching through dates for the rest of the year I never came across a night as low as the price advertised so I'm not sure where the advertised average comes from. After adding in cleaning fees, additional guest fees(every guest beyond 2 in a 3br house that sleeps 8 is considered additional?), service fees, deposit and taxes the price came out to be way higher than advertised. If we remove the deposit and extra guest fees the price came out to be way over twice as high than the listed average per night price. I'd spent hours online trying to find a place for us that wasn't too far, was by a river, had some space around it, and was available for our dates which were only 2 weeks out so I had to go forward with it. I know there are always additional fees with VRBO but when they end up more than doubling the rate advertised as "average per night" it's verging on a bait-and-switch scheme. Reserving it within 2 weeks of renting I knew there was no chance of getting a refund if something happened. Unfortunately, the wedding was called off a few days prior to our stay. Only 2 of the guests (besides myself) could make it and for only one night instead of two. So 3 people total for 1 night and 1 person total for the second night. I checked on the insurance and it didn't cover this situation. I sent a message to the owner to let them know of my situation. I didn't ask for or expect a refund or anything but did expect some kind of acknowledgment regarding the change. I sent another message days later asking if they could at least wave the additional guest fee but received no response. Prior to this their response time was great. The place was indeed beautiful and everything described is true, but the massive discrepancy in average cost per night was too much. The owners lack of communication when things went sideways was also disheartening, some acknowledgment would have been nice.

Relaxing and private getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at this private getaway. There was easy access to the river and the house had everything we needed. We spent two days fly fishing and relaxing at this quiet and peaceful retreat. We would stay here again. Thank you!
