Open all year round!
You'll find this 12,000 sq ft. lodge just beside the Yakima River in the Wenatchee National Forest. Lodge was built for large groups to get out into nature & have all the comforts of home.
Beautiful wedding venue & great for conferences or family reunions.
Lots of activities available nearby: hiking, hunting, ATV trails, & cross country skiing.
Sister-property to Twin Ponds Cabin - Easton, WA.
*Sorry, we are booked every weekend Summer 2018*
We are renting Lodge only as a single unit-- not renting rooms separately-- so best for group stays and events. Although Airbnb's system doesn't go above 16, the Lodge has beds to accommodate 40+.
Base pricing shown here is based on use of all meeting spaces and overnight stay of up to 20 guests. There is an additional $30 nightly per guest above 20. If you have more overnight guests than we have beds and they are willing to use their own bedding/sleeping bags, then they can stay for $15 per person/night. (If camping, then it's $30 per tent/trailer per night.)
**NOTE: Base Pricing for 2019 is for up to 30 guests!**
*Discounts for longer stays! -- 3rd night- 25% discount / 4th night & more- 40% discount.*
Larger events like conferences or weddings, where there are more people attending than those staying overnight, carry an additional usage fee for the day(s) of the event:
*50 to 120 total guests: $750
*121 to 200 total guests: $1000
**NOTE: Event fee for 2019 will be: $750 for up to 100 guests and $1000 for over 100.**
It is also possible to rent for a day-use event as well, without use of sleeping rooms. These prices are flexible depending on number of guests, so be sure to contact me with your inquiry.

Zugang für Gäste
Most of the Lodge will be accessible to guests with the exception of rooms on the left side of the Lodge on both the 1st and 2nd floor-- those are used privately by the ownership (and are marked as "Private").
If anyone is found to have entered those private spaces, the reservation will IMMEDIATELY be cancelled and you will be asked to leave. (Sorry, we've had guests that broke into those areas in the past and it won't be tolerated.)
Interaktion mit Gästen
I or my maintenance engineer will be on site at least on the day of arrival to give a simple tour and handle any questions or requests. We have 24 hour camera surveillance in all public areas inside and outside of the Lodge for security reasons.
Weitere wichtige Infos
The road leading into the Lodge is a dirt & gravel road and can be bumpy at times, snow-packed in winter (have AWD or good traction tires) and very dusty during summer. Speeds should be kept to 25 mph or less.
-NO SMOKING inside the Lodge or any room ever.
-WiFi is thru satellite internet, which is notoriously slow & data usage very limited. (Once limit is reached, nothing more will be added). Only useful for email and simple browsing-- no video streaming at all.
-The Yakima River runs right behind the property. Please use great caution as this river has very strong currents and many log jams in this area. It is NOT advisable to ever enter this river- not for swimming, tubing nor boating.
-We provide towels and face cloths, but PLEASE use them only on your body-- not spills, shoes, luggage, floors, cars, etc. For other things, there are paper towels or rags by the laundry machines.
-No pets allowed indoors.
-Eating in the bedrooms is not allowed because of the difficulty to move beds and clean behind or under. Crumbs and food scraps attract pests that we don't need, thank you. *Any such messes in the bedrooms will automatically incur a cleaning fee.*
-There are many trash cans and recycle bins throughout the lodge, so please use appropriately. Please pour out liquids in the sink before throwing cups, cans or bottles into the trash.
--We are in a National Forest so think in terms of "leave no trace"- both inside the Lodge as well as outside. Leave the Lodge as clean as you found it.
-Please pack out with you whatever you pack in (especially in the kitchen, no leftovers please).
-Leave no trash lying around in any of the rooms.
- After cleanup, leave all trash bags and recycling in the trash shed on the right side of Lodge. **NEVER leave trash bags or bins outside as they will quickly be torn apart by animals.**
-Any furniture or items that were moved or used should be put back in their original place.
-Any bed that was used, please strip off the sheets & pillow-cases and leave them on the bedroom floor (blankets should stay on the beds). **Do not remove the zippered mattress cover.**
-All used towels should be left on the floor in front of the shower.
