Our home is on 2 acres surrounded by beautiful trees near the Yakima river. Our studio apartment has a private entrance with a large, shady yard just for our visitors. Bike, hike, wine tasting. This area is a well kept secret!! We can arrange wine tasting, horseback riding, swimming, canoeing, and hiking. Jim speaks four languages (French, German, Italian, English) and we love our foreign guests!
We have many people tell us this is the prettiest place in the Tri Cities!
This new, clean apartment was just built! Located in the Red Mountain area but still very convenient to town. It is perfect for short term or long term guests and is convenient to Battelle PNNL, Bechtel and Kadlec Medical Center. Apartment is attached to our home, but enjoy complete privacy (Private stairs and keyed entrance)! Full kitchen, bath, laundry, dedicated WiFi and Dish TV - All the amenities of a hotel or upscale studio apartment without the noisy neighbors !
Right outside the apartment entrance you have your own shady yard to enjoy uninterrupted relaxation or small gatherings. With 300 days of sunshine, our guests love the relaxing rhythm here.
This area is also a perfect jumping off point for visiting local wineries! We're 15 minutes from 19 wineries in the Red Mountain area.
When you arrive, you will park in your own private driveway spot which is a few steps from the apartment entrance and yard! Very comfortable and convenient as there are no other guests.
You will enjoy your own yard with new outdoor glass umbrella table and chairs, A darling wood swinging love seat, lounge chairs and access to lawn games. There are park benches strategically placed around the property to view the pygmy goats and wildlife!!
We also have a large hammock attached to a large, beautiful willow tree.
