Location, Location, Location.... Red Mountain Villa recently voted "Top Ten Vacation Rental" in the Washington by Tasting Room Magazine. The Villa is located on the Yakima River in the heart of the State's Wine Country within minutes of many of the top wineries in the Northwest. The home is a 3 bedroom 3 bathroom one hundred year old cozy home that was remodeled in 2016. Step back in time and take in the charm of this rustic "Old World" Italian themed design and lifestyle.

The space
Red Mountain Villa was formerly the original Train Station which has been renovated several times over the past 110 years into a residence. It was also the former home of Boo Walker, the well-known author of the "Red Mountain Chronicles" who wrote the novels from this house. In 2016 the house was completely remodeled into a luxurious "Old World" Italian themed farmhouse design with exposed structural beams, imported antique tiles and distressed wood flooring. Here you can step back in time and feel you are in the 18th Century rustic farmhouse, but still with the convenience of Internet, WIFI, Air Conditioning and large widescreen HD TV's.

The 3500 square foot house has an upstairs fully appointed kitchen and downstairs is a 2nd kitchen which is next to the large TV family room. There is also a gas BBQ just outside the downstairs French doors. Everything you need to prepare and cook meals are on site.

If you like wild life and bird watching, just sit by the river in our six Adirondack chairs and take it all in. For birds, we regularly see Bald Eagles, King Fishers, Cranes, Pelicans, Swans, Ducks, Geese, Owls, Hawks and hundreds of song birds. Here on the river you can also watch salmon jump and kayaks paddle by while drinking morning coffee or afternoon Chardonnay. Or, stroll among the walnut tree grove and fruit trees; and/or pick berries and walk the vineyards without leaving the property. It is all there on site should you decide to stay put and chill out!

Guests can also walk to fine dining just across the street and up the hill at Terra Blanca Winery which serves lunch daily from noon to 5pm. Terra Blanca is considered one of the nicest winery locations in the Northwest and hosts many weddings and corporate events annually. There is also Tucannon Cellars just a 1/4 mile to the north who also host weddings frequently in their new Sugar Pine Barn, There are a dozen additional Wineries within a short 5 minute drive including Hedges, Col Solare, High Tower, Tapteil, Kiona, Fidelitas, Frichette, Cooper and many others.

Red Mountain Villa is a newly remodeled rustic hundred year old heritage house in the wine country. However, given that it is an older house, there is always something to be worked on or be cleaned and it will never be in perfect condition. It is a ton of work to maintain and we do our best to keep it clean, presentable and functioning. But we also love the house and property just as it is and many of our guests also love the character and old world charm of it knowing it is not a 5 star hotel.... In summary, it's a fun vacation rental to kick back at and enjoy, but it's not in perfect condition and never will be....

Please note, we are not ADA compliant nor are we Child Proof in anyway. We also have 2 antique claw-foot bath tubs "without hand rails" that some older guest have commented on being hard to get in and out of. If this is an issue, then you will need to find another suitable rental.

We also get lots of requests for weddings and large gatherings; however we are not set up for large parties or events of more than eight people. We are simply not designed for this use for many reasons including the house is not large enough and we have limited parking, a septic system and the insurance policy is not set up for Events. This little Wine Villa is a wonderful place for small gatherings for friends and families of 8 or under. Please enjoy and respect it like it was yours and have a wonderful stay. Guests love the views, old world rustic feel and character of the house within the natural setting of the vineyards and river.

Benton City, Washington, United States

There are two great wineries within walking distance of Red Mountain Villa. Terra Blanca Winery and Tucannon Cellars. Many others within a 5 minute drive including: Hedges, Col Solare, Kiona, Cooper, Upchurch, Fricette and others.

Due to the Red Mountain AVA location, exposure, soils and heat units these are some of the best wines coming out of the Northwest; and many believe the best wines in the Country. There are many reasons why the wines are so good including in the summer we have up to 2 hours more sunlight than Napa, cooler nights for the grapes to rest and incredible terroir due to the Missoula Flood some 12,000 years ago depositing a very unique soil for growing grapes. If you appreciate truly great wines, Red Mountain will not disappoint you and the world is slowing learning about this very special AVA and surrounding area.

I work in real estate mostly all over the State of Washington, but get involved in other fun projects time to time. We enjoy the outdoors, sports, gardening and the odd glass of good Washington State Wine. Given all of this, Red Mountain Villa was the ideal Vacation Property to acquire and make a little wine.
