About Connie Olberg
The Mountain Retreat at Christmas Creek is part of our family owned Christmas Creek Tree Farm and Group Camping and event business. Connie manages the property along with the help of the 4 siblings, and their kids. Don and Lynn Douglass founded the tree farm business that is now the largest farm in the valley. Many of our customers are 3rd generation returning to our farm to choose a tree each year. Don and Lynn built the business on a foundation of love, family, quality, and customer service. Staying at our farm will be the experience of a lifetime, we are excited to share our farm with you.
Connie Olberg purchased this House in 1978
Why Connie Olberg chose North Bend
Lynn and Don searched for the perfect property near the Seattle and East side metropolitan areas to start their Christmas Tree Farm. Required: Easy access from Seattle and surrounding area, beautiful setting surrounded by mountains, riverfront. This property exceeded all expectations. They designed and built a custom house that follows the flow of the surrounding mountains from all angles with sweeping views of the mountains and property from every window. The farm is a working Christmas Tree Farm, a park setting is also available on this property as a separate rental experience for group camping and events.
What makes this House unique
This is a unique experience. You will stay in rural privacy on 35 acres of Christmas trees and river front. Spectacular mountain 360 degree views surround our farm and the valley. You will stay in the luxury of a well appointed custom built home enjoying the tranquility of a rural environment yet within minutes from shopping and restaurants. The house features getaway privacy nooks and central living areas with an atrium furnished with outdoor living room furniture, a family room with comfortable reclining leather couches and 65" TV, a formal living room, and a loft area. A separate group camping area located in the lower portion of the property is a perfect pairing for large groups and events. The Mountain Retreat Home and the Mountain Retreat Camping are separate listings. For exclusive use of the full property rent both!

A group of us all spent a weekend at the property and it was more than large enough for our party. We were about 15 minutes from the Snoqualmie Casino and just down the street from several gas stations so if we forgot anything it'd be easy to get. The house was very clean and stocked with more than enough pots, pans, and dishware.
Enjoyed a long weekend family retreat away from the city. The house was comfortable, with plenty of space for everyone. Connie was a kind, helpful host. We’d love to return!
Great home, serene location.
Perfect for a group/family of 8-10. Communication was amazing and everything in home was there for a comfortable stay. Kitchen is well stocked with everything needed. Location is quite serene. Thank you very much!
The perfect secluded vacation property
This was the perfect secluded vacation property. We rented this vacation home home to get away from it all. The home sits on a 35 acres tree farm. It was spacious, clean and contained everything for a two week stay including a washer and dryer. Most evenings and early mornings we were visited by deer or elk. We had access to a riverside beach and fire; which was awesome! We would definitely stay here again.
Secluded withing a property filled with beautiful Christmas and fruit trees and a short walking distance to the river. We loved it!
An interesting property and a very gracious property manager.
This home is architecturally very interesting and located within a Christmas Tree farm with river access. Connie is a very gracious host and really tends to every need. There could be some updating which the owner is aware of and engaged in, but the home is fully serviceable. There are occasional campers that can rent space toward the back of the property that one should be aware of when they rent the home. The interesting thing about this is that it also has camping space available should one desire to rent the home and broader surrounding property which is substantial. All in all, a great stay and we would rent again should we have large numbers of family and friends converging on the North Bend area.
