Guestbook comments from the owner

Things we especially enjoyed:

Having two kitchens to work out of – my daughter had celiac’s disease and cannot risk gluten contamination from breads or pastas, etc. She could prepare her food in the smaller kitchen, and we kept all the gluten food in the large kitchen.

All the bedrooms with their own bathrooms. Very convenient.

The hot tub was really nice.

The fireplace and the stock of firewood.

All the tables for eating and playing games, working on computers, etc.

The big sitting area at the far end of the house. This allowed all of us to gather for a worship and sharing time on Sunday morning. We also enjoyed this room for watching a movie one night.

The large number of beds – made it pretty easy to accommodate 4 generations!

Fantastic retreat getaway

  • 5 of 5

We held a retreat here for 45 people and had a fantastic time. The space is gorgeous, with all the wood and the warm colors, such that the interior absolutely glowed in the fall morning light. The cleanliness was impressive, and management was very prompt and responsive to our requests. Thank you!

Great lodge for a large family reunion

  • 4 of 5

This is our second year of hosting a family reunion for our very large extended family. It is perfect for our family as we can all sleep, eat and hangout in the same lodge (with room for tents & campers if needed). Having two kitchens, with three refrigerators and a large open kitchen made food preparation and serving so easy. Loved the central location mid-state for family coming from either side of the state.. It is in a very private and quiet area, but still close to Cle Elum if you need something from town.

Great Property for Family Reunion/Wedding Weekend

  • 4 of 5

Our family recently used this property for a 4+ day weekend family reunion with a wedding in the middle. The house is nice, the property is great, and we had a great time. The only thing that kept this from a 5 star review were the little things -- no soaps/shampoos for guests, video/tv didn't work, burnt out light bulbs, etc...Almost everything was remedied, but having to get them addressed distracted us a bit. If those things aren't an issue next time, then 5 stars for sure. The Big House Lodge is on our "visit again" list!

Peaceful and comfortably accommodating to our large group of women seeking R&R!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 20 was delighted with the accommodations provided at this year's ladies retreat. (Big House in Cle Elum). We were able to easily prepare and serve meals in the main kitchen, dine together and later play games in the dining room, and have our group sessions in the TV room. The ladies loved having a bathroom for each bedroom and enjoyed taking quiet walks on the beautiful and peaceful property. The hot tub and pool table were fun perks! We look forward to coming back!

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

Our large group (25, mostly singles) meets every year at a different location. When we saw the pictures of the Big House Lodge we were very excited. When we actually saw the place we were stunned! It's even larger than we thought it would be. There was plenty of sleeping space, never any fight over the bathrooms, two generous sized kitchens, a room big enough for our annual bingo event, spacious property great for volleyball or other outdoor sports, great location and stunning scenery. We couldn't have been happier with our week long stay. Oh and the hot tub was awesome!

Owner's Response: Patty, you are right on the money! The house is definitely a one of a kind and to truly appreciate all that it has to offer you must see for yourself. I'm so glad that you all enjoyed the lodge and had a good time. Thank you!

Family reunion weekend and gift exchange

  • 4 of 5

Our extended family is from across Washington state so Cle Elum was a fairly central location for a reunion weekend. The Big House Lodge was a fantastic find. This is a beautiful huge log house with vaulted ceilings and a fireplace.Seeing it from the outside doesn't give you a clue how amazing it is inside.There are six bedrooms with their own private baths with varying bed sizes. There is also an upstairs bedroom with large bunk beds and it's own bath. In the downstairs area are more mulitple bunk beds, the only drawback to those being no bathroom downstairs. In addition to all those beds, there are mattresses that can be put out wherever needed.We had thirteen different households there for our gift exchange on Saturday afternoon, a total of 42 people. Ten of those households spent at least one night. The kitchens are amazing. There are three ovens, two dishwashers, three refrigerators, and a commercial ice machine. The house was well stocked with dishes, cookware, and bedding. The only thing that wasn't supplied and we didn't think to bring was bar soap for the showers. There was plenty of room for everyone to help with cooking or just sit and visit. The owner was great and even made sure to have the house, which was clean and well maintained, decorated for us for Christmas. The only negative thing I can think of is the dartboard and the downstairs tv didn't work.The cost is reasonable when split among a large group and the time together was amazing. I would definitely recommend this property. We are hoping to make this a yearly affair. If you're looking for a good restaurant I would definietly recommend Sunset Station in Cle Elum. They have amazing homemade ravioli but I have never had anything there I didn't enjoy. Their breakfasts are amazing too - think berry crepes.
