About Marcus and Amanda

Marcus found this paradise while fly fishing with his father and father-in-law. It was love at first sight! Amanda enjoys life in the sunny Eastern Washington countryside.

Marcus and Amanda purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Marcus and Amanda chose Lake Cle Elum

This property was a must have simply because of the flat beautiful property located directly on the Yakima River! There is easy access to so many outdoor adventures and it is a perfect place to unwind. Our family enjoys fishing, hiking, biking, motorcycles, etc in the summer & snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling in the winter right from our doorstep. In 30 minutes we can be skiing/boarding at Snoqualmie Pass. In just over an hour, you can be back on the Seattle side of the mountains.

What makes this cottage unique

Launch your own drift boat right on our property - boat(s) not provided. Accessing blue ribbon fishing does not get any easier! Contact owner for local guide referral.

Gateway to limitless outdoor activities in the Teanaway Valley, Blewit Pass and the Wenatchee National Forrest.

Very private country setting with easy access to local amenities where good food and drinks can be found!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Amanda and Marcus,

I just wanted to say thank you so much for your cabin rental this past Thursday-Saturday. The cabin was lovely, and I appreciated your accommodating us on such a last minute reservation. I have cause to travel to the area once or twice a year due to business, so I hope to be renting from you again at some point -- it was a much nicer stay than the options I've had in Ellensburg previously.

Many thanks for your attentiveness, fast responses, and the wonderful cabin & amenities!

Come stay at the The Cottage to get away from it all - unplug & unwind. Enjoy the tall pines, sunshine & breeze whispering through the Aspens. The property is beautiful blanketed in snow during the winter, fun the watch plants and wildlife wake up in the spring, amazing in the summer sunshine and a sight to see the trees change color in the autumn. Located on 8 acres where it is only one of two houses. The second house is the owners & no neighbors in sight. You truly can come here to get away from it all!

Clean, cozy and relaxing

We had a great time at this cottage. This place is very clean, cozy, and it made us feel home. Our German Sheppard had a great time swimming at Yakima River and playing in the woods. We will be back.

Very Nice

  • 5 of 5

It was a very cute place. It was a lot bigger than I was expecting, it fit us 4 adults comfortably. Also would like to add that the owners were very nice and very friendly to talk to.

Great secluded dog friendly property!

  • 5 of 5

This little house was in the perfect area, just close enough to town but still in the woods. We had a great time even on a rainy day with the well stocked game shelf. The fenced dog run in the back made it very easy manage 2 pups while still being able to enjoy some quiet time. The tree house that's being finished right next to the cottage looks like it will be a very cool way to enjoy this property on the next visit with another couple. I would recommend this property to anyone looking to visit Cle Elum!

Wonderful visit at The Cottage in Cle Elum

  • 5 of 5

We made our reservation at The Cottage based on it's proximity to the river and Salmon La Sac and our promise to our grandson that we would camp for a night before the summer was over. When I asked about pitching a tent on their property, Amanda could not have been more welcoming to the idea. But it was after we arrived that we realized just what an incredibly site this was and what amazing hosts were Amanda and Marcus. It turned out that the replacement pole for our tent required a bit of adapting to fit to the tent and Marcus and his friend willingly stepped in and said, "We can do this." And they did. Their raising of our tent went above and beyond for any host!

And the cabin? It was absolutely beautifully appointed and furnished. Fortunately, we convinced our grandson to sleep there the second night! It has everything you would want for a wonderful respite. It has recently been remodeled with all sorts of gracious and comforting touches. We loved having both an outdoor fire pit as well as the gas stove indoors. I personally loved the fixtures in the bathroom including the "river rock" feel of the shower floor and the soaps and lotions from England!

This site is in easy access to a myriad of amazing spots to visit, hike and enjoy. We were fortunate to be able to enjoy the Roslyn Sunday market which was a true delight.

We spent hours down by the river, which was flowing very rapidly at the time, with our books and beverages. It is a truly restorative site.

And we were introduce to the next addition to this already beautiful site: a tree house!

When we return, which we most certainly do, we will be able to sleep up in a tree house and really satisfy the dreams of all of us!!

Thank you Amanda and Marcus!
