The Orchard

Located in downtown Cle Elum, The Orchard is one of the few upscale restaurants in town. It is open from Wednesday through Sunday from 5:00 to 10:00 p.m. for dinner service, though they do host monthly tasting events. Check their calendar for the dates! The menu features dishes made with the best local ingredients. Since the selection of dishes is seasonal, the options frequently change. However, everything is always delicious, refined, and beautiful. Don’t be surprised if you mistake your plate for a work of art!

Swiftwater Winery

Another fantastic restaurant with seasonal selections is Swiftwater Cellars. Though wine may be their main product, they put the same amount of care and attention to detail in their restaurant. Their menu changes based on the time of year and ingredients available, though you’ll usually see plenty of choices that feature expertly prepared and locally caught fish.

Named one of the best delis in the state, Stella’s Cle Elum features fresh and healthy options on its menu.

Testimonials

Yakima River Retreat “This cabin is not a cabin at all but a really spacious beautiful lodge-style home. Deer wandered throughout the weekend and the view of the nearby river completed the fairy tale scenery. Add into that a nice hot jetted tub soak overlooking that beautiful setting, from the warmth of the very luxurious master bathroom, completes the restful stay for us. We would definitely come back to this lodge for summer or winter stays. ”

Breckenridge Heights “The views were outstanding and the fresh snow just made it magical. I also need to give a shout-out to the great team at VR365 that we worked with. They went above and beyond to help us and were both compassionate yet professional. Do yourself a favor and rent this house! You won't be disappointed!”

Elk Sedge in Suncadia “This property was so clean and cozy from the moment we walked through the doors. The home was stocked with everything you could ever need in the kitchen and such quality dishes. We cannot say enough good things about this home!

Beechwood Lakehouse "The cabin was very peaceful and cozy retreat that was enjoyed by the entire family during the Thanksgiving break.

Elk Run Lodge “Our family of 10 stayed at Elk Run Lodge for my mom's 80th birthday. We were thrilled with the house. The kitchen has a large island and a very large dining room table. When my parents went to bed in the upstairs master, we headed downstairs to the game room and watched movies, played games, and ping pong. I'm terribly picky about where I stay and I loved this house and hope to rent it again!"

- KONINGH 11/16/18

- BONNER 1/09/19

Cascade Mountain Villa “I visit the Roslyn / Ronald area at least 3x a year and each year the area gets more charming with new shops and restaurants.
