The Experience

Ridgecrest Hideaway from December 22nd through December 26th: “We had a wonderful Christmas complete with two days of beautiful snow falling. Great walks in the snow and family time around the fireplace.”

We are so happy when guests share with us how they enjoyed their time in Cle Elum. Taking a family walk in the snow and warming up by the fireplace at Ridgecrest Hideaway sounds like a perfect day! We love it when it snows in Cle Elum! Not only does it make everything sparkling and beautiful, but all of the fun winter activities are in full swing! We’re thinking snowball fights, sledding at Suncadia Resort, and sleigh rides!

The Reservation Process

Domerie View from December 14th through December 16th: “[VR365] was very good at communicating all aspects of the stay including cost, transportation, recreation, and the status of various amenities.”

The Home

Lake Cabins Lodge from December 23rd through December 27th: “It was a wonderful vacation in the Washington mountains with a family of 10! The interior of the home was clean & nicely furnished. The whole family enjoyed sitting around the fireplace and Christmas tree while playing games, chatting, and listening to holiday tunes. The 3 bedrooms were very comfortable & roomy with adequate sleeping space for 10 adults. The game room was an added bonus. The hot tub was enjoyed by all. The family loved the scenic view out the HUGE picture windows. A holiday filled with great memories.”

Lake Cabins Lodge,

All of our homes are ready for the holidays with a Christmas Tree, perfect for the upcoming trip from Santa! We are so glad to hear that our guests enjoy the decorations and get into the holiday spirit at our homes. Lake Cabins Lodge is a perfect home for two families to celebrate Christmas together watching the snow fall outside the picture windows.

Elk Sedge in Suncadia from December 27th through January 1st: “This property was so CLEAN AND COZY the moment we walked through the doors!! The cleaning crew is AMAZING! We were fortunate to have early access and when we walked in the beautiful Christmas Tree was lit and the feeling was so warm and inviting! This home was stocked with EVERYTHING you could ever need in the kitchen and such quality dishes!!! The home had a fabulous flow and each bedroom was spacious and so well-appointed! The kids Cubs Den was such a hit with the little ones. They felt like they were camping and having a little light in there was perfect for them to read!! We cannot say enough good things about this home!! … VR365 ROCKS!!”

Tips and Tricks for Christmas in Cle Elum
Posted by Amanda Schauer | Friday, November 1, 2019


Cle Elum is such a beautiful place to visit during the holidays. We usually have a light dusting of snow, everyone’s in the Christmas Spirit, and there are so many fun activities to enjoy! If you are planning on visiting Cle Elum this holiday season, here are some tips and tricks to make the most out of your stay!

Check the Pass Report

The key to getting to Cle Elum safely is to make sure to check the pass report for Snoqualmie or Steven’s Pass. These passes are very popular and so they don’t experience closures for very long. However, just because the pass isn’t closed doesn’t mean that no additional precautions are necessary. We recommend taking a 4-wheel drive car and having a set of snow tires or chains, just in case. Additionally, if you’re staying with us at Vacation Rental 365, be sure to double-check the winter requirements for your home. Some of our homes require 4-wheel drive vehicles AND studded tires or chains to get to the property in the winter. You can check for this information in your rental agreement. You can check on the Snoqualmie Pass Road conditions here and the Stevens Pass Road conditions here.

Review the Local Events Calendar

The #1 place to go for fun events and activities in Cle Elum is Suncadia Resort. Anyone, not just Suncadia guests, can enjoy the fun activities that Suncadia has to offer! During the winter they have family-friendly activities like building a Gingerbread House or stuffing your own stuffed animal. There’s also plenty of activities for those over 21 years old, like their HDC Mixology Class! You can see all of their upcoming events here. But Suncadia is not the only place to enjoy fun-filled events! Be sure to check our Local Events page for all the most up-to-date Cle Elum events!

Plan Your Stay with our Winter Activities Page

Don’t worry about Googling ‘What to do in Cle Elum?’ We have compiled all our favorite winter activities in one place so you can plan your stay quickly and easily! We have recommendations for Cross-Country Ski trails, Snowmobile rentals, sledding, and more! Learn about all of the winter fun that is available in Cle Elum here.

Stay with Vacation Rental 365

Get into the festive spirit and stay with Vacation Rental 365. All of our homes are going to have a Christmas tree set up after December 1st, perfect for hiding presents under! You can view all of our available homes here. Be sure to check out our newest homes: Alpen House, Majestic Memories, and Hawks Landing. Call us at (855) 698-7365 if you have any questions!

When is the Best Time to Visit Cle Elum?
Posted by Amanda Schauer | Wednesday, April 24, 2019


When is the Best Time to Visit Cle Elum?

If you're looking for a cut and dry answer, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration determined that the most ideal weather in Cle Elum occurs between July 2nd and September 16th.  Ideal weather is defined as:

  • Average daily temperature between 55 and 75 degrees Farenheight
  • Chance of rain is less than 14%
  • and there is no snow on the ground.

But if you ask us, the best time to visit Cle Elum depends on WHY you're visiting.

Affordable Vacation

If you are looking for the most affordable time to visit Cle Elum, the best bet is to visit between March-May and October-November. These are the times when traditional vacations rarely happen, so renting a luxury vacation home becomes extremely affordable. At Vacation Rental 365, we actually offer all guests their 3rd night FREE during these times. Additionally, during these times you really get the chance to experience the peace of the small-town life.

This isn't to say that there isn't anything to do in Cle Elum during these times. Guests can enjoy the shops in downtown Cle Elum or Roslyn, hike, or bike around Suncadia Resort. I'll tell you a secret: the weather starts warming up around mid-April, and so you can start enjoying the sun and keep to your budget! Additionally, Suncadia has events happening every weekend for guests to enjoy. Click here for the most up-to-date events.

Boating, Jetskiing, Kayaking, etc.

Of course, if you are looking to enjoy the water, you want to visit Cle Elum in the summertime when it's nice and hot! But don't let be intimidated by the dates the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration set; it starts getting warm in Cle Elum as early as May. There are tons of wonderful water activities to enjoy in Cle Elum:

There are more reasons to visit during the summer than just water activities. There are tons of local events happening all the time! The Roslyn Farmer's Market begins in June and is a local favorite for fresh produce and one-of-a-kind artisans. Swiftwater Winery hosts its annual Summer Concert Series starting in July. If you're traveling with kids or pets, Dawson Park in Suncadia is a great place to enjoy a nice day outside. There's a fenced dog park and plenty of room for kids to run around and play. Also, Suncadia Resort has two championship golf courses available to the public: Prospector and Rope Rider. Vacation Rental 365 even has some homes right on the green!

Snowmobiling, Snowshoeing, Skiing, etc.

Cle Elum is a wonderful place to enjoy a blanket of snow. There's plenty of snowmobiling trails and the snowshoeing/ cross-country skiing trails in Suncadia are miles long! This last year we started getting snow in December and experienced Snowmageddon 2019 in February! Guests are advised to expect snow if they book a stay between December and March.

Remember that if you plan to visit Cle Elum during the Winter to bring chains or equip your vehicle with studded tires. Coming over Snoqualmie or Stevens pass can be tricky if you are not comfortable driving in the snow. You can check the road conditions of the passes here. Once you are over the pass, snowplows maintain city roads.

Additionally, all Vacation Rental 365 driveways will be cleared before any guests arrive. We also provide snow shovels during guests' stay so we don't interrupt their stay with our snowplow. If a guest would like us to clear their driveway during their stay, please make prior arrangements by emailing us at booknow@myvr365.com or calling us at (855) 698-7365. We would be happy to do this for you!

Stay with Vacation Rental 365

We have an incredible selection of properties, from Suncadia Resort homes to accommodations in Roslyn Ridge.

Avoid the AirBnB or VRBO Booking Fee!
Posted by Amanda Schauer | Monday, February 18, 2019


So you've found the perfect home for you and your guests! It's available for the dates you want and the price is within your budget. You go to check-out and notice that there are all these extra service fees that are pushing the price up. What? You don't want to pay for all that! You just want a wonderful, fun vacation at the lowest price possible. But if you're booking through any of the following sites, you could be paying more than you need to be.

The following are the service fee rates for the most popular vacation rental booking sites:

This can be potentially HUNDREDS of dollars you are losing out on because of one little mistake: you aren't booking direct. Let me explain.

Sites like AirBnB and VRBO act like a travel agent for vacation rentals, connecting guests to vacation homes that they may be interested in. People can use sites like AirBnB if they only have one home, or if they are a property management company, like Vacation Rental 365. If they are a property manager, this means that they are going to be increasing their prices to account for the service fee that they're being charged.

A property that is $400 per night on AirBnB would only be $334 per night if you book directly through the property manger.

That's $66 a night that could be put towards other great things during your trip!

So how do you get the best deal? Well, for Vacation Rental 365, you can google Vacation Rental 365 or click the link here. This will take you to our direct website. From there you can find all kinds of beautiful properties in Cle Elum, Roslyn Ridge, and Suncadia Resort that are available at the lowest prices possible! Just enter the dates you are looking for and click 'Find Rental' on our homepage. Once you find a house that catches your eye you can take a virtual tour without ever leaving your living room! Not only that, but VacationRental365.com has lots of amazing resources for upcoming guests. You can find information about recommended activities, local attractions, special offers, and upcoming events!

Don't spend more than you need to. The next time you book, remember to book direct.

Top 3 Vacation Rental 365 Homes of 2018
Posted by Amanda Schauer | Monday, February 11, 2019


2018 was an amazing year for Vacation Rental 365! We brought 13 new properties into the Vacation Rental 365 family and we cannot wait to see what's in store for us in 2019. Here are the top 3 homes that guests couldn't get enough of in 2018!

Pine Ridge Estate

By far our largest home, this beautiful 7,000 square foot estate is the epitome of luxury. This home has an open layout that showcases the high, vaulted ceilings and beautiful furnishings. The covered outdoor patio features a state of the art gas BBQ and gas burner cook top. Above the garage there's a private game room and kitchenette. Above all, there's a wonderful private hot tub so guests can soak their troubles away. Hailed by our guests as being a comfotable and peaceful retreat, a past guest wrote that: 

"This lodge is perfect for a lare group. It's spacious, well laid out, comfortable, and yet elegant. There is plenty of space for cooking and the kitchen is more than adequately stocked. The outdoor space is also comfortable and peaceful with a great BBQ, picnic tables and outdoor heaters. We saw wild turkeys and deer during our stay! The furniture is also very cozy to snuggle up on in front of a warm fire. The bedrooms all have attached bathrooms and the beds are comfortable. There are no shortage of things to do in this area. You won't be disappointed."

Check Pine Ridge Estate's availability.

Evergreen Mountain Lodge

It's no secrety why this home is popular with our guests. This home has a massive, AWESOME, game room in the garage. There are hours of fun to be had in the heated garage game room in Evergreen Mountain Lodge. You can play Rock Band on the XBox360 Kinect, shoot some pool, or enjoy some old fashioned arcade games like Space Mission Pinball! But that's not all! There's also a Ping Pong Table, Air Hockey, Foosball, and a Smart TV with Internet Movie Streaming. There's no need to go to an arcade when you have an arcade in your Vacation Home. For more homes that have amazing game rooms, check out our blog post. Not only that, but guests can rent this home and the neighboring home, Cascade Mountain Villa, and sleep up to 30 people! As a past guest so eloquently put it:

"This 3-day retreat at Evergreen Mountain Lodge was a wonderful experience and everything we needed for our guests. The space was huge even for our party of 20. The open space made it comfy enough to have movie nights in the livingroom where most of us naturally gathered. The bonus was not the playroom, jacuzzi, or firepit but our special guests: DEER! We were surprised at how they just appeared in the backyard while we were having breakfast. Our neighbors were actually noisier when they passed by but we still had a good time with no complaints. Definitely will recommend again."

Check Evergreen Mountain Lodge's Availability

Elk Run Lodge

This beautiful home in Suncadia Resort is located on the 4th green of the Rope Rider Golf Course, making for amazing views and nearby activities. The game room downstairs is just detached enough from the rest of the home that the kids can have a great time while the adults are relaxing upstairs. The home itself is amazingly beautiful, showcasing exposed beams, gas fireplaces, and stunning accents that are sure to impress. Guests can enjoy the heated seating area on the main floor, or cook up a feast in the spacious chef's kitchen. Whatever you are looking for in a vacation home, Elk Run Lodge has it, and more!

"We rented a couple of rental properties in Suncadia to accommodate a large group, celebrating my parents 60th anniversary. The Elk Run Lodge was by far the best of all. Your back yard being the golf course, views from upper and lower level decks is gorgeous. Enough open concept play area downstairs. Loaded master bedroom and comfortable other rooms. Most importantly, very accessible and helpful representatives when you rent it from their website."

Check Elk Run Lodge's Availability.

5 Vacation Rental 365 Homes with EPIC Game Rooms
Posted by Amanda Schauer | Wednesday, January 16, 2019


At Vacation Rental 365 we have a wide variety of homes that include Ping Pong Tables, Foosball, or Pop-A-Shot. But for the homes with the most epic game rooms, check out the list below. These homes are perfect for families with lots of kids or guests that are looking for a fun weekend in.

Elk Run Lodge

The Elk Run Lodge game room makes it easy for guests to enjoy playing games at all hours of the day. This game room is downstairs, away from the bedrooms, so that kids can play a match of Ping Pong or watch a movie while parents go to bed early. This epic game room has access to ourside seating, a Ping Pong table, Bumper Pool, an HD TV, Kitchenette, and Wet Bar.

Guest Endorsement

"Our family of 10 stayed at Elk Run Lodge for my mom's 80th birthday. We were all thrilled with the house and the set up. The kitchen has a large island and a very large dining room table - room enough for all of us to cook, eat, play games, and have a 1000 piece puzzle laid out. 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. The house was perfect in every way and very well maintained. I'm a snob, and terribly picky about where I stay, and I loved this house and hope to rent it again." ~ Colleen Koningh

Mountain Elegance

Our NEW PROPERTY, Mountain Elegance features a heated game room in the garage. There's Pop-A-Shot, Foosball, Ping Pong, an HD TV, and seating area. Guests can start their day with some sunrise Yoga on the padded floor, or practice their free throws at the Pop-A-Shot arcade game. If you get more than 50 points, you have the new high score.

Evergreen Mountain Lodge

There are hours of fun to be had in the heated garage game room in Evergreen Mountain Lodge. You can play Rock Band on the XBox360 Kinect, shoot some pool, or enjoy some old fashioned arcade games like Space Mission Pinball! But that's not all! There's also a Ping Pong Table, Air Hockey, Foosball, and a Smart TV with Internet Movie Streaming. There's no need to go to an arcade when you have an arcade in your Vacation Home.

Guest Endorsement

"We were a group of 5 couples and this cabin had enough room for all of us! The girls enjoyed the large living room, big couch, and warm fire. We could barely get the boys out of the heated garage game room! Kitchen was large enough to make group dinners and enjoy them at the long dining table. We will be back!" ~ Haley Kocek

Elk Sedge in Suncadia

This game room is perfect for families that love exploring the outdoors. The room itself features a Ping Pong and Foosball Table, but that's not why our guests love it. This owner has graciously allowed guest to use 4 bikes, tennis rackets, snowshoes, and basketballs. Guests can enjoy a relaxing bike ride around Suncadia Resort, or play tennis in Dawson Park. Or, in the winter, you can strap on the snowshoes and explore one of the many trails in Suncadia.

Guest Endorsement

"We had a fantastic time at the Elk Sedge in Suncadia. This is a wonderful property for families. We have six adults and five kids. Plenty of room for all. The house is well stocked and the game room in the garage was a big hit. As were the bikes in the garage that we used to enjoy the Suncadia property. The house is very well stocked and one of the nicest rentals we have stayed in. We are already planning our trip back next year. Thank you!" ~ Jill McCall

Granite Creek Estate

The Granite Creek Estate garage game room has Air Hockey, Pop-A-Shot, and Ping Pong. But the real gem is the kids entertainment room upstairs. Theres a basket of toys for children to enjoy, a large HD TV with plenty of DVDs, and a collapisble play tunnel. After a long day of playing, there's a twin over full bunk bed for kids to collapse in.

Guest Endorsement

"We had an incredible stay. It was perfect for our mix of kids and adults. Plenty of privacy and space. Lots of toys were provided, which made it feel like Christmas for the kiddos. I can't wait to book this location again!"

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. ”

- DHATT 1/16/19

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!”

- WALKER 12/18/18

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!

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
