Cabin Sites Available

Canyon River Ranch has become the premier resort destination in Central Washington.  Desirable riverfront property along the entire Yakima River system is rare, but it becomes even more scarce in the famous Yakima canyon section where there is very little buildable private land. 

At sellout, Canyon River Ranch is comprised of just 80 owners - 60 fractional lodge units plus 20 cabin sites.  The owners here are a special group of like-minded people who appreciate the unique setting of the Yakima canyon, enjoy recreating in the outdoors, and look forward to interacting with guests and other owners who share similar values and hope to instill them in their family.

All owners at Canyon River Ranch have access to the common areas including the lodge great room and conference facilities, pool and hot tub, vineyard, private boat launch, campfire areas, river trails, and expansive river frontage. Cabin site owners also enjoy extra benefits including an increased annual wine allocation and control over the design and construction of their cabin.

Cabin sites are complete with water (system installed and completed mitigation certificate assigned), electricity, septic, and fiber service stubbed to the site.  Design guidelines to ensure appropriate and compatible architecture are set forth in the Cabin Design Book prepared by Mithun, one of the most experienced and highly regarded architectural firms in the west. The Cabin Design Book is available upon request.

Canyon River Ranch cabin #5: This 3205 sq foot cabin was built in 2010.  With 4 BR and 2.75 BA, it offers a perfect combination of indoor and outdoor living space that takes full advantage of the amazing views of the river and canyon walls beyond.  The floor plan was designed for group gatherings and easily accommodates multiple families sharing the space.  The quality of finish in this cabin was completed to the highest level possible.  The full amenities of Canyon River Ranch including swimming pool and hot tub, game room, lodge great room, vineyard, boat launches, and Red's Fly Shop and Canyon River grill are located next door.  (This cabin is located right in the middle of the busiest section in the Yakima River canyon.)  The float-in ability to utilize this property is second to none.  One of our favorite things to do in the summer months is to fish late evenings and early mornings.  For this property, that simply means floating in and tying off the anchor for the night and walking in the back deck door.  Next morning, your boat is in the water and ready to fish the early morning bite.  In addition to the excellent fishing opportunities that are just out the back door, Canyon River Ranch is also surrounded by public land and provides wonderful hiking and access opportunities.  It is common to see turkeys, mule deer, and big horn sheep right out the back door. SOLD!!!
