Jared Jeffries, GENERAL MANAGER of Tumble Creek


This cloistered, low-density mountain community in the Cascade Mountains is a scenic wonderland for families. It’s like having your own National Park with activities that appeal to every member of the family: young, old, and everyone in between. This is mountain living like you always imagined. A place to roast marshmallows by the fire. To spend the day cross-country skiing. Golfing on an award-winning course. Fly-fishing along the banks. Skiing or snowboarding on nearby slopes. Or hiking and horseback riding on miles of scenic woodlands. The only question is: What will you discover here?


There’s no other place like this in the state of Washington. Our goal at Tumble Creek and Suncadia is to preserve this magnificent natural setting that has been entrusted to us. As a proud member of the Kittitas Conservation Trust, Tumble Creek and Suncadia are committed to sustainable building practices, prioritizing open spaces, and preserving the pristine forests and meadows of the river corridor. Over 70% of both Suncadia and Tumble Creek will remain undeveloped – ensuring the enjoyment and beauty of the land for future generations.

A Magical land

Massive glaciers carved soaring peaks and sprawling valleys. The upper Kittitas County region has been the setting for one of America’s longest stories of intertwining lives: the native Yakama, the prospectors who came to pan for gold, the miners who came to dig the coal for the Great Northern Railroad, the pioneers from every corner of the globe, and devoted cattle ranchers, farmers, and centuries of settlers looking for a better life.

Historic Mining Town

The town of Cle Elum (population 1,792) lies two miles east of Tumble Creek. In the Native American Yakama language, Cle Elum means “swift water.” This was the traditional hunting and fishing grounds of the native inhabitants for centuries. As pioneers began to cross and settle the Mountain West, coal was discovered here. From the late 1800’s through the closing of the historic Roslyn No. 9 mine in 1963, life here revolved around the coal mines. At Tumble Creek, we treasure and honor all those who came before and strive to preserve the history of all those who graced this extraordinary land.
