Tumble Creek: Luxury Living in Harmony with Nature
By Tim Cotroneo
The residents living in Tumble Creek, the private side of Suncadia Resort, rarely discover this community by accident. The sheer solitude of the development’s 2200 acres is by design. The Tumble Creek enclave, situated at the foothills of the Cascadia Mountains, clings to its forested surroundings with a protective wink, knowing that word on this slice of heaven will eventually get out.
Homeowners seeking seclusion, luxury, and jaw-dropping front door vistas make the turn after spying the modest sign touting the Tumble Creek entrance. First timers follow the road wide-eyed and with a sense of anticipation. From the turn they motor another five miles before uttering their first “wow.” At Tumble Creek you discover a living, breathing showcase of nature and artistic sense of residential refinement.
Once you’ve passed the entrance, that’s when the fun and acclimation to the great outdoors begins. Tumble Creek homeowners go all in on this amphitheater of the Cascade Mountains, trees reaching the sky, and a fresh air atmosphere that feels like the best kind of natural high.
Tumble Creek’s real estate boom coincided with the opening of Suncadia Resort in 2005. The development’s fanfare was quiet … on purpose. A premium is placed on privacy, and the community’s steady growth was understated for almost two decades.
That was until COVID hit the U.S. in 2020. Suddenly, the idea of escaping to an indoor/outdoor lifestyle became one of the most sought after investments in the Pacific Northwest. The real estate demand took off at Tumble Creek, and the number of home buyers seeking to get away from it all found an outdoor utopia at 770 Suncadia Trail’s gated entrance.
The bridge spanning the Cle Elum River is the landmark announcing to visitors that on the other side something special is going on. Luxury homes, luxury cabins, a plethora of outdoor activities, and a world-class golf course were perched on a panoramic elevation that will take your breath away.
Dream Homes Go Rustic
Tumble Creek isn’t the first community to present the idea of living like you’re on vacation. What makes this Pacific Northwest development, and its amenities, unique is the setting.
Organic architecture is the idea of blending your home with the surroundings. There is a definite appreciation for harmonizing with nature seen in the exteriors of these luxury homes and cabins. In contrast, many of the interiors go modern with smart technology and floor-to-ceiling windows that take advantage of the stunning daily scenes outside the residence.
The indoor/outdoor connection is amplified with porches, patios, and fire pits connecting owners with Tumble Creek’s ever-present views, fresh air, and comforting sunsets. What separates your Tumble Creek home experience is the wealth of treasures outside your door. Alpine trails, scenic parks and streams, amazing wildlife and fishing, as well as amenities like a spa, restaurants, and nearby winery.
The Great House
You’ve come this far, your home is built, now what happens once you’ve staked your Tumble Creek claim? The Great House is the headliner for Tumble Creek members and guests.
This brand new 17,000-square-foot structure of indoor-outdoor ambiance is the crowning epicenter for all things Tumble Creek. The Great House is positioned between the Tumble Creek golf course’s pro shop and putting green, and its prominent locale makes it a social connector for the audience proudly wearing the “TC” initials on their sleeve.
Overlooking the Tom Doak golf course, the Great House is the place to go for cocktails, a delicious dinner at the Descend Restaurant, or for just taking in the awe-inspiring views from its elevated perch. At-your-fingertips activities under the Great House roof include bowling, pool, Trackman Studio, a Media Center, and Arts & Crafts.
Tom Doak Golf Course
Tumble Creek chose Tom Doak, one of America’s top golf architects, for their 7100-yard masterpiece featuring the Cascade Mountain Range. Golfers maneuver alongside rolling hills, pine forests, and weaving river bluffs.
In September, Tumble Creek is known as a haven for Washington’s elk migration. Hundreds of elk make their way through the golf course and the Tumble Creek forests. An 18-hole round while coexisting with elk is a golf experience for the memory books.
The private Tom Doak design is one of the finest courses in all of Washington. What’s great is members also have playing privileges at the neighboring Suncadia Resort’s two championship courses.
