Tumble Creek Offers Gateway to Resort Living – Seattle Times

CLE ELUM — Tumble Creek membership may be exclusive, but the Suncadia neighborhood offers a community that homeowners say is welcoming and inclusive.

“Suncadia is a sunny mountainside playground for people of all ages, just 80 easy miles from Seattle,” says Richard Seay, vice president of sales and marketing at Suncadia. “At Suncadia, you step out of urban life and into something that’s all too rare: a place where you know your neighbors instead of just passing them on the way to work.”

He says nowhere is that more true than at Tumble Creek, a gated community at Suncadia that is exclusive to those who own one of its homesites. Tumble Creek features a golf course, swim and fitness facilities, tennis courts, parks and a deluxe members-only camping experience.

“What is it like having a home in Tumble Creek? It’s pretty spectacular,” Seay says. “Every time you cross the old bridge spanning the Cle Elum River, you feel the energy rise. When your backyard is as vast and as wild as Tumble Creek’s, and a river runs right through it, there are endless enticing options right outside your door: fly-fishing, canoeing, rafting, mountain biking, hiking, picnicking.”

Among the amenities for homeowners is Sasse Mt. Outpost, a members-only “glamping” experience. Canvas tents include real beds, and staff is available to assist when needed.

Named one of the top private courses in America by Golf Digest, the Tumble Creek Club Course was designed by Tom Doak while moving as little earth as possible to create a unique golf experience.

“Most homeowners choose to join the Tumble Creek Club, the social and recreational foundation of the community,” Seay says. “Membership includes access to the best of Tumble Creek: swimming and wellness activities at the Hill House, deluxe camping at Sasse Mt. Outpost, gourmet dining and socializing at the Golf House & Grill.

“Though Tumble Creek community-building happens naturally among neighbors, we do everything we can to help it along. Our roster of events includes monthly Corkscrew wine club gatherings, movie nights, Father’s Day fly-fishing, golf cart parades, bicycle scavenger hunts and much more.”

Located in the North Cascade Mountains, Suncadia’s 6,400-acre property is in close proximity to ski resorts, lakes and wine country, which makes Tumble Creek an ideal basecamp for adventurers.
