Just down the valley from Yakima, Cherrywood B&B&B sits on a knoll surrounded by orchards, vineyards and a herd of rescue horses. The mix of teepees and tack rooms make it feel like part dude ranch, part reservation, all beautifully designed and built. Eco-friendly use of local, natural materials connect the compound to the land in unique ways, like the use of dried willow branches for fencing and shade covers.
Teepees are royally appointed in a variety of themes anchored in colors and textures from the West’s premiere brand, Pendleton. Beds are big and comfy. All the things you’d find in a hotel room and more, grace each luxury, living space. The swimming pool is perfect when temperatures soar, while soaking tubs beckon as night falls and starlight bathes you in the open-air bathhouse.
Food is a family affair at Cherrywood, with breakfast served in the dining room or out on the deck. After your last cup of coffee, it’s time to meet your wine touring partner for the day, one of the 30+ rescued horses living on the ranch. There is the “cowboy limo” option, a horse drawn hayride cart, if spending the day in the saddle seems ambitious. The horses know the way to some of the finest wineries in the valley, so hang on. A picnic lunch pairs perfectly with the wine tasting and provides the energy to climb back in the saddle for the ride home.
Cherrywood is a destination resort sure to tap your inner cowpoke and send you home relaxed and rejuvenated.
