From magnificent sleeping volcanoes to tranquil lakes and breathtaking island escapes, there are a variety of ways to experience the distinct environment of the Pacific Northwest — especially in Washington. If you’re in the market for a vacation home or simply getting to know this unique landscape, consider visiting these communities to discover charming properties and an unforgettable PNW experience.

Snoqualmie Pass

Running through the highs and lows of the Cascade Range, the picturesque Snoqualmie Pass captures some of the most iconic images of Washington. Along the way, there’s the tight-knit community of Snoqualmie Pass. Prospective home buyers seek out Snoqualmie for scenic mountain living. Chalets, cabins, and acreage lots are dotted throughout the area, ranging from 1,800 to over 9,000 square feet in size.

Cle Elum

Cle Elum is another community that prides itself on cultivating a deep connection with the natural environment. Surrounded by the mountains of Central Washington, this small city started out as a mining and logging town at the turn of the 20th century. Since becoming a popular ski spot in the 1920s, Cle Elum steadily became a hotspot for outdoor recreation. However, winter sports are far from the only things that you can do when you find yourself in town. Visit Cle Elum Lake, where you can go swimming, boating, and camping. Book a room in any of the city’s popular lodges and experience impeccable service and hospitality.From idyllic lakefront homes to expansive five-acre properties, there is a variety of lifestyle and recreational real estate in Cle Elum.

Kachess Lake

Located west of Cle Elum Lake, Kachess Lake provides fishing enthusiasts a great spot to catch plenty of fish. Visitors frequent the area for relaxing and picture-worthy views of the lake. If you’re seeking a challenge, go on a hike along the Kachess Lake Shore Trail. Alternatively, biking trails present another opportunity to fully explore Kachess Lake. Easton is a nearby incorporated area that is just a stone’s throw away from Kachess Lake. Real estate options range from single family homes to spacious three-acre ranches. Acreage lots provide plenty of development potential.

Orcas Island

Dubbed as the gem of the San Juan Islands, Orcas Island boasts 57 square miles of natural beauty. If blissful island living is your thing, the housing market at Orcas Island consists of log cabins, beach homes, waterfront properties, and island estates.With its mostly rural and hilly landscape, Orcas Island is a treat for hikers, cyclists, and those who simply want to go out on a scenic drive. Nature lovers will especially appreciate the abundance of wildlife on display — various species of birds, eagles, deer, whales, and more. Some of the attractions here include the Orcas Island Scenic Byway, the artist community Olga, and Deer Harbor in the island’s westernmost point.
