• Nelson Lakes

    Lakeside Living in the Cascades

    It’s all about the water.
    (And the mountains and resort amenities too.)

    Some are drawn to the awe-inspiring mountain setting. Some to the 54 holes of award-winning, championship golf. Still others to the four-season, amenity-rich lifestyle. And that’s just the beginning. Built around a series of breathtaking lakes and waterfalls, Nelson Lakes gives residents a scenic setting with an active waterfront lifestyle. And living within the mountain resort community of Suncadia, families enjoy access to a dynamic resort lifestyle that is without precedent in the region. At Nelson Lakes, you can choose from a limited number of homesites, priced from the $400s, to realize your dream mountain home just 80 miles from Seattle.

    “We couldn’t be happier at Suncadia. It really does have something for everyone. If you want golf, there’s incredible golf. If you love the outdoors, there’s hiking, fishing, kayaking, skiing, and so much more. If you want dining, the food here is great. If you love sunshine, you get sunny days here all four seasons. Suncadia is just a great place to make fun family memories in a spectacular setting.”

    One resort community has it all

    Suncadia boasts 200+ days of annual sunshine (30% more than Seattle) and 6,400 acres that provide year-round recreation, indoors and out. The popular Nelson Farm Pool and Recreation area is just an easy stroll away—as is the storied Cle Elum River. With a Suncadia Club membership, Nelson Lakes families will enjoy everything from golfing, fly fishing, and paddleboarding to Nordic skiing, tennis, and spa treatments. You’ll find that life at Suncadia is truly without limits, brimming with adventure and discovery.
