Could not have been better! We will go again.

5/5 Excellent

This place is more than words amazing. It makes you not want to leave a review or tell your friends because you want to keep it all to yourself. I'm honestly surprised it was available for us. #perfect

So beautiful, so easy
The Shady Nook is so beautiful and unique. Old or young, active or relaxing, rain or shine this property has something for everyone and every occasion. The owner, Renee, does a wonderful job preparing the house and grounds to make her guests feel at home and is very responsive. Clean, cozy and thoughtful extras. Our family thoroughly enjoyed and will be back again.

5/5 Excellent

Our Ellensburg home away from home.
This was our second stay... we will always come back. Last time it was raining, so we picked apples and baked pies. The perfect weather this time allowed us to enjoy all that the river and yard has to offer. Such a special place for our family! Book it! You will love it!

5/5 Excellent

Another great stay at Shady Nook
