Built in 1927, the Elalah (named after the historic Chinook village nearby) has a unique history as a musician's home and a cat shelter. Expanded and fully renovated in 2018, we have opened the house to our guests to share with those who are looking to celebrate a special occasion, holiday, or to simply recharge from our hectic lives. Nature walks, gardens, orchards, creek, and a small lake await you just outside your door. This beautiful light-filled house is fun, hip, and comfy.
