Ninety minutes flat.

From their Eastside driveway, that's all it takes Dana and Brad Straw and their 10- year-old twins to arrive at the front door of their own getaway suite in The Lodge at Suncadia. It's part of the reason their Lodge retreat - perched atop a bluff with Cascade Mountain views near the fresh waters of the Cle Elum River - has become what Dana calls an all-season sanctuary that "immediately puts us in the vacation spirit."

Now, with family festivities, premier golf, miles of nature-kissed trails and twilight s'mores roasting over a crackling fire pit, the Suncadia Real Estate Sales Co. is kicking it up a notch here by opening one- and- two-bedroom furnished and summer-move-in-ready Northwest-style luxury condominiums at The Lodge for appointment-based sales tours.

Evocative of great U.S. National Park lodges of the West, The Lodge at Suncadia offers its own modern interpretation of mountain condominium living. By showcasing dramatic timber beams and timeless stone finishes, and cozy spaces that define intimacy, the voluminous ceilings and grandeur glass frames soaring windows to Suncadia's world.

Just minutes off Interstate 90 east of Snoqualmie Pass, The Lodge offers two distinctly designed condominium layout options, suitable for couples, small or larger families in the heart of its resort setting.

The first, with 870 square feet, features one-bedroom/one-bathrooms selections. Use the well-appointed kitchen with stainless steel European-style appliances for dining or entertaining, cuddle up on queen sofa/sleeper in the living area near the cozy gas fireplace, or retreat to the king-sized bed in the master quarters after a day spent exploring the sprawling 6,000 acres of forested mountain foothills and lush meadows.

To host larger groups, the 1,325-square-foot two-bedroom/two-bath designs offer a masters quarters for a bit more sanctuary, and an additional sleeping bedroom with its two queen-sized beds for family members or guests. The gourmet kitchen, dining and living areas are equally spacious and gracious in these plans.

Both home styles offer entertainment-ready flat-screen TVs, gas fireplaces and stacking washer/dryer systems. In many choices, a balcony is available with a river or village vista.

From a pricing perspective, says Suncadia Real Estate Sales Company vice president Richard Seay, the timing couldn't be better. One-bedroom condominiums start at $170,000 just in time for the summer's outdoor movie nights, the Swiftwater Cellars winery summer concerts series, and a whopper of a four-day Fourth of July holiday weekend with carnival games and more. Disc golf at Dawson Park, pick-up basketball, fly-fishing classes, yoga, Zumba and cardio-kickboxing pack the calendar throughout the summer.

Those interested in buying a condo at The Lodge may ask Suncadia Real Estate Sales Co. representatives about the possibility of extending their tour into an overnight opportunity, "when you can enjoy sunrise-to-sunset amenities and maximize every moment at Suncadia," Seay says.

It's this kind of fun that drew fishing enthusiast John Hjort and his wife, Barbara, of Edmonds, to their first condominium at The Lodge. Within a year, they bought two more with their four sons and five grandchildren. Now, he says, even the staff here feels like kin.

"It was so friendly and accommodating, we felt like one of the family from the very start," says Hjort. "It's a good feeling, because they treat you so good."

Even the Straw family's chocolate lab gets first-class guest treatment - and there is always something to do.

"In the spring or summer I may play golf, or swim in the indoor pool or work out in the fitness center," she says. "I like knowing we can go hiking and biking. We have picnics and fly kites - and it's just so easy to get here. You can truly leave after work on a Friday and be enjoying a glass of wine or a hitting a bucket of balls before the sun goes down.

"On Friday and Saturday nights, we like to hang out by the big fire pit or play board games on these beautiful tables," she adds. "Here, you don't have to run errands. At home, you get so wrapped up in the day-to-day hustle-bustle that you don't really give yourself permission to have the kind of fun we have here."

Hjort agrees.

"Our kids all grew up camping and fishing, and it was always a good way to have our family and their friends together over the years," says Hjort. "We got away from that for about seven or eight years, so our goal was to bring everybody back.

(Our home at The Lodge at Suncadia) is something we wanted to invest in, not so much for the future, but for the enjoyment of our family right now."

Open daily 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., at Sales Center at The Lodge; extended tours available by appointment, 3600 Suncadia Trail, Cle Elum in Kittitas County.

Prices starting in the $170,000s
