The Cherry Chalet, features a main chalet, two private couples suites, and is located on a 2nd generation family cherry orchard, in the heart of Lower Columbia Valley wine country. The miles of trails for hiking and biking are only one of the great features of this quiet retreat.

This B&B was so spectacular, that I spent a second night. Here on business, and wanted something different from the standard fare. I cannot imagine a better experience. Owner, Steve Sauer, has worked hard as a cherry farmer...as his father and family, have done for many years before. You cannot go wrong with french doors opening to the view of the orchard. Thanks for a quiet place to work! Steve Hunker

My Husband did so good when he booked this place!!! Are stay was full of romantic and comfortable nights and relaxing mornings that should have lasted longer, I was sad to pack up. Due to it being all local in the area, it was a change of pace and I never felt far from our son. The food and the grounds of the B&B were amazing! I really couldn't have been happier. I hope my husband decides to take us back there sometime soon.

We don’t get away often, so when we acquire lodging we are always hopeful we’ve done our homework. The Cherry Chalet exceeded our expectations! The room was clean and well appointed. The grounds were well kempt and pleasing. The large outdoor patio was a paradise in itself with gas fire pit, comfortable seating and a waterfall all surrounded by mature cherry trees. The two dogs were a welcome surprise and great fun to have around. Breakfast was served in the room and was incredible in presentation and quality. The hosts even accommodated our desire for a primarily plant based diet. The hosts, Steve & Rainy, were very friendly and trusting. They pretty much give you the run of the property and do not babysit you. We enjoyed this freedom and independence. We rate our experience at Cherry Chalet a 10 based upon previous lodging adventures we’ve had. We hope to encourage some of our family to join us next year at the Cherry Chalet. Steve

The room and the surrounding grounds made for a wonderful setting; in fact above average. The inn keeper was out of town when we arrived and left the key for us to let ourselves in, so there was no initial greeting. It happens in the middle of the night a breaker in our room blew and when I called him on the phone, he was aware of the problem but had not yet taken care of it. He instructed me how to grope my way through the darkness to the garage to reset the breaker, after having done so only to find the garage door locked. So we spent the evening in darkness. The breaker blew again the next evening and again he was gone so I had to take care of it myself. This time the garage was unlocked so I could do it myself. It seemed to be a general pattern that the inn keepers where not around to ask questions and there is no office or front desk to go to and often could not reach them by phone. If you like being left alone, this is great, if you like being waited on forget it. They said we could use the gas grill which was nice but found there were no BBQ tools nor had it been cleaned. So I bought my own tools to clean it and cook. Breakfast was unpredictable; it could arrive anywhere from 8 to 9:30 so you just had to be ready. Unlike a traditional B&B where they serve in their dining room between certain hours and you come at your leisure. With the trouble we had with the electricity, buying our own BBQ stuff, and not being able to get a hold of them, you might think they would offer some compensation; a partial discount, or a free night or something but nope, full price. Plus they just assumed that the BBQ tools we bought, we were going to leave for the next people. I was too embarrased to ask for them back. It's not likely we are going to go back. To bad too, because if they would kind of dote on you a little like most B&Bs, it would have been a great stay. Room Tip: Bring a flash light

My husband, daughter and I stayed at the Cherry Chalet for four days. It was peaceful and quiet. The space was comfortable and attractive. The kitchen was well stocked with quality cookware - so nice for a rental! We'll definitely stay here again on our next trip to the Tri-Cities.
