Welcome to the NEW Zillah Lakes!
Wine Country at Your Doorstep
Zillah Lakes is a planned community in the heart of Washington Wine Country. Originally conceived as a residential community built around 19 acres of lakes, and surrounded by a 9-hole golf course, it has not only survived the last seven years, it is now positioned to be the newest, closest gateway to wine country.
Some have compared the area just south of Yakima to the Napa/Sonoma area in the 1970's — based on a multitude of great wineries and convenient trip from Seattle and Portland (less than three hours). But it's NOT Napa: it's uniquely Washington...
And it's the real thing: thousands of acres of the best wine grapes in the USA covering the slopes of the nearby hills. Amidst those vineyards, just a few minutes from Zillah Lakes, are over 30 of the best wineries in the world! Most of the rest of the state's best vineyards and wineries (over 200 of them!) are within a short drive.This is the authentic wine-country experience — no fakes, no dress up, just great agriculturalists, fabulous grapes, and the best young winemakers in the world.
The Zillah Lakes lifestyle puts you right in that moment: the unhurried pace, the farms, the orchards, the wines, the close-to-the earth feel. And for all that, Zillah Lakes is a sophisticated community with all the modern connections you expect and need — and easy access to cultural amenities.
On our "Homes" page, you'll find easy ways to select lots and purchase thoughtfully designed pre-approved floor plans, with quality construction, built-in technologies, and indigenous materials. Zillah Lakes residences blend the amenities of a resort lifestyle with the charm and tranquility of a rural retreat.
But Zillah Lakes is not only a lifestyle: it is a unique real estate investment opportunity. From commercial to hospitality, from residential to elder care, boutique restaurant to thriving event center, opportunities abound on over 70 acres of new commercial land available now, or opening up in 2015 around the nearby Freeway interchange (Exit 50). So, whether you are investing in a home, or putting together a project, Zillah Lakes just might be the opportunity of a lifetime... like Napa 40 years ago.
Like any great organic community, Zillah Lakes is a jewel with many facets. Our website is a great place to start: browse our photo gallery, unique home purchase options, investment pages, news, events, and community happenings to reveal many of those facets. But —face it — you won't really know it until you schedule a visit and take a tour. Schedule a visit and make us part of your Wine Country weekend! Please enjoy and comment on our website!
