The Horsfall House

If you lead a wired existence, it will stop when you arrive in Randle. We like to call it “digital detox!”

This beautifully restored 1910 farmhouse on 22 acres in Randle, Washington is situated between Mount Rainier, Mount St. Helens and Mount Adams, about two hours from Seattle.

You will find a welcoming atmosphere and peaceful setting. There is no phone, no cable, no broadband, no wi-fi and no satellite dish. There is a television with a DVD player and a video player. There are old videos and board games. There is limited cell phone reception.

Live the slow life in the comfort of a real homestead. Randle has a full kitchen with stove, oven, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, toaster oven and refrigerator. Inside the cupboards and drawers you will find most of the things you would need to create special meals with family and friends.

Basic house supplies like paper towels, aluminum foil, plastic wrap, baggies, garbage bags, dishwashing soap, cleaning products and bathroom tissue are supplied.

The kitchen nook is great place to have coffee and catch the early light. Or you can sit out on the porch and listen to the cows lowing in the pasture below, or maybe see a herd of elk.

You’ll find a comfortable old-fashioned claw-foot tub with a shower, sink and toilet in the bathroom. Fluffy towels are there for you to use, as well as shampoo, soap and a hair dryer.

The living room has a cozy wood stove. There is usually a supply of firewood for you to build an indoor fire. You’re welcome to forage for firewood on the trails on the property, or pick up a bundle at the local store if the supply at the house runs low. You’ll find folding chairs to use around the campfire.

Though the house has heat and a fireplace, it can be cold during the winter, so auxiliary space heaters are available. Likewise, it can be warm during the summer, so we provide fans and window screens to circulate the air.

The Horsfall House is a family home furnished with antiques and personal possessions. It’s not a hotel chain. It offers a unique experience that we hope you'll enjoy. Click to book now.

About the Area

There are many places nearby to explore, or where you can relax, read, or simply take a nap. The mown meadows around the house can be used for rustic games of croquet, horseshoes or bocce ball. There is a trail to wander through the surrounding treed land. You can build a fire in the fire pit and grill hot dogs or roast marshmallows for smores.

During fishing season, there are creeks, lakes and a nearby dam where you can fish for trout. During the late summer and fall you can forage for huckleberries, blackberries, salmonberries, or ripened apples, walnuts, plums and cherries. If you are knowlegable, there are morel, chanterelle and matsutake mushrooms in the nearby Gifford Pinchot forest during the late spring and autumn.

Randle is located 25 minutes from White Pass and makes a great base for ski weekends during the winter. A herd of Roosevelt elk uses our land to get to and from the valley below for feeding and water, so it’s not unusual to spot them. There are also friendly deer who frequently come to visit.

At dusk you might see bats catching insects.

At night it is so dark, you get an excellent view of millions of stars, and in the late summer, you can view the Perseid meteor showers.
