Suncadia Resort: Tumble Creek

Agency: Resonance Consultancy

Suncadia is a resort community in Washington’s Cascade Mountains. For much of 2016, I worked closely with the Suncadia Real Estate team to promote home ownership opportunities in the resort. Our digital campaigns for neighbourhoods Nelson Preserve and Tumble Creek proved particularly effective, significantly exceeding goals for homesite sales. For both campaigns, I wrote digital display ads, social media content, print ads, native advertising and eblasts, all of which pointed potential homebuyers to a landing page where they could learn more about the community and download a digital brochure. Below is an excerpt from the Tumble Creek campaign ebrochure.

You're Home

Every time you cross the old Cle Elum bridge, you feel the energy rise. For your kids, the bridge brings a palpable jolt of excitement. It means you’re almost there – and fun, freedom, and room to roam are just around the bend. 

For you, it’s a sigh of relief. You feel like you were just in the hustle and bustle of the city – because you were, less than 90 minutes ago – and already you’re beginning to feel the pressures of the week melt away behind you. 

Just like that, you’ve arrived at the Tumble Creek Caretaker’s Cabin, staffed by the guardians and gatekeepers of this exclusive community, here to make sure everything that lies beyond the gates – world-class golf, luxurious swim and fitness facilities, luxurious homes – are kept safe, private, just for you. 

The gatekeeper waves you through. His wave says many things: I know you. You belong here.

And welcome home. 


Named one of the top private courses in America by Golf Digest, the Tumble Creek Club Course captures the spirit of our commanding mountain setting. Renowned minimalist designer Tom Doak ‘found’ the course in the land, moving as little earth as possible to create this extraordinary golf experience. A Tumble Creek membership means all this is yours to enjoy, every day – no tee times required. 


Tumble Creek membership may be exclusive, but the community here is welcoming and inclusive. Tumble Creekers are a tight-knit cohort, bonding on the course or at the pool, and enjoying one another’s company at the Club or in each other’s homes. Membership at Tumble Creek means belonging to much more than a club.

Though Tumble Creek community-building happens naturally among neighbors, we do everything we can to help it along. Our roster of events includes monthly Corkscrew wine club gatherings, movie nights, Father’s Day fly-fishing, golf cart parades, bicycle scavenger hunts, and much more. 


The Hill House

With an outdoor swimming pool and splash pad, Tumble Creek’s members-only Hill House Swim and Fitness facility is guaranteed to be your kids’ favorite summer spot. And there’s lots for you to enjoy too – state-of-the-art fitness equipment, yoga and pilates classes, clay tennis courts, spa, and a poolside restaurant and bar. 

The Golf House

Tumble Creek Golf House and Grill is Tumble Creek’s 19th hole – where you’ll celebrate great rounds and commiserate over not-so-great ones. But you don’t have to be fresh off the links to enjoy this spot – especially on Saturday nights, when Chef Chad’s delicious gourmet dinners draw golfers and nongolfers alike. 

The Great House

As our club grows, so too does our clubhouse. Our plans for Tumble Creek include the Great House, an exclusive gathering spot for members of the Tumble Creek Club, including a bar and restaurant, lounge, club room, and locker room facilities. 


Sasse Mountain Outpost

In Tumble Creek, nature is everywhere you look. But when you want to get even closer to it, there’s Sasse Mountain. Outpost, our members-only ‘glamping’ experience. Stay in canvas tents on real beds, tell campfire stories, and make s’mores. Our staff is here to help with everything. It’s family camping – without the muss or the fuss. 

Weekley Park

Tumble Creek’s newest addition, Weekley Park offers more than two acres of climbing, sliding, swinging, shooting, kicking, and picnicking. With an imaginative playground, sports courts, and plenty of wide open space, your family will while away many a day here. 


Part of Something Bigger

As a member of the Tumble Creek community, you’re part of something bigger – Suncadia, Seattle’s backyard escape, 80 easy miles from the city. 

Just a stone’s throw from Tumble Creek’s gates, the heartbeat of Suncadia’s established four-season resort amenities await. From golf courses to tennis courts, parks to pools, trails to downhill tubing tracks, Suncadia has something for everyone, of any age. And for when it’s time to slow down, there are plenty of options for you to refuel, recharge and reconnect with your loved ones: restaurants, a spa, even a winery. All this lies just across the river, an easy stroll or golf-cart ride away.

Adventure Awaits

When your backyard is as vast and as wild as Tumble Creek’s – and a river runs right through it – there are endless enticing options right outside your door: fly-fishing, canoeing, rafting, mountain biking, hiking, picnicking. And there’s plenty more just beyond Suncadia’s 6,400-acre property. Located in the Cascade Mountains in close proximity to ski resorts and lakes, Tumble Creek is the perfect basecamp for explorers and adventurers.
