I don't know about cottonmouths in Texas but here they can be aggressive on land. I'll swim with them all day but I'm not messing with them on land. I've had them come at me several times when I got within 20ft.

Slimy reptiles? Snakes are warm, dry and soft. You should pick one up sometime. Well, maybe not one of those Copperheads.

Ok, sorry I derailed this thread with snake talk.

Can someone tell me about the accommodations at Selah? Those pictures with the small house looked cool. Is there multiple places to rent? Any advice on how far in advance to book something? Any insights or pointers other than checking out their web site?

You can stay in their Inn, in one of the smaller rental "houses", or you can camp outside. There is also a Super 8 motel about 15 minutes away. I'd advise calling at least a month ahead for any option to check availability.

You have four choice when staying on property at Selah:

1. The Main House - very B&B style, each room has a different theme - $
2. The Cottages - there's two B&B style cottages close to the main house. It looks like a women did the decorating. Although, I never stayed in either cottage - $$$
3. Corral House - An old barn remodeled into a house. 3 bedrooms. full kitchen, dining room, living room. Only one bathroom but it does have a pool table. Also has a nice porch, fire pit and grill. Sits on the edge of the property away from the main house. You get a golf cart included in the rate. - $$
4. Camp

I think the consensus is that staying at the corral house is the best option. Its basically the only option for groups unless you all want separate rooms in the main house.


This thread and their website are about the only resources out there.
i imagine that bookings will be tight this summer, I would recommend booking at least one and a half to two months in advance. Holiday weekends will fill quick too.

Yea, it really is. That's where i stay. Its got personality, its secluded, and it really has everything you need.

I just wish they would turn the ice maker on before guests arrive


Really, that was my only complaint.

I stayed in one of the cottages when I was there and it was fantastic. There is a hot tub in the middle of the cottages that is great late at night. I did however kick a copperhead off of the driveway one night walking to the hot tub. Inside the cottage I stayed at was first class. It was two bedrooms but we only needed one so they locked the other room and we paid less. The sheets on the bed are worth mentioning as I bought a set after we left. We also had every meal provided. Steaks for dinner, awesome breakfast and a picnic lunch. I would probably stay in the big house next time I go because it is a bit cheaper but if you want to splurge a bit do one of the cottages. Super private and really really nice on the inside.

^Can you tell me a little bit more about the meals? I've always wondered. Did you go into the main house for breakfast and lunch? Do they have a cook or was Dav/Candy doing the cooking?

Were you eating with the other guests?

Price-wise? I'd imagine there's a premium for food service.
