The Palm Springs of Washington
rescent View Condominium is located along the east bank of the Columbia River in central Washington state, about 25 miles south of Wenatchee. Surrounded by towering basalt cliffs, an orchard and the mighty Columbia River, this arid, high-desert area has breathtakingly beautiful views of hills and towering cliffs carved from the rush of ancient glacial runoff. 300 days of sunshine each year give visitors plenty of opportunities for boating, swimming, golfing, fishing, hiking and many other outdoor activities.
For nature lovers, there's plenty to enjoy. Bald eagles, bighorn sheep, deer and wild horses are just some of the wild animals that can be seen roaming the wildlife preserve on the other side of the river.
Only five miles upriver from the Gorge Amphitheater, and with many local wineries dotting the hills around Crescent Bar, there's always something to see or do in this hidden paradise.
This year, Crescent View Condominum celebrates its 22nd year in operation!
