Wine Country Event Center
The new Wine Country Event Center is open for all types of special events.
The Wine Country Event Center is a 5,000 sq ft facility with a 300 person capacity, it opened the fall of 2016. Boasting a lakeside setting and a rustic Zillah Lakes design, the center will be a great new addition across from the Yakima County Sheriff Substation. Owner of the center is Mr. & Mrs. Jose Aguilar, who hopes to advertise its beautiful lake setting, large capacity, and plentiful Zillah Lakes amenities for weddings, conferences, corporate retreats, and other gatherings from all over the state. PLEASE CALL (509) 831-7777 FOR INQUIRY
The nature/walking trails at Zillah Lakes are the most used and beloved amenity at Zillah Lakes. Used by all neighbors, they are routed beside a natural stream and around and through the golf course, over and beside lakes. They are great exercise and an ever-changing landscape. As you walk along the stream and through wetland areas, you might see a river otter, a flock of white pelicans, a blue heron, a family of beavers — or stop for a pleasant chat with a neighbor taking a morning walk.
Little Free Library
The owners of Zillah Oakes Wine Country Inn (Lakman’s) will be building a small library sanctuary for the community to enjoy. The Little Free Library aims to promote literacy and bring people together, it’s a unique personal touch and there is an understanding that real people are sharing their favorite books with the community. Have a cup of coffee and read a book!
Don’t forget the lakes themselves… a chain of three main lakes comprising 20 acres of high-quality water, fountains, fish, wildlife and boating opportunity. Imagine coffee on your deck looking out on the lake… now imagine an osprey hovering over the lake looking for lunch in the clear water… and with a sudden surge and a splash the osprey picks up a fish!
This is a scene that is routinely witnessed by Zillah Lakes residents all the time! Or imagine landing a five pound bass in our catch and release fishing. All these and more are the legacy of the lakes at Zillah Lakes.
The Zillah Lakes Town Center is as close as a short walk or golf cart trip. Built off a tree-lined walkable parking oval, it currently includes several townhouses, and our Golf Course office.
Zillah Oakes Inn
A 7-room Boutique Inn called Zillah Oakes Inn at Zillah Lakes, is scheduled for completion in September 2017. By the end of the year, our town center will turn from the conceptual center to a thriving exciting hub of the community.
