About Tracy Stroud

The Cowan Family has been farming in the Yakima Valley for over 30 years. Originally from North Dakota, David & Susan Cowan traveled out west to find work after college. When they arrived in the valley they knew it was the place for them! David has been growing his farming operation ever since. He now farms apples (over 20 varieties!) pears, cherries, wine grapes and hops.

Tracy Stroud purchased this house in 2007

Why Tracy Stroud chose Sunnyside

The property was originally purchased for the farm land and, of course, the house came with it. Since David & Susan live 2 miles away in their own hill top house they thought this would be a perfect vacation house for guests visiting the valley to be comfortable able to see the true wonders of country living.

What makes this house unique

This house is located on a hill in the valley and has amazing views in all directions! See the beauty the valley has to offer while sitting in the cool air conditioned house OR outside playing games on the huge lawn, sitting on a raft in the pool or relaxing on one of the several decks/patios that surround the house.

Great House and Location for Wine Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had 9 women staying and there was plenty of room for all of us and the house was great! It is in a beautiful location, very quiet and private. Pool was great, everything was well stocked and we had a great time! Thank you Cowan family for sharing your home!

The good, the bad, and the ugly

  • 3 of 5

The property was great for the 3 couples that used it as a base of exploration for the Yakima Valley Wine Country. It is conveniently located in the heart of the Valley and is close to wineries, vineyards, and stores.

The close proximity to the next door dairy farm and the field of mountains of cow manure created clouds of flies that got into the house everytime someone entered or left. That was more that just a little bit disappointing.

Also, we didn't realize that just a few feet from the house was a giant frost fan, which is used to circulate the air when the temperatures approach freezing, When it came on at 3:30 AM all 6 of us levitated out of bed. It wasn't bad the next night because we were expecting it.

The issue of the flies and the frost fan should have been revealed up front, although we would probably still have made the same decision to rent this property. Except for these two issues, the house was great, the kitchen well-equipped, the beds comfortable, and Cowan Estate wine very good!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us! We are glad you enjoyed the house and your stay in the valley. (As well as the wine!) We do apologize for the outside issues. Usually we only have to warn guests about the fans in the spring, this fall has gotten colder much quicker than expected and we apologize for not having the forethought to warn you. The fly issue is also being addressed with the Health Department, it has continued to get worse this year and we find it unacceptable as well. Overall, we hope you had a great time and will consider staying with us again!
