As the temperatures climb, visions of summer days begin to take over our daydreams. This reality awaits, especially in the new luxury home community being built cliffside in Crescent Bar overlooking the Columbia River. Owners and prospective buyers are getting their first opportunity to tour new construction homes coming available in the resort-inspired community’s newest neighborhood – The Vineyard. What many dub the new, yet unofficial center point of Crescent Bar, The Vineyard is soon releasing its first collection of new homes designed to maximize adventure and immerse Owners into the distinct landscape of the Columbia River Basin.

A Spring Worth Repeating

Spring in Crescent Bar is truly a stunning sight to behold. The terrain is lush and green, flowers are blooming, and everyone is packing up their skis and snowmobiles in anticipation of the warm weather adventures ahead.

Crescent Ridge Sales Director, Melissa Camp, is overjoyed to be re-experiencing the natural splendor of spring in this familiar landscape, having spent her most recent years in Western Washington and recently relocating to help launch this new neighborhood.

“I grew up in Eastern Washington. Watching Spring unfold at Crescent Bar is such a privilege – an opportunity to return to my roots and favorite memories.” Camp spent many years as a child growing up on a farm in eastern Washington state. “You can feel the excitement in the air, and the sheer beauty of this historic and rugged landscape is an important part of what makes this place timelessly awe-inspiring and iconic.”

Spring kicks off a highly anticipated time of the year in Crescent Bar. The marina fuel dock opens May 1, the annual Pikeminnow Fishing Derby begins, and concert pilgrimages will kick off at The Gorge Amphitheater. Though wine tours and tastings are available year-round, Spring is a great time to hop on the Wine Trail and avoid the crowds. It’s also an excellent season for wildlife viewing. The sand spit walking trail along the river is a great vantage point to observe local species in the river and sky, and patio vistas from the new homes at Crescent Ridge offer more than a chance to catch a glimpse of Osprey surveying the waters below.

Peak Summer Adventure

If spring is the preview, then summer is prime time at Crescent Ridge. Hitting the water is paramount, whether waterskiing or tubing, jet skiing or pontoon boating. Plus, this section of the Columbia River is generally one of the calmest stretches, so paddleboarding and kayaking are also popular. For some family golf fun, Crescent Bar offers two public, 9-hole kid-friendly courses at Crescent Bar Golf Course and at Sunserra.

Other favorite summertime activities include bass fishing on the river; hiking, rock climbing and mountain biking at Ancient Lakes; and off-roading on Colockum Ridge and Frenchman Coulee. Crescent Ridge Owners and their guests also chill out by the cliff-side pool, grab an ice cream at Island Cup & Cone and fill up on classic Americana at the Grant County Fair. And of course, summer nights are unforgettable, whether stargazing, roasting marshmallows, or enjoying concerts under the stars at our community outdoor venue.

The design team at Crescent Ridge placed heavy emphasis on garages and driveway access in each new home. Trailered boats, golf carts, ATVs and related gear were all considered in order to deliver a home that is equal parts great function and beautiful form.

Own A Home in Central Washington’s Playground

With the first few brilliantly sunny days behind us, the anticipation for Spring and Summer fun is in full swing. Fortunately, the launch of our newest neighborhood, The Vineyard, is happening just in time for our favorite part of the year. Just steps away from the coveted marina and boat launch, The Vineyard is the epicenter of outdoor amenities at Crescent Ridge, boasting a ridge-side pool, year-round hot tub, and pickleball courts.

Of course, the signature amenities in The Vineyard are an on-site working vineyard, a future tasting room, and entertainment amphitheater – an intimate indoor-outdoor venue set with the Columbia river as its backdrop. Back at home, each design style is outfitted with expansive floorplans, luxe appliances and finishes, and floor to ceiling windows, so Owners can take-in the spectacular beauty of Crescent Bar, sunrise to sunset, from the comfort of their home.

The first collection of homes at Crescent Ridge’s newest neighborhood will be completed soon. For more information on the availability of new homes or to schedule a private showing, visit or call the real estate sales team directly at 509-787-0500.
