Living in a community surrounded by the beautiful Pacific Northwest wilderness is truly inspiring. Tehaleh was planned and designed for you to create meaningful connections with the outdoors and others. Set in the shadow of Mount Rainier amid the woods, wetlands, ponds, meadows, and trails of the highland forest, one cannot help but want to preserve this way of life for generations to come.
In our nearly 10-year history, our community has been recognized for achievement in land and community planning, while conserving wetlands and respecting the natural topography and hydrology of the land. Read more about how Tehaleh integrates sustainability and well-being in the homes, community and open spaces. You’ll see why it’s essential to our planning, design, and business practices.
While Newland is committed to preserving a minimum of 25% of overall land area in its communities, Tehaleh has preserved an incredible 39%—approximately 1,800 of its 4,756 acres. And the use of native, indigenous or naturalized plant species—in conjunction with efficient irrigation controllers—helps to conserve water.SEE OUR TRAILS + PARKS

We moved to Tehaleh in October 2014 and were the first house on the street. We spend a lot of time reading—we're both voracious readers and can go through five or six books a week! We also collect artwork—we like to support indigenous women artists. And we love our animals. We own adopted cats and dogs, and frequently take the dogs to Tehaleh's off-leash dog park. We meet a lot of people at the park and the dogs absolutely love it there.
Tehaleh just felt different; it felt more friendly. A lot of people interact here. The first time my boyfriend and I came here actually, almost everyone we came across spoke to us—it was a friendly, embracing environment. Also—this view! And the café was one of the winners for me—as a resident, I love grabbing coffee, walking on the trails, enjoying the mountain view and taking pictures.
We moved to Tehaleh in August, and it was the best part of 2020. We were drawn to the neighborhood by the views and trails, and it seemed like a good community to raise a family in, including our dog Astra. Our favorite park is Hounds Hollow, where Astra can play all day. Now, every time we come down the road and see the mountain, it reminds us that it's a nice place to come home to.
One of the big reasons why we chose Tehaleh was because of all the trails here. Being so close to nature is really awesome. Nowhere else compares.
It feels like a retreat when you go home. When you drive up and see the mountain view; it’s amazing to know that this is home.
“It feels like Mt. Rainier is watching over us here.”
I can’t tell you how much I love the weekends here—I like to take her for walks on the trails, exercise a bit, and go have a coffee. Everything is close, everybody is friendly, and I never have to worry about a thing.
