Delphi Community Highlight

Along the eastern slopes of Capitol Forest is a beautiful area where the farmland meets the century-old Douglas Fir's.

Referred to most often as the Delphi area, the variety of homes found here can fit anyone’s needs.

Whether it’s the large custom-built homes nestled on the hillside overlooking the valley, the quiet home developments with community lake-access, or the vintage craftsman on the family farm, all of the properties in the Delphi area give you easy access to the outdoors.

Ken Lake’s development of mid-century modern homes on the northern end of the Delphi area is close to 101 and the Westside of Olympia. Built on a loop that circle’s the lake, this quiet neighborhood keeps the outdoors in mind with three community lake-access points, community gardens, playgrounds, picnic tables, and storage for your kayak or canoe.

Along the west side of Black Lake is the neighborhood of Evergreen Shores. Providing community lake-access, Evergreen Shores ranges from small homes for the first-time home-buyer to large custom lakefront homes with large lots.

Custom homes with Property

Delphi is best known for its beginner-friendly 9-hole golf course in the foothills of the Capitol Forest. Developed in the ’70s and ’80s, roughly 100 ramblers and family homes line the forested par 32 golf course, providing a great place to live and play for all ages. Just outside the Delphi Golf Course is the Alpine Hills neighborhood, providing larger lots, newer homes, and views of the valley.

Recreational opportunities are endless in the nearby Capitol State Forest. At 110,000 acres, Capitol Forest is home to 150-miles of trails for hikers, mountain bikers, horseback riders, trail runners, dirt-bikers, ATV’s and ORV’s to utilize. With rivers, waterfalls, peaks, and summits, no matter the time of year it’s a beautiful place for adventure.
