Leavenworth house description

Greet the morning sun as it rises across the river and warms your summer breakfast table. At the close of your dream day, the sun sinks behind the mountains, and you bask in the outdoor hot tub beneath the stars.

Multiple decks and windows look down on the Wenatchee river and and out to a forested ridge at the back, Your stay at the River House provides you with contemplative moments and endless outdoor recreational opportunities just minutes away; enjoy therapeutic spa time at Solstice Spa (www.solsticespa.net), the Leavenworth Golf Course, downtown 'Bavaria' shopping, winery tours and tasting, Icicle Brewing Company, coffee roasters, restaurants and bakeries, live performances, and of course Leavenworth's nationally renowned festivals.

The recreational mecca of the Icicle Valley and its river unfold around you. From the deck, watch commercial rafters and kayakers shoot by, or join them. In the appropriate low water season, SUP board and swim where the river widens into a pool, right in front of the house. Watch and listen to the salmon jump, as they rest up for their final and short journey to the upper Icicle River and the Leavenworth fish hatchery, which you can visit!***

The house has exposed and screened decks to suit any day’s needs. Golden hued pine covers the interior ceilings, and provides a wainscoting in the central living area. Two master size suites grace the house; one upstairs, which shares a lovely tile/stone bathroom with a third bedroom. The second master is downstairs and has a wall mounted, flat screen television, and private bath with shower and a separate non-jetted soaking tub set in a tile deck.

All three bedrooms have queen beds, which are made up with luxury, boutique linens, and comforters and pillow that are 'allergen free'. There is a fold down futon couch in the sitting/office area upstairs. This room has a nice view to the front yard and forested area.

The kitchen can accomadate numerous cooks and visitors. It is equipped for those that love to cook and then kick back and create memories with family and friends.

***Sadly the river is closed to fishing in front of the house. When the season is open (always check, as big fish equals big fines) you can walk down the driveway and fish downriver of the bridge. Check the regulations that accompany your fishing license.

We hope your visit to our River house leaves you rejuvenated and full of wonderful memories, shared adventures, love and laughter. The Zimmermanns

                  Why the Owner Chose Leavenworth:
                  Because of the areas diversity, we own a home in the upper Icicle Valley off the grid (with alternative power), 15 minutes from our River House. We love both homes, and are not ready to give either up, so we now split our time between the upper Icicle home and Mexico, and offer our 'town' home for others to share.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Tranquility and nature, yet we're minutes from town and all it has to offer, as well as a mirad of outdoor recreational opportunities.
