Property description

A beautiful rustic log lodge in a secluded canyon just minutes to the Bavarian Village of Leavenworth, Washington. Your haven...A peaceful refuge from the usual hustle and bustle of the day. Our lodge is naturally comfortable, inviting and beautiful - a world away from basic - add some whimsy in a way too serious world. It is your place to take a few deep breaths and finally, finally relax. That perfect something extra; just exactly what you've been needing. Casual days full of fun, family and friends. Make our gorgeous lodge your vacation destination.

Leavenworth Mountain Lodge is a lovely welcoming home, ideal for family vacations, reunions, intimate weddings, and retreats in the Leavenworth area. In every direction are breathtaking scenes of mountains, and the views down the canyon. The home has three deck/patio areas that are great for viewing wildlife and just for relaxing with a barbeque cook-out as you enjoy the scenery.

There are two very comfortable living spaces - a spacious living and dining area with a cozy 2-story river rock fireplace, and a gathering/game room set up for tv or movie watching & a game table.

The modern kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need: pots & pans, bakeware, 2 microwaves, cook top with a double oven, trash compactor, ice maker, bowls, dishes, dinner service for 18, tea, coffee & spices. A huge, gorgeous dining table creates a marvelous gathering space for family and friends with more seating around the kitchen island.

Our mountain lodge is situated in the very heart of recreational heaven. In just about 10 minutes you can be down in the village of Leavenworth enjoying the activities or fishing, floating the river or swimming at barn beach.

Here you are ideally located for outdoor adventures - an easy drive to, Mission Ridge for down hill skiing or Lake Wenatchee recreational area with its fishing at fish lake, hiking, waterfalls, fabulous wildlife viewing and my personal favorite snowmobiling & cross country skiing. Other activities in the valley include whitewater rafting, horse back riding, rock climbing, art galleries, rodeos in July & Labor Day, outdoor theater, festivals including our famous Christmas Tree Lighting and of course shopping in Leavenworth! This is your recreational destination 365 days a year.

Sleeping accomodations: the lodge has 3 bedrooms on the main floor - 1 king bed & 3 queen size beds. The 3 bathrooms on the main floor provides plenty of room for everyone to get ready in the morning. There is a total of 6 bathroom sinks and 4 toilets in the Lodge. There is 2 loungers in the great room the fold out to single beds that face the 2-story fireplace. The master bed and bath with sit down shower is located upstairs. This your chance to sleep on a beautiful cedar log bed with a view of the stars. There is a lounger in the rec room upstairs that pulls out to a queen bed along with two sets of rustic bunk beds.

This amazing lodge has sleeping for 18 with a 2 story river rock fireplace in the great room. The kitchen area is a favorite for everyone to gather around the huge island. There is a 8 person private hot tub that includes a waterfall and mood lights. There is a gazebo that surrounds the hot tub that makes it easy to unwind in while enjoying the beautiful scenery and stars.

Shopping: In the nearby Village of Leavenworth you'll find 2 grocery stores, banks, post office, gas stations, restaurants, art galleries and gift stores to keep you very busy.

We look forward to welcoming you to Leavenworth and our beautiful mountain retreat. It is a place to nap with complete abandon and take in the sunset with someone wonderful. You could even do absolutely nothing at all - just relax - you definately deserve it. We have created a place to make your vacation something special you will remember for many years to come.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Our family started coming to the Leavenworth area in 1985. We have grandchildren now and it is fun to see them enjoying the area. There is something to say about 300 days of sunshine, the crystal blue skies and the fresh mountain air to make life a little bit better.

Why the Owner Chose Leavenworth:
This location is perfect - 10 minutes to Leavenworth for all of the fun but you can come back to the lodge and escape to complete peace & quiet . We have created a sanctuary in the mountains that is inspired by nature. The lodge is naturally comfortable, inviting and beautiful. It is a personal expression of who we are and the things that we value in life. A place to enjoy nature and God's handiwork.
