Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We built our home in 2009 on property that has been in my family since the 1940's. Sadly my husband passed away the next year. After my youngest child went into the Navy I was trying to decide what to do with my home. It is way too large for me but I didn't want to sell it. Having been born and raised in Leavenworth I thought about the need for nice affordable accommodations and sharing my home seems to be a great solution. I manage the Gingerbread Factory in Leavenworth and hope you will stop in and say hi.

Why the Owner Chose Leavenworth:
This property is great for get together. Perfect for a family. Wonderful for a group of girlfriends, or a trio of couples. In the summer it is great for family reunions as there is a large yard that tents can be pitched in as well as a field that RVs can be parked in (sorry no hookups).

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We are 5 miles east of Leavenworth. Close enough to enjoy the offerings of the Bavarian Village yet far enough away to remove yourself from the crowds and relax. The Kraus House features a large fabulous kitchen but if you don't feel like cooking the Buckboard Cafe is just across the street. If you ski I am halfway between Mission Ridge and Stevens Pass.
