About Smit & Trae
In 2015 we moved to Washington from Northern California to be closer to our grandchildren. We live in Woodinville in a old Farmhouse on a one acre parcel with our Golden Retreiver, Bailey. We have a stand alone studio that has been on Airbnb since 2015 and we are considered Super Hosts. We enjoy providing the small details that make a guests stay memorable and special. We are looking forward to doing the same for the River's Edge!
Smit & Trae purchased this Cabin in 2018
Why Smit & Trae chose Leavenworth
It has long been a dream of ours to own a vacation home in the mountains. The Rivers Edge met every requirement on our list! Walk to the water, room for a large family, rustic old world charm, close to a town for necessities but private and secluded. Built in the 1960's, the River's Edge has the old cabin charm but has also been updated in the kitchen and bathrooms! With wide open windows to view the beautiful Wenatchee river while cooking in the large kitchen or relaxing in the living room, the beauty of the surrounding landscape is all around you. Bald eagles, geese and mallard couples roam the waters right outside the back porch. Come and experience the magic of the River's Edge.
What makes this Cabin unique
From the back porch, you can walk down to the river! There are two beaches right in front of the cabin. A wide river rocked beach is available mostly year around, with the exception of early spring, when the snow melt raises the level of the river. There is a secret little beach that presents itself in late July, as the river recedes and is all sand, no rocks and a great place for young kids to play in the water. Wide picture windows bring the river view inside the house. The large screened porch with ping pong table and dining table and chairs, makes a perfect family gathering spot for games, happy hour, or simply enjoying the sounds of the river. Each bedroom holds a King bed, adding a good nights sleep to your agenda. After a long day of skiing or relaxing by the river, the hot tub, large enough for 6-8 people, provides it's own piece of heaven.

Annual Fun Family Vacation
The house is lovely located on a great riverfront property. There was plenty of space for everybody to spread out if they wanted but the house is laid out in a way that everyone could be comfortable in the same room, also. There was a table large enough to accommodate our party of 10 which was great for sharing meals together. The kitchen is well appointed with the necessities for cooking meals and plenty of dinnerware so you don't have to do the dishes before someone can eat again.
The property is about 30 minutes north of Leavenworth and just a few minutes from Plain, which has a small hardware/gift store and a small grocery store for any essentials you may have forgotten. The property has plenty of outdoor seating on the deck, patio, and around the fire pit that overlooks the river. The river is beautifully clear and relatively shallow but has a good current. A group of us floated from the house down river to the bridge in Plain, it took about an hour and was kind of fast/rough in some places (including the takeout by the bridge) so some people may not be comfortable with their small children doing it although we saw plenty of kids going by in rafts and tubes. There is a much calmer section of river in Leavenworth where companies run tubing shuttles which may be better for little kids, or those less comfortable with water.
The owners were readily available and quick to respond to emails with questions or concerns and they have their numbers posted at the house as well in case there are issues that come up. There is construction going on at the property next door, it looks like they are just getting started with building a home, so there might be some construction noise during the week but it was hardly noticeable to us and didn't detract from our experience. I would stay here again without question.
Great property! Absolutely perfect
We rented this for a family gathering and had a great time. Very private, yard and patio were wonderful, even closer access to the river than we had expected. Loved it!
Great family weekend
We had a family get together at this beautiful cabin, and everything was perfect. Peaceful. The fire pit area was great, the kids and adults enjoyed the ping pong table and corn hole! Beautiful cabin with everything you could think of and more! Icing on the cake was falling asleep to the sounds of the river. Definitely will be back.
Beautiful and comfortable. The perfect family vacation!
