Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family had an absolutely wonderful week at Heaven Can Wait. The house...actually it felt totally like the "home" it is...was about perfect for us. Our gang likes to kinda hang out and that was perfect. Ditto we really enjoy joining forces in the kitchen and HCW's was equipped with an unbelievable array of kitchen things. Last but not least a big thank you for your patience in providing all the info I requested along the way.

This is a beautiful lodge surrounded by wilderness, not neighboring cabins.

Owner takes great care in this facility as it is highly organized, uncluttered and clean.

McIntosh Madness - Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We have 17 total with 3 toddlers ... it was fabulous - the men had such a great time playing in the game room. The hot tub and sauna were a huge hit! Rooms were fabulous ... and the kitchen! WOW .. We are ready to return in the summer to enjoy the grounds and all the activities!

Shannon was so responsive during the whole planning process and follow-up.

Best place for a large group

  • 5 of 5

Spend the most wonderful weekend at the lodge. Views from the lodge are breathtaking.

Plenty of room for everyone - we were a group of 5 families , including adults, young adults and pre teens. Kids had a nice time in the game room and grounds. We adults enjoyed the kitchen and family room. Really impressed with the kitchen - perfect for cooking for large groups - plenty of room & supplies for all the cooks in the group.

This was our 3rd stay at this lodge. We surely will be back again.

Large family vacation

  • 4 of 5

Two grandparents, four married children, fifteen grandchildren ages 15 years to two months for a total of 25!. The dorms were great for the kids, each couple had their own headroom. Swam a lot, white water rafting, shopping season Leavenworth and a trip to Rocky Reach Dam. We had a great time and the house worked well.

A little gem nestled in the woods

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lodge for a group to attend Oktoberfest 2014 in Leavenworth. The spacious accommodations with riverfront views were a welcome addition to our weekend. The amenities here cannot be matched. Foosball, pool, hot tub, sauna, billiards table… The list goes on. I would highly recommend this home for any traveler.

Great family reunion site

  • 5 of 5

Twenty four of us from Louisville, LA and WA stayed for 3 days in early August 2014. 12 kids from 5-16 and 12 adults up to 75. My wife and I had planned this over the previous year and thought we had this placed totally cased. We were wrong! It easily exceeded very high expectations. All the things in the bio are true, but how do you measure convenience and fun? A highlight was the 2-3 hr. float from LK. Wenatchee to the property after a 20 min drive. Young kids loved the log cabin and of course the pool and hot tub. Our Cal. contingent played tennis. Cooking for and eating with groups of 24 was no problem. The facility easily accommodates large meals; it is only the family coordination that is required. We spent a few hours in Leavenworth on our way out, but this place is an end all to itself. We may have to consider Winter....Kurt
