Overview

About the property

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-8)

The Alpen Chalet is a peaceful and intimate lodging experience in lovely Leavenworth. The Townhouse is great for larger groups seeking a quiet, spacious place for a special occasion or just a relaxing getaway.

Only 1 mile from downtown, the Chalet is on the 17th fairway of the Leavenworth Golf Course, nestled in tall pines with beautiful scenery in every direction — and no downtown noise.

The Alpen Chalet is ideal for winter recreation. With cross-country skiing available on the golf course, and just down the road at the Icicle River Trail there is no limit to outdoor activities and winter fun. We can provide you with information on all of the many year-round recreational opportunities and also assist with equipment rentals.

At Alpen Chalet, our priority is to provide a quiet, peaceful environment for our guests. Quiet hours are kept.

About Norm McCue

We enjoy meeting people and we enjoy travel so having our own vacation place in Leavenworth that we can share with others was a dream come true.

Norm McCue purchased this townhome in 1996

Why Norm McCue chose North Central Cascades

In 1996 we built The Alpen Chalet in Leavenworth because it is a spectacular vacation destination and it's close to our home in Bellevue, WA. It is a beautiful and scenic drive any time of the year. The mountain environment is so calming and relaxing, it was a perfect fit for us. To have a place to go to and escape the busy city life. It is also fun to watch the deer pass through the golf course while we are having our breakfast, or late afternoon coffee.

What makes this townhome unique

The Enchantment Mountains are just spectacular during any season. And Leavenworth has so many restaurants, that a quiet meal in the midst of the fabulous Cascade Mountains is one of our favorite things to do. We also love the seasonal events held in town. Festivals are held monthly throughout the year.

Clean and peaceful, terrific location.

  • 4 of 5

Overall we enjoyed our stay at this peaceful location and its close proximity to Leavenworth - the home is lovely, spacious, and clean. We watched some dear from the patio and hiked Icicle Ridge from the trailhead just down the road. The owner was also a pleasure to work with.

One disappointment was to be informed by a (friendly) neighbor that the Jacuzzi was off-limits to accommodate their own renters, and also that the grill was not working. These were two amenities that we had very much looked forward to (we had even planned our meals around the BBQ and already shopped before learning it was unusable), so that's unfortunate. Also found it a bit odd that there was not hand/body soap in every shower/sink (even motels provide soap?). We would agree with another guest here who commented that the mattresses are quite firm, too.

Otherwise the kitchen was nicely supplied with cooking utensils, etc. which was very convenient, and the home has air conditioning which will be a godsend for Seattle travelers not used to the heat.

So pack every personal necessity you might need, play 'Goldilocks' to find the mattress that suits you best, wait to plan your meals according to the facilities in working order (or not) when you arrive, and you'll be all set for a wonderful stay here!

Birthday Celebrations

  • 4 of 5

Good location for all activities. Walk into town was about 25 minutes. About 30 minutes driving in good conditions to Steven's.

Very spacious and the area is pretty quiet. We had a family of raccoons and some deer visit the porch.

We had 4 couples come for the weekend. There is a small lack of seating for that many people but we made due with the floor in front of the fireplace for games. Don't count on tv (you're on vacation anyway). The beds are VERY firm. Most members of the party found sleeping on them difficult, with one moving to the couch on one night.

It was always nice and warm when coming back from the cold.

It was a really good weekend spent with good friends. The owner is very responsive and a pleasure to work with. The first night we did have a run in with the neighbor lady that wasn't a good time, but Norm worked it out for us.

A strange thing: the house has ladybugs? It's not a nuisance but weird.

Very clean!

  • 5 of 5

Norm was very helpful with any questions we had. The property was very clean and we very much appreciated the care taken into making our stay comfortable. For example, when we arrived we were greeted by Norm and all the lights were on for us in the Chalet. Very close location to down town Leavenworth. Lots of room in the Chalet. We also liked the entrance code feature so that way we didn't have to worry about using a key.

Unproffecional and not worth the money.

  • 1 of 5

Grille was not working, Snow on the deck was about 30 inches no one even bothered to clean it or make a way to the grille which was not working. And hot tub you have to share it with the neighbors which living there on the property and always knocking on your door and reminding you about how to stay quite and not to go there not to to this and that.

Long story make it short it was not what we expected and how it was presented or described. Definitely not a prime destination.

Owner's Response: It is unfortunate that Art R. had a stay at the Alpen Chalet that did not meet his expectation. Our experience as owners with his stay was very disappointing as well. Our experience was being called at 2:00 AM concerning a noise disturbance on the first night of his stay and on the second night, the local sheriff was called for noise disturbance. This is only the second event since 1996 that the Sheriff had to be contacted for unruly noisy guests. After checking out, the cleaning staff called for additional help to clean up the extensively soiled condition of the unit. Furthermore, some of our personal property was damaged beyond repair. We do encourage quiet enjoyment for our guests of what Leavenworth and the Alpen Chalet have to offer. However, one guest’s enjoyment is not at the expense of other guest’s quiet enjoyment. We clearly note the expectations of behavior in the Rental Agreement and the Rules, Regulations and Instructions given to guests prior to their checking in.

Close to town and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I recently had the pleasure of working with Norm to surprise my husband for a brithday getaway. Norm was vry responsive and easy to work with. We arrived at the townhome and were happy to see how close it was to town. The property also backs the golf course...we were hoping to do some cross country skiing on the course but at the time the course did not have enough snow to open. Not a problem as just down the road was a large nordic ski area. The house was comfortable and very spacious. We did not use the hot tub but there is one available and the master bath had a jacuzzi tub as well. The kitchen was well equiped although we only used to make coffee in the morning. We chose to eat out most meals since we were on vacation. There is gas BBQ on the deck. the weekend we were there we got tons of snow and it was gorgeous! This town home can easily sleep a large family as it has two bedrooms on the main level and a futon and a double bed up in the loft....the couch on the main level also is a sleeper sofa...

All in all we enjoyed our time and really enjoyed working with Norm.
