About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 3.25 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Located near Plain and Lake Wenatchee, the cabin is located 5 miles from Lake Wenatchee. Close to state cross-country skiing trails and snowshoeing. A small grocery store is located about 5 miles away in Plain and another 5 miles away on highway near the Lake. There is parking for a motor home on site.

House is a brand new house of about 3000 s.f. with a main floor with master bath and jetted tub and walk in closet. Kitchen, dining and living rooms with TV (wired for DVD) on main floor with two bedrooms and den on second floor. Basement is finished and has air hockey. We have sleds available for winter recreation.

Views from the wraparound deck and main floor which have many windows, are to the east and morning sunrise. Changing colors of trees in fall are a site to behold; in winter, view of the mountain and snow covered trees are breathtaking.

About The Owner

We bought the property to snowmobile and store the snowmobiles. Instead, we fell in love with the area and enjoy the summer weekends just as much. In fall, we enjoy the leaves changing. We both work in Western Washington and enjoy the weekends in Eastern Washington. Frequently, we have friends and families use the cabin for recreation. We have also used weekends in the house as fundraisers for non-profits at auctions.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose North Central Cascades

We bought a weekend retreat we live in next door; we loved the idea of getting away and enjoying the time away from Western Washington. Ted is an avid snow machiner. We built the vacation rental to sell as a house but the market crashed and we just added vacation rental to help pay expenses.

What makes this house unique

Sledding, snowmachining, Lake Wenatchee, relaxing, listening to the river in summer, view is breathtaking.

Great get away and perfect place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

The BIGHOUSE was very clean and well maintained. Great downstairs area for the kids to play and keep themselves entertained, including air hockey and pool tables, tv and DVD player. The kitchen area was pretty well stocked and had almost all utensils, cookware, griddles and such. All we needed was the foods we wanted to eat for our weekend. The rooms were fairly large and the master bedroom had a master bath complete with jetted tub. The only thing missing from what was listed was the gas fire place was disconnected due to previous vacationers messing with the fireplace when asked not to. Not a huge deal as the house was plenty warm with regular furnace/forced air.

Honestly a great place to stay. Close enough to Leavenworth to be fairly convenient and avoid the mob of people descending on Leavenworth around Christmas time. Would definitely recommend it to anyone wondering about it.

Huge house with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

The house was much larger than we expected, very clean, and well stocked. It's also about 30 minutes from Leavenworth, which is perfect for day excursions. The amenities in the house, jet tub, pool, air hockey, wifi, and cable were all great too.

Definitely a great place to stay!

This was an amazing house, larger than I expected. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook, there were more than enough beds for everyone, pool table was nice as well as air hockey table. Owner responded very quickly to any questions that I had regarding the stay and everything went smoothly. It was a great weekend in a beautiful home.

Awesome Experience at The Big House

  • 5 of 5

The house was incredible.... pictures do not do it justice. We spent the weekend looking for a relaxing get away and that is exactly what we got. Kids loved the play room downstairs as well as the room with the bunk beds. One night we all slept downstairs, the other night we slept in the other bedrooms. Plenty of room for everyone. The wife and I have already discussed coming back with a group of friends for a couples trip. The owner was very helpful and responded to emails quickly while we were out there. I would highly reccommend this house.

Wonderful home in the woods.

  • 4 of 5

We had an awesome time at the "Bighouse" last weekend. We are a family of 6 and had plenty of room and more than enough beds for everyone to have their own beds ( plus a couple left over ). The house was clean and well stocked with cleaning supplies, garbage bags, towels, sheets etc... even BBQ briquettes and lighter fluid for the BBQ. The Wifi and TV dish system worked great. We played games, pool, air hockey, board games etc... and spent time watching movies by the gas stove. All appliances worked as they should and the directions and entry code information were accurate. I only gave it 4 stars due to there being some stink bugs in the house, on the walls and ceiling in several rooms. Not "infested" but enough to creep my girls out a bit. We found a small wet vac in the garage and used that to suck up the bugs that we could reach before going to bed. There were several that we couldn't reach that were on the high ceilings in the main level living room.... so they stayed there. I understand that this type of bug is common for the area and it wasn't a big deal for us. Otherwise the house was perfect for a family get-a-way and would recommend it.
