About Chris Olsen

I first came to the Lake Wenatchee area over 20 years ago to camp and mountain bike and I still love this area. Now with kids and their cousins, we built this place to comfortably handle a large group gathering.

Chris Olsen purchased this house in 2009

Why Chris Olsen chose Leavenworth

This area is only about a 2 hour drive from Seattle so it's easy to get to. The kids love exploring the woods and the creek on the property as well as making s'mores by an evening fire. The grandparents love relaxing and enjoying the views from almost every room in the house. Leavenworth shops and public pool are not far away.

What makes this house unique

Large gathering space with a large kitchen allows big groups to gather and dine together with plenty of space for everyone. The quiet, wooded setting is beautiful and relaxing. You can start a hike to Hidden Lake from the door of the cabin and enjoy a nice 4 mile walk and hike without getting in your car.

Amazing house with a beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We had a pre-wedding get away with our bridal party and absolutely loved the house. It was much roomier than expected and we all fit very comfortably. Everything was nice and clean and we had everything we could possibly need. The house has a great view of the lake but is still incredibly private. It is also very close to the park which made finding things to do very easy. Chris was very responsive and made planning our trip an absolute pleasure. I can't wait to plan another trip at this gorgeous home!

Lots of space in the house with good size rooms.

  • 4 of 5

Liked the large house with a well equipped kitchen. The large deck was a comfortable place to be as there was always a sunny and shady part of the deck. Lots of games, books and enjoyed playing ping pong in the large basement room. The deck had a good view of the lake and Dirty Mt. The access was a challenge for front drive only cars, solution was to back up the steep part. Needed to drive every time we left the house for any destination. Good central air and didn't have to adjust.

Paradise in the woods

  • 5 of 5

An incredible cabin overlooking Lake Wenatchee and Dirty Face Peak. This place was perfect for our large group as there were many bedrooms and places to sleep, a huge kitchen stocked with every appliance you could need, and countless activities in and around the home. Would definitely book again!

Fantastic view with amazing amenities

  • 5 of 5

All the other reviews were accurate, the house has amazing views and is fully stocked with everything we ever could have needed. The house-wide speaker system was a great touch that I didn't even know I wanted. Possibly best of all was the responsiveness and helpfulness of the owner. He responded within a few hours for each of my questions and gave great suggestions for things to do around the area and things to do at the house. We will definitely look at staying here again!
