About the property

Cabin, 1 bdrm with King+loft with twin beds, 1 Bath, sleeps 4.

This darling romantic A frame cabin is my favorite place to be. It is so cozy and relaxing with a charm that is hard to describe. Roaring fireplace in the Winter, cooking outside on a propane or charcoal BBQ in the summer and then there is the firepit for hotdogs and s'mores!!

The river is steps from the deck and will mesmerize you with its lovely sound .It is nestled back in a quiet area of Icicle Island. Enjoy the hammock for a snooze in the summer or hiking, rock climbing, snow shoeing, river sports all with in minutes of the cabin. Newly remodeled with river views from all great room and kitchen areas. So many choices to join in the Leavenworth fun or just hang by the river with friends or family.

About Raye Marie Winters

I am a retired Kirkland Attorney/ mom who enjoys getting away to the cabin any chance I get with or without my kids. I love to read and hike while I am there. Leavenworth is minutes away so, I go in for festivals, shopping, wine tasting and people watching. It is my little slice of paradise.

Raye Marie Winters purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Raye Marie Winters chose North Central Cascades

I love the year around activities and festivals that Leavenworth offers. There is so much diversity and it's only a 2 hour drive from Kirkland.

What makes this cabin unique

I enjoy inviting family and friends to visit my magical river retreat.I also like being alone there with my thoughts. It is so relaxing ...and yet I am close to town when the urge strikes.

Beautiful Cabin on River

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for Thanksgiving, and I fell in love with the place. I can hardly wait to go back again! If your idea of relaxing is a cabin in the mountains on a river, this is the place!

During the heatwave on 2015

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Raye's cabin. She is most accommodating and wonderful to work with. Temperatures got as high as 109 that week. Raye had just installed an air conditioner anticipating the heatwave. Usually this cabin can stay cool enough on its own during normal summers as its well shaded and near a streaming river. The air conditioning saved our trip and we do so appreciate Raye looking out for us.

I've booked our third stay for this Spring. I can't wait to enjoy Mayfest festivities. Our first stay was my first Ocktoberfest ever (as I'm not a beer drinker). It was a lot of fun to see people dressed up in their alpine clothes and be jubilant. I even learned how to do the Chicken Dance.

Raye's cabin offers a quiet serine place to relax and the convenience of being so close to town when you want shopping, dinning, or a night out at a club.

Perfect Getaway from the City !

  • 5 of 5

Decided to take my wife and our two teenage daughters (19 & 16) out of Seattle to breathe some fresh mountain air for a couple of nights.

This was the perfect place to get away from it all.

The cabin was indeed a romantic rustic cabin, but had everything needed.

It sits right on the Icicle River and has plenty of outdoor space to kick back and listen to the river and what nature has for us.

Inside the cabin, it felt like being in a cabin....had a loft up above with two single beds, one bedroom, and a single bathroom with a shower. Since I have teenage daughters, I warned them that the hot water tank is 10 gallons, not 90 gallons. hahaha

We decided to float the Wenatchee River on tubes and that was awesome !

We did this adventure through the Leavenworth Outdoor Center located in downtown Leavenworth.

It's so fun that we have a Bavarian Village 2.5 hours from Seattle...and it does feel like you've left the country !

Raye was very helpful owner and answered any questions that I had before our trip.

I would highly recommend staying here instead of a hotel.

It made the overall experience something we will never forget.

Thank you Raye !

Perfect place to relax, and we loved Leavenworth

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is absolutely charming. We stayed during Oktoberfest and the location was just perfect. Five miles from town so if you want to be in the thick of events, or shopping, or dining it’s all right there! What we enjoyed the most is being able to leave town and in just a few minutes feel like you’re in the great outdoors… and you are!

The cabin is fully stocked of any cooking utensils and dinning wear you would need. The cabin was very clean as well. It’s a nice location with lots of privacy.

Thank you, Raye, for sharing your cabin with us and we want to return this spring!

Relaxing long weekend

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came to Leavenworth for a long weekend and Raye's cabin ended up being the PERFECT place for us to sit back, relax, and just enjoy each other. The cabin was beautiful inside and out. Raye had everything we could have possibly needed. We felt right at home and so did our dogs. We may have enjoyed Raye's cabin more than the actual town itself. We will definitely be staying here again on our next trips to Leavenworth!

Cozy and romantic weekend get-away

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and well maintained. Everything was in order and exceeded expectations.

Location could not be better - very close to Leavenworth off the icicle road next to Icicle creek, the beautiful 5 minute walk to the Alpine Lakes/Enchantments trail. Thank you for a cozy and romantic weekend get-away.
