About the property

Cabin with large loft, game room, outdoor fire pit (Easily Sleeps 6)

This cabin has a bright open feel to it and a ton of character. A full kitchen with a bar opens out to dining area and front room. Mountain views from living room, large front deck, and the loft are spectacular. The basement area is an additional 700 sq feet with pool table, foosball, ping pong and darts. Bikes and Sleds are hung up and available for use.

The woodstove churns out the perfect heat to sit inside and play games and watch movies by the fire. The community is a loop where neighbors and other weekenders meander by and kids play free.

Sitting at the foot of a big hill, it is ideal for sledding in the winter. We are located in the Valley Hi community about 10 minutes out of Leavenworth. This is the perfect distance to be able to run into town for the festivities, or wine tasting but also escape the crowds of the town for tranquility, relaxation, BBQ and time with family.

Why Mark Lucas chose Peshastin

This has been our family cabin for over 30 years. We grew coming to this cabin as kids. Now our kids get to grow up coming here too.

What makes this chalet unique

Neighbors are friendly and love to stop and talk. Ask them about our resident elk and venture out early in the morning to look for him.

The community is in a small bowl where today's fast paced living is devoid and there is time to gaze at the amazing views that surround you.

Perfect for Oktoberfest

  • 5 of 5

Had a group of friends come for Oktoberfest in town. It was easy for the shuttle service to come pick us up, and also nice to have the park out front to enjoy in the down time & sunny fall weather. Not having a dishwasher wasn't a problem, since there were plenty of extra dishes and the kitchen was very well stocked. The only small problem we came across was the leaf that was supposed to fit into the dinner table was too large and didn't fit. However, we still managed fine without it. I would definitely stay here again!

Amazing, Felt like Home!

  • 5 of 5

The Lucas Family was very easy to communicate with. This home feels like a "home", very comfortable, great views. We got to enjoy swimming in the private pond, the little ones got to go fishing in the pond, walk along the creek, and see a family of about 10 to15 wild Turkeys come through the yard! Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your home! We will definitely be back!

great weekend away

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our weekend here. The house is so clean and comfortable, it was really nice to walk into this place and feel instant comfort. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need. We planned on a fun snow weekend but the rain got in our way, yet still got some snowshoeing in. We rented them in leavenworth and went to a cool logging road in Pashastin, I wanted to go to the trail closer to the house but the friends with us are new to snowshoeing. We really enjoyed the movies, the selection is full of comedy, we brought our own movies and never watched our own. We had no problems with the house, the owners respond to emails fast always with a friendly response. I would recommend this house to everyone.

Excellent time at a fantastic cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time over Christmas at the cabin. It's incredibly warm, cozy, and inviting. Its a little further from town than I expected, but the scenery more than makes up for it (the drive isn't that bad either). It's very inviting and you can tell you're really welcome with the effort put into it to make you feel at home. My family loved it and we all had a great time. We would definitely stay here again, thank you for the experience :)

Directly across the street is a community lake with picnic areas, wide open fields and playsets. Kids can catch frogs in the pond and play all day within sight of the front deck of the cabin. In winter there are tons of small hills within the loop area where you can sled and play in the snow.
