Beautiful, luxurious private resort style home situated a mere mile or so from the heart of downtown Leavenworth. Beautiful brand new swimming pool, new hot tub, new sand volleyball court, basketball hoop in driveway, outdoor fire pit in back yard, patio with grill, fireplace and waterfall style pond and spectacular views. Excellent hiking trail (Icicle Creek trailhead) virtually right across the street. Two gas indoor fireplaces and one electric fireplace.

Furnished to perfection and ready to accommodate medium sized parties of 10-14. This is really two houses separated by a breezeway, one side has 2 bedrooms and a fold out couch, dining, living, bathroom and kitchen. The other side has a large private suite with a King bed and a private bathroom with a jetted tub and a second bedroom, living room, dining room and kitchen as well.

The pictures really speak for themselves and I will add that I've been looking to add a second property for a great number of years and have finally settled on this one for it's proximity to town, coziness, rural setting and central location to everything. I've invested nearly 200k in this property in the last 10 months alone as it's my desire to make this THE nicest vacation rental in all of Leavenworth, WA.

To show the many great details of the home the cameraman used a wide angle lens which can make the rooms look larger than they are. That said it's for detail only and letting you know for full disclosure.

If you've ever stayed at or heard of 'The Cabin at Eagle Creek' (VRBO 192335 ) then you will come to understand the guest experience that you can expect at 'The Chalet at Icicle Creek. We go the extra mile for our guests and this is proven out by our stream of 5 star reviews at the Cabin at Eagle Creek that stretch out over the past 7 years.

Cancellation Policy: Cancellations received 6 months prior to booking will receive a full refund, cancellations received after 6 months but prior to 3 months will receive a one year credit to use the funds, cancellations made within three months of your reservation will not receive a refund. Please book this property with those stipulations in mind.

*** Important note regarding cancellations. We strive to never have to cancel a reservation on someone. We know what it is like to book a trip and to be excited about that trip and how difficult it is to herd all the cats together to go on a trip. We would never want to cancel your reservation just prior to your stay or even months prior to your stay. We know that Leavenworth fills up at critical times of the year and that rebooking your trip might not even be possible in those cases. Therefore we ask that before you press the button to book this trip that you are absolutely sure that you can make the trip. Cancellations are very challenging for us as we have just two pieces of inventory. Getting them rebooked is not as easy as you would think.

Therefore cancellations made prior to the 6 month period will be charged a fee of $150.00 for rebooking.

We typically do not have cancellations after the 6 month mark and we will look at each request on a case by case basis but cancellations after the 6 month mark, if honored (which is again rare), will be charged a $300.00 rebooking fee.

Just like with the airlines this is a nonrefundable ticket after a certain amount of time has passed. Just as the airline reserves you a seat which doesn't allow others to book it is the same thing with these properties. So please book your stay with that conscientiousness in mind. We thank you so much!

About kelly kortman, owner

This is my second foray into the vacation rental business and I hope to bring all of my experience into making this property as successful or even Moreso successful than my first. I'm a financial adviser for a super regional bank in Kirkland, WA and a published author having written a book about my experiences running the first property. In my spare time I root for the Seahawks, do cross fit and yoga and am still trying to find Ms. right.

kelly kortman, owner purchased this chalet in 2014

Why kelly kortman, owner chose North Central Cascades

This property is extremely charming and in an excellent central location. There is room on the property for a swimming pool which I hope to add in the spring. There are two units on the property and they can be rented together or separately. Many charming touches throughout the property make it unique and special. Very excited to make this a part of my collection.

What makes this chalet unique

Almost walking distance to town for those who do not like to drink and drive and enjoy a several mile hike. Near to all the hiking trails and water activities of the Icicle Creek and Sleeping Lady area. A beautiful spot to merely lounge around and walking distance to swimming and tube launching in the river nearby. Must be experienced to truly understand how nice this place is.

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at Icicle Chalet in July for a fun 4 day get away.

We loved the spaces indoor and out that was inviting, charming and comfortable. We quickly fell in love with the place and enjoyed the memories we've made.

The place was everything and more that the description gave, all the ammenities needed for fun meals and fun on the property.

We didn't know quite how to get the place locked when we needed to leave and so I texted the owner who replied super quick right after we figured out what we did wrong.

The pool was maintained as was the hot tub and the yard was kept watered. Just a lovely place, we even played volley ball as a family spur of the moment.

Would stay again and recommend it to anyone.

Not what i expected

  • 1 of 5

I want to write that my family was very excited for this trip it was my mothers 60th bday. We looked at many options and after the reviews this place appeared to be just what we needed and wanted. We were VERY disappointed!

Here are some things we wish we knew before.

1. The heat in the guest house bedroom downstairs hardly worked it was freezing the whole time

2. the trash can is small there is no onsite recycling and if you go over you pay more to have it taken away or have to do it yourself.

3. they expect you start a load of towels before you go . . . i have stayed many places and never been expected to do this

4. the electrical work is not sufficient for the home on the main side. When we got there we were running heaters, and lights, and the stove when we turned on the microwave off went the power. I dont know about you but i can do all these things at home just fine. We searched and searched for the breaker box and finally had to call to be told that no we couldnt run this much at the same time and that the 2nd breaker box was hidden behind a picture in the downstairs bedroom in the main house (very hard to find in the dark). We spent the rest of the trip feeling like we hard to turn off lights to use the microwave.

5. inside the main house on a board posted near the kitchen is a list of 12 or 13 rules not listed on the site (ie the trash situation) it also states please only use the fireplaces when you are sitting looking at them the tank is small. For the money we paid to stay this should not be a factor especially with how cold the house was.

6. the photos dont give an accurate understanding of the homes layout. In the main house bedroom down there are 2 doors. please understand that if you want to get in the main house from guest house you must either walk through this persons room or go outside. In addition the bathroom situation for the guest house down must either go through the guest house upstairs bedroom or walk through the main house down stairs bedroom or go outside to come in the main door this can be tricky in the middle of the night especially with small children.

7. in addition i saw cobwebs in many spots

8. there was no dishwasher soap

9. the towels and washrags all seem to have a mildew smell - i assume from guest being asked to start the wash and just sitting until someone comes to put them in the dryer.

Overall i dont believe the price is worth it on this rental and if we go again I will be looking for another place to stay!

Owner's Response: These concerns and misunderstandings were addressed and this review is being removed by the guest. The hottub is open in the winter. The electrical panel can handle a very high load but cannot handle when every thing in the house is all turned on at once. We have two huge cans in a shed that were not found by the guests. We have purchased space heaters for extra heat. We have extra blankets in a cubby in our library. We merely ask guests to conserve fossil fuels with our fireplace. We've had guests run the fireplace with the doors open to create ambiance and not be too hot, we asked people to be cognizant of that. We don't tell people to run a load of towels we ask them to. We've since softened our language further. We had cleaners do an all up dust bunny and cobweb search. Cleans in December can get challenging due to back to back to back cleans. Our cleaners got caught up on all the tiny essentials. We've had nothing but 4 and 5 star reviews prior. This was just a bad set of circumstances. If guests call us we act promptly to their needs. If we don't know what's wrong we can't fix it. Thanks for reading, this should be gone soon anyway. :)

Not what we expected

  • 2 of 5

Things that surprised us!

1. the first floor bedroom is the walk-through!!! meaning that everyone uses this entrance to get to the main kitchen. This did not work well for our family at all.

2.Cobwebs on the light fixtures and it was generally not as clean as one would think.

3. Advertisement says hot-tub, great ! however, the rules in the house say you can't use it in the winter!

4. Make sure to bring extra blankets as the bedroom on the first floor in the adjoining home has no heater ! The one close by shuts off often and it is never warm in there. Besides the fact all other beds have down/alternative comforters the double bed does not.

5.There are no extra sheets or pillow cases either.One towel per person .

6. There was no dish washing soap, we had to go and buy some. Make sure to bring some if you stay.

7. I expected to have hotel size soap, shampoo and cream rinse for the price we paid. Again make sure to bring some if you decided to stay here. also, there was not a hair dryer.

8. My family and I have stayed at a mired of hotels, hostels and rental homes world wide: Europe, Asia, South America, and third world countries, so we are seasoned travelers we thought we knew what to take with us, What a shock that basic items were not available in this home.

9. They want you to wash the towels, but there is no laundry detergent either.

10. You cannot run heaters, lights, microwave and the stove together it blows the electrical circuit .

11. There is limit on the amount of garbage you are allowed. I am sure that is fine if you have a few people, we had little ones and several adults.

12. They ask you not to use the gas fireplaces very much.

It was convient to get to Levenworth. I will choose differently in the future.

Beautiful setting and home!

We just spent 3 days at this beautiful property! We found it to be the perfect summer time setting! Loved all of the outdoor features from the pool, volleyball court, basketball hoop, seating area and fire pit area. All details were well thought out!

Gorgeous Property and Fantastic Rentor

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfect for every occasion. The Chalet is beautifully decorated and perfectly located for a cozy stay. Whether traveling with family or friends, there is something for all to do at the Icicle Chalet, between the pool, volleyball court, convenient outdoor patio equipped for BBQs. Additional notes: 1) the property was extremely clean; 2) backyard views are incredible; 3) beds are comfortable. Five stars to this property!

Leavenworth is a great little town that has activities all year long. The biggest of which is the second largest October-fest in the world and the Christmas Lighting Festival. Throughout the year you will find that Leavenworth hosts a variety of events to include running events, cycling events, wine tasting and a host of other activities. Leavenworth experiences all four seasons, is much warmer and dryer than Seattle itself and has gorgeous mountain views that rival the best scenery from the Sound of Music.
