About the property

*Free weekday 2017 - if you book two or more nights during the week. Free half-day during the week even if you are booking a weekend stay. We ask that booking take place same day as inquiry. Minor exclusions apply (holiday weekends, festival weekends, etc.) We understand that with VRBO's new service fee that these stays have become a bit more expensive. This is our way of helping to make things a little bit easier for you.

If this property is booked please check out my other property #192335, it's very nice as well, smaller but with even better views if that can be possible!

List of several promotions (some may not be combined):

To book this promotion send me an inquiry for the two nights with a message about which third weekday night you wish to have for free. I will manually add it to the calendar at no charge.

*Teachers, Fire, Police, Military receive a 2.5% discount. (Unless you've take the free night option.)

*An additional 2.5% discount may be applied for bookings made same day as inquiry. (Unless you've taken the free night option.)

All agreed upon discounts are null and void 24 hours after inquiry if not booked unless otherwise agreed upon or a new timeframe is established.

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.

Side note on bedrooms to avoid confusion: There are four bedrooms. One is a loft bedroom with a Queen bedf in the main house. The bedroom downstairs has a queen bed and does lead to the breezeway which is one way that you can get to the other side of the house (the other side of the house is easily attained by walking out the front door and into the breezeway door (about twenty steps) if people are still sleeping, it's typically the last bedroom used and it's usually the space used by the earliest riser) The other bedroom on the other side has a queen bed and a pull out trundle bed in it. The final bedroom was once the former B and B which has a King bed, feaux fireplace, kitchenette and jetted tub, it's quite plush and very private.)

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.

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.

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.

Beautiful home, and property. Quiet surroundings.

  • 4 of 5

The bathroom situation is a bit difficult when there are 14 people staying there. some bedding was missing and the owner was quick to remedy. A broom and dust pan would have helped us keep it clean. But we had a great time and this home was a perfect place to celebrate my 80th with my family. The pool was great as was the hot tub. We gathered, laughed enjoyed. Trip into town is short, a lovely hike short distance across and down the road. Deer strolling through each evening. View is outstanding. Thank you.

A Versatile Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin has the ability to accommodate a large group, hoping to sleep as many people as possible, but is also a GREAT layout for 2 or 3 individual families. With 2 Master Suites, 2 kitchens and a 3rd bedroom, it provides great privacy (when needed) and 2 well-sized living spaces for games, shared meals, movies and other group activities.

A large group of friends stayed here in the middle of winter, opting for the “sleep as many people as possible” option and we had a blast! The cabin stays very warm and is in a beautiful location, conveniently placed both close to downtown Leavenworth and popular hiking/snowshoe trails. We took advantage of both!

The cabin is well cared for, very clean and incredibly cozy! The owner/manager, Kelly, is friendly, responsive and easy to work with. I look forward to renting from him again. Thanks, Kelly!!

Great place for a vacation celebration!

  • 4 of 5

We had a large group ranging in ages from 22 months to 60 +. Along with 20 somethings! There was space for everyone and we did not feel crowded. The pool was awesome and the location can't be beat.

The owner is easy to work with! Would go again for a family good time!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words. I spent two days at the property before you arrived working morning noon and night getting it perfect. Although we would have loved a 5 star review we understand your trip to the store to get supplies in the midst of a 7 day stay was I anticipated. We have cleaners that would have gladly restocked you if you let us know! We do hope to have you back!

Beautiful place, but needs a little TLC.

  • 4 of 5

Overall we enjoyed our stay at the Chalet. It's a great place if you have teenagers. They were entertained by the beautiful pool, sand volleyball court, basketball court, and dart board. They were able to have their own space with the 2 separate houses. It was also nice to be so close to town and the river! That being said, I felt that the place needed a little TLC in some areas. We bought salmon and regular burgers to BBQ for 4th of July because the website showed a grill. When we went to use the grill it was not working. The owner said it was cemented in place and there was not much he could do. I wish we would have know that before spending all that money on great burgers and then having to pan fry them. Also, the place needed a good dusting (think top of refrigerator and light fixtures) and some new towels (some of them had that sour smell, but not all) and sheets (mine had a few holes). The patio outside was full of cotton seed and leaves so we didn't really want to have to clean it all before using the picnic table outside. There was also a dead bird on the roof of the porch overhand which we could see from our loft bedroom. So, we got to look at the dead bird the whole time! The owner, although very good about returning calls and emails, seemed to explain away my complaints instead of at least apologizing for the inconvenience of them or, even better, sending over his cleaning crew to dust, put new hole-free sheets on and remove the dead bird! Also, the bathroom situation is a bit funky. There are 3 bathrooms, but 2 of the bathrooms are attached to the 2 upstairs bedrooms, so really the only people that use them are the 4 people staying in those 2 rooms (other people COULD use them but it's awkward to walk through someone's bedroom). The other bathroom downstairs is then used by the remaining 8 people. So, if you are not too picky about details, and you care more about having your kids entertained, this is the house for you!

Owner's Response: This is an interesting one here and I'll explain why. My mom had been in the hospital passing away and I was on my way to Chicago to visit my mom in the hospital when I got the call on this one. I talked with the guest for an hour and she said that she ran her own housekeeping business and asked me if she should go ahead and do the cleaning and I could reduce her bill for the stay. I said, "No, I don't want you doing that, I can call in the staff" To which she said, "No it's more stuff that we would like you to clean for your next guest." As far as the BBQ goes. The grill was still working but true only on 3/4ths of the grill. The grill was old and had been stuck in that cement outdoor area for at least 12 years. But the good news is we were able to finally bust it out and we have a brand new grill in there and it is a very solid stainless higher end grill. After her review we have done a thorough indoor and outdoor cleaning of the property. We pressure washed everything, weeded, barked, scrubbed, cleaned, did windows and so forth. We've only had one complaint about the bathrooms. And we would love to add a fourth bathroom and plan to. We do not say that 14 people is not a little tight. This place is really designed for 8-10 in which the bathrooms are spread out and ample. But yes, if you want to squeeze in 14 we do have 14 sleeping spaces. Some choose to do that and they work to make it work. I will be more clear in my ad about this feature of my property. Thank you! I do appreciate these reviews though as it lets guests know that all my five star reviews are real and legitimate reviews. Best. Also, the hot tub is in great shape, clean and ready to go.
