About Barbara Knapp

Dedicated to celebrating life with family and friends. Sharing the blessings with those we love.

Barbara Knapp purchased this lodge in 2013

Why Barbara Knapp chose North Central Cascades

The most incredible gathering place we have ever been. When we first drove up to the lodge we were impressed by her presence, but after entering we fell head over heels with how truly grand she is. The biggest surprise was opening the back door to find the roar of the Wenatchee river and we were hooked! Everything about this home is truly GRAND!

New! August 2016! We have installed a private putting/chipping green on the front lawn! Bring your wedges and putters and sharpen your skills on your private green!

Spectacular !!!!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our daughters wedding last week and even though I had stayed in the home before for a corporate retreat, it was still an amazing experience. The home and the property are endless and the only way to truly appreciate this home is to stay overnight (several nights is even better). Many of our guests came from all over the country and most stated this was the most impressive home for relaxing and enjoying friends and family that they had ever stayed at. I would recommend this home to anyone who is seeking relaxation, first class lodging and an experience to remember for a lifetime. Truly a world class home and property that I do not believe can be matched anywhere in the area.

Magic in the Cascades

  • 5 of 5

The Grand River Lodge is one of the most amazing mountain retreats in the Cascades. Barb, the owner, and her partners take meticulous care of the property, and she thinks of every last detail. From the welcome message just for us on the giant Scrabble board to the tastefully-placed Nerf soakers on the beach and everything in between, it was the little thoughts that made this dream house feel immediately like home. We stayed here with about 16 folks in July for a family/friend reunion to celebrate a special family thing, and the only word to describe our experience was "magical." The price is a little higher than other places on VRBO, but when you consider the cost of hotels for each of our guests, this is by far the smarter option--and the experience is worth every penny. I can't say enough about Barb, either. We now have many cherished memories that we never expected, from just simple family dinners in the fabulous dining room to sitting on the riverbank at night under fairy lights, and we all look forward to returning in future summers.

  • 5 of 5

The Grand River Lodge is absolutely stunning! When we first arrived, we were blown away by its beauty and how every detail has been carefully crafted! The owner, Barb was so helpful and we cannot wait to stay here again for a special occasion with our family! Thank you for the wonderful memories surrounding our daughter's wedding( at a neighboring winery) with our family and friends who were graced by this amazing property!!

Wow! Exceeded expectations!

  • 5 of 5

This property is staying at your own private resort! Our family reunion was a four-day event, with participants ranging from age 1 to 87. Everyone loved this location! Casual elegance and incredible space inside, and such an abundance of lovely outdoor areas to "hang out," and dine on the huge porch overlooking the river. The sandy beach area was a great bonus, and tubing with "Osprey" allowed us to float the Wenatchee River and return a short distance from the lodge. The property managers were wonderful and so responsive. A great find!

Breathtaking views inside and outside!

  • 5 of 5

We hosted a party of 50 people on Saturday and every single person was taken away by the beauty! We had 16 people stay overnight at the Lodge and it was more than big enough! The beach on the river, golf in the front yard, beach cruiser bikes, basketball hoop, pool table, life size scrabble board and poker table offered an adventure at every corner. Not to mention the back deck overlooking the river with a gas fire pit and seating galore! We would highly recommend this place for anyone looking to have a great time and share incredible memories! My only caution is that once you arrived you're not going to want to leave! Thank you Barb (the owner) for being available for all of our questions, responding immediately and helping create the best vrbo experience we have ever had!
