About jim and joanne carvitto

Jim is a retired teacher and Jo a retired dental hygienist. This is our new adventure alongside being grandparents. We LOVE living in Leavenworth and there aren't enough hours in the day to do everything that's available!

jim and joanne carvitto purchased this cabin in 2011

Why jim and joanne carvitto chose North Central Cascades

We both grew up in North Central Washington and couldn't wait to get back! Two of our three sons and their families settled in Leavenworth so the location was an easy choice!

We bought our property several years ago and in 2011 started the building process. It has been a hands on daily 'art project', with the guidance of contractor friends, to build our home and the vacation rental property. We feel so very blessed to be able to live in this incredible area and look forward to our morning coffee and absorbing the view! There is never a shortage of things to do or new places to hike or bike to. The variety of art, theater, festivals and events is amazing! We look forward to sharing this with others and hope you experience the same peace and refreshment here that we do!

What makes this cabin unique

It only took one drive down our road to know that this was where we wanted to live! It has taken several years of planning and lots of hard work, but we finally live here and LOVE it! The mountains leave us awe struck and they are always calling us! There just isn't anything like the fragrance and beauty you experience when hiking in the wilderness….and it's right near our doorstep!

Great base for all the activities in Leavenworth area

The Lookout was perfect for our group, two couples and infant. We enjoyed the beautiful home in between activities over a long weekend. Thanks to the great property owners and check out Lookout coffee!

Excellent work and play location

  • 5 of 5

Rented this location so we could work using the internet at night and play in the snow during the day. The location is close to town, and also within a few minutes drive of some great snow shoe hikes (Icicle Ridge) and cross country skiing (Sleep Lady and the Golf Course). The kitchen is well supplied, and the host left some welcome treats, which were appreciated. It's very new, clean, extremely quiet and had excellent wifi, so it was a comfortable place to work from too. I enjoyed working from the kitchen table and couches and looking out at the snow covered meadow and mountains. It was just two of us for the trip, but a family of four would also be comfortable. We didn't use the TV, but one was available. Although the weather was extremely cold outside, the cabin stayed warm. The owners were very gracious and accommodating to a few small requests we made. I would definitely rent this location again.

amazing experience

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Lookout. It is a quiet and peaceful, but close enough to downtown. The house has everything you may need, very well kept and super clean. Covered parking and BEAUTIFUL view from the balcony and windows. We will be back.

Wonderful winter getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My mom, husband, and I stayed at Jim and Jo's house, the Lookout, for a few days just after Christmas and it was so perfect for a short getaway to Leavenworth from Seattle. Jim and Jo were so nice and hospitable, they came up and greeted us as we arrived (they live just next door), they had a covered parking spot so our car wouldn't get dumped on with snow. The apartment was in a great location (only a few minute drive to town), looked brand new, nice clean new appliances, cozy 2 bedroom just enough space for the 3 of us. All of the personal touches (games, chocolates from their favorite shop, a sample of some of their coffee, etc.) they put on the trip was so nice, way better than staying at a hotel! I had even forgot a few items at the house and Jo was so kind to mail them to me without any problems. Will come back again anytime!

Majestic view and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

If you are looking for an amazing view of the surrounding mountains of Leavenworth, with a relaxed and wide-open feeling, this place is it! This home was immediately appealing when we first arrived, and felt like home up to the day we left. We saw deer pass through the area daily, and the large front yard was a safe spot to let our two young girls play in the snow. We appreciated the owner's taste in decor, and doing the little things that make us want to return, such as a Christmas tree and a daily supply of fresh coffee from the family's local coffee business. A few minor suggestions: Cooking is one the things I like to do on vacation, so I would suggest better knives in a knife block and serving bowls and platters. A place to hang coats and winter clothes would also help keep the space tidy.
