About Tracie Furrer

Werner's parents migrated from Switzerland and have owned vacation property on this quiet secluded road since the 1970's. Back then the family put on many kayak races on this stretch of the river, and have shared their rustic cabin (next door) with many local and international guests. If you're lucky you might even run into Werner Sr. enjoying the original family cabin.

Werner Jr. and I were married in 1988. We were fortunate enough to purchase this property in 1999, and create additional family memories, while raising our two beautiful daughters. We built our home ourselves on weekends while living in Mukilteo. Every spare moment was was spent in Leavenworth creating lasting memories for our family and friends.

Werner Jr. started Werner Paddles (manufacturing canoe and kayak paddles). Most recently together we've changed career's and begun a new company, Northwest Creations, LLC, (a screen printing/promotional products business). We work hard, but also try to play hard. We enjoy nature and the outdoors; running, kayaking, x-country skiing, and hiking, You'll be able to tell by the hand made furniture and wood trimmings, Werner likes a good project.

We've named our home Haus am Fluss, which is Swiss German for 'House on River.' We genuinely hope you enjoy your time at our home. We welcome you to absorb the tranquility of this natural setting, and at the end of your stay, wish you didn't have to leave. That will mean we've succeeded in sharing our traditional Swiss families' values; sharing, caring and welcoming others.

Why Tracie Furrer chose Leavenworth

Again, we were very fortunate to have enjoyed the family property next door while growing up. Werner even proposed to me in the family cabin on a cold, but beautiful winter day!! This peaceful area has been the one place that has grounded our souls. When we head back over the pass we feel fresh and rejuvenated; ready to tackle the busy week ahead. The sound and easy access of the river, the wildlife, and the remoteness (but very close proximity to Leavenworth), makes this property unique and special.

Beautiful Surprises!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay. The owners were extremely helpful and welcoming. The property is incredibly well kept and beautiful. So easy to get lost relaxing by the river and enjoying it's beauty. This trip was originally planned to celebrate my friend turning 50. He decided to take advantage of the backdrop of the river to propose to his girlfriend. She said yes! It was an honor to be a part of and the property was the perfect setting for such a sweet moment. We all hated leaving but look forward to staying again someday.

Owner's Response: Wow! What a wonderful surprise! It must be karma! Werner proposed to me in the cabin next door 33 years ago! May your friend be as happy as we are in the many years to come! We do hope you’ll return to recover the special memories!

Christmas Wedding

  • 5 of 5

This one one of the most lovely stays we have ever had! We stayed here with our wedding party, and the hosts did EVERYTHING possible to make our stay memorable and comfortable. There was even a very tall Christmas tree that made the weekend magical. Thank you so much!

Owner's Response: We are honored to have our home be a part of your special day and memories. Congratulations on getting married! We're very happy for you. We do work hard looking for the perfect, skinny tree that is tall (20') and light. We're getting a bit too old for those hikes in the snowy woods. :) But we're still up for a few more of those adventures. Come back any time and Merry Christmas!

Thank for a wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed our stay at Haus am Fluss. Well appointed kitchen, three very nice bathrooms, lovely towels and bed linens, comfortable beds. The setting on the river was beautiful! We were here 2 nights to enjoy some late season hiking and Leavenworth dining. The beautiful fall weather was a huge bonus!

Charming Mountain Side Retreat Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This VRBO Cabin was everything we expected and more. The location on the Wenatchee River offers a stunning view of rapids and along a section where wild salmon runs occur. The cabin was very clean, the bedding was very comfortable. The master shower had great water pressure with two shower heads. Had the bonus of meeting the Owner Traci who was doing some gardening at the adjacent property. Traci is super nice and was very accommodating to any requests that we had, including my inquires about the history of the property. We will definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you David! It was a pleasure meeting you and your family. You're welcome back anytime. I will have to study up more on the history of the area. There are many interesting stories out there!
