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 (Tracie) 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 the 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. Werner and Tracie Furrer

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.

We loved our visit! Even in April with misty weather, it is a beautiful cabin which has an amazing, peaceful and relaxing feel and views! Like a home away from home that's well equipped, comfortable and very clean. You can cook or bbq if you want yet close enough to take a short jaunt into town to enjoy a meal out! We will definitely stay there again!

We love this home
This is our second stay here and we are already talking about "next time."
Last time we were here with piles of snow everywhere and it was cozy and fun.
This time we got to enjoy more of the outdoors here and had a small campfire and a night time Easter egg hunt with lighted eggs.
It's been a special family weekend.
Thank you again.

Lighted Easter egg hunt! How fun! You picked a good weekend! Everything is starting to green up and the wildflowers are coming out. We're glad to hear you are thinking of returning. We'd be happy to have you come back!
Beautiful location! Great cabin!
Top-notch accommodations! Clean and comfortable! Loved it!
Great get away in Leavenworth
We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home. The huge windows open up to an awesome river view. Pictures don't do the view justice. The house is extremely clean and very well maintained. Tracie is an extremely gracious host and quickly responded to our questions. Plenty of room for the the four adults and one newborn in our party. Thank you for a memorable experience.
Amazing property right on the river just outside of Leavenworth.
The property was amazing and right on the river with beautiful views. Town is just a few minutes away so you're still close but far enough away to have peace and quite. Even though there are other houses along the river, you felt very secluded. The house sits on the opposite side of the river from Icicle Road so you don't have the traffic noise some other cabins have. The house itself is beautiful and very well stocked with everything you could possibly need and has a very warm and cozy feel to it. The deck and fire pit looked really nice but we had a lot of snow and freezing temps so we didn't get to use them for obvious reasons. Needless to say the wood burning fireplace got a lot of use and there was an abundance of chopped wood available for us.
If you're looking for a warm, cozy and quite cabin right on the river, this is the place! The owners are very nice and great to deal with.
We will definitely be back and can't recommend this place enough.
If you wanted a quiet time to cozy up to the fire, you timed it just perfect. We thought spring had sprung on Friday, then Saturday came almost a foot of snow. Then the freezing temperatures have allowed it to stick around. The makings for a good book and cup of cocoa. We love those days, and are glad you did too. Please, do come back and enjoy the river and surroundings in the summer! You'll have a totally different feel. So glad you felt at home.
Splendid family respite
We planned a family snowshoe adventure but, alas, most of the snow had melted. Our 3 night stay was still a 5 out of 5...actually 10 out of 10! The location was breathtaking, sitting right on the rushing Wenatchee River. The home exceeded our expectations for this time with our 3 adult children (mid 20s). Beautiful handcrafted furnishings with accents that made us want to know more about these talented people who designed and built such a lovely home. Every amenity was of high quality and well maintained; every room was lovingly decorated to provide ambience and tranquility; every view was soothing to our eyes and minds. Owners were quick to respond to any questions or requests for information and provided an easy to understand instructional book for operating or finding anything associated with their home. Our family went into town for about an hour, but couldn't wait to get back to this riverfront oasis. Definitely on our "return to" list. Pictures can't begin to capture the beauty of this setting and this home. Thank you to Tracie and Werner for your attention to every detail which made this a memorable family experience.
Robin, we are very please to learn that your family was able to feel so comfortable, and enjoyed the cabin as your home away from home for the weekend. Our family continues to make special memories there, and we're happy to share and allow others the same experience. Next time you come, we'll be happy to tell you the stories behind some of our special items. Please do come again!
