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!

Amazing property right on the river just outside of Leavenworth.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Splendid family respite

  • 5 of 5

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.

Unbelieveable Location For any time of year

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 3 days and could have stayed 3 weeks easily, the place was clean with everything you could need to be comfortable. The location is perfect on the river 2 min. from town the house is beautiful we may return this summer as well to play in the sun. If they added a hot tub I may move in permanently. No Disappointments here.

Owner's Response: We're very pleased to hear you were happy with the cabin and you'd like to come back again! Please do, anytime of year! Leavenworth has all four seasons! We have definitely considered a hot tub, however, due to constant maintenance issues, safety, and liability concerns, we've decided against it. But when you come back in the summer, you'll have a huge lukewarm tub with natural jets (the Wenatchee River)! :)

Perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Tracie and Werner’s gorgeous cabin! It was well equipped, bigger than we expected and immaculately clean! The view of the river was so beautiful and you cannot beat the quick proximity to downtown Leavenworth! We would absolutely stay here again! Thank you!

Great house to stay in the beautiful nature(woods, river)

  • 5 of 5

Nice and beautiful house, great and very nice owners, 100% responsive if needs something. They are living just on next cabin if need something just ask they are very responsive for everything.

Kitchen was fully equipped, one thing if you need to use some spices probably is better way to bring it with you. One queen bed is in loft(open space upper floor, from living room, kitchen and dining area) a little uncomfortable to sleeping while someone watching movie downstairs or staying late on the dining area(that is not a bad thing, it is just for me I love to have privacy and sleep when quiet(we have been swap rooms with our friends)).

Outside: Deck with a good view, it has a lot's of snow there, a little danger to walk under eaves of house because of big icicle on the sides of house, especially when children are playing around a house it looks danger if they are falling down... Be careful when you are planning to stay with children.

Walking time to downtown around 35-40 minutes. And probably not such a great idea to walk from the house to downtown, because on the main road(Icicle Rd.) cars is running and it doesn't have any sidewalk, you have to walk on the road. We are trying to go to downtown walking with strollers but it was unsafe, because on the road doesn't have sidewalk even on the bridge and car is running (on winter snowy time). If you are planning to go to downtown better to use vehicle(on winter snowy time). I have no idea about summer time.

Overall everything was great!!! House is beautiful and definitely will recommend to visit this house.

Thank you.
