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 North Central Cascades

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.

tranquil setting next to the river

  • 5 of 5

We stayed three nights at this beautifully appointed cabin just minutes away from town. This location is perfect! Away from the the commotion from town this jewel next to the river was just what the doctor ordered. The cabin is decorated like a cozy mountain cabin which just adds to the tranquil river passing below. The cabin easily accommodates six people with all the privacy you would need. If visiting this area again we will definitely stay here again.

Tears when we left!

  • 5 of 5

Just WOW! Let me just take a few minutes to rave over this property! This vacation to Washington from Texas was MUCH needed for my family of 4. The moment we drove on to the property we were amazed on how secluded, yet right around the street from the cute town of Leavenworth! We got the in the habit of getting up every morning and having our coffee down by the river. (Now, there's my patio and 100% humidity...thanks southeast Texas!) My 21 and 16 year old daughters loved to sit by the river, hammock in the trees, and just relax as a family. We even loved the wildlife! I saw the cutest otter family of 3 right by me as I sat by the river, watched the birds, and even saw a BEAR PRINT down by the river! Your goal for offering your home was MET! :)

The home itself was completely CLEAN and stocked with useful thank you!

I appreciated all your clear instructions, directions, and a book on activities to do around the town. Our family enjoyed the shopping, white water rafting, horseback riding, and just RELAXING.

I have no complaints, just all SMILES! Thank you so much for opening up your home! (I know this must be the 100th time I've said it!)

Wendy, Robert, Robyn, and Abby

Owner's Response: Well, you made tears flow on our end too,... just reading your review! There are times when we wonder if others appreciate our property and it's beauty as much as we do. It warms our hearts to know you and your family embraced it. We hope you hang on to the memories you've created, and maybe come again to make some more. By the list of activities, you did seem to enjoy most of what Leavenworth has to offer, but there is more. Thank you Wendy!

Amazing property, view, location!!!

  • 5 of 5

I didn't realize i'd failed to review our stay until I came to look at dates to book this amazing property again!! We came with our college/young adult aged children. There was more than enough room, with a bedroom on each level. The basement is huge and families will love the games, ping pong table - and extra space!! We loved everything about the property, from the location on the river, to every single thoughtful amenity and so many hand made treasures inside. The owners are super friendly. We pulled our 19ft boat and there was plenty of parking - realize of course that the road to the cabin is narrow so you'll want to plan your turn arounds! It's a quick drive to downtown or any area attractions. I can't wait to come back!!

Owner's Response: Hi Kayla! Thank you for the review. Yes, you need to be able to be confident in your turn-around/backing up abilities to bring in a trailer, but there is room to turn around a trailer or a motor home in our parking area. There are still dates available in Aug 2017 if you're looking to return! We'd be happy to have your family back again.

Great Place to Stay in Leavenworth

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here many time and LOVE the place. Great to go down by the river after a great day of golf. Fun to kick back in the winter time watching the snow come down and sitting around the big family table with the fire place going. Great place to stay

Oasis. Neat & tiday. Everything you need and want in a vacation home.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was so neat and tidy and above and beyond expectation. The home is very cozy and has everything you need. There are bird feeders that attract many different species - you could be entertained and mesmerized for hours. AND then there's the river! Very close and the sound of river rushing is soothing. Good clean water and fresh air. The proximity to downtown is an added luxury! Had a fabulous time. Thank You
