Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: 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. Werner and Tracie Furrer

Why the Owner Chose Leavenworth, WA, USA:
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.
