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.

Werner and Tracie Furrer

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.

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!

good but surveillance

  • 3 of 5

Beautiful house and grounds, just on the river and close to town. Beware the entire outdoor property is under video surveillance. There was NO notice of this until we arrived. No consent or mention in the rental agreement. This I have not encountered before after years of using vrbo or air bnb. For us it was a big turn off, feeling of being watched every time we left the interior of the house. It took away from the pleasure of spending time there. We are grown ups and signed a rental agreement, that used to suffice. If you need video surveillance, please notify renters BEFORE arrival. We would have looked elsewhere.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback Samantha! We're very sorry you were uncomfortable! We wish you would have called to let us know. We would have told you how to turn it off during your stay. We do have camera's set up only on the outside of the house. We live very busy lives in Mukilteo, so we are not always able to just run by the house to check on things. They were installed prior to us renting out our home, to keep an eye on the house when we weren't there. It's there to detour intruders, as well as watch for wildlife. We've had critters visit the garbage. During the winter we monitor the snowfall and the snow coming off the roof, so we know when we need to go over and clear the snow. The camera's are not intended to watch our guests. I truly thought I had mentioned the camera's in both the VRBO site, and the rental agreement. Going back, I was unable to see the notation. I have updated the site and Rental Agreement. I will also contact our guests that currently have reservations letting them know about the cameras, giving them options if they are uncomfortable. We've stayed at vacation rentals ourselves with camera's. We never paid attention to them. We've assumed the owners use them respectfully as we do, so we didn't give it much thought. Again, we apologize that you were not able to fully enjoy your time at our home. We truly appreciate your candid feedback. Sam's Response 9/13/17: Thank you Tracie for your great response. I totally understand your need for cameras at your house. However, this was our first encounter with this issue and we are private folks. It caught us off guard and I was going to call you about it, but never did. We worked around it. Your place was amazing and we played in icicle creek rd! Nice family gathering.
