Great house and great location
Love being close to town, but having privacy and space. Have stayed here quite a few times and have enjoyed each trip. House has lots of space, very clean and feels very cozy.
RIGHT ON THE HIGHWAY
It was not apparent to me at time of booking that in fact the property is right on Highway 2. The property description and photos completely ignored this reality. Yes, the house is also on the river ("lake" here because of small dam). However, there is no place to take a walk without getting into a car.
Since nearby outside time was somewhat limited, we ended up wanting to stay in and watch movies and such... But, lo and behold the only wifi is "metered". Which means that streaming does not work, and even on demand shows and movies from the satellite Direct TV are impossible. There were no DVDs on the property. The TV experience was thus like going back in time 20 years, with plenty of commercials and seeing what's on now. Oh yes, and there is no way to know how much of your "metered" wifi you have used and how much you have left before it either gets shut off or you get charged extra. Management took a few days to get back to me on during our stay.
The hot tub was nice and clean, but the mechanism to help get the lid off was broken and looked as if it had been that way for some time, based on the amount of rust. There was a stove burner out, and a few lights out. The magazines on property were up to 10 years out of date. I don't know how regularly maintenance is performed. The gas fireplaces did work, and that was a nice feature.
Overall, the house is clean and convenient to the highway, but it's not the place to be if you want to be able to easily walk in the woods or curl up in a quiet cabin. It is also not accessible for people with more limited strength or balance, as you have to step over a low boulder to enter the front door. It did have adequate dishes and cooking utensils, which was nice, but overall had the faint smell of a money-making operation at its core. Renter beware.
This place was absolutely breathtaking. Wonderful amenities, communicative host, lovely location.
Get Away on Lake Jolanda
The lodge hideaway is tucked below Hwy 2 on Lake Jolanda, just outside Leavenworth. It fit 12 adults comfortably. The views of the lake were magical as the river otters glided by the lodge windows. Ann was awesome in supporting our stay at the lodge hideaway. Thanks for a great getaway!
Thank you for your great review Stephen! Hope you enjoyed the skiing too. Have a great 2020!
Family Christmas celebration away
We are 3 families of 6 adults and 3 kids who had a wonderful stay at Jolanda Lodge. The setting couldn't have been more magical with the snow, mountains, and river. The special Christmas decorations also added a special treat as we celebrated Christmas together. Thanks for a wonderful time.
Many hiking trails in the area.
