Reservations Manager purchased this house in 2004

Longtime admirers of Leavenworth's culture and landscape, we were captured by the entrancing beauty of this valley prospect. We are honoured to be its stewards.

Painter's views repose behind every window of the house, revealing the surrounding 11 acres of forest and pear orchard, a yawning valley, and unadulterated natural beauty. A haven, nature's own art, a respite from the world.

Fantastic, but with a few issues.

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 30, 2014

The home was expansive and beautiful with a huge, well stocked kitchen. We rented during the Christmas holiday week, and had the maximum number of occupants. The sofa bed had two large folds/bumps and was too uncomfortable for the adults. They kindly offered the chalet/loft for a cleaning fee, which worked out fine. However, they charged a high fee for laundering "excessive" linens. The directions explicitly stated to put all linens in the basket and did not say to launder them, so I assumed they had their own method figured out. Given the size of our group, there were a lot of linens, but that was the capacity for the home. I asked why the cost was so high, and the response was that we had already benefitted from the chalet (which I think is a separate issue) and that it took 8 hours of staff time to wash the towels and linens. I would have been glad to do the laundry ahead of time, or at least gotten a head start, but it was not communicated in their very detailed cleaning instructions. I also was unhappy that they were supporting their position with the Chalet as if we owed them additionally. The holiday rate is already pricey, and I felt nickel and dimed. But, if you have a smaller group than the maximum and do laundry, it is a fantastic place.
Owner's Response: We had not received a complaint about the sleeper sofa in the past, so when these guests told us it had been uncomfortable for the person(s) using it, we offered our neighboring Loft suite (usually rented for $175/night, plus tax) for the remainder of their stay, for our cost - a $100 cleaning fee. We hoped that would increase their enjoyment of the home and make their stay over the holidays a more pleasant and memorable experience.

The housekeeping fee to which they refer was a $200 charge for 8 hours 'over-and-above' our usual cleaning allowance of 15 hours. We typically absorb extra cleaning hours, as we realize there will be groups that represent a little more work, and some that require a little less. But, when our Housekeeping Supervisor compared the work encountered with this group to other turnovers serviced, he recommended we apply an additional fee. Our hope was that guest would consider that in the larger picture, they received several night's use of the Loft suite for essentially no charge, and that even with a cleaning fee, the stay had still been an excellent value for them.

We value feedback from our customers and do attempt to make every guest experience a good one. Decisions to apply charges are made with a great deal of thought and internal discussion, and always with the desire to be fair to the guest.

Set in a secluded spot and nestled between pear trees and forest with a stunning view of the river below, this home is truly a treasure. The kitchen, dining room and living room are updated and expansive, making for great family gatherings. We were able eat, play games and enjoy our time together without ever feeling cramped. The management is great. I can't say enough about this wonderful home and it's location. We hope to return for a family gathering at Christmas sometime.

Our family was looking for a quiet location in Leavenworth - the accommodations were perfect, very spacious, clean and all the bells/whistles you would expect. Hot tub was appreciated after a long day of hiking and biking.

The property manager could not have been more accommodating to our requests. thank you

Wonderful Weekend Getaway

We had such a great weekend getaway at River Heights! The house was perfect for our large group -- we had 13 people in the main house, and a couple with their baby in the separate loft. The grounds are immaculate and the house is beautiful and incredibly spacious. We loved the indoor/outdoor stereo system and the fact that the house was so private -- we never felt like we were disturbing the neighbors which was nice.

It was a weekend to remember and I'd strongly recommend River Heights to anyone looking for a high-quality Leavenworth Rental. We'll definitely be back to visit in the future.

Wonderful House! Great Stay!

We had a lovely stay at River Heights. It is really a beautiful piece of property and is actually quite an affordable little bit of luxury if you have several couples staying together. Everyone had their individual space, but yet the gathering areas were perfect for a large group. The views were truly "rapturous" and even if the weather is rainy or bad you don't mind because the view is great. It was only a short drive to downtown Leavenworth and grocery stores, etc. The only thing I will note is that if you have small children, you will need to watch them very carefully outside as the edges of the property do drop off quite suddenly in several places (not a bad thing, it is actually part of what makes the views so amazing, but if you want to let your small children run free outside, this might not be the house for you although there is a beautiful grassy section near the orchard that does lend more to running around, but still requires supervision).

Owner's Response: Sometimes I wish I was a fly on the wall and could see peoples' reactions when they first arrive. It's true that the views are amazing and I'm so glad that you were able to enjoy them and soak in the gorgeous surroundings. No matter what season or what the weather it is simply spectacular. Please come back again!
Kindly, Allison and The Riverside Team
