Any season and every season is the reason you will want to stay at our lovely vacation home. We know you will find our home has all you need for a great getaway to the town of Leavenworth.
Relax in the evenings in our wonderful hot tub while enjoying the amazing view and sound of the river in your own backyard. Like the reviews say, the photos do not do our place justice. Have a cookout on the gas BBQ grill and enjoy the amazing view of the river that no matter how hard you try, you can not avoid being drawn into a very relaxing stay with us. Just enjoy yourself and take that needed break you have been talking about and needing while you are at our home on the river.
We rent out our home to you as either a 3 bedroom or a 4 bedroom depending upon you need as our guests. The 4th bedroom rental rate is slightly higher than the 3rd bedroom rental rate since you are occupying more of the home. We have learned there are exceptions to the typical headcount approach because without knowing you; we have no way to understand that 4 or 5 adults may need 4 bedrooms because not all of you may be couples.
E. g. IF 4-5 guests come to stay they can add on the 4th bedroom by renting the new lock off bedroom area. Sometimes in a group of friends one or more of you may snore so loudly that no one is willing to share a bedroom with them. (I personally know that experience, I am the one that snores). If you need the new 4th bedroom, be sure to indicate this for your reservation when your group size is 4 or more persons.
Whether your visit is for a special birthday, or for family weddings, anniversaries, retirement parties, graduations, parents' away weekends, ladies weekends away, bachelor or bachelorette parties, all golfers, hikers and cyclists or skiers will enjoy the time you have at the cottage. The best reason for a trip, is no special reason at all.
Our groups are delighted and impressed with this cottage, and especially with how clean we keep our home, (in addition to the awesome view and hot tub) so they rebook quickly for their next gathering in Leavenworth with us. At our cottage you will have a magnificant natural display of living right on a river, amazing opportunity to see the wildlife, a comfortable home that is very well maintained for your visit and your every need considered and planned for while you are here. There is no where else, this close to town, to stay and be right on the riverfront shoreline with your own private river access right on the property. You won't be sharing the foot path trail with anyone but who you came with.
Please come with these thoughts in mind when you are selecting the dates you would like for your stay. You will enjoy viewing wildlife on the river and the amazing hillside on the opposite shore. It is difficult to focus on anything else once you are here in front of the picturesque view of the river and being less than a mile from downtown Leavenworth. From cottage to gazebo, in the central town square, we are just 1 mile and only 1/2 a mile from the Icicle Village Resort with Theater and Miniature golf course.
Our newest feature is the 4-5 person hot tub. Photos are now available to see the location and placement of the hot tub right next to the house and near the deck, also with a view of the river. Hearing the flow of the moving water while you spend an evening in the hot tub is an awesome experience and if you are lucky enough to be here for a full moon, nothing could be better. Very private, inspiring and a relaxing time for anyone.
The golf course is across the road from the cottage. Golfing opens April 1st and ends Nov 1st. In winter the groomed cross country trails on the golf course our very well maintained for the sport. (No walking on the trails for you non x-country snow lovers though).
Call us before you arive for information about the town and activies while you are staying. See the stars at night and hear the coyotes in this foothill retreat on the river's edge. You are on the edge of the wilderness, and yet, just outside of the city limits of the actual town of Leavenworth. A great combination. We know you are really going to like it here!!
Rafting and tubing groups love our cottage with the direct path access we have right down to the shoreline so you can fully enjoy your time on the river. Watching the Osprey, Hawks and Eagles soar the mountain's ridge as they fish and hunt in the early mornings is a memorable event you won't want to miss. Collect driftwood to your heart's content for your art projects and crafts, or find a new great hiking stick for your journeys up into the Enchantments, and 8-Mile Creek. The major river rise from the snow melting is in the month of May through the middle of June each year.
We accept bookings no more than 12 months in advance.
Comments from our previous guests include recommendations for anyone to stay at the cottage, and generally boast of the well stocked kitchen and our comfortable beds to allow you a good nights rest. Along with the internet and WiFi access, fireplace, hot tub, Gas BBQ grill and deck there is something for everyone. They say it is so peaceful here that they don't want to leave.
It's a beautiful home and a wonderful place to be. Everything is included which is great.
The living room fireplace makes the room perfect; their dining room is nice along with a great deck and BBQ.
The best night's sleep I have had anywhere away from my own bed in years.
We will be back again and again for as long as they are here to rent out this home.
I have never slept so soundly and went to sleep so quickly on my vacation.
And finally from us as the owners and managers of this property;
We sincerely thank you for sharing a moment of your time at our home.
It is hard to resist the beautiful location, the quiet tranquility and the lovely charm of this riverfront home.

Hello! We are the owners and managers of the White Water Cottage Leavenworth. We are here for you to make this location one of the best places you have ever stayed in or around Leavenworth. We are soon to retire to this area after our son is through college. That hopefully will be in 4 years of less. 2016 here we come. So . . . Our newest family phrases and quick letter lingos are PST or Putting Son Through (college). Then there is RTH, Retire to House. This is our game plan. To build the new home we have always wanted in Leavenworth and maintain a wonderful vacation place near by.
The reason we purchased this property is simple: It's the location. We can not think of a better place to spend our retirement than having this peaceful and comfortable cottage as our way to meet and make new friends from all around this area or the country. A Wenatchee River property just outside Leavenworth with white water all year long from the Tenley's Falls rapids was almost too good to be true, but here we are. Access to the river's eddy pool for swimming, tubing and kayaking is so easy! Wildlife right in front of you. This is the place we don't want to leave and neither will you!
From our property we've seen Osprey soar the mountain ridge and dive for fish, and numerous deer raid the neighbor's bird feeders. We have a bird watchers paradise just outside all of our windows, on the deck or upstairs on the bedroom balconies. At the end of summer, occasionally, we have had the surprise of seeing a bear come to fish and bathe in the river right in front of us at the foot of our riverfront property. Of course, when the bear is there, they have the right of way to use the river. We wait for the bear to leave and then enjoy logging all the photos we took of seeing them. We really are experiencing the best of both worlds. Living and seeing firsthand the edge of the wilderness come to life right in front of us, and having a fun place to go shop, dine and visit so close in town.
It is also a thrill to watch the rafters make it over the Falls or flip as they charge over the huge waves at the end of the rapids. This makes us want to get out on the river more ourselves, and we have ridden our rafting tubes in July and August every summer. We can walk to downtown Leavenworth and enjoy all the activities Leavenworth has to offer: art, fine food, festivals, wines, and more.
