You are able to rent this cabin as a 3 bedroom, all on the 2nd floor; and also as a 4 bedroom home depending upon your needs. We have a main floor bedroom for persons with leg/knee problems. Let us know how large your group is in your first inquiry so that you will be given an accurate rate quote for your reservations.
After your hikes and other outdoor activities, you will want to relax in our wonderful new hot tub, and new, really means new. We now have a 2014 Hot Spring model just installed at the end of March. It is impossible not to relax while enjoying the amazing view and sound of the river from the backyard while you are relaxing and soaking up this feature. We are a very unique location with one of the most amazing views in the area.
As you open the blinds this view that is unobstructed by trees and shrubs will make you catch your breath. This view is awesome and the home is nice also. No matter how hard you try, you cannot avoid being drawn in by this unique and wonderful setting right on the river.
Whether your visit is for a special birthday, Holidays, or for family reunions, weddings, anniversaries, graduations, etc., or you seek the recreation of skiing, golfing, river rafting, kayaking or tubing this is the place for your getaway. If you are hikers, climbers or cyclists enjoy the time you have at the cottage while being the first up in the morning at the trail head or out on the road for your bike ride.
There is no where else this close to town to be right on the riverfront shoreline, right next to the 'White Water' of the Tenley Fall's Rapids and see deer, osprey, eagles and raccoon. It is difficult to focus on anything else once you are in front of the opposing canyon wall and being just over a mile from downtown Leavenworth. There is also river shoreline access from the cottage, down a walking path on the embankment, about 50 feet below the main property.
For all those golfers who enjoy our area, the public 18-hole golf course is right across the road from the cottage. Golfing opens April 1st and closes for the winter season on November 1st. In the winter there are groomed trails on the golf course for the sport of x-country skiing. Hiking is abundant in this area and so many events to enjoy in and around the town.
From cottage to gazebo, in the central town square, we are just over 1 mile. This is an easy walk for all able bodied people. 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!!
We accept bookings up to 12 months in advance. Comments from our previous guests include recommendations for anyone to stay at the cottage. Along with the internet and WiFi access, TV, Cable and Netflix, we have the gas log fireplace, New Hot Tub, a Gas BBQ grill and a great deck. There is something for everyone. Our guests will tell you it is so beautiful and peaceful; they really don't want to leave. It is hard to resist the beautiful location, the quiet tranquility and the lovely charm of this riverfront cottage home.

About Sunnie Parkman
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.
Sunnie Parkman purchased this cottage in 2010
Why Sunnie Parkman chose Leavenworth
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!
What makes this cottage unique
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.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We all had a wonderful time in Leavenworth, last weekend. I want to thank you for letting us stay in your lovely cottage. To look out the living room windows to see the beauty of God's creation that surrounded us there, was awesome. Your home was so comfortable & our stay so enjoyable none of us wanted to leave. We hope to come back again someday. Thanks again. Marion from Snohomish, WA
