Leavenworth House Rental Photos and Description
House, 4 bedrooms + convertible beds, 3.5 bathrooms (sleeps 12)

Poised high above the Wenatchee River, surrounded by acres of orchard and forest, this 3,000-square-foot dwelling is a haven of luxury, privacy, and scenery. Inside, enjoy spacious living quarters, a large island kitchen, entertainment den, and expansive windows to admire the awe-inspiring views. Outside are deck, spa, barbeque, a vast lawn, and stone patios commanding a hilltop prospect of the valley below. Nestled in the North Cascades two miles from Leavenworth, activities abound, from biking, hiking, rafting, rock-climbing, nordic and alpine skiing, to wine-tasting, sight-seeing, and a full calendar of events at Washington's bavarian village.

16-year residents of Central Washington

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.

Responsive but poor follow-up

The home itself is very nice when we rented last Labor day, but the refrigerator did not hold temperature and our food/drinks were warm. The sound system also did not work.The manager was very responsive and brought over ice and another outdoor refrigerator. We wanted to rent again this year, but asked about the refrigerator being fixed and were told that there was nothing wrong ever with the refrigerator and that we had opened the door too much (which we didn't). When we begged to differ but still wanted to rent, the new management then sent us a nasty follow-up email saying they would never rent to us again. Fairly shocking response since we were repeat customers. Guess what? We'll never rent from you again! If you want to rent this property, don't complain to the new management if anything goes wrong.
Owner's Response: This guest stayed with us last year over Labor Day weekend. He reported that the refrigerator was not cooling correctly. We brought bags of ice along with transporting a spare refrigerator to the location to try and minimize the inconvenience. On Tuesday, after the holiday weekend, we placed a service call to determine the nature of the cooling problem. At the time of the evaluation, which was 3-4 days after the guest's departure, the technician advised us that the refrigerator was cooling correctly. He explained how refrigerators operate and the processes of cooling. His suggestion was that maybe the doors had been opened too frequently, or perhaps warm food had been placed inside. It was quite hot that time of year, so his explanation seemed plausible, and there have been no further problems with the unit.

When this guest contacted us this year, he wanted to rent on the condition that we guarantee our refrigerator to stay between 38 and 41 degrees during their visit or issue him a 10 percent refund. We shared the technician's suggestion of what may have occurred last year, but the guest said it was completely inaccurate. We weren't sure what to do. There have been nearly 50 guests in this home over the course of the past year, and this was the only problem reported with the refrigerator. We do not anticipate a problem, but chose not to enter into an agreement with this guest given the possible point of contention.

Serene and Luxurious

I just wanted to tell you that we had such an amazing time at your cabin! The setting was absolutely gorgeous, and I really appreciated the well-stocked kitchen. The cathedral ceilings and gigantic view windows in the great room were so serene! All of the beds slept our group of 14 comfortably, and the view from the hot tub showed the entire valley. Looking forward to coming back next year!

Great place for a large family

My family has gone to Leavenworth for the past 5 years and have stayed at a couple places. This one is by far our favorite, it is comfortably big enough for our whole family (10 people), nice inside, great views, very clean, and has an all around wonderful atmosphere. We have stayed there twice now, and have already booked our third stay for Christmas this year. One thing to consider for anyone that is not familiar with Leavenworth is that this house is not within walking distance of the downtown area, only a 3 minute drive though, and worth it for such a great place.

Wonderful place for a family

Very relaxing, beautiful scenery. The seclusion of the area made for a very calm and relaxed vacation. Our youngest child enjoyed the hot tub, our middle child liked the view of the river, and our oldest enjoyed the open spaces and freedom to walk around the area. Mom and Dad enjoyed the quiet, river rafters, and watching trains go by. Thanks for sharing your wonderful place with our family.

What a beautiful house! We had a wonderful Christmas here and the house made it that much better. All 12 of us fit perfectly and comfortably. The sledding run was so much fun, but after a couple of runs, an elevator would have been nice! We used an air mattress and it worked awesome! Loved being surrounded by such beautiful views. The wood stove was lovely to sit around at night, although some of our 'cavemen' had a hard time starting it - haha! The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of blankets to keep us warm :)... Oh, and the heated floors... AMAZING! Thanks for the fabulous vacation, hope we come again!

The whole family had a wonderful stay. What a beautiful house. We had room for all 12 of us. The kitchen was a wonderful place to cook all our meals together. We even baked Christmas cookies. The snow was great with plenty of time for sledding and even building a snowman. The grandkids played for hours and it was great being able to play in the snow and come in to warm cider and cocoa.

We hope we will be able to stay again at this beautiful home. Thanks so much!
