About Riverside Properties Reservations, Darillyn

35+ year residents of Central Washington

Riverside Properties Reservations, Darillyn purchased this house in 2004

Why Riverside Properties Reservations, Darillyn chose Central Cascade Mountains

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

What makes this house unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for such a beautiful place to have our wedding! The views are breathtaking and the home was warm and inviting. This is paradise! We will be back for future anniversaries.

Gorgeous house close to downtown Leavenworth

  • 5 of 5

This home was incredible and worked perfectly for our group of 8. I can't even describe how beautiful the scenery is from the back and side yards (the house itself is amazing, too). Our entire group spent many hours just sitting and gazing. Between the river view and the orchards it was truly pristine. The drive into town is 10ish minutes and the hot tub was a great bonus! The kitchen had everything we needed and beds were super comfy. Thank you so much and we look forward to staying there again next year!

River Heights was an absolutely beautiful house and property! We came for Oktoberfest, but this place was really a highlight. Incredible kitchen, perfect views, great beds. Set in pear orchards, overlooking the river with bald eagles and deer nearby, it was just a treat to be there. All ten of us give it a 10!

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time at River Heights! The house is amazing! We really enjoyed seeing the deer in the orchard and the tubers floating past. We loved how close it is to town and even the wineries. I can't wait to go back. We had my 81 year old dad and the place was perfect for him; plus my 11 year old and my 14 year old nephew, there was something for everyone!

Owner's Response: Catherine, thank you for sharing your favorite moments with us! River Heights does have a little something for everyone. It is nice to know how well the Heights accommodated all the differing age groups. With most of the living space on one level, it’s an easy access for those who don’t favor going up and down stairs and the kids can feel catered to with the roomy daylight basement hangout!

What a lovely place for a vacation and a wedding!

  • 5 of 5

We were searching for a suitable place to have a small, private wedding when we found your River Heights home on VRBO. We couldn’t have been more pleased with the home, the loft, the grounds, or the town of Leavenworth. We especially loved the cooler temperatures having come from Texas, Southern California, and Louisiana in August. All those attending the wedding from both families thoroughly enjoyed our time together and the beautiful countryside surrounding us. Our wedding day was picture perfect, the location was breathtaking, the ceremony was beautiful, and many precious memories were made. We are so glad we found River Heights. Many thanks for sharing it with us.
