Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms - 1.5 Baths - (Sleeps 4-6)

Whether traveling with family or friends, my two-bedroom townhouse condominium is a perfect place to stay. Located within easy walking distance of town, the condo gives you the option of dividing your day into periods of activity and periods of relaxation--some time to shop and some time to relax in the hot tub which is available to guests in any of the 8 units of the condominium.

By staying at My Alpine Place, you will be able to start your days at your leisure with breakfast in a charming, fully equipped kitchen (still in your robe with your bed-hair if you do mornings as I do). We leave a guest package in the kitchen--enough for you to start your day - and there is a convenience store very near-by. If you have collected laundry during your travels, you will find a washer and dryer in a utility closet in the kitchen.

When you are ready, Leavenworth is a 10-minute stroll away. If you have children, it may take longer as you pass Icicle Junction on your way, a favorite stop for my granddaughters. My young one likes the rides; my teen prefers the spa. Icicle Junction, the town pool, and the local library are the areas set up to provide activities for children. You pass all three in the short walk to town. We have WiFi but you can check email at the library if you wish. The librarian will provide a guest pass for ½ hour on the library computers.

Enjoy the surrounding landscape as you walk. It did indeed inspire the development of this Bavaria themed town. Across the street from the condo you will find Osprey Rafting, with great rafting trips. Waterfront Park with its great trails and birding is also within walking distance of the condo.

If you decide to take the car out of the carport, you have a great selection of outdoor activities. Winery tours are one option. While local wineries are all represented in Leavenworth at the various tasting rooms, driving to their locations is a different experience. Icicle Ridge Winery in Peshastin has lovely grounds with weekend music, paired dining experiences and child friendly day tours. Silvara, located outside of Leavenworth, has a lovely location and award winning red wines. Wedge Mountain has award winning white wines. Check out your options at the tasting rooms and then take to the road for a day.

If you're more interested in outdoor activities, hiking trails abound. Serious hikers and/or backpackers will need to file planned trips with the forest service, but day hikers have endless options. Like to fish? Take a picnic and head to Fish Lake. Or Lake Wenatchee.

Evenings are quiet here. Restaurants remain open, and you can choose your spot based on your palate. If pizza is on the menu, I recommend the Leavenworth Pizza Co (894 US Highway 2). You may eat there or order take out and eat in the comfort of your kitchen. If you are interested in a fine dining experience with locally sourced, sustainable foods on their menu, you will find that as well. You face a problem of overchoice--which is not a bad problem.

If you wish evening entertainment, you will find that several of the restaurants offer live entertainment. Certainly, you should consider going to the theater while staying here. Look on line and buy your tickets in advance. I have seen The Sound of Music several times. It is well done, and it always sells out. There are outdoor and indoor theater venues as you prefer. OR spend a quiet evening in the hot tub — a personal favorite — a time to enjoy the wonderful night skies. The hot tub/picnic area is for use by those staying in the Icicle Condominiums (8 units), but often you will have the area to yourselves.

About Catherine Berman

I am a retired school teacher. While I live in California, I grew up in Leavenworth. I have a second property off of Icicle Road, a home set on a 5 acre site, surrounded by trees that my dad planted in the 1970s. I visit Leavenworth regularly as I have family here. Indeed, should you need help while staying at the condo, you have contact information for my cousin who lives in town.

Catherine Berman purchased this condo in 2008

Why Catherine Berman chose Central Cascade Mountains

I bought the condo because of its proximity to town. I find many advantages to lodging within walking distance of my destination. I can take downtime as I wish-- as can those with whom I'm travelling. If travelling with children, it's possible to take a break. Not everyone has to have the same agenda. It's just easier.

Great place close to downtown/uptown Leavenworth.

  • 4 of 5

This place was great for 2 couples. It's a little pricier than a hotel room but having the kitchen made it worth it. This place is nothing fancy but it gives you a nice place to hang with friends after shopping and dinner in Leavenworth. Communication with Carolyn was easy. No issues. It's a bit too far to walk to downtown Leavenworth, in my opinion, just FYI.

Was just as advertised.

Very well equipped and maintained property. Close in to town. Too cold and wet for us to walk to town but otherwise very walkable . Suited our needs perfectly! Quickly able to reach Carolyn for questions.

Nice and Cozy Condo in Leavenworth

  • 5 of 5

For my birthday this year my husband and I along with a couple friends decided to get away to one of our favorite towns for a weekend. We usually come in the spring/summer and camp so since this was in January we decided to spring for a condo. After reviewing the description and reviews on this rental we decided it was the one for us, and we are really happy!! The place was very clean, well stocked and the beds were comfortable too! The property has a semi-public hot tub (shared between 8 condos I believe), but it was not super busy so we got to enjoy some time there to our selves. I will say in the winter I wouldn't want to walk to downtown (although we easily could), but it's only a couple minute drive. All in all I would definitely reccomend this property, and Leavenworth in general! You won't be disappointed.

Great!

Six of us stayed here and had a great time and a great experience! It's a pretty far walk to town especially when it's cold out but other than that it was great and we really enjoyed our stay at this cute condo!

Leavenworth is a storybook town inspired by the surrounding landscape. Under the blue skies of spring, summer and fall it is lush with flowers. In winter, costumes, early snowfall, children sledding in the park and Old World architecture appeal to visitors like the fantasies on holiday cards. For me, the town is a reminder of how much effort exists between the vision and the reality. The park of my childhood was simply a lawn, not even a necessarily well kept one. The buildings along Main Street housed a pharmacy, a hotel, a hardware, and a collection of bars. Now, as I enjoy presentations in the park, I remember my Dad helping to build that park gazebo. I knew the merchants who borrowed to convert 1920’s buildings into the magical town you see. As you enjoy the festivals, the food, the shops, try to imagine the courage required to borrow enough money to actually make a dream come true.

Other Activities: shopping, kayaking, boating, snowboarding, snowmobiling, wildlife viewing, health/beauty spa, miniature golf
