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.
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.

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.
We have always enjoyed stopping in Leavenworth, but had never stayed there before. This VRBO was close to the activities in town and well maintained. The owner responded quickly with comments and provided a good service. I would stay there again.
We had a great time at the My Alpine Place Condo. The condo was well kept and a short walk to town. The hot tub needed a little maintenance, but all in all, it was a great experience.
House is as described, clean and a reasonably short distance from town.
We had a wonderful stay for Oktoberfest this year, the condo location and lay out are great! There are Oktoberfest shuttles near by offered, but we never even needed used them cause the walk is not bad at all. Owner and manger are great to work with and very helpful. We have already re-booked for next year, cheers!
We had a great stay! We were in town cor wine tastings and relaxation and your condo assisted with a fabulous weekend! Very clean, comfortable and close to town. Thank you again for some much needs R and R!
We loved the location of the condo! We used the hot tub at night and no one was around. It was over 100 degrees every day and the A/C worked wonderfully. It was a little further from town than I thought, but a do-able walk. It's 20 minutes to the far side of town for sure. I would definitely stay here again! Perfect for families or couples.
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
