Lodge, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 2-12)
Michigan native. Enjoy the outdoors! Love nature and my canine Aussie - Abby. In 1980, I set out from Michigan to Washington, a 2,400 mile cross country hike in search of the perfect location for me to call home. I found it here in Leavenworth. I also found that inn keeping is my passion. In 1983, I started my first lodging business. In 2005, River Meadows LLC was born and Riverdance Lodge opened which later expanded to include Meadowdance Lodge and Meadowdance Chalet. One of the things that I enjoy is that I have my own salmon hole at Riverdance Lodge to share with my guests. I feel very fortunate to have found my home in a magical location....come share the dance with me.
Greg purchased this House in 2006
Why Greg chose Leavenworth
In response to a for sale ad in the newspaper, my first visit to the property was in the spring of 1988. When I found the property, there was only a primitive dirt road. It was early morning as I walked through the rough trail with my six-month old son Josh on by back and my golden lab "Honey". I remember asking myself if we were at the right place. We wound down through the thick stand of Cottonwood trees and various wild bushes when suddenly the trail opened to an incredibly expansive and breathtaking meadow. I realized that I was standing at the confluence of the Wenatchee and Icicle Rivers. I stood in awe in that early morning light gazing at the surrounding snow capped mountains where the two rivers met. I knew that I had found a special place. I'll always remember that day, Josh gurgling with laughter as we skipped stones on the river and Honey fetching sticks...I didn't waste any time purchasing what is now Riverdance Lodge. Now, more than 20 years later and all the dancing my family have experienced on this river, we offer to share this dance with you. -Greg
What makes this House unique
It's Not a House, It's an Experience! You’re comfort and privacy is my first priority. Your fun starts when making reservations. As the owner, I can assist you in planning your retreat/vacation. You won’t have the usual concerns of where to go for fun or who has the best safety record. You can relax and let the scenery go by or for those looking for a little more adventure there are lots of activities right out the front door. Photo opportunities are everywhere, eagle, deer and bear are common sightings. Hang out at the rivers edge for the next critter experience or kick back on the deck and let the next photo come to you.

Very nice property for the 8 adults for family weekend. Property is beautiful. Very spacious, excellent kitchen, nice sauna and not tub.
Very well taken care of property. The owner is extremely accommodating. Lots of space inside and out so your party does not feel cramped. If you visit during the spring and early summer the fishing is right there on the bank.
Quiet hours are from 8pm to 8am for the area. Noise from inside did not carry to the outside. If there was any issues, the owner was just a few minutes away.
Great property management!
Had difficulty getting a final head count of all our friends to come for the trip. Greg was so helpful in getting our trip reduced due to less people. Had multiple conversations trying to get everything right and Greg took care of everything! Dealing with Greg was significantly better than trying to get information through home away. House was very clean and welcoming. Only thing that caught my attention was the central air duct covers could use a dusting. Would absolutely stay again or any of Greg’s other properties!
Thanks Raymond for the kind words.
The vent just made the priority cleaning list!
Hope to see you again soon
Gorgeous home and property
This home is beautiful and very well-appointed. There were a couple home hiccups (had to reset the WiFi router each day and somehow the shower downstairs didn’t produce water on our second day although it was fine the first?) but nothing that interrupted a truly lovely stay.
Big enough for everyone
This is our second time staying at riverdance lodge. Great location, property, and the house has all of the amenities. We will stay again!
Beautiful property along the Icicle River. The sauna is fantastic. Would definitely stay here again.
