About Sandy

Ted and Sandy have vacationed in Leavenworth since we first met 30 years ago. It's was always our favorite getaway for the wonderful sun we have here. Living in Western Washington for our whole lives we began coming to Leavenworth more and more every year for the sunny weather, and all the fun activities and festivals year round. Finally, in 2000, we bought our property here on the Wenatchee River and used it as our getaway until 2005 when we began building Haus Hanika. Finished in 2007, we moved here full time and decided to share our wonderful spot on the River as a Bed and Breakfast so that others could enjoy this beautiful area as well. We know you'll love it here as we do!

Sandy purchased this chalet in 2007

Why Sandy chose Central Cascade Mountains

We chose Haus Hanika location because it is so close to town, but gives you the feeling of being in nature. The River and all the wildlife is so relaxing but you are so close to Downtown Leavenworth (just one mile).

What makes this chalet unique

Our goal is for you to have complete privacy and to feel like you've really had a break from it all. We are available for anything you want or need, but leave you alone for your 'down time'. That's why we provide your breakfast in your suite already when you arrive so that you can wake up and just relax in the morning!

Guestbook comments from the owner

average rating of 5.0 based on 17 reviews


  • 5 of 5

Great view of the river with friendly, prompt service. The in-room waffle making supplies were a great touch! River access was great and managed to see 2 deer run past early in the morning. Will definitely stay here again when in Leavenworth!

Relaxation Supreme!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to relax! We're traveling across country and have been hiking and biking everyday. Haus Hanika was a great place to just relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery. This B&B sits literally on the edge of a beautiful river. We sat all day long beside the river and watched the tubers and kayakers float the river. We stayed just two nights but we were wishing we'd booked it for more. The Black Bear Suite has everything a person would need: very comfortable bed, jetted tub, and a wonderful breakfast which you prepare yourself whenever you're ready to do so. Eating our Bavarian waffles on our private porch... oh my goodness, wonderful food and beautiful scenery ... a combination we won't soon forget. Oh, and by the way, the town of Leavenworth is fabulous -- everything is decorated in a Bavarian style -- very quaint and enjoyable.

We will definitely stay here again!

Haus Hanika in Leavenworth

  • 5 of 5

There is no need to look for another rental. Haus Hanika B&B is a wonderful place to stay. From the time you arrive until you depart Ted and Sandy have your comfort in mind. The peaceful patio with the Wenatchee river just yards away is the best. You're only 3 minutes from downtown Leavenworth. What is not to like about this property. Two thumbs up.

A respite from our busy life in the city

  • 5 of 5

The location is wonderful, on a quiet stretch of the Wenatchee river, and the unit had its own divided patio to sit and enjoy drinks or a lovely breakfast. Additional chairs are located in multiple points down towards the river, giving plenty of options. The room was very clean, everything in working order and well appointed. Small, but very workable. A jetted tub and freestanding shower complement the full bath.

Breakfast consists of a number of options, all provided in the room ahead of time. Granola, a fruit and muffin basket, milk, orange juice, and batter for use in the waffle maker all provided. We tried our hand at the waffles, with their blueberry syrup, the first morning, and they came out great.

The Hanika's are both gracious hosts, checking in on us when we came through, offering to restock anything (too much already, so we kindly passed) and giving recommendations for hiking trails in the area.

It was so lovely here, we spent more time there than expected, making for late mornings, but a wonderfully relaxing stay. Highly recommended!

The property is immaculately maintained and beautifully decorated while keeping a comfy, cozy feeling. The views of the Wenatchee River are plentiful, and the chalet makes you feel like you're tucked into a village in Bavaria. We loved it!
