About Scott Chamberlin
I'm a Merchant Seaman, semi retired now. I have worked in many locations around the world, which is reflected in some of the art work in the house.
Scott Chamberlin purchased this House in 1982
Why Scott Chamberlin chose Leavenworth
My parents built this house and the one next door in the early 70's when there were only a handful of houses on Shore St.
What makes this House unique
This property consists of 2.5 acres with 600' of river frontage. Most of the property is wooded and I maintain it as a wildlife refuge. The property across the river, because of waterway regulations, does not and will not have any structures, so it also serves as a de facto wildlife refuge. As a consequence, there is often a lot of wildlife. It is not at all unusual to see deer in the yard. Occasionally one will be lucky enough to see a bear or coyote as well. For those who like birds, it is a wonderful location where you can see a wide variety of songbirds, waterfowl, eagles, hawks and ospreys. There is access to the river right off the spacious deck, for kayaking, rafting, wading, or fishing (in season). In a couple of hours (depending on the river height) you can raft or tube to town. In spite of the feeling of seclusion, you are only a little over two miles from downtown Leavenworth, an easy bike ride, or even a pleasant walk away.

Great view. Great location. Comfortable.
As others have said, it is not a fancy house but it is comfortable. It is in a great location and the owner was very helpful and accommodating. The views of the river are excellent.
Picturesque property with frosted trees, flowing river and some wildlife. The master bathroom needs
Everyone enjoyed our stay here!
Good fit for our needs
We loved staying at this house while we were in the area participating in a dog show. The house was clean, cozy and comfortable in every respect. It is in a quiet location, far from the Leavenworth traffic and tourists. It is in a good area for walking a dog. The large yard is lovely and the deck looking out on the river was pleasant. The beds and furniture were comfy and well maintained; everything in the house worked well. Scott responded very promptly when we needed to secure the outside garbage after a nocturnal visit from a bear.
The one thing that would have made this house better for us is a fully fenced area in the very large (lovely, grassy) yard. With the river so close (and running very swiftly) and evidence of large wildlife (bears) in the vicinity, we did not feel comfortable leaving our dog outside off the leash, even for a minute. It was not much fun having to walk around the yard in the dark, cold, mud and rain at night with the dog so that he could do his business. A small, fenced area adjacent to the house would have made it much more secure and comfortable for all of us. I think parents of children would also appreciate a secure fenced area, considering the moderately steep bank down to the river right in front of the house.
We would definitely stay here again. Wonderful location!
We enjoyed our stay. Very comfortable. Nice seeing the wildlife; i.e., deer, geese, ducks; goats and chickens in the neighborhood. the place was clean and nice how the gathering room was at the other end of the house. When one was sleeping, with the bedrooms at the other end, nothing could be heard, except the loud furnace. Loved how the icicle trail was not too far away--great walk. Thank you.
Not fancy but very comfortable and relaxing
Our family has a yearly get together, this year we decided on Leavenworth. The rest of the family are campers we decided to rent a house for the long weekend. Scott's house was perfect! The location could not have been better. The creek was low and sandy beach in front was terrific for my 4 and 6 year old grandson to play in, the large yard was very nice and the house while not fancy had a great deck and everything that we needed was provided. We will be back in the future.
We strive to provide a comfortable and homey atmosphere amid a rich natural environment. Most of our guests are delighted with frequent visits from local wildlife and easy access to town, as well as the numerous recreational activities. We look forward to seeing you again.
Rafted to town. Barbecued on the deck. Played in the river. The house is not so luxurious that one worries about it. But it is very comfortable with nice artwork and a fully-equipped kitchen.
Rates & Availability
Additional information about rental rates
One dog is allowed if well behaved. But the dog is not to be left in the house when nobody is there. A run is provided to secure the dog when necessary. You are required to clean up after the dog. If we have to do it, there will be an additional fee of $125 ( we really don't want to clean up dog crap ). Call for directions to the house, if needed. Please let us know if you have young children so that we can prepare the house as necessary. We don't provide rafts or bikes, but encourage you to bring yours. You won't regret it.
