About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Greet the morning sun as it rises across the river and warms your summer breakfast table. At the close of your dream day, the sun sinks behind the mountains, as the river courses by and awaits the rise of the moon..

Multiple decks and windows look down on the Wenatchee river and and out to a forested ridge at the back, Your stay at the River House provides you with contemplative moments and endless outdoor recreational opportunities just minutes away; enjoy therapeutic spa time at Aspen Spa (at Sleeping Lady just minutes away), the Leavenworth Golf Course, downtown 'Bavaria' shopping, winery tours and tasting, Icicle Brewing Company, coffee roasters, restaurants and bakeries, live performances, and of course Leavenworth's nationally renowned festivals.

The recreational mecca of the Icicle Valley and its river unfold around you. From the deck, watch commercial rafters and kayakers shoot by, or join them. In the appropriate low water season, SUP board and swim where the river widens into a pool, right in front of the house. Watch and listen to the salmon jump, as they rest up for their final and short journey to the upper Icicle River and the Leavenworth fish hatchery, which you can visit!***

The house has exposed and screened decks to suit any day’s needs. Golden hued pine covers the interior ceilings, and provides a wainscoting in the central living area. Two master size suites grace the house; one upstairs, which shares a lovely tile/stone bathroom with a third bedroom. The second master is downstairs and has a wall mounted, flat screen television, and private bath with shower and a separate non-jetted soaking tub set in a tile deck.

All three bedrooms have queen beds made up with luxury, boutique linens, and comforters and pillow that are 'allergen free'. There is a fold down futon in the sitting/office area upstairs. This room has a nice view to the front yard /river and forested area.

The kitchen can accomadate numerous cooks and visitors. It is equipped for those that love to cook and then kick back and create memories with family and friends.

Minutes from the River house, outdoor activities abound, hike, climb, mountain bike, cycle and much more, or stretch your legs and take a 20-30 minute stroll along the Icicle into town.

**The River House will no longer offer a hot tub.

***Sadly the river is closed to fishing in front of the house. When the season is open (always check, as big fish equals big fines) you can walk down the driveway and fish downriver of the bridge. Check the regulations that accompany your fishing license.

About Tambra

We raised our son & daughter in Leavenworth. The daily & seasonal opportunities for endless outdoor adventures provided for great shared memories and laughter And provided our family with broad life skills, a great love of nature, community, and cultural offerings often unknown to a small area.

We've recently retired from 25+ years of business in Leavenworth, and now split our time between our Leavenworth community and Mexico, a favorite family travel spot where we love to board sail/SUP/snorkel and enjoy the tranquil beauty.

We hope your visit to our River house leaves you rejuvenated and full of wonderful memories, shared adventures, love and laughter. The Zimmermanns

Tambra purchased this house in 2005

Why Tambra chose Central Cascade Mountains

Because of the areas diversity, we own a home in the upper Icicle Valley off the grid (with alternative power), 15 minutes from our River House. We love both homes, and are not ready to give either up, so we now split our time between the upper Icicle home and Mexico, and offer our 'town' home for others to share.

What makes this house unique

Tranquility and nature, yet minutes from town and all it has to offer, as well as a mirad of outdoor recreational opportunities.

This is a home anyone would be proud to own. Great construction and immaculate on the inside.

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted by a deer when we pulled up to the driveway which thrilled our grandchildren. The home was spacious and very clean and inviting. The kitchen was well stocked with most items you need to prepare meals. All of the beds were comfortable and there were no complaints. It was too cold to spend much time outside but the back deck was nice and we could only imagine how great it would be to sit out there and listen to the river. The neighborhood was very peaceful. We will be making this a part of our yearly family vacation but we will make sure we stay longer than two nights next time! We may consider a summer visit as well. We loved everything about this house and the owner was a pleasure to work with.

Wonderfully cozy rental.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at the River House. It was the perfect meeting place for a few of us coming from Seattle and one friend coming from Winthrop. The house had all the comforts of home, plus more! We would definitely rent again when we come to Leavenworth! Many thanks to the owners!

We'd definitely stay there again.

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 days here in the snow and loved every minute of it. The house is spacious and beautiful and has a wonderful view of the river. When we arrived, it was decorated for the holiday (Christmas) - such a nice touch. We had everything we needed and then some. My in-laws kept commenting that it was the best renting experience they'd ever had.

Comfortable and lovely family home with plenty of room and amenities.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year staying at this wonderful home less than a five minute drive to downtown Leavenworth. We love the serene setting and space for our family to spend time together, while at the same time being close enough to all the amenities Leavenworth and the surrounding area has to offer.

We came back! Lovely place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay, we may be back for a third next year! House comfortably fit 6 adults and a couple of small children, it is close enough to town to be convenient but far enough you feel secluded. Lovely home, well kept, clean, beautiful views overlooking the river.

A cabin feel with an eclectic decorum. Beautiful river views and very peaceful.

  • 4 of 5

Great views, definitely not walking distance to town.

We had 3 couples and never felt we were on top of each other as we all had our own space.

The kitchen was our gathering spot and it was a wonderful. We would have loved having more than one wine glass and more bar stools at the high counter would have been nice as well.

Owner's Response: We're pleased that you enjoyed your stay and appreciate you taking time to send in a review! Thank you. I'm sorry you missed the wine glasses. There are a set of nine cut crystal wine glasses and a matching set of liqueur glasses in the hanging glass cabinet bay next to the refrigerator. I do need to look around and see if I can find one more matching stool, as that would be all the room at that bar niche. Thank you for your suggestion. Have a lovely winter! Warmly, Tambra
