This is the story of Merry Canyon Lodge - one family’s dream to build a remote lodge above the Bavarian Theme town of Leavenworth in the alp-like mountains of Washington State; where they and guests can build memories to last a lifetime.
The dream began when the family attended the annual Christmas Lighting festival. Visitors from around the country and world, sing carols in the fluffy falling snow as millions of lights burst into color, generating smiles and gasps of joy.
From Merry Canyon it is just 11 miles to the village center. Make your way down a winding road, past farms, trees and the famous Northern Pacific Railway.
The family wanted privacy, peace and quiet, while also being close enough to the restaurants and shops. The desire to be apart of the frequent music, dance and art fun within Leavenworth was important to maintain.
“I don’t know how the owners found this incredible spot. Nearby but far from Leavenworth” – Joseph from Seattle.
The exquisite Merry Canyon Lodge was built with all the comforts of a home, blended seamlessly with the touches of the forest life that city dwellers yearn for. From country furniture to a bubbling hot tub, here guests can get away like never before.
The large living room looks out at the country side through towering windows. Visitors can lounge in the comfortable leather furniture while enjoying the country side view. A large free standing wood stove (stocked with wood), is placed in the corner, keeping you warm while relaxing.
Just to the side, a large pine dining room table has room for an entire family. It sits adjacent to the large functional kitchen.
The kitchen has most every pot and pan, cutlery and little touches too. Gourmet cooks will be right at home. Your entire family will enjoy a meal complimented with quality table/flatware.
The lodge is filled with log and pine furniture – beds, cabinets, tables, hand rails and stairs. All of which was made by hand, by craftsmen. Behind the stove, you'll notice river rock lining the walls.
There are three bedrooms each with a queen bed, quality linens, plump pillows and privacy. The owners insisted on luxury even here in the country.
There is a large flat panel television, along with cable connection and a land-line phone. A land-line phone?! Indeed, because Merry Canyon is outside most mobile phone services. (Another way guests know you are someplace special.)
“It is clear the owners loved building this house and love living here. We want to come back every year.” -Robert and Roberta, Tacoma WA
Some guests are so enthralled with Merry Canyon Lodge, they fail to ever leave the spacious 20 acres on which Merry Canyon Lodge sits.
But others make quick trips to town for gourmet food, gracious stores and gregarious activities – like river rafting, outdoor theatre, daily concerts of every repertoire.
Some guests bring snow mobiles and head directly onto the trails that run for hundreds of miles through the Cascade Mountain. Others choose to cross country ski right out the doors of Merry Canyon Lodge, or drive West to superb downhill skiing at Stevens Pass.
The story of the Merry Canyon Lodge is just starting. The family now invites guests to visit and enjoy a stunning mountain lodge where they create memories and stories of their own for family and friends.

The house is very nice
The house is very nice and is a lovely log cabin. The setting in the woods is lovely. It is a bit far from town so please take that into consideration.
Amazing place to stay
Amazing place to stay. Our family was so sad to leave and could have stayed a lot longer. Plenty to do at the cabin.
Wonderful amenities. Loved the heated entryway and heated pad before getting in the hot tub. Would not have changed a thing!
Great detailed info provided was much appreciated.
Thank you for staying with us, we would love to host you again - Lenny
