This is great for that romantic getaway weekend, eagle's nest is perched above the wenatchee river and over looking the valley with big Jim mountain in the background.
Eagle's nest has the best of everything: 10/min to fish lake, 25/min to Leavenworth, 10/min to bike, hiking, horse riding trails and so on. We also have sizable DVD library filled with romantic movies.
Eagles Nest is one of the last affordable getaway cabins on VRBO! your basic no frills romantic get-away.
This cabin has beautiful views to offer and much privacy. It is indeed a rustic studio cabin, perfect for an adult couple. We enjoyed our stay and because we have stayed in small cabins before we were pretty well prepared and not surprised by the size. The pictures depict this little gem perfectly. What you see is what you get. The bed is a double not a queen and the bedding was flannel and smelled nice and fresh. We found a second coverlet up stairs in the small loft and with that and the one on our bed we were nice and cozy. There is a stand alone portable oil heater along with a built in electric heater. We pretty much stayed warm with normal clothing even with the outdoor temps ranging from 8 degrees to 20 degrees. There is a gas bbq and we were able to grill a nice steak.
The kitchen has a few of the basics, plates, bowls, cups, cooking pots and pans, eating utensils, knives, cutting board, toaster (tends to burn the toast, so watch it closely), coffee pot and microwave. Dish towels and soap are provided, but bring your own papertowels and wine glasses if you bring wine (there is a nice bottle opener). The bathroom is very small, but it fits in perfectly with the cabin size. There are fresh towels provided, hand soap and shampoo. Hot water is very hot and it doesn't take long to come through the faucets as very hot. The shower was clean and adequate.
We did contact the owner as the electric heater didn't seem to be working properly. He promptly replied, offering directions to the circuit breaker in the event that we had blown a fuse. We hadn't, it just took this little heater a while to decide to work. It does shut off once it reaches a certain temp, but restarts as well when needed. Steve was very pleasant to talk with and very concerned about our comfort. He advised us to contact him any time during our stay if we needed anything.
The furniture in the living area, yes, is hard, but we managed wonderfully by rearranging the two chairs and ottomans so that we could look out the sliding glass window at the snow cover trees. There are 3 nice size pillows on the love seat so those did help to soften our seating.
Overall we had a lovely stay and enjoyed our visit to Eagles Nest.
If you visit in the winter make sure you have 4 wheel driver or at the very minimum chains. Eagles Nest is located to the side of a pretty steep hill and although they maintain the roads very well, it can be a challenge to get up or down this hill.
My husband and I are expecting twins in the next couple months and we wanted to do a cute cozy little romantic get away in Leavenworth area. It was a small but cozy cabin and perfect for 2 people. Living room furniture was rock solid so we mostly sat on the bed. It was a quick 20-25 minute drive to Leavenworth. The views are awesome and we woke up to snow the last day! It was a nice get away to spend out final months as just husband and wife.
Needed a place at the last min.....great little place!
Was not a queen bed as advertised! A small full size only. If you are okay with that, and don't mind the twisty mountain drive, the view is fantastic! Could use a more comfy love seat. Small cabin feel, was enough room for two. Nice and quiet.
The view was awesome! ....the pictures don't do it justice!... my wife and I don't have a lot of money so when we saw this we jumped on it! Thanks for such an affordable little getaway gem that we could get away to. The only thing was there wasn't much propane so we used up the last of it on the BBQ.
There is so much to do here!
said one of our guests!she said of the Lake Wenatchee/Plain area,it abounds with activity no matter what time of year. From snowmobiling,fishing(and ice), skiing (stevens pass is just 25/min), to golfing, boating, hiking, horse back riding, and so much more. Leavenworth is just 20 minutes away down the chumstick,
or just walk the many trails right outside your front door!
Most of our guests just enjoy sitting on the deck listing to the sound of the river below and taking in the sweeping view
