Our annual girls trip was a blast as we chose this location due to the bells & whistles listed at this cabin. Plenty of bedrooms, bathrooms and space to play cards around the table! Kitchen is fully equipped with pretty much everything you need to cook a family style meal. The hot tub is an added bonus and used by us after attempting to float on chilly Lake Wenatchee and with our morning coffees! The decor and extra touches , like the robes, make this cabin very homey and cozy, would love to visit again in a winter wonderland!!! Thank you and Cheers!!
My sister and i rented this cabin for a few days and loved it. It was clean and cozy. The furniture was great , kitchen had everything we needed. We will be back next year!
Absolutely stunning cabin. It was a home away from home experience. We will be back next year.
The host is easy to work with and the cabin is roomy and comfortable. The experience and space are true to the descriptions provided.
We had such a good time! This place was very clean, the kitchen had everything we needed and the hot tub was lovely. We spent alot of time just hanging out on the big wrap around porch. There are close neighbors but you still feel secluded. And the beds!! So comfortable. We would happily stay here again.
A great quiet 4th of July, just like we wanted having a dog. Nice location In the beautiful trees. Close to Leavenworth for a a family game of miniature golf. A nice warm hot tub for the evening. Would like to go back in winter to use the fireplace and enjoy the snow.
The cabin has everything you need for a woodsy, pine scented, weekend getaway. Kathy was totally responsive. The hit tub is divine. Highly recommended for couples or families with or without pupsters!
Our group of 8 overall loved our stay at this cozy cabin! The kitchen was well stocked, home felt welcoming, and the hot tub was the perfect way to end our nights. Kathy had bath and beach towels available for us to use, which we all appreciated. Unfortunately, the master bedding was filled with sand and dog hair, to the point where it was uncomfortable to get into without brushing the bed off and was clearly not washed between the last guests and ourselves. A few of the dishes also had some grime in them so we made sure to always clean them before use. Aside from the cleaning notes, the stay was amazing and we appreciated the quick communication from Kathy any time we had a question. We would recommend whoever cleans the home between guests double check the bedding and dishes, and don't just trust that the last guests stripped the beds (since they clearly didn't). Usually this wouldn't have been as big of a deal for us, but we were already wary to travel due to Covid-19 and the gritty/hairy bed made us feel dirty and frustrated. We expected to feel clean and safe, especially because the listing specifically says "WE ARE FOLLOWING CLEANING GUIDELINES TO PROTECT OUR GUESTS." We came to bed too late the first night to do anything about the gritty sheets (because we didn't see them until we were getting into bed) but we washed the bedding first thing in the morning so that our second night was much more pleasant. Kathy- if you would like pictures for your records I am happy to send them to you via text!
We wanted a weekend away with our three boys and pup. This property was just what we needed. It was the perfect amount of room for us and had everything we needed. We loved the location of the lot as it felt secluded even though there were other houses around. We enjoyed days at the Lake Wenatchee and the Leavenworth Village and nights in the hot tub and making smores. This place was very cozy. Can't wait to come back again!
It was a wonderful cozy woods getaway. Quiet, relaxing environment. Perfect for our family of 5 plus dog.
We were very impressed with the house. There was my wife and myself as well as our 4 kids and our 4 dogs. Plenty of space. We will definitely be renting again in the future
This is a very well kept cabin offering access to tons of winter fun (close to SnoParks, Lake Wenatchee, Leavenworth and Stevens Pass). Kitchen is well-stocked and cabin (including hot tub) were really clean, despite having back to back guests. We had a little trouble with the fireplace - I'm used to a wood stove, and the flue was a little tricky, but this was not a huge issue. I think the listing is accurate, although in hindsight I would have preferred a bit more space / privacy to let our dog and kid roam. Otherwise, a very nice stay. Thanks to Kathy for sharing her home.
We had a great time staying at the cabin with friends and our dogs. The cabin is less than half an hour to both Leavenworth and Stevens’ Pass, so we had a great location for each. The neighborhood was quiet and snow was plowed, just not a lot of lights. The cabin was just as expected - no complaints! And no issues with our security deposit refund. We’d definitely stay again if we’re back in the area - summer or winter!
This place was delightful. The beds were all super comfortable, there was plenty of firewood, easy drive to Leavenworth. The icing on the cake was that there were food and water bowls for our dog. This weekend was just the four of us (two grown ups and two kiddos), but next time we'll bring friends. We will be back!
Perfect fit for the family. Had an amazing time. Played in the snow, played in Leavenworth, played at the sno park. The beds are super comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped and having 3 bathrooms was ideal. Cant wait to do it again.
Loved this place. Perfect winter getaway. Make sure you have all wheel drive or 4x4 for winter retreat (if snow is expected). Well equipped kitchen. Set back from road, so felt isolated.
My family and I really enjoyed our stay at Kathy’s cabin. So much was provided that it felt like a home away from home which also made it so comfortable and easy to occupy. We also so appreciated all the amenities from sleds to providing wood to bathrobes and much more. The best for us was that we could be there as a whole family that included our dogs. We enjoyed so much this opportunity that they could be with us. We had complete privacy, space to walk around outside and were near so many activities. I highly recommend Pine River Retreat Cabin. It was a retreat.
Our stay in this cabin was relaxing and perfect for Christmas celebration. The added Christmas decorations gave it a holiday spirit!
Kathy's place was a great getaway for our family and close to Leavenworth. We really appreciated that the house was decorated with a Christmas tree, lights and all the other trimmings. Thank you for your hospitality and sharing your home with us.
We have purposely booked this property because of past experience. This time was our last. Property was dirty and supplies were limited. Hot tub had rocks and debris. When we informed Kathy the owner she was quick to respond and we told her we already bought new stuff and kids cleaned out the hot tub. She still send property management out and he informed us that everything looked good. We informed him we took care of everything already and we were sorry he was called out. He stated, “I am going to document this with photos as people try and get discounts when nothing is wrong”. I informed him that we don’t want a discount and we only informed Kathy because our past experience was nothing like this before. I also am frustrated that we informed Kathy that we already took care of everything. It really ruined the way we felt about this home and not to book again. I also emailed Kathy to inform her of our encounter and frustration plus I wanted to be clear we do not want any discount if that is what she felt we were trying to do. Not once did I ask or request reimbursement or any discount when I initially informed how dirty it was. The bathroom to that was attached to one of the smaller rooms literally had pine needles and other debris falling from the ceiling fan. Not one bathroom fan except master bath worked and I think I understand why. Just frustrated how much we enjoyed this home from the past and now we won’t be coming back.
The property was perfect for our family - the hot tub was hot, the fireplace was cozy, and the beds were beyond comfortable. We will be back!
Kathy is incredibly responsive she literally responds to you within minutes of your inquiry. The home was exactly what the online add showed it to be, adorably decorated, very clean and very well equipped for all your needs. We went for Thanksgiving and had everything we needed to cook a full dinner. The home is extremely quiet and very well layed out for multiple families. Perfect distance to downtown Leavenworth and local amenities. There is a nice covered hot tub that was nice and hot as our temperature was very cold outside. The covered deck is perfect to sit on outdoors and there are many places to walk in the neighborhood. I would stay at Kathy's properties again.
Very comfy cabin. Check in process extremely easy. Beds very comfortable. Decorations cute and homey. A bit of a drive from Leavenworth, but not far enough to make it inconvenient. Hot tub a wonderful plus. Would recommend!
We had 6 family members stay at the cabin for Oktoberfest. About 15 minutes from Leavenworth very convenient. Love that the cabin has 3 full bathrooms! The fireplace is very cozy! The beds are beyond comfy! Highly recommend this property!!
We had a wonderful weekend getaway here. The three bedrooms and three bathrooms were perfect for our family. Everything you could need is already at the cabin including games, cards, inflatables (both for summer and winter) as well as books and a small movie library. Kitchen is well stocked with plenty of dishes, pots and pans , baking sheets and even a crockpot and champagne bucket. Our family's favorite place was the wrap around deck with the pot belly stove where we made s'mores and jiffy pop. 5 min to swimming at Lake Wenatchee and 15-20 min to downtown Leavenworth. Highly recommend!
We came back the second time to enjoy this cozy cabin.
Cabin was clean, comfortable and cute, with plenty of space, and bathrooms for each bedroom. They thought of everything we might need. We would rent this property again whenever we are in the area.
All Good! thanks Kathy
We really enjoyed the time we spent at the cabin. It is so cozy and has everything to enjoy a nice, relaxing time. Will be back for sure.
This house was well stocked: pots, pans, spices, oil, extra garbage bags, tp, paper towels, towels, extra blankets, extra pillows, even extra propane for the grill! Hot tub was great! Plenty of firewood. Stayed here with my wife, her mother, and sister. We loved having 3 bathrooms. It was an easy commute into Leavenworth. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful house. Would definitely rent again
Perfect place to get away with the family or friends. Beautiful cabin, very well kept. Almost asked for another day!
We had family come from around Washington for a nice family get away. The neighborhood felt very safe... Great area to go on an evening walk. The living room, dining room and kitchen were very open which allowed for great evening gathering.
We came to town for my nephews wedding and wanted to stay together so my husband and I as well as my mom and dad and step mom with my niece and nephew stayed here. The cabin was a great place to hang out and my two daughters who live closer came for a game of Mexican Train in the evening. The owner was very quick to respond to any questions and was a pleasure to work with. Thank you Kathleen your hospitality was off the charts. We will definitely keep this and Kathleen’s other properties on our radar as we plan future trips.
The pictures online don't make it justice - the house is really nice and well located. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen well equipped to spend a lovely weekends with friends. It's located less than 30min away from Steven's Pass, making it easy to ski for a few hours in the evening. Would definitely recommend the place for a group of friends!
Everything was perfect! Lovely cabin with easy access to Stevens and Leavenworth!
This was our THIRD stay at this cabin and we stayed 8 nights this time. We skied for 3 days with a relatively quick drive up to Steven's Pass and enjoyed 3 days in Leavenworth and one just relaxing, sledding and playing games at the cabin. Our kids love it and my 4 year old calls it "the cabinet" instead of cabin and he thinks it is ours :) They enjoy their own room and bathroom and the master bedroom is huge and the bed is wonderfully comfortable (and we are picky!). We will definitely be back!
We had another lovely weekend at the Pine River retreat. This was our third family weekend, it’s become an annual tradition now. We love the big hot tub, fireplace, well equipped kitchen, beds and bathrooms for all, and the great location. We spent an afternoon at Lake Wenatchee State Park sledding and walking, another afternoon in Leavenworth, and the rest of the time cozied up in the cabin reading and playing games.
Other than the hot tub needing to be cleaned a little better The house was very clean and nice. well equipped very comfortable. The drive way being a solid sheet of ice had my wife concerned about getting back up out of there. Subaru rocks. Anyway good job Kathy.
Loved the fireplace, hot tub, and cozy beds! Can’t wait to come back.
We stayed with our 2 young children, my parents, and our dog. The cabin is adorable and well appointed, we had everything we could need. The hot tub was nice for after skiing at Stevens. It was a little slick and icy in the driveway but not too bad. Our only other “complaint” was the top bunk of the bunk beds is a little wobbly. We didn’t need to use it for our needs with our group, but for future visitors who plan on using both bunks, just be aware. It’s a great middle point between skiing and Leavenworth, which were our 2 destinations for the weekend. Would definitely rent again!
Everything as advertised. Very comfortable, clean, fully outfitted and spa was awesome. Felt like home.
Met family over Christmas and couldn’t ask for anything more. Cabin was decorated and created the best holiday experience. Our bed was so comfortable too. House was well stocked. Enjoyed the hot tub. Highly recommend!!
Kathy has spared no comfort nor amenity in her exceptionally decorated and equipped woodsy get-away. This place really makes a person feel like all is right with the world. Hot tub, fireplace with plenty of dry wood, super-stocked kitchen, high end beds ... all added up to perhaps one of our best vacation rental experiences ever. We will definitely reserve this property again. Thanks for helping add to a beautiful family Christmas!
This cabin was great, and so cutely decorated for Christmas with moose & bears & 2 Christmas trees! The 3 bedrooms with 3 bathrooms made the stay very comfortable for various adult family members. Everything was very clean, maintained and the host was quick to respond to any questions that we had. It would have been nice to have the TV in the living room be able to play DVDs too, but we just all piled onto the King size bed in the master and watched the movie we brought.
We had an amazing time at the cabin. It was adorable, comfortable, and beautifully maintained. Hopefully we can make this a yearly trip. Thank you.
The cabin is beautifully furnished. Loved each bedroom had a tv and a bathroom. The huge deck was fun to sit on and have the fire going. Close to Wenatchee State Park to hike all the trails.
6 of us were up in Leavenworth for Oktoberfest and rented this little home. It was perfect for our needs, incredibly cozy and adorable decorated thru out. The beds were soooo comfortable, and kitchen fully stocked with all we needed to cook up the groceries we brought along. Thank you!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, it was relaxing . This has been the best cabin in Leavenworth cabin since we have been coming here for the last 10 years
What can I say? The cabin was slightly smaller than expected, but cozy as heck! It was well stocked with most basic essentials- even down to little hotel shampoo bottles and face wash! I was aiming for a "Whoopdy doo!" outta you there. Seriously though, how can you complain about landing a comfortable, affordable, cabin planted on the edge of the great unknown with fishing, hiking, offroading, shooting... Shoot! Dano, just aboot any outdoor-activity that you're into could be at your finger tips next week! In my opinion, staying here felt like my friends - gma's - child, came out to his gma's place with some modernized furnishings/decor. I.e. It's comfortable there; in the same way that staying with the closest people in your life may be. The king bedroom is the cherry on top for sure. Endless pillows n' blankets on Pillow top (or maybe mem foam) mattress. Secluded bathroom, private entrance, fireplace, cable - whoever gets it should be charged a lot more than the rest of you. It's a trulynice place - not outdated or falling apart like so many older homes. Also Loved: the wrap around deck was phenomenally peaceful; being provided a grill and plenty of fuel was very kind of them; and the location is fantastic (considering the # of local boredom killing sights to see/things to claim youre going to do). Lastly, my complaints... First, that bunk bed in the kids/guest bdrm is NOT SAFE. Do Not Sleep On the Top Bunk. One of my friends had to use the couch because of how unstable that is. Kathy, if you're reading this: For the Love of All that is Peaceful Please secure that bunk to the wall and fix the loose bolts. I aint Nostradamous, but I forsee somebody getting hurt. It's only a matter of time before that rocks too far and falls. Second, the hottub was on and set to 98°F when we arrived. Over the course of our first day there it blew a circuit and we didn't get to use it once. I don't think that's fair or proper given what we paid to stay. Third (and final) thing to note is, it's a solid 40 min to Leavenworth. The drive ain't bad but perhaps reconsider if you intend to spend your days out in town. There's nothing more to say other than, Thank You for reading my novel. I genuinely hope this review helps you decide what's best for you! Cheers! 🍻 Yippee Kaiiiyaaay Glampers!
Our family of 6 enjoyed our stay here and found it super comfy, quiet, & well supplied. The location is handy for both Lake Wenatchee & Leavenworth. All the cute cabin decor gives it a lot of character! Would highly recommend.
The cabin was cozy and clean and had all the amenities needed. A short drive to Leavenworth and Lake Wenatchee. I would highly recommend this cabin for a family of 6-8. We would definitely stay there again!
We had a wonderful stay as two couples, one with two little kids. The cabin location is convenient, and we enjoyed local hiking and swimming in rivers and Lake Wenatchee. The cabin is well-stocked, the beds are comfortable, and we had a great time!
This was a very nice place. Enjoyed the atmosphere. Just be aware this property is 20-25 minutes from Leavenworth we thought it was going to be closer. If you want something as a cabin in the mountains this is a perfect place to stay.
The property was beautiful, the cabin was tastefully furnished and very comfy. We had our 3 young grandsons with us and we all had a wonderful time. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to relax, have some fun and recharge the batteries Steve and Mary Adams, Everett Wa.
This cabin was perfect for us, our 2 sons, their wives and one grand. Each family had a nice bedroom and their own bath! Ten minute drive to Lake Wenatchee for fun for kids and about twenty to Leavenworth.
Very clean cabin, has everything you need, loved the hot tub, and outdoor woodstove. Close to hiking trails and only a small drive to Leavenworth. We loved staying here and will definitely be booking it next time we travel to Leavenworth. Also loved it has 3 queen size beds and 3 bathrooms!
The cabin was clean and cozy and the master bedroom was phenomenal! We skied two days, spent a day in Leavenworth and one day of relaxing. There was a TON of snow and the kids played right in the driveway with sleds and toys. So, so much fun...we are coming back next year for sure.
We truly enjoyed our stay at this cabin. It was nicely decorated for the holidays. Very cozy, with a fireplace and enough firewood to keep the fire going. I liked that there was one bathroom for each bedroom. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to make our meals. The property was big enough for the kids to play in the snow. And the stove outside made it so much easier to stay outside in the cold to watch the kids. The hot tub was clean and heated. Great activity to do at the end of a long day. The cabin is close to Leavenworth where you can walk around, do some shopping and enjoy some German food. The owner was responsive and very friendly. We would definitely come back again.
This cabin was wonderful! It was the perfect size for our group of five adults. The location can't be beat for winter sports and visiting Leavenworth. It was decorated for the holidays - so cozy. Kathy was a wonderful and very responsive host. Highly recommended!
We had an absolutely fabulous time at the cabin. So much room, plenty of bathrooms and showers, the hot tub worked perfectly, and we made amazing memories that will last a lifetime!!!
Relaxing on all levels
My wife and I enjoyed her birthday at this cabin. Very festive as the owner had it decorated for Christmas even outside lighting that we found the switch for and enjoyed while at our stay. Everything was clean and comfortable. We loved the fireplace and all the wood we found to use in back of the house. There was nothing that we looked for that we did not find. We did think a safety issue was on the front step, looks like it has settled and the back of the last step is higher than front putting a slant on the whole step. When it is wet or icy it becomes even more of a hazard where guests could fall and get injured. We also thought that the hot tub was great for a hot water soak but the jets we couldn't get to function with adequate pressure to enjoy the jacuzzi. Despite those two things we would definitely return to Pine River!
Shared house with 3 couples, all had plenty of space and personal bathrooms. Common area was very comfortable and adequate for all of us. Very close drive (20 mins) to Leavenworth.
The cabin was cozy, well appointed, and conveniently located outside of Leavenworth. There was plenty of room for two sets of adults and a kid. The kitchen was well appointed by VRBO standards for cooking a big Thanksgiving dinner. Not quite like home, but close enough to work. We were also pleasantly surprised by how Leavenworth is developing... wine tasting rooms, fine dining options, etc. We'd definitely do it again.
Had a great time at the cabin. We will definitely rent again.
Very nice weekend!
This cabin was perfect! We took in Some Oktoberfest activities as Leavenworth was close by. We also hit up some mountain biking trails that were also close by. Great location and great cabin. Would come back again. Thanks Kathy for a great cabin.
Really nice and quiet place close to lake wenatchee and leavenworth, this place make our vaction trip really enjoyable for our family hoping to be back soon to create many more memories, thanks Kathy for all your help and prompt responses.
This cabin is beautiful and well stocked with all amenities. Great central location - close to the lake and Leavenworth. Kathy was very accommodating and responsive. We were a family of 6 and there was more than enough space for all of us to spread out. The cabin was very clean and comfortable. The location is quiet and peaceful. So much to do nearby. I wish we had more time here. I would love to come back here. Highly recommend this cabin....You won't be disappointed!!
This was really cool cabin and we stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed each day at Cabin. Great Rooms, kitchen and good living area to sit talk with families and relax. Really a nice place to stay with family and friends! Will plan to come another time also. Thanks to Kathy for such a beautiful cabin!
We had plenty of room for us all. Comfotable and spacious. Had little extras bathrobs, serving dishes, games, movies... we all liked our stay
We stayed here April 28-30, 2017 and had a great time. Cabin charming and has everything you need. The layout is perfect for families with young kids. Our two five-year-olds were perfectly safe. Once the kids went to bed, their room was just far enough away for the adults to chat comfortably without waking them. The drive to Leavenworth is only 20 minutes. Kathy, the owner, was easy to communicate with and responded quickly to my questions.
We stayed for a weekend and really enjoyed this property. The pictures don't actually do it justice. It's perfect for a long weekend and close to Stevens, Lake Wenatchee and Leavenworth. This place was also bigger than anticipated which was a nice surprise and Kathryn was a great host.
We had a great time. The description matched our experience. Close to Stevens Pass and Leavenworth.
This is a great house. It is comfortable and cozy. The owner clearly took extra care to make it a comfortable/easy place to stay - including things like oil and spices in the kitchen, washing machine soap and a hot tub that's ready to get in as soon as you arrive. We went in the winter to cross country ski. The house is located minutes away from many miles of groomed x-country ski trails. The owner was very responsive and friendly through email.
My family and I had a great weekend at Pine River Retreat. We all agreed it's even cuter than in the pictures and it had everything we needed. We spent an afternoon at Lake Wenatchee and another afternoon in Leavenworth, which were both easily accessible. The rest of the time we loved hanging out by the fire and in the hot tub. We plan to come back!
This is our second year at Kathy's cabin. We take our daughter, son-in-law, and two of my grandkids. Recall that are sledding trip. I look forward to this every year it is a blast. The cabin is decorated so cute. Definitely feel like you got away from the hustle and bustle of life. We give our grandkids an experience that hopefully they never forget .
We stayed for 3 nights to celebrate my daughter's 4th Bday. The cabin was easy to access -- the roads and driveway were well plowed. The cabin had everything we needed and some. We had 4 kids, aged 10, 7, 4, and 2 months and they all had lots of fun playing in the snow around the cabin, warming by the fireplace (plenty of wood was provided), and lounging around. It's just a short easy drive to Leavenworth (about 30min). We would definitely recommend this place and may even come back to enjoy the outside fireplace and deck in the summer.
This cabin was PERFECT! When my wife walked in the front door the first words out of her mouth were "oh my god this is so cute!" It was warm and very inviting and we felt right at home. We had a wonderful trip and Kathy made it so easy for us, very accommodating and just made the whole experience first class. The cabin had everything we needed for cooking and easily fits 6 to 8. Enjoyed the cozy fire place, decorations (including Christmas trees in master bedroom & living room), and hot top was very nice after a day of skiing. We highly recommend this cabin for a family, couples, or anyone wanting to enjoy all that the Lake Wenatchee area has to offer. It's location is very convenient to both Stevens Pass (skiing), miles of XCountry skiing, snowmobiling, and Leavenworth for the lights and Bavarian shops/restaurants. We usually go to Whistler this time of year, but we were so impressed we plan to do this again next year, really great cabin.
We had a great extended weekend! Plenty of room and not too far from Leavenworth. Our family would stay here again!
It was a perfect little getaway for my husband and my wedding anniversary. We loved the coziness of the place. Very well decorated, loved just sitting by a nice fire. We will be back!
We stayed with Kathy at the Pine River Retreat for this past Oktoberfest and it was an amazing experience. The place was beautiful and she was very accommodating to all of our questions and concerns. It blew our expectations out of the water and was definitely a good fit for our needs. Thanks again!
We had a great time at Pine River Retreat. Amenities were good and the cabin felt secluded even though there were other cabins around.
Great place to stay! Everything was just as she said it was going to be, very neat, clean and had everything we needed and more! The hot tub was a great bonus.
We arrived Friday afternoon and the Cabin was ready for our arrival! Clean, neat, plenty of firewood, and ample room to back our RV into the driveway (best way to travel with kids). Close to Leavenworth for our first day and Stevens pass for the second. We enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub and enjoying family in the spacious kitchen/living area! If you ski you will appreciate the amount of room under the covered porch to keep your gear dry and gear down at the end of the day. Kathy was easy to get ahold of and will be getting return customers next year.
We had a wonderful time at Kathy's cabin! It is absolutely darling and was decorated for Christmas to add even more atmosphere to the tons of snow outside! The beds are super comfy, furniture lovely, very clean and kitchen nicely appointed (oops-they really need a new can opener!). Hot tub great-sledding in front of the house perfect. The drive into Leavenworth was fine except on tree lighting when it took 1 hour to go 4 miles! All wheel drive vehicles a big plus. FYI-skip the ceremony-go on a week night when they light everything up w/out the thousands of people-it is magical.
We had a lovely stay at the cabin. Snow was outside and we stayed cozy inside by the fire. Everything was comfortable and we had a great thanksgiving vacation there. Leavenworth was beautiful, a solid 20 min drive to town. There is a black cat that thinks it lives there and tries to get inside, but it was very friendly. Overall a good little getaway with a lot of rustic charm.
This is a beautiful, clean, and well equipped cabin in the woods. All you need is your personal effects. The hot tub is great after a long day of adventure. Leavenworth is amazing too.
We chose this cabin because of the 3 bedrooms and 3 baths and it really suited our sleeping needs for 6 adults, an 8 year old and 22 month old. It is very cute and the kitchen has EVERYTHING! Really appreciated that. It is decorated nicely but required child-proofing in the living room. Too many nice things! The weekend was rainy so we were inside a bit more than we'd have liked. Given that the living room - dining room could have been a bit bigger for our group, but it still worked. Thanks for sharing your nice space.
The cabin itself is fantastic. Plenty of room for 5 adults, a baby and two dogs. Beautiful area. Relaxing and everything you need is there. The hot-tub seems almost like an afterthought as it's in the back in a corner. Not a very comfortable area if you're not using the tub. The amenities are not as described. The bikes are old and not able to be ridden. There was only one kayak, not two, and the foot pump for it was broken. One of the floaties doesn't hold air. That was fine with us as we could rent any of this stuff if we wanted to. What was NOT fine was the e-mail she sent me Sunday evening. Without asking any questions at all or providing any details, this is what she said: "All of my supplies in the shed are gone. Which of your guests do I charge". Nothing more. That's the entire e-mail. EXCUSE ME? We didn't use anything from the shed. At first I thought she was talking about the floaties and kayak and such because that's all that was in there. I pressed for more details and asked what supplies are gone. She said "toilet paper, paper towels, dish soap and laundry soap". Wait, we're not supposed to wash dishes or use the bathroom?? I thought she meant the things INSIDE the house. It was hard to understand what she was saying as she talks in circles and doesn't get to the point or answer questions directly. After many confusing e-mails back and forth, I finally figured out what she was trying to accuse us of taking. Apparently, she thought the extra cleaning supplies were stored in the shed and since her cleaning staff said they were gone, we must have stolen them from her. Seriously? Your cleaning supplies are in the house in the cabinets in the utility room. You must have your many cabins confused. We are professional adults. We buy what we need, we don't steal it. Our wonderful mini-vacation was tarnished by being called thieves. If she had questions, a more professional approach would have been better. Maybe ask "I thought where were cleaning supplies in the shed. Did you see anything? Did you move anything" But no, right off the bat we're accused of stealing from her. We actually considered coming back in December when the town is decorated for the holidays. Needless to say, renting from Kathy is no longer an option for us. There are many other cabins available. Kathy, I would suggest putting a lock on the shed for your protection and the protection of your tenants and ask questions before you instantly call someone a thief.
The Pine River Retreat was the perfect cabin for the weekend trip we took! There was enough room for everyone in our group and the cabin was far more luxurious than we imagined. Every amentity we needed was included with the cabin and the price was very reasonable! Pine River Retreat was tucked away in a cozy neighborhood yet close enough to Leavenworth to make a quick trip to town. Our family will definitely be booking the Pine River Retreat next time we visit Leavenworth!
Our trip to Pine River retreat could not have been better the cabin was fantastic plenty of room, decorated beautifully we had so much fun thanks for all the extras like sleds, inner tubes, popcorn, wine etcetera. The cabin had everything you could ask for and the hot tub was great, lots of room and perfect temperature. Set up was perfect for games in the evenining and kitchen was perfect for our friends who are chefs in Seattle. They wipped us up some delicious meals.Snowmobiling was fantastic went with the 59er snowmobile rentals and had the perfect day. Lots of snow just a beautiful and perfect day. The town of Leavenworth was lots of fun plenty of good shopping and excellent restaurants. We would highly recommend Pine River Retreat and hope to return in the summer. We could not have had a better time.
This cabin is amazing!! It has everything you possibly need and more. It was exactly what I was looking for in a cabin, clean, rustic, roomy, comfortable, good for entertaining, great location for those who love mountain activities!! I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone looking for a vacation rental in that location.
My fiance, our pooch, and I stayed at the cabin for a romantic getaway and we absolutely loved it. Everywhere you looked there was adorable decor and we kept noticing new things all the time. The cabin was clean, the beds were comfortable, and we had pretty much everything we could ask for (we did think of a thermos as something we would have taken some hot chocolate into town with, but the kitchen had everything else we needed). We couldn't find the trash cans or recycle bins outside, so we took our one bag with us, but that wasn't a big deal. Wifi would have been nice to have, but again, not a huge deal, and we lived (Verizon had great cell service--ATT just ok service, but outside was better). You're about 25 minutes from Leavenworth, but we rather liked that (you're only 5 or so from Lake Wenatchee). We got a lot of use out of the hot tub and the two fireplaces were so fabulous too. We not only will stay again and recommend, we can't wait to go back.
Could not have asked for a more wonderful experience! The house was warm, cozy and perfect for our family. I brought a lot of my own cooking supplies but didn't need to because the owner has the kitchen fully stocked with all the cookware you need. The house was exceptionally clean and we loved how each party had their own bathroom! We would not hesitate to rent this house again!
My family and I recently stayed at this lovely cabin. Everything was delightful during our stay. The home feels spacious, is neat and clean, very well stocked (I mean VERY well, she thought of everything!) It truly felt like a home away from home for us. It is difficult to find a "cabin" that suits everyone's wants and needs in a family and Kathy managed to do it beautifully. Thank you so much! We hope to be back again someday!
We chose to stay here with all of our kids and pets because we have been here before. It is a lovely, clean, well supplied cabin that has a great setting to come relax. We took full advantage of each bedroom as we had our kids and their spouses and my mom. It made for a full house but a fun house too. The porch was a great hang out spot as was the living area. Only thing I would change is that I would add some sun light via sky lights as the cabin itself is really dark.
A group of 6 stayed for the weekend (3 couples). There was plenty of space for parking, in the living areas, kitchen and bedrooms. It is a short drive to Leavenworth. The area around the house has multiple properties surrounding, but the house, as well as the covered hot tub area is private. There is a nice walk up the road from the house. The owner was Wonderful at rescheduling our stay after a family emergency made it impossibe for us to stay the weekend we had planned. The home and property was very clean with plenty of towles and needed kitchen items. Wood was provided for the large fireplace in the livingroom. Only (minor) frusteration was one of the "king" beds is actually two twins put together and over the course of two nights seperated creating a large gap.
We took our 2 dogs for the weekend, our 3rd visit to this property. Kathy is a fabulous caretaker and her cabin is very comfortable. Lots of amenities, and you feel welcome the moment you arrive! The décor is perfect, the location is super convenient and we have never had a problem! We look forward to visiting here again!
Our family enjoyed a wonderful post-holiday winter escape at this cabin. It was very comfortable, well-decorated and great amenities. We travelled with 2 small toddlers and it was quite child-friendly too. Thank you so much for opening up your home to us and we look forward to another visit some time soon.
Kathy your place was beautiful! Better than even the pictures! We rent from VRBO at least twice a year and are kind of vacation snobs....we really like well apointed homes and yours was GREAT!!!! The kitchen is well stocked and everything you can think of is there. The bathrobes and slippers are a great touch, All the makings for a great fire, comfortable beds and linenes, toilet paper and paper towels, even hair dryers! The kids loved the sleds and we really enjoyed the cross country skiing over by the Plain Hardware Store. The groomed trails were a blast and great excersize. Fun to come home to the hottub and fire then to read a great book! We had just come from Whistler from a week of skiing or we would have taken advantage of the 25 mile drive up to Stevens. Your place is a jewel and all the care you put into it shows. Thanks again and look forward to coming back!..
We had an awesome stay at the Pine River Retreat. Very cozy and an 'at home' feel to it. The cabin had lots of space and accomodated our group of five well, we could have fit a lot more! The cabin had all the basic necessitities, it was if the owner really thought of everything that might be needed. Great location between Leavenworth and Stevens Pass. Would go again in a heart beat!
We stayed at the Pine River Retreat for a nearby wedding. What a great cabin! The kids loved the bunk beds and snuggling with the cabin "bears". Our daughter (age 7) enjoyed using the bike, and our son, (age 5) loved the Tonka trucks. They also enjoyed having their own TV in their room. The hot tub was a great way to unwind in the evenings and the new master suite was wonderful! This cabin is in nestled in a great neighborhood while still providing ample privacy. This cabin is well stocked, so we didn't want for much and it was great to be able to spread out. If you stay, be sure to visit the hardware store in nearby Plain for a latte and great gift items. I highly recommend this cabin and Kathy is great to work with!
Pine river retreat is a very cozy cabin. I was impressed with how clean it was and the available amenities. Hot tub was enjoyed after a long hike!
Kathy - We love your Pine River Retreat in the woods of Leavenworth! We had a wonderful stay, waking up to snow each morning. The Lake Wenatchee snow park is so convenient and fun for sledding. We skied all 3 days at Stevens Pass. Your home is beautifully furnished and filled with all the conveniences of home. We love the new master suite! We hope to return!!
Our group thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Pine River Retreat this weekend. We warmed up on the nordic tracks at the Plain Hardware store. The second day we enjoyed Lake Wenatchee and Kahler Glen. We were close to both areas and only 20 minutes to Leavenworth where we enjoyed the book store and the Nutcracker store. Pine River Retreat was clean and well appointed. Photos were accurate and helpful. It is beautifully decorated for a home in the mountain woods. We had all the comforts of home. Most of all, we appreciated three Large bedrooms with three large beds and each couple had their own bathroom. We had a great fire on Saturday and enjoyed eating together for meals. We would definitely return to Pine River Retreat in winter and may look into a summer adventure as well. Kathy was a friendly and prompt owner/manager.
We spent a snowy weekend here. It's very comfortable and cozy. It is very thoughtfully and generously appointed. While the price was steep for our small family of 3, the amount of care and attention put into making it a welcoming place was exceptional...much better than your average rental. The only thing missing was cell coverage or internet access. Internet access would be especially useful for checking weather, pass reports. There is a lovely path through the woods right up the hill. Great for kids and dogs. We highly recommend it.
Very comfortable and well furnished. The only complaints we had were that the kitchen garbage was full, there was personal laundry left in the washer, and the hot tub was gritty. Everything else was great.
What a great place to spend a weekend with girlfriends. This place is fully equipped for all your needs. The cozy mountain furnishings with a wood burning fire place make for a relaxing time with friends. Hot tub and covered deck add to the out door pleasures. Twenty minutes from down town Leavenworth with it's wealth of shopping and eating what more could you want!
We just spent the weekend at Pine River Retreat and had an absolutely fantastic time! This is my 5th stay at a VRBO property and overall (location, amenities, etc) it's been the best. The pictures of the cabin itself don't really capture what it feels like to walk in the door and immediately feel all your work-week troubles drift away. Kathy has decorated down to the littlest detail...fish soap holders to hanging antique ice skates. The furniture if cozy, comfortable and had it not been over 90 degrees when we visited we would have had the fireplace roaring! There were games for us to play every night after dinner and the stereo is connected outside so that was a treat for us to enjoy as well while sitting on the porch. The kitchen is welcoming with lots of everything you could think of or need to cook a meal for 4 hungry teenagers (and us parents). The dining room seated all 7 of us at once so we could have family mealtimes which were fabulous! The bedrooms were roomy and were perfectly in tune with our needs (the bed in the bunk-room is a king) and the beds themselves were reported by everyone to be very comfortable. The new master suite is gorgeous and very roomy. The fireplace insert was enjoyed every night; but because it was so hot, we had the ceiling fan on at night and it was a bit intimidating as it is a bit too low...if you are tall you'll need to be careful!! It was wonderful having the float tubes available, however, not all of them held air and should probably be replaced. We very much enjoyed the hot tub though having a bug zapper back there as well as the one on the front porch/deck would be VERY welcome! Lake Wenatchee is less than 5 minutes away and we spent a LOT of time there - it's gorgeous and they have a roped off swim area. It's a for-fee state park and the cost is $10/day or $30/anual. If you're just wanting to float the river, there are pull-off sites along the road to the cabin from HWY 2 that are free and very fun. If you plan to drive in to Leavenworth, I suggest taking the scenic route through Plain..the scenery is beautiful!! We have all decided that we want to make this an annual vacation spot because it was just so wonderful - Kathy had great communication prior to our arrival and everything went smoothly during our stay! We just wanted to say thank you and we will definitely be back!!! If you are looking for a wonderful, relaxing, quiet place to enjoy the outdoors...this is definitely where you should be!
We were looking for a quiet weekend without the kids, and this cabin worked out perfectly. It is very well stocked, with ample kitchen supplies, firewood, TVs, etc. It was very clean and we enjoyed staying here. We used the firewood and one of the two gas grills, we cooked some of our meals here, and all in all were very happy. The hot tub looked great but we never made use of it. The only considerations, which aren't necessarily drawbacks, is the DVD players - of which there is one in the main living room and one in each of the two bedrooms - aren't Blu-Ray players, so the discs we brought with us we were unable to watch. Not a huge deal. Also, there is no Internet access, and AT&T didn't have great coverage for our cell phones. This is great if you want to disconnect and unwind, but at least you will know. We brought our three small dogs and it worked out to be a great fit for them as well. Overall we were very happy with our stay and would highly recommend this cabin.
Cabin and neighborhood is beautiful. It snowed and we felt like we were in a snow globe especially at Wenatchee Lake. Roads in area plowed well. Cabin couldn't be cozier. It was all so serene. You Can get a Christmas tree permit at local store near park for $5.00. So we even cut our own tree to take home on top of car. We have made wonderful memories this Thanksgiving and we didn't want to leave this wonderful cabin and it's surroundings. Choose this one.
This cabin provided the perfect retreat for our family to say good-bye to summer... It had everything and more of what we needed! The kitchen was well-equipped to make all the terrific meals we had planned, the bedrooms and living spaces were very comfortable too. We loved enjoying a fire with a glass of wine on the covered porch every evening and even some mornings with a cup of coffee. We took Kathy's suggestions and spent a day at Lake Wenatchee, hiked Hidden Lake and tubed the Wenatchee. We loved using all the tubes that were available- it was so nice not to have to rent some for tubing. The only problem we had was that it got kind of cold and overcast during our trip so we were more than ready to get out of the river after 2 hours!! But thankfully the cabin has a terrific hot tub to warm us up when we got back...Our two kids and even our dog loved this mini-vacation. We will definitely be back! My husband, kids and especially our dog had such a good time there- thanks for sharing it with us. It felt like such a getaway...
Every conceivable detail is lovingly presented in this charming vacation property. It's warm, meticulously maintained and totally oriented to those who want to bask in a comfy stuffed chair, read a book and enjoy a glass of wine, perhaps for weeks! - You may find every single item you need exactly where YOU would put it, Kathy's flair for decoration and accomodation is beyond compare. The property is only minutes from Fish Lake, Leavenworth and a brief ride to Steven's for Skiing. There's even two restaurants, a gas station and a market within 3 minutes of the property, yet you would never know they were even there. You are not likely to find a more well appointed and functional getaway retreat than this beautiful property.
Will we take advantage of Pine River Retreat again?!?! Absolutely!! We had an amazing time with our kids and met up with some family from the Seattle area as well!! The cabin is perfect in every way - beautifully decorated, extremely clean and well-cared for!! Without a doubt, the kitchen is fully stocked with any kind of utensil, accessory, appliance you could need. Pine River Retreat exceeded every expectation we could have had!! The scenery around the area was gorgeous and the drive to Leavenworth, Lake Wenatchee and the golf course is very quick and easy as well!! Thank You!!!!!!
We chose this cabin for an anniversary getaway. What a treat! Everything was in perfect order, it was a complete hassle- free weekend. Just what we were looking for, quiet, peaceful, serene, and romantic. The cabin was exquisitely decorated down to the tiniest detail. I will look into the San Juan rentals as well, we were so pleased!
We had a really nice stay at the Pine River Retreat. A couple of questions came up, and Kathy was very responsive. The cabin was clean, and she had a cozy blanket that was to die for! The jacuzzi was too hot to get in on our first day there, and it took quite awhile to cool down, so we really couldn't use it until our last day. But, other than that, it was a very clean, comfortable cabin in a good location.
We had an incredible stay at the Pine River Retreat. The accommodations were impeccable and the details in decoration and convenience were outstanding. We will be coming again and hopefully making this a regular. Thank you for being pet friendly. Our lab definitely enjoyed herself. We have emailed everyone we know, especially those with pets, about your wonderful retreat. Thank you.
The cabin was perfect! You thought of all the details, and then some. We had a great time and can't wait to stay there again!
Wow! Absolutely beautiful, wonderful, relaxing, quiet, peaceful,I could go on. First, the pictures of the cabin on the website don't do it justice. First, the surrounding area and the outside of the cabin are beautiful but then when you go inside the cabin it is much larger then the picures show. The sleeping accommodations are top notch. My family and I (total of 6) all slept comfortably. Everday we found new things to do like shopping in Leavenworth or just hanging out at the cabin biking and playing in the river. There's something for every age at the Pine River Retreat. The prices were very reasonable to rent the cabin so if you are interested in staying in the Leavenworth area make sure to book early because dates go fast. We will be going back next year since everyone had so much fun. Thanks Kathy!
The power was out, but we still had a good time. Lots of firewood and the outdoor grill was helpful! Thanks!
This is a great cozy cabin up near Stevens! My friends and I had a great time playing in the snow, hot-tubbing and relaxing by the fire. I will definitely recommend this place to others!
We had a wonderful time at your cabin. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer! The cabin's comforts truly exceeded our expectations; we particularly enjoyed the fireplace, the comfy beds, the wonderfully equipped kitchen, and the hot tub. We hope to visit again.
