This property was perfect. Everything was clean, kitchen is well stocked. It was super close to downtown. We will definitely use this property again!
my recent stay at alpine pension was perfect. From the minute we walked in we were blown away by the views from every single room of the river and the mountains. We stayed with 12 people and it fit us perfectly. The kitchen has everything we needed, enough space to fit everyone COMFORTABLY. The game room was perfect. With the amount of games to play for every age group it was more than i expected which made this even better! So relaxing to be able to drop in the river and float if you want and driving distance to town where it wasn't inconvenient if we needed to run to the store. My favorite part was that there was 3 kitchens which made cooking so easy!! We definitely found our spot!! Our family is currently putting dates together for next year!!! Thank you so much!!
Perfect for 2 families... incredible game room. Great river location to swim or float. Loved it.
What can I say that hasn’t been said in all the other reviews? They were all very accurate and all the 5 star ratings are well deserved. This home is amazing. Communication with the hosts and the check in was so easy. The house was spotlessly clean when we arrived. The two kitchens had every sort of pot, pan and utensil you can imagine. The master bedroom on the main floor is huge and well laid out, and the two master bedrooms downstairs with their own Jacuzzi tubs and bathrooms are even bigger. The game room has to be seen to be believed. Our teenagers loved it and so did the adults. There are plenty of bikes, games, and puzzles to keep you occupied. Our only complaint was we couldn’t stay there forever. Thank you very much for a fantastic, much needed family vacation. We hope to be able to come back in the winter.
We loved staying in this property, it was perfect for our purpose. The young folks stayed in the main house, where every couple had their prviate bathroom. They all shared the big kitchen. My husband and I stayed in the cottage, which was perfectly fine on it's own and still kind of connected to the big house, without being too involved in it. The party room is the best I've ever seen in my life. The property is right on the river, so you can jump in and swim or float or just watch people floating by and listen to the murmur of the river. Very tranquil and quiet at night. We hope to be back at some point, maybe in the winter to enjoy this little marvel in the snow.
From our initial reservation communication to our check out we were taken care of not only in this STUNNING home but in the way the hosts communicated and provided. We will absolutely be coming back. The river is calm just beyond the backyard which made for easy And stationary floating. The game room is better than any picture can show. The home is perfect for large family’s and friend gatherings like we had. There isn’t one thing this vacation rental doesn’t have for a perfect get away.
Perfect family retreat
We had a great time staying along side the river! this home is simply amazing! Minutes to golf and a short walk into town. We had a great time in the game room. Highly recommend! We hope to come back again in the future.
Overall a great experience. Family had a great time of using the game room. Plenty of board games to utilize. Place is a lot bigger in person than pictures. We also had a musical session with the piano which also was a plus! Would definitely come back again!
We had a wonderful stay! The deck with the view of the river was wonderful, the game room was amazing and the house was comfortable, well appointed and in a great location. Camie was a pleasure to work with. Looking forward to coming back!
Every thing was fabulous. The kitchen was very well equipped. Beds were comfortable. Setting was beautiful. Game room was fabulous. I can’t say enough about how fun and delightful our stay was
Our second time renting and had alot of fun once again. Always clean and the river is beautiful right out the back. Game room is a big plus. We will be back again.
Amazing birthday weekend with my friends. The house was amazing and we really enjoyed our stay!
Very nice house
Beautiful house, exceeded expectations! Plenty of space for our large family. The game room was amazing. We had so much fun we didn't want to go into town.
What a beautiful weekend full of hot tubbing in the snow, a costume contest in the game room, and walking into town. This place is a magical piece of the earth and the (many) layers of snow only added to its majesty and gloriousness. Highly recommend. Will definitely book again.
We welcomed in another year at this great house! The size and layout is perfect, the view is spectacular and being so close to town is great! Can't wait for next year!
Excellent home with great location to enjoy a family Christmas in Leavenworth!
This house fit our large family perfectly! Stayed for Thanksgiving week, and having three ovens was a huge plus. Everything was perfect for those who wanted peace and quiet and a party space for our loud crowd. Baby sleeping in a 1st floor room couldn’t hear a peep from down the hall, A-mazing! Loved it.
We had a wonderful time, the house was amazing.
We had a fantastic stay at this beautiful property. It was so nice to be right on the water and to see all of the beautiful fall trees surrounding the property. My group had everything we needed to cozy up, enjoy meals together, watch sporting events, and to create memories. Communication was great and checking in and checking out were a breeze. We highly recommend this property for groups and would love to make a return trip in the future.
This house was perfect for a creative offsite for my team! It had everything we needed and lots of open space to meet, talk and brainstorm. Thank you!
We had a wonderful time during our stay. My wife and I celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary with 12 other friends and family and this house proved perfect. Very clean, great communication and we couldn't have asked for a better location. The river is really nice to float and relax all day with a bunch of provided floats. The game room is flat out amazing and we spent most of our time in there, playing pool, ping pong, and watching some college football on the big screen. We'll be coming back (soon I hope)!
This house was perfect for our friends and family trip. We spent most of our time in the game room. Wish we could have enjoyed the outdoors a bit more in the evening but the neighbors are serious about the quiet hours.
This is the 2nd time my family has stayed at the Alpine Pension and we hope to return again. We love the river access and beautiful view. Plus, the game room adds a lot of fun!
We stayed here as part of our annual friend reunion. There was plenty of room for us all and lots to do. It's a great location and close to Leavenworth for some shopping too.
This home is beyond amazing! It is beautiful, spacious, and comfortable. The house is supplied with everything you could want and more. Highlights would be the game room, hot tub, outdoor firepit, yard & detached cottage. The game room was beyond fantastic and is understated in it's description online. It has every game you could imagine. I would definitely recommend this rental to anyone and we hope to come back soon. One word of caution. Quite hours outside are no joke! After 9pm you should be inside the house or game room or the neighbors will call and make noise complaints.
We enjoyed the charming and vast property along the Wenatchee River. We had an easy time cooking from the very equipped kitchen and we spent most of our time in either the great room or around the fire pit on the outside deck overlooking the river
Home and property were very impressive, comfortable and welcoming.
Large home with a lot of space for 12 people to relax.
Our group of 8 slept great, enjoyed the gameroom, and will always consider this location moving forward.
Loved the property. Quick response when needed. Great for large families & groups of friends with so many different entertainment & social areas.
Everything is perfect at the Alpine Pension. It is beautiful, has everything needed and our contact person always responded quickly to my questions although I had very few because she is very thorough with instructions and any needed information. We think of the Alpine Pension as our family’s Leavenworth home and we will return!
The house was spacious and located in a beautiful setting. The property manager was very responsive and we had a lovely weekend.
Wow, amazing home on the river, plenty to do, loved the game room too. We will be back.
We had a fabulous stay at Alpine Pension! The home is beautiful in a magical setting on Icicle Creek. We saw an eagle and other birds from the many windows facing the river. The home was very clean and in excellent condition. The kitchen had everything we could imagine we would ever use. The location was perfect for both Nordic skiing and some downhill with the younger grandchildren. We also enjoyed the proximity to Leavenworth allowing a walk into town for shopping and Alpine ambience. We enjoyed the very clean hot tub and the game room was perfect for super bowl viewing. Camiekae and Kelly were responsive to our brief questions upon check in and made our check out very easy and relaxing. We hope to return to Alpine Pension!
Love our annual stay here, the house is always perfect upon arrival. So quaint and charming to see and hear the river. The game room is a great place to gather and play. Most accommodating!
Alpine Pension was the perfect house for our party of 12. Everyone had their own bed and only one couple had to share a bathroom. Common places are big enough for everyone one to hang out, especially the game room in the heated garage. I had to contact the owner, Camiekae a few times and she would respond very quickly. Great communication! Will definitely look to stay here again in the future! Thanks again, Camiekae!
We had a wonderful time in Leavenworth for a quick family trip for New Year's Eve! The house was perfect, so much room for everyone to spread out especially our teenage and adult children! There was even a Christmas tree and a lot of other Christmas decorations which was such a nice, festive touch! The game room was also great, even better than we expected! The kids could go out and have a great time while the adults could have nice conversations inside. The house is so close to town as well which worked out perfect since we actually spent quite a bit of time in town. This house will be first on our list the next time we are headed to Leavenworth!
We truly enjoyed the property and the location was the best!! The home was clean and stocked with exactly what anyone would need. Wouldn't hesitate to rent again!!
We stayed at Alpine Pension for Thanksgiving with all our family. There is plenty of space and it’s very roomy so you aren’t all crowded. The views of the river and mountains were amazing. Our kids enjoyed walking down to the river. We spent every night in the game room, perfect for kids or teens. Alpine Pension is a short drive to downtown Leavenworth for sightseeing, going to dinner or to grab a quick cider. My only suggestion would be to leave laminated cards with instructions on how to use the TV’s & fireplace. We hope to visit another time at Christmas!
My friends and I spent a weekend at Alpine Pension. What a Wonderfull house! We Played in the game room, swam in the river and relaxed in the jacuzzi. I would recommend this house to anyone wanting a wonderful time in Leavenworth.
Had a great time would definitely come back
This is truly one of the most amazing properties in the greater Leavenworth area. The setting on the banks of the Wenatchee river, with access to rafting and swimming just over the riverbank is so ideal. The lodge with its lovely bedrooms, adequate bathrooms and kitchens is perfect - not to mention the hot tub, firepit table, BBQ, and AMAZING game room, makes the Alpine Pension like no other property in the area. After many, many years of gathering here, our family has come to call this our BEST week of the summer!
10 ladies from our hiking club (the sole sisters) stayed at this property for 3 nights. We spent a day wihitewater rafting on the river and had a great time. There was plenty of room for us to hang out - loved the back yard. We had a couple minor problems which were addressed in Such a short time that we were amazed at the response we got from the owner. Could not have been more pleased with the house or the customer service that we received. The location was excellent - close to town and near a great hiking trail. The game room was also a favorite place to hang out - we had many ping pong games, pool table was great and the other games in the room were fun as well. We also like to cook nice dinners and the kitchen was well equipped with what we needed to put together a great meal. The barbecue was sparkling clean and easy to use. Loved hearing the river all the time - all in all, it was a perfect place to stay and again, the owner went above and beyond when it came to addressing any small problem or request. Thank you!
The number of bedrooms, bathrooms, and gathering places are perfect for every need. The kitchen is well equipped and there is adequate parking for all vehicles. The backyard, patios, BBQ, and hot tub were well used. The river bank is a perfect place to start a float. The addition of the cottage allows for more family members and greater privacy.
The home had everything from plenty of dishes, a small army of bikes (even a tandem), to toy blocks. Having the garage game room was just super as Grandma could go to sleep undisturbed by the younger ones staying up playing ping pong, etc. Do be aware you are in a neighborhood area and they are very sensitive to noise. My husband's family runs loud, that's just how they are, and we did get a visit asking us to be more quiet. If you have a loud group, you will want to let them know in advance that audibles are not welcome here.
Wonderful location with easy access to the town and local adventures yet seclusive feeling for your group. Plenty of space for everyone to feel like they have their own retreat as well as bountiful entertainment areas. Highly recommend for all ages and gatherings.
What an amazing house! We were most impressed with the game room. The yard is quite large in the front and the back yard overlooks the river. They have bikes, corn hole, basketball hoop, etc. We had so much to do at the house that we didn't even go into town, except for dinner. There is a separate cottage to rent that is perfect if you want some privacy. We will be going back and highly recommend this house for all ages.
Had a great time at the cabin! Was definitely spacious enough for our group of 16. The kids had a ton to do and spent alot of their time in the garage that was a game room. Definitely would recommend staying here. If ever looking for a house rental in Leavenworth we will definitely be renting here again.
I was thoroughly impressed with the property and highly recommend to any interested parties.
We enjoyed our stay at the Alpine Pension. the house is awesome, with so many rooms and so much to do in the rec room! plus the weather accommodated, we had snow!
had a great time and need to book the weekend for next year. January 25th and 26th. Friday and Saturday night
We were very happy with our winter stay at the alpine pension. The hot tub overlooking the river was wonderful. The game room was great - pool table, ping Pong, darts, cornhole, etc!!! And the house was well stocked - pots and pans, appliances, knives, games, obviously a lot of thought put into making this rental complete. We will be back!!
We have stayed at Alpine Pension several times, it has become our home away from home, for the holidays! The house is beautifully decorated for Christmas, including a tree! The kids LOVE it there, as do the adults. The house is well equipped and very comfortable. The property management company go above and beyond to make sure we are pleased with our stay. Thank you, Cami and Kelly from Leavenworth Properties!
Great location close to town but the best aspect was the home and property itself. Loved the views, the amazing game room, and relaxing in the numerous jetted tubs. We thoroughly enjoyed our time together at this property.
We take a group family/friends trip every year - and this place was perfect! The main house was big enough to fit all of us, all the rooms were very comfortable, and the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to cook meals together. The detached game room/garage was perfect for those of us who wanted to stay up and hang out (so many games to play), while others who went to bed in the main house could sleep without anyone waking them up. Close to town, but also a wonderful location being right on the river - you can hear it roaring when you step outside! We'd absolute love to stay here again next year!
Our group of ten women had a lovely, long weekend stay at Alpine Pension. This is about our fifth year staying in the house and it suits our needs well. Beds are comfortable, plenty of bathrooms, well-equipped kitchen, large dining room table for eating, crafts and Bible study and adequate seating in the living-room area. We enjoyed the hot tub overlooking the river, and garage activity space as well, and had the fireplace going in the evenings. We will be back.
This is the 5th year in a row that we stay at these beautiful house! Being on the water when the leaves are changing in Leavenworth is amazing! Loved the kitchen upgrades! Thanks again. Would recommend this house to any one!!
Lovely spot just outside Leavenworth. Beautiful views, hot tub and game room made for a heck of a weekend. Only issue we had involved the fireplace and the gas line. First we couldn't turn it on, and then we couldn't turn it off. But Kamie was responsive and helped us out. Otherwise everything was great!
A old group of friends and their families gathered in this house for a summer weekend and river float. Lots of space for everyone, great put in to float, and big lawn to just relax on the river.
Our stay at Alpine Pension Lodge was epic. The house was beautiful and stocked with everything we needed to cook great meals.The game room was a favorite gathering place as was the large living room. The back patio was where many of us met to have our morning coffee. We relaxed around the fire pit in the evening. The weather was perfect. The property provided a great location to launch our old foggy river tubing expedition, just one of the highlights of our stay. There is so much more that we could mention about this property, but we will sum it up by saying our family has decided that they had such a wonderful time that they would like to do it again in two years.
We've been renting the Alpine Pension cabin for several years and have never been disappointed. It's has everything you'd ever need for a fantastic vacation !!! So much for kids and adults to do and only a mile from town. The cabin is right alone the water so tubing is right out your backdoor. Cammie and Kelli the property managers are the best. Anything you need they will get it for you. Love love love this place !!!!! Barb
The house and grounds were better than anticipated, and worked treat for our large family. Fans in the guest house and garage would have been a real plus, but the air conditioned house was perfect. The only problem encountered were ants, and they were really bad in the garage and guest house. Ant spray seemed to help, but it was not enough to get rid of them. All-in-all we had a wonderful time; especially enjoyed the cool back yard and hot tub!
This is a must stay location from now on whenever I stay in Leavenworth. This place is beautiful and has something for everyone. Can't wait to stay again.
Alpine Pension is really a delightful gathering place even though there are a few things that could be better. Last year it was mice and this year it was ants...plus flying gnats of some sort clustering around the back door. We cannot manage top bunks so we usually have one or two ladies on couches. We would like more couch pillows for the dining room chairs which are very hard and very heavy. We wish there was a 'circle' of some sort where 12 of us could all chat together. Now -- we love the deck, the view, the game room, the kitchen. It would be thoughtful to advise guests to bring their own Kleenex, napkins and salt and pepper. Dishes are very attractive, but also terribly heavy!! The setting is lovely and maybe four stars is more appropriate, but still it is wonderful to be there. --
This is a great property. Everything you need there and lots of fun. Would recommend it for any occasion.
This is a gorgeous place. Felt like a lodge. Loved the fireplace, the open lay-out, the multiple suites (bedrooms with connecting bathrooms). The playroom is great. We had a wonderful time with a pretty big group. Would definitely come again.
A group of us headed to Alpine Pension for a winter weekend and had the best of times. This house is absolutely incredible. Big, cozy, comfortable, with great views, lovely layout, amazing garage with bunch of games, hot tub looking towards the river (surrounded by snow), and even a detached cottage for extra room. It's hard to find something wrong with this house. Maybe one or two of the mattresses were older and saggy, but even that feels like minutia given all the perks of this home. Ideal for big groups who enjoy cooking, playing games, hot tubbing, and playing in the snow. Oh, and it's right on Icicle Creek Road, with great access to snowshoeing in the winter and hiking in the summer. The hosts were very easy to work with and had everything for us that we could need. Will return some time soon, that is for sure.
Alpine Pension is an amazing property. The kitchen is well stocked. Linens are plush and cozy. We celebrated our annual family holiday gathering at this property, and it is beautifully decorated for he holidays. Every possible need was met and exceeded our expectations. We look forward to visiting this property again.
Great accommodations for a large group with lovely view of the river. Well-equipped kitchen, love the gas fireplace and hot tub. Perfect for large family reunion gatherings or girls' weekends.
4 years in a row that we stay at this house and we love it! Waking up right next to the river, having bikes to ride and even a game room to play well into the night! Thank you and hope to stay again next year!
This was the 4th year we have stayed at the Alpine Pension Lodge. We are a group of girlfriends that have made an annual trek to Leavenworth the past 16 years and have made reservations for next year! We can't say enough good things about the lodge, location and amenities! The only complaint is that we don't have enough time there!!!! We would highly recommend this to anyone.
This was our second stay at the pension and we enjoyed with a group of our friends. The kitchen is well supplied to allow for all the cooking you may want to do. There are ample games for groups or family gatherings and all in a beautiful setting. We enjoyed our visit!
We had a great time . The property was beautiful, quiet, and clean. The view was wonderful too.
We've lost count of how many years we've been here for our annual Family Reunion - maybe 8 or 9 - or more! We can't imagine that any property in the area could accommodate us as wonderfully as Alpine Pension. Highlights include a FABULOUS riverfront view and access for swimming, wading and rafting down the Wenatchee. A game room that truly is too good to be true - but it's all there! Lovely common areas inside and out for eating together, visiting and just soaking up the view. If that wasn't enough, there's also the hot tub, fire pit for smores roasting, and a great deck for grilling. Amazing!! Thanks for continuing to welcome us back each year. Our grandkids (and this year we even had a GREAT grandchild in the mix!) look forward to this All-Star Weekend...and we hope to just keep it going! As always, the property is beautifully maintained and ready to welcome us every year. We enjoy working with the excellent office staff who make securing a reservation easy to do. We recommend this property to anyone!
Great location right on the river! So much for for the whole family. Lots of games for everyone to enjoy. Close to downtown Leavenworth! Will come back for years to come!
We have had a family vacation for the last 30 + years. Have never been as satisfied as we were from July 10 to July 15th. Don't know how we could beat the view, location, or amenities. The pictures we saw were pale in comparison to what it was when we arrived. Don't believe you would have to go anywhere with all that was available with a game room, bikes, and easy access to the river. The property was meticulous ! Someone checked to see if we needed any extra propane or anything else. The owner made it easy to reserve the home and it was totally hassle free ! That hasn't been the experience we found in the past. I know why we had to reserve our vacation long in advance as I am sure that most of their customers are repeat. We went into town and ordered food to go from a nearby restaurant. The food was excellent ! I am sure we will return next year with our family of 16. One member is in the service and couldn't make it. EVERYONE is looking forward to next year. I would be proud to recommend this home to my friends and relatives, just like a friend of mine, Lou Baransky did to me. Sincerely, Ted DeSanctis
Our group of twelve women stayed at the Alpine Pension for several days in the spring of 2015 and happily made reservations for the same place for 2016 and again for 2017. We have gathered every year for 28 years now and deemed this particular place the best one ever. That includes stays at Iron Springs, Friday Harbor, Tokeland, other Leavenworth offerings, Cle Elum and probably others. In other words, we love it. In 2015 several mice came to visit. In 2016 they realized apparently that they were not invited and did not visit. We learned to bring our own Kleenex. The soap in the dishwasher did not seem to dissolve properly. I personally would have preferred that the place was nestled under pine trees off by itself, but my friends prefer being close to town. You can see I had to search to come up with anything which even sounded like a problem. All in all you will not be disappointed if you stay there. If needed, go out to the 'play/game' room for an incredible offering of entertainment!
They have thought of everything
It was better than we thought it would be! It's like 3 separate houses all put into one. The game room was the topper. We had planned on heading into Levenworth to eat and shop, but instead just stayed at the house to cook and play games all weekend. The grill could use some work, but other than that, the place was great! Oh, did I mention the river!
We were celebrating a 60th anniversary with 15 people ranging in age from 1 year to 83. The house was perfect, the view was beyond wonderful. We enjoyed the hot tub and fire pit, as well as the big living dinning area. The kitchen had every thing we need and the house had toys high chair and Pac and play for the baby. Every thing was clean, we would recommend it to any large group.
The home is giant- the game room is awesome! The view is spectacular and the hot tub is perfect. We had the best time, everyone had enough room and privacy and the town is so close! One of the best Leavenworth experiences I've had.
My husband and I, along with 3 other couples stayed here for a long weekend. It was great! Love the way the house is put together. Plenty of room to hang out with everyone in living room/kitchen open space. But great privacy in every room! Definitely plan on staying here again!
This year my husband and I decided to give the gift of a small family trip to all our kids/grandkids for Christmas (as we missed out the summer before) rather than gifts per se. With everyone so busy and all the grandkids in activities of their own we didn't have much time nor choices for weekends. Be only 2.5 hour drive from home and knowing how beautiful Leavenworth is we decided on this destination. Using VRBO for other vacations we started our search. Having a larger crowd we needed space and Alpine Pension was exactly what we were looking for. Not only were the accomodations beautiful the owners were extremely accomodating and kind. We would definitely choose these owners/property again... Minus a couple of problems that were solved immediately we had a care free ~ trouble free weekend. Thank you to the Lynch's The Kaperick Family :)
Great communication from the owner/property manager, huge house with lots of amenities. Garage was everyone's favorite go to place because it had the pool table, ping pong table, tv etc. Less than a 5 minute drive to downtown Leavenworth, but still far enough away to feel like you are totally secluded in the mountains. The outdoor hot tub was another favorite spot, especially when it was snowing out! We were extremely impressed with everything, and I will forever cherish the time we spent here. Hopefully we will be back again soon!
We had a group of 14 with 9 adults and 5 children ranging in ages from 1-12 years of age and everyone had a wonderful, memorable time. Everything was well-equipped from the kitchen to the game room. We were able to prepare a full Thanksgiving dinner because the kitchen had everything we needed, including roaster pans and electric choppers. Even though the game room was a bit chilly, people got warmed up after playing Ping-Pong and pool for hours. The bicycles were a nice touch. They even provided a stroller and high chair for the little one. The beds were amazing...so comfortable. I could go on, but I would recommend for people to read previous reviews as they captured all the wonderful things about this property. The owner, Camie was attentive, accommodating and easy to get a hold of (even during Thanksgiving weekend). For example, I read all the previous reviews and it stated that the BBQ wasn't working, however when I contacted Camie about it, she said it was already replaced! I HIGHLY recommend this property for everybody during any season.
The house was great. We had our entire family there and there was lots of great activities for the kids. Really beautifully well-kept and well-stocked home.
The home was beautifully kept and spacious. The view of the river was gorgeous and very relaxing. Our one complaint would be the state of the gas grill: the starter button was broken and the grill was so badly in need of cleaning that it caught fire while heating up. Dinner prep was easily moved to the kitchen, but that was a disappointment.
We had an excellent time at this cabin. Perfect for 7-13 year old children. Hot tub, grill, fire pit, pool table, ping pong table activities were all in great condition. Great amount of cooking utensils. Kuerig was a nice touch. Maybe could use a larger TV in main living room and sand for the shuffleboard table would be my only recommendations for this wonderful retreat. I would give this resort 4.5 stars out of 5.
Our extended family of 15 descended on the Alpine Pension for a couple of days when the dry conditions (lack of campfires) prevented us from camping. We've collectively stayed at many private rentals, and we all agreed this was one of the nicest, most well-appointed places we have stayed. The view and nearness of the river was awesome. The "cave" was full of all sorts of activities, pool, ping pong. There were footballs and basketballs and bikes. The kitchen was extremely well stocked. The beds were all comfortable - there was even shampoo and conditioner in all the baths. Plenty of towels. I can't say enough good about it. We'll be back.
Our group of 15 ranged in age from 11 to 71, and Alpine Pension was loved by all!! The view is awesome, 6 bedrooms and 4 baths along with two kitchens gave everyone their own space. Some of the highlights of this house, kitchen was so well stocked, hot tub, propane fire pit, river access directly from the back yard, and a GREAT game room! Along with Ping Pong, Pool, darts etc, there is a outdoor basketball hoop (with a basketball and various other balls) and several bicycles (even a bicycle built for two). If you are going to Leavenworth with a large group, everyone will Thank You for booking the Alpine Pension!!!!
The home was lovely, clean and well supplied with kitchen supplies. The garage was full of fun things to do asnd our family thoroughly enjoyed the stay.
We couldn't imagine a better location for our annual family reunion! The riverfront lodge and cabin are so accommodating in every way! The game room, hot tub, patio firepit and gorgeous river access are simply OVER THE TOP!
This is hands down the best place we've ever rented! Every year we rent a new place together with our large extended growing family (10 adults & 5 kids/babies), and this is the first time we all agreed we had to come back to the same place next year! Our only complaint is that our four-legged family members can't come. The amenities are amazing; large space, comfortable beds, so many toys, bikes, games, incredible views, hot tub, fire pit, 3 refrigerators to hold all our food/drinks...just to name a few. I should mention we bought some tubes in town and floated the river right from our "backyard." (There is even a compressor in the garage to quickly inflate them.) We discovered it takes just 1.5 hours from the cabin to the waterfront park in downtown Leavenworth. It was a perfect, relaxing float...even my three year old son sat in my lap and had a blast. One of the highlights of our trip was seeing a black bear come to the beach right in front of the property, all while several of us were lounging on our tubes in the river! The beach is full of large slippery rocks and has a steep but short climb from the yard to the water, so not the best for very small children, (but great for exploring and catching minnows, using a little net we found at the toy store in town). However, we brought a small blowup pool which was the perfect set up for the yard and the smaller kids. We highly recommend Alpine Pension and can't wait for next year!!!
We had a fantastic time relaxing at the house, playing in the game room, and floating the river. The house was well stocked with everything we needed, beds were extremely comfortable, and there was so much room for everyone. We couldn't have been happier with this rental.

Our family absolutely loved the Alpine Pension! It was perfect for the 10 of us adults (5 couples) with a queen or king sized bed for everyone, and easily could have accommodated more. We enjoyed the expansive space with two kitchens and two living rooms, grilling on the BBQ, hanging out in the converted-garage game room, and sitting by the outdoor gas fire pit at night. Cami was a wonderful host. She checked in on us once soon after we arrived to make sure all was ok and otherwise gave us our privacy. We would recommend the place to anyone and hope to return again!
We rented the Pension for work in the Leavenworth area. During the evenings the place was awesome! So much space to relax and have fun. We only had one little hick-up, the grill didn't start right away. After I tinkered with it to no avail I called the management. In 5 minutes they had a very nice man come, fix it, clean it, and get it up and running. It only took and extra 10 minutes and we were up and grilling. Great service! We will be staying here again. If you use all the Bedrooms the cost is very affordable. I researched it for a month, and for the size and the amount of room it provides, it is the best deal. The only thing it doesn't have is a volley ball court, but it has everything else.
What a beautiful place. It fit a lot of us and had something for everyone. The game room was amazing and was a teenage boy heaven
We had an amazing time at this house. The location cannot be beat, right next to the river and close to great hikes. The living room has a great view of the river. The garage was very fun too. The surroundings were extremely peaceful and quiet. This was one of the best house I had rented.
this place is super beautiful! enjoy your stay!!
Hands down this is the BEST LOCATION IN LEAVENWORTH. I was planning a retreat with a few of my closest friends, we are all getting older, having kids, moving away and getting married so its harder to get together than it used to be. I am very family oriented and wanted a "Tradition" for all of us every year. I wanted a location that we could grow our group and make our yearly spot to visit, something to look forward to every year. This house exceeded our expectations by far. This was the perfect home. We had the best time reconnecting, meeting the new babies and spending time together. The game room was ridiculous, it was perfect. I could keep going on forever about how much we enjoyed this place. I am so happy we found this spot and can't wait for many more years to come staying here. One thing that I disliked about this property was that is it not pet friendly. But, that the only dislike.
We had such a great time at this house!! It was our wedding weekend and we had a fun dinner after with friends and family!! Loved loved loved the fun garage and having so much to do!!! Can't wait to come back again!
This house is gorgeous! We were so happy with our stay that we are looking to book it again in the future for a family gathering. They were 12 couples on this trip and we each had our own room. The game room out in the garage is perfect!
We had our blended family of 6 adult children, 4 spouses, 7 grandchildren from 5 months to 18 years of age, and ourselves, along with our oldest daughter's recently widowed mother-in-law and her youngest son staying in the Lodge and the Cottage. Everyone had a great time! The resounding exit comment: This was the best Christmas yet!!!
As our grown children left the Lodge and said their goodbyes, each one's refrain was the same. "This was the best Christmas yet!"
There were 8 udults and 9 kids(ranging from 9-17 years old) in our group. The house fit our needs perfectly!! The game room was a fun for all of us. The Beds are very comfortable and kitchen is stocked with everything you could need. We even made a prime rib dinner!! There was a small plumbing issue, but the management got it taken Care of as best and fast she could(thank you!) we will definitely be renting this house again!!!
Camie and Kelsi thank you soooo much for making it work for our youth. The house was absolutely incredible. Beautiful view from the bedrooms, awesome open kitchen.. Roomy day room and dining room. We couldn't have asked for a better place. We had 15 people with us and everyone absolutely loved this cabin. Also we were very lucky to get 8 inches of snow, that made the entire trip even more funner. Don't have a good picture to post but the cabin was absolutely amazing. Thank you very much again for all of your help and letting us come in early and everything else that I'm not mentioning. Only positive memories and 100% will recommend to everyone of our friends. Thank you
I rented this home so I could have my large family there for a special moment. I must say it met and exceeded all of our expectations. Just walking in the front door and seeing the place and views had me and my fiancé as excited as the kids. They had every amenity down to bikes for our kids and laundry detergent. They did not miss one small detail. Any one looking for a awesome rental, get this one. Camie the manger you rock!!! We will be back next year. And thanks for the gift bags on the counter (nice touch).
My husband and I stayed for 2 nights in this beautiful home along with his five siblings and their spouses. It was wonderful for each couple to have there own bedroom, some with bathrooms, large tubs, a view, even a kitchenette. The guys really enjoyed the recreation room and the women enjoyed the large kitchen. Many of us took advantage of the comfy furniture for reading and napping. We all used the tables to play games and do puzzles. We had planned to take a group portrait while together and couldn't have asked for better scenery. The river was so lovely it looked like a painting so we all got couples pics. What a special memory we made at this exceptional home! P.S. The bed we slept on was so luxurious I peeled back the layers to write down the name of the mattress for whenever we replace ours. You'll love staying here.
We loved our recent stay at Alpine Pension! It is a great house with lots of space, plenty for our group of 15. The views are beautiful, and the setting peaceful. We had a fabulous time there on our weekend get-away and everyone in our group is looking forward to coming back again!
Ten couples spent 3 nights at Alpine Pension and had a fabulous time. This is a great place for a large group with its 6 bedrooms and it is quiet except for the river, which is only music to the ears, not noise. We recommend the Icicle Creek trail as "doable" for any age and Visconti's Restaurant in Leavenworth as fantastic! Rafting is on our "To Do" list for next time. There were no glitches in reserving this place nor in the stay itself.
We had a wonderful time at your home. The setting is lovely and your home is beautiful. It was great for my parent's 50th wedding anniversary. My only concern was that some things need to be maintained... doorknobs falling off( I was worried about the girls staying in the cabin), leaking fridge to clean up, some broken metal on the shared bathroom downstairs, broken bi-fold doors in other downstair's bathrooms(Toilet clogged on arrival and no plunger in that bathroom), and a gas fireplace that was tricky to operate. This property is wonderful, but needs a wee bit of fixing up as you do not want to spend your time on vacation worried about fixing things. Overall our experience was amazing and the kids said we should do that again every year. We loved biking on the big shoulder and over to the fish hatchery trails. Great place for kids!!
Lots of room for 6 couples to spread out. Excellent river views and outdoor space. Kitchen well appointed with all amenities. Game room a pleasant surprise. Hot tub very clean and enjoyable.
Rented this house for a team building retreat. The location is amazing and amenities are great. I would stay here again in an instant.
alpine pension was exactly right for us -- a group of adult siblings, plus spouses and kiddos. we had everything we needed! The big dining room table was great for formals dinner with everyone, and toys in the cupboard kept the little ones occupied while adults enjoyed the fireplace and stunning views out over the valley. the location near nordic ski trails was perfect for morning fitness fans, and some enjoyed afternoon wine-tasting in town while others drove up to stevens pass for skiing -- so everyone was happy. This house is set up well to accommodate multiple families with different needs: bedrooms on two floors, and second kitchen are perfect for early-morning toddler breakfasts; game room, hot tub, and multiple living rooms give late-night people plenty of space to enjoy themselves. we'd love to come back during the summer!
I rented this home along with my siblings for my mom's 100 birthday. It was magical! The place is so homey and comfortable yet large enough for us to all spread out to do our own thing. The kitchen is well stocked and we did alot of cooking every day. We loved being just minutes from Leavenworth. I can't wait to go back and stay longer.
We had a fabulous time at the Alpine Pension! The home has everything you need for a get a way! We loved the view, the fireplace and sitting areas. We adventured into town for sleigh rides, sledding, snowshoeing and even shopping. We ended the day relaxing in the hot tub overlooking the gorgeous river. The kids had so much fun in the garage game room- playing pool, darts and ping pong. This is the perfect house for a small or large group! We made many wonderful memories here. We can't wait to come back!
Alpine Pension exceeded our expectations in every way! We were six families with 11 children under the age of 4. The house accommodated all of us nicely with plenty of space in 5 of the bedrooms for the extra pack n plays we had to set up for our little ones. The kitchen is very well equipped with pots, pans, slow cooker, extra large griddle, etc. There are even some of the essentials like cooking spray, oil, salt & pepper, etc. The second kitchen and dining area downstairs was a bonus that we utilized for cooking and feeding the kids. Leavenworth is just minutes down the road for all the things that we inevitably forgot and the kiddos got to sled in both the backyard and in downtown Leavenworth on hills that were just the right size for little ones learning to sled! The hot tub was a hit for those of us willing to brave hot tubbing in the snow. The only regret, was that we didn't discover the awesome grown-up/kid cave in the garage outside until we went looking for the garbage receptacles at the end of our stay. Fully equipped with all you'd need for playing and lounging. All in all, it was a memorable first winter retreat for our PEPS group and one we will return for annually!
The Alpine Pension was a perfect weekend getaway from the moment we stepped through the door. Specious yet very cozy, the pension + cottage had plenty of rooms for all 21 of us (7 couples, 4 kids and 3 babies). The kitchen is stocked with all the cookware, the game room is hours of fun, and the wooden floors and walls let you breathe deeply. The highlight was a hot jacuzzi surrounded by snow and the mesmerizing view of the river. We all had plenty to do at the house the entire weekend and only wish we could all stay there much longer. Camie was very accommodating, even offering us a free extra night, so that we could enjoy the Super Ball. Our entire family will be starting the annual tradition of spending a vacation here. Loved it!
Couldn't have been more perfect for a group of 16 - 10 adults and 6 children. Lots of room, furnished with everything you need, and plenty to do without leaving the house. Close to Leavenworth to make quick trips to the store and the restaurants and shops. Right on the Icicle River so the view out the window is beautiful and private. This property is just like the pictures - maybe even better.
This was our 2nd year at Alpine Pension and we have booked our return for next year too. We love this place! The location is perfect. You have privacy, room to run and play for the kids, yet you are so close to town. The setting is gorgeous, right on the river! We did not have snow this year which was disappointing for the kids, but that is beyond the control of anyone! The house is well suited for families! Stocked with games for all ages, movies, etc. The kitchen upstairs and downstairs have everything needed for cooking. The home is spacious and comfortable, the living areas work great for large groups. Camie is helpful and responsive. We are already looking forward to next year, hopefully it will be a white Christmas!
Fabulous place to stay!! We are a group of College friends (50 + yrs old) that have gotten together every New Years for many years. This year we chose Leavenworth for our destination and this home proved to be the PERFECT place! Everything we needed was in the home, plus the beauty of the river right outside the door. A very comfortable and beautiful home. Would definately rent again!
Our immediate family began a tradition 4 years ago of spending a weekend in Leavenworth in December. This was our way of kicking off the holiday season, and enjoying the sights and lights of this majestic town. This year our brother and sister-in-law and their family joined us. Needless-or-say, we needed a house large enough for 6 adult couples, plus two small children. Alpine Pension filled all requirements and exceeded all expectations! From the moment we arrived, we felt we had entered a special place. From the front drive, it appeared smaller than we thought it was, but as soon as we entered the front door we realized our mistake! We entered into a large, comfortably appointed lodge, with a 2-way floor to ceiling river rock fireplace---gorgeous! An oversized dining table, large enough to seat us all, served as both dining and Game Center! The kitchen was completely stocked, and we were able to prepare all meals at home. Because it was early December, the home was decorated for the holidays, complete with tree and outdoor lights (operated by a timer). There is also a heated hot tub on the lower level, with a commanding view of the river. Our visit ended far too soon, and we all agreed that it was our favorite rental in Leavenworth. It's been a month since our visit, but I still think about it. I should also mention the excellent communications we had with the property manager, Camie. We will absolutely seek her assistance for any future event in Leavenworth!
Our experience at Alpine Pension and Cottage was fabulous. Beautiful home, setting and accomodations. There is so much to do there, we could stay for a week and not get bored. There are games, a hot tub, BBQ,an entire game room with pool, ping pong, bikes, basketball game, Its only 2 miles from town. There are 2 kitchens in the house. The beds were comfortable. Fresh flowers....Can't wait to go back next year!
This is a spacious and clean property that is close to town; about 1-2 miles. There is gameroom with ping-pong, basketball, darts, river tubes and bicycles. Also there is an outside jacuzzi tub and lots of chairs and tables. Recommended for larger family gatherings; lots of bedrooms and bathrooms. The house is of wood and stone and very cozy and comfortable. The owner is nice and helpful. We enjoyed our stay very much and wished we could have stayed a couple of extra days. Recommend the summer outdoor theater, shops in town, the Wild Huckleberry for breakfast, Cafe Mozart Restaurant for lunch or dinner (authentic German food) and the Waterfront Park. We stayed in August of 2013 but I couldn't make the correct arrival date appear..
Our family of 10 loved watching the river and the tubes and rafts floating down. The wineries was of interest to some, as visits to surrounding towns. Levenworth with the music,and stage shows and Bavarian atmosphere were most enjoyed. The Lodge itself was completely furnished. We lacked for nothing. We would recommend to any of our friends. A great break.
We were in Leavenworth for a family wedding and the Alpine Pension Lodge worked perfectly for our stay. It could accommodate all fourteen family members and there was plenty of area to gather but yet it also offered private space. Everything we needed was provided, and the home is very comfortable and welcoming. The location was fantastic with the beautiful scenery, river frontage and outdoor space to enjoy. The hot tub and game room were an added bonus! Camie was great to work with. We had such a great time together and I would highly recommend a stay at the Alpine Pension.
We visited the Alpine Pension with a group of 6 families and it perfectly suited our needs. Lots of common space for hanging out, and private space for each family as well. Camie was great to work with, everything was clean, easy and lovely.
A group of 6 families went last Christmas and it was absolutely perfect--easy, comfortable, with lots of space for everyone. I highly recommend, and we'll be back!
The Alpine Pension provided sufficient bedrooms so that we were all accommodated comfortably. The several sitting areas and the sun room provided many nice places to congregate. The listing information was quite accurate and allowed us to make bedroom assignments prior to our arrival. It was quite convenient to downtown Leavenworth with its beautiful lighting displays…it was the best ever. We sampled a traditional German meal, but most often we had meals at the house which provided a large table where we could all sit. It was convenient to a hiking trail across the street that provided access to a beautiful mountain trail. The snow was good, so we took advantage of the local ski area and the cross-country tracks at the Fish Hatchery. One day, two of our out of town guests drove to Stevens Pass for a day at skiing in really great snow. We were there through a Sunday so we attended Mass at the beautiful Our Lady of the Snows parish church. It was a wonderful parish community with a very welcoming priest. One of our grandkids at one time during our stay remarked to my wife: “Mimi, am I dreaming?” That kind of sums up our memorable stay at the Alpine Pension which was so reminiscent of our many vacations in the Alps when we lived in Europe.
My husband & I, our children and grandchildren spent a wonderful weekend at Alpine Pension. We could not have been happier! The home is warm and welcoming, lots of room inside and great views of the river. Everything needed was supplied. We did lots of cooking and were pleased with the well stocked kitchen. Beds were comfy, plenty of extra blankets & pillows. Camiekae was so helpful and friendly! We had lots of snow for the kids to play in. Snow plows showed up to ensure we could get out the driveway! Town is just a short drive away. We took the kids tubing and sledding, and the Christmas lights are spectacular. I would highly recommend Alpine Pension and Leavenworth Properties.
We had a couples retreat during one of the weekends in December. The Alpine Pension was the perfect place to hold six different couples! Very roomy, the rooms were great, the hot tub was an added bonus as well. The house is beautifully placed right on the river, and waking up to a winer wonderland was great! If we decide to go back to Leavenworth, this will definitely be the first place we check to see if available!
We ended up with a group of 14 at the last minute, so we added the optional cottage. The accomodations were perfect for our size group. We found the kitchen to have all the appliances and cooking tools we needed to make a variety of dishes. The location couldn't be better, it is such a beatuiful spot overlooking the creek. The new hottub is great and we only wish it was bigger (it comfortably seats 6, but we obviously had more in our party). All in all, we found this to be the best place in Leavenworth for our size group and were pleasantly surprised that it exceeded our expectations in all respects!
My stay here exceeded my every expectation. I wish I had more than three days to stay. The location could not have been any better and the home itself was so comfortable for our family and friends. I hope to have a reunion here in a year or two.
We have just completed our fourth annual family reunion at The Alpine Pension. Without a doubt the property is over the top in every way. The comfortable bedrooms, adequate bathrooms, double kitchens, FABULOUS river frontage and delightful patio space are beyond compare. The parking is more than adequate and even a nice shady yard for the foot races our grandchildren look forward to. There isn't another property that could even come close to providing so many wonderful amenities. It's the BEST!
