River Chalet: Spacious, Contemporary Home on the Wenatchee River!

Leavenworth, Washington

Spacious lodge on the Wenatchee River with fantastic views
On the stunning banks of the beautiful Wenatchee River, just five miles west of the Bavarian village, River Chalet offers one of the most outstanding and relaxing river settings you will ever find!
Recently remodeled, this lovely contemporary home is fully equipped, and is roomy enough for your whole family! Cleverly constructed into the side of the river bank, the largeness of this beautiful home is hidden from view at the front entrance. Enter, and be pleasantly surprised at the big, fully equipped kitchen, and the open living room/dining room that's spacious and roomy! Cathedral ceilings with multiple skylights, as well as lots of large windows that continually frame the beauty of the flowing river, provide a sense of space and airiness.
A door from the dining room opens to a large deck- with BBQ grill- that overlooks the river. Just imagine how relaxing meals can be from there!
A master bedroom and large bathroom are situated on the main floor. Three additional bedrooms, as well as a clever Murphy bed, are located downstairs, as well as a sleeper sofa in the living room. There are also two additional roomy and attractive bathrooms downstairs, one of which includes a door that leads to the private outdoor hot tub overlooking the river. The downstairs hallway leads to a huge outdoor deck that overlooks the river- an absolutely perfect place for amazing serenity!
Just five miles west of Leavenworth, River Chalet conveniently close to shops, festivals, art, and theater- yet enjoys the blissful quietness, privacy, and seclusion of a peaceful wooded setting on the river.
River Chalet will become one of your favorite ways to relax.

    Wow! What a place! Even more beautiful than the photos! The house was extremely clean, towels were available, kitchen fully stocked with cooking supplies, propane ready to go in the grill, the showers were lovely and the staff was always available and super friendly! Plenty of space to fit all of us and we couldn't have been happier. Definitely be sure to spend time in the backyard! The river is much wider than the photos show and very beautiful. Our only regret is not spending time in it.

    It was a great house for the 9 of us. Idyllic setting, and having a hottub was great after a swim in the river. One thing could have made it even better. Trim the bushes along the riverside. It blocked some of the view, and we couldn’t see the kids when we were sitting down.

    Love the cabin and location! It’s my 4th time renting it. Last in ‘09. The cabin is spacious and very nice inside. The river is fantastic for swimming. A couple things need attention though. The hot tob was unusable. It was not full, the water was yellow and there was garbage in it. Also there was only 1 garbage bag. That made clean up difficult. Regardless, I look forward to staying here again soon.

    A group of 11 of us stayed at this property for a celebration and it was the perfect size to accommodate all of us. There was more than enough space, and everyone felt very comfortable. The photos don’t do the view justice, it is even more breathtaking in person! You are legitimately RIGHT on the river, and can walk down and sink your toes in :) perfect for a nice little getaway!

    This home was spacious and comfortable, but the biggest asset to the home was the setting. Sitting in a canyon on the edge of a river, we had amazing views 24/7! The night sky was awash with stars, and we could even see the Milky Way and lots of shooting stars. We loved the proximity to Leavenworth while feeling you were alone in the world. We truly enjoyed our stay!

    For the easy going this was glorious. Spacious with excellent views and comfortable beds. The amenities were as described (bring your baggies, foil, Tupperware). We enjoyed the large table and bar stools that made the kitchen part of the rest of the living space. Having one bedroom that did not require navigating the stairs was a life saver for us. The views from the entire upstairs were spectacular. Downstairs had fewer windows, but still great views. The beds were comfortable and there were enough pillows. The couches were cozy! The TV seemed to work fine (we didn't use it much). I would recommend this place in a heart beat! Picky stuff that some may want to know. The cleaning was mostly fine, but the place needed a good "spring-clean" the top area of the shower was visibly dirty and under the couches (toys ended up under there we had to grab) were dirty. The jets in the hot tub were broken and didn't work well, kinda a bummer, but the water was hot and the view was beyond compare so we didn't mind! We could not find a way to turn on the fireplace. Seems it is a remotely controlled item? There are a lot of light switches that are a little strange to figure out. I wish we had known we needed to download music before we arrived. There is a no-streaming policy on the limited Wi-Fi. I know that all the details are trivial, and some of it was maybe included in other information? I like to include the little stuff, but really want to emphasize it was a really amazing location and we enjoyed the heck out of our time there.

    My Book Club has stayed here three times in the past ten years for our annual retreat. We use it as a base to go hiking in the area, then come home to good food and discussions about books. Six of us fit very comfortably in the 4 bedrooms +couch. The dining area, living room and decks were large and spacious. The kitchen was also large and well-stocked (remodeled since we last came), except it could use some real wine glasses and some big serving spoons. Thanks!

    Great stay for the family.

    Amazing location!!! Perfect house for a family trip with older kiddos. Can’t beat being on the river, we loved every minute of it. Only problem we had was with the grill, more then likely it needs to be replaced.

    Perfect for large groups

    We had a great time at this house. It's right on the Wenatcee that we were able to swim in. You are only a few minutes west of Leavenworth on Hwy 2. I would recommend this house.

    This is the second time my family has stayed at the River Chalet. It's so comfortable, extremely well located between Stevens Pass and Leavenworth. Apres-ski in the hot tub was just heavenly too! The view of the river, mountains and local flora/fauna was just spectacular. Will be back.

    The chalet is absolutely amazing and I don't think the pictures do it justice. We all wish we would have brought a small boat. Rooms and beds are super comfy and nice. The kitchen accommodates for everything. Best vacation I've ever taken

    Thank you for having us, the place was incredible. It fit all 10 of us, although the couch bed was not the most comfortable bed. It is in a great location next to a candy store and has a private backyard. The coffee maker was a lot of trouble, you would think that Mr. Coffee would know how to make coffee but it dripped everywhere except the pot. We were able to get it to work a few times. The hot tub is nice and big! Thank you!! I had some confusion about paying Destination Leavenworth AND Vrbo. I did not realize that there was a fee from Vrbo on top of the quote that Destination Leavenworth provided, it comes as a separate payment on credit card bills. I did not quote all my friends the right price so ended up paying a lot more than any of them. My mistake but a costly mistake. Thank you for a beautiful home. I don't think I would rent it again because of the expense.
