Five Star Experience!
Amazing house. Beautiful view. Great experience!
Todd - Houston TX - December 2020
This lovely and spacious contemporary chalet, cleverly tucked into the side of the river bank, is highlighted by majestic mountains, creating a private and beautiful vacation spot that's unmatched.
Just recently remodeled and updated, the new kitchen is beautifully designed and fully equipped. Surrounded by an absolutely remarkable river view–and panoramic windows to help you enjoy it– the open living room/dining room area is spacious, seeming to bring the outdoors inside. An oversized dining table and lots of comfortable seating will accommodate your whole group with ease. Cathedral ceiling with multiple skylights create space and airiness.
The master bedroom and large bathroom are situated on the main floor. Three additional bedrooms all with European styled duvets, as well as a clever Murphy bed, are located downstairs, as well as a comfortable Crate & Barrel Air Mattress 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 with lots of comfortable seating 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.

Wonderful stay in an absolutely gorgeous setting. Our family enjoyed our time at River Chalet!
Dorothy - Spokane WA - December 2020
The views and location were amazing! Enjoyed the snow and backyard. Wish there was a vacuum available for cleaning, quite a bit of dust accumulated from the living room rug. *The homeowners have recently replaced the textured living room rug with one that does not shed hair-like dust balls when walked upon! -Destination Leavenworth
Ligia - Vancouver WA - January 2021
We had four couples and this was a very comfortable place for our weekend getaway. Great location, close to town and beautiful views!!
Natalie - Graham WA - January 2021
Lovely home located just a few miles out of town! Gorgeous view, perfect layout, quiet & clean. Oh & the hot tub is perfection!!
Tawni - Everett WA - February 2021
The location right on the river was the best part of this property! The view from the kitchen and living room was awesome and we enjoyed family meals on the big dining table. Although the downstairs carpet should probably get updated soon, the beds were comfy and rooms and bathrooms were nice and clean. We launched our raft right outside the property and floated the river both days during our stay. We had a great time!
Tina Marie- Lynwood, Wa- 2020
Wonderful location on nature and close to town. Room for everyone!
Leslie- Lake Forest Park, Wa- 2020
We had a great time at the River Chalet. Great location on nature and close to town. Plenty of room for everyone too.
Leslie- Seattle, Wa- 2020
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.
Christina- Newcastle, Wa - 2020
This place had a beautiful view and tons of room! A little hidden off of highway 2. Easy access to water! We had tons of fun and hope to return next summer!
Andre- Moses Lake. Wa - 2020
A group 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!
Juston- Seattle, Wa -2020
Amazing property! Check in & checkout very seamless & straightforward. Incredible view of river & mountains.
Melissa- Rocklin, CA -July, 2020
Just like the photos, great quality throughout the place, everything as expected or better.
Veniamin - Spokane, Wa- December 2019
What a beautiful house!!! Will definitely stay here again. Plenty of room for our family of six. There was an excellent kitchen for us to cook a large Thanksgiving meal.
Debbie -Woodinville, Wa-November, 2019
This is my second time here. Beautiful property, quiet, close enough to town, and spacious.
John-Bothell, WA- October 2019
This cabin was just perfect! The view couldn’t be beat, location was close to town and it was very comfortable. Our Girl’s Weekend was amazing thanks to this cabin.
J- Pasco, Wa-November 2019
Easy process, smooth all of the way through, kitchen is so well stocked, comfort, comfort, comfort!!! Loved this property, we will be back!
Cory-Wenatchee,Wa- September 2019
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!
Margaret - University Place, Wa- August 2019
Loved our stay! Breathtaking view and a well stocked kitchen! Very comfortable and relaxing. With the exception of being right on the highway, it was quite serene. We only wish that we would’ve stayed longer! We will be back!
Heath- Edmonds, Wa- August 2019
Well needed mini vacation. Enjoyed the vacation home and the town. As I am writing this I'm sitting in the hot tub enjoying the mountains. Thank you so much. We will definitely be returning.

Property was beautiful and home was great for the whole family. Floor plan is excellent! We loved everything about it!
Lisa-Port Angeles, WA Dec 2018
Loved everything about this place, so glad we stayed here.
Jaime-Graham, WA Nov 2018
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!
Linda-Olympia, WA Sept 2018
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.
Ashlee-Kirkland, WA Aug 2018
Very spacious home with an absolutely amazing view. Had a wonderful time here and it was perfect for our size of group. Would definitely stay again.
Brandon-Spokane, WA Aug 2018
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.
Wade-Sedro Woolley, WA July 2018
The house and location are fantastic. The view from the back of the house is amazing. My son-in-law and grand kids had a great time swimming in the Wenatchee river. This was our annual family outing and we had 11 people at the house and were comfortable.
Wade-Sedro Woolley, WA July 2018
It was a great location, however there was no way for me to bring paddle boards down to the water.
Kelli-Leavenworth, WA June 2018
Loved the river chalet. Lovely home with an absolutely spectacular view out the back- it just simply can not be beat!! Plenty of room, close to town and a candy store within walking distance. I would absolutely stay here again!!
Joan-Flagstaff, AZ Dec 2017
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.
Roisin-Seattle, WA Feb 2018
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the River Chalet. The home was spacious and comfortable for our large family, the view was spectacular.
Valerie-Arlington, WA Jan 2018
We loved our stay at the River Chalet. The booking process was simple and the service was great! The house and amenities has everything you need and is well decorated. The views from the balcony are breath taking. All round a wonderful experience, we will definitely be going back!
Fauve, Seattle, WA. February 2016
We loved River Chalet! Beautiful well equipped home, very comfortable beds and jacuzzi was great bonus. The views are spectacular! Hope to try it in warm weather some day.
Pam, San Diego, CA. December 2015
Destination Leavenworth is the best company to rent a property from. Their company is world class. We were staying at one of their cabins the first night and was evacuated because of a mud slide. Destination Leavenworth didn't hesitate and put up in a bigger cabin to accommodate us for the week we were there. Just showed us that they care for the people renting from them. Will definitely come back and use them as our primary company that we rent through. You can't go wrong with using them.
Dane, Bellingham, WA. December 2015
7 Sisters gathered at the River Chalet to celebrate a 60th birthday. Beautiful home with everything we needed. Close to town but not too close! Beautiful view of mountains and the river. Office staff very helpful when we locked ourselves out! Couches good be upgraded-pretty hard for older people to get out of them!
Rosemary, Edmonds, WA. September 2014
I cant imagine a better place to unwind and enjoy nature and relax with my family.. We had 4 physically disabled with us and this was such a gorgeous serene location on the river for everyone to enjoy. We enjoyed watching the wildlife as well as the kayakers, rafters and canoers float by. We relaxed in the hot tub whenever we desired, played board games and went to the Maifest parade and more. My only complaint is that we ate way too much candy since the candy store was just a few hundred feet down the river, lol! Words cant express how special this place is and the significant memories our family will have to cherish forever. My 15 year old nephew seemed happier here than he had ever been.. He says he plans to buy the chalet after he goes to college and live there the rest of his life : )
Jennifer, Moses Lake, WA. May 2015
Incredibly quaint and relaxing chalet on the river. Would never know it's off the highway or even 5mi from town! We loved sitting on the deck at different times of the day and staring at the incredible mountains, listening to the rapids, watching all of the wildlfe; birds, geese, hawks, river otter. A true natural retreat. Linens and wainscoating added to the retreat feel. Thank you for such an incredible place to get away!
