River Chalet

4 Bedrooms 3 Bathrooms Sleeps 6 Leavenworth

Stunning River Chalet Surrounded by Mountains
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. 

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.  A Cathedral ceiling with multiple skylights creates space and airiness.

The Primary 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! The view will dominate every window and transport you to your own private oasis on the calm river.

Just five miles west of Leavenworth, River Chalet is conveniently close to shops, festivals, art, and theater– yet enjoys the blissful quietness, privacy, and seclusion of a peaceful wooded setting on the river. The candy store is near this home, we suggest checking it out! River Chalet will become one of your favorite ways to relax!

Great for small group!

The owner/management company have done a great job with this house. I think any comments in other reviews have been addressed, the coffee maker works fine, the outdoor chairs are stable etc. Loved the “great” room and open concept kitchen that allowed us to interact without being crammed together. The huge dining table was perfect for game playing and watching the lake. There is no fishing in lake Jolanda,… its a law. Nice swimming beach 2 miles down the hill by the old power plant location (and the walking bridge). Hot tub was nice, and location was great. The management company was in touch before we arrived and was great to work with and friendly. Two bed rooms have an ‘ensuite’ bath (one on main floor, one on lower level) and 2 bedrooms share a hall bath on the lower level. There is a Safeway on east side of Leavenworth, so able to get all we forgot. There are some spices, coffee & filters, etc.


Excellent Property!

Steve R.
Perfect location that's close enough to town, but far enough for privacy. Bring binoculars for all the local wildlife (beaver, bald eagle, bear) and be sure to download movies before arriving for nighttime entertainment. Will definitely look to return.

Our family has been coming to Leavenworth for an early Christmas for 12 years. This was one of the best stays we have had. Booking through Destination Leavenworth was very easy and they were very accommodating. The house was everything they said it would be. Very spacious but comfortable. We especially enjoyed the hot tub along with the terrific views. The proximity to Leavenworth and walking to the Alps Candy Store was a plus. Our family will be back again next year!

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!

05/2022 ~ Website

Wonderful location on nature and close to town. Room for everyone!

05/2022 ~ Website

We had a great time at the River Chalet. Great location on nature and close to town. Plenty of room for everyone too.

05/2022 ~ Website

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.

05/2022 ~ Website

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!

05/2022 ~ Website

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!

I was a little nervous with how close the house was to the freeway, I thought the sound of the traffic would really ruin the relaxation level BUT IT DIDN'T. You could not hear a single car. It was the most relaxing stay we have had. It was the perfect distance from Downtown Leavenworth and candy shop. House had everything we needed. THE VIEW WAS OUT OF THIS WORLD!!! We will be staying there again!

12/2021 ~ Website

Great location and great place to stay. We have stayed here before over the holidays. Missed the Christmas tree this year.

11/2021 ~ Website

House was wonderful great room layout

10/2021 ~ Website

The house was perfect in every way. It was warm, inviting, peaceful, and the beds were very comfortable. The fall colors were incredible set on already spectacular mountain and river views. We truly enjoyed our stay. Plus I made my coworkers jealous posting such beautiful views while they were working.

10/2021 ~ Website

Absolutely loved the home and surroundings. Beds were comfortable, and everything clean. We'll be back

09/2021 ~ Website

We could sit on the deck all day long. Such a wonderful view.

09/2021 ~ Website

My family and I had a great time. We were able to see a bear across the river go about it's day. The location is close to town. The home is large with enough space for everyone to feel like they have their own space.

08/2021 ~ Website

Overall, we had a great time at this beautiful property. If I could make some small suggestions to really maximize the quality of the experience: 1) the hot-tub water was a bit dirty with sand and a few dead insects floating in it so would consider a deep clean there, 2) Consider replenishing the drinking glass supply - there were only 2 available, so we had to use mugs for most of our stay, 3) 1-2 of the outdoor chairs were broken and unusable, so replacing those would be helpful, 4) addition of outdoor toys/paddleboards/kayaks for guests to use, in addition to refreshing the board game/book collection, would really be an extra bonus satisfier. Overall, we had a great time, and would consider returning, especially if the above suggestions were taken into consideration!

07/2021 ~ Website

We have no complaints about the property which was clean, comfortable in an awesome scenic location. No problems with anything there. The hot tub was wonderful and the property side of the river was great for a quick dip (though cold). It is a perfect place for a party of eight! Property Manager was friendly and helpful with all questions.

07/2021 ~ Website

Was nice to be next to the river with a small lawn. Had a few things that were taken care of right away by the property manager. They were very responsive and did a great job!

05/2021 ~ Website

Beautiful view and owner was quick to answer any questions about the property! I will be staying here again!

05/2021 ~ Website

It was a wonderful stay. Very close proximity to Leavenworth and the house was just as advertised. We would love to stay here again.

02/2021 ~ Website

Lovely home located just a few miles out of town! Gorgeous view, perfect layout, quiet & clean. Oh & the hot tub is perfection!!

01/2021 ~ Website

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

01/2021 ~ Website

We had four couples and this was a very comfortable place for our weekend getaway. Great location, close to town and beautiful views!!

01/2021 ~ Website

Would definitely come back, great location, clean, great for families

12/2020 ~ Website

Amazing house. Beautiful view. Great experience!

12/2020 ~ Website

Wonderful stay in an absolutely gorgeous setting. Our family enjoyed our time at River Chalet!

07/2020 ~ Website

Amazing property! Check in & checkout very seamless & straightforward. Incredible view of river & mountains.

12/2019 ~ Website

Just like the photos, great quality throughout the place, everything as expected or better.

11/2019 ~ Website

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.

11/2019 ~ Website

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.

10/2019 ~ Website

This is my second time here. Beautiful property, quiet, close enough to town, and spacious.

09/2019 ~ Website

Easy process, smooth all of the way through, kitchen is so well stocked, comfort, comfort, comfort!!! Loved this property, we will be back!

08/2019 ~ Website

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!

08/2019 ~ Website

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!

03/2019 ~ Website

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.

02/2019 ~ Website

Excellent stay

12/2018 ~ Website

All said in the summary:) Beautiful and clean place, well equipped kitchen, plus the hot tub - we will be back.

12/2018 ~ Website

Property was beautiful and home was great for the whole family. Floor plan is excellent! We loved everything about it!

11/2018 ~ Website

Loved everything about this place, so glad we stayed here.

09/2018 ~ Website

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!

08/2018 ~ Website

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.

08/2018 ~ Website

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.

07/2018 ~ Website

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.

07/2018 ~ Website

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.

06/2018 ~ Website

It was a great location, however there was no way for me to bring paddle boards down to the water.

02/2018 ~ Website

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.

01/2018 ~ Website

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the River Chalet. The home was spacious and comfortable for our large family, the view was spectacular.

12/2017 ~ Website

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!!

02/2016 ~ Website

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!

12/2015 ~ Website

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.

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.

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 : )

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!

06/2014 ~ Website

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!
