Great home. Clean, well taken care of. Everything was as advertised. Would stay here again if I had to travel to Wenatchee in the future.

This is the second time we have stayed at Whispering Ridge Retreat and the location is just as beautiful as the last time. Walking out onto the deck is always a treat as the mountain view is unobstructed. The house is comfortable and well laid out. Its several miles from the town of Wenatchee so it is a quiet and peaceful place. Unfortunately, we cannot give a 5 star review this time around as there were several issues. The front screen door was missing a screen, the propane fire pit would not stay lit, the shower handle in the master bath was loose, one of the sinks in the master bath started leaking in the middle of our stay, and the floors were dirty. There was crumbs of food and some dirt on the floor in different areas like they were not vacuumed during the cleaning. Additionally, there was some damage to the stone work on the fire place, the air intake vent was in desperate need of a cleaning, and there was dust on several surfaces including pictures on the wall that does not lend credibility to the advertised deep cleaning. Twice we called Vacasa, for the shower handle and the leaking faucet, and the response was great. They had a person out that day to take care of things who did a great job and even had the price of our stay discounted. While I appreciated the great customer support, I feel that some of these issues (loose shower handle, missing screen in the door, fire pit not working) should be fixed before the guests check in or the guests should be notified beforehand so their expectations are set. Almost every week day of our 2 week stay there was someone on the property to perform maintenance of some type. While they never came in the house, we had no notification of the days or times of their arrival and it was annoying to have our stay and privacy unexpectedly interrupted. We would recommend Whispering Ridge Retreat as a great place to get away and relax, but more thorough cleaning is needed and notification of when maintenance will be on the property.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Aaron. The screen door, fire pit, faucet, and plumbing have all been addressed. Housekeeping has been further trained on our expectations using your review. Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and we hope to see you again!

The main shower did not work and the faucet to the tub is just a sink faucet so it will take a good amount of time to fill up, the stone on the fireplace is also not attached anymore so be careful opening it up as it crushed my finger on the way down, also not as private as lead to believe but had no issues with the neighbors or surrounding properties, oh and a lot of roosters In the area, only heard them in the evening when outside though, but over all 8/10 great place for a city get away and nice that there is a Safeway and other stores only 15-30 minutes away
Manager response:
Hi, Evan! Maintenance has fixed the shower knob, and we will suggest to the owner that they hire a contractor for the fireplace. Thank you!
Seamus D. Apr 2021
Like others said, this house is great but I would ensure fixes have been made before booking. The indoor fireplace is broken and you can't use it. The outdoor fireplace is broken and won't stay lit. The hot tub is unpredictable and difficult to use.
Manager response:
Hi, Seamus! We are so glad you stayed with us and appreciate your helpful feedback. The indoor fireplace has been repaired, the hot tub has been serviced, and the outdoor fireplace has been removed. Thanks!

Very close to Mission Ridge...very quiet. Will go again.
Kristine H. Feb 2021
Whispering Ridge worked great for our family of 4 to stay while skiing at Mission Ridge. So well appointed, clean, beautiful/relaxing views and close to the ski hill and also Wenatchee. It is pretty much the half-way point between Wenatchee and Mission Ridge. Looking forward to staying again. Thank you for sharing your property with us.

Very nice, clean, & modern with a bed for all mattress preferences.
Master king bed very soft (almost too soft); twin beds are firm; queen room medium. Hot Tub a very ice treat after a day of skiing! Will return!
Jennifer B. Dec 2020
We had a lovely stay for just 2 nights. We spent all of our time inside as we were there for our annual tradition of cozying up someplace to do our online Christmas shopping. The internet was lightning fast, tv's all worked great and you could cast to them. The hot tub was lovely, but it was a VERY cold slide on the frozen deck out to it! It was very private and lovely overall.

We have no complaints!
Mauricio M. Oct 2020
Very cozy housewith all amenities you need to have a wonderful time with your family. My familiy loved the house, we got a wondeful time. We would love to be back!! Maybe the only reco, would be to add steps or ease the outside slope for additional safety.
Tiffanie D. Sep 2020
loved the house beautiful inside and out.
Victoria L. Aug 2020
Nice property, comfortable with space to spread out. Fabulous deck, hot tub was nice (jets were broken) very clean. The road was very busy but that didn't bother us, there is currently some kind of construction going on. We stayed w/2 adults and 2 teenage boys, they loved the use of the very large tv and the great view of the stars at night. Nice area, not too far from town.
Jason L. Aug 2020
This place was so quiet and relaxing! Good sized hot tub, easy to use kitchen, and nice and private.
Mark S. Jun 2020
We loved our stay. The home was very clean and extremely well appointed. My wife and I have stayed at our fair share of Airbnb’s and everything was very new and had everything we needed. Very close to town, but seemed so far away. We loved drinking wine and stargazing in the hot tub! We would definitely stay here again.

*vacasa is a corporate machine. I emailed them 3-4 times during our stay at this home and another one in the area and did not receive a single email response. If you call them, they are usually very easy to get a hold of, though the people you speak with are not the owners of the property and you can tell they don’t really care too much about excellent service. They helped out when needed, so no real complaint, just know it’s a corporate stay.

With everything going on, we were looking for a quick nearby getaway where we could quarantine in someone else’s house! This was a perfect fit - the hot tub was great, the view was spectacular and the weather was exactly what we needed. Everything was well stocked and clean. We had a great stay!
Manoel F. Jun 2020
great house, very clean, cozy, beautiful view, great location. very good internet. all very good. I will come back soon. 👍
Jennifer B. Jan 2020
This home is close to Mission Ridge ski area and to downtown Wenatchee. Third bedroom with twin beds is quite small. Also hot tub needs manual screen to filter out floating debris.
Manager response:
Hello Jennifer, thank you for your review. We are so glad you enjoyed this home's location. We have alerted our local property manager of your feedback so that the hot tub can be properly taken care of. We look forward to hosting you again, soon!
Susan H. Dec 2019
Whispering Ridge was perfect. Close to the skiing, spectacular view and large deck, well-equipped beautiful kitchen, cozy beds & bedding, garage and a HOT hot tub. Definitely a 5 stars.
Priscilla M. Nov 2019
Great vacation spot right down the road from Mission Ridge. Very clean, comfortable and new. Great decor and thoughtful touches. Will definitely book again.
Richelle K. Oct 2019
A perfect retreat for both the outdoor adventurers (we hiked, biked, and climbed!) and the home dwellers. Everything you need in a vacation home and more.
