Picturesque riverfront home w/private hot tub, stunning river views!

This picturesque Leavenworth vacation rental looks like it's right out of a fairy tale and is awaiting your family (up to nine guests) to enjoy its hot tub and river front location!

Just over a mile from the main streets of Leavenworth, this home gives off a sense of seclusion and peacefulness with river and golf course views, while still being close to all the attractions. River access for SUP boards and floaties is just a quarter of a mile down the road.

Beamed ceilings and large windows are just a few of the aspects that bring character and warmth to this charming home.

Three of the four inviting bedrooms are located in the main house, while the fourth (with a queen-size bed) has a separate entrance, just out the front door. The remaining three bedrooms have four beds (one has a king-size bed, one has a queen and separate twin bed, and the last has a full-size bed).

A stand-alone shower occupies the downstairs bathroom, while a tub/shower combo is featured in the upstairs bathroom. Everyone will keep clean and happy with the available washer and dryer.

With two sofas, two armchairs, and a rocking chair, the living room is a great spot to gather the family for a talent night. You can even watch old family videos using the flatscreen TV's attached DVD player. And during downtime, find something on Netflix to keep everyone amused.

After a day on the slopes, the living room fireplace and the hot tub are just what you need to relax muscles and stay warm.

Feeding nine hungry bellies is a breeze (and budget-friendly) with this home's full kitchen. Everything you'll need to whip up three meals a day is included, such as major appliances, a microwave, toaster, coffeemaker, dining table for six, blender, and even a dishwasher, making cleanup quick and painless.

You can also take your family meals outdoors to the gas grill to have a BBQ while you picnic on the lawn, or sit on the charming back deck.

If you would rather tube or paddleboard in calmer waters, head further down the Wenatchee River and exit at Waterfront Park to play on the beach for a bit. Browse through authentic Bavarian shops, sample fudge, find souvenirs, and brewery hop your way through town. Events occur regularly all year long, so make sure you check out what's happening around town during your stay.

Reserve your tee time at the Leavenworth Golf Club, located right across Icicle Road from this home. In the winter, snowboard and ski 35 miles away at Steve's Pass or Mission Ridge.

From shopping to splashing in the river, this cottage-like North Central Cascades vacation rental is the perfect home base for your next family or friend getaway. A damage waiver, covering up to $2,000 of accidental damage to the property or its contents, is included in the cost of your reservation.

You must be 21 years or older to rent this property.

House was awesome. Spent a lot of time on the deck enjoying the river. Kitchen was well stocked and had more spices than any house I've rented. Weird spatula. Plenty of room for all of us. Thank you!!
Paul L. Aug 2020
Super fun, kids loved the river, comfortable and clean house, simple but wonderful, thank you : )
Liberty H. Jul 2020
Loved this location on the river, and proximity to town. The beds were comfy, and the kitchen had everything we needed. Thanks!

Our two adult children, a daughter in law, and two young grandchildren stayed with my wife and I at White Water Cottage for four nights over Christmas. We had a wonderful time there! The kitchen was well-equipped and all appliances worked well, the living room was elegant with a fireplace and great views of Icicle Creek, the hot tub was amazing and the location was good for us. Some of us went snowshoeing at the end of Icicle Creek Road while others went downhill skiing at Mission Ridge. The cottage was in a good location for all of those activities as well as being very close to a sledding hill at the golf course for the grandchildren. The house was close enough to allow us to walk to town which was convenient for seeing the shops and the lights.

There are a couple of issues that might be helpful to know. The downstairs bedroom as described online is only accessible via a separate outside door. That means that nighttime trips to the bathroom involved going outside for a few feet and entering the house through the front door. Heaven forbid if the door's locked and you forget the combination! Also, the stairs are steep and are partially open on one side. Although this was fine for adults, the open side created a safety hazard for our two grandchildren - we needed to be very observant of them going up and down the stairs. Lastly, some of the cords that operate the window shades extend to almost floor level when the shades are pulled up. Although some windows have winding hooks, many do not. These loose cords created a safety hazard for our two young grandchildren.

However, those concerns were easily dealt with and did not interfere with the majorly good time that we all had there.

One other observation; the instructions provided by the owner were very good and very helpful. It was especially beneficial to have specific instructions for the front door lock and for parking. Backing into the parking spaces, as recommended by the owner, was extremely helpful.

We would go back! Now, it's just a matter of saving up the money for the rather hefty daily rate.

We loved the fireplace and the beautiful view. My family enjoyed the hot tub both days we were there. The beds were comfortable and warm. The location was perfect getting to and from downtown Leavenworth. My husband was surprised and happy there was a pizza pan and cutter. We would like to return another time.

Perfect for large groups

Great house, beautiful views great amenities
Ron W. Aug 2019
Our annual adult siblings retreat was at the White Water Cottage this year. We loved it. Wonderful location just a half mile from town. Well supplied. Comfortable beds. Fabulous river frontage.
Janice B. Jun 2019
The view, amazing. The river frontage was safe with a very large eddy/pool safe for wading. It was fun to collect driftwood. We would escort the children there but we never felt there was a danger to them.

Wildlife citings- antlered deer, marmots squirrel, ducks, swallows, blue jays and osprey

The house had everything we needed with plenty of towels and sheets and utensils, more plates then we needed.

It sleeps more than nine if you count the two sofas. But no doubt the owners would rather restrict the number. I certainly would.

The hot tub was also wonderful in the evening. The master suite is very lovely with a private balcony. The teen room next to it also has a balcony.

The location is excellent, with a golf course and restaurant about a block away. Many nice homes on the street in 1,000,000+ category.

We drove into Leavenworth however it would not be difficult to walk.

Thanks to the owners and we hope to be back. Though the home is approximately 40 years old it’s in good repair and very cozy with adequate heat and air-conditioning and a gas fireplace!
Elizabeth D. May 2019
What a great little find. It was perfect for a short getaway! Modest but just right for us. Lovely location on the river.
Eric N. Apr 2019
I love spending time on the deck and watching the white water with views of the mountains behind it!
Terra Lea D. Oct 2018
Listening to the rushing river at night was so delightful. My hubbie caught a few trout flyfishing...Grandkids loved the hottub, although the view of the nearby street was odd. Plentiful seating, comfortable bedding, a well stocked kitchen made it all feel like home.
David J. Aug 2018
Excellent location. Have rented for three years in a row bringing in family from Wenatchee, Seattle and Texas, and have been very satisfied. This year there were a few issues: Nails up on outside deck, yellow jackets in roof eve by outside table and bar-b Q shot flames very high which was dangerous. All were hopefully fixed for the next guests. Overall, it was a very good experience and I would rent again.
Manager response:
We apologize for these issues. We have sprayed for bees, hammered down the nails, and replaced the foil on the BBQ. Thank you!
Ismael L. Jul 2018
The house has a easy access to the river love it

We went rafting, walked to town had great food and drinks
We will be back soon!
Maudi O. Mar 2018
Location wise it is amazing! You are right on the river and it is amazing. The place is homey and has everything you need. A couple of hiccups when we first arrived there were ants everywhere...luckily the maintenance lady was there and quickly fixed the issue. I would recommend it for families with older kids...We had young ones and there were some risks.
Andrei P. Feb 2018
Very nice view. Beautiful. Not a lot of land though
Barron P. Jan 2018
A large group enjoyed this space! We appreciated the generous living room and proximity to the river. Wish the hot tub had a deck around it, but the water felt great!
Kelly H. Dec 2017
We had a great weekend trip at the cottage - we were able to walk the mile from the cottage to town. The view was perfect and we loved everything from the hot tub to the giant living room which fit all of us together easily.
Mark S. Sep 2017
Excellent stay. The house looked like the pictures. Beautiful scenery! Plenty of room inside house!
Tyler W. Aug 2017
Being on the river was great way to spend the weekend.
Susan I. Jul 2017
We needed a rental on short notice, and this worked ok. The views are stunning. We had an issue on day one with propane being empty that resulted in a return trip to the grocery store. We rent homes all of the time and are used to things being fully ready to go, especially if check in is as late as 4pm. The clean up/check out process was time consuming, especially given the cleaning fee.
Sam E. Jul 2017
Amazing weekend the house is gorgeous and way more in person than in pictures. Waking up to sound of water , the moon light in evening, the gril the kitchen full equipped , towels everything u need . We will stay there again
DENISE F. May 2017
Loved the place. Inside and the view are beautiful. The kids loved staying there.
Wendy G. May 2017
We were planning to take my mom to Leavenworth for her 70th birthday per her request in Sept, but then she was diagnosed with cancer. When she was finally well enough to travel many months later, we found this house available. It was wonderful.

The proximity to the river is amazing as is the deck to watch it from. And there are all kinds of birds everywhere, all the time. Kayakers going past were thrilling. We had privacy, yet were super close to downtown Leavenworth. 2 minute drive or so.

House was spaceous and well equipped to make breakfast and then spend the day shopping, golfing, having brats and beer and later schnitzel with accordian music. Fantastic! I would highly recommend staying here.
David H. Mar 2017
My company came here for our retreat, and it was absolutely wonderful! The enormous panoramic bay windows of the living room look over the river and mountainous hillside (which were covered in snow during our stay) made the house feel open, and the stay worth it. It's hard to find a better view from any rental place. This is a great house for six people. Admittedly, the house is a bit worn (though that's not a bad thing), but it was clean and comfy the entire weekend. We're so happy to have stayed here!
Kendra F. Mar 2017
This house was perfect for my friends & family who were on a ski trip. The location was excellent & within close proximity to downtown Leavenworth. The property is beautiful, overlooking spectacular river & mountain views. There's a lot to do in Leavenworth. Stevens Pass & Mission Ridge were about an hour away. The house was perfect for us & we had some epic ski days!
Darrick G. Feb 2017
The view is gorgeous! The hot tub is relaxing and well kept up. There are plenty of sleeping options! And it is nice and close to Leavenworth! We had a great time.
Adrian D. Jan 2017
I would recommend this home to everybody who loves winter adventure
Barbara C. Jan 2017
We loved the view and the space for so many people. It worked very well and we were very pleased. Thank you for a great family vacation.
Nancy B. Nov 2016
Leavenworth is a charming town to visit in the winter months.
Susan B. Oct 2016
Beautiful peaceful setting. Fall colors were amazing. Pluses: comfy beds, great location, kitchen well stocked, extras like good selection of games. Minuses: property is older with some upkeep issues,that come with old age. But it definitely was comfortable with plenty of seating in living room and room at table for at least 8. Stairs to upstairs not ideal for those with mobility issues. Perfect location for casual girls weekend especially with sleeping areas away from living areas so us early risers wouldn't disturb the others. The group was overall impressed with my choice which made me feel good.
Evan H. Oct 2016
Great location, great house and beautiful scenery

First, the best part of the entire stay at this house was the deck and location of the property. If it had beds, I would have gladly slept outside. It was so nice listening to the river and watching the stars at night. Other than that, the house did not feel clean, the linens felt old, and there was mold growing on the shower curtain and shower window upstairs. Also, there were only two air conditioners, and the house was very hot when we arrived. The furnishings were rather worn all over the house. We will not be returning to this particular property, but I would use Vacasa again. They were very accommodating and helpful.
Manager response:
We appreciate receiving this feedback. Housekeeping will scrub the shower curtain, the linens are less than 3 months old, and during the summer months we will make sure the air conditioners are running upon check in so the house is cooler.
Kimmie F. Aug 2016
Great spot for a family vacation! Beautiful view of the river.
Erika C. Aug 2016
We loved everything about the house itself. Easy 20 min walk to town, right by the golf course for an amazing breakfast! Right on the river with its own little beach area, but the walk down isn't the easiest. Kids and elderly guests will definitely struggle to get down there. Our only complaint was the next door neighbor. The neighbors houses are very close by, and called to complain about us at 6 pm, gave us a noise complaint and had the rental manager come check all of our ID's, then proceeded to peek over the fence again at 9pm to give us a reminder that 10pm is coming near and we need to be quiet by then. We were by no means a rowdy bunch. Then the next morning while we were at breakfast, I got a call from the property rental company saying the neighbor couldn't get out of his driveway because we were blocking his. My friend and I ran back very quickly to see the problem. And there was none. In fact, a 14 person taxi van was able to pull in and out of the neighbors drive way with extreme ease! We were parked no where near his driveway.
It just seemed like he had it out for us and really put a damper on out stay. Otherwise, the house itself and location, view was everything we could've asked for!
Seth N. Jul 2016
The view was amazing! We had a great time enjoying coffee on the deck overlooking the river. The house was spacious and even full didn't feel crowded. Our kids enjoyed playing on the beach below. The walk into town only took about 20 minutes, which was nice. One of the bedrooms is separate from the rest, connected to the house but through an outside door and away from where everyone was hanging out on the deck. We had a great stay.
Dave J. Jul 2016
This was an excellent overall experience if you enjoy sitting by the beauty of the rushing river and under mountains. So relaxing and tranquil. Plenty of birds of prey to watch hunting. The landscaping was wonderful. Very close to town - easier to drive but could walk. Safeway provided necessary groceries. Tons of outdoor activity. Would highly recommend , but you better not take my spot for next year:):)
Sharon B. Jul 2016
The view from the back deck was spectacular. We spent our mornings watching the hawks and Osprey catching fish while sipping our coffee. It was peaceful and lovely. I will definitely be back.
Erin I. Jun 2016
Great place overall for adults.
Julia N. Jun 2016
GREAT vacation rental. LOVED sitting on the deck looking out at the river. The home is comfortable, open and easily shared with a group.
Karen J. May 2016
Great German food--especially the red cabbage--best EVER!! Also, very helpful and friendly staff.
James L. May 2016
Beautiful location, wonderful house, but more effort needs to be applied in cleaning.
James F. Mar 2016
The best things about this place are the view of the river which is really stunning and the location and proximity to town. Right on top of the river and really close to town. The rest for the price are just OK.
CKristine R. Feb 2016
Great place and location for family gathering
Shawn Q. Feb 2016
I organized a trip for 10 people to stay in the cottage for the weekend for a music festival in Leavenworth. The house was large enough for our group without feeling crowded and everyone slept comfortably. Hot tub was already on when we arrived, as was the baseboard heat which was appreciated.

The view from the living room is absolutely gorgeous. A few of us were content to just read a book facing the river with a cup of coffee. Nice and quiet and relaxing.

There were two different sets of checkout instructions that kind of contradicted each other and the hut where we were supposedly supposed to put garbage and recycling was locked. There were ants in one of the upstairs bedrooms.

Overall, a very nice stay. I hope to be back again in the summer!
Molly M. Jan 2016
About a mile drive to Leavenworth and absolutely incredible view of the mountains and river. We did have a little trouble finding the correct driveway and were stuck as soon as we backed in. In the snow and ice I wouldn't attempt more than 2 cars in the driveway. The property manager was wonderful to shovel that evening so we could get out in the morning! Be advised, the driveway is steep. Check in at 4 pm was a bit inconvenient with small children, an hour or two earlier would have suited our needs better. The furnishings and home were dated and the pullout couch sags quite a bit, but the view of the river is breathtaking and it was spacious for my husband and I, our three kids, our parents, my brother and his girlfriend. We enjoyed the hot tub and watching raccoons out the window at night. Overall I think we would stay there again but maybe not at the price we paid.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review. We are sorry to see that your stay wasn't as perfect as we would have hoped and will advise the Property Manager of your comments. We are glad to see that we'll have another chance to impress you in the future!
Sandra O. Jan 2016
We rang in 2016 at White Water Cottage and had an excellent time! The whole house was well stocked with dishes, kitchen gadgets, cookware, towels, soap, shampoo, toilet paper, games, and so on. There were many fliers and pamphlets around with ideas for what to do and where to go while in town. The setting is absolutely stunning right on the Wenatchee River. The hot tub is very large with great Jacuzzi jets and lights for after dark. While in the house, we spent most of our time in the great room enjoying the view and fireplace. We'll be back!
Alex And Paul H. Jan 2016
We stayed at this rental this winter for a holiday vacation for 6.
We had a great time and loved the scenery. We hung out in the evenings after skiing snow shoeing and snowmobiling. The hot tub was fantastic and we cooked half our meals.
It was a great value financially as well as family time together.
The furniture linens and sheets need a serious update. They were clean but very worn.
If you are expecting a 5star hotel with posh settings don't stay here.
If you want a comfortable cozy cabin to spend time with your family and make memories this is the place
Marvin S. Dec 2015
Hard to put into words how beautiful and peaceful the view from the living room windows is. Adds new meaning to 'picture window'. The family (from 7 to 68) loved the stay.
Harry A. Dec 2015
Would love to got back in the summer and maybe do some fishing. It was a very nice location. Hot tub was a nice feature. Jumped in and relaxed in the evening.
Tammy H. Nov 2015
White Water Cottage was perfect for our friends fall retreat!
There were 7 of us but we could have very comfortably had 4 or 5 more. The furnishings were very comfortable and everything we needed was there. The location is fantastic and the hot tub was such a nice luxury!
The home was very clean and the grounds are well kept.
We decided that this home will definitely become our fall friends getaway place. We highly recommend this property. Can't wait to return.
