Spectacular Home & Waterfront Location for a Family Vacation

The Buddington Haus is a treasured home on a quiet road along Icicle Creek, located three miles outside of Leavenworth Village and just a half-mile below the National Fish Hatchery with views into the majestic Enchantments of the Cascades. Enjoy as a peaceful escape into nature or use as a comfortable home base for enjoying all the activities Leavenworth has to offer. Welcome to the home that earlier generations of this family-owned home built with love and care that is designed to be shared with the whole family.

The house has three comfortable bedrooms, a large, eat-in kitchen perfect for making meals, and a formal dining room. Just outside the kitchen, you’ll find a private gas grill for warm-weather cooking. There are a private washer and dryer, multiple wood stoves, and fireplaces with wood provided, and comfortable furnishings that welcome you like a warm hug.

The house has three comfortable bedrooms, two full baths, a basement bedroom with a bath, a large, eat-in kitchen perfect for making meals, and a formal dining room. Just outside the kitchen, you’ll find a private gas grill for warm-weather cooking. There are a private washer and dryer, multiple wood stoves, and fireplaces with wood provided, and comfortable furnishings that welcome you like a warm hug.

The comfortable basement bedroom has its own wood stove, piano, movie nook, a Ping-Pong table for hours of fun, and two comfortable beds for additional sleeping space. WiFi and cable are complementary.

Outdoors, you’ll find yourselves in a landscape of unparalleled beauty with access to numerous outdoor activities. Enjoy your view of the Enchantments from either of the spacious outdoor decks while planning your next adventure.

During summer, Icicle Creek ("The Icicle") is prime for tubing, rafting, and paddleboarding. Inner-tube or raft from Buddington Haus to the Village after a few hours of gentle floating - or you can raft the Wenatchee with professional guides for an exciting and safe adventure. When the salmon season is open, the "Rock" below the house provides an opportunity for the catch of a
lifetime. A drive up the canyon along Icicle Road provides access to all levels of hiking, picnicking, backpacking, fishing, and rock climbing. Bring bikes and enjoy the seven-mile loop into Leavenworth.

Come during the winter and use Buddington Haus as a home base for winter sports. Stevens Pass is just over 37 miles away, Mission Ridge Ski & Board Resort is just under 38 miles away, and definitely try out the Leavenworth Winter Sports Club’s things to do five miles from the home. This includes the only ski jump on the entire west coast!

Leavenworth Village is a charming place where you can enjoy shopping, sample the local restaurants, wineries, and biergartens, or listen to live entertainment. Find Christmas decorations, a good book, or the perfect gift in a carefully curated local shop. Visit Village Art in the Park to peruse art forms of all types from local and regional artists. To enjoy your own homemade meal, we recommend Dan’s Food Market just over three miles away - be sure to try some of their delicious local prepared breads, smoked salmon, and roasted coffees. In summer, the Leavenworth Summer Theater is a must but guests should make reservations early. The musicals at the Hatchery are within walking distance and "The Sound of Music" is at the Ski Hill Amphitheater. Buddington Haus (and the family) welcome you!

*Please be aware, this is not a party house. We respect our neighbors and the quiet, natural environment that makes Buddington Haus an all-seasons retreat
for families.

*Fishing licenses are available at Der Sportsman downtown, or at Midway Village & Grocery at Fish Lake.

Beth M. Jan 2022
Love this cozy, friendly, welcoming home. We had roaring fires each night and relaxed from our days of driving in the amazing mountains. Wonderful well stocked kitchen too.
I would love to have had the driveway cleared; it was dangerous for two 75+ year old ladies. Kind neighbors had to get us out of a snow bank in the drive. Then I fell at the car at the top of the drive. I wish I had been given the option of having the driveway cleared so I could say 5 stars +. Thank you for a very special home.
Manager response:
Thank you for the review, Beth. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. We apologize we do not clear snow from the driveways. We are sorry to hear you fell. We do hope you are ok and contacted our 24/7 guest services to make a report. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope we have the chance to host you again.

This place needs updated for the price per night.
The house is great. 2 Rooms upstairs one with a King size bed (super comfy). Kitchen was perfect for our Thanksgiving holiday and having two dining spaces was also nice for set up. They had a couple of the spices I had forgotten also.
The lowest level is great for kids, has a hide-a-bed (super old & stiff but my 10 yr old didn't mind) and ping pong table. I would rate this place a 5 star with furniture upgrades and home maintenance. Couches are absolutely TERRIBLE. (all 3 of them) No TV's to watch movies and/or football. There is one box TV in the basement.. the size of a notebook. We were smart and packed a smart TV and steamed the games. The fireplaces were ran majority of the time, we loved it.. however we had smoke issues in all areas. The upstairs was very smoky when we went to bed, we ended up having to put a fan in the windows to clear all of the smoke. The stacks certainly need to be cleaned & swept. The 10 AM check out is a bit unreasonable (Especially with a 4 PM check in). We had children with us and having to make breakfast and pack up after 4 nights and a large holiday, it was a struggle. The cleaning folks were parked outside before 10 waiting for us to finishing packing out. We left about 9:45..
Manager response:
Hi, Justin! Thank you for letting us know about your experience. The smoke is caused by inversion when the stack is filled with cold air settled at the bottom making it difficult for the warm/hot smoke to escape. This usually occurs when a fire is started and set to blaze right up rather than allowing for a gradual build. The stacks were just swept out a few weeks ago by a professional service. Hopefully you'll consider returning again now that you better know what to expect.

We (2) enjoyed our stay at Buddington Haus and will likely return again. The home is very spacious, the bed we slept in was pretty new and firm - to our liking. The location is convenient to the town, but not too close, and to the hiking trails. We loved sitting on the deck with our coffee in the morning, watching the daylight arrive, and listening as the birds woke up. A suggestion for the fall season would be to provide some fly strips for the house, the flies were pretty active this time of year. Also, the utensils in the kitchen drawers seemed to be tossed in with no rhyme or reason so that it was difficult to locate a needed item. The silverware drawer was well supplied and organized.
Wanda N. Aug 2021
The deck was a bonus. Lots of windows to open and since it was surrounded by trees rather than neighbors it felt like a wonderful out of town setting
Tonya T. Jan 2021
For the money I had to rate it as a was good..but very outdated very. The was an ant problem in the kitchen and upstairs bathroom. Which I do understand with the seasons. But it can be a little bit more controlled..I was very disappointed when I wanted to cook the griddle did not work,which I just used the stove. But I went to grab the plates and there was dryer food on them and some dirty everything I used I had to reclean them.under the beds where not clean...I was so excited to come and stay in a new place for the First time and was very disappointed. I was uncomfortable sleeping there bit everywhere else was booked...also the smoke smell never goes away..didnt use it at all.for the amount I spent for 2 days was not worth it. I'm sorry to leave a unpleasant review but the amount that was charged even for the cleaning fee was not worth it. Especially i had to clean everything we ate off of and didn't really use the house because of this.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Tonya. We are sorry the home did not meet your expectations. Thank you for bringing some items to our attention that need some TLC. We have forwarded your feedback to the local staff to ensure future guests experience a clean and accommodating home for their stay. We confirm that even though the griddle on the stovetop is not working, there is a large portable electric griddle placed above the ovens ready to be used. We will readdress the ant issue with an exterminator. We hope you choose to stay with us again!

Only thing we’re noticed is really low light on dining and kitchen
Jill S. Oct 2020
Lots of room.
David M. Sep 2020
Buddington Haus was beautiful nice quiet great place to have a great time. Could be more through with cleaning . Had a relaxing weekend.
Amber S. Sep 2020
I give it 4 stars only because the house it’s self is really outdated... However it does have somewhat of a homey vibe so it wasn’t too bad just wish it was more inviting. We also had an issue with check in, wasn’t able to get into the house until 45 min after the 4pm check in due to cleaning not being done. We had to wait in town until they were finished. However, Bill the property manger refunded me $100 for being late and it wasn’t terrible. The house is huge and definitely had enough room for all the people in our group! Bedrooms are spacious. Nice kitchen with tons of kitchen utensils! Overall we had a blast! I would definitely rent this house again. Thanks for a great time!
Mario S. Jul 2020
I really enjoyed the scenery, I would go again.
Robert S. Jul 2020
The large space for being together in a quiet location was great.
Lorie L. Dec 2019
What a wonderful home and stocked with everything you would need. Our grandkids loved the ping pong table and being able to run around inside because of the layout. The stove top knobs were a bit tricky. We would definitely rent this home again.
Justin T. Sep 2019
The house was beautiful and laid out very well for big groups :) I cannot wait to go back!
KURT B. Sep 2019
It was a little bit into the countryside, away from the traffic, exactly what we needed. Great views, great location. The place was perfect for 3 couples. Plenty of room. Love the porch. Gazed at the stars and told stories for hours every night. It had everything you need.
Caleb C. Aug 2019
Buddington Haus is in an amazing area. Right across a small road from the river and surrounded by beautiful scenery. Only a short drive to Front street and anything else Leavenworth has to offer. Definitely would stay here again!
Sarah K. Jul 2019
This home is beautiful inside and out. Very private setting in the ponderosa pines and steps to Icicle River. We loved tubing and the close enough access to Leavenworth. A pleasant surprise for us was the ping pong table downstairs. The teens loved playing each other and trying to beat grandpa - didn’t happen. Loved it all.
Pamela E. Jul 2019
Great space. Loved the kitchen. Location is close to town and Lake Wenatchee. Perfect location for large families. Loved it.
Maura H. Jun 2019
This house was eclectic and comfortable. Enough space, we’ll stoked kitchen and amAzing views!!! The location couldn’t be beat.
Patti E. May 2019
This is a beautiful home and property. Very well maintained and very comfortable. We will be staying again sometime
Taylor B. Apr 2019
I loved this house. It was extremely clean and plenty of space. I know others complained about the smoke smell however it wasn't too bad when we arrived. We opened windows for a little while and the smell was gone the rest of the weekend. I would agree the limited lighting was not pleasant at times but not a deal breaker. This place was perfect for our weekend! Hoping to stay again soon!
Heather Y. Apr 2019
Me, my husband and my two adult kids with their kids stayed here for three days. The house was spacious enough that there was plenty of room for the little ones to roam. This is the second time I’ve stayed here and would highly recommend it. The house is well stocked and very clean. The beds are comfortable. And with three bathrooms, there was no waiting in line to shower and get cleaned up. If you want a nice relaxing vacation, stay here. It’s tucked away in the forest but close to Leavenworth.
Larry B. Mar 2019
This house was not only big enough to accommodate everyone but was more than stocked for everything you could need. Even though we never had a fire the basement has a real strong odor of smoke. Lots of snow all around and very private. Can’t wait to come back this summer and go in icicle creek.
patrick F. Mar 2019
Great size house with everything you need. Nice and clean!
Jody D. Jan 2019
Love the location; the size of the house with plenty of rooms for our family!
Curtis L. Jan 2019
We took full advantage of the well stocked kitchen to make some delicious meals during our stay. The location was perfect. Beautiful views of the river and not too far from the center of Leavenworth. We'll definitely be coming back here.
Brandi T. Jan 2019
The kitchen is amazing and plenty of space for the whole family and little ones.
Steven S. Dec 2018
It’s a large comfortable house
lori s. Dec 2018
The house and view were great. The only complaint I have is that house is hard to find when dark, needs to have light by driveway. Also, it had snowed the day we arrived and driveway wasn't cleaned off, couldn't get car up driveway due to snow. But someone did come with a snowplow later on in evening and cleaned it up. House is stocked with everything needed. Very close to town. Am looking forward to staying during the summer.
MOLLY S. Dec 2018
The house is lovely. Very warm and welcoming. The kitchen is enviable. So big with everything you need to prepare a great meal. Lots of room for family to spread out and enjoy. Or gather in the downstairs family room to watch a movie. We loved every minute and hope to stay again soon! I also really appreciated the Vacasa rep that helped me when I couldn't figure out the lockbox. Total road weary operator error on my part.
Miriam S. Nov 2018
Just outside of town. It was perfect for our girls weekend. Plenty spacious for the six of us. The fire places reminded me of the home I grew up in. Nothing feels more warm and cozy then sitting by the fire drinking hot chocolate.
Marie N. Oct 2018
We had a great weekend celebrating my 30th birthday at Oktoberfest in Leavenworth. This house is perfect for large groups and accommodated us very well. Lots of space to hang out and relax, too. Proximity to downtown also very close (~7 min.).
Sandra B. Oct 2018
House was perfect for 5 single women. Very comfortable and well equipped.
Bucklee E. Oct 2018
We loved this cabin in the woods. The view is beautiful and it is close to Leavenworth. The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of room for our family. The kitchen was stocked with anything you could need! We would love to visit again sometime!
LaDonna N. Sep 2018
Love this visit the house is beautiful and well stocked was very clean and very close to town we had a blast and I hope to stay again next year
Harriet T. Sep 2018
Even though this is listed as a 3 bedroom, it also has a whole downstairs unit with two beds and a futon. The kitchen is better stocked than most rental homes. We had a great time with lots of space! Those with small kids just want to watch out for a deck with big gaps in the railing.
Samuel M. Aug 2018
Loved the out of town cozy feel.
Gert-Jan M. Aug 2018
We loved the location and the surroundings. The house we only used for sleeping and cooking, because of the great weather.
Therese B. Jun 2018
Plenty of room for 7 people spanning 3 generations! House was fully equipped and allowed us to enjoy each other’s company. Beds were very comfortable.
Remy A. May 2018
This home was perfect for our group of 3 couples. From the large kitchen to the beautiful views. The home was well stocked and cozy. Highly recommend the home!
John B. Apr 2018
Very good location. Large three level home; great for two couples/families. Kitchen untensils/knives need to be replaced. Unusable knives (dull). Lots of antique furniture, books, movies and other amenities around the house, including a full spice rack.
Valerie S. Apr 2018
Great place for family of 8. Every one had their own space. Kitchen is wonderful to work in, despite dull knives. ( We are a cooking family, alas). Wonderful access to all area attractions. Would definitely stay here again. Wish deck had better furnishings.....
Dan D. Feb 2018
We had a great visit, weather was cold and clear perfect for skiing..

Stayed in at nighttime with a cozy fire and cooked some great meals with the family.
Linda H. Feb 2018
We had a great time at the Buddington Haus--it's close to downtown and the house itself has everything! A home away from home...... We will return!
Lisa P. Feb 2018
Pros: well stocked kitchen, comfortable beds/rooms, plenty of bathrooms, ample space
Cons: fire places need attention; kitchen wood stove leaks smoke badly, living room fills with smoke quickly (chimney needs cleaning maybe?). When we arrived, the whole place smelled like a camp fire, so we think the guest before us may have had a similar problem.
All the doors are double bolt locks, keep the key somewhere that you can find it quickly so you can get out of you need to.
Manager response:
We apologize for the smoky smell. There are two wood stoves in use in this home during the winter, so there is definitely a wood smoke odor. This smell isn't a problem so much in the summertime when the wood stoves are not in use. Thanks!
Jody D. Jan 2018
Great home with lots of space! Wish the living room had another couch! Overall, it’s a super family home, close to town & close to everything!
Becky B. Dec 2017
Rustic but accommodating
Aaron B. Nov 2017
This was the most well-stocked vacation rental I've ever stayed in. I loved that the owners did not put away every single personal item. If you like making your own meals this house has a great kitchen space for that. Beds were comfortable and house was really clean. There are 3 levels to this house, so it was great for two families. The kids really liked having their own space on the basement level. Management was very responsive when we had a question.
Kelsie G. Oct 2017
A group of our friends did this house for the weekend of Oktoberfest, and we absolutely loved it. Would stay here again in a heart beat.

Thank you!
Brittany C. Oct 2017
Delightful house, perfect for multiple couples vacationing or with children. Close to downtown.
Karie M. Sep 2017
We easily and comfortably stayed with 2 families, one family of 4 and one family of 3. 2 king beds were awesome! And the kids had fun with the ping pong table and entire floor to call their own. 5 min to town. Great location!
Linda C. Aug 2017
very quiet, great location, so much space
Marla K. Jul 2017
Overall we loved the location of the home. It was close to Leavenworth and outdoor activities. The home was also very peaceful and quiet. It felt like a great get-away. It was also very large and we had plenty of space for our family of 7.
Our only complaint was the ashes from the fireplace hadn't been cleaned from the winter and the house smelled very smokey, which affected my allergies and made breathing difficult. It also felt a little neglected and needs to be updated such as kitchen appliances and utensils. Also, the outdoor seating should at least be covered up when no one is there as they were very dirty.
Jennifer E. Jul 2017
My family and I were very happy we had a wonderful time
Jamie V. Jul 2017
We had looked into hotels in the Leavenworth area and were having a hard time coming up with an affordable place for all of us to stay. I came across this listing and I was hesitant because we had never booked a vrbo before and weren't sure what to expect. We are all very happy that we took a chance! Check in and check out was super easy, just had to get the key from the lockbox when we got there and put it back when we left. The house was lovely, the view was gorgeous and it was so nice to be back off the beaten path in such a peaceful tranquil setting. There were 3 of us on this trip and we all had our own bedrooms and bathrooms with a downstairs bedroom to spare. We had been looking at booking separate rooms at a hotel so this saved us a good amount of money and we had lots of room to spare! In the pictures it's hard to tell if you can see the river or not so I'll let you know that yes, you can see it from the front deck but it's across a little country road. It's a very quite little River and there is a steep bank with some cut-in stairs leading down to it. The view of the mountains is gorgeous throught the trees. It's easy to get into town from the house and only takes about 5 minutes. This is well worth the money especially if you're traveling with a few people. We highly recommend it!
QUINTEN M. Jun 2017
Great house and location. Plenty of sleeping areas and great views! Close to town and Safeway which was nice! Lots of open space in and outside the house to hang out.
Gannon P. May 2017
Great location, great place overall!
Sergey Z. May 2017
Very cute house. A lot of antiques inside make this house come and comfortable.
Laura Z. Apr 2017
This was an awesome place for two families of 4 to meet up. There was ample space for everyone, plenty of seating for big dinners together. However, the home had an overwhelming smell of moth balls.
Manager response:
The Property Manager has gone through the home to remove all old blankets and has deodorized the home as well. Thanks!
Alec G. Feb 2017
This beautiful home is perfect for a family getaway. It's minutes from Leavenworth but secluded in the woods with an amazing view of the river and mountains. We snowshoed into the hills right off the back porch. Our kids made snow forts in the trees. The kitchen is enormous and more thoroughly stocked than any rental house I've ever been to. We loved it and will definitely come back.
Ryan M. Jan 2017
Could use some updating. There is random chemicals in there from the 1970s
Krosbie C. Jan 2017
This tri-level home was great for our multi-family weekend. Our toddlers could run around on the main (2nd) level, as there wasn't too much furniture to hit or break, and easily accommodate all of us eating and hanging out. Once the little ones went to sleep, the bottom level was perfect to watch tv, and have the adults hang out in without making too much noise for sleeping babies. Overall, we will absolutely rent again if we take another family vacation in Leavenworth!
Danni L. Jan 2017
We have 6 people. This house is very big for us and has plenty of space. It has 3 bedrooms and but it comes with two extra single beds on the first level. We enjoyed our stay at this house!
Teresa T. Jan 2017
Great place. We enjoyed and used all three levels of the home.
Sandra R. Dec 2016
The house was great for our family of 9. Plenty of room for everyone!!!
Dennis S. Dec 2016
Our family of 8 adults and 5 children 5 yrs old and under, enjoyed a memorably magical time here, for our first Leavenworth experience! We especially liked the close proximity to town. Beds were comfortable, the very large kitchen was well equipped, and it was always cozy warm. We would stay again . Might even go in the summer!
Leanna M. Nov 2016
Buddington House is a beautiful place to stay!! Cozy & roomy for us all.
Even shared the property with a family of deer! Hopefully get the house for next years trip!! Vacasa was very helpful in making our reservations!!
Thank you
Deborah B. Oct 2016
This house is spacious, located in a wonderful location with an epic view. There is plenty of firewood to keep the rooms toasty.and inviting. We hope to stay here again.
Trevor P. Aug 2016
It was a great location for our family to meet up since we were traveling from the opposite ends of the state.
Elaine W. Aug 2016
This house was just perfect. Lots of room, including 3 bathrooms and two kitchens. The upstairs kitchen has a deck, and every known gadget. Beds were comfy. Lots of good hiking in the area. We enjoyed hiking up Sauer's Mountain, and the Icicle Gorge trail, both 4-5 mile hikes. The first gains some elevation and has wonderful views, the second is flatter and follows the river through the forest. Great day hikes for our group. Leavenworth is charming, and we ate very well - we can recommend the brats at Munchen Haus.
Karen C. Jul 2016
This house easily fit our family of seven, plus two more friends. There was enough space to spread out and feel relaxed. We liked being away from town just a bit, and saw a lot of wildlife, just from the house. Appliances worked great; the kids loved the piano. A fun house for kids--the swinging bar doors, lots of stairs, etc. Everything was really clean and great!
Richard D. Jul 2016
Beautiful location and big huge house. If you like history and old books this place is filled with it!!
