If you want to visit somewhere with plenty of old-world charm and fun activities, you're in luck! A lovely Bavarian style permeates the entire village and a stay in one of our Leavenworth rentals promises easy access to the unique businesses of this town, while still being within easy reach of all that the scenic North Central Cascades region has to offer.
In Leavenworth itself, you will find an endearing and lovely city. Visitors immediately notice that all the buildings (even certain well-known fast food restaurants and grocery stores) are fully decked out in Bavarian-style architecture. Speakers broadcast faint polka music near the main street, and many of the businesses have fun German themes. Souvenir shops sell everything from authentic nutcrackers to music boxes and other gifts, and there are ample fantastic restaurants.
Spend an afternoon sampling the bratwurst, pretzels, and fondue, washed down with a refreshing pint. Of course, if you're in the mood for something a little different, you can easily order pizza, burgers, or even crepes, then try some wine tastings from local wineries.
This is truly a special town that will keep you coming back for more! If you're staying in one of our Leavenworth cabins during the warmer months you will want to check out the wonderful Waterfront Park, where you can enjoy nature walks, birdwatching, and even fishing and rafting on the Wenatchee River. In the colder months, skiers and snowboarders flock to this region's many mountains, and Leavenworth is blanketed with a layer of snow that makes the town feel even more festive.
There are many events held throughout the year, including a fun tree-lighting ceremony around the holidays, an accordion celebration, the wonderful Maifest in May, and of course the most popular, the famous Leavenworth Oktoberfest celebration!
Whether you're touring nearby breweries and wineries, perusing the Nutcracker Museum, taking a wintery sleigh ride at Eagle Creek Ranch, or leisurely exploring this charming town, you will have a smile on your face throughout your visit. With so many wonderful indoor and outdoor attractions nearby, every visitor will soon find their favorite!
Here in Central Washington, you will enjoy gorgeous scenery in every direction, ranging from snow-capped mountain peaks to raging rivers to green valleys and more! To get to your Leavenworth lodging from the bustling metropolis of Seattle, simply take a scenic 115 mile drive east. Along the way you will drive over Stevens Pass, breathe in pine-scented fresh mountain air, and hear the sounds of the Wenatchee River rapids flowing downhill.
If you're coming into Leavenworth from beautiful Spokane or other cities to the east, you will drive by hills, valleys, and fruit orchards on your way into town. In fact, this area is a fantastic place for agritourism, and the nearby city of Wenatchee - located just 23 miles down the road - is famous for its apple, cherry, and pear orchards. Nature's bounty is on full display in this part of the state, and when you stay in one of our Leavenworth cabins you will be close to all the farms, breweries, and wineries - as well as all the other cities and attractions - in this wonderful area.
