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 cabins 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. You'll immediately notice that all the buildings (even certain well-known fast food restaurants and grocery stores) are fully decked out in Bavarian-style architecture. Polka music drifts throughout the main street, and many of the businesses have fun German themes. Souvenir shops sell everything from authentic nutcrackers to music boxes, and there are ample fantastic restaurants.
Spend an afternoon sampling the bratwurst, pretzels, and fondue, washed down with a refreshing pint. If you're in the mood for something a little different, you can easily order pizza, burgers, or crepes, then try some wine tastings from local wineries.
If you're staying in one of our Leavenworth cabin rentals during the warmer months, check out the wonderful Waterfront Park, where you can enjoy nature walks, birdwatching, and even fishing and rafting on the Wenatchee River. During the winter, 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 than usual.
Seasonal events are central to Leavenworth life, 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. To get to your Leavenworth vacation rental 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 the pine-scented fresh mountain air, and hear the sounds of the Wenatchee River rapids.
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 hub 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 in this wonderful area.
