Leavenworth the Locals Way


Featured Beach House

Unique in both its striking design and its stunning location, Edgewater Lodge is a beautiful 4 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom lodge that sleeps 10 and features a huge wrap-around deck with hot tub, to fully embrace the surrounding, breathtaking view! Located right on the edge of the Wenatchee River in the Cascade Mountains of Washington, this Destination Leavenworth Edgewater Lodge has a majestic view of Tumwater Mountain, and the lovely village of Leavenworth beyond.



Edgewater Lodge is constructed in three separate, but connected, sections. The “main” unit includes a beautifully decorated and very comfortable living room with a gas log stove and huge windows that frame the breathtaking river view and mountain backdrop. It’s the perfect place for dining and catching up with family and friends.




From the living room, an outdoor breezeway leads to the spacious master bedroom suite complete with queen bed, private master bathroom, picturesque view of the river, cozy gas log stove and TV.


This lodge itself is set back from the road and distant neighbors, creating a quiet, peaceful and very private setting. However, it’s also very close to many hiking trails, restaurants, shops, theaters and popular ski and snowboard spots.


A Night Around Town

Take the short drive (or walk!) from Edgewater Lodge  to the quaint Bavarian themed village of downtown Leavenworth. One of the best things to do in the village is check out the German-style specialty shops and restaurants that offer things like German cheese, wine, chocolate, cuckoo clocks, nutcrackers and beer steins. You can even tour a nutcracker museum! If you are looking for a traditional German meal try Munchen Haus. However, if you’re looking for more of a culinary experience, try Mana, a local, organic restaurant that offers a 3 hour, 8 course “journey of the senses.”


Don’t forget the wine and beer! Eastern Washington’s award winning wines are showcased by local vintner’s tasting rooms throughout town. And if you are looking for craft beer, The Icicle Brewing Company is the place to go.  For late night live music head to The Loft . Or if you’re feeling like a getting some culture, check the schedule at  Icicle Creek Center for the Arts  for a concert or play.


The Perfect Morning

After making breakfast in your fully-equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances at Edgewater Lodge, grab an espresso to go at one of the best coffee spots in town, J5 Coffee. Once sufficiently caffeinated head out on a hike along one of the many breathtaking hiking trails around Leavenworth. Some favorites are Icicle Gorge, as well as the trails at Waterfront Park. If you come during winter you might be doing snowshoeing instead, and there are plenty of beautiful trails for that as well.


Skiing and Snowboarding in Leavenworth

Leavenworth is a natural paradise and with each season there is a host of various activities to explore. From hiking, biking, whitewater rafting, paddle boarding, kayaking, fly fishing, horseback riding, snowshoeing, to cross country skiing and more!  However skiing and snowboarding are some of the more popular activities in Leavenworth, especially as we head into the winter season. And lucky for you, Edgewater Lodge is about a short 45 minute drive to Steven’s Pass, one of the best places to go skiing in the Cascades. If you have little ones, the more tame Ski Hill is a perfect spot for them.

Snowboarding Winter Snowboard Alps Snow

Leavenworth is truly a unique and extraordinary place that sits in the midst of the majestic mountains, verdant meadows, fragrant pine forests and rolling rivers.
