Totally blown away by the property
Our hiking group (Sole Sisters) reserved the Riverside Home for 3 nights. There were 9 of us and we had plenty of room to accommodate us. We were totally blown away by the property – it is so beautiful. Wonderful location – we walked into town. We walked along the River and we also did a couple of hikes in the area. We cooked wonderful dinners every night including doing a murder mystery dinner on the last night. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare some great meals. We enjoyed the fireplace outside in the evenings. The house was clean and we had more than enough linens, which were excellent quality. We can see why it was voted #1 in the NW. Cannot say enough about this property – the ladies all want to come back again next year. Thank you for providing us with a wonderful home to stay in.

Highly recommend this place to anyone
[O]ur stay was just fantastic, the place was clean and relaxing to stay in and Darillyn was amazing to work with up front with her professionalism and organized manner that she took care of things. I will highly recommend this place to anyone and will look forward to coming back some day! thank you! Oh, the multiple eagle sightings were a bonus and the group of wild turkeys were fun to watch happily grazing for food one morning in the yard.

Gorgeous house close to downtown Leavenworth
This home was incredible and worked perfectly for our group of 8. I can’t even describe how beautiful the scenery is from the back and side yards (the house itself is amazing, too). Our entire group spent many hours just sitting and gazing. Between the river view and the orchards it was truly pristine. The drive into town is 10ish minutes and the hot tub was a great bonus! The kitchen had everything we needed and beds were super comfy. Thank you so much and we look forward to staying there again next year!

Gorgeous homes, very luxurious
The pictures don’t do it justice. Gorgeous homes, very luxurious, spacious, very up to date kitchen set up and the view of the river is spectacular! There are a few fun things you wouldn’t know until you stay there yourself, bookshelves full, fully stocked.

Stayed at this home for a girls trip and it was PERFECT
Stayed at this home for a girls trip and it was PERFECT. It is secluded, has ample space, not far from town, and all communications with the property management were clear, timely and pleasant. I would highly recommend this home for anyone coming to Leavenworth with a large group. The home itself is awesome and has up-to-date features and beautiful views. The access road was plowed so we were able to have our transportation (shuttle van) pick us up and drop off at the door as well. Hoping to return in the future for another group trip!

We truly enjoy the comfort of the home.
This is our 7th year staying at River Heights Home. We are never disappointed. The home is always well kept. It is very comfortable for all 4 couples. We enjoy spending the long weekend at this very private setting with great views. It is a treat to sit and just gaze out the windows to the winter wonderland. Leavenworth is just a short drive away where there is plenty of shopping, food and drink if you chose not to cook yourself in the spacious kitchen. We truly enjoy the comfort of the home. We look forward to our return trip next year.

Love location to town and right on river.
Amazing house!!! Love location to town and right on river. Beds crazy wonderful. Everyone woke rested and loved sheets. We stayed as a small family reunion. Fit everyone’s needs, including 2 toddlers. Loved outdoor fireplace, hot tub and volleyball!
Was ok for us but only downside I noted is it is a shared property with two other homes. If you had certain expectations ask who else is renting the other home that sleeps 20 and the loft that sleeps 6 or something. Privacy might be something to consider and didn’t see that explained well via vrbo.

River Heights was an absolutely beautiful house and property! We came for Oktoberfest, but this place was really a highlight. Incredible kitchen, perfect views, great beds. Set in pear orchards, overlooking the river with bald eagles and deer nearby, it was just a treat to be there. All ten of us give it a 10!

Amazing place right on the river
A large group of us (18) recently stayed in the Riverside Cabin and Loft Suite, and we all could not stop talking about how much fun we had. The cabin and loft suite have the unique ability to seem like you’re staying in a “traditional” cabin in the mountains, but both were very modern and nice on the inside. There was plenty of space for all of us, both inside and out. One of the best things about the place were the grounds and surrounding area, which is something we really valued considering our large group size. There’s tons of lawn space for games and just hanging out, as well as having private access to your own sandy beach right on the river. Can’t get much better than that! Plus, it’s only a short 15 minute walk into downtown Leavenworth if you want to experience the many great restaurants and shops the town has to offer. Overall, we had an amazing time and would definitely recommend it to anyone and everyone!

Amazing location perched above the river. Very roomy, serene home close to town. Ideal location for a big group get away.

A Place You Can Truly Relax In!
Almost two years later and we had the opportunity to come back and stay in this beautiful home again! We love that it fits larger groups and people can spread out over the multiple levels of the home. My favorite is relaxing by the fire with the beautiful windows overlooking the river. If it hadn’t been pouring down rain we would’ve used the outdoor fire pit and listened to the rushing river. But it’s a house you want to sit in and be cozy in when it’s pouring outside so we were happy regardless.
I have nothing negative to say about this home. It is beautiful and is a place you can truly relax in. We also love that it is a two minute drive to Leavenworth and all the cute restaurants and shops the town has to offer!
Not to mention its proximity to Safeway for that last minute grocery need.
We have stayed in several homes in the Leavenworth area and this is without a doubt our favorite.
The rental staff also made our experience pleasant and it was so simple to reserve this home and have all the info we needed for our stay.
I highly recommend this rental!

Maui Family enjoys a bit of Paradise in Leavenworth
We are from Maui, Hawaii and were looking for a place to stay that was “outside the box”. I googled places in the “mountains” and came upon Leavenworth and knew nothing about it. Then I researched place that could accommodate our kids and grandkids a group of 14. As a Realtor on Maui I have seen and sold some fabulous vacation rental properties so it takes a lot to impress me. What I will say is the home was just as presented on the VRBO post and it was a pleasure to enjoy this home with our ohana ( family) It was very clean and is a well designed home for a larger group. Loved the access to the river and the large grassy area for the kids to run and play. On our walk to town we were greeted by some deer. Just sitting inside and embracing the views out the windows was so relaxing. Many of our family enjoyed the outside Jacuzzi. The property management company was very professional in all aspects. Mahalo and A Hui Hou~~~~until we meet again.

The house, the views, the staff– all were incredible
Absolutely gorgeous– the house, the views, the staff– all were incredible. Every view from this house is scenic, whether your frame includes the mountain valley going in to Leavenworth, the river below, the orchards around you and the deer that stop by for a taste of pears, the surrounding pines, or the patios and gardens that surround the property. A perfect place to celebrate important times with your loved ones, whether grilling outside with a panoramic view or playing games inside while the snow piles up outside. This was our second time to stay here and we LOVED it. Thank you Darillyn and the staff for making sure that our stay was incredible. We will be back!

I Can’t Wait to Go Back!
My family and I had a wonderful time at River Heights! The house is amazing! We really enjoyed seeing the deer in the orchard and the tubers floating past. We loved how close it is to town and even the wineries. I can’t wait to go back. We had my 81 year old dad and the place was perfect for him; plus my 11 year old and my 14 year old nephew, there was something for everyone!

So much space for our family to spread out!
Lovely house, yard and beachfront. We had apparently broken a faucet in the kitchen and were initially going to be charged for it. Since we hadn’t realized it was broken and it happened to have been newly installed, the manager was able to chalk it up to faulty installation (it had just been installed before our stay) which made a lot more sense since we were a mellow group. I was very appreciative of the easy communication and prompt resolution of this problem. We definitely plan on staying again!

Great luxury escape
We came to leavenworth for the Ale Fest, deciding that was a great way to celebrate my wife’s birthday. And Wow! what an amazing cabin. Everything is very well kept and well stocked. We brought 12 friends up with us and we weren’t crowded at all. plenty of room for everyone to enjoy themselves and the beautiful scenery and property. Highly recommend if you are looking for a comfortable weekend getaway.

Thank you for Sharing
Thank you for sharing your beautiful vacation home with us. The breathtaking views and comfortable surroundings served as the perfect backdrop for a truly blessed family vacation. We loved the comfortable bed downstairs and lazing on the “king’s lounge.” Mom loved watching the river. Dad really enjoyed trying new recipes in the kitchen. And, of course, we all loved the hot tub! Thank you so much!

Met Our High Expectations
Every year our family of grown kids and “grands” seek out a different destination. There are 8 adults & 5 “littles” … a big group. Darillyn is awesome to work with and assured me (as a high end VRBO owner) that this property would meet my high expectations! She was right! It was first class. The littles had room to run while the bigs had all the amenities of a home! We live in Coeur d’Alene, so this was a tall order to fill. This was perfect!

Great Setup for our Group
My husband and I got married here in February 2015. We rented the house with our parents and a few of our closest friends. It was a great set up for our group and we never felt crowded (there were 12 of us). The setting right on the river was stunning and we lucked out with clear weather hovering around a balmy 60F. We held our ceremony outside near the fireplace and took great advantage of the awesome kitchen set-up and sound system during this celebratory weekend. The cabin was a short drive into central Leavenworth where we had our rehearsal dinner and some post-ceremony fun at the hat shop and Icicle Brewing. This was the perfect setting for our winter wedding and we look forward to coming back for our anniversaries in the future.

Awesome Family Vacation/Board of Directors Retreat
This was the perfect place for our board of directors retreat (which luckily happens to be our close friends and family). First of all the place was clean and very comfortable. It had everything we needed from a hot tub to a great kitchen with all the necessary tools for the “professional chefs” in our group. Our group included dads with young children who loved going to the sled park just a few miles away, young adults who loved being close to skiing and snowboarding, a game room downstairs to let the kids play, a big table with an amazing view where we actually did hold our board of directors meeting, and a fast Internet for those of us who still had a business to manage and did I mention the kitchen… Amazing. We loved the big living room where people gathered after dinner and shared stories. The only problem was our stay was too short!!!

Family Christmas Reunion
Our large family of 34-42 people, who attended depending on the night/day, were very comfortable with all of the houses. Due to the size, we rented all 3 rentals of the Vacation Home, Riverside Cabin and the Loft Unit. It had all of the convenience of home and much more. It’s close to downtown, so about a 20 minute walk was all that was needed to be in and out of the festivities and shops in the town center. Our family has been going to Leavenworth every other year for 18 years, and this property is by far the best, most convenient, best furnished, with most helpful staff than we have had in our previous 8 other Christmas reunion years.

Great House, Amazing Location
We really enjoyed our stay in the Riverside Cabin this year. We were in town for the Oktoberfest celebration, and the location of this house was perfect as it’s only a 10-15 minute walk to the beer halls. Played frisbee on the grass, and enjoyed the sandy beach right on the river. Kitchen was spacious and stocked with plenty of glasses, mugs, plates and silverware. Dining room adequately fit 10 people, though it was a little tough to sneak past those seated at the table to get back into the kitchen. Hot tub has a nice view of the river, and was perfect for relaxing after all that chicken dancing. There were separate towels for the hot tub so we didn’t have to use the ones from the bathrooms. Beds were comfortable. I would definitely recommend the Riverside Cabin!

Great Birthday Celebration
We rented the house for a girls getaway/50th birthday celebration. To this day, we talk about the fun we had, the location, the stunning view and great time overall. We spent hours in the Adirondack chairs overlooking the river and could not have had a better time unless it was to have breakfast around the island in the kitchen…what a treat to sit, chat, munch and enjoy!

What a lovely place for a vacation and a wedding!
We were searching for a suitable place to have a small, private wedding when we found your River Heights home on VRBO. We couldn’t have been more pleased with the home, the loft, the grounds, or the town of Leavenworth. We especially loved the cooler temperatures having come from Texas, Southern California, and Louisiana in August. All those attending the wedding from both families thoroughly enjoyed our time together and the beautiful countryside surrounding us. Our wedding day was picture perfect, the location was breathtaking, the ceremony was beautiful, and many precious memories were made. We are so glad we found River Heights. Many thanks for sharing it with us.

Absolutely stunning place located on the riverbed and with a backdrop to the mountains. Took my wedding photos here because of gorgeous setting. Probably one of the most picturesque places in central Washington w/ its own woods and private beach! This is a truly special spot!
Elena M from Loma Linda, California – Stayed March 2014 – Review Source: Yelp
Our family of 26, including 2 babies, rented the Riverside Vacation Home, as well as the River Loft over the garage. This rental totally exceeded expectations, even as beautiful as the photos are on VRBO. It truly is outfitted for a large group, with every thing you could possibly need, including a full-sized laundry room. The three master suites are luxury hotel. We were able to eat all together at the conference room table downstairs. And…as beautiful as the house was, we simply lived outside. Multiple decks, manicured HUGE lawn with sumptuous grass, cement patios with LOTS of tables and seating, not to mention the river beach with fine, fine sand. So convenient to town, and so much to do. We will definitely be back. Thank you for the best family trip ever!

Wonderful Weekend Celebration
We had such a great weekend getaway at River Heights! The house was perfect for our large group — we had 13 people in the main house, and a couple with their baby in the separate loft. The grounds are immaculate and the house is beautiful and incredibly spacious. We loved the indoor/outdoor stereo system and the fact that the house was so private — we never felt like we were disturbing the neighbors which was nice.
It was a weekend to remember and I’d strongly recommend River Heights to anyone looking for a high-quality Leavenworth Rental. We’ll definitely be back to visit in the future.

Perfect spot for our family get together. There was plenty to do for all ages – hiking, shopping, relaxing, etc. The setting is absolutely beautiful – the river view and backyard were peaceful and perfect. The kitchen was amazingly outfitted with everything we needed to cook a meal. Thank you!
