An Absolutely Lovely Time at River Heights Loft
We had an absolutely lovely time staying at the River Heights Loft! The loft looked even better in person, with stunning vaulted ceilings, incredible 360 views, comfortable furnishings, and excellent guest amenities (hot tub, fireplace, kitchenette, etc). We were within 5-10 minutes of the the center of town, and equally close to outdoor activity centers for snowshoeing, skiing, and tubing. The place is not only beautiful and excellently located, but well-appointed with thoughtful additions for guests- mini toiletries, extra towels and washcloths, hairdryer, guest robes, Keurig stocked with k-cups, etc. Additionally, I was able to work with their guest host to coordinate a surprise for my partner! For a reasonable fee, she was able to shop for and set up an arrangement of balloons, champagne, and chocolate strawberries, awaiting us upon check in. It was a lovely addition that made our visit extra special! We certainly look forward to returning to the loft next time we visit Leavenworth! While the loft shares the property with another guest rental house, it did not impact our stay in any way. In fact, we think it makes for a great opportunity to invite our families to join us next time, while still allowing us to have a private space, by renting both buildings!
River Heights Home and Loft – Another wonderful holiday at Riverside Properties
We stayed at River Heights again over the holiday break this year, and once again had a brilliant experience. This time we rented the loft over the garage as well, and were joined by an additional family. There was less snow this year so we got to see the place “uncovered”, and it turns out to be gorgeous and delightful either way. Darrilyn & the staff were great about communicating before, during, and after. We made more use of the upright piano this year for a number of solo & group sing-a longs; all in all another wonderful holiday.
Our 9th year at River Heights
This was our 9th year at the River Heights Home. This is our Home Away From Home. We have grown very comfortable in this house, where we can just let our stresses go, relax with a cocktail or glass of wine, and remember good times of the past while catching up on all our current adventures. So much has changed in the world, but a good group of friends help everyone stay sane. This was the first year where we could clearly see the Fireworks Show, from town, out of the living room windows. That was followed by the “Blood Moon” which was just beautiful. Love the new Cider Bar in town. Until next year!
River Heights is such a beautiful home with unreal views!
Our families came here 2 years ago. Eight came back this weekend again! We had such a blast and it is such a beautiful home with unreal views! Everything is so natural and relaxing here, It’s breathtaking. God bless you and your family! Thank you so much for opening up your home for our family to stay in!
The Riverside Vacation Home is our Dream Vacation Spot!
Our family LOVES this home! It really is our Dream Vacation Spot!
We Loved Our Stay At The Riverside Cabin
We loved our stay at the Riverside Cabin. The kitchen was very well stocked and there was plenty of room for all our family to be so comfortable. Great location to Leavenworth. We would definitely stay here again.
We definitely will come back to the Riverside Vacation Home
Our entire family – from my mom, through all her children and grandchildren, plus ones, totally enjoyed our stay. We definitely will come back as soon as we can get the group to agree to a calendar date. Many Thanks!
We appreciate your attention to detail at the Riverside Cabin
Thank you for sharing your beautiful house! This setting is so spectacular. We celebrated our grandson’s 9th birthday, my husband’s 70th and Thanksgiving here. We enjoyed everything your home has to offer and we appreciate your attention to detail. We had 10 adults and 7 “littles” here – all together, and celebrating our happy family. The deer and quail in the backyard were an added bonus! Thank you so much.
Beautiful Home and Wonderful Memories – Riverside Vacation Home
Granny B’s 80th Birthday. This is a beautiful home and we now have wonderful memories. Kids came from all over the country and had a great reunion. Would love to do an annual trip but will have to wait cause we have a huge wedding this year.
Julie was wonderful and we loved the personal touches of Birthday Balloons and gift bag.
Our 2nd Home Riverside Vacation Home
Our multi family vacation! This is our 3rd year and now it feels like our 2nd home. Always fun and relaxing. Our favorite part is game night and prizes downstairs! Wonderful home for our large group. Julie, the guest coordinator, is a fabulous addition to the staff.
What an amazing property with a great location!
We had a large family gathering here and the accommodations couldn’t have been more perfect. The property management was very responsive to questions. The house was right on the river and even had beach access with a great swimming hole for the kids. Downtown Leavenworth was an easy walk from the house. I would definitely recommend this place to others.
Well appointed home away from our far-flung-home!
Our annual family vacation was wonderful. Your home provided the comfort and space and we tried to provide the fun, companionship and everything else. Success!
A Must Have ~ Binoculars
A set of binoculars belongs on the “strongly recommended” list. There is a birds net with babies and a bird that sits in a tree to eat his/her fish daily. It’s pretty neat to watch, BUT, watch out for the bird “poo” right before the end of the feeding. It’s pretty large 🙂
The view, the house, the location!!!!
We had a wonderful time here.
The pictures don’t do this lovely property justice. The view is amazing. We loved it here so much we barely spent anytime in Leavenworth. The entire experience from booking to check out was very easy. We will definitely return.
A beautiful property!
Seclusion and privacy is unmatched. Sits above the Wenatchee River and beautiful orchards. The Loft is very tastefully decorated with all the amenities. Love the heated tile bathroom floor. A favorite place of ours.
Its absolutely beautiful up at River Heights
What an amazing vacation. I had a group of people getting together from multiple states and needed to find a spot that was large enough to host everyone. The house was in amazing condition when we arrived and the view was incredible. The house is conveniently located close to downtown and Safeway. The management team was extremely helpful and accommodating. This will defiantly be a return destination for us in the future.
These houses are absolutely spectacular!!! We had a very large group that stayed at the Riverside Vacation home, loft and Riverside Cabin. Everyone had ample space to spread out and enjoy themselves. Being next to the river was breathtaking! All the amenities you would need are there. I have had multiple people they are having withdrawals from the amazing weekend at Riverside! Highly recommend for family reunions, wedding weekends, corporate events, etc. You will not be disappointed! Excellent customer service as well.
House was awesome!
House was awesome! Volleyball, jacuzzi, beautiful house. What’s not to like? The water is super clean. We went in September so it was really cold but it was still fun.
River Heights Stay 2018
We stayed at River Heights for 4 nights between Christmas and New Years. We had 3 families with a total of 6 adults and 5 kids (ages 16 months to 11 years). It’s not always easy to find a rental that can accommodate the varying needs of this range of kids (and families with different preferences for outdoor activities), but this place absolutely nailed it. The house is in a knockout location on the top of a hill with great views in essentially every direction, and essentially total privacy from any other property – but only 10 min drive into town, which we did multiple times to see the lights, go to restaurants, and go tubing. We had a great snowfall while we were there, and were able to carve multiple of our own sledding runs down the hill just out the front door, ranging from very mild (16 month old!) to more energetic (adults!) The stone floors throughout much of the common areas are heated, so when we came inside, we basically shed all our outdoor clothes, put them on the floor, and within a few hours they were dry . The kitchen worked great for a bunch of people, and the outdoor hot tub was a nice perk, enjoyed by parents and kids alike. The house is wired for sound, which is an unexpected detail that really helped bring home the holiday feel (we fired up our own playlists on our phones). We absolutely loved our time here and will definitely return.

Nice home and friendly staff
Nice home and friendly staff
The River Heights Home is amazing and so spacious
What a wonderful, fun filled weekend! This house is amazing and so spacious. The hot tub was perfect after a day on the slopes or spent in town. The kitchen and living room were perfect for hanging out and playing games. It is safe to say that all four couples thoroughly enjoyed their stay.
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.
Extremely well thought out, and huuuuuge!!
We have stayed at many vacation homes, and this is by far theee best! Extremely well thought out, and huuuuuge!! If you are looking for a vacation home in Leavenworth- look no further!
Beautiful views and great location
The house house has plenty of space. We had a group of 11 and all had enough room. Beautiful views and great location.
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!
Thank you so much for this wonderful place! The house is gorgeous, and we loved spending time on the beach. We couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay!
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!
3rd Annual Trip
Thankful for great friends this weekend – our 5th annual trip and our 3rd here at River Heights. Beautiful sunshine, great food, laughter and space to rest We will be back again to our “Leavenworth Home-away-from-home. Thank you for sharing your amazing home so we can make these memories – our kids are growing up so fast and we will always have these fun memories!
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!
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.
Great Setting for Family Reunion
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!
