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!
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 🙂
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
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.

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