Some Comments from our Guests
“The perfect choice for our 10th anniversary”
“... the fall colors throughout the valley and along the creek were breathtaking ...”
“ ... best cabin we’ve stayed at yet! We’ll come back in a minute. Love it.”
“What a wonderful retreat!! The privacy, scenery & a hot tub to die for! ...”
“The weekend was amazing! Staying here definitely made the whole experience unforgettable. We plan on coming back to visit in the summer and again next Christmas.”
“What a great place to come and get away from it all for a while. Close enough to town to be convenient, yet far enough away to have the seclusion and privacy we were looking for. The sun came out everyday, leaving a clear sky at night to view stars from the hot tub.”
“We enjoyed watching the mountain goats and deer. The Gnomes add a nice touch...”
"I love the diverse spaces to suite various moods; dozing in the hammock, reading by the fire in the nook, goat watching from the bench, morning yoga in the sun, having a drink by the grill on a mushroom (?), and swinging in the shade."
"All the wonderful work you and your brother have done to make that cabin cozy and welcoming certainly has paid off. I went around saying, "Her brother did that, and there's the cushion she recently finished". You really are a very good seamstress. Love the little gnomes scattered around...never knew when one would suddenly pop into view."
"Absolutely perfect! We enjoyed everything about your wonderful chalet celebrating our 16th wedding anniversary. The views are breathtaking and the sounds of the creek are a big bonus. We were so impressed with all of the ways you have designed privacy into this cabin."
"We loved the location especially the with our hike to Colchuck Lake right up the road (amazing hike)! We loved the hammock and of course, the hot tub with its spectacular view of the ridge and the stars at night."
"Thanks for thinking of so many details to make this a wonderful get-away! We would love to return someday."
"We had a lovely time at the cabin this weekend. We even got to enjoy a dusting of snow on the tops of the mountains on Sunday morning. The outdoor shower was a fantastic treat and all your improvements look great. I'll certainly be visiting again! I really enjoy the cabin, the mountains, and the whole atmosphere of the area. Thank you!"
"I just wanted write and tell you how much we enjoyed our stay at Icicle Chalet a couple weeks ago. The place was perfect! We loved everything about it -- the location, the privacy, and all the amenities and comforts. Thanks for all your effort to create such a wonderful place to stay."
“The cabin has so many comforts, but the hot tub with the night stars was so relaxing. We have come to Leavenworth every fall for 28 years to see the colors, get apples and pumpkins and your cabin is one of the best memories – the colors around the cabin are absolutely beautiful. Our son chose the reading nook under the stairs instead of a bed – so cozy – everything!”
"The cabin was great! We had such a fun birthday weekend. The gnomes were such great company. My favorite one is Jimi, he lives outside of the hot tub. It was amazing escape with a perfect location. Hans the protector kept a watchful eye over us from his post above the kitchen. "
"Hot tub under the snow one night and stars the next night was wonderful. Amazing weekend, Plenty of things to keep busy, we barely left the cabin."
"This was our first weekend alone in four years!! My fiancé surprised me with a late Valentines to this cabin and he couldn’t have picked a better spot! I absolutely love the views and the snow only made it better. We will be here again! PS: The hot tub was awesome, best part of the trip!"
"Thank you for such an amazing and perfect experience. This was the perfect Valentine’s get away. We loved the cabin and all of its romantic and relaxing features. The fire place and the hot tub were amazing. We definitely plan to return in the future."
“Walked in the door and immediately felt at home! The soothing roar of the Icicle River, patter of rain on the roof, “hot tub from heaven” and the EIGHTEEN GOATS we counted via binoculars all served to reinforce the rejuvenating quality of our stay! Round it all out with a great book, glass of Washington Merlot and Miles Davis on the CD player and you have the equation for pure bliss.”
"We had a fabulous time! Your cabin was perfect for us. My rock climbing son, whose birthday we were celebrating, had a great climb with a friend on the rocks high above your cabin and we could even see the reflection of their helmets."
"We all tried rock climbing just a mile past the cabin on Sun. We were thrilled we could be together and sharing his love of the area and the sport. We will come again to Icicle Chalet, thank you."
"Thank you for creating the ultimate getaway spot! We felt at home the moment we pulled in. The sound of the river so close has been relaxing for us. Of course we loved the hot tub under the stars, we counted 5 satellites. We didn’t spot any goats but we were greeted by a marmot at the front porch. Everything about your cabin and Leavenworth captivated us. We could not imagine a better honeymoon, thanks for making it so special!"
"We had a wonderful time. It was a good time out for me during this very busy season. I will always remember being in the hot tub at night with the snow falling down on my face. Lovely! Plus, I made a couple batches of cookies!"
"We absolutely loved our stay. We went on a hike and spotted mountain goats across the river. The Chalet really makes for a cozy comfy spot. Thanks so much, we will be back again. We started a new tradition and can’t wait to bring the kids next time."
"Thanks for a great weekend. We had a lovely time. My daughter particulary loved the nook. It was her favorite spot to play."
"I lost keeping track of dates, which means it was what was intended to be. Thanks for keeping this place great!"
"This is our second time having the privilege of staying here. Came for the first two days to catch up with a close friend. Then my husband & daughter joined me Sunday for a long weekend. The weather could not have been more beautiful. It was so enjoyable and relaxing! I can say with certainty that we will come again."
"The work put into building this place is awesome! We were appreciating many fine points and putting thoughts in the back of our head for a future building project. This was much needed and divine. Thank you so much for having this place for others to enjoy!"
"We had such a great time at your cabin. It was far more impressive than the pictures on the website which were already impressive. I loved the views. You thought of everything and we enjoyed finding the gnomes. :) I can't wait to come back. I think we are all ready to just book for next year at the same time. I will contact you further when we are ready to do that. Thanks for sharing your cabin with us. "
