Our beautiful house is located at the mouth of Icicle Canyon on Icicle Road, just 3 miles outside of the town of Leavenworth. The Icicle Straw Bale House includes all the comforts of home with ample space for four people. Two bedrooms with very comfortable beds, 2 flat screen smart TV's- one is shared in the family room loft and the other in one of the bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, one with a stand up shower, the other with a claw foot bathtub to soak in; laundry facilities; a full kitchen with everything a cook needs; 24 foot ceilings in the great room, a wood stove, wireless internet, and an assortment of games and books for your use. There is also a deck for enjoying mountain views and the starlit sky! Cozy and inviting, our house offers everything you need for an amazing vacation: a quiet country location, panoramic views of the Cascade Mountains, thousands of stars to gaze at in the clear night sky and the Bavarian village is just a short drive away! At the Icicle Straw Bale House you can have it all; recreate, be entertained, wine and dine or simply curl up in bed and enjoy a good book. Nothing could be better!

Where you’ll be

Leavenworth, Washington, United States

The house is in a great location! It is directly across the street from the Sleeping Lady Retreat Center. The dining amenities and grounds are open to the public. You can also take advantage of the resort spa and get massages during your stay!

The house is close to many hiking and biking trails, as well as river access along the enchanted Icicle and Wenatchee rivers. Icicle Creek runs along the road as you drive up Icicle Canyon. Stunning!

There is a guest house on the 1 acre property. The guest house is also a nightly vacation rental. There may or may not be guests staying at the guest house while you are there. You may see other people coming and going during your stay. The only thing that is shared is the driveway.

The houses don't share common recreation areas. They each have their own yards and decks. When hanging out on the balcony/decks, you aren't able to see the other guests.

A few days before your stay, we send you a list of all of our favorite and recommended restaurants, shops and fun things to do in and around town.

Icicle Guest House is where our family goes to stay when we leave our busy lives in Portland, Oregon. I remember the day we were taking our favorite drive up Icicle Canyon and saw the tiny wooden sign that said "for sale". We couldn't believe that we were going to build a house on this amazing piece of land! Stunning views, National Forest Land up the road and the Sleeping Lady Retreat Center right across the street! We loved living in Leavenworth and are so are happy to call it our home away from home!
