Where you’ll be

Leavenworth, Washington, United States

Our compound is in a development called Ponderosa Estates, with 585 lots and nearly 400 cabins among 243 acres of greenbelts. There are 13 trails that are used in every season for show shoeing, hiking or walking the dog. Interestingly, Ponderosa Estates was a short-lived equestrian development, thus the extensive trail system and fun names like Saddle, Pinto, Colt and Lariat. Today it is a welcoming, unpretentious development showcasing an eclectic mix of cabins, chalets and homes of all kinds. Everyone seems nicer here.

Enjoy golf at nearby Kahler Glen, float the Wenatchee River (and get out in our backyard!), visit the Bavarian town of Leavenworth 20 minutes to the south or simply enjoy the warm weather and huge ponderosa pines. Plain Cellars is an award-winning winery in town and the Mountain Springs Lodge with their zipline or sleigh rides is 3 miles away. Plain Hardware, the coolest hardware store we've ever seen, rents XC and snow shoes for the trails they maintain across the street. They have a nice coffee bar and soups, plus all kinds of unique gifts and clothing.

Forbes Magazine recently named Leavenworth as one of their "14 coolest towns for your vacation" and said nearby Plain is a “secret treasure.” Come and disconnect, laugh with friends, get your heart pumping on some multisport adventures and enjoy some good local wine or a favorite brew from Icicle Brewing Company. We’ll send a complete list of restaurants and activities to consider!
