According to Better Homes & Gardens, Leavenworth, Washington — also home to Icicle Island — ranks among the 9 towns you need to visit if you love Christmas. So this week, we went searching the town for a perfect wintertime retreat. What we found was a cozy Icicle Island cabin that is sure to get you in the holiday spirit. Yes, that’s right, Icicle Island! It’s a small housing community nestled on Icicle Creek and is a real life winter wonderland.
A Cozy Icicle Island Cabin
First, this one-bedroom, one-bathroom cabin is located on a forested riverfront lot in quintessential Icicle Island. The listing sets the scene saying, “Soak in the sights and sounds of the magical icicle from this lovingly maintained chalet set literally a stone’s throws from an insanely special bend on this iconic river.”
Minutes From Leavenworth’s Nostalgic Christmas Cheer
We love the idea of a classic mountain escape! And this one is secluded and private, yet minutes from Leavenworth’s nostalgic Christmas cheer. Here you can enjoy the magic of the holidays surrounded by towering pine trees and an abundance of snow. Plus, the cabin is wrapped with a lovely deck for decorating. Outside it’s decked with twinkle lights, while the inside is warm and inviting with a fireplace and perfect spot for your tree.
Hiking, Skiing, And Snowshoeing Await!
The listing entices us further adding, “Imagine snowy winter nights cozied around the rustic rock fireplace; intimate dinners gathered in the inviting kitchen and dining space.” The cabin is also a prime place to hike, bike, rock climb, ski, and snowshoe. Simply pack a bag and set out for a day of adventure. Then return to the cabin for evening of relaxation in this one-of-a-kind Leavenworth offering.
It comes complete with a charming kitchen and plenty of windows to watch the snow fall. There is a convenient main level bedroom and bath, but also a bonus loft that is great for overnight guests. Like the listing reads, “Take a step back in time. The quintessential rustic riverfront retreat awaits!”
