My husband and I stayed 2 nights here in December. It was our first time visiting Leavenworth and we had a wonderful time! Icicle Wildernest was just as advertised; cozy and quaint! The room was much nicer than a hotel and costs less. We liked that fact that the room had it's own entrance. It was very private. There was also a welcome packet on the table including maps, restaurant menus, etc. Very helpful! I also didn't mind the fact that it was outside of town. The drive only takes a few minutes and it was a gorgeous drive. We are already wanting to come back!
We stayed at the Icicle WiderNest rental because Leavenworth is beautiful this time of year with all the lights and snow with the mountains as a background. However, this does come at a cost the little town is a madhouse and simple small hotel rooms filled with loud people at all hours can coast upwards of 200 dollars. Well, here just about 4 or 5 miles off the beat and path is a cozy quiet retreat at half the price and there are nice little personal touches too. The weekend we were there we got dumped on with over a foot and half of snow and they were always out clearing the path and deck of snow and also dugout around our car so we could get out and on to the road.
My husband and I rented the unit for Octoberfest weekend. The bedroom is artfully decorated and clean. I like that we have our own private entrance. The shrubs and trees around the property makes it feel like you're in the enchanted woods. There are trails that go up the hill and we explored that a little. It's just so serene and beautiful especially in autumn. Leavenworth is a charming town. We had a great time wine, cheese and chocolate tasting. The property is a little bit of a drive to town but if you have your own vehicle, it's not a problem. The drive actually is very lovely with the mountains, trees and river to gaze at. It was indeed a relaxing stay and would definitely be back for next year's Octoberfest.
This was a perfect getaway spot for a couple. Very warm and inviting, and we had complete privacy. The hot tub was heaven! I'd gladly stay again.
This place was absolutely wonderful! My boyfriend and I came here for our one year anniversary. It was exactly what we were looking for. The place is super clean cozy and relaxing. We would definitely love to come back here again for another great getaway weekend!!
