About Michelle Petelle
I grew up in Seattle with a love of the Cascades and all the activities the mountains and rivers allow. Our family really loves this property. Owning a home in Plain/Leavenworth area on the river surrounded by mountains has been a dream of mine. Now that I have met the people in the community I realize this is where I want to retire. This vacation home has brought our kids and grand children together with adventures by day and family laughter around the table at night. Sharing this space with others has been a wonderful experience. We hope your friends and family will enjoy the same love and relationships we have here.
Michelle Petelle purchased this House in 2015
Why Michelle Petelle chose Leavenworth
I have traveled to this area my entire life. My father used to take us camping at Fish Lake long before the The Cove Resort was established just down the road a few minutes from the house. He taught us kids how to fish there then he taught my son how to fish on Fish lake years later. Our family vacations have always been in the Cascades most likely due to my parents financial resources. That is where I learned to love the mountains, lakes and rivers here in the Northwest. When my husband and I found this property I was excited because I already loved this area. My husband was not sold on it, being from California he was not sure about all the snow in the winter. He was quickly sold on the idea when he saw the off road vehicles headed down our street to the trails a few blocks away. He loved riding off road and now he would not need to trailer his bikes to a recreational area to have fun. This is only one of the reasons this neighborhood is called recreational paradise. We have discovered many other fun activities in the last few years such as snowmobiling, hiking, boating, river floating or rafting depending on your adventure level, etc.

Overall great house. Listing says 5 bedrooms. Really it’s 3 bedroom (master on main was locked) and utility room with a twin bed. Luckily all our guests didn’t make it.
Great Outdoor Deck
Great home for a large number of people. The spacious covered outdoor deck was great. Home is set up for entertaining. Just a short walk away to a small private community beach on the river. Kids enjoyed getting wet and cooling off. Only downside was that the hot tub was not functioning properly, so we were unable to use it. Owner did try to get it serviced before we left, but due to weekend was unable to. Also, there were many leftover items in refrigerator, especially in door shelves (I assume from previous guest), so we were limited on fridge space. Anyone who has not been to the reindeer farm in Leavenworth should check it out, especially if you have young kids. It was a hands on experience with reindeer, horses, chickens and even a turkey.
Great getaway with friends
A beautiful property. So relaxing.
Comfortable home in the mountains
We had a great time staying at Michelle’s property. The house was well furnished and supplied, clean, and check in was easy. The hot tub was a delight to use, and the large deck off the kitchen was great. We played games on the large lawn, and there was parking for all four of our cars. We found the propane tank in the BBQ empty. And the river is at least a 10 minute walk away. But overall we had a great time!
The house was perfect! A beautiful home in a beautiful setting!
The process was easy and Michelle was very easy to contact.
I am glad you enjoyed your stay. We hope you come stay with us again soon. The October feast is coming up and a few other events in town through the end of the year.
Thank you again
Had an amazing trip, the house was so beautiful!
Thank you. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. My favorite time of day is 1st thing in the morning with a cup of coffee on the deck looking at the river and the mountains. It’s gorgeous.
