About Sandy

We have lived in the Pacific Northwest our whole lives, with Ted being raised in Seattle and Sandy being raised in the Edmonds area. We started coming to Leavenworth when we first met 30 years ago and loved the area. We have always been drawn to the sunshine and diversity of activities. So, we purchased our property on the river and decided to build a B and B. We love sharing the beauty of this area with all of our guests and look forward to your arrival!

Sandy purchased this chalet in 2005

Why Sandy chose Central Cascade Mountains

It's so great to be close to downtown Leavenworth, but on the river relaxing in nature.

There are so many diverse recreational activities right in our 'back yard'. Winter sports include; cross country skiing, downhill skiing, snow boarding, tubing, snow shoeing, sleigh rides and snow snowmobiling. Summer, spring and fall sports and fun include; rafting or tubing the Wenatchee River, rock climbing right down Icicle Road from us, golfing, horseback riding, swimming, backpacking, hiking, biking and fishing.

What makes this chalet unique

Our goal is for you to have no schedules and privacy while you are here. Daily life can be so busy that you never get a chance to just unwind. That's why we have your breakfast already in your room so that you don't have to be anywhere at any special time.

Also, we are within walking distance to downtown Leavenworth and all the festivals, shops, restaurants and activities. We are one block to golfing and 1 mile to cross country skiing and horseback riding.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Quiet comfortable and well thought out details

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a restful weekend in the cute and comfy Chalet. Beautiful site near the river with Leavenworth style. Good communication and many nice details made this an easy and fun weekend. Would recommend this for couples looking for a quiet place near but not in town.

Spacious comfort rather high above river

  • 3 of 5

Hosts of this high bank property on the Wenatchee river beautifully maintain the property. King sized Bed was very comfortable. Breakfast consisted of supplies of muffins, juice, fruit, waffle batter In room.

Wished property had a protein option for breakfast, was more accessible to river, had a safe walking path to town, and parking less precariously located next to highway. Disappointed our unit did not have a direct river view (2 of the units do). In defense of this property, Leavenworth is an extremely crowded tourist town and has few locations meeting our wish list. Overall we felt the the river rafting was worth a few days of coping with crowds but we would chose another location in the mountains for a longer peaceful river vacation.

The Chalet was better than the photos!!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Leavenworth for a wedding. Little did we know we would have a wonderful little romantic getaway while staying in The Chalet at Haus Hanika.

The photos don't do this beautiful location justice. We had coffee on our deck looking at the river each morning and ended each evening with a glass of wine listening to the river.

The kitchen was stocked to perfection, the bathroom had an abundance of towels and the living space was darling! Every attention to detail was considered.

Our hosts, Sandy and Ted, we're welcoming and very friendly. Ted even loaned a belt to my husband because he forgot to pack one. That's what I call going above and beyond!!

We will definately return and suggest friends visit this awesome home away from home.

Perfect place for a perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This place is even better in person! Ted and Sandy are the nicest couple and are excellent hosts. Haus Hanika was a perfect option for our "babymoon" and the location can not be beat! It is right on the river with its own private swimming hole but close enough to town to experience all Leavenworth has to offer. The room looks recently updated and has everything you will need. The breakfast is amazing and even better, you can eat breakfast on your balcony while watching the Wenatchee River! We will definitely be returning here again!

Lovely anniversary stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed having a private breakfast provided, as we do not usually wake up early enough for breakfast service. It was lovely and perfect for our trip. We hope to return at some point soon!
