About Sandy

Ted and Sandy have vacationed in Leavenworth since we first met 30 years ago. It's was always our favorite getaway for the wonderful sun we have here. Living in Western Washington for our whole lives we began coming to Leavenworth more and more every year for the sunny weather, and all the fun activities and festivals year round. Finally, in 2000, we bought our property here on the Wenatchee River and used it as our getaway until 2005 when we began building Haus Hanika. Finished in 2007, we moved here full time and decided to share our wonderful spot on the River as a Bed and Breakfast so that others could enjoy this beautiful area as well. We know you'll love it here as we do!

Sandy purchased this chalet in 2007

Why Sandy chose Central Cascade Mountains

We chose Haus Hanika location because it is so close to town, but gives you the feeling of being in nature. The River and all the wildlife is so relaxing but you are so close to Downtown Leavenworth (just one mile).

What makes this chalet unique

Our goal is for you to have complete privacy and to feel like you've really had a break from it all. We are available for anything you want or need, but leave you alone for your 'down time'. That's why we provide your breakfast in your suite already when you arrive so that you can wake up and just relax in the morning!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have stayed in Leavenworth several times, and your place tops any other we've been at. Loved the room and the view!

Peaceful, comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay here. It was comfortable, beautifully decorated, and perfectly clean. The riverside view was a treat. We enjoyed the delicious included brunch out on the patio. Thank you Sandy and Ted!

River Magic!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved our 2-night stay at this wonderful little place. It was homey and oh so comfortable. The Belgian waffles were a special treat! And now back home in the miserable heat and humidity in Houston, we are relying on our memories of sitting in those great chairs at the rivers edge! I highly recommend Haus Hanika for your Leavenworth stay.

Thanks for the memories Sandy!

A Mary Poppins Visit

  • 5 of 5

The magical nanny described herself as practically perfect in every way. That description fits Haus Hanika to a "T." Cozy, quiet rooms. Absolutely lovely décor. Delicious breakfast food in the room. The most comfortable mattress ever. Killer location overlooking the Wenatchee river. Heck, they even provided wildlife: deer, herons, and eagles! The only thing Ted and Sandy failed to deliver was sunshine and blue skies. Oh, wait. It only rained two out of three days. :-) All in all, BEST B&B STAY EVER! We'll definitely be back!

Great view of the river with friendly, prompt service. The in-room waffle making supplies were a great touch! River access was great and managed to see 2 deer run past early in the morning. Will definitely stay here again when in Leavenworth!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your amazing review! August is such a beautiful time of year here with all of the flowers. Now it's December and the snow it's a fallin' hope you can make it back soon to see the Christmas Lights and the Magical town. The river is so amazing it's starting to freeze! Thanks again, Ted and Sandy

Relaxation Supreme!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to relax! We're traveling across country and have been hiking and biking everyday. Haus Hanika was a great place to just relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery. This B&B sits literally on the edge of a beautiful river. We sat all day long beside the river and watched the tubers and kayakers float the river. We stayed just two nights but we were wishing we'd booked it for more. The Black Bear Suite has everything a person would need: very comfortable bed, jetted tub, and a wonderful breakfast which you prepare yourself whenever you're ready to do so. Eating our Bavarian waffles on our private porch... oh my goodness, wonderful food and beautiful scenery ... a combination we won't soon forget. Oh, and by the way, the town of Leavenworth is fabulous -- everything is decorated in a Bavarian style -- very quaint and enjoyable.

We will definitely stay here again!

Haus Hanika in Leavenworth

  • 5 of 5

There is no need to look for another rental. Haus Hanika B&B is a wonderful place to stay. From the time you arrive until you depart Ted and Sandy have your comfort in mind. The peaceful patio with the Wenatchee river just yards away is the best. You're only 3 minutes from downtown Leavenworth. What is not to like about this property. Two thumbs up.
