Adorable 1100 square foot cabin on the Wenatchee River in the popular Ponderosa Pines neighborhood.

This great recreation area has back roads and green trails to cross country ski or hike and also has a community pool (seasonal) and large playground area, all located just steps from River's Edge Cabin.

It is also just moments away from the gorgeous Plain valley as well as Lake Wenatchee, and Fish Lake parks and recreation areas. Endless activities, in every season, await you!

River's Edge is situated on the Wenatchee River, with steps down to the river bank and a riverside deck. Enjoy the view of the river in the winter, or get out and float it in the summer. A big deck allows plenty of room to dine outside, make a campfire, or just watch the stars between the towering evergreens.

Beautiful river view from every window

1 bedroom with queen bed

Large loft with King bed and two twin beds

Full bath with slate tile

About Cate Schultz Mighell

I live in the Seattle area and have enjoyed traveling to the beautiful Lake Wenatchee/Wenatchee River area for years.

I am a Life Coach and Author and also, for fun, an aviator adventurer! I love to hear your stories, from our communications and from your cabin journal entries. And, in return, I share one of my stories with you - a complimentary copy of my book, SILENT SKY.

This cabin has seen a lot of laughter, joy, and happiness. My three sons, now in their twenties, still consider this place their "Helmsdeep" - place of sanctuary.

I hope that you will love it as we have loved it. Enjoy your stay at River's Edge and please come back often and share it with your friends.

Fondly, Cate

Why Cate Schultz Mighell chose Leavenworth

We fell in love with this place immediately. Not too big and not too small. It is close enough to Leavenworth to always have options for shopping and dining and entertainment, but far enough away that we can enjoy the evening away from the tourist crowds.

Being right on the river is perfect for those hot summer days of chilling in the sun or river rafting or just hanging out with friends. We are also only a few steps away from the clubhouse, pool, and playground, with extensive kid equipment and even a basketball court, volleyball court, and baseball field! There is even a sledding hill when the snows hit big (which they do sometimes!) In the summer, you can raft from multiple spots upriver right to your doorstep!

We are only a half hour away from Stevens Pass, with great skiing, and summer activities as well. Big Lake Wenatchee is just down the road (waterskiing, swimming, beach bathing, camping, boating, etc) and Fish Lake is nearby as well (summer/ice fishing, ice skating, and boat rentals too). Nearby rivers, lakes, mountains, and woods supply endless opportunities for outdoor activities and, even within our neighborhood, numerous maintained greenbelt trails allow you to get into nature for a stroll whenever the urge strikes. The neighborhood roads themselves are quiet and safe, allowing biking, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, dog walking, etc.

In nearby Plain, the grocery store, hardware/gift store, restaurant, and wineries are all worth a visit.

This is a place where there is always something to do . . . or do nothing at all but soak in the peaceful serenity of River's Edge! We know you will love it here!

What makes this cabin unique

Virtually everyone who visits River's Edge falls in love with it and says you can really feel the "good energy" here. It is a happy place.

Loved the setting by the river. Saw deer and wild turkeys. Pleasant, well-equipped house. Enjoyed fire pit and walking trails. No live TV.

Excellent weekend at Rivers Edge!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just spent out 1st Wedding Anniversary at Rivers Edge Cabin and had a excellent time! The cabin is located on a very quiet street and has prime views of the water from everywhere inside the cabin. If you are looking for a quiet weekend get away, this is the place!

Fantastic quiet getaway location.

  • 5 of 5

I took my girlfriend to Rivers Edge for her BDay weekend along with my dog for a quiet getaway. It was perfect. The Cabin is nice and cozy, and has everything you will ever need. It's a beautiful location right on the rivers edge with huge trees all around, and plenty of space on the deck with a grill. Btw, the river is way too fast moving and deep for dogs to swim in.However there is a great location in the state park about 9 min down the road where a trail leads down to the lake that is perfect for them to swim, so it's really convenient. We spent most of our time out back relaxing to the sound of the river while enjoying the fire pit, and smores! I would definitely stay here again. 5/5 stars

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you and your girlfriend enjoyed your stay! There are so many activities nearby, in Leavenworth and in the great outdoors, yet so many people find they just want to unwind right here on the banks of River's Edge! Hope to see you here again soon.

Wonderful winter adventure!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time in the cabin. We really enjoyed the sound and view of the river; the cabin is in an incredible location.

The size was just right for our little family including grandma. Everything we needed to prepare our food was in the cabin (although we forgot some ingredients, but the little grocery store was a fairly short drive away).

The owner was very communicative through VRBO to ensure that we had everything we need and that our stay at the cabin was enjoyable.

We loved walking around the cabins, and the trail system in the community was wonderful. It was also a delight to get caught in a cozy cabin when over a foot of snow fell in one day; we were able to play in the yard, build a giant snow fort, and sled down the hills along the community's trail system.

I would very much recommend this place for someone who wants to get away.

A quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were two couples on a quiet getaway from Seattle. The house was perfect for the four of us! It was snowy outside, so the view was insanely gorgeous. The house has all the things you need to cook. Only thing we wished was stocked was paper towels. The rest was there including seasonings, many condiments, pans, dishes, everything!

The wood burning stove was a great boon on a cold night. The house was never cold but one night it got cold enough we didn't feel dumb using it. lol. Lovely.

Wonderful trip!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review. I am glad you enjoyed the winter beauty of River's Edge in the snow. Summertime provides a whole other kind of beauty, with a different smorgasbord of outdoor activities to enjoy. I am sorry you ran out of paper towels! I usually have a couple extra rolls in the cabinet above the washing machine. I do appreciate your visit and hope to see you back again in the summer, or the winter! All the best, Cate

The quaint Bavarian town of Leavenworth is only 15 minutes away by scenic Chumstick Canyon. Shopping, restaurants, entertainment, mini-golf, art shows, and much more can be found in Leavenworth. The city hosts a festival nearly every weekend, from Christmas Tree Lighting to Octoberfest to numerous other seasonal events. In the summer, live theater is held outdoors and quaintly dressed locals help visitors celebrate year-round. This town is well worth a visit!

After enjoying the busy-ness of tourist activities in Leavenworth, come back to your peaceful, quiet little piece of heaven on the river where you can relax away from the crowds.
