“Perfect Getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

My husband and I have returned here year after year during different seasons. Every time we have a wonderful experience. The setting is serene and lovely. The deck overlooks a meadow with mountains beyond. There are great trails just behind the lodge for hiking in warm months and snow shoeing in winter. One chilly night we sat in the hot tub and gazed at the star filled sky and an occasional meteor. All of the rooms and cabins are tastefully decorated and comfortable. There is great attention to detail in all parts of the lodge. The breakfast (included in the price) is generous, delicious, and different each morning. Most of all we appreciate the hospitality, integrity and warmth of the owners, Brad and Kathy, and their daughter Brecklyn. We always feel welcome and safe. There is no other place in Leavenworth we would rather stay.

We are so appreciative of our repeat guests and you taking the time to express your experience. Its neat to have you and your husband coming during the different seasons and see how much Mountain Home Lodge and its surroundings change through Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter. Guests often ask whats the best time to come? We respond by saying, “come when you can, we’ll do the rest.” Mountain Home Lodge is so fortunate to have its setting just 2 miles from Leavenworth, it really makes our job very easy to wake up to. Thank you and we look forward to you returning soon. Sincerely, Brad

Brad and Kathy have really perfected the most perfect get away. Our honeymoon started off at mountain home. Brad helped us bring our luggage up to the ponder rock, which has the most amazing view. We woke up each morning to the site of mountains and the sound of birds. They were most helpful with restaurant suggestions as well as helping us find the coffee mugs we were looking for. We could not have picked a better place to stay. The view, the seclusion, the piece and relaxation as well as the most hospitable hosts.
Thank you Brad and Kathy

It is so nice to hear from you that your honeymoon started off with the perfect hideaway secluded in our pristine meadow here in the Cascades. The serenity is wonderful to take a deep breath and truly relax after the craziness of planning a wedding just days before. Jon Muir coined it so well almost 100 years ago in his quote: Only spread a fern-frond over a man’s head, and worldly cares are cast out, and freedom and beauty and peace come in”. Your gracious compliments make us blush, as sharing the amazing mountain paradises we are so fortunate to own is our honor and welcoming it and sharing with our guests is an equal personal pleasure.
Congratulations on your new union and we send you are very best wishes for a lifetime of wonderful experiences and joy such as those her on the Mountain. ~ Kathy

My husband and I spent another 4 days at Mountain Home Lodge. We like to refer to it as our annual marriage retreat! It is by far the most beautiful, romantic, relaxing place we've been. From the time you settled in, until the time you leave, you feel right at "home". The food and service are always incredible. Owners Brad and Kathy Schmidt have said it best; "when you're at Mountain Home Lodge you are 1000 feet closer to heaven." We can't think of any better words to describe the experience!

Room Tip: The cabins are incredible! Spectacular views, cozy fireplace, comfy king size log bed, and a spa. Ne...

If you are planning a trip to Leavenworth and need a place to stay, look no further. We spent 3 nights during the first of June and it felt like we were there a week. We had a very relaxing time. Owners Kathy and Brad and their entire staff were very attentive, their chef makes the most fantastic food and you get to hang out with Millie their dog and their cats, Jack and Crackers. We love to hike and there are many trails behind the lodge that we enjoyed beautiful vistas. We are looking forward to going back again, probably in the winter time to snowshoe. Thank you again Kathy and Brad for your great hospitality!

So glad to hear our 4-legged staff, Millie, Cracker and Jack were all well behaved and providing you with a relaxing escape. It is amazing how being secluded up here on the mountain how far removed you feel. It is a magical secret of Nature that helps refresh your mind, body and spirit so you can return to your busy life with renewed energy and inner peacefulness. You will have a great time in the winter as the Cascade snows turns our resort into a true winter wonderland! See you then - - - Brad, Kathy and our faithful trail dog and lounge cats.

We spent 2 days enjoying our anniversary in May at Mountain Home Lodge. In the springtime this is one of the most stunning and beautiful places on earth. The hosts are wonderful and generous, the hiking trails are amazing, and the food and attention to guests are of the highest quality. If you come here once, you'll want to come back.

Thank you for your words of praise of Mountain Home Lodge. Spring is an outstanding canvas of color and new beginnings as the mountain come alive with returning songs of the many birds and the birth of many forest animals. We are pleased to hear that the tranquility of the resort was the perfect destination for this special anniversary celebration. We do hope to welcome you “home” to “the Mountain” on a return visit, perhaps trying on of the other 3 seasons... we do not think they will disappoint!

Enjoy the arrival of summer - -Kathy

Stayed here the weekend before Memorial Day for our wedding anniversary. The Mountain Home Lodge makes you feel at “home” from the very first time you walk into the lodge. Kathy Schmidt was an excellent host, even though she was dealing with her husbands “bike” problems. The executive Chef was very accommodating for my wife’s diabetes’s, making her a sugar free dessert for our dinner and breakfast on our last day of our visit. The room was very nice and comfortable. The lodge grounds have many walking trails and is very peaceful and relaxing. I highly recommend opting for the “dinner option” it was well worth the cost. 4+ Stars. Kathy and her staff are very nice and helpful with ideas for things to do in the Leavenworth and Wenatchee area. I would definitely stay her again. The drive up to the Lodge is a dirt road for at least 90% of the road once you leave Leavenworth. But is very well maintained.

It is always a pleasure for me to welcome our many visitors from all over the world to our intimate resort. Brad and I are fortunate to have found such a rewarding and fun “career” in a gorgeous four season location for recreation and relaxing. Chef Ron is a great asset to the resort with his delicious culinary surprises.

We appreciate you taking a moment to share your experience on the Mountain with us and with others. Enjoy a wonderful summer ahead and we look forward to seeing you again if your travels send you our way. Cheers, Kathy and the MHL crew. PS: Brad and his broken clavicle, punctured lung & broken ribs are healing well after his little mishap on his bike.

We spent three days at Mountain Home Lodge. It was so spectacular, it's somewhat impossible to use superlatives. The best setting for a lodge we have ever enjoyed. The food was amazing, our cabin was luxurious and well-appointed, and the trails up to the ridge and the lookout had views to die for. For our 35th anniversary, it was a splurge worth every penny!

Room Tip: Ponder Rock (Cabin 2) was amazing!

We are so happy to know your anniversary visit was as you had wished for. The cabins offer a perfect spot for a special visit and your 35 years of marriage certainly deserved such a holiday. Chef Ron enjoys making your dining experience on par with the beauty of our setting. We look for forward to meeting you again at our wonderful destination inn. Warm regards, Brad & Kathy
