“Tasty home cooked dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

We chose this restaurant based on the TripAdvisor reviews and were not disappointed. Pay attention to the driving directions on the website, turn right just after the bridge leaving Leavenworth heading east and immediately turn left uphill on Mountain Home Road. The two miles seem to take forever but there are several signs indicating that you are on the right track!

The appetizers and complementary wine before dinner was a nice touch and the owners along with their sixteen year old daughter mingled and served us. The feeling was that of being invited to someones home for dinner rather than a restaurant.

The fixed menu was tasty and nicely presented, again cooked and presented in the home cooked style not fussy gourmet. The view is spectacular and far removed from the touristy bustle of downtown Leavenworth.

In summary, The Mountain Home Restaurant is ideal for a romantic meal in a home setting in a beautiful mountain location fifteen minutes drive from downtown Leavenworth

We are glad to read your evening dining experience at the resort while visiting our area was well received. With seating to only 9 private tables we hope to provide guests with a relaxing, intimate and satisfying meal using the freshest ingredients available to highlight the bounties of the Pacific Northwest. We are pleased we met your expectations and look forward to your return visit if you travel to our area from Canada again.

“Best lodging in all of Leavenworth”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

While in town for work we decieded to visit the lodge . Wow the rooms are cozy and very very clean . The relaxing setting looking into the mountains made us want to come back in the winter to enjoy the snow capped mountains . The food service and quality cant be beat . The lovely pool and hot tub took all the stress right out of us . We enjoyd just sitting in the lodge livingroom playing cards and other games . The peace and quiet made reading on the couch relaxing . The owners of the lodge went out of their way to make our experience a great one. Im hoping to return this winter for snow shoeing , cross country skiing and a guided sled tour . They bring you into the lodge with a snowcat in the winter which sounds like fun . Yes I will be back

Thank you for the high praises of Mountain Home Lodge from your visit earlier this month. We are always pleased to know your experience was what we strive to provide... serenity and renewal of mind, body and spirit away from the busy lifestyles many lead. Chef Ron works diligently to provide a delicious meal be it nightly prix fixed 4 course dinner available by advance reservation during the non-snow months or the complete daily meals offered to our overnight guests. Winter is a great experience as you allude to. We can’t wait to see you racing down our 1,700’ sledding hill in our inner-tubes with hard shells for speed and agility! The fun never stops!

“Spectacular View and Dinner to Match!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

We were visiting friends in Leavenworth so we didn’t stay at the lodge but did attend dinner. It was a little hard to believe it could be as wonderful as our friends had built it up to be but... I now stand appropriately admonished!
We arrived just before 6:30 and were greeted by many (all?) of the household pets who were all well-mannered. We sipped wine on the deck while soaking up the stunning mountain landscape before being called to dinner.
The four course prix-fixe dinner was one of the finest I’ve ever had. Everything… EVERYTHING was absolutely wonderful! I could not give a higher recommendation.
Make your reservations well in advance as the number of tables is set and by all means, arrive with a titillated palate!

We are so glad to read your skepticism about a special dining experience recommended from your friends has been put to rest and your evening on the Mountain was wonderful as they had said. The magnificent view of the Cascades accentuated by the rolling meadow in front of the Lodge is unmatched in our opinion. We will share with Chef Ron your gracious praises of his culinary creations. All the sun-ripened seasonal vegetables and fruits being harvested from local growers this time of the year provides us with a wide palette of selections to create our menus. We are appreciative of your review and look forward to welcoming you for another visit. PS: Not quite ALL of the pets greeted you I hope... Blue the Horse would have been a sight on the front deck!

“Disappointment”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

The food was average at best with the wait staff hovering; if your fork is down, your plate is gone...very rushed, felt like they couldn't get you out fast enough. Long drive up the mountain, lovely setting, lovely view, disappointingly average overpriced meal. Will not go back, will not recommend. Get a chef and get a manager that knows the restaurant business.

“Great Food and Beautiful Setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2012

My wife and I visited the restaurant for dinner while spending a weekend in Leavneworth. The intimacy of the dining room, the park-like setting of the lodge and the panoramic views from each table all combined to make a very enjoyable setting. Each of the four courses were well presented and their great, local flavours complimented each other. The desert was truly heavenly. Our hosts were very warm and attentive. Our dining experience was truly, "a 1000 feet closer to heaven!"

So happy to read that you enjoyed your special evening with us on the “Mountain”. We have to agree that dining in an intimate, private setting up in the majestic Cascades above the village is a unique and delightful experience. With advance reservation we only seat to 9 private tables for our prix-fixed dining so Chef Ron can present an exceptional meal utilizing the local culinary treasures. We look forward to welcoming you and your wife back to MHL on a return visit to our area. Warmly, Brad & Kathy
