What a surprise find! A group of us were looking for a weekend ski trip in January (a last guys weekend before one of us was lost to marriage), and started with looking at Crystal Mountain, Whistler, or Leavenworth. We ended up choosing Leavenworth because we could ski Stevens Pass on the way into town, Mission Ridge the next day, and Stevens Pass again on the way home to Seattle.
Next was choosing a place to stay. We looked at hotels, homes, and condo's in Leavenworth and decided to try the Aspen Suites. They looked new and had a great ski package that included tickets to either mountain. Their reservations line was also very helpful with giving us estimated times to the mountains and recomendations on where to eat, etc.
We checked in at the hotel desk and drove back our condo, located behind the Icicle Inn. What a surprise when we got into our rooms! The condo's are really very large, with separate outside doors into each section, which can be closed off inside. The living room / dining room is the first thing we saw, with great rustic pine furniture (one of us is a craftsman) and a great view out the huge windows! Around the corner was the best stocked kitchen we've ever seen, and we stay at condo's in Whistler allot, with everything needed to cook and serve dinner for the five of us. They even had a full size coffee pot and Seattles Best coffee ready for us to use!
The bedrooms had great mattresses and the rooms are very quiet so our sleep was great. There is a room with a queen size bed, a room with a king bed (it has a bath with a shower and jacuzzi tub) and we also used the sofa sleeper in the living room. It was even comfortable!
There was a large tv in each room, and a second bathroom off the main condo area. Then nicest thing is that it all feels brand new!
Overall the stay was incredible, we hit incredible snow at the mountains (albeit a bit windy!) and had a great stay in Leavenworth!
