Based on previous reviews we chose a two day stay at the Mountain Home Lodge. We were not disappointed by the setting or the fine attentive service. The staff was courteous and helpful with trail maps for hiking as well as suggestions of nearby attractions. We ate dinner which was a gourmet delight of local vegetables as a 4 course meal and complete breakfasts rather than the usual yogurt and muffins. One breakfast was a frittata and the next day apple french toast accompanied by homemade granola and fresh fruit.
The room was small but well appointed. They provided access to a large supply of videos in a movie room accompanied by popcorn.
The setting is quiet and peaceful with a friendly dog to welcome us.
We felt pampered and welcomed by our hosts.

Room Tip: There are mountain views as well as individual cabins.

Glad you had a great trip to Mountain Home Lodge. Summer hiking trails are easily accessible right from the Lodge. We will pass along to Chef Ron your praises for his cuisine. We look forward to perhaps welcoming you to the Lodge in the future when the need for a tranquil retreat arises. Best Regards Brad & Kathy

My wife and I just returned from a two night getaway and both of us agree it is the best we have ever had. What made it so wonderful was the experience at Mountain Home Lodge. The property is absolutely beautiful and the staff could not have been any more helpful. From the moment we arrived until we headed down the mountain for the last time they were wonderful. Whether it was advice for a hike or a meal in town, Brad and gang were there to help us. The cabin that we stayed in was spectacular. The view out the front window was unbeatable and inside they had thought of everything down to a cool beverage waiting for us in the fridge.

The complimentary breakfasts were great. The chef does a wonderful job of having a nice variety of tasty things waiting for you in the morning. The dinner was also spot on and we would highly recommend it to any and all.

It is not a matter of whether we will come back it is when. Will it be Summer time again to enjoy the hiking and summer activities or Winter to experience the snow shoeing, cross country skiing and sledding.

Room Tip: We thoroughly enjoyed Ponder Cabin. It is a short walk from the main Lodge, but has everything you...

Thank for you for taking the time to write such an informative review. With just 12 accommodations it does allow our staff to have a "concierge" approach to helping our guests with the activities and amenities here at Mountain Home Lodge and our surrounding area. Thank you too for providing a room tip, guests appreciate that level of detail. It won't be long and we'll begin prepping for the busy winter season, the long range forecast looks good with an above average snow season expected. We hope to see you soon, all the best. Sincerely, Brad

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
