Wine Tasting in Leavenworth

Truth is you can easily keep yourself busy in our little town of Plain. After a local hike, bike ride or horseback riding, I recommend a wine tasting at Plain Cellars.

A charming tasting room and plenty of outdoor seating around the back.


 You'll find A Taste of Plain Food Truck serving up deliciousness on Saturdays and Sundays. 


 Tell them we sent you!

Come stay with us, perfect for exploring the parks, trails, wineries and craft breweries around Lake Wenatchee, Plain and Leavenworth. 

 A lovely stroll through town before dinner.

Leavenworth Winter Vacation Rental

It's a magical time of the year in the Cascades. Heres a few shots of Poofy's at Christmas time. Happy Holidays from all of us. We wish you good health and happiness in 2022.

The sauna and covered patio for year round coziness.


The rest of the house is hidden behind the tree, but I loved seeing the sunshine today!


Holiday vignettes...


My daily walk to the river.



 Over my shoulder bed selfie, didn't even have to leave the flannel sheets for this shot.


Hope you'll be our guests in 2022!

My favorite time of the year, Fall in the cascades. Did a quick check in at Poofys on my way to the BC Okanagan to visit with dear friends before the wineries close for the season!

Leavenworth getting ready for the Oktoberfest weekends.


Fall colors on the Chiwawa loop road were incredble! 


It was lovely to sit under the patio and listen to the rain fall.
 

 Highway 2, I had to pull over to take a quick shot.

Where to eat on Hwy 2, Leavenworth

I had to make a quick day trip, supply run to Poofys. Dinner at the 59er Diner before heading back over the pass was picture perfect and delicious!



Right at Coles Corner, the 59er Diner is your first stop as you come over Stevens Pass. I recommend the pulled pork!


My brother is a big Elvis fan, so i had to take a quick shot for him.


Butts only!

If you can't finish your fries, there is always a sweet Rhode Island Red more than happy to help out.

Vacation Rentals Leavenworth

Summer arrived with a bang this year! We hope you enjoy your time exploring our slice of heaven in the PNW. Usually this time of year we hit the river for a leisurely afternoon float. NOT this year! With the hot temperatures and record breaking snow pack the river is still running high and fast.  Lake Wenatchee is a great alternative or if you're headed into town, Enchantment Park in Leavenworth will cool you down.


Everything is about a month behind schedule this year. I was thrilled to see all my wild flowers in bloom.


The yard is wild at Poofy's...even the smallest of blooms are appreciated!


Nothing beats a good night sleep and waking up to the sound of the birds....


...morning coffee on the upper patio....


I promise there will be something for everyone to read!



Leavenworth in full bloom. Have a fabulous stay.
