Featherwinds, Going Green

During the last few years there has been a heighted awareness regarding our environment. Featherwinds has been “going green” since the original Featherwinds Bed and Breakfast was built in 1991.

We have been planting trees and flowers that are indigenous to our area and require less water than some of the usual landscape items. We still grow and plant annuals and perennials to enhance the beauty of Featherwinds, but are very conscious of the type plants we grow.

Featherwinds also uses solar powered, fluorescent and low voltage lighting to light our walkways and parking areas. Using these types of lights helps reduce the amount of electricity we use and the lights last longer cutting down on the amount of waste. We have also started using LED decorative lighting for the same reasons; they use less electricity and last longer.

The swimming pool at our original Bed and Breakfast is solar heated. Because of the amount of propane or electricity required to heat our pool, we have been using solar panels for many years. Using the solar heated water requires no extra power use and heats the pool very efficiently during the mid to late summer months.

We have hot tubs at one of our B & Bs, our log cabin and at our two lodges (rental homes). For cleanliness we change the water in each hot tub after guests have completed their stay. But the water does not go to waste.  We don’t empty the hot tub water just anywhere. We “recycle” the water by using it to water the lawns at each build where the hot tubs are at. This saves a considerable amount of water usage in keeping our lawns green.

Featherwinds has been helping “feed” the environment for years! Our many apple and cherry trees at our B & Bs produce a lot of fruit that we happily share with the many species of birds and animals in our area. The deer, for one, are welcome to enjoy (and seem to often) apples from the our trees.

Warm wishes,

Featherwinds Lodging

Featherwinds Lodging is located in the Leavenworth Upper Valley also known as the Lake Wenatchee, Fish Lake Recreation Area. We are nestled in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains and just a short drive from the Bavarian Town of Leavenworth.

Featherwinds sits in the mist of one of Washington’s top ten winter wonderlands. A snowmobiling paradise! With an average snowfall of 36” in lower elevations and an average over 150” in higher elevations this is one of the best places in Washington for almost any winter sport.

At Featherwinds you can snowmobile from the front yard to many trails and ridges or trailer your machines to the near by snow park and explore over 50 miles of groomed trails. If you want to go higher, use Featherwinds as your base camp and trailer up towards Stevens Pass and enjoy over 100 miles of groomed trails. Go extreme and ride the ridges; Natapoc, Maverick Saddle, Sugar Loaf to Chumstick Lookout and beyond.

Remember, later in the winter Fish Lake is a great place to ice fish. Stay at Featherwinds, have a full hot breakfast, then venture 10 minutes away to Fish Lake for a day of ice fishing. After a day on the lake, return to your base camp at Featherwinds Lodging and enjoy a warm relaxing soak in a hot tub or if you are at the Guest Inn, relax in your private in-room spa tub.

Whatever you like to do in the snow, start your adventure at Featherwinds Lodging to relax and rejuvenate after your day of winter fun.

Hiking The Leavenworth Upper Valley

The Leavenworth Upper Valley is now getting fall weather; cold mornings, sometimes below freezing but daytime highs are still getting up around 65 degrees. There is still time to get in a few more hiking trips before the snow flies. The Leavenworth Upper Valley is home to some of the best hiking trails and scenery in the state of Washington.

With cool mornings and warm afternoons a day hike into the foothills of the Cascades would be spectacular. The scenery, birds and wild life, the great outdoors is at your finger tips. Most of the trails are still open and in great condition. The local Range Station is open on Friday and Saturday to get updated maps and information.

Reaching a ridge top and looking down at the valley is a sight to behold. With little to no clouds in the sky, you can see for miles and miles. The lush green valley floor, deep dark green trees speckled with red, orange and yellow fall colors, it’s a piece of heaven on earth.

If you’re not into hiking, try horseback riding. Local outfitters offer trail rides for groups of all sizes and experience levels. Scenic riding trails are available so be sure to bring your camera! You may get that perfect picture of an eagle or hawk flying overhead, deer or elk grazing, coyote or fox off in the distance, a moose wandering the hillside, or maybe even a bobcat or lynx strolling by, not aware of your presences.

The opportunities are endless in the Upper Valley. Relax and enjoy the world around you. Nature at it’s finest.

Featherwinds Lodging is centrally located in the Leavenworth Upper Valley with quick easy access to most activities.
