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 Washington.
Featherwinds sits in the mist of one of Washington’s top ten winter wonderlands. A winter sports paradise! With an average snowfall of three feet in lower elevations and an average of over 150” in the higher elevations, this is one of the top places in Washington for any winter sport.
From our lodges 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 fifty miles of groomed trails. If you want to 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 Look Out and beyond!
Remember late in winter, Fish Lake is a great place to ice fish. Stay at Featherwinds, have a full hot breakfast then venture ten minutes away to Fish Lake for a day of ice fishing. After a day on the lake, return to your base camp at Featherwinds and enjoy a warm relaxing soak in a hot tub or if you’re in our Guest Inn, relax in your private in room jetted spa tub.
Spring, summer and fall bring ideal conditions for most outdoor fun that doesn’t require snow. Fishing, hunting, hiking and birding are just a few activities in the Leavenworth Upper Valley. If you love to fish try your skill trolling on Lake Wenatchee; at Fish Lake fly fish or “troll” from a dock; fish the Wenatchee River or try your luck at one of the high mountain lakes.
Hike in, fish and bird watch at some of the best lakes in the state. Don’t forget your camera, the scenery is un-believable!
Leavenworth and the Upper Valley provides year round opportunities for birding. Well kept trails and view points make birding relaxing and enjoyable. While birding, be sure to take the time to gaze at the natural beauty the area has to offer.
Snowmobile trails, horseback riding and hiking trails, dirt biking trails and snowshoe, cross country trails and courses make the Upper Valley a popular spot for most any outdoor enthusiast.
