I imagine I would have given this lodge additional stars if I had visited in the winter. The snow would have added a magical touch. The changing leaves were beautiful, but it felt like something was missing. Perhaps some of the lodge's energy. There are a dozen winter activities to do there, and I hope to someday return and experience a few. The night we stayed at the lodge there was no dinner service, which was disappointing. What made up for it, though, was the fantastic breakfast included in the rate. The innkeepers provide an excellent homemade breakfast of yogurt, homemade granola, excellent eggs, a homemade apple streudal, bagels, vegetables, fruit, etc. On another note, if you like B&Bs this is a great place for you. I happened to overlook that detail and found myself feeling strange unpacking in a room that felt like little Mickey's old bedroom. Not that the decor was suggestive of a child's bedroom, but the close quarters to the other bedrooms and the library-quiet feeling of the lodge made it feel a bit inauthentic for me. I like staying at a place I can really unwind and relax, not where I feel I must be in bed by 10pm and tip toe around. When I return I'll likely try to reserve the private cabin, to gain the privacy I felt was missing.

I cannot say enough good things about the Mountain Home Lodge. After endless hours of searching through hotels and bed and breakfasts I almost gave up and was going to plan a trip elsewhere. That was until I found the Mountain Home Lodge website. The other hotels in and around Leavenworth are quite Bavarian as expected but also extremely tacky and just plain dirty looking. The Mountain Home Lodge is anything but with beautiful landscapes, a cozy room and quiet spaces. What I love the most about this place aside from the space and location is the fact that they do NOT allow kids under the age of 16 unless they rent the entire space. This allows the rest of us to enjoy all that the lodge has to offer in a peaceful state. We celebrated our ten year anniversary here and could not have had a better time. The dinner was exquisite, the gourmet breakfasts were to die for (pumpkin pancakes!? AWESOME) and the staff was very kind and accommodating. They have miles and miles of hiking trails that we took full advantage of and their trail dog Millie enjoyed every mile with us. We didn't even need to invite her, she saw us walking and came right along! It made me feel right at home. I highly recommend this lodge for anyone who loves peace and quiet in a beautiful space surrounded by gorgeous landscape. Absolutely breathtaking.

Loved this place so much, I got married there.

It was a destination wedding--my entire family lives out of state--and everyone complained about the 2.5 hour drive from Seattle to Leavenworth.  But once they got there, people couldn't shut up about how gorgeous this place is--and how wonderful the service is--and how they didn't want to leave!  Kathy and Brad are amazing at wedding planning--they don't miss a single detail.  I grew up in a huge metropolitan city--so I have big city standards for things being updated, modern, and over-the-top service oriented, and Mountain Home Lodge did not disappoint.  A couple of our guests loved this place so much they decided to stay a couple of extra days.  I'm allergic to wheat and they even made me a wheat-free cake for my wedding--unheard of!   And you have to try their granola.  It's amazing.  Can't say enough good things about this place.  My only word of caution: I wasn't super pleased with any of the vendors I used on their list for my florist, DJ, etc., but there aren't a ton of options to choose from out there--so you might need to do a little more digging or get creative.  And don't forget that if you're not getting married in the summer, you'll need to string extra lights at night across the lower grass area.  And, they only have a liquor license for beer and wine.  Great place to visit or vacation for a relaxing, gorgeous weekend.  Plus, there's port wine in every room for guests to partake of!

1000 feet above Leavenworth, Washington is where you will find Mt Home Lodge.  We have vacationed there on a semi-regular basis since 1997.  The lodge has only 11 rooms.  New additions were two cabins which are wonderful.  The views are marvelous, but it is Brad and Kathy Schmidt (the innkeepers) who make MHL what it is today.  The greatest place for a couple to get away to and still free like they are in the warm embrace of "home".

You can check out there web site to see all the activities and scenery.

However, that's not all.  Chef Tom brings another refinement to this mountain oasis... FOOD glorious FOOD!  As a dinner restaurant, MHL is a  five star establishment.  On occasion, usually in the non-winter seasons, lodge guests will sometimes foolishly venture into Leavenworth for dinner rather than stay for Tom's delicacies.   This frees up a table or two for "outsiders" to make the rough road drive up to the lodge and partake of the evening's fare.  You must call ahead to assure a table and remember this might be a rare treat.

There is no possible way that I could do justice to the meals Chef Tom prepares.  

Take a look at their "dining" page and download the sample menu.

Over the 11 year period, that we have stayed at Mountain Home Lodge we only once missed dinner.  We are fast learners.

Bottom line is great place to stay and an excellent place to dine.
We have never, ever been disappointed in either.

The folks at MHL were outstanding.  Brad, his daughter Breklyn were the most friendliest hosts one could ask.  Their attention to details and kindness are the reasons we are already planning our next trip to MHL.  Chef Ron's food was outstanding.  We stayed for three days and did not experience anything but first class meals.  Highly, highly recommend!

YOU MUST TRY THE ZIPLINE COURSE!

My friends and I had a delightful morning as the most charming guides led us through their new Zipline course. We felt safe, had fun, and met some great people as we sailed through trees, water, and mountaints.

I had NO idea what to expect. Honestly, I thought we would ride one line and then go home. Oh, no! There are 7 or 8 different lines, each a different length and different angle and all thrilling.

It is worth every dime, takes about 4 hours, and is limited to parties of 8. Get your friends together and go.

Mountain Home Lodge has always been a great Leavenworth destination. It is nice to see this added attraction. It will no doubt become extremely popular.

How are there only 7 reviews!? Fail people, epic fail. Ok so I spent 15 years employed in luxury level hospitality. I've done it all, and seen it all. I complain about SOMETHING (under my breath) no matter where I stay, because I'm a snob. I can't help it, it's what happens when you work in the industry. I see everything...you see only maybe half of what I see. Don't be offended, it's just the truth. But I digress...

My wife and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary at the Mountain Home Lodge. We picked it for it's location, and serenity. It's close to home, which makes an easy trip. I couldn't find one thing I didn't love LOVE about this place. The food is delightful. The owners/service of this place is bar none. I've had my own personal butler at the St Regis in NY and this lodge still blows that place away. Because here, it's genuine. I'll pay for that all day long.

Beautiful hiking trails, with a sweet dog that will gladly accompany you (off leash, she just leads you, it's adorable). You're close to Leavenworth and yet you feel very secluded.

Two main things that impressed me greatly: 1) my wife has a severe nut allergy, which was noted before arrival. Every. Single. Person on staff knew about it, knew her by name and the Chef made sheets of the granola just for her. Unreal. 2) the idea of being in a B&B as the only gay couple isn't always an easy task. People can be weird, especially when you're in a quiet/remote setting. The staff here made us feel right at home, introduced us around and broke all ice.

It wasn't our plan to do it this way, but we've decided to spend every other anniversary at MHL just because we couldn't believe for the price we paid...what we got. Truly special place, and if you are still reading this stop already, and book your stay!

This place was beyond amazing. Not only are the views iconic and breath taking, but the staff brings the experience to a whole new level. We stayed at mountain home in the winter for New Years and were welcomed with a cracklings fire place, warm drinks and an ever welcoming host and hostess. The experience in the winter is all inclusive, so not only is food included but so are the winter activities and equipment as well as games, movies and music. This place can't be beat as far as winter wonderland retreat in Washington

Relaxation in the mountains!

My husband and I recently stayed here over NYE and it was such a wonderful stay. Our agenda = to simply relax. And that's exactly what we did.

OVERALL:
The owners are so, so, SO friendly and accommodating. Anything you wanted, they'd oblige. It was so nice to go somewhere and not have to worry about anything. During the winter, when Leavenworth is usually blanketed in soft, flurried feet of snow, the MHL offers an all-inclusive rate. Meaning, your breakfast, lunch, happy hour, dinner, dessert, and even snacks (popcorn and root beer floats, anyone?) are included in your nightly room rate. And most activities (snowmobiling excluded) are included as well. Unfortunately, for us, there has been very little snow up here, but that did not damper our mini-retreat to the mountains (or the sledding)! Brad will even drive you into the village for a day-trip if you like.

FOOD:
The food is so delicious! And that's coming from one obscenely picky eater. But everything was noms.

When I was making the booking, Brad had asked if I had any food allergies and I told him I didn't really an allergy (although I am partially lactose-intolerant), but rather (and don't hate me here) I'm not crazy for cheese. Mostly, I cannot handle the stronger cheeses; white cheese is my friend. I had totally forgotten he asked this and when we arrived and sitting down for our first dinner, I was reviewing their daily printed menu and noticed there was going to be bleu cheese in the salad. I figured I'd just have to take the pieces out (like I usually have to do), but when the salad came, Breklyn served me a delightful plate of salad sans those strong cheesy crumbles. Ahhh, they take care of EVERYTHING.

It only got better from then on; even during lunch, the chef would bring out a separate sandwich he made for me with no cheese. How awesome is that? Amazing customer service here. AMAZING. I did note that they also took care of anyone who had real food issues (like gluten-free or vegetarian). Very nice.

ROOM:
We booked the Cascade Suite as it was the only one available during the times we wanted to stay. It was such a nice room; the bathroom was equipped with a two-seater jacuzzi, it had a large gas fireplace (keeping us toasty), and it had breathtaking views of the Cascade Mountains, which were perfectly enjoyed from even the bed.

BOTTOM LINE:
If you're seeking a place to just unplug and unwind, I highly recommend the MHL.

A thousand feet closer to heaven indeed. The charming Bed and breakfast hold a very dear place in my heart as it reminded me so much of my childhood and growing up in the woods.  It's feel like HOME!!!
Fresh bake breakfast,  watching the blue jay outside the window while opera is playing or an early evening happy hour and h'deourves watching the sunset behind the mountain range.
Brad, Kathy and their daughter(who has the same birthday as my husband) are the nicest and genuine inn keepers you would ever meet.
I love the secret garden in the back and a nice stroll in the woods right on the property.   Brad and Kathy also made wonderful recommendation for us during our stay.
A well kept, well run establishment indeed.  We had such wonderful memories and would want to come back again sooner than later.

I can not say enough amazing things about this place! The owners, Brad and Kathy give such amazing, personalized service, you feel immediately right at home. Chef Ron, who does all the meals, is superbly talented, and if you have any dietary concerns, he creates a cuisine to fit your needs. My husband and I are both vegan, and he made some amazing vegan meals for us. The beautiful setting is completely breathtaking. We stayed in a cabin, be woke up every morning to gorgeous mountain views. It is outside of Leavenworth, but really, everything you could possibly want is at the lodge anyways!
