We were lucky enough to be able to book the Kumitskoos cabin for 3 nights and it was BLISS. ABsolutely perfect. We got 20” of snow our first night and my kids called it the enchanted forest! There were 3 couples and my two kiddos, age 6 and 4- and it was the perfect size for us all and lended personal space for all of us as well. It was serene and beautiful and had a wonderful time relaxing in the cabin together, playing games, cooking in the beautiful well-stocked kitchen, enjoyed the hot tub and even sled down our own personal sled hill outside! I cannot say enough wonderful things! The cabin itself was so impressive. Well stocked, clean, and even after all the snow they were out first thing in the morning to plow our drive. It’s also quite an easy 20 minute drive in to Leavenworth. Which we enjoyed very much as well! The city of Plain is sweet and quaint as well and there’s a great grocery with anything you need only a mile away! We can’t wait to go back!

I booked this cabin for my cousin's wedding and I absolutely loved this place. It had a beautiful view of the river and was very roomy,we never felt crammed. The bridal party stayed at this cabin and we had a great time, and it was only 12 minutes from the Brown Family Homestead her wedding venue.

We just returned from a 4 night stay in Stuchin cabin at Natapoc. Highly recommended! Charming and extremely clean and well maintained house/cabin. It was well equipped, peaceful, amazing view, and property. Zelda was very quick to answer our questions about the area and Beverly went above and beyond by offering and then driving us back to our car after a river float adventure. Even though there are neighbors on both sides, we still felt we had privacy. The deck had plenty of shade in hot weather. Air conditioner was helpful, wireless was strong, and the robes provided were a nice surprise. Can't wait to visit another time soon!

We held a family reunion and party for my dad's 90th there last week at the Mashawe cabin. It was the PERFECT! We had relatives show up from all over the country and everyone completely loved it. We held a big birthday barbecue right there on the deck. Neat, clean, spacious, beautiful - I highly recommend it!!

We stayed in a cabin 15 miles from Leavenworth for a long weekend with friends. Leavenworth was crowded but we did wine tasting and shopping. But what made a good trip great was the cabin. We sat out on the deck, watched wildlife and kayakers on the Wenatchee River and enjoyed ourselves, playing games, singing to great old songs and catching up with friends. This is an amazing place to stay. Our cabin, Coocoochin, sleeps 10 but there were six folks in our group. We like it so much we ate all of our meals there. An amazing place to stay!

We just held our family reunion at Natapoc Lodging, unitizing most of the cabins for our extended family--ranging in age from a few months old to 91 years young. As reunion organizer, a new location is always a gamble and living in CA meant that I had to book the location, sight unseen. Zelda made the whole process go smoothly--she was enormously helpful in getting us set up in the correct number of cabins for our group, and making sure our reunion was the best it could be. I did not have one complaint from the attendees, and everyone is ready to come back next year. During the days, our group was able to hike, float down the river, go horseback riding, visit Leavenworth, or just relax and enjoy the view. Zelda took excellent care of things while we were there too--checking hot tubs daily. Agree with other comments on how well the kitchens are set up and the ample supply of towels. Looking forward to our next reunion at Natapoc Lodging!

We were pleasantly surprised at the attention to detail and the overall condition of the cabin. I hauled a bunch of cooking gear with me, because when I have been told in the past there are pot, pans, etc. it usually turns out to be the worst stuff you have ever seen or non existent. Everything you need to cook is supplied. The cabin was super clean. There were plenty of towels. The decor is awesome. The information and instruction binder is detailed and complete. We stayed in Stuchin and will be staying in Lupine Manor in December. I cannot wait.

We stayed at Lupine Manor over the 4th of July weekend and it was one of our best family trips to date. We enjoyed escaping Seattle and getting into the hot sun. We went into Leavenworth, went river tubing and horse-back riding all nearby. While relaxing at the house, we really cherished the river views and access. The home itself is lovely, air-conditioned and with good wifi. The expanse of outdoor seating made it great for lounging either by the river or up on the deck. Zelda was a pleasure to deal with on top of it all. We will certainly return to Natapoc Lodging - and hopefully back to this property!

The location is very scenic, loved the proximity to the river and beautiful Wenatchee lake. lots of outdoor activities nearby made our trip very memorable and cherished by the family. Very helpful staff and the amenities were top notch, well furnished.

We decided to stay at Natapoc to celebrate our 30th anniversary. This will be the third time that we have stayed at Natapoc and each time has been as memorable as the first. Our hot tub overlooked the Wenatchee River. There was approximately 2 feet of snow on the ground and the wood fireplace was warm and cozy. We thoroughly enjoyed the sound of the river and the quiet solitude of the area. It was a wonderful getaway and we are looking forward to returning.

We loved everything about the Mahsahwe cabin! We had 15 in our group and had lots of space to relax in and plenty of sleeping places to spare. The setting was fabulous, the cabin was magical and made for a perfect Christmas! There was tons of snow and a great sledding hill right outside our door. Doesn't get much better than after a cold day of walking and sledding, to sit in the large hot tub overlooking the Wenatchee River! Zelda was a joy to work with and had an amazing decorated tree waiting for us. The huge floor to ceiling river rock fireplace was a perfect place to hang all our stockings and warm up by. It was one of the few places that allowed us to bring our 2 dogs. The kitchen was exceptionally well stocked. I would highly recommend this cabin to everyone we know. I would rate this place (and our experience) as a 12 on a scale of 1-10! I cannot wait to visit again!

For any city dweller who has ever dreamed of a weekend home on the Wenatchee River, Natapoc is the next best thing. Each log house claims one to five piney acres and at least 200 feet of riverfront. All are stocked with everything from a VCR to a microwave oven. And they come in all sizes from an utterly romantic twosome to a rambling twentysomething. The bigger homes are particularly well thought out, especially for groups (extra bedding, loads of silverware, two living areas, and a large out-of-the-way hot tub). There are lots of outdoorsy things to do, from fly-fishing to cross-country skiing, but frankly, all we really want to do is soak in the cabin’s hot tub and make angels in the snow.
Plain is rustic getaway just over Stevens Pass
It’s not that my brother-in-law Bellevue businessman Rich Favaro doesn’t like Christmas. “Uncle Rich” just wants a “real” Christmas. Rather than our annual, same-as-last-year, boring, suburban Christmas Eve, exchanging gifts and sipping hot spiced wines, Rich wondered if we wouldn’t prefer a three day getaway to a mountain cabin?
“Think about it. For what we could spend in time and effort looking for gifts for each other – not to mention the cost of the gifts themselves – we could rent a mountain cabin. Let’s don’t do a commercialized Christmas, for once. Let’s do an old fashioned Christmas.”
“The kids could go sledding. The adults could go cross country skiing. We could make a snowman, or a snowwoman, whatever we prefer. (Uncle Rich is very liberated) Maybe even a sleigh ride. A snowy hot tub.”
“Bill, you’re a travel writer. Find us a mountain cabin.”
Place called Plain
As of last weekend, I’m happy to report: mission accomplished. Plain, Wash., may have the best selection of rentable getaway cabins and B&Bs in all of Washington. What makes Plain even more appealing is the fact that it’s an easy two hour drive from the Eastside (of Western WA), just off of one of Washington’s best maintained roads.
No wonder Plain was new to me. It’s one of those lazy, scenic backroads that I rarely seem to have time to take. Only once had I ever turned off HWY 2, the Stevens Pass Highway, at the Coles Corner, Lake Wenatchee turnoff, and that was to go camping at the state park on the shores of Lake Wenatchee.
Too often we had rocketed by en route to Lake Chelan, Sun Mountain, Leavenworth, or the Grand Coulee country. The countryside between pristine Lake Wenatchee and Leavenworth is just what Uncle Rich had in mind for an old fashioned Christmas. Ponderosa pine trees and high-plains aspen, sliced by glacier fed lakes and rivers. Secret meadows dotted with ranch houses with lazy curls floating from their chimneys. Cows and horses in the pastures, and lots of deer, too.
And the sun shines 300 days a year. Lately some excellent properties have been developed for weekend-ing Eastside families as well as for retreating corporate sales meetings. Natapoc Lodging on Bretz Road, just a couple of miles up the Wenatchee River from Plain, offers more cabins, and these all rate A+ in design and setting. I stayed in the Stuchin cabin, a spanking-clean charmer with Native American inspired stained glass that matched the antique quilted wedding-ring design bedspread.
The cabins all have bright, cheery, modern kitchens with dishwashers. Each offers a good sized deck with a barbeque and a hot tub – perfect for high mountain star studded nights. Natapoc’s cabins are amazing. Each of the seven are remote from the others, giving a proper, spread-out feel to the experience. And every cabin affords in-you-face river views. Several of the larger cabins sleep up to 20 in flexible combinations of singles, doubles, queens and kings.
Each individual cabin was crafted with and aesthetic eye to classic log designs. Each is appointed with fun antiques, TVs with VCRs and in-cabin videos for enjoyment, and plenty of living room, dining, cooking and deck space. Natapoc doesn’t scrimp on bathrooms or showers, either. For cabin get-aways, this is not roughing it.

The Best Places to Kiss book write-up.
About 15 miles outside the bustling town of Leavenworth, with the surging Wenatchee River literally at your doorstep, seven private log and pine cabins await. Each one is named after a Native American word for a flower or tree. Because the cabins are tucked among 20 acres of tall pines and brilliantly colored wildflowers, privacy here is ensured. Not one cabin is visible from another, and each one has its own private driveway. Unfortunately, most of the accommodations here sleep many more than just two people (the largest cabin sleeps up to 21), so they are just too big to recommend for only one couple.
Don’t worry. We wouldn’t tell you about this stellar location and then not give you at least one overnight option with which to enjoy it. A wonderfully romantic honeymoon cabin named Stuchin (after the lily flower), offers much comfort and style, and is perfectly sized for just two people. Your spacious front porch has a front-row seat from which to view the rushing river and is equipped with a bubbling hot tub, barbecue equipment, and deck chairs for long hours of stargazing. Inside, a wood stove warms the living room and full kitchen on the main level. Climb up the open wood staircase to the master bedroom, which holds a queen-size bed draped with a beautiful Native American wedding ring quilt. A pretty stained glass window allows morning sunlight to filter through and wash the room in subtle color, and dried flowers accent the rustic log walls. Because this is not a bed and breakfast, you’ll have to bring along your own morning goodies, but coffee and tea are provided.
