This eco built house, called a straw bale house, is a beautiful, serene and unique place to spend quality time indoors and out. Surrounded by mountains, the house is close to outdoor adventures and just a 5 minute drive to the Bavarian village!
Our beautiful house is located at the mouth of Icicle Canyon on Icicle Road just 3 miles outside of the town of Leavenworth. The Icicle Straw Bale House includes all the comforts of home with ample space for up to 6 people. Two bedrooms with very comfortable beds, 2 flat screen smart TV's- one is shared in the family room loft and the other in one of the bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, one with a stand up shower, the other with a claw foot bathtub to soak in; laundry facilities; a full kitchen with everything a cook needs; 24 foot ceilings in the great room, a wood stove, wireless internet, and an assortment of games and books for your use. There is also a deck for enjoying mountain views and the starlit sky! Cozy and inviting, our house offers everything you need for an amazing vacation: a quiet country location, panoramic views of the Cascade Mountains, thousands of stars to gaze at in the clear night sky and the Bavarian village is just a short drive away! At the Icicle Straw Bale House you can have it all; recreate, be entertained, wine and dine or simply curl up in bed and enjoy a good book. Nothing could be better!
Guests have access to the whole house, deck, side and front yard.
As we live in Portland, our interactions will be via calls, emails or texts. We are happy to answer any questions you have during your stay.
We are family friendly and provide a high chair and a dining booster seat for toddlers.
There are spiral stairs leading to the family room loft area, but all other living is on the first floor. So it is suitable for elders and wheelchairs if needed.
- Quiet hours are after 10.
Icicle Guest House is where our family goes to stay when we leave our busy lives in Portland, Oregon. I remember the day we were taking our favorite drive up Icicle Canyon and saw the tiny wooden sign that said "for sale". We couldn't believe that we were going to build a house on this amazing piece of land! Stunning views, National Forest Land up the road and the Sleeping Lady Retreat Center right across the street! We loved living in Leavenworth and are so are happy to call it our home away from home!
