Chiwawa River Lodge

We were so blessed to be invited to join our friends at Chiwawa River Lodge outside of Leavenworth, WA for a long weekend.  The lodge was huge with enough room for four families to each have their own space. This was our room overlooking the Chiwawa River. We had great weather the whole time.  The beds were comfy and I slept like a rock at night. Now that the kids are older, I was even able to take a nap one day!

This huge table was suspended from the rafters. We were all able to fit around it at meal times. It was perfect and easy to sweep under, too!

Our friends, Rick and Mindy, who invited us. We had enough food between our four families to feed an army! We certainly didn't starve.

Michael enjoying the fireplace with the kids. We did s'mores one night. So nice to have a real fire indoors!
Here is the lodge from the outside. You can see just how big it is. There was also about 3 feet of snow on the ground in some places. The kids had a ball playing in it. We went sledding one day at Wenatchee Lake, which was super fun. Even the adults joined in and tried to beat each other's distances. 

I took this picture of the Chiwawa River standing at the front door of the lodge.

There was even a hot tub! 

More to come on our shopping trip to the town Bavarian-themed town of Leavenworth...
