This cabin in the woods still close to civilization
By CARY ORDWAY
The holidays are the perfect time to trek off to that cabin in the woods, start a fire in the fireplace and settle in for some quality time with the family, right? Only problem is there is something called “cabin fever” and, when you're vacationing as a family, even the best of intentions can result in a mini-disaster.
So what to do when you have parents, grandparents and sane adults wanting to take it easy and watch the snow fall while you have everyone under the age of 39 clamoring to go “do something.” This cabin in the woods stuff, the kids will tell you, is just not all that it's cracked up to be.
Solution: The Edgewater vacation rental in Leavenworth, the fun little town in North Central Washington that has been reborn as a Bavarian village like you would visit in the Austrian Alps. Whether you're seeking that quiet cabin in the woods or a busy holiday filled with shopping and dining, the Edgewater will fill the bill.
The Edgewater is located on the edge of the Wenatchee River, directly across from Leavenworth's Waterfront Park and, from this riverside location – believe it or not – it feels like you're in the middle of the woods. This vacation home is set apart from its neighbors and right on the river. With its view of the Enchantment Mountains, itís easy to pretend youíre spending your holiday in some far-off location away from people, and away from the everyday hustle and bustle of your job.
The “elders” in your family group will enjoy this private lodge and its gorgeous views and may well settle in for the duration. The lodge actually is three separate, but interconnected buildings. The middle building is the great room with a modern fully-equipped kitchen, a gas log stove and an open area for dining or playing games or just sitting and enjoying the view through the large windows. Itís also where youíll gather as a family to watch TV.
