We are located in the center of Washington state, nestled between the Cascade mountains and the Columbia river. The Wenatchee Valley is comprised of bustling communities on both sides of the river. The sister cities of Wenatchee and East Wenatchee are two cities and two counties divided by the mighty Columbia river but united as one community, while the town of Cashmere and Leavenworth, just 10 miles west, offers visitors a taste of vintage ‘small town America’ and Bavaria.
A city of 45,000 nestled between the banks of the Columbia River and the Cascade foothills, Wenatchee is only 12 miles from Mission Ridge. Wenatchee is known for its public market, outstanding wineries, brew pubs and local cuisine (not to mention the warm, friendly character of its people).
Recognized historically as the "Apple Capital of the World" because of its tree fruit roots, Wenatchee has become a favorite for outdoor enthusiasts. In the same day you can: water ski the Columbia River and ski Mission Ridge; whitewater raft Tumwater river and mountain bike the Sage Hills; enjoy a few round at the Highlander Golf Course and take a snowshoe trek; and ... you get the idea.
Spend some time here exploring. You'll understand why we call it paradise.
Leavenworth is a Bavarian-styled village in the Cascade Mountains, in central Washington State. Alpine-style buildings with restaurants serving German beer and food line Front Street. The Nutcracker Museum displays thousands of nutcrackers, some dating back centuries. On the Wenatchee River, Waterfront Park is a habitat for ospreys and eagles. The village is a gateway to nearby ski areas and wineries.
