A little slice of Bavaria in the Cascade Mountains, Washington, the charming town of Leavenworth is famed for its alpine cabins and delicious bratwurst – you’ll even find shops selling lederhosen and other traditional German garb. Our choice of rental cabins in Leavenworth will help you enjoy this lovely town in style – and they’re bookable on Culture Trip.

1. Bavarian Lodge, for a four-poster bed

Looking like an alpine lodge straight out of the Black Forest, this lovely hotel has homely yet luxurious rooms with lovely old-world features such as checked carpets and four-poster beds hewn from rich wood. Choose a turret suite for magnificent views over the mountains and village. The Woodsman Pub, paneled with wood, is a cozy spot that specializes in Washington-brewed beers.

2. Haus Hanika, for adults-only time

This adults-only retreat is impossibly cute, with farmhouse-style decor including tartan curtains and gingham tablecloths in your own dining area beside the kitchenette. If you’re after a private rental cabin in Leavenworth choose the stand-alone chalet, wood-paneled with its own balcony and set in a quiet bend of the river. Hiking through the forest is right on your doorstep here.

3. Beaver Valley Lodge, for a stay rich in history

Leavenworth cabins don’t come much more attractive than the stand-alone properties at Beaver Valley Lodge. The Victorian Farm House has four bedrooms, kitchen and lounge and a rich history as the home of one of the original pioneer families. The Station has a similar design and is set beside a smooth lawn. Rooms are also on offer in the main lodge building.

4. WorldMark Leavenworth, for a fitness center

With its wooden balconies hung with bright-red flowers, and cozy suites with wooden floors, floral textiles and fireplaces mounted in stone walls, this is a bucolic kind of place and the perfect base from which to explore the beautiful countryside around Leavenworth. Skiing awaits in the winter; hiking and river swimming are on the agenda in the summer.

6. Loge Leavenworth Downtown, for design-forward rooms

The rooms and suites at this downtown Leavenworth hotel have a modern, Scandi look, but the minimalist design and pine furniture are offset by mountain-themed artwork, which pays homage to the famous great outdoors around Leavenworth. There’s a beer garden with a firepit where you can relax to live music in the evening, and guided yoga sessions every Sunday morning.

7. Der Ritterhof Inn, for ecofriendly practices
