Majestic Pines Lodge featured in NW Travel Advisor
Looking for the perfect idyllic getaway? Majestic Pines Lodge is the place to go says Cary Ordway, writer for Northwest Travel Advisory, who featured the Lodge in his article entitled "Pristine".
Tucked in the forest yet a short walk to Lake Wenatchee,Majestic Pines"offers anything most vacationers would want in a modern vacation home. It's 4,000 square feet and accommodates up to 14 people – with its many bedrooms and separate areas we could imagine it would work well for large groups. The home is decorated in earth tones, wood and slate and just has the feel of a mountain lodge with large wooden beams and lots of sunlight coming through the mammoth windows. There is a gourmet kitchen and a hot tub, ever popular with the kids we brought along – as was the widescreen satellite TV and games." says Ordway.
Using Majestic Pines as the "base of operations" Ordway "explored trails, rivers, the big beach at Lake Wenatchee State Park and lots of back roads that take you even deeper into the gorgeous Lake Wenatchee wilderness...There are two different experiences for those visiting in summer and winter. In summer it's hiking, fishing and lots of water activities; in winter it's cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, downhill skiing (30 miles away) and just simply enjoying the snowy landscapes."
Majestic Pines Lodge is just one of almost 50 properties managed by Destination Leavenworth, that include a superior selection of cabins, homes, condos and lodges in Leavenworth, Plain, and Lake Wenatchee areas./p>

Our new expansion project is complete
While the rest of you were probably enjoying a relaxing spring of summer vacation planning, here at Destination Leavenworth we were deeply involved with drywall construction, painting, moving office furniture, and installing new commercial washers and dryers. And the result of all our hard work? We’ve expanded our office spaces, and also now have a very efficient, new state-of-the-art commercial laundry facility that we’re thrilled about!
In short, we’re working hard to keep up with our growth. Having acquired additional office space in the same building as the receptionist’s area you’ve been familiar with, the new facility now houses administration, book-keeping, and maintenance departments, as well as a large new central laundry and supplies facility. What this means for you is more efficiency, prompt attention to detail, and consistently clean, high quality fresh new linens in all of our rental properties.
At Destination Leavenworth, we’re growing and expanding... and we’re excited about it!
