Nestled in the Beaver Valley 20 miles west of Leavenworth, WA, Mountain Springs Lodge is a horse lover’s paradise. This scenic lodge and rustic getaway has been in owner Bill Newell’s family for six generations and is rich in history and tradition. The lodge can accommodate nearly 200 people and hosts some 50 weddings per year. It is a favorite for family reunions, business conferences, and church retreats as well as anyone looking for a warm, friendly atmosphere in which to relax and rejuvenate.

For horse lovers, this is a must-do destination full of possible adventures on horseback. Serene and scenic, miles of trails with views of Lake Wenatchee beckon riders from novice to advanced; bring your own horse or borrow one at the lodge. Mountain Springs Lodge also offers sleigh and wagon rides. In addition to horses, guests can also enjoy snowmobiling, cross country skiing, and fly fishing. Pets are welcome and can stay on site.

Reasonably priced, the lodge has big city benefits such as first class accommodations, a world class chef, Wi-Fi, and TV (though who’d want to watch it?). Year-round, Mountain Springs Lodge offers an unforgettable retreat provided by a remarkable family tradition.
