Ready to build your own little winter wonderland? This one-acre property in Leavenworth has not one, but two cabins, along with a collection of outdoor draws. It’s right off Highway 2, with winter magic in either direction. Drive 25 minutes to the southeast and find Leavenworth’s heavily Bavarian-esque city center—perhaps the state’s most iconic seasonal destination, since it’s nestled in among the mountains and looking like a gingerbread village is baked into the town’s very zoning. The Stevens Pass Ski Area is just 25 minutes in the other direction, so you can’t throw a snowball without hitting some kind of cold-weather playground.

These cabins are not for roughing it—they’re both fully equipped as full-time homes. The main building has deep après-ski vibes, with two stories and a pitched gabled roof. The other, a manufactured home with its own privacy fence, has been outfitted into an ideal getaway.

The first has plenty of space to stretch out; an open-concept first floor includes a living area with an electric fireplace, built-in shelves, and so much capacity for lounging. Right now, it has a sectional, a futon, and love seat with room to spare. Around the corner, find a full-length dining room table and a kitchen with ample counter and cabinet space. There’s one bedroom down here, with additional accommodations upstairs: one a long room with two king beds, and the other a more private room with French doors to a back deck. It also has an arched mural depicting an entryway to a quaint, fairy-tale town, echoing a smaller one in the living area. A grill and a hot tub sit right outside the front door.

The other home has its own magic going on, like a real wood stove and a large, barbecue-ready deck facing the nature side of the property. It’s cozier, but it uses its smaller space well: The kitchen has both a half-log bar and an adorable built-in breakfast nook. Its central gathering space has its own large sectional, plus a window bench to round out the conversation area. It has two bedrooms—one staged as a private room, the other with full-size bunk beds.

The surrounding acre has plenty of opportunities for relaxing in any season, with lawns and thickets alike. A clearing next to the cabins holds both an in-ground firepit and a hot tub with its own little patio. Nearby, a garden has a handful of raised beds, including one that looks like it's already full of strawberries, and a quaint little shed. Of course, the entire area is just as fun in the summer as the winter, with hiking trails, river floating, and everything else the area has to offer.
