Flowers, Nursery Closed

Unfortunately, Featherwinds will not be operating their nursery this year. Normally, in the past, Featherwinds has operated Mountain Bounty Nursery. This is a nursery the owners and staff of Featherwinds started several years ago. With the growing demand from local and visiting friends and guests, Featherwinds increased its growing operation by over 200% from each previous year. Unfortunately, we will not be operating our nursery this year; fortunately it is because of our commitments to weddings, events and retreats scheduled for this spring, summer and fall. These commitments have to take precedent to our growing operation. We will not be taking down our "green house", "holding area" or our "sales area". We have not decided if closing the Nursery will be for just this year or if is going to be a permanent closure.

Thank you for your understanding and thank you for making our Nursery one of the biggest and most successful in the area.

Spring Is Coming, Snow Is Leaving

Even though we have been receiving snow lately, the much warmer daytime temperatures have melted most of the snow. The grass is starting to turn green and grow, bulbs are breaking ground and birds are returning to the area. The sun is out and temperatures are on the rise!

Fishing, hiking, horseback riding are all activities offered in the Upper Valley just outside of Leavenworth, Washington. If you are looking to get in that last snowshoe trip, you better hurry! Want to hit the slopes for that last ski or snowboard run, now is the time. Although conditions are starting to warm, there are some areas still open and available for snowshoeing, skiing, snowmobiling and cross country skiing.

You can stay at Featherwinds Lodging, then enjoy the day in the great outdoors or maybe take in a shopping trip to the Bavarian town of Leavenworth. Enjoy the sounds of birds as they return for the spring and summer. Watch for wildlife as they start to move around and explore the "new" surroundings.

You have many options in the Lake Wenatchee/Fish Lake Recreation Area in the Leavenworth Upper Valley of Leavenworth, Washington.

News Flash Leavenworth Lodging

ß News Flash à More Snow!

Over the weekend we received about 5" of new snow. Winter is not over yet; it is still hanging on. Last week we were getting "normal" springtime snow; fluffy, big, wet flakes. The springtime type snow came a little early (about 2 weeks); snow in the morning then warmth and sunshine during the day.

However, this weekend we received small, dry flakes reminiscent of a Christmas Eve snow storm. Current weather reports indicate the possibility of more snow and cold temperatures. If you enjoy the outdoors and snow sports, this could be a last chance to for winter time fun.

Here in the Lake Wenatchee, Leavenworth Upper Valley there are snowmobiling trails, cross country ski trails, snowshoeing and skiing available. If weekends are to busy to get away, try a mid-week adventure. Featherwinds does have lodging available in our B & B style Guest Inn, our Bed and Breakfast, in our lodges and cabins.

You can go to http://featherwinds.com to check availability and to book online.

News Flash, Leavenworth Lodging, Snowing

ß News Flash à It's snowing again! There is still time to hit the slopes.

Yes, it is snowing again, here in the Upper Valley in the Wenatchee Recreation Area, just outside of Leavenworth, WA. Not much snow is coming down, but fresh snow does bring the thought of enjoying any of the winter sports. If you are a skier, snowboarder, and snowmobiler or like to enjoy any winter sport; time is almost up for your outdoor enjoyment. We have had up to 40 degree weather lately; we have lost a lot of snow so if you keep putting off that last and final ski trip of the year, you better hurry.

So far today we have received about a ½ inch of fresh snow; it's not a lot but it sure makes everything look pretty. Maybe it's time to put together a group of friends for an outing filled with winter fun and relaxation. You can book a lodge or cabin for your group at Featherwinds. We are only about 30 minutes from Stevens Pass Resort. Spend the day skiing or snowboarding at Stevens Pass, then return to Featherwinds and enjoy a relaxing evening with your family and friends. Remember to bring your swim suit, our lodges and cabins have outdoor hot tubs to aid in your relaxation and fun. Fully furnished lodges including a full kitchen including pots and pans, plates and flatware, etc are perfect for a group gathering. And we must remember, all the cabins and lodges have gas fireplaces to enhance your relaxing stay.

Warm wishes,

Featherwinds Staff
