About Greg

Michigan native. Enjoy the outdoors! Love nature and my canine Aussie - Abby.

In 1980, I set out from Michigan to Washington, a 2,400 mile cross country hike in search of the perfect location for me to call home. I found it here in Leavenworth.

I also found that inn keeping is my passion. In 1983, I started my first lodging business. In 2005, River Meadows LLC was born and Riverdance Lodge opened which later expanded to include Meadowdance Lodge and Meadowdance Chalet.

One of the things that I enjoy is that I have my own salmon hole at Riverdance Lodge to share with my guests. I feel very fortunate to have found my home in a magical location....come share the dance with me.

Greg purchased this house in 2006

Why Greg chose Leavenworth

In response to a for sale ad in the newspaper, my first visit to the property was in the spring of 1988.

When I found the property, there was only a primitive dirt road. It was early morning as I walked through the rough trail with my six-month old son Josh on by back and my golden lab "Honey". I remember asking myself if we were at the right place. We wound down through the thick stand of Cottonwood trees and various wild bushes when suddenly the trail opened to an incredibly expansive and breathtaking meadow. I realized that I was standing at the confluence of the Wenatchee and Icicle Rivers.

I stood in awe in that early morning light gazing at the surrounding snow capped mountains where the two rivers met. I knew that I had found a special place. I'll always remember that day, Josh gurgling with laughter as we skipped stones on the river and Honey fetching sticks...I didn't waste any time purchasing what is now Riverdance Lodge.

Now, more than 20 years later and all the dancing my family have experienced on this river, we offer to share this dance with you.

-Greg

What makes this house unique

It's Not a House, It's an Experience!

You’re stay is my first priority. Your fun starts when making reservations. As the owner, I can assist you in planning your retreat/vacation. You won’t have the usual concerns of where to go for fun or who has the best safety record. You can relax and let the scenery go by or for those looking for a little more adventure there are lots of activities right out the front door.

Photo opportunities are everywhere, eagle, deer and bear are common sightings. Hang out at the rivers edge for the next critter experience or kick back on the deck and let the next photo come to you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your beautiful vacation home with my friends & family. The moment we walked through the door we nearly jumped with delight. This place is Amazing!. We all agreed if we could, we would live here. With your warm welcoming tour, you could not have made this vacation any more picture perfect!



We are already making plans to return. Thank you so much!

Private and cozy

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful location on the river with a variety of weather, including a foot of snow overnight! Loved the hot tub and sauna. Greg personally came and cleared snow off the deck to provide access to the hot tub. Lots of ping pong was played. Would definitely stay here again.
