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 Central Cascade Mountains

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.


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!

We had a very nice visit in Leavenworth although every one of our kids came down with bad colds and were all at one point bedridden - thank good ness for all the bedrooms, I was able to quarantine them during our stay. All that said, the home was perfect for us and very clean and comfortable. The kids loved skipping rocks on the river and running around the property when the weather allowed. The heat was on and everything worked very well inside. The kitchen was loaded with everything we needed. However, I had concerns cooking in the pans, I don't think they are made well for the heavy duty gas stove *WHICH I LOVED* in the kitchen. The one non-stick pan had been severely abused and the Teflon was coming off. I wouldn't cook in that pan. I understand it can be difficult to have nice tools in a kitchen where people don't always treat things with respect. You should never use metal on Teflon! Regardless, I had everything I needed to make all my meals for my family. Every utensil was there, every wine glass was available (loved the variety!) and my daughter even had her milk in a wine glass one night. She said it was fancy.

My only other issue was that WIFI never worked, although I can't imagine it has a huge signal being all the way out there, so be prepared for that. The sauna did not work either. We didn't make a fuss because we weren't there long enough and honestly it wasn't the reason we selected this home. We selected it as a great place for our kids to play and was big enough for all of us to relax on spring break, which we did.

Thank you Greg for sharing your home and providing us a fabulous place to spend a couple days on spring break. We really enjoyed our visit and you! We will certainly recommend and return.

Great property, lots of space.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Riverdanc Lodge was great. There was a ton of room, and plenty of beds. The property is just a few minutes drive from town.

Someone had built two sledding ramps that went down into the backyard, and there were sleds waiting. We had a lot of fun with those.

Greg was a great host, responding quickly to my questions and offering advice on things to do in the area.

absolutely breathtaking!

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have asked for anything more! This beautiful home not only met our needs but exceeded our expectations. Greg is the perfect host. He had the heat and music on for our arrival. We ended up being stuck on the East side of the passses due to closures. Greg let us stay a few extra hours to help accommodate our unexpected plans . We will be back!

This was such a great find! The house is cozy and set up with everything you need for a weekend away. It's also right on the river so the view is stunning! The house slept 10 of us comfortably.

My family and I had a wonderful time staying at the Riverdance lodge. There were nine of us and two dogs and had plenty of space for all of us. The owner is very, very nice and this is a place we would definitely love to come back and stay at. We were so close to town and the river was out our back yard so my grown boys had fun playing on the frozen ice! We all truly enjoyed our stay!!
