Pastoral Plain, located roughly 13 miles north of Leavenworth, offers a respite from the Bavarian festivals and energy of our village. Originally called Beaver Valley, this peaceful, sun drenched valley is surrounded by the Wenatchee National Forest and Cascade Mountains. In the early 1900’s, the postal service claimed the name Beaver Valley was too long, so the residents asked the postmaster for a “plain” name…ironically, this beautiful valley is now called - Plain. Today, Plain is a wonderful little community with a charming “downtown” that includes Plain Hardware, Just Plain Grocery and Beaver Valley Lodging. Countless recreational hiking, biking and cross-country trails can be found here, making this a popular area for recreational and retirement investors.
