My husband and I had a wonderful time at the Inn. The views are amazing, the wildlife was so fun to watch. The rooms are so thoughtfully put together and adorable! Definitely a must if going to Leavenworth! The people are great and Fanny... Shes the CUTEST!

We understand why this inn gets such positive reviews. The location is ideal -- a slice of peace not far from downtown Leavenworth, overlooking a quiet stream. Although it doesn't look like much when you drive up, once inside everything is wonderful. Solid pine throughout, with decorative touches everywhere. Jan's attention to detail is evident not just in the decorations,... More

From the moment we walked into our room we didn't want to leave...there was no reason to! Every detail was taken care of and we wanted for nothing. Run of the River truly is a refuge.

We discovered Run of the River a few years ago and have been returning every year. From the moment you turn into the tree lined drive & see the Inn it is enchanting.

My husband and I just stayed at Run of the River for the 3rd time. Jan and Steve are wonderful. Jan always decorates for the holidays/seasons which makes it feel more like home. Everything is amazing the rooms, view and the Breakfast (best part). It is secluded but still only 5 minutes from town. I am always recommending Run of... More

Three times back, planning a fourth, and we wouldn’t stay anywhere else in (or near) Leavenworth. Surroundings are beautiful. Quiet and serene, and the location is perfect; far enough from town that you’re not on top of the crowds, yet close enough for a three minute drive –or- a brisk walk or run into Leavenworth and all its fun.
