Having taken the North Cascades Loop in reverse order, the Leavenworth area was the best stop along the route - without a doubt. Living in the Houston TX area, the mid-September stay w/ highs in the mid-70's, lows in the mid-50's, barely a cloud in the deep blue sky, was just what the doctor ordered. Add to that the choice of Granite Hills Inn (on the outskirts of Leavenworth, property set off the road with a deep back yard that ends up against one of the many surrounding mountain ranges), the spacious & comfortable 2nd floor Maple suite, a scrumptuous breakfast, gracious hosts Bill & Paula who both went beyond the call of duty to make our stay memorable...one of our best B&B stays EVER!!! The only regret was that it was for only one night. A definite must do again!!
