Run of the River is absolutely amazing! Our room was completely comfortable and all the extra touches made it a delightful experience. Breakfast was huge & wonderfully prepared. The property is beautiful and the staff fantastic. We have stayed in b&b's all over the world & this one is worth going back to time & time again!

Try to get one of the rooms facing the wildlife refuge directly behind the inn. We had the Enchantments room, and in one afternoon sitting on the deck we saw, a mother bear and 2 cubs, several deer and their fawns, 6 raccoons in pack, 2 blue herons, a hawk, and then a solitary bear. They all love to frolic... More

David, you are definitely one of the lucky ones to have seen mother bear and her cubs as well as our juvenile loner! And for the record, all the suites have the same view of the refuge! We hope to see you again soon! More

I recently stayed at Run of the River Bed & Breakfast, and was I surprised and delighted. I had always heard of B&B's with frilly decorations and shared bathrooms ... but this is nothing like that at all! Our suite was decorated in a nature theme, with a king-sized log bed, river rock spa tub and fireplace and private bathroom... More

I stayed at the recommendation of a friend. Found the room to be adequate and breakfast was good. If you're going to take a bath, beware. The jets are not cleaned out on a regular basis and are full of mold. Everything else was clean and comfortable. The location is excellent, and the grounds are impeccable. I found the owner... More

This B&B is nestled in the woods on the banks of the Icicle Creek. It was a short drive to the Bavarian-themed town of Leavenworth. The entire property was amazing.

This is a fantastic bed and breakfast in Leavenworth. It is just far enough out of town to make you really feel like you're in the mountains, and yet a short ride into town for dinner or other activities. Aside from the breathtaking landscape, the rooms are top notch. Many places in Leavenworth do the tub in the room thing,... More
