This is our fourth visit to Run of the River. Such a relaxing spot with spectacular views right off your deck. Rooms are spacious with every amenity. Mountain bikes are even provided...we bring our own...but nice to know they have good bikes available. Breakfast is a gourmet delight...and my spouse is a gourmet cook, so I should know...ha.

We stayed a week and loved every moment including the incredible breakfasts. Thank you to all of the cooks. The amazing service continued when our car wouldn't start. Jan's brother Scott came to our rescue trying to jump our battery. He tried many things to help us. Scott and Jan we will pay it forward. After 30 years of going... More

We love it here. A true peaceful getaway. Steve and Jan have made staying here such a special experience. The rooms are perfect, everything you could need and decorated in such a cozy fashion. The little touches from birdseed to backpacks and water bottles to take on your hikes are appreciated. The 5 course breakfast in the morning is the... More

We recently stayed 1 night at Run of the River. Our room was so nice & cozy. Great view of the creek and mountain. Breakfast the next morning was delicious and filling. If you are looking for a comfortable place to stay, this is a great find! Very close to town which we loved!

My wife and I recently had the pleasure of staying at this aptly named refuge, a short one-half day drive from Vancouver, British Columbia. The occasion was the celebration of our anniversary, and we soon discovered it is a popular venue for many couples celebrating their anniversaries. (Indeed, one couple was even on their honeymoon!) We stayed in the” Hit... More

Romantic, peaceful, secluded, friendly. Whatever you're looking for this is a must do. We just finished our second stay here celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. The staff pampers you to the upmost. The rooms are spacious with hot tubs and comfortable beds. So much to do around Leavenworth and the nearby outdoor hikes, evening theaters, rafting, cycling and so much... More

Thank you for the kind words Brian. We are always touched when guests choose to spend milestones with us! Just to clarify, for those reading this review - the in-room tubs are spa tubs, not hot tubs! We hope to see you two again soon! More

This is our favorite Country Inn! We love the serenity and ambiance at Run of the River. They've paid attention to every detail. Like art for the soul!

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

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!
