3 night couples ski getaway.
Very basic. Do not expect a luxury inn. This is a 2.5 star property. However, we still loved it. And at $130/night, it was not a bad value, though still a bit overpriced.
Very friendly welcome from a Leavenworth townie in a dirndl. Couldn't help but enjoy the irony of an eastern WA local townsperson sporting an elaborate Bavarian getup. Looked more like a Halloween costume on her. She was very nice though! (Could have used a fake German accent to round out the image, though.)
Good room - small and basic, but clean and comfortable. Even had a balcony overlooking... nothing. No flat screen TV or 3 star+ amenities. A very cozy, 2.5 star room. Great shower, especially after a day on the ski slopes.
Location is a bit far from the downtown drag of Leavenworth. However, closer to Stevens (where we were skiing). Watch out for the radar-gun-abusing county coppers that line Route 2 if you go skiing at Stevens. They love busting yuppie Seattle types to bring much-needed $ to their depressed local economies (I got a ticket for 67 in a 60... ridiculous... the road was clear and I was in an AWD car... perfectly safe). But I digress...
The breakfast was great - very basic but great. Also, the desert at night is an awesome little touch. Loved the cake and tea!
Would highly recommend the Alpen Rose to anyone, so long as you aren't expecting luxury, but rather basic, yet comfortable (and slightly overpriced) accommodations shrouded in a wanna-be Bavarian facade. Contrived? Yes. Awesome? I think so.
Couples or families would be fine here. Don't pay more than $130 per night, or you are getting a poor value. I would say this place should be charging about $110 per night.
Also - pool closed in the winter. Bummer. They should heat it and keep it open!
Overall, great place if you come with low expectations.
