“Amazing all around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

My man friend and I came here to check out the nearby Bavarian Village and to get away from the Seattle rain. The staff was very personable and informative. The inn itself very clean, quiet, and cozy. Our room had its own balcony with a beautiful view of the river. We were able to climb down to the riverbank and spend some time there too. I think this was my favorite part of the inn, which makes it unique in comparison to the other nearby hotel accommodations. We also took advantage of the complimentary breakfast, which consisted of cereal, various pastries, hard-boiled eggs, ham, potatoes, waffles and oatmeal. The swimming pool and hot tub is open 24-hours, however, it did not look that appealing as it was relatively small and could use a good cleaning. Overall, I am impressed by the quality and services of this inn and would recommend it to others. Thank you!

Don't get the idea that this is a "quaint inn". This looked and felt like a tired old motel right down to the tiny lobby and room doors you park your car in front of. It had some good points, but first the negative. Our room had an ugly foyer with an old couch. The area was no more than 10 feet wide and I think the couch opened up into a bed. There was a tiny TV in there, a small microwave and refrigerator. I would not have wanted to sleep in there! The carpet throughout was an ugly outdated dark green. The outdoor pool was very, very small, and the Jacuzzi nothing but a regular hot tub set in the ground and surrounded by a tall fence. The river is right behind the property, but it's down a very steep bank with no easy access. The breakfast was not home-made by any means, and it was very sparse. The "pastries" consisted of 1 pastry about an inch long/wide - one bite. So, no. This is not a quaint Bavarian inn. But now for the positive. The bathroom looked like it had been updated and was very nice - great water pressure in the shower. The bedroom was very large with a very comfortable king size bed and down pillows and comforter. Furniture was Bavarian-style. There was a 30" (a bit small and far from the bed) flat screen TV. The room came with bathrobes and pool towels. The small balcony looked out onto the river and we could see the cute marmots in the rocks next door. Guests have complimentary use of Enzyan Falls putting course nearby. There is a view of the snowy peaks from the parking lot and pool, and the inn is located just outside of town. There were hardly any guests at this time of year, so it was pleasantly quiet. So if you just want a basic place to sleep while visiting Leavenworth, this is o.k. But if you are looking for more ambiance, then I would not recommend.

We so appreciated such a wonderful place to stay! Very clean, cozy, quiet & serene.
Our private deck overlooking the river, comfortable bed & authentic room made it feel like home. The breakfast was hearty and good and we loved watching the marmots come out to play. We enjoyed the hottub several times each day and liked the 24 hour a day useage option!. Thank you for your delightful staff hospitality and for 3nd night free which fell on our anniversary date! We so look forward to our next visit. God Bless you!

Room Tip: In a setting of it's own just minutes from heart of town. Best of both worlds! If you like to...

We stay here frequently while in leavenworth. this hotel is a 10 minute walk from town so it usually does not fill up as fast as the closer lodgings. The hotel is older, you still use a room key..but every room has a balcony overlooking the river and the rooms are clean and decorated in a classic Bavarian style. The ladies in the office are always very friendly and the remodeled breakfast room is beautiful and bright.

Room Tip: Not all rooms have a refrigerator, be sure to ask if you want one.

My husband loves to fly fish, so being right on the river was a big plus for us. He was able to head down after breakfast and fish, while I stayed in the cozy, comfortable room to read and write. We enjoyed the close proximity to Leavenworth's shops and restaurants, without being right in the middle of it, so it still felt like we were "away." The building is not fancy, but our room was very clean, comfortable and well-supplied with a small fridge and coffee pot. The staff was very friendly, and we loved being able to have our dog with us. We spent one evening in the hot tub, which was very relaxing, especially since it was so cold outside! While we look forward to visiting other spots and trying out other B&B's, we would definitely consider another visit to the Alpine Rivers Inn.

Lovely clean rooms right on the river. A little older but awesome. Friendly staff, great breakfast in a cozy room and dog friendly. Quiet rooms with down comforters. Nice hot tub just outside of town but very convenient. Seems to attract a quieter clientele then some of the in town places which are more party oriented.

Three women and two dogs stayed here during the middle of the week for two nights. We came out to do a little snowshoeing and sightseeing. I believe there was one other guest the whole time we were here. Our room was clean and the beds were comfortable. The view off of the deck was beautiful, although it was a little too cold to sit outside - will definitely come back and stay here when it warms up.

The owner was super friendly and went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was great! You get a choice of up to 4 entrees. I had ham one day, sausage on another day, fruit, waffles, granola, yogurt, etc. It was quite the selection.

Some people have mentioned that it's "too far from town". I guess that's a matter of perspective. It's probably less than a mile to town, an easy walk if you're in shape. We chose to drive (5 minutes - tops) since it was so cold out.

We had a great trip and are looking forward to coming back in the summer to do a little hiking.
