My husband and I make a pilgrimage to Leavenworth annually in order to stay at Run of the River bed and breakfast. The creativity of the art that changes every season, the food and sheer beauty pulls us back to this delightful place

5-Star Accomodation. We stayed for only 2 nights and wished we had made plans for 3 or 4. No detail is left unattended to. The views are breathtaking, the rooms VERY comfortable and romantic, and the food is over the top delicious. They also have lots of suggestions for drive tours, bike routes, shopping, dining and anything else you could possibly want. We'll be suggesting Run of the River to anyone visiting the area!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Great Northwest room. The view is fantastic!!

My wife and I stayed here for our 10 year anniversary and it was so very nice. The rooms are exquisite and cozy. We had a great view from the room and the owners are willing to help out with anything that we asked. We will definitely stay here again.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights in January as the Seattle Snowmageddon of 2012 was ongoing. I'm not exaggerating when I say that it took us over 7 hours to make what should have been about a 2 and a half hour drive; bear in mind, I'd just finished a 48 hour shift...I'm a firefighter...and Thanks to the weather, rest had been minimal. The moment we arrived at Run of the River, all the stress, frustration and worry of the previous days was replaced with complete and utter contentment. This place is absolutely enchanting. Rustic yet tasteful and authentic, Jan and her staff have a remarkable eye for detail. Delicious breakfast in the morning, close to town yet blissfully quiet...if you are looking for a place in Leavenworth to recharge...stop your search this instant and get here. Now.

This is one of the most amazing bed and breakfast inns--a true escape for nurturing the body and soul. Your every desire has been anticipated and met. Each room has a view of the mountains, wildlife refuge and tributary of the Icicle River. You luxuriate in comfortable beds, wake up to heated floors, take a rain shower, then head to a scrumptious breakfast. Jana and Steve, the innkeepers, are gracious hosts and will assist you with your daily activities and dinner reservations.

The Inn provides bicycles and snow shoes for your entertainment. From the refuge, we have seen deer, a bear, and a plump raccoon. Run of the River has bird houses everywhere and supplies bird feed for your deck feeders. You really do not need to leave the Inn; it is so pleasant to just sit on your deck and absorb the beauty of your surroundings.

We stayed at Run of the River with the previous owners and were pleased to see the Inn has only gotten better. We celebrated my husband's birthday here in August and had such a great time, we returned for our anniversary in January. It was a magical time with the ice festival in town--Leavenworth twinkling with Christmas lights, snow falling gently, and fireworks lighting up the sky. We have decided to return next year.

Room Tip: Each room is wonderful with river rock jacuzzi tubs, fireplaces, and luxurious beds.

My in-laws have stayed here each year for over 10 years so when we booked our 5 year anniversary trip we knew we were in for something special. We were originally booked in a suite but they surprised us and upgraded us to the Ravenwood Lodge. The ammenities and special touches were more than we could ask for. We loved everything about our stay (especially the warm conversations with the owners) and although Run of the River is more expensive than other places you could stay in Leavenworth, we definitely recommend splurging to stay here! We wish we could've stayed longer. By the end of our stay we were relaxed and refreshed to head home to our two little ones (and one on the way!) and we will definitely plan a trip back here when we can get away. Thanks, Run of the River, for a magical stay!

Room Tip: If you want extreme luxury go for Ravenwood Lodge. If you are looking for a more quaint environment...
