Reviewed August 19, 2010

I really enjoyed the stay, although I can't say it was what I expected. I imagined a lodge, far removed from civilization, but it was very close to town amid quite a busy neighborhood. Our room was super nice - the jacuzzi in the room was a big hit, so was a super nice modern bathroom. The room was spotless. We also loved the opportunity to bike around on the bike provided by the inn. Staying inside the room you get a feeling that you are tucked away in the mountains, but stepping outside of the room brings you back to reality pretty quickly - a buzzing compressor in the property nearby and the road noise that you can hear remind you that you are in town. I guess I had a different impression from reading the description of the hotel, but the stay was very nice anyway thanks to the excellent property management.

Steve and Jana have taken over the Run of the River B&B and after visiting this weekend we are so impressed with the new inn keepers. This is our favorite B&B and it demands an annual trip to relax and recharge.

The rooms are so beautiful and well appointed from the heated floors in the bathroom to the comfortable beds and view of the Icicle River Canyon. Each time the details and personal notes make you feel so welcome and ready to be "home" for a few nights.

The morning breakfast is THE BEST! Jana can cook and combine the flavors and textures that make us have to push away from the table after eating more than we intended. This is a signature element of this B&B. The new inn keepers have assumed the challenge of making everyone feel warm and welcome. Steve delivers each course with humor and descriptions to prepare your palete for the meal.

If you need a restful place to go and want to be pampered on beautiful grounds with mountains rising from the nearby hills, this is a"not to be missed" location!

We love the place and are already taking about when we plan to return.

This is a great place! (just like most other reviewers have found)
We had the Enchantments room, which was huge (the size of a small appartment), great outdoor space, two log swings just big enough for a cuddling couple :), super bathroom, underfloor heating, wonderful big shower, jacuzzi in the room and a four poster log bed with a step up because again it's huge.

It's all extrememy well set up, clean and hyper tidy. Little touches like birds seed, a day backpack, warm blankets, everything you possibly could need is here.

Electrical fireplace, comfy chairs, Enchantments has it all. The terrace facing the Icicle Creek/River is great because there is loads of wild life out there, so just sit in your log swing put some seeds on the feeding platform for the birds, wait 2 seconds and they all gather around! Apart from birds, we had deer coming to sip the cold waters in the morning and evenings and a black bear was around after dark to shake up some of the garden furniture. Luckily Enchantments is on the first floor!

Very welcoming hosts, voluminous breakfast, all freshly made, it's all tops.
It's not cheap but I think for a stay without kids, it's peaceful, luxurious in a mountain-log-cabin way and it's good value for money.
A must stay in the Pacific North west.

After 30 years of marriage, I decided to surprise my wife by renewing our wedding vows at Run of the River.
We stayed in the Ravenwood Lodge, which was very private and absolutely fantastic! Steve and Jan worked with me in every way possible to keep the renewal a secret from my wife for two days until my daughter arrived. My wife was totally surprised!
The Inn is absolutely THE BEST we have ever stayed in. The service is impeccable, the breakfast was by far the best we've had at any inn, and presentation was unbelieveable!
We found it very hard to leave the lodge daily because it was just so peaceful and relaxing. The view from the porch swing was absolutely georgous!
Run of the River is THE place to go to get away from the rat race and relax to the point where you feel you have become an invertebrate. We are already looking at the calendar to see when we can go back.

When my husband and I are in need of some time away, we look for a great B&B. At the top of our list of favorites is Run of the River, the perfect escape for a weekend away from the stress of work and home. Since the first time we stayed back in 2000, we have always talked about returning to the Inn. We loved it then, and it’s even better now. We were greeted warmly when we arrived, and we felt very welcome. The rooms at Run of the River were designed to create an atmosphere conducive to romance, relaxation, and privacy. From the heated floors, the comfy robe, and the large bathroom with two sinks, to the fireplace, Jacuzzi tub, and deck overlooking the river, everything was perfect! The Inn offers snowshoes, backpacks, walking sticks, picnic baskets, and just about anything you might want for an outdoor activity. I remember how delicious the breakfasts were ten years ago, and they are just as great now, if not better. Each morning we were served an organic fruit smoothie, our own individual serving of a baked fruit, followed by a fresh fruit tray and the main course. Everything was over the top! The hosts were friendly and have done a beautiful job with the décor. We enjoyed every minute of our stay, and although the Inn is now under new ownership, it remains at the top of my list of best B&B’s in the area. I would highly recommend it to others, and I just hope it’s not another ten years before we make a trip back.

Location, location, location followed by a fabulous room and superb food. You know you are in a special place the moment you wind down the driveway and spot the beautifully designed lodge. A warm welcome from the new owners and your first look at the spectacular breakfast room and you think it can't get any better that this. Then Steve brings you up the stairs, unlocks your room and steps back to watch your reaction. Wow! Huge room, big wood beams, rock fireplace, leather chairs, ladder to a reading loft, big jaccuzi tub surrounded by river rock. There are no words. You spend 15 minutes wandering, before you even get to the deck with the swinging bench and the incredible view. This would be perfect if it stopped there. It is the attention to detail that puts you over the top. The backpack hanging on the the deck for your hikes. The throw to keep you warm in the chill morning air. The binoculars and bird book by the fireplace. The bag of birdseed for your personal feeder. Fresh ground coffee at the push of a button. Luxury robes in the incredible bathroom. Candles in the handcrafted star that casts patterns on the ceiling at night....Then the next morning it's breakfast. No. Can't call it breakfast. Is there such a word as feastfast? Just when I think I'm done more fabulous food comes out. On our third and last day as I watch the otter frolic in the pond below our deck I know we will be back. After all we didn't get to use the great bikes they provided. We won't have to pack our snowshoes next time as they provide those as well. Steve and Janna truly have a refuge. The service was spectacular. The atmosphere warm, comforting and beautiful to the eye. Absolutely the best!
