My husband and I stayed at Run of the River for our ten year anniversary and had a wonderful time. The room (Kingfisher) was beautiful, comfortable, and very romantic. We loved the large private deck with porch swing overlooking the river. . . We saw a wide variety of birds (thanks to the bird feeders), wood ducks, geese, and river...

INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 27 February 2017

We stayed Sat and Sun and I didn't want to leave! This was my second trip and it didn't disappoint. Every single detail is taken care of, and you instantly relax upon pulling up in the driveway to the Inn. The rooms are luxurious and rustic chic. The wrap around porch was amazing, and we spent time out there sitting...

We came with our adult children and thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Leavenworth! The snow fell straight down, and the wind didn't blow making it perfect! The owners, Jan and Steve were so welcoming and worked hard to make sure our time there was perfect! The breakfast couldn't be beat, and the holiday decorations were gorgeous!! Each room was immaculate...

We found Run of the River by doing a search for elopement in Washington. We had never been there before and I am so very glad we took the chance. Every detail is thought of. We were simply blown away by the room, the amenities, the view!!! We stayed in the Enchantments suite and I honestly could have stayed longer....

The first time I stayed at Run of the River it was a truly enchanting experience. It was very expensive, but that was to be expected.
