Been there 3 times and won't change a thing, except maybe their Strawberry Cheesecake. We wanted it again :-) Jan and her staff are the best there is! As soon as you walk through the doors, your mood changes. You feel so at peace and rested! Every detail is thought of and tended to. From the tea candles to the...

Three times back, planning a fourth, and we wouldn’t stay anywhere else in (or near) Leavenworth. Surroundings are beautiful. Quiet and serene, and the location is perfect; far enough from town that you’re not on top of the crowds, yet close enough for a three minute drive –or- a brisk walk or run into Leavenworth and all its fun. The...

We make at least one visit per year to Run of the River, usually staying 3 nights. Its our favorite B&B. We also love Leavenworth and the surrounding area. It is our favorite northwest destination during any season, but particularly in winter, early summer or fall. We like to go snowshoeing, cross country skiing, or hiking. But we also think...

My husband and I stayed here for our 10 year anniversary. Upon arrival we were blown away by the size of our room ( Hit The Trail). The staff was absolutely AMAZING. This is the kind of destination that you could literally stay in the room your whole trip and feel so rejuvenated. It is conveniently located close to Leavenworth....

The accommodations at Run of the River were amazing to say the least. The location is magical. It made a perfect little getaway. Our room had a scenic view of the river which we enjoyed on our private deck with a bench swing. It was just the weekend we needed to getaway from our busy lives for a moment. Perfect...

We enjoyed a three night respite in mid December...Kingfisher! We LOVED our room as we had our own private deck overlooking the enchanted forest and such a beautiful small river...I took several photos.
