Up early again, cleaned up a bit from the night before and took back the borrowed wine glasses to the main lodge. Admired their views. Fixed a light lunch and then went for a 5-mile hike up Icicle Road. The log cabins along the river there were quite amazing, but they all appeared to be either strictly weekend or summer places.
Chris was up bright and early at 5:30, and I followed suit a half hour later. Breakfast was brought over at 9:30--yogurt, smoothies, fruit, scrambled eggs and pico. The funny thing was that they didn't serve any bread--very strange. We didn't eat much, but later I fixed tuna salad and we went for a drive along the beautiful Icicle Road (recommended …
Chris worked until check-out while I packed up, then we drove into town for a quick salad at Morelli's before leaving town. It took us roughly three hours to make the scenic drive to the Bavarian town of Leavenworth. We passed our lodging twice before calling and receiving the final detailed information on taking the dirt road to get to the inn. …
No apple strudel for breakfast. Odessa hadn't really woken up by the time we left. We called in at a fast food chain out of town that I won't mention because I promised Chris I wouldn't. Desperation will drive a man to act quite out of character. It was a fruitless visit and we left thirsty because the coffee machine WASN'T WORKING! Called in at a coffee/antique shop in Trinidad and ...
... the Wells Fargo Bank had to change their logo on the signage to conform to the local ordinances. Tons of bars, shops, restaurants, hotels, and wine tasting rooms make it a mecca for tourists and visitors who love the German cooking and beers. We did our share of sampling the authentic German cuisine and Washington wines.
The towering peaks that surround the town make you feel just like you are in the Alps if only for the day!

Historical Traveler Reviews Run of the River Leavenworth
We have been visiting Leavenworth for 20 years. How did we miss Run of the River? Well, actually, it took us until we became "empty nesters" to make this romantic discovery. This is rustic luxury at its finest. Visit the website! It will give you a great idea of the beauty of this lovey refuge. We were lucky to take advantage of a spring offering of 3 nights for the price of two. This was a real bargain! Monty is an extraordinary host! He even road his bike to the trailhead where we were hiking to leave us a note about an important phone call. The food is awesome, the suites are spectacular, the views are breathtaking, and the serenity is priceless. We can't wait for our return visit.

All We Could Have Asked For
We were taken to our suite and it was much more than I could have imagined. There was a huge log bed that you needed a step to get into, a river stone fireplace, a river stone Jacuzzi tub, and easy chairs for two. They gave us birdseed to put in the feeder on the wrap around private deck outside our suite so we could see all the wildlife and bird with a spectacular vies. We lacked for nothing, and felt as though we were the only people there. I am still showing their brochure to everyone I know.
The breakfasts were outstanding as was the service. I made reservations for our anniversary, as I will make them there for any excuse I can come up with.
This is the finest inn and certain a refuge for all to enjoy.
If you like the decor of mountain lodges & log homes, but also don't mind having that satellite TV and CD changer in your room, Run of the River has it. If you enjoy watching all kinds of wildlife, including innumerable bird species, deer playing around a creek, coyotes, and the occasional bear and bald eagle, but simply can't do without heated bathroom floors, jacuzzi tub, and fireplace in your room, well, they have that too. And if you love gorging on spectacular freshly prepared breakfasts filled with natural fruit and vegetable ingredients, and then working it all off riding a mountain bike provided by the inn, or hiking on local trails shared with you by the super-friendly owners, well, need I say more. We have chosen to stay at R of the R for our anniversary the past 2 years, and have already booked again for next year.
Relaxed at Run of the River, Leavenworth, WA
We truly had an outstanding stay at Run of the River. Lavish accomodations and a relaxing atmosphere were the highlights of our 3 days. Each morning we were spoiled with a hearty and delicious breakfast. We chose to burn some of the calories from breakfast on one of the many day hikes surrounding the town of Leavenworth. Monty Turner and the rest of the staff at Run of the River go out of their way to make your stay memorable. We had a wonderful time.
We stayed here for two nights, and it exceeded all our expectations. We had the Up the Creek suite, which was beautifully furnished with rustic, yet luxurious amenities. The giant log bed and its fabulous linens make you never want to get out of bed. The river rock fireplace and river rock-surrounded jacuzzi tub added such romantic and relaxing ambience to the room. The bathroom--with its heated slate floors, overhead shower, Burts Bees toiletries, and beautiful sink--is great. Then there are all the little details: birdseed to put on your own bird feeder on the balcony; the old-fashioned typewriter for bringing out the poet in you; the "star" decor above the TV armoire, complete with a candle to light at night, so that your entire room is bathed in "starlight"; your own backpack and walking stick for you to use on your explorations; Capresso grind-and-brew coffeemaker in your room, as well as teas and cocoa; mountain bikes for guests' use.
Most Excellent Refreshment
The folks at Run of the River Inn and Refuge just a mile from of Leavenworth, WA really know how to take care of us. My husband and I have stayed in many B&B's in the Idaho, Montana, WA and Oregon, and we vote that Run of the River is "thee premier B&B in the Northwest". They have thought of everything to make your stay comfortful, restful, refreshing and just plain fun!
Not to mention the outstanding food served each morning! Way to go Run of the River!
Run of the River by far tops any hotel and Bed and Breakfst I have heard of. The owners Monty and Karen take such pride in thier lodge it shows in the comfort. The rooms are all beautiful, spacious and relaxing. The view from every deck is breathtaking. Most of all our favorite was the homecooked breakfast by Monty every morning. We will reccommend this B and B to everyone we know as well as return there ourselves.
I had the surprising opportunity to visit Run of the River recently. I say surprising because everywhere I turned I was surprised and delighted with the attention to detail and incredible amenities they have. If you can think of it, you'll find it here. The innkeepers - Monty and Karen Turner - who in themselves are wonderful hosts - have not skimped and offer everything that you might ever want for a romantic or outdoor-oriented vacation.
So cozy, you won't want to leave your room...
Inn did justice to its web site - and more. Creativly loved by it's owners. Remarkable location and top shelf amenities. Private and quiet. Not a big fan of the communal breakfast, though all were very nice to meet. Can't say enough about the rooms and the gorgous views of the Cascade Mts. and Bavarian Leavenworth. Excellent - would stay again in a heartbeat!
