We almost didn't get on the road this morning - turned the key and the motorhome wouldn't start! Luckily, we got going early enough in the morning that it gave Greg time to figure out that it was the battery, he got it jumped, and we found a new one in Monroe, went over and bought it and installed it, and we were on the road by Noon!
Nothing special at this park, just an overnight stop on our way...
Day 10: 1645 miles
After my lovely stay in Vancouver (thanks again, Eric!), I headed south to Cle Elum, a small town (~2,000 people) west of Ellensburg, to visit my Davis friend, Virginia. She's one of those lovely friends with whom, even if you haven't seen them in ages, you can pick right up where you left off. She lives in a beautiful, light-filled home on 7 acres, right off the Teanaway River, with this heavenly view right outside ...
... changing and changing, never constant... Something I would need time to get used to for sure.
When I am getting into Seattle I have to book my bed for the night last minute... What can you do if there is no wifi access on the train and the phone doesn't have service? Not my fault. Some hostel will take me in and provide me with a hot shower soon!
... to make up any combination if we didn’t see what we wanted. They were delicious and the perfect refreshment for a warm day.
We were both really happy that we had come back to ride the trail, it is lovely and we will probably revisit it whenever we pass through Wenatchee but now it was really time to head home.
... open through Oktoberfest but mentioned that they also book up early in the season so we may not be quite so lucky in the future to find a site on the river.
It was a lovely evening with the sound of the river lulling us to sleep.

Historical Traveler Reviews Enzian Inn Leavenworth
VIP Suite Review at the Enziann
My husband and I recieved a gift certificate for the Enzian as a wedding gift.. we were trying to book the bridal suite but it was unavailable until late January.. we chose to stay in the VIP room since it was available sooner.. it was a beautiful room. Our only complaint was, the VIP room is on the third floor.. the restaurant/breakfast area is on the 4th floor.. we were awakened at 4AM by people running back and forth on the celing and stomping.. and it became worse around 7AM and later stopped in the afternoon.Neigbors walking up and down the hall were a little on the noisy side as well.. We hadn't experienced disruptions like that at other hotels we have stayed at in the past. Other than missing out on some sleep we had a wonderful time in a very beautiful room.
Our first experience in Leavenworth was at a different motel. The next year a friend of my husband highly recommended the Enzian. So that t year my husband made surprise reservations for me, and of all rooms he reserved the Bridal Suite. We were truly in awe. The room had a beautiful king sized bed with individual comforters, a jucuzzi, fireplace and sliding doors that lead to the patio, which overlooked the pool. The breakfast is absolutely the best, even my husband get's full! Across the street from the Enzian is their, beautiful, 18 hole putting course, which is an absolute blast. The Enzian sits, only, a couple of minutes from town. It is the only place we have stayed since, or will stay wwhen visiting Leavenworth. The Leavenworth experience, to us, is not complete unless you stay at the Enzian.
Don't go anywhere else!!!
I have been going to the Enzian since I was a little kid. I am now 27 and still make it a point to go at least once a year. The Facilities are always clean and the service is 5 star!!!
WE have stayed elsewhere in Leavenworth. The Enzian is the best! WE love the seranade in the morning and the great people who work there.
You cannot beat the setting for a real romantic evening. The Tower or VIP suites are the only way to go. Do it in the winter for greater ambiance. The breakfast on the rooftop is tops...no pun intended. We'll be back.
The Enzian is the best. We have been staying there for 14 years. It is the cleanest, nicest place in Leavenworth. It is probably the most expensive, but worth every penny. We won't stay anywhere else.
Enzion is a great hotel! The indoor and outdoor pools are great. Enzion is just minutes away from town,while walking, and it has a great lobby and when Mr. Johnson plays in the morning at breakfest it music to my ears!
The Enzian is simply the best place to stay in all of Leavenworth!I've visitited the town every year for nearly 20 years now. For the last 11 years, I've stayed at the Enzian and I will definitely stay there again.Pros:- Beautifully appointed rooms (from the smallest to the largest) with handcrafted furniture and warm duvet covers- Free buffet breakfasts with a stunning view- Fantastic lobby with nightly pianist, cider, and coffee, games, books, and a large fireplace- Indoor and outdoor pool and hot tub- Indoor basketball/raquetball court- Exercise room- Table-tennis room- Spectacular suites (see below)- Friendly owners (if you have a chance, chat with Mr. Johnson or his son... great people)- Cons:- Price is a bit high, but great value- Rooms are very hard to book, plan aheadThe Tower Suite:Normally when I stay at the Enzian, I get a regular room, which is always clean, quiet, and nicely appointed. In 2003, I had the pleasure of staying in the Tower Suite, the largest and most expensive suite at the Inn. I highly recommend it!First, it's large. There is a main room that is the size of most of the rooms at the Enzian. It houses the entry way, the cabinetry, one television, the bed, and a sitting area. A door from the main room leads out onto a private balcony looking onto the pool area, with a view of the mountains. The sitting area has a small table with a bottle of (non-alcoholic) Sparkling Cider and two champagne glasses... complimentary. The main room also has a vanity area, with a sink, large mirrors, a coffee maker, glasses, etc.Off the vanity area is the bathroom. It is all done in European tilework. A freestanding sink, toilet, bidet and a large two-headed shower complete the room.Off the main room, through a pair of French doors, is the sitting room. (There is also a door to the bathroom here). This room has a large leather loveseat with a TV and VCR on one end. In the middle is a full-size murphy bed that pulls out of the wall for larger groups. At the far end is a round sitting area witha. Oh, and did I forget to mention that in the middle is a large soaking tub! Bath salts, comfy robes and soaps are all provided!It's the BEST romantic getaway. Very quiet, very nice.A great place for families, friends, lovers, you!
Always warm, always first rate, always clean and great pool!
Always a great experience.
We have visited the Enzian every October for the last five years and our experience each time has been tremendous. The rooms are always clean and very comfortable. The employees are friendly and courteous. The complimentary breakfast is outstanding. The overall experience is well worth the money.
