Since we didn't have family visiting us for Christmas and weren't traveling to see family, my wife and I decided to spend Christmas in Leavenworth, WA. We've visited Leavenworth, the congenial Barvarian-themed small town in the Cascade Mountains of Washington, many times but never in winter. After reviewing hotels and talking with friends who had stayed there, we decided upon the Enzian Inn. It was marvelous! The decor is beautiful (especially when decorated for Christmas), the staff treats you like welcome members of the family and the hotel amenities are wonderful. The breakfast buffet is sumptuous and the view from the breakfast room of the surrounding mountains is breathtaking, especially when accompanied by the owner playing his alphorn from the balcony. The outdoor pool and hot tub were open but we didn't use them due to the cold weather. However, we did take advantage of the large indoor pool and hot tub, which were great. The atmosphere was truly relaxing and it was the ideal Christmas setting with snow on the surrounding evergreens, logs burning brightly in the fireplace and the singing of Christmas carols each evening in the lobby accompanied by a baby grand piano. My only suggestion to management would be to provide an in-room coffee maker but there was always coffee available in the lobby. We had great expectations and they were greatly exceeded. We are already talking about making this a Christmas tradition for our family.
