The Blackbird Lodge
Reviewed 24 March 2014

This small bed and breakfast in Leavenworth is very well run and in a great location. The staff spent lots of time with me explaining all the local activities and restaurants. They had recommendations from other guests to draw on too. The studio room was very big, well-equipped and with a great of snowy mountains outside. We would definitely return again!

The Blackbird Lodge is clean, quiet and near town center for exploring shops. It however does not provide maid service or common items such as shampoo or a refill on coffee packets, or tea for that matter. There were glasses to enjoy our evening beverage snd a few dishes should you need them. The only place to rinse them would be the bathroom sink? Our stay was a toss up because of these minor details. They fit in the "been there , done that" category for us.

Recently took the train from Seattle to Leavenworth, just as the holiday lights went up - a great time to visit here. The Blackbird Lodge is a short walk from the downtown area, right on the river and park. This was very convenient since we did not have a car. The lobby and guest lounge are nice and invititng with videos to rent and a free computer to use. They put out waffle-fixings in the morning, not much but fun and the coffee was good. I spoke with Ana several times before our visit and she and the rest of the staff were very nice and helpful at all times.
The room was great with a mini-frig, microwave and coffee maker. You can bring in deli-food or other goodies or enjoy one of the many, many good restaurants within easy walking distance. We liked the mexican place across the street and Kellers for dinner. Great food and service at both. Lots of window shopping and European inspired decor in this quaint little town in the mountains outside of Seattle.

Room Tip: The rooms in the front face the street but from the 3rd floor you can see the Holiday Lights downton...

The Blackbird Lodge was a boutique hotel prior to being taken over by Vacation Internationale (VI) Happy to say VI has kept the lodge true to it's original form. This is a great little place to stay as it is right in the heart of the beautiful Bavarian town of Leavenwort. The surounding moutains are spectacular.

Dies ist eine grosse ubernachtungsmoglichkeit wie is stimmt im herzen der schonen stadt von Leavenworth. Den umliegenden berge sind eindrucksvol. Haben sie spass und schlaf gut!!

My fiancé and I spent an evening at The Blackbird Lodge as a quick weekend getaway. The building itself is wonderful, right downtown and close to shopping and food. The room we were in was large and the bathroom had plenty of space, but that might all be due to us being in the Studio EZ room. The staff was nice, and they even had the football game on in the common room and allowed us to stay after we checked out to watch it.
The little things:
There was no shampoo in the bathroom, just 2 small bars of soap.
The parking lot is cramped and difficult to park in when you are the last vehicle there for the evening. If you have an option, bring a smaller car (we will when we make a summer trip here, we took the truck for possible poor pass conditions).
Small old television in the room. Not like you will be watching a lot of TV in a town like this, but it is still nice to have just in case.
They have an advertisement above the TV talking about movies in the lobby. And those movies are $4.00 each rentals. Thankfully there is wi-if in the room for Netflix on a mobile device.

Overall a pleasant stay and definitely somewhere I will be coming back to probably bring family/friends here for a catch-up vacation.

I have stayed at Blackbird lodge twice a year for the last four years. We go to Leavenworth in December and July every year. Leavenworth is a wonderful destination with something to do in each season. But you're not interested in the place, you want to hear about the hotel. The people are friendly and helpful and the rooms are very maintained. The best ones are on the 4th floors as they still have a great view of the river and mountains. The other rooms use to have a view but there's a new hotel being built in front of Blackbird which has stolen much of its pristine views. The free breakfast is really just waffles so if you like waffles, you're in luck. The location is perfect right in downtown Leavenworth. Perfect for wine tasting all afternoon and then a nice walk in the riverside park before dinner.

Room Tip: 4th floor as the best view

We enjoyed our stay, comfortable bed, plenty of room for two. We stayed in the studio, queen bed. Was hoping for a mountain view, but the front shops,shoppers were relaxing to watch. Construction on other side of building, but did not bother us. Had small kitchen, dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator. We enjoyed the padded window seat. Friendly service. We did not get up in time for the breakfast, time could be extended for late sleepers, Coffee should be made available during the day instead of only during the waffle/fruit cup breakfast, which ended at 0900. There is a small coffee pot/coffee for one pot in the room. They should at least offer coffee for one pot each morning of your stay! We stayed two nights. As an update, the note slipped under the door the evening before departure does not request garbage to be taken out. Maybe they listened to the previous complaints? Prices are on the higher end, but it is mostly a time share, renting a few rooms out at special rates, which we took advantage of. Convenient location within walking distance to main shops, river hiking trail. Nice group balcony with beautiful mountain, river view!
