My husband and I were lucky because we decided to take a quick weekend getaway to Leavenworth from Seattle spontaneously - all the lodging for the area was booked but there happened to be one room available the night we needed it! (After speaking to the owner, there was a last minute cancellation) - Thankfully it worked out!
I spoke with Renee over the phone ( I believe the co-owner with her husband) and she was lovely and made the reservation for me -
When we arrived, I felt like I was whisked away to the country side - It was about a mile away from the downtown area - close enough for a quick 3 minute drive into the Bavarian village and far enough for a romantic, serene retreat.
-the entry way/driveway is magical! it's a long driveway lined with birch trees
-the grounds are extremely well-maintained the grass was lush & bright green/flowers planted abundantly - and the front entrance was literally just like a dream..never been to Germany, but I think its what it would look like living in the countryside...
-greeted by Becky (Renee's sister) when we arrived. very courteous & sweet. (dessert was offered in the evening upon arrival - cheesecake & coffee!
-loved the European feel & design of rooms
-our room was the almrosen and couldn't have been better. (fireplace that we used! although, its the summer - it was nice having the crackling fire in the evening...) amazing bedding & king-sized bed - jet tub & multi-shower heads in the shower..
-we used the hot tub in the evening and was able to soak it up among the stars
-breakfast was served in the morning by Becky -homemade banana bread with eggs caprice, fresh fruits, yogurt/oatmeal & morning breads with fresh coffee/ juice...my husband and I ate it out on the patio and just enjoyed the mountains and hills
-Sunday morning an elderly man also played the alpenhorn! that was a treat :)
This was my first bed & breakfast experience - although, I have nothing to base my review on - I truly believe the quality and experience was TOP NOTCH - the bar has been set HIGH....I would highly highly recommend Abendblume!!
