“Great place for all types of visitors”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 December 2009

My wife and I first stayed at Haus Rohrbach over Labor Day weekend in 2002. We mountain biked all over, stayed in two of the suites, and had a great first impression of Haus Rohrbach. Since then we've been back with our family 3 times, once in the summer, once in the fall and most recently, in December. Each time was very enjoyable. The main floor area with all types of beverages, games, books, tables, chairs and couches is a perfect lounge for relaxing, visiting, playing games and snacking. We've brought our own snacks in and they have no problem with that. We usually get desserts too. Sometimes they've charged us, other times they've comped the desserts. I assume that may depend on how they're doing financially. Shoot, don't we all do the same with our own customers? Sometimes are the right times for gifts, and other times we charge fairly for the services we provide. Haus Rohrbach provides great service. It really is a family place. The only people I can imagine not liking it are the uptight yuppie d.i.n.k. types. It's a European-style pension, not the Hyatt. Enjoy it for what it is, and it is very enjoyable. I like it much better than the average bed and breakfast -- because it is somewhat larger than most B&Bs, it seems to be run more professionally -- you can be left alone if you want to, or hang in the great room and visit with the owners if you like. It's certainly easier to be left alone than most B&Bs I've been to. Very clean, good service, fair pricing, I really can't find anything negative to say about this place. Having been there 4 times, it now feels almost like you are going over to a friends house for a visit. We love this place.

We have been coming here for years, with kids and without, and this is the best place in town. Quiet, beautiful and warm in the summer. The walk to town is easy in all but Winter, when snow is on the ground. Mike and Carol are great hosts, the food is delicious, and the rooms are cozy. For the idiots that are expecting a Westin........don't come here. Don't bring your bratty kids who need to be entertained either. That's why it is called a bed and breakfast. There are no TV's or other distractions. Just the peaceful countryside. The hill behind the Pension is a great hike. The pool is perfect for a quick dip, and there is also a jacuzzi. I think the negative reviews are bogus, they must be from the competitors in town. I have stayed at Haus Rohrbach over 20 times and never had a bad experience.

We had a great time. We needed to get away to the snow for a long weekend with our 6 week old and an almost 3 year old. It was great to have the big common room downstairs so we could put our son down for a nap in our room, turn on our monitor, and go down to sit and relax, read, take in the view, or play games. The breakfast in the mornings were excellent, and the dessert was well worth the couple extra dollars they ask for; much better quality then you'd get at any restaurant in town, and definitely cheaper. Our 2 year old had a great time on the front hill sledding. The room was very clean and comfortable. All it all, the Haus Rohrbach is somewhere we hope to visit again. (we're extremely glad we didn't listen to the negitive reviews, our visit proved them wrong!)

We were a bit concerned after reading some reviews before going there. But I have to say that it was a great experience, and that we'd love to go there again in different seasons. We stayed there during the IceFest. We went there with a 15-month old baby boy. What a wonderful experience we had. The place is very family-oriented. The hosts were very nice and helpful. They prepared a highchair for our baby without us even asking. They're very accommodating. Not only the hosts were nice & friendly, but also were other guests we met. Many of them told us that they have come to this B&B for years!

We stayed in the Meadow room, which shared a bath with one other room. but we didn't have trouble with that at all. The bathroom was very clean. We loved that there's no TV or radio in the room :) Guests often gathered around the dining area. There's a beautiful view from the lodge. There's also a nice little hill (but very long) that guests can play sleigh.

The only drawback of this B&B is its location. It's about a mile from downtown. So, there's quite a long walk to shops&restaurants (if you don't want to drive).


We would definitely recommend this B&B to our friends and others.

We arrived and were greeted by the sister/co-owner who immediately mentioned she was making dessert later and asked us to join her for it in a few hours. Since we have sayed here years before and the owners wife mentioned a long time ago that dessert is a seperate charge we knew this going in. The sister never mentioned the fee and we know it is posted away from the kitchen ( where the dessert is served) and over by the kids play room that in small faded writing, dessert is about $4.00 added on to your tab after your stay. Surprise! Well after we lingered in the seating / check in area later that afternoon we watched the co-owner offer this dessert to many arrivals and never once mention the charge, just smiled as if it was part of the b&b service. We headed to our very outdated room, blue , stained carpet. 2 bottles of water when 3 of us were booked in the room, and no more truffles, which they used to have in each room. The morning of breakfast, which typically are dutch babies the husband/co-owner Mike who has a week job was not in the serving mood. He looked like he just got out of bed and was exhasted. He wasn't friendly nor accomidating.If anything was asked of him other than what his helpers served he just said "ok" and handed it over. Sorry to put you out! We won't be staying here again , more money needs to be put BACK into the B&B and service needs to be revamped to owners who aren't burnt out or looking for a few extra side dollars. Change the carpet, the hard beds and the attitude and we'd consider staying again.

Some friends had recommended the Haus Rohrbach for a relaxing romantic getaway for my husband & I. Although it is a kid friendly place, it does not have TV and might be boring for those that want it. After reading one review that stated how bad the "Wildflower" suite was, I became a little nervous. But the room was beautiful! I could not have asked for more - although my husband would have preferred a TV for football! Carol and her sister Linda (who run the place), were terrific-very friendly and easy to be with. The food was fabulous! My husband did get upset because the entrance & driveway are not plowed, and our little sportscar had a great deal of difficulty in the snow & ice, getting up the hill, around the curve & into their driveway! If you have a 4x4, you shouldn't have any trouble though. This beautiful place is about a 1 1/2 miles from the town, very quiet and wonderful!

We stayed at Haus Rohrbach on a short visit to Leavenworth to go rafting. Though we prefer the Sleeping Lady, the Haus Rohrbach is a good value and a much better choice than the chain-type motels in the village.

On checking in, we did notice that the interiors were a bit worn, but everything was very clean and the people were friendly. We stayed in two top floor rooms that shared a small balcony from which a beautiful view of the valley could be seen. The rooms were comfortable and clean as was the shared bathroom. On the way up to our rooms I did notice that a few of the rooms which faced the parking lot were indeed darker and dated in their furnishings.

Though the house was full we did not see or hear anyone until breakfast time. The breakfast was good - tasty french toast, homemade jams, fruit, sausages, coffee, juice....the kitchen always had a coffee and tea bar open, along with hot chocolate. There is a small pool and a jacuzzi amid a landscape of flowers.

Haus Rohrbach reminded me very much of a typical pensione that one would stay in as they traveled through Switzerland and Austria. It may not be what the usual american tourist is used to, but for comfort, service, and natural beauty it is an excellent choice.
