I've visted Leavenworth quite a few times now and the Mountain Home Lodge is far and above the competition for lodging in town. I just got back from a two night stay in the Ponder Rock cabin and during the drive home my fiance and I were already disccussing when the next trip back will be.
No other hotel or lodge I've stayed at in Leavenworth, or anywhere, has been as friendly as Brad and Kathy were at the lodge. Everything that is done at the lodge seems to give the sense of not being just a guest, but being a welcome friend. The service is without flaw, top notch. We even had a friendly tour guide lead us on a hike through the woods (Millie the dog)
Dinner was wonderful, I did regret however only making a reservation for the first night. One the second night I tried a resturant in town that I had eaten at before and was unpleasently surprised to find that reduction in menu prices was reflected in the reduction of food quality. The best way I could think of to describe how the dinner was compare it to a recent meal I had at Ruth Chris( an expensive but well worth it resturant). Basically the food is as good as the meal served to me at Ruth Chris, only there was more food, better service, and it cost less.
The cabin we stayed at was wonderful. The perfect amount of space, the jetted bath tub and the oversized shower where great. The bed was comfortable, and the room had a small audio set up that was playing some classical music when Brad showed us to our cabin (very classy). However, I feel that while the dinner and room we more than expected, it was the staff and their hospitality that truly set the Mountain Home Lodge apart from any place else I've ever stayed.
I think that the only question truly needing to be answered by a review is, would they ever return and stay again. For me, the answer is yes.
