“A little slice of heaven”
Reviewed 24 August 2013 via mobile

My husband and I booked 2 nights at Run of the River to celebrate our wedding anniversary. There were some unexpected stressful events that took place the day we were supposed to check in and I thought maybe the wonderful weekend we had planned wouldn't be so wonderful, but I was so wrong. It was even better than I imagined it would be. Within the first 1/2 hour we were at Run of the River, our stress level dropped like a rock and we were breathing again. Everything about the inn is meant to provide a happy and peaceful experience and we totally loved it! The breakfast's were out of this world! We may have to do this every year to celebarate our future anniversaries.

We had a fabulous visit to this B&B! We were there for 2 nights and could have stayed longer. The service was excellent, the breakfast was excellent, the accommodations were excellent, the atmosphere was perfect, and I can't say enough about this place. I would definitely stay there when visiting this sweet, little "slice of life" in that part of the country. Thanks for making us feel like we were at home, and for the little special touches that your inn offered us.

Room Tip: We were in the Fishmonger room and would choose that again no doubt.

We adored "Run of the River" and it was a shame we could only stay 2 nights. Whilst Leavenworth was not really our cup of tea, this beautiful lodge was perfect in every way. Our suite was stunning and the amount of thought and detail, which made it special and individual was wonderful. We will treasure our memories of sitting watching "Ricky the Racoon" play on our deck without realising that whilst wew had been concentrating on him so avidly, a very large deer had been stannding immediately behind watching us! It was quite magical. Breakfast was vast but of stunning quality and all the staff were so very very pleasant, including the lovely receptionsist who fell in love with my husband's accent. I cannot fault this lodge in any way. Thank you for making our last 2 days in teh US very specail.

My husband and I stayed here to celebrate our 17th anniversary. Really, words cannot express what an amazing place this is to stay at. Their attention to detail and their truly incredible breakfasts are something out of your imagination. As busy parents of an athletic boy, this was one way to ensure that we actually had time to sit and just "be". Be relaxed, be in love, be accepting of nature and be filled to the brim with incredible food. We stayed in the Great Northwest room. I highly recommend this room as it has three entrances (two of them private). Trek and Kona bikes are provided (with helmets and locks), DVD's to borrow from the River Room (great room) that you can enjoy in your room, coffee/tea service with a yummy treat each night. Breakfasts? Oh my... yesterday morning's breakfast was mango/peach yogurt, grapefruit/orange/banana juice, fresh cantaloupe/kiwi/pineapple/watermelon/grapes/strawberries, sticky bun French toast with pecans and "Sunday Scramble" (eggs, peppers, zucchini, cheese, cherry tomatoes, ham and onions. Served with fresh pico. Coffee was amazing, too. If you have a special occasion, or just need a weekend in heaven, I highly recommend this place!

My husband Ron and I chose the Run Of The River for an intimate celebration of our 31 years together.

Upon our arrival we were greated as friends other than guests, giving us this warm special welcoming. Kelley was very kind and informative on our suite and activities we had planned for the weekend.

We booked the Kingfisher Suite for the weekend, and so very happy we did. The room is amazing with such attention to detail one has no reason to leave if choosing to stay other then venturing out. The covered deck is very spacious and we found our refuge on the big swing that sits in the middle. We quickly discovered that we enjoyed sitting there so much that our time was mostly spent right there. The deck has a wonderful calming view, the Icicle River with the beautiful trees and rugged mountains is breath taking alone. The first day from that very spot we were entertained by deer with their babies, black bear, bob cat, racoon with babies, ducks, and blue heron.

The breakfasts a 5 Star! I promise they will keep you full til dinner!! You won't be disappointed
as the freshness and quality is top notch!!

Wonderful beautiful Fanny! She is the inns family dog. She is loving and beautiful.

I would like to say a special thank you to Jan and Steve for a wonderful unforgettable weekend for my husband Ron and I. The Run Of The River truly is a place of refuge. I know that the two of us found it the moment we arrived. Looking forward to our next visit!

Love,

From the moment we arrived we exhaled. So peaceful and such amazing attention to detail. From the handwritten welcome note to the bubbles on the porch outfitted with a swing for two and visits from humming birds and chipmunks . Down below on the river a mother raccoon teaching her three kittens how to cross the river, a deer family, baby ducks.... You get the idea! Can't wait to come back, oh and the breakfast they serve every morning is Devine.

After 4 days with the extended family in Seattle, we needed a break (lol)! We couldn't have picked a more perfect place. From the warm welcome until our departure, the Run on the River met all our needs. We encountered a ferocious heat wave for our entire stay and the AC was 5 star fabulous. The breakfast was so over the top. We did not have to eat again until evening. We did white water rafting with Osprey, a great way to beat the heat. We can't wait to return to this wonderful B & B

Room Tip: All the suites are awesome. The Ravenswood cabin is spectacular with privacy, 2 hot tubs, a gourmet...
