Nestled in the heart of the Cascade Mountains, just one half mile upstream from the charming Bavarian town of Leavenworth, WA, Run of the River Inn & Refuge has been known as the place for romance, charm and friendly, caring service since 1986.  The inn has been the recipient of some of the industry’s highest accolades and is the ideal location for unsurpassed comfort and relaxation.

Inspired by nature, blending rustic charm with modern luxury, the inn offers an intimate, tranquil and romantic atmosphere.  The secluded lodging is surrounded on two sides by a wildlife refuge that is home to fish, deer, coyote, otters, and the occasional bear and bobcat.  The refuge is a year-round birder's paradise, where guests regularly spy great blue heron, eagles, osprey, owls, kingfishers, geese, ducks and a plethora of migrating and backyard feeder birds. 

Built with the comfort and enjoyment of our guests in mind, the well appointed Adventure Suites and Ravenwood Lodge feature cozy fireplaces and large spa tubs.  All suites enjoy panoramic views and are complimented by private entrances and covered decks with plenty of space for relaxing outdoors.  The original art, handcrafted furnishings and special luxurious touches have been selected to create a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere.  To see a complete list of in-room amenities, click here.

Guests can relax in the fresh, clean air of the Icicle Valley or take advantage of the many exciting outdoor adventures that are available.  A paradise for outdoor enthusiasts, our staff is always ready to offer tips and share information about the best spots for hiking, biking, fishing, rafting, skiing, snowshoeing and much, much more.  Complimentary mountain bikes, snowshoes, backpacks, walking sticks and picnic baskets are available for all of our guests – and we are happy to help with additional trip planning and Itineraries within Washington State.

Run of the River Inn and Refuge is favorite spot for honeymoon, anniversary and birthday celebrations and offers plenty of space for small retreats, family gatherings, intimate weddings, elopements and vow renewals.

The inn and grounds are smoke-free and for adult guests (18 years and older) only. We love pets and understand that they are very much a part of the family however; we are unable to offer over night accommodations for these family members. We do offer off property shelter and premium care, at Haus Denali Kennels for an additional fee. www.hausdenalikennels.com
