No matter what time of year you visit, we are sure you will find enjoyment in Leavenworth, WA and the beautiful Icicle Valley.
Break out the bikes, the hiking boots and golf clubs — spring and summer offer perfect days and soft, breezy nights. Deer and other wildlife abound on the property during this time of year, so have your camera nearby. In spring, early wildflowers bloom, apple trees bulge with buds and the sky is a brilliant blue. Come summer, warm weather activities and events are in full swing – including our wonderful outdoor musical theater.
The colorful foliage is stunning in the crisp, autumn days that grace the Icicle Valley. Newly fallen snow often caps the very crest of the mountains, creating a newly painted masterpiece of rugged beauty. Trees, with brightly colored leaves, line the quietly meandering rivers and creeks, yawning in preparation of the sleepy winter days ahead. At the inn, seasonal accents and hundreds of locally grown pumpkins, transform the inn into a warm and welcoming showplace.
Amid falling snow and frosty air, the holiday season brings with it, a peaceful winter wonderland that blankets the inn. Famous for our holiday décor, Run of the River has been featured on "Northwest Backroads" for our Holiday charm – click here to watch the video.) Sit back with a cup of spiced cider and watch the snow fall and drifts lazily over Icicle Ridge. The town of Leavenworth is at its finest and sleigh rides, music, holiday lights, Gluhwein and caroling help make the season most memorable.

Complimentary use of Redfeather snowshoes provides outstanding winter recreation along breathtaking scenic trails throughout the Icicle Valley. After a day of skiing, you will welcome a candlelit soak in your suite’s spa tub, which is perfectly sized for sharing.
