ROR-DroneAfternoon with water-50 skinny

Greetings gentle guest,


We would like to thank you, and all of our gentle guests for your support of Run of the River Inn & Refuge, over the past 30 years. The loyalty that many of you have shown, even during the recent more trying years, has been humbling. We are pleased to share with you that in spite of all the craziness, 2021 was our best year ever, and that is saying a lot. This among other things, makes this message all the harder.


After much discussion and deliberation, Steve and I have decided to close Run of the River Inn & Refuge. Effective March 7th, 2022, we will no longer be taking reservations, or offering lodging on this property. It will become a private residence.


For those of you who have an outstanding reservation for which a deposit has been taken, a refund for that amount will be credited to the card used for that reservation. Those of you who have a “Hold” on requested dates without a deposit; your hold will be cancelled.


For those of you who are holding a Gift Certificate, please send the physical certificate to:

Run of the River,
PO Box 285
Leavenworth WA 98826

PLEASE include the following on the back side of the certificate: your name, address, telephone number and an email address where you can be reached, should we have questions. Gift Certificate MUST be returned by June 30, 2022. A check equal to the amount of the remaining credit on the certificate will be issued and mailed to the included address.


We have such a loyal following. We know there will be a lot of disappointment. Unfortunately, as hard as we tried to make this easy for everyone, there was no perfect time to make this announcement.

We hope we have been successful in our goals to offer a unique respite, “Nourishing Body and Soul in the Heart of the Cascades”. We wish you peace and joy, and thank you for your patronage.

If you would like to contact us, you may email us at



Warmest regards,

Jan & Steve Bollinger, Innkeepers
