Leavenworth... Home Away From Home

Leavenworth, Washington, is where "old world" hospitality meets western "come as you are" casualness. Choices range from highly rated inns and hotels, to cozy bed and breakfasts. On a budget this year? (And aren't we all?) Leavenworth offers budget chain options, as well as small family owned motor inns for your stay.

To be in the thick of the many festivals throughout the year, stay in one of the many suites located right on Front Street over the bustling businesses and restaurants lining Leavenworth's main commercial district. Several of the storefronts have cozy guest suites overlooking the main thoroughfare.

Want to get out of the hustle and bustle after a busy day of shopping, people watching and just generally enjoying the sights, sounds and tastes of Leavenworth? A rental cabin or house on the outskirts of town or further away in Plain or along the Wenatchee River may be just what you're looking for.

One of our favorite places to stay is Enzian Inn. Owned and operated by the Johnson family for more than 25 years, Enzian Inn a delightful home away from home for many regular and returning guests. Rooms are delightfully appointed with old world style. Beds are made up with eiderdown and many rooms feature fireplaces. An expansive breakfast buffet is served in the 4th floor Continental Room and includes homemade pastries and made-to-order omelets. Guests are treated to Alphorn concerts twice each morning.

Leavenworth visitors who want to make the village their homebase for outdoor sports and recreation summer or winter, may want to check out the many condominiums offered for rent throughout the year.

Regardless of your particular taste, Leavenworth offers a wide variety of lodging options. Stay one night or for a week or more. But, by all means, stay and play in Leavenworth.
