LEAVENWORTH’S HISTORY (REAL QUICK!)
It’s cute. It’s quaint. It’s manufactured. Huh? Yep! There’s a great story behind the small Bavarian village at the foot of the Cascade Mountains.
Once upon a time, Leavenworth, WA was a logging town that was failing. As the jobs left and economy fell, the town hired a PR firm to save it from turning into a ghost town. They all worked together, refaced most of the buildings with stereotypical Bavarian façades, added lots of fun character touches, changed many business approaches and created a new destination: Little Bavaria. It’s amazing. The town is adorable and had you not known the history, you might think that it was historically an actual Bavarian settlement.

Between them, they brought a broad range of professional, academic, and life experiences to the venue. These include tech development and design, fine arts, music, parenthood, meditation instruction/Buddhist chaplaincy, environmental and sustainability education, mindful running, and professional Integral Coaching.

We offer four cozy, distinctive, themed bedrooms, each with attached full private bathrooms, keyed entry, cliff and garden views, and a communal kitchen waiting downstairs for you to brew fresh ground coffee or tea, or prepare your favorite breakfast, all on your own schedule.
