This Bavarian Themed Hotel In Washington Will Steal Your Heart
Leavenworth is Washington’s charming Bavarian village, and every building in town fits the theme. That means staying at a hotel here is a unique, European experience all on its own, especially when you rest your head at the Enzian Inn. Between all the traditional amenities and the morning alphorn performance, you’ll swear you’re in the Bavarian Alps.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
The Enzian Inn sits right on Highway 2, just across the street from Leavenworth's downtown area.
It's owned by the Johnson family, who built the property in the early 1980s and never stopped expanding.
The property is gorgeous, and bing surrounded by beautiful mountains doesn't hurt.
Leavenworth has become an iconic part of the Pacific Northwest, and the Enzian has played a big role.
The guest rooms and suites here are magnificent, each one decked out in old-world elegance.
All rooms have down comforters with duvets, and they all feature hand-painted or hand-carved imported Austrian furnishings.
One of the best parts of staying at the Enzian Inn is the full buffet breakfast that will greet you each morning of your stay...
...but nothing quite beats waking up to this.
Every morning, you'll be treated to a short alphorn performance that lets you know breakfast is ready. The alphorn is a Swiss instrument is often seen (and heard) in the mountains of Europe. In 1984, a local (but Swiss-born) logger showed owner Bob Johnson how to play it, and the rest is history.
Other amenities include an indoor and an outdoor pool, hot tubs, free wireless internet, and free parking.
Hotel guests can even enjoy complimentary putting at their 18 Hole Championship Putting Course, Enzian Falls.
Staying at this beautiful hotel really feels like you're a guest at a relative's beautiful Bavarian mansion.
It's spacious, yet cozy, and you're always welcome to relax in the common areas.
Rates vary depending on the season and Leavenworth's local festivals and events, but you can typically rent a standard Queen room here for around $150 per night.
That's not a bad price when you consider all the amenities you'll receive.
As you can imagine, rooms at the Enzian Inn sell out fast. Make your reservations
here, then get ready to fall in love with Leavenworth.
