Waterfront Park offers everything you want from a trip to Washington. Quiet trails, beautiful views and laid-back leisure are at your fingertips in this Leavenworth haven. Better yet, you’ll return from all-American hikes to a Bavarian-themed town with all the steins, strudel, and scenery you want. Embrace the Alpine attitude of Leavenworth when you stay at these hotels near Waterfront Park, bookable on Culture Trip.

1. Alpine Rivers Inn

If your idea of a holiday is slapping on some lederhosen and guzzling back steins of Germany’s finest draughts, the Alpine Rivers Inn is your kind of place. Pouring an endless stream of relaxation just outside the center of Leavenworth, it has a steamy outdoor hot tub with riverside views to be enjoyed year-round. After a night of merry-making, a hearty complimentary breakfast of sausage, gravy and biscuits should help put some shine on that early morning rise.

2. Bavarian Lodge

Let Bavarian Lodge be the first to say wilkommen to Leavenworth. Village-view rooms with lodge-style amenities such as fireplaces and private balconies will fill you with fuzzy, folksy joy when the snow begins to fall. No matter the season though, the hotel’s Woodsman micropub is a cozy place to sip beer and take a few small bites. For more Alpine amusement, the Leavenworth Nutcracker Museum and the Leavenworth Festhalle are within walking distance.

3. Alpen Dorf Pension

The Alpen Dorf Pension has such a homely feel that it’s hard to believe it’s an inn. Only three suites sit atop the third floor, giving you the option of either a private balcony, park view, or jetted tub. Whichever you opt for, you’ll find that the standard room set-up – which includes coffee makers, a kitchenette and a fireplace – will make you feel at home. After a day hiking the Cascades, forgo the self-catering and head downstairs for a grilled cheese and bowl of rich tomato soup.

4. WorldMark Leavenworth

Give the family a Bavarian-style holiday without getting your passport stamped at WorldMark Leavenworth. This two-bedroom suite sleeps six, though the kids will want to spend all of their time outdoors. Follow the Wenatchee River as it carves through a town filled with cuckoo clocks, bier gartens and lederhosen before returning to Enchantment Park – its sports fields, playground and skate park are right outside your door. Icicle Village minigolf is also just a short putt across the street.

5. Enzian Inn

The crisp mountain air and Alpine-themed accommodation will trick you into thinking that Enzian Inn is closer to Switzerland than Seattle. The imported Austrian furnishings, Alphorn music and European hospitality are simply wunderbar, as is a stroll through the village, where you’ll fall in love with the serene views and Bavarian-style architecture. If you’re one to fit a round of golf into your holiday, a miniature course is right across the street.

6. Obertal Inn

You’ll come for the Cascades views but stay for the strudel at Obertal Inn. Summer, winter, fall or spring, there’s no season that’s not improved by freshly baked apple strudel for breakfast, topped with home-made crème anglaise and vanilla caramel sauce. We know we should probably spend more time talking up the Obertal’s fireplaces, jacuzzis, and king suite balconies, but trust us – the moment you put that warm, flaky, sugar-dusted pastry to your lips, you won’t be able to get it out of your head either.

7. LOGE Leavenworth Downtown

There are two branches of LOGE in Leavenworth – the Riverside sets a more mellow mood, while the LOGE Downtown is a younger, hipper affair. Sink pints in its beer garden, and you’ll make friends in no time. Get a group together and borrow a couple of the hotel’s Raleigh city cruiser bikes, or rent other outdoorsy gear such as mountain bikes, paddleboards or river tubes for a day of fun in the sun.

8. Storybook Riverside Inn

Bed and Breakfast

An adults-only B&B with a complimentary bottle of wine at check-in? It’s not a fairytale, it’s the norm at Storybook Riverside Inn. River and mountain views surround this manor which offers a mere four suites, ensuring every couple can live out their kid-free fantasy. There’s no need to move from the wood-burning fireplace in your suite, unless of course you fancy another bottle or two of wine. If so, Visconti’s, one block away, has the vino you need.
