We arrived at this lovely inn to find it adorned in fall's harvest, beautifully decorated. It is situated on private, forested property with the Cascade Mountains as a backdrop. Simply beautiful. And, it's teaming with wildlife. We saw deer, birds, chipmunks and understand bears visit too. Upon entering the inn, it made me smile. It's so warm and inviting. Just... More

This is our fourth visit to Run of the River. Such a relaxing spot with spectacular views right off your deck. Rooms are spacious with every amenity. Mountain bikes are even provided...we bring our own...but nice to know they have good bikes available. Breakfast is a gourmet delight...and my spouse is a gourmet cook, so I should know...ha.
