My wife first found Run of the River by doing a random search online for B&Bs in the state of Washington. The website provided a lot of useful information and the pictures were inviting. We have since been back to RotR a few times. We have stayed in Ravenwood, and a couple of the rooms in the main building. The...

We have stayed at the Run of the River 4 or 5 times now with December being our favorite time of year (although I'm sure every season has something special to offer). Everything about this place is magical- just pulling down the tree lined driveway sets the tone and our excitement builds. We have always had a warm welcome and...

The Innkeeper of Run of the River is a wonderful women by the name of Jan. She has such an incredible eye for detail! Everything in our cabin was perfect, right down to the mattress and bedding. We aren't much for bird watching, but we certainly found ourselves enjoying the binoculars and the bird food immensely! Our elopement in the...

The first time I stayed at Run of the River it was a truly enchanting experience. It was very expensive, but that was to be expected. It had been such a wonderful visit that I planned to make it a yearly vacation spot, which I followed through with by booking three nights for this current winter season. Sadly, my fiance...

We have tried for 8 years straight to reserve a room at this incredible B & B after first just stopping by to "look." (Why 8 years--because all of the guests keep coming back every year!) We just concluded a two night stay at this magical place. Everything about this B & B is exquisite. We have traveled all over...

This is a fantastic gem nestled in the woods on a spur of the Icicle river. Each room is a unique rustic cabin experience. The breakfast is a 5 course treat for your pallet. The staff is friendly and helpful. You won't regret taking some time out of your busy schedule to unwind and refresh.

We arrived late on Thursday night. It was rainy and dark and we were glad to make it to the Lodge. When we entered our room, we were pleasantly surprised by the accommodations!

We have gone to Run of the River for 7 years in a row. We find this to be a most relaxing refuge in a beautiful location. It's close to town and other places of interest, but also away from the noise of the town, etc. Completely quiet at night. The breakfasts are outstanding and special. Jan and her staff...
