The Leavenworth Inn is an attractive, inviting home sitting on a bluff high above the Ohio River. My partner and I visited the Inn using a Living Social discount and were very impressed with our accommodations. We stayed in the second-floor English Rose room, which offers a fantastic view of the River. The very spacious room was well-appointed and featured a large, flat-screen TV and DVD. The bathroom was also well-sized; I got the impression that the Inn uses local soaps, which smelled nice.
Although there were several guests the night that we visited, everyone that we encountered seemed comfortable. The owner and her staff were friendly and full of useful information about the area. The common areas, including a sitting parlor, dining area, kitchen and den were very spacious and clean. I noticed that a few couples were sitting together in the main area and enjoying a movie from the expansive DVD collection. The Inn makes excellent use of its property, with three additional lodging cottages, paved trails for biking, walking and catching excellent views of the River. The nearby Overlook Inn offers a great meal as well as good drinks from Walter's Pub below (be sure to order a "River Rat.") Bikes and shuffleboard are provided at the Leavenworth Inn.
Some delicious fresh-baked cookies were available, as were coffee and tea. Soft drinks were also available for $1 (honor system). Although it wasn't gourmet or unique, breakfast consisted of sausage, hash browns with ham and biscuits, orange juice, coffee, etc. Various dining areas were provided throughout the main floor; my partner and I enjoyed our breakfast sitting with fellow guests at the dining room table.
Areas of improvement for the Inn include the need for an adjustable shower head in all rooms. I liked the size and comfort of the bathtub very much, but the wide-spray of the shower was unappealing. While the down comforter and pillows were cozy and relaxing, our queen-sized mattress was a little too soft for my taste. Both my partner and I experienced slight back discomfort when we awoke.
Still, I hope to return to Leavenworth Inn one day. This is a classy establishment with one hell of a view, situated in a charming, unique town. The staff is friendly, the area is quiet and the opportunities for relaxation and romance are great. Have a good time.
