River Run Cottage truly offers the serenity of country living along with easy accessibility to downtown Leavenworth and the many activites Leavenworth has to offer.
Watch the River Riders load and head down river from your comfortable covered deck. It's a bird-lovers paradise, year-round, with frequent sittings of bald eagle, osprey, and Canadian geese. We've even had a wayward swan visit us! Often snowy winters bring in playful otters across the river from the Cottage.
You have access to a small, sandy beach and for cooler evenings, a fire pit on the front 1/2 acre or a gas grill on the deck. Salmon and steelhead are in the river and fishing is permitted when season is open.
Although in a private setting, the Cottage is only two miles from the Bavarian Village, close to the festivals, fine restaurants, out-of-this-world shopping and live theater, Other nearby activities include river rafting, hiking, cross-country skiing, golfing, parks and scenic drives.
WE OFFER COMPLIMENTARY CONCIERGE assistance for our guests through Leavenworth Concierge. This includes activity bookings, dining reservations, spa reservations and more. You can be on autopilot while visiting without the hassle of arranging your own activities. Information about these services will be in your welcome letter and in the Cottage on your arrival.

Chuck was born and raised in the Leavenworth area. Ann grew up in Puget Sound (Anacortes/Seattle) and loves both the east and west sides. For most of our married life (married 1967) except for a short stint in Southern Oregon, Leavenworth has been home. Both of us graduated from U.W. Seattle, Chuck in Forest Management and Ann as an R.N. We live in the house we built in 1974, on the river, neighbors to The Cottage. The Cottage was completed in 2000.
We have three adult children, all married with their own families and 12 grandchildren. None of the children live in Leavenworth, but all live close and hardly a week passes that we don't see the 'grands'. As much as the adults love Leavenworth, the kids love it more. They play in and around the river and on the property in summer, sled in winter, the oldest ones are beginning to cross-country ski. They know all the festivals and LOVE the ice cream at Lak's Gallery in town. I'm known as 'Grandma River'.
We love our life! We're surrounded by family and friends, orchards, hills and the ever-changing river. Aong with our Cottage guests we love the seasonal changes along with river; wildlife, fishing for salmon and steelhead and sitting on the beach in the summer.
Close proximity to town is great, with Safeway a mile away, Blackbird Island 2 miles, our church 3 miles. We could almost walk! We, along with the tourists, attend festivals, especially Christmas Lighting, MayFest and SALMON FEST and Summer Theater. We especially enjoy taking drives and discovering new roads in the hills, new houses and new businesses in town.
Ann purchased this cottage in 2000
We really enjoyed the stay here. The cottage was clean & accomodating. We enjoyed the birds, the sunrises, and the full moon rising over the river. Above all we enjoyed watching the river. Very relaxing. Thanks.
Ann surprised my boyfriend with champagne on ice, a piece of cake and a candle, a balloon and a handwritten birthday card. We were both so surprised and loved every minute of our stay.
We've stayed at cottages in Leavenworth before & we found that they lack the privacy and isolation we were looking for. This cottage was absolutely perfect for us and it made us feel like we were far away from the busy town, isolated with our gorgeous river view and we had no issues with privacy. We have found our Leavenworth home & will definitely be staying here again.
The cottage had everything we needed and was very close to downtown Leavenworth. We loved the beautiful view of the river and enjoyed the peaceful mornings on the patio watching the birds. It was so nice to wind down in the hot tub at the end of the day. A perfect little spot!
This cottage topped our list in all categories. The comfort, hot tub and privacy were the best.
On top of that we sat in front of a peaceful stretch of river watching the osprey, hawks, ducks, and the otter play. If you like this you will love this place.
We arrived to find everything as stated. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. Wished we could have been longer. So peaceful with the sound of the river going by.
