Poshhotel” might be a better name for this glamorous adults-only property nestled in the heart of the Bavarian-themed town of Leavenworth. Alpine-inspired wellness experiences and elegant European-style rooms make this spa resort destination an attractive option for couples in need of some serious pampering.

Stay in: The spacious rooms come fully decked out for ultimate luxury, with king-size beds, sitting areas with fireplaces and hand-carved marble soaking tubs. Breakfast and light lunch are included with your stay. Spend endless hours at the wellness center, where a variety of saltwater hydrotherapy pools, saunas, Jacuzzis and even nap rooms await. For more relaxation, there’s a full-service spa, a library and a lobby terrace that overlooks the river.

Head out: Even if you’ve visited before, charming Leavenworth is always fun to explore — wander the village streets, shop, and stop by for some yummy German brats and locally brewed bier. Nearby, hiking, snowshoeing and cross-country-skiing trails are plentiful, along with an adorable reindeer farm. Golfers will enjoy the Enzian Falls Championship Putting Course, available seasonally (April–October) for use by hotel guests.
