8. Sleeping Lady Mountain Resort
Bavarian-themed Leavenworth’s surrounding mountain peaks are among the most beautiful in the Pacific Northwest, with miles of hiking trails through fragrant ponderosa pine forest. Sleeping Lady Mountain Resort, on the banks of Icicle Creek, takes full advantage of the surrounding natural beauty with rustic-yet-deluxe architectural touches such as high vaulted ceilings, huge picture windows that frame the pines, and alcove daybeds. Come hungry: The resort’s Kingfisher Restaurant features delicious and sustainable Northwest cuisine served buffet-style. After a day of hiking, dip in the on-site rock hot pool and sauna. Children age 4 and younger stay and dine free.
