Our room was their suite which was very spacious and a nice decor, nothing gaudy or a dated theme. It had a nice rustic sort of look which is fitting for the quiet mountain getaway. The bathroom had heated floors and the tub was big enough for two. Coffee and a delicious homemade breakfast was provided every morning at our leisure; Vern had asked us the night before when would be suitable. The room also had it's own private entrance and a fireplace that we didn't use, but I assume is used during the colder seasons. The hosts Linny and Vern were very kind and accommodating. They provided us with information of the surrounding area and even invited us to come hang out with them and their friends. The only gripe with the room was the toilet and it's close proximity to the wall. But that is easily overshadowed by how nice the rest of the room and the B&B was. Would definitely stay there again if they would have us.

The Valhalla suite was amazing. Definitely a little retreat. So many details were added to the room. The owners were very kind and the breakfast was really good. There were some negatives. The owners had company over Friday night and we were able to hear them downstairs. It sounded as if they were right below us. It was our anniversary, no kids and we were enjoying ourselves. Well, the bed was squeaky, a bit embarrassing and so we felt as if we were in our parents house trying to be quiet. If we were able to hear them, I know they were able to hear us. Very uncomfortable. The shower has two shower heads, very nice, but when you turned the faucet on for one to a good temperature, the other was only cold water. We tried different ways to even out the temperature between the two but was not successful. Last thing is that my husband had to rig up the electric fire place. The wall switch to turn it on was not working. We could have called up the owner, but we don't like to bother people with little details. I really loved the room, the bathroom area was beautiful, the bed and pillows were very comfortable and the owners were very kind. If the room was an addition to the house on ground level, I would definitely come back, but being upstairs with a squeaky bed did not work for us on a romantic weekend.

A great place to get away for awhile. Enjoyed the town, the setting, the people!

For my husband's birthday, I wanted to find a special B&B close to National Forest hikes but far away from the noise of Leavenworth, and Scandinavian Escape fit the bill perfectly. What a treasure Vern and Linny have created! I've stayed in many B&Bs but this one is my favorite. Great breakfasts, kind hosts, and comfortable accommodations. I look forward to our next visit!

We had a pleasant stay at Scandinavian Escape. Quiet location close to Leavenworth and beautiful property. Hosts are more than accommodating. Breakfasts were excellent (though guests do not have choices) and beautifully presented. Room was comfortable but small and bathroom did not have a door. Overall, we would recommend this property.

As a preface, we stayed in the Valhalla suite, and as such my review will reflect that. Too, as this being my wife and I's first experience in a B&B, the five stars given reflect an experience that rivals that of elite hotel's. Now on to the room, and it is quite a work of art. Genuine, well-heeled interior design coupled with an opulent bathroom. I'm a sucker for good tile work and its in no short supply. Muted gold travertine rightly sized with perfect accents for the walk in shower, a deep jetted tub with similar accessories with my only gripe being the toilet, and by that I actually mean the space in which you must use the toilet. Certain logistical considerations forced the toilet room into being a pretty box with no room to speak of. Not a dealbreaker at all. You are in a kingdom. The view from the balcony gives you a perfect shot of one of the peaks in the local range, oddly reminiscent of a Ricola commerical and giving way to sexy views if the weather is right. Theres a telescope too. Secluded roughly 8 minutes from 'the Town' itself, the Escape (aptly named) is cloaked in nature itself giving you a sense of invisibility amongst a plethora of shops, beer, chocolate and so on. To speak of the hosts themselves, they were perfectly imperceptible, delightful, and served a delicious breakfast each morning at whatever time we requested, even accommodated my gluten issues! And with a smile. They are truly sweet folks. I would wager there are few if any better B&B's in Leavenworth, all things considered. And I bet I would win that wager. Cheers

Once in Leavenworth East Leavenworth Road is located directly before the bridge leading into town if you are coming from Blewett Pass. It has a wide access. Turn left onto East Leavenworth Road. The road will twist and turn with residential homes on both sides. You will go through a definite "S" curve. After that, the road straightens out as far as you can see. WE LIVE ON THAT STRAIGHT STRETCH! Turn off E. Leavenworth Road on the LEFT at a gravel driveway marked with an old fashioned country sign with house numbers listed in a vertical row. (Our house number is listed. It is 8925) There is also a sign reading: "S.E." (Scandinavian Escape!) Travel SLOWLY down the driveway past three homes. Keep winding through the trees. Our inn sits on a hill at the end of the driveway!
