I've been a Washingtonian my whole life and this is one of the coolest places in this lovely state of mine. I came across this place when an influencer I follow on my Instagram posted it on her page. I couldn't believe I've never come across this place when my family and I have been to Leavenworth multiple times. It's true that you've got to look beyond...find that "diamond in the rough", if you will.
Leavenworth is an interesting, beautiful place on its own...Washington's own little Bavaria. The beautiful compound featured here - Posthotel Leavenworth - opened to the public in 2017 and is an adults-only wellness retreat that adds an elegant Euro vibe to the community.
Walking the property, you'll find little details:
Our room detAils
Elegant and simple, the design in the guest rooms are well-executed. There is a great mix of feminine and masculine characteristics that balance one another and is easily pleasing to all people. The water bottles found atop the desk is free to guests. Many brought one with them while strolling the property - convenient for staying hydrated. The white robes and slippers are meant for all guests to wear out and about so don't be surprised to see others in their bath garb.
TIP: one thing my cousin suggested is to bring flip-flops if you don't want to wear your room slippers out (especially at the pool area).
The wellness room is the place to be! My husband and I found ourselves there a couple hours at a time. The pool area features an indoor/outdoor heated salt-water chlorinated pool with large arched full-sized windows that open during the warmer months. There are loungers spread across the whole width of the room. When you get hungry, you’re free to leave your things to grab a quick breakfast or lunch upstairs. There are usually several pool attendants overlooking the place.
NOTE: Cameras aren't generally allowed in this area (which is why pics are scarce) to preserve others' privacy...however, if no one is around, you may do so (a secret tip from the staff). A few minutes before the place opens in the morning, you may be able to persuade the pool attendant to enter and take a few pics or video.
Just behind you'll find a number of steam and sauna rooms. Laminated detox guides are found in baskets on the consoles. For further explanation, don't hesitate to ask a pool attendant for clarification.
The nap room is located in a private room overlooking the pool area. The napping beds are actually water beds...YES...water beds. From my last conversation with one of the pool supervisors, however, they are set to remodel the area to better serve guests.
Breakfasts and lunches are complimentary and included in your stay. As our waiter told us, "we want you to relax...order the whole menu if you'd like...YOLO." HAHA! The menu is generally the same each day but will change periodically.
Drinks are on the healthier spectrum so don't expect to find sugary sodas (there are restaurants/bars around for that). You're able to bring in food from outside but it's preferred to eat your order or leftovers in your room.
They serve "evening bites" which range from about $15 - $22 and are good-sized portions. The charcuterie board, however, is a shareable platter and may be too much food for one person.
Desserts are served nightly at 7pm and changes every evening. You have the option of eating it in the dining area or enjoying it in the comfort of your own room. Try their lavender-flavored drinks (they can make lavender-flavored anything for you) to pair with your sweets. We opted for lavender lattes and they were yummy.

Without further ado, Part 2 of my Leavenworth trip featuring this blog entry is here:
I hope you get to experience everything this place has to offer. To be honest, prices are on the higher side (as it should be, given the quality and time it took to build this place to accommodate guests comfortably). It truly is a place to relax and, in my opinion, worth the price. The staff are friendly and helpful, the food is healthy yet tasty, and the surrounding views are absolutely breathtaking. What can I say...it's a little slice of heaven on earth.

Thanks Shanna! We booked 2 mos in advance - they fill up quick. Treatments, however, I booked 2 weeks in advance. If you're ever able to snag a room, let me know what you think - I'd love to know!
