Leavenworth, the Bavarian Village of Washington

Leavenworth, WA, also known as the Bavarian Village of Washington State for it’s themed architecture and alpine backdrop, is a worldwide travel destination all year round with local events and large festivals that pack the calendar and keep visitors coming back for more.  Beaver Valley Lodge is only 14 miles from Leavenworth making it close enough to easily enjoy the town, but also far-enough removed that visitors can avoid the hustle and bustle if they choose.  The largest annual festivals in Leavenworth are Oktoberfest (the first 3 weekends in October) and the Christmas Lighting Festival (the first 3 weekend in Dec) which draw hundreds of thousands of visitors every year.  Besides the wonderful events, there’s shopping, dining, and loads of recreation activities thanks to the nearby rivers and mountains including hiking, biking, climbing, rafting, kayaking, swimming, and so much more.
