New to the area and made the mistake of visiting Leavenworth during COVID. We got nervous about the numbers and tried to cancel, but the Inn would not let us. We came for one night and immediately regretted the decisions. There are way too many people here to maintain social distancing and about 20% not wearing masks on Front St. Would be fun in a non covid time, but not safe in the pandemic. Shame on us for making the reservation, but would have thought the Inn would let us change plans given the crowds.

We came here during covid to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. We had a great experience here all the way from check-in to check-out! Very friendly and knowledgeable concierge! The Blue Elk Inn is farther away from the crowds, and it had a great view of the beautiful mountain from our little private patio with a great little fire pit and patio furniture for relaxing. The rooms were very clean and nice, and had a pretty comfortable bed. The continental breakfast was boxed up and placed by our door every morning, and was full of goodies, with a little bit of everything. We were very pleased and would definitely recommend this place for a relaxing stay. There was also a nice yard in back by the pool and hot tub with plush green grass and beautiful flowers. We loved our stay here and would definitely stay here again!

We really enjoyed our stay. I love when a place carries a theme well. The hotel was thoughtfully decorated throughout guest common areas, from the rustic beams on the ceilings to the giant elk on the wall. Bavarian art pieces were hung on the wall and they even had a cute little children’s story book at the front desk for littles. Walking around the hotel, the art work throughout had blue elks in many of the nature scapes on the walls. Social distancing was easily maintained by both staff and guests alike, though it didn’t interfere with the kind and courteous manner with which we interacted with everyone. We enjoyed private time slots at the pool and spa, star gazing in the evening after a fun round of horseshoes or a long day of walking around town. We preferred walking, but they also offered complementary bikes and helmets, if preferred). We didn’t get to enjoy the fire pit, but they were ready with firewood and s’mores fixings ($). The clean, freshly renovated room had super nice finishes, tasteful art work (with a blue elk) a gas fireplace and shared deck that overlooked the pool/grounds. The king sized bed was extremely comfortable & clean. Did I mention how CLEAN, this place is! The only things that could be improved upon include, screen on the window; to let the fall mountain air in our room. The older A/C unit was loud. Better lighting in the vanity area would be helpful. We loved it so much we added another night and we plan to make this our go-to when we visit again.

Everything was a pleasant surprise from check in to enjoying the pool. The Inn was clean and their Covid policies were well thought out. Reserving time at the pool was easy. The room was clean and well appointed. We would stay here again.
