Having a-first-time-to-see-each-other-reunion in 40 years, Yes, 40 years, 3 girlfriends - one of us from Scotland, one from Canada and one from the U.S., spent 2 nights and 3 days on a mini-adventure together in Leavenworth, WA. An unequaled "Bavarian" village in the Bavarian looking mountains of Washington State, our stay at the Hotel Pension Anna was superlative in every way. First, we stepped through the portal, and like the wardrobe of Narnia, felt like we were transported to Bavaria, beginning with a "welcome" that was at once oh so warm and friendly and yet still professional. Our room was scrupulously clean, equipped with everything you'd need, and just plain charming, with hand painted furniture, an overstuffed chair great for reading or resting after walking, and perfectly wonderful down comforters, accompanied with instructions for what to do, if you get too warm. You have to read it yourself :-) Breakfasts are so lovely, that they became a real highlight of our stay. The breakfast room is a light, airy room, so perfectly adorned I felt I could stay for hours and just soak up the ambiance. It is definitively "Bavarian cute" without being even a smidgeon "kitschy". The food is thoughtfully chosen, to continue to transport you to Bavaria, both delicious, and deliciously presented, with perfectly cooked eggs, your choice soft boiled or hard, savory thin sliced meats, melt in your mouth cheeses, with a yummy mustard sauce, yogurt, chilled fruits, a scrumptious muesli, and a fragrant moist coffee cake, all perfectly accompanied by juice, coffee and tea. And then there is the staff and owners who are simply superb. It is clear that staff Lee and Donann wish to do whatever is in their power to make your stay sensational. Friendly, knowledgeable, they are on the lookout for the extras, both large and small to help you make memories. While Lee served us our first breakfast she enthusiastically answered are questions of where to eat. Later in the afternoon when the three of us had picked up a portable charcuterie from the shops and returned to the hotel to eat it, we asked for some hot water for tea. Donann not only gave us the hot water, but filled heated metal tea thermos' and seated us upstairs on a lovely balcony with a mountain view, making sure we had plates and cutlery. Then there are Gary and Michele, owners extraordinaire. Dressed handsomely in leiderhosen and dirndls, they are unequaled proprietors. They certainly care about their guests, and enjoy finding out about their visitors. They share about themselves and whatever tidbits might make your stay even better. Of course, Pension Anna is a romantic place to stay for spouses, but it was also perfect for our "International Girl Friend" reunion. My husband and I have also stayed before with our children, and now our adult children go back their with their families. Yes, Gary and Michele's Hotel Pension Anna is a dreamy and divine place for a vacation respite. Just what a get away should be and more! Make memories and Pamper Yourselves at Pension Anna. You might just see and hear Gary playing his huge Alphorn outside and you may have to pinch yourself to be sure you aren't in Bavaria.
