Please accept a heartfelt welcome as we invite you to the Obertal Inn and Leavenworth Vacation Homes. The 27-room Inn is privately owned and operated since 1992. Surrounding Obertal (The German translation is “top of the valley.”) is a breathtaking view of the beautiful Cascade Mountains. We, and all but one of our properties, are in downtown Leavenworth. A relaxing respite can be found at our All Seasons River Inn property located just 1.5 miles out of town.
Leavenworth offers something for everyone in every season. In the summer the focus is on water; rafting, canoeing, kayaking and tubing. We would be remiss, though, if we left out hiking, biking, climbing, horseback riding, walking and strolling. In short, there is a lot to do and you won’t be bored. The Bavarian Village has international cuisine that tempts your senses. Leavenworth is also a unique shopping experience with over one hundred stores, each with its own personality and ambiance. Come experience all that Leavenworth has to offer. We are Dog Friendly!
Leavenworth is an amazing little Bavarian Village in Central Washington and attracts tourists from all over the world. It is situated in a gorgeous valley in the Cascade Mountain Range, about 2 hours east of Seattle. My wife and I purchased the Obertal Inn in November of 2010. I was 52 years old and risked our entire life savings on making my dream a reality. Needless to say, I am eternally grateful for my wife allowing me that indulgence. So, here we are, almost 11 years later. We have built a thriving small business. We have worked tirelessly to improve our hotel and have invested well over $1.8 million in capital upgrades since purchasing the hotel. We have added 27 vacation rental properties as well, all, except one, in the downtown core.
A long time ago, one of my early mentors asked me “Hans, why are you in the hotel business?” He told me to think about it and tell him when I figured it out. It took me a couple of days, but it hit me when I realized that, in effect, we are doctors. Now before you start laughing, think about what we do. When you make plans to stay with us, you likely must drive here. You are also likely to just wanting to get away from the daily grind for a bit. After your drive and under the stresses of daily life, I am pretty sure your blood pressure has risen a bit and you are somewhat tense once you arrive at our Inn. We are equally certain, that, once you have stayed with us and slept in our comfortable beds and we have done all the “working” for you and you are ready to drive home, you will feel better than when you arrived here. I guarantee it! (I hope it’s not a copyrighted phrase from the Men’s Wearhouse.) That is why I see us as Doctors.
So, let me invite you to come to Leavenworth and stay with us. I am very confident you will like it as much as the 100’s and 100’s of guests we have taken care of in the past!
