The 67-acre Sleeping Lady Mountain Resort, nestled in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains near Leavenworth, Washington, provides the ideal setting for creative exploration and professional development. Recognized for its intelligently designed architecture in harmony with the natural surroundings (and great food!), the center emphasizes the interactions among human beings, the arts and nature to create an atmosphere of productive dialogue and creative inspiration. WiFi access throughout resort.
Imagine drifting to sleep in a cozy mountain setting under a fluffy down comforter and waking to morning birdsong. Guest rooms at Sleeping Lady are arranged in clusters made up of 6-10 private rooms. There are six unique clusters, each named for a nearby natural feature; Cottonwood, Rock, Pond, Meadow, Fountain, and Forest. All guest rooms feature private baths and a warm, welcoming décor that reflects the mountain elegance of Sleeping Lady’s architecture. Canine companion rooms upon request, first come first serve.
The Kingfisher Restaurant & Wine Bar features gourmet meals created with the freshest local ingredients, many from Sleeping Lady’s own two-acre organic garden. Meals are chef’s choice and are served buffet style in Kingfisher’s lodge-style setting which features exposed wood beams, river rock, and sweeping views of Icicle Canyon. In the summer months, the terrace and the creek side meadow are available for outdoor seating.
