Halloween, R.I.P. means Revel In Pumpkins
“Our guest love coming each fall not only to hike and bike amidst the beautiful colors of the Cascade Mountains,” mentioned innkeeper Monty Turner, “but also to see what new and different ideas we’ve come up with for our pumpkins this year,” said Turner. Pumpkins line the drive up to the inn, and greet guests in their suites, on the private decks overlooking the wildlife refuge, on breakfast tables, and throughout the inn. The displays are the creation of the Turners, and their local decorator, Patti Bosket.
You’ll find whimsical pumpkins, handpainted pumpkins, decorated pumpkins, red, green, white and yellow pumpkins joined by much of the natural growth that surrounds the inn. The emphasis on the décor – as it is throughout the inn – is on appreciation for nature’s gifts.
|Not only do guests and
the trick-or-treaters revel in pumpkins, but starting about November,
the deer from the refuge that surrounds the inn begin foraging to store
food for the
long winter. “We love to watch the deer
literally kick the pumpkins about in an effort to split them open and get at
the seeds,” says innkeeper, Karen Turner. “If
we didn’t know better, we’d think they’re playing their own version
of football,” finishes Turner. Throughout
the year, not only has word gotten out among human inngoers, but also among the
deer population, where the best source of pumpkins in the
Run of the River
is an elegant log inn on the banks of the Icicle
River, about a half mile upstream from Leavenworth, WA. Run
