Don’t be mistaken, we love Leavenworth in the summer just as much as we enjoy watching the snow cover our favorite cabins in the winter. But the truth is that there’s really never a bad time to book a mountain getaway! With autumn around the corner, we’re already starting to dust off our cozy sweaters that haven’t seen the light of day since March. Most people know that Leavenworth is a great destination for a summer adventure and a winter getaway, but did you know there is an event almost every weekend in the fall as well?
