The staff and managers at River Run Inn hope you are doing well, following recommended health guidelines and, most of all, getting outside to enjoy the beautiful weather as we all love to do here in the Methow Valley.  This message seeks to outline our proud stance on the room availability to essential workers at River Run Inn to support our community and those in need, current business operations, and cleaning protocols.



River Run Inn is available for those essential workers in need of lodging for a variety of essential reasons. If you are in need of lodging for the reasons below, please call us at (509) 996 – 2173 for details:

  • First responders, healthcare works, or other valley residents in need of a place to isolate
  • Essential employees who must travel

We ask that your stay with us only occur if it is for a reason that is essential in nature. At this time, we are discouraging travel related to tourism, recreation and socializing.  River Run Inn is a location where essential lodging can be accommodated with social distancing and where isolation is available. All of our rooms open to the outdoors and we have no elevators nor interior hallways and we are currently keeping guest rooms separated with a room in between .

Our hope is to encourage lodging at River Run Inn in the future and that you remember our responsible approach to assist with ‘flattening the curve’ even though this compromises our bank account. We hope you remember us in your travel plans in the near future.



Along with scanning employees for fever, sickness and possible exposure to COVID-19 each morning, we also practice the recommended health guidelines such as social distancing, mask-wearing and routine hand washing.  We are not accepting cash at this time and have a no-touch credit card transaction process. Our pool room and main office are both closed and will remain closed until further notice. We have a unique check-in process designed to keep everybody safe and distant; please call for further details.



Our property has been through an extremely deep and thorough cleaning/sanitizing/disinfection process. This involved gutting and clearing every single room, cabin, and even our guest house of absolutely everything from the bedding to the amenities to the soap dispensers to the cooking ware, you name it, it has been removed and sanitized!  Even the pens in our offices have been cleaned! In conclusion, all high-impact touch-points are sanitized regularly throughout each and every day.

Know that our thoughts are with you, with your health and with your safety as well as the health and safety of the general public. We hope this helps to clarify our approach. We hope to help you to understand our decisions and why we have made them. We have had a lot of tremendous support from the community here in the valley and we really appreciate it! We hope to continue to have everyone’s’ support through these tough times and we look forward to seeing everyone again soon! But for now please take care of one-another, enjoy every day, get plenty of fresh air, keep that distance, stay safe and stay healthy!  We are proud of our responsible approach and want you to know that our operations have the public health at the forefront of our decisions.
