Upon rail arrival in Leavenworth, take a prearranged (private/limited service) taxi or shuttle to the resort from Leavenworth. Retreat goers must take initiative to both prearrange and independently pay for all associated costs without reimbursement. The Amtrak rail ticket is roughly $30-to-$40 round trip. Schedule is limited and the evening rail schedule to Leavenworth is after dark and thus largely non-scenic.
