About Our Leavenworth Resort
Preserving Native History and Land Acknowledgement
Sleeping Lady and our owner, the Icicle Fund are located on the ancestral homeland of the p’squosa (Wenatchi) people and honors them as the original stewards of this land. We serve a region that is comprised of the homelands of many tribes including the Colville Confederated Tribes, the Confederated Tribes and Bands of Yakama Nation, and the Sauk-Suiattle. We believe this heritage is critical to understanding and appreciating North Central Washington.
Sleeping Lady Mountain Resort’s story is a fascinating one, from the land’s Native American roots to our passion for environmental sustainability. We strive to create a space that will continue to allow memories to be made and stories to be told.
A Brief History of Sleeping Lady
At Sleeping Lady Mountain Resort, we believe in travel with a purpose. Every time you visit the spa, enjoy a meal or stay with us, a portion of every dollar you spend benefits the Icicle Fund - a non-profit organization founded by Sleeping Lady’s founder, Harriet Bullitt. Icicle Fund supports other local North Central Washington organizations whose work aligns with Fund’s mission of engaging people with arts, history and the natural environment.
Since its inception in 1999, the Icicle Fund has invested more than $40 million in over 100 organizations in our region. Results have included access to the arts for kids and adults, increases in wildfire preparedness, expanded hiking trails, open spaces and much more.
And now, you have the ability to advance this important work when you stay, dine and relax with us. We are so thankful to Harriet for her vision in creating Sleeping Lady here and her gift, ensuring it will continue to nurture all who visit!
