The place to go to get away from it all....Situated in the renowned
Methow Valley (foothills of the North Cascade Mountains), this
private retreat is nestled in a secluded basin all its own, at the
end of the road. The property's 160 acres is surrounded by thousands
of acres of National Forest wildlands, with the nearest private
property over a mile away.
This Non-Smoking house features a charming, rustic wood interior with
a handsome rock fireplace. Recently remodeled, it now boasts a radiant
heat floor covered with beautiful bamboo flooring. The deep, covered
porch catches a breeze on hot summer days, and is a great place to sit
and relax. The cathedral ceiling and skylights in the 800 square foot
living room provide an inspiring atmosphere for rest and renewal.
There is ample space for family and friends, but it is also a cozy
setting for a quiet romantic get-away. There are three bedrooms in the
main house, and 6 bedrooms with twin beds in the new passive-solar
In the winter we have about 10km of groomed ski trails winding
through the property, with several slopes to choose from for back-
county skiing, snowboarding or sledding.
Spring, summer and fall have their own attractions -such as a blanket
of wildflowers covering the land, or the joy of swimming in cool,
clear mountain waters. There are a variety of hikes right from the
door of the lodge, taking in views of the Methow Valley, old-growth
ponderosa pine trees and snow capped peaks. Or sit by the seasonal
creek, flowing down from Lookout Mountain into a pristine pool.
The wood-fired sauna offers a great way to recover from a day of
playing, whether it's hiking, biking or skiing.
We also have a couple of tents, one 15x15 (seats 25 people), the
other 2000 sq feet (seats 200), for additional space in summer. It's
a perfect place for a picturesque wedding, or a fun-filled family
Our guests appreciate the silence this property has to offer. They
say that although many places say they offer seclusion, this is the
only place that really delivers. We have also been told that the
photos don't really capture the place, it usually exceeds peoples'
Note: Caretakers live on the property, around the corner from the main
house. They are well-practiced at being invisible, and their
objective is that you have a very quiet and peaceful stay!
