Holiday Rental House
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. (The meadow in the photo below is larger than it looks - about a half-mile long!) 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 warm summer days, and is a great place to sit and relax. The cathedral ceiling and skylights in the 800 square foot living ...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 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 (can be pushed together to make king-size) in the new passive-solar bunkhouse. The wood-fired sauna offers a great way to recover from a day of hiking or skiing. Our two tents (small party tent seats 25 people, large sky-lodge tent seats 200) offer additional space in summer, making it a perfect place for a picturesque wedding or a fun-filled family reunion. Hikes right from your door take in views of snow-capped peaks, and private groomed ski trails wind through the property in winter. There are numerous slopes to choose from for back-country skiing, snowboarding or sledding. Nearby is the friendly Loup Loup downhill ski area, and the beautiful Methow River offers prime whitewater rafting. Springtime brings a magic carpet of wildflowers covering the land. Choose from several local swimming holes for cooling off in the summer. The town of Twisp offers live theater and a thriving Farmer's Market in the summer, music throughout the year, an art gallery, restaurants, and more. Located on the sunny side of Washington State, close to mountain lakes and whitewater rivers, recreational opportunities abound. 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' expectations! Note: Caretakers live on the property, around the corner from the main house. They are well-practiced at being invisible, and it is their objective that you have a very quiet and peaceful stay!More
