Our home is 5 miles from Winthrop, yet is very private and has one of the best views in the valley. It sits on 20 acres and is bordered by public land which contains endless miles of hiking and biking trails. You will enjoy our large deck with sunset views of Pearrygin and Davis Lakes and the Sawtooth Mountains. In the evening roast marshmallows over the outdoor fireplace and listen to the coyotes. In the Winter months it is a wonderland with cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing and sledding right out the front door. Loup-Loup Ski Bowl is a 30 minute drive away. The house includes a fully stocked kitchen, hot-tub, ping pong and bumper pool tables, I-pod hook-up and lots games. What it doesn’t have is a TV or wireless Internet because we like to “unplug” when we are enjoying our home (although cell/handheld connection from multiple providers is 4-bar strong).

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: We are a family of four from Seattle and venture to our home in the Methow whenever possible. However, since our daughters are getting older with more demanding school and sports schedules our weekends in Winthrop are sadly few and far between.
Why the Owner Chose Winthrop: We love going to our Methow home to 'unplug' from our busy lives in Seattle. Our home is very private with easy access to hiking and biking trails, yet it is only a few minutes from the charming towns of Winthrop and Twisp.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Location, views, games galore, hammock for lounging, lawn for soccer/Frisbee, lots of wildlife, quality family/friend time, hiking, biking, climbing, adventures, great floor plan, big deck, hot-tub, loads of fun!
