About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 2-15)

As you wind down a country lane to our 2 1/2 acre Chewuch Riverfront Retreat, all you will see and hear are the river and pine trees.

Inside you are cozily ensconced in a warm, home with the flexiblilty to have one to three dwellings depending on the size of your group.

Only 1 mile from the charming 'western' town of Winthrop with fun bistros, bakeries and plenty of shops to browse.

The main house has a hot tub and a pool/ping pong room. There is an optional wood burning stove for a cozy warmth.

The house can sleep 9 (two queen rooms, a twin in the loft, and a double bunk room). You can also rent our pine cottage (by itself or together) which sleeps 2 - 3. You can even include the 'sleeping-room only' bunkhouse for another 2 - 3 people. You have a choice of renting a place for 2 or up to 14 people.

Winthrop is in the heart of the beautiful Methow Valley, the best place in the State of Washington for cross-country skiing and mountain biking. Hiking, fishing, birding, horseback riding, ballooning and rafting are all popular.

You can rent skis & bikes right in town. There are good grocery stores, restaurants and a seasonal farmers market as well.

The house is comfortable with a western theme. Everything you need to be comfortable is included - you supply food, drinks, and companions!

Note: The availability of the Pine Cottage as a rental by itself (for two) can be seen under #393838. The way VRBO works, we can show only the calendar for the main house under this property #151960. Our place can be rented with all three buildings or individualy depending on the size of your group.

About Andrea Adams

We are two families who are long time friends that bought this property together.

Andrea Adams purchased this house in 2005

Why Andrea Adams chose North Central Cascades

We loved the river and the convenient location near so many activities in a spectatular part of our State of WA.

What makes this house unique

Sitting down at the river in three seasons or snowshowing down there in the winter just can't be trumped for relaxation.


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Perfectly Private

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a long weekend getaway with family. Couldn't ask for a more beautiful setting on the river, with lots of privacy yet close to town. Comfy atmosphere and an abundance of wildlife.

Serenity at the River

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 just returned from a delightful stay at the "Serenity At The River" house. The property is very private and located just steps from the river. The grandchildren, ages 2 - 12 were so happy to have the nice shallow river to "tube in", so spent hours with that activity. The house is very well appointed, and there is a great downstairs Pool/Ping Pong table and a nice hot tub, for cooler nights. We enjoyed sitting out on the large deck, overlooking the river, while grilling our food. The owners are especially helpful and accommodating! We hope to return soon!

Our family rented a different house a few years ago in Winthrop that we loved - nobody expected this one to be as good. By the end of our stay we all felt this place was even better. Everything was great. Some opted for quiet seclusion by the river, especially at dusk when the nighthawks came out to feed on insects over the river. Others opted for the short bike trip to town, for shopping, looking around, but primarily for ice cream. Great place. I recommend it.

Hot Tub!

  • 4 of 5

One of the few rentals in Winthrop with a hot tub. This along with the pool table and board games made days/nights in all the more enjoyable. Only a couple minutes drive to town for shopping and food, including some nice restaurants. I also highly recommend Twisp River Pub a few miles away in Twisp. Some of the best nachos around.

The Beauty of the Chewuch Riverfront Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Six of us ventured to Winthrop for a weekend of outdoor adventure and relaxation. This place couldn't be more perfect. We hung out in the river in tubes with an anchor- it was 100-105 degrees for our visit. We did venture away briefly from the home to tube the Methow River and mtn bike Sun Mtn trails. The location is remote yet just <2 miles from the the town of Winthrop. The couple from Cleveland who have been in Washington State for the last 6-8 years, stated they had seen more wildlife in Winthrop in one weekend than their entire span in WA. We really enjoyed the company of a pair of owls each morning and even the squawking of the Kingfisher. The home has all the amenities but most important was the surroundings. Note: if you do choose to go tubing- remember the water level is pretty low and if you aren't careful, your bum will encounter rocks submerged just below the surface. Three of us have grapefruit size bruises and memories that will last our lifetime.

Owner's Response: Dear Valerie, We're glad you had a great time. The river changes every year and of course this year has been a hot dry year so the river is lower. Thanks for staying with us. Kindly, Andrea

Big family fun

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect property for us. My family, my sister's family and my parents all enjoyed this cabin for the weekend. Great time relaxing by the river, enjoying meals on the beautiful deck, hiking, and relaxing. The living/dining area was large enough for us to host a brunch with friends. The deck has view and comfortable dining set. Really enjoyed our time and recommend the cabin to families.
