Property description

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.
