Serenity on the river yet close to town and all activities

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


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.

We've stayed at another house in the area for two years now but went with Andrea's for a change. And we are so happy we did! It is so "secluded" (in a way) that we experienced the property, river and wildlife as if no one else was in the area! We had our own beachy riverfront, with direct access into it, floated on our rafts, never seeing another soul (for 10 days I may add.) The house was perfect for our group of three couples...3 bedrooms & 3 bathrooms. The only thing missing, what we thought would be a problem, was no air conditioning (with 90+ degree days). However, knowing this going into the stay, we brought many, many fans and with those already at the house, we made it feel like we were walking into an air conditioned house. SO BRING THOSE FANS and you will have a wonderful time away from the hustle & bustle of everyday life. Thank you, thank you! Already booked for next year (14 days!!!)

Owner's Response: Hi Annette, We're happy you enjoyed out place as much as we do. There are so few days it stays warm at night since we're down low by the river. Fans are the way to go. We can provide more of them so that you never have to bring your own again. We too love that we're close to town but feel like your miles away once situated at our special little spot by the river. Kindly, Andrea

Love the environs!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay... beautiful environs! The snow and the river and all the nearby winter activities were a blast. Although the house sleeps nine, the layout wasn't great for our family... the top floor has the master and a nice twin in a nook but all the other rooms are in the basement two floors below. That felt uncomfortable for my little ones to be so far away from us and out of earshot, but we made it work by having them sleep on the sofas on the first floor, which was open to above (master bedroom is not closed off/soundproof) Winthrop is amazing and we would love to have a cabin here.

This is a wonderful home for a group of friends to meet up for a long weekend getaway. Relax, play some board games, do a little sledding, play some pool, and enjoy the hot tub.

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.
