About Tony Halstead

We are a couple who live in the Seattle area and try to escape the big city to our cabin in the Methow Valley as often as possible. We are experienced in tackling remodeling projects and were particularly drawn to this 100-year-old cabin for its rich history, beautiful scenery and potential to make it a home-away-from-home.

Tony Halstead purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Tony Halstead chose Winthrop

When visiting our cabin in spring, summer and fall, we love the fragrant pine smell while hiking our own trail that leads to the main MVSTA. Of course, the best part of visiting in the winter is the skiing. The snow is incomparable for cross country and skate skiing and the many miles of trails provide serene skiing with rarely bumping into other skiers. Our favorite haunts for shopping and dining are a short drive away to Winthrop. We also like going to the luxurious Sun Mountain Lodge for Sunday brunch.

What makes this cabin unique

This old house was built in 1906 as the main ranch house on the Big Valley Ranch, which was then located three miles west of Winthrop. In 1990 the building was moved to this location and placed on a daylight basement foundation and remodeled as a guest house. We bought the cabin in 2004 and remodeled further to our taste, including the conveniences of modern living without losing its character. The yard is suitable for children and dogs. We hope you like it.

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

Great location, quiet but not to far from Mazama and Winthrop or the Mountains for Day hikes. Well stocked kitchen, good sized living area and dining room. Comfortable beds. Great chairs on the front porch to sit on and soak up the sun!!

This place is awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Situated near Winthrop town and the northern cascades best destinations, I couldnt have picked any place better than this. :) The house is so spacious (4BR and 3bR), also has a splendid view of the mountains. The house has the vintage feel, not to mention awesome balcony at the back. Will return here in the winter!

Really nice cabin, ski to trail system

  • 5 of 5

Lovingly updated, solid, and spotless cabin, with spacious bedrooms on three levels, well-stocked kitchen, great location a couple miles shy of the Mazama Country Store. Perhaps 4.5 stars because of limited living room, but the dining area easily handles 8-10 and there is more common space adjacent to the basement bedroom. Ski on private path through the woods to the tracked trail system. Owners were great to deal with. We plan to return next year.

It was clean, good location, had everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

The house set up was great for 4 adults and two kids. The owners were very friendly and attentive--they answered our multiple questions very quickly. A hot tub would be nice. Heat worked great, it was very cold outside.

Great property and location!

  • 5 of 5

Property was as described and very nice. Only thing is GPS will send you to the wrong property and this one isnt marked clearly especially if you are driving at night. Best way to find it is that it shares the driveway of the "cute cabin " white sign. Very easy to see.

Nice place

  • 5 of 5

Clean, larger inside than what the photo shows. Community trail easy to follow and find right off the driveway. Street address led us to some other random property (google maps) however by following the driving directions from owner it was easy to find. Cell and internet service spotty in the area so have the info up before heading out in the car. Wifi easy to find/connect to. Nicely located between Mazama and Winthrop, lots to do in the area.
