About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

This house is wonderful in all the seasons. It is a fall Steelhead fishing and deer hunting paradise as well as a summer fly fishing heaven as it sits perched on one of the best fishing holes on the Methow and surrounded by 5 acres of pasture, woods and riverfront. In the winter there is a wild sledding hill. In the summer, sunbath by the pool while viewing the mountains or jump in the river and float down on inner tubes to the town swimming hole. Hop in the hot tub after a day of skiing,hunting, fishing, biking and take in the spectacular view of the valley floor with the cascades in the backdrop and the Methow river 30 yards to the west.

This property faces west so it gets daylight and sunsets later than anywhere in the valley.The House shares 5 acres with another rental property of mine called Aliwood. VRBO #503768 . The combination of the two makes this a perfect compound for a family retreat or wedding.The house interior is rich with knotty pine walls, a huge stone hearth and views galore. all bedrooms have lodge pole furniture cozy duvets, and Ralph Lauren sheets.All the rooms afford views with the master having two porches from which to sip your morning coffee.The bunk room has six bunks, (but will have four after the remodel), all with colorful Pendelton blankets.This room has a door to a deck facing the river.The kitchen is new with modern amenities, a sub zero and a six burner cooks cooktop.There are indoor and outdoor dining spaces.The house is only 1.5 miles from Twisp, 7 miles from Winthrop , 25 mins from Mazama and Sun Mountain Lodge for groomed trails or 25 mins to Loop Loop for downhill.On the same property is my house, Aliwood, also with a pool and hot tub. .VRBO#503768. For large groups it makes for a nice compound. Yet separately they both have privacy. There is a massive lawn in between the two with a huge play structure for the kids.

Great space for families

  • 5 of 5

We stay in the Methow every year with a few families and it's hard to find spaces that work well. The Fishing Lodge has plenty of space, bunk beds for kids, a large kitchen, a great view, and probably the best hot tub in the valley.

Seattle, WA

The perfect place to relax from city life in the Methow Valley.

  • 5 of 5

Our three families enjoyed the beauty, peace and swimming pool at this beautiful country home. The house has 4 bedrooms and a huge bunk room. Our three families fit comfortable in the house. It is well stocked. The kitchen was easy to cook in and socialize at the same time.

The pool of course was the favorite feature of the kids but sitting by the pool and enjoying the river and mountain view was what relaxed the adults. The weather was hot so we got up early and enjoyed the mountains and biking. Then we lounged pool side for the later part of the day. Twisp bakery is close by and we took the kids to the lake one day and horseback riding the next.

We are already planning a return trip.

Amazing place on the river

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Aly for a terrific 4th of July week at your place. It was the perfect setting for our family reunion. The kids had a blast swimming in the pool while warming up in the hot tub. And all the space to run around. And in such a great location (close to Twisp and Winthop, fishing, golf, biking, hiking, etc, etc. We'll be back soon!

The Fishing Lodge was Great!

  • 5 of 5

Our family, three generations, spent a week at the Fishing Lodge and had a wonderful time! The pool and hot tub were the main attractions for all. The grandkids are not old enough to take advantage of tubing on the river, but will be soon. The house was very clean and comfortable. The bunk room was a great hit! Room for all and to spare. Ali is most accommodating but not at all intrusive. Great lawns for toss games, fishing in the river, apples in the orchard, a fully outfitted kitchen, and wonderful views were some of the highlights. We toured the nearby smoke jumper base. Two of the boys plan to make that their career. Good shopping in Twisp and lots to see in Winthrop. Highly recommended.

Better than the rest

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed out in the valley a number of times and found that most all of the houses are similar: undistinguished ski lodges with very basic furnishings. This house is completely different. Great pool and hot tub, beautiful views, well decorated with a top line kitchen and nice beds. 3 steps above the rest.

Amazing Riverfront Home with private hot tub and pool!

  • 5 of 5

My family returned to Ali's Fishing lodge for a second time in August 2016 and the view was even better than we'd remembered!! We have been vacationing in Eastern Washington every summer for the past ten years (usually in Chelan/Manson), and nothing compares to this gorgeous and peaceful setting on the river. We were able to comfortably fit 10 adults (when all the grandparents came for a few nights) and 6 kids for our week long stay. We loved the warm weather, the beautiful surroundings and the fact that it is such a private setting is a huge plus!

The kids loved the pool, the hot tub, and jumping into and floating/swimming in the river. The bunk beds provide enough space for all the kids to rest at night and there are four other comfortable bedrooms as well. There is plenty of patio furniture for everyone to enjoy the beautiful setting outside. We played lots of games outside by the pool and we also ate most of our meals outside too. Ali was available and very accommodating for any questions we had. Ali went above and beyond, she even took her own time to meet us one day and lead us to one of her favorite swimming holes nearby.

Thank you Ali, for sharing your wonderful vacation home. We can't wait to return again!

Owner's Response: Thank you Mary, I hope you do return. I'll be better prepared this time with some mountaineering rope so we can safely repel down the cliffside to the swimming hole!
