Overview

About the property

3 Bed 3 Bath, ultimate nordic ski access with spectacular views of Goat Wall.

Beautiful gardens and gorgeous grounds surround this large home, and guest cottage, in the Mazama area of the Methow Valley, just a short drive from the National Forest. The home provides comfortable lodging accommodations for a small family, and is also roomy enough for larger parties. The owner, a caterer, enjoys opening the area and lodging for weddings and special events. Goat wall can be intimate, with a guest lodging, for only two. It can also expand to accommodate as many as 12 people. Wooded and secluded, it provides both privacy and exceptional views of Goat Wall.

In the summer, enjoy hiking, rock-climbing, mountain-biking and other outdoor activities. Relax in the evenings on the garden benches, enjoying the views, or take a stroll on the trail running along the back of the property. In winter, this MVSTA trail becomes a groomed cross-country ski trail that joins over 100km of other groomed trails in the 2nd-largest cross-country ski trail system in the country. For those who prefer snowmobiling, the Yellow Jacket Sno Park is just a few miles up the road.

If your group is bigger than 12, or if you want extra privacy, you can also rent the studio that’s annexed to the house. It can accommodate up to 4 people, has a full kitchen and bathroom, and a separate entrance. Just mention it on your booking :)

Two nights minimum stay.

Awesome Get-away location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd year at The Big House. The 'Chicks' from our store do an annual winter retreat to the mountains and we LOVE this place! The kitchen is perfect for our group. There are more than enough dishes, pots and pans, and flatware. The bedroom selection is perfect as well. There are plenty of places for everyone to sleep whether they are willing to share or have a bed or piece of floor of their own! 3 great bathrooms mean there is rarely a line. One of the reason's we choose this location is the proximity to the nordic trails, just a short walk or ski down the driveway to the trail! The Mazama store is close by, for anything that might have been forgotten, or gifts for those who stayed home.

Great house for weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Claudia! We had two families stay together at the Goat Wall for a weekend of XC skiing. The house was comfortable, clean and right on the trails. It was perfect for our Methow Valley weekend vacation.

Great Vacation Spot for Everyone

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends stayed here for Labor Day weekend. We shared amazing meals in the kitchen, games in the living room, and enjoyed all the great things Mazama has to offer. People walked to Fun Rock to climb for the day, drove to Hart's Pass, or simply adventured around the Mazama Store. We will be back! Thanks!
