Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms (loft) 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This newer upscale 2400 square foot cedar log home is located on the confluence of the Lost and Methow Rivers. The 35 foot glass prow windows face the river and North Cascades National Park. Although the river goes subterranean sometimes during the fall, swimming, rock hunting, snowmobiling and skiing are favorite activities on the river.

This is not your usual 'generic' vacation rental. It is a 'guest home' and it will feel that way too. We provide everything you need to have a great visit -- including many smaller appliances such as waffle iron, ice cream maker, crockpot, etc and all the laundry soap, shampoo, conditioner, body soaps, lotions, paper products, first aid kit, sewing kit -- and much much more.

Access to trails within the National Park, The Pasayten National Wilderness and the Okanogan National Forest are easily accessible by foot. The guest house has a great room with a real rock and wood fireplace as well as convenient in-floor radiant heat.

The home has been designed so that each sleeping area has a view of the river. The upstairs master bedroom boasts a huge lumberman king-size bed and a full bathroom, including skylights. Just outside the huge (half the size of the house) loft are two queen-size beds and a privacy panel if desired.

Downstairs is another private bedroom with a queen-size bed and access to the downstairs bathroom and full laundry room.

Nothing is overlooked in the kitchen including ,recipe books, crockpot, waffle iron, ice cream machine and many other smaller appliances. In the kitchen, is the side-by-side refrigerator with ice maker and all major appliances. Preparing and serving meals on the huge maple island is fun. The dining room table can seat 10.

The big TV/Satellite DISH/DVD/CD is ready for your entertainment as well as many DVD's, CD's, books, magazines and games (including children's). Wireless internet too!

On-site manager (in another building) is there to help with any of your needs.

This guest house will bring you back again and again just so you can try another season here in Mazama, a place we call 'heaven on earth.'

A peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rock N River. The home is incredibly beautiful, with nearly every convenience provided. The views out the "prow" windows were breathtaking. It would have been nice if the river was flowing in front of the property, but mother nature had other ideas. We loved the easy-to-use fireplace and took liberal use of it. The kitchen was well provisioned and allowed us to have some satisfying meals waiting for us when we returned from a day of sight seeing.

Make sure you visit the Mazama store, it is an oasis in a desert of shopping. We are hoping to be back soon.

Amazing home near North Cascades National Park

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a place to stay while exploring North Cascades National Park, look no further. This beautiful home is conveniently located near the park, in a tranquil setting. Waking up each morning with the view of the mountain and creek from the floor to ceiling windows was very peaceful after a day of hiking. The mountain and creek were closer than we thought and nice to walk out to in the evening for some star gazing. The home itself is very beautiful, clean, and comfortable - with tons of space and comfortable beds. This was our favorite stay in Washington.

Linda and Jim are awesome and flexible to work with. They are so pleasant and quick to respond to our many e-mails and helped us get through some glitches with the payment process through VRBO (more like user error). Thank you Linda and Tom for sharing your home with us. We will be telling all our friends of the great accommodations we had in Mazama, WA.

Beautiful home in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at Rock 'n River for four late summer nights and loved the place. We arrived our first night after dark and were awed at the setting come morning - the river is right off the lovely back stone patio and we spent each morning walking along the river with our coffee, soaking up the pristine mountain views and the soothing sound of the rushing river. The house was well stocked, and the kitchen in particular was well equipped for our breakfasts and dinners. Everything was clean and ready for our visit. The rooms are actually much larger than they appear in the photos on-line. Overall we were very satisfied and would recommend it to anyone looking for a peaceful and quite retreat among nature's beauty.

Great Home away from Home: amazing scenery, peaceful, and such a beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Mazama! This home has great amenities and is very well stocked with kitchen items, spices, and more!

Linda and Tom are great people to work with and know all the top places to visit while in the area.

Highly recommend staying at this home, if you have 4 or more people in your group.

Awesome house and hosts

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful stay at RocknRiver with our dog. The house was bigger than it appears in the pictures. It was spotlessly clean and the beds were very comfortable. Tom and Linda were excellent hosts, always available to give advice about restaurants and activities, but also respecting our privacy. We fell in love with Mazama. We will definitely be back.
