Winthrop Washington: Places to Stay, Eat and Play

By
Managing Real Estate Broker with Windermere Real Estate Methow Valley

Downtown Winthrop Washington

Winthrop Washington is a yet another great get away for people in Seattle seeking a weekend escape or a vacation destination.  Winthrop is located in the northern Methow Valley and has a western theme that attracts tourist to our little town every year.  We are about 4 hours from Seattle making this a logical choice for those seeking to get lots of sun, find a relaxing spot and or world class outdoor recreation in a mountain setting.

Since it is certainly getting chilly outside with record low temperatures I am starting this blog series with  places to stay in Winthrop.  Stay tuned for my sequel blogs of places to eat in Winthrop, followed by places to play in Winthrop.  For my blogs on these topics about Mazama Washington visit http://activerain.com/blogsview/1280033/mazama-washington-places-to-stay-eat-and-play

There are many places to stay in Winthrop including motels, hotels and resorts.  The town of Winthrop will tend to fill up and get booked out on the big holiday weekends so be sure to call ahead to ensure you have a place to stay.   Here you will find some highlighted lodging.

Starting with the most affordable, Winthrop has the Virginian.  There is nothing particular fancy about the Virginian but if you are just looking for a place to stay and want the least expensive, the Virginian is it.  They are located right on the Methow River and just across from our Methow Valley real estate office.  If you are staying at the Virginian please feel free to come by the John L. Scott Office and say hi.  The Virginian puts you in walking distance of just about everything in Winthrop.

Looking for a very nice place with friendly staff and outstanding customer service?  The River Run Inn is located just out of Winthrop Washington within walking distance to the downtown area, yet it has a very relaxing and secluded feel.  There is a full indoor pool and hot tub, barbeque, deck, and picnic tables right on incredible sandy riverfront.  My parents checked out every lodging and chose this one for their visit each year.

Right in town is the River's Edge Resort, Duck Brand Hotel and Hotel Rio Vista.

Within a 6 mile radius there are two special resorts to mention.   Sun MoView of Gardner from the meadow at Sun Mountain Winthrop Washingtonuntain is a world class destination.  You will be about 15 minutes from downtown Winthrop Washington, but the views are spectacular, with fine dining and beautiful rooms.  Sun Mountain runs specials that are really fantastic for a resort of this quality.  Look out for the specials for a really superb experience.  They have everything from cafes and bar to full fine dining, exercise room, pools, spa,  hot tubs and much more.

The oldest resort located right at the center of the MVSTA Ski Trails system in Wolf Creek Washington is Wolfridge Resort.  All the lodging at Wolfridge has a log cabin rustic elegance feel with full kitchens.  There is a parkland, play area for children, river trails, club house, barbeque, hot tub, pool and much more.  There are no restaurants so you will want to stock up on groceries before you arrive. To learn more about Wolf Ridge Resort visit http://www.wolfridgeresort.com/.  If you need extra groceries during your stay the nearest grocery store is located about 6 miles away in Winthrop Washington and right next to our John L. Scott real estate office.  Please stop by to say hi.

Hello Mary, Winthrop and the Methow Valley are incredibly beautiful, and I've always enjoyed my visits there.  A bit of a drive for us in Vancouver (Southwest Washington) though.  Do you have a good small-plane airport there?  John

Oh thank you for commenting, yes we have three small airports here.   There is one in Twisp, Winthrop and Lost River.  I believe the Lost River runway is a little short on the length as some clients have mentioned to me.  There is even an very nice lot on the river just across from the runway that is surprisingly beautiful.  PS I might know someone moving ot Vancouver and may need a home.  I will keep you posted.  It  is a long shot.

Mary what a fantastic job you did on this Localism post...a couple things I learned for google juice, when you write in Winthrop WA anywhere in the post make it bold and google picks up on it better!
