Rustic elegance popular with skiers and nature lovers.
Nestled in the Methow Valley, this 18-room inn showcases log beam and cedar shake construction. While it may have a rustic feel, it's far from bare bones. The real highlights, however, are its natural setting and its views. Most people come to this unpretentious place to ski in the winter, hike in the summer and explore the woods, narrow valley and mountains year-round. Each of the rooms is individually decorated and features a country quilt, as well as private bath. Fifteen of the rooms have decks, and a few have jetted tubs and a gas fireplace. There are no TVs or phones in the rooms, but it's worth the sacrifice for a view of 7,000-foot Goat Peak and a rock wall that runs down the valley. The property houses a ski shop in the winter and a popular local restaurant in summer.
