Our cozy River House cabin is made for a perfect weekend or week long getaway! Whether you visit during the summer or winter you will always find many things to do or just relax, and take in the breathtaking views of Last Chance Point and Driveway Butte! A seasonal river channel is only steps away from your backdoor and a few steps further and you can play in the year-round Methow River.
During the summer months we are providing a charcoal grill for our guests. We just ask you to bring your own charcoal if you intent to use the grill. Please keep the grill need and clean for the next guests to enjoy, we have provided a metal bin to discard of the ashes.
This is our home away from home and we hope you will treat it with respect and keep it nice and safe for the next visitor.

My wife and I have grown up in Germany, but we have been able to call the greater Seattle area home for the last 10+ years. While living in Germany we used to spent our vacation in the beautiful Northwest, traveling through, WA, OR, British Columbia and Alberta and we immediately fell in love with the area. Mazama combines everything the Northwest has to offer, from great hiking, water activities or great skiing. There is something to do for everyone.
We travel a lot for business and love the tranquility of the Methow Valley, even though we do have internet and a TV at the cabin, we tend to unplug while visiting. There is nothing better then taking in the views from the back porch while listening to the Methow River.
I hope you will enjoy our cabin as much as we do!
