My husband I had a great little weekend getaway! There is a gorgeous spot in the Methow Valley, called Freestone Inn, or Wilson Ranch. It is a retreat rich with history and meticulous grounds. We first visited there for our honeymoon and have returned several times, as it's only a couple of hours from our home, along the North Cascade Hwy.
The area is loaded with popular hiking trails, and only a ten minute or so drive from Winthrop.
