At the heart of the scenic Methow (pronounced met-how) Valley, in the western theme town of Winthrop Washington, is the Mt Gardner Inn. A perfect spot for travelers looking for great rooms at great prices. Located in the center of 3 million acres of public land, the area is known for world class hiking, biking, fishing, climbing, horseback riding, water sports, birding, scenic drives and cross country skiing. North Cascades National Park, boasting 9,000' peaks with more than 300 glaciers, waterfalls, alpine lakes and deep valleys, is a 30 minute drive from the inn. The Mt Gardner Inn is located on The Cascade Loop Scenic Higway, "One of America's grandest, most spectacular drives" - National Geographic Magazine.
Take a short ten minute stroll to downtown Winthrop over one of two pedestrian suspension bridges. You may see a resident bald eagle or steelhead trout along the way. Once in town, choose from fine dining, the local brewery with award winning beers, a delectable bakery, mexican fare and western home cooking. Don't miss shopping at Winthrop's galleries, boutiques, outdoor gear stores, antique shops, kitchen and garden shops, and even an independent bookstore. The Methow Valley is a leader in the shop local movement. You can check out Methow Made to find out where to purchase items from local farmers and craftsmen while in the valley.
"One of the best budget spots in town is the Mt Gardner Inn. A little mom-and-pop place run by a friendly young couple who keep the place in tip-top shape. The furniture is new and the rooms are spic-and-span. There are several room options, including pet-friendly rooms and more luxurious rooms with private decks." - Moon Handbooks (Travel guidebook)
All of our deluxe rooms except for the Ptarmigan room are located in our west building. (See Rooms page for details of each room.) We designed and built this building with our guests' comfort in mind. Each deluxe room has a private deck or patio. All guests have access to the lovely lawn and common area with BBQs, multiple seating options for relaxing, and views of the Cascades.
This charming building is a Winthrop Western theme classic. We have completely renovated the building in our years of ownership. It is at the front of our property and houses the inn's lobby, our Standard rooms (see Rooms page for details of each room,) and our newest Deluxe room, the Ptarmigan. The common lawn and picnic area is right across the parking lot from the east building.
