Taking a road trip to a part of the northwest you haven’t been to before is a great way to set yourself up for a fabulous time. One area that is really worth exploring is the Methow Valley in North Central Washington.
The Methow Valley, home to the Methow River, is a beautiful rural area peppered with small towns and great scenery. If you love outdoor recreation, then this is the place for you. You’ll also be happy though just going on a scenic drive, visiting one of the many local communities, checking out some historical sites, or venturing off to capture some photos of some of the best scenery around.
One vacation property that really helps your time there be all that it can be is The Ranch.
The Ranch features a welcoming and cozy decor, along with some great amenities. The kitchen is fully stocked which makes for some fun meals in your home away from home, and also helps save money rather than eating out too. If you travel with a pet, The Ranch features an outdoor enclosed pen that connects right up to the house. The wireless internet at The Ranch is a nice addition to the rural surroundings too. All of the furniture, from the living area to the bedrooms, is very comfortable too. If there is a chill in the air, the wood stove will be a nice feature that you can take advantage of too.
Outdoors, you’ll love your time at The Ranch. There are trails that head off in several directions, and some of them link up to other local trail systems. You’ll also have relatively easy access, via a trail down the bank, to the Methow River that runs right by your vacation home away from home. Kick back and enjoy the sound of the rushing water if you’d like. If you really want to, you can also splash around in the cold mountain water.
Venturing out from The Ranch will allow you to see things like the Old West town of Winthrop, the Columbia River community of Pateros, the high mountain beauty of Washington Pass and the North Cascades Highway, as well as attractions a little farther away like Grand Coulee Dam, Chief Joseph Dam, Lake Chelan, Rocky Reach Dam, and Wenatchee.
If outdoor recreation is your thing, depending on what time of year you’re visiting, you’ll have choices like hiking, skiing, river rafting, water skiing, hot air ballooning, rock climbing, mountain biking, and more.
A visit to the Methow Valley can be a lot of fun and to make the most of it, you should look into staying at a great rural vacation home, The Ranch.
