Welcome to the Winthrop!

A warm welcome and a smoke-free environment await you at The Winthrop. Located in the eastern slopes of the Cascade Mountains on the Methow River, four seasons of scenic beauty surround us.

Whether you’re viewing winter’s snowcapped peaks from your room’s balcony, relaxing by the pool absorbing the summer sun’s rays or soaking under the stars in our year-round hot tub, the clear skies and clean air will do you good.

Families and groups enjoy our spacious lawns, sand volleyball court, and barbecue picnic area while couples find the riverside seating provides a romantic destination after a moonlight stroll.


Morning Glory Balloon Tours

Local outfitter, Morning Glory Balloon Tours offer visitors the unforgettable experience of seeing the Methow Valley’s spectacular landscape from a bird’s-eye view. And flights take off right here at the Winthrop Inn! Private and group flights are available. The experience starts just after sunrise and lasts about 3 hours including an end-of-flight gourmet picnic back on the ground. It’s the perfect way to get the lay of the land at the beginning of a Methow vacation or conclude a visit with a storybook ending.


The ballooning season kicks off every year on the first weekend in March with the annual Winthrop Balloon Festival. Balloons from all around the Pacific Northwest travel to Winthrop to fill the morning skies with a colorful, warm glow. This is a photographic event not to be missed!
