About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4 -- Treehouse Suite by special arrangement

Whatever the season, Skytop is the ideal base for your Methow Valley adventures. Guests enjoy spectacular views, enchanting wildlife and remoteness -- all within an easy walk to downtown Winthrop. The cottage is wheelchair-accessible.

The main cottage was completed in 2014, and a second bedroom -- the elegant Treehouse Suite -- added two years later. Amenities include recycled bowling-lane countertops, gas fireplace and barbecue, an extensive library and DVD collection, high-speed Wi-Fi, and even a resident celebrity: 'Sue', a replica of the Field Museum's famous T-Rex. The kitchen includes a gas range, microwave and dishwasher. The separate Treehouse Suite features a gas fireplace, freestanding tub and breathtaking second-story views. Skytop guests may rent it for an addition $100 per night, paid directly to the owner. (Sorry, no pets.)

Great property. Great host. My family really enjoyed the views, the proximity to downtown and skiing, and the very cool cabin. The place is really beautiful, clean, comfortable and thoughtfully set up (including very usable and well stocked kitchen). Hope to stay again next year.

Fabulous house! Fabulous views!

We could not have had a better time, and this beautiful house—Skytop— made all the difference. It is spotless, modern and chic, and the views of hills and mountains will give us good memories for a lifetime.

Great cozy living space. Awesome decor, fireplace and kitchen.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. We go to Winthrop every year for my husbands birthday in January. We decided to stay someplace different this year and glad we did. Skytop was secluded but close to town and trails. Just what we needed.

Great place. We had all we needed to make a Thanksgiving memory. The fireplace warmed during the snow fall. The music on the CDs was eclectic. Shower and towel warmer nice touches. Everything as described. Thank you.
