My husband and I recently stayed at the Mt Gardner Inn for our 30th anniversary. The view from the deck was wonderful. We stayed in the Ptarmigan room. It was very clean and beautifully decorated. I was surprised at how close it was to hwy 20 but since we were away from the road we did not hear the traffic.... More

Sun Mountain just outside of Winthrop is on the list for one of the top destination hotels and of course it is lovely BUT Mt. Gardner Inn is hard to beat for price, cleanliness, kind staff and quiet garden. The rooms were excellent and well appointed; it is an easy walk to the center of town and our guests from... More

This property has been well reviewed and highly rated: Well Earned! It is a delight to stay at a well-run and comfortably appointed privately-owned, definitiely not formula property in a stunning vacation setting. The arrangements were handled flawlessly, the accommodations were most comfortable, and we could not have asked for a more enjoyable experience in this small, quiet, and almost... More

The moment I checked in I knew the Mt Gardner Inn was different. Greeted with bubbling enthusiasm by one of the owners, Alison was full of ideas and recommendations for meals, hikes...anything I was interested in that the area offers. Later I heard Greg giving detailed advice on fishing locations. Everything seems to be covered with firsthand, personal knowledge. These... More

Wonderful accommodations, spectacular mountain views, river rafting and fishing, wine tasting, and delightful cowboy town are all the things you will find at Mt. Gardner Inn, Winthrop, WA. Plus, the couple that own it are welcoming and very helpful.

This is a relatively new hotel. Rooms are good size, good wi-fi, good room darkening curtains and shades. Good views from second floor (deer in adjacent lawn each night) and nice yard on first floor. You can use this hotel to define clean. Wood blinds--clean, baseboards--clean, around light switches--clean. Squeaky. Air Conditioning units so quiet you hardly know they are... More

I have stayed in this motel for years. The owners continually update and improve the rooms. The wifi is fast enough to watch Netflix and they also upgraded to satellite TV. The Methow River is just across the road. You are just a few hundred feet away from a pizza restaurant. The main part of Winthrop is within walking distance... More

We arrived in Winthrop on Friday, July 18th and the wild fires were very active. We contacted our hosts, and Alison confirmed that she could still accommodate us - but that there was no power in town, and they only had cold running water. She upgraded our unit for no charge and kept checking on us to make sure we... More

This is an absolutely charming, top-notch inn. My friends from Leipzig were falling in love with this place. As I have been to Mazama and Winthrop before, this little inn beat the pricey Freestone Inn by a long shot. I will be back for sure. Insa from Mercer Island, Moni and Ursel from Leipzig

Me and my dad were road tripping the great state of Washington and needed somewhere to stay before we headed in to the North Cascades. We decided on Winthrop literally the day before we were going to be there (the only way to truly road-trip), and thanks to the reviews on Trip Advisor we thought we would give this place... More
