Nice location, great access to the mountains, comfortable room and close to food and brewery. Cute town with lots to offer. The Inn's lobby area was welcoming with nice extra touches including coffee, teas and books.

I've stayed in almost every hotel/cabin in the Methow over the past 30+ years, but this was my first stay at Mt. Gardner Inn! What a treat. My son and I were on a mountain biking and trail running trip and this location was perfect for us to access the extensive trail system. We found our room was larger than we expected and loved the personal touches of a white noise machine, tv with available DVDs from the Inn, an extra large sink so we could wash our dishes after eating in the room, very comfortable beds, a shower with plenty of pressure, excellent complimentary coffee, nicely decorated room, table and chairs to dine at, parking outside our door, etc. The owners were very responsive to our needs and helped us speed up the wi-fi connection. We will definitely stay here again! Thank you for making us feel so welcome, Greg & Alison!

We stayed 5 nights in Ravin Ridge A. The room was quiet, spacious, and very clean. The lookout view of the mountains was fantastic. The hotel owners carefully followed the COVID guideline so that we barely encountered the hosts nor the other guests during our stays. Even if we had any room service needs, we were able to text or phone the owners, and our needs were immediately fulfilled. The room we stayed in was very comfortable, cozy, and homy. There was a small kitchen without a cooking stove but we were able to make our own breakfast and heat up leftovers conveniently. The location of the hotel was the best of all because the restaurants were close by while the drives to the various XC ski trailheads were also reasonably close comparing to some other lodging options. We really enjoyed our stay there and appreciated Alison and Greg for accomodating.

This was the ideal resting place for our first visit to Winthrop and the North Cascades National Park! We had the Ravens Ridge A room and it was just delightful! Large bedroom with vaulted ceiling, comfy couch and fireplace (not needed in July...) with a large balcony for drinks or meals (two comfy lounge chairs and a high top table with chairs). The sun sets right off the balcony and over the national park in the distance. There is also a kitchenette with yummy Starbucks coffee and a bathroom with a huge soaking tub, WC and large shower. It was just perfect. I can see this for a romantic trip as well as for a small family with young children. Alison, the owner and host, was super accommodating when we had to adjust our room type for our older children, even though we were within the cancel/modify window. The Inn is a stone's throw from a fantastic (and popular) pizza restaurant. And you can also walk into town (slightly longer but still close). The river is right across the road and there is a cute park. Winthrop itself is super cute with great coffee/bakeries and shops. The national park is right up the road. Hikes are amazing (rec Cutthroat Lake) but the coup de grace is the Methow River. We have our own raft so we were able to hike and float on our own time. The river is just lovely. A classic glacier fed gem. Finally, we enjoyed the fact that this area is just a bit further from some of the spots so it was quieter than other lovely mountain towns. Highly recommend and will be back!

We loved our stay at the Mt. Gardener Inn. The room was one of four that are dog friendly, room #1 with 2 queen beds. We were pleasantly surprised by the size and details in the room: drying racks, mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker and TV with DVD player. Our key and handwritten note was waiting for us in the large, pleasant lobby, with a rack of excellent DVD selections which we used two nights! The location is fantastic, a little road noise from unit #1 but it's Winthrop, not much. We walked into town, walked to pizza, walked to the small movie theater, and loved the hospitality as well as the magnificent Methow Valley. We will be back

My husband and I loved our recent stay at Mt Gardner Inn! Our room was clean and we appreciated the clear COVID-19 updates/instructions. Our check-in was contactless (key left taped to lobby door) and communication was consistent (text and email). We especially enjoyed the outdoor picnic table so we could enjoy the outdoors and eat our take-out meals from town. Very close to town but not noisy. Would stay again!

My husband and I have been staying here regularly during ski season for years. This winter we did a 7-night stay in January and another 7-night stay in February. For the first visit, we were in Pheasant, which is in the back building on the lower level, and we were in room 4 (front building, back side) on the second trip. The beds were extremely comfortable in both rooms. Room 4 has more space since there is only one bed. One reason we love this place is that I can walk to the town trailhead (approximately 1/3 mile), so I can go skiing whenever I want to. It's a longer, but very pleasant, walk into town. The beautiful Barnyard Cinemas is right next door, and we have seen several movies there since it opened.

We loved the quiet room. The bed was comfortable and there were plenty of accessible outlets for charging phones, etc. The fridge was adequate for keeping snacks and food cold. The lobby was stocked with wine glasses, napkins, utensils, etc. to use. Self checkin was hassle free with clear instructions. I had a question about payment and the phone number given to call was answered promptly and response was friendly. I will stay here again when I travel to Winthrop.

We had a wonderful stay at the Mt Gardner Inn. Comfy accommodations, convenient location. We especially loved watching the sunsets and the deer grazing just outside our door. Hosts were very helpful in making sure we had the perfect room for our needs. Really appreciated their health precautions as well. Highly recommend it!

A friend and I spent 2 nights in the Pheasant Room during this Covid situation. We found the room to be very clean and well equipped with several nice touches. Comfortable beds, fridge for our drinks, microwave to warm up leftover pizza, and a coffee maker to wake us in the morning. The lower level room had lawn chairs so we were able to move them out to the grassy area at night to star gaze. We enjoyed being a bit out of town because of being able to see the sky. It was close enough that we walked into town the next morning for pastries. The Knabs check in and check out process worked well (during Covid) and they were very accommodating. We would definitely stay again and highly recommend this charing place. (We drove up to Sun Mountain Lodge and were SO happy we were staying near town at the Mt Garner Inn).
