If you ride a motorcycle (or drive a car and love wonderful scenery) in the Pacific North West you will be very familiar with Highway 20 near the Canadian border that passes through the North Cascade mountains. Only open in the summer the North Cascades run is amazing starting at Sedro Wolley and ending at Winthrop Washington. Winthrop is a western style town with wooden sidewalks and a collection of great shops and cafe's. Every time I have gone over the Highway 20 run I have stayed at the Hotel Rio Vista in Winthrop. It is one of the few hotels that I always call ahead and make reservations because it fills quickly in the summer and is often booked weeks in advance for special events. The rooms are a western style motif and the. Big draw of the hotel is that every room has a view of the Methow River. Although not what you would call "upscale" the rooms are spacious and well appointed. The staff are helpful and friendly and go out of their way to make your experience a good one. The hotel is well located within walking distance of several good cafe's and the center of town. It's hard not to fall in love with Winthrop and the Hotel Rio Vista. I have stayed there about a half a dozen times and will stay there again with friends this summer.

For winter adventurers, the hotel is just across the pedestrian bridge from the ice rink and start of the Methow Valley's immaculately groomed ski and fat biking trails. The hotel features a Bike and Ski Wax room just for such outdoor activities.
