Lodge Room 2

5 on June 08, 2016

This is a great room for a couple. It is situated with a fantastic view of the lake. A great room to relax out on the deck and watch the resident bald eagle fish the lake. A lovely stay with nice amenities, great scenery, and excellent staff.

We've been staying at the Freestone since 2003 and we love it. Because we have a dog, we rent the cabins. Cabins are rustic and that is the way we like it. The Freestone personnel are helpful and courteous. Marvelous place for rest and relaxation. Terrific food too! Highly recommended!

Splendid Isolation

3.2 on April 21, 2016

This is a fine establishment which gives attention to detail. The room was very comfortable and the grounds nice to walk. The pond (they call it a lake, but it is not big enough, I think) behind the inn is very peaceful. We came off-season and so were in a mostly empty inn. The staff were extremely helpful and attentive. The dining menu is limited but very high quality. Missing from the menu were any "light" options (salads the the like). This is not an issue for a single meal but if you're there longer, one wishes one could mix in lighter fare. The bathrooms in the inn rooms are interesting. The have a separate shower from tub and the tub is of the ordinary variety. The two items that could be improved upon was lighting (pretty dim in there) and low water pressure (even with a water-saving shower head). I would recommend the management consider installing a private (and discrete) water tower to improve the water pressure situation. On the other hand, the 2nd floor room had a cathedral ceiling, a gas (turn-on) fireplace, and a private porch. Nice. Had a fridge but would have been nice to see a microwave for leftovers (the dining room meal portions are generous). The Wi-Fi was spotty. The staff admitted it was slow but it was so limited that we never really got past unreliability to complain about slowness. Overall, a very nice getaway place high in the Methow valley.

Thank you for the review. Although we do have several salads on the menu, please know that we would be happy to make something special for you too, if we have the ingredients on hand.

A few minor details with the cabin did not distract from the wonderful experience. Very nice area and people. Will come again!

Winter Bliss

4.4 on February 08, 2016

Stayed for 3 nights the first week of February. It was like being part of a private club...very exclusive, fantastic service, beautiful property. Loved it. Our room was large and comfortable, gas fireplace. Mid-week dining menus was limited but excellent, and the full dining menu beginning Thursday evening was very, very nice. Staff all exceptional.

Love it!

We love this place. Love it! This year was our 3rd visit in a row, and the room was as perfect as the first year. Cozy and spacious room and bathroom -both in perfect condition, awsome views to the lake, private terrace, comfortable bed, quality liners, inroom fireplace, quality bedding, and so on. Seriously, the perfect place for your getaway. This year has inaugurated breakfast service a la carte. Even better!

Innkeeper Response

Stayed in a cabin. Loved all the snow and easy access to snowshoeing. Service was great. Loved the breakfast at the restaurant.

Great cabins!

3.8 on January 26, 2016

The cabins are nothing fancy but are very nice and well maintained. We really like the quiet and woodsy atmosphere the are has, and you can ski right out the front door. We've come here the past 6 years to ski, and will keep coming back.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for the review, we look forward to hosting you for many more years to come!

Signature Dish

Creamy Pasta Aurora
Perfectly cooked linguine tossed in a creamy Marsala sauce, crowned with a fire roasted tomato & red pepper sauce, and served with large herbed meatballs. The surprising composition of two sauces in one dish creates a satisfying juxtaposition of flavor sensations.
