Love the Freestone Inn!

4.8 on September 12, 2017

So happy we decided to stay 3 nights instead of 2 at this lovely lodge. We played, we hiked, we lounged by the pool and we ate dinner there every night. Before we started our daily activities, we sat on our deck, with our morning coffee, enjoying the view of the grounds and peaceful little lake. The staff is the best - informative, helpful and very kind. Already looking forward to our next visit.

Another great weekend

3.6 on September 07, 2017

Weekend was great. The pool was amazing since it was so hot this year. Floors in the cabins were swept up but were very dirty so don't think they had been mopped in awhile.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for the review. I am sorry to hear that the floors were not cleaned to our standard. I will pass on the information to our house keeping manager and we will correct that immediately.

Mike/Jim's stay - fabulous

4.6 on August 02, 2017

Our stay at Freestone was the first time for we were attending the Methow Festival of chamber music, which was also fabulous. From the time we checked in till the time we left all was fine and the view from our 2nd floor room number 7 was outstanding. Recommend to all especially those who shop on Purple Roofs.

Peaceful elegance

4.8 on July 19, 2017

Mountain lodge in the tradition of the Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite with a friendly attentive staff, you feel that it could be home. Five star food and a great wine list. A cozy bar for a night cap on the patio under a canopy of stars and a breeze whispering in the pines.

Wonderful place to stay!

4.6 on July 14, 2017

Dinner on Sunday night was only Happy Hour specials, and restaurant was closed Monday and Tuesday nights (our only nights there). But what we experienced of the restaurant was really nice. Great view and atmosphere. We stayed in a King room which had a fireplace and private can be a little loud out there due to the proximity of the restaurant and other rooms, but there weren't many people around. Friendly people, good wine. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub at various times. A small, quaint place with some really nice touches. We loved it.

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.
