Stay at FreeStone Inn

3.6 on January 11, 2017

We had a great stay in this winter wonderland. The only complaint is that one of the nights we stayed in a studio cabin and it was really cold! (not really insulated so the heat didn't stay in the cabin..

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for the review. We are sorry to hear that the cabin was chilly, with the sustained negative temperatures we had those past weeks, it can definitely be a battle to keep things warm. I hope the Front Desk was able to send out maintenance with additional heaters to help battle the chill.

Outstanding accommodations in a breathtakingly beautiful winter wonderland

We stayed at the Freestone Inn for four nights. We own an inn of our own in upstate New York so we hold places to a high standard when we are traveling. This was our first time in Mazama - and we were attending a family event for part of the time. The accommodations were excellent as was the service. We at at the restaurant three mornings and had dinner there on New Years Eve - all excellent. The staff went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable.

Very nice large independent home located near spa area. Great having ensuite bathrooms for each of the bedrooms. Some operational instructions could be improved (gas fireplace, dishwasher). Would rent again!

mid week getaway

Just down for a few days mid week have been here before numerous times stayed in the cabins with our dogs. As always clean, comfortable, quiet. Did not dine out at the lodge this time. Nice, relaxing.

Perfect retreat

We stayed with another couple during the week and could not have asked for a more pleasant, relaxing place to be. The fireplace in the room makes it cozy and comfortable. The food was amazing. The view cannot be described. It's our second stay there and will be back.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for the review! The only thing that could make the view prettier, is a few feet of snow, and we hope to be receiving that soon! We look forward to seeing you again soon!

A well kept secret for now!

We had a great midweek getaway here in October this year. We stayed in cabin one. It was well appointed, cozy with the sound of the gurgling Methow river flowing just outside. The Sandy Butte Bistro served delicious breakfasts and dinners with a view of the lake. The service was excellent and the staff friendly. We even ran into a couple of locals at the bar who filled us in on the history of the place. A memorable experience at a very reasonable price.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for the review, we hope to see you again soon!

Wonderful experience

4.6 on October 07, 2016

Everything was lovely. I do wish there was a simple breakfast option, such as oatmeal or pastries for those who don't eat a full breakfast.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for the review. We do strive to make every guest happy, so please don't hesitate to ask for something special, if we have it in the kitchen, we will be happy to make it for you!

My husband and I stayed in a cabin. The location is wonderful. The kitchen could use a little spiffing up as well as the bathroom floors. The restaurant had poor service food was mediocre. The hotel staff was wonderful!! Overall I would stay again. It was nice.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for the review. We have started upgrading the cabins kitchen floors and bathroom floors, and hope to have five done before Christmas! I am sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your dining experience, but do hope you give us another chance to impress in the future.

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.
