It is, as much, a house as a work of industrial art. The house is built around a large concrete water-way, which was originally part of the Winthrop water supply. That bunker is now the floor of an upper bedroom, as well as the walls of the living room and a second bedroom on the main floor. It is a hand-built, and handmade riverfront pleasure.

Located about 1/3 mile downstream of downtown Winthrop and its iconic old west boardwalk.... it is close, yet private. This is a "one of a kind experience" not to be passed over.

There are two bedrooms The first bedroom includes a queen bed and the second a queen and a bunk bed. The main-floor master has it's own bath, and outside entrance overlooking the river. Full kitchen, internet, unique wood stove, heated floors, patio with picnic table and small propane grill. And if you need a little more room, there is another wondrous house, for friends, called, River Nest. Check it out.

Loved unique character of George's home. The lock box was difficult to open and I am not sure that floors were really cleaned as there were a few times I wiped the floor and it was dirty. We also saw around 5 big spiders in the kitchen and bathroom. But overall it was an enjoyable home. We'd like to see about staying closer to town next time we visit Winthrop.

Everything was completely perfect! The two kitchen sinks were fantastic, the patio was a wonderful place to enjoy our breakfast or a game of Clue before the day got too hot, and the entire layout was very space efficient and welcoming. We really appreciated the metal work and other touches that made the place feel special as well as the three patio areas. It would be nice to have a place to hang a hand towel in the master bathroom. We were also wondering if there's a place to recycle glass. We saw recycling for plastics and metal, but not glass so we just brought that home for our recycling. We were curious about it, though. We had a great experience and look forward to our return!

This is a stylish cabin built into the hillside and hanging over the Methow River a short walk from town. The owner (and builder) has designed and decorated the place very tastefully with lots of concrete and iron, etc. and lots of thoughtful touches. This is clearly a loved place. The master bedroom is much bigger than expected and was comfortable. The kitchen is generally well stocked. (HInt: the silverware is in a secret drawer to the side of the island, and the skillets are hanging on the wall around the corner in the living room). There is a small but functional BBQ. Although you share a parking lot with the pizza place (reasonably good food), the cabin is built down into the hillside and behind fences so you will have no violation of your privacy.
