Our family (My husband, myself and our two dogs) visited the Winthrop area the last weekend of May 2009 and stayed at the Hoot N' Holler cabin at Spring Creek Ranch.
It was fantastic!
Note that it is a small cabin so you need to be very comfortable with who you are with. The cabin was very clean, the bed was sooo comfortable, the surroundings peaceful and they allowed pets! The kitchen was stocked with a coffee maker, dishes, pots and pans, a refrigerator and oven. Their mugs were by a local artist and they supplied delicious coffee from the Methow Valley.
The nightly rate is compareable to other lodging options in Winthrop, but with the Hoot N' Holler you get great, friendly customer service, a standalone structure, peace and privacy. No shared walls, no one coming in or out at all times.
We will definitely be returning to this cabin in Winthrop. Thanks Sarah, Daren and the Spring Creek Ranch!

My husband and I got married here a week ago and had a fantastic experience. We spent months looking for a suitable venue for our destination wedding and were so happy to find Spring Creek Ranch in Winthrop, it really was the absolute ideal venue for us. We wanted a place where we could have a large crowd (180 - 200 easily), and where we could spend a few days, rather than just a few hours, enjoying the company of all of our friends and family. Ideally, we wanted something on a river or near a body of water, with beautiful scenery for a backdrop, at a reasonable price. We were also very willing to do a lot of the planning and execution ourselves, so we didn't need a full-service wedding facility, more just a great space to make an event happen, and license to make it as festive as we could for the entire weekend.
SCR fit the bill perfectly. A 60 acre ranch situated on the shore of the Methow River, set against a North Cascades backdrop, it is breathtakingly beautiful. A tiny spring creek runs right through the grass next to the main farmhouse, and there are plenty of big weeping willows as well a few rustic barns and outbuildings, which add photographic interest to the already beautiful surroundings. There is also a good sized pond, perfect for swimming during hot days. The place was teeming with life while we were there- hawks circling overhead, deer grazing in the fields all weekend long, salmon spawning in the stream just a short walk away from the farmhouse.
Sarah, the ranch owner/ caretaker, rents the ranch for a three-night package deal which is priced very reasonably and includes lodging for 15 as well as porta potty and wash basin rental for guests. The lodging includes a large farmhouse (a beautiful, comfortable place to stay), a smaller log cabin just across the field, and a small studio a few miles away, perfect for the couple getting married or for parents of the bride or groom. (note: each lodging facility is also available as a vacation rental. My husband and I actually got engaged at the Hoot n' Holler, the studio cabin, on a prior Methow Valley vacation). Tent camping is available on site, and there are plenty of accommodations within walking distance of the ranch, in downtown Winthrop.
All in all we found Sarah to be incredibly accommodating, flexible, responsive to my many requests, and exceptionally easy to work with (she even accommodated our desires for our pooch, Lexi, to come along on the wedding journey and stay on site). Sarah also has a lot of contacts and wedding vendors in the Methow Valley that can hook you up with whatever your heart desires for your wedding, and happily shares them.
Some things to note- the venue is not a full-service wedding venue. For example, there are no tables, chairs etc. on site, nor is catering offered, nor are linen or dish rentals available on-site. If you want a more inclusive wedding package which includes those things, this is probably not the place for you. On the other hand, if you are comfortable handling your own rentals, finding a mobile catering company, and handling a lot of the details (or have hired a wedding planning professional who can handle these details), then this would be a great fit for you. All in all, we had an amazing experience, and will forever have a particularly fond place in our heart for Spring Creek Ranch. We would highly recommend it as a venue to anyone considering a DIY (do-it-yourself) wedding in the Methow Valley.

My wife and I just had an amazingly wonderful wedding at Spring Creek Ranch. We've been traveling to the Methow for skiing and hiking for the past 13 years and knew we wanted to get married in the valley. This past winter, we skied by the ranch and took a brochure and knew this was going to be our place. Our beautiful outdoor wedding was better than we ever dreamed it could be and we feel so lucky we got to get married at SCR.
The ranch is a big beautiful expanse of land that is peaceful, comfortable, & filled with wildlife. Along with the idyllic setting of the ranch, we were blown away by the ranch hand, proprietor, wedding coordinator and all around amazing person Sarah Berns! She is a force of nature, capable, competent and compassionate. You'll want to move to the Methow and have her be your new best friend! Our wedding felt so special and so personal like we were getting married at a relatives house. She took a lot of time with us, helping us create the vision of our wedding, answering questions and giving practical advice. It was important to us to use as many local vendors as possible and she was able to hook us up with not only talented professionals but some of the kindest people we've ever met. She helped with so many aspects of our Friday night welcome BBQ, Sat. ceremony and reception set up and Sunday breakfast that it isn't possible to list it all.
Lodging was easy to coordinate. Our family and friends were delighted with the Ranch House, so cozy and comfortable and the ability to walk from the lodges close by. We stayed in the Ranch Cabin which offered privacy while being able to walk easily back and forth to the ranch. We had a few hardy guests that enjoyed camping on the property and one RVer.
There are so many photo ops on the property between the beautiful trees, lawn, fields, house, old barn, and rivers. Our guests enjoyed the town of Winthrop, the farmer's market in Twisp, and hiking in the area.
Since it was a DYI wedding, it was probably significantly more work that getting married at a full service facility. But, we got not only what we wanted and how we wanted it, we also got an intimate, personal weekend for our guests and us and, more importantly, we feel like we got a piece of the Methow community in Spring Creek Ranch. A community that is all heart and beauty.

My husband and I got married at the Spring Creek Ranch this past summer and highly recommend it. We found the Spring Creek Ranch after searching for a destination wedding location in Central/Eastern Washington. The Spring Creek Ranch had everything we were looking for- a beautiful outdoor venue where we could host several events over the course of the weekend, in easy walking distance from a town with lodging options at a variety of price points, and camping available on site. Winthrop had the added bonus of having easy access to a great network of trails and mountains for us and our more active friends with a town with plenty of things to see and do for our more urban relatives. We knew our pick was a success when our guests stopped asking us why we had picked Winthrop and the Spring Creek Ranch but instead asked how we had found such an incredible place.
It was definitely not easy to plan a wedding from a few thousand miles from where we live in Alaska. Sarah, the Ranch caretaker, was incredibly helpful and made us feel at home. She was incredibly responsive, easy to get in touch with, and answered all of our questions promptly. While she offered great suggestions for local vendors, we appreciated that there was no pressure to use any specific vendor. We also appreciated her patience in dealing with occasional guests who contacted her directly, helping point them in the right direction.
During the wedding weekend itself, Sarah was instrumental in making sure everything went so smoothly. We really appreciated her presence on site at all of the events and the way she was always pitching in where needed. It was often those little details that we hadn't even considered and that she took care of that made the weekend run so smoothly. Her level of service went above and beyond when she helped us get in touch with a local gardener in the area when our plan for flowers fell through the day before the wedding and helped set up a fire pit, complete with wood, for the reception after party. We highly recommend the Spring Creek Ranch for anyone who wants a beautiful site for an outdoor, more DIY-style wedding.

We just stayed for the second time in the Owl's Nest Cabin rented by the Spring Creek Ranch. It's a wonderful, tiny, but super cute and comfortable cabin deep in the woods close to Winthrop. It is very private nestled in a ponderosa pine forest. It's clean, remodeled and has everything 2 people would need. It also has fast wi-fi. It's very reasonably priced and they take dogs. Although I have not stayed there, their other properties look very nice as well. They are larger, private, and within walking distance of the center of Winthrop. I will definitely stay there again.

Spring Creek Ranch was the site of our daughter's wedding on a beautiful weekend in the Methow Valley. The wedding was in the adjacent green field and the expansive lawn served as the perfect spot for the dance floor and tables for 200 guests. The small stream provided hours of fun for the kiddos and the shade of the huge trees was welcome during the warm day. Sarah was so very helpful both before and during the wedding, prompt in reply to inquiries and flexible. The ranch house was a hub of activity while the bride and bridesmaids got ready for the big day. It was a perfect place for the parents to stay during the weekend. We are grinning from ear to ear as we remember the weekend. It could not have been a better place for the casual outdoor wedding!

My wife and I were lucky enough to get married at Spring Creek Ranch in July. To say our wedding was amazing just doesn't give it justice. We wanted to have our wedding outside, we knew that much, but we were not sure where to do it. We wanted a location where our guests could relax and soak up the surroundings. Spring Creek Ranch was absolutely ideal, wide open lawn, lots of additional acreage, borders a river, creeks running through the property. a pond (with trout), old barn, historic farmhouse and one of the largest weeping willows I have ever seen. There is so much room, our guests were able to explore, walk around the ranch and even fly fish on the property.
The best feature of the Spring Creek Ranch is very hard to explain, but it is just the feeling you have while you are there... its comfortable, you almost feel at home, and a lot of that has to do with Sarah, the ranch caretaker. She was so incredibly helpful and accommodating. She was very responsive and put us in touch with some great vendors in the area... we used about everyone she suggested. She was even there on our wedding day, showing people where to park, working with the vendors, answering guests questions, all the details that we didn't want to worry about. Our guests still tell us, months later, how amazing the wedding weekend was and how the site was instrumental.
Spring Creek Ranch is a unique family owned property, which allows for more creativity and personal input when designing and planning your wedding. Also, it is surprisingly cost effective, considering what comes with the ranch. We highly recommend Spring Creek Ranch for an outdoor wedding, we wouldn't change a thing if we could do it all over again.

We first stayed at Spring Creek Ranch for a weekend vacation. While we were there we fell in love with the absolutely gorgeous venue and with Sarah's amazing attention to detail. When we were engaged a year later, Spring Creek Ranch was at the top of our list for venues.
Ultimately we chose Spring Creek Ranch for the following reasons:
-beautiful venue, with amazing trees which we really wanted because we wanted to get married under an epicly beautiful tree
-Sarah, great communication, flexibility and attention to detail
-affordability, we rented it for the full weekend at the price we would have paid to rent a place for an afternoon at traditional fancy wedding venue
-location, walking distance to Winthrop meant we didn't have to worry about how to get guests home if they partied hard
-extremely flexible, no requirements to use specific vendors for anything and a reasonable sound policy allowing for the late night party we wanted.
All in all, we would highly recommend Spring Creek Ranch.

We were married at Spring Creek Ranch this summer and have slept in all of the options: the Ranch House, Ranch Cabin and the Owl's Nest cabin, the ranch house, cabin and property and the owl's nest cabin and property are beautifully maintained and squeaky clean.
I would recommend any / all of the accommodations to anyone and the Ranch House as a venue for any couple planning a wedding in beautiful Winthrop in the Methow Valley, unbeatable location and Sarah is excellent to work with!
