Summertime at the Mazama Country Inn offers many activities for the outdoor enthusiast. The days are warm, the nights are cool, and there's very little rain. We have experts on staff to help you plan the perfect day hike (don't forget your camera, deer and marmot sightings are quite common). The Pasayten Wilderness and North Cascades National Park offer miles of trails leading to lakes, waterfalls, wildflowers and wildlife. The Inn has mountain bikes for rent, or bring your own and ride for miles on the mountain trails. Horseback riding available nearby. Additional Trail Information. Methow

slower paced getaway, you can stroll the nature paths, delight in the exceptional
bird watching, or just read a book in the sitting room.

fishing, wildflowers, wildlife, all of these things are plentiful in the
fall and spring at the Mazama Country Inn. Springtime can be a very quiet
time at the Inn. Take a leisurely stroll or more ambitious hike through wildflowers. Bring binoculars
for bird watching. You can visit the quaint little western town of Winthrop
and do some shopping, or just walk along the boardwalk. If you need some excitement,
there is white water rafting. You can also catch some late season heli skiing
or back country skiing.
During the Fall we have a spectacular natural display of fall colors here in the valley. The days are often warm and yet the crowds are gone, so fall means some of the best hiking and mountain biking of the year. A perfect time for a retreat.
