The Vista Grande' Ranch, located in the beautiful Methow Valley, provides four season recreational opportunities in a private ranch setting. The ranch comprises over 650 acres with numerous panoramic views and is adjacent to national forest land.
The 4300 square foot log home with 1800 square feet of cedar decks, is ideally suited for larger groups who want to enjoy a rustic retreat in a completely relaxed environment, (3 to 5 couples are perfect). You may wish to participate in a number of activities on or near the ranch.
Some of Washington State's best Steelhead fishing is five minutes away. Daytrips on horseback are located in Twisp (12 miles north of us) You can go hiking and mountain biking on the ranch or on nearby SunMountain trail system. Take a swim in the pond, lay in the sun, or just sit back and relax on the shaded decks, around the home and watch the horses and deer grazing on the hillside.
The beautifully landscaped lawn with a large octagonal cedar gazebo make the perfect setting for visiting and having a barbecue with friends. In the winter, snowmobiling, cross-country and alpine skiing are all available close by. There is an excellant sledding/tubing hill behind the house.
The custom-built, log home is made from huge spruce logs. There are private rooms for five couples as well as roll-out beds and futons in semi-private areas with enough beds to sleep an additional six adults if required. The lawn area is expansive, landscaped, and well shaded.
The house has three floors with the following descriptions....
LEVEL ONE has a stone hearth, three bedrooms, a large bathroom, a recreation room with pool table and TV/VCR. Two of the bedrooms have adjoining sunrooms just a few steps away from a large hot tub. The laundry is also on level one.
THE MAIN LEVEL is all log construction and has a large fully-equipped kitchen and dining room. The great room boasts a 25 foot cathedral ceiling, all glass southern exposure, woodstove with glass door and stone hearth. There is one large bathroom on this level with a bedroom across from it.

All stairs and railings are made from logs for a truly awesome appearance. The house is furnished with hand-crafted log furniture for a unique, rustic, yet comfortable appearance. We invite you, your friends & family, to make our ranch your home while you explore the many recreational opportunities found in the Methow Valley.
Your Hosts, Scott & Susie Larson
