  • Are the Sunflower Resort cabins pet-friendly?
    The Sunflower Resort is extremely pet friendly. We allow each party to bring two dogs with them. We have very high expectations for the cleanliness and upkeep of your cabin, so charge extra for those bringing dogs. For 1-2 dogs, for 1 or 2 nights, there is a 100.00 charge. For 1-2 dogs for 3 or 4 nights, there is a 150.00 charge. For 1-2 dogs for 5 or more nights, there is a 200.00 charge. Dog Rules We expect that your dogs be: well-behaved and tidy, to refrain from barking, to be on leash when outside, to be with you at all times unless extremely accustomed to crating, to stay off the house linens in the bedrooms and couch areas, and for their owners to “scoop the poop.”

  • How far is the walk to downtown Winthrop?
    The walking trail will take you right to downtown Winthrop in less than 10-12 minutes. Pick up the trail right from our Wellness Center and head toward the Winthrop library. You'll cross over White Avenue, wind around the Winthrop Rink, walk just east of the Spring Creek Ranch pasture, and onward to the walking bridge spanning the Methow River. When on the bridge notice the gorgeous backdrop of the snow-capped Gardner Mountain, Winthrop's iconic view. Stop to enjoy the confluence of the Chewuch and Methow Rivers from this bridge. When the river is high because of rapid snow melt, notice the green color of the Methow River and the browner hues of the Chewuch River water, as they come together at this Confluence. All your downtown Winthrop destinations start 250 feet from the walking trail's end. After walking along the boardwalks of town in a northeasterly direction, you cross another pedestrian-only suspension bridge-the Sa Teekh Wa (meaning: many salmon). The Sa Teekh Wa Trail, on the other side of the bridge, is a mile long out-and-back interpretive trail along the Chewuch River.
