The North Cascades
In my opinion, one of the prettiest areas in all of Washington state is the North Cascades. It is breathtakingly beautiful at every turn, more hiking trails than you'll ever have time for, and feels remote, yet is easy enough to get to. Our first encounter with the Freestone Inn was a couple days after our son, Asher passed away. Unaware of our circumstance, we were greeted with a warm welcome, a friendly smile and a cozy room complete with a large soaking tub, stone fireplace and lovely views of the property. Since then, we have made it an annual tradition to return to this special place year after year. The Freestone Inn is located on Wilson Ranch on a gorgeous piece of property. We have been fortunate enough to visit the property during the Summer, Fall and Winter and there are different things we enjoy about each season in the North Cascades.
Although, the majority of our time is spent hiking and soaking up all the gorgeous scenery, we always carve out time to sit on our deck and just enjoy the view.
Adding Jasper, our busy boy who is always on the go added a new level of fun and adventure. Last time we visited Jasper was not even two months old and stayed in one place a lot easier.
Recently under new management the Freestone Inn has made some changes for the better. They have introduced Happy Hour, added some outdoor seating and eliminated the restrictive hours on the pool and hot tub.
We love returning again and again to the Freestone Inn, it is a fun place for both couples and families alike. We are so happy we stumbled upon it a few years ago when our hearts were heavy and all we wanted was a place of refuge.
