Finding your way to the Chewuch Inn is easy, we sit just two blocks off of Highway 20 just South of the Methow River bridge. Use the directions and maps below to make getting here easier. During the winter months, visitors flock to the Methow Valley for it’s incredible X-country ski trail system and Winter activities.
