The Rolling Huts in Methow Valley are the ultimate glamping in Washington. Truly a luxury camping experience with a simplicity of design that makes you never want to leave. I personally wouldn’t call it camping. The huts offer four walls, heat, and other comforts, but the accessibility and views of nature there give you all the benefits of camping. Designed by the famous Olson Kundig Architects, but without the luxury price tag, you do not want to miss these.

The Rolling Huts are among the Best Glamping in Washington. You do not want to miss this architecturally designed luxury camping experience.

Where are the Rolling Huts Glamping in Washington State?

The Rolling Huts are located just outside of Winthrop Washington in Methow Valley.

Getting to this Washington Glamping site

Your route may vary depending on the time of year!! If you are not from the Seattle area, you may be unaware that the North Cascades Highway closes in the winter. It had closed down due November 10th just before we went to visit the week after.

Directions to the Rolling Huts Glamping WA

Google Maps directions to “Rolling Huts” took us right there. There are many areas without cell service. So, downloading the maps may be a good call if you are unfamiliar with the area!

During non-winter months it is more scenic and about an hour faster to take the North Cascades Highway through the North Cascades National Park. This is highway 20 that cuts through Newhalem and drives by the incredible Diablo Lake.

During Winter season you will need to take Highway 2 and then head North on the 97 at Wenatchee. At Pateros you will keep left to go on Highway 153 and continue on (eventually becoming highway 20) until you reach Winthrop!

Winthrop Washington

Downtown Winthrop Washington Rolling Huts

There is so much to do here outside of glamping in Washington. As you roll into Winthrop, you’ll be able to admire mountain views as well as a river. This town is the quaint and cute and has an old western theme to the town. In fact, Winthrop is home to the oldest legal saloon in Washington State named Three Fingered Jack’s Saloon.

Dining Options near your Glamping Experience

Woodstone Pizzeria is conveniently located at the Rolling Huts if you don’t want to drive anywhere. We grabbed a beer here when we got unpacked to kick off our relaxing stay here.

East 20 Pizza is where we grabbed dinner the first night. There was outdoor seating with fire to stay warm at the table and it had a really cozy feel. Plus the pizza was delicious. We wanted to try something different and ordered their Thai pizza and I’m still thinking about it.

Carlos 1800 Mexican Grill and Cantina is where we grabbed dinner the second night. Huge portions of yummy mexican food really hit the spot for us.

Copper Glance is where we ended our night for a cocktail. This place was lovely and the cocktail chefs were giving us samples of their latest experiments since it was a slow night for them.

Old Schoolhouse Brewery was closed while we were in town, but I’d definitely recommend checking it out if its open and you like a good brew!

Rolling Huts Rental Details

When you drive in to the lot, there is no need to stop at a front desk. Your glamping hut number and lockbox instructions will be emailed to you before arrival! Park in the lot and grab a provided cart to transport your luggage to your assigned hut!

There are 6 huts total! We stayed in hut number 5 and loved it. They are all the exact same design, but 5 was farther away from the parking lot. Number 6 would be a great option as well as you will only have neighbors on one side.

The Rolling Huts look isolated and tucked away, but they are pretty close together! We barely noticed we had neighbors and the glamping pods are designed so that your view is of the mountains in the distance.

Restoration and Reclaimed Elements of this Glamping Experience

The area where the Rolling Huts sit used to be an old RV park, and you can actually still see the posts that mark each spot, but a field has grown in now. The area is a flood plain meadow in an alpine river valley and we watched as deer meandered through the field throughout the day.

The huts are constructed simply. Designer Tom Kundig had these constructed out of reclaimed steel, with plywood interiors and a cork floor.
