Rolling Huts, Methow Valley

The lowdown: Posing like an alien wildlife herd in a meadow at the foothills of the Cascades, the sleek futuristic Rolling Huts are a cool alternative to cold-weather camping. The Methow Valley huts were designed by Seattle’s Olson Kundig Architects and are a far cry from your grandpa’s log cabin.

The stay: Six ultramodern huts come equipped with basic kitchen appliances and dishes, a fireplace and Wi-Fi. Each cabin sleeps four, with two modular sleeping platforms (read: giant building-block fun) and memory-foam mats; linens and towels are provided, but sleeping bags and blankets are not, so bring your own. Note that there’s no stove top, but grills are available at the common-use picnic shelter. A private portable toilet and faucet are located outside each hut, with shared full bathrooms and showers in a nearby barn (keep the chilly trek in mind if going in wintertime). 

The fun: A winter stay in the Methow lets you take advantage of the area’s abundant snowy fun, from one of the world’s longest cross-country ski trail networks to sledding, snowshoeing and fat biking. Fall and spring bring hiking, mountain biking, river rafting and sightseeing. And definitely take a stroll around the touristy town of Winthrop, super-fun with kids and decked out in full Wild West style.
