In 1981, the Duck Brand was born as a family-owned-and-operated hotel and cantina. The "Duck", as it is know to regulars and locals, quickly evolved into the eclectic epicenter of the Methow Valley: a hangout for those seeking an alternative to the ordinary.
Upstairs from the cantina, is the five-room inn, overlooking main street in Winthrop, and the North Cascades Mountains, beyond. The rooms are either 1- or 2-Queen bed rooms, with private baths and balconies, which face southwest. Furnishings and amenities are country style. Casual and comfortable.
