About Twisp

The community of Twisp sits in the eastern foothills that lead up to the Cascade Mountains. Located right at the confluence of the Twisp and Methow rivers, when you visit there you are perfectly positioned for some great outdoor recreational possibilities. In the summer, the weather is warm and inviting and during the winter months there is plenty of snow that’s perfect for everything from snowmobiling to enjoying the view. The town is known as the “heart of the Methow Valley” and that really means something. Twisp is large enough to offer several eating and lodging options, but small enough to feel like you really are getting away from it all.
