Welcome to Pipestone Canyon Ranch!
After looking at property all over North Central WA for a place to have as an escape and enjoy, we discovered Pipestone Canyon Ranch. It is tucked neatly away in a beautiful quiet little valley called Upper Beaver Creek. We would like to share our bit of heaven with those seeking a special place to enjoy and build memories.
Although it is just a few minutes drive from the town of Twisp, you can feel the peace and tranquility that Pipestone Ranch offers the minute you get out of your car. It is a place to come relax, enjoy and connect with your family and friends for your special event.
Pipestone is surrounded by working hay fields and rolling hills, with views of the Cascades in the distance making it a perfect setting for your event. Beaver Creek borders the property and gives an added peacefulness to the ranch as you can hear it in the distance welcoming you to the valley.
Pipestone Ranch offers a rustic, yet modern, setting with paved well-maintained access to the property. A large event building with ample area for inside use as well as expansive lawns surrounded by rail fences allow you to also enjoy the amazing backdrop that only nature can provide, if your preference is an outside setting. You are welcome to use the property and create your own special setting.
Please enjoy the pictures on our website of the Ranch and the facility. We welcome your questions and look forward to meeting and making new friends.
Pipestone Canyon Ranch is open year-round by appointment. Use of outdoor space is dependent on when winter arrives and spring comes, typically April thru October allow for an outdoor setting. The indoor space can be available anytime, contact us for details.
