Oroville lodge description
The Lodge at Palmer lake is situated on over 300 feet of waterfront on beautiful Palmer Lake in Okanogan county, WA. The Lodge is 4400 square feet fully furnished with 8 bedrooms, a huge screened-in porch, wrap-around deck with huge timbers, a massive stone fireplace, pool table, full kitchen and dining area and 3 new full size bathrooms with natural stone finishes. The kitchen has a dishwasher, microwave, gas range, granite countertops, slate floors and gorgeous custom cabinets.
Palmer lake is in Okanogan County, WA and covers 2100 acres, is about 5 miles long and 80 feet deep. It is surrounded by mountains, rolling hills, and orchards. Palmer Lake provides a myriad of outdoor opportunities throughout the year.
Swimming, waterskiing, wakeboarding, tubing - you name it! In summertime the water gets quite warm. In the wintertime many people get out on the lake for ice skating and ice fishing.
Palmer Lake has rainbow trout, kokanee salmon ,eastern brook trout, brown trout, Lahontan cutthroat trout, and black crappie. It is also well known by insiders for both large and smallmouth bass. There is also burbot, bluegill, northern pikeminnow, lake whitefish, and peamouth, yellow perch and walleye. Anglers are allowed to fish the lake year-round.
Palmer Lake Lodge is situated on 2.5 acres with 300+ feet of lake front. The local road to Loomis divides the property, with the lake on one side and the beach on the other. The beach is made of small smooth and flat stones. It is shallow enough for small kids to wade/swim safely close to shore but deep enough to allow for a boat tie-up off shore. There is a large anchor with a buoy and boat tie-up available.

Rejuvenating Nature and Luxury
Rejuvenating Nature and Luxury
The natural setting is as rejuvenating as ever, and then there's the renovated luxury interior. If you love wood in all its myriad uses, you're in for a treat as this building is rich with incredible works of wood in the siding, beams, floors, and millwork, both from the original construction and the new additions. Also, one of my epiphanies from this stay is that slate tile is absolutely the best material to step onto when you get out of the shower. Beautiful, warm, and quick drying. Love it. Bird watching is another great "activity" here. In my stroll around the property, I saw a Western Red Tanager and lots of Hummingbirds. And twice we had the awe inspiring experience of seeing, from a few meters' distance, huge Ospreys and White Tailed Eagles swoop down to the lake and grab themselves a fish. Of course their fishing skills far surpassed ours, but we did catch a few fish ourselves, and they tasted so good baked or fried the next day. Since it was warm, we also got to enjoy many swims in the fresh, clear lake. My attempt to water ski may have been lame, but there's got to be a first time for everything. So much fun, relaxation, laughs with friends and family...amazing vacation. I'm still on the high of the memories.

About the owner: We enjoy spending time with friends and family at the lake. On the water, waterskiing & wake surfing are big on my list.
Why the Owner Chose Oroville:
Sunshine, lakefront, historical location, smooth water, great fishing!
The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
The lodge has a rich history in the area, it is great to hear stories from old-timers in the area. We were able to contact the original owners and read through the guestbooks they kept over the years - dating back to the 1930s! We've invested heavily to update the place. If you come to stay, ask us to see the 'before' pictures of our remodel efforts.
