Curlew Lake house description

Located 18 miles South of the Canadian border and 8 mile north of the historic gold mining town of Republic. Home built with 72 windows, every window with a beautiful view of the lake, mountains, wildlife or many other sights.

We love the country and brought a little of the city when we added a spa area downstairs. Who could resist a morning tan and facial before an afternoon hike or horse ride, or? So much to offer, call now for booking reservations or more info on our area. Keep in mind a wonderful place for artists, photographers or writers to create. Contact us soon for your year-round vacation retreat.

NE Washington near Republic & Merritt Field Airport.

Other Activities: Parasailing, horseshoes, shopping, boating, wildlife viewing, spas, kayaking, snowmobiling, fishing, ATV's and dirt bikes, birding, fossil hunting, gold panning and rock climbing.

Republic is a historic productive gold mining town located in the northeast corner of Washington state, in Ferry County. Although off the beaten path, the rewards are too many to list. The views throughout the Okanogan Highlands are truly spectacular, the wildlife is abundant... its like going back 100 years to a simpler time.

Our home overlooks the 8 mile length of gorgeous Curlew Lake from the north end. The lake is a great place for recreational fishing and boating. We provide four kayaks for our guest's use.

In downtown Republic you can explore Stonerose Center and learn of the geologic history of this amazing area.

Winding nearby is the scenic Kettle River, which flows up and down from British Columbia into Washington and back up again. A very popular place for fishing, wildlife viewing including Big Horn Sheep, Moose and Bear, as well as tubing for many fun going families.

Ranches nearby, like Diamond K provide horseback riding adventures. Go to Swan Lake and see (and hear) the Loons as their calls provide a wonderful ambiance for all who take the time to listen. Enjoy.

If you like to snow Ski: Chewelah to the east and Sitzmark to the northwest are each within about a 45 minute drive.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: The Spirit of Curlew Lake is my canvas on which i have painted with passion for over a decade. The home is welcoming, peaceful and easy for all to find comfort. Its a constant in my life and grounding for me, yet also a work in progress, as we always strive to improve the guest experience. I studied the arts in college and brought all that I learned back to my hometown, Curlew, where I graduated high school and made lifelong friends. This place is special. Glad I can share it with you.

Why the Owner Chose Curlew Lake:
I designed and built the Spirit of Curlew Lake (with help from some wonderful people). It was a risky thing to do, at the time the largest home in the county, but it brought more investment to this far flung community and boosted tourism in the poorest county in the state.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The home has a spiritual quality hard to describe but discovered by all who come here. The views through 72 windows are spectacular. The surrounding landscape is breathtaking and the wildlife is a constant source of wonder.
