Discover the Area Around Priest Lake Houses

Have you longed to discover the pristine beauty of a virgin forest? If the answer is yes, you will need to spend a day away from Priest Lake houses to visit the Roosevelt Grove of Ancient Cedars. This ancient forest is on the west side of Priest Lake where visitors can see trees that are four to 12 feet diameter and 150 feet tall. The majority of the original trees were destroyed in a fire in 1926. While most of the trees are only around 800 years old, there are still some to see that are 2,000 to 3,000 years old. It is well worth a trip from your enticing lake house to see these natural wonders. Pack a picnic from your kitchen and enjoy the picnic area surrounded by these magnificent giants. The area is open summer through fall every day and there is no charge.

If you have come to rent a lake house in the summer, you can splash around in the lake while swimming. You can also rent a boat, canoe or kayak and take a leisurely trip around the lake on a pontoon boat. With more than 70 miles of shoreline, you will never feel crowded and the views from the lake are exquisite. Biking is available along the Lakeshore Trail where you can stop for a picnic lunch along the way. Fishermen can catch big Mackinaw trout to cook on the BBQ grill on private decks. Need more adventure on your vacation? Think about running the rapids on Priest River or rock climbing near the lake. Hunters enjoy fall in the Priest Lake area as it is home to whitetail and mule deer, elk, moose and black bear. After a day in the crisp air, come home to a blazing fire and a hot toddy.
