History

The Virtual Museum – Northport, established in the late 1800’s, has a rich history. The Northport Washington Historical Society has a virtual museum that “… is a photographic history of Northport and the surrounding area. Over the years, the Northport Historical Society has collected numerous photographs from various sources. They are housed at the Northport Museum and are not seen by many people. This ‘Virtual Museum‘ is an effort to make these images widely accessible. This is intended as an educational project and it is hoped that making these photos available will help people learn about and preserve the history of this area.”

For those who wish to spend an afternoon of shopping, our neighboring towns of Rossland and Trail in British Columbia, Canada offer many unique stores and boutiques. ***We suggest using credit cards that do not have international fees. Using cash almost never gets you as good of an exchange rate and exchanging American currency for Canadian currency can be a bit of a hassle depending on day of the week and location. ***BE SURE TO BRING YOUR PASSPORT!

Ferraro Foods, A boutique grocery store in Rossland, B.C. that offers a larger selection of foods (both produce and packaged goods) than our local store. But you’ll need a passport to get there! If you plan on visiting Rossland, keep in mind this is an option for grocery shopping. BE AWARE that not all produce is allowed across the US Border. Ask a customs agent at the border for a list of grocery items not allowed back in the US after acquiring from or bringing them to Canada.

Fishing

By volume, the Columbia is the fourth-largest river in the U.S., and it has the greatest flow of any North American river draining into the Pacific. Several dams along the Columbia River prevent our area from getting the Salmon and Steelhead runs/migrations, however, White sturgeon, which take 15 to 25 years to mature, typically migrate between the ocean and the upstream habitat several times during their lives. The sturgeon that occupy these waters are landlocked. The primary native fish that anglers target in these waters is the Redband Rainbow Trout. These are hearty, strong, native trout that are a thrilling favorite for visiting fly fisherman and gear fisherman alike. Other species of non-native fish occupying the waters of the Upper Columbia include Walleye and Northern Pike. Less commonly caught but present species include Mountain Whitefish, Burbot, Brook Trout, Brown Trout, Cutthroat Trout, Cutbow Trout and Northern Pike Minnow. 

More information on fishing in the Pacific Northwest can be found at the Washington State Department Fish and Wildlife website (click here), where you can view Fishing Reports, Stocking Reports & Fish Counts, and  The Weekender Report.

Hunting

Northeast Washington is the home to a vast wilderness populated with Elk, Deer (White Tail and Mule), Bear, Sheep, Moose, Turkey, Waterfowl, and other small game. We have a yearly contingent of hunters that stay with us as their home away from home while pursuing their game of choice. We invite you to come stay with us during hunting season and make some memories! Lazy Daze Retreats does not currently partner with any hunting guides, but there are several resources available on the Washington State Fish and Wildlife website. There you can learn about Regulations & Seasons, Game Species, and The Weekender Report.

Boating

The Upper Columbia River and Lake Roosevelt can be great for boating and water activities. However, the various activities that are available depend on the time of year and runoff conditions. IF YOU ARE ONE OF OUR GUESTS and wish to know river conditions for water skiing, wakeboarding, tubing, kayaking or paddle boarding while visiting us, we suggest that you call first to be informed about the conditions.
