The cabin we had here was extremely clean and updated. The fireplace was probably constructed during the 1930's-1940's when the cabin was built was beautifully done and worked great. Even there was a nice television was available we never turned it on. My wife and I spend our time walking the trails and the beach, then sat in front of...

My husband and I have stayed at Elkin's Resort in late August 2015 and August 2016. Our first visit was during the fires and the skies were smokey. We were still impressed with the Resort and returned year later under beautiful sunny skies. The gracious hospitality, spectacular location, sweet log cabins, and star-filled night skies are not to be missed....

My husband and I just got back from a two day 10 year anniversary getaway at Elkins Resort. This was our first time at Elkins.

Our family rented a cabin for a week and we camped nearby. We really enjoyed hanging out in their comfy cabin and sharing the pontoon boat for a day. The setting is lovely, the cabin well appointed and the staff is very friendly. I highly recommend it for a family vacation.

Our cabin was lake front. These cabins are rustic, clean and charming! This is a perfect place to relax with a good book during the off season. We are looking forward to a return visit in the fall.

Our family met here for games and fun in the snow. The cabins are cozy and relaxing. Inviting wood burning fireplaces and resort owners keep the exterior wood bin stocked at your cabin. We had the right amount if snow for sledding and hiking at the resort.

I had heard about Priest Lake for years and finally got to see it for myself. It was way bigger and more beautiful than I imagined. Surprisingly pristine and undeveloped. We had a 2 bedroom cabin at Elkins right on the lake. The cabin was rustic in a good way, very clean and comfortable. Felt like a real getaway from...

As we all grew up in Spokane but settled elsewhere, my mother started this tradition at Elkins to lure me and my adult siblings back to the Northwest once a year, at least.
