With a population of about 1700, Priest River is nestled between the Pend Oreille River and the Priest River, 75 miles south of Canada, seven miles east of the Washington border and it’s a short drive to Priest Lake. Surrounded by the majestic Selkirk mountains, including Schweitzer Ski Resort, and known for its four-season climate, Priest River’s recreational activities include golfing, fishing, hiking Gisborne Mountain, boating, hunting and skiing…all within a short distance from town.
Priest River was born of the logging industry, often referred to as “the town that logs built.” Logging continues today as one of the town’s economic strengths. On the last Saturday in July, the town continues to pay tribute to its history by holding the annual “Timber Days Festival” with logging competitions, a car cruise through historic downtown, and a huckleberry pancake breakfast.
If you are looking for a place that’s far from the stress and stimulants of the big city – a “winter wonderland” and a “summer sensation” with breathtaking scenery and every recreational activity at your feet – then look no further. Priest Lake has a part of everyone’s dream and something to fit everyone’s budget.
