Things to do around Fisherman's Cove

The area surrounding Fisherman's Cove offers scenic drives, spectacular sunsets and long, lazy summer evenings.  Serious readers will enjoy breathing the pine-scented air, and soaking up the peace and quiet away from the noise of the big city.  Curlew Lake is a smooth, 5.5 mile long body of water that's ideal for water sports, with warm summer temperatures that are perfect for swimming, sunbathing and relaxing. 

 The surrounding area and country side also offer:

  • Biking—Rated as one of the 10 best in the U.S., the Golden Tiger Bicycle Route travels from Anacortes on the Washington Coast, over the scenic North Cascades Highway (Hwy. 20), through Winthrop and Republic, and on to it's final destination in Newport on the Idaho border.
  • Boating, water skiing and tubing—From four private boat launches and docks.
  • Cross country skiing and snowmobiling—Blanketed by snow November through February, the surrounding area offers an expanse of scenic trails with gentle to moderate slopes.  There are three groomed snowmobile routs on national forest land.  And we are open year round to serve you! 
  • Curlew's Ansorge Hotel Museum—Constructed in 1903 to house the rush of travelers on the Great Northern Railroad, the Ansorge Hotel Museum is the only old hotel still standing in Ferry County.  Open June through September on weekends from 1-5 p.m., tours through this lovely old hotel are free of charge.
  • Curlew's Old Swimming Hole—Swimming and picnicking for kids of all ages.
