At suggestion of Voyagaire Houseboats we made reservation at Oveson's Pelican Lake Resort. Formerly an AmiericInn and then Gateway Lodge it has been renamed under newe ownership. Oveson's are the operators of the historic Kettle Falls Hotel. Reservation via phone was smooth but they required a 30% immediate charge on our three rooms (2 Kings and one 2-queen bed). Check-in was smooth. Room was spotless and large but funny thing was both King rooms (219 and 119) were handicap accessible. Nice for my somewhat physically disabled wife though with flip down shower bench but toilet was too tall. Basic cableTV channels (last TV for a week for us) and HBO. Facility overall is new and impressive. Checked out pool area (nice slide) but did not use. Ate at small restaurant on-site and food was very good (burgers, sandiwches, fish, chicken, etc...). Onl;y downside was it closes altogether at 10pm which means small bar also is closed then. Included breakfast was typical but did include biscuits & gravey and boiled eggs. We ate outside on patio overlooking lake & dock and noticed fire pit and other amenities out there. Checkout was a breeze since we had settled up the night before. Staff was super friendly and helpful.
