Pearrygin Lake State Park in the
Methow Valley features green lawns along 11,000 feet of shoreline on Pearrygin Lake.
The park is a popular destination for recreationists who enjoy hiking, swimming, fishing
and boating. Those who simply want to relax on a hot summer day can enjoy the shade
of the mature weeping willows that grow in the park. Campers often get visits from
local wildlife, including marmots and mule deer who wander through the campground.
Visitors who like tourist activities can venture to nearby Winthrop, a charming
Pearrygin Lake’s vacation house lies on the shores of scenic Pearrygin Lake, three
miles from Winthrop in north Central Washington’s Methow Valley. This overnight
rental has all the comforts of home, with a beautiful view of the lake and majestic
Gardner Mountain in the region’s North Cascade Mountains.
The cottage is very close to the swim beach, boat launch, picnic area and camp store.
It is a short walk to the campground for family or friends who are camping or staying
in an RV. The cottage is accessible to those with disabilities.
The building originally was constructed and located in Twisp as the first office for
the Lloyd Logging Corporation. It was moved in the 1970s to its current location at
Derry's Resort and served as housing for resort staff. Derry's Resort was purchased
in late 2004 by Washington State Parks. The cottage was renovated during the winter
of 2005-06, opening for business in time for the 2006 Memorial Day weekend.
