Oroville vacation rentals

Enjoy a memorable vacation in Oroville

A tiny city nestled between the Similkameen and Okanagan Rivers in Washington State's North Cascades region, Oroville lies directly south of Osoyoos Lake, Canada's warmest freshwater lake. All that water means there are ample opportunities to sail, swim, and canoe, although travelers find that the landscape surrounding the lake holds plenty of appeal too. Whether visiting for the weekend or enjoying a longer break, Oroville vacation rentals place you right in the heart of the action. You'll find that many homes come with stunning views of the water.

Enjoy life on the water near Oroville

Ready to hit the water? Osoyoos Lake boasts several marinas where you can rent everything from paddleboats and Sea-Doos to jet skis and kayaks. Of course, if you'd prefer to simply lie back and soak up the sun, sandy spots such as Legion Beach serve up the chance to do exactly that. Activities on the lake can keep you busy all day long but the water can be just as captivating as evening falls. Sunset water cruises, departing from Spirit Beach Marina, can be a lovely way to round off your day before heading back to your Oroville vacation rental.

Explore Oroville's gold rush beginnings

Making time to peek into the past will prove to be time well spent here. The Oroville Museum and Visitor Welcome Center, open May through September, features a permanent historical display as well as a different annual exhibition. The Old Molson Ghost Town Museum, open April through November, offers a different take on the area's past by focusing on the old gold rush days. Follow up with a trip to Similkameen River to watch modern-day dredgers seeking their fortune or head, instead, to the Esther Bricques Winery and Vineyard, a popular spot offering year-round Thursday evening social gatherings.

Choose your adventure, choose your season in Oroville

Oroville is pretty quiet over the winter, although temperatures that are far from unbearable and various snow sports mean it's well worth exploring Oroville vacation rentals. Spring and fall can be excellent seasons to examine the area's attractions, perhaps enjoying a spot of wine-tasting or stocking up on fresh goodies from local farmers markets. It's summer, though, when this town really comes alive. Temperatures in the high 80s during July and August offer the perfect backdrop for everything from lazing on the beach to practicing your swing on the tree-lined fairways at Oroville Golf Club.

Discover your inner Hemingway

The landscape around Oroville is nothing short of a natural wonderland, serving up everything from hills and mountains to forests and orchards. Less than 40 miles south of Oroville lies the 23,000-acre Sinlahekin Wildlife Recreation Area, a tranquil spot popular for trout fishing and catching a glimpse of black bears, moose, and deer in the coniferous forest surroundings. Also in this popular recreation area, the Chiliwist valley serves as a backdrop for gamebird-hunting for Hungarian partridge and forest grouse or simply soaking up the scenery from atop a horse or from behind a camera lens.
