Boating & River Rafting

A variety of boating options are available throughout the Spring to Autumn seasons in the Methow Valley. One mile from the Lodge is our private Patterson Lake beachfront, open year-round for fishing.

During the early summer, exciting white water rafting can be experienced on the Methow River. Book a rafting excursion through local experts with Methow Rafting to skip the logistics.


Due to high demand and limited inventory, the boat rentals are available only to Sun Mountain Lodge and Patterson Lake Cabin overnight guests. Fishing pole rentals are available at Patterson Lake. Fishing licenses are available in Winthrop.

Rowboats — May through October. Half, full, and multi-day rates are available for rowboats.

Kayaks — Mid-June through September. $15/hour.

Paddleboards — Mid-June through September. $20/hour.
