Clearwater Lodge hosts numerous Christian and non-profit retreats each year, with groups from throughout the Spokane area and the Inland Northwest – from Yakima to Coeur d’Alene, Tri-Cities to Spokane, Moses Lake to Lewiston.
Our expanded and remodeled dining room features a wood paneled, cathedral ceiling, massive timbers, stone fireplace and expansive windows with spectacular views to the lake and mountains beyond. Our food service routinely receives rave reviews from our adult guests.
The Lakeside Room features a panorama view of the exceptional natural setting, heavy timbers, and a wood burning, granite masonry fireplace. We provide – at no extra charge – use of our data/video projector, overhead projector, microphones (including lapel mic), full sound system, white board, podium – everything you need for a successful conference.
The Creekside Pavilion is the newest member of our line-up of architecturally-sophisticated spaces, opening Spring 2017. The Creekside Pavilion reflects the natural setting, featuring a palette of granite masonry, heavy timbers, black steel, floor-to-ceiling windows, wrap-around deck and four glass garage doors that puts the guest in the midst of the spectacular, wooded lakeside setting. The building, seating up to 50 guests, includes a restroom, kitchenette, wood stove insert and data/video display equipment.
The rusticly furnished Rendezvous Room, with full A/V and seating for up to 250 people, also features the Clearwater Trading Post, our gift store and coffee bar. Classy apparel, fun apparel, high-end crafts from Northwest artisans (jewelry, pottery, soaps, picture frames…), stationary, books, candles and more. The perfect addition for a morning latté or afternoon browsing and visiting.
We are confident your group will find our retreat center’s accommodations, hospitality, food service and natural setting to be exceptional, as did this recent group of 159 women:
“I just wanted to say ‘thank you’ for a wonderful weekend at Clearwater Lodge. We have held this event for 14 years and your staff and facilities are by far the nicest we have ever encountered. The Lord moved in and blessed our ladies in so many ways, and all I have heard are rave reviews for Clearwater. We would LOVE to come back. Thanks again for your gracious ministry to us and for the high level of excellence with which you serve the Lord.”

Thank you for your interest in Clearwater Lodge. Please note that we are a conference and retreat center serving area Christian churches and local non-profits. We therefore do not host weddings or family reunions, and do not rent out individual rooms.
Each guest room in our resort lodge features log furniture, down comforters, large wood frame windows (all rooms with lake views), Pendleton fabrics, and custom furnishings from Northwest artisans. Most of our 22 guest rooms feature two twin beds on the main level and two twins in a loft (accessed by stairs).
