AREA CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
Newport • Oldtown • Cusick • Usk • Diamond Lake
On behalf of the Greater Newport Area Chamber, welcome to our corner of the Great Northwest and the southern gateway to the International Selkirk Loop. If you love the outdoors, you’ll find countless ways to get your fill of fresh air exploring the Selkirk Mountains and the Colville and Kaniksu National Forests. Take a break, and reconnect with your family during a camping trip, hiking in the mountains, or discover our birding sites. With dozens of lakes and the north-flowing Pend Oreille River (pronounced Pond-o-ray), there are plenty of opportunities for swimming, fishing, boating, and kayaking. While you’re here, learn about this region’s first people, the Kalispel Tribe of Indians, and discover captivating stories about our early pioneers and roots in the timber and mining industries. Festivals, fairs, car shows, and rodeos offer summertime fun every weekend. Hunting in the fall, snowmobiling in the winter, and fishing in the spring and summer give you reasons to keep coming back. If retail therapy is more to your liking, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the variety of boutique shops, stores, and restaurants ready to serve you with friendly smiles. We hope you enjoy your time with us exploring the friendly communities of Newport, Oldtown, Diamond Lake, Cusick, and Usk. Whether it’s for outdoor adventure or a peaceful get-away, we look forward to hosting you and your family. Rob Owen President Greater Newport Area Chamber

ou may have first come to the Greater Newport Area for our spectacular lakes, river, trails and wildlife, but did you know that shopping is also an enticing draw? Seems you outdoorsy types also have quite a retail fetish. Let us share with you a few of our awardwinning shopping events and retailers. It’s amazing what can happen when a few shop owners pool their ideas and resources. In our case, the award-winning Who Let the Girls Out!? shop hop was born. Held twice a year in mid-May and midNovember, hundreds of (mostly) ladies from far and wide descend upon Newport and Oldtown for a day that’s “all about the ladies.” Spirits are high, with sales, scrumptious treats and gift certificates up for grabs and a festive atmosphere for all. Small town retail therapy at its absolute best!
Each WLTGO!? shop is known for something special that you’d be hard pressed to find anywhere else. A crowd favorite is definitely multiple award-winner the Shanty Boutique on Union Ave in Newport. A trendy yet cozy boutique, it offers fabulous clothing, vintageinspired home décor and stylish gifts complete with first-rate, friendly service. Enjoy an espresso as you sip, shop and stay a while.

Looking back in time, few would argue that Just Because Fashion & Gifts first put Newport shopping on the map. With all the latest styles in designer clothing, accessories and gifts, rarely do women walk out the doors empty handed. At Just Because, you’ll find small town hospitality with big city style and selections. And, if you still can’t get enough, Just Because also has a Hayden, ID and a downtown Coeur d’Alene location. One of the newest kids on the block is North Country Clothing Shop, located on the main drag in downtown Newport. Recently expanded, they offer stylish clothes and accessories for men, women, juniors, plus sizes and boys and girls. Finally you can shop for the entire family in one place! Carrying a great selection of designer brands for every budget, you can shop in style at North Country Clothing Shop.
Home & Garden
If you’re a baker, chef, foodie or just a lover of food, The Kitchen Shoppe in Newport is a “must visit”. Typically kicking off WLTGO!? with some helpful product demonstrations and specials the night before, this is where you’ll find all the latest in cooking gadgets and accessories, not to mention a fabulous wine selection. Every Friday morning the mouth-watering aroma of freshly made bread, baked goods, and their famous cinnamon rolls, wafts from the store and patrons have been known to start gobbling up the bread before they’ve even walked out the doors!
We may be rural, but it won’t take you long to figure out that we are a wired community with an extensive fiber optic and high-speed network. For all you techies, downtown Newport’s Exbabylon is your home away from home. You’ll find smart phones, tablets, computers, printers and all the accessories, wiring, service options and the tech support you need to stay connected.
A few blocks away in Newport, the quintessential white picket fence of Fleur de Lis Floral & Home will draw you in. As you browse fresh & silk flower arrangements, stylish home décor and accessories for the home and host(ess), you’ll enjoy the natural light from the floor to ceiling windows, inviting the outside in. The scent of fresh flowers will tempt you to take a colorful bouquet home for no other reason than you’re worth it.
Variety Looking for a trip down memory lane to the good ole days? Ben Franklin Variety Store delivers the perfect blend of nostalgia, customer service and everything you could possibly want in one place. Recent Business of the Year winner, Ben Franklin offers everything from apparel to housewares, fabrics & craft supplies, hunting, fishing & camping gear, toys for kids and all the seasonal merchandise you’d expect.

Customize It Whether you’re a Seahawks fan, aspiring Olympian or like your stuff to be distinctly yours, be sure to duck your head into Country Lane Embroidery in downtown Newport. They’re full of professional team sports jerseys and licensed wear and customizable sportswear, accessories, trophies, glass and tile. Did we mention their prices and customer service just can’t be beat? Trust us, you’ll thank us later!
Just over the bridge in Oldtown off Highway 2, you will find Into the Garden, Up to the Lake. If you ever dreamed of outfitting the perfect garden or quaint cottage, this is the place for you. From outdoor furniture to vintage items, home and garden accessories and art for every nook and cranny, you’ll relax as you soak in their country hospitality and refreshing setting.
And for all you build it, fix it, paint it, lift it, demolish it and start all over again because tools are cool types, look no further than Albeni Falls Building Supply, also located just over the bridge in Oldtown. If you need something for your home, shop, garden or business, chances are you’ll find it at Albeni.
Pampering After a day of shopping or fun-filled adventures outdoors, who wouldn’t love some relaxation and pampering? Visit Anastasia’s Salon and Day Spa where you can enjoy a rejuvenating facial and massage chair, along with hair care services, manicures and pedicures. Try their spray-tanning or tanning booth for that touch-of-sun glow.
This is just a sampling of our local retailers, designed to entice you to say a while and explore all that our shopping district has to offer. Please check out our full list of local chamber retailers in our Membership Directory and on our area maps.

Food & Dining
ll the natural beauty and activities are bound to drum up your appetite! Lucky for you, there are lots of yummy options for almost every type of eater and budget.
Pizza Freshly made pizza is always a family favorite and Westside Pizza in downtown Newport has the winning combination of hand-made dough, premium meats and the freshest toppings— satisfaction guaranteed. It’s worth visiting just to see them roll & toss the dough, assemble all the toppings and bake them to perfection. But if you’re too comfortable on the couch to make it downtown, you can count on them to deliver a fully-baked (or even a half-baked pizza for you to finish off in your own oven) right to your doorstep!
Italian & American Right in the heart of downtown Newport, you’ll find Rudy Marmo’s Italian and American Cuisine (formerly Michael’s Café). Now serving American and Italian cuisine, choose from the likes of hearty spaghetti and meatballs, Italian sausage, chicken fettuccine and Tuscan chicken. Start a new Sunday family tradition by enjoying bowls of noodles, meat sauce and salad, along with breadsticks and Parmesan cheese—all family style. And if big screens, billiards and beverages is more your style, step into the adjoining bar and kick it up a notch!
Deli & Catering If you want the authentic small town Americana experience, the turn-of-thecentury soda fountain at Owen’s Grocery & Deli in downtown Newport is an absolute must-do. Just completing a major renovation this spring/summer, you’ll love their new vibe. Savor their home-made ice cream and root beer floats that overflow boot-shaped mugs. Tackle their humongous sandwiches made to order and stock up on all your groceries and beverages while you’re at it. Still not enough? Impress your friends by booking Owen’s to cater their famous prime rib dinner for your next gathering – you’ll be the host with the most!
10 | 2014 Visitors Guide www.newportareachamber.com
Bakery Freshly baked goods, breads and other sweet treats make the Kitchen Shoppe one of the most popular stops in town. Every Friday, the smell of freshly baked bread wafts out of the front door, stopping passers by in their tracks. One patron in particular is known for ripping into her weekly loaf of honey oatmeal bread before she even leaves the building—yes, it’s that good. Mouth-watering bread and a great wine selection to boot—does it get any better?
Gourmet Golf Just outside of Newport, en route to Priest River, you’ll come across The Ranch Club—a local golf course that’s as well known for its incredible kitchen and chef as it is for its sprawling fairways. Legendary prime rib and seafood specials ensure a loyal following of regulars and hey, if you’re going to work it off on the fairways, who cares about the calorie count? From appies to calzones, burgers to overflowing nachos, the Ranch Club Golf Course & Restaurant is one course you don’t want to skip.
On the Go! If fast and furious is more your style, there are a couple of “on the go” solutions to make sure you’re not late for your fishing date. With a brand new building, McDonald’s is the easiest drive through for miles around. Located right where Newport and Oldtown meet, with a menu a mile long, you can grab whatever you need to continue on your journey or, stay a while and enjoy free wi-fi while you wait. For the coffee connoisseurs in the crowd, Nomad Coffee Co., located in the parking lot of Ben Franklin in Oldtown, serves up the yummiest caffeinated and decaffeinated treats around. And to keep you cool in the summer try one of their frosty ice cream blended beverages that are sure to make you say Mmmmm. Their fun and friendly servers are fast and experienced and ensure your personal beverage of choice is made just the way you like it! Drive through or walk up, you’ll be sipping pure heaven in no time.

Indoor & Outdoor Recreation
he Greater Newport Area is definitely a four-seasons area offering a variety of outdoor and indoor recreation opportunities. We’ve got you covered so you can stay active year round—indoors and out!
Tee it Up! If you’re a golfer (or aspire to a Caddyshack-type lifestyle), the Ranch Club Golf Course in Priest River will soon become your second home. Not only is it host to countless summer tournaments and league play, but it’s also the perfect local spot to pull out your clubs and sink some clutch putts. Friendly staff, a well-groomed course, and a kitchen and bar serving up famous local fare, all that’s missing (thankfully) are the gophers!
racquetball and squash courts, fully equipped Pilates studio, tumbling classes and stand up tanning. If you’re a little shy, Club Energy offers day passes to ease you into your fitness regime.
Strike! If you’re looking for more fun, less sweating, then put on your bowling shirt and head on over to OK Lanes in Oldtown for some good old fashioned bowling. There are even gutter bumpers available for young children or those who need a “little” work on their aim. Home to the Chamber of Commerce’s annual Business Bowling Bash (this year it was a ‘70s theme and we’re still recovering —‘nuf said), OK Lanes offers food, video games, disco lighting and full bar as well, so you can make a day or an evening of it.
Keep Fit The multi-million dollar Camas Center for Community Wellness, located on the Kalispel Tribe of Indians’ reservation in Usk, makes you look forward to working out. Seriously. Open to the entire community (visitors too!), it features unforgettable indoor pools (lap, kids, splash park, water slides, whirlpool), weight training, fitness classes, indoor climbing wall and full indoor gymnasium with a healthy café to re-fuel your body after your workout. Fun for the entire family, the Camas Center is definitely worth the drive. In Newport, conveniently just across from Owen’s soda fountain, you’ll find Club Energy, a privatelyowned 20,000 square foot full service health and fitness facility. Providing the latest that fitness has to offer, their certified trainers are second to none. Group classes range from Zumba to Mat Pilates, TRX and crossfit, kids self-defense, spinning, yoga and kettlebells. You can also enjoy the free weights, cardio equipment,
Athletic Events If you’re looking to incorporate some fun athletic events amongst your weekly workouts, there are some obvious ones we’d recommend in a flash. For the fishermen (and women) in the crowd, the Pike Palooza fishing derbies on the Pend Oreille River cannot be beat, nor can the free fishing days (no license needed) in WA and ID to start off the season. If golfing is more your thing, Newport Hospital & Health Services Foundation puts on their annual Fore! the Health of It charity golf tournament at StoneRidge golf course in mid-June, followed about a month later by the People of the Pend Oreille charity golf tournament organized by the Kalispel Tribe of Indians and also at StoneRidge. And of course you can always find local charity golf tournaments (not to mention mens’ and ladies’ league play) at the Ranch Club Golf Course in Priest River.

For the joggers in the crowd, warm up at the Relay for Life through the night at the Newport High School track in early August, then lace up your big shoes for the Newport Autumn Bloom 5k & 10k fun run, organized by the Newport Hospital & Health Services Foundation. An official qualifier for Spokane’s annual Bloomsday Run, this event draws a crowd from miles around. If paddling floats your boat, don’t miss two paddle events that, between them, cover almost the entire length of the Pend Oreille River Water Trail within Pend Oreille County. First up in July is the two-day Tri Town Float Down up north, where participants paddle and float along from Ruby Creek to Metaline. Later in August, is the Chamber’s 33rd Annual Pend Oreille River Poker Paddle, a one day family friendly paddling event starting at Rotary Park in Oldtown and ending in Usk. And if you want more than just a paddle but less than a run, you must try the Newport Biayakathon (half paddle, half cycle) held in early September along the Pend Oreille River launching from Rotary Park. Trust us, your knees will love you.
Speaking of riding, of course we haven’t forgotten about you cyclists in your tight shorts and aerodynamic helmets. The end of summer/early fall is perfect cycling weather in our neck of the woods so it should come as no surprise that we offer two premier cycling events that attract participants from across North America. First off is the one-day Great Northwest Fall Bike Tour that launches from Newport City Park at the end of August. And for the real enthusiasts, mid-September is WaCanId time. Say what? It’s a six day bike tour along the International Selkirk Loop traversing parts of Washington, Canada and Idaho. Hence the name. It starts (and ends) in Sandpoint, ID and cyclists pass through our neck of the woods on Day 1.
GET FIT. STAY HEALTHY. HAVE FUN! As part of the Kalispel Tribe’s vision to improve the standard of living in our community, the Camas Center offers endless recreation, fitness and healthcare options for everyone.

The Great Outdoors
ature’s our backyard here in the Greater Newport area, and our locals know how to keep a secret about our stunning four-season, natural playgrounds. But don’t worry, there’s plenty of outdoors to go around any time of the year. Here’s a sampling of our dozens of lakes, the Pend Oreille River Water Trail, miles of hiking trails, and a glimpse at our wildlife to get you started. If you need to pick up some gear or replenish your tackle box before you head-out, stop by Ben Franklin for those last minute supplies.
Lakes and the River
Parks & Trails
Paddlers, bring your kayaks and canoes for an unforgettable journey along the 70 mile, north-flowing Pend Oreille River Water Trail. The trail offers access to easy launches, environmental and historical points of interests, relaxing picnic stops, and overnight campsites. Water Trail Maps are available at the Pend Oreille County Courthouse.
The Upper and Lower Wolf Trails are U.S. Forest Service trails nestled on the edge of Newport. Lace up your shoes and hike, mountain bike, or snowshoe through an open forest of Douglas fir, ponderosa pine, grand fir, and larch. The trail system is about five miles long, and its difficulty rating is easy to moderate. With cedar benches for resting and scenic viewpoints of the Pend Oreille River along the lower trails you’ll find these trails to be suitable for beginners and perfect for families.
Bead Lake, at a little more than 700 acres, Bead Lake is located just over eight miles north of Newport. It has a boat launch and a forest trail for hiking along its shores. The lake features Kokanee, lake trout, burbot, and Northern Pikeminnow and is a popular place for ice-fishing, too. Browns Lake, at a little over eight miles northeast of Cusick, this lake has a surface area of about 90 acres, a boat launch, and hiking trail. Fisherman, this is your fly-fishing only paradise for some beautiful trout. Davis Lake, with a surface area of nearly 150 acres, this lake offers a boat launch and is less than 15 miles west of Newport. You’ll find sunfish, largemouth bass, Kokanee, rainbow trout, and eastern brook trout.
The Bead Lake Trail, a U.S. Forest Service trail, is about 11 miles long through an evergreen forest with cedar groves and white pine, where you’ll find refreshing views of pristine Bead Lake. Its difficulty rating is moderate. The Pend Oreille County Park Trails, on Highway 2, just two miles north of Spokane County, this seven mile trail system winds through an evergreen forest of pine and cedar with a difficulty rating of moderate. Camping sites, picnic tables, fire grills, potable water, and vault toilets are on site.
Diamond Lake, only eight miles southwest of Newport with over 740 surface acres, this lake has largemouth bass, yellow perch, bullheads, rainbow and brown trout. Diamond Lake is home to a thriving lakeside community and offers a public boat launch, which is perfect for fishing and water skiers alike.
The Geophysical Sno-Park is a U.S. Forest Service park and trail system located along Indian Creek Road northwest of Newport. Enjoy this trail during any season as it offers six-miles of groomed trails perfect for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and skijoring in the winter and of course hiking, mountain-biking, and horse-riding in the spring through fall.
Sacheen Lake, with about 280 surface acres and a boat launch, this lake is located a little more than 17 miles west of Newport. There’s good fishing for largemouth bass, Kokanee, sunfish, rainbow trout, and eastern brook trout.
Newport City Park, located at First Street and Calispel Avenue, is home to the Newport Rodeo in June, the Pend Oreille Valley Lavender Festival each July, and the Newport Music Festival in September. The
18 | 2014 Visitors Guide www.newportareachamber.com
park features a 3,000 square foot splash pad with water-spray fountains for children to enjoy during the summer and a skateboard park. A covered shelter, stage, picnic tables, and playground equipment make this a welcoming retreat for visitors and residents alike. For more city parks, check our map to find TJ Kelly Park and the Fred G. Anderson Veterans Memorial Park.
Wildlife Birders will discover feathered friends in the Pend Oreille region of the Palouse to Pines Loop of the Great Washington State Birding Trail. You’ll find special feathered guests like Bobolinks, which are the tuxedoed blackbird relative, and elegant white Tundra Swans. There are only two locations in Washington State where you can find bobolinks, and Pend Oreille County is where they are most abundant! For a true birding spectacle, join Pend Oreille River Tourism Alliance (PORTA) each March for the annual Tundra Swan Festival. From the Kalispel Tribe’s Camas Center for Community Wellness you’ll be bused to privately-owned Calispell Lake where you can watch hundreds of Tundra Swan during their annual migration. Bring your family, binoculars, and cameras for this unforgettable experience.
Here in our northern woods, you’ll find plenty of wildlife including rare or endangered species like woodland caribou and lynx. Although woodland caribou spend the majority of their time in BC, Canada, the Selkirk Mountains are the last place within the contiguous United States that you could possibly see these majestic animals. They have been a part of our ecosystem for thousands of years, and both the U.S. and Canada have implemented recovery efforts. If you’re a snowshoer or cross-country skier in our higher elevations, you might just spot a lynx. They are specialized, high-elevation cats that are larger than bobcats and have snowshoe-like feet that allow them to easily catch their prey even in deep snow.
