See What's New at Parchers Resort! 

 

The Smith Family is always striving to improve the Parchers Resort facility in order to provide the best possible guest experience. Here are just a few of the improvements we've made over the past five seasons.

The remodel of our rustic Cabin 6 into the Cowboy Cabin has also been completed. Knotty pine, new carpet,  new flooring, new furnishings and western themed decor provide a cozy atmosphere that the ideal location of this cabin deserves. We kept the work in the family as our nephew Wade Gervais of Canby Oregon came down for the remodel. His workmanship and attention to detail is immediately evident when entering the cabin.

During our first season at Parchers Resort we were able to complete a host of refurbishing and remodeling projects in an effort to improve the aesthetic aspects of the camp while preserving the rustic mountain charm evident when visiting the resort. The list of projects we completed last year is too long to cover here but we have highlighted some of the improvements that we are most proud of.

Cabin 30, originally the general store in the 1980's and then staff housing for the better part of the last decade was totally remodeled into our Deluxe Mountain Cabin. This cabin is our largest and finest cabin with added amenities not previously available at Parchers. A cabin that sleeps up to six persons with a full kitchen, living room and outdoor patio, Cabin 30's completion was a great addition to the camp.

Over the course of the 2006 season the interiors of Cabins 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, and 28 were all done in knotty pine and received new kitchen cabinets. This project took all year to complete with the last remodel, Cabin 26, wrapping up on October 20th 2006. As you can see, these cabins look fantastic. We were thrilled to have our nephew Wade Gervais from Canby Oregon stay with us for most of the fall to oversee this process. Along with our own Evan Smith, they were able to complete a cabin each week in September and October with excellent quality. All 14 original cabins at the resort were also refurnished and redecorated including new photography, classic outdoor art, night stands, bed spreads and new lamps to give our cabins a classic mountain feel. All buildings on the property also received new exterior paint and new metal roofs which adds to the overall appearance of Parchers.

In 2006 we removed the old playground equipment that was adjacent to the Old Lodge Fireplace and put in a gathering area and stage. The old Parcher House Lodge that used to stand on the property before it was taken down by snow in the late 1960's, was a hub where guests and locals would gather to play cards, exchange stories or relax by the fire. Although we could not rebuild the old lodge, we felt that a gathering area was important to the whole of Parchers Resort. Although now in an outdoor setting, folks can once again gather around the old lodge fireplace. The gathering area can be reserved for family reunions, company retreats or fishing club events. Also, each Saturday evening during the peak season, folks can pull up a chair by the twin fireplaces and watch a campfire program put on by the Inyo National Forest. These campfire programs are a memorable time for children and adults alike.
