Olson’s Resort in Sekiu, Wash., has been sold to an Idaho family familiar with welcoming guests to the great outdoors, the Peninsula Daily News reported.

The 81-year-old family fishing resort has been run by the Olson family since its founding by Alvin Olson, who died in 1970.

Arlen Olson, 80, Alvin’s son, has run the business with his wife, Donalyn, for more than 40 years. The couple stepped into semiretirement last Tuesday, when the sale closed.

The new owner is Mason Family Properties, a limited liability company with roots in Murtaugh, Idaho, where the Mason family operates an RV park and a ranch near Twin Falls.

The Mason family business’ local representatives are new permanent Sekiu residents Brandon Mason, 36, and his wife, Dawn Mason, 37, who moved to town last month to run the operation.

“Other family members will come and go, but we are the ones who will be here year-round,” Brandon Mason said Monday.

The couple has 21 years of experience running an RV park and they are both hunters and anglers.
