The new owners of Harts Lake Resort and Deli certainly know their way around the place. Carol and Charlie Parsons, who owned the resort for 12 years before selling it in 2011, have come out of retirement after the previous owners defaulted on the deal.

Carol Parsons admits it was hard to leave their new home in Clarkston, Wash., but she didn’t want to see the resort fall into disrepair.

“I basically have to start all over again. I just want to get things back up and running,” she said. “We’re working hard to get the place cleaned up.”

The resort will offer breakfasts and lunches, as well as fishing supplies. It is open 8 a.m.-6 p.m. Wednesdays-Sundays.

The resort also has a new phone number, 360-400-1386.
