Lake Entiat Estates, better known as Sun Cove, is the second-largest housing area in Douglas County, exceeded only by East Wenatchee. How did this area 11 miles north of Orondo grow into a vibrant community of 444 properties?

Sun Country Development began in 1967 as a recreational area where owners traveled from the west side of the mountains seeking the sunshine and water sports provided by Lake Entiat, a recently formed recreational reservoir on the Columbia River. Owners camped on the community lawn in those early days. Original plans were to build a golf course community on the river.
