Autumn in Lake Chelan Washington: A Season of Relaxation

There is nothing quite like Fall in Lake Chelan! From the outstanding views to the highly anticipated seasonal events, you don’t want to miss a minute of what comes with a fall vacation to this area. Here is everything to know about Autumn in Lake Chelan Washington:

Lake Chelan Weather

Chelan is one of those special places with four distinct seasons. In the early fall, it can still be up in the 70s and 80s, leaving plenty of time for visitors to still enjoy the outdoor activities that they love in the summer months. It’s typically dry with low precipitation as the leaves and grass begin to change color. As the harvest season arrives in November, temperatures begin to drop into the 50s and 40s, with cooler temperatures early in the mornings and later in the evenings. Around the same time you may begin to see more rain and occasionally snow in higher elevations. By late November, you’re going to want to pack warmer clothes and bundle up.

Fun Fall Activities

If you find yourself in the area from late September through October, we suggest heading to Chelan Valley Farms to enjoy their annual pumpkin patch. Come enjoy a tractor ride and pick some apples in their orchard before deciding on your perfect pumpkin. If you’re interested in home decor and fall fun, then you should also sign up for their Pumpkin Centerpiece Arrangement Class on October 2nd!

Seasonal Views

It’s hard to beat the view of Lake Chelan in the fall. With bright reds, yellows and oranges scattered throughout the mountains and valleys, you won’t be able to look away! When you stay at our Lake Chelan vacation rentals at The Lookout, you’ll have an unbeatable view of the fall colors right from the comfort of your house. Wake up in the morning and have a cup of coffee on the porch while taking in the Autumn sights. Make sure to take a few pictures to remember your view!

Harvest Events

If you’re looking to have a “spooktacular” Halloween, you should buy tickets for Haunted Manson, taking place in Manson all October long! Enjoy harvest activities such as a corn maze and a pumpkin carving contest during the day, then enjoy some spooky activities once the sun goes down. Check out their haunted house, graveyard and hayride and then head to the Trunk or Treat.
