What is a Carriage House? The Perfect Addition to Your Rental

At The Lookout, our Lake Chelan vacation rental homes come in all shapes and sizes: different layouts, interior styles, and amenities in each one. We also have a special variation on several of our homes: a “carriage house”, which is a smaller, separate space on the same property. These are available to rent as an option in addition to the main house.

While they don’t serve the original purpose of housing a horse-drawn carriage, these add-ons do serve the purpose of providing our guests with more flexibility for sleeping and living arrangements in their Chelan vacation rental. This could mean extra space to spread out, host a larger group, or get more privacy.

They can also have their own lounge spaces, TVs, kitchenettes, dining space, decks, and even lake views. Typically, these are second-floor units above the garage.

Just steps away from the main vacation home, a carriage house can be a helpful add-on: a quiet place for grandparents to sleep; a private space for a nanny; a way to combine two families into one home; or, in unique times like these with Covid restrictions and guidelines, perhaps a way to have family or friends come together in their own private indoor spaces, while spending time together outdoors on vacation. (And there is plenty to do outside at The Lookout and surrounding area in Chelan!)

Currently, there are nine Lookout vacation rental homes that offer these additional spaces (one will be completed in 2021). Check out these homes for your next stay!
