Bring a glass of wine to the lake for a picnic and happy hour. Catch up on an evening walk around the neighborhood while you take in the sunset (be sure to check out the short trail to the Barn Owl Lookout, a beautiful and private lake overlook with benches above the vineyard!).

For a romantic dinner, walk just five minutes down the hill to Vin du Lac Winery & Bistro, with a beautiful garden setting, great food and wine, and live music in the summer. Or, take the short drive to favorite dinner spots like Sorrento’s or Winemakers Grill, or explore the charming bars and tasting rooms in downtown Chelan and Manson.

2. Endless Choices for Activities and Adventure

If you’re a couple who loves being active together, fill your getaway with the ultimate day-dates: hiking, golf, mountain biking, water skiing, even parasailing!

If water is your thing, lake access from The Lookout at Lake Chelan is unbeatable – just a walk or shuttle ride down the hill to our marina and boat rentals. If you’re into hiking, check out popular trails like Echo Ridge and Chelan Butte to take in the views. If you and your sweetie love to golf, there are seven courses nearby (check out our full guide for where to play!) You can also hop on a bike or walk the mile-long trail into downtown Chelan to explore the Thursday Farmers Market, shop, or walk along the river.

Most of these outdoor adventures are easy to access from our central location, so you can easily take day trips or spend half-days adventuring and get back to your vacation home to rest, eat dinner, or prepare for your next activity.
