Your Lake Chelan Vacation Home for the Holidays

The things you need to host a holiday dinner: a good attitude and a bottle of wine.

The things you really need: a roomy kitchen, a table for gathering, spaces for playing and watching games…and several bottles of wine!

Keeping up with your holiday traditions away from home may seem like a challenge, but it doesn’t have to be! Think of our Lake Chelan vacation rental homes as places to make your own. That could mean hosting a multi-generational meal with grandparents and kids, having a Friendsgiving dinner with both old friends and new, hosting a football and food party, or whatever you love most about the holidays.

The Lookout vacation homes are meant to be gathering spaces. Homeowners take care to choose the plan and amenities of their lake home with comfort in mind for their own family – but also knowing that they can share it with others. From the layout of bedrooms with masters on main floors, to bunk rooms that sleep all the kids, to huge kitchens with islands and tables for groups, these rental homes at Lake Chelan are built for comfortable, easy, stress-free getaways.

Here are a few ways our Chelan vacation rental homes are set up to host for any holiday:

Gather around the counter

With large center islands or peninsulas, many with bar seating, you’ll have the right counter space, gadgets and amenities, and (maybe the best part), it will all be spotlessly clean when you arrive.

Gather around the table

Many homes have open floor plans that are great for large groups to mingle, and space for full dining tables when it’s time to sit down and eat. Place settings and table decor dress up the space–and mean that you don’t have to bring a thing.

Gather around the games

Many of our Lake Chelan vacation rentals also have game rooms: from outdoor covered ping pong overlooking the lake, to air hockey or pool in the den, to video game chairs in the media room. Perfect for rainy days or when you’re ready for some friendly competition. 

Gather around the TV

Speaking of competition, we can’t ignore the holiday tradition of couch-sitting! Plush sofas you can fall asleep on, plenty of extra seating, and TVs make comfy areas to watch all the big games, classic movies, or binge your favorite series with the ones you love.

We hope you join us this year for holidays at the lake!
