Faqs

When I buy a lot, do I need to build right away?

Yes. At The Lookout, we build community, not just streets and houses. We focus on a single street, sell and build all the homes, then begin our next neighborhood. This creates a critical mass of homes, of people and voila, community! This approach also allows new home owners to enjoy a “construction-free” street within a shorter time frame.

How long is the build out?

The process of building your new home at The Lookout typically takes about one year from signing.

Who is your builder?

We are lucky to partner with Harkey Construction, Lake Chelan’s premier home builder. With over twenty-five years experience in the valley, Dave Harkey and his crew can’t be beat.

What are the HOA dues and what do they cover?

$300/month. HOA dues cover maintenance of front yards, street care, pool care, and green space maintenance.

How many pools does The Lookout have?

The Lookout’s first pool located in the Hilltop District offers stunning lake and mountain views. Summer 2019 brought the much-anticipated Vineyard District pool – with swim lanes, hot tub, children’s splash pad and bath house. Our Vineyard District pool will be open year-round.

Is The Lookout dog-friendly?

Absolutely! We love our canine friends. And responsible owners.

What are the details of the Cottage Rental Program?

Our Cottage Rental Program began in 2014 and utilizes a strong online reservations system, call center and on-site hospitality, maintenance, and housekeeping team. We have an extensive marketing plan to increase awareness about homes in our Cottage Rental Program. We advertise through a wide variety of mediums including newspaper, magazine, trade shows, digital advertising, direct mail and email campaigns. Our Property Management fee is 37%. This program has been an incredible way for owners to realize investment income from their second home.

What levels of rental occupancy do you expect?

Occupancy in the Chelan Valley has always been strong in the summer months and has now expanded into the shoulder and off seasons. Our Cottage Rental program allows homeowners to decide how often they’d like to rent their home. In 2018, our owners used their homes on average 50 nights and received 85 nights of paid rental income. We endeavor to grow our program and market reach each year.

Do you have a marina?

Yes. The Lookout Marina was completed in June of 2015. It has 70 berths that are available for rent to Lookout owners and Cottage Rental guests on a short and long term basis. Rental rates are $25/day, $150/week, or $975/year. Slip reservations can be made by calling (509) 682-1515.

Is there a boat launch on the property?

There is not a launch at The Lookout but there are two public boat launches located less than one mile from The Lookout.

Are there garages at The Lookout?

Yes. Most homesites can accommodate a garage as an upgrade selection.  Some home plans have integrated garages.  One or two car carriage houses are also an option on select homesites.

Do you have a preferred lender?

We welcome your personal lender. We have also worked with a number of great folks and can share these resources upon request.
