Choose from a variety of comfortable lodging options, from large homes that can easily accommodate larger groups to smaller cottages. All vacation rentals come fully furnished for your stay and include amenities like bedding, linens, beach towels, fully stocked kitchens, and more.


Boredom has officially been banished here. Adventure is right outside your door, 365 days a year. Kids can roam free, bouncing between beach and bocce, pools and pickleball, and your family can connect with what they love to do and with each other.


Located in the northern part of Washington State, Chelan boasts four beautiful seasons, a 50-mile clear blue lake, unique activities for all ages and interests, and a friendly, welcoming community. It is an ideal destination for family vacations, romantic getaways, reunions or retreats. From The Lookout, you can easily explore the rest of Lake Chelan Valley activities, with 30+ wineries, hiking and snowshoeing trails, skiing, boating, and much more.
