Sorrento's Ristorante

Located on the south shore near landmark Pat & Mike's convenience store, the Sunshine Farm Market and Tunnel Hill Winery, it's just 1-1/2 miles east to water slides for summertime fun, places to rent boats and jet-skis and the Lady of the Lake boat dock. There is daily passenger service to Stehekin, a remote village at head of this 55-mile glacier-fed lake. At 3-1/2 miles you come to the historic town of Chelan, with its Riverwalk, shopping and restaurants.

To the west 10 miles (along southshore road or there's a great bike trail), you'll come to alpine terrain and the state park. In the area you'll also find a dozen more wineries to visit, two gorgeous and challenging golf courses, trails for mountain-bike riding, a casino, and world-class hang-gliding.

Other Activities: Agricultural tours and wine-tasting.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1973

About the owner: This was the owner's custom-built (in 1973) family home for many years until a gorgeous new home came available just above vineyards across the road on his ranch and with some arm-twisting from his 2nd wife he reluctantly agreed to relocate. He now agrees that from their new home it's easier to operate the Tunnel Hill Winery and Sunshine Farm, which overlook beautiful Lake Chelan, so this original family home has become available for your family to enjoy!

Why the Owner Chose Chelan:
This home was built on the narrow strip of land at the pumphouse for the orchards above, which is why you'll find it a uniquely long and tall shape, but with a perfect sandy beach.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Sandy beach great for kids and sandcastles, large decks to relax on, long dock for boats and sunbathing, lots of nooks and crannies inside for many family members.
