Stehekin farmhouse description

Unplug and get away from it all when you journey to The Stehekin Rustic Retreat. Relax and unwind as you drink in the stunning views of McGregor Mountain, fly fish on the Stehekin River, and enjoy such outdoor activities as hiking, biking, backpacking, horseback riding, river rafting, kayaking, fishing, hunting, and more.

This home is located about 2.8 miles up Stehekin Valley Road in beautiful Stehekin at the head of Lake Chelan. The cabin sleeps up to 10 people.

Layout:
There is one large bedroom with four beds (3 twins, one queen) and full bath attached, one bedroom with two bunks, one bedroom with queen bed, a full second bath, and a queen sofa sleeper.

We also have a full residential kitchen (no auto dishwasher) and a washing machine and clothes line.

Transportation:
Stehekin is at the head of 55 mile long Lake Chelan and there are no roads that lead to Stehekin. Transportation options to Stehekin include the Lady of the Lake Ferry, private boat, and Chelan Seaplanes. We meet you upon arrival, provide transportation to and from the facility and provide basic bicycles while you stay with us.

Nearby Attractions:
Roam our 27 acres or the entire valley and return to quiet comfort & relaxation. Enjoy fishing on the Stehekin River (just a walk across the road).

          Manager info

          Year Purchased: 1983

          About: In about 1981 while in Command of a nuclear submarine, my wife of 39 years and I were living in Connecticut. We embarked on a research project to find the perfect place to retire after the Navy with a hope of living in the Northwest. Our research led us to Stehekin by name. In 1990 we retired and moved our three children to Stehekin with a dream of building a Bible Camp for all to use. We quickly adapted to the lifestyle in Stehekin and built much of the infrastructure for the camp as well as raising our children. Our vacation rental today is in a modified version of the three bedroom/two bath home we rebuilt in Stehekin.

          Why Stehekin:
          Stehekin is special! This world-class destination affords magnificent natural wonders, quiet, safety, unique lifestyles, and much, much more. Stehekin is... what America was. This feeling will grasp you as you explore this scenic valley of enchantment. Rainbow Falls, 312 ft., punctuates the grandeur of the valley and is only half-mile from our vacation rental.

          The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
          Few other locations in the 48 states are so remote, pristine, scenic, and peaceful as Stehekin. Accessible only by boat or plane, the pollution of mind, spirit, and body so prevalent elsewhere is absent in Stehekin. A gateway to the North Cascades National Park, hiking trails abound. The small community of approximately 100 souls will gladly demonstrate their unique one room log school house, lifestyle, and perspective on the outside world. In Stehekin you step back in time but ahead in quality of life.
