Manson house description

Located on Manson Bay's sunny north shore, this 3 bedroom two bathroom home sits on one of the largest waterfront lots within walking distance to downtown Manson, (Village on the Bay). Both bathrooms are tiled and the living room has a wall of glass from floor to ceiling,20'tall, that offers the most amazing view of the lake and the mountains beyond. I've lived here 27 years and am still in awe of the views.
Two bedrooms have sliding doors that open up to private decks with incredible views, the third bedroom has bunk beds and no view.
The home is set up with just about everything you'll need. Fully equipped kitchen, pots and pans etc., as well as all the little things, spices, cooking oils, etc.
For indoor entertainment, I have an upscale stereo system with surround sound, plus speakers outside for listening to music while lounging on the main deck or down on the patio by the waters edge. I have a vhs collection with over 500 movies that you can watch in any of the three bedrooms as well as in the living room. The living room is a great gathering place with seating for nine and a 50' high definition plasma tv.
With high speed internet and Wi-Fi, you can stay connected whether you are in the house or sitting on the dock. There is also 'Direct TV' for all the televisions in the house.
Outside amenities include a huge main deck with tables and chairs to seat ten, a very large Kenmore gas grill, and a full size refrigerator to store those extra beverages.
The property is tastefully landscaped and the 135' of waterfront is a favorite gathering place where you can lounge near the diving board or watch your children play in the sandy wading area.
For boaters, there is a private, (not shared), dock as well as a boat lift and mooring buoys.
To sum it all up, I would like to say that this has been my home for twenty-seven years. When I move out in the summertime to accommodate my guests, I take my clothes and food with me. Everything else is left in the house for all to share.
Though I am new to 'vrbo', I have been in this business since 2003 and it has been gratifying to have been a part of creating so many wonderful memories for those that have been my guests. (Some of my families have been coming for ten years!)
I deeply appreciate those I've come to know and I look forward to those I am about to meet!

              It's a 4 minute walk to downtown Manson, 'Village on the Bay'. The town is located on beautiful Manson Bay, complete with marina, designated swim area with lifeguard, and a park. A great place for that morning stroll or a walk after dinner. Several Restaurants are within walking distance as well as two bars and a number of shops.

              Mill Bay Casino is a five minute drive if you feel lucky. Better yet, the casino features 'Deep water Amphitheater a 1,200 seat venue that features some class acts during the spring and summer. (Check out their site on Facebook to see who's coming).

              The town of Chelan is seven miles away and features a water park, miniature golf, fine dining and more.

              There's a million things to do while your here, including one of my favorites, relaxing! Nothing wrong with spending the day lounging in the sun and cooling off in the lake!

              During the 'off season', September through May, the Chelan Valley undergoes a change that is both peaceful and relaxing as well as a viable choice for the outdoor enthusiast.

              During the Spring and Fall, the temperatures are pleasant, mid seventies to mid eighties, comfortable for those who wish to hike or bike. Cycling enthusiasts may choose between

              miles of scenic rural countryside or head for the hills for some fantastic mountain biking, all just a short pedal from your front door.

              During the winter, these same hills that offer mountain biking

              become groomed trails, a gorgeous playground for snowmobiling or cross country skiing.

              There is so much to do here year around, come experience the Lake during all four seasons!


              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1986

              About the owner: I have been a commercial fisherman, (Alaska crabber), since 1980. In 1986, while still in my twenties, I bought this home because I fell in love with the area and found I wasn't using my first home in Wenatchee other than as a place to grab a few things and head to the lake! I'm thankful to have chosen such a beautiful location with so much to do for the outdoor enthusiast. When friends ask me why I haven't gone on a vacation in the last 27 years, I just smile.

              Why the Owner Chose Manson:
              I love the sun, water, and privacy. This property has all three as well as gorgeous views. And only a short walk to town.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              I would have to say that one of my favorite things about this property is the privacy. I own the lot next door which not only provides plenty of parking, but provides a natural buffer from the scrutiny of my neighbors. I never feel as though I'm being watched.
