"We had to change our vacation plans late in the summer and were looking for a place to stay at/around Lake Chelan. We found this wonderful home randomly and couldn't have been more lucky. While we were originally a little concerned it wasn't on the lake itself we realized quickly how lucky we were that it wasn't. We had 8 people staying in the house including 5 adults and 3 kids. The house was large comfortably house 10-12 people so we had plenty of room. The downstairs was like a suite in and of itself with a full kitchen, couches, murphy bed, table, big screen TV and Foosball table. My oldest son, 23, 'lived' down there during our time at the house. We had Foosball tournaments and enjoyed the coolness of the room. The main kitchen came well stocked with dishes, spices, and other stuff we found really useful on our trip. The upstairs bathroom had a jetted tub which all my kids loved!
The view from the deck was amazing, especially at night. While not on the river itself the view of the river was awesome (better than homes lower down). We spend more than 1 night out there looking at the stars and the river. The community pool was used every day (twice a day!) and we played volleyball on the grass lawn behind it. While we don't mind swimming in lakes/rivers having the pool as our swimming place was much, much better for our kids.
Chelan is only 20min away so it was super easy to visit the town, hit Safeway/Wal-Mart for stuff and go out to dinner if we wanted (we only ate out 1 night!).
Even better than that house are the owners. We had a slight issue with Wasps on the first night and when we contacted the owners they immediately called us back and helped us handle the situation. After the first night...no more problems! We've always appreciated great 'customer service' and the owners of this house are as good as it gets.
We'd highly recommend staying in this house. It was perfect for our large single family and is a place we are most certainly going to look to come back to, maybe with a second family, in the future."
