Large groups of up to 10 guests will love a lakeside stay at Helios Hills, a sprawling three-bedroom retreat on Lake Chelan. With a dog-friendly attitude, an 800-square-foot deck, 140 feet of waterfront that includes a dock, and a great location just minutes from wineries, golf courses, casinos, restaurants, and more. It'll set the stage for an incredible trip to one of Washington's premier vacation destinations!
Nestled in a private cove at the base of apple orchards, the home's location is great for both sightseeing in town and exploring the lake's north shores. Head three-and-a-half miles south for family-friendly dining at The Sunset Bar and Grill, drive 12 miles south to shop in Historic Downtown Chelan, or go a half-mile farther from downtown for all ages fun at Slidewaters Waterpark.
Wide picture windows with impressive lakefront views beautifully compliment cabin decor and plush furnishings in the classic A-frame design of this home. Rest between all your water-themed adventures in the spacious living area, where you'll find comfortable couches for taking a nap or lounging with your group on a movie night (the room's TV features a DVD player).
With the home's western exposure, you're guaranteed plenty of sunshine, so head outside to soak up the sun-drenched views. Your options include a downstairs dock that extends out into the lake and an upstairs deck and patio with lounge chairs and a glass-top table that makes a great place for an al fresco meal.
Speaking of dining, you'll find everything you need to whip up homemade meals in the open-concept kitchen, which features modern appliances, assorted cookware, and ample countertops. When it's best to dine indoors, there's even seating at a six-seat table nearby. And don't worry about lengthy cleanups - a dishwasher takes care of it all.
Afterward, continue the group activities with a game of cornhole outside, or pull out some board games and puzzles for a fun-filled evening indoors. The home's backyard is even fenced-in so that you can let your dogs run around (up to two are welcome with a small nightly fee). You could also bait a fishing line and cast right off the dock, then toss your fresh catch on the deck's gas grill for a tasty barbecue.
When it's time to call it a day, retreat to any of three bedrooms on two floors. Up to 10 guests are accommodated in all. The main floor's master suite features its own full bathroom and the second bathroom is split between the upstairs two bedrooms.
Wake with a fresh cup of coffee in the kitchen, then get ready for a new day of adventures. Head south for a walk along the waterfront followed by a picnic at Chelan Riverwalk Park, or lace up some sturdy boots for a hike in the hills overlooking Chelan. On the way back home, grab a meal at the locally owned Northshore Cafe, or pull up a seat at any of the sports bars in Manson.
You could also rent boats, jet skis, inner tubes, and more at Shoreline Watercraft and Boat Rental, or spend the day sampling acclaimed vintages at over a dozen wineries in the area.
Winter visitors will love the area's options, too, which include skiing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, and other snow sports at Echo Valley Ski Area (13 miles north), plus special events in downtown Chelan.
