About Gail and David Wailes

David has loved Lake Chelan since he was a young boy, visiting his Aunt an Uncle's cabin up on the Little Butte. He is a builder and bought the Lake house in 2007 with the hope of building the property into an even more grand and lovely place, and at the same time enjoying it while living there. He continues to work his magic and is always making some part of the property more beautiful. In 2008 Gail came along and ever since we have been going back and forth from Redmond Wa. where we married in Aug. of 2010. Every season has it's loveliness and we are there as much as possible. We love to take our boat out in the summer months for excursions to Chelan, Wapato or Manson and especially for a cocktail cruise just before sunset. We enjoy walking our dog Sasha up to Fields Point Landing and always meet other dog walkers along the way. We hope that like us you enjoy all that Lake Chelan has to offer and you want to keep comming back too.

Thank you

What makes this house unique

The lake can look like glass anytime of the day as there is just less traffic here. It is quiet, peaceful and so lovely.

Just right!

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and their families came out to Seattle from New England for a family wedding. The following week we spent together in this very comfortable lakeside home. We were a total of 11 people, ages from 60 to 11. Plenty of room and privacy for everyone. Downstairs we called Kid Heaven - the room sleeps 6, plus a private bedroom. Mornings spent on the deck greeting the sun with coffee in hand. All meals taken on the long table on the top deck. The kids loved the diving board! And of course all of us loved the lake. Well stocked kitchen. Plenty of towels and games. Owners very helpful and friendly. Would return in a heartbeat.

Perfect for Extended Family and 2 Great Dogs

  • 5 of 5

This dog friendly, kid friendly, old people friendly, and very comfortable home was a really welcome treat for our week long family vacation this past July! Although directions to the home are clear, it's easy to get hung up on the steep and narrow roads that surround the property. They have a very, VERY, kind neighbor above who will assist when needed, but it's probably best to leave your boat or trailer up top and walk down if you're unsure of the location and parking accommodations. There's plenty of parking at the house for vehicles and we were able to rent a space for the boat trailer at 25 mile creek for about $5.00 a day.

There's 2 master bedrooms with ceiling fans on the main floor with a shared bathroom. The kitchen and main deck is also on the main floor which is where we spent most of our time when not sunbathing on the lawn or out on the water. The downstairs houses kids and then some! Our kids and cousins (ages 10-21) had a wonderful time with the board games and comfortable sleeping accommodations! There's a shared bathroom downstairs and a separate queen bedroom that worked great for my in laws. Washer and dryer too.

This is an AWESOME rental for a larger group! We met the owners and their dog during our stay and they were very kind and engaging, happy to hear feedback.

We all tidied up nicely prior to departure and simply followed the rules.

Not long afterward we got a lovely note from the owners and our full deposit back.

Highly recommended!

Perfect for a large group

  • 4 of 5

I stayed at this house with a large group of friends during a summer weekend in July. The house is right on the water with your own personal dock and diving board:) There are three decks in addition to the lower dock with great seating area large enough for big groups. The decks are absolutely amazing! Enjoying dinner on the deck with beautiful view of Lake Chelan with all your friends are some of my favorite memories from this trip. The house is far enough away from town to feel like you have your own personal piece of the lake but close enough driving distance to do activities in town. The inside of the house is a little dated and more bedrooms/bathrooms would have been nice for a group our size but our group hung out a majority of the time outside by the lake so this wasn't a huge issue. The owners were quite accessible via email/phone and responsive to our groups need. They even let us bring extra dogs! Would definitely rent again!

Fantastic house by the lake

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house with a group of friends around the 4th of July and we were very happy with it!

The house is right next to the lake (and you can access it from the house). The view on the decks is fantastic and the interior of the house is very accommodating.

The owners are great people and were right next door and made themselves available to us in case we needed help.

I'd rent this house again for sure.

Perfect for a girls weekend

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for a girls weekend and it could not have been better. The location, the view and set up of the house was perfect for our wine tasting themed weekend. We had a large group and there was plenty of room for everyone to be comfortable the entire time. It's in great proximity to Nefarious, Tunnel Hill, Tsillian and Karma wineries and just far enough away from town that the mornings and evenings are incredibly peaceful. The deck and dock were by far the the groups favorite part with GORGEOUS views of the lake. I definitely look forward to spending more time here in the future.

Our Family Had A Blast

  • 5 of 5

Contrary to the first review, we found this home to be amazing! All of the kitchen utensils were great, they provided us with everything we needed to have a great trip! The beds were comfortable, the linens were all of good quality. There was plenty of seating on each of the three deprecate decks. The views truly are amazing any time of day. Its a very peaceful location, not a lot of boat or auto traffic. The jacuzzi is huge. We rented a boat from Lakeshore Rentals and recieved a great price. Thank you We will see you next year!
