Amazing views & home!!

  • 5 of 5

This home was absolutely perfect for our weekend celebration getaway! The views were spectacular, the property was well maintained, and there was plenty of space to lounge and hangout. We loved the privacy of the home but also that we were close enough to the city center if we needed to run to the store. Thanks so much for an awesome stay! We would definitely go back in the future :)

Splendid views amongst a comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay on the property. There was ample room for everyone, plenty of beds and bathrooms. Kitchen had all the utensils and knick knacks needed to have a full family meal. Walking around the 4 acres and enjoying the view was the best. Hot Tub was pretty popular too! We will definitely stay here again!

Large, spacious area with a great view!

  • 5 of 5

There were 9 adults and at no time did we feel cramped or overcrowded in this lovely house! Lots of room to spread out and tables big enough, inside and out, to eat and play games on.

We spent as much time as we could outside to play yard games, ride bikes and just visit, though the dates we stayed there were during the BC fires and it was pretty smokey but we made the best of it and really enjoyed our stay. We would come back again and recommend this house for your stay.

Thank You ~

About Kit MacPherson

The Halverson Family bought this home in June of 2011. We immediately fell in love with the serenity and beauty of the property and felt it was a place our family could enjoy for many years to come.

Kit MacPherson purchased this house in 2011

Why Kit MacPherson chose Manson

The location of this property immediately drew us to the lake and the mountains. The home was originally built for Ivan and Velma Morse to retire to. They placed the house perfectly into the hillside and planted beautiful gardens to compliment the home. When Velma moved, the home was purchased and run as a Bed and Breakfast. This gave us the perfect set up to have multiple families come and visit.

What makes this house unique

Nestled in the hills overlooking Lake Chelan, our home offers a place where the entire family can enjoy, playing, reading, BBQ'ing, relaxing or just taking in the breathtaking scenery of the lake and mountains. It offers year round entertainment, whether you like to cross country ski, sled or go boating in the summer. There are few places as beautiful.
