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 Lake Chelan

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.

Beautiful Location

This property was the perfect location and setting for our weekend getaway. The property was very well kept and the house had everything we needed.

Stunning and so comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This house is quite a find. Close to everything, but quiet and private. We loved the fact that we were in the backyard of a vineyard. The beds were very comfortable, kitchen stocked with everything you would need as far as pots, pans and cooking utensils. Absolutely stunning view! Would highly recommend this house, and look forward to returning some day.

This house was absolutely beautiful! The deck was heaven to sit out on and relax with family and friends we loved the gazebo with the chandelier. The only down side was that the heat pump went out the 2nd night and it was 86-92• inside while it was 100-97 outside. Utube saved the last night:) I would most definitely go back to this home now that we know what to do if it happens again because sometimes stuff happens and part of this was our fault for not calling for help earlier. The owner was most gracious and was all over it once we made her aware. I would be willing to give this house a second, third,fourth and many more chances!! It's fantastic for 3 yrs- olds to 60+ yr olds:)

Rural Getaway

  • 5 of 5

11 of my family members gathered this October for a weekend get together. The daylight basement was perfect for my daughter, son in law, their standard poodle and 6 and 9 year old sons. In another part of the basement my husband and I had our own Bath, TV area and bedroom. There are 2 other bedrooms upstairs.

. The adults spent time on the spacious deck while the boys climbed a tree and ran crazy on the spacious lawn. If they had brought their bikes they could have ridden on the circular driveway.

There are NO close neighbors - lots of privacy. We ate out mostly but I did use the Viking gas stove once and it was a treat.

When snow comes the lawn or the driveway will be perfect for young ones to sled on.

Beyond beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This house has it all - plenty of space for 8 of us, the hot tub was fantastic, the yard was in perfect shape for lawn games and hanging out, the deck is where we ate & drank & got caught up with old friends because the view is awe inspiring! We enjoyed being so close to 2 incredible wineries to end the day on our way home. The only suggestion we would make is that they note on the listing that there have been cats present, I think the owner must bring theirs regularly. 2 of our guests were popping allergy pills all weekend but it didn't slow us down!

Owner's Response: Thanks Danielle -- we enjoy the view and wineries too! No cats though, our listing says we don't allow cats. As far as I know, there has never been a cat in the house since we remodeled it in 2010. We do allow dogs, so maybe your guest is allergic to dogs. Hope you come and enjoy again!

end of April 2014 / girls getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Morse House is awesome! The views are beyond spectacular and the house itself is lovely. Even better, it's walking distance from a fun winery. I hope to stay here again in the future and would most certainly recommend this house to others.
