About Michael and Susie Schmidley

From Seattle WA, Love spending time with my family relaxing by the pool and boating around the lake.

Michael and Susie Schmidley purchased this condo in 2008

Why Michael and Susie Schmidley chose Lake Chelan

A quick getaway from Seattle for fun in the warm sun.

What makes this condo unique

Sitting on the belcony and watching the sunsets which are nothing short of amazing. The lake/pool is less then 100 ft from condo, Main complex is within walking distance from condo. A covered assigned car port is great so that you don't have to get in a car that has been out in the sun all day.

Best Summer Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We've been vacationing at this condo every summer! The condo has an unbeatable view and conveniently located next to the pool and lake (especially with 3 kids!). The resort has so much to do and the staff is friendly. The condo is well stocked with everything you'll need. The owners are easy and great to work with. We are looking forward to our next stay!

This is our 4th year staying at this condo and we love it! You can't find another condo in Chelan that is located right next to the lake swimming area AND the swimming pool! Not only that but they provide a buoy and docking for free! And the view from the condo is spectacular!

The resort grounds are immaculate and there are so many amenities available.

You can tell the owners take great pride in their vacation home as it's well kept. Every year there's something that has been updated. This year they've redecorated their home and it looks amazing. We could never afford to own a place like this so we are super appreciative that they are willing to share their own vacation home for us to enjoy. We consider it as if it's our own vacation home! We are surprised to see these reviews with less than 5 stars. I think folks forget that this is someone's home that they are opening up for others to enjoy and not a 5 star resort business.

Thank you Michael and Susie for sharing your home, and we look forward to many more years of vacations in it!

Stunning views

  • 4 of 5

The property is in need of updating as the kitchen and bathroom are both very tired however with the exception of the loft fan, everything was functional and clean. The property is well stocked and had everything we could want for our stay.

The real value of the property though is the view from the balcony, it is simply stunning and worth the rental for that alone. The resort itself was very well maintained and having so many swimming pools, it never felt busy even on Labor Day weekend.

While some fresh paint and some updates would improve the overall feel of the property, I would have no hesitation in recommending it to my friends.

Out Dated & Uncomfortable

  • 2 of 5

We have vacationed in Chelan every summer for the past decade and have always rented condos. The location of this condo at Lake Chelan Shores was unbeatable!! The condo had an amazing view of the lake and mountains. It was literally steps to a great pool, as well as the lake, which had floating pontoons to rest on and catch some sun. Unfortunately, that was all that we liked about this condo. Besides the living room where it looks like there is a newer couch and tables, the condo was REALLY out dated. The kitchen cabinets smelled musty, most of the appliances were hard to use because they were so old and there was a weird smell when you would turn the water on in the sink. The loft area really seemed like nobody had stepped foot up there in a few years. The ceiling fan (which was so very old!) would stop working in the middle of the night and it would get very hot up there. The blinds were broken and there were spider webs all over the ceiling. The drawers also smelled musty and the beds were horrible! My kids had achy necks and backs by the time we left. The master bedroom had a king size bed, which sounds great when you are on vacation...until you lay down on it. It was incredibly hard and flat, the linens were awful (felt blankets!) and very squeaky. And last but not least, the TV in the living room and the washer and dryer didn't work. We were able to get the TV to start working but unfortunately we were never able to use the washer or dryer and had to hang dry our towels and bathing suites.

Needless to say we were unbelievably disappointed with our time in this condo. We got the sense that the owners purchased the condo a long time ago, furnished it and then forgot about it. We were so very uncomfortable and will not be coming back.

Owner's Response: It’s unfortunately that this guest couldn’t appreciate our family's lake front condo. We had recently remodeled the condo and plan on continuing to do so over the next couple of years. In our recent updates over the last 2 years we replaced the flooring, purchased new furniture for the living area, dining area and patio (including plasma TVs for the bedroom and living area), replaced the washer and dryer, refrigerator and dishwasher, and installed new living room blinds. In addition to these updates, we replaced all of the dishes and drink ware prior to this summer. We strive to continuously replace kitchen equipment as needed. The TV and washer and dryer are new and in working condition and the issue seems to be more on the guest’s inability to operate them. The loft area is frequently used not only by our family but the majority of our guests, which are typically families of 4 (2 adults, 2 children). The blinds upstairs were just recently reported as broken this summer and will be custom ordered for next summer. This condo has been in our family for many years, and our families have enjoyed vacationing there every year. We have a great appreciation for the location and lake view as it’s hard to find a condo literally right on the water with swimming area, pool and boat buoy conveniently located right out your door. It’s unfortunate this guest could not appreciate the condo given its amazing location and recent updates.

Great location. Unit needs some TLC.

  • 3 of 5

Lake Chelan Shores is a great place to stay. The grounds are impeccably maintained. The pools are clean and swimming areas in the lake are wonderful. This unit is in a perfect location overlooking the lake with no obstructed views. It is well appointed with everything we needed - from BBQing to board games and everything in between. The critique is that nothing has been updates in the 25+ years since it was build. For example, this kitchen is like stepping back in time and the showerhead is loose from a large hole in the wall. With a little TLC, this place could be perfect.
