About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps up to 8 adults and 6 kids)

For those who enjoy boating & water-skiing in the summer or snow skiing in winter, top ranked golf in spring, summer & winter, river-rafting in the spring, or a cozy fall & winter wine & snow adventure, this is the place for you! The Turtle Rock House is 15 minutes away from Desert Canyon and 45 minutes to Gamble Sands, 30 minutes away from Mission Ridge Ski Resort, and steps away from water-skiing on the glassy waters of the Columbia River. You can watch the big game on the 67' HDTV, play ping pong/air hockey/shuffleboard or foosball in the game room, or take a relaxing hot tub after your snow or water ski.

About Kristy Guise

Four longtime friends purchased the property in 2002 after their first children were born, with hopes of creating a place that their families and friends could enjoy for years to come. Between the two families we have 7 children, and over the past 15 years it has been a fantastic place to gather for holidays, family reunions, birthdays and year-round getaways.

Why Kristy Guise chose East Wenatchee

115 feet of serene lakefront makes this the ideal setting to enjoy the hot eastern Washington sunshine. The glass water is perfect for boating and all water sports. The winter brings snow and great skiing at Mission Ridge and a great hidden family ski gem called Badger Mountain just 30 minutes away. It offers a very private setting away from the busy city, yet only 7 miles away from the conveniences of Wenatchee, including restaurants, shopping, movie theaters, grocery stores, Costco and year-round sporting events. Several wineries are close by as well. Spring and fall offer unique weather with warmer temperatures and more sunshine both earlier in the spring and later in the fall than anywhere else in Washington.

What makes this house unique

The property is very well layed out, great for large groups. There are 10 beds. 3 families can all have their own bedrooms and bathrooms, with the bunkroom being a perfect spot for all of the kids. The house is well-stocked for large family and multi-generational groups with multiple BBQ's, large TV's with plenty of seating, a large game room for kids both young and old, and a newly remodeled, well-equipped kitchen to cook for a crowd. There is a boat launch on the property and a private dock. There is something for everyone either on-site or close by: water sports, water or snow skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, waterslide park, wineries, movie theater, shopping, restaurants.

Great home on the river

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect family vacation home. We had 2 families with children and my parents and there was more than enough room for all of us to sleep comfortably. The newly remodeled kitchen is beautiful (and huge!), the game room was a hit with the 5 kids (and the adults) and having our own private boat dock was awesome. The river was fairly calm and the island was fun to paddle over to and then climb up. The location was great too - it's close to Wenatchee so going in for forgotten items was quick and painless and Leavenworth is only a 30 minute drive. I would definitely stay here again.

Outstanding House -- highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 10 road bike riders had a great experience at the Turtle Rock house. It has a lot of space and has been beautifully updated. We especially enjoyed the river access and beautiful views from the deck at dinner time with the sun setting over Turtle Rock. Easy access to Wenatchee and Chelan make it versatile for going out but we preferred to stay in and enjoy the terrific house and property. The upstairs area was so compelling that our group did not even take full advantage of the fun game room and hot tub -- we will save that for next time. People were content to just enjoy the top floor views and easy access to the updated kitchen. Extra bonus is dealing with the owner, Kristy, who made arranging the details of a stay seamless. Highest recommendation!

The most amazing house...

  • 5 of 5

Our bike racing team booked this home to headquarter for the Tour de Bloom stage race. There isn't anything the house doesn't have. Game room...fully stocked - check, deck with amazing views of the lake - check, ample space for our whole crew - check, a huge kitchen with everything you need - check. The owners of this home are one of a kind. They have gone out of their way to make sure their guests are comfortable, relaxed and happy. We've already booked this house for next year. Want a 10 out of a 10 vacation this one.

Car: recommended

For those families that love the outdoors - boating and best waterskiing conditions on the planet! Golf and the great courses like Gamble Sands, Desert Canyon, and Wenatchee country club. Winter snow skiing at nearby Mission Ridge resort, or river rafting on the Wenatchee river - this is the place!

Spring, summer, fall and winter are all the perfect time to tour several great wineries in the area. There are so many available recreational choices year-round that you will have to decide how many activities you have time for! Biking and hiking trails for all ages and abilities nearby, too!

If your are looking for a home for sports tournaments in wenatchee we are only 6 miles north of the main bridge.

The private home even has its own boat ramp to make it easy to launch and the dock can accomodate a couple boats.
