About the property

A Magical Place Where People Gather: Waterfront Home and Cabana On One Property

Nowhere else on Lake Chelan will you find a waterfront home AND a cabana directly on the water, all on one property!

IMAGINE yourself enjoying water sports on the deep blue water of Lake Chelan. You are staying in a large house and a cabana on a dock. Wake up each morning to beautiful lake views. Word-class wineries, golfing, winter activities.

The Lake Chelan House and Cabana is a multi-faceted waterfront experience! The Cabana (on the dock, a few steps outside to the water) will sleep up to 5 adults (a bunk bed with a double/queen on the bottom and a twin on top, as well as a pull out futon). The futon will sleep 2 small children, if need be. There is a fully-equipped kitchen, a bathroom, and small dining area inside. Outside, a picnic table and a barbecue area to cook on. Large seating area facing the spectacular water and mountain views! Two buoys available to accommodate your water skis and/or boats.

The House has a large great room (fully-equipped kitchen, dining room, and living room) with a beautiful brick freestanding fireplace. There is an eating bar counter that seats 4 and a large table in the dining room. Step outside the kitchen door and you will find yourself on a deck with a few eating configurations and a large barbecue grill for cooking on. GREAT lakefront views! Everything is high quality!

The House has two bedrooms at ground floor level. One room (the 'Twin' room) has a bunk bed and a matching daybed/twin bed. The second ground floor bedroom (the 'Queen' room) has a queen bed and a pull out futon. It also has AMAZING waterfront views!

Now to the 'King' room master suite! Walk up a flight of stairs and you are in your own world! A king-sized bed, a reading corner, your own balcony, and a master bathroom that is HUGE! Two sinks and a large walk-in shower with two shower heads, glass block, and a skylight! The views from the master bedroom rival none! A clear blue lake, mountains, and green vineyards to behold! And the use of a comfy hammock on a large deck, in case you want to take a nap outside or sleep under a covered roof and gaze at the stars!

Bring your family and friends to Lake Chelan and create memories that you will cherish forever!


Family vacation? Company retreat? Multi-family gathering or romantic getaway? This property will accommodate all of your needs!

Why Jody A. Engle chose Chelan

Location, location, location!

What makes this house unique

The waterfront House sits on a hillside with spectacular views of the crystal blue water and tall mountains. There is a vacant lot next to the House that is included on the property. If you need a location for a small wedding rehearsal dinner or family reunion, this is an ideal option! Or a much-needed family vacation or retreat! Or if you need parking for large varied gatherings, it's available.

There is a large 700 square foot partially wrapping deck facing the water on the ground level of the two story House. New benches for additional seating line the deck. Waterfront views from the living room, dining room, kitchen, one downstairs bedroom, and the upstairs master bedroom suite.

Several steps down the hillside and you are at The Cabana.

The Cabana is the ultimate 'Lake Chelan experience'. The Cabana sits directly on the dock above water. There is a new privacy gate and fence, along with an outdoor kitchen. The dock bridge is reinforced to accommodate the weight of a small pickup truck, so parking is readily available.

WiFi is available for use in The House and The Cabana.

Beautiful spot with easy access to the lake!

  • 5 of 5

Very large home and easily accessible cabana right on the lake! House is above the highway and the cabana is just across the highway. Cabana has full kitchen so there is no need to run back and forth to grab food or drinks. The cabana dock is amazing and that is where we spent most of our time.

We will definitely be staying here again. Jody was a pleasure to work with and a great communicator. Can't wait to come back next summer!

Great and fun place for family.

  • 5 of 5

Both the house and the cabana were really cleaned. All the supplies were well stocked and cleaned as well. The plumbing & utilities were well operated as it should, I rented quite a few places in my life time and most of the time I’d run into some sort of plumbing/utility issues, but not his time, very smooth.

The owner, Jody, has been very, very helpful from the beginning to the end. Checking on us via text just to make sure everything is in line and ok, and of course if any things else we may need etc. Very nice to have such great communications. Would definitely recommend to friends and families.

Amazing!! There are only a few dock cabanas left on Lake Chelan

  • 4 of 5

We absolutely loved the property. The house was clean and had plenty of room, we never felt like we were in each others way. The teens quickly took over the cabana for their own at night, but we made them share during the day. Seemed like all day was spent on the dock or in the water while evenings were up at the house and in the yard.

There was lots of parking at the house and one spot for a smaller vehicle on the dock.

The only reason this didn't get 5 stars, the AC is worn out. It still worked, but couldn't keep up on warmer days.

Bottom line, we have already made plans to return next year. I'm very excited for another wonderful week on the lake!!

Owner's Response: Chris, thank you for staying at our property! We were SO delighted to have you as a guest. You are THE BEST! We did discover after you left that the air conditioner was leaking refrigerant. We had it repaired and the next time you stay, the house will be much cooler! Thanks for alerting us to this issue! We look forward to your stay next year! :) :)

The owners do a great job making sure everything is taken care of prior to your arrival and are available at any time if you have a question. They made us feel truly like guests. We have stayed here before and will stay here again.

Beautiful, spacious house right on the water.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was just as advertised. The house was amazing, and the cabana was perfect! There's a beautiful yard that is perfect for games, and the interior of the house is outfitted with everything you would ever need. The owner went above and beyond to make sure that our stay was perfect. She was absolutely amazing throughout the process.
