About the property

Newly refurbished, landmark Stonehouse at Tunnel Hill Winery! Sleeps up to 8.

Estate Winery! Private Golf Practice Area! Gorgeous Views! You get it all at Tunnel Hill Winery's historical stone house which was completely updated for vacation rental in 2015.

Adjacent to the winery and vineyards located on Sunshine Farm, the home is 3.5 miles west of downtown Chelan and within 1 mile of 4 other wineries.

Created with stone removed when the tunnel to Chelan was built in the 1930s, the bright, comfortable home has outstanding views of lake, mountains and even its own private golf practice area.

The main level provides a cozy space for 1 to 2 couples or utilize the large upstairs dormer room to sleep an overall total of 8 people in beds. (Lowest level is not usually part of rental, although can be added for additional fee if extra bed and bath are needed; has separate entrance and may be occasionally occupied by our quiet family guests or have its kitchen being used for winery events.)

New furnishings and updating throughout home, include two stunning new tiled bathrooms on main level, 2 queen-size beds on main level and 4 twin beds upstairs. Huge 50" flat-screen TV in living area surrounded by large, comfortable sofas.

Spacious outside deck with gas grill and picnic table has views of Lake Chelan and vineyards with access lawns and side parking area.

GOLFERS! Best of all, this home has a private 4-acre short-game practice area — with lush green grass and gorgeous views — just above the winery. Features 6 target flags from 25 to 130 yards, three tee box areas. An artificial-turf putting green is being installed for summer of 2016. Excellent short-game improvement opportunity! Irons, practice balls and shag bag provided. After warming up, choose from four world-class golf courses in area: Bear Mountain Ranch (1/2 mile to west), Lake Chelan Golf (5 miles, otherside of downtown), Desert Canyon Golf (15 miles to southeast) in Orondo, Gamble Sands (30 miles north) in Brewster. Plus, putt-putt courses in downtown Chelan and at Desert Canyon Golf in Orondo.


You will be walking distance to five wineries, a gourmet restaurant, convenience store and the Sunshine Farm Market. Just over three miles from historical downtown Chelan and the Riverwalk Park. Only two miles from Lakeside where you'll find boat and jetski rental, waterslides and Lady of the Lake ferry to Stehekin (a community at head of 55-mile long lake accessible only by hiking, boat or air.) About twelve miles around on the north shore of the lake you'll find Manson and the Mill Bay Casino. Almost 20 wineries with tasting rooms are in the Chelan/Manson area.


The owners welcoming you are the Evans family, long-time residents of Chelan, who operate the Sunshine Farm and Tunnel Hill Winery. As guests you will receive complimentary wine tastings and 10% off purchases at winery.

Great weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house was great. Loved the wine tasting and feeding the goats at the market next door. We were in town as a family for a wedding but this would also make a lovely grown ups only get away!

Perfect location and super charming home!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Tunnel Hill House for our Aug. 2017 wedding at Tunnel Hill Winery. It was the perfect size for our family of 8 staying here. The home has so much character! We loved the view overlooking the lake, and the ground of the winery being your "backyard" was amazing! We can't say enough good things about this property and our stay here. A huge thank you to the property owners for a fabulous stay!

Perfect vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

Wow what an amazing rental! I could not have asked for a better place. The house is located right across the street from the lake and has incredible views. The grounds that surround the house are beautifully landscaped and truly felt like a fairy tale. The house itself is older (built in the 1930's) but has all the charm and character that one would expect. You can tell that this house has been well cared for over the years. The two bedrooms down stairs are great size and beds are comfortable. The upstairs loft has four twin beds that are perfect for kids. There are plenty of outdoors spaces to enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner and a well stocked kitchen to whip up what ever you like. You have access to the vineyards and farm behind the house and it was perfect for an early evening walk. This house would be perfect for families and kid-less vacationers as well!

On the mornings we saw the owner walking around tending to the gardens and he was a delight to chat with. Michelle (who arranges all the rentals) was amazing! She was very responsive, friendly, and courteous.There was a wonderful bottle of wine and a coupon to be used at the winery. We truly had a amazing weekend away. I would stay here again in a heart beat!
