About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 1 Half Baths, Sleeps 10

Perched over the glittering bay of Lake Chelan, Above the Bay Retreat is a remarkable two-story Manson vacation home offering many of the must-have amenities you deserve in a great getaway. Enjoy a private seasonal pool, hot tub, game room, four TVs, and a wrap-around deck with views for miles.

Within a short stroll you can visit scenic Manson Bay Park and Marina, which has picnic spots and 32 boat slips. Less than a mile away is the town of Manson itself with restaurants, wine tasting rooms reflecting the area's vineyards, shops, and provisions at the weekly farmer's market.

Featuring modern decor with pops of color and character throughout, you'll feel at ease. Start on the wrap-around deck where you can grill up a family meal. From the lower deck, find the pool and hot tub.

Inside, the great room allows everyone to gather over dinner, a movie on the flatscreen TV, or board games while the sun sets outside the wall of windows. The kitchen area features a breakfast bar, tools, appliances, and a gorgeous banquet-style dining table. Head downstairs to the game room for Ping-Pong and foosball plus a kitchenette so you don't have to run around the house for a glass of water or a snack.

When it's time for bed, find plenty of room for all 10 guests. Two bedrooms each have a California king bed, two each have a queen, and there are two twin bunk bed sets and a single twin. Three bathrooms, a washer and dryer, telescope, and WiFi top everything off (and you thought a hot tub couldn't make things better!).

From Benson Vineyards Estate (four miles away) to Tsillan Winery on the other side of the lake, and the town of Chelan nine miles southeast, you'll have so much exploring to do beyond the lake. Dine, shop, stroll, or indulge.

Your next Lake Chelan vacation rental should be a memorable one, so make it happen at Above the Bay!

*Please be aware that all guests must be at least 25 years of age unless accompanied by parent or legal guardian. Thank you.*

About Vacasa of the North Central Cascades

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Simply Great

All I could expect from a vacation rental, very clean with all the amenities we would need. Convenient location with easy access to beach, parks, shopping and boat rentals, etc.

Fun house

  • 4 of 5

The house was very clean with ample room for our group though we ate in 2 shifts as the table was not large enough for everyone. We were able to work around the awkward layout of bathrooms in 3 bedrooms, but none in the 4th. The frustration was that we had spotty wifi and internet.

lovely view ----period

  • 1 of 5

the house was not up to vrbo standards of houses we previously rented. it lacked basic amenities like dish towels, dish clothes, wash cloths, and WINE GLASSES!! this is an area now known for their wine and tasting rooms!!! it also had a dirty pool and hot tub, moldy shower stall and a dirty oven that set off the smoke alarm...

Owner's Response: We are very sorry to hear that this guest had some housekeeping and maintenance issues during the stay. The home has since been stocked with the kitchen supplies including towels and wine glasses. The Hot tub and pool have also been addressed and scheduled for regular maintenance. We thank this guest for the valuable feedback and appreciate the opportunity to improve on the home.

The original booking photos of this home do not match the home we stayed in. We are very disappointed and feel cheated. We use VRBO multiple times every year and this is unacceptable.

Owner's Response: We apologize for any misunderstandings that might have occurred during this stay. We will verify all pictures are posted of the unit guests will be staying in.
