Lovely lakefront home w/private dock & spacious back deck facing Lake Chelan!

This adorable lakefront Chelan vacation rental offers year-round fun for the entire family (up to eight guests). Not only will you enjoy homey comforts like WiFi and a laundry room, but you'll even have a shared dock to dive off with a private buoy to Moor your boat.

Set right off Highway 150, access to all kinds of activities are within a short drive. Although you can easily stay happily occupied playing in the lake and running through your grassy backyard, feel free to venture out and play a round of golf, visit nearby wineries, or take a bike tour.

Cozy and practical, Water's Edge will make you feel right at home.

Spend a rare rainy day indoors watching movies and playing games in the living room. Two loveseats, an armchair, and a rocking chair offer plenty of comfortable seating, so you can relax and catch up with loved ones. Flip on the flatscreen TV to catch your favorite cable shows, or bring along a DVD or VHS to pop in the attached player.

Set right behind the living room is a full kitchen with an attached eating area, which overlooks the sparkling lake. There's room for six at the pub-height table, and plenty more seating out back on the patio. Or take your plate of food and walk down to the dock to dip your toes in the water while enjoying a tasty home-cooked meal.

Feeding eight people can get expensive on vacation! But with a full kitchen, you can save some money and keep bellies full by whipping up tasty meals at home. Along with major appliances, this kitchen even comes equipped with a microwave, coffeemaker, toaster, and dishwasher!

No need for sleeping bags and air mattresses here with four beds and two sofabeds to keep all eight guests well rested for tomorrow's activities. A welcoming king-size bed occupies one bedroom, which boasts access to the front deck. The second bedroom features a queen-size bed, and the third bedroom has a twin-over-full bunk bed.

If you're up for a scenic drive around the lake, take a tour and sample wines at Tunnel Hill Winery, named one of the best in town. But with over 20 wineries nearby, you can pick and choose and easily find a favorite. Take a break from cooking at home for a meal and try the El Vaquero Restaurant.

Boating, waterskiing, fishing, and a thrilling visit to Slidewaters are great for warmer weather, while snow tubing, cross-country skiing, and downhill skiing at Echo Valley are perfect for winter visits.

With family or friends in snow or heat, this charming Lake Chelan vacation rental will become an annual getaway spot.

Right on the water plenty of yard space for games along with seating. Plan to stay again

We loved the deck looking out to the lake. We spent most of our time between the deck and swimming. House is comfortable but we pretty much only slept in it and cooked. Would highly recommend.

Certainly the home could be remodeled, but then it would twice as much to rent. What was lacking on the inside was certainly more than made up for with the waterfront beach and relaxing deck. The location was perfect. It was walking distance from Lake Chelan Winery and BBQ. It was minutes from the casino, and just outside of town.

We would gladly stay again.

amazing view, huge deck, quiet location

Place was dirty. Towels were wet and looked like they were 20 years old. some of the silverware was very dirty. I had to wash any dish that we used for eating. There were spider webs and dust everywhere.
One of the beds did not have sheets on it.
Door to the patio in the master bedroom was broken.
In multiple places, furniture was broken and unclean.
Blinds in the bedroom (with two bunk beds were broken).
On top of everything, at 8:30 AM on Saturday, i had a lady came and started mowing the grass waking up the kids.. Overall, my worst experience renting a house from the owner. I would never do it again.. better stay in the hotel then you know that everything will be taken care of .. To top it all off, at night, there are bats flying around.. we could only enjoy the patio until the sunset and then you need to hide from bats inside the house.

Manager response:
We apologize that cleanliness was not up to our usual standards. We were unable to find any broken furnishings or blinds though we do recognize some of it is older. We are sorry to see that landscaping disturbed our guest; unfortunately, it has to be done on their schedule. Living in fruit country there are a lot of fruit bats, but they are harmless. Thank you!

This place's location/deck/yard are worth 5 stars. However too many issues changed my rating.

This place had little to no toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags, and dishwasher soap. I'm sorry but if I'm renting this place and spending a lot of money, those items should be stocked. I had to run to the store to buy all and that should never happen with a rental. There is also a bug issue. Whomever is cleaning needs to clean a little better.

Working with Vacasa was really easy. I would rent from them again but would check supplies first.

Very nice and peaceful . First vacation house I ever been to. I love the privacy,
Although whoever cleans up the place could had done better but overall I would definitely recommend this house!!!!

Beautiful place on the water. Loved sitting out on the deck enjoying a glass of wine with friends and taking in the view.
Vanessa G. Apr 2018
There were no large garbage bags for us to use and we did not know we would need them so it would of been nice to know ahead of time to bring some. There was also a very limited amount of toilet paper for the amount of people that were staying so that would of been nice to know as well. Everything was nice and clean. The only thing that I could think of is the time they chose to do the yard work. The outdoor area is really pretty and spacious to enjoy but having the yard done so early and having people in the space without being friendly made that part of the morning awkward. We slept with the windows open and it was a much earlier wake up call than we all anticipated with the lawnmowers on by our windows so early. The bunk beds could use some maintenance, they are every squeaky and wobbly as you climb up and down. So maybe just some tightening of nuts and bolts would aid with this. The outdoor area of the home is so lovely and sits right under the deck cover. We enjoyed a couple meals outdoors in the sunshine. The location of the home is so close to everything, we spent so much time outdoors and the weather was perfect.
Manager response:
We apologize for the disappointments this guest had with their stay. We have followed-up with housekeeping about stocking the home, and maintenance has tightened up the bunk bed. Unfortunately, we have no control of when the caretaker comes to maintain the lawn and are sorry to see it disrupted our guest's visit.

This was our second time staying at this house. The location and views can't be beat, and the deck and outside area are wonderful. We were really disappointed that the pedal boat was not there, as it was the last time we stayed, and we saw it earlier this summer when staying at another house nearby. My kids were looking forward to riding on it! The house is simple, but has a nice layout and is perfect for a lake vacation. There were a lot of bugs and webs inside that could have been cleaned up better.

We enjoyed our time at the Waters Edge rental, right on the water and a very nice deck. On the negative side, the neighbor to the east is somewhat rude.
Spraying round-up on the yard, as well as mowing during our mornings on the deck had a way of ruining the peacefulness. Seems to me this could all be handled on Tuesday, the day of checkout.

We had a wonderful time in Lake Chelan & this gorgeous property!
Thank you so much for everything!!!

This was a special weekend with our family together for a long weekend and it was just wonderful in every way. The patio and view are outstanding and the location was a perfect spot to take in the "lake life"!
Chris B. Jun 2017
While the weather was less than ideal, we had a great time at Water's Edge again. Fishing off the dock, playing in the sandy beach, and enjoying our meals on the large deck were some of our highlights. Also, can't go wrong with Blueberry Hills just ten minutes away.
Shawna B. May 2017
We really enjoyed our stay here! It was clean and the patio was amazing!
Kathleen H. May 2017
This location was an easy 2 miles from Manson and 1/2 mile to one of the best wineries in Chelan.... Benson! The house was quaint, well stocked overall, and the back deck was expansive and lakefront. It was just lovely. We had a great time and hope to be back soon!
Carlo F. Apr 2017
Good location, house is clean, deck is awesome, highly recommended

So relaxing on the deck.

Great view
MARK R. Sep 2016
We were very pleased overall with this vacation rental and would recommend it as an optimal base from which to enjoy the surrounding wineries and lake activities. The home itself isn't the largest on the block and it is a bit older but everything was completely functional inside. The kitchen was very well stocked with basic quality pots, pans, pitchers, and a variety of cooking implements. The back deck features a nice grill as well.

The back deck was where we ended up the most. It was very well built with lots of seating and a very large covered area. The back lawn is a little bit sloped, but an easy climb back up. What we really enjoyed was the dock/beach area where wading was easy and we were able to learn to use a paddleboard in calm water.

We found out by talking to locals that accessing the lake by public areas is somewhat limited and a private beach access point is very valuable.

One aspect to the backyard and dock area is that it is not private in the least. All of the neighboring homes have sightlines into this area and you can have other residents enjoying the lake on the other side of the property lines or on their adjacent docks. This wasn't a negative aspect, but the pictures don't disclose that very well.

The home is extremely close to downtown Manson and a nice grocery store is just 2 minutes away. Chelan is only 10 mintues away. This centralized location was fantastic.
Alicia K. Sep 2016
Location and house were beautiful. The owners have a cozy house, well equipped for a relaxing stay on the lake. Quiet neighbors which was a plus, and we had everything we needed at house.
Claudia E. Aug 2016
We had a 1st time family summer getaway to Chelan staying at this place. We had lots of laughs and fun.
Our 4 year-old granddaughter was crying, “I DON’T WANT TO LEAVE!”. That pretty much says it all. Water, sun and family fun.
Lisa H. Aug 2016
This vacation rental has a beautiful setting! You can't beat the lake front view, large dock, and sandy beach. The deck is one of the highlights of this home; it is very large with shade and sun options. This home provides a perfect family getaway. It is comfortable and has incredible lake access.
Gregory D. Aug 2016
Enjoyed the waterfront, dock area
Caitlin H. Jul 2016
The deck and outside space of this property made it the perfect weekend destination. We spent a great deal of time enjoying the deck morning, day and night. There was also plenty of room inside for a group of 7.
Anna D. Jul 2016
Beautiful deck area!
Emily M. Jul 2016
One of the best vacations we've had in a long time. The house is simple and nothing particularly special, but very clean and perfectly usable. But the outdoor space will take your breath away. We LIVED outside on the decks, the dock, and in the water. It was the perfect location on the water, as well as right between Chelan and Manson. Can't wait to go back again!
Josh G. Jun 2016
Wish we could have stayed longer and enjoyed the lake but we spent most of the time there golfing
Rachel G. Jun 2016
Waters Edge was nothing short of stunning! Our group of girls have been friends for over 15 years and we spend a long weekend every year catching up and laughing. Waters Edge was comfortable, beautiful and perfect! We spent the entire weekend lounging in what we called the lagoon (an area blocked between the two docks), on the beach and catching up on the gorgeous deck overlooking the water.
A side note to any future renters would be that the properties on either side are very close (one shares the dock) and there is also a 9pm quiet time rule in place that does need to be followed. Even with that in mind, we're already planning our next trip out!
Chris B. Jun 2016
Great little house, awesome view and outdoor space
We had a great time and would definitely come back!

Perfect place for three long time friends to reconnect and enjoy the beauty of the end of winter.
