Lakefront house with private hot tub, gorgeous interior and shared dock!

Lakefront and with access to a shared dock with a boat lift, this is the perfect place for water-lovers to get away for a vacation. Lovely and bright, this Chelan home will be a favorite for the whole family.

Sitting directly on the lovely lakefront, this home is six miles to the west of downtown Chelan. For outdoor fun, visit Lake Chelan State Park, three miles west. The popular Lady of the Lake ferry is five miles east.

The dock outside the house is shared with the neighbors, with the right side (looking at the water) being for your use. Spend sunny afternoons jumping into the aquamarine waters, or head out in a boat to fish.

With stunning views of the lake from the large windows and a light color scheme, it's as beautiful inside as out. Rent a Blu-ray or DVD to watch together by the warmth of the wood fire. If you're feeling more like a group activity, put on a CD and have a board game tournament. There's WiFi provided, though you could also unplug and enjoy some uninterrupted quality time with your group. There is a seven-person private hot tub as well!

There's plenty of space to work in the well-stocked kitchen. A coffeemaker ensures that you're always appropriately caffeinated. Try a new recipe or an old favorite, using the blender and mixer to cut down on prep time. Outside, there's a gas grill in case you want to grill fish caught in the lake. When you've prepared your meal, slide the dishes into the dishwasher and enjoy the food inside at the table or outside on the deck, with views of the gorgeous lake.

With three bedrooms, there's room for up to 10 guests (no more than six adults, please). The master bedroom, located on the main level, has a luxurious king bed and an en suite bathroom. Downstairs, two more bedrooms have a queen in one room and a set of twin bunk beds and a twin-over-full bunk bed, as well as a trundle. Enjoy the light walls with pops of color coming from the bedspreads and pillows. There's also a sofabed for additional sleeping space.

It's easy to rinse off after a dip in the lake with two-and-a-half bathrooms. You won't have to worry about running out of clean clothes; there are a private washer and dryer available for your convenience.

There's plenty to do outdoors in Chelan. Rent a jet ski, swim in the lake, or take a ferry trip to Stehekin. Visit the Evening Farmer's Market to purchase delicious local produce to prepare and find souvenirs, then attend a film at the historic Ruby Theatre.

Chelan is famous for its wine tasting, with six wineries within a mile and a half of the home. Go to a wine tasting at the Vin du Lac winery and enjoy the view from the patio, or try the Mediterranean-inspired Benson Vineyards Winery.

You'll love being right on the water at this stunning Chelan house! A damage waiver, covering up to $2,000 of accidental damage to the property or its contents, is included in the cost of your reservation.

You must be 25 years or older to rent this property.

Great location to wineries and the views were amazing. We went in the winter and enjoyed Echo Ridge. Definitely will book again.

What a treat to enjoy waterfront during the winter months. The owners remodeled the downstairs patio and it looks like they are painting the exterior as well. Smart TVs in every room with an nice work from home office set up. Views for Days! I would rent this whole house out for a month in the if I could!
Aditi K. Oct 2020
The house has wonderful views, very clean and looks exactly as shown in the pictures. The host is very thoughtful with instructions, anticipating everything we might have needed help with and the kitchen had lots of pots, pans and utensils. Overall we had a great stay and would love to come back again in the summer.

The house is beautiful and comfortable. The views are amazing and having a dock made our vacation so much fun and easy.

Spacious and comfortable, great spot on the lake.

We came down as a group of six doing a girls weekend. The house was nice and in a convenient location to wineries. The garage held two cars which was nice because otherwise any additional cars would have to be parked on the street which was quite a walk from the house. FYI, if you’re going to have more than two cars there, just know that it is inconvenient to park there since the walk to the road is long And steep. When we arrived at the house it appeared to be clean but when we opened the fridge there were five large pizza boxes still in the fridge. The freezer also had lots of dead fruit flies in it. The freezer also had lots of dead fruit flies in it. We also noticed that there was no propane for the barbecue. There was also no propane for the fireplace outside which didn’t really matter because it didn’t work anyway. I had flagged down a neighbor and he tried to fix it but couldn’t. I did call the management company and they brought propane the next day , but it was too late because we had planned to barbecued the first night there. Another downer was that the house had a ton of fruit flies inside. They had big zappers inside the home when we arrived and dead flies everywhere. I think this is a problem with all the homes there as I’ve seen other reviews that said the homes were overrun by fruit flies. There were no screens on windows so we could not open windows while there. Last disappointing thing was that the hot tub was dirty when we arrived. Looked like sand or dirt that had accumulated at the bottom of the tub.
Overall, the house was perfect size for our group of six and it was nice that it had a washer and dryer , although it had barely any laundry detergent which was surprising since the checkout orders were to start laundry before we leave. I think this could be a really nice place with better management.
Manager response:
Hi, Ryder! Thank you for letting us know about your experience at The Silva House. We are so glad you stayed with us and apologize some things were amiss. We were happy to bring propane to right away and thought you asked us to wait until the next day so we wouldn't interrupt your evening; we apologize if we misunderstood your request. The property manager is addressing your other concerns right away. We hope to see you again!

Great location and beautiful house! Plenty of interior and exterior areas to enjoy and entertain
David K. Aug 2020
Loved everything about the Silva house-super special place to enjoy some time off by the lake. We will book again!

The house itself is well situated, the dock and patio very nice. AC works well, the layout of the house works well. House was generally clean when we arrived. We had a great time at the house and would rent it again, if they do a little more TLC. The maintenance on the house is way overdue. The furniture and finishes are ok, but doors/windows don't work well, appliances have issues, spa controls is broken (and lots of accessories on the spa are broken too), etc... Here's a repair list I sent to Vacasa...
- Microwave didn't work
- There was no propane for the grill
- Spa had not been serviced before we arrived and was grossed
The three issues above were addressed promptly by Vacasa

- All doors have problems with the latches - they all need adjustments, some need oiling and/or replacement
- large tears in patio cushions
- Patio chairs broken
- SPA control is broken. BTW, it is a Balboa Generic unit that cost only about $150 to replace and then the spa would work properly
- Some outlets are loose and/or have broken or missing plates (see by the fireplace or master bedroom bedside)
- Cleats on the docks, even if they are not supposed to be used much, have loose or missing screws, and are not properly installed so they are not secured.
- Some windows - like the living room, have broken mechanism so they can't close
- The fridge is near end of life (or need maintenance) and works almost constantly to keep temperature. This cause extra condensation and is causing significant of water to drip inside the fridge a few times a day. We had to put a cup underneath.
Manager response:
Hi, Benoit! We appreciate you staying with us and sharing your review, and we especially appreciate you providing us with an opportunity to address some of your concerns during your stay to enhance your experience. The door latches have been repaired, outlets fixed, and cleats on the deck have been removed. We were unable to locate any ripped furnishings or any issues with the windows or fridge. Again, we appreciate you sharing your review and hope to see you again!

My family and I loved this house. We desperately needed a getaway from all of the Covid chaos. We had quite a few kids with us as we let each of our kids bring a friend. There was plenty of room and a lot of what we needed was provided. Most of all the view was great and we loved having the lake right there to enjoy. My husband was able to successfully work from there as well.

I did not appreciate the miscommunication between VRBO, Vacasa, and the rules plastered all over the house. The occupancy was different, the parking situation, what to do and not do, etc. It caused confusion. The hot tub did not work even though we're charged a fee for it. There was some minor maintenance that looked like needed to be done (lights out, towel racks hanging on by a thread, etc). The neighbor, who was perfectly nice, has a two year old and always seemed to be around to nicely point out to be quieter and such.

We are very aware that we're paying money to stay in some one else's house. We are very respectful of the house and the rules. Mostly your paying for the lake use and the view. I thought it was worth it. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We didn't mind the rules or the neighbor, as we did fine obeying them. I like to be prepared on expectations and felt there was a lot of confusion on this aspect. We certainly would stay here again. Every home has its quirks and this is a well loved home.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Jamie. We are glad you enjoyed this home and we appreciate you bringing these issues to our attention. We will work with our local team to ensure these items are corrected for future guests, and we hope to host you again in the near future!

We had a wonderful vacation at the Silva house. It was a great location and was enough room for all 9 of us. The dock was the best feature with a built in umbrella. We had an amazing time playing in the water and renting jet skis. It was a much needed family vacation!
Hannah B. Jun 2020
The hot tub was cold and never warmed up. There was blood stains in one of the beds along with popcorn and crumbs of other things in other beds. There was only 1 roll of toilet paper in each bathroom we ran out half way threw out stay. Not enough towels as the amnount of guest able to stay in the house. The add says 4 parking spots but there is actually only two. There was a few other things as well.

But the view is awesome.
Manager response:
We appreciate you sharing your review with us, Hannah. We are sorry to read housekeeping did not properly clean and stock the home prior to your arrival and wish you had reached out so we could have sent them back out to correct the issues. We hope to have a chance to impress you in the future. Thank you!

My wife and I stayed here to celebrate our 12th wedding anniversary. Lake Chelan has always been a special place for us throughout our marriage, so to find this home right on the water at such an affordable price due to it being the off season was perfect. We needed a calming view to relax with while enjoying watching football games, catching up on Netflix shows and doing a little homework, and the Silva House had everything we needed to make it the perfect late fall getaway. The view from the hot tub was absolutely spectacular and the heat from the water mixed with the cold night air was perfect! 12 out of 10, highly recommend this house!!!
Anne B. Oct 2016
This home is gorgeous. The open-space layout with the incredible view is perfect for a family or a romantic stay for two. The location is near many wineries. I look forward to staying here again and highly recommend it.
Chris K. Oct 2016
No cable TV, several broken items at house. Garage door opener (both exterior code panel & interior switch), shower head sprays/leaks badly, towel rack broken, lock on back door from kitchen to deck is broken.
Manager response:
The Property Manager has tightened the shower head, fixed the towel rack, and repaired the lock. The garage door is scheduled for repair, and the owners are addressing the cable issue. Thank you!
Duff J. Oct 2016
The house has a wonderful setting directly on the water. Needs a few updates but looks they are starting. The big disappointment was that there was no tv service as stated. Also only other negative for us was the fact that the only way to house by a flight of stairs. We had elderly folks and it made it tough. All in all the view saved the negatives.
Manager response:
We apologize for the confusion with the TV service; cable was advertised when this guest booked, but it is no longer an amenity provided at this home. We have refunded the guest for the disappointment and inconvenience.
Michael V. Sep 2016
Upon checking in, we were stunned by the view. It was a million dollar View. The property needs attention on cleaning because there were a lot of spider webs throughout the property. Inside the garage, exterior of the house, and the Outdoor Furnitures. Some doors need maintenance. One door was jammed and another door keeps coming off.
Manager response:
The home has been pressure washed, and the doors have been repaired.
Sofea A. Sep 2016
Over all loved the house! The patio was my favorite! Perfect size for 10 people!

The home is perfectly located in Chelan! Very close to wineries, town, and best of all right on the water! The views are amazing and our kids enjoyed hours of time in the water.
The home was ok. If you have children, there is wireless and a DVD player, but I'd recommend bringing movies, because there is no cable. I think some general maintenance of the property would do wonders for ease and comfort of the stay, but the location far out weighs those issues.
Annalise J. Jul 2016
This was the perfect getaway for our ladies weekend. The location is beautiful and we spent most of our time relaxing on the two decks. I would come back again!
Julie A. Jul 2016
Beautify setting right on the lake - you can't beat it!
Scott R. Jun 2016
We had eight guys stay four night for a golf trip. Sleeping room for all eight when you include the pull outs. The consensus was that we would definitely stay there again. Thanks Vacasa!
Wayne K. May 2016
House is definitely spacious with large open concept. Dock is well maintained and downstairs outdoor seating is very comfortable. It was nice to be able to park two cars inside garage.
