Amazing Lakefront Home with 140 feet of Waterfront, 800 Sq. Ft. Deck - Near Town
Up to six guests will love a lakeside stay at Helios Hills, a three-bedroom retreat on the waters of Lake Chelan. With an 800-square-foot deck, 140 feet of waterfront that includes a dock and a boat buoy, and a great location just minutes from wineries, golf courses, casinos, restaurants, and more, and it will set the stage for an incredible trip to one of Washington's premier vacation destinations!
Nestled in a private cove at the base of apple orchards, the home's location is great for both sightseeing in town and exploring the lake's north shores. Head three-and-a-half miles south for family-friendly dining in Manson or drive 12 miles south to Chelan, or go a half-mile farther from downtown for all-ages fun at Slidewaters Waterpark.
Wide picture windows with impressive lakefront views beautifully compliment cabin decor and plush furnishings in the classic A-frame design of this home. With three window air conditioning units in this home, you can cool off between all your water-themed adventures in the spacious living area, where you'll find comfortable couches for taking a nap or lounging with your group on movie night (the room's TV features a DVD player). This home also offers free WiFi to help you keep in touch with friends and family back home.
With the home's western exposure, you're guaranteed plenty of sunshine, so head outside to soak up the sun-drenched views. Your options include a downstairs dock that extends out into the lake and an upstairs deck and patio with lounge chairs and a glass-top table that makes a great place for an al fresco meal.
Speaking of dining, you'll find everything you need to whip up homemade meals in the open-concept kitchen, which features modern appliances, assorted cookware, and ample countertops. When it's best to dine indoors, there's even seating at a six-seat table nearby. And don't worry about lengthy cleanups - a dishwasher takes care of it all.
Afterward, continue the group activities with a game of cornhole outside, or pull out some board games and puzzles for a fun-filled evening indoors. You could also bait a fishing line and cast right off the dock, then toss your fresh catch on the deck's gas grill for a tasty barbecue.
When it's time to call it a day, retreat to any of the three bedrooms on two floors. Up to six guests are accommodated in all. The main floor's master suite features its own full bathroom and the second bathroom is split between the upstairs two bedrooms.
Wake with a fresh cup of coffee in the kitchen, then get ready for a new day of adventures. Head south for a walk along the waterfront followed by a picnic at Chelan Riverwalk Park, or lace up some sturdy boots for a hike in the hills overlooking Chelan. On the way back home, grab a meal at the locally owned Northshore Cafe, or pull up a seat at any of the sports bars in Manson.
You could also rent boats, jet skis, inner tubes, and more at Shoreline Watercraft and Boat Rental, or spend the day sampling acclaimed vintages at over 30 wineries in the area.

The house was very clean and accommodating. Fresh linens, comfortable beds and well stocked kitchen. The view from the deck is beautiful, relaxing and serene. Plenty of seating on the deck for many people.
There were a few drawbacks; washer and dryer are in a padlocked closet, no access. There is a beautiful fireplace as pictured in the listing, but you're not allowed to use it. Nice dock that you're not allowed to tie a boat to. Also, the coffee maker really needs to be replaced. It's old, cheap, and it overflowed on us twice.
Even given the things, we had a wonderful time and were very comfortable.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the lake. The house has plenty of beds, a great view, and a beautiful deck and dock area!

This wonderful lakeside rental was exactly what we needed for a week outside the city to enjoy the Chelan area. This home is situated in a very nice, safe neighborhood with friendly people. The view is expansive and gorgeous on the upper deck and the water is easily accessible on the brand new lower dock area with stairs into the lake. The house itself is very clean and spacious. There are many comfortable beds with nice linens and there is a well-stocked kitchen perfect for cooking big family meals. I loved cooking on the beautiful grill on the deck next to our dining area while sipping local wine from the many tasting rooms in the area while enjoying the view. The agent was immediately available for our few questions. We highly recommend this rental for anyone that would like the best of Lake Chelan. We hope to return again.

The deck and private dock were awesome beautiful view The only downfall was that it did not have a heat pump only AC in bedrooms which was fine
Briana G.Jun 2021
This was our third time renting this house in 4 years. We’ve loved it every time - it’s not perfect but the benefits outweigh any negatives. We were happy to see there is now air conditioning units in the bedrooms and WiFi. It’s clean and well stocked. It would be nice if they left the washer/dryer unlocked (so many dirty towels with so many jumps into the lake!) The main reason I’m not giving 5 stars is it previously was dog friendly and they changed the listed and we missed having our pup with us (I assume someone brought a dog and didn’t clean up after it and ruined it for us all).

Couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
Travis B.Jun 2020
Very beautiful cabin on the lake with fantastic views. The deck is huge and the dock was a great place to jump into the lake. Only complaints were that the propane was running really low when we tried to fire up the grill on the first night, there was no dishwasher soap that we could find, and we could have used more towels. We also had a run in with a skunk the first night, but the neighbors said they had not seen one down there before so we were just unlucky. We would stay here again for sure!
Thank you for your review, Travis. We are glad you enjoyed this cabin and apologize for the issues you experienced during your stay. We will work with our local team to ensure these items are corrected for future guests. We hope to host you again in the near future!

The yard in this place was absolutely perfect for dogs, fully fenced in, with plenty to sniff and the dogs loved it. The property is beautiful is stocked with everything you could want for a relaxing weekend (games, puzzles, books, DVDs and lots of equipment in the kitchen). Only feedback is that it would be great if they updated the furniture (serious 80's vibes) and the mattresses weren't very comfy. Other than that, it was perfect!
Thank you for sharing your feedback, Melissa. We are glad you enjoyed your stay! We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement, and we'll pass your suggestions to the owner for consideration. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

We would recommend to a friend. It's cozy, but fun.

Great To be right on the water, and a wonderful view of the hills.
Rhonda M.Sep 2018
If you have a dog, you cannot ask for a better spot to vacation. The lot is large enough to play fetch and completely fenced in (with lake on one side).
The house does not smell of dog and is very clean. The upstairs is all beds with 2 rooms that can be closed-door with an additional bed in the open loft. Another bedroom downstairs.
Oil and spices were available (contrary to other reviews).
The view, amazing. Grab a book and your morning joe and sit in the large deck to watch the boats or enjoy the silence.
Audrey P.Jul 2018
This was the perfect house and location for our group. The house was comfortable, clean, and well stocked. No A/C, but we spent almost all of our the time outside anyway. The house and area of the lake was pretty quiet - the neighbors were all gone during the weekdays. We spent most of our time swimming and jumping off the dock. Would definitely book this house again!
Marianne B.Jun 2018
Wonderful stay, all the ammentities, great location, amazing dock and view!
Chloe S.Oct 2017
Loved the view from this cabin, and it sleeps quite a few people (10) which is great AND allows dogs... however, the furniture was deteriorating and super stained and it looks like the owners do not care to maintain. There is no wifi which is okay if you have reception but most of us did not so if there was an emergency we would have been out of luck.
Also- the upstairs bathroom would only really work for short people/kids b/c it is wedged in the roof so you hit your head if you are not careful and there is only one shower which is kind of rough when you have a large group (sleeps 10).
Very hard to to get here, super remote and you have to go down a lot of switchbacks to get here! Again, beautiful views which were amazing but it was a very steep and if was snowing you might be stuck.
Really no storage for food, and just everything was extremely old. This was good for a quick girls trip but I would never stay here for a family vacation or a longer stay then a weekend.
The owner is having the sofa cushions recovered. The A frame style of the home does make the upper floor ceiling have some low angles. That is apparent in the photos. This home will not be open in the winter months because of the road and snow concerns. The kitchen is a good size and has all the amenities needed. The property manager will speak with the owner about finding a way to provide some more food storage space. This home is geared for people that want to be out on the lake enjoying the outdoors. In our eyes, the remote location, water access, and beautiful views are worth giving up a few little luxuries. Thank you!

House was a little difficult to find, and a little tight for a pickup on the switchbacks. My family stayed in the fall. Because of that, a lot of the lake attractions were unavailable to us, but no matter. The deck and view were second to none. Absolutely beautiful! The furnishings in the house were a bit dated but very comfortable. The kitchen was fully stocked, and the wife had everything she needed there. House was equipped with lots of board games we played as a family. Finding a vacation house that allows pets is difficult, but this was an amazing place for my dog. Lab Heaven! He was in the water about 90% of our stay.
Neighbors were friendly, and it felt like a very safe spot. I’ll be staying here again in the future, and I would absolutely recommend this rental to anyone.
Ronald D.Sep 2017
Great location on the lake with a dock to moor your boat overnight. Main deck is spacious and perfect for sitting in the sun and entertaining. there is a newer grill for cooking and the kitchen is stocked with everything you need. Plenty of outdoor space for Fido and the kids to run around. Furniture needs to be updated and finishings are older but the price reflects this.
Lori M.Sep 2017
Located on a calm part of the lake. Great private dock & shared launch ramp (not recommended for large watercraft. Tight turn & angle for a full sized trailer). Nice place to stay for a few days or longer. Vacasa was easy to deal with and great with communication.
Amanda M.Aug 2017
Overall this property was beautiful! Getting to the location was a little confusing, and it's about 20 minute drive to Chelan. There is a deck and dock right on the water which was perfect. Served the purpose for my group, and I would stay again! Some areas of the home are a little cramped- but if you aren't looking to cook a bunch and just be on the water- it's perfect!
CHERIE S.Aug 2017
The road getting down to the rental was super narrow, but then again we had 2 Tundras driving through. Easily do-able with sedans. Right as you pull onto the property, you see the deck and the DECK WAS AMAZING!! The view from the deck is stunning! Our party caught well over 20 fishes right off the upper deck. Dinner on the deck, breakfast on the deck, lunch on the deck. Basically we were out there a lot! Swimming area below is a bit rough, lots of rocks...SHARP rocks. Our little ones were in there for 10mins max before the waves started getting rough. Lots of boats and jet skis coming through. Toilets were SUPER slow to flush. Both bathrooms had more than enough towels to accommodate our party of 10. Kitchen provided everything we needed and more!
Although, the place had no A/C, it is well equipped with LOTS and LOTS of fans in each room. The breeze coming through the back deck doors helped a lot too in 90 degree weather. Couches in the living room were outdated and already falling apart, but SOOOO COMFY! Needs movies that are more kid friendly, all of them were more for adults and "boring" as stated by my 4 year old lol.
Parking area is HUGE, lots of space for parking. There were keys to a private boat launch, but we couldn't figure out where it was. Vascas's property manager was awesome to work with and very prompt if we had questions.
Overall, it was a great property for us and will definitely be back soon!
Heidi B.Jul 2017
We loved our stay in this cozy family home!
Julie C.Jul 2017
The place gets a little getting used to. If your tall you do a lot of ducking. Toilets take awhile to flush. Style is 70's... we think. But overall none of it mattered because we were on the water and with friends, so we had a blast!
