Upscale lakefront house with stunning views & dock spacious interior with fireplace

Searching for that perfect lakeside vacation spot? Live like royalty at this upscale house on the shores of Lake Chelan, boasting a private dock, sweeping lakefront views, and wonderfully spacious interior with room for the whole family.

Perched along Lakeshore Road, this home is on the quiet south side of the lake just a few miles from the town of Chelan. Launch your boat from Lakeside Park two miles away, then use this home's private dock, and buoys to keep your watercraft safe and ready to take out on the lake. Watson's Alpenhorn Cafe, a local favorite for burgers, beer, and wine, is only two miles away. Be sure to spend some time exploring the towns of Chelan and Manson, both offering a variety of shops and restaurants, or spend your afternoons tasting at the nearby Tsillan Cellars or checking out the many other wineries this region is famous for.

You'll enjoy all the home comforts, including free WiFi, a host of electronic entertainment options, and a relaxing jetted bathtub in the top floor's master suite. Younger vacationers will want to spend time in the lower level family room, which offers a foosball table, large TV, and a kitchenette perfect for keeping soda cool in the minifridge or popping a bag of popcorn in the microwave. Adults might prefer to relax in the main level's grand living room, complete with a gas fireplace and jaw-dropping views of the lake and the mountains in the distance. The full kitchen is just the ticket for whipping up hearty meals in between activities, and multiple outdoor decks provide the best vantage point of the water and beyond.

Whether you're visiting during the warm summer months, for a special winter ski vacation, or any time in between, this gorgeous Lake Chelan house is sure to be the highlight of your getaway. Reserve your stay today!

We really enjoyed the outside space, and swimming in the lake. Bring your own floaties and tubes! Cleaning was good at first glance, and then we noticed our socks were black from the dirt on the floors. Walls are splattered from spills and pretty sure two of the beds were not changed, saw hair on the sheets but I guess that’s debatable. I sent photos to manager. There was enough beds we did not have to use the dirty ones. (Four bedrooms with multiple queen beds). Kitchen had salt and pepper, and a few spices, bring your own olive oil for cooking, Safeway is about 20mins away. Overall I think this was the dirties vacation rental we have stayed at, but with the best view, we decided to leave a day early, since the dirt was really getting to everyone and no mop onsite or else I would have mopped it myself! Hope your stay is cleaner!
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Crystal. We're so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and the lake. We are sorry to hear that there were some cleanliness concerns. We wish you had let us know at the time so we could have sent someone to assist with that. Please know our housekeeping team has been notified so they can address this moving forward. We appreciate your feedback and hope to have another opportunity to host you in the future.

It's hard to not love being on the lake for Vacation, but all of the reviews here are very accurate. The house is not taken care of at all. We had to wait in the driveway for an hour after our scheduled check-in to let the cleaners finish before we could enter the home. It was almost 100 degrees out and we had kids with us. Not ideal. The house was filthy, the cleaners missed picking up a bunch of old food containers with rotten food and silverware with from the previous guests. There were dead bugs/gnats spiderwebs, dust, crumbs, etc EVERYWHERE! The bedding was stained and had hair in them, and they were very uncomfortable. One room had a mattress on the floor. Yikes! If you're looking for a crash pad on the lake, this works, but if you want a cozy place home-away-from-home, this is NOT your vacation spot.

We did have a 22.5 foot boat with us. The dock is tilted and rocky, so bring a lot of bumpers. Not well protected, but we made it work.

Overall, not an amazing experience. We reported all issues to Vacasa. They texted back and offered to come remove the dirty dishes, but otherwise no other remedy was suggested.
Manager response:
Cassie, we are sorry to have been unable to provide you with a more pleasant and accommodating stay. We strive to have excellent, guest-focused service and we apologize if we missed the mark this time. We appreciate you sharing your feedback and concerns with us in order for us to address the areas in need of attention throughout the home. We will work with our local team to ensure these items are corrected for future guests, and we hope for an opportunity to provide you with an exceptional vacation experience in the future.

The panoramic views.
Brenda A. Jun 2022
The home and view are beautiful but, the home was not properly cleaned. There was feces smeared on the main level bathroom. The toilets and some pillow cases were dirty. The jet tub was also dirty and ended up scrubbing and cleaning that myself so that kinda could enjoy. Unfortunately those issues made the stay somewhat uncomfortable. I sent an email with some pictures and never heard back.
Manager response:
Brenda, thank you for providing your feedback, we're glad you thought our home was beautiful and that you enjoyed the view. That being said, we sincerely apologize for the cleanliness issues you experienced and any disconnect in care you felt when communicating with our team. We are disappointed to hear that we dropped the ball this time, as this is not the high standard of guest satisfaction and cleanliness that we hold ourselves to. We have provided your valuable feedback to our local manager to address with our housekeeping team. We hope to have the opportunity to better impress you in the future.

At first sight we were impressed. House looked amazing, the view was breathtaking, everything seemed to be clean.
When we start settling notices some problems with the cleanliness of the house, some technical issues and a broken table legs. All this was followed with phone calls and trying to get help not only on the first day of arrival but second day too. Our stay as a result was good not amazing as we expected.
I have to give a big shout out to Sam Martin and general manager of Vacasa Sean, who assisted us in any way possible to them feel good and appreciated. They assured us that will do additional training to the staff so those problems won’t happen again.
We will definitely be using Vacasa for our family getaway again.

Nice home, good location away from downtown. Parking is a little tight, compact cars recommended.
Norma C. Dec 2021
Beautiful home! Beautiful view of lake & snowy mountains. Very spacious. Rented for myself, my sisters & their families. Kids liked the bottom floor/game room but could only play for a bit as it was really cold down there. We wanted to watch Christmas movies together but only 1 communal tv on 1st floor, again too cold, & not enough space for everyone to get comfortable.
Thinking maybe try for a summer stay. Kids may have more fun being able to go outside in warmer weather & playing in the lake.
Karla M. Sep 2021
There were cob webs everywhere on the outside of the house. The windows were so dirty some you couldn’t see threw. We had to take a broom to the outside so spiders didn’t drop on us. Very expensive for it not being clean. Also we rented for 2 weeks and I had to buy my own dish soap. That seemed odd
Manager response:
Hello Karla. We apologize if you felt the home was not on par with our cleanliness standards. We would have been happy to address any areas in need of additional attention during your stay had we been notified. To clarify, we provide our guests with a starter kit of supplies. This includes cleaning supplies, toiletries, and paper products. Once these supplies run out it is the responsibility of our guests to provide any additional supplies throughout the remainder of their stay. Supplies are restocked before each guest. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused during your time with us. We look forward to hosting you again!

The house at this location is very nice--roomy, well appointed, and very comfortable. We have no complaints about the house.
However, this is not a Boater's Paradise as advertised. The dock facilities are not at all adequate even for temporary mooring during the day. Boat wake and wind waves constantly batter the boat. Unlike the other 20+ houses in this stretch (and most of the rest of the lake outside of marinas) there is no shore station. No amount of bumpers can protect the boat. One night the storm waves became so violent we were awakened at 1 am and found the relatively new 5/8" bow and stern lines had snapped and the boat was pivoting wildly on a midship line. It took three of us nearly an hour to get some semblance of safety with the boat. There is a mooring buoy in front of the house, but it is also not adequate to the task. In stiff winds, the boat pivoted into the dock and the adjacent buoys. Whoever wrote the "Boater's Paradise" headline knew nothing about boats or Lake Chelan or both. Our boat sustained significant cosmetic damage but luckily no structural damage. If you are looking for a boating vacation, look elsewhere.
Anthony V. Jun 2021
Everything we needed and more. Not a single issue.
John T. Jun 2021
Right on the water with amazing views up and down the lake - great shared dock for your boat. Very smooth checkin and communication process with vacasa...
Monika . Mar 2021
The house is very big with fantastic views , a hot tub in the master suite and a well equipped kitchen. The house overall is very clean and in a good location to enjoy winter sports in nearby Chelan, such as Echo Ridge. We didn't have gas to cook during our stay due to an outage, but the property manager was very helpful and provided us with an electric stove. We had a great time!
Calvin C. Dec 2020
Awesome view and very spacious! This is a great property that the whole family can really enjoy regardless of the season. The way it is structured made me feel like I am sitting on top of the water. You wake up to beautiful sun rising.

We booked this place last minute to spend a few nights after cancelling our trip to Cabo. The view was actually as good as what I would get from Cabo. In fact in some ways it was better as the property was so close to the water.

I believe this property can be much better presented with some minor improvements but could be a deal breaker for some.

Cleanness was below par. The corners of window sill collected a pile of dusts, dead bugs and or spiderwebs
Carpet was acceptable but wasn't throughly vacuumed as you could find crumbs and hairs.

Bed sheets were damp and had some unpleasant odor.

Thermostat was set to 65 in a locked box that I wasn’t allowed to change. The downstairs guests had to bundle up and sleep in 50s. The thermostat is located in the kitchen and naturally is 10degree higher than the downstairs when you cook.
No local service rep available. I had to either call the central office or email which would be then relayed to a local rep. I just didn’t think they were as responsive as other rental service that I am used to.
As I said, the property itself is wonderful. It has so much potential to be a very desirable vacation place if small details are addressed.

Manager response:
Hi, Calvin! We appreciate receiving such helpful feedback from you. We apologize for the cleanliness issues you encountered and will follow-up with our housekeeping team. The thermostat is locked to prevent any extreme temperatures from being set, but we are happy to assist our guests with reasonable requests for temperature changes. Thank you!
Brady M. Jun 2020
Amazing views and all around great house! The grill and accompanying deck are amazing
Petr C. Jun 2020
The kitchen was fully equipped and the view was amazing
Michael B. May 2020
The house is amazing, the setup is nice, very spacious and gorgeous views.

The communication was horrible and didn’t exist. The WiFi never worked,

Aside from communication I would recommend booking the place just highly suggest the management team be a little more accessible for questions that may arise.

Thank you for the stay
Manager response:
Michael, thank you for your review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the home. The WiFi issues have been fixed by our maintenance staff. We sincerely apologize for any issues you encountered when attempting to get in contact with us. Our 24/7 guest services line is currently experiencing an inordinate number of calls and messages due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Thus, leading to longer wait times on the phone and delayed responses via email and text. Our team is working hard to assist all of our guests as efficiently as possible. We hope to have the opportunity to impress you in the future!
Barbara C. Jan 2020
The view was wonderful! The house is well equipped with everything we needed. Fantastic layout with a bathroom on each floor. We will be back for sure
Charlene K. Dec 2019
It was a beautiful setting and lots of room for the whole family of 10 to enjoy and have ample space. Kids loved the foosball but disappointed they couldn't play ping pong as no lighting worked in the garage or the fireplace in the living room wouldn't stay lite. Had a sweet lady "Shericee" stopped by that same night we emailed the property co. and attempted to fix the problems but unable. She was such a kind and caring person and felt so bad! Loved the quick response to our emails and the quiet, serene atmosphere! Thank YOU.
Samuel W. Jul 2019
Just stayed in this house with my family, my brother, and my brother's family. We loved it! Super clean and laid out really well for a big group - open living spaces, big bedrooms, lots of beds and great decks. The views of the lake are spectacular and the waterfront and dock are so convenient.

We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone looking for a great lake vacation.
Lisa Z. Jun 2019
Cleanest rental house we have every stayed in! Tons of room, and gorgeous lakeview! Spent the day on the dock and then wine tasting and had a wonderful weekend overall!

Location is great
House is fabulous
Very clean
Jody T. Aug 2018
I really loved that this house was very modern, had 3 floors which was perfect for my large family with kids. Kids were able to take naps without interruptions, beautiful décor, right on the lake, kitchen was fairly well equipped with everything we needed.
Steve M. Jul 2018
Nice big house with a great dock. Had everything we needed and then some... wake board, paddle boards, ping pong, foosball, portable fire pit, BBQ, etc.. Dock is great for a boat, jet skis, whatever.

There is 8 beds across 5 rooms. Great setup for multi-family. There is even sort of a kitchenette in master and in basement.

Lots of stairs could be an issue for people with mobility issues. No real yard, but you are right on the water with 3 levels of decks. Garage can easily hold two cars, but it's a tight turn to get into it. You could get 2 or 3 cars out front, but I think they want to keep this 1 out front.
Leon A. Jun 2018
House was very accommodating for the three couples. Plenty of room with fantastic view of the lake. Lots of room to enjoy our time together. Would and will probably stay again.
Tatiana M. Jan 2018
We spent a beautiful vacation in this nice house. It has a gorgeous view and plenty of space. We would definitely like to stay there again!
