New listing! Modern, lakefront cottage & bunk house w/ a private dock & hot tub!

Welcome to Waterfront Wonderland! This gorgeous, modern cottage and matching bunk house sits on the south shore of Lake Chelan where the incredible views and soothing sounds of the water lapping against the dock will put you and your guests immediately at ease. Whether you're visiting for sunny summer days or the area's autumn glory, Lake Chelan is always generous with its natural beauty. The main house features a well-equipped, full kitchen with stainless steel appliances and an attached breakfast bar. Enjoy meals indoors or out on the furnished deck where you'll find plenty of patio seating. The living area is warmed by a gas fireplace and is the perfect place to hang with friends and family members while you plan your days or play a few board games. This home also boasts an expansive dock with 100 feet of water frontage for swimming, paddleboarding, and fishing. And after an exciting day out, unwind and relax in the hot tub or the dry sauna out on the deck. And when it's time to turn in, this home offers four bedrooms, each with its own en suite bathroom, smart TV, and private entry.

What's nearby:
This home is less than two miles from the 235-acre Twenty-Five Mile Creek State Park, and only 18 miles from downtown Chelan. The scenic journey there offers amazing views, charming eateries, and access to several local wineries including Karma, Sorrentos, and Mellisoni. And if you're visiting with kids, Slidewaters, also in Chelan, is a must for all-ages where you can take in panoramic, sweeping views of the lake while you float on their lazy river.

This place is great for older kids or just adults. The rooms all have their own entrance which my teens loved. The kitchen was good, knives need sharpening and the pan's could be nicer but overall worked well with plenty of dishes and all the things. The sauna was very nice and so was the hot tub.

I wish there were more couches. There really isn't anywhere to sit together inside. A few more cozy places would be nice. I also wish there was a lid to the hot tub. it could not keep up with the temp and it got full of plant stuff. I wish there was a few more blankets or throws to cuddle up under as well.

Overall, a great trip.

The house, view, beds, just everything was extraordinary. Loved the private dock and hot tube.
Will rent this place again :)

Waterfront Wonderland was nothing but an absolute DREAM. I couldn't have picked a better location to reunite our high school friends and spend the weekend just relaxing and taking in the scenery. As someone who stays in rental properties often, I was beyond impressed with the cleanliness, aesthetics, amenities, and every corner of the home....and can we talk about the VIEW? Every morning we woke up to the most glorious landscape of mountains, trees, and the sparkling lake. I highly recommend taking a kayak out in the morning, having a cup of coffee on the balcony, or practicing those fishing skills on the dock! This was the perfect way to kick off Summer in the PNW and we cannot wait to come back again. Thank you Waterfront Wonderland for setting the most gorgeous backdrop and for allowing us to create such beautiful memories that will last a lifetime.

Waterfront Wonderland where great detail has been made to ensure you are comfortable and relaxed. Seating everywhere so you can enjoy the amazing beauty just steps away from any room you choose. Where you sleep in the most comfortable, soft beds and cozy up in the most amazing linen and pillows, where you can sit all day outside on any deck and never get bored, where watching TV and having internet doesn’t matter (though it’s available) because why do you need it when you have all this....the hot tub, sauna, fireplace, (no fire ban while we were here)fishing off the private dock, and beautiful grounds. Where else can you go to experience luxury and camping all in one? Where each member of your group has their own private getaway when you just need alone time and still come together anywhere on the deck and have a wonderful time. The owners of this property really thought about their vacationers, comfort and their relaxation, giving us the best indoor/outdoor experience in April. We loved being here every moment and look forward to booking our next vacation here, making this a family destination tradition for years to come. Thank you Blueberry Properties for making this a most memorable glamping vacation!

First, the positives: It's right on the water, which would make it a fun place to stay in the summer. It would be a good house for a group of adults only. The beds were very comfortable. The hot tub was nice.

Now for the list of problems: Mouse droppings everywhere in the main house, including on our sheets/pillows when we arrived. We flicked them off the bed and tucked that fact away in the back recesses of our minds, not wanting it to be true. But the presence of a scurrying mouse in the kitchen a few days later caused us to pack up and leave a day early. Moving on...I came with my kids which I don't recommend. Each room is it's own suite with an entrance from the outside, meaning that each of my kids had to sleep in their own room with a locked door to the outside and no easy way to connect with each other or us (parents). This meant we needed to keep our doors unlocked at night so they could come over to our place if needed in the middle of the night. It was freezing cold outside and scary to sleep with doors unlocked. My kids struggled and it was stressful for us parents. I had no way of knowing this would be the set up from all the descriptions, pics, and video tour of this property. Third, there is no cell coverage at all and the wifi is so bad we could never use it. I was disconnected from my small business without warning and my kids could only handle so much "connection" time with us playing games and doing puzzles for days on end. We had hoped for at least one movie during this vacation, but never watched any tv or listened to our music. It's amazing how dependent we are on wifi! Supplies were spotty, the hand soap was empty in the main bathroom and there was no dishwashing detergent, something I didn't realize until needing to run my first load of dirty dishes at 8:00 at night. This caused me to begrudgingly drive the hour round trip to Safeway to buy some.

Before my trip, I emailed with questions about what kitchen supplies were available, as I was planning to cook Thanksgiving dinner for my family. Someone from Vacasa called me and told me there were NO kitchen supplies other than plates, silverware, and glasses. He said houses especially on the West coast had been removing items due to Covid. So I ended up bringing my whole kitchen: all my small appliances, pots & pans, cutting boards, serving dishes, and a bin full of utensils. When I arrived, there was a mostly stocked kitchen, so of course I was frustrated with being told something untrue and having put so much extra effort (including my partner having to drive a second car to fit everything). I also sent a complaint email after choosing to leave a day early due to the various problems, including a mouse in the kitchen and droppings everywhere. I received a generic response saying someone would contact me to make it right. I still haven't heard from anyone. I will not rent from Vacasa again.

We came to stay the last week of September 2020 and our family had a blast! We fished off the dock, kayaked across the lake and just hung out with the tranquility of lake and the views. It is a quiet and private area. You can relax in their jacuzzi enjoying a view of the lakes and mountains. There are activities for all ages. Very nice accommodations with a fully stocked kitchen which we used to prepare all our meals. It sleeps up to twelve people very comfortable with everyone having their own privacy. The grocery store is about fifteen minutes away for any needs.

Amazing views of lake Chelan the surrounding hills. The house is big with lots of patio/dock space to move around. The hot tub and sauna are amazing and right on the lake so a nice cold plunge is just a few steps away after sweating it out. It’s about 30 minutes from Lake Chelan so it’s good to have whatever supplies you need ahead of time. The WiFi signal is not very strong, but you won’t want to spend much time connected at this beautiful spot. There weren’t a lot of extra amenities such as toilet paper and dish soap, but overall our stay was very relaxing and enjoyable.
Manager response:
Shawnee, We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in Waterfront Wonderland. We are sorry you had issues with the WiFi signal. We only furnish starters of amenities for our guests. We look forward to hosting you again. Thank you!

Beautiful home on the lake. If you’re looking to getaway and disconnect from everything this is the spot.
Lindsay B. Aug 2020
The waterfront and dock space is great with plenty of room to spread out. Boat friendly. Clean rooms and a nice kitchen. Super private. Would stay here again.
Robert B. Aug 2020
Unclean everywhere, infested w/ ants, no sign of any Covid 19 cleaning details as the website makes a big deal about extra cleaning procedures, we have arrival photos of unclean conditions in all areas of the home. Pantry and fridge were dirty. We didn't use a portion of the pantry because it looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a long time. Cookware was dirty. There were ants in every room, on every surrface.

That said, the lakefront, the house itself, the view from every window, peaceful, quiet, and private.

We allowed a rating of 3 because the house on the lake was worthy. The management of this property was poor. Communication w Vacasa was completely unacceptable, answers to questions five weeks after the emailed question...no information available until the weekend before the trip , left us begging for information and scrambling to prepare.

We will never rent through Vacasa again. We have enjoyed a decade of vacation rentals theou AirBNB and have dozens of well managed trips under our belts all over the world. Vacasa is poorly managed and was completely disappointed in that aspect of our trip.

Loved everything except the internet connection
Cayce B. Jul 2020
Waterfront Wonderland is a great place for a big group. We loved how private it was. Our kids( not really kids but still our kids) ranged from 18-22 and had a blast playing music and playing games with no complaints. The view was incredible and the layout worked really good for our two families and party of 12. We would definitely come back.
Melissa C. Jun 2020
Beautiful home located in a great spot. Close enough for a short drive to town but remote enough for privacy. Great for swimming & fishing right off the dock. Our family had a great stay.
Lamar M. Jun 2020
I absolutely loved the location and views. My group and I would strongly recommend this home for your stay at chelan. Although service is a little shifty, the last thing you are worried about is a phone when the lake and views are so breathtaking. Every room is equipped with top of the line furniture and very clean home I
Must add!
