Washington's North Central Cascades are so rich with beauty that it can be difficult deciding where you want to go. When in doubt, it never hurts to spend some time near the gleaming waters of Lake Chelan—and there's no better place for admiring the lake than from a fantastic home in Lake Chelan Shores.
Where is Lake Chelan Shores?
Lake Chelan Shores is easily accessible from Highway 97 by continuing through the charming town of Chelan. The largest natural lake in the entire state of Washington, Lake Chelan's 50 miles of fresh water stretch from the looming Cascades to the rushing Columbia River, and our vacation rentals put you in a great location to experience it all!
Our Lake Chelan Shores rentals
A year-round resort on the north shore of the lake, Lake Chelan Shores gives you incredible access to the lake, with 900 feet of lakefront property, a private boat ramp and dock, and boat and jet ski rentals. But the resort is much more than the lake: it's a great place to take it easy, whether you're a stressed businessperson looking for a soothing retreat or a family in search of some outdoor fun.
Relax in the comfortable accommodations of the resort's stucco homes and enjoy a wide range of amenities, such as a clubhouse with a meeting and event room, great for business and recreation alike. Six tennis courts, a basketball court, a fitness center, and five swimming pools help you to stay active.
