Wander the fertile fruit valley along Washington's Columbia River while staying in one of our Orondo vacation rentals! This quickly growing region has become a desirable vacation destination with its access to watersports, outdoor recreation, and gorgeous central desert wilderness.
Each year, visitors to Orondo, WA roam the fruit stands along U.S. Highway 2, play rounds of sun-soaked golf, and navigate the mighty river!
Our Orondo vacation rentals are located in north central Washington, just 26 miles from beautiful Lake Chelan. This small, unincorporated community in Douglas County sits on the eastern banks of the great Columbia River, and is surrounded by desert beauty, including the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest to the east.
Orondo is an up-and-coming destination for Washington vacation rentals due to its access to many kinds of outdoor adventure! Play a round of golf at the newly opened Desert Canyon Golf Resort or launch your boat at Orondo River Park or Daroga State Park for days spent fishing and riding the waves.
Hike Douglas Creek Canyon along the flank of Badger Mountain (look out for rattlesnakes!) or cross the river for days spent backpacking and mountain biking near Peters Point and Moody Canyon in the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest.
Thanks to the town's location on the eastern edge of the Cascades, our Orondo vacation rentals are surrounded by geographically diverse cities. Wander just over 25 miles north and you'll discover an epic lake and scenic ferry rides in Chelan. Head just over 30 miles west for an entirely different experience: the Bavarian village of Leavenworth is just over 30 miles away, making a unique day trip from the sunny high desert into the lush mountains. Not quite 20 miles south, the larger town of Wenatchee is convenient for stocking up on groceries or perusing local produce and artisan goods at the Pybus Public Market. Just 12 miles south of Wenatchee, spend the day skiing or snowboarding over the 2,000 acres at the Mission Ridge resort.
No matter where you explore, a stay in one of our Orondo vacation rentals will tickle your senses and rekindle that spark for adventure!
