The town of Chelan is located on the southeastern tip of Lake Chelan, where the lake meets the Chelan River in the vineyard-dotted Lake Chelan Valley. Named after the Salish Indian word "Tsi - Laan," meaning "Deep Water," Lake Chelan is the largest natural lake in the state of Washington and the third-largest in the United States. Each year, vacationers gather at locations on Lake Chelan and nearby Lake Entiat for weekends spent water skiing, paragliding, wine tasting, mountain biking, and more.
Our Chelan rentals are a fabulous destination in the North Central Cascades because of its abundant outdoor beauty and recreation. Drop your fishing line into the lake, rent a jet ski for the day, or head out for a mountain bike ride along Story Mountain and the Devil's Backbone.
If it takes a little more than waves and muddy tires to get the blood pumping through your veins, you'll find plenty of adventure sports including hang gliding, paragliding, parasailing, and skydiving!
Fun for the whole family is always right around the corner when you have a cozy vacation rental waiting for you upon your return! See the region from a whole new vantage point with a helicopter or seaplane tour. Closer to the ground, spend the occasional rainy day bowling at Chelan Lanes, and if you get tired of the great outdoors (unlikely in this beautiful destination!), you can always tube, float the lazy river, and rush down corkscrew water slides at Slide Waters.
In 2009, Lake Chelan was established as the state's 11th AVA (American Viticultural Area), with more than 20 wineries and hundreds of acres of vineyards. Home to unique, glacially carved soil, the region is most famous for pinot noir and riesling, as well as syrah and Gewurztraminer. Wineries dot the countryside between Chelan and its neighboring town of Manson, and visitors could spend a whole week exploring the area's offerings. If wine tasting isn't really your thing, this area also is home to a large selection of farm-fresh hard cider.
From wine tasting to inner tubing, there’s adventure and fun for every age in the Lake Chelan Valley. You can truly choose your own adventure in a Chelan vacation rental - book now, so you can start planning the fun.
