We spent an afternoon at Lake Chelan and it was beautiful. We walked around the town and enjoyed lunch at an outdoor patio which accommodated our dog. Lots of nice people and beautiful scenery.

I just spent a couple of days enjoying the hospitality of the Lakeview Hotel in Lake Chelan Wa and I couldn't possibly be more pleased. The hotel is beautiful, very classy and luxurious. I loved the jetted tub, fireplace, super comfy bed, all of the little amenities like bathrobes and real glasses, and also the sweet, blissful peace and quiet.... More

We knew within minutes of us arriving that this would be one of the best vacation ever. From where we stayed (Grandview on the lake) to the gleaming water, we knew that this was going to be amazing. Chelan has so much to offer. Boat, kayak, jet ski and paddle board rentals, good food, many wineries, views of the lake... More

This is a large beautiful lake, but can be controlled by the weather. When I arrived at the lake, it was cloudy. I did not get much good impression. On the second day, in the sun, the lake was clear blue and shinning. So beautiful!

Enjoyed winery hopping looking for our coveted ice wines. Only found a couple of them. The weather hasn't been cold enough for the making of the ice wines.

The water is so clear and clean and the lake has activities for everyone. Once you come here and experience all the lake has to offer you will want to come back on a regular basis. The lake is very deep and can be cold, but down by Celan it is warmer. Come for wine tasting, boating, camping, hiking, the... More
