I had room 7. The description on the lodge web site did not do it justice. It was more like a little house than a room. It was a lovely big space with a separate bedroom and a loft bedroom. It had huge windows, great views - lake at the front, forest at the back, front and back doors - both with outside space.
The beds were new and great. The kitchen area looked new and was well stocked with pots, dishes etc. The stove looked a little older but it was fine. The only wrong note was the sofa - old and beat-up. A local told us that the sofas will be replaced soon.
I knew from reviews that the restaurant was very good. My husband had not read the reviews and very surprised at the quality of the food.
The location is unbeatable. It is on lake where we disembarked from the seaplane.
There is a rec house but we were not told about it when we checked it. The young people working registration did not seem very knowledgeable about the lodge.
Overall the lodge was very good and Stehekin was fabulous. We were sorry to leave and want to go back.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This amazing Lodge overlooks pristine Lake Chelan in the North Cascades National Park in Washington state. Here, our first priority is to assist our guests in completely disconnecting and enjoy the beauty of the nature that surrounds. There are no telephones in your guestrooms, there is no internet access, and the only way to travel here is by water ferry, seaplane or by hike. ... more less
