Good Morning

Start your day off slow and easy with coffee on the porch. The morning temperatures in the summer months are just about perfect and you’ll enjoy a moment of zen as you take in the calm waters and clear skies. Once you’ve woken up a bit, head into downtown Chelan or Manson to grab brunch or make a breakfast feast for yourself in your rental’s stocked kitchen.

Spend a late morning window shopping and browsing the downtown shops. Find that perfect souvenir to take home with you or treat yourself to a new beach read. Fuel up with an iced coffee or grab a late lunch at a local eatery before heading out for some afternoon fun.

As the day really heats up, head to the lake for an afternoon of fun in the sun. Whether you’re camping out by the shore, renting a boat or jet-skis, or going for a leisurely paddle board ride, we know you’ll make the most of your water-filled afternoon. It’s the perfect way to beat the summertime heat and take full advantage of all that Lake Chelan has to offer.

Dinner Time

Once you’re sufficiently wiped out from your afternoon adventures, make your way back to your rental for a low-key dinner. Ordering takeout to bring back with you is a mess-free, low-energy way to feed the crew and keep everyone happy. Or break out the grill and a couple of cold ones and cook dinner to enjoy outside as the sun goes down. Our rentals are ready for you with BBQs and stocked propane tanks. All you need to do is bring the food! Enjoy your meal with a glass of Lake Chelan wine as you wind down and recap the day.


Whether you’re perched on the patio overlooking the lake or lounging poolside in the twilight, cap off your perfect Lake Chelan day with a good drink and good conversation. Take in the cooling temperatures and brilliant sky as it changes from blue to pink to orange.

Get Cozy

Curl up with a good movie, a riveting book, or a lively board game to finish off the day. Lake Chelan vacations are all about making the most of the quality time you have while you’re here. Our rentals make it easy for you to relax, unwind, and share some truly special moments together.
