11/12/2018 | by Sage Vacation Rentals | Vacation Rentals Vacation Tips

Lake Chelan is one of the best vacation destinations in Washington State, with its crystal blue water, rolling hills and also earning the nickname “Wine Country”, its no doubt people plan week-long vacations to relax and take in the scenery. As a vacation rental company, we understand that planning a summer trip is no easy task! So we have put together the helpful tips to help better plan your stay!

Where to Stay in the Chelan Valley?

Chelan and Southshore: Enjoy gorgeous views of the lake and mountains! Our Southshore properties are conveniently located next to award winning wineries in Chelan!

Columbia River and Entiat: If you’re looking for something away from the noise and privacy, we highly recommend these waterfront homes on the river! These are also great options if your looking for something closer to Wenatchee.

Manson and Wapato Point: Wapato Point is highly recommended by guests since you get access to Wapato Point Resort amenities! If you don’t mind the 10-minute extra drive from downtown Chelan, Manson is a beautiful location that also has its own small town with multiple wineries, shops, and restaurants!

Condos: Condos are a great option for an affordable place to stay! Many of our condos are located within a short distance to downtown Chelan and typically sleep up to 6 people! Enjoy a day at the pool or in the hot tub at either Chelan Resort Suites or Park Pointe!
