Quote: A super place to visit in the "off-season" and fun in the summer when everything is hopping with activities.

Best Things Nearby:The Lake, Stehekin (town only accessible by the ferry)Best Things About the Resort:Clean, spacious units, well-maintained.

Stehekin

Attraction

Stehekin is a small town at the top of Lake Chelan that you can only reach by hopping on the ferry for an hour's cruise up the lake. It is a quaint, small town that allows you to walk the streets, partake of the few restaurants and eateries, shop the shops, or take a hike in the forest that surrounds it. In the winter, the town virtually shuts down, the ferry only traveling the distance a few times a week, vs. the summer schedule of two or three times a day. The cruise up North America's deepest freshwater lake offers beautiful views of the mountains, valleys surrounding the lake, and is very peaceful and relaxing, even in the summer months.

We have traveled to Lake Chelan several times, and each time leave a bit undone to draw us back again. We have used our timeshare swapping capability, tent camped, and used a hotel (by far the least desirable, although the hotel was nice). Each season has different attractions: Winter has cross-country skiing, hiking and fishing. Spring has more hiking, fishing and watching the young wildlife. Summer has boating, swimming, kayaking, waterskiing, jet skis, and all the other water sports (and hiking, fishing, etc.), and the fall has all the gorgeous foliage to see (and don't forget the hiking!). One of the fun things to do on the way to or from Lake Chelan in the fall is to stop in at one of the many ap...Read More
