A September 2006 trip to Lake Chelan by andyandcarla

Quote: Winery Tours, A lake to play on....
Lake Chelan Shores Resort is fantastic. The staff is fantastic and very helpful There are plenty of activities to keep you busy. You will love it! However, if you rent or trade for a studio... decline! Do not spend any money on a studio condo room! We slept on a hide-a-bed couch... Yep! Our vacation... sleeping on a pull-out couch! This was one of those pull-out couches that you grandmother had, the mattress was probably that old as well! The bed was held together by a coat hanger, It was a terrible sleeping experience! Be sure what kind of room you are doing to sleep in and on. But, overall, the staff and resort were very nice... just be sure what room you are sleeping in....Read More

Winery Tour


Lake Chelan is a fantastic place to go for a weekend winery tour! They have 12-18 wineries which are open 6 days a week for various hours a day. Most of them have great sitting areas to enjoy some bread and cheese, while tasting some wines. It is great! Most wines are good, some are excellent! This was our first time to go the Lake Chelan winery loop, so we don't have a favorite yet but, most people could easily find a winery with an atmosphere that speaks to you. They are wonderful! Additionally, the usually isn't a "tasting fee" but if there is... they will credit it towards any purchases (which you will do). Enjoy your time in Lake Chelan by tasting some wine!
