Although it was September and slightly chilly, we did use the Jacuzzi and heated pool once in awhile, but we didn’t seem to get around to using the hot tub on the patio outside our door. Paddleboats and other boats were available at the dock and there was a lot of water sports equipment for rent but we were so busy touring we didn’t have a chance to try them.
The modern oak dining table and six upholstered oak side chairs allowed all of us to sit comfortably while having our meals, and the fully equipped modern kitchen was more than adequate for all our cooking needs. We had Alaskan King Crab one night and were happy to find a pan large enough to heat them. Out on the patio there was a small electric grill, and the men had a good time cooking steaks for another meal. We even managed to cook enough spaghetti for six one night, so we had really delicious food without overspending.
Bed spreads and upholstered furniture were expensive and pleasantly color coordinated. There were double beds in both bedrooms as well as a bureau and closet. The window in each room had heavy wide slat wooden Venetian blinds. We had vacationed with Marian one year and she spent a lot of time in a Laundromat; at Peterson’s we had a washer and dryer right in the unit, which made her very happy.
My other sister, Loretta, had vacationed in Chelan before and she and her husband wanted to come back because they loved to go to Stehekin on the Lady Express that sailed out of Chelan. They insisted on treating us to an overnight stay there so in the middle of the week we sailed the fifty-five miles up lake to Stehekin. We were mountain people for a night at the Stehekin Valley Ranch. (See my Stehekin Valley Ranch entry)
We also day tripped to the Grand Coulee Dam and saw other hydroelectric power dams along the Columbia River on our way there. We also went to Leavenworth, a faux Bavarian village in a magnificent Alpine setting. (See my stories about them)

Our unit was sensational being on the ground level and at the very end looking up the lake...what a beautiful view!
The kids loved this spot and we too were extremely enthused. Great staff and friendly
desk people and a very well run resort. Very roomy and extremely well decorated and clean.
Parking right outside and only a mile away to golf. Across the lake is an Indian casino for those who love to gamble.
We found this both a relaxing place to vacation and also an inspiring place with such magnificent views.Resort Experience:Two bedrooms with all the amenities a family would want. A fireplace in the unit and for the kids stuff a washer and dryer, always a plus.
Ground level was superb, looking out on green mowed lawns and pool, and a view out onto the lake.
Hot tubs and whirlpools, and facilities for fishing all enhanced this site.
It's the best spot in eastern Washington for deluxe accomodations and beautiful setting - we'd gladly go again.

Our room was large with a double bed and a single bed, desk, wardrobe and chair. It was not luxurious, rather a typical central city hotel room, but it was adequate for us. We had a rental car and were pleased to discover that there was off-street car parking at the hotel. Another plus was the free laundry facilities.
Meals are available in the ground floor restaurant. Breakfast is served from 7am to 9.30am. We thought the Continental breakfast (fruit, cereal, toast, coffee/tea) at NZ$9.95 was reasonable value. Cooked breakfasts were available from NZ$8.90-14.90.
