Decade after decade, generations of families have headed to Lake Chelan for memorable vacations. An unspoiled frontier, in this quaint lakeside community you'll still find a Main Street reminiscent of a 1950's Hollywood movie set and strangers that smile and say "Hello" as they're passing by.

The region's high desert climate and fertile soil have been attracting homesteaders, ranchers and vacationers since 1886. Unlike its neighbors in Seattle and Spokane, Chelan offers moderate temperatures, mild winters, low precipitation and four distinct seasons under consistently sunny skies. Here, you can inhale the clean air and be dazzled by the night sky where the moon and stars are so bright and seem so close they amaze you with their brilliance. With an average annual rainfall 2" less than Tucson, Arizona, and over 300 days of sunshine, the mild climate invites outdoor living and a host of recreational pursuits.

Lake Chelan is Washington's deepest lake and the third deepest in America. About two miles wide, it is 55 miles in length, extending into the far reaches of the rugged Cascade Mountain Range. The Lake's deep, blue waters attract boaters, swimmers and sunbathers to its shores and the amenities that envelope it.

With spectacular scenery, sandy beaches, and ideal conditions for fishing, boating, swimming, and other water sports, the lake is pure and pristine, making it a favorite destination for city dwellers looking for a refreshing escape from the hectic pace of everyday life.
