Description of the Leavenworth vacation townhouse rental
Sit in the lavish living room with that book you have been dying to read and just let all your worries drift off, or go down to the water for a swim or boat ride. Escape all those hectic city woes and relax in true Lake Chelan style. There is no better place to stay!
Inside, enjoy the comfortably furnished bedrooms and the homey and cozy living spaces. Sit inside by the fire or head outside to your private deck and take in the view. Whatever you do there is no better way to relax.
Equally famous are the vineyards that produce many award winning wines. The regional forest has been thinned by several historic fires in the past century, resulting in an open view of the Lake for north shore homeowners. A great many vacation homes are located on this side of the Lake.
Along the north shore are also many reminders of its past. Shiny metal drums can be seen every so often along the shoreline. These served as navigation reflectors for the tugboats that, between 1937 and 1957, hauled copper ore across the Lake non-stop. By shining a light on them at night, the tug captain could calculate his position on the Lake. Boaters still use them today to get their bearings on the long Lake at twilight.
Well past the end of the road, about mid-lake is Prince Creek named in 1886 after a Miner's bellowed horse that was not too sure footed. Not too far way is Lucern Basi, the deepest part of the lake. At 1,486 feet in depth it makes Lake Chelan the third deepest lake in the United States.
At the far end of the lake and accessible only by boat, plane or foot is Stehekin Landing, known as the Gateway to the North Cascades. Part of the National Park Service concession, the landing is a unique get-away- destination tucked in to a still corner of our busy world. Every visitor to Lake Chelan should make the all day round trip run to Stehekin.
Only 100 people live permanently in Stehekin but there are private cabins, camp sites and picnic areas. Be sure to visit the Golden West Visitor Center built from logs salvaged from the 1892 Field Hotel that once welcomed visitors to the Landing.
With bright blue skies for over 350 days of the year, the Lake is a mecca for water sports of all kinds. It is not unusual to see water skiing, canoeing, tubing, parasailing and scuba diving on the Lake during the summer months. Beach combing, picnicking and star gazing all offers a way to enjoy the Lake in a more relaxed manner under the warming summer sun.
The cooler winter months invite everyone to enjoy snowmobiling, downhill and cross-country skiing. Visitors often enjoy trying their hand at making snow ice cream or a snowman near their vacation rental home.
No matter the season, you will enjoy the north shore of beautiful Lake Chelan. Many families return year after year to enjoy the diversity of its amazing beauty. It is a treasured family secret. Sshh!

Reviews for this vacation townhouse rental in Leavenworth, Washington
THE most wonderful experience!
January 5, 2013
I would like to mention first of all, that I have never rented a vacation home/cabin etc in my life! Only hotels or resorts. So when my friend approached me with the idea of renting a cabin for 12 well seasoned adults with lots of travel experience, and myself, the youngest by far in the group organizing this trip....the task seemed very difficult to say the least. After a month of careful research and comparison, we have selected this cabin. From there it was a breeze! The owners immediately responded to my inquiry, which in my month long search did not happen even once before this! The booking process and pricing was very straight forward and easy! The owners kept us updated on changing road conditions. Instructions and directions to the cabin came, just like everything else, precisely, on time, very straight forward , easy to follow. And than the cabin! Everyone was amazed!!!!! Spacious, friendly, fire place, hot tub, lots of parking, Christmas tree, tons of great quality dishes, extra chairs, games, books, very appropriate and cute cabin decor! Appropriate flooring for the heavy in and out travel for wet boots. Lots and lots of detail, febreeze in the bathrooms, magazines on the coffee table... The road to the cabin, the surroundings and the estonishing views of the lake! Gorgeous all the way! We all took our shoes off inside the cabin. It was like home!! We'll be back! Thank you!
