Is it Summer Yet?

With the darkest day of the year approaching (December 21st) it’s also the time of year Allison and I start thinking about our place on Lake Chelan (technically our summer home is located in Manson – 7 miles “uplake” from the town of Chelan).

While the Chelan Chamber of Commerce boosts an average of “300 days of  sunshine”, it’s May through September when warm to hot days ranging from 75-95 degrees are common.  Lake Chelan is the third deepest freshwater lake in the U.S. at 1,486 feet deep and compared to the “west” side of the Washington state lakes, visibility can be as much as 40′.

Driving to Lake Chelan from the Greater Eastside is easy with multiple routes that wind through Snoqualmie and Blewitt or Stevens Pass.  No matter which route you take you can be in this bit of paradise in less than three hours.

Thinking about making a move to a little bit more laid back lifestyle?  Lake Chelan is a great location with plenty of opportunities for a summer home or vacation property.  To learn more about Lake Chelan living email
