We offer 3 different waterfront vacation rentals in Lake Chelan and Crescent Bar, WA. Each loacation has so much to offer
Boating — Bring Your Own or Rent
There are a couple year-round public boat launches, and several seasonal launches on Lake Chelan. See the map below for launches, pump-out and refueling stations. Also available for rent: boats, water skis, wakeboards, tubes, scuba gear, paddle boards, canoes, kayaks, and personal watercraft.
You can’t come to the lake in the summer and not take a dip! Many city and state parks have great beaches and protected swimming areas. If you are a hearty soul, you can participate in the Polar Bear Splash event which is part of Lake Chelan Winterfest during Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend in January.
Kids love scouting the bottom of crystal clear Lake Chelan for hours of fun. Many local retailers sell snorkel gear. The simplest of equipment, rubber mask, mouth piece and a sense of adventure is all you need. Don’t forget the sunblock!
Canoe & Kayak
A fun way to see the lake is by paddling around in a canoe or kayak. If the big lake is daunting, try one of the smaller lakes near Manson, or the Chelan River at Riverwalk Park. If you don’t bring your own, rent one!
Water Ski & Wakeboard
One of the most popular recreation activities on the lake is being pulled behind a fast-moving boat on skis, a tube or a wakeboard. Often the best time for calm water is in the morning or late afternoon.
Stand Up Paddle Board
Stand Up Paddle Boarding (SUP) is the fastest growing watersport in the nation. It involves propelling a large surf-like board with a single paddle while balancing atop a body of water. Due to its versatility and ease of learning, Stand Up Paddle Boarding has become the hippest way to explore all types of waterways.
