Been dreaming about owning a Chelan vacation home? We have 9 reasons why 2017 is the year to make the Lookout your second home:
9: You can live among the vines.
Homesites are available for purchase in our newest neighborhood, the Vineyard District.
8: You can make money and vacation.
Thanks to our on-site rentals program, your home pays dividends when you're away. The Lookout Cottage Rentals hospitality team manages and cares for your home; you collect the rental income.
7: Hotels are out. Vacation homes are in.
Vacationers nationwide (and visitors to Lake Chelan) are choosing luxury vacation homes over hotels. Last year, 67% of travelers planned to stay in a vacation home according to a TripAdvisor Survey. More proof that your home will pay dividends.
6: Chelan is hot.
Home values in Chelan have been on an upward trend since 2012. Over the past year, values have increased by 10.8% and are predicted to rise by 6.6% within the next year.
5: It's boat in.
The Lookout's 70-slip marina means you can go from doorstep to dock in minutes flat.
4: You can walk or bike from your front door to town.
A new roundabout arrives just east of us later this year, creating a new primary entrance to the Lookout and access to a dedicated, multi-use trail to town. Where else do you get waterfront access plus the ability to stroll into town for breweries and boutique shopping?
3: There are playgrounds for kids and adults.
Sandy beach cove? We have it. Expansive parks, playgrounds, pickleball and bocce ball courts, trails, a clubhouse, and a pool? Those too.
2: It's the only place in Washington at the edge of a glacial lake, a National Forest, and wine country.
As a four-season destination, Lake Chelan offers abundant outdoor activities, a growing wine industry, rich community events, and growing boutique, restaurant, craft beer, cider and art scenes.
1: We'll let you try before you buy.
With over 40 homes in our Cottage Rentals program, you can experience the community before you make a purchase decision.
