We brought our two year old and four year old here for a five-day stay. Everyone had a great time and we will be back, possibly for many years to come.
There’s a couple pools, two sandy beaches and one rocky beach. Lots of stuff to do including live music and arts and crafts for the kids.
It was perfect for a family with small children. It’s very popular for groups of all kinds really; there were many families with teenagers or young adults, couples, and some college-type crowds. Everyone played well together and respected those around them.
What we liked most about it is it’s right in downtown Chelan yet you never feel that way because of the way the resort is situated on the lake and within the town. So it’s the best of both worlds — you have the convenience of shops, restaurants and a big grocery store right nearby, but when you’re on the beach or in the pool it almost feels like you’re on an island.
The other thing I appreciated is they clearly try to cater to everyone. The restrooms are gender inclusive. The restaurant has fancy, expensive options but also a very reasonably priced early-bird menu. There’s a beachside bar but also plenty of opportunity to bring your own beverages and cook your own food. They’ve got lots of amenities but they don’t try to push them on you just to run up a tab.
Lake Chelan is beautiful and we’d love to get out and explore more on our next visit.

Came during off season as summer prices and crowds is not our thing. Nice room, clean, lovely view, surroundings/scenery wonderful, really like having restaurant with bar on site also. The staff are great. However had only been once before and it was in Summer during peak season... as we are from out of town we did not know the water is low before peak season and that they have a dam that isnt drained fully until summer. Thus no swimming or wading etc. even though it was warm nice weather. Couldnt really enjoy their sandy beach at all for this reason either. Had 2 kids with us that were bummed. Appreciated that they offer to open 1 pool and a hot tub (upon request) as so close to peak season/summer. Note that during peak season/summer the beach bar is open which is awesome.
