Absolutely lovely, great size and location! We will be back. Wonderful!! Thank you!!
The home was wonderful.
It was a nice place to stay, the main living room was a perfect place for us all to hang out and in a nice location. The bathrooms and bedding were clean.
Had a great time in a beautiful location.
We had a blast staying at this property. It was a very private location with many perks. We were able to play wiffle ball in the large yard, jump off the dock into the river, and most importantly spent time with each other throughout the weekend. The house is amazing, and the separate cottage allows guests to have a private area as well. The hot tub worked great. There was a private beach area and a working grill. I would recommend this house for anyone expecting a family reunion. Great stay with great people!!
Was so nice to have space for my husband & I and our adult kids/grandkids. We each had our own separate areas, plus the huge gathering room with lots of comfy couches and a huge game table. The area was perfect! We had our boat at the dock and another beach area.
Our Family came over to enjoy the calm waters of the Columbia River. We loved the house, detached carriage house, yard, beach, and boat dock. The house was perfect for a multi generational blended family, and slept all 9 of us and 2 dogs comfortably. Looking forward to future visits.
Great location. Close to highway but quiet inside. Large great room and decks for large groups. Access to river was great. Separate house providing two kitchens was appreciated.
Wonderful vacation with our adult children (3) and grands. Tons of room for CornbHole, Croquet & badminton. Two of our guest caught King Salmon, just delicious. Comfy beds, tons of room to enjoy a large family. This is a winner ! We hope to come again ! D & D
Beautiful property. Will stay here again!
We enjoyed our stay! We had 8 little people with us - ranging from 3 months old to 4 years old. The yard was a perfect place for them to safely play and roam.
Beautiful place. Everyone loved it. Close to everything we needed.
This location is so beyond beautiful. The house is huge with everything we needed. Our kids want to make this an every year vacation..
First of all I was very impressed with how the owners responded very timely. The house is plenty big for a larger group and the extra cottage works out great for those who want to join but not always want to be a part of the chaos. Our group consisted of three families: 2 brothers, wives, and children (9 young kids). We also had our parents. My parents stayed in the extra cottage so they didn’t always have to be around all the noise with little kids. The property is very nice. There is also a private beach and dock, but they are hidden mainly out of sight from the kids, the kids did good not going without an adult. The location is great, literally a 10 minute drive to Chelan. Overall a good place to spend with family. I would definitely recommend this place. It is now on our list of potentially staying again in the future!
Our group had a great stay on the river, really enjoyed the property and was perfect for us. If you've got a big group I highly recommend them!
We had a wonderful time at this property. Big enough for a large family but did not feel we were right on top of each other because of the two houses. The cottage is small but comfortable. The main house was perfect and the kitchen big enough for us to cook large family meals. We all enjoyed the outdoors and played games on the spacious lawn. thank you again for renting to us.
Nice vacation stay.
My family and my friends stayed here last week for 2 nights. Everyone loved this house. It's clean and tidy. The highlight of this house is the attached cottage.
Every year, mine is one of six families that goes away for a weekend to play board games together. We really enjoyed the river view and the nice big table for gaming. Would love to come back here again.
Four families gathered for a weekend of fun and it was a great experience!
Great property for a large group! Lots of beds, good amount of communal space. Hot tub was great and the cottage was perfect for the families with little ones.
This was our second stay at this home. It's perfect for our extended family. We love the open space in the kitchen and living room. The layout of the bedrooms is perfect for a large group and our kids love the bunk room. The hot tub is great and time in the hot tub was a highlight of our stay. We hope to be back again!
So much room! Plenty of space for the kids to play and the adults to relax. Beds were comfortable. Living space is really open with a great room/kitchen area that is perfect for everyone being together. We were there in the winter and it snowed - the view was beautiful with the trees and the river. Even saw an eagle perched on a tree riverside. Would be a great place to visit in the summer. Even though it's on the highway, the noise was buffered. Didn't notice it in the house. Would definitely rent again. Property manager was great about getting back to us when we had questions or a minor concern.
The house was really clean and you can see the maintenance is being done regularly. Kitchen has all the essentials and more
We enjoyed our 3 night stay. Plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms to meet our needs. Kitchen was well appointed. Property management company was outstanding and provided excellent customer service. Home was very clean and pet friendly. We also appreciated the Christmas tree.
This place exceeded our expectations! beautiful Home, well stocked, clean, LOTS of space, comfortable... and most of all, communicating with the host was super easy and friendly!!! and to top it off, it snowed so much while we were there the driveway was perfect for sledding and snowboarding!! it was really a wonderland!! We will be back! thank you!
This house was beautiful! Tons of room for everyone. Really nice to have the second house available, although all we did was sleep in it. The kitchen had everything you could need. I was very impressed. The island and the large kitchen table were perfect for our group. The living room area had a lot of room to sit and visit or watch TV. The only issue we encountered were small stains on one of the bedroom sheets. I emailed them and they responded right away as to where to find clean sheets. Otherwise the house was clean. Would definitely stay here again.
very nice home. everything was great.
Since we were there for Thanksgiving, it was awesome having two kitchens!! Lovely property and plenty of parking!!!
This property was great for the size of our group. Everyone had a good time and if it was a bit warmer out we would've loved to take advantage of the large yard. The kitchen area was a great focal point of our gathering and I loved that it was open to the living room area.
The host was great and very responsive. The home was also very nice, the property outside was well taken care of. We had an excellent time here!
Five couples in their eighties so a few more hand rails would be good. If all 7 couples were there, beds would have been tight. But we had a great visit and appreciated the beauty of the location.
12 guys spent a week playing golf in the area. House was everything we asked for. Prepared all our dinners at the house and found it very well appointed. Managers were great to work with. Would definitely stay there again!
Great location to have a family reunion, we all agreed for another year. Wonderful time lots to do rented boats and jet skis and we have lots of toys for the yard. Thanks for a beautiful house.
This property works well for our family of 13 We had a great week!
We enjoyed our stay on the river and the house was just what we expected! Thank you!
We needed a place to stay that allowed dogs and had a safe area for them to run and play. We wanted a dock and easy water access. We needed a place for 11 adults. This property delivered! The kitchen was well equipped. Anything we needed, it was a short drive into Chelan to a grocery store. The beach area in addition to the dock was nice for a paddle board and for the dogs.
Family reunion was a blast. Awesome location with tons of room
A group of us girls stayed at this house for a getaway and it was beautiful! The house was clean and welcoming. The open concept was nice. The little attached cottage was nice and quiet. The hot tub was relaxing. It was only about 10 minutes into town. Would definitely stay here again!
They place fit all our friends in great, the guest house was a huge bonus! Played lots of bocce and corn hole and enjoyed being close to town. Would love to visit again!
roomy house ,well equipped! lots of beds.
Awesome house for a big group. All the amenities you need to stay comfortably and the property is beautiful!
I booked this property for a large family vacation/reunion and we had an absolutely fantastic time. We had 17 people ranging from Adults to teens and children as well as two smaller dogs. Big Pros: - Tons of space and usability - Fantastic views with water access - Enormous yard with privacy from very distant neighbors - Fantastic Communication from the management company. A chlorine float was missing from the hot tub and the management sent someone out the very next morning to fix the issue - Very good pricing that will ensure we come back - Truly only minutes away from Chelan which made store runs easy We will definitely look to come back and are already talking about rebooking in the fall.
This place was big enough for our family, which was nice and hard to fin on Lake Chelan. The only thing that could be better is if the access to the river was easier and the view of the river wasn't obstructed by trees.
Great experience.. beautiful house, beautiful yard
for over 30 years my family has been getting away for a girls weekend and we had a great time this is a lovely place !
We had a wonderful time. What you see in the pictures is what you get. We all had a great time with everyone one might need to have a carefree vacation.
Everything was clean, and all the necessities where there. We loved staying there.
We had the best stay at this home during Chelan's Winterfest. Our family wanted a house where we could all be together and enjoy the Winterfest event. The best thing about the weekend ended up being the time we spent together in the house. As I was trying to find the right place for us, I kept coming back to this home. This house was perfect for us!!! The layout couldn't have been better our family (parents, grandparents, great grandparents and 3 children). We enjoyed having the bedrooms on both floors of the main house and in the cottage. This allowed us plenty of room so that we could all have our own space and not feel like we were on top of each other. The large living room and open kitchen/dining area gave us lots of room to gather and hang out together. One of the important things, as I was choosing a home, was couch space. I knew we would spend lots of time on the couches and wanted enough space that we could relax and be comfortable. I also loved having a completely separate place in the cottage to cook, sleep and get ready in the morning. The hot tub worked great, and everyone enjoyed it. This was really a bonus for our family. We also enjoyed the beautiful view! The property management company was very communicative about our stay and easy to reach. I would definitely recommend this home and hope that we can stay there again next year!
Get ready for breath taking views of the Columbia River and the surrounding hills. We went during the winter and everything was covered in snow…Amazing! We are also a boating family…we would definitely look to stay here during the summer as well…it has a very nice dock.
Excellent home with amazing views. We took our family of 16 and there was plenty of room for everyone. We all felt very blessed!
Enjoyed the 2 separate spaces for a group our size. All in all a great getaway!
The property was amazing and my whole family loved it!! We stayed for our annual family vacation and it fit all of us and room for the kids to play and run outside.
We were a group of 16 and the house and cottage perfectly suited us. The house has a great layout for a large crowd. The great room easily accommodated our large party of 16 (9 adults, 7 kids, ages 2 - 18). The kitchen was well stocked and easy to maneuver. They had kids dishes which was a very pleasant surprise. We all really loved the house. Throughout our stay, the management company was very responsive!
We had a great time at the house! We were celebrating a 50th anniversary and we had plenty of room for everyone. The response time was great easy communication. Overall the property was perfect and the views were great!!!
Great gathering place for large groups! A lot of space. Secluded.
2nd trip to location. Great property and location, minutes from town. Enjoyed the outside facilities more this trip, plenty of dining outside and created a croquet challenge course over 3 tiers of lawn!
We had fun.
Great for reunions, Family events. Very private
The house was wonderful and the location was perfect. You have easy access to the river, it’s only a few miles from Chelan and the house had everything you needed.
The house provided the perfect space for our big clan to spread out. We loved being on the water, soaking in the hot tub, playing cornhole on the sprawling manicured lawn, and making daily trips to the nearby coffeeshop.
Large outdoor space on the river. We stayed here with a group of friends in late June/early July. The views of the river and outdoor grass area were nice. We appreciated that the house had 2 coffee pots for a large group. There is a small, rocky beach area that we used to set up chairs and tie up floaties. Property is located about 5 min outside of Chelan.
Beautiful house and a view.
We had a great time.

Three families stayed with seven children altogether. Massive house. Detached cottage was barely used because the house had ample space in itself. Expensive well-kept yard. Ready river access. Brought kayaks to explore this quiet bend of the Columbia. Quick access to hikes and Chelan proper. Very clean, well stocked and appointed. An incredible value!
Great place for family
Spacious house with beautiful views of the river. Short drive to Lake Chelan. Big yard for kids to play. Very well stocked kitchen, was able to have a full family Easter dinner there. Owners very communicative. We loved our stay here!
We really enjoyed our stay at the River house with lots of room for the family to play and rest. Perfect place for large gatherings!
We went with 6 people/golfers total. The house was clean, there was plenty of space to hang out and entertain. The location and time of year was gorgeous right on the river, and there was a ton of space outside to hang out and play games. Overall a great experience!
We had 6 adults and it was very comfortable. Great views too!
Great property. Easy process & lots of possible activities.
Well appointed for 8 guys to stay and play golf in the area
Perfect place for large gatherings!

This beautiful property was perfect for our getaway. The beautiful views and surroundings left us feeling refreshed. We would love to stay there again.
We are so happy we found your place. Host is very responsive and accommodating! Thank you for letting us use your place this Christmas!
Overall the kitchen was adequate with everyting we needed. Large common area for visiting. Plenty of sleeping areas.
We had a small, intimate wedding on this property that was amazing due to the size of the yard, view of the river and isolation from other homes. Those who stayed had plenty of room, the guest house beds were so comfortable, both houses were well stocked and all living areas were spacious. We would rent this property again!
We cannot thank your team enough for the incredible stay! The house was wonderful and your team was more than helpful!
We had a great 2nd year at the Columbia River House in spite of the smokey air. Jennifer went into high gear to find emergency lodging for us on July 27, when Hwy 97 was closed past Orondo and we couldn't get to the house. Thankfully it was open Saturday morning and we were able to get to the house before noon. Guests ranged in age from 75 to 4 months. We took advantage of all amenities from the spacious decks and lawns to the beach and hot tub. The close proximity to Chelan is a big plus. Women enjoyed Yoga and wine and Tsillian Winery; guys golfed. Walmart saw many "last minute" pick-up runs. We already have reservations for next year, and are looking forward to another week of fun on the water.
We had a great stay, beautiful wedding and would book again!
Our family had a great time here! We had multiple children and the space was great!
The house and annex were big, perfect for our group of people and we very much enjoyed our stay.
100 % highly recommended... Very clean, spacious and awesome property...serene and amazing view...definitely we'll be back again this summer
Fantastic rental! Perfect for our group getaway. Loved the spacious living area, separate cottage, views of the Columbia river, and proximity to Chelan. Couldn't have asked for a better fit for our needs.
Very clean. Very beautiful and comfortable!
Our girl group just spent three fun-filled days in your lovely home. The location was perfect and the pictures and descriptions of everything were spot on! The house and property are well maintained and has all of the necessary amenities. We even had beds for everyone! Cindy was a pleasure to work with and all transactions were quick and smooth. I would definitely recommend this house for your vacation.
We recently spent 3 nights at this beautiful home on the Columbia River just outside of Chelan, Washington. This get-away was for an all-women knitting retreat, and this property couldn't have been more perfect in meeting our needs. The location was close enough to town to offer us options for dining, hiking, shopping, and wine tasting. The view from the house and large decks was outstanding. There was adequate parking for everyone. The house & cottage were absolutely beautiful with plenty of comfortable sleeping areas, numerous bathrooms, and a large fantastic kitchen. The open living room was perfect for large group gatherings. This was a very special place that we were most lucky to find. I would recommend it to anyone for large family get-togethers or for several couples sharing expenses. You won't be disappointed.
Oh MY! Most homes that sleep 20 mean the younger ones will be on couches. So not the situation with this magnificent home. We all were able to eat and play games in the enormous dining room and kitchen. The couples with little kids were able to retreat to the cottage when their children were ready to nap. With 5 bathrooms we were never waiting. Oh yes after participating in the Lake Chelan Polar Bear Plunge it was so nice to jump into a "hot" hot tub. We rotate places for our family reunions so the drive is not always long for some of the people but the people that had to drive awhile to get here said they loved the place and we may just make this our annual reunion spot.
My wife and I were getting married at a Chelan winery, and we chose this place for housing our immediate families visiting from Australia and the east coast. The house was ideal; plenty of room for the fourteen of us, and only five to ten minutes drive from Chelan. The master bedroom in particular is very comfortable, with its own access to the deck, private bathroom and large closet area that we found useful for arranging wedding items. We had a barbeque dinner with extended family one evening, and there was plenty of room on the expansive deck for entertaining a larger crowd. This place would be excellent for family gatherings. We also enjoyed using the small beach area, including friends visiting for a post-wedding breakfast who launched a kayak from the beach, and my brother and I even swam across the river one morning. Surprisingly, despite the warm weather, we found the hot tub great for relaxing after cool morning river swims.
My family is scattered all over the west coast and we haven't all been together at once for 5 years. My wife's birthday this year was a milestone so we decided to all celebrate together. This was the perfect place for our 3 generations to come together - plenty of room for our 10 adults & 5 children (the grandkids loved the bunk bed room) in the houses, the oversize decks for outdoor meals, the huge grasssy yard, proximity to Beebe Park, access to all kinds of watersports, shopping, and dining options. It was tough to leave it all and go back to reality. We highly recommend this for a large group gathering!
I booked this place for a bunch of friends and family to get together over a 3 day weekend. From the beginning, the process was smooth and seamless - the directions were clear and easy to follow and the house itself was just beautiful - perfect for our needs! We were a group of 18 people (kids + adults plus 2 dogs) and at no time, did we feel a shortage for space or activities to do. The house is spacious - the bedrooms are well laid out and maintained and the kitchen was brilliant with every amenity that we could have required. But the best part of this place was the deck - with gorgeous views all around and the large spacious yard - even the dogs were sad to leave. :) I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a short or long getaway with a small or large group. Just awesome!!! We would come back to this place any time!
We had a group of ladies that has taken Memorial Day weekends for over 30 yrs. Some have been there from the start and some are new additions, but it is a fantastic time to bond and catch up on our lives. These two houses offer plenty of room to roam and provide group gathering locations for up to 12 both inside and out. We all ate dinner at the same table! The hot tub was a wonderful addition, after the drive over the mountains. We utilized the yard for relaxing in the sun and the decks were perfect for afternoon gatherings, after our different trips into and around Chelan during the day! I would highly reccomend this house to a large group. We are already booked for next year and are even extending our stay by one day to enjoy the houses longer!
This house was absolutely beautiful and the scenery was even better. It was so quiet, and so calm; the perfect place for a family get together, reunion or intimate wedding. The home is in great condition, and has a beautiful kitchen to cook in. The furniture and beds are very comfortable which is a plus. My family & I rented this home to spend Christmas with each other, with family coming from 4 different states to all meet here. There was plenty of room for kids to run, and adults to relax; especially in the hot tub. I would highly suggest this home to anyone looking, as it is in a great location and is so beautiful! The listing was exactly what we saw when we stayed at the home; everything was accurate. The manager was very helpful with our questions/concerns and even went out of her way to put in a Christmas tree for our use. The listing photos were accurate with the furniture and space, as there was plenty of space for everyone in our large group! We would like to extend our thanks to the owners for this beautiful property! We look forward to future stays!
