Touriphobia: the fear of being a conspicuous tourist. It’s real; we’ve been there ourselves. So here’s our starter guide to take on Chelan like a local. The in-the-know things to do and see for a great time. It can be done!
Check out one of our annual festivals.
May gives us the spectacular Lake Chelan Wine and Jazz Festival. Sip the best of the Chelan AVA and sit back for some jazz music. Somewhat friendlier to all ages is the free Chelan Earth Day Fair every April at Riverwalk Park. Educational and fun, learn about everything from recycling to electric vehicles!
Go golfing on Lake Chelan — whether you’re a pro or not.
Spring, summer, and fall are all great times to play our beautiful Lake Chelan golf courses. If you’ve got an itch to hit the links, there are three excellent courses within comfortable driving distance of our hotel. So polish your irons, and read our guide for golfing in Lake Chelan!
Visit some of our favorite Lake Chelan restaurants and wineries.
No need to order in. Though it’s cool if you do. But we’d recommend Tin Lilly or Sorrento’s (at Tsillan Cellars) if you want to something different, something you won’t find back home. (Not unlike the rest of the things you can find to do at Lake Chelan, we’d argue.)
Of all the Lake Chelan hotels and Lake Chelan resorts — we make it easy for you to have a great time.
There are plenty of hotels in Chelan WA but Lakeside Lodge & Suites is unique. Our large property and proximity to the shore make for the perfect family gathering or getaway.
