Nestled on a hill near downtown Chelan and boasting views of the lake and surrounding mountains — The Lookout is an adorable lakeside village that is definitely a ‘do-not miss!’
Established in 2014, The Lookout offers guests lovely vacation homes fit for all family sizes, some with up to 6 bedrooms! Each house offers a unique feel as they are all individually owned and decorated. Various properties feature fireplaces, private hot tubs, and some are even pet friendly!
The village is designed to perfection with each home lined side-by-side in a large circular layout, but also offering privacy and space for outdoor areas.
The center of the village has all your favorite amenities to make both a sunny and cold winter day entertaining. During the summer months, guests can enjoy many outdoor activities like the large outdoor swimming pool, pickleball court, open park for lawn games, BBQ area, and a handful of hiking and biking routes.
Although we came during the winter, and much of these summer activities were not exactly useable due to the snow, we did enjoy the warm outdoor hot tub and community fire pit. There’s even s’more ingredients at your disposal if you’re in the mood for a chocolate-marshmallowy treat.
When The Lookout opened in 2014, they started with 9 homes, and among them was the beautiful K Syrah. This charming 2 bedroom abode is perfect for romantic getaways, a personal place with space for the kids, or a double date weekend house.
Upon entering the home, you’ll notice the decor and large windows. It features a modern rustic theme throughout, from the beautiful softwood finishings that frame the entryway and windows to little additions, like the bedroom headboard and wall art. These unique touches really make the K Syrah feel like another home.
The living room features a 52” flat screen smart TV that is connected with an Xbox One, and all your favorite streaming apps, like Netflix and Vudu. The surround sound stereo is outstanding and even connects to the patio speakers so you can enjoy some porch time while listening to your favorite tunes.
There is a large pull-out couch, and two chairs to allow all your guests to relax in front of the TV in comfort. If it’s a cold night, there are a handful of blankets in the bedroom closets and on the chairs to bundle up in.
Be sure to bring some food along, as this chef-style kitchen is fully stocked and ready for some cooking! Each cabinet has bakeware, silverware, dishes and the pantry even has some oil and seasoning on the ready for you. Upgraded stainless steel appliances and lots of countertop space make it easy to get something yummy on the table.
The dining room also features that rustic-wood touch and seats six, with a beautiful candle chandelier hanging above. During the summer months the K Syrah has a gas grill in the back patio for cooking up some BBQ meats.
The master bedroom includes a queen bed with a 30” smart TV, dresser, full size closet, and private bathroom. Next to this bedroom is a full-size washer and dryer — pods and dryer sheets included!
The second bedroom is more fit for a kids room, and has a bunk bed with a queen and twin size bed. To make this room even more of a kids favorite, it features a 42” TV and Xbox 360 with a handful of games! Don’t forget to look inside the bottom bunk drawer for puzzles and boardgames. There is a bathroom located adjacent to this room and it has a full bath.
During the summer months, the front porch and back patio will probably be your favorite lounging area. The front porch has several chairs with pillows, and amazing views of the mountains, making it the perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee. The back patio has a large outdoor table, along with the grill, perfect for summer BBQs!
In the back patio there is a shed with a variety of pool toys, and on the front porch you can find two adult bicycles for an evening stroll through the village.
Lucky for you, K Syrah is a pet friendly home, so feel free to bring fido along!
Opening this summer, is a whole new expansion to The Lookout! More homes, more outdoor areas and more pools. We are super excited to return in the summertime and share with you all about the new additions.
Also launching in the summer is a new vineyard park where guests of The Lookout can enjoy a leisurely stroll through the park, that will meet up to a trail that will take you into downtown Chelan and the Vin du Lac winery, which is located just a few minutes from The Lookout.
