Prepare to escape from the world as we know it. You have no cell service. No TV. No internet or WiFi - no honking cars or fighting over parking places. The only way to the the town of Stehekin is to take a ferry from Chelan, a float plane in, or hike over the mountain pass into this beautifully preserved location.
We opted for a Kitchen Cabin - , providing us with a fridge, stove, pots and pans, dishes etc. You must bring in with you the food you will use. There is really no store in town, so you need to have what you need & bring it with.
SO, we opted to purchase a meal plan - and we were fed like KIngs 3 meals a day in their beautiful dining hall. The $60 per day addition to our room rate was easily worth it. When in Seattle, we would have been hard pressed for the two of us to eat dinner for $60, and this is good home cooked food. So worth it!
The cabin was totally clean and roomy and lovely.
We enjoyed hiking and biking and a horse back ride through the mountains, up the mountains and on the edge of the mountain side, overlooking the valley below. Absolutely amazing.
Our first evening in Stehekin, we took a short walk and saw bears. Our last day we saw the salmon swimming up stream. It was just awesome.
The Courtney Family that owns the ranch works so very hard to keep everyone accommodated, well fed and happy -it was wonderful.
