“Beautiful place in the NW”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

Stehekin is a remote area of Lake Chelan. Great for hiking and backpacking. It's a small community with awesome people. Take the Lady of the Lake and enjoy the ride. Once in Stehekin, rent a bike to pedal to Rainbow Falls and, of course, to stop at the bakery a couple of miles in. So relaxing and breathtaking.

“My second trip to the landing”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

This was my second trip to the landing and it was as amazing as the first. We took the quick boat up and stayed at the lodge for two nights. The staff was amazingly friendly and we have many times we went to the lobby to rent boats or for snacks. We really enjoyed our 3 days at the head of the lake. It was an excellent location to be off the grid!

“We will come again.”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

After a long boat ride we arrived at Stehekin. What a beautiful place. The Lodge people greeted us coming off the boat and were very helpful. Lunch at the lodge was good, we enjoyed the special of the day, a bowl of fresh soup and a delicious sandwich. The staff was so helpful for any of our requests. The deck was a great place to sit and take in the lake and surrounding mountains, ths sun was warm and we did not want to leave. The walk to the Golden West visitor center was informative and well worth it. I don't know if I can say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay but I will be telling my friends to take the trip, I know we will again.

“Wonderful Day Trip”
Reviewed 20 January 2013

This place is beautiful if you can stand the long boat ride to get there, It's very secluded and there are many things to explore. Great day trip to get away from it all. You can grab some food and relax or you can head off on trails into the surrounding woods.

“Mountain Paradise”
Reviewed 30 September 2012

At the end of 50 mile long Lake Chelan, lies beautiful Stehekin, Washington home to about 95 full time residents. The only access is by ferry, seaplane or on foot. Enjoy the leisurely Lady of the Lake II or speed along on the Lady express boat, but enjoy the wonderful changing landscape. Part of the Lake Chelan Recreational area, Stehekin offers wonderful hikes, access to the Pacific Crest Trail, trail rides at the Stehekin Valley Ranch, fishing and canoeing. Walk up valley approximately 2+ miles to the fantastic Stehekin Pastry Co., a not to be missed experience. Every couple of hours a shuttle runs up the valley about 11 miles dropping off and picking up hikers. Rainbow Falls, the old Stehekin School, and Buchner Ranch all worth a visit. For those only able to spend a day, arrive on the Lady Express and return on the Lady of the Lake II . A shuttle meets the ferry to take visitors for a visit to Rainbow Falls. What a great place to spend a couple of days of peaceful, beautiful walks and hikes. Good food at the Stehekin Valley Ranch and the North Cascades Lodge. Small store has limited items. During the summer season, rangers present interesting evening talks a visitor's center. This area is seasonal, Check the website for additional information before visiting. Rooms at the North Cascade Lodge were very comfortable.
