My wife and I discovered the existence of the Waterville Hotel in late 2012 as we returned via US2 to our western Washington home from a visit to Spokane. We were not only intrigued by the idea of what must have been such a grand hotel in such a small town but also loved the sprawling wheatfields rimmed by distant mountains. In search of some solitude, I stayed three nights there during the 2013 Memorial Day weekend and roamed the back roads and made forays into Chelan and Wenatchee. It's magnificent country, and it was a delight to stay at the Waterville Hotel. Don't expect modernity. That's not a part of the plan, but the lack of it is a big part of the charm. Be assured, however, that everything that you really need is there, and the building is clean and well maintained. Dave and Amy are welcoming but unobtrusive hosts. Dave was particularly helpful in suggesting things to see in the environs. I can't wait to go back for another few nights with my wife.
