“What I like most is how people react to our beauty here. It takes 3 to 4 hours to get here from [Lake] Chelan, on the Ferry, which is a beautiful trip, and most people are so surprised by the beauty here. It’s a hidden gem. It’s very much a challenge to get here, but everyone falls in love with the place, where it’s back to nature, hiking, kayaking, sitting by the water, getting lost in your thoughts, and the beauty around you, it is very serene. It is truly a magical place,” says General Manager Denise Steinhauer.

The name “Stehekin” is a Native American Salishan word that means “the way through.” The Stehekin Valley served as a passageway for travelers, linking the State of Washington’s wilderness to the rugged Cascade Mountains. The North Cascades Lodge at Stehekin offers a way through to a stress-free place of natural splendor, just like it has for many years.

“The majestic view of the mountains and landscape, the magic of the lake with its beautiful color (Lake Chelan). As you sit on our deck that overlooks the lake with the mountains on the other side, it’s very special.”

To Get Here

You will arrive by foot or boat.

“There is a new type of transportation coming to us soon. It is a catamaran, which will give guests a faster way to arrive here. The only transportation we have currently is the Ferry Service. Lady of the Lake.”

So, what are you waiting for? Let the fall-y, folly begin!
