Hotel at a Glance: Riverwalk Inn
The Riverwalk Inn, with its swinging, hand-painted sign hanging on the exterior, resembles an old-fashioned farmhouse. It’s set in historic downtown Chelan against a postcard-worthy backdrop near Lake Chelan and the surrounding foothills. There are personal touches all throughout the inn, including rooms named after the flowers and herbs grown on the property.
- Take a stroll: The Chelan River and Riverwalk Park are just a scenic walk from the inn.
- Friendly owners: There are only about a dozen rooms, which lets the innkeepers give guests individualized attention.
- Venture out: The friendly staff can help arrange boat rides and wine tours or give you tips for other fun activities downtown.
Chelan, Washington: Lakefront Community in the Foothills of the Cascade Range
Chelan lies in the shadow of the Cascade Range in northern Washington, right on the banks of Lake Chelan. The 55-mile-long, glacier-fed lake is a popular spot for boating and jet skiing in the summertime. It’s also a fisherman’s paradise—Lake Chelan has a renowned fish-stocking program that releases hundreds of thousands of chinook salmon, lake trout, and kokanee into the chilly waters each year. The Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest, located west of Chelan, provides ample opportunities to explore the great outdoors on hundreds of miles of hiking and mountain-biking trails.
