Fall is for lovers in Lake Chelan!

Fall is for lovers. There’s something irresistible about laid-back autumn days in Lake Chelan; the foliage is hued in oranges and reds, wine is flowing at harvest festivals and magic-hour hikes are somehow even more breathtaking.

Hot Tip: It’s a perfect time to plan a grown-ups-only retreat to savor the past summer’s sweet rewards.

Your New Crush

Wine tastes even better when you get to help make it. Grab a first hand (or foot) experience of the harvest at the Lake Chelan Crush Festival in October.

Stomp grapes like an old-school vintner, visit with winemakers, sample award-winning wines at participating wineries and find special food-and-wine pairing menus at local restaurants.

Trail Making

We adore all seasons in Lake Chelan, but fall scores serious bonus points with lovers of the outdoors. Hiking, biking and golfing season, powered by sunny, 70-degree days, stretches well into October here. It’s like a pre-winter warm-up for weekend warriors—and we have a hunch you’ll want to call in “sick” on Monday.

Hands-On Harvest

It’s no secret that we love our valley’s growers. What we love even more, though, is introducing them to new folks. Take advantage of the many opportunities to get up close and personal with winemakers and farmers in the fall.
One pick: Stehekin’s Buckner Homestead Heritage Foundation Harvest Festival in October, where you can make your own juice from apples just off the tree.
