Dads & Grads

There are so many fun things to celebrate in June! With high school and college graduations, Father’s Day, and the return of summer, the energy is perfect for bringing your celebrations to The Lodge.

If you have your sights set on a celebratory stay in the Lake Chelan Valley this June, here are five ways to show your dads & grads the love.

Take it to the Lake

Boat on Lake Chelan

No lake town visit is complete without a lake day. Mountain View Lodge & Resort is within walking distance of the Manson Bay Marina, where you can rent a boat or jet skis from Shoreline Watercraft & Boat Rentals for half and full days. 

Load up the cooler, lather on the sunscreen, and head out with the family for a day of sun, fun, and much-deserved relaxation.

Check Out Lakeside Surf

Lakeside Surf is a newer addition to the Lake Chelan Valley entertainment scene, located above Slidewaters just five minutes outside of downtown Chelan.

Whether your dad or grad is a surfer pro, or novice, they have the opportunity to try their hand at the largest stationary surf wave in the world!

Even if you’re not a fan of surfing, there is a taco shack, coffee cart, and beverage station to keep you satiated while you watch the surfers tackle the waves. Not to mention, there is direct access to both Slidewaters and High Trek Chelan to make a full day of it!

Bring a Picnic & Games to Willow Point Park

Willow Point Park is just a short drive from The Lodge, making it the perfect destination for a sunny park hangout with the family. 

There is ample space to spread out with a portable grill or picnic spread, lots of old-growth trees to provide shade, and direct access to the lake to cool off when the sun becomes too much. Pack a few floaties and tie yourself to the buoys in the designated swimming area for ultimate relaxation. The dads and grads have worked hard — they deserve it!

Go on a Walking Wine, Beer, or Coffee Tour

Downtown Manson

You don’t need to leave the Village of Manson to celebrate big. Within mere minutes of The Lodge are breweries, coffee shops, and wine-tasting rooms to keep you occupied for hours. Whether dad is a beer or wine guy, he’ll have plenty of options to tantalize his palate and discover the joy of craft beverages made from the crystal-clear waters of Lake Chelan.
