Quality of life is a term heard more frequently now as a motivating factor for business or personal relocation. If you decide to join Lake Chelan Clinic, you will be in excellent company. The Lake Chelan Valley is known for its wonderful climate, breathtaking scenery and central location.
The city of Chelan sits at the southeast end of 52 mile long, glacier fed, Lake Chelan in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. The village of Manson is an unincorporated community that is also a popular vacation destination located on the north shore of Lake Chelan about seven miles up lake.
With a population of approximately 11,000 residents that grows to well over 25,000 in the summer months, the lake is a vacation destination for tourists from everywhere in the world and most especially the Seattle area being only a three hour drive away. We enjoy a high desert climate with over 300 days of sunshine.
There are plenty if opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors with boating, jet skiing, sailing, kayaking, hang gliding, hiking, backpacking, mountain climbing, fishing and hunting. In the winter months, residents enjoy cross country skiing with spectacular views from Echo Valley and several major downhill skiing areas are less than 2 hours drive away.
The Lake Chelan Valley is home to many gifted artists, musicians and writers. Our annual Bach Festival draws performers from across the Northwest. The Wenatchee Symphony and the world-class Sleeping Lady Performance Center are only a short distance away.
Holden Village and Stehekin are two up lake communities on Lake Chelan that provide a unique opportunity for an alternative lifestyle and are reachable only by boat or seaplane.
