The Stehekin Valley has long served as a passageway for travelers, linking the State of Washington’s interior wilderness to the rugged Cascade Mountains. In fact, the name “Stehekin” is based on an ancient Native American Salishan word meaning “the way through.”
Today, the North Cascades Lodge at Stehekin offers a way through to a stress-free place of natural splendor, just like it has for a great many years. Connected to the outside world only by foot, boat or plane, life is a little slower and more beautiful at the Lodge at Stehekin, which is peacefully nestled along the forested shore of Lake Chelan, the third deepest lake in America.
We invite you and your family to come discover a gateway to a pristine paradise of outdoor adventure, tranquil relaxation, and a chance to get closer to nature and with one another.
GETTING TO STEHEKIN: We love our isolation, but it takes some extra planning for our guests. To get to Stehekin our guests must plan to take The Lady of the Lake (boat ferry) from Chelan, or make the beautiful 23-mile hike from Highway 20 to High Bridge where you hop on the red bus to Stehekin.
