Overview

About the property

This two bedroom, one and a half bath loft-style guest house provides the ultimate vacation in wine country for up to two couples or a small family. Airy and spacious, the large main living area offers breathtaking views overlooking our vineyard and Lake Chelan, leather couches, a large screen television, stainless steel dining table for up to eight, eating bar with stools for four and a kitchen large enough (and equipped) to create something as simple as toast or an elaborate multi-course meal. The main floor also offers a full-sized laundry room, powder room, and French doors leading out to a private garden space just steps from the vineyard. Upstairs are two beautifully appointed bedrooms featuring queen beds each with a flat screen television, Sealy Posturepedic Beds, Pottery Barn Linens and unparalleled views. This floor features a large bathroom with double sinks, shower and bathtub.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Ever since our first visit to Chelan in 2009, we’ve been enamored by Nefarious Cellars. It’s not just the wine (which is delicious) but also the craftsmen architecture of the winery, the pastoral setting and, most importantly Heather and Dean and their warm hospitality. I remember saying “now this is where I would love to stay” when I first saw the spectacular view of the lake from their tasting room and patio. Who knew that someday we would actually be able to stay there?



Now, just to be clear: We are very picky travelers. We always stay in the best hotels and don’t typically like to stay in people’s homes. Airbnb and VRBO are just not our thing. We decided this past Fourth of July to stay in Lake Chelan for the holiday. While researching options we received the best news from Nefarious: they were opening up the winery residence for guests. The interior pictures looked amazing and we jumped at the chance – even though staying at someone’s house was not our typical way of doing vacations.



It turned out to be one of the best Fourth of July weekends we’ve ever had. When we got there, we were welcomed by a gift basket of snacks and wine. Dean and Heather thoughtfully left out chalk for our young boys to draw pictures out on the patio. The accommodations are spectacular: impeccably-designed interior, a barbeque for those nights when you just feel like cooking at home, fabulous views of the vineyard and Lake Chelan, and a super fun large yard and play structure for the kids. We were pleasantly surprised to find out that their patio was one of the best places to watch the fireworks! We returned over Labor Day weekend, having had so much fun over the Fourth of July.



We have already booked stays for 2015. Nefarious is now officially our family’s get-away spot in Chelan and will be as long as they’ll have us. I almost fear writing this review because it might make it harder for us to get the weekends we want in the future!

Magical

  • 5 of 5

The most special getaway that turns magical after everyone else leaves.

Nothing compares to having a glass of wine while viewing the vineyard and the lake.

The Guest House is nothing less than Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

No wonder it's always booked out months in advance. If you're thinking about staying here, make plans well in advance! The word is out about Heather, Dean & Eric! About how amazing they take care of their guests who stay at the winery. Sleeping in heavenly beds and waking to the view of Lake Chelan with rows of grapes in the foreground, not to mention decorating straight out of Pottery Barn...man what place! You need to experience it for yourself. Almost forgot....Chelan's best wine the rivals Europes right next door at the tasting room. Just like their wines, the Guest House at Nefarious is Wicketly Good!
