Summer time is high season. On weekends, the lake comes alive with boats and seaplanes. The skies in front of The Bluff are often filled with hang gliders as they launch from the Butte directly across the lake. Chelan Bluff, with over a thousand feet of decking, is the perfect place to watch the activity.
The week days are much quieter. The whole area transforms back to a small town. With swimming off the one hundred feet of private waterfront, golfing at the nearby world class courses, hiking, boating, and touring the wineries, a week is almost not enough time.
