Million dollar view!

Spectacular view, unique house, all the comforts of home...what more could one ask for?
If you manage to leave the view, house and pool for the day there are many things to keep you busy in Chelan.
Golfing, jet ski rentals, hiking, biking, casino, wineries, farmers markets and the list goes on.
Most of our days were spent pool side, reading, napping, eating, dip in the pool and repeat.
The owners of the Glide house are easy to deal with and very helpful.
Our family highly recommends renting the Glide house for your next vacation!

Stunning Spa-Like Retreat

  • 5 of 5
My family and I have been visiting the Glide House for many years. This was our 5th consecutive year. We cannot rave enough about the pure beauty of not only the landscaping and views, but the modern home and design. We have read many articles featuring this home and there are even a few design/architecture books that include the Glide House as a reference and model for green living and northern european design. My wife always compares the home to an asian spa that she frequents. With the bamboo floors throughout, the bright open floor plan, the recycled concrete counters and the full floor to ceiling sliding windows, the Glide House is very much a home worthy of the cover of the magazines it has graced. We have visited the house with different groups of family from 6-8 guests each time. The house is always clean and inviting. We typically spend most of our time outdoors in the pool and on the deck area. At times, our kids swam 8+ hours a day, often through dinner and then passed out playing one of the dozens of games provided. The pool is always refreshing and crystal blue. There is a great pool pappy that cares for the pool and is available 24/7 as he lives right up the hill. There is plenty of room for all of us with 3 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms, plus the long dining table and open living area. The furnishings are cool modern, minimalist with some vintage pieces in each room. We have always had plenty of linens and have only needed to use the laundry a handful of times over the years. The washer and dryer are extra large capacity and fit tons of towels. Owners even provide laundry soap and dryer sheets! However, 24 hour housekeeping is available and offers unlimited linens per your request. The house is stocked with all the kitchen items you could possibly need, more than enough dishes and utensils as well as an outdoor grill and grilling tools. There are many seating areas outside: two large lounge chairs on front deck, the upper view deck has two chairs near bedrooms, the lower view deck has a bistro table with 4 chairs and three lounge chairs, there are two huge vintage modern lounge chairs on the side of the pool and a hammock in the shaded trees. We also go hiking and biking in the hills above the house, as well as golfing and boating. Downtown is just 2 miles away. We always hate to leave and cannot wait to return! We have referred the house to many friends and colleagues. We have already booked our stay for next year!

Amazing Views, Relaxing Vacation, Great Service!

We'll definitely be back again! Prior to our arrival the owner was awesome at providing all the information we needed and answered all the questions we had. She was prompt in getting back to me. She was a pleasure to book with! Upon arrival, the house was very clean and super nice and up to date inside. The pictures don't do the Glidehouse justice! My husband, family and I were looking for a spot to get away from our hectic schedules back home. When we walked into the house the view took our breath away, and we knew the Glidehouse was it. We enjoyed the beautiful open space kitchen, dinning, and family rooms. Two spacious master suites, and the third bedroom has a full bath right next to it. Each of our kids brought a friend so it was nice that we all had our own private bathrooms. Beds were very clean and comfortable, great nights sleep. The kitchen was well stocked, loved cooking in it and on the gas grill. The pool was the perfect temp and we all enjoyed it daily. My kids loved swimming in it at night. If you are looking for a relaxing and special getaway with an amazing view you've found it! We loved this great location! I will definitely be recommending this place to friends and family and can't wait to stay here again myself!

very disappointed

  • 2 of 5
We were very excited to make our yearly trek to Chelan and have stayed at many nicely appointed rental homes in past years. This was our first time at this home and we were disappointed the moment we arrived. The pool was dirty on the bottom - deep end, and the water temp set at 87 degrees, which is too warm to cool off on a 95-98 degree day and found much relief in the lake instead. Furnishings indoors have a Ikea "feel and appearance". The seating in the living room was cramped, meager and very uncomfortable after spending the day outdoors. Outdoor patio table and chairs accommodated 4 people only with no umbrella to provide any shade. Small, stackable washer & dryer forced us to do many loads of towels with eight people. Long and steep driveway leading to house from main road and daily generated trash bags must be hiked down to refuse can as trash truck won't come up the driveway. Landscaping around pool area attracts many bees and we had 2 episodes of bee stings - if your allergic to bees as our son is, bring your epi-pens. Plentiful supply of board games and a few movies and water toys were provided which is a nice touch. Pool area patio is a mocha colored tile and was extremely hot in bare or sandals were a necessity during the day after exiting the pool.
