About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps up to 8 adults and 6 kids)

For those who enjoy boating & water-skiing in the summer or snow skiing in winter, top ranked golf in spring, summer & winter, river-rafting in the spring, or a cozy fall & winter wine & snow adventure, this is the place for you! The Turtle Rock House is 15 minutes away from Desert Canyon and 45 minutes to Gamble Sands, 30 minutes away from Mission Ridge Ski Resort, and steps away from water-skiing on the glassy waters of the Columbia River. You can watch the big game on the 67' HDTV, play ping pong/air hockey/shuffleboard or foosball in the game room, or take a relaxing hot tub after your snow or water ski. With the open floorplan, large kitchen, 3 bedrooms plus a large bunk room, this is the perfect spot for your family or friends to gather.

About Kristy Guise

Four longtime friends purchased the property in 2002 after their first children were born, with hopes of creating a place that their families and friends could enjoy for years to come. Between the two families we have 7 children, and over the past 13 years it has been a fantastic place to gather for holidays, family reunions, birthdays and year-round getaways.

Kristy Guise purchased this house in 2002

Why Kristy Guise chose Washington

115 feet of serene lakefront makes this the ideal setting to enjoy the hot eastern Washington sunshine. The glass water is perfect for boating and all water sports. The winter brings snow and great skiing at Mission Ridge and a great hidden family ski gem called Badger Mountain just 30 minutes away. It offers a very private setting away from the busy city, yet only 7 miles away from the conveniences of Wenatchee, including restaurants, shopping, movie theaters, grocery stores, Costco and year-round sporting events. Several wineries are close by as well. Spring and fall offer unique weather with warmer temperatures and more sunshine both earlier in the spring and later in the fall than anywhere else in Washington.

What makes this house unique

The property is very well layed out, great for large groups. There are 10 beds. 3 families can all have their own bedrooms and bathrooms, with the bunkroom being a perfect spot for all of the kids. The house is well-stocked for large groups with multiple BBQ's, large TV's with plenty of seating, a large game room for kids both young and old, and a large well-equipped kitchen to cook for a crowd. There is a boat launch on the property and a dock with room for 2 boats. There is something for everyone either on-site or close by: water sports, water or snow skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, waterslide park, wineries, movie theater, shopping, restaurants.

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at Turtle House in August 2016, it turned out to be one of our very best vacations. Our group included six teenagers and for the first time no electronics were used until bedtime and no running to the store every day for water, pop and ice. The house is equipped with everything needed including several refrigerators and a wonderful ice maker. The rec room has a ping pong table, foosball, darts. . . you name they have it. We brought our boat and kayaks. It’s a great spot for beginning water skiers and kayakers. Having a private dock was a major plus. On the lawn we had bocce ball tournaments and very competitive bean bag toss tournaments. The owner Kristy was very responsive, instructions were clear and informative and we had our deposit back within a couple of days. We look forward to returning.

Bigger than it looks in the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here for a guys golf weekend. The house is bigger than it looked in the pictures. The game room downstairs was also bigger than we thought. It has a roll up garage door that opens and leads onto the nice green grass in the backyard. Really makes it feel like more outdoor living. We had some nice weather too so that helped.

Perfect for a golf trip!

  • 5 of 5

Great house for a large group. We only stayed a couple nights, but wish it could have been longer! The house is located close enough to multiple nice golf destinations (Desert Canyon, Bear Mountain, and even Gamble Sands is within reach) to make it perfect spot for a group of golfers. Owner was a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend this house!

Great property for our large group of 14 friends. Owner was great to work with and we will definitely be back again. Most of the folks in our group talked about using it for family reunions in the future. I highly recommend this property.

Great place with lots of fun options!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here in June for an adult hockey tournament in Wenatchee. The house was large enough to accommodate all of us without ever feeling crowded. Great kitchen complete with ice maker. Large deck with plenty of seating. Lots of places to just hang out and lounge around. We had fun relaxing in the hot tub and socializing out at the fire pit. The master bedroom is HUGE and was an added bonus! I can't say enough great things about the property and Kristy was very accommodating and was great to work with! The next time I bring a team to Wenatchee, we will definitely stay here again! :-)

Car: recommended

For those families that love the outdoors - boating and best waterskiing conditions on the planet! Golf and the great courses like Gamble Sands, Desert Canyon, and Wenatchee country club. Winter snow skiing at nearby Mission Ridge resort, or river rafting on the Wenatchee river - this is the place!

Spring, summer, fall and winter are all the perfect time to tour several great wineries in the area. There are so many available recreational choices year-round that you will have to decide how many activities you have time for! Biking and hiking trails for all ages and abilities nearby, too!

If your are looking for a home for sports tournaments in wenatchee we are only 6 miles north of the main bridge.

The private home even has its own boat ramp to make it easy to launch and the dock can accomodate a couple boats.
