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.

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!

Amazing property with beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

When you walk into the guest house it’s beautiful and smells like wine 🍷?🍷? (in the best way possible of course). The decor is warm and inviting and the views are amazing. Such a great place to get away to. Staying at the winery just added the right amount of charm to our wine weekend getaway!

Terrific place with beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

Really loved our stay here. Very clean & comfortable with a gorgeous view. Owners do some nice touches that make it even more welcoming. Location was great for me because friends live nearby and Chelan is a quick drive. If you want a beach, need to drive about 5 minutes to a public beach.

Beautiful views of the lake and vineyards!

A beautiful property, very luxurious! Amazing kitchen. Close to all of Chelan's best wineries (although Nefarious definitely has the best wine in Chelan AVA)

The view

  • 5 of 5

You really can't beat the view. The house was relaxing and clean. And it was a lot of fun being able to walk next door to the tasting room.
