Better Lake Than Never

Welcome to Better Lake Than Never (BLTN) where memories are made to last a lifetime. This 3-story, 5-bedroom, 4.5-bath home was fashioned with three concepts in mind; family, friends, and memories. This home offers 2500+ sq ft of fun and relaxation. Whether you want to unwind on the porch, BBQ on the deck, watch a movie in one of the media rooms or play a game of pool in the other, this home offers it all. BLTN features a variety of sleeping configurations.

The main floor provides a master suite with a King bed, extra closet space, and a 4-piece (double vanity) en suite bathroom. In addition, prepare your meals in the spacious kitchen with Whirlpool appliances while serving on the island or large dining table while viewing the lake. Gather around the fireplace for an evening of conversation or watch a movie on the 55” TV.

The upper level provides a Queen bedroom and Twin XL (with trundle) Bunk room. These rooms each have their own en-suite bathroom. To complete the upper level there is a media room with a 55” TV with a Blu-Ray player.

The expansive lower level has additional bedrooms that include another Queen bedroom and a Twin XL Bunk room (with Trundle). Movie watching doesn’t get any better in the lower level with a 65” TV, Blu-Ray player, and BOSE surrounds sound to enhance your movie experience. Not to worry about laundry needs, we offer extra large capacity washers and dryers, and utility sinks.

Solar blinds finish off all common area windows, while bedrooms and bathrooms have 2” wood blinds. Additionally, BLTN compromises high-speed Wi-Fi, lake towels, an outdoor seating area, and water toys. Enjoy a short walk to the park, courts, pool, fire pit, or the lake itself.

Pets are NOT Allowed at this time.

The Lookout community is growing and there may be construction activity during your stay. Construction hours vary by season but will fall between 7:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. on weekdays and weekends. Please contact Lookout Cottage Rentals at with any questions or concerns.

Nice home with large bedrooms and plenty of space to relax. Porch and fire pit great to make s’mores and relax at the end of the day with a peek-a-boo view from the deck of the lake. Downsides are a smaller kitchen with really only enough for two people to fit in and the dishwasher is old and doesn’t try well which made it hard to run to keep up with dishes. Thermostat cannot be changed but it was a comfortable temperature on the main and lower level. Upper level does not have as good AC and gets hot.

Can’t wait to be back!

Was so pleasantly impressed with how spacious, detailed and the home was as described. My family and I booked this last minute and was not expecting to find a place big enough while in Chelan. This home was more than we expected....from the outdoor fire pits to the fully equipped kitchen. Truly made the stay so comfortable and not to mention the welcoming neighborhood/pools. I would definitely recommend this home and any home in that neighborhood.

We have stayed in a house at the Lookout with two other families for the past five years and love it every time. This was our first time staying in Better Lake Than Never and it didn't disappoint. The house was in good condition and the floor plan was well laid out to accommodate all of us. We would definitely stay here again!
Manager response on 2022-08-23 - Response from Chelan Lookout Cottage Rentals
Hello Greg, Thank you for your honest review. Better Lake than Never has a spacious kitchen with Whirlpool appliances and the living area has a 55'' tv! A perfect place to watch a movie or conversate with your family and friends. The home also offers a media room and this includes a pool table for late night game nights. This place is an excellent to make memorable experiences with loved ones. We hope you keep coming back for your future stays. -The Lookout

We loved the home! 3 floors plenty of room. Our only disappointment was no air conditioning on the 3 rd floor. We were there during 90+ days and the ceiling fans aren’t enough . Extremely hot and we had to purchase a box fan . The bunk bed room on the 3 rd floor was the hottest!

Hello Lauren, thank you for the honest review. Better Lake than Never is an astonishing home that provides lots of space and is comfortable for a family of 12 or less to enjoy. This home is perfectly located near the amenities our community offers to all the guests. We truly apologize for the inconvenience that you experienced during your stay.

The house was great for grandparents plus two families with children. Each family had a TV room on their floor. The deck was a wonderful gathering place. The large pool was a short walk away. A very clean, lovely house. Every year we eat at Sorrentos restaurant. It is kid friendly and the view is awesome!

We really enjoyed staying at Better Lake Than Never! It was wonderful for our family get away. It was just the right amount of space for our group of 10 and the pool table was so fun for the kids. The large outdoor couch and gas fire pit on the back porch made for a really fun way to end the evening watching the sun go down over the mountains and lake. It was truly breath-taking! We highly recommend Better Lake Than Never for a large group!

Please Note - this does not needed to be include for a formal review online... the home needs electric beaters for the kitchen (no way to mix things except by hand) and the light bulbs in the dining table chandelier kitchen table were blindingly bright, so we could not turn on the light over the dining table. Those are just some easy fixes that need addressing.

We take a family vacation to Chelan every year and have stayed in many different places over the years. This year, we were happy to find so many options at the Lookout. Better Lake Than Never worked perfectly for our group. We had three couples and two children. There was plenty of space for everyone and the house was in great condition. The only thing I would change about the house is that I would have the two bunk rooms upstairs instead of one upstairs and one downstairs. The pool is an easy walk and the shuttle to the beach was very quick to arrive after calling them. The central location of the Lookout allows for easy trips to wineries and parks near by. It's just a short walk down the hill to Vin Du Lac, one of our favorite wineries. We're looking forward to returning to the Lookout next year.

Cute House!

We love staying at The Lookout. Getting away during distancing time was essential for us. Better Lake Than Never took care of many of our needs! Kitchen was well stocked with anything you might need. Although there was plenty of space, the living area felt cramped with all of the furniture there (two sofas plus two large single seats). It felt like some of the decor was just recently placed as you could see tags hanging from tables and baskets, a bit tacky! Doors creaked when it got warm (please oil ALL of the doors) inside. And the mattress covers, we aren't going to wet the bed, please don't use the crinkly plastic kind! It would've been nice to be able to access the bikes that were locked downstairs (what's the code?). So much space for 8 people to spread out on the three floors, that was very nice. The listing description compared to the photo descriptions were not matching; I hope they corrected that error (the bunk rooms are not all on one floor, that would be an absolute disaster, could you imagine??). 5 bedrooms is clearly a must-have. Take care of the squeaky doors and the plastic mattress covers, I'll give you FIVE STARS.
