JOIE DE VIVRE

Joie de Vivre (or "Joy of Living") is a French phrase often used in English to express a cheerful enjoyment of life; an exultation of spirit. That's the way we feel about the Lookout at Lake Chelan and about our home.

Joie de Vivre, completed in 2016, is a spacious three story, 3,095 sq. a . home with four bedrooms and four full baths with expansive views of Lake Chelan from our two lakeside decks and patio. The original third story bedroom window was changed to a large deck for guests to enjoy a more encompassing view while sunbathing, hanging out, or star gazing. We feel the view is breathtaking from the third floor and we all agree it is our favorite part of the home.

The inverted floor plan has the master and living room/dining/kitchen on the second floor to enjoy the expansive views while cooking, watching TV, or just relaxing by the gas fireplace. There are several stately poplar trees that filter the view during the summer months, none the less, I think you will all agree that the views are still incredible, and it is relaxing on a breezy day to watch the trees sway in unison with the wind.

The dining room table has seating for 10 with six chairs and a full-length bench. The table and bench were custom made in Portland and use repurposed wood that came from the Oregon State Hospital in Salem (think where they filmed "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest"). There are four bar chairs along the island bar to provide additional seating.

While keeping the idea of the guests' comfort and enjoyment in mind, we also made changes to the first floor eliminating one of the bedrooms and creating a larger media room. This area has electronics (65" HDTV, X-Box One, and DVD library), an 8 ft. slate pool table, an assortment of games and puzzles, and two sets of sliding doors leading out to a lovely patio and a small courtyard with expansive lake views. The first floor also has a bunk room for the kids that sleep five.

We thank you for choosing Joie de Vivre. Enjoy life and have fun.

Dogs are allowed at Joie de Vivre. Maximum of 2 dogs, 70 pounds or less, crate sleeper, potty trained. NO Puppies

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. – 6:00 p.m. on weekdays and weekends. Foundation work may start before 7:00 am. Please contact Lookout Cottage Rentals at 509.888.7677 with any questions or concerns.

The house was beautiful and clean. The pools and spa were perfect for multi-generation fun. My goal was to find a place for a larger family reunion next summer. Perfect place for next summer. Two hours after returning home I booked for next August. The marina is a wonderful bonus. So much to do, hopefully our family will return for many years!

We have been vacationing at the Lookout for many years; since there were no homes built beyond Jackrabbit Lane, and Joie de Vivre is by far the best home we have ever stayed in. The spaciousness, the views from the decks, the amenities all are superior. We loved our stay! Thank you.

the house was great for a long weekend at the lookout. We dind't know there would be a park construction across the stree. All the maps looked like that park was completed. The house pictues are decieving cause it looks like there are not houses right next doow, and the view looks more grand with smaller trees in the backyard.

This is a beautiful, large home. We were a group of 5 adults and 2 kids and had plenty of space, with two king bedrooms, one queen bedroom, a bunk room, and 4 full bathrooms. The king beds/double sink baths are on the top floor overlooking the lake, and on the same floor as the kitchen in the front of the house facing the neighborhood . The deck on the third floor gets full sun with amazing views of lake. An amazing spot to relax.

The July review notates a lot of construction noise and hassle, but the home down the street was mostly complete when we were there and we had little impact. There is a "future park" across the street and the neighbors are pretty close.

The amenities at the Lookout are great. This home is located near to the stop for the ATV ride down to the lakefront beach, which was very convenient.

Highly recommend this house and the Lookout at Lake Chelan. We had 11 people in this house (4 kids) and there was plenty of space for everyone. The kids loved the bunkroom. We loved the great views and dinners out on the balcony. It is a quick drive to Chelan and you have access to two pools and the beach. The beach area was great for the little kids. We will definitely be back!!!

It was the Joy of Living!

Thank you for opening up your home! It was very spacious. Each bedroom had a full bathroom. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking and serving utensils. Centrally located. The shuttle to the beach was only steps away. The pool was close too!
We had to call the front desk 2 times for more TP, garbage bags, dish soap and laundry detergent. They were quick to reply and bring them. Maybe next time, you can leave more so we don't have to call.

It was a awesome stay!

We had a wonderful week in this amazing home. Lots of room for everyone. Loved the pool table and back yard fire pit. Lots of outdoor spaces as well as indoors. Very comfortable. The community is great too with valet golf carts that take you up and down to the beautiful beach. Pool and kids playground lots of fun. Only downside was the construction on both sides of the house but that should be done by next summer. Also wish they provided more paper products and cleaning supplies. But we asked for some and got them. The staff at the check-in place could be a little more professional and friendly.

The house was/is beautiful and well appointed for our family vacation. There are 2 master bedrooms each with a king bed and en suite bathroom which wasn’t noted in the description but worked wonderfully for our group. The kids enjoyed the set up downstairs with the bunk room and media room and we had plenty of space for everyone as well as great places (main floor), decks and back patio for the group to gather. The house is also close to the pick up spot to go down to the marina which is super convenient. The only downside was all of the construction and landscaping crews that were working everyday surrounding the house - blaring music in the morning and blocking our car in the driveway with their trucks nearly every day. Tried reaching out to the property management folks and got little to no response even when I specially asked for the manager to call us. This was our 3rd visit to the Lookout (at different properties) and we’ve never had an experience with the management staff like this before. We would love to rent this property again in the future but ONLY if we could confirm that there is no work being done directly adjacent to the property again (or the park planned directly across the street) and that the management confirmed that they will enforce the parking rules for construction and landscaping teams so we could get our car in and out of the driveway without all the hassle.
