Fifty Shades of Red at Washington’s Lake Chelan


Remember the literary “revolution” thanks to Fifty Shade of Grey? With its erotic fantasies set against the backdrop of a dreary city, the romance novel put Seattle weather on the map for dreamy destinations—and rightly so. During the winter season, Washington state is a thriving winter escape, offering something for everyone. Travel a few hours north of Seattle and you come to Lake Chelan, and equally romantic setting on one of the region’s most beloved waterfront sweet spots. And although Valentine’s day is a month away, we’re unveiling a red hot seductive (and active) getaway for couples thanks to The Lake House at Lake Chelan.


In February, The Lake House at Lake Chelan is offering a Cozy Couples Getaway Package to pair exceptionally with the Annual Red Wine & Chocolate Celebration, taking place February 9-10 and February 16-17.


Begin the two-night stay in a charming suite with a welcome gift of house-made fudge from local favorite Culinary Apple upon arrival. Take in the crystallized mountain scenery along the shores of Lake Chelan from the heated pool or spa, or venture to Dan Morse Park with a putting course before indulging in dinner for two at nearby quintessential restaurant, Andante.


Of course, guests and visitors to the city alike should take full advantage of the decadent Red Wine & Chocolate celebration for two weekends only in February, and The Lake House wouldn’t have it any other way. More than 15 boutique wineries set up shop for tastings and pairings with gourmet chocolate desserts, creating an optimal atmosphere that Christian Grey himself could not make more perfect. Throughout each weekend of the celebration, various wineries also host special Winemaker Dinners, offering a delicious way to celebrate the month of love.


Room rates begin at an astounding $99, saving you enough to purchase a couple bottles (or cases) of your new favorite wine.
