SERVING A REGION ENCOMPASSING CHELAN, DOUGLAS AND OKANOGAN COUNTIES
Chelan and Douglas Counties lie on the eastern slope of the Cascade Mountains in the State of Washington, far removed from the urban growth sprawl and unending rain to the west. It is traversed by two major rivers, the Wenatchee River and the Columbia River.
Geographically located just 135 miles east of Seattle and only 165 miles west of Spokane. Translated into driving time, it is only 2.5 hours to Seattle and 3.5 hours from Spokane. It is a 30 minute flight from Seattle to Pangborn Memorial Airport in East Wenatchee. Located 50 minutes from Wenatchee is the city of Chelan. Consistently ranked as one of the most pristine waters in the United States, Lake Chelan’s 50.5 mile length acts as a natural conduit between the rugged mountain peaks up lake and the lush, fertile down lake valley.
Located north of Chelan and Douglas counties is Okanogan County, which is bordered by British Columbia, Canada. The County covers 5,281 square miles, making it the third largest county in the continental United States. Omak, the regional center for services and trade, is experiencing a great deal of growth. The Methow Valley, located on the western portion of the county, is quickly becoming a destination for outdoor lovers and enthusiasts.
