Park Service looking for new manager for Stehekin Lodge

You too can run a lodge in the beautiful Lake Chelan area.

The National Park Service is looking for bids from people interested in running the Shehekin Landing Resort, also known as Stehekin Lodge, on the headwaters of Lake Chelan in north central Washington.

On Oct. 4, people who have a hankering can tour the site and look over the concession facilities. The event requires advance registration, arranged by calling (509) 682-4921 no later than noon, Friday Oct. 1.

The goal is to find a facility operator who will focus on resort services for the peak summer months, with the option of maintaining the facility for the full year.

The current operators, Cliff and Robbie Courtney, don’t plan to rebid. The National Park Service is asking for a 10-year contract for the lodge.

For more information on the Stehekin opportunity, go to http://www.nps.gov/commercialservices.


The National Park Service, in an e-mail, noted:  “Also over the last three years we have made substantial investment in the infrastructure, including approximately $1 million in improvements to the facilities.

This has included a remodel of the kitchen and restaurant, energy efficiency improvements (insulation, windows, heaters, etc.), rehabiliation of employee housing, and improvements to the facade and deck at the resort to name a few.”
