Named by the Indians, STEHEKIN means “The Way Through”, in their case, the way through the mountains to trade with Pacific Coast tribes. Although there are twenty some miles of road up the Stehekin River Valley, the only way to reach this remote community is by water, float plane, or hiking over mountain trails.
The residents and businesses in Stehekin rely on boats and barges to bring them everything from groceries and supplies, to cars, equipment, building materials, and of course, tourists. There are approximately 80 year ‘round residents of Stehekin, who join us in the tourism activities of Spring, Summer and Fall.
A small convenience store is open at the North Cascades Lodge, but for most groceries, the closest grocery store is down lake 50 miles in Chelan. Residents are able to send a grocery list along with a blank check to the store in Chelan for their order to be filled. Their groceries are then picked up and delivered to the dock in Stehekin by Lake Chelan Boat Company. As you would suspect they may be a little better at planning than those of us who have a store just down the street. The U.S. Mail travels on the passenger boats also.

Holden Village, A PLACE APART
No roads lead to Holden Village, which makes the journey itself exceptional. Most visitors arrive by boat, taking the historic Lady of the Lake ferry from Chelan or Field’s Point to the Lucerne boat dock. There are also a small proportion of visitors who choose to complete the pilgrimage on foot – hiking into the Village from trails connected to the Pacific Crest Trail.
The isolation of the Village creates room for a unique way of life at Holden. As a “place apart,” Holden inspires rhythms of living that vary with the seasons. Summer offers a diverse program menu from learning sessions by visiting faculty to art courses, family programs, and games. Other seasons offer their own rhythms, providing time for personal reflection, outdoor recreation, exploration of our art and craft studios, and good conversation.
Nestled in the mountains of the beautiful Glacier Peak Wilderness, Holden provides space for visitors to get back to basics. The Village welcomes all who seek rest and renewal to take part in daily rhythms of work, recreation, worship, and shared meals with good company.
Please visit Holdenvillage.org for complete information and reservations.
