Open Daily Year Round
Named as one of the Top 22 Tasting Rooms by Seattle Met. Visit our working winery to learn about the scandalous piece of history behind the Hard Row to Hoe name. It is not unusual in remote mining areas to find a story about a local brothel, and Lake Chelan is no exception.
Edgemont Lodge was built about 1924 a few miles uplake from Lucerne at Lightning Creek in an area called Point Lovely. During the late 1930‚ construction was winding down at Grand Coulee Dam and a few of the professional ladies moved from there to Edgemont Lodge to ‚serve the miners from the newly operational Howe Sound Mine.
Legend has it that a long-time Manson resident ran a rowboat taxi service from Lucerne to Point Lovely in support of the thriving enterprise. Need we explain more?
