I Found My Thrill on Blueberry Hills

I’m still mesmerized by the beauty we’re surrounded by here at Lake Chelan – clear water, snow-capped mountains, crisp, clean air.

And charming little towns nestled along the lake, like Manson, the Village on the Bay.

Located on Lake Chelan, this summer vacation spot is home to wineries and vineyards, apple orchards

apples from washington, apple picking in washington,

and the popular u-pick berry and flower farm and restaurant, Blueberry Hills Farms.

My family and I happened upon Blueberry Hills while out exploring one afternoon and I instantly fell in love.

The farm is beautiful.

The food is delicious.

The restaurant decor is eclectic and fun.

And owner Kari Sorenson is a gem.

Located on the original Sorensen Family homestead dating back to the early 1900′s, Blueberry Hills Farms is such a treat!

Homemade pies, jams, Danish yeast waffles, mouthwatering blueberry sour cream streusel muffins

and a french dip worth driving 400 miles for. Really. The Seattle Times said so.

Blueberry Hills is awash in memories, knickknacks and treasures – each and every piece a small part of Kari’s grandparents’ and great-grandparents’ collection. I adore how Kari incorporated these old treasures into the decor.

Old vinyl records, tin cans and 200+ pairs of eyeglasses and sunglasses hanging from the ceiling.

So much fun!

Family photos, antique perfume bottles, salves,

even a robin’s nest with an egg on display in an old hutch.

And I can’t forget about the chandelier dripping with hidden treasures! Locks, antlers, a note card, shoeshine kit, fork, match box, fishing reel, pocketknife and a bag of marshmallows.

Yes. A bag of marshmallows.

Can you find them all?

Blueberry Hills was such an amazing find. I’m head-over-heels in love. The view was breathtaking. The food was delicious. The service was great and the decor was so much fun.

I found my thrill on Blueberry Hills and I’m definitely coming back for more!

      It's such an awesome place! We've been back several times, but I can't wait until spring rolls around. I'm dying to pick some blueberries and flowers in their u-pick. If you ever make it out here, let me know!
