How to make bookings
Residents communicate via satellite phone and e-mail, so if you want to make reservations for activities during your stay, it's best to call or e-mail ahead.
Nick and Nancy Davis run Stehekin Reservations (509-682-7742; firstname.lastname@example.org) out of a tiny log cabin on the edge of the boat landing.
They can arrange bookings for dinner at Stehekin Valley Ranch and other activities.
The Stehekin Pastry Company (stehekinpastry.com) is open every day through Sept 28, and from Fridays to Sundays through Oct 12.
