Lp siding wanting to stain to look like natural wood

Has anyone out there stained lp siding with semi-transparent stain and had good results? I've been told I can use a deck stain or water based stain that sits on top of the siding and doesn't need to penetrate the material. I've been told it won't work, will need to be redone every 2 years and may chip off. I've been told to use solid stain or regular paint, but I don't want a flat paint look. I want a natural wood look in a color like walnut. The lp siding on my house is painted pale yellow. I guess I'm going for the rustic look, like a cabin or barn. Any advice? I can't do a lot of fancy brush work or anything like that.
