This luxury cabin is located on Spencer Hill, a secluded treed acreage conveniently located just 30 minutes from Omaha or Lincoln and footsteps away from Lake Wanahoo. This splendid retreat is ideal for couples, families, business or social gatherings or anyone wanting to get away from the hectic pace of life.
The cabin features a 2400 sq. ft. open floor plan decorated with modern/rustic furnishings, knotty pine cathedral ceilings, reclaimed antique barn wood flooring and granite countertops. The 3 bedrooms/3 baths are appointed with luxury linens. The 4+ acre property is 600 ft. from Lake Wanahoo which offers biking, hiking, kayaking, fishing and is a bird watcher's paradise!
The cabin is situated on 4.5 beautifully landscaped acres with complete privacy. Many large windows offer awesome views of Lake Wanahoo. The only noise is that of Mother Nature and an occasional crowing rooster. A tepee that sleeps 4 is available at an additional charge for the adventurous in your group.
Guests will have full access to the cabin which includes 3 levels:
Main floor has a fully equipped kitchen, a great room with dining capacity for 10-20 and amazing views of the lake, a gas fireplace, a master bedroom with a queen size log bed.

Music is available through a Blutooth supported Harman Kardon stereo receiver and can be heard throughout the cabin and outdoors via built in speakers. An Apple Nano loaded with various playlists is available for your use.
The quiet town of Wahoo is located 1 mile south and offers many conveniences from fast food to restaurants, banks, a bakery and two grocery stores. The town also has an 18-hole golf course, a large park and swimming pool and is the site of the Saunders County Fair. Omaha's world class Henry Doorly Zoo, the College World Series and the annual Berkshire Hathaway meeting are an hour's drive away. The Wahoo Municipal Airport is also located just 1 mile east.
We are sorry but due to allergy issues we cannot accommodate pets. We also do not permit smoking or excessive drinking on the premises at any time.
Over 30 years ago Spencer Dorothy and his son, Rick, purchased a 4-acre hill of dirt as a borrow site for their excavating business. Never did they dream that the State of Nebraska would later dam up Sand Creek for flood control and create beautiful Lake Wanahoo, a 662-acre lake, only 600 feet from their property! We hope that developing this land and sharing it with you is something that honors Spencer’s life. Spencer passed away on November 23, 1997, one year before the concept of Lake Wanahoo was born. Owners, Rick & Linda Dorothy
Linda purchased this cabin in 2012
This wonderful parcel of land has been in the family for over 30 years. When the state of Nebraska decided to build the dam for Lake Wanahoo, we began developing the land as a special place for families and other groups to enjoy each other and nature.
The views of the lake are what prompted the building of this first cabin on Spencer Hill. Wanting a special rustic feeling, we chose various woods for the finishing. The decks are perfect for birdwatching and provide a private, quiet relaxing place to reflect with God and view nature.
Where do I even begin? Spencer Hill is a little slice of paradise. Yes, we were wondering if we had picked a place too far from Omaha and the zoo, but absolutley NO, we did not..It was actually hard to leave the house and go anywhere other than right there and enjoy all Spencer Hill has to offer! Not one aspect of you stay is overlooked, the owners have thought of everything one would need. All you have to bring are clothes and food. The array of games is amazing (both indoor and outdoor). The home is stunning, the acreage is perfect size, the lake view is awesome and the little town of Wahoo, NE is only 2 miles or less away if you feel the need to not cook in the tremendous kitchen. The firepit was utilized as much as possible by us as it did get chilly all three nights. We did force ourselves to leave one entire day to take Greyson to the zoo, but what a pleasure it was to come back "Home" to rest our exhausted feet and prepare a great Birthday dinner for my son-in-law. I hadn't been back to my home long enough to unpack before I was mentally trying to figure out when and how to afford to go back. I am an ex-"innkeeper" from Eureka Springs, AR; so I am 100% aware of the work involved in keeping a place up when it is rented out to travelers and I commend Linda on how spotless Spencer Hill is kept up. It's hard work! BUT... what a perfect place to stay.. I can't wait to go back.
PS.. in the great informational notebook provided, Linda suggests places to eat and shop.. she knows what she is talking about on those cute little shops that are actually pretty near Spencer Hill. Thx again Linda and Rick.
Great place with everything in place. All you have to do is show up. We utilized everything at the cabin and enjoyed. We did not spend anytime on the lake as we were there for business.
We absolutely loved every minute of our stay at Spencer Hill! Everything about the cabin is just gorgeous and the views are amazing! It was the perfect place to have all of the girls in the wedding party stay the night and get ready the next day! It made for wonderful pictures on our wedding day and I couldn't be happier! The couple that own it are so sweet and went above and beyond to make our stay one to remember! I would highly recommend this luxury cabin to everyone! You won't be disappointed!
My husband and I celebrated our 30th anniversary with our adult kids and 2 grand kids with family cabin weekend. There was a lot of thought and planning that went into this "cabin", the amenities and well stocked kitchen. As our 3 year old granddaughter said as she was seeing all the rooms for the first time..."whoa", was priceless! The dining room table is a great spot and size for dining, plus playing cards and games. We watched the NE football game downstairs, while some of us played games on the table downstairs. I took our baby gate for the door to the steps for the 10 month old, and worked great to keep her from her own adventure up or down the steps. This "cabin" is not the primitive cabin in the woods, it is a home, warm and inviting for all to enjoy! Would definitely consider this rental again.
We thoroughly enjoyed our sister's weekend at Spencer Hill! The accommodations were perfect for the 9 of us. With 3 bathrooms, plenty of space, an awesome kitchen and fireplace room we were able to totally relax. Of course, the beautiful snow falling outside helped add to the picturesque views from every room. We brought our own meals to cook and really had everything we needed provided at the house. Thanks, Linda, for all of your guidance and for the awesome music on your iPod! We highly recommend!
We found the Spencer Hill Cabin on the home away site. We wanted a central location that our 10 person family could get together for the weekend. The cabin absolutely exceeded our expectations! The pictures don’t even do it justice! It is such a beautiful place that is cozy and clean! So many wonderful features like the Bluetooth radio, fireplace, and indoor and outdoor supplies. Hands down I would recommend this place to anyone! We will definitely be back!!!

It is the perfect destination for those wanting a retreat from the hectic pace of life. We are 1 hour's drive west of downtown Omaha where the College World Series is played.
