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. There is dining capacity for 12 on the main floor with additional seating for 6-8 on the lower level. Outdoor dining capacity on the deck and lower level patio is 15-20 and up to 50 with the use of a tent. (Tent is an additional cost).

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!

Guests will have full access to the cabin which includes a fully equipped kitchen, a great room with amazing views of the lake and a gas fireplace, a master bedroom with a queen size log bed with luxury linens and adjoining deck with a stainless steel gas grill. The cozy loft with knotty pine ceilings has a king-size bed, a full bath, 2 built-in bunks and a deck to enjoy your morning coffee.

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 for those interested in roughing it!

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.

About Linda

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

Why Linda chose Nebraska

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.

What makes this cabin unique

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.

"Family Time"

"Family Time"
  • 5 out of 5
We were looking for an end of summer getaway for our entire family to have a chance to relax and enjoy some family time together. Your property truly exceeded our expectations. The property is quiet, well maintained and so serene. The windows provide stunning views of the sunrise in the mornings and each day we were lucky to see the bald eagle soaring over the lake. No amenity was overlooked, including a new toothbrush in the drawer for the daughter who forgot hers, and even marshmallow sticks to roast smores by the campfire! Lots of games are provided for a little family competition, and a great TV in the family room for the Husker game! Even though the weather was cold this week-end, we tried our luck at fishing, and the grandson was lucky enough to catch a couple bass! Linda was great to work with and answered all my concerns. We had a wonderful time and will definitely try to book this fabulous getaway next year! Thank you for sharing this little piece of paradise!

Great spot for a relaxing weekend

  • 5 out of 5
We loved this lakeside cabin! The home is beautiful and very well maintained. The grounds are spacious and quiet. Lots of room for the kids to run and a nice fire pit for evenings by the fire making s'mores.
This place is very relaxing and comfortable. If you like to fish, you have access to a great fishing lake in Lake Wanahoo.

90th Birthday Party

  • 5 out of 5
This property is situated on peaceful Lake Wanahoo in Wahoo, NE. There are 3 levels to the house for the accommodations of 12 people. The décor is absolutely beautiful in the home complimented by a spacious outdoor area for kickball, etc. The owners provide so much more than what the write up is in the VRBO and they are wonderful to work with.
We will definitely use this property again.

Lake Wanahoo gem

  • 5 out of 5
This is a special place. The design and furnishing of the home show great attention to detail. Everything is first class. Because of the setting, one is able to enjoy nature including beautiful sunrises and sunsets. We also saw many types of birds during our stay including eagles. Our family (son-in-law, daughters, grandchildren) enjoyed the setting as well as hiking around and kayaking on Lake Wanahoo. The kayaks come with the rental and were an unexpected bonus. We wish we had had more time to explore the lake with the kayaks. The large and beautifully maintained yard was especially inviting to children (and youthful adults) for running and playing games. We feel fortunate to have discovered this warm and inviting place. We intend to return.

Owner's Response: Gary,
We're happy to hear that your family enjoyed Spencer Hill and the beautiful surroundings Mother Nature adds to the mix! It sounds like our families are made from the same mold (smile), as our grandkids love playing kick ball and running around catching lightning bugs on the large open grassy area. We feel very fortunate to have this place to share with others. Thank you for your nice comments.

Family Get Away

  • 5 out of 5
Our stay at the Spencer Hill Cabin was wonderful. The property was very clean and well maintained. Everything we needed was at our fingertips. It was wonderful to see the children running and playing in the yard. There were balls and toys at the cabin. The kids wanted to be outside playing. Our electronics and cell phones were history!
The cabin is a short drive from Lincoln and Omaha. We were able to go to Lincoln for a night out and return to the tranquil retreat in the evening.
We loved our stay at Spencer Hill and we would recommend this cabin to other who want a family get a way.
