Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cabin in Nebraska - Spencer Hill

Luxury Quiet Retreat Near Lake Wanahoo

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. The deck is accessible from the great room and master bedroom and is equipped with a Weber stainless steel gas grill and has dining capacity for 6-10.

The cozy loft features knotty pine ceilings and is furnished with a king size bed. The loft has a full bath, 2 built-in bunks (1 is child size), a small deck for enjoying your morning coffee and a small hideout for the kids.

The lower level has more large windows with views of the lake, a bedroom with 2 sets of bunk beds, a full bath and a flat screen television with a DVD player and DIRECTV. There is also a full size sofa sleeper for extra guests. The walkout is to a patio equipped with a Weber charcoal grill and has dining capacity for 6. There is a fire pit adjacent to the patio with firewood and skewers for roasting marshmallows provided.

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.

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.

Perfect luxury cabin for my wedding weekend!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Cabin Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Janet, We love hearing how families enjoy time at Spencer Hill playing games and making memories, as this is exactly why we built the 'cabin'! :-) We hope you will find many more memory making activities when you come back in July for the wedding, as late night stories in the tepee and the summer night skies are amazing! Happy holidays to you and your family, Rick & Linda

Fabulous Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

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!

One of the best places I have ever stayed!!

  • 5 of 5

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!!!

Wonderful stay for family get-together

  • 5 of 5

The Spencer Hill Cabin is a beautiful place to stay. It has many details which add to the experience (soaps, paper towels, Bluetooth radio, kitchen supplies) and the owners do a great job keeping up the property! The gas grill was out of propane, but there was also a charcoal grill with supplies on the downstairs patio.

The fireplace upstairs and TV downstairs really made it a great family environment. There were so many tables and chairs, that activities and meals were easy. There was some road construction, but the town is very close by, with a grocery store and Pizza Hut, etc. We didn't attempt the lake, but it is within walking distance on a trail from the cabin. Overall, we are very serious about staying there again! Thank you to the owner's for such a nice place!

Owner's Response: Megan, We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Spencer Hill. Your experience with the gas grill tells me we need to post the lighting instructions at the grill, as it can be difficult to light if the burners aren't turned on in the right sequence. We hope you will come back another time! Thanks, Rick & Linda

"Family Time"

  • 5 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!
