This splendid retreat is ideal for couples, families, business or social gatherings or anyone wanting to get away from the hectic pace of life.

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.

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.

Owner's Response: Sandra,
We're glad you and your family enjoyed your stay at Spencer Hill. Our grandkids also love to run, run, run outdoors in the big grassy area, so we're happy to hear your kids liked it too! We hope you'll come stay with us again.
Kind regards,

A HIDDEN GEM!

  • 5 out of 5
This beautiful vacation home was a perfect choice for our family get-away! Located a short drive from the cities of Omaha and Lincoln, it was wonderful to drive from a busy city into the beauty and quiet of rural Nebraska. A short 20-30 minute drive took us past corn and soybean fields to this "home away from home".
One day our family visited Lincoln and toured the UNL Cornhusker football stadium and UNL's Lester F. Larsen Tractor Test and Power Museum. The next day we went to Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo. We discovered there are so many things to do in both Lincoln and Omaha, I'm sure we'll be back!
Each evening we returned to prepare a meal and eat together, either on the deck outside or around the large dining room table. The owners have furnished the kitchen with everything a family needs to prepare and serve a meal. There is a huge gas grill that can accommodate cooking for a large crowd. We loved having a bon fire in the evening and making S'mores!
Each room of the home is decorated beautifully. The beds/bedding are ultra comfortable! Our grandchildren, ages 2 and 4 loved the sleeping nooks built into the Master bedroom. There's even a surprise play area tucked away for the small children! It's evident the owners have grandchildren as the whole home and property is very family-friendly.
I appreciate how easy it was to communicate with Linda. I also appreciated finding a property that did not require a week-long reservation, as we only could find a few days to get away that worked for everyone in the family.
The weather was stormy when we left our home in SD en route to Lake Wanahoo. Linda and her husband checked weather radar for us and advised what route to take. I'd say that is personalized service!
This vacation property would also work if you have a larger group of friends or family and some would like to stay in their RV. Some of the group could stay in the vacation home, and the 'Campers' could reserve a site at the State Park, (which is a very short walk from the home).
Our experience with this vacation home was outstanding. I am sure we will return!

LUXURY IS DEFINITELY THE WORD!

  • 5 out of 5
I hosted my sister's bachelorette party at this GORGEOUS cabin, picures don't even do this place justice, it's a must see in real life! So spacious and the decor is amazing inside and out! Myself and the rest of the party are all wanting to come back at some point with all of our own families! Great place/Great time! Thanks again! :D

GREAT SPOT FOR FAMILY TIME!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I stayed here with our three children, ages 8, 6 and 3. We had a fantastic time enjoying the cabin, Lake Wanahoo and the town of Wahoo! The cabin is luxuriously appointed and amazingly comfortable. We spent one morning riding our bikes around the lake and enjoying the quiet, beautiful scenery. The town of Wahoo is incredibly family-friendly. We had a blast at the Wahoo Aquatic Center, which features a zero-depth entry and playset for small children and two diving boards, a waterslide and a fun 'leappad' feature for older kids. Our kids had so much fun in the afternoon, we came back that night for more. We happened upon a bike safety event that was being held at the park, and we walked away with free bike helmets, food, and drink!
Thanks for a great stay! We will definitely be back!

We're glad to hear of all the fun your family had at the cabin and the nearby watermark in Wahoo. We hope you will come back again soon. Our hope is that the swimming beach at Lake Wanahoo will be open next year. Have a great rest of the summer!

SHIRLEY AND FAMILY FROM ABERDEEN SD

  • 5 out of 5
We only spent 3 nights there. Wish it could have been a lot more. So much green grass to play ball with our 6 and 3 year old grandchildren. Plenty of room around the table for our meals. Plenty of room everywhere. Sat out on the deck having cocktails and listening to music piped in out there. It was the perfect perfect perfect place to stay! Upstairs is a king size bed with two built in bunkbeds. The grandkids thought they were the neatest beds ever!! So we all had to lay on them and check them out! So comfortable!!! Would love to go back someday!

Owner's Response: Shirley,
We really appreciate your nice comments, especially knowing that you are an experienced VRBO owner yourself! We're glad to know that everyone enjoyed themselves and that the kids enjoyed all of the outdoor space for running! We were both envious when we heard about the Eagle sighting so close to the master bedroom window and can't help but wonder if it was one of this year's hatchings. We hope you'll come back another time.
Happy Summer!
