Why Lynne Haines chose Lincoln

Cruise endless miles of undeveloped shoreline on Lake Roosevelt. Gamble and dine at Two Rivers Casino. Watch a laser light show at Grand Coulee Dam. Paint, write and photograph this undiscovered area. Enjoy the plunge pool at the base of Hawk Creek Falls. Ride the 15 minute Keller ferry across the lake. Picnic and hike. Picnic and hike. Lincoln was a saw mill town that played a large role in the building of the Grand Coulee Dam. When the ninety-nine year mill lease ended the town was abandoned for many years. Lincoln Lake Cabin is an historic building built by Pat Madden who worked as the "saw filer" at the Lincoln Saw Mill. Rent jet skis and boats at 7 Bays Marina. Enjoy an authentic old time rodeo in Davenport. Lincoln Lake Cabin was built in the 1940's. We have updated it with modern conveniences without removing the ambiance of a more relaxed era. This secluded property nestles against a granite outcrop under ancient elm trees. Dappled shade, bird song and lake sounds welcome you. Settle in effortlessly. All you need is a few personal essentials and your food.

What makes this cottage unique

The cabin is homey, unpretentious, and easy to enjoy. The two resident cats love visitors. A writers retreat and artists home base, folks come here to rest and escape into the time warp that makes a weekend feel like a week. The cabin is five minutes from the boat launch. Two weeks of fun on Lake Roosevelt feels like a lifetime. Hikers and photographers never run out of places to see. Basalt cliffs above the cabin are home to birds ranging from golden eagles to tiny canyon wrens. It’s one huge aviary. Morning doves coo and swallows swoop all day long. Photographers get shots of animals large and small such as mountain goats, cougars or coyotes. Fishermen hook salmon, sturgeon, trout and walleye. Hikers have a field day. Boaters have miles of shoreline, coves and inlets to explore.

There are interesting areas within a day's round trip drive of Lincoln Lake Cabin. Seasonal fruits, vegetables available at the Davenport Farmers Market and the Whitestone Winery is close by. The Two Rivers Casino is close by: a15 minute boat ride or 30 minute drive. The history of this region is fascinating.

Notes:
Two resident cats that love visitors. If you have cat allergies you may want to re-think staying here. Unless you have good allergy medicines, being allergic to cats may pose a problem because they live here. They go in and out through a special access and have a cat feeder and automatic waterer. In short - they think they own the place.

Owner's Response: Thanks James, it was a pleasure speaking with you. We are happy you enjoyed our cabin. It was once the home of a family that lived and worked in Lincoln Saw Mill during the building of the Grand Coulee Dam. One day a woman walked into the yard at the cabin and told me she had lived there as a girl. Her story was a wonderful verbal history of a time and place, that has been "all but" erased. When the iron burner cone comes, down no one will know about the people and the saw mill that was once home to two generations of lumbermen, their wives and children.

Perfect gem - just what our family craved!

  • 4 of 5

Perfect balance of comfort and amenities. Close to all water hot spots and recreational sites. Two resident cats are keepers - my kids were huge fans of the place - definitely worth a return visit.

Very Rustic

  • 3 of 5

This rustic cabin on Lincoln Lake about 1.25 hours West of Spokane was a very relaxing location. The lack of cell phone coverage and no TV meant that we played a lot of board games with the other couple that stayed for a week at this VRBO property. We were glad that we decided not to bring our dog as the 2 cats appear magically each evening to say hello, coming up through the hole in the floor near the cookstove in the kitchen. The bed in the room near the bathroom was super comfortable and we slept like babies during our stay; our guests thought the same in their bedroom. The kitchen is well appointed, the dishwasher works well, and there are an abundance of towels for kitchen & bathroom use. We didn't find the lack of an oven a problem as we enjoyed fixing our dinners on the back yard barbeque. Lovely ceiling fans in every room are wonderful for the warm August nights, and we all agreed it was a relaxing stay. (The A/C located in the living room was more than adequate to cool down the entire cabin when we needed it.) Lynne was a helpful hostess as we needed to contact her in advance of our trip regarding not taking the dog and requesting our dog deposit returned. She makes it a great experience!

Cabin and Cool Cats

  • 4 of 5

This cabin is a gem of a property. The history of the town of Lincoln is reflected in the cabin. It has wood paneling and floors that were milled at the Lincoln wood mill at an earlier time. The cabin is spacious. There is a lot of wonderful art works around including paintings, hand painted tiles, teapot and mugs. We enjoyed the care and attention to detail that Lynne has put into this gem of a cabin. I loved the fish stencils on the doors. The cats are wonderful and extremely friendly. We have a dog, a Cairn Terrier. One morning we woke up with a cat between us and the dog at the foot of the bed. We had a good laugh. Even though there isn't an oven, I didn't miss it. We didn't miss a TV either. There is a beach close by. The backyard is wonderful and we loved being out there. The cabin was clean and well kept. We had lunch a couple of times at the Mexican restaurant El Ranchito. Very good food and service. Our nephews enjoyed the swing, rope and exploring the area around the cabin.

Nice location and a cozy stay

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our week here. The boat launch is close and the lake is beautiful. There are so many beaches to explore with clear, surprisingly warm water. It was an amazing getaway for our family of 3. The home itself has two comfortable bedrooms, but a very small bathroom which may make it a bit of a tight squeeze for 6 people. There are fans in just about all of the rooms and an air conditioning unit in the living room. As mentioned in other reviews, the microwave does heat things without a working display, there's an electric stove top, but only a charming old wood burning oven. The owner provides charcoal and a bbq. We enjoyed grilling dinner every night and eating it the backyard. It's very shady which was a nice retreat at the end of a day in the sun. The place could use a good deep cleaning for cobwebs and dust, etc, but the important things like the bathroom were clean and afterall, it is a cottage in the woods. The wifi was spotty, but that's not why you're there. =) The cats are around a lot and they are very good and friendly cats; they were never on the kitchen counters or anything. It would be nice to know their names and if we were supposed to feed them. We found some cat food, so we occassionally set some out. Another review said they called them Meow Meow and Drools and we quickly figured out which was which and used those names all week. =) The owner generously provided some basic food items and the kitchen is well stocked. There are no easy stores, so bring everthing you need. One of my favorite things was the National Geographic collection. There are thousands and it was fun to read the ads and articles from decades long ago. I need to come back to just read more. =) It would have also been nice to know what was expected of us before we left. We took all the garbage out back and washed the bedding, but there was no "Check Out" list like we've had at other rentals. We cleaned our things from the fridge, but there were a lot of others' leftover condiments etc. Overall, we had a lovely, quiet week away from everything and we plan on returning next year!

Artists and writers sequester themselves here to renew their creative connections. Families spend time getting close. Fishermen escape into the time warp that makes a weekend feel like a week. The cabin is five minutes from the boat launch. Hikers and photographers never run out of places to see. If you like to read we have the almost complete National Geographic collection from 1920. Three hammocks and chair swings make hanging out under the trees delightful. See dtails at our website www.lincolnlakecabin.com
