Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cabin in Wahoo - 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 is situated on the property and is a great place for telling stories to the little ones in the dark!

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 SONOS adapter and can be heard throughout the cabin and outdoors via built in speakers. An Apple Nano loaded with various playlists is also 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.

Due to parking and bathroom restrictions we limit events to 30 people or less.

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 IN ALL WAYS!

  • 5 of 5

Had my daughters 9th birthday there with a few of her friends. Things couldn't of been more perfect. The house was beautiful and the view was just as beautiful. We hopefully plan on another stay next year if possible it was not far from where we live but felt like we were a thousand miles from the hustle and bustle.

Beautiful, relaxing, everything we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful cabin for a girls trip and we had a wonderful time!! The cabin is just as pictured, if not more beautiful, and the views were great. Wahoo was close by for quick grocery store, gas, and ice cream runs; Omaha was close enough to not be inconvenient. The beds were all wonderfully comfortable, the owners provided tons of great info, and everything was great! Would definitely come back, and would highly recommend.

This home is perfect for family gatherings and this was our 2nd time!!! We enjoyed great cookouts and shared many stories.

Ages 94 - 5 yrs old....all enjoyed and sleeping arrangements are great.

Kids loved running in the yard and taking the pathway to the new playground. Grounds are so well kept.

Fun place to visit!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Patti, for taking the time to provide us with some feedback. It was great to hear that your mother was able to join you from the nursing facility nearby! We're glad to hear your grandkids enjoyed the playground as much as ours did. We think it's a fantastic addition to Lake Wanahoo! Thanks for coming to stay with us again! We hope you'll be back!

Magnificent!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked in, we were in love! Such a beautiful home, expertly decorated, super comfortable, close to the lake, and large grounds. A definite must if you are in the Omaha or Lincoln area and you have time to spend in the country. The whole family really enjoyed everything about the house, kayaking, and s'mores by the fire. It doesn't get any better than this!

Luxury cabin offers tranquility & awesome lake views! the description says it all. Our group of 7 adults and 3 children truly enjoyed our stay. Loved the decor, the availability of board games, outdoor games including fishing rods and kayaks. If we're ever in the Omaha area again we would gladly go this home again.
