Brannholm is a 1973 Scandinavian modern lodge featuring cedar walls, knotty pine ceilings, and windows along the south and west sides of the home, providing lake views from nearly every room.

At 3200 square feet on .6 acre, the home is double the size of most three bedroom homes in Lincoln City.
The great room is around 1000 square feet, with an open floorplan centered on a modern rock fireplace. One side has leather reclining seating and a large HD TV, so you can all watch the game or enjoy the lake view. The upper deck allows you to watch the sunset inside or ouThe other side has lakeview dining for the whole family. The dining area flows into a double galley kitchen, featuring a gas cooktop and indoor grill, with space for the whole family to cook together.

Use the dock and patio for your boat, to fish, or to launch your canoe; a swim ladder makes lake access easy. We provide 2 sit on top kayaks, some fishing gear, and life vests. There is a fenced dog run where your dogs can play, and an upper lawn where you can throw a football, or set up volleyball or croquet. Extra outdoor seating in the dog run, and on our detached upper deck. Secure storage is available in the shop for your bikes or other gear. A public boat launch is less than a mile away.
Brannholm is close to the beaches of Lincoln city, on the less populated East Side of the lake. Devils lake is much warmer than the Pacific, and is popular for swimming, canoeing/kayaking/SUP, boating, fishing, waterskiing, wakeboarding and wave running. The lake effect gives us sun even when the beach or the valley is fogged in!
Birds abound here in all seasons. In summer, you'll see hummingbirds, osprey, swallows, egrets, herons, kingfishers, and other water birds. In winter, there are eagles, owls, blackbirds, mergansers, grebes and ducks. Rare visitors may make an appearance, such as pileated woodpecker, or the northern spotted owl.
Immediately uphill from Brannholm is the Siuslaw National Forest, home to all kinds of wildlife, mushrooms and berries. Deer, owls, black bear, cougar, and coyotes may venture down the mountain. Old logging roads there are great for mountain biking or a walk in the woods.
There is private parking here for 4-6 cars in our turnaround and garage. Public transit for Lincoln county is about 2 miles away. There are 2 steps to enter the home, and the main level has all of the common space and the 'guest' bedroom.
Need to host a crowd of 24 people, or have separate mens and womens facilities for a retreat? Contact us--we can facilitate booking Brannholm AND our neighbor's rental to house up to 24 people in adjacent houses. Please ask about events as a separate contract is required.
John and Heather grew up in Idaho and have lived in Oregon since 2002. We are always amazed at the beauty and riches of nature Oregon has to offer.
John purchased this house in 2013
We selected Devils lake because it has all the benefits of the Oregon Coast with a warmer, sunnier, lakefront space for play. This home is so close to the water, you'll see lake from nearly every room. The great room is so spacious it is hard to capture in pictures. 12 guests can stay without feeling crowded--the whole family can be together, or you can retreat to many different areas.
It doesn't get closer to the water! Our home was custom built in 1973, designed to maximize beautiful views of water from nearly every room. The home was newly decorated in 2013, with an eye to preserving the home's vintage charm and architecture. The dock and lake access allow swimming, paddling, boating, or simply play. Birds abound here, and your dogs can take a dip in the lake or exercise in our large, shady dog run. The kitchen has space for multiple cooks, and the whole family can sit down and eat together. High quality mattresses, linens, and seating are found throughout the home.
Our family rented this home for the Christmas holiday. This house has everything you'd want in a vacation home and more. The views out the huge windows are amazing from sunrise to sunset. When you walk in the first time the view will take your breath away. Spacious living & dining area with plenty of seating & perfect for entertaining. Plenty of room in the kitchen for multiple cooks plus lots of spices & condiments & cooking utensils for the variety of meals we prepared. Beds were incredibly comfortable with plenty of linens, bedding, towels & toiletries. The house was large enough to enjoy quiet time also. Our only regret was not getting to stay longer....We will definitely want to rent this home again.
We had a great time at this house. The huge lake facing windows give a spectacular view of the lake all day long but are really great for watching the sunset. The house itself is nice with a spacious great room so all of our family and friends could hang out together. It's location is awesome, on the lake and minutes to the beach and shops. There are plenty of good surf spots both north and south on HWY 101. And the crabbing/fishing spots are close too! Over all there were so many activities to chose from we wish we had more time. We would definitely recommend this house and hope to stay there again.
Our family had a wonderful reunion this summer in the Brannholm home. Accommodations were wonderful and it was especially nice having some of our family stay in a rental right next door where we could share meals and later smores at the fire pit right on the lake. We would definitely rent this home again.
We so enjoyed our family vacation at the lake house. I loved the wood and high ceilings and fan. The lake provided fun entertainment for our niece, exploration opportunities with our canoe and great views. The kitchen was open, roomy and well stocked and made cooking fun and easy and the grill was also appreciated. Beds were comfortable and the layout of the house afforded plenty of space for adults, kids and babies and Katie, our Yorkie to hang out, visit, read, play games or explore outside. The instructions and suggestions were very helpful.Thank you! and we would definitely come again.
Our 9 family members and pup enjoyed beautiful weather, good ocean fishing, shopping and relaxing times at the very comfortable and well equiped Brannholm.
