About the property

Fabulous View Of North Tenmile, Your Own Dock, Internet, Hot Tub

Property description

Rates: Check in is 4 pm and check out is 11 am. We book through VRBO and they charge a service fee for collecting money, holding and returning damage deposits. Our basic rates are for 2 people, we charge $20-25 per person/night for over 2 people depending on the season.

If you want to connect with nature with the comforts of home this lakefront home near Lakeside is the perfect place! This stunning A-frame home is surrounded by trees and the lake, and features a private dock, an enormous deck, and even a private hot tub to ensure you fully enjoy your stay.

Lakeside is a small town located between Reedsport and North Bend, nestled among the trees a few miles east of the ocean. This particular home is right on North Tenmile Lake, in a secluded and peaceful area away from the highway, close to the nearby cities for services and supplies. From this home you can enjoy boating, fishing, watching for wildlife, and basking in the beauty of nature.

This cabin was hand built by the owner and family and was designed to be a relaxing family get- away for boating and recreation. Start a fire in the pellet stove, have a seat on the comfortable sofas, and gaze out the windows at the gorgeous surroundings.

When it gets too dark to see outside, you can flip on the satellite TV, bring along a Blu-ray, DVD, or VHS movie to watch, access the WiFi, play a provided board game, or have a friendly tournament on the ping-pong, pool or foosball tables in the downstairs game room!

Use the well-appointed, beautiful kitchen (stocked with all sorts of fun gadgets like an Keurig coffeemaker, slow cooker, blender, mixer, and even a waffle iron) to cook up a nice dinner for everyone, and sit down together to enjoy a family-style meal filled with conversation and laughter. Serve at the dining room table which seats 8 or on the deck with seating for 10.

When it's bedtime, you will have two bedrooms each with a queen bed; or the loft which has a queen and a full bed; or the game room which has a full futon, queen sofa-bed or trundle twin beds. Altogether, 12 guests will have cozy and warm places to rest up for another day of vacationing. Don’t worry; there are three full bathrooms for everyone’s comfort.

Outside, you will find 3,000 square feet of deck space where you can sit, relax, and take in the sights, sounds, and smells of nature. Even better, you will have access to a gas grill, firepit, private dock with space to moor two or three boats, and two kayaks, a paddleboat and a 12' rowboat for you to use during your visit! The trail down to the dock is a bit steep and has lots of steps (that beautiful view is about 90 vertical feet off the water) so pack an cooler and head to the dock to spend few hours enjoying the water.

With such a fabulous, secluded, lakefront location, this home is perfect for a getaway from the stress and strain of everyday life. Whether you choose to stay at this house and relax, or venture out and explore the nearby dunes, the beach, and the cities of Reedsport and North Bend, you will have an exciting variety of activities within easy reach.

Book this spectacular lakefront home now, and start looking forward to a relaxing trip surrounded by the beauty of nature!

About The Owner

Gary and I (Mary)are parents of four son's who all enjoy playing at the lake. They helped us build this house from clearing the property to moving in the furniture. They currently are in school or have jobs out of state so we are beginning the (empty nest) next part of life. We love traveling to see the kids in different parts of the country. We still love our cabin and use it lots, but hate to see it sit empty when we are gone.

The Owner purchased this house in 1999

Why The Owner chose Lakeside

We always wanted a place where our dock would be waiting for us when we wanted to go boating or skiing. Fighting for a camping spot was such a drag. Having a place waiting for us is absolute heaven. We love camping, so we made this area so it feels like a big camp area, with the trail to the lake but with a hot tub to warm up after a ski run or a spring swim. You can fish off the dock or paddle boat across the lake and float back in the afternoon when the breeze is from the west. After the sun goes down build a campfire and enjoy some toasted marshmallows. Finish the day when you slide into a comfortable bed with cozy linens. The next morning is magical as the fog lifts and reveals the lake in a different light each day. Plan a beach hike, a sand dune excursion, whale watching, deep sea fishing, a trip to the casino, or a on the dock sun bathing afternoon... the options are many, our days seem few...get out there and enjoy life.

What makes this house unique

This property is only 1.5 miles to Lakeside, so it is easy enough to go pickup supplies from the local McKay's Market or head south 13 miles into Coos Bay for a full super markets.

Many of the homes on the lake are accessible by boat only, ours is road accessible. These are coastal private roads however so be careful driving on these narrow roads.

Any time of year you can entertain yourself just looking at the water below. I love to set up a puzzle by the front window and watch the birds and water fowl below. We have osprey that fish from the lake they are hilarious to watch when they are learning. We have occasionally seen otters, deer and elk swimming across the lake.

Moor your boat less than 100 feet from where you sleep. Just put in at the Coos County Tenmile Lakes Park or the North Lake RV Resort and Marina, call ahead for parking rates for your trailer. There is boat fuel available at Sun Lake Resorts and North Lake RV Resort on north lake and Ringo's on south lake.

Beautiful House, Beautiful setting

  • 4 of 5

This review is mixed. Three of us had the flu and could not take advantage of the things the house had to offer such as the pool table/ping pong table, the foos ball, and the boats on the lake. The ones who were able to enjoy these things loved it. The kitchen is well stocked and the beds were comfortable.

The only complaint was the information book about the pellet stove was not in plain view and we had to contact the owners. We had to contact them twice for two different things and they were slow in responding.

Owner's Response: I'm so sorry you had the flu, what bad luck. Based on your feedback I have placed the directions for the pellet stove in the milk can next to the stove that holds the starter pellets and lighters. Thanks for the heads up. Always call Gary's phone first, mine is listed as secondary because when I work it is on silent. Mary

Thanksgiving with Family

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed Thanksgiving with family that we see only occasionally. It was the perfect location. The cabin was lovely and very tastefully appointed to the flavor of the area. We enjoyed every minute of our experience. I highly recommend this location. The owners were gems to work with too.

Charming,clean luxurious cabin with fantastic view.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for three nights in early October, and thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful cabin. Who cares if it’s raining? The pellet stove kept us warm and we gazed out the window at the lake. The kitchen was completely fitted out with everything you need. You’ll never be bored here because there are lots of games, a pool table, a hot tub, a fire pit, kayaks and the gorgeous lake.Although there were only two of us, thecabin cancomfortably accommodate a large family. The owners are extremely nice and helpful. Highly recommended, rain or shine.

Home Sweet Home! Fell Instantly in love!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect. From the moment we stepped out of our vehicle and saw the view, it was breathtaking. The listing description is very accurate and the property was clean and well maintained. The owners Gary & Mary were very responsive to my questions.

This was a girls fishing trip with a local guide Troy Corgain (you can find him on FB) highly recommended. Other than Salmon fishing we stayed at the cabin and cooked our own meals. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could want and more. There are a lot of spices & such available. We even put a roast in the crock pot on the way out to go fishing and dinner was ready when we got home. Yes home we felt at home as soon as we walked in the door. The decor is homey and inviting.

We fished off the dock and were catching bass, blue gill and crappie left and right. Some took out the kayaks and had a blast. No one tried the paddle boat but plan to on our next visit, we just ran out of time.

Don't hesitate to book this property and book it for as long as you can, you won't be disappointed. We are booking our trip for next year right away.

Thanks again Gary & Mary for opening up your beautiful home to us!

-Amy Tandy & friends!

Once again, my wife and I enjoyed our stay at this superb property. The bass weren't biting very well, unless you count dozens of 4" yearlings, but that didn't dampen our enjoyment of this special 'cabin.' Highly recommend to others.
