Property description

Live with the eagles
Classic “modern cabin” on yellow lake

This is a charming classic 1950’s cabin with the modern conveniences added. The single bathroom with toilet, sink & shower is shared by the two bedrooms, each with double bed. A hide-a-bed couch in the living room will accommodate one adult or two youngsters. Kitchen has refrigerator, stove & microwave.

Large wooded lot with heavily wooded buffer zone on both sides of property. You won’t see or hear the neighbors unless you make the effort to visit them.

Nicely decorated with antiques to complete the charm of those simpler times.

You can expect to see bald eagles frequently throughout the day, up close and personal, as well as the large pileated woodpeckers. Smaller birds are also in abundance, and occasional visits from deer, wild turkeys, grouse, fox, & rabbits.

A large home is also on the property. It is available for rent separately (VRBO #307131) or in combination with the cabin. A screened gazebo overlooking the lake sits between the two.

Bald eagles had a nest here for 12 years. In 2011, the nest went down in a storm, but the eagles still hang out here every day. That gives you a clue about the privacy and tranquility of this idyllic spot. As you relax on the front deck, the eagles will come and go from their favorite tree between you and the lake.

A gently sloping path leads down to the lake between majestic pine trees. (Accessible by golf cart if you have mobility problems).

Dock, rowboat, canoe, paddle-boat & 2 kayaks are included at no extra charge. 20' pontoon boat ($450/wk) or 14' aluminum boat w 9.9hp motor ($150/wk) available for rent. New for 2015 are an electric motorized kayak ($150/wk) and a kids electric motorized "fun boat" with water cannon ($150/wk).

The cabin is non-smoking inside for the comfort of our guests. Strictly no fireworks because they frighten the eagles & foxes that live here. No pets. We don’t want the eagles or foxes to frighten Fido, or vice-versa.

There is a picnic table, a gas grill and a firepit just outside the cabin and a second firepit next to the dock. Local firewood is provided. No need to purchase or transport wood.

Our American guests have hailed from New York to Florida, California to Oregon, Brazil to Alaska. Others have come from England, France, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Spain & Japan. We do our best to make your visit enjoyable. Our expanding list of repeat customers is a good omen.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Your host is a wildlife photographer who speaks reasonably good English, French, Spanish and some slightly rusty German. Currently working on a documentary film about bald eagles for public television.

Why the Owner Chose Webster:
We bought this property because of its unique private atmosphere and the active eagle nest in the middle of the yard. There is a magical quality about this property that seems like you are in your own little world.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Privacy, Privacy, Privacy. Direct access to the largest lake in the area, with great fishing. Eagle watching any day of the year. Other birds & wildlife also live in our woods. In June 2012 a baby fox was visiting the cabin daily and timidly coming within 15 feet of the guests! It sat and watched me curiously as I did yard work. When I talked softly, it approached closer. How cool is that!
