Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: 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
Why the Owner Chose Omaha: 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.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: 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.
