Omaha cabin description

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. There is dining capacity for 12 on the main floor with additional seating for 6-8 on the lower level. Outdoor dining capacity on the deck and lower level patio is 15-20 and up to 50 with the use of a tent. (Tent is an additional cost).

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!

Guests will have full access to the cabin which includes a fully equipped kitchen, a great room with amazing views of the lake and a gas fireplace, a master bedroom with a queen size log bed with luxury linens and adjoining deck with a stainless steel gas grill. The cozy loft with knotty pine ceilings has a king-size bed, a full bath, 2 built-in bunks and a deck to enjoy your morning coffee. The lower level has more large windows with views of the lake, a bedroom with 2 full sets of bunk beds, a full size bath and a family room equipped with HD TV, a DVD player and DIRECTV. There is a queen sofa sleeper in the family room for extra guests. The walkout is to a patio with seating for 6 equipped with a charcoal grill.

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 that sleeps 4 is available for those interested in roughing it!

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.

An IPOD docking station and Blutooth receiver is connected to the stereo for those who wish to bring their own music.

                  The new luxury cabin is located on Spencer Hill, a secluded treed acreage conveniently located just 30 minutes from Omaha or Lincoln and footsteps away from beautiful Lake Wanahoo. It is the perfect destination for

                  those wanting a retreat from the hectic pace of life.

                   

                  Owner info

                  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.
