Willamette Wine Country Retreat: 'The Lake House' Carlton Area

Bedrooms 3
Half Baths1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths picturesque serene setting.

The Lake House

Nestled in its own world, the Lake House rests within Yamhill County's magnificent wine country. It is the perfect get-a-way retreat.

There are no words or pictures that can adequately describe the serene environment. With 3.5 acres of playing ground, a small lake, three large bedrooms, two full baths and two half baths, it can house up to three couples.

If you long for a bit of activity in between bouts of relaxation, the Lake House is located fifteen minutes from Carlton's wine tasting 'district' and fabulous eateries. The tasting rooms in Carlton provide an exceptional experience from those who prefer sweet whites to Oregon's sought after Pinot Noirs to the rich dark reds produced from the grapes of Southern Oregon. It's all there.

The house is fully furnished and includes a well equipped kitchen. All you need to do is the grocery shopping. Whether it's this weekend or any other vacation you are planning, I hope you consider The Lake House for its ideal location in Oregon's rural Yamhill County.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is truly a beautiful spot and a home that has been well-maintained. Our family enjoyed this place! As many other have noted, it is the perfect retreat after a big day of wine tasting. We would love to come back during summer to enjoy the outdoor patio. Thank you for the hospitality.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were there with 4 of our friends for a weekend stay. The house is a gem. Quiet, peaceful and beautiful. Great location. Very secluded but within 15-30 mins drive to some great wineries. Close enough to Newburg as well. The house was clean, well stocked with kitchen equipment and utensils (there was no coffee though, so make sure to buy some.. they have a grinder). The rooms were all great, with one of them slightly smaller than the other two, but it is no big deal. There is a grill for use, and the bull frogs will give you company in the evening. Just be safe from the yellow jackets. Loni was a great host and very responsive. Over all, we loved our stay!!

Magical retreat

  • 5 of 5

The most amazing setting with the beautiful pond and charming home. My husband and I stayed for a long weekend - needing a place to relax and unwind. We could not have hoped for better. The home is lovely and decorated just perfectly - cozy and clean. We did a little wine tasting in the area and then just enjoyed a glass of wine on the deck and listened to the chorus of bullfrogs in the evening. The kitchen is perfectly equipped to make a lovely breakfast and simple dinner. This is a hidden gem.

Frogs galore!

  • 4 of 5

Quaint house on a small lake. Quite isolated, nice furnishings, complete kitchen. Good instructions. Had a problem with the water pump, as we lost water pressure the last night, so there was no water available on our last morning.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review and the understanding about the well. It seems it shut down as a precaution because of a leak. All is well now. We of course will reimburse you for the night! Sincerely, Loni

Picturesque and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The "Lake house" is truly a special place. The lovely house is nestled in the Oregon scenic countryside outside of Yamhill. The house sits on a small picturesque lake/pond. You really feel like you have stepped into some alternate reality - since the home feels so remote, situated down a long. winding, tree-lined, graveled road. All we could hear were the bull grogs in the lake and wind rustling through the trees. The home is nicely decorated with all the amenities you could need - very comfortable for 4 to 6 people. We will be back!!

Charming Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend at this beautiful lakeside home. Tucked away off the beaten path, it was easy to get to all the local wineries and escape the busy town crowds. Evening wine and cheese was enjoyed on the patio overlooking the lake before settling into an incredibly comfy bed for the night. Can't wait to come back!
