About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 7)

This charming rustic cabin is nestled in a beautiful meadow on the shores of Hyatt Lake, a half hour drive from Ashland. Enjoy the views of the lake and nearby mountains while relaxing with family or friends. Perfect for a cozy and romantic weekend where the warmth of a fire and the sound of the coyotes in the distance create memories that last a lifetime. Hiking trails, including the Pacific Crest trail, are minutes away.

A canoe allows for the intimate exploration of Hyatt Lake where diving Osprey, soaring eagles, pelicans, wild geese and other wildlife are almost always in view. Record trout and bass bring fisherman from miles around. Winters on Hyatt Lake are magical. Awake to the sun glistening off the snow. Snowshoeing, cross country skiing and Snow Angles can all be a part of your winter stay at Hyatt Lake, the perfect location for a winter holiday.

Named the “Barron Cabin” as it’s located on the site of the original cabin owned by the Barron family and built with many of the original, hand hewn timbers. Step back in time when life was simple and the warmth of a fire, a hot meal and a warm bed in the middle of a natural environment provided pleasures often missed in today’s world.

About The Owner

I was born in Ashland and have been coming to Hyatt Lake from the age of 2. Guests are always asking what its like? My replay is that its like going to the middle of Idaho and yet its only a 30 min drive from Ashland. The Barron cabin as we refer to it , was built in the late 1800s by Major Hugh Barron. He came to Oregon after the Civil War by covered wagon . He found the Hyatt Lake meadow , now a lake while exploring the area from the wagon train which had set camp at the top of Tyler creek . I felt it my duty to preserve this cabin because of its rich heritage. Being a carpenter of 30 years I was amazed at the mortice tenon construction, hand peeled logs and the attention to detail given no electricity to run tools. The outside is rough and left they way intensionally for its character. The inside however is completely rebuilt, keeping as much of the original charm as possible with having all of the latest convinces. It was a labor of love.

Why The Owner chose Southern Oregon

So that others could enjoy the area and a piece of the past.

What makes this cabin unique

Close route to Crater Lake the back way, fishing , hunting, bike riding , sledding , cross country skiing , snow shoeing, hiking, and just simply relaxing.

Great winter vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Cabin was great! We wanted to spend New Year's away from the city and take the family to the snow. We drove up after work and arrived at night to a wonderful snow covered cabin. Exactly what we were looking for. The directions were easy to follow, and the cabin was easy to find. The cabin porch light was on and the inside was warm and cozy. The cabin met our desires as being a cozy rustic cabin in the snow. Plenty of firewood to keep the fire going and cozy. Table Mountain Snow park was within a mile which had a large and small sledding hill and warming cabin. Cabin may look small but was plenty of room with the two bedrooms and loft to sleep all 7 of us. Thank you for sharing your cabin!!

Owner's Response: We are very appreciative of your remarks and hope that other potential guests will find the cabin as warm and comfortable as you did. It does appear rustic in the photos because we did not want to take away from its charm. When we completely remodeled we were looking for is a step back in time. Leaving the hand hewed beams, blacksmith stripes and logs exposed let the work of the 1890s carpentry stand out yet with all the modern convinces of micro wave, dishwasher and full kitchen etc. Thanks again look forward to your return. Randy

Thanksgiving in a Snowglobe

  • 5 of 5

My family spent a magical Thanksgiving at Barron cabin. For 3 days and 4 nights we were unplugged from electronics and spent our time cooking & baking, knitting & crocheting, reading, watching DVDs, listening to music, and catching up with our college-age daughter. We were all so content we didn't venture out until our last day and then had a wonderful time exploring the boutiques and cafes of Ashland - so close, and yet a world away. The whole experience was made-to-order for us. The cabin has been so thoughtfully restored and optimally designed with every need attended to. Even Mother Nature cooperated and sent 8 inches of powdery snow for us to wake up to on our last morning. We are so grateful to have had such a perfect holiday.

Wonderful escape

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Barron cabin for two nights and wished we could stay longer. The views of the lake, the location, and the cabin were perfect. The cabin is very nice inside and had everything we needed for our stay. We were able to have lunch outside during the day and enjoyed the fireplace by night. The beds were comfortable and everything was perfect. We hope to come back to enjoy the winter time as we enjoyed the fall trip so much. If you love nature, seeing the Milky Way, and a cabin with all the amenities, we highly recommend this place. Our daughter even left behind a very special stuffed animal and Randy was kind enough to offer to mail it back to us. Can't recommend this place enough! (We also recommend trying a meal at the Green Springs Inn. Wonderful dinner menu and great desserts.)

Owner's Response: So glade your stay was all you had hoped. This cabin is a very special place . So much history . In 1864 if you had any place in southern Oregon to choose from to homestead and you picked this place it says a lot about its location.

Three days at Baron Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My son and I throughly enjoyed the morning sunrises, evening moon rises and the large river rock fireplace which we used every night. We found the cabin fully equipped and all amenities worked very well. We based at the cabin and fished each day at Hyatt lake and Howard Prairie lake. The bbq and back porch were perfect for our steaks and the

12 fish caught over the three days that we spent in the mountains. We recommend stopping at Green Springs restaurant for a home made pie to add to the evening porch sitting. Quiet wonderful time.

great little cabin with a view

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful cabin and setting. The outside appearance does no justice to how nice the inside of the cabin is. Easy to find and accessible. Was exactly as described and fully furnished including a full kitchen with stove oven fridge and even a dishwasher. Only downside is that it sleeps 7 but only has seating for 5 in the living room so a couple folks have to sit on dining room chairs. The host was wonderful and stayed in contact with us through the whole experience

Owner's Response: When we completely remodeled it was a hard decision not to reside but we also wanted to keep the original feeling of a cabin built in 1890 . This is one of the first cabins built in the Rouge Valley by one of the first settlers Major Hugh Barron . We left all the hand hewed beams , blacksmith stamps and post and beam construction exposed . We would like more seats in the living room but when you add a Christmas tree as we always do it takes away some of the space for seating. .We normally have a couple of kids in the mix and they squeeze into the couch or two recliners with the adults. Thanks for the kind review hope to have you back . With 3 ft of snow on the ground while you were there you should come and experience the area in the summer.

Relaxing weekend at cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four, including two teenage girls, spent a happy and relaxing weekend at this cozy cabin. It is less rustic than I expected from the description, with an updated kitchen and satellite TV (which I am happy to say we did not use!). The comfy leather couch and recliners were a perfect place to sit and read with the morning sun pouring in the windows before it warmed up enough to move outside to the porch or the garden. During the days, we hiked a stretch of the Pacific Crest Trail and visited Crater Lake, a beautiful 1.5 hour drive to the north. In the evenings, we drove down the hill to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, a bit of a slog but well worth it on both ends. Back at the cabin, the night sky was breathtaking. Thanks also to Randy for his helpfulness in getting my daughter's bassoon back to us when we overlooked it during our last-minute packing up.

Owner's Response: We did our best to keep the cabin as original as possible with all of today's comforts in its rebuild. The cabin was built by Major Hugh Barron in the late 1800s. He and his wife, and their new baby traveled west after the Civil war, finding Hyatt prairie, they decided this is where they would settle. The prairie is now Hyatt Lake and the remains of the original cabin built in 1864 are next door. The Barron's were one of the first of four families to settle the Rogue Valley. The family ended up with 9 kids and one of the biggest ranches with over 10,000 head of livestock. The cabin became a summer home after Major Barron opened the first stage coach stop just south of Ashland. I thought a bit of the cabins history would be of interest to potential guests.

Ashland's Shakespeare is one of the biggest attractions in the area. Ashland is also renowned for it great restaurants and night life. The drive to Crater lake from the cabin is one of the best scenic drives in Oregon. From the cabin there is a back way into the park that takes you by Klamath lake on lake shore drive. Stop at the Rockie Point resort on the way for a great meal any time of day. You will dine while watching thousand of birds through their glassed in dinning area. Captain Jackes monument is on the way just before entering Fort Klamath. Well worth the stop. Lots of historical information on the Modoc Indians. If you looking to rent a boat , go sailing or just enjoy a root bear float head to Howard Prairie resort just 3 miles away. A float down the Rogue River is always a great way to spend an afternoon. Shady Cove has lots of rentals and they shuttle.
