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 Ashland

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 Escape!

  • 5 of 5

We came to unplug and enjoy each others company without distractions... This cabin has the perfect mix of rustic charm along with updated amenities making it a comfortable cozy get-away. Upon our arrival we were lucky enough to be greeted by the first snow of the season which only added to the ambience we were searching for. I am super picky and would highly recommend this property!

Owner's Response: I was so worried that the snow would be a deterrent. I too have experienced the first snow numerous times at the cabins. Its always a welcome site . Fire season is over yeah. Time for fun in the snow. We feel very fortunate to have one of the first cabins built in Oregon. We had a fabulous time restoring it. We did our best to leave all the hand hewed beams , siding etc., while making sure it was cozy and comfortable as you pointed out. Thanks hope to see you again. Randy

No lake anywhere near the cabin

  • 1 of 5

The cabin itself was cute, but there lake like the ad said. If that was the case I should have been told NO LAKE. There was a field with tall weeds and a little cabin right on the road. Literally nothing to do there unless you left, and town was a long way from the cabin.. So we stayed 1 night and left 1st thing in the morning. We came from CA and we're looking so forward to this cabin. Wish I could have something more positive to say.

Outstanding Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the cabin. I like that they've kept the original rustic character intact, yet quite comfortable. My buddy and I ended up meeting here for some acoustic music jams - liked it so much we recorded a few tunes. Green Springs restaurant is just down the road, and offers great food and drink. We would definitely come back!

Owner's Response: Thanks for sending me the picture of the cabin with you too standing on the porch , it will look great on the album cover. The tunes you wrote were awesome thanks for sending those as well. It is a very inserational spot. Lots of good energy no doubt. Iam reading a book that has a whole chapter written on living at the Barron cabin during the depression ,the first one . It describes a time in our history where being at the cabin was sacred compared to living the valley during those times. It still has that same felling as you experienced , sacred. Thanks Randy

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.

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.

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.
