Why Lynne Haines chose Lincoln
Cruise endless miles of undeveloped shoreline on Lake Roosevelt. Gamble and dine at Two Rivers Casino. Watch a laser light show at Grand Coulee Dam. Paint, write and photograph this undiscovered area. Enjoy the plunge pool at the base of Hawk Creek Falls. Ride the 15 minute Keller ferry across the lake. Picnic and hike. Picnic and hike. Lincoln was a saw mill town that played a large role in the building of the Grand Coulee Dam. When the ninety-nine year mill lease ended the town was abandoned for many years. Lincoln Lake Cabin is an historic building built by Pat Madden who worked as the "saw filer" at the Lincoln Saw Mill. Rent jet skis and boats at 7 Bays Marina. Enjoy an authentic old time rodeo in Davenport. Lincoln Lake Cabin was built in the 1940's. We have updated it with modern conveniences without removing the ambiance of a more relaxed era. This secluded property nestles against a granite outcrop under ancient elm trees. Dappled shade, bird song and lake sounds welcome you. Settle in effortlessly. All you need is a few personal essentials and your food.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cabin is homey, unpretentious, and easy to enjoy. The two resident cats love visitors. A writers retreat and artists home base, folks come here to rest and escape into the time warp that makes a weekend feel like a week. The cabin is five minutes from the boat launch. Two weeks of fun on Lake Roosevelt feels like a lifetime. Hikers and photographers never run out of places to see. Basalt cliffs above the cabin are home to birds ranging from golden eagles to tiny canyon wrens. It’s one huge aviary. Morning doves coo and swallows swoop all day long. Photographers get shots of animals large and small such as mountain goats, cougars or coyotes. Fishermen hook salmon, sturgeon, trout and walleye. Hikers have a field day. Boaters have miles of shoreline, coves and inlets to explore. There are interesting areas within a day's round trip drive of Lincoln Lake Cabin. Seasonal fruits, vegetables available at the Davenport Farmers Market and the Whitestone Winery is close by. The Two Rivers Casino is close by: a15 minute boat ride or 30 minute drive. The history of this region is fascinating.

Spring fishing trip.
My son and I came to fish for Lake Roosevelt rainbow trout and were not disappointed. We fished from shore here in Lincoln, Hanson Harbor, and Keller's Ferry and had success at all three locations with beautiful fish to 21". The cottage was the perfect base camp, very comfortable and generously stocked. The private lot and spine of granite that goes thru the yard make for a comfortable and protected retreat. We enjoy cats and the two here are great characters and athletes. Up the 25 foot granite in the back in about three bounds. They were great company. The view of the lake and tremendous basalt cliffs are beautiful and interesting. Look for nesting birds on the cliff faces.
This would be a fine base for hunters as well. We saw Mule and White tail deer, countless groups of wild turkey and Quail and lots of waterfowl up on the Agriculture platau. The wildlife highlight for me was the herd of 20 to 30 Big horn sheep that had come down from the cliffs and were just across the road from the gate. I have never seen them this close. I think maybe the electrical storm that blew over the cliffs that day may have brought them down.
The owner is friendly and helpful. Our five nights here were great, we highly recommend the Lincoln hill cottage and we will be back.
Thanks again Lynne!

Perfect gem - just what our family craved!
Perfect balance of comfort and amenities. Close to all water hot spots and recreational sites. Two resident cats are keepers - my kids were huge fans of the place - definitely worth a return visit.
Thanks Ladies, you are most welcome anytime. We love the poetry you left on the fridge!
Cabin by the lake
Thank you again for letting me stay at your cabin. No complaints.
Really enjoyed the cabin, very well appointed, quiet, close too the boat launch, a most excellent adventure! Great Cats, excellent place to unwind, thanks very much!!!!
Thanks James, it was a pleasure speaking with you. We are happy you enjoyed our cabin. It was once the home of a family that lived and worked in Lincoln Saw Mill during the building of the Grand Coulee Dam. One day a woman walked into the yard at the cabin and told me she had lived there as a girl. Her story was a wonderful verbal history of a time and place, that has been "all but" erased. When the iron burner cone comes, down no one will know about the people and the saw mill that was once home to two generations of lumbermen, their wives and children.
This rustic cabin on Lincoln Lake about 1.25 hours West of Spokane was a very relaxing location. The lack of cell phone coverage and no TV meant that we played a lot of board games with the other couple that stayed for a week at this VRBO property. We were glad that we decided not to bring our dog as the 2 cats appear magically each evening to say hello, coming up through the hole in the floor near the cookstove in the kitchen. The bed in the room near the bathroom was super comfortable and we slept like babies during our stay; our guests thought the same in their bedroom. The kitchen is well appointed, the dishwasher works well, and there are an abundance of towels for kitchen & bathroom use. We didn't find the lack of an oven a problem as we enjoyed fixing our dinners on the back yard barbeque. Lovely ceiling fans in every room are wonderful for the warm August nights, and we all agreed it was a relaxing stay. (The A/C located in the living room was more than adequate to cool down the entire cabin when we needed it.) Lynne was a helpful hostess as we needed to contact her in advance of our trip regarding not taking the dog and requesting our dog deposit returned. She makes it a great experience!
Thanks Ken, you are welcome anytime.
Cabin and Cool Cats
This cabin is a gem of a property. The history of the town of Lincoln is reflected in the cabin. It has wood paneling and floors that were milled at the Lincoln wood mill at an earlier time. The cabin is spacious. There is a lot of wonderful art works around including paintings, hand painted tiles, teapot and mugs. We enjoyed the care and attention to detail that Lynne has put into this gem of a cabin. I loved the fish stencils on the doors. The cats are wonderful and extremely friendly. We have a dog, a Cairn Terrier. One morning we woke up with a cat between us and the dog at the foot of the bed. We had a good laugh. Even though there isn't an oven, I didn't miss it. We didn't miss a TV either. There is a beach close by. The backyard is wonderful and we loved being out there. The cabin was clean and well kept. We had lunch a couple of times at the Mexican restaurant El Ranchito. Very good food and service. Our nephews enjoyed the swing, rope and exploring the area around the cabin.
Artists and writers sequester themselves here to renew their creative connections. Families spend time getting close. Fishermen escape into the time warp that makes a weekend feel like a week. The cabin is five minutes from the boat launch. Hikers and photographers never run out of places to see. If you like to read we have the almost complete National Geographic collection from 1920. Three hammocks and chair swings make hanging out under the trees delightful. See dtails at our website www.lincolnlakecabin.com
