About the property

very, very nice cabin lakefront private dock with boat

Well kept house on the lake You only need to bring food and drinks. All bedding, linens, and silverware provided. fishing boat and gas supplied. no need to clean upon leaving. If you like to raft, hike, horseback ride, or play golf...this is the spot for you. The lake is surrounded by beautiful mountain scenery and many types of 'wild' animals and raptors. Although there are no restaurants at the lake, a short 15 mile trip to town will put you close to several very nice eateries. also, the museum in town is a must see with many Chinese artifacts and old pictures of Salmon City....Hope to see you soon.

Great, clean place.

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is as advertised. Very clean, spacious and quaint. It is vintage 1970's, but everything serviceable, clean and well maintained. It'll remind you of how things used to be... We had a great stay - Thank you!

Quiet relaxation by and on the water

  • 5 of 5

Jeff was very helpful answering our questions before the trip. Lovely location. Well stocked and with plenty of opportunities for boating and kayaking.

Plan to get there before sunset - I wouldn't want to drive the last few miles for the first time in the dark.

Lovely cabin on a nice quite lake!

  • 5 of 5

All the other reviews have accurately described what you can expect upon arrival at the Jacobsmeye Cabin at Williams Lake. A warm, cozy & clean cabin with a nice deck, dock and view of the lake! We really enjoyed the convenience of check in and out, and all of the amenities provided there at the cabin which made it so nice, we could focus on playing in the water, fishing and spending time with the family. We had the best time on this vacation and I would definately recommend this property to other families looking to get the kids outside to play! The amenities and the cabin make this a perfect, affordable family vacation. Working with the Jacobsmeyer's to ensure our needs were met during our stay was easy and much appreciated, thank you!

Beautiful home on William's Lake

  • 5 of 5

The Jacobsmeyer Cabin was absolutely perfect. We brought our family of 5 and had more than enough room. The home was extremely cozy and functional. Here are some highlights!

1- Close to the Lake with great boat dock. Our teenage sons would take the electric boat (provided) out every morning go fishing.

2- The house felt very CLEAN and comfortable.

3- The kitchen was well stocked. We had everything we needed to prepare our meals.

4- The private quarters out back was a nice space to escape the kids sometimes and take a nap.

5- The deck was a great place to sit and take in the views and also a nice place to grill and hang out as a family.

Great memories were made here and no one wanted to leave. I'm impressed by the owners' generosity through renting this property. Hope to come back to Jacobseyer next summer!
