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.
very, very nice cabin lakefront private dock with boat

Had an amazing weekend with my friends at the cabin. Very clean and well taken care of place. Homeowner was easy to get ahold of and super helpful with questions. My friends and I will for sure be renting this place again for our next weekend away.
Comfortable cabin at the end of a harrowing ride!
The ten mile trek back into the mountains or canyon was incredible. It didn't seem possible that a lake would be back in that area but voila.... there it was in all its beauty! It was surprising to see so many lake cabins and lake view homes! Quite a lake community for being so far off the main road.
The home was comfortable and the laundry facilities were great. There were a number of items you just have to figure out. Perhaps a guestbook with details about where things are and how some things work would be helpful to future guests.
The Jacobsmeyer lake front home was more than expected. The drive up the mountain was a bit of a "white knuckler", and upon arrival we breathed a sigh of relief. The place was comfortable, and well stocked. With the use of the outside extra bedroom and bath "cabin", it accommodated the two of us adults without using the beds in the loft area of the main house, which would have been a challenge negotiating the "ladder" daily. Nonetheless, the home would be fun for a family and friends.
Although the fish weren't biting ferociously, the significant plus was having the aluminum boat, with motor and electric trolling motor, at our disposal. Thank you, it was fun.
The stay at the Jacobsmeyer cabin also afforded us the opportunity to visit the Salmon River country and also do some fishing down in the valley, which turned out to be a fun time. Both my son and I enjoyed the stay and appreciated the quick telephone response from the owner when we had a question before our arrival. Overall, a pleasant getaway.
Lovely cabin, great location
We had a lovely time here with two small kids (3 and 1) and extended family. It was wonderful to be able to go out on the lake in the boats and kayaks and the accommodation was perfect for our needs. Just one note that you can’t put smaller kids in the loft area - the stairs are open and quite tricky. Not a complaint - just a comment for other visitors with littles. We hope to come again!
Georgina, do you feel that if we provided a baby gate, it would make it safe enough for your liking, or is it just best to avoid smaller children in the loft? We greatly appreciate your feedback, and always looking to improve our place to best meet the needs our our guests. -Jeff
Perfect cabin for a fishing retreat
The cabin is stocked with everything you'll need, from kitchen essentials to life jackets. The beds were comfortable and everything in the house was in working order. Our group was four adults with four children, and everyone had a lot of fun. We took the boat and kayaks out everyday, and caught 25-30 fish during our five night stay. We'll definitely be back again!
A wonderful place
We loved this. A gorgeous setting right on the lake, with all the toys you might want. The water was beautifully clear for swimming, and if you don't like to swim in cool mountain lakes, then you can kayak or float on the inflatables. There were deer on the lake shore and we saw an eagle catch a fish! My husband loved the little quiet, electric boat for fishing, and couldn't even remember how many trout he had caught after 3 days (we only kept 2 for dinner). There is also a bigger boat with a petrol engine, much faster, but too noisy for my taste. The cabin is older, as others have said, but it is full of character, everything works well, and it was super clean. There are other houses dotted around the lake, but there were people in only a handful, so very private and peaceful. The first drive up to the lake on the gravel road was a bit scary and I was glad we had 4wheel drive, but actually the road is plenty wide for two cars. By the second time we were used to it, and anyways, we saw no reason to leave again, once we had supplies and a fishing license. Finally, high praise from the 16-year-old: "I thought I would get really bored without wifi, but I had fun". Thank you, we would love to come back.
