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.

What a great departure from the rat race! Quiet, relaxing, equipped with everything needed. The mountain biking out of here is excellent. Owner even called us just to check to ensure all was well - which it indeed was. Love NO tv, nor connectivity. Keep this place the way it is!

My favorite vacation of all time

The cabin met all of our expectations. Complete relaxation. Had everything we could have wanted. We combined it with a day trip on the Salmon River. Perfect week.

This cabin was so comfortable and gave us that at home feeling. Everything was perfect and the cabin was well supplied with everything we needed. The grandkids loved fishing and jumping off the dock. The boat was a plus we we all able to go on the lake together 4 in the boat 3 on kayaks. All small problems we handled quickly by the jacobsmeyer's. They were the most friendly and acomadating people. I would recommend this cabin to anyone that needs that relaxing get away. Our grand kids didn't even miss the tv or Internet. Nor did the adults.

Awesome family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying here and exploring the area. The cabin was very well kept with good supplies and plenty of space to hang out inside or outside. We enjoyed having the boat and kayaks to explore the lake as well as fish. The house location and trees provided ample shade to escape the heat, but the dock is still in the sun which was perfect. There are a few games in the cabinet and we played a few rounds of monopoly during our stay. We met Fred and had a great chat on the porch, he was very kind and had allowed us to bring our dogs. All in all a great place to stay with beautiful views and plenty to do! Would definitely stay here again if we returned to Williams Lake.

Beautiful Lake, Great Fishing, Cabin Has Everything You Could Ask For!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin literally has everything you could need, plenty of towels, clean, the gas barbeque worked great, and we spent a lot of time in the boat fishing. We discovered the best fishing area was right off the dock! Deer showed themselves one evening. Spent one afternoon with Rawhide Outfitters doing a scenic rafting trip, which was awesome! Highly recommend them for outdoor activities. The cabin has plenty of room for a large family or friends. I recommend leaving the loft area for any one who can handle really steep stairs (kids and people with good knees). The apartment behind the cabin is perfect for one couple and gives them privacy. We didn't swim in the lake, but kids will love it. Had a really nice visit with the owner, who is extremely accomodating. We had a spectacular time and are planning on going back next year. Wish we could have stayed longer.
