Overview

About the property

Expansive 3 Bedroom 2 bath Lakefront, Dock, Sunset Views

Brannholm is a 1973 Scandinavian modern lodge featuring cedar walls, knotty pine ceilings, and windows along the south and west sides of the home, providing lake views from nearly every room. The home has modern, comfortable furnishings, but maintains the fun of the original design by featuring nautical, vintage rustic, and Scandinavian details. At 3200 square feet on .6 acre, the home is double the size of most three bedroom homes in Lincoln City.

Common Areas

The great room is around 1000 square feet, with an open floorplan centered on a modern rock fireplace. One side has leather reclining seating and a large HD TV, so you can all watch the game or enjoy the lake view. The upper deck allows you to watch the sunset inside or ouThe other side has lakeview dining for the whole family. The dining area flows into a double galley kitchen, featuring a gas cooktop and indoor grill, with space for the whole family to cook together. At the opposite end of the kitchen, you will find a breakfast nook, dry bar, and sunroom with extra space for yoga or morning reflection.

Sleeping

The upstairs 'guest' bedroom is private, and features a king sized bed with a crib available, and a small tv. An extra twin mattress can be made up here (sheets, blankets, pillows provided).

The downstairs 'camp' bedroom features lake views, a queen sized bed, 2 twins on a bunk bed. There is also a full rollaway and full futon can be set up here (all sheets, blankets, pillows provided).

The downstairs master bedroom features lake views and a queen sized bed, loveseat, desk, and small tv. An extra twin mattress can be set up here (all sheets, blankets, pillows provided).

There is also extra sleeping upstairs, the great room daybed is a twin sleeper (sheets, blankets, pillows provided). You may also catch yourself sleeping in the super-comfy recliners!

To sleep 12 people, 2 people each share the 2 queens and the king bed. The other 6 sleep solo in the twin beds/twin mattresses, daybed, full futon, and full rollaway. Quality linens and Pendleton blankets are provided for all beds.

Cooking

The kitchen is set up for cooking: toaster, coffeepot, espresso machine, looseleaf teapot, rice cooker, wok, stick blender, regular blender, cookie sheets, pizza pan, muffin pan, cake pans, roaster, casserole, pots, pans, popcorn popper, bread machine, food processor. If you are planning a special meal, we can send an inventory so you know what (if anything) you need to bring.

Amenities

You'll find the home equipped with coffee, tea, staples, and basic spices. There are also games for all ages, children and adult books. An I-pod dock allows you to share your music.

Outdoors

Use the dock and patio for your boat, to fish, or to launch your canoe; a swim ladder makes lake access easy. We provide 2 sit on top kayaks, some fishing gear, and life vests. There is a fenced dog run where your dogs can play, and an upper lawn where you can throw a football, or set up volleyball or croquet. Extra outdoor seating in the dog run, and on our detached upper deck. Secure storage is available in the shop for your bikes or other gear. A public boat launch is less than a mile away.

Location

Brannholm is close to the beaches of Lincoln city, on the less populated East Side of the lake. Devils lake is much warmer than the Pacific, and is popular for swimming, canoeing/kayaking/SUP, boating, fishing, waterskiing, wakeboarding and wave running. The lake effect gives us sun even when the beach or the valley is fogged in!

Birds abound here in all seasons. In summer, you'll see hummingbirds, osprey, swallows, egrets, herons, kingfishers, and other water birds. In winter, there are eagles, owls, blackbirds, mergansers, grebes and ducks. Rare visitors may make an appearance, such as pileated woodpecker, or the northern spotted owl.

Immediately uphill from Brannholm is the Siuslaw National Forest, home to all kinds of wildlife, mushrooms and berries. Deer, owls, black bear, cougar, and coyotes may venture down the mountain. Old logging roads there are great for mountain biking or a walk in the woods.

Access

There is private parking here for 4-6 cars in our turnaround and garage. Public transit for Lincoln county is about 2 miles away. There are 2 steps to enter the home, and the main level has all of the common space and the 'guest' bedroom.

More information

Need to host a crowd of 24 people, or have separate mens and womens facilities for a retreat? Contact us--we can facilitate booking Brannholm AND our neighbor's rental to house up to 24 people in adjacent houses. Please ask about events as a separate contract is required.

About John

We love Oregon! We found an amazing "super 70s" custom home, restored, preserved, designed and curated the interior to create our dream home and share it with others. "Brannholm" is our love letter to the 1970s slow pace with water, sun, fun, and long conversations by the fire--the perfect place to build your memories with family and friends.

John purchased this house in 2013

Why John chose Oregon

We selected Devils lake because it has all the benefits of the Oregon Coast with a warmer, sunnier, lakefront space for play. This home is so close to the water, you'll see lake from nearly every room. The great room is so spacious it is hard to capture in pictures. 12 guests can stay without feeling crowded--the whole family can be together, or you can retreat to many different areas.

What makes this house unique

It doesn't get closer to the water! Our home was custom built in 1973, designed to maximize beautiful views of water from nearly every room. We restored the home with an eye to preserving the home's vintage charm and architecture. The dock and lake access allow swimming, paddling, boating, or simply play. Birds abound here, and your dogs can take a dip in the lake or exercise in our large, shady dog run. The kitchen has space for multiple cooks, and the whole family can sit down and eat together. High quality mattresses, linens, and seating are found throughout the home.

Beautiful vacation, great location

  • 4 of 5

The house is big and very kid friendly! The lake is amazing and we spent every day kayaking or taking a short trip to the ocean. Kids has a great time catching little fish...wonderful memories! The downstairs bathroom has a little water leak problem and had a tinge of mildew smell. The carpet to the bedroom from the bathroom was always wet. The dishwasher upstairs leaks so we had to keep a towel under it every time we ran it. Otherwise, we enjoyed the house and the fantastic location!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Nicole! I appreciate your constructive feedback as well. There is a special button that drains the dishwasher if there is a food clog, I'll try to better explain that to guests.

Glorious week away full of Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

The view of the lake was amazing! The house was very comfortable with a fully stocked kitchen. Having a dog run was very convenient and the boat dock was perfect for fishing. I enjoyed Kayaking daily and when it was rainy we enjoyed the large kitchen table for puzzles and games. We will be back!

Amazing time with the family and can't beat the views!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do this home justice...we couldn't get enough of the view from the picture windows lining the lake side of the house. We also had plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the space. The kids and adults had a very wonderfully relaxing time! Thank you for letting us share your amazing home!

AMAZING - AWESOME HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented this home for the Christmas holiday. This house has everything you'd want in a vacation home and more. The views out the huge windows are amazing from sunrise to sunset. When you walk in the first time the view will take your breath away. Spacious living & dining area with plenty of seating & perfect for entertaining. Plenty of room in the kitchen for multiple cooks plus lots of spices & condiments & cooking utensils for the variety of meals we prepared. Beds were incredibly comfortable with plenty of linens, bedding, towels & toiletries. The house was large enough to enjoy quiet time also. Our only regret was not getting to stay longer....We will definitely want to rent this home again.
