This cabin is fully appointed with all the comforts and lodge decorating. From the moment you enter the great room with soaring ceiling and stone fireplace, you’ll feel right at home. No detail has been left out in this lodge.

The great room is completed with a cooks’ kitchen and dining nook with an amazing picture window that frames the multi-state, year-round mountain view. The front porch and upper deck are perfect for your morning coffee and taking in the warm daytime sun. Rounding out the main level of the cabin are two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master suite features an en-suite bathroom with soaring ceiling.

Above the main level is a large loft with hand-hewn railings and laurel branches. The loft includes a sitting/reading area and a hand-made hickory desk.

The lower level includes a third bedroom and full bathroom as well as a large entertainment area where you can play ping-pong, board games and Wii.

About Joe Haban II

We are like most everyone else...busy professionals who enjoy the chance to get away to recharge. We dreamed of owning a mountain cabin for years and actively searched for the perfect place for three of those years. We hope that you will enjoy Laurel Lodge as much as we do.

Joe Haban II purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Joe Haban II chose Northwest High Country

Laurel Lodge is the perfect fit for us. From it's setting and long-range mountain view to the hand crafted features, it 'spoke' to us right away. We love the laurel branch and hand-hewn timber railings, the large picture window in the dining nook, the views from both porches and the way the stars fill the sky at night. Welcome to Laurel Lodge, ya'll!

What makes this cabin unique

The details are what matter to us. The handcrafted laurel branch deck and stair railings, the huge picture window in the dining area, and the wide plank pine flooring set the stage. We had been collecting cabin decorations for a number of years in anticipation of one day owning a place like Laurel Lodge, so it was the perfect match for us.

Girl's Weekend

  • 5 of 5

A group of us spent the weekend at Laurel Lodge. The accommodations were wonderful! The kitchen and bathrooms had everything that we could possibly need, the cabin was immaculate, the beds were very comfortable and the view was spectacular! We will definitely be going back in the future. Brian and Joe were very accommodating and easy to contact with a few questions that we had arise over our stay.

Outstanding! Highly Recommend!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I finally had the opportunity to take a vacation together. Something we have tried to arrange for years. We could not have found any place more perfect. Thank you Joe and Brian for sharing your beautiful retreat and for allowing us to "re-connect" again. A priceless time together!! Highly recommend! We hope to have the opportunity to visit this beautiful place again.

Very nice home

  • 5 of 5

Everything was well maintained and thoughtfully arranged.

I think we used every amenity and found all to be in great condition, somewhat rare these days.

Thank you for the last min consideration for our dog.

Was it really 5 Star??? YESSSSSS

  • 5 of 5

Loved Laurel Lodge & it was just enough out of the way to be somewhat secluded but easy enough to town. You are a guest in someone's house, not just a rental. Needed some honey- they had it, olive oil to cook an egg-check! Amazing views in a quiet mountainside. Just doesn't get any better! Close to Tank Town USA if you need an out of the ordinary experience... yes, hubby crushed a Chrysler New Yorker driving his own tank. The 40 minute drive to Crane Creek winery was some of the best views I've seen since New Zealand. Fantastic large cabin that felt like home and our weenie dogs smiled all week!

A Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Laurel Lodge and again it was completely perfect. We walked into an immaculately neat and clean house just as before. The house has all the amenities and is fully stocked with everything you could possibly want. The beds are comfortable and this house really feels like home. We love this home and hope to come back!
