About Jacque and Larry Robeson

Jacque and Larry Robeson grew up in Southeast Washington and both enjoyed trips to Wallowa Lake as youngsters with their parents. We never dreamed we might someday have a place at the lake and were blessed to be able to buy our 2nd home in 1990. Our family has enjoyed it over the years and we recently have opened it up to others to experience this beautiful mountain retreat. We know you will enjoy it too.

Jacque and Larry Robeson purchased this cabin in 1990

Why Jacque and Larry Robeson chose Oregon

Many people just a 100 miles from Wallowa Lake have never heard of it. The crystal clear water and snow topped mountains are a stark contrast to the wheat fields that are so close by. We both love to boat, fish, camp out, view wildlife, and the privacy of this spot. It's pretty cool to see deer walking around, chipmunks hoping for a handout, beautiful birds and spectacular scenery. The fact that it is not on the beaten path but very accessable makes it all the more desireable. The air is so clean and fresh and just smells good. The lake itself is crystal clear.

What makes this cabin unique

Very easy access for elderly or anyone who may have trouble navigating stairs, some of best views from any cabin, large flat yard for games, cozy knotty pine interior throughout. Sorry, we are not totally handicapped accessible (bathrooms).

Perfect little lake house...

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the lake house. It has great views of the lake and is very private. I enjoyed swimming in the lake every day. It is quite close to both Joseph and local trail-heads.

The only caution I would have is if you are 6' 3" or over you might need to watch your head on a few beams.

Lakefront beauty

  • 5 of 5

An excellent cabin in a spectacular place. The accommodation is fully equipped to provide a comfortable stay. The lake is visible from a wall of windows along the east wall. The deck and dock offer great access to the lake. We hope to return here again. The owners are responsive and accommodating. They have a well-organized and well-maintained cabin.

Great locations, with some minor drawbacks

  • 4 of 5

The Robeson's lakeside cabin has a great location, is clean, and well maintained. We had a great stay there, with easy access to the Lake, Joseph and surrounding area.

I would not give 5 stars for the following reasons (they are not deal-breakers, but do matter to us as experienced travelers and VRBO home renters)

- The boat dock makes a squeaking noise all night if there is any wind on the Lake - the only way to drown it out was to put on the fan in the bedroom.

- No A/C (VRBO states there is A/C there, which is inaccurate)

- It would have been nice if the owners included laundry detergent and other supplies - this would cost the owners pennies but results in an extra trip into town to buy a whole bottle of detergent. This is a pet peeve of mine when renting homes.

- Layout of the living room is a bit awkward furniture is mostly Lazy Boy chairs

- Owners do not text, so communication required phone calls

Other than these drawbacks, we had a lovely time and would recommend.

Owner's Response: We think and hope our cabin is exceptionly stocked. We do not supply laundry detergent due to fact some people are allergic to certain kinds and that is an item we have been cautioned against providing. Living room setup is a personal preference and most agree ours is very comfortable. We do text, and did not receive any from clients. Both owners have cell phones. We thought we had clarified the A/C concern on the website with the fan comments. We realize this can be confusing to some so have deleted. Normally at this high altitude fans are sufficient during the day and nights typically in 50s. We noted on the Vrbo site that we have supplied numerous fans and there is good cross ventllation.The dock is on moveable water and occasionally needs grease. Just let us know and we are close to correct the problem. Appreciate the comments.
