The space

This luxury cabin is located on Spencer Hill, a secluded treed acreage conveniently located just 30 minutes from Omaha or Lincoln and footsteps away from Lake Wanahoo. This splendid retreat is ideal for couples, families, business or social gatherings or anyone wanting to get away from the hectic pace of life.

The cabin features a 2400 sq. ft. open floor plan decorated with modern/rustic furnishings, knotty pine cathedral ceilings, reclaimed antique barn wood flooring and granite countertops. The 3 bedrooms/3 baths are appointed with luxury linens. The 4+ acre property is 600 ft. from Lake Wanahoo which offers biking, hiking, kayaking, fishing and is a bird watcher's paradise!

The cabin is situated on 4.5 beautifully landscaped acres with complete privacy. Many large windows offer awesome views of Lake Wanahoo. The only noise is that of Mother Nature and an occasional crowing rooster. A tepee is situated on the property and is a great place for telling stories to the little ones in the dark!

Guests will have full access to the cabin which includes 3 levels:

Main floor has a fully equipped kitchen, a great room with dining capacity for 10-20 and amazing views of the lake, a gas fireplace, a master bedroom with a queen size log bed. The deck is accessible from the great room and master bedroom and is equipped with a Weber stainless steel gas grill and has dining capacity for 6-10.

The cozy loft features knotty pine ceilings and is furnished with a king size bed. The loft has a full bath, 2 built-in bunks (1 is child size), a small deck for enjoying your morning coffee and a small hideout for the kids.

The lower level has more large windows with views of the lake, a bedroom with 2 sets of bunk beds, a full bath and a flat screen television with a DVD player and DIRECTV. There is also a full size sofa sleeper for extra guests. The walkout is to a patio equipped with a Weber charcoal grill and has dining capacity for 6. There is a fire pit adjacent to the patio with firewood and skewers for roasting marshmallows provided.

Music is available through a SONOS adapter and can be heard throughout the cabin and outdoors via built in speakers. An Apple Nano loaded with various playlists is also available for your use.

The quiet town of Wahoo is located 1 mile south and offers many conveniences from fast food to restaurants, banks, a bakery and two grocery stores. The town also has an 18-hole golf course, a large park and swimming pool and is the site of the Saunders County Fair. Omaha's world class Henry Doorly Zoo, the College World Series and the annual Berkshire Hathaway meeting are an hour's drive away. The Wahoo Municipal Airport is also located just 1 mile east.

We are sorry but due to allergy issues we cannot accommodate pets. We also do not permit smoking or excessive drinking on the premises at any time.

Due to parking and bathroom restrictions we limit events to 30 people or less.

Guest access

In addition to the cabin amenities listed above, the guest can have full access to nearby Lake Wanahoo's recreational activities which include kayaking, fishing, hiking and biking.

Interaction with guests

There will be no interaction with the owner. The 3 bedroom, 3 bath cabin is completely available for your private getaway.

Other things to note

We are required to collect an additional 5.5% for sales tax and 5.0% for lodging tax. This has been factored into the cost of the fees. We can accommodate groups of 30 or less for an added event fee. There is a SONOS system connected to the stereo that provides many choices of music through WIFI.

Linda and Rick's beautiful home was the perfect backdrop to our Nebraska eclipse experience. We are forever grateful! The home and grounds are even more beautiful than the photos. There is love, care and energy in their home that positively impacted our experience. You can feel that many loving memories have occurred here. Great for sky gazing at night! Wahoo is a delightful town. We feel lucky to have landed in this special place!

We were thrilled to share our place with an adventurous group of women who traveled to Nebraska to experience the wonder of the eclipse. Thank you for recognizing the potential for creating life long memories at Spencer Hill, as this is what we hope happens when every group of friends or family unite here. We hope you'll come back again one day. Warmly, Rick & Linda

Very comfortable. Very Clean. Has all the amenities that anyone could ask for and more. The price was well worth it and a great value as I would consider this a 5 Star retreat! The host was very accommodating, and very nice! Check in and check out was a breeze! We will be back in the future and I would highly recommend this place to anyone!

Linda's place is so amazing! Everything was perfect and beautiful. I recommend reading through the (URL HIDDEN) had lots of helpful information, especially when someone locked the bathroom door with no one in there! Although it is a little walk to the water, it isn't bad. I do recommend bug spray if you are going down in the evening. Not far from the fishing dock, and when you get an opportunity, throw a line in! We did find that Wahoo does not have any stores that sell any fishing supplies, so you may want to bring those with you. There were 2 fishing poles that were left behind by previous guests, and I spent some time untangling and repairing them so they would be ready to go for whomever would want to use them next. Spend some time out on the lake! Linda has 2 kayaks, and we also tried canoes from Wanahoo Canoe, just a few properties north. The Mexican restaurant she recommended was top notch! The house was so peaceful and well-appointed. The sheets were a luxury! I don't know that I've ever felt sheets so soft! The morning views were a delight. The teepee was a fun little surprise and can be a sleeping area too. My son discovered the hidden penny, maybe you will too! Thank you, Linda! It was well worth it!

The natural beauty of this spot is breathtaking -- far beyond what I'd imagined. I have many photos and videos of our whole family playing kickball in the giant meadow, framed by the lake and sunset behind, or catching fireflies, or playing board games. Lovely spot, will happily return.

Thank you for your kind words, Khaled. I enjoyed meeting you and feel bad that your last night was hampered by mosquitos. This is not usually a problem inside the house except when the doors are left open. I hope you enjoy the rest of your vacation in the U. S. Sincerely, Linda
