Vacation right on the water at Lake of the Woods, a beautiful natural mountain lake, with expansive views of the lake, Mt. McLaughlin, & Mt. Baldy, from this cabin, relaxing on your private deck, or while floating on the water on your own private dock.
The cabin is on the lake's east side, and the sun sparkles incredibly over the water in the afternoon. The sunsets across the lake while enjoying a glass of wine or lemonade are truly special.
This lovely and comfortable lakefront cabin is thoroughly equipped, attractively paneled throughout in light pine, and makes the most of the gorgeous views from the lake side. The cabin is over 1300 square feet, and was modernized in the late 90's. It features a full kitchen a bathroom with shower, two bedrooms on the main floor that can sleep 5 (a large master on the lakeside, with queen bed and a storage closet; and a smaller bedroom with a bunk bed and trundle that sleeps 3), and a generous, mostly enclosed loft space above with its own lake-view window and two twin mattresses to sleep 2 more, separately or pushed together to make a king.
Furnishings include an ample gas grill for barbeques on the deck, market umbrellas for the dock and the deck dining table, a glider and rockers for the deck, chaise lounges and Adirondack chairs, footstools and side tables for the dock, and a 17-foot Navarro canoe and a sit-on-top Ocean Kayak that seats up to 3. (These last are available only for those experienced with such equipment and willing to assume full responsibility for any risks or consequences of their use.) Plenty of life jackets, paddles, etc., of course, as well as swimming noodles, inflatable rafts and toys, and the like. There's a woodburning stove (plenty of wood in a covered woodshed), and a portable fire "pit" if you feel like sitting by a small campfire near the water.
Watersports and enjoyment of the Lake itself are obviously at the center of this experience, but there's always more to do. The Pacific Crest Trail is accessible less than 10 minutes away, and plenty of less well-known but wonderful hikes are available just as close – or by just walking out from the cabin itself. Biking around the lake or down to neighboring lake areas is popular and fun. Additional boat rentals can be arranged at the Resort (just at the end of the lake), and the Resort's also great to visit if you feel like getting a nice meal cooked for you in their restaurant, picking up a few supplies at the store, or checking out the evening music or outdoor films on weekends. As well, of course, this beautiful mountain lake is only about 45 minutes from "civilization:" all the attractions of Ashland (including the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, shops and great restaurants), Klamath Falls, and Medford are available within a reasonable drive.
We love our cabin and hope you will, too. It's charming, comfortable, sweet, clean, has been modernized with everything you need and would want for a great, fun, restful lakefront vacation at one of the prettiest -- and definitely the most accessible -- natural lakes in the region. All at a very reasonable price.
Not a lot of rules: Take care of the place, and yourselves. Put things back the way you found them when you're ready to leave: dishes cleaned; garbage in the wastebin; if you use more than a scant amount of cut wood, chop some to replace it.; etc. No smoking permitted in or outside the cabin. Also, a well-behaved dog can be considered – with prior approval. Sorry, but no cats allowed.+ More
