Our custom-built Lincoln Log cabin sits at 5,200 feet elevation on 1 acre in Diamond Peaks, with an outdoor picnic table & fire pit. Decorated with Native American & cabin artwork, it has a luxurious lodge feeling throughout, with pine paneled walls for extra coziness. Great for couples, families (with kids), and furry friends (dogs). The local area is an outdoor person's paradise - 15 minutes drive to Willamette Pass for skiing/snowboarding, and 10 minutes to Crescent Lake in summer
You’ll love the high-end feel of this cabin - we have created a luxurious home away from home! The gourmet kitchen with stainless appliances & granite countertops; two fireplaces (wood & gas) so you are warm on every level; the comfy beds with new linens; the incredible selection of games for entertainment (no cabin fever here!); the calming and peaceful ambience with Tibetan prayer flags blowing outdoors in the breeze; an outdoor BBQ for summertime grilling; deck seating & sun umbrella for shade, and last but not least...the tranquil 1 acre property with picnic table, reading benches, and an outdoor fire pit from which you can enjoy spectacular starry nights.
Crater Lake National Park (north entrance) is an hour away by car, and makes for an inspiring day trip!
The entire home.
Some closets, and an area of the Garage will be posted "Owner Use Only" and will be locked and not accessible to guests.
I will not be around to welcome guests. However, I have a local friend that can be contacted in emergencies with any home-related issue that may arise.
The roads within our development are plowed in the winter time, as is our driveway. Expect snowy conditions in winter, often times a LOT of snow. Best to check the weather forecast ahead of time and plan accordingly. Visit ODOT and check conditions for Willamette Pass. Weather Underground gives accurate weather forecasts.
Do not drive down our driveway UNLESS you have snow tires on your vehicle. Please park on the main road at the top of the driveway.. if you don't, you may get stuck!
The cellphone service is spotty in this area. Verizon works better than AT&T. There is Wi-Fi in the home (think Mountain Time - its not super-high-speed like you'll find in the cities) so you can email and send text messages; and a local phone in case of emergencies.
- Please remove shoes and wear slippers/socks around the house.
- Please no pets on the beds or furniture. 1 x Pet Bed is provided, along with treats, doggie towels and some toys.
- Max 2 dogs per stay, upon approval, and non-agressive breeds only. Please make sure your dog does not bark excessively and annoy the neighbors.
- Dogs may NOT be left in the home while you are exploring outdoors; please take them with you so they don't chew things up / suffer from anxiety in your absence. Please also use the doggie pooh bags to pick up after your pet! We and our next guests will really appreciate not having to stand in it when we are roaming the yard!
- We are on a septic tank system and appreciate your help in keeping this from getting clogged with things it can't handle! Please do not dispose of diapers, wipes, sanitary products or hair in the sink or toilet.
- Our neighborhood backs to Forest Service/BLM land in the Willamette National Forest. During summer months (typically May thru September), fire restrictions are in place to prevent forest fires, so during this time NO outdoor fires are permitted. If you wish to enjoy the outdoor fire pit, Late Spring and Fall are the best times of year to do so! Thank you for your understanding and help with this.
- Please be mindful of conserving energy, just as you would do at home. Thank you!
My husband & I built our log cabin 8 years ago, and have enjoyed so many happy times there with friends & family. We have travelled all over the world for work and pleasure - but it was the peace & natural beauty of this special area of Oregon that made us want to build a cabin for our family here. We have spent summer & winter holidays, and as much time in-between, at our home away from home. While there we enjoy reading, watching DVD movies, hiking with our Bernese Mountain Dog, skiing and snowshoeing, visiting Crater Lake National Park, paddle-boarding on Crescent Lake, and exploring the local region.
My life motto is: Carpe Diem! (Inspired by my Mum who gave so much to everyone in her life, always with a loving heart and compassion) Her passing has taught me the importance of living life to the fullest each and every day; and to be grateful for health, family and friends who 'lift us up' on our journey through life.
