Amazing!

Spencer Hill is pure luxury with a country feel. I have stayed in many places through online rental sites and this one is top notch. We didn't want to leave. Gorgeous setting. Very tasteful and fun decor. Plenty of space for everyone and so well thought out. I highly recommend Spencer Hill.

Well built home with excellent views of, and a short walk to, Lake Wanahoo

We really enjoyed our stay at Spencer Hill. The windows offered great views of the lake and when the adults wanted to cool off inside they helped us keep eyes on our littles. The trail down to the lake was very convenient and easy to use. The cabin itself is very well built and feels warm the moment you walk in. Additionally, the close proximity to Wahoo made picking up supplies very easy. Overall, a great experience!

Perfect Eclipse Experience!
“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!”

Gorgeous Home With A Serene Setting - perfect for families!
We had two families meet at this location for 5 days and had a wonderful time. The house is beautiful, clean and accommodated two families perfectly (plus grandparents!). We took advantage of the fishing and kayaking within walking distance and the local swimming pool was a hit with the kiddos. The best part was relaxing on the back porch, playing frisbee in the yard and reading stories in the teepee. It was a wonderful place to unwind and catch up with family. We hope to be back soon!

Home Away From Home
The whole process of renting this house was very easy. We appreciated Linda's call & the information received re: the local area before arriving. The house is in excellent shape, clean, beautiful & very well decorated. There is a full bath on each levels, making it very convenient. We like the well equipped kitchen. We love the large gas grill at the deck & there is a charcoal grill at the lower level. The lower level is great for family gathering, games & watching a movie. There is an advanced sound system that you can control with you smart phone, or play the music from your phone. The ground was maintained immaculately. We watches birds with the binoculars provided. The view of the lake was very nice, with an excellent sunrise view from the master bedroom, thanks to Linda's reminder. We intended to rent this house for the outings to Omaha daily, so we did not explore the lake by the property. There are two kayaks for the residents, but we did not take advantage of it. We recommend you visit the Wahoo Meat Locker & enjoy a great steak grill like we did & do not forget the tasty Wahoo wieners. Overall, this house provided us a home away from home & enjoyed our vacation without any stress.

Tranquil Family Retreat
This property was amazing! My kids' favorite aspect was the trail that led down to the lake. There is a biking path around the lake and a wonderful fishing dock. Loaded with all the amenities, this home will not disappoint.

The Gathering Place
Floor to ceiling, wall to wall, Spencer Hill Cabin is full of distinctive country charm. It was a perfect venue for our family gathering. We walked in to be greeted by a welcome sign and soft music playing throughout the cabin and on the deck. Linda and Rick told us the only thing we needed to bring was our food and beverages, so true! The kitchen is fully stocked. The three bathrooms had an ample supply of towels and toiletries. The bedrooms are comfortable with luxurious linens. Above all the entire cabin was impeccably clean and well cared for! The grounds are beautifully landscaped. There are large open areas for yard games which are provided along with kayaks and life jackets. Our family loved the peaceful surroundings with beautiful views of Lake Wanahoo. We enjoyed bird watching, visiting by the campfire and walking down the wooded path to go fishing on the dock at the lake. We had a grilling contest with uncle and cousin teams (two grills are provided). We played cards on the large tables, and the kids could relax with a movie on the big screen TV. Younger adults had an adventure sleeping in the wood floor teepee. This was an experience like no other...We highly recommend Spencer Hill Cabin, a place to gather and make wonderful memories!

Fantastic getaway location, clean + cozy house by the lake
I don't know what I was more impressed with--the house itself or how well Linda took care of us. She answered all of our questions, offered suggestions, and was there for anything we needed. The house itself was exactly what we were looking for--very clean, plenty of space, and some amazing views. It was perfect for our small group (10-12) for a few days, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a great little getaway. Omaha and Lincoln are both only a short distance away, but you also have the calmness and tranquility of a quiet, private stay on the lake. We absolutely loved it!

The property is beautiful; the home is thoroughly stocked!
Everything a foodie would desire in the kitchen; nice bath products; blankets in a basket by the back door; board games, etc. Beautiful view. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Serene Beauty!
Spencer Hill Cabin is everything you could want in a peaceful getaway. It also offers activities, if you are so inclined. Situated on Lake Wanahoo, the views of the lake are panoramic from every window. We have seen several deer in the yard. There is a full sized teepee located on the property for the kids to play/sleep in. There is also a path leading directly to the lake for a walk, fishing or a spin around the lake in the kayaks available at the cabin. Neighbors aren't far but not visible as the vast property is surrounded by large trees. The cabin has a very open floor plan and a LOT of space yet offers many quiet bedrooms. The decor is magnificent - capturing the beauty of the woodsy retreat with all the creature comforts of home. It is impeccably clean and every detail has been taken care of. You will want for nothing! Whether you want to watch TV on the large flat screen downstairs, play board games from a large stash, curl up with a good book, grill on the generously sized deck, enjoy the outdoor firepit or relax in front of the fire - Spencer Hill has it all. We have been going twice a year and plan to continue that trip for many years to come. We only live 30 minutes from Spencer Hill but feel we are hundreds of miles away and come home refreshed and relaxed - without paying the price of an airline ticket! We HIGHLY recommend Spencer Hill and know you will love it as much as we do.

Great place for extended family to gather!
All enjoyed the town of Wahoo, great bakery. This was very good location for all family to gather. The house is wonderful for adults and children. Lots of yard space for outdoor activities and playground is nearby.
