“Scenic getaway close to Lincoln and Omaha”
Reviewed 30 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Beautiful home on well-kept grounds close to a premier recreation area. We had a wonderful time fishing, kayaking, walking around the lake, and playing games. Linda, (the owner) was so friendly and helpful! We'll visit again!

“A wonderful place to stay!”
Reviewed 25 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Spencer Hill, located on several acres, was a perfect venue for our family reunion. With three floors there was plenty of room to spread out. There is a huge dining table with a view on the main level, and a spacious entertainment area with of course a big screen TV on the lower level. We enjoyed tunes on the Sonos sound system throughout the home and outside. All of the rooms afforded scenic views.
We thoroughly enjoyed spending time kayaking on Lake Wahahoo and hiking around lake front.
The three bedrooms on different levels offered a lot of privacy, and we utilized the spacious entertainment room as a fourth bedroom, so everyone had their own space.
The kitchen was fully equipped with even a popcorn maker. The Wi-Fi worked great.
The quaint town of Wahoo was just a few minutes away and offered all of the food and supplies that we needed.
Overall, we loved our stay at Spencer Hill and look forward to returning again.

“Gorgeous home with a serene setting - perfect for families!”
Reviewed 22 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

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”
Reviewed 12 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Our family decided to go to the Omaha Zoo as part of our vacation this year. We always look for places outside of the big city to stay. If this is what you are looking for, book today. The cabin offers access to the lake and a large yard for kids to play in or adults to just sit and relax. Wahoo is close for last minute items and Omaha is 30-45 minutes away* for a bigger city outing. Want to stay in and cook your meals? They have most of what you will need in the kitchen for you to use. We have already discussed renting it next year as well. The owners are very gracious and have many good suggestions for those unfamiliar with the area. I could continue on, but will just say..... If you are looking for a home away from home, this is your place.
*depending on what side of Omaha your destination is.

“Peace & quiet”
Reviewed 8 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

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.
