Lakeside Cabin On Harlan County Reservoir. Great view, lake access

Lakefront cabin with kitchen and patio
2 bedroom, 1 bathroom cabin along the north side of Harlan County reservoir. Bedroom #1 which we refer to as the "fishing bedroom" has a queen bed and extra space for a cot or air mattress if you want to bring one. Bedroom #2, aka the "hunting bedroom" has 2 twin beds and a full size bed. 6 people stay comfortably, 7 can be accommodated if you want people to sleep on the couch in the living room. Fresh linens and some bath towels provided.

Full kitchen with all the cookware you will need (refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot, crock pot, toaster etc). Living room/dining room face the lake. 1 bathroom that has a shower only. Cabin is air conditioned with two window air conditioners. The back deck faces the lake and ponderosa pine trees line the yard for shade and relaxation. A covered patio table is in the back yard and you can use our gas grill.

There is not WiFi at the cabin, however there is outstanding cell phone coverage. There is a television that has a DVD player and some movies are provided but there is not cable or satellite. You are at the lake, enjoy the outdoors!

Fire ring and lawn chairs are in the back yard for evening entertainment. There is plenty of room for whatever yard games you want to bring. Blue Tooth speakers for your music are provided. Please keep the size of the fires reasonable and do not use fire pit in high winds. Put fire out each night when retiring for the night. You will need to bring your own firewood.

Lake access and we catch fish off the bank below the cabin all summer long. Bank fishing does slow down in August. If lake is high you can fish right off the bank below the cabin, if lake is down some you will have to go down the bank to fish. Either way you can fish off the bank. There is also a cove to the west of the cabin you can walk down to and fish. Boat launching both north and south of the cabin at Methodist, Hunter, or Gremlin Cove, they are all three less than a 10 minute drive.

This is a cabin with an approximate size of about 850 SF. We sit on the north side of the lake across from Prairie Dog bay. The weekends are great but if you can find a way to stay during the week it is wonderful as the lake traffic is less than 25% of what it is on the weekend and these are some of the best days to be out on the water or at the lake.

As you can see from the photos Harlan County reservoir is a hunter and fisherman's paradise. Our cabin reflects this in it's décor and how it is set up. If you like to hunt, fish, or relax at the lake come stay with us.

If you have any questions prior to booking please message me. I want to make sure this is the right place for you before you book. If your expectation is that you are renting a luxury house my cabin is not for you. It is very comfortable but it is a cabin.
I also try to treat everyone who stays like they are family or friends, if there is anything I can do to make your stay more enjoyable I will certainly try.

Air-conditioned accommodations at this cabin offer DVD players and coffee/tea makers. Rooms open to patios. Kitchens offer refrigerators, stovetops, microwaves, and cookware/dishes/utensils. Bathrooms include showers and hair dryers.

Old, dirty and not as advertised
Our stay at the House on the Lake at Harlan County Reservoir Alma and Republican City was not at all what we expected. The curb appeal was negative before we got into the house. The view through the picture windows was amazing. The sun was shining in the 2 picture windows and there are no drapes to block the sun. The 2 small window air conditioners (stuck in the windows right next to the front door, so hot air was being expelled on anyone coming into the cabin), could not make a dent in the air temp to cool the cabin on our day of arrival. The cabin was very dirty. I don't know why a cleaning fee was included it was not clean. The oscillating fan had grimy dust strands blowing out when the fan was on. It was taken apart and sprayed down outside just so we could use it. The floors were disgusting in the kitchen. Coffee spilled from previous guests was evident on the floors and the utility cart. The area around the trash can in the kitchen was just gross. The description regarding fishing near the cabin was absolutely false. It is NOT easy lake access. There is a 15 ft. drop that was accommodated by steps but it didn’t have steps to get down the next 8 ft drop to the water. If you could get down to the water’s edge there was so much brush and dead trees, fishing was not possible. The cove just to the West of the cabin was totally inaccessible from the shore. The only way to fish in that area was to rent a boat. The cabin was advertised as having a canoe available; it was apparently stolen so it was misrepresented in the cabin description. IF we could have transported the canoe down to the shore, I am not sure we could have returned it to the cabin because of the cliff nature of the shore line. The floor in the “master” bedroom squeaked every time anyone walked on it. It was annoying. The extra blankets in the closet were quilted rags; I have seen dog blankets in better shape. The owner contacted us to purchase dish soap and trash bags because there were none in the cabin. He did reimburse us. I would not recommend this rental. The furniture was worn and there were no front legs on the couch which was about 30 inches in front of the TV. The glare from the picture window made it difficult to watch movies (there is no TV reception or cable at the cabin). Overall very disappointed. I have pictures of the issues described above. Not worth the price we paid.
