A Word From Your Hosts
The Lake House is a cedar home and guest cottage located on Devil's Lake, two miles from the Pacfic coastline and downtown Lincoln City. The house has a wonderful view with a private deck great for watching beautiful Oregon sunsets. The convenient lake access offers opportunities for boating, swimming, and fishing. The name "The Lake House" was given to it by our grandchildren long before it was a bed and breakfast. They loved their visits to the lake, and we are sure you will too!
