I love that I was able to pay for this over several months.
The property is perfect for our family. The kids loved the dock for swimming and the basement was nice for them to have their own space while the adults could lounge on the huge deck. The place was clean, well-stocked with the dishes we needed, and very comfortable.

Thanks for everything Jan!!!! It is truly a blessing to have a service like Wallowa Lake Vacation Rentals. Jan walked me through every step in choosing which cabin would fit my needs. The cabin was perfect. Now... if only Jan could control the weather!!!!!
Great memories! As soon as I got home I made a vacation video to share with my family.

We did have to contact the team right before checkin and the experience was very good! The member was cheerful and very helpful.
The overall experience was excellent. The dumpsters were half full when we arrived and did not leave enough room for our garbage over the weekend. However, we thought it was probably due to inability to access to property during winter conditions.

Everything was wonderful! We had several meals arranged to be prepared by different pairs of geusts that consisted of really good cooks and we had almost everything we needed. (No biggie- Pepper grinder, sugar? ) We all ate at the big table together, sat in the living room and played games by the fire together. The beds were great. The dock fantastic. We enjoyed every minute of our stay!

We absolutely loved our stay in this property. The check in and check out process were a breeze. The property was absolutely beautiful and far above any other vacation rentals we've used before. We could have spent our whole visit in the house and been completely content. Thanks for such a wonderful weekend getaway!

Wonderful log mansion, great beds, well stocked kitchen, good furniture. Nice for larger group. Far down road, which is what we want. Has own dock which is great bonus. Yes steep and rugged, but this is what a glacial moraine lake is! Cold, deep, beautiful. Wonderful house. Don't tell anyone else, we want it open for us. You'll have to book far in advance for this one.

Your team was excellent to work with. The only thing that happened of concern was probably my anxiety over "next steps" and confirmation prior to the visit. When it was time for the second payment I did not find a "reminder" in my email, so I called to find out where things stood. Other than that, all went very well. Also, it is a bit dicey finding the "cabin" (really a home)so people should allow some time for locating the roads and driveway. Even with the detailed instructions provided, we had a number of missed cues. Something as simple as a more noticeable sign at the top of the road could really help.
The property is probably a higher quality than we expected for one that has catered to so many people, families and larger groups and even accepts pets. It was brilliant to have a lower level that is luxurious yet perfect for a pet and it's "parents." The location is very convenient to so many things in the area, yet feels cozy and secluded at the same time. Restrictions on driving speeds and noise also assist us in being able to enjoy the property and neighborhood. When we filled out the maintenance sheet we got carried away with nit picky things, but things we would want to know if we owned this property. We would want the wear and tear to be minimal and attended to as soon as it is known. Hope that list helped.


WE WANT YOU TO HAVE A GREAT TIME WHILE STAYING AT WALLOWA LAKE! Here are a few rules you’ll want to adhere to be a good boating neighbor:


  • Launch from north or south day use areas.  
  • Refer to your individual home information on empty trailer storage. CALL IF QUESTIONS.
  • If you leave your boat/truck at the launch areas, make sure you lock the vehicle.


  • You are responsible for your own wake and any damage caused by you in regards to our dock.
  • You are responsible for your own wake and any damage caused by you to other docks on the lake.
  • Observe the no wake buoy, the posted speed limit on them is clearly marked.
  • Be respectful of boats moving slower than you and be considerate of the wake you create.


  • The buoys in the lake are clearly marked with posted speed
  • Do not engage in “drag races” close to the West side homes
  • Please depart slowly from the docks and come in slowly to the docks.
  • Slow down if another boat is trying to overtake you.
  • Please provide an ample berth around slower moving vessels.


  • Noise travels very well on the lake. Please be respectful for your neighbors on and off the lake.
  • The middle and highway side of the lake are more suited for play time.
  • The west side of the lake where the cabins/houses are located is more suited for fishing, quiet travel, and “Sunday drives”

Location - West side of Wallowa Lake.

West side of Wallowa Lake.
Properties located on west side of Wallowa Lake will either have private lake access nd private boat dock (during peak season) or will have a view of Wallowa Lake. If you rent a home on Wallowa Lake, the boat dock is yours for your private use during your stay. If you rent a home with a view of Wallowa Lake, there is not any lake access from your home and all lake enjoyment will need to be at the North or South sides of the lake at the public day use areas.
