Willamette Wine Country Retreat: 'The Lake House' Carlton Area

Bedrooms 3
Half Baths1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths picturesque serene setting.

The Lake House

Nestled in its own world, the Lake House rests within Yamhill County's magnificent wine country. It is the perfect get-a-way retreat.

There are no words or pictures that can adequately describe the serene environment. With 3.5 acres of playing ground, a small lake, three large bedrooms, two full baths and two half baths, it can house up to three couples.

If you long for a bit of activity in between bouts of relaxation, the Lake House is located fifteen minutes from Carlton's wine tasting 'district' and fabulous eateries. The tasting rooms in Carlton provide an exceptional experience from those who prefer sweet whites to Oregon's sought after Pinot Noirs to the rich dark reds produced from the grapes of Southern Oregon. It's all there.

The house is fully furnished and includes a well equipped kitchen. All you need to do is the grocery shopping. Whether it's this weekend or any other vacation you are planning, I hope you consider The Lake House for its ideal location in Oregon's rural Yamhill County.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is truly a beautiful spot and a home that has been well-maintained. Our family enjoyed this place! As many other have noted, it is the perfect retreat after a big day of wine tasting. We would love to come back during summer to enjoy the outdoor patio. Thank you for the hospitality.

Charming Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend at this beautiful lakeside home. Tucked away off the beaten path, it was easy to get to all the local wineries and escape the busy town crowds. Evening wine and cheese was enjoyed on the patio overlooking the lake before settling into an incredibly comfy bed for the night. Can't wait to come back!

So comfortable and relaxing. We were provided with all we needed. The beds and linens were a dream. We thoroughly enjoyed spending time on the deck around dusk overlooking the gorgeous "lake". A lovely property.

Wonderful quiet retreat in beautiful Oregon wine country

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Lake House for a girlfriends reunion and a chance to visit some of the wineries in the surrounding area. The house had everything we needed from a well equipped kitchen to a comfortably furnished great room. The bedrooms were spacious and the bathrooms contained all the amenities. We spent time on the deck overlooking the small pond and enjoyed the quiet setting. It was the perfect getaway for us.

Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house was all that was advertised. We chose this location because it was central to wineries, hiking, and (with a bit of a drive) to the coast. It should be noted that the location is a bit secluded, which was also what we wanted. When we first arrived, we drove uphill until the road became a gravel one and then the entrance to the house was also gravel. We weren't sure we could do it at night but it was easy. The house was beautiful and well furnished. Plenty of amenities, including lots of towels (thanks!). I personally spent a lot of time in the mornings and evenings on the back porch where I was visited by deer and once a herd of female elk. (I will try to post photos). My only complaint about the pond was how active the male bullfrogs were (not really a complaint). We never used the front door key; it was more convenient to enter and exit through the garage using the key pad. There was also a new gas grille which I hoped I cleaned well after using. Again, all was perfect and no issues whatsoever.

Owner's Response: Mark I am so happy that you enjoyed your getaway at the Lake House. I have seen many elk tracks in the field and around the pond but have yet to see one. Yay! The place is very special and it sounds like it was a good fit for you. It is my favorite of the three Distinctive Destinations. I find it so peaceful...
