About Nate and Kendra Lindell

Native Oregonian Nate Lindell and his wife Kendra, have spent countless hours on Detroit Lake and in the neighboring forests and invite you to experience one of Oregon's great natural treasures—beautiful Detroit Lake. In fact, Nate proposed to Kendra right on the shores of this very lake. When Nate is not enjoying the surroundings of the wild frontier, he is hard at work pioneering the quality assurance engineering field. They love Oregon and love sharing it with others even more.

Nate and Kendra Lindell purchased this lodge in 2007

Why Nate and Kendra Lindell chose Willamette Valley Oregon

This property was designed and custom built by my family in 2007 as a family vacation retreat. Detroit Lake holds a special place in my heart and I welcome you to share this experience and love for the wilderness with us.

Great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The cabin was clean and spacious. Some small annoyances but nothing that would keep us from renting it again.

Really enjoyed my stay here. A few hiccups when arriving but the property owners helped me immediately with any problems. It was super nice and everything I needed for my weekend retreat. I definitely want to return here again!

This place is sweet

  • 4 of 5

So we got there and there was a lot of snow built up so we couldn't get all the way up the driveway, but we did get about half way up to walk our stuff inside. The entry was easy but the alarm went off...we immediately called Kendra and it was remotely turned off. This was the first of a few times we had to call and they were totally accommodating. Plenty of firewood to use we just had to get it out from under the snow. Great hosts!!!

Beautiful house, beautiful master bedroom and shower, lovely upstairs rooms and loft, fantastic great room. Wifi spotty, but we brought games to play. This was a great escape for the holidays with my family. We'd stay again!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous weekend here! The house was really roomy for all our kids and grandkids and the fireplace was amazing! The owners had wood delivered for us and we had a fire most of the time we were there. Just had a lot of fun going to the snow for our annual Christmas tree hunt and then coming here for the night. It's a very inviting house for family getaways! Our grandkids loved it and so did we! It was a little tough getting out at 11AM with all the kids, but we did our best! Hope to come back next year!!

This is the second time we've stayed at Nate and Kendra's cabin and it was just as perfect as before. Wonderful accommodations for multiple people while still being a home rather than a bunch of beds packed into rooms as some rentals can be. Kitchen well stocked and ready for guest cooking needs. Perfect place to relax with friends and enjoy the outdoors!

We were super excited to have a house on the lake and out in the woods. We wanted a place where our kids and dog could run and play and not bother others. Before booking I confirmed with the owners that this home would meet those request. We were told yes so we booked it for a last minute trip. We arrived to a home near the water but not on the lake like I thought or hoped for. There were also two very close neighbors and the home backed up to the highway and there was no fence. So letting my kids and dogs go run was not really an option. As others noted in reviews you do have to climb a large and rather steep set of stairs. The home is beautiful and very well laid out. We loved the big open kitchen, the deck looking out into the trees and all the great windows. There was way more space then we needed and it would work for a few families to go and enjoy. However the home is in desperate need of maintenance and a good cleaning. When we first arrived we found a rather messy garage. Then I headed up stairs and it didn't look like the carpet on the steps had not been vacuumed for some time. The walls were dirty and in need of some repairs. The floors in the kitchen had a lot of old food and pet hair especially at the edges. The garbage disposal was leaking and it appears that it was an ongoing issue. There was a pan under the sink with gross slimy water and cleaning supplies floating in it. There were no extra garbage bags in the house. The rug in the living room was dirty (food stuck in it) and stained. There was a tote with laundry soap and it had leaked and soap was all over. The pots and pans in the cabinets looked like they had just been tossed in. The BBQ was rather gross so we decide to cook inside. Some appliances really didn't work and several of the blinds didn't open. I let the owners know and they did say that they were going to head up to address the issues and that the cleaning crew was an on going issue. It was just a little frustrating that we paid $100 cleaning deposit and then I spent a lot of time cleaning, while on vacation and my husband fixed the leaking disposal. We left the home much cleaner then it was when we arrived. If the home was claned and maintained better we would return. But probably for a winter trip since its really not on the lake and there is no view of it from the house.
