Getting Back to Fishhawk Lake--Can't Wait!!

Getting Back to Fishhawk Lake--Can't Wait!!

Towards the end of 2016, I was approached to sell this cabin on the canal at Fishhawk Lake in Birkenfeld OR. Many many years ago, my husband and I were going to make an offer on it and about a New York second before that, the current seller had made an offer and it was accepted. 

Fast forward about 13 years. I walked into this cabin and fell in love all over again. I went home and told my husband about it going back on the market. Since we were now debt-free, we were looking for a write-off and he was looking at this as an investment property, while giving me a chance to get back to the lake. Talk about doing the happy dance!!

We will be closing sometime in early February and things are clicking along nicely. I helped get the existing  seller's pontoon sold to the lake, as we already own a nice pontoon that seems to just be moving up and down Beach Drive...this will be its 4TH LOCATION on a dock along Beach Drive! 

Our pontoon on our lot for sale 9857 Beach Drive (The lot that this is located on is for sale: 9857 Beach Drive Birkenfeld, Or MLS#16095877 waterfront, new two-tiered dock, beautiful views of Fishhawk Lake, existing new Hickory barn shed, driveway and water hookup installed. $79,000). 

This cabin will be my office at Fishhawk Lake, where I can meet buyers and sellers in a comfy true log cabin atmosphere...just the ticket to give buyers a feel for what they can experience as new owners of a home at or on Fishhawk Lake. What could be better?? 

It is steps away from the community lodge, just over the bridge and across from the tennis court. With an extra lot, I'll have plenty of room for parking. I'll even have this for family and  friends to stay in if there is overflow, since we only have one extra bedroom for guests in our ranch home,  a 1/2 mile away on Fishhawk Road. 

February is also a time at Fishhawk Lake when we see a preview of warmer weather, a sneak peek if you will, of spring. It is often just a small tease and then we go back to winter for a bit. (Check out the link above for a flavor the Seasons of Fishhawk Lake). 

 Stay tuned for more pictures of this darling abode on Fishhawk Lake and an update as to when I will officially have my office there! 

In the meantime, if you are clamoring to visit Fishhawk Lake and look at properties, give me a call for a tour!

WOW! Even though I was ready to pack my bags and make an offer sight unseen, I'm very happy for you! What a great office view and a great get-away for any reason at all! 

Come winter, spring, summer, and fall you'll be doing the happy dance many times over!!! I am happy for you!

Doug Dawes you are SO right! Who knew that some 13+ years later, we might have this? 

Dick Greenberg gotta say that I have totally missed having a "home" on the lake, even tho we have a vacant lot...just not the same.  As Larry said, this will give potential buyers a real feel of what the lake is like. 

Tahnk you for your unbounding enthusiasm, Patricia Feager! And I am practicing perfecting my happy dance daily!

13 years was a long time to wait but Happy Days are here again and you're unstoppable when it comes to making dreams come true! 

I wish you an abundance of great opportunities to see more, do more, and be more creative in making this cabin on the lake one of your favorite places to be every day while working! And when you're not working, complete peace and relaxation with many beautiful visitors from nature.

Kathleen Daniels if we get out of the way, the universe always lines up for us! 

Sharon Lee you know how important this is to my heart...as well as for future clients. I'm baaaaaaack!!

Beth Atalay and that was my "phrase" for years and then we moved to our ranch a bit over a year ago. My presence isn't as strong, persay, in some people's minds, but this is certainly a tipping point, thanks for being excited for me!

Yolanda Cordova-Gilbert and here I thought last year  was my year! Good to know there's more greatness ahead--for you as well??!!!

Alesha A. Wilson the other photos are all interior shots, but I can't get them on this computer, darn it! My camera doesn't "talk" to this old desktop, and the photos are on my laptop which is in the shop. Hopefully soon!

One of the things that is cool about this cabin, Patricia Feager (amongst many) is that the energy is really sweet. Long ago, the wife (no longer living) used to play harp on the covered deck out front in this photo. I would hear it through the trees because in the summer months it all fills in and this one is tucked away, not easily seen. Counting the days!

Brian England it DOES sound a bit like a model home--interesting viewpoint!

And what a place for my friends to stay, Joanna Cohlan like someone I know??!! I think George might be wooed by it, whaddya think?

Dorie Dillard ya know, I commented and I see that it didn't post--sorry about that! I'll bet you could do an incredible happy dance! And yes, karma, and timing and patience--all good things come to those who are in alignment with the universe. Thanks, girlfriend, for being happy for me!

Rene Fabre oh, how I miss you my friend!  I have pics once I can get my laptop back in working order! I can't figure out how to do a Plugin for Ribbet on my old desktop that I'm currently using in the meantime. Where's my savvy tech buddy, Rene when I need him???

How did I miss this one? I'm so thrilled for you Gayle, and Larry. I know how you miss your beloved Lake, and this is a great compromise. Will you be spending the night there too? How fun, two homes just a half mile apart. You have the best of both worlds now... :) Yay for you. D
