THE LAKEHOUSE HISTORY
rs=w-400,cg-true.webp
It's all about relationship

My father, Harold Larsson, was a college professor, astronomer and physicist.  Just before my mother's death he began looking at places near my home in Bandon to purchase.

 

Dad walked into the Lakehouse and after 20 minutes he asked, "Who should I write the check to?" It was a decision he never regretted.

 

For the first 12 years he came for a month at a time.  I established and managed it as a vacation rental so it would pay all expenses for him when he wasn't here. As his health declined due to degenerative spinal stenosis, he needed assistance with daily activities. We both moved up to the Lakehouse where I, and a couple of family members, cared for him for 7 years.  He spent the reminder of his life here. 

 

Not a day went by when he would say, "I am so lucky to live here."

 

"Hal of Floras Lake", as he would jokingly refer to himself, lived for almost 99 years.  He did a lot of good for a lot of people and made a positive impact on most people he encountered.  He lived a full life of Gratitude.

 

We hope that all of our guests love and enjoy our home as much as we do. 

 
 ABOUT US
About Us.jpg

I have managed our home as a vacation rental since 1999.  At the time we were the only vacation rental home on the Lake.  I took it off the rental market for 7 years while I cared for my dad at home.  Our home has been well loved.  In 2018 I completely remodeled our home with new kitchen, baths, floor coverings and outside deck.

Professionally I am a Family Consultant and Transitional Life Coach.  My daughter Michaela and I have a business, Transitional Wisdom Inc. We share a vision for healthy aging and dying well.  We have a perfect partnership, bringing our individual styles, talents and education to serve families.

Through coaching, family consulting, and emotional estate planning, we help our clients and their families come together to make unified decisions, have empowered conversations, and release any unresolved family issues so their loved one can age intentionally, maximize their independence, and complete their life peacefully.

Find out more about how you and your family can come to the Floras Lakehouse Vacation Rental for an family retreat where Michaela and I design and facilitate an individualized program specific to meet the needs of your family as you plan for healthy aging and family caregiving if your loved one facing age-related decline or a life-threatening illness.

Lovely Getaway Spot

Apr 2019

Amy T.

This spacious, comfortable house was the perfect spot for our family get-together. We all enjoyed kayaking off the private dock and eating and playing games together in the open kitchen/dining area. Bedrooms on the third and first floor provided private refuge for those needing extra rest away from the activity. Beach access nearby was an extra bonus.

 

Beautiful Place

Beautiful House

July 2019

Ale, Buenos Aires, Argentina

Beautiful house! Beds were very comfortable. We had everything to enjoy our stay. Amazing views from everywhere. Lots of space. Our girls loved the game (Website hidden by Airbnb) could have stayed forever enjoying the lake view from the balcony seats. Morning Star is the best. Will be back.

Reta, Gladstone, OR

What a great place for families and friends to get together. The house was amazing, and the view so peaceful. The rooms are spacious and well-spaced. The kitchen fully functional and easy to use. We loved the lake and kayaks. Morning Star was great. Our only regret is that we didn't book it more days, really hated to leave. Thanks again, Reta

Our whole family really enjoyed this lovely place on Floras Lake for our annual gathering on the coast. We were so happy to be in this beautifully appointed property - and the river otter down at the dock when we arrived was a surprise bonus!

AMAZING

This house was great! Clean and bright. You can tell a lot of heart was put into the house. The ac units were only in the living room and basement, which is just something to be aware of. Luckily it cooled off enough at night to not need them. Other than that, the trip was AMAZING! If I’m back in the area I would rent It again. Kayaks were fun! House is close to beach. Bandon’s downtown is fun and Edgewater restaurant was delicious! Stay here!

Perfect Lake House and Ocean Coast Experience in One

Our family of six really enjoyed our stay (four kids ages 9-14, plus two adults). We stayed for several days. My husband used the WiFi to work during the days, while the kids and I went adventuring. My brother rented another place a few docks down and we would paddle between residences. We walked to the closest beach the first day (Boice-Cope Park). It was about a mile. We preferred to drive after that. :) We could have paddled to the beach as well, but it was pretty windy and the part of the lake closest to the beach had waves that were a little too big for the kayaks. (Our little cove was just fine for the kids to paddle.) The beach is pretty steep, but at low tide there are these cool mini-sandcliffs. My kids had fun sand-surfing down them. There are also larger sandstone cliffs if you continue walking down the beach. The house itself was perfect. Plenty of beds and space for everyone. The kitchen is newly updated and had all the pots and pans we needed for cooking. They even had crab crackers (we went crabbing in Port Orford one day). The bathrooms were also recently remodeled and very comfortable. This was my kids favorite family trip this year. Lots of skipping stones, paddling, and great memories! Would come again!

 

Peaceful stay on the lake

This home is so beautiful, you can tell the owner loves it. It's located right on the lake and you can view the lake from almost every window. Lots of space and nice updated touches throughout the home with nice wood paneling throughout. The neighborhood was very quiet and there is a lot to walk around and see.
