West Hagerman Lake House is a spacious 3200 sq. ft. home that sits just forty-five feet from crystal clear Hagerman Lake. Rebuilt in 2011, this home is perfect for a large family, group of couples, or a few siblings looking for a larger place to stay with their families. Not ideal for large groups as the neighbors are in close proximity along this beautiful lake and we ask that you please adhere to a 10:00 pm quiet time. The neighbors are very sensitive to loud noise.West Hagerman is gorgeous, roomy, and is open all year-round. Having modern amenities at your fingertips is just the tip of the iceberg. Lake views, wild-life, and water access make West Hagerman Lake House an ideal holiday retreat.
Hagerman Lake is one of three "Class A" lakes in the area due to its clear water and sand/stone bottom, Hagerman's 585 acres boast active loon nests, peace and quiet, and ample room for boating of any type. A private 55 foot dock, as well as a canoe, 2 kayaks and 2 paddleboards are provided for easy access to the lake. Much of the lake is surrounded by national forest and plays host to multiple islands, which are fun to boat around. If you are seeking more water fun, Hagerman Beach is just 1/2 mile away and there are 5 waterfalls within Iron county (30 minutes). Nature seekers will enjoy the many trails the national forest provides with views overlooking bluffs and lakes!
Inside, the main floor has an open-concept design providing seamless access to the kitchen and dining area, which seats 12 overlooking the lake. This space is charming for entertaining or watching little ones while you prepare dinner. A television and wood-burning fireplace creates a warm and inviting ambiance. The commons room upstairs and spacious bedrooms offer plenty of space for gathering, puzzles, playing board games, and enjoying the beautiful lake view. Charming decorations and original photography make this lake house feel like home. And just when you think it can't get any better, be sure to step outside after dark; the stars at night are simply magnificent.

Cleaning Fees Explained:
a, On Airbnb, our cleaning fee is combined with our accidental damage waiver, which protects you from any accidental damage (up to $1500) that may occur during your stay.
b. Even though our room rate is generally less per night during the Spring, Fall and Winter, no one wants the cleaning quality to decrease.
c. We expect our cleaners to clean at the same level they would for the Peak Summer season, year-round.
d. We pay our cleaners a living wage. They deep clean, wash all the linens and prep each bed, regardless of how many people are on the reservation.
a. When a couple is staying at a large house, and using only 25% of it, do they really want the home cleaned only 25%? Of course not.
b. When considering how many beds will be used, there are many variables-- Who are couples? Just friends? Family? Do all couples sleep in the same bed? Who snores?
c. Yes, sometimes the cleaner will make more money on your stay than the property owner or management company. It is essential to keep the space fresh and consistently cleaned throughout the year.
If you are truly just staying in as a couple at the West Hagerman Lake House, and will not need to venture upstairs, we can do so at a reduced cleaning fee upon request.
If we can, we will. It's the Freshwater Vacation Rentals positive guest experience mantra.
