Guestbook comments from the owner
We want you to know what a great time we had last week in your charming cabin by this wonderful lake. We definitely hope that we can come back some time. Our week exceeded all expectations. By the end of the week, we even caught several fish.

Having grown up on a lake in northern Minnesota, when Burt Butler moved from North Carolina to Idaho in 1993 to work for the state court system, one of his dreams was to find secluded lakefront property that his four children could enjoy, and ultimately build a cabin that the family could consider a comfortable second home. That dream came true in 1998 when Burt Butler found a unique secluded lakefront property on a peninsula with a gentle shoreline and spectacular fishing with no motor boats allowed on the lake. In the Fall of 2001 the elegant and rustic cabin was started and finished in June 2002.

Burt Butler purchased this cabin in 2001

Our secluded vacation property, with close proximity to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, is only a 75 minute drive from our home in Idaho Falls, and offered year round recreation opportunity for our family. Swimming, canoeing, fishing and outdoor fires under the stars in the summer, Fall colors and 4 wheeling in the sand dunes adjacent to the lake, and early winter ice skating, and when the snow gets deep great cross country skiing and snow mobiling and the enjoyment of a wood stove.

Peace, quiet, fires outside and inside, barbecue on the deck and dutch oven cooking, great fishing, wildlife variety from frogs, beavers, trumpeteer swans, birds of all varieties including bald eagles, moose, deer, to a sighting of a wolf.

I would love to retutrn to this cabin that is really a huge beautiful clean house on a peninsula. We enjoyed it's accessibility to all the awesome national treasures(Yellowstone, The Grand Tetons and Island Park) Theonly problem was that the DVD player was not working, so I would bring my own for the kids.

Great Family Time For the 82 year old to the 12 year old!!

My husband randomly found this cabin online and luckily we were able to book it the same week we had already planned our vacation for. We got to have a great week with three generations under one roof. The owner was so accommodating I was able to have my grandma's oxygen delivered to the cabin and give my grandparents a get a way they didn't think was possible for them anymore based on the extremely high flow of oxygen my grandmother is on (14-16 Liters). We were able to fish, kayak, canoe, and row our hearts out on the lake. We got to have all the modern amenities of home, like running water, toilets and showers not to mention a kitchen ready for us to cook in. My 12 year old son and his best friend caught turtles and frogs by day and played battleship and chess (which came with the cabin) by night. My 16 year old daughter and her friend chased sunrays and fish, both of which they caught! The kids, my husband, and I got to enjoy hearing great stories from our grandparents about their youth. This cabin looks nice in the photos but the reality when you walk inside is more then the photos portray, they just don't do the cabin justice. Needless to a great time was had by ALL.

Wonderful time

  • 5 of 5
What a great cabin, clean, comfortable and the surrounding area is amazing. While we were there we saw: a Blue Heron, Osprey, a Bald eagle, a Golden Eagle, flocks of pelicans, geese and cedar wax wings. The fishing was excellent we kept a dozen many over 24” long—very tasty. While we were at the cabin we witnessed and electrical storm off in the horizon that was incredible and one night watched the most remarkable sunset. The peace and quiet was wonderful and exactly what I needed. Thanks for sharing!

We had a great time

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay. Caught a bunch of fish, explored the lake, enjoyed watching the hummingbirds, and really enjoyed the cabin. Tough to get to, but it's worth the trip!

Relaxing weekend with family

  • 5 of 5
Burt's cabin was perfect! The cabin was clean and had everything we needed. We caught about 20 fish a day on the lake, also found frogs and turtles. We had a peaceful, relaxing few days and can't wait to go back again! Thanks Burt for sharing your place!
