Overview

Garden Valley House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Travel north from Boise about 30 miles, make the turn onto Banks Lowman Road, and ride the stunning, wooded crest of the hills in Boise National Forest for another 20 miles, or so, until you reach a sliver of verdant beauty known as Garden Valley. Just north of there, perched on a pine-covered hill overlooking the valley, is this gorgeous cabin with three bedrooms, loft, and room for seven where the views from the wrap-around windows and deck will make you feel as though you're out in the pines!

When you're in the spacious, open living space of Huckleberry House, you'll be trapped: captive to the thick forest that greets you through every window, and the gorgeous interior with its soaring, timber-trussed ceiling, elegant wood floor, and charming wood stove whose vent snakes up two stories into the roof. Bring your own DVDs to enjoy on the player, or borrow one from the library. There's a TV (sorry, no cable or internet). And for extra fun for the kids (or you!), indulge in a little friendly competition at the air hockey table up in the loft.

Huckleberry House has three bedrooms and a loft. Wake up in the king bed in the master bedroom and slip out onto the deck for a deep breath of fresh mountain air before heading out to breakfast. In the second bedroom, also on the main level, there's a full bed. It has access to the deck as well. The third bedroom also hold an additional full bed. And finally, head up to the loft where you'll not only find two smaller twin beds, but an air hockey table that just might keep the kids up a little later than you want.

A little to the south, down in the valley, is the little community of Crouch. There are four places to eat in Crouch, and much of their clientele consists of motorists and motorcyclists riding the popular Lowman/Banks loop who stop there for lunch. Otherwise, pack in your own stuff and make your meals right there in Huckleberry where you'll have a fully stocked kitchen with everything you need including a microwave, dishwasher,and a coffee grinder for those who like their beans freshly ground! Out on the deck is a gas grill if you're in the mood for barbecue.

Since Huckleberry House is located right by Boise National Forest, everything "outdoors" is right outside. The Middle Fork of the Payette River is close by where anglers - fly-fishers especially - can test their mettle against native bull trout, cutthroat, browns, and bulls. There's kayaking, rafting, and tubing in rapids that go all the way to class 5. Head out on a hike on one of 12 trails in the area. In winter, snow shoe-ers, snow mobilers, and cross country aficionados will have 250 miles of trails to explore. Or, check out some of the hot springs in the area.

So reserve Huckleberry House soon and enjoy the a relaxing getaway in the pristine, wooded hills of Boise National Forest!

Stained, dirty, old

  • 1 of 5

Arrived to a house looking nothing like the pictures. Torn, stained carpets in bedroom and stairs. Mold in windows, screens bent and open to let bugs in if you opened windows, no lock on sliding back door, old furniture with boards sticking through, old appliances with foil to hide stained burners, door to outside had window held in with duct tape, no outside chairs for enjoying outdoors, Bar-B-Que rusted out on inside, not useable. Dirty toilet, looked like diarrhea. Water not drinkable coming from sinks. We booked for 3 nights, left after one: of course, no offered refund.

my wife and I stay in a different cabin every year for our anniversary, this is by far our favorite. lots of room and no clutter. we have 3 kids under 3 and the house was perfect for our family. bring baby gates if you have small children to protect them from the stairs.

Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for letting us rent your cabin for a week. This was a real treat, and we were all sad to leave. The whole rental process was extremely easy, and the cabin was beautiful and well maintained. It was great to have the "cabin in the mountains" experience along with the ability to quickly run into Crouch to buy groceries or attend the Starlight Mountain Theatre.

Huckleberry house

  • 5 of 5

The kids loved the house with its loft and air hockey game. There was not much of a yard so there was no play outdoors, but the kids didnt care. I would have liked some lawn.

So much better than a hotel!!!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend is working in Crouch and I decided to visit him for the weekend. We could have gone somewhere and rented a hotel room but I thought it would be fun to get a cabin and relax away from all the hustle and bustle. The cabin was perfect! The large king size bed was super comfy and there were lots of little extras, like shampoo, soap, oil and some spices in the kitchen. All the little towns around are so cute and the locals are very friendly.We are definetly going to come back!

Labor Day weekend

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I and another couple spent the weekend at the Huckleberry house. We found it comfortable and it had everything we needed. We did some white water rafting, attended the Starlight Mountain theater, enjoyed the zipline and the hot springs in the area and it was a great place to relax after a busy day. Thank you for a comfortable place to stay :)
