If your getaway plans are torn between log cabin and lake, no worries! This charming vacation rental cabin with room for six, just two minutes from picturesque Donnelly, might be the answer. Poised in a stand of trees on one of the three northern peninsulas that reach into beautiful Cascade Lake, Dawn Drive Family Cabin is an irresistible mix of mountain ambiance and lakefront living! Not only is a private community beach a quarter-mile away, this cozy home is a doorway to the beauty, abundance, and recreational bonanza that comes with its proximity to Boise National Forest, the Payette River, and, of course, Cascade Lake.
Enveloped in warm hardwoods from floor to ceiling, this comfortable and spacious vacation rental cabin has an integrated living space, and is the perfect place for family members to reconnect, away from work-a-day cares and obligations. On chilly nights, share family tales as you huddle around the unique, cast iron stove. Or - for more amenities - head upstairs to the loft with your DVDs where you can enjoy a flick from the comfort of one of six, squishy beanbag chairs. And don't forget your star charts! Through the telescope in the loft, you can enjoy a starry sky uncompromised by city lights. Evenings are also a good time to grab the marshmallows and head out to the fire pit for some campfire fun!
Meals are an important part of a vacation experience, and this charming vacation rental cabin has an open kitchen that makes them easy. Along with the stove, fridge, microwave and coffeemaker you'd expect in a great getaway like this, you'll find plenty of pots, pans, dinnerware, and cutlery. Whether it's pancakes or pot roast your chef is serving up, settle into the cushioned chairs around the dining table with room for six. Five more can cozy up to the counter on stools. Out on the big deck in back is a gas grill and outdoor furniture including comfortable, padded chairs. Weather permitting, test your barbecue skills and enjoy a meal out among the trees.
This endearing vacation rental cabin has two bedrooms, one with a king bed, the other a queen. There's a crib for the baby and access to the upper deck where Mom or Dad can slip out for a breath of fresh air! Toddlers have a bed just right for them too, and the sofa folds out for that extra person. The main bathroom is charming and continues the rustic theme with rough-hewn walls, molding, and cabin-type fixtures. There's also a half-bath.
With Cascade Lake on three sides, Dawn Drive is an anglers' boaters' paradise! In season, fish for salmon, steelhead, rainbow trout, bass, catfish or perch. Boat owners will find numerous places to launch. Plenty of opportunities on dry land as well: Hikers have their choice of one-day or multiple-day trails in Ponderosa State Park or Cascade State Park (14 miles to the north) and Cascade State Park (16 miles to the south). There are 8 golf courses within 3 and 14 miles from the center of Donnelly. Osprey Meadows Resort (3 miles away) is the closest. Jug Mountain and McCall are within 9 miles. Cascade and Whitetail are the farthest at 14 miles.
Huckleberries thrive in the cool climate around Donnelly. Residents celebrate this abundant fruit with a festival, held the beginning of August when the plump berries are at their ripest. There's music in Donnelly too. Come to nearby, historic Roseberry in July and take part in the Music Festival and Arts and Crafts Faire. Whenever you come to Donnelly, consider this charming vacation rental cabin, ideally situated to land and lake, and all the great things to do and see in the Cascade Lake area!

We loved the location and the cabin was peaceful and wooded with a sense of space from the neighbors. The cabin was very comfortable and had all the kitchen and other supplies we needed. Quiet and relaxing! The 4 of us were very comfortable, the girls loved having their own space upstairs. Thank you!
The cabin was very clean. Had everything needed in the kitchen to cook with. I suggest bringing your water with you as theirs tastes like sulfur. Plenty of beds for 8-10 people. Wood burning stove works well, but upstairs is a bit toasty at times. Would definitely do it again.
The cabin is in a convenient location as it's a short drive to McCall. It was a quiet neighborhood and the cabin was well kept and clean. I would recommend it to anyone wanting a nice place to stay in the Donnelly/McCall area. It was nice that we could have the dogs stay with us, too. Having grown up in McCall, I had a bit of an advantage when it came to places to go/things to do in the area. While there on this trip we paddled a canoe up the NF Payette River above Payette Lake, drove up to Brundage Mtn Lookout, hiked to Boulder Lake to do some fishing, enjoyed the Gold Fork Hot Springs, and checked out the bats exiting the colony at the Tamarack Falls bridge to the east of Donnelly and the cabin one night after sunset (the kids loved it). The Vacasa website, reservation process, check-in, check-out were all easy!
I loved everything about this cabin. It is really family friendly the kids had such a blast. The lake was only a walk away. The campfire pit in the back was awesome for the perfect smores. The atmosphere was really clean and really nice. We took a nice walk on the trail. Everything was perfect! thank you for a good time!
We had a great time at this cabin! It is decorated very cute. It was nice and clean. Beds were comfy and sheets/towels nice quality and clean. Plenty of room for two adults and two kids. Could have accommodated two more kids without a problem. Would definitely recommend to those that are looking for a quiet, relaxing yet conveniently located weekend get away!
