McCall House Rental Photos and Description
House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 11)
Escape to the mountains for fresh air, pastoral tree-lined views, and fun near the water at Shep's Hideout. This kid-friendly vacation home in scenic McCall has a great outdoor entertaining space, a playhouse for the little ones, tastefully designed interior, and lots of comfortable, easy charm.
The living room, dining room, and kitchen are all open, letting conversation flow freely throughout this downstairs space. Brown plush sofas and extra chair seating are arranged thoughtfully, with a wood-burning fireplace providing warmth and ambiance, and a wall-mounted, flat screen TV with DVD player for entertainment. Accent walls are painted throughout the house for pops of stylish color and lots of windows bathe this space in natural light. It's a relaxing room to settle in for the night under blankets, snack on popcorn, and watch movies in front of the fire.
The dining table seats five and there is additional seating at the breakfast bar. For meal preparation, you'll find everything you need in this nicely-designed kitchen, including a dishwasher for easy cleanup. The chef and their helpers can gather around the kitchen island counter and dice carrots, toss the salad, or glaze muffins.
After dinner, head out to the deck right off the dining room, to relax, breathe in that crisp Idaho air, and listen to the river run nearby. Make a dessert by roasting marshmallows around the fire pit and assemble s'mores just like you used to do at camp. The hand-crafted playhouse is right off the deck, so the adults can talk and socialize while keeping an eye on the kids. There's also a gas grill on the large deck, so on nice afternoons gather the family for an outdoor barbecue with cold beer, iced tea, burgers, chicken, fish or even grilled vegetables.
Also downstairs is a full bathroom and laundry room with a washer and dryer, so no one will run out of clean, warm socks while on vacation. A bedroom on this level has a queen bed, bright red comfortable bedding, and a bedside table with lamp - perfect for staying up late to finish that one book you've always wanted to read. A second downstairs bedroom has one queen sized bed and one full bed for sharing and talking late into the night.
If you have any work to do, head upstairs to a loft outfitted with two desks with a view. If needed, you can set up your laptop and check email with the WiFi, while looking out the large windows at the woodsy view. If more sleeping space is necessary, there's also a futon up in the loft.
The master bedroom has a king sized, traditional poster bed, built-in wall drawers for storage, and an attached full bathroom. Down the hall, another upstairs bedroom also features built-in drawers, a closet full of children's toys, and two full sized bed and bathroom. Including all four bedrooms and the futon loft, this house will comfortably sleep 11 guests.
This peaceful setting is only an eight minute drive or short bike ride to charming downtown McCall. For a day of family fun, visit the Central Idaho Historical Museum, followed by shopping, sightseeing, and a pizza feast overlooking Payette Lake at Toll Station Pizza's deck. In nice weather, golfing is also close by at the McCall Golf Course, and a full day's adventure of hiking, biking, fishing, boating and more can be found at Ponderosa State Park, less than 15 minutes away.
Late fall, winter and early spring, this hideout is a wonderful home base for winter sports enthusiasts. For downhill skiing and snowboarding, Brundage Mountain Resort is less than 10 miles away, and the nearby national forests and state parks boast miles and miles of backcountry trails for snowmobiling, snow shoeing, and cross-country skiing.
Whether you spend your time golfing, fishing, skiing, brewery-hopping downtown, or just hanging out at home on the outdoor wonderful deck, you and your family will love staying at this quiet and serene cabin in the woods.
