Donnelly House Rental Photos and Description
House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
Nestled near the Idaho towns of Donnelly and McCall, this beautifully decorated one level, two bedroom Tamarack condo offers wonderful lodging to enjoy all that this stunning mountain area has to offer - a lush golf course, Lake Cascade, and a plethora of winter sports like downhill skiing, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing. In addition, you'll also enjoy great condo amenities like an outdoor pool, hot tub, and sauna (all open seasonally).
A large open living space features gleaming hardwood floors, lots of windows for natural light, and tall ceilings. After a day on the slopes, settle down into the stylish sofa cushions and enjoy a cozy fire in the gas fireplace. And if looking out the window and watching the snow fall down isn't enough entertainment, there's a TV with cable and a DVD player. Get comfortable and watch an after-dinner movie or load up the coffee table with snacks for everyone and view an afternoon game.
An open kitchen gives you all the appliances and gadgets to create great vacation meals or just heat up leftovers. If you do want to do some cooking or baking, there's plenty of room on the granite countertops to chop vegetables, grate cheese, or even roll out cookie dough. A breakfast bar provides space for a quick morning meal or a place to check email with the WiFi. For more meals, set the dining room table, light some candles, and open a bottle of wine to accompany your feast.
Just off the living room is a deck with lovely lake views. Find a nice, quiet space to enjoy your morning coffee, read a book in the late afternoon sun, or wind down in the evening with a glass of port.
For the lucky inhabitants, a beautiful master suite boasts a king-sized bed, balcony, and its own full bathroom with a separate walk-in shower and a large jetted tub. The equally nice, large second bedroom has two full-sized beds, luxurious furnishings, and a large window to let in lots of natural light. An additional full bathroom is easily share and has a tub/shower combo.
The two bedrooms and sleeper sofa will comfortably accommodate up to eight guests. And if you get dirty while out golfing, hiking, or snowshoeing, rest assured that there's a washer and dryer in the condo for warm, clean clothes anytime you need them.
With a great location right at the Tamarack Resort, you really can leave your car parked in the heated garage and not use it again until you leave! Within walking distance is a fitness center, seasonal pool and seasonal hot tubs, the Osprey Meadows Golf Course, biking and hiking trails, a zipline, skiing, and numerous water sports out on Lake Cascade.
If you do want to cast a bit of a wider net, Donnelly is only an eight mile drive east for the annual Huckleberry Festival in August or a soak in one of the local hot springs. A bit farther away at 20 miles is the larger resort town of McCall. With a number of restaurants, breweries, and a beautiful state park right on Payette Lake, a day trip to this nearby town is a worthwhile excursion.
Of course, you don't need to leave the Tamarack Resort area for a nice dinner out! Morels Restaurant and Lodge is a great option for fine dining, the Canoe Grill is open for lunch during the ski season, and the Seven Devils Pub is the place to go for a piping hot plate of nachos, microbrews, and even live music on occasion.
However, please note that due to a recent change in ownership, Tamarack amenities (including restaurants and community hot tubs) are only open seasonally, and may be closed down during weekdays during the winter. Be sure to visit Tamarack's website for specific details -- however, even a visit during a slower season or on closed days will be full of beautiful scenery and peaceful surroundings!
In winter, ski season kicks in around mid-December and runs through mid-March. Enjoy Alpine skiing, snowshoeing, and Nordic skiing, as well as an acclaimed "Sports School," that offers private and group ski lesson. All of this without even stepping foot off the resort!
Whether you come in the warmer months or visit in the winter, a stay at this Tamarack condo will truly charm your whole group.
