About the property

Cabin, 5 Bedrooms + Loft, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 11-15)

Rustic Luxury is a three-story, 3000 sq. foot, luxury cabin at Cascade Lake. It is located three tenths mile from the Boulder Creek boat ramp. The driveway is large enough for many cars, a boat trailer or snowmobile trailer. Summer activities include mountain biking, hiking, fishing, horseback riding, zipline at Tamarack, a round of golf at one of the five courses in the valley and all the water sports you can handle. In the winter, there is skiing, snowboarding, winter playland in McCall, snowmobiling, and sledding. Year round enjoy the soothing hot springs at Gold Fork.

The interior is spacious and comfortable. You will notice it is rustic yet luxurious with all the modern amenities and upgrades such as two media rooms, two utility rooms, granite counter tops, travertine master bath, and all new upgraded appliances. The loft is a great place to relax, watch a movie or play games and it overlooks the living area. For those cold winter nights, cozy up to the fireplace. There is also a romantic gas stove in the master suite. This is a cabin you will want to come back to again and again. It truly is a retreat. For hot summer nights, turn on the air-conditioner or relax on the wrap around mid-level porch.

The exterior features full landscaping, concrete driveway, wrap-around mid-level balcony, private backyard picnic table, path to a firepit fully stocked with chairs and firewood for your marshmallow enjoyment!

We are located 90 miles from Boise, Idaho, and just minutes from the new Tamarack Resort. We are only 15 miles from McCall and beautiful Payette Lake. Brundage Mountain Ski Resort is about 40 minutes away.

About The Owner

We didn't just buy this cabin, we built it and decorated with our hands and heart. My husband and I married in 2004. We wanted a vacation spot that we could come back to again and again. At the time, he had 4 children and I had one, we built the house large enough to accommodate them and the friends they may want to bring. We also planned to have lots of visitors. We enjoy sharing our home with others and love to see what you write in the guest book provided!

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2006

Why The Owner chose Donnelly

Donnelly is such a beautiful area. Close to Lake Cascade and the Tamarack Resort we saw this area as a prime investment that we could also enjoy ourselves. We also love to bring our horses up to the area and ride the Paddy Flat Hills or the backside of Tamarack and look over the Lake. It is breathtaking!

What makes this cabin unique

There is so much to do in Donnelly! Skiing, sledding, hiking, horse back riding, hot springs, hunting/fishing, ice skating, historical scenery and so much more. It is a hidden paradise. We hope you visit and enjoy your stay. Our cabin is only .3 miles from the boat dock and beach area. We have a private forest back yard with a fire pit, large surround deck on the middle floor and pool table and darts in the garage. There are plenty of spaces for many people to spread out and hang out! Enjoy an incredible view of Tamarack mountain and say hello to neighbors on their way to the beach in the summer or snowmobiling past the house to the frozen lake in the winter. This cabin will help you create lifetime memories.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We brought our family, our boat and our friends. We barbequed out on the deck and watched the kids take our four wheeler back and forth to the lake. The best part was the view of the fireworks off the lake from the deck! Awesome. We will come back again.

Perfect Family Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

12 members of my family were able to go spend some "adult" time away from home and enjoyed ourselves so much. It was a relaxing time, and the home is GEORGEOUS!! The guys especially liked the pool table, and some of us got our "1st" opportunity to play!

A Wonderful Time

  • 5 of 5

My twin, our husbands, our brother, nephews and nieces , spouses and kids, had a wonderful weekend at Rustic Luxury! The Fall weather was perfect, the Lake beautiful, and the "cabin" delightful. What a great place for all ages! The owner's have thought of everything! So many things are provided for folks of all ages to do! It is so nicely furnished, and beautifully decorated. It was so much fun to see what theme each room was decorated in! So much thought has been given to detail. Fun for everyone! Just a super place, with a rental agent that see's that everything is perfect for you.

Great Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were looking for a place with lots of room to spread out. We have teenagers and young children (the two don't mix well.) We found this home to be perfect! With 3 stories and 2 entertainment rooms, we were all very comfortable when we found our selves housebound due to an unexpected snow/sleet storm. We will visit this home again and recommend it to others. Thanks for a great memory!

We stayed in this house for Mother's Day. The furnishings and amenities were great quality. The firepit out back was a lot of fun and so close to the lake! We will be back for sure!

Summertime - The boat dock and park is a very short walk! Tamarack has mountain biking trails and a zipline course. Wintertime - There is nearby Elk feeding that starts mid December to early spring. This is an amazing experience using horse and sleigh pulling loads of hay and visitors. You wil never get this close to wild elk.
