About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 5-7)

This is the place where you want to be! You are right in the center of Tamarack Resort and you can walk to everything. The kids are on their own to come and go and do what they want while you do what you want. A true vacation! In the winter you can ski right out the back door onto the lift and then stop back for lunch in your own cottage and still go out for another session.

With seven lifts and 2800 vertical feet and an average snowfall of over 300 inches, Tamarack has 42 ski runs to challenge even the best of the best. For the free rider, Tamarack’s 22' Olympic-sized Super pipe and two terrain parks offer unlimited adrenaline rushes. Snowmobiling is incredible here. Explore Idaho's back country on the groomed trails of the spectacular Payette River Mountains.

In the summer you can ride the cottage bike trail to the Challenge Park or to the Jump Park or ride the exhilarating 30 miles of IMBA–designed trails that twist, turn, roll, and drop through Tamarack's forested mountain and meadow trails. Ride the lift for 12 miles of twisting downhill single-track with exhilarating rock drops and jumps. The meadow trails have more than 18 miles of awesome single- and double-track near creeks and rolling meadows.

You can walk to the village with all the restaurants and shops or to the lodge, spa and golf course for a quick round of golf at Osprey Meadows Golf Course. This course was awarded the Best New Public Course in 2006 in the USA! It is awesome. For the golf enthusiast there are five championship golf courses within a short drive. Jug Mountain Golf Course (20 mins. away) just received the award for 2nd Best New Public Course in 2008.

On the adventurous side, don't forget to make a reservation for a zip line tour. Explore Tamarack Mountain in a unique, thrilling, action packed, Zip line tour. Experience the rush and listen to the cable sing as you 'zip' over 4,425 feet of incredible terrain. You'll descend down 8 different zip lines, soaring over creeks, canyons, and forest as you come to rest on a platform high above the ground in a majestic ponderosa pine.

Also, Idaho is the whitewater capital of the USA. There are numerous companies that will guide you on local rivers. This is a breathtaking experience not to be missed! From Class I float trips to running the wild rapids of a Class IV river, there is something for everyone. The scenery is absolutely gorgeous and the experience is priceless.

Tamarack Resort operates a full service marina on Lake Cascade where they offer a large selection of boat rentals: water-ski and wakeboard boat, pontoon boats, fishing boats, kayaks, Hobie Cats, and sailboats. Don't forget Happy Hour on Tuesday nights on the waterfront.

I hope I have peeked your interest. There is so much to do at Tamarack, it is an outdoorsman's dream. This is why we chose to own a place here. Now it is your chance to experience all of this! Give us a call or email us now. I promise you, you will be glad you did. More than likely you'll fall in love with the place and come back again and again!

About Scott Lamming

HELLO and WELCOME from the Lamming Family!

Thank you for viewing our website and if you choose to stay in our home in Tamarack we are sure you won't be disappointed. We lead a very active lifestyle and enjoy the outdoors very much. Tamarack and the surrounding area offers so much to do no matter what season it is!

Scott Lamming purchased this house in 2004

Why Scott Lamming chose Southwestern Idaho

We really enjoy snowboarding and skiing which was our initial attraction for a ski in/ ski out slopeside home. We have since discovered snowmobiling as a great family sport. During the summer we have enjoyed the golfing, zip lining, fishig, white water rafting, hiking and photography. The natural beauty of this area is unsurpassed!

What makes this house unique

Our home is centrally located in Tamarack Resort so once you arrive you can walk to everything, I'm not kidding...really! We love lounging in our own private hot tub on the back deck listening to Rock Creek gurgle down the mountain. It is a great place to unwind and just plain RELAX!

BEST COTTAGE IN TAMARACK RESORT!!!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a long weekend getaway and it was FABULOUS! This cottage is centrally located to everything in the resort. You can walk to the lodge or the village or jump in the spa on your own back deck! The view off the deck is beautiful with trees and wildflowers (other cottages look out to the parking lot of the lodge). There are upgraded audio/visual equipment in the cottage including the all important FREE WIFI. The owner was helpful in answering all of our questions and helping us book the cottage. The check-in was streamlined with the front desk at the lodge. Everything was super easy, clean and relaxing as it should be! I know where I will stay every time I wanna a great getaway.....Cottage 18 !!!

Fantastic location!

  • 4 of 5

We booked the cottage for Huckleberry Jam at Tamarack, and the location was super convenient! The only things I could say that we needed were more/varied pots, pans and utensils, and possibly some spices, etc., as I've seen at other VRBO's. The cottage was very nice, and the hot tub was great as well!

Owner's Response: We are glad you had a great time at Cottage 18! It truly is the best location in Tamarack Resort. We have never had an issue with pots/pans/utensils so I am curious as to what you were looking for as we always aim for 5 star performance. Perhaps something has been lost or moved to another unit during a potluck dinner.

The best rental!

  • 5 of 5

This rental was a gem in every way. Two separate quiet quarters, one upstairs and one down. Well furnished, quiet, good hot tub - everything to make the traveler comfortable. The reconstruction of the actual lodge is distant and does not interfere with the enjoyment of #18. There is a small market nearby. We rented a pontoon one afternoon - so very fun.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review! It sounds like you had a fantastic time enjoying the beautiful outdoors and nature that surrounds Tamarack Resort! At the end of the day there is nothing better than sitting in the hot tub listening to the gurgle of Rock Creek gazing at all the stars!

Beautiful White Christmas!

  • 5 of 5

I have always dreamed of a white Christmas. Boy did we get it, over 7 feet of snow in December alone! It was stunningly gorgeous and we had so much fun at Tamarack. Cottage 18 truly is the place to be! It is right in the middle of everything and it has everything you need. 5 stars from us!

Cute cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Our goal was to relax and take a couple of days to unwind. This cottage was perfect for us. Nicely furnished with comfortable beds and great room furniture. Hot tub was a great way to relax before bedtime. Private and easily accessible.
