About the property

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps - 16)

This is a perfect location for a retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life! Windancer Lodge is perfect for large families and reunions, or for a couple to snuggle up together in solitude. The lodge easily accommodates 16 people with plenty of rooms and beds for everyone. Each morning you’ll wake up to breathtaking views of Cascade Lake and West Mountain visible from the front side of the lodge. Enjoy relaxing dinners on the huge balcony overlooking a sleepy meadow on the backside. While enjoying the scenery, you are likely to spot a fox, rabbit or deer passing by. A large campfire area is available adjacent to the cabin for roasting marshmallows and enjoying the stars!

Comfortable and upscale furniture is found throughout the cabin. The main living room area accommodates two split areas. One can snuggle by the fire on one side, or sit and enjoy mountain and lake views on the other. The lodge has places of refuge for everyone! With large bedrooms, and a loft upstairs with books to read, everyone is sure to find a special spot for some privacy and solitude. Downstairs you’ll enjoy a game and entertainment room where children and adults can play with Nintendo games, watch DVD's, play air hockey, throw darts, or play pool; Another TV/DVD/VCR available in the Master Bedroom. New! Tv's with DirectTV in 2 upstairs bedrooms! Whether you’re looking to find solitude or entertainment, Windancer Lodge has it all!

Lake Cascade is just 250 yards from the front door. Just far enough away that young children can't wander into the water, but close enough for older kids to be able to walk back and forth at their leisure. Parking is no problem--there is room to park a boat, RV and several cars! Additional parking and public boat launch are just yards away at the public campground. You can even leave your boat in the only protected bay on the southern end of the lake and walk up to the cabin.

In the summer, the lake is often glassy making perfect conditions for water sports like wake boarding and skiing. The fishing is also fantastic! Be prepared to catch a perch a minute in the summer! Ride some of the best white water in the state just 15 minutes from our door. The Cabarton is a perfect family run and the Main Payette (30 min. away) is a bit more challenging in higher water.)

In the winter, the lake is blanketed with a solid layer of ice and snow making snowmobiling and ice fishing a must! Trails for motorcycles, mountain biking, horseback riding. snowmobiling are literally either out our back door or just up the street. Snowmobile across the lake and up West Mountain where there are miles of snowmobiling trails. Tamarack ski resort is only 30 minutes away. Brundage ski resort is 1 hour away. We have the best tubing hill just outside our back door! Or we can point you to an even bigger hill where we take our snowmobiles and haul kids up to the top for non stop fun!

Homebodies can stay indoors and enjoy Satellite DirecTV. Don't miss your favorite team! High Speed Wifi internet is also available for your convenience. Cell phone coverage is available too.

The Lodge is always clean and fully stocked. We are used to feeding large crowds with large pans, crock pots, etc. We have blenders, mixers, coffee pot, toaster oven, air popcorn popper, large griddles and more. Washer and dryer available too.

Come get away! Windancer Lodge is the perfect place to stay!

About Susan Mitchell Kerr

We love the outdoors! Snowboarding, wakeboarding, kiteboarding, windsurfing, etc.

Susan Mitchell Kerr purchased this cabin in 2001

Why Susan Mitchell Kerr chose Cascade

I grew up on a small private lake in Northern California and this is as close to the Huck Finn childhood that I remembered. It has it all. Rafting, kaying, canoeing, fishing, hunting, snowmobiling, sailing, boating, kiteboarding/skiing. Perfect sunsets. Campfires and warm cozy fires in the fall. It's the greatest.

What makes this cabin unique

Sledding out our back door. Snowmobiling right out our back door. Walking just a few hundred yards to the beach. Parking our boat in the cove. Hanging out with family. Puzzles by the fire. Family reunions with room for everyone. Wildlife. Fall walks. Eating out at local restaurants like 'Grammas' and the LakeView restaurant. Hunting and motorcycle riding on trails nearby. Horse back riding in the fall especially. White Water Rafting just 15 minutes away. You name it we've got it!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our Family Of DC, Nampa & Caldwell had a great reunion here at the Windancer Lodge! While we did not catch a single fish (we really tried), we nevertheless enjoyed the beautiful views, the comfortable accomomdations and the JOY of Family.

Sending our best to the Kerr Family and hoping you have many more fun times here in Cascade!

Wonderful place for large groups!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at Windancer Lodge for 3 nights, the end of Aug 2017. We had 9 family members there and had plenty of space, linens, kitchen supplies, and comfort, to enjoy reuniting with each other again! The Lake was a little farther away than we anticipated but still convenient enough to walk to. The kitchen has been pleasantly updated from the posted pictures and the entire place was very comfy! Thank you for sharing your beautiful place with us!

Thank you for your comments. Susie

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments. We have 4 Tvs in the cabin. Three are in bedrooms Two are large screen TVs, one of which is downstairs in the Game Room. We have chosen not to put a TV in the upstairs great room so our family and guests can take advantage of the opportunity to visit, play games, dance and enjoy the fire.

The home was very nice and would be perfect for family gatherings.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed having lunch and dinner out on the back deck. It was an easy walk down to a nice public beach area and the cove. We enjoyed having the opportunity to meet the owners.

Lovely Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Windancer Lodge is perfectly located near Lake Cascade with a gorgeous view of the water and mountains. We had early morning visitors of momma deer and her babies. The cabin had plenty of sleeping space for our family of 16 with a lovely large round table that seated 12 and a small table just right for our 4 smidgets!

The only thing that would be nice is a little grassy play area that children can play in next to the cabin.

We really loved it though. We can't wait for a return visit! My children want me to say that Lake Cascade is a terrible place and no one should go there...they want to keep it their little secret place! But I must confess, it's a wonderful place and Windancer Lodge was fabulous!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you loved our cabin. We feel the same way as you do....we are are happy that Cascade Lake is still a "hidden gem". We appreciate the suggestion to add a little grassy place for the is a cabin out in the wilderness, and we don't live there year round to take care of a lawn....but we are glad you had a good time anyway and made the best of it. We hope you come again!

Glassy water every day of our stay!

  • 5 of 5

Cascade Lake is so awesome! We had warm water smooth water every day of our stay! The cabin was awesome....plenty of room for our whole group. The kitchen is super big and we loved hanging out on the decks in the back.

The walk down to the lake is super short. Some of the days we left our boat in the cove.....and our trailer in Osprey Campground...but it was also easy to bring back the trailer and walk down to the lake.

A deer walked through the property several times and then we found that it likes to bed down in the afternoons underneath the lower deck.

What an amazing place to stay! We will definitely stay again.
