Central Idaho Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Log cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

Imagine yourself getting away from the crowds and letting Smiley Creek lull you to sleep. This adorable cabin is located right on Smiley Creek at the south end of the Valley between Stanley and Sun Valley.

There is a king bed in one room and a bunk bed set in the other, sofa sleeper in the living room. The cabin has a fully stocked kitchen, a large living room area and a great covered porch facing the creek. This home also has an RV hook-up and a pasture to bring the horses along.

Relax by the fireplace in this cozy log cabin, enjoy world class cross-country skiing and snowmobiling from your doorstep, hike, hunt or fish -- or simply explore the beautiful Sawtooth Valley and come home at night to your own quiet, comfortable spot in paradise. Access the Sawtooth Wilderness within minutes. Sun Valley and all of its amenities is just a short drive away...

Quite and comfortable

My wife and I stayed rented the cabin for several days during the summer and enjoyed our experience. It was clean and quiet with a nice porch overlooking a creek. We enjoyed our stay and would rent this cabin again!

Base camp with all the comforts

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Abe's Chair Cabin for 3 nights in August 2015. The rental process was super easy. The cabin was immaculate and stocked with everything we needed. Loved having a washer & dryer - and detergent! Thanks. We really enjoyed coffee on the porch with the sunrise. The location is perfect for playing in the beautiful Sawtooth Mts; both activities out of Stanley and Ketchum. The Sawtooths are really beautiful and lived up to what we heard: "The Tetons without the tourists". The store and restaurant (with live music), around the corner, was an added bonus. So glad we found Abe's Chair Cabin. It got our Idaho & Montana vacation off to a grand start. Thanks!

Like home in the Sawtooths

  • 5 of 5

Well, it's taken awhile to write a review but I'm finally getting around to it. Spent a week and a half here last August (2014) and had a wonderful time. The Sawtooths are special and it felt like it was our home, which really was the idea. Not my first time in the Sawtooths (it was Claudie's though), but the first time in such comfort. It was great to explore all the little back roads and tributaries of the Salmon, fishing a bit every day. Got a couple hikes in, driving, fishing, and spent a couple days just relaxing around the cabin and reading. Fantastic!

Wonderful stay in comfy cabin in the woods. Hiking and mt biking nearby. Also streams and lakes for fishermen. Wonderful Smiley Creek lodge and restaurant is a short walk or drive for a truly fine breakfast or more. Teens and parents loved the relaxing atmosphere of this unpretentious place in one of the most spectacular locations in the world!!

Our favorite getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have rented Abe's Chair Cabin 3 times over the years. It's my favorite vacation spot. One year my husband was recovering from broken ribs and the owners couldn't have been more accommodating, bringing a better recliner for him to use for sleeping. If you're looking for peace and beauty, this is the place. The cabin is so comfortable, has all the amenities, and is located in a gorgeous, private setting. I look forward to our next visit to Abe's Chair Cabin.
