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...

The cabin was exactly as described and pictured in the VRBO write-up. A wonderful retreat from a busy world. Great access to hiking trails and lakes close by. The cabin was cozy and warm during the cool nights. The surrounding area was peaceful although there were neighboring houses. We amazed ourselves by forgetting what day it was and stayed an extra night past our reservation. Liese, the owner, was very gracious about our mistake and thankfully there was not a renter scheduled for that night! Our experience with Abe's Chair Cabin was positive and we hope to return for another relaxing cup of coffee on the porch, looking at the view and breathing in the fresh air. (Our favorite way to start each day!)
This cabin was really wonderful!
We have a two-year old daughter, and it was nice to be able to allow her to run around outside without worrying about traffic or other hazards. Smiley Creek literally runs through the backyard, which provided a great place to cool off. It's centrally located if you are interested in hiking, biking, and fishing. Plus, the cabin's porch is ideal for just sitting and reading books if that's more your speed.
The kitchen is incredibly well-supplied, and the house overall is very well cared for. I would welcome the opportunity to stay here again, and my only hesitation in recommending it is that it will lead to less availability.
I had a couple of questions for the owners prior to my stay, and I found them helpful and incredibly timely in their responses.
We loved using this cabin as a place to adventure from; we explored Alturas & Petit Lakes and did lots of swimming, hiking, and boating in the area. Just driving up the road past the cabin puts you in beautiful national forest areas along Smiley creek. The cabin is very simple but has everything you need and provides a very peaceful spot. We enjoyed eating breakfast on the porch, listening to the creek and watching the sheep across the way and also liked being able to walk down to Smiley Creek Lodge for great burgers and shakes. Liese was a very accessible host and was great to work with!
We pulled in and immediately moved right in. A great court for splashball (tennis / ping pong cross) in the open area west side. Or many other games I'm sure! Beautiful spot. Loved hanging out on the porch!!
We really loved our stay!! Such a great area!!
We stayed at Abe's Chair cabin for 3 nights and enjoyed it a lot. Very private but not remote or isolated. The creek the runs right in front of the lot was soothing in the night. The cabin is close to many outdoor attractions and we went horseback riding and rafting on the Salmon river. Liese and John provided everything we needed for our stay and the cabin was well appointed and clean. It all made for a great short excursion.
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!
