A House for All Seasons!

Bedrooms 3
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Come and spend some quality time at this wonderful cabin located near beautiful Payette Lake. Enjoy your mornings, afternoons and evenings in this tranquil setting. Watch deer, fox and the occasional black bear, from the comfort of the living room, dining room, kitchen, front porch or deck. It is cozy, comfortable and convenient! It is located in the year-round beauty of a glacier created valley surrounded by lakes and streams, forests and meadows.

Our cabin is only a short walk to the lake and an approximate 3-minute drive into the charming alpine valley setting of downtown McCall. It is centrally located near many activities: a 15-minute drive to Brundage Mountain Resort for downhill skiing and snowboarding; a 4-minute drive to Bear Basin Trailhead where you have miles and miles of pristine groomed cross-country ski trails in the Winter and easy-to-extreme mountain biking trails in the Summer; a 7-minute drive to snowmobile parking for wonderful wilderness trails to sled.

In the Summer and Fall, McCall is a hiking, backpacking, cycling (road or mountain-bike), golfing, boating, hunting and reel- or fly-fishing paradise. In the Winter and early Spring, it is THE place to come for downhill and cross-country skiing, ice-skating, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, snow-tubing and making snowmen! Also, the last weekend in January and first weekend in February is when we have our annual McCall Winter Festival, complete with parades, special events and magnificent snow-sculptures created by talented artists from all over the U.S. There are two large grocery stores in town to supply your culinary needs and great restaurants if you choose not to cook. And for those of you who like to content themselves with shopping, there are plenty of places to indulge.

You can bring your own “toys” - there is plenty of extra off-street parking at the cabin – or you can travel light and rent them here. Our friendly merchants can supply you with boats, jet skis, rental water-skis/wakeboards/towables, snowmobiles, cross-country and downhill skis and snowboards, and, in Cascade (30 minutes South of McCall) you can rent ATVs.

All in all, Casa del Carmen and our lovely town will meet . . . or beat . . . your expectations of a wonderful vacation, whether you are an outdoor enthusiast or simply want to curl up with a good book in front of the fireplace!

About Cathy Jasperson

Before we had ever been to McCall, we had been told what a beautiful place it was. As we drove into town on a beautiful summer day, we had our first look at Payette Lake. The highway descended into the flower clad town which gave us a glimpse of this beautiful glacier-formed lake and the surrounding mountains which frame it. It took our breath(s) away! Since that time, we have made this wonderful piece of paradise our home. When we bought this cabin, our dream was for our guests to experience the innumerable wonders of this area, just as we do. We hope you enjoy it!

Cathy Jasperson purchased this cabin in 2009

A cozy place to stay with the comforts of home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay. We stayed here with our two young boys and felt right at home. Couldn't believe how quiet the street was! The kitchen is well stocked and the bbq is great to use. The house is very comfortable and has artistic décor. I liked it that they added a new flatscreen in the master bedroom and the wifi was a lot faster than what we have at home. Like our last visit, we enjoyed being outdoors. We appreciated being able to use the canoe. We enjoyed fishing in Rowland pond. Also, we took a nice day trip hiking, visiting Burgdorf Hotsprings, and going to the old mining town of Warren. I'd recommend taking a whole day to explore Warren and contacting the Forest Service office in McCall first for detailed information. Cathy is very helpful and kind. She goes above and beyond other places to stay. This is a great place to stay!

Amazing and Very Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in this home for about a week. The floor plan for this home is perfect for one to two families. The house is well furnished, clean, and the large windows allow plenty of beautiful McCall sunlight to shine in. The house is very close to town, but the street that it is on is so quiet (rarely will you see a car drive by) that you feel like you're miles away. Definitely better than the owners have described it. A great place for you and your entire family to spend your next McCall vacation.
