About Frank

We ran a ski travel business in Utah for 20 years before retiring and coming to McCall to build our dream cabin with room for our 9 children and their families. We have made many wonderful memories with our family in this cabin and hope you can too.

Frank purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Frank chose Southwestern Idaho

Frank's grandfather ran sheep in the area for years and Frank came here as a child to visit his grandfather's cabin and play on the lake. It was always his dream to return and build his own cabin for his grandchildren to enjoy.

What makes this cabin unique

McCall has something for everyone!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Frank and Kitty,



We are so grateful to you for opening up the Conifer Lodge to other families! We absolutely loved it! My family had the best experience there and everyone was overwhelmed by its beauty, coziness and space! My nieces and nephews had the time of their lives...they loved the bunk room and play room! A memory they will keep forever! My parents and siblings were so comfortable staying there as well. The kitchen was amazing to use and had every supply and utensil imaginable.



THANK YOU for a wonderful experience and for all the accommodations you made for us. Our wedding dinner and celebration there was perfect! Thank you so much for giving other families, like ours, the experience of staying in the Conifer Lodge!



See you again on our next vacation!

Absolutely incredible!

  • 5 of 5

Our jaws dropped to the floor when we entered the great room. The conifer is a GORGEOUS, clean, spacious, palatial house. When they say it is a fully stocked kitchen they mean it! There are all of the dishes, glasses, pots, pans, crock pots, two coffee pots, EVERYTHING you could ever need to host your group. The towels and sheets are soft and clean and very high quality. The pillows and mattresses are ridiculously comfortable. They provide little baskets of shampoos and lotions for each bathroom. If this was a hotel it would be 5 stars, top of the line. They have a great stereo system and an electric piano for entertaining. They provided two bbq's outside and had tons of spare tables and chairs. There are lights strung underneath the covered porch (which is wide enough to seat people on both sides of a long dinner table.) The third story has a HUGE bunk room (pictures do not do this justice), a play room chock full of games and toys and a theater room with three huge long couches and a big screen TV. I barely saw my children they were so entertained upstairs. My only regret is that we couldn't live there for a month. My family was ecstatically happy with our find and the incredible weekend we spent there. Final note; Frank and Kitty Tuft are the most lovely people. It was so nice to meet you and to share your home with you. Thank you so so much.

Conifer Lodge

  • 5 of 5

Great experience. Great flow for the house, with a great-room that accommodated everyone. The layout of the house is in such a way that we could partition our group in different areas for family style sleeping arrangements, keeping families together. Great home for kids with activities built into the home. Well designed home for large groups, plenty of cold storage and cooking/preparation areas; Great layout, Great Home!

We have stayed in this home 5 years in a row for only a weekend each time, and my kids talk about the Conifer Lodge all year long! It is one of their favorite places!
