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 McCall

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!

  • 5 of 5

We had a big crowd of family members gathering for a wedding and all 15 of us stayed VERY comfortably in this beautiful home! With everyone getting ready at the same time there was no shortage of bathrooms and the kitchen was gourmet! The outdoor patio is beautifully lit with party lights and there is ample room for many people! I highly recommend and our hosts could not have been any nicer!
