Lakefront -gated community-dock-This gorgeous lakefront cabin welcomes you with a large family/dining/kitchen area overlooking the water, with adjoining great room, bedrooms and bath and walks out to a beautiful covered/open deck that leads to the lake with your own private bay. Upstairs is a huge play/family/media area with 4 more large bedrooms, bath with Jacuzzi tub. Private balcony off of master and upstairs bedrooms. All surrounded by private trees, walkways, swings for the children and water.
We spent our late July family reunion at the O'Toole cabin. This cabin is perfectly suited for those who love to go boating; in fact, it was on the side of the island that still had sufficient water for boating in the lake, and the private dock made it so nice to drop off a few people and pick up a few others. It's just right there a little ways out the door. Also, each family had a bedroom of their own, which is perfect for those who like to be together but also like a little private space for sleeping or napping. We are looking forward to going again next year.
Property was clean, open, great kitchen, living room ready to watch the Olympics. Good multi-family vacation spot. Plus game room with ping pong/Foosball, and pinball (too bad the flippers didn't work) and another big screen tv viewing area. Back deck open. Kayaked. Fished. West Yellowstone entrance is 30 minutes away and the town is cute. Fabulous memories!
First of all, I would like to say that the owners of the property were always prompt with answers to questions and so friendly. It worked out perfectly for us. We had 9 children ages 5-12 who shared the bunk room ( a bed for each child) We had plenty of room to set up pak-n plays for the 2 year olds in their parents bedrooms. The 17 year old had her own bedroom with an extra bed. We had 5 couples and each had their own room. We enjoyed the roomy family room with ping pong table, foosball, and pinball machine (even though the flippers did not work at the time). This is the third place we have stayed in Island Park and three things stood out about this place: it was the first one in which there was air conditioning, we were given access to the large garage and the kitchen had lots of storage and huge prep area. The kitchen was great for preparing meals for 22. We spent most of our time on the dock which was sturdy and could be extended out for low water at the end of the summer. They had a swing which the younger children enjoyed and a nice fire pit which we all enjoyed. The bathrooms and kitchens were updated and the place was clean. We really enjoy having a private dock for our gatherings and this is one of the few rentals that also accommodates 20+ people.
Every thing we needed was available in the Kitchen. We had plenty of room for the entire family. We practically lived on the Dock as we had two wave runners and a boat. Both Lori and Shane were prompt in answering our questions as we were preparing the week before. The locked gate system to get onto the Island worked well and after Shane got us in when we first arrived we were able to call the gate from the cabin for family as they came and went. Overall it was a wonderful stay and we would rent from Shane and Lori again in a minute.
Our family of 20 enjoyed the beautiful cabin and surroundings on Bill's Island. The triple bunk bed (sleeping 9) bedroom was a hit with the cousins. They also enjoyed the spacious game room. There was plenty of room for everyone to enjoy. 3 bathrooms was an added bonus to accommodate our large group... beautiful tub in one and spacious shower in another. Adequate parking for 5 vehicles. We would stay here again.
Took the whole family (14 of us) to O’Toole Haven and had a marvelous time. The cabin was completed decked out and did not disappoint. It was very spacious and easily accommodated our family, particularly the large family room and kitchen which were completely stocked with everything we needed. Our grandchildren loved the ping pong table, pinball machine, and tree swing. The private boat dock was so convenient and easy to use. We have boated at many different places but haven't EVER had water so smooth - it was unreal. Having the cabin nestled in the pine trees complete with the breathtaking view of the lake only added to the ambiance and was the perfect finishing touch. I would highly recommend this vacation spot for anyone looking to make priceless memories.
The Heart of Yellowstone/Teton Country
Only 20 miles from Yellowstone National Park, some of the same natural forces that once made Yellowstone National Park so scenic also made Island Park similarly beautiful. Island Park sits in the world's largest caldera, 23 miles in diameter, created from a volcano that collapsed in prehistoric times. Now covered in a dense forest of pine and wildflowers, it is popular for hiking and fishing in the summer and cross country skiing and snowmobiling in the winter. The Henry's Fork of the Snake River is world famous for fly fishing, and is curtailed here to form the 7,000 acre Island Park reservoir, popular to both anglers and boaters. The Henry's Fork then winds through the meadows of one of Idaho's most premiere state parks, Harriman State Park, also known as the Railroad Ranch.
Island Park is a rustic area with many ranches and guest lodges where you can fully experience the atmosphere of the region. A most rewarding side trip in route to Island Park is the Mesa Falls Scenic Byway. Mesa Falls is 65' high and can be viewed from an observation point high above the falls. Upper Mesa Falls is 112' and has a network of viewing platforms, as well as a visitors center.
Just before the Montana border, you will find Henrys Lake and Henrys Lake State Park. Located only 15 miles west of Yellowstone National Park, this high mountain lake is the kind of place fisherman dream about. The state park is open in summer and fall for anglers to fish for cutthroat, brook and rainbow-cutthroat hybrid trout. Another source for the Henry's Fork comes from Big Springs, where 120 million gallons of water bubble up into the water each day. The Big Spring Nature Trail, six miles north of the Island Park Ranger Station, is a half-mile, handicap-accessible trail that provides great viewing of osprey, bald eagles, waterfowl and an occasional moose, deer or muskrat.
