About the property

Clean & comfortable 4 BD, 2 BA. Perfectly located, 5 houses from Davis Beach

Our cabin is in a great location and in a beautiful forested setting, with a very short walk to the lake and community dock. Just 5 houses in from the water, we are perfectly situated on a quiet street that dead ends at the beach, which makes our place especially appealing for families who want their kids to be able to run back and forth to the beach.

Freshly carpeted and painted throughout, our home is warm and well appointed. The open floor plan connects the living room, dining room and kitchen and is great for large families or groups of friends. The charming gas fireplace provides cozy ambiance at the flip of a switch.

There is a nice queen bedroom on the main floor, with a second queen bedroom upstairs. Across the hall upstairs, the third bedroom has a comfortable set of twin beds. Both bedrooms have access to a wide balcony that looks out to Ponderosa State Park. Our spacious master bedroom has a king sized bed, a large walk-in closet and a private covered deck with outdoor seating.

There are 2 fully equipped bathrooms with tubs and showers; one on each floor.

Our cabin sleeps 8.

We offer plenty off-street parking for your cars and toys. We have space for parking up to 4 cars. Otherwise, this space an accommodate your RV, boat, boat trailer, jet skis or snow mobile.

The kitchen is fully stocked with our guests’ cooking needs in mind. Complete with all amenities, we provide a microwave, blender, crock pot and 2 coffee makers! (One has a built-in grinder.) We have plenty of kid friendly dishes.

Our family style dining table seats 6 comfortably and 3 can sit at the kitchen bar.

The living room has a brand new 47” flat panel screen smart TV with internet access. Enjoy music? Listen to Pandora through the sound bar on our TV or through our iPod speakers. We also have a game console which includes the original Pacman, plus numerous others. Guests can enjoy unlimited play - no coins needed! Board games? We have lots, including Monopoly, Parcheesi, Scrabble, Sorry, puzzles, checkers and Twister!

We provide a washing machine and dryer for your use.

Our private backyard is fully fenced for little ones and is great for BBQing and roasting s’mores under the stars. We have built-in deck seating, as well as a heavier iron patio set for 4 for outdoor summer meals.

About Amy Isacson

Finally achieved a life-long dream to own a property in McCall. Grew up vacationing here - can't find a better spot on the planet. Hope to share the joy we have for the area with our cabin and with old and new friends!

Amy Isacson purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Amy Isacson chose Southwestern Idaho

When looking for our dream home, we zoomed in on this exact location. Close to Davis Beach and Payette Lake, Ponderosa State Park, golfing and town, we knew we found the chance of a lifetime to get in on this special place. So warm and cozy in the winter, the large rooms are inviting in all seasons. Just a few steps from paradise, in several directions, come see for yourself why we chose this sweet cabin in the mountains.

What makes this cabin unique

Lake and community dock access, nestled amongst the trees, close to Ponderosa Park, town and golf course. Enjoy the best side of the lake for catching sunsets!

D-log construction give our home that authentic cabin feel. Effective gas stove in the spacious living room, comfortable beds in all 4 bedrooms, 2 private upper decks, nice fenced back yard for BBQing and roasting s'mores under the stars.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were looking for a place to have a family get away for 6 adults and two small children and this home was perfect for our needs. The 4 bedrooms easily accommodated the adults and the bed rooms were large and easily accommodated the children's cribs.

Three of the up stairs bedrooms has balconies as well.

The kitchen was well equipped with dishes and appliances.

The location was a short distance from a public beach (which offered a great view across the lake at night) and a easy walk to Ponderosa State Park which offered a visitor center and many hiking and biking trials.

I was surprised by the wild life around the home which included a fox and deer feeding in the neighbors yard.

Very enjoyable setting

The cabin fit all of us, 3 adults & 5 kids no problem! We were close to all the activities McCall has to offer and even had a couple foxes hanging out in the back yard one morning. Thanks for the stay, we are looking forward to the next trip!

Roomy and Restful

  • 5 of 5

We visited McCall over the Thanksgiving weekend with our four children. This cabin is lovely, roomy and clean. It has an open floorplan and a cozy fireplace. We enjoyed taking a walk to the beach and a drive around the lake. My children were delighted to watch deer on the lawn. We would stay here again!

Great location and floor plan for our family!

  • 4 of 5

Close to the lake and Ponderosa State Park, this cabin is in a great location! The cabin is down a quiet lane, but it's near a pretty busy intersection during the day, so if you want 24/7 quiet this may not be the place for you. The downstairs floor plan is open and was great for a multi-generational family gathering, with room for the kids to play while being watched. Also a plus was the (small) fenced in back yard. The multiple decks were a nice way to enjoy the fall air and sun. It was well-furnished and met our needs. The only complaint was cleanliness of some of the places around the cabin. We would stay there again.

Very pleasantly surprised. Much bigger than it seems in pictures.

  • 5 of 5

Was the listing description accurate regarding the location, layout, amenities, etc ? Yes

Was the property clean and well-maintained ? Yes

Did the owner provide good customer service ? No...she was AWESOME!!!!!!

Would you recommend this property to your friends or relatives ? Not only would I recommend, I want to go back.

What activities, attractions and restaurants did you like or dislike near by ? Loved the beach and dock. Just a 2 minute walk away you can spread out a towel and have a beer on the beach.

Our stay really went way better than expected. Everything was ready for us and it really felt like home.

Thanks so much and...I've never been to McCall before...I can't wait to get back there...and of course stay here.
