Southwestern Idaho Cabin Rental Photos and Description

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.

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

Wonderful, homey cabin!

We stayed here for an extended weekend and had an amazing time. The property was clean and well-maintained. Great location and close proximity to town and Ponderosa. Had one small hiccup with the BBQ but the owner immediately resolved it. Would definitely recommend this cabin and can't wait to go back.

Great location and a fun place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a lot of fun at the cabin. The old game console is a lot of fun for kids and adults. Plenty of room and very clean cabin. The location made it easy for us to visit Ponderosa State Park and go walk in downtown McCall. Amy was very responsive to our needs and helped make it a great stay.

Cute Cabin

  • 4 of 5

Had a great stay in this cute cabin. Very cozy and a great central location. Plenty of parking in the warmer months but winter parking with a snowmobile trailer would be a problem. Cabin was clean and owner provided great service when we had a problem with the gas fireplace! They were easy to work with and were gracious to rent to us at the last minute. Location to the lake, downtown and restaurants and other outdoor activities a plus.

Owner's Response: We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at our cabin! We park our 2 snow mobile trailer without any problem - anything bigger could be unrealistic.

Grand comfort

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is spacious and extremely comfortable. It has everything you need with some very fun touches like the grand master bedroom and the "vintage" video game. It was very clean, and the information provided was extremely thorough and thoughtful. There is plenty of communal space for congregating with others, as well as private space to steal away to. Although our trip was a short one, I had fun fantasizing about coming back with a larger group (we were only three) and spending time in McCall, the lake, and the beautiful surroundings. Gorgeous country here.Thank you for making such a special place available to others!

Excellent Cabin Escape

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on a Friday evening ready to relax and rejuvenate! All too often, vacations are stressful, filled with "rush, rush, rush" excursions and activities. We weren't expecting to thoroughly relax, but we did! The cabin is situated so close to McCall downtown and the lake, that we barely drove our cars (only to the grocery store and the hot springs). We could easily access everything from the cabin via a 10-20 minute walk: the frozen lake, breweries, the ice skating rink (great for kiddos, both old and young) and more! The cabin itself was cozy and perfect for our family of six adults and two children. The kitchen was spacious with plenty of room to cook and prepare traditional Mexican dinners. The rooms were perfectly sized with plenty of room to spread out, especially on the king bed in the master, upstairs! We truly enjoyed our time and are grateful for the experience. Cheers, Amy!
