Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Having grown up on a lake in northern Minnesota, when Burt Butler moved from North Carolina to Idaho in 1993 to work for the state court system, one of his dreams was to find secluded lakefront property that his four children could enjoy, and ultimately build a cabin that the family could consider a comfortable second home. That dream came true in 1998 when Burt Butler found a unique secluded lakefront property on a peninsula with a gentle shoreline and spectacular fishing with no motor boats allowed on the lake. In the Fall of 2001 the elegant and rustic cabin was started and finished in June 2002.

Why the Owner Chose Island Park:
Our secluded vacation property, with close proximity to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, is only a 75 minute drive from our home in Idaho Falls, and offered year round recreation opportunity for our family. Swimming, canoeing, fishing and outdoor fires under the stars in the summer, Fall colors and 4 wheeling in the sand dunes adjacent to the lake, and early winter ice skating, and when the snow gets deep great cross country skiing and snow mobiling and the enjoyment of a wood stove.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Peace, quiet, fires outside and inside, barbecue on the deck and dutch oven cooking, great fishing, wildlife variety from frogs, beavers, trumpeteer swans, birds of all varieties including bald eagles, moose, deer, to a sighting of a wolf.
