Garden Valley cabin description

Newer 3-story log cabin located at the bottom of the Swirley Canyon whitewater run of the South Fork Payette River between Garden Valley and Lowman. You can launch and land rafts and kayaks from the property. Hiking, jeeping, ATV, and mountain bike trails start right from the end of the driveway. Public land adjoins the property and there is abundant fishing, and wildlife viewing opportunities. Fall and winter are incredible for wildlife viewing. Summer is great for viewing birdlife. At night, open the windows and hear the soothing sound of the river.

This 2000 sq. ft. log cabin is very cozy. Because of its massive construction, no air conditioning is required to keep cabin cool in the summer. Summer days in Garden Valley start out cold and get warm in the afternoon (good for rafting and kayaking), the cabin stays a constant 72-76 degrees. In the spring and fall, the fireplace is used to supplement the electric forced-air heat. In winter, the fireplace and woodstove (in the walk-out basement) are used to keep the cabin extra-toasty.

Come get away from it all one hour from Boise. Amenities include massive windows with views, a Jenn-air style range and fully outfitted kitchen, massive 3-story fireplace, and a full bathroom on each floor. Cabin is roomy for a group of 6-8 people.

          Owner info

          About the owner: My wife and I work in education. We have lived in Idaho 26+ years and love it. This cabin is located in an area that still retains much of the original Idaho flavor. That means that people are friendly, not in a hurry, and not all interested in making the next buck. While McCall and Sun Valley's economies have been largely replaced by the tourist industry, Garden Valley's resource based community refuses to die. Garden Valley is about the outdoors but not about fancy restaurants and expensive galleries. We like that because we come up to get away from it all. If this appeals to you, you'll love it there.

          Why the Owner Chose Garden Valley:
          We bought here to have a cabin directly on the world famous whitewater river, the South Fork Payette. There is fishing, camping, hunting, mountain biking, jeep trails, ATV trails, etc. There is plenty of undeveloped, non-commercial outdoor recreation to do here.

          The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
          Benefits include access to the river. The birding from the deck is great. We view osprey, eagles, hummngbirds, tanangers, herons, and other birds. You have access to lots and lots of beautiful mountain country with lots of hot springs and other surprises.
