                We rented this cabin for a Girls weekend - we were visiting the St.Chapelle Winery. It was the most beautiful cabin, with a ton of room, and the most awesome views! The Elk visited EVERY day, and the porch is to die for! the Cabin is wonderful, and had everything we could need! The drive to St. Chapelle is a 45 min drive directly west, and there are a lot of places along the way to stop and shop or eat! We loved this cabin, and will be back. I will tell you to use the Map provided, or your GPS, as MAPQUEST took us the wrong way! BUT, if you stick to the map provided, and your GPS, you'll drive right to the cabin!

                A beautiful mountain, winter wonderland. The house is in a picture postcard location and the accommodations are very comfortable. Make sure you check your directions BEFORE driving up! Roads with fresh snow were no problem without chains. I would definitely come back again.

                The home was set up very well for what we needed, the view was beautiful and over two dozen head of elk walking by was quite a site to see. There were many things to do and see in the area and all close by. We will definitely stay here again.

                Very nice place to stay. Perhaps a challenge to reach from Highway 21, but provided a wonderful vista. The property was every thing it advertised and we would recommend this place to almost anyone. Daily elk visits were nice and birding included Say's Phoebe, Western Tanager, Spotted Towhee, Lazuli Bunting, Chipping Sparrow, and others. The unseasonably hot weather was a challenge, but we revised our schedule to include sunrise watching in early morning and sunset alpine glow until eleven pm on the deck. The Idaho City Shootist Club was particularly fun to watch.

                This is one of the greatest homes in Wilderness Ranch and the views go on forever. While we were there we had rain, winds and sun. We woke up to Elks everyday roaming around the property. It was so great being there for our granddaughter's High School graduation, We had wonderful meals that we were able to cook in the great kitchen and have our family togeather, just like old times. The home was very clean and very well maintained. We were able to visit Idaho City and Boise, it's only 25 minutes to each. Boise has lots of great restaurants, we really enjoyed Texas Roadhouse, great food and really good prices. Idaho City has a wonderful Ice Cream shop, be sure to stop there. There is so much history in the area and staying in this home, we were able to explore all of it. We would recommend this home to family and friends, and hope to visit it again.

                Such a beautiful cabin and breathtaking view! It is surreal to wake up and see mountains like these, to enjoy the beauty of Idaho while still having access to phone, internet, running water, AC and other household conveniences. The house is very nice, clean and roomy. Definitely a good place to relax and enjoy nature's peace and beauty.

                It is hard to find words to describe our experience here. Firstly, the house is amazing, friendly and a real home away from home. Secondly, the view is breathtaking to the point of tears. A great place for a retreat. The peace and tranquility that's not in complete isolation (great to see the neighbors!) makes this place ideal for any occasion. Thank you so much for the sacrifice and for sharing this overwhelming beautiful home with us.

                So, we made our way up 21, in a newly rented SUV, in the dark. That might have been a mistake. Nonetheless, we found the property, snow notwithstanding. We had apprised the ownership/management that the would only be two of us. So the inacessibility of bedroom 4 and bathroom 3 didn't matter at all. We figured those were "owners space". The fixtures and appliances were of very good quality, with one exception. The kitchen faucet, while excellent quality, had it's handle fall off several times. Don't get me wrong, the property is fabulous. Clean? Absolutely. Marine Corps clean. Spotless. The only real complaint I have was the bed. I spent 25 years in the furniture industry, but even Asians would say the King is rock-hard. It hurt my back so much that it took me 90 minutes to move in the mornings. Ok, maybe Dish vs DiretcTv. The AV setup could use some tweaking. Huge number or DVD/BluRays available though. That said, I'd move there in a heartbeat. In fact, we're looking now. 4x4 is a must. I don't know about summer, but the signs as everyone to use 4x4 at all times. In winter, it's really not an option. It's mandatory. We had snow/ice almost every day. Our rented Expedition did fine. 12 minutes up, maybe 25 down. It's on the side of a mountain. The craftsmanship of the house is remarkable. The quality of the amenities, outstanding. The views are beyond belief. Gripes? Ok, the bed, but that's just me, a couple of lightbulbs, that's about it. PLEASE respect the septic notes. Do not use the garbage disposal as you would on a city sewer. And nothing, NOTHING goes down the toilets other than septic safe paper. Leave the Charmin at home. Buy your firewood at Donna's in Idaho City. It's local wood. Burn it where you buy it. Besides, it's a buck less. Buy your pie at Trudy's. Do NOT buy a cinnamon roll. Those are crack cocaine. I bet you could get your driveway shoveled, and a bunch of wood split for one. Sick. Just sick. Oh, just remembered. Had a significant snowfall on day 2. Somebody showed up with a studly 4x4 ATV, and plowed our driveway. Awesome. My wife says I can't give the place 5 stars (bed, DIshTv). But in my mind, it's way closer than 4. I manage facilities for a living. This place is VERY well managed. I can only imagine the summer opportunities, with the lake so close. But we're going to find out. No regrets, other than leaving. Do it.

                Outdoors: Majestic sights from the highway entrance to the door step. Phenomenal views of the mountains, incredible sunrises and sunsets,daily sights of beautiful birds and elk were worth every penny. Indoors: exceptionally clean, modern, and set up for simple upkeep. Everything you needed for basic living was provided. We had a delicious meal using the outdoor grill. The laundry room was a plus!!! The wood burning stove was one of the best highlights our stay. The beds were sooo comfortable.We highly suggest this rental!

              Our home is a secluded mountain retreat while still being close to great restaurants and other cultural activities in Boise.
