Property description

Stay in a beautifully handcrafted log home. Lots of natural rock accent the construction of this one-of-a-kind home. The views are of Jug Handle Mountain through large gable windows looking over a large pond. The floor plan is open with views of natural landscape mixed with imported landscape through many windows. The abundant wildlife and many varieties of birds make this a great stay for bird-watchers. Many different edible plants make walking the grounds a tasty treat. Herbs are also growing throughout the landscape. Covered porches make lazy and relaxation a priority. Not to mention no boat, water craft or recreation noise in this quiet serene setting. Staying in the home you will quickly come to realize how the natural flow mentally and physically help to relax and put you at ease. The bedrooms allow you to awaken to the sound of birds and opening your eyes to the beauty of the outdoors as the floor plan was designed for that natural awakening. Sitting in the hot tub looking out over the pond and beautiful yard make beginning the day or ending the day much more easier. If family fun is a priority the beautifully finished basement has a pool table, game table, and a large comfy couch with big screen television available for you. There are four bathrooms so no waiting to bathe for large groups. The kitchen is spacious and well laid out for get togethers of any size. Family reunions would be well suited for this setting. This home also lends itself well to weddings as the yard and landscape would accommodate large parties. There is also a huge fire pit area next to the pond. It is constructed of boulders and a quartsite rock patio area. There is a deck in the fire pit area next to the pond to exchange vows with that special someone. If a wedding is planned there is a large canopy and catering available. Meal preparation is also available along with shopping services. Many attractions are available within a few minutes drive. McCall is located 15 mins away with restaurants, a variety of stores, beautiful Payette Lake, golfing, boating, bike rentals, basicly anything you wish to do. World class skiing is within 40 mins at either Brundage Mountain or Tamarack Resort. Fishing is within walking distance.

Owner info

About the owner: My wife and I designed and built this home in 1993. We built it with our two young children at the time running through the sawdust of loghome building. If you stay here you will feel the love and thought of a family growing together which will bring the experience of staying here look at the love for your family a special time. Our home is bigger than my wife and I care to be in at this time as the kids have made their own lives but still remain very close. But we want to share it with others and as you will undoubtedly come to appreciate the wonderful experience of staying here. We currently live close to the home as we love to be around the home and property. My wife loves to maintain the gardens and grow much of the food we consume which is available to our guests. I do the maintenance and make sure all is well with the home. We are available to our guests for questions, service or friendly conversation.

Why the Owner Chose Donnelly:
Stay here once and you will come again. You will understand once you arrive

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
Privacy, close proximity to arguably the most beautiful recreation area in the northwest. And a good home feel.
