  • Wonderful home for a family reunion!

    "We hosted our grown children and young grandchildren at this home in June. The home was perfect in every way! The bedrooms and bathrooms were beautiful; the gathering spaces fun; the kitchen equipped with everything we needed. The deck and hot tub and yard and fire pit created places for wonderful memories. The view of the lake, the mountains, and the woods rounded off the lovely location. I highly recommend this home in every way!"

  • Great Setting

    "Nice clean home. We didn't spend a lot of time in the house but we did prepare almost all of our meals there and the kitchen was adequate. Close to downtown and historic sites. Very short drive to Tamarack. The house does not appear to have ac (didn't see a unit anywhere). This wasn't too much of a problem in the evening because we'd open up windows at night to get a cross breeze. It was a bit uncomfortable during the day but we were out enjoying nature during that time. Also I haven't got my cleaning deposit back yet!? Maybe that comes later :) If you do stay here be sure to check out Buffal Gals! Great local resteraunt."

  • A Wonderful Time

    "My twin, our husbands, our brother, nephews and nieces , spouses and kids, had a wonderful weekend at Rustic Luxury! The Fall weather was perfect, the Lake beautiful, and the "cabin" delightful. What a great place for all ages! The owner's have thought of everything! So many things are provided for folks of all ages to do! It is so nicely furnished, and beautifully decorated. It was so much fun to see what theme each room was decorated in! So much thought has been given to detail. Fun for everyone! Just a super place, with a rental agent that see's that everything is perfect for you."

  • August Wedding

    "My husband and I had our wedding at this locaation on August 16, 2014. We had about 60 people attend and had a beach wedding. The beach was large and beautiful! Couldn't have asked for a better day or location. The home was great and we did all the cooking at the cabin for the wedding. The owner was extremely helpful and treated us right. We got our entire deposit back, which sometimes doesn't happen with some renters. We really enjoyed our time there and will go back in the future. If you rent this property you will not be disapointed."

Donnelly is an ideal family vacation destination. It has a beautiful rural setting with views over Lake Cascade to the west and the Salmon River Mountains to the east. There are loads of leisure and recreational activities available. For those that enjoy water sports, you can bring your boat to go waterskiing or wake boarding on the lake. The water is also great for paddling if you want to explore the lakeshore. There are several public picnic areas and these are usually located near the public boat launch areas. Sailing is also popular and there are some local outfitters where you can rent equipment.

Fishing is another popular activity on the lakeshore. Stop in at one of the local stores for tackle and bait, and find out from the locals where the best spots for fishing are.

You can climb up the hillsides and be rewarded with spectacular views over Lake Cascade and the valley. Donnelly is also a perfect vacation destination if you are looking to relax a while and simply enjoy nature.

Seasons to Visit Donnelly Lodging

Most visitors choose to visit Donnelly in the warmer summer months of June through August. The school vacation period is the peak season because it is such a popular family vacation destination. The long and warm summer days are ideal for spending out on Lake Cascade. You can also then enjoy the many other outdoor recreational activities on offer. In the winter months, the area experiences generally good snowfall. Snowmobiling is one of the favorite pastimes and there are also many cross country skiing trails in the area. If you are looking for a quiet mid-winter break, opt for a cottage that has a fireplace where you can snuggle up with a mug of hot chocolate and enjoy the views outside your window.
