Recent Idaho property reviews

  • Honeysuckle Bay

    "The home was a little outdated, but was very comfortable and clean. No issues with the inside. Plenty of blankets and comfortable sleeping. We did not use the appliances, but they appeared to be OK. The only complaint I have was the driveway was supposed to be cleared of snow and it was not. It appeared that it snowed two days before we arrived and the driveway was cleared but additional snow had fallen which was not. This made the driveway very slippery and unusable. The owner had informed me of the slope of the driveway but assured me the driveway would be cleared. The location was perfect for us since my son lived only 5 minutes away and the view of Hayden Lake was beautiful"

  • Not a rental, a HOME

    "The previous reviews are spot on, but this property is all that's written and so much more. This was our second trip to the area, and our umpteenth time vacationing at a rental property in various locations. However, with its warm and inviting, lived-in feel, this house felt different than a typical "lacking" or "camp/cabin" rental property. It was more like staying at a good friend's home while they were out of town. As the reviews mention, the house had EVERYTHING you could possibly want (from pastry cutters and meat thermometers to wifi to well-stocked linens and extra pillows), was VERY clean (and we are an extremely picky family..), but also had all the sweet touches that made our stay cozy and comfortable. Cable TV's in every room? Check. Extra fans for warm days? Check. Plenty of blankets when it's chilly? Check. Sweet decor and tips on the local area? Check. Extra toiletries (band-aids, razors, soap, shampoo, etc)? Check. They had it all. We loved the location, too. Town was within easy walking/biking distance, but the property was secluded enough to enjoy the peace and quiet of nature in the backyard. The bike trail is at the neighborhood entrance, Warm Springs fishing is across the street, and the pool was refreshing and quiet. The backyard was green and full of trees, and we enjoyed eating literally every meal on the patio during our 9 day stay. Our only (very minor) complaint was lack of lounge chairs or hammock. It would have been the icing on the cake to take a leisurely nap outside! (...would a hot-tub be going overboard for next year? We don't think so...) :) Truly, you can't go wrong with this rental. We almost hesitated in writing this review...because we want it all to ourselves next year!!"

  • Gorgeous Home; Amazing Setting

    "This home is GORGEOUS and the setting is spectacular! It was the perfect place for a family gathering. My family of 18 and I spent 5 days at this stunning home in early October as we finalized details for my brother’s wedding at nearby Galena Lodge. Everyone had his or her own quiet sleeping area and bath, while the first floor’s open kitchen/living area/wrap around deck and patio kitchen served as our gathering area. The multiple refrigerators, sinks, prep areas, and dishwashers allowed everyone to contribute her or his cooking and/or bartending talents to the pre-wedding festivities. In between ‘events’, many of us walked out the door, hiked up the mountain, and walked to the hot springs just upstream. My husband and nephew left the house on two of the bikes and rode through the state forest. Even beyond the amazing features of this home, were John’s insights on the surrounding area. He provided us with the names of caterers, restaurants, a fly-fishing outfitter for the intimate bachelor party, and the names of places coveted by the citizens of Ketchum. He was a fabulous destination host. I cannot say enough about this home, the location, or the owner. Five stars!"

Idaho Travel Tips

Season to Visit Idaho Vacation Rentals

Idaho’s climate varies in accordance with its terrain and is therefore quite different in different parts of the state. The southern low lying regions enjoy warm summers with hot days and balmy nights. Most rainfall occurs during the summer season in this area and rain showers are generally quite short-lived. For many of the lake areas in the south, summer is the preferred time of year to book one of our Idaho rentals. The warm days allow the kids to enjoy playing in the lake waters and enjoying a wide variety of water sport activities. The mountain areas, full of great Idaho cabin rentals, are much cooler and receive heavy snowfall between December and March each year. This provides ideal snow skiing conditions for the many ski resorts.

Activities at Idaho Cabin Rentals

Idaho is home to many scenic lakes. Within easy driving distance, there are at least six lakes which are all great vacation destinations. Facilities vary depending on the recreational classifications of the lakes but all offer great fishing opportunities. Most allow recreational boating including power boating and are ideal destinations for waterskiing, wake boarding and leisurely sunset cruises. Many cabins for rent in Idaho are located on the lakeshore, providing easy access to the water. Many have private docks where you can tie your boat up for the duration of your stay. For families, you can enjoy long summer days enjoying a wide variety of water sports. In the afternoon, you can go into town to buy ice cream and get some bait for an early morning fishing excursion the next day. The lakes are great for paddling and many marinas have kayaks available to hire. In the winter months, one of the most popular activities is snowmobiling. There are also many groomed trails for cross country skiing. In the mountain areas, there are a number of high-class ski resorts, particularly in the area of Sun Valley, where you can easily find great ski cabin rentals in Idaho.

Visitors to Idaho Vacation Rentals

Idaho is probably one of the lesser known vacation destinations. Most people think of it as the potato state and are unaware of the beautiful mountain ranges and lakes that make it an ideal vacation destination. It is a relatively affordable destination where vacation rentals in Idaho are large and spacious. This makes it an ideal destination for a family vacation. People who will enjoy Idaho are those who appreciate nature, beautiful scenery and the outdoors. There are many activities available in both summer and winter. It is a destination where you can relax, take a break from busy city life, and enjoy some quality time with your friends and family. The many lakes attract fishing enthusiasts from both near and far. Many of the communities hold annual fishing fests which are great events to attend.

Traveling to Idaho

The main access point to Idaho is in the Capital City of Boise which is located in the far southwestern corner of the state. To get to the northern parts of Idaho, the closest airport is Spokane International Airport which is located in the neighboring state of Washington. Both these airports host regularly scheduled flights from most major cities in North America. There is quite an extensive and well-maintained road network in Idaho and the best way to get to your vacation destination is usually by car. Rental agencies are located at the airports and it is advisable to make reservations in advance, especially over weekends and peak holiday periods. There are two transcontinental railroads that pass through Idaho. If you want to be able to enjoy the scenery, this is a great way to travel. Check up on the routing to see if the trains stop near your vacation destination.
