Recent Idaho property reviews

  • Excellent for Ironman Week or any other time!

    "We stayed at the Waterfront Gem for 2 for Ironman CdA and it was perfect. It is nice when the views, furnishings and house are nicer than you expect from what can be seen in the listing. The views were great, the bed was comfortable, the kitchen was the best appointed kitchen I have had at a rental, and plenty of room for us, and the bathroom and linens were very nice. The front deck and the dock were both excellent for relaxing. The location was very easy to find and convenient to grocery stores and coffee shops in Hayden and still an easy drive to Coeur d’Alene. The wild ife was awesome. We saw bald eagles in a tall tree near the house several different days and one morning woke up to a deer on the back deck. It was also fun to watch the sea planes land and take off. If you are considering this for Ironman week, this is a great choice. We have stayed in CdA both times previously (each time within 1 mile of the start) and this was the best place yet. Close enough to easily get in to do stuff at race site, but far enough away to be quiet and relaxing in the days leading up to the event and parking on race day was absolutely no issue."

  • Fly fishing week stay at Parker Gulch

    "Upon arrival the house was fully clean with all amenities nicely available. The location is high with a view on all sides. The yard (summer) has automatic sprinkler systems and the grass is maintained professionally to look like a fairway! The owners were extremely helpful with location of items within the house we might need to use; instructions on how to use TV, etc.; fully stocked kitchen ware; internet access; each room has it private bath. I would recommend it to my relatives or anyone - the house is designed so that everyone can comfortably lounge in the "great room" in comfort."

  • Bicycling Paradise and Living History in Wallace, Idaho

    "As luck would have it we arrived in Wallace in time for the Huckleberry Festival, and the Dobson Wheelhouse is right in character for this small town celebration. It’s old, it’s creaky, the drawers stick, the light switches are all in the wrong place, the cupboards are too high, and on and on and on… But, HEY! The house was built in the 1920’s! We LOVED it! We hope the Seeley's don’t change any of that, or we might as well stay at a cookie-cutter new condo somewhere. Thank you for taking us back to an earlier time. We really appreciate the small town atmosphere, the friendliness of the people and the ability to walk without fear anyplace in this sweet little town! If I remember right, Idaho is the Gem State and this little house in Wallace is an old, but sparkling little diamond in the rough! Don't miss it ! And while you're visiting Wallace be sure to have a meal at the 1313 Club or the Red Light Garage. Around the corner from the house, the Sierra Silver Mine tour gave me a new appreciation and admiration for my dad who used to work underground at the Sunshine Mine. Walk around town and peek into the many interesting little shops, and don't miss seeing an Old Time Melodrama at the 6th Street Theater! There's so much to do that you'd better plan to spend a week! Brink your bikes and ride the Coeur d'Alene Trail which goes right through Wallace, and then drive on up I-90 to Lookout Pass to ride the Hiawatha Trail. This is bicycling paradise! Do some research before you come. Wallace is known for the fact that every downtown building is on the National Register of Historic Places, which is why the government had to go over the town instead of through it in order to complete the Interstate. In the local mining museum there lies in state the very last stoplight on Interstate 90 from west to east coast! I guess they had a pretty nice celebration with pallbearers and a coffin to take that last light to it's final resting place. Oh, and there's lots more! You've just gotta come and see it all by staying at the Dobson Wheelhouse!"

  • Amazing wedding weekend with family and friends

    "We just spent a week with family and friends at this amazing estate to celebrate our wedding weekend - and it was perfect! Plenty of room for everyone to sleep comfortably: parents and siblings had privacy in the guest house, friends had a central place to hang out in the main house, we had the entire upstairs master, and we even had some people staying in RVs. The property is large enough to host an event - we had a 4th of July BBQ for about 50 people on one of the lawns, as well as give everyone parking and breathing space. The garage was huge and we used it to stage the many bins and boxes for our wedding (at Galena Lodge), with enough to room to still park a truck inside. There are so many washers and driers that everyone went home with clean clothes - and sheets for the RVs. The kitchen and dining area was perfect for huge breakfasts and dinners, as well as late night entertaining - there were plenty of dishes and glassware/utensils for everyone (plus 2 dishwashers for easy cleanup). The hot tubs and creekside environment helped relax everyone between events and there were plenty of outdoor spaces for games and for our dog to play. The master bedroom/bathroom/patio area was perfect for the bridal party to get ready for the wedding, with enough room for a hair stylist and makeup artist to do their work. Ed the owner was amazing to work with - very prompt and detailed in his responses. Everyone who stayed with us said they would love to rent this property again in the future!"

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.
