Lakefront House with Private Beach, Dock, Hot Tub, 'Boat House'

Bedrooms 4
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

This is a vintage 1947 cabin makeover that captures the essence of early McCall and combines it with the flavor of today. A tasteful mix of old with new makes for a delightful summer getaway or winter hideout. A solid wall of glass across the front opens onto a large deck area with stainless steel cable railing that allows for amazing views of the lake and surrounding mountains. Winter sunrises and sunsets paint the mountains in shaded colors that are vividly different to the bold strong ones of summer.

Earthy interior details include a radiant heated floor, a cozy gas fireplace, Mr Steam shower for two, and the original 'combed plywood' kitchen cabinets and wall treatments.

Walk outdoors from the lower covered deck area which opens directly onto the sandy beach just 10' from the water. This deck is perfect for being outside while you watch the kids playing on the beach. Or just gather together for a hand of cards without the sunburn - guaranteed!!

The large upper deck opens from the living room and the views are spectacular. Views of the sunrise and sunset are breathtaking. The colors that spread across the mountains and across the lake are endless. Bring your camera for some great photos.

Bring your own boat and toys, or rent them from Cheap Thrills. The large private dock is perfect! Dine on either of the 2 decks or on the covered side porch.

Furnishings combine the original bamboo period pieces with contempory European ones for the best in comfort. There are 4 bedrooms in the house (2 king beds downstairs, 2 queen beds upstairs). There are 2 twin beds in the detached bunk house (rechristened 'The Boat House,' but with no heat source, it is suitable for summer use only.

The kitchen has new appliances (including a commercial Viking cooktop), a farm sink, and a large butcher block island that seats 6 (great for indoor brunches and light dining). A modern office in the back has DSL wireless, and lots of workspace. There is a Sundance hot tub on the lower deck that seats four. There are 2 flat screen televisions, one in the living room, one in one of the king size bdrms.

The house is located just one mile N on Warren Wagon Road. You can easily boat, bicycle, or hike to town. There is a bike trail a short distance from the house & you can bike from there all the way around the lake or access the many trails in Bear Basin just across the street. Maps are provided in the house. There are great restaurants, several hot springs, and excellent golf courses from which to choose. Winter allows for great snowmobile forays, or if you're inclined to ice-skating, the Manchester Ice Rink is a delight, or better yet, clear a swath of snow from the frozen lake for your own private rink.

Snowboarding and skiing in the winter is only 17 minutes away at Brundage Ski Resort! There are many hot springs nearby, but our favorite is Bergdorf Hot Springs, which is accessible in the winter only by snowmobile (rent some from Cheap Thrills).

Gorgeous property with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

I brought a group of 9 friends to stay for Labor Day weekend 2017. We showed up and met Vicki and her husband at the house. They are wonderful hosts, extremely accommodating and make it a priority to ensure you are comfortable. The views from the deck over looking the lake and mountains are unforgettable. The location is close to town, but very private. (You can't beat having your own private beach!) Nothing bad to report about this property! Highly recommended! Thank you for everything Vicki!!

We wish we could say this was the worst vacation ever (just so no one else would go!)...but it wasn' was fantastic! Accommodations in this lakefront home were very well suited for our family, with plenty of space for friends to arrive and stay for a quick overnight visit too. Owners were great to work with and proactive in helping to ensure our stay was the best it could be. The place is nice, but not so over the top that we had to feel like we couldn't relax and enjoy our stay. Beach and dock for kids was fantastic...sandcastles and smores galore. Riding and running up Bear Basin was excellent as was road riding to Upper Payette Lake. We'll be back!

Thanksgiving at the Lake House

  • 5 of 5

Thanksgiving is our "family holiday". Because half of our family is in Southern California and the other in Boise, we alternate between the two places. After more than 10 Thanksgivings, by far this one was the best. There are 9 of us and the Lake House was perfect for us. Plenty of room, comfy bedrooms and bathrooms. Very warm and cozy in spite of cold temperatures. But by far the best part for me was waking up, early in the morning and finding my grandchildren, not on phones or watching television, but mesmerized as the sun rose over Payette Lake. Absolutely spectacular.

If you are concerned about things to do during this time of the year, think about hikes in the state park, ceramic classes, ice skating, the spa at Shore Lodge, marshmallow roasting in the fire pit or the community Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning. Best are the family games in the living room at the Lake House.

Wonderful, spectacular and fun. So fortunate that Vicki shared her home with our family, we will be forever grateful for our memories.

Fantastic McCall Lakefront Property

  • 5 of 5

Wanted you to know we had a spectacular weekend! Just the thing my husband and I were looking for after a long harvest and planting season! It would have been easy to stay longer if we didn't need to get home to our children and business. Thanks for sharing your home. It's a wonderful place!

Incredible Lake View and Hot Tub....ahhhhh

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here with our daughter and grandchildren for a long weekend and had a wonderful time. The home is located at the end of a private road and we felt secluded though there are lakefront homes stretched north and south from here. The well-maintained vintage cabin and decor was really nice, and we hardly left the huge lakefront deck addition (very strong and spacious). The home has a very nice lakefront set up with dock, beach area, fire pit, and kid's picnic areas. Kitchen is on small side but has nice appliances. Wasn't room for a dining area but a handy butcher block bar works ok. Only complaint - master bed was way too soft for our preference. Soaking in a hot tub at dawn watching the sun come up over the Payette forest and lake....well, you just can't beat that! Thanks for the wonderful stay. We'll be back for sure.

House is located on the west side of the lake about one mile N on Warren Wagon Road (from Lardo's). Only 5 minutes from town and the marina, only 10 minutes to Brundage Ski Resort. Being on the west side of the lake you get great morning sun with cooler afternoons. Gorgeous lake views summer, fall, winter, springtime!
