Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Cabin, 5 Bedrooms + Loft, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 11-15)

Rustic Luxury is a three-story, 3000 sq. foot, luxury cabin at Cascade Lake. It is located three tenths mile from the Boulder Creek boat ramp. The driveway is large enough for many cars, a boat trailer or snowmobile trailer. Summer activities include mountain biking, hiking, fishing, horseback riding, zipline at Tamarack, a round of golf at one of the five courses in the valley and all the water sports you can handle. In the winter, there is skiing, snowboarding, winter playland in McCall, snowmobiling, and sledding. Year round enjoy the soothing hot springs at Gold Fork.

The interior is spacious and comfortable. You will notice it is rustic yet luxurious with all the modern amenities and upgrades such as two media rooms, two utility rooms, granite counter tops, travertine master bath, and all new upgraded appliances. The loft is a great place to relax, watch a movie or play games and it overlooks the living area. For those cold winter nights, cozy up to the fireplace. There is also a romantic gas stove in the master suite. This is a cabin you will want to come back to again and again. It truly is a retreat. For hot summer nights, turn on the air-conditioner or relax on the wrap around mid-level porch.

The exterior features full landscaping, concrete driveway, wrap-around mid-level balcony, private backyard picnic table, path to a firepit fully stocked with chairs and firewood for your marshmallow enjoyment!

We are located 90 miles from Boise, Idaho, and just minutes from the new Tamarack Resort. We are only 15 miles from McCall and beautiful Payette Lake. Brundage Mountain Ski Resort is about 40 minutes away.

About Risa Roe

We didn't just buy this cabin, we built it and decorated with our hands and heart. My husband and I married in 2004. We wanted a vacation spot that we could come back to again and again. At the time, he had 4 children and I had one, we built the house large enough to accommodate them and the friends they may want to bring. We also planned to have lots of visitors. We enjoy sharing our home with others and love to see what you write in the guest book provided!

Risa Roe purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Risa Roe chose Wagon Wheel

Donnelly is such a beautiful area. Close to Lake Cascade and the Tamarack Resort we saw this area as a prime investment that we could also enjoy ourselves. We also love to bring our horses up to the area and ride the Paddy Flat Hills or the backside of Tamarack and look over the Lake. It is breathtaking!

What makes this cabin unique

There is so much to do in Donnelly! Skiing, sledding, hiking, horse back riding, hot springs, hunting/fishing, ice skating, historical scenery and so much more. It is a hidden paradise. We hope you visit and enjoy your stay. Our cabin is only .3 miles from the boat dock and beach area. We have a private forest back yard with a fire pit, large surround deck on the middle floor and pool table and darts in the garage. There are plenty of spaces for many people to spread out and hang out! Enjoy an incredible view of Tamarack mountain and say hello to neighbors on their way to the beach in the summer or snowmobiling past the house to the frozen lake in the winter. This cabin will help you create lifetime memories.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We brought our family, our boat and our friends. We barbequed out on the deck and watched the kids take our four wheeler back and forth to the lake. The best part was the view of the fireworks off the lake from the deck! Awesome. We will come back again.

Summertime - The boat dock and park is a very short walk! Tamarack has mountain biking trails and a zipline course. Wintertime - There is nearby Elk feeding that starts mid December to early spring. This is an amazing experience using horse and sleigh pulling loads of hay and visitors. You wil never get this close to wild elk.

Beautiful cabin with excellent hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Every year for the last five years we have rented a cabin in Donnelly for our family reunion. This cabin was the best so far. The cabin is beautiful, close to the lake and well maintained. The owners were great to work with. I will look for this cabin again in the future!

Beautiful Home!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Donnelly attending our son's wedding. The home is beautiful – exactly as pictured in the photos on the VRBO site. Be advised that there are a lot of stairs in this home. The main floor is on the second floor, so, even if you use the bedrooms on the bottom floor, you are always going up and down. You really get a workout! Also, the home is just down the road from the Lake Cascade State Park, so, at least during our stay, there was a lot of traffic to and from the boat ramp, along with ATV traffic. The home's amenities included a pool table and dart board -- but, the pool sticks had no tips, and there were only 2 darts with tips. It was disappointing not to be able to have some fun playing pool and darts. Also, although there was a large selection of DVDs to choose from, the DVD player did not work.

Great location if you want to be at the lake.

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our annual family reunion. It was a short walk to the lake from the house. The beach was fun for kids of all ages. House was clean and had everything we needed for our weeklong stay.
