About Frank and Kitty Tuft

Recently retired from Ski Vacation Business in Utah. Parents of 9 children and grandparents of 13. We literally built this home ourselves!

Frank and Kitty Tuft purchased this house in 2009

Why Frank and Kitty Tuft chose Idaho

Owner's grandfather ran sheep and cattle in the mountains around McCall and his descendents still gather in McCall every year to enjoy its beauty, their heritage and each other.

What makes this house unique

We love that our entire extended family can be together while still allowing everyone to have their space. We ride our bikes around the lake, down to the beach, and up to Loon Lake to see the downed WWII B23 Bomber. We walk down to Davis Beach and Lakeview Beach and play in the water and lie on the beach.

We watch family movies on the projected screen and make huge meals in the kitchen. We gather around the big kitchen table to play games, eat and talk. Lots of talking when the kids are in bed.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Frank and Kitty,



We are so grateful to you for opening up the Conifer Lodge to other families! We absolutely loved it! My family had the best experience there and everyone was overwhelmed by its beauty, coziness and space! My nieces and nephews had the time of their lives...they loved the bunk room and play room! A memory they will keep forever! My parents and siblings were so comfortable staying there as well. The kitchen was amazing to use and had every supply and utensil imaginable.



THANK YOU for a wonderful experience and for all the accommodations you made for us. Our wedding dinner and celebration there was perfect! Thank you so much for giving other families, like ours, the experience of staying in the Conifer Lodge!



See you again on our next vacation!

A delightful home, full of character & amenities. This large home is well loved!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this home 5 years in a row for only a weekend each time, and my kids talk about the Conifer Lodge all year long! It is one of their favorite places!

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

This house is incredible! It has everything in it you could possibly need. We had almost 40 people (adults and children) all under this roof and it worked great for us. The owner was so great to work with. We hope to go again!

Amazing cabin for large group

  • 5 of 5

We took 11 friends to this cabin. Each room had privacy and the living room was great for entertaining and sharing memories. The location was great and the cabin had all amenities to cook and relax. Amazing place to stay!

The pictures don't even do this place justice! This place was incredible. Family reunion was a success largely because this lodge impressed everyone! We hope to come back year after year. Thanks so much!

Christmas break at Conifer Lodge with the Pocock family

  • 5 of 5

It is difficult to find a lodge/cabin that fits a family of our size! Conifer Lodge was all that we hoped for and needed! The kitchen was amazing...we had beds for everyone, thank you for providing lovely and clean towels and bedding, having little samples of shampoo, lotion and body wash was so handy for some of the family. The play area was a dream for the kids of all ages. We shared home videos of our skiing, skating and tubing experiences on your large screen TV...seriously, every need was met!!! Everyone said over and over again, "We are living the dream...all together and room to enjoy one another!" There isn't a lot of area for the kids to play outside, but we took advantage of the big pile of snow to try out our Christmas present...the igloo maker! Thank you for the beautiful tree, the lights outside...it all added to the magic. The only real concern we had was that the wifi would keep going off. Some of our sons in law were doing work away from home and needed the wifi. Also in the first bedroom to the right on the second floor, there was a previous stain on the comforter...FYI! Thank you again for making this incredible experience a reality for our whole family!!! We loved every minute!!!! The Kent Pocock family

Perfect Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd year of using the Conifer Lodge for our ladies retreat. We have approximately 30 ladies and it is extremely roomy and comfortable. The cabin is clean and comfortable. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen is stocked very well. The open great room is perfect for our big gatherings. Everyone has a place to sit. The lodge has tons of charm which include hardwood floors that have been repurposed from and old building. The floors squeak so it is hard to get around in the middle of the night without making some noise. Maybe encourage ladies to bring fans for some background noise. The first year I went I was thinking that this large home would be isolated but it is in a subdivision with homes right next to the property but when you are in the lodge you don't even notice. It is a great place with positive energy. Very happy we have such a fabulous place to getaway to.
