Come and spend some quality time at this wonderful cabin located near beautiful Payette Lake. Enjoy your mornings, afternoons and evenings in this tranquil setting. Watch deer, fox and the occasional black bear, from the comfort of the living room, dining room, kitchen, front porch or deck. It is cozy, comfortable and convenient! It is located in the year-round beauty of a glacier created valley surrounded by lakes and streams, forests and meadows.
Our cabin is only a short walk to the lake and an approximate 3-minute drive into the charming alpine valley setting of downtown McCall. It is centrally located near many activities: a 15-minute drive to Brundage Mountain Resort for downhill skiing and snowboarding; a 4-minute drive to Bear Basin Trailhead where you have miles and miles of pristine groomed cross-country ski trails in the Winter and easy-to-extreme mountain biking trails in the Summer; a 7-minute drive to snowmobile parking for wonderful wilderness trails to sled.
In the Summer and Fall, McCall is a hiking, backpacking, cycling (road or mountain-bike), golfing, boating, hunting and reel- or fly-fishing paradise. In the Winter and early Spring, it is THE place to come for downhill and cross-country skiing, ice-skating, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, snow-tubing and making snowmen! Also, the last weekend in January and first weekend in February is when we have our annual McCall Winter Festival, complete with parades, special events and magnificent snow-sculptures created by talented artists from all over the U.S. There are two large grocery stores in town to supply your culinary needs and great restaurants if you choose not to cook. And for those of you who like to content themselves with shopping, there are plenty of places to indulge.
You can bring your own “toys” - there is plenty of extra off-street parking at the cabin – or you can travel light and rent them here. Our friendly merchants can supply you with boats, jet skis, rental water-skis/wakeboards/towables, snowmobiles, cross-country and downhill skis and snowboards, and, in Cascade (30 minutes South of McCall) you can rent ATVs.
All in all, Casa del Carmen and our lovely town will meet . . . or beat . . . your expectations of a wonderful vacation, whether you are an outdoor enthusiast or simply want to curl up with a good book in front of the fireplace!
