Bab's Lake Haven sits on the shores of Payette Lake with views across the lake of the Brundage Mtn. ski runs, a cozy beach with an area for bonfires, and a private dock for the use of our guests only. The sun shines on our dock from about noon until sunset which is around 8:30PM in July. This means plenty of time to enjoy the lake followed by spectacular sunsets.


Because of our location within Ponderosa State Park, there are miles of hiking trails and cross-country ski trails out our doors. The Park's green belt along the shore of the lake provides privacy for Bab's Lake Haven.

Our property consists of two buildings; the original 1930's cabin and an Annex built in the late 1990's. The Annex has 4 one bedroom suites that each has a living room with wood-burning fireplace, bedroom with kingsize bed, bathroom, and kitchenette with bar-size refrigerator and microwave. The two 2nd floor units each have a loft with additional sleeping; J Unit loft has 2 sets of bunkbeds and 1 single; the S Unit loft has 3 queen beds. The ground floor K Unit and 2nd floor S Unit of the Annex have sleeper sofas in addition to the king beds in the bedroom. The D Unit has the 1 king bed.

The original cabin has been modernized somewhat with indoor plumbing, but is still a cabin. It contains a living room with wood-burning stove, dining area, small kitchen, 2 bedrooms; 1 king & 1 queen and a loft with 3 queen beds and 1 twin bed reached by steep steps.

Please call for more particulars and exceptions. We require a separate check along with the final payment check for the damage deposit which will be refunded after the assessment of the property upon departure if there are no damages. You may also pay through PayPal. Please note that the property is listed for sale and we may rarely need to disturb your stay with a real estate showing.

Car: Recommended

Bab's Lake Haven is surrounded by Ponderosa State Park, a public overnight camping park. However, a sufficient buffer has been established so that we only see the forest to the side where the park is adjacent. There are miles of well-marked hiking trails and cross country ski trails and roads within the park for those brisk morning walks or hikes with an occasional sighting of deer.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1935

About the owner: Bab's Lake Haven is owned by the Babcock Trust. Our grandfather built the original cabins. Our parents were married in the living room of the main cabin and spent all vacations at the cabins with their six children. Once we were grown, the need for the Bunkhouse became apparent. Our father passed away over 40 years ago. Until her passing at 98 years old in May of 2015, our mother enjoyed having all her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren join her there for weiner roasts at the beach. Because our lease on the land had risen to an amount unaffordable, we opted to purchase the land in a voluntary auction in 2013, thinking we could rent for enough to cover our mortgage payments. However, it has not worked out and we must sell the property. Most likely the purchaser will continue to rent Bab's Lake Haven for continued enjoyment of those who stay here.

Why the Owner Chose McCall, ID, USA:
Our cabins were built by our grandfather on leased land where the Ponderosa Park amphitheater is now located. In 1954 the Park moved the two cabins to their present location so they could expand the park. The Vintage cabin was for his family and the now storage building was his office.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Being on the East side of the lake, we have the sun on the dock and lake from about noon until sunset which is after 9PM in the summer in McCall. Properties on the West side of the lake lose the sun on their lake play area quite early in the day rendering it too cool for swimming.
