Why Mark Greksa chose Idaho

This is the most beautiful area in McCall and we enjoy the peace and quiet of the river. Nothing came close to this property in terms of home quality, views, and the fact that it is on the river.

What makes this house unique

Each room is facing the Payette river. We enjoy sitting on the patio with a glass of wine watching the wildlife roam freely and the large Ponderosa pines.

Just as great as we remembered!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the pleasure of staying in this fantastic home again this year for Christmas. Everything was as great as we remembered. The abundant space of the home, large kitchen with seating at the bar (where everyone gathered) and two living areas are perfect. No one felt cramped. The view of the Payette River never gets old. If you're looking for a wonderful family vacation rental, you can't do any better than this home!

The views were amazing and wildlife viewing too!

  • 3 of 5

We found the condition of the property very nice. We did not feel the Floorplan was great; the best view was at the small table off the kitchen and the space was really right. The two upstairs bedrooms shared a large bathroom and it was not appropriate for two couples to share. The water pressure in the house was relatively weak. The lighting was more for ambiance than function except in the kitchen. We felt the lower level was unwelcoming for use since there were no windows, nor powder room.

That being said, hours were enjoyed on the patio looking at the view and enjoying the wonders of McCall and especially the hiking and Ponderosa Park.

Incredible McCall destination

  • 5 of 5

Just beautiful is what keeps ringing in my mind. I would recommend this house to anyone looking to spend time in McCall, the location is just outside of town but so close at the same time. In town there are great coffee shops, restaurants, brewery ect..

Look at the picture, now imagine sitting on the patio (that's the view from the patio) with your morning coffee or evening cocktail, a Bald eagle soaring by and deer swimming across the river below. I will always remember that and the amazing sunsets, enough said!

The house is equally as nice, very clean and well appointed, perfect for a family vacation or romantic getaway. I will definitely plan on staying here again, I will rank it as one of my top destinations.

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a great vacation, this home will certainly provide the setting. I can't say which is more spectacular, the home itself or the views from the home. Starting with the home, it's very spacious so you'll never feel crowded or cramped. The 3 full bathrooms plus extra powder room make it easy for several people to get ready at the same time. It was very clean and provided everything needed for our stay. The kitchen is very well equipped and provided everything we needed. It was nice to find the staples on hand - plastic wrap, foil, basic spices, olive oil - this hasn't been our experience at some homes we've rented. The bedrooms are large and wonderfully furnished. The mudroom attached to the garage is the perfect staging area for gearing up or drying ski gear over night.

The views from the home are just breath-taking. We were always drawn to the large picture windows overlooking the river, hoping to see deer at the river again or the bald eagle on its way to or from its nest. On our first full day at the home our 18 year old son was sitting on the bench staring out the window. My husband asked, "what are you doing?" He replied, "taking in the view." It's spectacular.

The home is located just minutes outside of McCall and a short drive to Brundage. An unexpected bonus was its location to the Activity Barn, a great place for tubing & family fun. There's a market and large RiteAid minutes from the home should you need anything.

Mark, the owner, was fantastic to work with. He responded very quickly with any questions we had prior to booking and prior to our arrival. The care-taker of the home was also great to work with. You won't go wrong staying at this home during your vacation to McCall. We are looking forward to staying here again in the future.
