Overview

About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 10

Come unwind at "Aim True North," a rustic log home tucked into the pines and aspens, and just minutes from downtown McCall. This retreat is perfect for those who need the extra room for ATV/sled trailers in the winter months, or for those who love to hike in the spring, summer or fall (the beautiful Boulder/Louie Trailhead is just a couple of miles down the road). The home, and the drive in, is surrounded by aspen trees and the colors are spectacular during the fall months. Nary a neighbor can be seen from your private acreage.

The open kitchen, living, and dining area is spacious enough for the entire family to eat, relax and converse. The loft upstairs provides a separate area for the kids to play, along with a TV with VHS/DVD player for movie nights.

The spacious master bedroom with a beautiful queen log bed is on the main level with private bath and double doors leading to the back yard and hot tub. There are two extra guest rooms, each with double beds, and another full bath. You're welcome to bring your dogs along on vacation with you, though please be aware of the nightly pet fee.

The open living area features two comfortable leather couches and television with a movie selection. It is a wonderful room to gather in and sit in front of the pellet stove atop the river rock fireplace and listen to music or just unwind with a glass of wine.

The backyard has a firepit for cooler fall/winter evenings, an old-fashioned ski chair-lift swing, and a hot tub for all to enjoy! What a great area to spend the evening with the entire family. There is even plenty of rustic woods surrounding the cabin for kids to explore.

Come see why "Aim True North" is a popular home where guests return again and again!

She is weary...

  • 2 of 5

I travel a lot, for both business and pleasure. For business, I am usually limited to hotels and resorts, that's why for pleasure I choose Vacasa, VRBO or Home Away. I travel for pleasure about 6-10 times a year world-wide. My revitwws include the good and the bad. I typically focus in the good, but in this case there are issues that need to be brought to the forefront.

This trip wasn't even for pleasure, but a combination of had to vacate my permanent residence in Boise for insurance repairs due to an unexpected dishwasher flood in June and capture a weekend away.

I chose to combine the inconvenience of constriction with the ability to perform my work via internet and grab a chance for some fishing and bike riding, all reimbursed by my homeowners insurance.

About the property-

Pros-easy to get to and easy access to town without the hustle and bustle of weekend-McCall.

Right on the path to Boulder Lake, amazing fining spot! Couldn't keep the fish off the line and landed a 3lb Rainbow.

Quiet at night.

Hot tub was clean.

The Cons-this property is showing her age. There is a lot of deferred maintenance and obvious updating needs to happen.

Kitchen Appliances-The refrigerator is very noisy and sounds as though the compressor is on its way out. It cycles all day long and the noise can be very disruptive. You don't appreciate it until it shuts off .

Stove/oven-overused and needs to be replaced. I couldn't even figure out the temperature to set it to because the temp dial just spins freely. The burners are uneven and generally cooks food only in the lower half based in the significant slant.

Coffee pot- buy some goodwill and have a Mr. Coffee machine on hand. Nobody wants to spend 1/2 hour each morning trying to figure out how to use and calibrate something that resembles a spaceship cast-off from the '80's. Especially when coffee is critical. The Behmor should be "No More"

Nasty floor coverings. Heavily stained carpet with God knows what.

The hot tub is very aged/over 15 years old. While it was a nice enhancement while there in the evening, it had a noticeable leak on the left hand side by the bedroom entryway complete with green mold on the skirt area and rug.

Neighbors - I don't mind neighbors and permanent residents, but these take the cake. Each and every morning they would release their 4 dogs which would amble over and crap all over the place. Walking around the property is difficult trying to avoid all the poles left by the dogs-and there is a considerable amount, enough to be offensive.

I am obsessive with cleaning up after my service dog, and expect others to be equally considerate.

Annoyance- most of the electrical outlets need to be serviced. Spend $300 and have an electrician repair or replace. Many didn't work, some only 1/2 of the receptacles did.

The lighting in the kitchen is very dark so cooking and prepping can be a challenge. Cookware is circa 1990's , but there is plenty of it.

Replace the front porch bulb. It doesn't work and is burned out. Makes it tough to locate the house in the dark.

This is an income property and lacks pride of ownership. The cleaning is minimal and the property reflects this.

Financially speaking, this property could benefit from a $5k to $18k upgrade and be turnkey and desirable.

Owner's Response: As can be seen in the listing's photos, the home has some older appliances, but they work well. There is also an older hot tub. It is situated privately and guests enjoy the private back yard. It is hard to control neighborhood pets that do not stay in their yard as this home is out of city limits. We do welcome pets and encourage guests to do their part to keep them contained to the large yard at this pet friendly home. The owner is slowly upgrading and improving this vacation home. Recently he has replaced all the beds with very comfortable Tuft and Needle mattress sets. There is also a new TV, and there is a new pellet stove to help keep the home warm in the winters! The coffee pot is a new addition, and the owner has also since provided a standard drip coffee pot if guests prefer that.

Awesome property

  • 5 of 5

The right most sink in the bathroom drained slowly. The thistles in the back yard area need to be killed especially around the patio and hot tub. The rope swing in the back may need to be taken down, we didn't use it due to the creaking sounds made when weight was put on it. We loved the lift chair swing! Overall Everyone in my family were very pleased with the property and we would definitely stay here again!

Stay at Aim True North

  • 5 of 5

We looked at many properties when we were looking for a place in the McCall area. We are so glad we picked this one! We were extremely pleased with this property. All you need to bring is the food you want to eat and clothes you want to wear. This place has everything you need to cook whatever you want. Comfortable beds, fire pit, hot tub, nice grill, wifi, a lot of space, and nice and clean. We would return to this place!

McCall Stay

  • 4 of 5

The outside of the house was a little weathered but we expected that. The inside was beautiful and we had open spaces in the back yard area for a dog to run. We did have the neighbors dogs over quite often but that didn't bug us at all. We absolutely loved the hot tub and also it was very helpful to have laundry facilities. I would stay here again, although I think it is better for about 8 guests where we had 10 which was a little crowded.
