A Cabin Nestled in the Mountains

Bedrooms 1
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay nights


About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Come and relax in this beautiful 1600 sq. ft. log cabin, which is located on the edge of the Challis Chipmunk Ski Hill. This home is located just 8 minutes above Challis and has easy access to hunting, fishing and ATV trails! The cabin is very quiet and secluded. You see wild game often from the cabin. We also have a bungalow just outside the rental cabin that can also be rented. The bungalow has a queen bed and sitting area with a bathroom. If you would like to rent this along with the rental cabin, mention this to the owners. The cabin is very secluded and peaceful.

Winter Conditions: During the months of November - March, a four-wheel drive vehicle is a must to drive 3/4 of a mile up to the cabin. We keep the road plowed, but it is fairly steep and can be slick. It is not dangerous, just slick.

About Mark & Kimee Needs

We, Mark and Barb Needs, are pleased to offer this cabin for rent. When we purchased the property, it had 2 cabins on it - one finished, one not. We have since finished the one and it has become our personal cabin. We then decided to rent out the second cabin. You cannot see between the cabins. There are no neighbors - except if we happen to be up to our cabin. You are totally alone in the mountains. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call or email us. Thank you and may the Lord bless.

Mark & Kimee Needs purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Mark & Kimee Needs chose Idaho

We chose to buy in this area because we love the area. Mark loves to hunt, fish and watch wildlife as do our children. We bought it for our own personal use. Then when we finished the second cabin, we decided to rent out the first one. We love the quiet mountain area and the fresh clean air.

What makes this cabin unique

When you stay in the NN Cabin, you are in the mountains, yet not too far from town. It feels like you are 100 miles from anywhere, but the golf course is just 8 miles away. The areas to hike and explore are endless. It is very very quiet and secluded.

Beautiful cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this beautiful cabin! This was a wonderful cabin to come back to after a long day of trail riding. The cabin and views were so beautiful, I almost hated to leave.

This place is absolutely beautiful, peaceful, relaxing..... we had an amazing time exploring the endless nearby trails on a 4-wheeler we rented from Mackay (Top of Idaho). The cabin is very clean and well maintained. It was a pleasure working with the owners - very friendly and helpful! Thank you for the best vacation place ever!

Sister Trip

This cabin and it's accomodations made our annual sister trip even more special. Lot's of room, and the kitchen is very well equipped. It was perfect for us, and if possible, we will be back next year.

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Our father passed away last year and because Challis was his favorite place, spending many years hunting fishing, and just enjoying the outdoors, we decided it only fitting to gather together there in his memory. We had a wonderful time and the location and property turned out to be more comfortable and appropriate than we could have ever imagined. The owners could not have been more warm and friendly and so helpful with anything we needed. It was like gathering in our own home. The bungalow, besides giving us extra space, provided a perfect quiet get away for my mother from all of the busy great grandchildren. We highly recommend this cabin for any reason, be it a weekend getaway or summer/winter vacation.

This cabin was truely a cabin nestled in the mountains! Secluded, quiet, relaxing and comfortable. It was clean and beautifully decorated. Roomy and maintained with desired amenities. The owners are very informative and accommodating. Any questions were answered and any concerns were addressed with truthful answers. That being said, the desciption of 2 bedrooms plus loft is a bit deceiving. The bed room down stairs is a beauiful large well equipt private room. The second bedroom is acually part of the loft with no privacy from the futon and hidabed. It is a great area and worked out wonderfully for us however shouldn't be confused as a 2 private bedroom unit. All in all I rate this cabin very very nice and hope to return. I would recommend it to anyone who required the needs it has to offer. Great memories were had!

Owner's Response: I will edit our page and say that the 2nd room is a loft. We appreciate your input and hope you can stay again.
