About Branden Beier

We chose Donnelly, Idaho because it comes with great resort amenities just minutes away, yet gives you distance for true serenity. Out of all our family vacations, we have the fondest memories of our stays in the Idaho Mountains.

Whether it be riding a bike, hiking or just lounging near the lake, our family always enjoys escaping to Boulder Creek Meadows for a serene, peaceful getaway at the Donnelly cabin!

Branden Beier purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Branden Beier chose Idaho

We were looking for a nice cabin to escape to for seasonal getaways. We chose this cabin because of its proximity to the lake and easy access to all attractions in Valley County. The cabin has easement access to the lake and close access to a boat ramp.

What makes this cabin unique

Great proximity to all Valley County (McCall , Donnelly & Cascade) attractions! Breathtaking views!! Here you will find the best of the best with us!

Great place for our reunion

  • 5 of 5

This house was very nice and a perfect location for our family reunion. The house was a nice layout for our group and the only bummer was that the hot tub was broken.

Nice place, however...

  • 3 of 5

This cabin/home was very charming with beautiful, ornate furniture appropriate for the style of the house. The kitchen was well equipped - better than most places we've stayed in. Overall, this place was very comfortable, however, there were some negatives to note. There is not any space in the bedrooms to unpack your things - no hanging space or dresser drawers or even a suitcase rack. In the upstairs bedrooms there are no night stands by the beds with lamps or place to put your electronics, etc. and again, no place to unpack your things. We chose this place because it appeared to be remote in the pictures, it appeared to be very close to the lake, and it had a hot tub. The neighborhood and area is nice and the scenery and views are beautiful, however, there are houses on both sides, very close (you don't see that in the pictures). And the dog next door barked a lot. It is on a dusty road that leads to a campground, so there's quite a bit of RV traffic. The hot tub was not working. We didn't know that until after we secured the reservation with payment. The property had high weeds front and back making it difficult for our granddaughters to walk in or our small dog to go out in. It is close to the lake, but not within walking distance unless you are up to a long hike. After some exploring, we discovered a day use spot about a mile down the road at Boulder Meadows ?? It would have been nice to have that information provided. When we got there the smoke alarm was chirping. I immediately contacted the owner. The response was, they had no one in the area to take care of the issue and it would take them 3 hours to get there, so we had to go all night with that constant chirping. We could not take care if it ourselves because it was about 20' up a very high ceiling upstairs and there was no ladder on the property. Someone did show up first thing the next day, but did not realize how far up on the ceiling it was. Also, the cleaning person later showed up with a 4 foot ladder to fix it. Overall, we had a very nice time here. It was our first time to Idaho. The area was beautiful. The lake seems to be more about fishing, hiking and winter. We could not find a very good swimming spot for our 13 year old granddaughters here, but found a nice beach in McCall, which is about 15 minutes away. McCall is also the best place for grocery store and pharmacy, etc. McCall is a beautiful town on Lake Payette.

Just what we wanted

  • 5 of 5

The house was a great place for our family to gather for out annual snowmobiling trip to the McCall. There was plenty room for parking our trailer, which is usually our biggest challenge. The house was well maintained and comfortable accommodations. The kitchen was well equipped and there was plenty of room to gather for meals and games.

Amazing Last Minute Trip!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I wanted to go somewhere close for spring break and love the Donnelly area. We found this property last minute and the owner was so helpful and gave us a great couple of days. We love all the amenities the house had to offer and would definitely come back again and again. Great house for families to just relax and spend quality time together.
