This cabin is right next to state land, there is a great view from inside and plenty of forest to hike or snowshoe right off the deck. Only 1 mile from downtown!

The perfect setting for a family BBQ, outside you have a grill and a view, and inside the kitchen comes fully stocked with everything you need to be chef, baker or griller extraordinaire.

There are three bedrooms (including master bedroom), each with a custom aspen queen log bed. Master bedroom features a beautifully tiled bathroom, large tub and shower with custom crafted vanity. If you need more beds, there is the futon in the loft and 2 twin size mattresses, plenty of linens and blankets. The mud room has an eco-friendly washer and dryer. Ipod speakers and does have access to your own wireless plans (if you have your own mobile phone or laptop with plan).

You will find a personal touch on the inside, with handcrafted log and wood furniture. The owner, Mark, has always had a way with his hands, and it shows in the craftsmanship. Log beds, stools, dining table, side tables, all crafted out of aspen and recycled dock wood.

About Mark and Renee Lothrop

Home sweet away from home. This is a cabin rental with a story. We hope that you can enjoy the personal touch that not many other vacation rentals can offer. Mark and Renee met while working in McCall, Idaho. Mark was a smoke jumper and Renee was a fire lookout. Before moving away they purchased the land. After 25+years of saving, and 3 years building with finishing touches, this cabin is now Mark and Renee's home sweet away from home. And now it can be yours too.

Why Mark and Renee Lothrop chose McCall

We love McCall and to explore all the surrounding areas.

What makes this Cabin unique

Our family enjoys the time at the cabin more than anything. Lots of memories are made at nearby hot springs, skiing at Brundage ski resort, relaxing on the beach at Payette Lake and of just hanging out at the cabin. We hope you enjoy the home sweet away from home. This cabin's covered wrap around deck is enjoyable because it sits right next to a very scenic state forest. We have been known to go huckleberry and morel mushroom hunting right out the door.

                                                  We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful log house. The kitchen had everything we needed and was the perfect size. The layout of the house and the patio made it so comfortable for our large group. We definitely come back to stay.

                                                  Great owners! Very responsive to any questions. Well stocked kitchen. Would definitely rent again!

                                                  Ladies' Getaway Weekend

                                                  Kate O.

                                                  We had a great weekend in this lovely home. The pictures don't do it justice; It's even nicer in person. The huge deck wraps around two sides of the home and provides a great place to relax while looking out at the woods. Our first night there a deer wandered up and ate nearby while we were visiting.

                                                  There were seven people in our party and there was plenty of room for everyone. It's a comfortable home with every amenity. It's in a quiet area, and just a short drive from town. We're already planning to come back next year, except that we want to stay longer.

                                                  Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!
