About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This log cabin vacation rental in McCall, Idaho has a handcrafted touch throughout, with custom log furniture, local artwork, and even complimentary jam for your stay! The spacious 3 bedroom cabin sleeps 8, so there's plenty of room to stretch out in the loft, hang out at the bar or chill in the hammock with a hot or cold drink on the wrap-around covered deck.

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! Cabin is near Payette Lake and 10 miles from Brundage Mountain Ski Resort. Tamarack Ski Resort is about 20 minutes away. Located up Warren Wagon Road.

This cabin has it all. At least, all you would ever need in a home sweet away from home. Vaulted ceilings, gas fireplace, covered deck, bamboo flooring, leather couches, local artwork and photography. The open loft features a futon with a big screen tv complete with a dvd collection with everyone's favorites. 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.

From $175-$250 a night (see rates) with a minimum stay of 2 nights.

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time at Mark and Renee's cabin. It is a beautiful cabin -- they did a wonderful job and is very comfortable. The wrap around porch is a fantastic place to start the day with your cup of coffee and a good book. We also enjoyed the hammock. The cabin has lots of light and beautiful views out onto the woods. We were thrilled to find it.

We also really enjoyed the area around McCall. There in the summer time, we rafted the Salmon River, kayaked on the Upper Payette, rented a pontoon boat and did some fishing on the lake and enjoyed the hot springs close by. We ran out of time and hope to be back to explore some more of the area and enjoy this cabin again. You won't be disappointed. Mark was also very helpful about making sure we had what we needed and all of our questions where answered. You couldn't ask for better hosts -- and the blackberry jam was delicious. We ate it all while we were there!

Great Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here. The cabin is in a great area that is quiet and peaceful with plenty of space for the little ones to play outside. Sleeping was great as the evenings cool down nicely and it’s very quiet and dark.

The cabin is very comfortable and the architecture is really cool. Likewise, the owner has several pieces of handmade furniture tables that go extremely well with the cabin. One of the best attractions is the wrap around deck with a hammock, a hammock chair, and other comfortable chairs. It’s a great place to eat lunch or take a nap.

The owners were great and responded immediately to any questions.

We would definitely stay here again.
