About The Owner

I manage my husbands business. We enjoy traveling with our two children. We fell in love with the Boise area when we went to visit close friends.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Idaho

We love the natural beauty of the Boise area, especially the crisp mountain air. Also we can visit our close friends several times a year.

What makes this house unique

Our home is a secluded mountain retreat while still being close to great restaurants and other cultural activities in Boise.

Guestbook comments from the manager

" Thank you so much for sharing this lovely home! This is our first trip to Idaho and I definitely want to see more. Your house is hard to describe. It just seems to be a part of the hillside. The morning light makes the inside glow. The deck is too good to be true! We spent many hours looking at the view. Thank you for sharing it."

Beautiful property. Has prefect amenities for a long or short stay.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this property for three days with 6 others. We were all able to sleep comfortably. The view was not advertised in the listing but was phenomenal. The cabin had the full amenities of a home. My only complaint was the wifi connection was not working. Despite trouble shooting directions provided in the cabin, we could not get it to work. I would also note that perhaps it would be prudent to include a warning about the drive up the final 3 miles or so. It is particularly treacherous at night without knowing the area. Despite the two small issues, it's a 10/10 in my book and exactly what we were looking for.

Awesome Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This property is worth the cost! The pictures on the site are truly what you'll experience. Breathtaking visual experience, peaceful nature, and delicious water that flows from the tap. Everything that you need to feel at home was found in the house. If you're afraid of heights, the road that leads up to the property can be a little scary, but if you go slow you're fine. Property owners are prompt on communications. Definitely recommend this property.

Breathtaking View and Very Comfortable Home

  • 5 of 5

My extended family gathered in the Boise area for a family wedding celebration and several special activities we had planned together. Staying at the log cabin was a special bonus for us and the views from the spacious porch were absolutely breathtaking!! We spent our mornings on the porch soaking in the beauty and catching up with one another, and our evenings doing more of the same. The home itself was very comfortable and accommodated our large group nicely. It is about 40 minutes from the airport and the drive up the mountain is beautiful. Joan and Thomas were wonderful hosts from the very beginning and kept us fully informed of everything we needed to know, including maps and clear directions. Next time we go to Boise we will try to stay here again.

The property was absolutely wonderful. There is nothing like having a cup of coffee inside the warm and cozy cabin and looking out over the snow-capped mountains. The cabin's location also allowed us to remain out in nature, but not be so far for quick trips back into Boise. While we didn't see any elk (we certainly searched), there were plenty of deer, grouse, turkeys and snow to look out at and a whole host of walking trails to help work off the holiday food!

Would definitely stay again!
