Overview

About the property

Cabin, 5 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12-16)

Idlewood Cabin was built in 2011 and is a One of a Kind Custom Log Cabin built with hand hewn Appalachian square logs. Idlewood is located in the Edelweiss gated community. Edelweiss is Boyne's newest development situated slope-side in the woods above the Mountain Cabins.

Idlewood Cabin will work great for either a large 2 or 3 family group or a small intimate charming getaway. The cabin is approximately 3100 square feet on 2 levels and has 5 bedrooms ( including the Bunkroom).

Our cabin is truly Ski In Ski Out and sits right on the Helga's Hideaway ski run and is served by the Alpine Chair Lift. In fact, our road goes right under the Apline Lift. We have received many inquiries about just how 'ski in/ ski out' our cabin is. There are 2 YouTube videos down below that are filmed skiing in and out from our back door.

Our cabin is high enough on the hill that you can ski directly to the Alpine Lift, Disciples Ridge Lift and Disciples II Lift. This is important because the Alpine and Disciples II lift do not run all day every weekday. Disciples Ridge Lift is one of the primary lifts and is rarely shutdown. One of the videos below shows the run from our back door to Disciples Ridge Lift.....Hemingway to Pritchards Pass to Grices Way to Disciples Ridge Lift. Boyne has night skiing a few nights a week, our home is on the Northern part of Boyne Mountain and is not lighted.

Idlewood Cabin has a custom ski locker room that is open to the lower level family room and walks out to the ski hill. The locker room has 8 built in lockers for ski apparel and hanging racks for skis gear. The locker room is crafted with custom carpentry and has a certain nordic charm to it.

The kitchen and dining area are designed for large gatherings. The kitchen is nicely appointed and very functional. The dining room table seats 8 and the adjoing breakfast bar seats 4.

Idlewood offers 5 bedrooms, including a custom bunk room that sleeps 4.

-The Master Bedroom has a Queen Bedroom and Master Bath Suite.

- Bedrooms 2 & 3 are on the main level and each has aFull Bed. Bedrooms 2 & 3 share a full bathroom.

-Bedroom 4 is on the lower level and has 2 twin beds and shares a full bathroom with the Bunk Room.

- The Bunkroom has 4 built in bunk beds that sleep 4. The Bunkroom is cozy and has built in lockers and drawers and a large window. It is open to the game room and lower level family room. Please note that the Bunkroom is open to the area with the foosball table. There is not a door closing off the Bunkroom. The lack of a door has surprised a few guests, but it is how it works best for our sons and friends.

The sofa in the Family Room is a sleeper sofa.

As a guest at our cabin, you are considered a 'house guest' at Boyne Mountain and allowed privileges such as use of the outdoor heated pool and hot tub at the Clock Tower Lodge, no charge pick up and delivery by the Boyne Shuttle Service and discounts on lift tickets.

Our cabin is pet friendly. Your well mannered pets are welcome.

Stay at Boyne Mountain

  • 4 of 5

House was clean and very nice.

Dishes in the cupboard dirty, glasses and coffee cup had lipstick on them. Need better dishwasher soap.

Coffee pot is missing the inside filter and the other pot takes 2 hours to make a pot of coffee.

Lovely stay at Idlewood Cabin

  • 4 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our week away at Idlewood Cabin. The cabin is beautifully designed and decorated. It slept 10 of us with two bunks and pull out sofa to spare. The kitchen was well stocked with all the necessary cookware and dinnerware. Unlike our other VRBO experiences, the kitchen did not have any condiments or spices whatsoever.

Wood burning fireplaces were lovely. Great big dining table accommodated all our family and was excellent for games. The proximity to the beach and the village were also great. All of the beds were comfortable and cozy. WiFi connection was good.

Gave 4 out of 5 because some of our older family members wished that their rooms had TV's. Also there were a couple minor maintenance issues: two door knobs repeatedly fell off, cups and mugs were quite distressed, bathroom drawer kept coming off the track, dishwasher worked well but was not attached to cupboard and had a lot of build up. We bought a dishwasher cleaner and it only slightly removed the build up. All things we can live with but thought a good idea to mention.

Cabin has lots of movies, books and games to enjoy. Would love to come back during ski season to utilize the custom ski locker.

Thanks for having us Sanderson family- we got our "sparkle back" and we're happy to head home to reality!

Great summer retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent property! We were able to fit 4 families 8 adults and 8 kids surprisingly comfortably. Screened in porch was a bonus and excellent fire pit. Everything was as expected and very spacious. Lots of unique decorations. If your looking for a boyne mountain home this is in an excellent spot. Easy in/out and close to everything.

The home was beautiful! It was clean, tastefully decorated and fully equipped. Loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

We chose slope-side for a combined family trip. There were 12 of us in total. The home was beautiful! It is immersed in beautiful trees and we could only imagine how gorgeous it is in the winter covered with snow. The home felt very spacious with the lofted ceilings and there was plenty of room for leisure and sleeping. The beds were very comfortable though the bunk beds had thin mattresses and if I were to suggest something to improve on, it would be to replace those mattresses. The kids did complain. Though I was very impressed with the owners of the home. The fire alarm battery on our second day started beeping up on the lofted wall and the blinds were missing from one window in a bedroom. I texted Scott in the morning and while we were out having fun that day, the battery was changed and the blinds were replaced. We were very impressed. As for the kitchen...wow!! That was stocked very well with many kitchen gadgets, pans and utensils. It had everything! We were very pleased. It is so close to Deer Lake which our kids loved since there were complimentary canoes & kayaks. We enjoyed the paddle boards for a minimal fee as well. It was clean and the staff was friendly. Down at the lodge the kids loved the arcade. The indoor water park looked fun but we opted to enjoy outdoor water sports, though in bad weather, it would have been a fun alternative. There was a lot to do down at the lodge from ski lifting up to the top of the mountain and enjoying disc golf, renting bikes, zip lining, swimming plus many more activities. We were excited to find a Kilwins ice cream shop on property as well. We really liked the pool and hot tub every night at the clock tower.it was very clean.

As for location, it was perfect! We enjoyed many places in the area with only a short drive. We rented a tritoon on Lake Charlevoix, searched for stones at Petoskey State Park and made the trip up to Mackinac Island. All of those places were wonderful and relaxing. We really enjoyed the various water-front downtown areas as well for shopping and dining. On Friday night, we discovered the little downtown of Boyne City and were greatly surprised with it's charm. It is set on beautiful Lake Charlevoix and it so happened that every Friday night they have musicians on every block with fun free give aways for the kids. We saw so many sweet smiling faces with balloon characters in tow. It was pure fun! We loved staying at slope-side and would definitely recommend it!

Great Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay especially for a large group. We had nine grandchildren with us and the lower family room was great. They were entertained with the games and movies provided. There were enough dishes and silverware for all. Loved walking the paths, the beach, the pool, the water park, walking on the green in the evening, and golfing. We all had a great time.

Idlewood Cabin is truly ski in / ski out during the primary ski season. In December and later in March the Alpine lift will probably be closed and you will need to shuttle down to base ski area. Early and Late Ski Season pricing reflects substantial discounts because of this.
