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.

                                                                  Alison R.

                                                                  It's hard to believe but the cabin is even more beautiful in person than the pictures. We were a group of 12 (6 adults, 6 teenage boys) and the layout of the home was perfect. The boys had all the room and privacy they needed downstairs and the adults were able to enjoy the gorgeous main floor. Huge picture windows on both floors provided spectacular views and let in tons of sunshine. The ski in / ski out set up was fabulous - just a quick run down the trail outside the back door to a chair lift. The cabin itself was well equipped with amenities; lots of firewood, plenty of dishes, utensils, cookware, and towels. Since the cabin was on the resort property we were able to take full advantage of the shuttle when we wanted to head down to the village, which was really convenient.

                                                                  Great spot and very nice home.

                                                                  Christopher H.

                                                                  Great ski weekend with plenty of room for adults and kids. Beds were comfortable and House was clean. Great fireplace and outdoor living.

                                                                  "Home Base" For A Great Family Vacation

                                                                  Rick C.Spring Lake, MI

                                                                  This was our second rental - because the first was everyone's "favorite vacation ever" and we wanted to enjoy a long ski weekend with the kids & grandkids again. The cottage is made for a large group, and as the family has expanded a bit since our last visit, we needed to use the table and the counter for meal time. Other than that, plenty of space for all and the cabin is made for a great experience on the slopes - ski in / ski out and plenty of room for everyone to get their gear on and off and stored.

                                                                  Lots of towels, lots of firewood, plenty of dishes and glasses, pots, pans (but bring your soap, shampoo etc.) - everything was ready for our crew to unpack and enjoy our time together.

                                                                  Awesome House!

                                                                  Jordan W.

                                                                  This house was beautiful and there was plenty of space. However. there were a lot of things that were broken in the house. Also, if you're planning some sort of a "weekend" with people. Be advised, they have like 1,000 santa clauses all over the house. I had to tuck some away because I was afraid someone would just bump into it walking by and it would break. I was surprised that they would leave all of the items out when people are renting just because of possibility for damages.

                                                                  Other than that, the house was great. It was in a great area, quiet neighborhood and there was tons of room for people.

                                                                  Great place to stay

                                                                  Tax Rate

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.
