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.

Pleased for most part, but outdoor living area needed attention

  • 4 of 5

Great spot near top of mountain. Beautiful house with great windows. Coffee maker on fritz and some pillows for porch missing, but management delivered them same day. Only complaint was outdoor screened in porch was filthy and needs a good power wash.

Went up to celebrate with friends for my birthday however we found a few things broken when we walked into the cabin. Nice area and a very spacious cabin.

Beautiful clean home in a nice location.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying in the Idlewild cabin very much. The owner was very quick to respond to all correspondence. The home was very clean and well equipped for a small or large group. There is plenty of space both upstairs and downstairs for all guests.

If you are looking to stay on the Boyne mountain property, this is a very nice home. The home is located in a private gated section of the mountain with ski in and out access. You won't be disappointed with this home if you rent it.

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 5 night stay. The home accommodated 12 of us very well. We loved the slope side location, taking advantage of the fire pit for s'mores & grill for cooking many meals. We appreciated the addition of movies & games for the kids too. Thank you for sharing your home, we look forward to a return visit!

We spent 5 nights here. It accommodated the 12 of us perfectly. We appreciated the games & movies for the kids, fire pit is an added bonus. We were able to cook meals without trouble & utilized the grill often. You have a lovely home, we look forward to an opportunity to come back!

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning Fee $195 + Tax
Property Damage Protection $79
Tax Rate 6.0%

The Monday of MLK and Presidents Day weekends is the same as the weekend 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.
