Beautiful Cabin Overlooking Lake Cascade and Tamarack Mountain HOT TUB INCLUDED

Bedrooms 4
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

4 Bedrooms, loft, 2 Baths (1 full and 1 half) plus outside shower; sleeps 10-12.

Come enjoy a relaxing SUMMER vacation at our spacious, private, cabin at the end of a cul de sac and only 150' to your own private sandy beach; bring your boat right up to the property. Plenty of sand for the kids to build castles and the beach has a gentle slope to the water, no dangerous drop offs for the kids. Just walk into refreshing Lake Cascade and water ski, read a book or drink foo foo drinks on the beach and we'll even supply the little umbrellas for the drinks as well as plenty of beach umbrellas in case you don't want to be in the sun for hours.

This two-story log cabin is located on Cascade Lake. Summer activities include mountain biking, hiking, fishing, a round of golf at one of the five courses in the valley and all the water sports you can handle.

In the WINTER, the skiing and snowmobiling can't be beat. Snowmobile right from the cabin to the mountains.

We have gorgeous views of the Mountains and plenty of privacy at the end of the lane. The weather in Donnelly is generally great.

In the winter, cozy up to the wood burning stove and sip hot chocolate or step outside and snowmobile through the fields next door. You can cross country ski right outside the back door through the trees or down by the beach. There is plenty of wide open space, peaceful, and beautiful scenery in all directions. It's a paradise that is too good to be true.

The best part of our cabin is it's accessible all winter long but not too many neighbors. We are at the end of a cul de sac.

The interior is spacious, comfortable, and also private with four bedrooms, two up and two down. The loft is a great place for kids to play games and watch TV and it overlooks the living area. For those cold winter nights, cozy up to the wood burning stove. We also have electric heat.

We are located 90 miles from Boise, Idaho and very close to the new Tamarack Resort - you can see the slopes from our front window. We are only 15 miles from McCall and beautiful Payette Lake. Brundage Mountain Ski Resort is about 40 minutes away.

Fall is one of our favorite times at the cabin, gorgeous weather during September and October and there is so much to do....hiking, biking, golfing, hunting, sitting on the deck in the sunshine getting those last few rays of sunshine. Lower rates and it is so quiet in the Donnelly/McCall area. Hunters welcome....why camp out in a tent when you are 15 minutes from the deer and elk and can sleep in a bed and have a hot shower and save money cooking your own meals.

About Jeanette Mather

We have lived in Boise for over 30 years and built this cabin ourselves in 1981. We have spent so many wonderful days at the cabin - snow mobiling in the winter, playing on the beach all day in the summer. The 1000s of family memories we have created here over the years are priceless. We are sure you will create some of your own lasting memories too.

Jeanette Mather purchased this cabin in 1981

Why Jeanette Mather chose Idaho

We built the cabin in 1981. We were one of the first cabins on our street, and picked the location for the lake access, breathtaking views of West Mountain and peace and quiet of being at the end of the cul de sac.

What makes this cabin unique

Countless, priceless family memories - great fun times and great relaxing times.

This was the best new year we have had!! There was a group of 3 families that stayed here. We even invited some friends to come up for the day to go snowmobiling with us. The property was so warm and inviting, It has a full kitchen and a wonderful wood burning stove that keeps the house toasty warm, but not too hot. It has a BBQ on the back deck as well as a Hot tub. Our kids had a blast! We went snowshoeing (provided at the cabin) we went snowmobiling right off the driveway (you provide) Then men took the kids to a field and snowmobiled while us ladies watched a movie in the afternoon. It was very relaxing.. The owners were Very wonderful and accommodating. The cabin was clean and had a beautiful view.. we will definitely be staying at this property again. Thinking for a ladies summer get away!!! The lake is within walking distance. If your looking for a nice getaway and great atmosphere this is the place for you.

Best Vacation Ever!!

  • 5 of 5

We took our 3 sons and their families for a week long vacation to this cabin. Their response: BEST VACATION EVER! The Mathers were very accommodating and helpful. The cabin was comfortable and had everything we needed. We spent time at the beach, rented a pontoon boat, visited the hot springs, had bonfires in the fire pit, and went on hikes. Each family did something different. If we can ever get our families together for a trip again this will be the place we'll come back to!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for renting from us and I'm so glad I got to meet you. It warms my heart when families get together at our cabin and have such a special bonding time. In our busy lives, it's so easy to "run out of time" and before you know it, the summer is over and kids are back in school. I am so glad you and your family made the effort to come so far and enjoy our cabin and beautiful Idaho.

Girls Weekend

This cabin was the perfect getaway for us girls. Jeanette was so gracious and helpful from our first inquiry to our final day there. The location was perfect with privacy and only a short walk to the sandy beach. This cabin has the true family cabin feel; we truly felt at home. We cannot wait to plan our next vacation here. Thank you again to the Mathers for sharing your oasis with us!

Spring Break

This beautiful cabin was perfect for our family get-together over spring break. Everything was so comfortable and we just loved it. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. Our two boys loved the games and exploring the area. The deck, hot tub and view were amazing. Jeannette was great to work with. I can not say enough good things about this rental.

Family Retreat

This rental was perfect for our family of 8. We cooked a Thanksgiving dinner and the kitchen had everything we needed. It rained much of the time we were there but we were very comfortable in the cabin. Jeanette was great to work with. It's a great location!
