About Lyle & Kathy Hendricks

Your hosts are Lyle and Kathy Hendricks. Lyle is an accomplished machinist and with Kathy by his side, they own and operate Hendricks Manufacturing, Inc. Lyle is originally from Wisconsin and Kathy from Connecticut. They met at the Sun ‘n Fun Airshow in Lakeland, Florida, got married in Moose Pass, Alaska and lived in the Los Angeles area before moving to Orofino in 2003. They met through their love of aviation and enjoy flying and traveling in their 1965 Mooney M20E in addition to hunting, fishing, back country four-wheeling and camping and generally loving the outdoors. The cabin has been their labor of love in Orofino and they are proud to finally be able to share it with the rest of the world.

Lyle & Kathy Hendricks purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Lyle & Kathy Hendricks chose Idaho

The cabin is located on the property next to our primary residence so we are close by if you need anything.

We love the location of our properties because we are close to the Clearwater River, Dworshak Reservoir and just 60 minutes from the Clearwater National Forest.

We are on 50 very private acres at the end of the road yet we are only 5 miles from downtown Orofino and our airplane which is based at the Orofino Airport.

What makes this cabin unique

We love all the privacy and space on the property. We can run our dog off-leash on the cabin road without worrying about traffic and they love the exercise. Sometimes we walk and sometimes we go along on the ATV.

There is always some sort of wildlife to view on the property. Frequent visitors are whitetail deer, coyotes, turkey, eagles, hawks and pheasant. We often spot elk however they are a bit more elusive. We have seen black bear on the property, but it is a rare and delightful treat.

There is something to enjoy about each of the four seasons. Spring brings long days; lush, green pastures and lots of wildflowers. We enjoy floating the Clearwater River in the hot summer. Our favorite, however, is Fall and Winter hunting seasons and we enjoy seeing visitors succeed at their hunts. Another Fall favorite is the start of bonfire season which begins October 21.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We absolutely loved this cabin! Lyle and Kathy are wonderful hosts. This place is a little piece of heaven, beautiful views of scenery and wildlife. The cabin is everything you would want it to be, immaculate, quiet, warm, cozy, secluded yet close to everything. We are recommending it to all our friends however, part of us didn't want to post this because we want it to be available.......once the word gets out.......they might have to build more cabins. He He Thank You so much Lyle and Kathy!!! WE LOVED IT!!!!

Cabin was as advertised

  • 4 of 5

Very cute, clean, and private cabin as advertised. Went during the second week of November to hunt whitetails in surrounding timber company lands outside of Pierce. Weather was abnormally warm in the 50-60 degree range for this time of year but was thankful after the fact. The road leading to the cabin from Orifino took us about 15-20 minutes on a very steep, winding, narrow road with steep drop off throughout with only one short section of guard rail. Had the road been icy or snowed upon I would have forfeited my stay and got a motel room in town (admittedly we live on the Washington coast and don't deal with driving in snow much whereas someone who is used to it may have no problem). Once again a very clean beautiful place in a beautiful private surrounding. Would consider staying again in the future but only during times of the year weather permitting.

Fantastic Cabin - Secluded, View, and Luxury

  • 5 of 5

Great place overlooking the Clearwater Valley. far enough out of town to feel real peace. I went on a working trip and would certainly come back for recreation. Great hosts, available, but very respecting of privacy too. The deck is great for star or moon gazing.

Relaxing and Romantic

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I wanted to get away for a few days to escape the city and this was the perfect place to be. Private, quiet, relaxing. The cabin is beautiful and stocked with everything you need for a comfortable stay. We enjoyed sitting on the deck with coffee and taking in natures beauty. The deer came to visit and we enjoyed a nice walk. Best part of our trip was doing nothing but enjoying our surroundings and each other's company. We were able to watch some college football and have a nice BBQ steak dinner. This place is a find. We would love to return in the future.
