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.

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. 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!!!!

Nice private place

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was very nice. It looks new and was very clean. It was very quiet and peaceful. You felt like you were in a remote location, but the town of Orofino was very close by.

GETAWAY FROM IT ALL BUT CLOSE TO IT ALL IN OROFINO!

  • 5 of 5

Staying in the Clearwater Cabin was one of the major highlights of our vacation! This sweet, beautiful cabin had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Although Kathy and Lyle live nearby, and Kathy was quick to graciously answer all of our questions, we enjoyed total privacy,. The spotless cabin is very comfortable, in a beautiful forest setting away from it all, yet only minutes from downtown Orofino. The town has several restaurants (Fiesta en Jalisco was our favorite) and some good grocery stores, which gave us the choice to enjoy the local cuisine or take advantage of the well-stocked kitchen at the cabin. Clearwater Cabin is perfect for couples, but beware: there are several levels in this house, and though not a problem for us, care must be taken concerning steps. Although it was too warm to use during our stay, the wood-burning stove was ready to go, with plenty of extra split logs on hand. Several decks provide ample opportunity for enjoying outdoor meals and stargazing over a beverage. The beautiful drive up to the house is exhilarating, overlooking the lovely Clearwater River valley. We enjoyed watching "our" flock of wild turkeys daily as they strolled through the property, and we lost count of the deer and squirrels! Many local guide books are on hand at the cabin with enough information to keep one busy checking out the area. A favorite daytrip of ours included a visit to the most interesting Dworshak Dam and Reservoir. The visitor center is not to be missed, with its small but very educational museum and movies about the dam, logging and of course, the fish! An additional note: for golfers, the Orofino Golf Course and Country Club is a great place to play, located just south of town on the Clearwater River -- you can see it from the cabin! All of the kitchen equipment we needed, plenty of linens, a convenient laundry area, gorgeous solitude - we lacked nothing at Clearwater Cabin. Kathy and Lyle, you have provided a wonderful getaway that we hope to return to in the future. Thank you both for offering this lovely, very well-maintained cabin!

gorgeous cabin with perfect solitude!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a real gem of a cabin...look no further. This cabin is near to town, but removed enough to make you feel like you are on your own private hideaway. The design and layout of the cabin is perfect with a really nice kitchen, bath, and even laundry room. The owners (Lyle and Kathy Hendricks) have selected just enough furniture to make you comfy without any clutter. There are plenty of little touches throughout that give you the feeling we all crave when we seek that special "cabin" vibe. The land around is loaded with deer and critters for wildlife viewing. And the beautiful Clearwater river is just a short drive. This is a special spot....enjoy!

Terrific remote retreat cabin , truly away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great escape to this remote, very well designed cabin near the Clearwater River. Quiet, restful location, immaculate, nicely equipped and furnished. We enjoyed meals out on the deck, and our comfortable loft bedroom!
