About the Property

5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms across from private beach

Log cabin with 4 bedrooms, plus a multi-purpose room, 2 baths, on 1/2 acre. There's room for toys and their trailers on the property (off-street parking).

In the summer, beach access (but no boat facilities) is included in rental fees. In fact, the beach access is directly across the street from the cabin. There is a filtered (trees) view of the lake from the living room. Between the beach, the lake, the neighborhood restaurants, and proximity of downtown McCall, it's possible to leave the car parked for a week vacation and never miss it.

In the winter, this location is as close as it gets to property near Brundage Mountain Ski Area with Idaho's best powder skiing. The snow is phenomenal - light and deep. You're also an hour from Riggins where you can raft or fish the mighty Salmon River - the longest undammed river in the continental U.S.

With 5 bedrooms there is plenty of room for two families. We have two queen beds, a twin over full bunk bed, a twin bunk bed set, a twin day bed, and a double futon. There is a full (tub/shower and toilet) bathroom on each floor. We offer all linens and bedding but expect you to bring your own soaps, shampoos, and beach towels.

A fully stocked kitchen is perfect for cooking an elaborate or simple meal when you want to stay home. We provide all the cooking pans, dishes, and utensils. Or, you can barbeque on the deck with the gas grill. There's a fire pit for s'mores.

If you want to eat out, you have lots of choices from walking (.5 miles) to the Shore Lodge (fine dining and cocktails), or Lardo's (bar/restaurant).

We have two TVs with DVD players. There's also a washer and dryer for extended stays.

There are endless outdoor activities all four seasons in McCall if you want to leave the lake and beach. We can suggest activities and help you plan an adventure.

Car: Recommended

This property is literally across the street from the Boydstun Beach. This private beach access is included with the rental of the property. There are picnic tables, sand, and a dock (day use only). Property fronts Warren Wagon Road an historic road going into Idaho's remote backcountry. Drive to Burgdorf, a rustic and remote hot springs in the summer, or snowmobile there in the winter. There are mountain bike trails all over and the hiking, fishing, and backcountry adventures on motorcycles, ATVs, and jeeps are endless.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

About: My wife and I are both from the west. I am from Boulder, CO. and my wife from Elko, NV. We love Idaho for its outdoors. There is no other state with such accessible backcountry. The Idaho lifestyle is such that a 'regular joe' can mountain bike, ski, kayak, etc. from his house and be down to the corner bar for a beer at the end of the ride, float, or run. Specifically the camping, fishing, rafting, kayaking, mountain biking, and skiing is just fantastic. Idaho is two-thirds public land and we love to run around in it. We are not rich but we feel that way because we get to live where we do and have vacation cabins in such beautiful places. We can share with you how nice it is to vacation in Idaho.

Why McCall, ID, USA:
We bought this property because it is right across from Payette Lake. Payette Lake is a beautiful alpine lake that might remind you of a miniature Lake Tahoe. The water is clear and cool (not cold) in the summer. In the winter it is frozen being at 5000 feet. Since we're not rich we felt lucky to find the closest property to the private neighborhood beach access (30 feet away and across the street). Lakefront properties are a million dollars and up for the smallest shacks on this lake. If that weren't enough, the cabin is a half mile from the Shore Lodge (nicest public resort lodge and restaurant in McCall, as well as Lardo's bar/restaurant. With a bike you can go anywhere in McCall in minutes including the grocery store and the many restaurants. McCall isn't so big that you get lost. It is an outdoor playground but everyone is there for the same reason - to enjoy it. It's not an Aspen or Sun Valley with lots of conspicuous wealth. Everyone fits in here. Its outdoor amenities (and lack of crowds) rival any other mountain town. It has a nightlife and there are some places to spend money. However, spending money is not the main reason why people are here. We are fortunate enough to have bought and built another log cabin in Garden Valley, Idaho. If you really want to 'get away from it all' you might want to check out our VRBO listing #194331. Both cabins are in beautiful places and we like to share them.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
This is an unassuming rustic Idaho log cabin on the outside but a comfortable, renovated space on the inside. You won't have to rough it. The 4 bedrooms (and a bonus room) and are nice and cozy. There's plenty of space on the deck to relax. You are only steps from the beach access. This property is perfect for two families to share.
