About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

This bright and airy lakefront home in Donnelly offers a tranquil setting for a back-to-nature getaway or fun family trip. The gourmet kitchen, ample windows, and gleaming laminate hardwood floors will enhance your stay with comfort, while the private dock, beach access and picturesque lake views provide a blissful, natural retreat. Donnelly is home to Lake Cascade, Payette National Forest and the Middle Fork of the Payette River, making this property a great scenic escape!

The main floor is sunny and open with tall, slanted ceilings, recessed lighting, and plush area rugs. There's a built-in wood-burning fireplace with a rustic rock facade for chilly nights, and plenty of comfortable seating. The warm and inviting color palette of the living room creates a relaxing setting for an evening unwinding with a glass of wine or movie watching. In the afternoon, you can head out one of the three French doors off the living room to sip some green tea on the deck overlooking Lake Cascade. The sofa converts to a queen bed, providing extra sleeping room for two if needed.

The open downstairs floor plan also includes seating for six around the dining room table and a fully stocked, modern kitchen with Bosch appliances, dark granite countertops, and everything needed to create delicious meals. Whip up a hearty lakeside picnic for a lazy afternoon hanging out by the water or perhaps some mid-morning muffins featuring the late summer's local harvest of fresh, plump huckleberries. For meals outside the home, Buffalo Gal in the small downtown area of Donnelly is a mere six miles away and offers a selection of internationally-inspired small plates. The city of Cascade is also just a short 20- minute drive to the south, and has a number of restaurant choices including pizzerias and diners.

The main floor of this house boasts a medium-sized, welcoming bedroom with a queen brass bed and access to the deck through another French door. The soothing earth tones of this room provide a restful environment for sleeping or just unwinding at the end of an adventurous day. The main level bathroom contains a modern vessel sink, steam shower and heated tile flooring for an extra touch of pampering.

Head upstairs, and you'll find the spacious gold and cream decorated master suite, featuring a cloud-like king sized bed, and more French doors leading out to a balcony with a beautiful tree-lined lake view - a perfect oasis to recharge and unwind. Wake each morning and sip coffee on the lakeside balcony while contemplating the day's activities ahead. The master bath contains a large jetted tub for leisurely soaks and heated floor tiles to keep your feet nice and toasty on chilly mornings. With two bedrooms, a sofa bed and two full baths, this house sleeps six comfortably and is perfect for a small family or two couples traveling together.

Other amenities of the home include an HE front-loading washer and dryer, thermostats both upstairs and downstairs for heat and A/C, DVD player, VCR, WiFi, two-car garage, and a gas grill, making this house the perfect choice for extended stays or working vacations!

Outdoor activities in Donnelly are numerous year-round, and include holiday sleigh rides, elk feedings, skiing, golfing, hiking, climbing and rafting. This is a great spot for fishing too! Bring your gear and spend your days catching steelhead, rainbow trout, salmon, bass and perch for the freshest fish dinner imaginable.

In August, the Donnelly Chamber of Commerce hosts the annual Huckleberry Festival - two feast-filled days of celebrating the area's famous huckleberry bounty, complete with a food fair, parade, Huckleberry Trot run, Sunday morning pancake breakfast and mountains of homemade huckleberry pies. It's an event you won't want to miss!

Spend your Donnelly vacation in comfort at this bright and spacious Shadows Lakefront home, enjoying the best the area has to offer, relaxing lakeside and exploring the natural beauty of the area.

About Vacasa, ID - McCall Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Such an amazing trip!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! I'm not going to go into detail of everything we loved about it because we want it to be available for our next trip up. Selfish, yes, but this place is truly a gem.

Perfect Fit

  • 5 of 5

This location was a perfect fit and we thoroughly enjoyed the convenience of a lake front and private dock. The cabin was clean, comfortable, and kid friendly. We will definitely be staying here again. Thank you
