About the property

Clean & comfortable 4 BD, 2 BA. Perfectly located, 5 houses from Davis Beach

Our cabin is in a great location and in a beautiful forested setting, with a very short walk to the lake and community dock. Just 5 houses from the water, we are perfectly situated on a quiet street that dead ends at the beach, which makes our place especially appealing for families who want their kids to be able to run back and forth to the beach.

Freshly carpeted and painted throughout, our home is warm and well appointed. The open floor plan connects the living room, dining room and kitchen and is great for large families or groups of friends. The charming gas fireplace provides cozy ambiance at the flip of a switch.

There is one bedroom on the main floor with twin beds, located just off the dining room. The other three bedrooms are located upstairs. Two have comfortable queen beds, across the hall from one another. Both bedrooms have access to a wide balcony that faces Ponderosa State Park. Our spacious master bedroom has a king sized bed, a large walk-in closet and a private covered deck with outdoor seating.

About Amy Isacson

Finally achieved a life-long dream to own a property in McCall. Grew up vacationing here - can't find a better spot on the planet. Hope to share the joy we have for the area with our cabin and with old and new friends!

Amy Isacson purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Amy Isacson chose McCall

When looking for our dream home, we zoomed in on this exact location. Close to Davis Beach and Payette Lake, Ponderosa State Park, golfing and town, we knew we found the chance of a lifetime to get in on this special place. So warm and cozy in the winter, the large rooms are inviting in all seasons. Just a few steps from paradise, in several directions, come see for yourself why we chose this sweet cabin in the mountains.

What makes this cabin unique

Lake and community dock access, nestled amongst the trees, close to Ponderosa Park, town and golf course. Enjoy the best side of the lake for catching sunsets!

D-log construction give our home that authentic cabin feel. Effective gas stove in the spacious living room, comfortable beds in all 4 bedrooms, 2 private upper decks, nice fenced back yard for BBQing and roasting s'mores under the stars.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were looking for a place to have a family get away for 6 adults and two small children and this home was perfect for our needs. The 4 bedrooms easily accommodated the adults and the bed rooms were large and easily accommodated the children's cribs.

Three of the up stairs bedrooms has balconies as well.

The kitchen was well equipped with dishes and appliances.

The location was a short distance from a public beach (which offered a great view across the lake at night) and a easy walk to Ponderosa State Park which offered a visitor center and many hiking and biking trials.

I was surprised by the wild life around the home which included a fox and deer feeding in the neighbors yard.

Very enjoyable setting

Great Cabin experience for Girls' Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend near Ponderosa State park. the cabin provides everything you need, including a crock pot! Kitchen well stocked, and everything was clean. Beds were super comfortable. Thank you so much for turning the heat on hours before we arrived, as it would have been freezing inside otherwise. We all commented that we would choose to stay here again with our families. It would be perfect for 2 or even more families.

Wonderful location, spacious cabin!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our Labor Day girls weekend at this property! Tons of room to spread out, the 80's arcade games were awesome. We walked down to the lake for every sunset, enjoyed hiking in Ponderosa State Park. We prepared all of our meals in house and other than a good set of BBQ tongs, we were set. The beds were comfortable other than the king size bed...owners need to consider a new mattress or invest in a foam pad. Bring your own beach chairs and towels as we could not find any. Also, we could not locate the hair dryer! Good thing we are low maintenance women! Other than these few items that need to be addressed, I would definitely return!

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to write a review ~ ! So glad you enjoyed your time at the cabin. Good to know about the bed - this is the first I have heard any issue with it. It sounds like the hair dryer has walked off, along with the beach towels! Happy to hear you took advantage of all the fun activities nearby!

The cabin fit all of us, 3 adults & 5 kids no problem! We were close to all the activities McCall has to offer and even had a couple foxes hanging out in the back yard one morning. Thanks for the stay, we are looking forward to the next trip!
