About Rick Spaeth

I am an idaho native and have been coming to McCall my entire life. My grandfather purchased the property where LAKESIDE is located in 1954. I had a long successful career in pharmaceutical sales before making LAKESIDE my full time business. At LAKESIDE we do our best to make sure it is in great condition at all times and a place that guests have a great time making life time memories.

Rick Spaeth purchased this lodge in 1954

Why Rick Spaeth chose Idaho

The Harris Cove Lodge is located in a unique relatively secluded part of Payette Lake. It has a beautiful view of Payette Lake and the surrounding mountains.

What makes this lodge unique

Being secluded on peaceful east arm of payette lake and having incredible lake and mountain views are just a few of the features that make the Harris Cove Lodge a great place to make life long memories with friends and family. Bordering Idaho State Forrest land makes Lakeside and the Harris Cove Lodge the perfect place to enjoy the lake and all that nature has to offer.

Perfect for Making Family Reunion Memories

  • 5 of 5

Chris W's review describes how perfect these three Lakeside Vacation Homes are (as a grouping or individually) for a family reunion or just a week of family serenity on a gorgeous lake. We had a week long family reunion with 34 people from all over the US and as far away as Taiwan, and we all loved it. It's quiet enough for deer to walk through in the morning without fear, great fun with the waterfront, and nice enough to feel like home. The owner was very responsive before and during our stay (he came to check and make sure everything was ok, which was really nice). For others who might want to do the same thing, we catered three dinners from Delish Catering (local) and the food was incredible - and all 34 of us easily fit (with a buffet line) on the large deck just above the waterfront. In addition to being only 10 minutes from McCall, it's also very close to hiking trails, horseback riding, and great white water rafting. It's also easy to rent the owner's pontoon boat or a speed boat from the marina (be sure to reserve ahead of time). I can't say enough good things about this property (all 3 houses), the owner, the lake, and the area! We hope to be back for our next reunion in 3 years.

Our family rented all three of the owner's homes in this wonderful compound: Harris Cove, Lakeside and Hawk's Nest. We had a family reunion of 32 people (adults and children). A great many came from the UK as their first trip to the US. They were very impressed! The accommodations in all three homes were fabulous. Sleeping arrangements and bathrooms suited all requests. All homes were beautifully appointed and very clean. The dock would hold 5 boats and the swimming access was perfect for both children and adults. Each home had its own balcony and outside deck with views of beautiful Payette Lake There was a common deck with many chairs and tables to hold all of us for family meals. The compound was close to the town of McCall for shopping (about a 10 min. drive). The owner was very nice to deal with and expressed his wish that everyone have a good time. We highly recommend this rental.

Wonderful 15th Annual Family Reunion with a group of 20

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 20 (10 adults and 10 children aged 7 to 15) has been having an annual family reunion for many years. Most times we rent a very large home in different parts of the country where we can all fit comfortably. Harris Cove was a wonderful choice. When you first get to it, the house looks small from the outside, but it is entirely different inside - it is very, very spacious with plenty of comfortable beds and bathrooms. The location is beautiful, and the sights around the area are fantastic. Unfortunately, the weather was awful (cold and more than half of the days were cloudy/rainy) the week we were there, but this was an uncontrollable misfortune since the week before had been warm and beautiful and so was the day we checked out with a forecast of nothing but beautiful days ahead. While we were unable to enjoy the lake as much as we would have liked, the family found plenty of other activities to enjoy in the area such as hiking, rock climbing, biking, running, golf (our one golfer who found the municipal course to be excellent), soccer and baseball in municipal fields, exercising at the local Y and a health club, hot springs, and shopping in the quaint city of McCall. The owner, Rick Spaeth, was great to deal with both before and during our stay; he is a very caring person whose desire to have his renters enjoy their stay is fully evident by his words and actions. Everything in the house was in working order with a few minor exceptions (a leaking toilet tank - fixed immediately by a plumber sent by Rick - in one of the numerous bathrooms, the dishwasher operated in the 1-hour wash cycle but not in the normal cycle, and the electric mixer in the kitchen only worked intermittently). Three suggestions to Rick for improvement: 1) Replenish the china and glassware so there are enough pieces of each type for a group of the size that fits in the house (particularly there is a need for more small plates, large and small bowls, small and large glasses, and wine glasses); 2) Improve the internet service so it can reliably, continually handle many devices; and 3) Consider putting in a ping pong table and/or a pool table that could be shared by the three houses in your large property, making sure they are in a covered area so it/they can be used in rainy days.

Wonderful House led to Wonderful Memories

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house (Harris Cove Lodge) as a central location for a Thanksgiving Family Reunion. We had ten adults and six children stay here for five nights. Because the house is so spacious, there was always somewhere to go to get away from the noise in order to relax, read a book or take a nap. Rick, the owner, was very helpful and quick when responding to our questions. The house was very clean but in need of a deep clean (i.e. under the couches, fan blades, etc.). We had a hard time with the third floor overheating but eventually figured it out. The lake, although quite cold in November, was beautiful to look at, especially from the cabin. McCall, the nearest town, has a small town feel to it that supported the cabin getaway vibe - there is even a knitting store. This lodge is wonderful.

Fabulous big house for a big family!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 20 adults and 22 kids rented all three homes for a week in July 2015. Rick was very personable and easy to deal with, answering our emailed questions promptly. The accommodations were clean, comfortable, and spacious. Harris Cove Lodge's fully furnished kitchen meant our family was able to eat dinners together in big kitchen/living room/deck. The 2 fully furnished kitchens in the other houses were used every day for breakfast and lunch.

People hung out on the beautiful dock, swam, paddle boarded, kayaked, and floated in rafts every day. Several people enjoyed nearby Ponderosa State Park, McCall's skateboard park, white water rafting, hiking, golfing, mountain biking, rock-hounding, and soaking in Bergdorf Hot Springs. The weather was perfect, and those of us from Minnesota appreciated the lack of mosquitoes. We rented Rick's pontoon boat for a day, a highlight of the week for adults and children.

Our group would happily return to this property. The consensus was that out of 32 annual family reunions, this was the best ever!

Party of 12

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at the Harris Cove Lodge. Everything was top notch and clean. Great kitchen with new appliances. Big screen TV and lots of DVD's along with satellite TV. Plenty of beds for the whole family. Great view and an easy walk down to the lake. Rick has a really great dock for our boat. We just love this place, will be back next year. Thanks Rick.
