About the property

Very Large Entertainment Home with 360 degree Mountain Views

Lava Family Inn is located just minutes from Downtown Lava Hot Springs with swimming, tubing, parks, restaurants, shopping, grocery stores, museums, etc. If you are a skier, Pebble Creek Ski Resort is also just minutes away.

Our property is a fully furnished, 7 bedroom, 5 ½ bath, vacation home. Ideal for large or multiple family reunions, retreats, weddings, and receptions. Perfect backdrop for family photos. The home is very secluded, with surrounding vegetation, grassy yard, small pond and a stream that run through, with wildlife to be seen almost daily, especially in the mornings and evenings.

Located in Southeast Idaho-- an hour and forty five minute drive north from Salt Lake City. Surrounded by mountains of public land with trails that are perfect for hikes, walks, biking, dirt biking, four wheeling and horse back riding. Portnuef River is located just below the property with sportsman access for excellent trout fishing. The river has several watering holes for swimming close by, or just watching its many waterfalls. Floating the Portnuef River at Lava Hot Springs is both entertaining and relaxing -especially during the hot Summer months.

Lava Hot Springs is not the only hot springs to visit in Idaho. 46 miles East of our family home, you should visit Soda Springs, Idaho one of the worlds only captive geysers! Now capped and controlled by a timer, the geyser erupts every hour on the hour reaching heights of 100 feet year round.

Our Vacation Home sleeps up to 24 in beds with plenty of extra room for air mattresses, sleeping bags or cots.

About Joel Kilpack

I am the oldest boy of 12 children and have 4 children and 1 grand baby. I grew up in West Bountiful, Utah, where I learned to milk at the age of 5, and milked alone at the age of 7. Growing up as a family we made several trips, to Idaho to visit the Crossleys with the Potato harvest, and went fishing afterwards. The trips to Idaho as a young boy, is when I fell in love with Idaho. My parents also made trips to Missouri, and on occasion was able to go, when our milk cows had dried up. My parents ended up buying a farm in Missouri when I was 12, of which my parents still live there today, and Milk a cow together morning and night.

I have been Electrical Engineer for 26 years, and have done work all over the US as well as countries abroad. I currently work an engineer in Idaho, traveling as an engineer have basically stopped. Being able to work from home in 2006 and fairly close to an airport, I decided to buy this place in Idaho. In 2007 I added 3000 sqft to the home, and 2010 the older part of the house was remodeled, making it a great place for family gatherings. This was my primary residence until 2011, where I accepted a position with a large engineering firm out of state in the Kansas City Area, fairly close to the family farm. Missing the people and the lovely state of Idaho, I decided to move back in 2016. My housing manager and I both live close to this property, which is nice so I can also host reunions of my large family.

Joel Kilpack purchased this house in 2006

Great Family Reunion Property!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this wonderful home! We had everyone under one roof - and it was so much fun! We love the property with lots of beautiful shade trees and room to play. The drive to Lava was quick - and it was nice to be just a few minutes out of town when we were done with our activities for the day!

Great Gathering place

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here with our family. We were able to participate in activities nearby and then return home to a cool, comfortable, and very quiet out of the way place.

Would consider coming here again.

Plenty of room for everyone

  • 5 of 5

We had a pretty large group, so it was hard to find a place that fit the bill for us. We spent half our weekend at the Hot Springs, so this was close enough so we could do that. The grandkids spent most of their time outside and they enjoyed the swingset very much. We brought games for them to play while inside. Some of our group did not like that there was no wi-fi, but for most of us, it was no problem at all. It was a peaceful and quiet place to stay and we enjoyed it very much.

Fun property!

  • 3 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here at Lava Family Inn. The outside area was great for the kids to play for hours. The whole yard is shaded most of the day so we enjoyed being outside a lot. The kitchen and dining area worked great for our large group. A few things we would have liked better- Better control of the temperature inside, Air conditioning in the loft, it got too hot up there during the day, blinds in the master bathroom, and more parking.

Overall, we really did enjoy our stay here. It worked great for our group.

The outside scenery is beautiful, plenty of shade. The main kitchen and master bedroom are amazing.

  • 4 of 5

We held a family reunion and 50th anniversary celebration for my parents with 37 people at this property, the “Lava Family Inn”. Joel (the owner) and Michelle (the “innkeeper”) were wonderful to work with, quickly responding through the VRBO website early on, and back-and-forth with text later. They were very flexible and helpful in accommodating our plans with things such as early access to the refrigerators in the house, etc.

The property itself is beautiful. There is lots of shade from many mature trees over a nice lawn, and the outside has a nice feeling of seclusion. It is very peaceful sitting by the pond, and there was a flock of > 30 wild turkeys roosting in the trees and observable on the property at various times.

The main floor kitchen and living area is beautiful. It has seating at the bar and at tables for 26 people. It has double ovens, a huge microwave, a huge gas stovetop, a large refrigerator, and a gargantuan pantry. We had no problem gathering everyone there at mealtimes.

The master bedroom is beautiful. The bed is gigantic (it used to belong to Karl Malone). The double shower is very nice. We were a little disappointed the jetted tub was “out of order” for the duration of our stay.

The upstairs bedrooms, kitchen, and living room were all very spacious and nice. It was easy for those who needed to to be able to “spread out” and get away from noise, etc as needed.

The ceilings downstairs are pretty low (but then, I am 6’2”). You can tell that the bedrooms, bathroom, and living room down there were added to an older “Idaho farmhouse” basement. They are very functional, but aren’t as nice and don’t seem as modern as the upstairs accommodations.

The house was nice and cool (A/C worked as expected). There are thermostats in various locations for adjusting as needed. There are several nice decks outside with easy access in and out of the house and to & from the yards at several locations. There is a nice little swing set and slide for kids.

We very much enjoyed the accommodations and our experience at this property. Thank you Joel and Michelle!
