About Rick Spaeth

After a 30 yr. career in Pharmaceutical Sales and Marketing I started LAKESIDE Vacation Homes in 2004. I was born and raised in Idaho, attended the U of I and have lived in Idaho my entire life except for a 3 yr. period when I lived in Hawaii while working for Bristol-Myers Squibb as a District Manager.

Rick Spaeth purchased this house in 1954

Why Rick Spaeth chose McCall

My Grandfather(Fred Specht: the Frederick Lakeside Lodge is named for him) purchased this property from WWI fighter pliot Norville Hines. Mr. Hines 'WWI Flight Squandron' nicknamed him the 'Hawk' because of his flying skill while engaging enemy airplanes during WWI. He called the property where LAKESIDE Vacation Homes is located the 'Hawk's Nest'. The 'Hawk's Nest' Lodge is named after Mr. Hines.

What makes this house unique

The Hawk's Nest Lodge sits on Harris Cove which is located on peaceful east arm of Payette Lake. Harris Cove is a perfect location if you want to get the most out of your vacation day. Long Summer days (6:00 AM to 10:00PM) give guests the opportunity to play a round of golf, go site seeing, hiking, exploring and still have plenty of time to come home to enjoy sunny lake activities.

We have just the right amount of shade from the towering trees at the Hawk's Nest and the other 2 LAKESIDE Vacation Homes.

Guests will enjoy incredible sunsets every night of the year - Winter-Spring-Summer-Fall!!! Summer evenings on the deck at the lake or at the Hawk's Nest Lodge are perfect for dinner, a glass of wine or cold beverage.

The Hawk's Nest Lodge is a perfect place to make life long memories with friends and family.

Hawks Nest - very family affordable and great memories!

  • 5 of 5

The owner Rick is fantastic! I have been bring my children to ski at Brundage every year for the past decade. We have stayed in the all of Rick's fantastic cabins but the Hawks Nest has so many memories for us. The view is fantastic from the desks. Rooms are large and enjoyable to stay in. I brought another generation with me this time. My grandson who is 5 was snowboarding the first trip up the chair. If you ask him the cabin is great fun. We even had a treasure hunt around the cabin. Games all night in front of the fire and guitar sessions like in the movies. My children love this place and I just cannot believe the hardships we have over come in life. One thing we will continue to do as a family is stay on this beautiful lake. The Hawks Nest is perfect for my large family. Last year only a few family members could make it and the cabin was just as wonderful! I love this place and have nothing but praise for the professional and very friendly landlord Rick. Year after year he has always accommodated our some times off the wall requests. Great guy, great place and best of all memories that you will never forget!

Best Location for A Big Family Reunion!

  • 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!
