About Rick Spaeth
I had a 30 year career in Pharmaceutical Sales until 2004. In June of 2004 I started LAKESIDE Vacation Homes and have enjoyed meeting families from literally all over the world ever since. It has been very rewarding and fun to see families and their children having fun like we did when my family vacationed at this same location!!!
Rick Spaeth purchased this House in 1954
Why Rick Spaeth chose McCall
My Grandfather (Fred Specht - the Frederick Lakeside is named for him) bought this property in 1954. It is more than a vacation property to me and has always been a very special place. I enjoy seeing families make life long memories like we did when I was a young boy with my family and friends.
What makes this House unique
This location is as good as it gets on Payette Lake. We have long summer days and beautiful sunsets all year long. The large conifer trees that surround the houses provide just the right amount of shade during the summer. The Payette National Forest is literally just out of the back door across Eastside Dr. It gives guests a place close by for hiking, jogging, quiet walks and mountain biking. This location gives this property a 'secluded' feeling you will not find on the West Side of the lake or off of Warren Wagon Road. The property and houses are kept very clean and we are constantly doing things to keep the houses in great condition. Linens and towels are kept fresh and new. We replace them often. All of the kitchen appliances were replaced and new in 2012.

Cozy & Clean!
The cabin was very cozy and clean! We had a little trouble getting vehicles up the hill with the snow and ice, even with 4-wheel drive, so we did have to go get chains for those! Overall, though, it was a great stay and I would highly recommend this cabin for those traveling to McCall with a bigger family or group of people.
Beautiful home and location!
Wonderful long weekend stay. The lodge was comfortable, updated and had all the necessities. Owner was very receptive when contacted. The lodge conveniently located close to McCall. Easy drive to Brundage.
Do heed warnings about the driveway if you are visiting in the winter. 4WD and chains were needed to get up from the lower level. Lots of parking up at the street level, however.
Beautiful spot, best for the spring and summer!
We rented this home for the Winter Carnival and had a great time. Plenty of room for all of us and the beds were all nice and big and comfy. A couple of items to note for potential renters: When the description says 4WD recommended, in the winter months, it really is a necessity. We have a very heavy SUV and had new tires, so we were fine. However, our friends did not fare as well. The driveway is extremely steep and long. The snow was packed and it was raining so the drive was one big sheet of ice. Just bring the right vehicle or use this in the warmer months.
Also, we were at capacity with guests and there were only two towels in each bathroom. No problem, just be aware and bring your own. :)
The location can't be beat if you are a boater or want to play in the water! Fun stuff!!
Thank you for your review. I do my best to communicate with guests before and during reservations. Since Expedia is now running VRBO it has become very difficult to communicate directly with guests. I'm sorry that this guest had trouble with the lane down to the house. I drive my "Ford Expedition" up and down the road several times each week to make sure it is in good shape. 4WD and AWD vehicles with good All-Season Tires are required. 2WD vehicles will not work!!! There is parking for 2WD vehicles at the top of the LAKESIDE lane.
Here is the road information I send to each guest when there is snow and ice (November-April):
"FYI: You will need 4WD or AWD vehicles with good ALL-Season tires. LAKESIDE Vacation Homes is on a sloped lot. We have our own snow removal equipment and keep the road in "good condition" (plowed with ice melt). There is parking for 2WD vehicles at the top of the LAKESIDE lane."
The housekeepers at all 3 LAKESIDE Vacation Homes put extra towels in the bathroom vanity drawers since there are not enough towel racks for all of the towels.
The Frederick Lakeside Lodge and Hawk's Nest Lodge have 12-15 towels available for each reservation.
The Harris Cove Lodge has 24-26 towels available for each reservation.
Each house has laundry facilities if towels need to be laundered.
Evidently this guest found the towels after this review because there were 12 towels that needed to be laundered.
We do our best to make sure that if there are any issues during a reservation that we take care of it ASAP.
Great family cabin!
With family coming from California and Washington, this was a perfect family cabin for 6 adults and 5 kids. Beautiful in winter, but the snow made it tough to drive all the way down to the cabin. So we parked on the road, up top, instead. It also would have been nice to have one more bathroom. Looking forward to coming back in the summer and taking advantage of the lake and decks.
Lovely location and beautiful home that easily accommodated our group of 8.
We loved the place. The view is amazing and the home is really gorgeous. We spent Christmas here and had a wonderful time.
Frederick Lakeside Lodge
My family has stayed at Rick's lodges nearly every spring for 13 years now. We love these cabins!! Rick has always been friendly to do business with, and the lodges are comfortable and clean, and close to town. We just stayed at the Frederick Lakeside Lodge, right on the water, and really enjoyed it. I had my one-year-old with me and never felt like the balcony or cabin was unsafe for little kids. The location is beautiful. Definitely recommend.
