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.

Great accommodations, beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

My extended family rented Harris Cove and Fredrick's Lakeside for a family reunion and had a wonderful time at this beautiful lakeside location. Rick very generously let us use one of his pontoon boats one day and made sure that we had everything we needed to have a pleasant experience. The cabins are large with spacious and beautifully appointed bedrooms and bathrooms and fully equipped kitchens. Located on a quiet, somewhat secluded section of the lake with easy boat access, I would highly recommend these cabins for large groups and families who enjoy gorgeous scenery and water sport activities.

Frederick Lakeside Lodge

  • 5 of 5

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.

Best Family Reunion Ever!

  • 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 good to deal with, answering our emailed questions promptly. The accommodations were clean, comfortable, and spacious. Lakeside Lodge's fully furnished kitchen meant we were 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 Ponderosa State Park, McCall's skate board 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!

Great Spot

  • 4 of 5

Here are my thoughts:


- Great value for the money

- Setting could not have been nicer, hard to imagine better real estate in McCall.

- House is well laid out and very comfortable/clean.

- Great view, patio dinning was epic

- Renting Pontoon Boat was Super Fun!

- Grounds were very well maintained

- Dock was great


- Sand beach was limited which I would be fine with however with small kids it can be tight especially when shared with other guests.

- We knew the waterfront was shared with the other houses the owner manages but were put aback when a family reunion rolled in, this really made the shared common area feel very small. The family was very respectful and also surprised about how the shared area worked. In the end it was not the biggest deal in the world but definitely something to be aware of, make sure you know if someone is taking the other house as being surprised by a 35 person family reunion can throw you off.

- The owner has a little apartment below the house, I would want to make sure he is not staying there while you are renting the home. When I rent a vacation home I don't want the owner any where near the grounds, my privacy is paramount.

In the end I would rent this home again. The owner is very professional and makes the process easy. The home is beautiful and managed very well.

Winter Wonderland

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 adults spent a delightful week at the Lakeside Frederick lodge over Christmas; skiing, enjoying the quaint town of McCall, taking long walks in the forest, and most of all loving the serenity and high quality of our accommodations. The setting was a winter wonderland, and the views from the cabin were spectacular! The high ceilings and large windows made the cabin seem much larger than the pictures. The bedding and linens were luxurious and comfy. The internet, TV, fireplace, and heating worked perfectly. We were surprised how well the kitchen was stocked for being compact, and even had a roasting pan! Rick was great to work with, and answered our questions in a timely manner. If you stay in the wintertime, you definitely need a 4 wheel drive for the driveway. We were so thankful that Rick arranged snow plow service while we were there. We would love to go back again during the winter holidays, but think summer would be amazing too!
