About the property

4.5 Baths, 5 Bdrm

Welcome to our beautiful home in McCall. We recently remodeled the house and gave it a makeover, with Granite counter tops, hard wood flooring, and fresh paint. We are ready for you to have a CLEAN, FUN experience. The property is covered with trees, and parking for your family. We also have a great fire-pit for roasting s'mores while the kids play on the playhouse and run in the grass.

We are the best location you can find. Just minutes from the grocery store (for that gallon of ice-cream), 3 snow skiing locations (2 resorts/ 1 ski hill), or anyone of the local beaches.

Worried about handicap access? Not to worry. Our house has access from the garage to a wheel-chair accessible ramp as well as a downstairs master suite.

We sleep up to 24 PEOPLE IN BEDS. Grandma and Grandpa need a place to go for some quiet time? Not to worry! Our guest cabin is connected with covered access to the house with a private bath and studio kitchen.

We also have plenty of room to feed the masses; plate settings for at least 24 with seating to match...inside or out. The house has 2 large decks one over looking the playhouse and the other overlooking the fire-pit. Both decks hold several round tables (no longer provided) which makes for great barbecues.

The main level of the house contains entry way with staircase to the left and a great sitting room to the right. The sitting room has a great propane fireplace and is a great place to snuggle down and read a book. Through the entry way to the left you will find a half bath and the Master suite. To the right you will find the great room with propane fireplace (living, kitchen and nook). Through the kitchen to the right you will also find a formal dining room. To the left is a great multipurpose room. You can feed everyone, play games or even hold business meetings. This room comes equipped with a TV so presentations are not a problem. This room also has access to one of the two decks and another propane fireplace. As you continue through past the multipurpose room you will find a mud room which has access to upstairs and a door to one of the decks. This room has a great closet for drying winter clothes as there is a heater located at the bottom of the closet and an exhaust fan to pull the air up and out..keeping it smelling as fresh as wet snow clothes can be. Off the mudroom you will find a spacious laundry room with plenty of folding space and an extra refrigerator.

The second level. As you enter the house you will find a night friendly staircase that guides you back to the kitchen for those late night snacks or bottles for the babies. Once in the hallway you will find one bedroom to the right with bathroom located inside the room. No sneaking across the hallway for you! You will also find a walk-in closet in this bedroom. As you cross the hallway, you will again find another bedroom with private bath and walk-in closet. Continuing down the hallway you will find a linen closet and also another Bedroom. This bedroom has a crib to accommodate those in that stage of life; however it does not have a bath. It is also located close to the back stairs, which has great night-lighting for those trips to the kitchen.

We do not host weddings or receptions on this property!

About Candice Leonard

Dave and Carol built their dream home to accommodate their family through the years. They have 7 children and have loved living here in McCall. They moved here in 1988 and have loved it ever since. They continue to travel and always come home wondering how they are so lucky to live in McCall.

Dave and Carol continue to make wonderful memories and hope you can join with them. They downsized to a wonderful condo, while keeping their home to make family gatherings possible. Seven children, spouses and grandchildren make for a large gathering...and this home has been perfect for them! They hope you can enjoy it as much as they continue to do!

Candice Leonard purchased this house in 1996

Why Candice Leonard chose McCall

Dave and Carol have said, we designed and built this home to fit our needs as a growing family. We realized there are other families who love to gather as much as we do and so we have tried to make this house a place you can call your home away from home. We have held family reunions, new years parties and many, many, more gatherings.

Please help us add to the list of wonderful memories made within the walls of our home. If walls could only talk.

Remodeled Fall 2013-Spring 2014

What makes this house unique

We are located within city limits and yet you feel like you are the only ones for miles around. Within a mile you have local restaurants, beaches, ski hill, hiking and four wheeling access to Bear basin.

Come join us in McCall for your next gathering.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to send you a message to thank you and your family for renting this house! It was a perfectly fantastic setting for our first family reunion. We all agreed we set a pretty high bar for future reunions! We rented a boat and did a complete day at the lake & we hiked & picked huckleberries another day. So much fun! We hope to rent again soon! - All the best

The house was nice and location was good

  • 4 of 5

The house needs some maintenance the fridge was not working the dishwasher needed repair a couple of the beds were falling apart and some of the mattress'a need to be replaced. The house has a lot of spiders

Would not take a lot to make this a very nice rental

Parking was very tight for our trailers.

well kept, lots of room, beautiful setting, close to lake/marina area.

  • 5 of 5

We had approximately 32 people for a family reunion ages 1 to 83. Wonderful community areas inside and out with a spacious kitchen for cooking. For a house that holds that many people, the small appliances were lacking. Only one pancake grille, one small coffee maker, no coffee grinder, 2 hot pads, 5 -6 kitchen towels, etc. The mixing and serving dishes as well as silverware, glassware were very nice however! The sleeping arrangements were somewhat unusual as there were several queen sized bunks in 2 rooms. Nice spacious laundry/storage room. We needed to contact the owner for 2 small items and they were quick to respond. Two things we didn't care for was the late check in time of 5pm, especially when people are flying in to Boise and the fact that we had to vacuum even though we paid a cleaning deposit.

Overall we had a very nice stay and would recommend this to anyone with a large group providing they don't mind sleeping in the same rooms.

Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

My family loved the little play structure, piano and back deck. Lots of room to eat inside. Use the fans as there is no AC. We had plenty of towels. Would go back.

Ladies Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful home. We had a group of 24 women and the house was more than enough to accommodate us without feeling crowded. It is beautifully decorated and close to town. We found the kitchen well stocked with all we needed to cook large meals. Communication with the property manager was answered promptly and pleasantly.
