About the Property
1,700 Sq Ft, 2 Bedroom, 1 Bath, 3 Story Cabin
The house is very open being the only rooms in the house to have a door are the bathroom and the wood/storage room.
The first floor contains the Kitchen/dinning area that is equipped with a double sink, electric oven/stove, toaster oven, blender, juicer, fridge/freezer, a rock top island/bar and a large dinning table (seats 9) and benches. Sitting areas on the first floor include the sun/solar room with many windows and a futon , long coffee table and few chairs. The other seating area is where the TV and wood stove are located.
At the top of the first set of stairs you will find the bathroom (with an old cast iron tub and a funky shower rigged up that works well enough but should be bigger. There is a book case with some health books, lots of kids books, some hippy books and crayons. There is a futon and an old drafting table with some stools to have deep conversations around or color some pictures. There is a dresser and another bookcase with a growing selection of books before you enter the laundry area. In the bedroom you will find a full size bed and desk with a great lake view out the windows lining the room.
Up the narrow stair case to the third floor is the more private bedroom with a queen and single bed and once again a lake view! Above that is a secret tower which must remain locked...
On the maps it may look like the house is a block from the lake but that is meant to represent the size of the property,. The front lawn ends at the beach area. In the summer months you can enter the property from either Gooseneck Ct. or Scott Ln. whereas mentioned before, there is a round drive connecting those two roads.

Must be watched at the water, we are right on the lake. There is only the gradual recline of the lawn to the beach which makes it easy for toddlers to traverse. Also there are banisters between the floors, a very open hand rail going to the second floor that is not fully finished and matches for the sauna and wood fires. This is not a good match for an unruly or unsupervised child....moreless

About the owner: My name is Rhea and I am the daughter of the incredible man that built this cabin. I live in a hut not far away.
Why the Owner Chose Donnelly, ID, USA:
Jon: 'It's a hand me down property. My grandfather got it from the government, probably stoled from the Indians. The cove is more protected from the wind than the lake proper and it seemed like a good place to build a cabin, grow a garden and keep a goat.'
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The old logs, the bones of the structure seem to strike people singularly. The candlelit sauna in the hillside can be a bit of a catch for some, especially in the chilly evening. A campfire out the front door is a tradition here, like an ancestral home. The privacy offered by the trees and island creates a lot of serenity on what can be a busy lakefront. It is not to close to town and not to far... Oh yea, we have vegan cook books!
