As you cross the redwood deck of this Rustic Ranch Style Cabin, you're vacation will begin! Jug mountain and beautiful natural surroundings, and the fresh mountain air will catch your attention!

This inviting 3000 sf mountain home is the PERFECT RETREAT! This cabin rests in a grassy 5 acre meadow and is perfect for a family or group and cozy enough for an intimate getaway!

Enjoy almost every recreation sport you can think of nearby! To name a few; water skiing, boating, rafting, swimming, fishing, hiking trails, snow skiing, snowmobiling, and much more!

The substantial Gourmet Kitchen is supplied with two dishwashers, a large granite island, and rustic cherry cabinetry filled with dishes, pots and pans and every kitchen gadget and tool needed to make delicious gourmet meals. We take pleasure in the warm textures of the custom woodwork and craftsmanship of our cabin, including hand hewn fir posts, beams, stairs, railings, and distressed pine plank floors. We built this cabin for our growing family.

We are certain you'll love our property! Take it easy and enjoy the outdoors! Relax on the covered wrap around porch or soak in the hot tub while taking in the mountain views and fresh air that surrounds you!

Summertime BBQ's or picnics outdoors are sure to be fun! Enjoy the rustic outdoor setting. Enjoy a campfire in our fire pit. Play volleyball, horseshoes, croquet, or kick a soccer ball on the lawn.

About Jennifer

We have lived in the McCall area since 2004. We built several homes around the lake and in the McCall area including this cabin. Our children have been raised here and we all consider McCall our home. Now grown, with children of their own, our family loves to frequently visit and take advantage of the fresh outdoor activities offered here, and especially at our family cabin. As grandparents, we enjoy playing with the kids and grandchildren! It's just plain fun to go outside and throw a ball in the yard, swing on our timber swing, or roast marshmallows and sing songs around the campfire together. Our family cabin is where the fun begins!

Jennifer purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Jennifer chose McCall

We fell in love with McCall many years ago the first time we drove into this quaint friendly town, came over the hill and saw the lake! When it comes to recreation, there are plenty of options in this beautiful mountain area-whatever the season! To us, this area provides a peaceful feeling. That's just what we were looking for!

What makes this cabin unique

Our cabin provides an open country setting with gorgeous views of Jug Handle Mountain and other surrounding mountain views. We have distant neighboring properties since our property is 5+ acres. We know you'll love the area!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful stay! Very beautiful surroundings! Cabin was very clean and comfortable! Hope to stay in the cabin again! Thank you!

Incredible McCall Winter Wonderland

  • 5 of 5

This house was incredible. Not only was it a work of art with the craftsmanship, it was incredibly comfortable and welcoming. Jennifer was great accommodating a travel issue we had, pancake mix and huckleberry syrup was even waiting for us when we arrived. We so appreciated our time at the house and will be returning to see it nice and green in the summer!

Fantastic Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This home was everything we could've expected and more! Extremely clean, very warm, and cozy. The kitchen is well stocked with many appliances available for use, which made cooking much easier. Just a short drive to town, but far enough out of the way to be peaceful and quiet. The owner was very pleasant and assisted us promptly with any questions we had. Excellent place to stay.

Nice home with an amazing 360 view

  • 4 of 5

House was nice with great interior rustic features. The only negative is there is not a lot of storage space and the garage is not available for use.

Great family gathering place!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the well supplied kitchen! Kids had a great time with the swing and lawn toys and were so pleased to have their very own kids table! We especially enjoyed the great views of the mountains and at night, the stars! Made some amazing memories!
