Property description

In a word — relaxing. In essence — modern rustic elegance.

Perfect for couples or a family who wants to get away from the hustle and bustle any time of the year.

The Back Cabin is a quiet refuge and far enough away from town to feel like you are secluded, yet close enough to enjoy all the seasonal activities around McCall, Idaho. This fully remodeled three bedroom, two bathroom cabin sleeps two couples easily, or a family group of up to nine. It is located on the west side of Payette Lake in Wagon Wheel Bay, just off Warren Wagon Road.

You can take a stroll on the quiet lane to reach beach access on Payette Lake and launch the cabin’s red canoe for some adventure. Or enjoy a hike right outside the door on walking paths around the property and listen to the creek just beyond the large entertaining deck. You can even climb up into a timeless tree house for some fun.

The open floor plan creates a gathering space to share time in the kitchen, dining area and living room. This warm and welcoming great room has large windows that look out onto the deck. Curl up on the couch with a book, listen to music, or watch movies on the large flat screen TV. When you’re coming in from the wild, the mudroom provides a place to stash extra gear and slip on your comfy shoes.

The fully-equipped contemporary kitchen has new appliances, including an induction stovetop, convection oven, microwave and a French-door refrigerator. You’ll find a great assortment of gadgets, cookware and bakeware to make your time in the kitchen enjoyable and convenient for creating family meals. The breakfast bar seats three and the rustic kitchen table has seating for six.

The main level has a full bathroom that connects to an office that also doubles as a bedroom with a queen-size deep mattress murphy bed and French doors to the deck. This quiet office is equipped with a large computer screen and keyboard for laptop hookups, a color printer, scanner and copy machine, There is high speed wireless internet throughout the house and deck.

The spiral staircase leads you upstairs to a landing area adjoined by a full bath and master bedroom with a king bed. The upstairs bunk room accommodates sleeping for five; three twin platform beds are designed with privacy curtains in each nook, reading lamps, and cellphone charging shelves. And, two additional twin trundle beds accommodate two more guests. There is plenty of comfy bedding for all seasons.

Enjoy the amenities this cabin offers: peaceful privacy, large open living spaces, modern conveniences, close access to town, downhill & cross country skiing, as well as snowmobile access points, a canoe and lake access to launch the canoe, walking paths around the property, full office setup, flat screen internet TV, washer and dryer, and a convenient pellet stove for an extra blast of heat when you most need it.
