About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Enjoy a peaceful getaway in this Horseshoe Bend vacation rental. This riverfront property is dog-friendly (though a nightly fee per dog and minimum fee per stay will apply) and can sleep up to six people in tasteful comfort.

Located just six minutes from Horseshoe Bend proper and 45 minutes from Boise, this little town is quiet and restful - a great place for a multigenerational family or a group of friends to gather.

Gather in the backyard right on the shores of the Payette River - throw sticks for the dog or roast s'mores over the backyard fire pit. You can also cozy up in the living room with WiFi, or to chat over snacks and beverages.

In the full kitchen, you'll prepare delicious, homey meals in the comfort of this well-stocked space. And when you're done? Just pile the dirty plates in the dishwasher for easy cleaning.

Sleep soundly in three cozy bedrooms, each with queen beds. Two full bathrooms ensure everyone gets mirror time before you head out for the day, or turn in for the night.

Since this home also has a washer and dryer, you can easily keep everyone in clean clothes during your stay!

Whether you spend all your time on the back porch with the dogs and the kids, take a scenic train ride on the Thunder Mountain Line, or head to Boise for shopping and dining in the updated downtown, you're sure to find serenity in this cozy Idaho vacation rental!

About Vacasa, ID - Boise / Garden Valley Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Cute House in a Quiet Area

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here during the weekend for a rally race. It's location was perfect as we were close to town, yet far away from the highway that we could just sit there and relax in silence. The house was clean and had all the amenities you would find in a nice hotel room.a very nice view of the river. We hope that we can stay there for our trip next year.

Horseshoe Bend Vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a tranquil place to spend 7 days! We had a few bbq's, we ate down at the fire pit, we hung around and watched river flow by for hours. If you're into simply relaxing and not worried about too much shopping and nightlife, then this is a really great place!

This property is clean, quite and beautiful. It is simple and as advertised. The local area has a lot to offer and is not too far from Boise. Would absolutely stay here again.

November in Horseshoe Bend

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice and comfortable home in a beautiful setting.

It is so peaceful seeing the river flow by out your back yard :)

Our dogs loved to play in the yard and dip their toes in the river!

Thank you for the use of your home.

Lovely location but facilities not as described

  • 1 of 5

This was a lovely house it's grubby and run down.. greasy gunk around the kitchen sink, filthy overflow hole in bathroom basin, kitchen door fly screen hanging off hinges, large holes in lounge door fly screen.

It's partially saved by its location which is all other reviewers have described.

But the main issue we had was with the description about the TV and wifi.... There is a large flat screen TV but the owner has removed the connnection to the satellite dish so it only functions as the screen for the DVD player.

The Vacasa site says: "Stream entertainment favorites via WiFi on your personal device," what they mean is you have to use your own phone/tablet/laptop to watch anything via Wifi... there is no means to connect your devices to the TV screen.

We asked Customer Service to contact the owner to arrange to connect the TV as described, eventually the refusal made its way back to us with an offer of a 10% discount on our next Vacasa rental.

This was our third Vacasa experience... each rental has fallen short of its description and we will not be using the company again.

Amazing location!!!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures really do not do this property justice. The house is nice and well maintained, but the grounds are simply amazing!!! Right on the river with lots of yard space and a lawn that goes right down to the river. It feels very private and is towards the end of a private dead end road with little to no traffic.
