About Fred Manthey

My wife and I grew up in the Midwest, but we first met here in the friendly town of Mullan, Idaho. I worked on a nearby mountain top, for the Federal Aviation Agency. We liked the life style here, built our own home, and raised 3 amazing girls! When I retired, we stayed here because everyone in this friendly town seems to knows us, and we have many close friends. The scenery here is beautiful, life is good, and people tend to live longer in this friendly town. We have lived in this small town a long time, but we might surprise you.... Our family has been in all 50 States, all of the Provinces in Canada, and we have visited over 40 Countries. We know a little about traveling, because we have done more than a little traveling!

We have traveled a lot, visiting all 50 states, all of the provinces in Canada, and a good part of Europe and Asia. We usually stayed at B & B's, and vacation rentals, and made note of the features that we liked the most. This cottage is conveniently located next to our house. When it came up for sale, we took the opportunity to buy and remodel it into the house that we would have loved to stay in during our many travels. We hope that you will enjoy your stay here, and look forward to meeting you!

Fred Manthey purchased this house in 2012

What makes this house unique

What a perfect place to meet up with our friends.

  • 5 of 5

Three couples from Montana and Idaho, we all loved our stay and plan to come back soon. Everything was comfortable and very clean and well laid out, with everything we would ever need. The kitchen and dining room was large enough for the six of us, and the living room was soft and a fun place to relax and hang out. Fred is a great host and helped us with our 4x4 ride plans and plenty of parking for four trucks with trailers.

Owner's Response: We want you to enjoy staying here at Idaho Mountain View Cottage. It was a pleasure to visit with you while we talked about the fun you had 4 wheeling the many off road trails in the Silver Valley! This area has it all. Hiking, biking, 4 wheeling, fishing, hunting, and skiing! We look forward to seeing you again soon! In November Lookout Pass Ski Area is scheduled to open, and we are offering up to 4 free ski passes to our renters!

A delightful cottage!

  • 4 of 5

This was a very comfortable 3-bdrm cottage in Mullan. The owner was attentive to our needs. There are several steep stairs to the front door and the same to the basement bedroom as well. Overall, a well-equipped, comfy bed, charming place to stay in Mullan.

Lovely Small Town Cottage Feel

  • 4 of 5

Lovely home that was close to everything we needed in Mullan. Clean and well maintained with ample space for our comfort. While we stayed here in the summer, I think it would be a great winter ski retreat.

great place

  • 5 of 5

wonderful spot with lots of room for 4. Very comfy beds and the Jacuzzi tub in the basement was a bonus.

Were actually able to sleep in in the basement since it was so nice and dark and cool.

Great value and friendly neighborhood.

Great amenities

  • 4 of 5

Clean and wonderful home. Accommodated our family of 6 adults and 3 children. Friendly owners. The purpose of our trip was to bike the Hiawatha - of which the trailhead is only 6.4 miles away. The nearest grocery store is 7 miles away, so make sure to plan for that. Also the wi-fi is slooooow, but that didn't really bother us. We'll likely come back this winter to cross-country or downhill ski at Lookout Pass. Quite enjoyable all the way around.
