1940’s charm with a rustic appeal and modern touches will welcome you as you arrive at our quaint cabin on the lake in McCall. Travel back to a simpler time. Relax on the deck overlooking the lake or step down to the dock and slip your feet into the water. This magical little spot in the world will envelope you with a sense of connection, the comfort of quiet relaxation, and the warmth of real respite and rest.
A true summer cabin, this log home lets you experience summers as they once were – unbridled, unhurried, and in our mind, under appreciated. And yet, you’ll find everything you want within reach of this cottage oasis. The lake in front of you, the trails behind you and the mountains surrounding you. Walk to town, ski the lake, bike down Brundage Mountan (after riding the chairlift up), hike to a secret fishing spot, or just relax and rejuvenate. Revisit the era of summer neighbors, quiet lakeside evenings, and cocktail cruises along the shore.
Wood floors, log walls, a river-rock fireplace and even a tongue-and-groove ceiling complete the look of summer at the lake. A rustic and simple kitchen harkens back to another era, but you’ll find modern cookware and dinnerware to facilitate the gourmet in your group.
Ours is a simple home, for simple pleasures. We hope you’ll find it clean and comfortable, but what you won’t find is anything fancy. Enjoy the gas bar-b-cue and eat outside on the deck if you’d like. Merry-making under the stars while listening the sounds of a summer enclave are a soothing way to end any day. Dip your toes in the water – or better yet, jump in and let the cool mountain water take your breath away and infuse your soul at the same time. Leave the pressures of work and the stresses of daily life behind. Seek a friendly community of nature and generations of neighbors who will welcome you to our little group of cabins and homes. Meet new friends on our community dock and watch the sun break over the mountains’ crest each day. Soak in its heat and feel your energy reserves renewed – this is a special place to rest one’s feet!
Beds for 6 (a queen in the main-level bedroom and four twins in the bunk-loft) and shower for 6 (sorry, only room for one at a time though!) along with some napping couches and some lounge chairs will give plenty of options for sweet dreams. If you’re searching for more action – the lake is right out your door – jump in!
A final note: rustic means rustic in our little house. You’ll find charm and character, but not opulent luxury – unless of course, you consider a peaceful and simple experience a luxury.

Too cold for the Red Cabin
We got to the cabin on a weekend that was predicted to be in the 40's in the day and in the 20's at night. The cabin looked fine but after much searching, we found that there was no central heating. There was a big fireplace with wood but the notebook about the cabin told us not to expect much warmth from that source. We located one space heater on the first floor. We would have had to carry it around with us from kitchen to bathroom to living room in order to stay warm. We don't mind roughing it. We tent camp in that kind of weather. However there was nothing in the advertising about the cabin that said that there was no central heat. We would have prepared differently if we had known that kind-of-big detail. Luckily, after three tries, we were able to get through to the folks managing the property and they moved us to a neighboring cabin with no questions asked. We had a nice weekend at that cabin and appreciated the responsiveness of the management staff. I do suggest however that the listing should be much clearer about the heating situation.
I marked it not really. Cabin nice needed work
No stopper in sink to do dishes,mostly broken chairs outside, no porch light, uneven boards and nails sticking up on porch, not many coffee mugs, needed more lights and or light bulbs, no information on area:hiking,dining,hot springs,and shopping. The cabin is as advertised a little red cabin with a partial view and we like the cabin itself.
Rustic, charming and a wonderful location!
We enjoyed our long weekend at the Rustic Red cabin. We especially enjoyed the dock/lake access and the friendly neighbors. We will definitely come back.
We had a wonderful trip! The house is old and dark,, but with character.
I would suggest more light bulbs and upgrade the deck and deck furniture .Bring your own kitchen basics, like salt and pepper, sugar and spices. We had a great time and love the boat dock.
Clean but cramped and technologically out of date
Because there was not central air it was hot when going to bed and cold in the morning.
Most frustrating was the super old TV that wouldn't connec to the cable and the broken VCR that wouldn't play the broken videos (all five of them) because the rewind didn't work.
If you love funky, this is your place!
My husband and I had a great time at Rustic Red. When you hear the word cabin, this place should come to mind. Like the cabins of my childhood, rustic and funky, which was part of the fun of it all. The house is set back from the water with a cabin in front of it, but the view is still pretty good. There is a private dock with a boat slip. We had our two dogs with us (another bonus -pet friendly) and they loved being right on the water. The only hiccup was that the toaster and wifi were not working, but I called the property manager and those things were readily fixed.
Just be aware the kitchen is super tiny, but worked for the two of us.
Even though it's old, the place was clean.
