Rustic-inspired forest cabin w/vintage decor near Downtown McCall!
You'll be happy to catch cabin fever in this cozy, single level McCall vacation rental, which is accessible for vacationers of all ages and just the right size for a small family getaway or an intimate couples retreat.
This two-bedroom cabin is only a short drive from downtown McCall, but with the multiple well-groomed hiking and Nordic skiing trails and the glimmering Payette Lake beckoning from Ponderosa Park in the backyard, it may be hard to find a reason to venture too far from home. However, if lakeside beach lounging sounds like more of a vacation to you, Davis Beach is only a mile away.
An open floor plan aglow with natural light and BBQ-ready porch ensure that this property remains airy in the summer, while the gas fireplace keeps the modest space snug during winter months, making for a delightful year-round getaway. With pine-paneled walls, window frames, and cabinets, and old-fashioned skis comprising much of this home's decor, Strawberry Log Cabin's vibe is rustic, allowing you to feel as if you're retiring to woodsy solitude without compromising any necessary modern amenities.
Enter through the front door into the fully stocked kitchen, equipped with a spacious fridge, stove, oven, the essential cookware, and plenty of counter and floor space to make preparing dinner for (or with) the family an easy and enjoyable affair. The dishwasher ensures a quick cleanup and more time spent with companions around the simple and sturdy dinner table just off of the kitchen, complete with two polished pine benches for ample seating space.
Adjoining the kitchen and dining area is the cabin's charming living room, with a plush sofa and loveseat inviting visitors to nestle up to their pillowed arms with a blanket and settle in for a relaxing night by the glow of the gas fireplace during chilly months.
This space is complete with a TV, cable, a DVD player, and an accompanying DVD library for movie nights, rainy days, or to pass time between adventures in scenic McCall. Listen to your favorite tunes on the stereo and sound dock while you unwind on the couch after a day in the sun or sun. And though the knotty wood-paneled walls and stately stone fireplace of the living room may fool you into thinking you're totally off the grid, the Strawberry Log Cabin is equipped with WiFi for those who can't afford to completely unplug from everyday life.
Accessible through a sliding glass door off of the shared living and dining room space awaits a summer vacation getaway staple. The cabin's wooden porch, while modest, is complete with a table, umbrella, and chairs for outdoor dining, soaking in late afternoon sun, or enjoying a summery cocktail with a loved one. As the evening transitions to night, it's the perfect place to unwind and savor the striking splendor of the summer stars before retiring to bed.
Because this cabin is only one floor, all bedrooms and bathrooms are on the same level, making it extremely accessible to older visitors or families with young children. Aside from maximizing sleeping space for up to seven guests in two bedrooms, this home also has two full baths, thereby minimizing time spent waiting around to shower or use the bathroom.
Just down the hallway off of the living room is the first bedroom with two full beds and one twin bed attached to a bunk, making it an ideal setup for kids to hunker down in at night. Situated next to the first bedroom is one of the two full bathrooms, equipped with a tub and standing shower.
At the end of the hall, the master bedroom and queen-size bed waits to offer its comforts to tired guests, sore from a full day of exploring snowy trails on Nordic skis or sun-kissed and sleepy from hours of swimming the shores of Payette Lake. This bedroom also has a lounging couch and the second of the two full bathrooms. The hallway also houses a closet where the washer and dryer are located.
With Ponderosa State Park just off the porch in the backyard and Davis Beach along the lovely Payette Lake so nearby, there are a myriad of outdoor activities to occupy your vacation agenda. In the winter, downhill skiing enthusiasts can hit the slopes of Brundage Mountain, just 12 miles away, and in the summer, golfers can hit the greens at McCall Golf Club, about a mile away. Downtown McCall, about two miles from Strawberry Log Cabin, is buzzing with activity year-round, and a perusal through its selection of brewpubs, cafés, and family-friendly eateries is a requirement for anyone visiting there.
Whether you're looking to enjoy the natural beauty of Ponderosa State Park in the summer or pining for a chance to stretch your legs on a pair of Nordic skis when the snow falls on McCall in the winter, this rustic McCall vacation rental is sure to suit your getaway needs!
The cabin was very clean and comfortable. We would definitely recommend to others. The only suggestion I would make concerns the six remote controls by the tv. It would have been nice to have some instructions which remotes controlled which device.
Very quiet, simple and cozy. Has everything a small family or couple needs to escape and decompress. Well decorated with beautiful window views. Extraordinarly well insulated and heated! We had to actually open windows even in the winter.
A few cons for improvement:
- a few dishes were cracked and broke.
- The master bed is comfy, but sits way too high
- There are 7 remotes to the TV and we could never get any volume to work
- Pictures made it seem more secluded than it really is. There are actually 2 other cabin neighbors directly behind you. Thought it backed directly up to the park, but it doesn’t. They were clever in the advertising pics to hide this.
These aren’t major complaints, but just a few critiques to be aware of or maybe improve on. Strawberry Cabin, overall, is a quality and beautiful stay. Especially for the price range. It is secluded enough, but still close to downtown for a good balance of activity. We got to see some Elk wonder through the back yard which the wife loved! If momma is happy, then the cabin served it’s purpose!
Perfect little cabin in great location. We had an excellent Thanksgiving Weekend here!
This was a very well equipped and clean cabin. Just perfect for a nice getaway.
It was very clean place and pets free, which is very important for me and my family, we loved it, definitely recommended to others.
We had a great stay in McCall!
Four of us on a boys golf outing - this property fit the bill perfectly. Everything we needed was there.
This property is in a great location for the Mccall area. It is also a very clean property. It also has bicycles which was a plus.
A few of the things that need attention .
We could not get the ceiling fan to work.
The bicycles needed air in the tires and some minor adjustments.
The outdoor umbrella is going to need replacing soon.
Overall this was a great time in McCall.
We are glad to see these guests enjoyed their trip! The ceiling fan is scheduled for repair, and there is an air pump provided for the bike tires. Thank you!
this is a very bright, clean and cozy cabin located in a quiet neighborhood near ponderosa park and a short drive to downtown. well equipped spacious kitchen, warm and comfortable living room, and a large master bedroom with a private bath and great bed. i really enjoyed my stay in this cabin!
Loved the cabin. We had a great time. Everything in the cabin is clean and tidy. The only thing it's missing is a fire pit. That would make it complete. Very nice cabin though.
This place was fantastic! Absolutely everything you would need for a comfortable stay is available in this cabin and we were so thankful! The location was great as well! Thank you so much and we look forward to returning very soon!
the cabin was clean and nice and very quiet. We just had a great time.
This was a great house for our family of 3! It was cozy and warm, clean and stocked with plenty of utensils for cooking up meals. And there was plenty of room to park a 4 place enclosed trailer!
This condo is a perfect size for 5-6 people. It’s clean and cozy. We cooked several meals here and everything we needed for meal prep was provided. Would definitely recommend this place to others.
Convenient, clean, well-appointed, and so quiet! We loved it!
We stayed here for a couple nights to get out of town and play in the snow. It was perfect for the 5 of us. Would definitely stay at this home again.

Many good features served our needs as we visited family in the area. We have been to McCall many times and this was a neighborhood we were unfamiliar with but liked very much. Quiet. Friendly. The bikes available were an added treat to ride in the park. We would recommend this home and location for others. It was a beautiful fall week.
The cabin was beautiful. It was very accommodating, and it was nice that it was fully equipped with the essentials. Made making the trip much easier and relaxing. Would definitely like to come back in the future.
It's a good cabin for a family get away.
This home is in the perfect location. So close to Ponderosa State Park that I could just walk there and leave my car at the home. The street is very quiet and safe to bike or run on. I will be staying here again for my next McCall visit!
Nice quiet location, close to town. Beautiful surroundings. Comfortable for a family of 4, 2 adults and 2 teens
Close to town, fun environment! Close proximity neighbors which is not as secluded as a cabin feels
This cabin is my favorite cabin I have rented in the McCall area. The cabin and surrounding areas were beautiful!
Four of us rented this property for a snowmobile vacation. One of the nicest places I've rented in Mcall. It was well furnished and had plenty of parking and very close to town. I will definitely rent the strawberry Log Cabin Retreat again!
We stayed with our 3 nearly grown children for a long weekend. We came in well after dark and had an adventure finding the house, but we very happy with our stay once we made it. Clean, just as advertised, and well stocked. We'd be happy to stay again if we get the chance.
It was a well located and clean house. We appreciated our stay here very much. We hope to stay here again. The house slept a lot of people. Thank you for the kind hospitality and clean home. However, if you're pulling a large boat, don't plan to park in the driveway. It's too tight for large snowmobile trailers or large boats as it's a circular driveway with trees on all sides.
This is the second time we have stayed at this location.
What we loved: Pretty view (would be even better in the summer when you can use the deck without 2 feet of snow!), great interior, well furnished, huge dining room table for fun and food and games.
The other side of the coin: DVD is only in the master bedroom and not in the living room. Second bedroom is 'cozy' with a double bed and a double/twin bunk bed in it. We are a close family and didn't have any issues as we used the closet for all the suitcases and bags but there isn't a ton of room to move around. (Pro is that more people can stay at the house with this configuration. Master bedroom is also huge with lots of extra space!)
It is our second stay at this location so obviously the amenities of this location far out weigh the few cons listed above.
Enjoy your stay (just don't steal our February weekend from us!!!!!)
This is a nice cabin with a cozy fireplace.
This is a charming home/cabin and was a perfect get-a-way for our two night stay. It was very clean, cozy, and comfortable.
Awesome winter experience highly recommended for future stay
We spend a delightful week in McCall at this cabin/home in a quiet beautiful neighborhood close to Ponderosa State Park and Payette Lake. We enjoyed the views out the many windows of pine trees, distant mountains, and many deer coming through the yard. It's a very clean, cozy, and comfortable place for 2-4 people. The kitchen has lots of counter space, with everything you need. It's a short drive to town, and the peace and quiet is worth it. We would love to come back again sometime.
Great house, Very clean with all basic/expected amenities. We enjoyed our 9 day stay.
We had an excellent stay at the Strawberry Lane cabin! We loved the location -- close enough to town and amenities, but far enough off the road to feel very private and secluded. Close to bike paths and Ponderosa State Park. Regular visits from deer & fox.
The cabin was very well built, nicely decorated, and had everything we needed to enjoy our 9 day stay.
We went into McCall and ate at the famous 'Pancake House,' which may have been the best breakfast I've ever had.
Very nice place to stay. Clean, nice location, bed was comfortable, quiet location.
Our family of 5 was unexpectedly going to be staying in the McCall area for a few nights and needed to find a place fast! (as it was already 9pm with three kids 3, 6, & 7) The owners responded right away! I literally booked the home during dinner in McCall. When we got there we were pleasantly surprised with not only the accommodations and amenities, but also the cleanness! We loved our stay there! May consider buying our own rental in the area as it was such a great experience! But if not, we would definitely stay here again! (and again)
I loved the location. The size for my needs was great. The decor was nice, Loved the use of the bikes. Loved the piece and quite. I would stay there again.
We had a really great time here. The home was very comfortable and suitable and a great location. We were happy to either stay in the house or go exploring the outdoors or downtown McCall. Whether we wanted to drive or ride our bicycles we could go to either downtown or Pondarosa Park easily(family of 5, kids ages 11, 8 and 6) Walking is doable too, but bicycles were the best. McCall and Ponderosa Park are a great destination for family
This place was perfect for our family vacation. We love McCall area and highly recommend staying in this home.
We had a great time here.
This is our second stay at this cabin. We love the location near Ponderosa State Park. There is a game trail right next the property which nightly brought a nice sized buck into the back yard and a fox from time to time.
Our kids think this is our cabin, when the owner is ready to sell we would like right of first refusal. :)
Property was very convenient for my family. One bedroom was overly crowded, for more than 2 persons. We spent little time at the cabin as most of our family was at the park for a reunion.
Strawberry Cabin is a great vacation getaway. Very close to downtown McCall, Ponderosa State Park, and Davis Beach. The cabin was very clean and well stocked. Highly recommended.
10 minutes to town on bike, bear state park. very quiet
My wife and I stayed at this unit for out honeymoon. She loved it I loved it. The decor was cool inspired my wife for our new home. Loved how close it was to main city yet distant enough to have some peace and quiet. Great place to relax and chill very comfortable and peaceful will be booking with this cabin again.
We had rented another place, but due to building code issues, this was offered as an alternative. This is a super clean and comfortable home. We were very happy to stay here and would come back again!!
Amazing weekend with the girls!
The Strawberry Cabin was a great place to get away and enjoy McCall. The neighborhood was quiet, safe, and friendly. Easy bike riding distance into town for dinner and drinks, and a stones throw from Ponderosa State Park and the golf course. The cabin was clean and well maintained. Lots of wildlife frequenting the surrounding area to add to the charm. We will recommend this place to friends and plan to come back again.
Its a very nice place the bed sucks there was some cool wild life close like a deer and a fox
This is truly a gem of a home. Very clean and on a quiet street. We saw deer and a fox in the yard. It is well furnished and nicely decorated. We came in April, but even though it was still very chilly, the home was cozy and the fireplace was great. Not too far out of town to be a burden, yet not too close to hear any downtown business/traffic (though the town rolled up about 8pm each night so it wouldn't have been an issue anyways -it might be different in Summer or Winter festival). Great choice for a rental...we will come again!
I would reccomend this cabin to anyone wanting to enjoy the area. It is the perfect place to be if you get snowed in. Clean, beautifully decorated, TV, wifi, great separate living spaces to enjoy.
Great place to stay. Clean, good location. My family had a great spring break.
We enjoyed our week in McCall and this house was perfect for our family. It was a perfect size. The house was super clean and had all of the amenities needed. We would definitely stay here again! The house is conveniently located near town and the state park.
The house living area was much larger than we expected and was beautifully decorated.
The second bedroom is a tight space wit 5 sleeping in there but the closet was big enough to store all the luggage and we only spent time in there to sleep so the spaciousness of the rest of the house made up for the cramped sleeping quarters.
We would definitely stay there again with 7 people (4 adults, 1 teenager, 2 children)
Our first long weekend spent in McCall with just two of us and it was perfect! So quiet surrounded by the trees and falling snow! Such a cozy home with everything we needed! Hope it will be an annual trip for us!
We had a wonderful time in our cozy little home that was perfect for our family of four, including two small boys. We loved being close to town yet we had the feel like we were staying in the woods. We saw deer everywhere roaming throughout the neighborhood and we heard the trees rustling at night with wind We will definitely be back.
Very nice place to stay! Was nicely decorated too! would definitely stay again :)
This was a nice quiet place. It was great for our family. We would definitely rent it again
I rented this cabin with 6 others for a girls weekend. It was fabulous! The cabin was very clean, well supplied, and modern with neat mountain cabin decor. There is a nice back deck and bicycles to use around town. I would definitely recommend this place to others.
Nice cabin, great location.
