Beautiful home gorgeous views, all memory foam beds, fully stocked kitchen. Fantastic little restaurants in town with friendly people. We will be back!
This is a fantastic home with amenities that exceed many other rental properties. I have titled this "ice fishing" because my concerns do not effect other intended uses of the property.
Finding the home.
We spent 3 hours searching for the home while pulling an enclosed snowmobile trailer. From the highway, crown point parkway is closed. This is what the rental directions told us to use. We took the next available turn left entering the ranches. The roads are poorly plowed and the ice is rough. We had to emmedialy chain up all 4 tires. We used Google maps and my Chevy maps to recalculate to the property. Every connecting road was plowed for a single vehicle travel and came to a dead end. We spent hours backing up the trailer on single lane roads with 4 foot snow banks on each side. Every road was closed and/or not plowed.. After 3 hours, we found home with lights on and a vehicle in the drive. I was greeted by very nice people who informed me that there are 2 "subdivisions" that no longer connect due to gated community privacy issues and that I needed to go back to cascade and enter from Vista Point Blvd. Even driving on Vista Point the GPS kept telling us to turn around and go back to Crown Point. 10 mins down this road the GPS recalculated and took us directly to the property. The roads in this subdivision are much better but still require chains or snow tires as they are sheets of ice.
Access to the lake.
To get to the lake by snowmobile "legally" you have to trailer all the way into town and go to the boat ramp. This means trailering the snowmobiles 25 plus mins chained up, unchaining at the highway and driving through town to the boat ramp and un loading. The maps show roads connecting near the home but the separation of subdivisions don't make this possible. This home is as far from town and lake Access as you can get making it worst choice for quick access. There is another gated "private" subdivision near the home that has direct access and it only takes 5 mins on snowmobile. We were stopped by a resident and was warned of the trespassing issue. Luckily he was friendly to our complications and allowed us to use his private dock access for the remaining 2 days.
The home states 3 vehicles or 2 vehicles and a trailer. This is true. What it doesn't state is that Sunflower drive is a side street and it isn't plowed as often as the other streets and is only single vehicle width. So taking a trailer to the home is a huge struggle and requires shoveling on switchbacks and multiple point turns. If you combine this with no direct lake access by snowmobile you have to deal with this twice a day. Very frustrating. We spent multiple hours each day dealing with lake access that you wouldn't have if you picked a property that clearly stated lake access.
The home is beautiful and reasonably priced. The super bowl was a blast to watch on the big screen. We were able to fit 3 vehicles and a trailer without parking on the road. We were the only ones to stay on sunflower so privacy was amazing. If lake access isn't part of your vacation, this is the property for you.
We loved every minute of it!! Beautiful and fun!
We loved the cabin. We loved the area. We will be back.
However. We did have issues with the free wifi that was suppose to be provided. We had the internet for the first night we were there. We tried to get it resolved but it never got fixed for the rest of our 5 day stay. I was taking a working vacation and ended up not working two of the 3 nights i was suppose to.
I am torn how many stars to give it. As if it wasn’t for the internet issue, we would have had a perfect fall break!
Hello, Emily! Thank you for your review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the home during your stay. We apologize for the intermittent connection issues you encountered with Wi-Fi in this home. We are happy to hear we were able to supply compensation for this inconvenience and have successfully had the connection repaired. We hope to host you again in the future!
Comfortable, relaxing and fits like a glove
What a retreat ! 5 kids & adults Distance Learning video conferencing all at the same time on the fast WiFi with no problem all week. On day 3, while I was on a conference call, 4 buck strolled 10 feet outside the window, nibbling on leaves for 15min.
We loved this quiet mountain get away! The host is amazing!
This was our third time renting this cabin, and as always, we had a great time. We really enjoyed and appreciated all the recent updates/upgrades to the cabin. We're already looking forward to renting it again!
The only thing that bothered me was the light switches being scattered amongst the house. My OCD was not okay with that, other than that it was perfect and I had a wonderful time.
Definitely have a 4x4 in the winter other then that it was great!
We truly enjoyed the amenities of this home. Our children had lots of space and play area. Only thing we wished we had was wood for the outside fire pit and in the description of the house it states two bedrooms but only one. Very well stocked and would return for sure!!!
Hi, Chelsie! Thank you for staying with us. We have changed the description to one bedroom as the second bedroom is a loft. We hope to see you again!
Great cabin with all the comforts of home. The views are amazing. The only issue we had was getting in and out due to the winter road conditions. We would definitely return.... but probably in the summer!
This house is PERFECT! Best cabin I've ever stayed in.
Great place to relax. Spectacular view. Post card picture perfect. Beautiful cabin inside and out. Our family had a wonderful time. We had a blue jay visit every morning and we watched a family of deer.
This home captured our hearts from the very first moment we saw it. The View was spectacular, the perfect number of beds and bathrooms, the pool table, the fireplace, the deck, the open kitchen, all the appliances and well-stocked kitchen, and the comfortable furniture was beyond our expectations! It's not our favorite thing to have to say the word "however" at this point....However, there were a few items that need to be noted. There are obviously mice in the house. We woke up everyday day to mice droppings on the kitchen counter, on the windowsills, and even teeny-tiny footprints in a bowl of bacon grease. Next, there is a concerning corner in the master bedroom on the outer northeast corner. It's white and it appears to be a type of mold coming down the entire corner. We did not observe it anywhere else in the house, though. As other reviews mentioned, there are multiple electrical outlets that don't work, which made for a game of "Figure out which outlet to plug your griddle into," but we eventually figured out which ones worked. There were also a couple of light switches that only worked occasionally. This caused us to be concerned about the wiring in some areas. We would so love to have given this home a 5 star rating, but it just wouldn't be fair if we did, because some of these things ended up being concerning enough to mention. All in all, we had a very lovely time, and would stay here again without question! We just hope that some of these issues could be addressed so that it would feel cleaner and safer overall!
The property manager is working on your concerns with her team so they will all be corrected. We hope to see you again!
Loved the area the amenities. The cabin was stoked with Everything you can think of needing. Location was gorgeous. Quiet and tranquil. Loved the options to sleep and bathe. Deck was overlooking the lake Log home appeal was real.
Nice and secluded. We loved our stay in this cabin. The cabin is welcoming and inviting. The furnishings are new and nice. Would love to stay here again sometime.
The cabin was clean and the furniture looked new. Great kitchen and good bathrooms. It is great for a large family or groups, The outside fire pit needs to be moved away from trees. The only thing negative I would say is the upstairs sleeping area. The beds need to have a wall between them for privacy. A curtain wall would work. Just something to give more privacy. Other than that, I would recommend for everyone.
In case no one has notified: shower drain upstairs is clogged...drains very slow, could overflow
Several outlets do not work
Still loved our stay
we are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We passed your remarks regarding the drains and outlets along to our local manager for inspection. We look forward to hosting you again!
Beautiful cabin with one of the best views of the lake.
Awesome lake view getaway place
This house was just as pictured. There was wildlife everywhere
and lucky for us the weather was outstanding. We would stay here again in the future...great view of the lake as well.
Very nice log cabin mountain home
You'd be hard-pressed to find a better view! We had such a great and memorable time; perfect for a quick weekend trip. The house was clean, the views breathtaking, and the environment was peaceful and relaxing. The only issue is the photos on the website show the lake shore and a dock/deck. Those photos are so misleading, as the water is nowhere near the cabin; in fact, access by foot is non-existent. I would recommend removing those photos or giving a description Also, if you want a TV you'd better bring your own batteries for the remotes (even though the tv remote is actually missing). With those few minor adjustments, this would be a 5-star review for sure! We will book again.
Will never go back to this place. No hot water.
Thank you for your valuable feedback. We are sorry for the inconvenience. The hot water heater was repaired and is working properly for future guests. We hope to host you again soon!
Loved the private, wilderness aspect .
My husband and I are expecting twins in the spring and we were looking for a get away from it all getaway. I fell in love with this cabin on Homeaway so we built a vacation around it. Friends and family thought we were crazy for wanting to vacation in Idaho but it was beautiful and as always, an adventure! We loved the seclusion of the cabin and the view was spectacular. We saw deer every morning as we were heading out for the day. The cabin was clean and spacious and pretty much had anything we needed. We loved being able to play pool in the evenings and sitting on the deck with coffee in the mornings while the sun came up.
The light switches were a little tricky to figure out even though most were labeled.
The TV remote was MIA. I didn't mind but my husband was hoping to catch some baseball or hockey while we were playing pool.
Overall, the cabin was perfect for our last adventure before we become parents! I recommend it to anyone who wants a couples or family getaway with a great view in a quiet location.
Great location. Beautiful house. Great view.
Everything was great except the TV did not work. No news, but didn’t miss it much because the view was spectacular.
Great place to stay.
It was very nice, private and peaceful. The home was clean and well stocked with the essentials. We would certainly stay here again. My only complaint is that the home boasted Dish Network as one of its amenities. We were disappointed to find that the channel package was so basic that it didn't include ESPN (which I didn't think was even possible.) That blew our plans for watching the game on Saturday!
Quiet setting, gorgeous lake & forest views
This home was perfect for my husband and my mini vacation one weekend. It’s well maintained and very clean inside and out. The kitchen has the basics for cooking, but if you have a large amount of people you may need additional pots for cooking in. Otherwise basics like plates, cups and silverware were ample. Beds are comfortable, plenty of blankets and pillows. This was a lovely home to spend the weekend and would be wonderful to bring the family to as well. Our only complaint was the wood burning stove that actually is propane powered. It is seasonal and that was disappointing but did not affect the comfort of our stay as it was not tremendously cold during our stay.
We needed a quiet break after a long hot summer. This place is secluded, quiet, and super comfortable. Perfect for relaxing! View is amazing. More shade for the patio would have allowed more time there... but we made it work.
In the middle of nowhere, but surrounded by RVs, tough they can't see you on the deck. This cabin is a true retreat from civilization, the very outdated infotainment and internet speed kind of fits the idea. A radio would have been a nice idea though. In general, this is exactly what you expect when you want to slow things down!
We love staying here and have multiple times. The only thing that I would suggest is to put in some wall or even window A/C units on the main floor and upstairs so it's not so hot during the summer for people who want to be on the main floor or sleep upstairs. Our kids couldn't ever fall asleep until 11 or so because they were too hot, even with the fans on. Other than the heat from 1-11 it was perfect. :)
Nice and quiet, beautiful cabin! Absolutely perfect other than having to drive a ways to get to the water.
Family and I loved the cabin...would rent it again
First of all the cabin was very clean as we walked in. We had a great time with the family and my kids enjoyed the stay. What a great place to stay. And the views were just amazing!
We enjoyed our stay, a couple of things - toaster doesn't toast well on left side, there was a strong propane smell outside not sure if coming from the neighbor across the street, no smell inside cabin, water heater runs out of hot water pretty quickly. Simple a lovely place to stay, we will come again thank you!
We will get these items addressed right away and appreciate the feedback!
Cabin was absolutely beautiful. The views from the deck were spectacular! We loved feeding Alvin & his chipmunk clan everyday. They would always be waiting for us. The pool table was a nice touch also. We loved the quiet serenity and the true log cabin atmosphere.
My crew stayed in your beautiful home and loved it so much! They said it was the nicest place they had ever stayed. Vacasa was terrific to work with as well due to a change in the work schedule. They were very accommodating and thoughtful.
A must. Nice view of the lake. Super peaceful. Great accommodation
The views from this cabin are amazing. Wonderful ambiance and amenities. A great place to share with friends and family!
Wish that we could have stayed the whole summer. It was a little hard to get up in a sedan but worth it all. The Chipmunks are super friendly if you sit on front steps they will come up to you so bring plenty of peanuts. They are fun to watch and feed. Even the view from the upstairs shower is beautiful. We hope to go back again next year
This is a beautiful vacation home not convenient to get to the lake but not too far to drive to the lake very quiet peaceful vacation spot
Great location and home. View was awesome. Very clean. Didn't use basement except to shower as there's no heat except space heater. Weather was great so didn't need to use it anyway. Firepit could be improved as not real inviting. Access to Cascade and McCall activities and trails very good. Peaceful and relaxing place.
The views were gorgeous, the lake below and snow capped mountains in the distance. The walk (all down-hill) to the lake was about 2 miles and we stumbled across an actual trail. Would love to see something in the home that identifies trails for those of us who want to explore without wandering aimlessly. Overall great stay.
The home is awesome but the view was the best thing of the whole weekend. I will be coming back for sure
This cabin is worth every cent we spent i would recommend it to any of my friends or family and plan to stay there again real soon
My fiance and I recently spent a weekend here, we absoulutely loved it!
The views were gorgeous, the cabin was fantastic. It was our first time trying out vacasa and we had a great experience. The instructions on how to get there were helpful, the Wifi was fantastic. There was some spices and soy sauce and things already there to use in the cupboards. The tub upstairs was fantastic, thought the shower was not as great. Overall a great experience there and we will definitely be back!
Good place to stay with a fun/quirky floorplan. No easy access to the lake from the nearby roads, but look for the rails-to-trails path and blaze your way down to the lake somewhere (as long as you're not trespassing).
Enjoyed our time there... It was nice to be close to the lake. A big plus was the wildlife, most specifically the red fox that came onto the back porch twice while we were there. It was also nicely close to town while still being "back in".
This home exceeded our expectations. The views are spectacular! The photos don't do it justice. My friends and I had a very memorable weekend. The home is close to Cascade State Park and HorseThief Reservoir too, for more adventures.
We had a blast we always do when we come here.
We stayed in the cabin, for our Son's wedding. An ironing board would have been helpful. I brought an iron, but not a board. I had to press several people's clothes. More hangers would be great, as well. I brought hangers, but needed, more.
This cabin was very nice. Tucked back in the trees with a nice scenic view of the lake. Some of the negative reviews we had read about the place prior to going there had been fixed by the time we got there.
This is a very nice cabin with plenty of room and appropriate decor. It was supplied with all we needed to live and cook for the 5 days we were there. We definitely plan on coming back!
Good for the most part other than the fact that there was no Hot water
Beautiful location and great cabin with all t h e comforts of home. Would do it again a heartbeat.
This was our second time visiting this cabin and we had a blast just like the first time. It has just about everything you need. The only things I would warn future guests about is that it gets very hot on the main and upper level during the day. There is no A/C. We had to retreat downstairs for a few hours every day where it was significantly cooler, but we still had to dine upstairs in the heat. The ceiling fans upstairs are too far to feel on the main level. There was a box fan, but it made little difference. Also, I would recommend the pool cues be replaced as the tips are completely blunt. I also couldn't find many pots/pans that had matching lids. It was just a collection of random sizes. Next time I'll bring my own cooking pot.
But other than those things, I still recommend visiting this cabin. We will be back as our young kids can't stop talking about it.
The cabin was beautiful, spacious, quite neighbors and easy to find. I will recommend it to any of my friend that want a place to stay in Cascade.
This is our 2nd year staying at this cabin for our yearly girls trip and we plan on returning, it was perfect and very comfortable and homey!
This is the perfect place for peace and quiet. We figured we'd return someday to write and read. The strong wifi connection—and the fact that it takes a while to get back to the main road—makes it a perfect place to get work done. The view is so pretty! It's not really a hiking starting-point, because a lot of the surrounding area is private property and twisting roads. The upstairs beds are all super soft; I didn't try the ones downstairs. All 4 of us thought this cabin was pretty marvelous, all in all.
My wife and I spent our 11th aniversery at the cabin and had a really good time. Quiet, and clean and amazing view! I would defintly stay there again.
Other than a couple minor issues, thus cabin is spectacular and we would definitely stay again
Very happy and satisfied. Thank you for your hard work.
Love the view and tranquility!
The cabin is wonderfully isolated with a fantastic and peaceful view of the lake. It has everything you need and more! The bed was extremely comfortable and we enjoyed making meals in the well stocked kitchen, taking long walks and playing billiards in the basement!
We stayed in late July and Vacasa seemed to have taken care of all the concerns of the early July reviewer. We had no issues with the house. The location and view are spectacular. The place was clean. There are some very bold chipmunks that are dying to get in the cabin any chance they can get and crawl all over, and into, the grill on a regular basis. So beware of that.
We did back into the drainage ditch by the road at one point. There was a stake laying on the ground that is apparently the "Watch out there's a ditch here
stake". I might suggest re-erecting that.
Overall a great experience and we'll definitely recommend it to others.
We did have a few things happen, one of the kitchens chairs fell apart throwing one of the girls down hitting the table, we placed that chair away from the table with a note on it, also the smoke alarms started going off at 2:30 am, this was due to a dead battery, this continued until 6:30 am until we found the one that was doing it, it would go off and wake us up and then when we seached for it, it would stop, we would go back to bed and go back to sleep and then it would do it again, needless to say we really didn't get to enjoy our last night, we took it down and placed it on the kitchen table with a note. The upstairs bathroom shower drain was slow draining and took awhile so we would have to wait to use the shower.The chipmunks were a pleasure to watch and when they got in the house the fun of chasing them out was quite funny, the patio screen has a gap that allows them to enter. But with all of that taken care of for the next family it will make it perfect!! We will be checking back for our next girls trip!!
We greatly appreciate your feedback as it better helps us to make improvements. The Property Manager is aware of your comments and will begin addressing them shortly. We are glad to see that your overall experience was a pleasant one. Thank you!
Beautiful, quiet mountain cabin! Perfect for getting away and relaxing!
The availability of satellite and wireless was misrepresented. There was a wireless transmitter and we could connect it but the transmitter would not connect to the ISP; stating wireless exists is not the same as stating internet access is available but we were misled to believe internet access would be available. The same was true for satellite as the only possible viewing was pay-per-view; there was no contract in place for anything else. Had we planned to stay a week I would have been irate. For 2 nights we just chalked it up to another indication that no one tells the truth anymore.
We apologize that the internet was not working for your stay; we will set that right as soon as possible. We hope you enjoyed being disconnected while surrounded by beautiful scenery in a cozy home. Thank you!
We have stayed at this cabin before and definitely will stay again.
The cabin is beautiful with a wonderful view. It's very remote and quiet, very peaceful. The head housekeeper was friendly and helpful. Overall, our family had a very nice getaway. Thank you.
This was easily one of if not the nicest cabin I ever stayed in... would highly recommend it to any one!
We enjoyed the quiet solitude of this property. There was a wonderful view from the deck. One morning as I was sitting on the deck putting on my shoes for a walk I heard some noises behind me. I looked behind me and there were 3 dear grazing about 30 feet from me. It was amazing.
We went on a few walks up and down the road and enjoyed the lack of people and the wonderful scenery.
The property was well maintained. The beds all seemed to be pillow tops, although not top of the line models. The bedding was nice, with plenty of pillows.
The kitchen had plenty of appliances and seemed to have everything we could need.
My only complaint is that the internet didn't work once while we were there despite calling Vacasa and resetting the router. The satellite worked well but occasionally blinked for a few minutes. We were told that the property just didn't get a good signal.
The satellite package is basic, so if you like to watch food network (like we do, we don't have satellite TV at home) you are out of luck.
Another highlight of the home was the awesome bathrooms and the jetted tub. There was also a claw foot tub but we never had a chance to try it out.
We went up again and it was just as pleasant vacasa had all there ducks in a row again cabin was clean plenty of wood propane laundry soap it was just perfect and we are booking again for november and we are taking up my parents and brothers to catch a peice of paradise thanks vacasa.
The cabin was awsome my family loved it. The cabin had plenty of everything we needed to have a good time fire wood, propane, towels, silverware i mean everything we just went 2 weekends ago and we are booking again for this weekend we were very pleased.
We only stayed 2 days but loved the cabin. It is spacious, comfortable and in a lovely area. It rained the first day but it just made the place feel very more cosy. The kitchen is well stocked, the grill worked well and we were happy to be able to cook our meals and not go out to eat.
The lakefront property was heavenly! The view from the deck was simply wonderful. Each night at sunset we watched the colors and the clouds over Lake Cascade
The kitchen is roomy and has everything that one could want to cook
The light fills the house and it stayed cool even with 90 degree weather
The cabin is easily assessible to great hikes and hotsprings and restaurants.
Lake Cascade is special. We walked along the old railroad bed that parallels the lake. There were some very nice unspoiled beach areas. The water is abit cold and that is the only disappointment as we are both swimmers. We had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend this place to others. A winner for sure!!!
Beautiful serene location. Fully equipped kitchen and comfortable beds. Amazing views of the lake and surrounding mountains.
We had such a wonderful family reunion experience! The views from the wrap-around balcony are so beautiful. Even though there is one bedroom, my 3 sisters, brother, husband and I had plenty of privacy with 3 levels and 3 lovely spacious bathrooms. The kitchen is roomy and well appointed and we all enjoyed cooking together. Our visit was too short! Thanks
Thank you for such great feedback! I am so glad your family reunion was so wonderful and that you enjoyed the spaciousness of this house. We look forward to seeing you again.
Our family had a great time at your cabin. Very clean and spacious. The view of the lake was wonderful. We would definitely rent this cabin again.
My Family just love the cabin, a cozy place to relax and spent time as a family. The pool table was a great bonus. My only Problem was the DVD VHS combo player, it had no working remote so it was hard to watch DVD's. We will come again, thanks
We are so glad to hear that you found this cabin to be just what you and your family needed this holiday season! Thank you for your feedback regarding the DVD/VHS remote, we're working on getting that fixed prior to our next guest's arrival.
The coziness of this place was great. We really felt at home. The view is awesome. We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommed this place for people who want to get away. We were able to access this home in a rental car because the weather was great, but I would highly recommend a 4WD if any weather is expected.
This was a location that you can't pass up! Get it quick if you know when you will go, because it will go fast!
Very nice cabin with incredible views. It was the perfect mountain get away. We got to see quite a bit of wildlife just right outside the door (deer & fox). Our family didn't want to leave.
What a wonderful weekend !!! I enjoyed the beautiful view and the cute decorated cabin !! The cabin was clean and I felt very much at home !!! Wished we would have gotten snowed in...I didn't want to leave!! We will stay here again for sure !
beautiful log cabin, amazing view, condition of cabin is immaculate, cascade, and McCall just a short beautiful drive, semi secluded vary quiet
We recently booked a rental in cascade online, not knowing what to expect. When we got there it was exactly as pictured could be happier, thanks Vacasa we are already planning another stay with you!
