Secluded, lakeview cabin w/ deck, firepit, & pool table

This beautiful lake view cabin makes a wonderfully cozy retreat near Lake Cascade, but still offers all the modern amenities of home! Sip your coffee among the pine trees as you step out onto the spacious deck, or curl up by the fire in the stunning living room with custom-built log features. After a long day of hiking, snowmobiling, or mountain biking, enjoy a soothing soak in the master suite's luxurious tub. There's a gas grill on the outdoor deck; this is the ideal place for fun-filled gatherings with your group.

What's nearby:
The town is five miles south, giving you easy access to grocery shopping, dining, and golfing, and Lake Cascade is a short drive away, offering anglers a chance at rainbow trout, Coho salmon, perch, and bass during both summer and winter. The home is surrounded by national forests, which are full of trails for hiking, mountain biking, snowmobiling, and cross-country skiing. The towns of Donnelly and McCall are 13 and 26 miles north, respectively.

Things to know:
Free WiFi
Full kitchen (with dishwasher)
Two living areas
Four-wheel drive and/or chains required during the winter (winding 5-mile road from the main road - heavy snowfall could mean being snowed in until plows can make it - rare, but possibly 24-48 hours)

This house is PERFECT! Best cabin I've ever stayed in.
Melanie T. Oct 2019
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.
Michael W. Oct 2019
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!
Manager response:
The property manager is working on your concerns with her team so they will all be corrected. We hope to see you again!
David G. Sep 2019
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.
Neil P. Sep 2019
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.
Steve P. Aug 2019
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.
Rebecca E. Aug 2019
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
Manager response:
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!
Tim W. Aug 2019
Beautiful cabin with one of the best views of the lake.
Kawai S. Jul 2019
Awesome lake view getaway place
Carol S. Jun 2019
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.
Kathy K. May 2019
Very nice log cabin mountain home
Brian A. May 2019
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.
Barbara J. Nov 2018
Loved the private, wilderness aspect .
Baron L. Oct 2018
Great location. Beautiful house. Great view.
Kjestine C. Oct 2018
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.
Samuel P. Oct 2018
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.
Katherine C. Oct 2018
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!
Keith S. Oct 2018
Quiet setting, gorgeous lake & forest views
Stacey B. Sep 2018
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.
Michael H. Sep 2018
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.
Florian R. Aug 2018
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!
Lacee A. Jul 2018
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. :)
Eldon F. Jul 2018
Nice and quiet, beautiful cabin! Absolutely perfect other than having to drive a ways to get to the water.
bryan j g. Jul 2018
Family and I loved the cabin...would rent it again
Alex Z. Jun 2018
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!
CINDY H. Jun 2018
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!
Manager response:
We will get these items addressed right away and appreciate the feedback!
Glen F. May 2018
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.
Matt P. Nov 2017
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.
Abraham L. Oct 2017
A must. Nice view of the lake. Super peaceful. Great accommodation
Janet T. Sep 2017
The views from this cabin are amazing. Wonderful ambiance and amenities. A great place to share with friends and family!
Stacie F. Aug 2017
Everything was perfect!
Paola Maria R. Aug 2017
Veramente molto bello!
Arthur O. Aug 2017
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
Sherri M. Jul 2017
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
Greg T. Jun 2017
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.
Juliette J. Jun 2017
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.
Mari S. May 2017
The home is awesome but the view was the best thing of the whole weekend. I will be coming back for sure
Ronda H. May 2017
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
Tori R. Nov 2016
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!
Kyle M. Nov 2016
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).
Shirley L. Oct 2016
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".
Lorrie K. Oct 2016
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.
Juan C. Oct 2016
We had a blast we always do when we come here.
Karolyn G. Oct 2016
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.
Nealy K. Oct 2016
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.
Tammy J. Sep 2016
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!
Paul W. Aug 2016
Good for the most part other than the fact that there was no Hot water
Barbara C. Aug 2016
Beautiful location and great cabin with all t h e comforts of home. Would do it again a heartbeat.
Lacee A. Jul 2016
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.
Tammy W. Jul 2016
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.
Mickey A. Jul 2016
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!
Russell S. Jul 2016
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.
Jeff C. Jun 2016
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.
Alexandra M. Jun 2016
Other than a couple minor issues, thus cabin is spectacular and we would definitely stay again
Victor B. Jun 2016
Very happy and satisfied. Thank you for your hard work.
Lisa W. Oct 2015
Love the view and tranquility!
Sharon S. Sep 2015
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!
Jonathan L. Aug 2015
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.
Mickey A. Jul 2015
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!!
Manager response:
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!
Mattie R. Jul 2015
Beautiful, quiet mountain cabin! Perfect for getting away and relaxing!
Terry W. May 2015
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.
Manager response:
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!
Donna R. Dec 2014
Had a great time
James S. Dec 2014
We have stayed at this cabin before and definitely will stay again.
Julie B. Dec 2014
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.
Terrell P. Nov 2014
This was easily one of if not the nicest cabin I ever stayed in... would highly recommend it to any one!
Megan B. Nov 2014
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.
Carlos C. Oct 2014
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.
Carlos C. Oct 2014
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.
Irene H. Oct 2014
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.
Jai K. Aug 2014
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!!!
Troy And Julene A. Jul 2014
Beautiful serene location. Fully equipped kitchen and comfortable beds. Amazing views of the lake and surrounding mountains.
Diana H. Jun 2014
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
Manager response:
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.
Anna Luisa B. Jun 2014
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.
Ryan H. Dec 2013
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
Manager response:
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.
Danny D. Oct 2013
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.
Eric P. Aug 2013
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!
Erin A. Jun 2013
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.
Nancy P. Nov 2012
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 !
Andre W. Oct 2012
beautiful log cabin, amazing view, condition of cabin is immaculate, cascade, and McCall just a short beautiful drive, semi secluded vary quiet
Jesse B. Sep 2012
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!
