Comfortable lakefront condo w/ a shared pool, dock & gorgeous water views!

Let this comfortable third-level condo right on Payette Lake be your spot for a quick lakeside getaway or relaxing weekend with your significant other! Timberlake Studio in the Sky is also a great option for travelers watching their wallets: not only is there much more space than in a traditional hotel room, but there's a full kitchen and gas grill on the deck for preparing your own meals! Aside from the great price, you'll love the beautiful water views, and the variety of deluxe amenities included, like access to a private dock on the lake, colorful beach lounge area, and sparkling blue swimming pool.

A well designed layout makes the most of the space with overstuffed leather sectional sofas placed near the fireplace and flatscreen TV for easy viewing. Winter sports accessories adorn the walls, giving the space a lodge-like feel, and the shelves are stacked with interesting books and retro knick-knacks. Borrow a book and head out to the deck for some reading with a view, or just stay nice and warm inside on cool nights while you turn the pages. There's also a DVD player, cable, and WiFi for more entertainment options.

Home cooked meals are very easy to put together in the full kitchen. Equipped with all the standard appliances, microwave, coffee maker, butcher block island, glassware, plates and utensils needed, you'll easily be enjoying a quick breakfast before hitting the pool or an outdoor grilled steak dinner on the deck. Afterwards, let the dishwasher do all the work while you finish up the wine and chat about the next day's plans.

During the day, it's easily stored and out of sight but at night, a comfortable, queen sized Murphy bed pulls down from the wall. The full bathroom was recently updated with a new vanity and lovely vessel sink and also includes a shower/tub combo. This condo will comfortably sleep two guests, with a maximum occupancy of two.

The real star of this homey and vintage-style condo is the Timberlake resort community! Awaiting you downstairs is a wonderful collection of perks - a beach with lounge chairs, a fire pit, and swimming pool overlooking the lake. Spend a lazy, sunny afternoon relaxing in a lounge chair, listening to music or podcasts, and enjoying the cool breeze off the water.

Besides the stellar on-site attractions, McCall is perfectly located for a day of exploring the natural beauty of Ponderosa State Park, less than half a mile to the north. Golfing is one block away from the condo at the McCall Golf Course and Payette Lake offers all the usual water attractions like swimming, boating, water skiing, and fishing. For a special afternoon out on the water, take a 90 minute or three-hour cruise on the lake for great photo opportunities and information on local history.

As you may have guessed from this condo's interior design, fabulous downhill skiing and snowboarding are very popular here during the winter months, with multiple resorts located right nearby. For Nordic skiing and snowshoeing, there are also hundreds of miles of backcountry groomed trails only minutes away. Definitely, a year-round destination, this Timberlake Studio in the Sky is a great choice for those seeking a comfortable environment, maximum value, and easy access to outdoor activities.

How clean it was, the beautiful view of the lake.
kathryn w. Sep 2018
This condo did not disappoint! The view was spectacular! Condo is perfect size for 2 adults. We will definitely be staying here again!
Kimille D. Aug 2018
We loved the view and the location and the access to the lake.
Robert W. Aug 2018
The condo was clean & comfortable, the deck & view was spectacular, the beach & pool were wonderful, short walk or bike ride to downtown, and the sunsets were perfect. Even the fold down Murphy bed was comfortable! Thanks...we'll be back!!
Brandi G. Jul 2018
Beautiful view of the lake, clean pool, and full kitchen was super convenient. Nice clean linens and very clean overall. Appreciated the BBQ grill also. Would recommend to family/friends.
Rich F. Jul 2018
My wife and I absolutely loved the experience we had at Timberlake great accommodations and great warm friendly people. Thinkin maybe one day we might try to own a little piece of heaven there.
Kris H. Apr 2018
We loved it and will definitely book it again!!
Mike M. Mar 2018
Nice town, good neighborhood, well furnished condo. Good kitchen, nice living area, Murphy bed is comfortable and operates easily to free up floor space during the day. Good library with variety of material on local topics.
Dawn K. Feb 2018
This was our fifth visit to Timberlake in four years, so that should be a pretty good indicator of how much we enjoy it! The recent upgrades of new, vinyl plank flooring throughout kitchen and bath areas, as well as new, functional (electric) fireplace, are lovely additions.

As always, so very appreciative that Timberlake's owners are willing to share their clean, cozy & comfy condo with "the rest of us"! Such a great place to stay, for our winter play! : )
Mike M. Feb 2018
This was a super find for me. I travel to McCall annually to ski and generally book on short notice. Usually I’m in a hotel, but this efficiency was priced competitively and provided nice living space, kitchen/dining space. Comfortable Murphy Bed folds into wall unit to free up living space.
I’ll look for this condo for my next trip to McCall.
Joe T. Jan 2018
We enjoyed our stay. place was very cozy! we got some got relaxing time that was needed. Loved every day looking out the windows at the lake.
Patrick C. Sep 2017
We had stayed at Timberlake a few years back and wanted to try it again. The property is even better than before. Perfect location. Everything went smoothly. Definitely need a little black out curtain for the window by the front door. A spring rod, some little curtain rings and some cute fabric could be done so easily and cheaply, and people who don't like bright sun shining in their face at 7:00 AM would wake up so much happier. We ended up taping foil to the window just as another reviewer mentioned.
Edith S. Aug 2017
There was nothing to complain about; this was a completely problem-free transaction from beginning to end. Everything was exactly as advertised; communications and instructions were crystal-clear. It was a beautiful location and the amenities were all great. Thank you!
Robert W. Aug 2017
This is a great condo with a nice beach, swimming pool, boat dock, and location close to downtown McCall. We already reserved it for 2018.
Patty W. Jun 2017
Very comfortable, clean rental with wonderful views. Beach area with chairs and camp fire ring a big plus, along with the pool.
Rita M. May 2017
It was the perfect size for 2 people. Excellent location & view of the lake. Very comfortable murphy bed & all the necessary appliances. We loved waking up & seeing the lake from our bed. It was very quiet & not many people there.
Dawn K. Mar 2017
Our March 2017 stay at Timberlake was our fourth winter visit to date, so that should speak for itself in regard to our ongoing satisfaction with the property.

We continue to be smitten with Timberlake's comfort, cleanliness and ample accouterments, and look forward to next year's "repeat treat"! : )
Dawn & Ken K. Feb 2017
Our February 2017 visit to Timberlake Studio In The Sky was our third in as many years, and we are happy to say that it continues to provide very cozy, comfortable, and pretty darn close to perfect accommodations for my husband and I.

In 2016, we experienced a bit of a hiccup with Vacasa and their housekeeping service in regard to condo’s readiness/cleanliness for our visit, but were delighted to find it living back up to its “neat-n-tidy” title once again this year.

We did encounter a minor issue with several living room electrical outlets, but luckily the breaker panel is readily at hand, and found the breaker for these was off for some reason. Ta-da --- let there be light! : )

Wi-fi worked fine for three of the four days of our stay, but could not connect the morning of our departure. No big deal really, but we were interested in keeping up with weather/temp stats on Brundage, since skiing is what keeps bringing us back to our Timberlake “date”.

Also might mention for anyone that may be a light sleeper, the fans in the electric wall heaters can be a little “distracting”. We remedied this by just turning heat off at night, and adding another comforter to the bed. A quick turn of the dial in the a.m., and you’ll once again be toasty before you can say: “It’s time for toast!”

We eat in for the duration of our stay, and have always found the kitchen to be well stocked with “gear” from year to year. We have enough visits under our belt, we know what additional items we need to throw in to supplement its ample amenities.

It was evident (and a big eye opener) to see that the Timberlake homeowners must have taken on a “splinter group” over the past year, and put new, cedar shake siding on the entire complex --- what a job that must have been, but it sure looks great with a “fresh face”!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay again this year, and can’t thank the homeowners of “Studio in the Sky” enough for entrusting their personal property investment to Vacasa, and subsequently to people, such as us, that appreciate the opportunity to experience its delightful and unique charm! : )
Titus M. Feb 2017
Beautiful view and a nice cozy condo for two.
Katie T. Jan 2017
This little studio has it all! It's in the perfect location and has everything you need for a little getaway. It was clean and cozy!
Mark S. Jan 2017
This property is perfect for a couple any time of the year. Great location and even better views of the lake. The space is manageable, but not really big enough for 4 adults; in my opinion. However, for anyone looking at this property and subsequently this review, there are two things that you need to keep in mind. For us they weren't deal breakers, but if we had known we might have selected a different property. First, the property description (in several spots) says that that it sleeps 4. This property will not sleep 4 adults comfortably at all. It has one queen size pull down bed, which is surprisingly comfy, and a large corner sofa. In my opinion, two teenagers would not have enough room to sleep on each end of the couch. So, if you're a couple with two small children this property will be fantastic. Second, the pictures show a fireplace. Though we didn't initially select fireplace in our filter search, the presence of the fireplace in the photos set us up for disappointment. Not a deal breaker for us this time, but should a cozy fire be your thing this property doesn't have one; "decoration only".
Other than those two minor observations, the property is lovely inside as well as out. The grounds are absolutely beautiful with fresh snow cover.
Sarah K. Dec 2016
Great water view from this cozy little condo! It had everything we needed for our stay which made it really nice. The bed was comfy and we loved watching the snow fall from bed. Close to town and SUPER quiet! Loved it and will definitely be back!
Corinn E. Nov 2016
Perfect for a romantic getaway, this condo has it all. We arrived just as the sun was setting over Payette Lake and quickly headed down to the private dock to take it in. Waking up to the gorgeous view outside the balcony made me want to stay forever. Even in the off-season, McCall has plenty to offer in terms of restaurants. Our favorites were the Sushi Bar and Toll Station.

Any concerns we had about the Murphy bed were quickly dismissed. Extremely comfortable and easy to pull and up and down from the wall. The couch was comfy with plenty of blankets to snuggle up with. The kitchen had everything we needed and the bathroom was spotless.

Overall, Vacasa makes the check-in process was smooth and easy. The home was clean and well-stocked. You will not regret renting this condo!!
Colby D. Nov 2016
This was a comfy, cozy little spot for the two of us. The view was gorgeous and being able to look out the glass doors as soon as we woke up was a huge bonus. It took just minutes to get to where we wanted to go. Overall, we both really enjoyed this spot and plan to hopefully be back soon.
Nataliya B. Aug 2016
We enjoyed our stay very much. The view is beautiful. Kids loved the pool and sand beach, it was nice to have our boat in the water while we were here. No big complaints about the room, the bed was a little uncomfortable, but manageable for a couple of nights. The studio has been renovated on the outside, looks great. Balcony was amazing for breakfast. We will be back. Best McCall experience so far.
Jodi D. Aug 2016
We loved our stay! What a perfect spot on the lake! Can't beat the view. Walk to town, trails, park etc! Love, love, love this place. We will be back
Tom K. Jul 2016
We enjoyed the top-floor view. Murphy bed more comfortable than expected.
Jessica S. Jul 2016
Walkable to the main downtown area and right on the private beach. The view and location were perfect.
Guillermo B. May 2016
Very clean and beautiful studio. The property is clean and well kept and is at a close walk from the town center. I would definitely recommend this studio to anyone interested in spending a few days in wonderful Mccall....
Carolyn C. May 2016
This condo is perfect for one or two to enjoy the incredible view of Payette Lake and is located perfectly for hiking in Ponderosa State Park (down the road from the property) or going to town (walkable) or enjoying time on the beach, just behind.

There is every conceivable amenity, and it is clear the owners have decorated leaving some of their precious treasures for guests to enjoy. They also have shelves of books available.

This is a great value--you will be thrilled you chose it!
David S. Apr 2016
Location/ view is great. Very small studio apartment but adequate for a couple in love.
Jim B. Apr 2016
Beautiful, relaxing view of the lake and mountains from the deck. Sunsets were stunning! A perfect place for a couple to getaway and relax.
Shawna B. Mar 2016
This studio condo is beautifully furnished and the kitchen equipped with everything you will need. The bed is comfortable. Love this location. You cannot beat the stunning view of Payette Lake.
Gary K. Feb 2016
The location is great, right on the lake with wonderful views. The unit, itself, however, really needs improvement. The fireplace had not worked since December and when we spoke to maintenance he said it was too involved to fix and it sounded like they had no plans to fix it. The sliding glass door did not lock. Yes, it's the 3rd floor, but still . . . Maintenance knew about it and again, sounds like no plans to fix it soon. There were no blinds in the bathroom and it looked out over the parking lot. Also, no blinds in the entry, which you walk through it get to the bathroom. We taped up paper towels and aluminum foil. Had constant trouble with the cable; we found the trick was to leave the cable on and turn off the tv. However, before we discovered that there was about a day and a half without tv. The kitchen needs some serious improvement in pots and pans. No real pots to speak of and the only pans are cast iron. I'm not a fan of cast iron and since you're not supposed to wash them with soap and water, I didn't want to use something that others had used and not washed. Every airbnb or vrbo we've stayed at have always had tons of spices; this place really had nothing. The murphy bed was next to the tv, so you couldn't lie in bed and watch tv. A personal preference for sure, but we really missed that at night. The only drapes in the place (over the sliding glass door) were very thin and as soon as it was light outside, it came through the drapes. There's also virtually no storage for clothes. There's a small closet next to the sink, with bedding and cleaning supplies that you can hang a few things in and a few empty drawers by the sink, but that's about it. It was barely adequate for our stay in McCall but will never book again and don't recommend it, unless they do some serious improvements.
Manager response:
We are disappointed to see that this stay was not more enjoyable for these guests. The Property Manager will work with the owner on making improvements.
Shashi A. Feb 2016
It was fine. Nice view.
Jackie M. Feb 2016
If you just want a getaway for the 2 of you, this is the place. Gorgeous view and close to everything.
Jason N. Jan 2016
Great price for a great room. Perfect for two people.
Daniela W. Jan 2016
Wonderful little condo overlooking the lake; the perfect size for two. Hoping to visit McCall again soon!
Kim S. Oct 2015
My husband and I loved our trip to McCall. The drive to get there was so beautiful and the weather was amazing. The condo was super cute perfect for two people. The Murphy bed was comfortable. We didnt want for anything. We will be back again.
Maureen P. Jul 2015
We really enjoyed our stay. The view is amazing! I was concerned that the Murphy bed would not be comfortable but it was very comfortable. The condo is well appointed and everything we needed was there. There were frosty glasses in the freezer and the filtered water pitcher in the fridge was appreciated. The condo is very clean. I was concerned that the 92+ temperatures would be uncomfortable but it was cool in the condo when we arrived at noon. It did warm up of course when we open up the slider to enjoy the beautiful view and lovely sounds on the lake. The pool is beautiful and there is a private beach. It is close to all restaurants and activities. There is a dividing door that pulls out from the wall to give privacy between the living and sleeping area. My only suggestions are: provide a sofa pull out sleeper as this condo really only sleeps 2. With the sleeper it would sleep 4. Provide a couple of fans for warm temperatures. We anticipated the heat and stopped and purchased 2 Honeywell turbo fans for $15 each. Without them it would have been uncomfortable. They are compact and very efficient and it would be great to know they were there when visiting in hot temperatures. We visit McCall several times a year and the summers in July and August are very warm. Just those 2 things would make this a perfect place to stay. Unbeatable view!!!
Brian C. Apr 2015
Great location very convenient to downtown and the state park. Lovely views. The unit is compact (it would be somewhat tight for four people), but as I was on my own, it was perfect. I'd certainly stay there again.
Karla S. Feb 2015
The description on this rental is a little misleading. It lists an occupancy of 4 but only sleeps 2. We booked this rental through VRBO which lists this property as a 1 bedroom and accommodates 4. This is not true. There is one Murphy bed and no bedrooms. It's cozy for 2 and would be fine but 4 is a little crowded and people will have to sleep on the couch. Otherwise, the condo is clean, has a beautiful view and close to town and Ponderosa Park.
Dawn K. Jan 2015
A trusty Griswold in the pan drawer...flannel sheets...a magazine rack in the "loo"...the "History of Guinness" nestled on the bookshelves amongst other good company in the petite, but varied library. These were just a few of the more subtle amenities offered up at Timberlake that made my husband and I feel right at home! We found the property to be just as portrayed in the Vacasa website photos --- exceptionally clean, comfy, and cozy, and the perfect size/space for the two of us. We dined in for the duration of our stay, and definitely give the kitchen high marks for being well-appointed. The queen size Murphy bed was comfortable, and very easy to flop down (an on!) after our days spent skiing at Brundage. We thoroughly enjoyed a great stay at a great place, and hope to spend time at Timberlake again!
Manager response:

Jennifer A. Jan 2015
It's a perfect little place for a couple. View is fantastic. Had all amenities necessary. We would stay here again.
Pat Z. Jul 2014
The property is beautiful, well kept and clean! The management were nice and helpful at all times. The owners that were there on site were very nice people, helped out where ever you needed.
Joshah A. Jun 2014
A great place at a great price. This property is in our list for future bookings. Everything you need is available at this rental. The only minor issue which we saw was that the wifi internet was bit flaky.
But if you want to have a calm quite vacation a great place to stay.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review. We haven't heard any other feedback about the wifi being a problem. Hopefully this was an isolated problem but we appreciate the feedback. We're glad that this great home has made your list for future stays.
Barbara B. Feb 2014
My husband and i stayed here for a cat ski and ski weekend at Brundaget. The condo was perfect for the two of us. Very comfortable furniture, nice Murphy bed and the best outfitted kitchen we've encountered at a vacation rental. Beautiful view of the lake from the deck--we saw it only in the winter but I'm sure the summer will be spectacular and we plan to visit and stay here again.
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We are glad that you enjoyed the home and we hope to see you in the summer!
Mark M. Jul 2013
Timberlake is a hidden gem offering a small private beach, swimming pool, beautiful lake views and close proximity to downtown McCall. This unit offered a very comfortable Murphy bed and plenty of kitchen supplies. Unit was cleaned well prior to our arrival. The unit had a lot of items on display, so don't plan on using a lot of counter space in the kitchen or living area. Outdoor dining is on a charming deck with a table and four chairs, indoor dining offers a folding table and two chairs.
