Quiet, tree-lined property with a gorgeous deck and an expansive yard!

Discover your own patch of peace and tranquility when you stay at this charming two-bedroom cabin just 10 minutes from downtown McCall and near the banks of the Payette River. Relax among the pines on the massive deck and watch the kids frolic out in the big grass-covered yard. This is quintessential cabin - rustic and cozy - yet offering many of the modern amenities you enjoy at home, like free Wifi and cable TV. You'll find the best of both worlds waiting at this charming McCall vacation rental!

After a morning kayak-ride on the Payette, settle into this comfy living area under timber-trussed, wood ceilings and wood-paneled walls. Enjoy the view through the multiple windows. Or, grab a book from the library in the little reading room and relax with it in the rocking chair or on one of the soft couches. Mornings can be chilly. Freshen up before dinner in the full bathroom on this level, or, in the second full bathroom upstairs.

Set your designated chef(s) loose in this fully equipped kitchen, where they'll have everything they need to whip up a great meal: stove, big fridge, microwave, and complete set of pots, pans, and utensils. Sit down to your meal at the picnic-style table. When its warm, make it surf and turf fresh from the gas grill out on the deck. Or, give the cooks a break and make it a night out in McCall, where you can sit down at one of the dozens of restaurants offering every sort of fare.

At bedtime, this cozy cabin has two bedrooms and a loft - big enough for six to bed down comfortably. Put the kids in the downstairs bedroom, where you'll find two twin beds and plenty of room for their clothes, with two closets and a big dresser. There's a private bedroom upstairs where you'll sleep comfortably on a queen bed, and have the use of a small writing desk where you can scribble in your journal, or sort through the brochures you've collected during the day. The loft also has a futon with room for two more guests. In the morning, step out on the deck for a breath of fresh air before breakfast.

When you stay in this charming cabin, you'll truly have the best of both worlds. Nestled in a wooded enclave, and just ten minutes or so from the blue waters of Payette Lake, you'll relish the peace and quiet a bit away from the city, and you'll be close to great fishing, rafting, kayaking and hiking. If you're a golfer, McCall Municipal is 15 minutes away. Enjoy more outdoor fun up at Ponderosa State Park, or lounge on the sand at popular Davis Beach. When the snow flies, there's great skiing, snowboarding, and sledding at Brundage Mountain, less than half an hour away.

Whether your idea of fun involves a tackle box, a kayak, skis, a bike, or just sitting on the deck among the pines, this awesome cabin is waiting to be your vacation headquarters during your visit to the colorful and exciting McCall/Payette Lake area.

We had such a wonderful time at this property, again. We came last year to McCall and stayed in the same was perfect.
Whitney C. Jun 2019
Great house! Very clean and well stocked. Loved the quiet and beautiful area! Would gladly stay again.
Kourosh A. May 2019
We loved every bit of it. The cabin was so clean and nice and had everything we needed. I would definitely rent again!

We had a very enjoyable stay at this cabin. It is very clean and well furnished. Though the kitchen is small, it had everything we needed to cook our own meals including an electric griddle and crockpot.

Only two things to be aware of:
1) The beds were a little smaller than expected and so one of our kids slept on a couch because only one could fit on the futon. However, it didn't put a damper on our stay at all.
2) It is a little further out of town than we expected. It is in a beautiful location but you are about 15 minutes out of McCall (south and east). It worked fine for us, but something to be aware of.

Again - awesome cabin and one we would not hesitate to stay in on another McCall vacation.

This cabin had everything we wanted and more. We wanted something comfortable and homie that highlighted the outdoors. It did just that and more. We loved the big windows that looked out over the snow covered forest. It was very private with no immediate back neighbors. The kitchen was big and well equipped, the beds comfortable and we loved the little shampoos and soaps. We used the BBQ grill on the back deck for every meal...that was a huge plus! We enjoyed every minute of our stay and had fun playing in the snow. We would stay there again!

This is a really nice cabin with everything you need to stay for several days. It is very conveniently located and we loved our stay there.
Elizabeth C. Sep 2018
this was the first time my husband and I went to McCall ever and we absolutely loved it! Staying in the Kearney cabin was fantastic. It was clean and we greatly appreciated the fact that it was stocked up on kitchen supplies. We have been recommending it to our family and friends and we can’t wait to come back next year!
Annette D. Aug 2018
The Kearney Cabin was perfect! We reconnected with family we hadn't seen in years. We hosted dinner on two occasions, everybody fell in love with the place. Our little nephews loved it so much they wanted to spend all their time with us at the cabin. We had two adorable four-legged furry visitors (I think they were the neighbors' dogs) who came by every morning to visit with us. The cabin was so comfortable, we have no complaints, no problems, no was perfect. When we return to McCall, we would love to stay in the cabin again.
Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful house!
Nate B. Jul 2018
Loved this cabin. Would stay here again. Only complaint is the dryer didn’t work. Everything else was fantastic.
Manager response:
We apologize we did not realize the dryer was not functioning as it should. The repair has been scheduled. Thanks!

The cabin was clean, the beds were comfy, the area is so close to McCall. It is the perfect cabin for a winter or summer getaway! Absolutely loved everything about this place!
Kara D. Jul 2018
The cabin was wonderful, had enough space for our family, nice, clean and so comfortable! The deck was large and nice. No neighbors right on top of you. Enough privacy to enjoy and relax with the family. Would definitely rent this cabin again!!
DAN B. May 2018
Beautiful and peaceful location. Definitely would stay there again.
Robin Marie Y. Feb 2018
We enjoyed the beautiful views that the Kearney Cabin offered, although with very few window coverings the flip side is lack of privacy. But the cabin itself is lovely and feels spacious and quaint all at once. The woods surrounding are vast, and yet there are other cabins near enough by that you don't feel too isolated. The heater system works well, but there is also a wood burning stove if you care to bring your own firewood. The little organ under the stairs was a happy surprise, as was the well stocked kitchen equipment. Getting the internet to connect was a challenging unhappy surprise, as was the loud unexpected blasts of noise from the water heater. But after a few phone calls the next day it connected, and as soon as we figured out where the sounds was coming from the water heater didn't bother us too much. Overall we enjoyed our time there and had a fun experience.
Cindy V. Jan 2018
Very clean. Wonderful views and accommodations! Easy to find and not too close to town. Would highly recommend staying at the Kearney Cabin for sure!
Michelle W. Jan 2018
The cabin was cozy and the wood burning stove was amazing. Had a big yard and we loved that we didn't look out to neighbors and had big windows to look out as it snowed the whole time. Would definitely stay in this cabin again.

We loved the location of this cabin and also how family-friendly it was! We especially appreciated things like the booster seat and play pen that were available for us to use. Our four young kiddos had an absolute blast running around and playing. While we loved the house and the property/location, we found a lot of mouse droppings, especially in the kitchen (we had to pre-wash everything!), there was garbage scattered throughout the yard, and even though this was listed as a non-smoking rental, there were several cigarette butts on the upstairs deck. There were also a lot of dead flies, and a neighbor dog who came around every day. Our kiddos are very young, so it made me nervous to have a strange dog coming around constantly.

I would love to say that we were perfectly happy, but honestly for the price I would have expected it to be cleaner and the property more well cared for.
Manager response:
It was an unfortunate discovery that the guest prior to this visit had violated the non-smoking policy. We did our best to dispose of all cigarette butts and apologize for overlooking the deck. While the weather is turning cold it can become a common discovery of mice entering a home. We are always working toward eliminating this finding and we apologize for this discovery. We work hard to honor our home owner's requests to enforce polices of non-smoking and no pets. The ongoing challenge can be to thwart neighborhood dogs that may be roaming free. There is no leash laws to help us and at times the result can be dogs getting into trash and coming onto other homeowners' properties. We prefer an occasional deer; however, dogs and bears can be an issue here in the mountains.

Overall we enjoyed our 5 night stay. Location is great. Very quiet. Spacious home.
The bed in the loft wasn't really a bed and was incredibly uncomfortable. I'm still sore today and it's been two nights since we were there. It's some homemade wooden boxes turned into a bed frame with a futon mattress topped with a mattress then topped again with another futon....???? Strange. There was two plastic chairs on the deck and a few folding chairs in the garage but that was all for "patio furniture". Very lacking there.
Ian P. Jul 2017
Such a beautiful and comfortable cabin! Thank you so much for the stay!
Lisa M. Jul 2017
We love the location of this house. That being said, there were some downsides for us. It just seemed like the house has not been kept up & could have been prepared better for guests... especially for the price paid. Thanks!
Jodi S. Oct 2016
This was a beautiful rustic cabin with a great porch. It was located near hiking trails and close to downtown McCall . The photos online did make it seem more private than it was, but I would still stay here again. The only neighbor that was pretty close was across the street however the porch and windows faced a different direction so it wasn't a problem. I did have to vacuum the place before we really settled in - lots of flies which I hope they will fix for future guests. Would recommend in colder months to keep the wood stove going to warm up the cabin for the night otherwise it was a bit cold. Bring firewood! It was very relaxing and a wonderful getaway.

Awesome cabin
Cadence B. Sep 2016
We had a wonderful family vacation at this unique cabin. We got to explore a different part of McCall, ... a nearby trailhead is close by too, and we enjoyed the privacy the cabin offers.
Garrett C. Sep 2016
The furniture is fairly outdated. Beds were not very comfortable. The lighting on this property is crazy and for the life of us, we could not figure out how to turn the outside lights on. It is very open..including the bedrooms, so if you want privacy, say from your kids...this is not really the place for that. There is a new entryway, however it was not totally finished and you have to make a large step to get onto the entry deck or you would step in some holes. The dishwasher is the loudest one I have ever heard. At any rate, some inexpensive updating with lighting and furniture is needed here. We did love all of the windows!
Manager response:
We are sorry to see that there were some disappointments with this stay. This is an older cabin that the owner is slowly upgrading. The hole by the step has been filled, and the light switches have been labeled.
Michael & Christine B. Jun 2016
Beautiful location! Brand new outdoor grill! Books and games were great! TV and Wifi were great and worked! Close to McCall but not in town. Close to day-hikes. Very convenient for whatever you wish.
Dave B. Jun 2016
If you like rustic & funky, this cabin is for you.
Jana S. Apr 2016
5 friends and I stayed here for the weekend and had a BLAST! The cabin felt open and welcoming. All of us slept well on the beds. I loved having the windows to let the sunlight in. Normally I don't like to have blinds/curtains open at home, but the neighbors here aren't too close so it didn't feel weird. The showers worked great, lots of hot water and good water pressure. We felt right at home. I plan to come back with my husband this summer!
Andrew S. Mar 2016
We had a great time at this cabin. It had more than enough room for our family of 5.
Jaron S. Jun 2015
We had a wonderful time staying at this cabin and hope to return in the future
Luz D. Jun 2015
We definitely love this cabin and were very pleased with the location you are not in town but are about 5 minutes away from town. We loved the views from the large windows and just feeling like we were miles away from home in the natural beautiful wilderness. We were pleased to have the wifi because our phones didnt have service otherwise. We were also able to check in early which was great but because our phones didnt have service we didnt realize until we got service at a local restaurant that had wifi and our only concern was the doors they are very easy to open even if locked but besides that i would definitely be back here for another vacation maybe next time in the winter .
Tracy H. Mar 2014
The cabin has big windows overlooking the nice big property as well as a great deck. Perfect if you have kids or dogs that want to run around and explore. It is also nice to not have neighbors too close to capture the get-a-way feeling. This cabin also has all the basics and is pretty accommodating. We have stayed at cleaner cabins but this was nice overall. It is a pretty short drive into town (10 minutes). Nice neighborhood to walk around with nice neighbors.
Morgan G. Nov 2013
I've stayed in many places in McCall, but this is a new favorite. It is the true "cabin in the woods" with beautiful mountain views, peace and quiet, a warm wood stove, and an open and sunny layout. For the price this place is amazing. The family loved it too! The only drawback is that it doesn't have a hot-tub. If they added one, this would be the true "dream retreat." Overall things were in great condition, with a few little/typical glitches, such as flaky hinges on one of the cabinet doors, and dead battery in garage remote. But apart from those, this was wonderful.
Manager response:
Thanks for your great review. We'll see if we can get a hot tub added. Thanks for sharing your experience with us!

This property was in a great location and a nice quiet environment. It is a little dated but clean. Might be a little over priced.
