Travelers who love outdoor adventure without the resort-town bustle will treasure their time at a McCall / Valley County vacation rental in Donnelly! This charming Idaho town sits on the northern end of Lake Cascade, just half an hour from the town of McCall.
While Donnelly may be a bit quieter and less flashy than its bustling neighbor to the north, it boasts its own small-town appeal and is a gateway to year-round outdoor adventures. From mountain biking to snowmobiling to huckleberry festivals, Donnelly has a little something special for everyone! And whether you seek a secluded mountain cabin or a golfside condo, Vacasa has the perfect Donnelly vacation rental waiting for you.
To the east is Boise National Forest, with miles of secluded trails for hiking and biking. Between the resorts of Tamarack and Jug Mountain, each within ten miles of Donnelly, visitors will find no shortage of golf and horseback riding in the summer. In the winter, miles of groomed trails are available for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, with downhill skiing available at Tamarack. The surrounding areas are also a prime destination for snowmobilers, especially the adventurous types who enjoy zipping across a frozen Lake Cascade in the coldest months!
Lake Cascade may be Donnelly's most famous body of water, but not its only one: the nearby Payette River offers even more fishing, kayaking, and canoeing. Warmer months also bring golfers to the Donnelly area, with eight courses within fourteen miles of town (the closest being Osprey Meadows at Tamarack).
Beyond outdoor adventure, Donnelly is well-known for its lively festival scene. Each August brings the much-anticipated huckleberry festival, and the nearby historic settlement of Roseberry hosts music nights, arts & crafts fairs, and ice cream socials throughout the summer. For travelers who love golf, skiing, fishing, snowshoeing, or simply curling up by a cozy fireplace with a good book and a gorgeous view, a Donnelly cabin rental may be just the ticket for your next Idaho getaway!
