This home is located in a beautiful setting nestled in the trees on the west side of Payette Lake. Enjoy this lake front property with a private dock in a beautiful private cove with terraced yard leading down to the lake. Beach area available near the dock as well. There is potential for boat trailer or a 2-place snowmobile trailer parking at this property, although the road in is not paved and can be a bit bumpy. You will need to be pretty good at maneuvering the trailer around and backing out. Overall, the driveway is good for about 4 cars (would be blocking each other in) total.

The living room is open and airy with expansive windows overlooking Payette Lake and the back deck. The kitchen is open to the small dining area and living space. There is a nice wood-burning stove for chilly nights and a new flat screen TV here as well. Enjoy the lake from either the top or bottom decks. The master bedroom on the main floor has a Queen size bed with attached bathroom and soaking tub encased in wood (no jets). There are sliding glass doors to access the deck. The upstairs loft would be great for the kids or overflow guests. There is a reading nook along with 2 Twin beds. This loft is open to the living area below. There are 3 bedrooms located downstairs along with one full bathroom. This bathroom has a shower, but not bathtub as well as the laundry. Two of the rooms have Queen beds, one of those has an attached "nook" with a separate Twin bed as well. The "den" or room in between the two guest rooms has a set of Twin bunk beds along with a Queen sofa sleeper. In addition, there is a Double size roll-a-way in one of the lower bedrooms. Each bedroom along with the living room has access to the decks through sliding glass doors.

This cabin is approximately 2300 square feet and will comfortably sleep 14 people. It is a little older and certain areas have not been updated, including the kitchen appliances, however the home is impeccably clean and would provide a very enjoyable location for a family vacation. This home features a lot of stairs accessing the beach and dock. Parts of the walkway down have railings while others currently do not. This may not be ideal for anyone with mobility issues. Many homes on the west side of the lake are set up from the lake and therefore require a fair amount of stairs to get down to the water. Once down to the lake, you have a private dock and beach to enjoy. Other great amenities of this home include Satellite TV, Wireless Internet and a Gas BBQ on the deck along with great views of the lake.
This home is professionally managed for quality, not "by owner".

"This was a lovely home in a beautiful location, with room for many people to sleep. However, there are too few bathrooms! The owner should consider allowing a portable toilet for the use of large family groups-this would have alleviated our difficulties with the bathroom shortage. Otherwise, the home was lovely and fun to stay in. We appreciated having basic supplies at hand-nicely done. "

"The location of the cabin was nice and the sleeping arrangements were fine. The electrical outlets in the lower bathroom and parts of the kitchen did not work. Many of the lights needed new lightbulbs. The sliding glass doors and some of the windows leak when it rains. Dock has some screws sticking out which could damage a boat. It seems overall the place needed some maintenance and TLC"

"The pictures were very deceiving. It states a beach, there is definitely not a beach, nor any area in the back for anything. The firepit was less than adequate. Very disappointed with that as we were expecting to be able to have outside activities other than just using the dock. Especially since we were told as well as saw pictures that depicted a beach. InIdaho Ed. Note: Traci, the lake was unusually high over the 4th of July weekend this year. There normally is a beach as depicted in the photo. "

"The number of beds were as advertized. However, ONE shower for 8 adults is not consistent with the image this property aspires to."
