Aspen Haus

Guest Rating:

Vacation rental house. Sleeps 6, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms. No pets allowed.

1668 Forrest Lawn Dr McCall, ID 83638 United States

What started as a small, lakeside log cabin in the 1940’s and grew to accommodate an enlarging family in the 1970’s, is today a quirky, well-loved mountain-lake get-away that offers breath-taking views, family-style comfort, and a great place to relax and recreate. The functionality and design of this cabin harken back to more simple days. You won’t find granite, or big tiled showers. You won’t see quarter-sawn oak or majestic two-story windows. You will see some rustic knotty pine walls (and furniture), hand-crafted fireplaces with rocks gleaned from around Idaho, and chatzkes from the 1940’s and on – an eclectic collection of one family’s little “treasures” added bit by bit to the cabin’s aura over the last 50 years. You also will find a relaxed atmosphere, a friendly neighborhood community, and of course, a big beautiful lake right outside your door.
 
There’s nothing fancy in this old cabin but there are lots of stories and we hope you’ll make your own stories here when you visit. Our family has lived and loved here for 50 years and five generations!
 
Four bedrooms sleep up to 8 people and the bunk-rumpus room can sleep up to 4 more with the trundle bed. Two bathrooms provide sinks, showers, and toilets. They won’t pass “spa” standards but they will get the job done as long as you’re not searching for “deluxe”.  You might find they even elicit a few smiles as you examine the 1940’s knotty pine or the 1970’s wallpaper.
 
If 1970’s wood paneling is your thing, you’ll love the big lofted family and dining area on the main floor complete with custom fireplace and circular stairs (mind the gap!).  The master bedroom invites you in with a special “white & gold” version of the paneling – tres chiq!
 
Downstairs it’s all 1940’s! Knotty wood walls, ceilings and even some original furniture. The fireplace provides a little “oh my, look at that” feel as well. It’s just for pretty though so please don’t actually try to use it. The bathroom is likely just for one person at a time unless you are really comfortable with your friend. J
 
Two decks – an upper “sit and visit” deck and a lower “stretch and snooze” (or read) deck. The lawn opens up in front of you as does the large community dock. Shared by 7 families the dock is our community meeting place. If it’s winter time, you’ll see it’s been “put away” for the winter. If it’s summer time, you’ll share it with great people, an occasional dog, a few geese, and lots of minnows.
 
Our community is welcoming and you’ll meet some great people when you stay here. Please do remember to honor and respect and keep the sound down in the early mornings and into the evenings.  Always keep your pets under control and pick up after them regularly throughout your stay.
 
We’re not the Ritz – but as long as fancy or high-brow aren’t on your must-have list, we’re confident you’ll enjoy our quirky, comfortable cabin that beckons you to the lake, to the slopes, to the links, or to the trails.

    Diane C from Garden Valley, ID recommends this vacation rental

    We were worried about the neighbors from previous reviews, but we had no difficulties at all and even invited them to the Shrimp Boil/Birthday party the last night. It's and older home, so no surprises, we weren't there for the house, we were there for the lake and fun we had on it!

    Great vintage home. Just what we needed for a weekend away. Everything in the house is as described and suited us well. We did have small kids and the house is not baby proof with the staircase but it didn’t hinder our stay.

    Great rental for our 10 people. The view of the lake was amazing. Easy bike ride into town. The cabin is older but had everything we needed.
