About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 7-8)


You will have beautiful views of the lake from three sides of the Cedar House, thanks to the 2011 tornado! The property is still wooded, but the views are amazing. Get away from the hustle and bustle of town and watch the sunset from the open deck, or have coffee and watch the sunrise from the covered porch. Early morning risers will enjoy watching the deer saunter through the property and hummingbirds flit around the feeders.. Fireflies will enchant you in the evenings! On cool winter evenings, enjoy the chimenea on the deck, or the fireplace in the living room.

Swim in beautiful Grand Lake. Rent a boat or jetski and get out on the lake and you will understand why we love it here!

Cook out on the grill, or drive a few minutes to Ketchum for dinner. Other good restaurants are within 20 minutes. Or, there are several casinos within an hour of the Cedar House!

Our home has slate floors and countertops in the living, dining, bath and kitchen areas - wet feet don't bother us! Lovely pine flooring is in the bedrooms.

One queen-sized bedroom upstairs, one queen-sized bedroom downstairs en suite. One upstairs bedroom perfect for children - bunk beds and a twin bed, with children's books and games.

The owner's home is located down the hill. Your small boat can tie up to the side of our dock. There is a gazebo on the owner's property that you are welcome to enjoy. You will long remember your peaceful vacation at The Cedar House!

About Barbara Smallwood

We needed a weekend getaway and Grand Lake is perfect. We are here every weekend! We have two properties - our home on the lake and a home behind us, which we built for a guest house for our family. So we are usually around when you rent from us! But we don't invade your privacy!

Barbara Smallwood purchased this house in 2000

Why Barbara Smallwood chose Afton

We built this home because our original 1927 two-bedroom farmhouse had become too small when my son and daughter each married and began having their own families. We also lived in this home while we remodeled our 1927 farmhouse - so it is truly a home and you will feel so comfortable there. We have left personal items there so give it extra charm.

What makes this house unique

Songbirds, the stars at night, the moon glistening off the lake....there is no better way to unwind than a weekend - or week! - at Grand Lake.

Great family house

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at the Cedar House was great! It was perfect for our two families (we had 4 kids total, ages 5-8) The house itself is really nice, and it's well-stocked. The views from the deck are gorgeous. The owners are so nice and accessible for any questions you may have. Our only problem was that the dock is actually a pretty long walk down a steep hill (the house is lake view, not lake front), which is difficult when you're hauling heavy coolers up and down and wrangling kids. But overall, this house is a great family vacation house!

cedar house stay

  • 5 of 5

Thanks so much for letting our family use your home, we had a great time at Grand Lake and using you wonderful porch every night for dinner. Very quiet during the week, it was as if we had the entire lake to ourselves. I'm am sure the weekends are a different story.

Outstanding Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family traveled from the Dallas areas for a week at Cedar House. We were impressed with Cedar House and our family of five and two dogs had a blast. The house has a tremendous view of the lake at any time of the day. It is also very clean and offers all of comforts of home. The dock access for our boat and kids was fantasic. We had the boat on the water for the entire week enjoying tubing, cruising, and even drove over to the dam for an tour and lunch. Diving and sliding off the dock was a lot of fun for everyone. We would highly recommend Cedar House to anyone looking for a relaxing lake vacation.

Very nice house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a long weekend with our 4 adult kids and infant grandson. The house worked well for us, and the dock access was a MAJOR plus! It's a bit of a hike to get down there, but well worth it. Another major plus was being pet friendly so we could bring our dog with us. Unusual for a house rental, the kitchen had lots of leftover staples, which was good, although some of them were not in good condition, and should have been thrown away. We really enjoyed the laid back nature of Grand Lake - much calmer than its peer to the northeast. The owners were very pleasant and helpful.

This house if perfect for a wide variety of guests. We rented the house for just two of us and our small dog, but ended up bringing a good friend and her 80+ year old aunt. The upstairs has two bedrooms and a full bath, the downstairs has the bath with the shower and the Master bedroom with a private bathroom.

The kitchen is well equipped with pans/covered Pyrex an all sorts of utensils and plenty of plates/bowls/cups and serving dishes. Dinning room table is large and comfortable for all.

The floors are beautiful - slate and polished wood. The main deck is covered and well shaded with plenty of chairs to enjoy the view.

Owners are just a call away if you get lost trying to find the property or have any questions.

We celebrated my Dad's 60th birthday at the Cedar House and had a great time. This house is perfect for entertaining, cooking dinners (we love to cook!) and enjoying the outdoors. We comfortably fit 11 people around the dinner table and had more than enough dishes, silverware etc to accommodate everyone. My nephews (7 & 5) loved the bunk beds and swing set and walking down to the dock... very kid friendly. Unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate, we had thunderstorms everyday (but 1!) but we couldn't have picked a better place to be rained in, with the covered porch we could still be outside. When we come back to Grand Lake to visit my family we will stay here, can't wait to be back when it's sunny and hot! Thank you for everything!
