Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible Bed(s), 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 4-8)

Awesome 2BR and 2.5BA ski in/out cottage in a picturesque setting. Gorgeous mountain views from every angle -- you can even see a sliver of Lake Cascade from the back patio! Bring the entire family (including the dog!) or leave the kids with the grandparents. The cottage has two queen beds, two sleeper sofas, and a pack-n-play for a baby -- so it sleeps between four (very comfortably) and eight (somewhat comfortably).

This ain't no backwoods cabin. Most all your needs and cravings will be satiated while you're here. Addicted to electronics or work? No worry. We have two Apple computers (an i Mac and a Mac Mini), a 42' flat-screen LED TV, a surround sound stereo system (that plays in almost every room in the cottage), a printer, and thanks to Al Gore, the inter-web. Fortunately, however, all these gadgets are equipped with 'off' switches, so if you feel like decompressing and/or degadgeting (made that word up), you can mold into our tufted leather chair while pretending to read a classic novel, sipping hot apple cider, and listening to our friendly neighborhood woodpecker (we've named him 'Woody'; original, we know). We also have a plethora of relaxation assistance apparatuses: a fireplace (inside), a fire-pit (outside please), a Weber BBQ, a deep soaking tub, a hot tub, DVDs, records, decks of cards, boxes of games, bookshelves of books, and some yoga stuff. The kitchen is also well-equipped to crush your culinary ambitions: dishes, utensils, wine glasses, pots and pans, blender, coffee machine, toaster, microwave, dishwasher, stove-top, oven, and a fridge that blows so cold it makes the Devil himself nervous. Finally, provided you don't sue us if you hurt yourself, you're welcome to use some of our outdoor toys: various sleds and three sets of cross country skis.

Tamarack, despite its financial complications, still has lots to offer. The ski hill is no joke, boasting bodacious off-piste runs to easy-riding groomed runs. And the Buttercup Lift (a mid-mountain access lift) is just a few turns off the patio. True ski in and out! (However, please note the Buttercup lift is only operational limited hours and if there is enough snow.) The mountain also has miles and miles of scenic, quiet, and well-maintained hiking, cross country skiing, and mountain biking trails (the trail-head to our favorite mountain biking trail starts at the end of our street; our favorite cross country ski trails are on the other side of the resort). Tamarack also offers a world-class golf course, a Frisbee golf course, a zip-line course, a gym, a steam room, an outdoor pool (summer only) and hot tub, various restaurants (Seven Devils and Canoe Grill in the winter and Morels in the summer but often no restaurant service in the spring and fall), and quick access to all Lake Cascade has to offer (boating, jet-skiing, kayaking, etc.).

(One thing to note is that the dishwasher works but the alignment is slightly off. These dishwashers are not of the highest quality but we apologize because they were so specific to Tamrack when everything was built that it is nearly impossible to get it replaced. The dishwasher cleans great but is small.)

Lastly, this cottage has a key-less entry system, so you'll have direct access to without having to check in or pick up a key. We'll also leave our keys to the Osprey Meadows Lodge, so you can access the gym, steam rooms, pool, and hot tub.

Check-in is at 4 pm and check-out is 11 am. However, we are flexible if there is not a booking right before your visit or after... just ask.

We hope you enjoy our cottage as much as we do!

P.S. The cottage supplies a high chair and pack-n-play so those are two less things to worry about bringing from home for the little ones.

****PLEASE NOTE***** With new Tamarack owners running the resort, the Lodge with the gym and outdoor pool, Morel's restaurant, and golf course are not operational. We hope that will change in the future and apologize for any inconvenience.

Great cabin, perfect location for ski in ski out

  • 5 of 5

Cabin worked great for us , family of five plus my infant granddaughter, ski right out the back deck, down to the buttercup lift which runs on weekends to access the ski area, we skied the last day of the year and had a great time. Cabin is in great condition and had plenty of room for five adults. Don't forget to check out Gold Fork hot springs during your stay. Hope to be back soon.

Fun relaxing weekend

  • 4 of 5

We had a fun, relaxing weekend. The weather was stormy but we were comfortable. We sat and watched the rain fall as we played family games. We used the hot tub one night which was very enjoyable. It was close to McCall so we could run to town and eat at our favorite restaurants. Then it was back to the cabin to relax. Our only complaint was the difficulty of using the television and the sound system. We could not get the sound to work.

We had a great time

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 8 had a great time. The kids all bunked upstairs and the adults stayed downstairs. Buttercup chair lift (right out the back door) wasn't operating during the weekdays, as expected, but we were able to ski all the way home at the end of the day, which everyone thought was pretty awesome.

The description of the place was pretty much spot on.

Nits: The refrigerator maybe has a slight condensation issue and we could've used another pillow & blanket, but it certainly didn't detract from our stay.

Side note: We completed the 550 piece puzzle but it was really "just" a 543 piece puzzle. LOL.

We had a great time. It was just what we needed. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves
