    Pia S from Ketchum, ID recommends this vacation rental

    This is a wonderful, funky, rustic (but not in a bad way) cabin that occupies a quiet, peaceful perch above the South Fork of the Payette. It was perfect for our family of three and offered us a perfect base for kayaking and enjoying Garden Valley, Crouch, and Banks. Cabin does get hot during day but cooled off at night with fans. Would absolutely stay here again. Only suggestion would be for housecleaning to do a more thorough job in the bathrooms prior to guests checking in. Otherwise, no complaints at all.

    Perfect and Peaceful. Everything went smoothly from the first call to Valerie re the cabin until we reluctantly packed up and went home. A well greased rental group. The cabin was rustic (we were pleasantly surprised) but clean, comfortable, quiet, and close to towns. One of the gals even booked the cabin for a family weekend after seeing how Perfect it would be for them. The deck was a plus with a FANTASTIC view of the river. We loved watching the ducks float down the river and the birds songs. I am definitely going again.

    Sitting on the back deck listening to the river and all of the birds. This place is so peaceful. It had everything we needed and was a very nice cabin. We even saw two deer in the yard one morning and an elk swimming across the river that evening. We will definitely be going back.

    Thomas H from Mountain Home, ID recommends this vacation rental

    This cabin is quite comfortable, if a little rustic. But that's what cabins are supposed to be, right? The switchback path to the river is easy enough, and there's a trail going up river a ways. Didn't catch any fish, but the river was roaring. Saw some critters in the scenic view across the river and deer in the pasture. We had a good long weekend.

    a guest from Nampa, Idaho recommends this vacation rental

    The cabin and view was great. Cabin was neat and clean (except the food left in the fridge). It was definitely hot in August, but we were prepared and closed the blinds during the day and opened windows and doors at night (no AC) put it around min 70s. Overall, we had a great time relaxing at this cabin. However, we were very disappointed about the property maintenance. Many of the light bulbs were burnt out or they were completely removed from the sockets. Mgmt covered costs for us to replace them. One of the blinds kept falling, the patio door latch for the lock was found on the floor, a patio chair was broken, the bottom shelf in the fridge was cracked, and we found a dead bug (wasp or moth?) in the bed which could have died after they made the bed, but it didn't look recent. Most of the maintenance should have been found by housekeeping when they cleaned (windows and fridge). Our biggest disappointment was the inability to use the washer. It was so clogged that a medium load took 4 hours to wash (I put my soap in first or I would have stopped it). This tells me linens are washed offsite. Mgmt said they would look at these issues (no complaints with working with them) but it was too late for our stay.
    We would love to come back to this cabin, but I'm not sure if we will due to lack of maintenance.

    The view was too die for. The company reacted to take care of problems. Bee's were a problem but if you cannot handle that then don't get a cabin. Not exactly secluded but it is not in a city either. It was concerning to find dirty laundry in the closets.....

    Our stay was short but the cabin was great. Had a little trouble finding utensils to clean dishes with. There were very few left-over cooking spices, etc. in the kitchen (or at least we couldn't find any), so be sure to buy/bring your own if you stay here. Overall very comfortable and views were great. Highly recommend rafting the local Payette River - it was a blast!

    Rick H from Boise, ID recommends this vacation rental

    Overall we enjoyed our stay very much. The location is great with fantastic views of the river. My only suggestion would be to have the location a little cleaner prior to guest arrival. Since we were charged for cleaning in advance, we figured it would have been left in better condition. One of the drawers in the fridge had something spilled, there was a rolled up pair of socks on the floor of one of the bedrooms left behind from a prior guests. There were many cobwebs in many of the corners, not hard to see if you look. Windows need to be cleaned as well. We understand this is an older property, and having it weathered to some degree is to be expected, just more attention to the details. Only other thing to consider is that there is no AC. We were able to get it to cool off pretty good in the evenings, but gets pretty stuffy during the day if it's warm outside- we did know this going in though. We would consider renting this property again in a cooler month of the year.

    The cabin was in a wonderful spot with beautiful view of the river from the back deck and a path that leads down to the river. Great fire pit out front and comfortable bedrooms. Screen door to deck is old and doesn't close all the way and a couple of wasps came in.We saw deer and cranes every evening in the field in front of the house and while I was enjoying my morning reading on the back deck on morning was visited by 2 does and 2 fawns right up at the deck! We did bring our own TV up to watch movies at night as the one in the cabin is really small (DVD player is included with the cabin) but other than that it was great! Everyone had such a good time!

    Deanna F from Boise, ID does not recommend this vacation rental.

    Cabin location was absolutely beautiful and indeed "perfect". The temperature was very hot when we arrived so we wanted to open windows and patio door to circulate air... however, the patio glass door was stuck and we could not open it the first night. Next day a maintenance man arrived and dislodged it.
    The windows were very dirty and so much so it almost interfered with the lovely view. There was no hot water for washing dishes or taking showers. There was a dead bird on the roof and a big smudge where he had hit and left feathers on the window. Pots and pans were very bad... old and not clean in appearance... some of spoons and knives did not look clean either. No selections of videos, but that was ok... who wants to watch a video in that lovely setting anyway? There were some good books to read on the bookshelves. Overall, cabin location excellent, cabin amenities were poor. Thanks for the memories, they were wonderful with our grand girls. D & B France

    • Manager Responded on 7/22/2013

      It has been extremely hot and we are all suffering -- this kind of heat is not normal for our area. There is a latch on the door that was not released. We do live in the mountains and cannot estimate at what time or what day a dead bird may appear and fly into the windows....very sad, but true. this cabin is rustic and well used and is advertised as such. Hot water worked day before arrival and when housekeeping came in, so a simple call to our after-hours numbers or perhaps mentioning it to the maintenance man when he was there would probably have resolved the problem you were having. We're glad you have many wonderful memories to take with you!

    a guest from Twin Falls, ID recommends this vacation rental

    We stayed with our children ages 5, 3, and 6 months. Overall we had a very pleasant stay. However, there were a just couple of things I wish I'd realized prior to our trip:
    1- The kitchen is downstairs & dining upstairs. It was a bit of a pain. Also, the master suite is upstairs and other 2 bedrooms downstairs. We tried several arrangements, but no matter what we did, I ended up trekking up and down the stairs several times a night to meet the kids needs.
    2- The carpet in the living area was gross. I didn't dare put my baby down on it.
    3- The water had a very strong iron taste. It was too much for me and I ended up buying water from the local store.
    4- The neighbor's houses are closer than I expected, but we hardly saw anyone and those we did see were very friendly.
    5- Don't use google maps to try to find Idaho Cabin Keepers or you'll never get there. We ended up having to ask the locals.

    Aside from that we had a great time:
    1- The cabin is the perfect distance from the water. We had the GORGEOUS view, but it wasn't like the kids were going to wander out the door & fall in the river. No safety concerns at all.
    2- The cabin was perfectly well stocked and comfortable. Clean except for a few dead wasps and the old, gross carpet. Beds were very comfortable.
    3- We found plenty to do. We saw lots of wildlife right from the cabin. The kids were happy just to walk around picking wildflowers. We found a nearby natural hotspring and did some fishing. It was the perfect relaxed, unplugged vacation.

    • Manager Responded on 7/8/2012

      The natural spring water that all homes up here have access too includes many minerals, including iron. Some properties have stronger mineral content than others. It will not hurt you, is potable and that is what you get in the mountains. We make it very clear in all our information that we send, that GPS, Google, etc. do NOT work up here in the mountains. We provide directions with each booking, as well as directions to where to find a printable map on our website. We cannot reiiterate this enough! We want you to arrive here and enjoy your stay, not wander the mountains for hours!

    My husband and I and our two children had an amazing getaway at this cabin. The wildlife showed itself each day we were there with elk and deer and a beautiful view of the river. We enjoyed hiking, mountain biking, fishing, swimming and golfing. Something to do for everyone in the family. My only recommendation is to turn the land line phones on silent. We had a couple of early morning calls from telemarketers. Great place to visit, we will be back!

    has a very rusty smell when taking a shower or washing your hands.

    • Manager Responded on 7/30/2011

      We live in an area where there are a lot of minerals in the water. Sometimes you can smell the sulphur inthe water, but it is harmless and safe to drink. Some people are more sensitive to the minerals and may want to bring their own drinking water. This is not true in all or our properties, so if you have sensitivity, please contact us and we can advise you on the best cabins for this issue. Thank you.

    This cabin was a great little get-away for the weekend. Great location right on the river and lived up to its name, Perfect Peace. A little confusion w/ the cabin instructions on how to operate, clean-up, etc....the owner's have instructions posted inside the cabin and the management company also provides instructions, many of which differ from each other! Maybe a little clarification would be nice, but don't let that affect your decision to stay here. It is a great spot.

    We would have loved our stay more in cooler weather. It would have been fun to use the barbecue grill out on the large deck overlooking the river but it was too hot before sundown and too many mosquitos after sun down. There could be a couple more fans so that each room had one. We really enjoyed watching the humming birds and the large view over the river. August is not the best time for this cabin without air conditioning.
