Property Description House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)
This is a vintage 1947 cabin makeover that captures the essence of early McCall and combines it with the flavor of today. A tasteful mix of old with new makes for a delightful summer getaway or winter hideout. A solid wall of glass across the front opens onto a large deck area with stainless steel cable railing that allows for amazing views of the lake and surrounding mountains. Winter sunrises and sunsets paint the mountains in shaded colors that are vividly different to the bold strong ones of summer.
Earthy interior details include a radiant heated floor, a cozy gas fireplace, Mr Steam shower for two, and the original 'combed plywood' kitchen cabinets and wall treatments.
Walk outdoors from the lower covered deck area which opens directly onto the sandy beach just 10' from the water. This deck is perfect for being outside while you watch the kids playing on the beach. Or just gather together for a hand of cards without the sunburn - guaranteed!!
The large upper deck opens from the living room and the views are spectacular. Views of the sunrise and sunset are breathtaking. The colors that spread across the mountains and across the lake are endless. Bring your camera for some great photos.
Bring your own boat and toys, or rent them from Cheap Thrills. The large private dock is perfect! Dine on either of the 2 decks or on the covered side porch.
Furnishings combine the original bamboo period pieces with contempory European ones for the best in comfort. There are 4 bedrooms in the house (2 king beds downstairs, 2 queen beds upstairs). There are 2 twin beds in the detached bunk house (rechristened 'The Boat House,' but with no heat source, it is suitable for summer use only.
The kitchen has new appliances (including a commercial Viking cooktop), a farm sink, and a large butcher block island that seats 6 (great for indoor brunches and light dining). A modern office in the back has DSL wireless, and lots of workspace. There is a Sundance hot tub on the lower deck that seats four. There are 2 flat screen televisions, one in the living room, one in one of the king size bdrms.
The house is located just one mile N on Warren Wagon Road. You can easily boat, bicycle, or hike to town. There is a bike trail a short distance from the house & you can bike from there all the way around the lake or access the many trails in Bear Basin just across the street. Maps are provided in the house. There are great restaurants, several hot springs, and excellent golf courses from which to choose. Winter allows for great snowmobile forays, or if you're inclined to ice-skating, the Manchester Ice Rink is a delight, or better yet, clear a swath of snow from the frozen lake for your own private rink.
Snowboarding and skiing in the winter is only 17 minutes away at Brundage Ski Resort! There are many hot springs nearby, but our favorite is Bergdorf Hot Springs, which is accessible in the winter only by snowmobile (rent some from Cheap Thrills).
