Vacationing in Idaho is unlike any other experience in the world. Think of it this way, how often does someone mention that they're going to rent a cabin in Idaho for the summer? Unless you happen to live in Idaho, it never happens. However, this is the fault of the public, not the fault of Idaho. This state offers nothing more than pristine lakes, majestic white-capped mountains and adventure opportunities at almost every turn. The key is to keep Idaho beautiful by not letting the secret out. If a serene environment like Idaho appeals to you, then you should look to spend time there. We'll cover several areas that are great options for vacationing as well as living full time.
If you want to live here full time, look for apartments for rent in Pocatello. The best thing about apartments in Pocatello is that these complexes usually offer manicured gardens, impeccable cleanliness and balconies. If you desire a heated pool, look at Fairway Village. If you want to be close to the ISU campus, consider Hillside Village.
If you're interested in mobile homes to rent in Idaho and you love skiing, then look at Sun Valley. You won't only have many ski options, but you will also have hiking and horseback riding in the summer. Most mobile homes for rent in Sun Valley also come with a balcony.
The best lake house rentals in Idaho can be found outside of Yellowstone National Park and Bear Lake National Wildlife Refuge. The reason here is obvious, which is natural beauty. Cabin rentals here are also a great option, which is covered more in detail below.
If you're interested in condo rentals in Idaho, consider Sandpoint. Think of Sandpoint as the Vail of Idaho. From your rented condo, you can enjoy mountain and lake views from a private hot tub. During the day, you can hit the slopes. In the summertime, you can explore the wilderness by foot.
If you're moving to Idaho with family, look at houses for rent in Boise. The homes here are spacious, the schools are excellent and you will be close to the Boise River as well as restaurants, stores as well as various forms of entertainment.
Now let's look at cabin rentals. We'll begin in McCall. If you're going to look here, then there's only one way to go, which are cabin rentals on the Payette River. Almost every cabin here is rustic in style. You should expect to find a fireplace, a balcony and a lot of natural light. The average size for a McCall cabin rental is 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. While this doesn't sound very large, many of these cabins can hold up to 17 people. The best parts about cabins in this area are easy access to the river, relaxing on the porch and the chance of spotting a bear rummaging through the garbage at night. You will also have mountain views.
Cabin rentals in Coeur d'Alene are completely different. These cabins are more modern, more spacious and a little more expensive. The average size for a Coeur d'Alene cabin rental is 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. However, a cabin of this size can usually hold between 15 and 18 people. In most cases, kids are allowed, which is an added benefit. Most cabin rentals here are fully furnished and come with a full kitchen. Almost all Coeur d'Alene cabin rentals are within walking distance to restaurants, shops and Tubbs Hill. Other amenities you might find are a porch with rocking chairs, beach towels and 24-hour maintenance. It's also important to note that Coeur d'Alene cabins are between 1,000 and 2,000 square feet. This should give you a good idea of how comfortable everyone will be if planning a large friend or family vacation.
Let's move to Island Park, which is the ultimate Idaho cabin rental experience. Here you can find cabins that are 6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, over 4,000 square feet and yet still affordable. Since these cabins can often sleep up to 22 people, cost shouldn't be an issue. With that much space in the cabin, you will have plenty of room to roam and your cost per person will be minimal. Speaking of space, you will love the outdoors. Not only should you find 2 to 3 acres of private property outside your door, but there's also a good chance you will be within walking distance to the Island Park Reservoir. Boating and fishing are popular activities on the reservoir. If you prefer land-based activities, consider hiking, snowmobiling or riding an all-terrain vehicle. As far as interior cabin features, many cabins in this area come with a pool table, a foosball table, a stone fireplace and full kitchens with granite countertops. There's also a decent chance you will have an 8 to 10-person hot tub to enjoy. A final yet extremely important note is that Island Park is less than 30 miles from Yellowstone National Park, making it the perfect place to stay if you're planning a visit to the most beautiful park in America.
