Very comfortable 4 bedroom (4th room is bunk room above garage), 2 bathroom Lake House on Cascade lake with private dock, vaulted ceilings, fireplace, new hardwood floors installed, stainless gas BBQ, laundry room, bar, garage, wrap around deck, hot tub, brand new custom rock fire pit and patio, patio furniture, dock lounge recliners, and complete kitchen. All new furniture and a new 60" flat screen TV. The master suite is located upstairs with a king size bed and master bath. Downstairs are two guest rooms which each have queen beds. There is an additional loft above the garage with bunk beds. All linens, towels, kitchen utensils and cookware are also brand new. The house has a professional grade water filtration system (all the houses in this area are on a well water system). Even with the professional grade water filtration system some guests notice a slight smell from the water compared to the water they have at home. As you can see from the reviews most guests do not even notice this. There is lots of parking for your snowmobiles, RV or boat. The boat ramp is less than quarter of a mile away. Ready for your vacation or weekend get-away! We take immaculate care of our house and want tenants who will do the same. If you will not take care of it and treat everything better than your own please do not call. Absolutely No Smoking or Drugs! We have two canoes, two standup paddleboards, two cruiser bikes and fishing poles for you to enjoy!
We just bought two new stand up paddle-boards for you to use!
Also, do you want a new top of the line wakeboard/surf boat, fishing boat, jet skis, side by side utv, or snowmobiles to enjoy while you are there? I have a partnership with Redline Recreational Toys in Donnelly Idaho and can offer you a discount for any toy rental during your stay at the Rudolph Retreat. Reservations for should be made early as rentals can book out and be unavailable. Just let me know!!!
Please note the water level of the lake begins to decrease around the middle of August (this varies each year). Because the water is lower it will be a little muddier and not as clear. It is still a great time to paddleboard, canoe, fish and boat but the water will not be as clear and warm as it is in the summer time. The ramp to the dock will also be much steeper because the water level is lower. Our dock ramp is usually disconnected around the first weekend of September (this can vary depending on water level for the year) to prevent damage from ice in the winter time. After the dock ramp is disconnected you will have to climb down a steep embankment of rocks to get to the dock and water level. You can still use the canoe and paddleboards up until the lake freezes over but you will have to climb down the rocks to get to the water. You will see the rates are much lower in the fall and winter in part because of the limited lake access. The Boulder Creek boat ramp and beach is just a quarter mile south of our house. If you are unable to use the dock at our house in the fall due to water level feel free to enjoy the nice beach and boat ramp at Boulder Creek state park.
Winter Disclaimer: This area receives significant snowfall in the winter time. Our driveway is plowed whenever there is more than 3 to 4 inches of snow. There may still be new snow on the 15 foot pathway to the front door and on top of the hot tub cover. We have a snow shovel next to the hot tub and you may have to shovel the cover off to use the hot tub depending on when you arrive and the last snow storm. The BBQ and Patio furniture is put away around November 1 and returned to the deck around May 1.
We finished a major landscape, walkway and prior project that includes a brand-new larger Trex pier, rock steps to pier, sanding beach area by swing with rock steps up to rock landing where parents can sit.
Sleeps maximum of 12 people.
Weddings are allowed based on owner approval. There is a $2500 wedding fee in addition to the regular booking amount. This covers wear and tear, extra cleanup, and gift cards for our neighbors who have to deal with the noise and traffic.
Traveling by plane or don't have room for groceries? Ask us about our grocery shopping service!! Give us a list of what you want and we will have it all put away in fridge and in kitchen before you arrive!
Just purchased extra large aqua mat!! Sun fun! Tie it to the dock, run and jump on it, try to stand on it or just lounge on it.
