FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q) Is the guest house included? Will it be rented to other guests while we are there?

A) The Shasta Suites sleeps 8 and has one bathroom. It is included with the Cabin and is never rented separately.

Q) What is your cancellation policy?

A) As a general rule, reservations cannot be canceled. Depending on time frame and circumstance, owner is willing to accommodate on a case by case basis. Please reach out.

Q) In August how low does the lake get?

A) When the lake is full it has an elevation of 4828 feet. In 2022, it was fullest on June, at 4827.44 feet. On July 19th 2022, it was at 4824.34 feet.

The closest boat ramp to us is at the Donnelly City Park which has an end of ramp elevation of 4817 feet. At the end of August and in September we use the ramp at Rainbow Point, 4814 feet, or the ramp at Poison Creek, 4812 feet.

All of this information and more than you will ever want to know can be found at the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation's website.

Q) Is it ok to beach or anchor our boat in front of the cabin?

A) Absolutely. Not only is the beach kid friendly but it's also boat friendly, with a smooth, sandy, gentle slope. We have a permitted mooring buoy. Normally we beach our boat during the days and keep it attached to the mooring buoy during the nights.

We learned that it is not a good idea to drive the boat up onto the beach. Instead, you should cut the engine and glide onto the beach. Our inboard/outboard has a cooling system for the engine that sucks water into a network of tubing with the intake near the propeller. Because our beach is entirely made of very fine white silver sand, over time the sand in the engine created unnecessary maintenance problems.

Now, when beaching the boat, we drive toward the beach then, about ten or twenty yards out, we cut the engine and raise the prop out of the water as we glide in. Conversely, when leaving the beach, we push the boat out and lower the prop when it's about ten yards out before starting the engine.

Q) Are there any rules about using the beach or surrounding waterfront?

A) On Lake Cascade the beaches are public. Of course, as a guest at the cabin, you have direct access to the beach. If you are not staying at the cabin, but at another lot in the interior, you cannot trespass on the lakefront lots to get to the beach. You can legally get to any beach by boat or by land using an access lot. There are a couple of such access lots nearby to the north and to the south of us. We pay a membership to help maintain the one to the south. It has picnic tables, a fire pit, etc. and a beach.

Q) What would be the closest boat launch?

A) That would be the Donnelly City Park which is one mile or three minutes.

Late in the season when the water is low we sometimes use Rainbow Point. It is on the other side of the lake and is 5.6 miles or twelve minutes. Rainbow Point is only two miles by boat, however.

We sometimes use, but only at extremely low water, Poison Creek which is 8.2 miles or 17 minutes. It is the campground closest to the Tamarack Resort on the other side of the lake and to the south of us.

Q) Is there enough room for parking a boat trailer, snowmobile trailer, motorcycle trailer, etc.?

A) Yes. There should be ample parking. We put in a circle drive in the fall of 2019!

Q) Are kids ok?

A) Absolutely. The cabin was made for kids of all ages.

Q) Can we invite our friends up?

A) You are welcome to have up to a total of 12 people on the property.

Q) What are the rules?

A) Just the usual rules. You and all guests must obey all laws. Smoking anywhere on the premises is prohibited. You are responsible for any damage that occurs during your stay. Be sensitive to the neighbors after the sun goes down. Suggested quiet hours are 10pm-7am. No on street parking.

Q) Where can you rent boats?

A) We highly recommend Mountain Meadow Adventure rentals. They are a 9 minute drive from the cabin (4 minutes on the lake) on the way to Tamarack. It is a family business and Ben and Rachel are super nice. If they are not busy they will bring the boat/jet ski right to the cabin's beach!

Q) Is there a barbecue grill available?

A) Yes. We have a standard sized propane BBQ grill available for use on the deck.

Q) Are there enough pots and pans for a large family or do we have to bring our own?

A) The kitchen is fully equipped. If you have some specialty items or need to use an extra large pot, you may want to bring a few things of your own from home, but we have everything you normally need waiting for you in the cabin.

Q) Do you have life jackets we can use?

A) You will need to bring your own life jackets.

Q) Can we have an early check-in and/or a late check-out?

A) Let us know if you need or want to have extra time before or after the usual 11 a.m. check-out and 4 p.m. check-in time. When we can accommodate you, we will. It all depends on our housekeepers and how tightly our reservations are scheduled.

Guests have full access to the Main Cabin and the Shasta Suites.

I am always available by cell phone if you need anything. I live in Eagle, about 94 mi away.
*Lake Cascade is a reservoir used for irrigation. The lake level varies during the year. At high water, the beaches around the lake are covered or nearly covered by water. At low water, the beaches are large and the lake is small and shallow.
Located in Donnelly, this cabin is on the beach. Boise National Forest and Ponderosa State Park reflect the area's natural beauty and area attractions include Activity Barn and McPaws Thrift Store. Traveling with kids? Consider Mountain Monet and Manchester Ice & Event Center.
