Remote, Rustic, Romantic Cabin In The Mountains

Remote, Rustic, Romantic Cabin In The Mountains
The Cabin: It is a rustic, romantic small cabin with large wrap-around deck nestled in the pine trees near a small pond, 8.2 miles to the Capitol Building in Downtown Boise. Built in the summer and fall of 2005 as an agricultural structure to support a native seed and tree operation. It has rarely been rented. Beautiful heritage fruit orchards are within walking distance. You may see elk, deer, wild turkeys, quail, other wildlife, and I recently saw evidence of a bear. Some say cougars are in the area, too, but I have never seen one.
You will not see another vehicle or structure from this property. A non-intrusive caretaker is near, but not on the property.

This is not a traditional offering: The cabin has a serene ambiance, with a view, under the pines, a BBQ pit for cooking, a full kitchen and also wood stove for heating & cooking; solar for lighting, 2 baths, shower; water from a spring and a separate bedroom for 2, a sleeping loft for two and a sofa for 1. 

Off grid: Solar power; water from a spring. About 10 degrees cooler than Boise, and above the inversions. 4-night minimum. 20% discount if arrival by bicycle, cross country skis, snow shoes or on foot; available March 12, 2014. A well socialized dog is OK. Cats, not so much.

Everything is clean: deck, towels, pots & pans, dishes, floor and furniture. Bottled water, basic food condiments, flashlights and candles are provided. There is a BBQ on the deck and fire pit, a wood-burning stove, a bookcase, and games. 

Weather: From November to March, you can expect snow. Today, December 9th, there is 4 inches). The elevation of ~ 4,600 feet usually puts you above the Boise inversions, which can be depressing. Expect 10-15 degrees lower than forecast for Boise. Parking: very limited; bring no more than one vehicle. No motorcycles, ATVs. Reliable (mostly) Cingular cell phone service is usually available. 

Driving distance from the Capitol Building in downtown Boise to Cabin is about 8.2 miles. It is not a good road. Driving time is about 20 minutes. You could also arrive by bicycle or hike (everyday many bike or jog to the nearby summit from Boise.
