About Gary Freeman
We have been enjoying this area since before we were married. (That was shortly after the crust of the earth had cooled according to our children. . .) We have another cabin just two doors down (also for rent on VRBO) where we have been coming for a respite from the world for over 30 years. We have lived in the Timbuktu region of west Africa (Mali), Mississippi, Texas, Utah, Idaho and Arizona. This is our favorite spot out of all the places we have lived or visited.
Gary Freeman purchased this Cabin in 2011
Why Gary Freeman chose Mountain Home
We love this part of Idaho. It's out of the way and most people don't even know it exists, but you can still get to Sun Valley or Boise in a couple of hours. There are all types of recreation and truly stunning mountain vistas. The lakes and river give us many choices for fun and recreation. After living in or visiting many parts of the world, this is the place we chose to call home.
What makes this Cabin unique
We have set the cabin up with themed rooms and have named them. The main living area is the Four Seasons Retreat, the master bedroom is the Serenity Mountain, the family area is Native Voices, the second bedroom is Bohemian Wanderings and the loft sleeping area is called Wilderness Dreams. The two bedrooms have queen beds while the second bedroom also has a twin bed. Wilderness Dreams has three double beds and there are three hide-a-beds in the Native Voices area - one is a king, one is a queen and one is a twin.

Majestic Cabin in Featherville
The Location of Cabin was Great, only 13 miles from the lake dock... by a nearby Bridge in which the fishing of some sweet trout was caught, and close by a small store and cafe if any necessary items were needed. The towns people were incredible pleasant. The cabin photos displayed were accurate, and the floor-plan very functional for a large gathering. The owners were very helpful and even brought a plate of cookies that were delicious. The main issues we had there was there is entirely too much stuff in the closets and on the counters, not leaving any room for our food or belongings. They stated the water pressure goes on and off, when actually the plumbing system was out and we weren't able to take showers, do dishes, and toilet flushing was used w/buckets much of the time, and no compensation for this inconvenience was reimbursed. When the plumbing is fixed, i would recommend this cabin, fair price, great people, good location, lots of parking, and a CLOSED in deck for pets and smaller Children!!!!! And my mom in law's loved the Large Deck for her coffee in morning and later in day, happy hour!!! The outside grill was terrific, too.
We did have water problems while our guests were here and have taken action to remedy that situation. We have issued a partial refund to make up for their inconvenience due to the water problems and they seemed happy with the refund. We had been discussing what to do for a refund but hadn't taken the time to make a decision since we have been working to prepare for the Trinity Ridge forest fire. The backfire was started right behind the cabin. (It's still very pretty here so don't let the fire scare you away!!!) The fire started while these guests were here and we had been on notice that we could have to evacuate with very short notice for the entire week after they left. Thus we had been extremely busy trying to get everything fire ready before the fire arrived at our cabin.
This cabin is our home that we rent for families to come to the mountains to make memories. Thus we do have things in some of the cupboards and closets. We have half of the closet in the master bedroom for guests and have several kitchen cupboards for guest to use while they are here. We also have all of the drawers in the master bedroom and two dressers in the upstairs area are also available for our guests to use. When we talked with the guests they indicated that they had not noticed the drawer space was available for use. We have cleaned off the counters and will make more cupboard space for our guests to use when they are here.
This cabin is our favorite place to be and we love it here. We rent this cabin so others can have that same same experience with their families & friends! Note that even though they mentioned the water shortage & the space that they still loved both the location and the cabin!
Outstanding Cabin rental!
We had a tremendous stay in the cabin in Featherville, Idaho. The cabin was beautiful and clean and very well decorated. We enjoyed our time there with family for a family reunion. The landscape is gorgeous, the hot springs amazing. It is a beautiful place to escape from the cares of the world. I would highly recommend staying in this fabulous cabin. There were no unwanted surprises. Everything was exceptional. Thank you!
Thanks! We can't wait until you can come stay with us again!
We stayed recently for the 4th of July weekend.
We had a blast.
The cabin was larger than it looked on the internet. We had a very large group so this was better than expected. With 5 beds and 3 hide-a-ways we had room for everyone. The large deck also accommodated a few who wanted quiet from those snoring. Each family took a turn at meal prep, and there were plenty of dishes and tools to meet each unique need. A grill was available on the deck.
We enjoyed the deck and the coolness of the cabin during the hot days, and the fire-pit in the evenings. There were plenty of spaces to spread out so we didn’t feel crowded.
The Boise River is right at the cabin, with several places to access it. It was running low and we were able to canoe for several short trips, giving every family member time on the river. The reservoir was 10 miles away, so close enough. There was a couple of hot springs near-by that were great for ending the evenings in. We also brought ATV’s. There were plenty of places to see on them. The main road doesn’t have a shoulder, but traffic was light and polite so that I enjoyed a bike ride in the morning. A nice quiet golf course is just a mile away.
Our hosts Gary and Denise are very gracious. We were greeted with cupcakes after our 7 hour drive, a very thoughtful gift. If you have a need they are happy to address it, from more dishes to help with tools for a disabled tire.
I would very much recommend this cabin and its owners for a relaxing or activity filled retreat. I hope to visit again as well.
There is a restaurant just down the road (about 200 yards) along with a small store (they have great pizza) and a saloon. There is also a store and gas station in Pine along with another restaurant and bar.
