Cozy, upscale townhome close to lake, beaches and mountains
Enjoy a cozy, upscale hangout beside a mountain lake in McCall, Idaho, USA, in the Rocky Mountains. It's your headquarters for myriad outdoor activities. The home is located two blocks from Payette Lake beaches and the marina, a five-minute walk to downtown restaurants and shops, and a short drive to skiing and hiking trails leading to alpine lakes and rivers. It's a quick drive to several golf courses. Art lovers will enjoy colorful folk art and intricate Navajo Indian textiles on display at the home. Bicycles and a paddleboard are available. A car can be included in the swap as well.
McCall is a small, low-key city with a population of 4,300. People love decompressing here. There's lots to do outdoors and enough shopping and dining options to keep most folks happy, including a great sushi restaurant and pubs with outdoor music and lake views.
In the summer, rent a boat and waterski or just chill out on the lake. Bring a picnic to the beaches. Escape to the wilderness for hiking and fishing. Ride mountain bike trails through beautiful evergreen forests (some close enough you ride to them from the garage). There's also world-class kayaking down the Payette River, golf courses, and summer music festivals.
In the winter, Brundage ski area is a 20-minute drive away, and Tamarack ski area is a half hour away. There's lots of cross-country skiing and snowmobiling around town. A regionally famous winter carnival in February features spectacular snow sculptures, dog sled racing, a parade, and general revelry around town. Downtown, there's ice skating, hockey and curling.
McCall Golf Club (https://www.mccallgolfclub.com/) is less than a mile from the townhome. It's a nice, city-run course with challenging holes amid ponderosa pine trees, water hazards, and hills.
Jug Mountain Ranch and MeadowCreek Golf Resort are very good, privately run courses open to the public. Both are within 15-25 minute drives, respectively.
