A weekend getaway to a McCall or Valley County vacation rental in Cascade is not one you'll soon forget. Perched on the southeast shore of its namesake lake and between two vast stretches of national forest, charming little Cascade, Idaho is a doorway to outdoor adventure!
Depending on the time of year, you'll see locals' vehicles hauling mountain bikes, kayaks, canoes, snowboards, and snowmobiles - this area is a playground for outdoorsy types. The Payette River flows through the area for whitewater rafting, and Lake Cascade itself stretches for 20 miles, drawing boating enthusiasts in the summer and ice fishermen in the winter. When the snow falls, miles of hiking trails turn to cross-country routes, and the wide open fields are criss-crossed with snowmobile tracks.
And if a few of the family members prefer their vacations to be more relaxing than heart-pounding, don't worry. If a break is needed from lounging on your lakefront cabin deck, Cascade is a charming town, with a handful of shops and cafes to explore during your stay. There are amazing scenic drives in the area, and easy day trips available - perhaps head to the beautiful resort at Tamarack for a round of golf or massage at the spa, or drive up to lively McCall for a day of window shopping, followed by a fresh IPA and elk burgers at Salmon River Brewing. At any time of year, a weekend spent in a cozy Cascade cabin rental will leave you rejuvenated, relaxed—and planning your next getaway.
