About the Owner

I am a freelance graphic designer married to a public school superintendent. I started spending the fall and winter months in beautiful McCall, Idaho when my husband's job landed him there in 2008. Now I have the opportunity to spend time in two beautiful locations. I get to enjoy the long days of an Alaskan summer hiking and fishing, and experience those wonderful deep powder days on my snowboard in cental Idaho. With over 30 years of living and traveling in Alaska, I would be happy to answer any questions you might have about your trip here.

No short of spactuarly amazing. The owner was able to answer all questions from car rental to fishing excursions. We are looking forward to returning.

Wonderful time staying at the Mackinaw House!!

We had a wonderful stay at the Mackinaw House! If you are traveling with a few family members and children this is a wonderful place to call home base. The property is gorgeous and the view breath taking. The wildlife we saw while staying at the house was an added treat! A mother moose and her two calves. A mating pair of Sandhill cranes. This is a bird watchers paradise! We were able to enjoy the day and come back and relax. The comfortable bedrooms and clean bathrooms have luxury linens. The kitchen and grill were a nice added money saver on meals for our family of 5 adults and 3 children. A cozy home to enjoy the view!

From the Owner

This property is private and scenic, yet located so close to town. There is a view from every window. The best view is from the hot tub!
