Family, friends, laughter, and fun. It’s the perfect combination for a holiday season that’s sure to be magical, but playing the “hostess with the mostest” can take its toll, so why not change up the game plan? I’m talking about enjoying breathtaking views of Idaho’s wilderness, easy access to major ski resorts, and all the fun you can handle. Imagine loading the car with some good eats and your favorite people and arriving at a condo or cabin that is warm, inviting, and packed with amenities.  All you need to do is unlock the door. We teamed up with Vacasa, a vacation rental property management company right here in Idaho, to help you find the perfect winter getaway in Idaho’s beautiful backyard.

This gorgeous home boasts views of the Sun Valley Ski Resort and has room for up to seven people. The spacious three bedroom home, named Apres Skiway, is just a quick two-minute walk to the Sun Valley Resort’s Warm Springs lifts. That’s right, you can walk right to the ski lifts! After a day on the slopes snuggle up with your drink of choice next to the fireplace and relish this wintery wonderland through floor to ceiling windows.

This luxurious log cabin offers amazing scenery and all the modern amenities just minutes from downtown McCall. Bring the whole family for this adventure because the Lake Fork Lodge sleeps eight! Snuggle next to the towering stone fireplace, cook a masterpiece in the gourmet chef’s kitchen, or just relax and enjoy lounging around this spacious home. A short drive will put you in the heart of McCall where you can explore local shops and restaurants like My Father’s Place where the milkshakes are a must – even in the winter!  And as a special bonus, this property has a huge parking area with an extended driveway for snowmobile or ATV trailers.

Strap on your skis to enjoy the Rock Creek Ski-In/Ski-Out Cottage in Tamarack. This hideaway looks like a winter scene straight out of a postcard! Don’t worry about hunting for a parking spot to ski because the path to the Tamarack chairlift is right out the back door. If you’re game for a new adventure, step into Nordic skis or snowshoes and explore the surrounding winter wonderland. When it is time to relax, hop in the hot tub on the deck or play a board game with the family  before crawling into a comfy king size bed.

Vacation rentals are conveniently located near many of Idaho’s attractions and outdoor activities.  For another look at these getaways or others in Idaho, click here.
