Idlewood Cabin

5 Bedroom(s)       3 Bathroom(s)       Sleeps 15       Add to favorites

This stunning 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom home is located in the Edelweiss Gated Community, at Boyne Mountain. Sitting in the highest neighborhood on the resort, this home offers privacy, stunning views, and all the luxuries one could want on their next vacation. This cabin is truly Ski In Ski Out and sits right on the Helga's Hideaway ski run and is served by the Alpine Chair Lift. You can ski directly to the Alpine Lift, Disciples Ridge Lift and Disciples II Lift from this home. This is important because the Alpine and Disciples II lift do not run all day every weekday.

The locker room has 8 built in lockers for ski apparel and hanging racks for skis gear. The locker room is crafted with custom carpentry and has an alpine charm to it.

Upon entering the home you will find an expansive living area centered around a classic stone fireplace with a new high end 65 inch TV, featuring a Roku Ultra. The kitchen is a gourmet chef's kitchen, and is part of the expansive living area, where you will also find dining for up to 12 people. The master bedroom is also located on the main floor and features a king size bed with deluxe ensuite for your convenience. Guest bedroom 1 and 2, also located on the main floor, each offer a queen bed, with a shared 2nd full bathroom.

Downstairs, in the lower level you will be greeted by another stunning stone fireplace and 2nd living room or family room. The family room offers a sleeper sofa that can sleep two guests. For your added convenience and fun, not only is there the custom built ski locker room, but also a foosball gaming area, connected to a bunk room that offers a TwinXL over queen bunk- perfect for all the kids to "bunk up" and have their own space and time. The 5th and final bedroom, also located downstairs, shares a full bathroom with the bunk room and it also offers four(4) twin beds.

Guest Reviews of idlewood cabin

Boyne Falls , MI

Perfect location

Review by Kyle B.
We stay at Boyne for a week ever year in February, and have stayed at multiple houses. We could not have picked a better place. We will definitely be staying there again.
5 out of 5 stars
Manager Response:
Hi Kyle, Thank you for the positive review! We are thrilled you had a wonderful stay with us and we look forward to seeing you again soon. Sincerely, The Staff at Northern Michigan Escapes

Just the Kind of Up North Cabin Feel and Comfort, Loved It!!

We loved the feel of the home as soon as we walked in. Fireplaces, blankets, comfy beds, private views to the woods, outdoor fire pit with plenty of wood available, it was wonderful! Hot tub worked great under the stars and we loved the ski in/out locker room for all the wet stuff to dry. Made our family dinners in the well stocked kitchen and played the family games in the dining area. And even though cold, took a blanket on the screened porch to watch the skiers as they sailed by with the snow covered pines and trees all around. Parking for 3-4 outside and 1 inside, but a 4 wheel drive is a good idea. Ski out is fantastic. After the back side lifts close, it is not an easy trek back from the main lift to ski in, maybe the new fast lift will be easier in 2023, we’ll find out since we booked already for next year. Well done!

Hi Karin, Thank you for your review. It looks like you had a wonderful time and we look forward to your return! Sincerely, The Staff at Northern Michigan Escapes

Exceeded all expectations

The home was beautiful and well appointed. We had everything we needed and more. The hot tub was a great addition. Ski in/Ski out locale is fantastic if that side of the mountain is open. Plentiful parking and storage. The home was absolutely perfect for our four family New Year's vacation. We'd definitely stay again.

Great for family gathering

Review by Marlene C.
We chose this property in part due to its central location for our travelers. It was perfect for our family Thanksgiving with plenty of space to spread out and allowing for both indoor and outdoor activities. Highly recommend!

Family retreat

Review by lorrie S.
This was our 8th year at Idlewood. It almost feels like home. This was the first year with the new ownership and there are some nice improvements. The hot tub was very enjoyable, and the fireplace in the main room was a nice surprise. My only suggestion is you definitely need to allow more towels. One towel per person for 5 days meant I was doing laundry often. We love our yearly retreat to Idlewood. There is so much to do and we enjoy the area.
5 out of 5 stars
Manager Response:
Hi Lorrie, Thank you for the positive review! We are thrilled you consider our property like a second home! We apologize for the lack of towels and would have gladly assisted you with that. You would just contact the Property Manager in the future for anything you may need. We look forward to seeing you again for your next retreat! Sincerely, The Staff at Northern Michigan Escapes

Family Vacation

Our family had a great vacation staying at this home. It was spacious and the perfect size for our family. All the furnishings were comfy and the layout was great. We especially enjoyed the screened in porch and firepit. We also loved the location taking in the local sites in town and the area-golfing, hiking, and beach.

50th Wedding Trip with Family

Review by Carol K.
My husband and I didn't want a 50th wedding anniversary party but instead spend time with our children and grandchildren who live out of states. EVERYONE loved it. The home was very nice and spacious for the 6 adults, 3 children, and 2 dogs. We could go on hikes, have a campfire and room to all eat together. This was definitely a 5 star rating. We enjoyed this during the summer.

Great Ski In/Ski Out for Large Families

Review by Steve P.
This is our second year renting and it's a prime spot for big families and skiers. Plenty of room, clean, high end. Well outfitted, except make sure to bring your own small, flat coffee filters and napkins. Great overall stay.

Perfect Winter Getaway

Review by Shayna L.
We have stayed at this beautiful home two times this year. The home worked perfectly for our 2 families with all of the kids sleeping in the basement. Being able to ski in and ski out so easily made this our best ski vacation yet! We hope to come back again soon!

Great ski house on the mountain

Review by Scott K.
We had two families, 4 adults and 5 kids. the house is a great location! the ski-up ski room in the walkout basement is huge, prior to this we always had ski gear laying all over the house. The natural wood fireplaces on both levels is a great touch.
5 out of 5 stars
Manager Response:
Scott, We at Northern Michigan Escapes are so pleased that we could play a small part in your families vacation. I couldn't describe this home much better than you did. It is perfect for a group your size, especially the ski room. We look forward to working with you again during your next trip to Northern Michigan. Staff of Northern Michigan Escapes
