De ruimte
We keep this vacation home clean, sanitary and safe for you and your loved ones.
Lakefront Retreat is located in the private gated community of Bills Island. The island is surrounded by the huge Island Park Reservoir. (You drive on a connecting causeway to access the island.) The Island Park Reservoir was created many years ago by a dam along the Henry's Fork of the Snake River, a world renowned trout fishing river. Swim and fish right off our private dock. (Catch Rainbow trout, Brook trout, Catfish and other fish species--Idaho fishing license needed for adults, not needed for younger children.) Use our boat slip for your own boat or one of the many kinds of watercraft that can be rented only 1/4 mile away. They also rent bicycles, and a water trampoline that can be delivered right to the cabin waterfront. You can also rent ATVs and snowmobiles in Island Park. [You can ride ATV's (and snowmobiles in winter) directly from this cabin onto the local trail system that connects for hundreds of miles and goes all the way to the border of Yellowstone Park! See the winter paragraph below for more winter info.] We provide the following items at the house: one paddle board, one angler's kayak and one children's kayak; with 2 dozen life jackets of various sizes. Additionally, there are two sets of snorkeling gear. There is always deep water in the reservoir right behind this cabin, even in years when water levels may be reduced for the use of farmers downstream. Our west-facing deck borders the water and connects to a floating walkway to the dock and boat slip. The deck is a great place to enjoy beautiful sunsets as you relax and discuss all the amazing possibilities for the days to come. The west entrance of Yellowstone Park is only 32 miles away. Horseback riding, hiking, fishing, and cross-country skiing are available in nearby Harriman State Park. Amazing and powerful Mesa Falls is also a short trip away. An all-day trip to visit Grand Teton National Park is also possible from this home.
This 1700 sq. ft. cabin has been renovated several times, the most recent renovation being the addition of the second bathroom. You'll love the lodge pole features in the living room, which add to the rustic charm. It has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, and sleeps up to 10 people: on three queen size beds, a single/double bunk bed with double pull-out trundle bed, plus a queen size pull-out sleeper couch, a queen size air mattress and a twin futon for the floor. (All bedding, linens and towels are provided.) This property also offers a 35 amp RV hookup at the side of our driveway for an extra $50/night plus tax, which would enable you to bring more people, who would sleep in the RV. (Only 10 are allowed to sleep in the house.) Potable water and a dump station are provided at our RV hookup. The two-car garage is also available for your use.
The living room features a wall of windows with views of the lake in the northwest/west direction, enabling you to enjoy breathtaking summer sunsets and also keep an eye on the kids playing outside. You'll find the kitchen well equipped with modern appliances and everything you need to cook, prepare and serve your meals. This cabin has Chromecast TV (watch from any device) and a DirecTV satellite subscription. Washer and dryer are also provided for your use.

There is a 50,000 BTU propane "fire table" in the side yard with comfortable seating and a view of the lake, for quality family time. (Propane provided.) This partially wooded property offers coolness among trees or sun out on the deck and dock. Views are amazing.

A true Island Park experience is awaiting you at Lakefront Retreat.
If you love outdoor recreation and like a safe community where children can have fun, then you'll be sure to enjoy quality family time at Lakefront Retreat!

Winter at Lakefront Retreat:
If you plan on staying at Lakefront Retreat anytime between between mid-October and mid-May there is usually some degree of snow throughout that period. You could experience this Winter wonderland at its peak between mid-December and the end of March. During the peak of winter, we get 4 to 7 feet of snow in Island Park staying on the ground, and getting mounded high by snow plows on the roadsides. The winter time is truly a beautiful thing! Come prepared with serious snow clothes and snow boots to stay warm and dry. Inside, stay cozy by our propane fireplace! (The cabin also has a good heating system throughout.) Due to all this snow, Island Park is a popular destination for plenty of winter activities including snow shoeing and cross-country skiing at Harriman State Park, and snowmobiling on the 500 miles of groomed trails throughout Island Park and West Yellowstone. In fact, you can snowmobile on snow-packed roads directly from this cabin to connect with the official trail system at our Bill’s Island security gate area. Free maps of the entire trail system are available at gas stations throughout Island Park. You can rent snowmobiles locally or bring your own. There is space to park your vehicles and trailers at the cabin. The west entrance of Yellowstone Park is closed to normal vehicles from mid-November to mid-April, but you can book guided snowmobile and snow coach adventures that take you inside Yellowstone Park, going all the way to Old Faithful geyser, which erupts year-round. (Book trips early. Space is limited.) Ice fishing, on the Island Park Reservoir and Henry’s Lake, is also popular! (Be sure that the lakes are frozen solid and proceed with caution. Snowmobiling on the lakes is illegal and can be dangerous.) In December/January you can enjoy the local Winterfest that includes horse drawn sleigh rides and fireworks, among many other family activities, happening at various times and locations in Island Park every year. (Check with the Island Park Chamber of Commerce for a Winterfest schedule.)
Please note: For safety reasons, due to the large amount of snow, there is no access to two of the side doors of the cabin during winter. You’ll have access to the overhead garage door, the personnel door next to it, and the sliding glass door of the house only. Warning: Be aware of the potential for heavy snow sliding off the garage roof, especially when things warm up above freezing. This is dangerous! Park your vehicles at a safe distance from any roof slopes and don’t venture below them on the ground. Due to the thick ice on the Island Park Reservoir, the floating walkway from the deck to the dock is removed in winter. These are reconnected when the ice has melted fully, usually some time in May.
We consider April our mud season due to melting snow. Watch out for potholes on dirt roads at that time of year. The roads get repaired when things dry out.

Waar je zult verblijven

Island Park, Idaho, Verenigde Staten

Bills Island is a gated community. The public is not allowed onto the island unless they own property there or they are guests of a property owner. Therefore there is little traffic on the island roads.
(You will be provided a code for our lock box at the gate to get the access card that automatically lets you through the gate.)
