Butler's Lakefront Log Cabin offers you a quiet and private custom-built log cabin near Ashton and St. Anthony, Idaho. We have only one rental cabin and it's yours to enjoy, secluded in a lush woodland with water on three sides. Come for a weekend or stay longer. There's lots to do, or simply relax and do nothing. Fish for trout. Explore the mile-long lake by canoe, kayak or paddle boat. Walk in the woods among aspens, cedars and wildflowers. Watch for moose, elk, deer, beaver, otter and waterfowl. Walk to the top of a sand dune and watch the sun rise over the Grand Teton and set on the desert.

Description:
You'll find all the comforts in this elegant, rustic cabin: carpet, slate tile, two private bedrooms with queen-size beds, a spacious loft with two more queen-size beds, two full baths, wood stove on river rock hearth, leather couches, sitting area in loft with entertainment center, fully-equipped kitchen, laundry, deck with table and grill, and even a stereo and a TV with VCR, DVD and satellite. Windows on three sides open to views of the lake.

Visit us all four seasons.
