About Dan Poole
We were born and raised in northern Idaho and both graduated from the U of I. 35 years ago, our first Christmas away from home as newly weds, we rented a cabin in the cove and we have been coming back since then. We bought this land and a very rustic cabin in 1999 and decided to rebuild in 2009. The knotty pine paneling in the great room of the new cabin was lovingly reclaimed from the original 1940s cabin.
Dan Poole purchased this Cabin in 2009
Why Dan Poole chose McCall
We love the cove because of its strong, welcoming community and 1950s neighborly values. Our children learned their love and respect for the lake and its fagile ecosystem and made life-long friends of all ages here. Both daughters celebrated their marriages here and both extracted spousal commitments for frequent returns. For our family this is paradise.
What makes this Cabin unique
Our cabin is located on the east side of Payette Lake, in Pilgrim’s Cove. Anyone who has ever stayed on the east side of the lake knows that is offers the benefits of fewer boats and smoother water than the other side of the lake. In the winter it offers the opportunity to experience long hours of silence.

This property and its owners combined to make the stay an incredibly memorable one. Despite early in the season (and a faulty fuel pump on our boat) the weather was great and the home is beautifully situated on the lake with incredible views. The expansive home and many rooms made for a great base for our family to explore. Highly recommend this home! Lorin and Stephanie Hughes
Lorin and Stephanie, we are pleased you managed to have great time despite your boat engine problems. We love sharing the cabin. Thank you for the kind review.
Comfortable Lakeside Cabin with Outstanding View
We met some friends for a winter get away in McCall and chose the Poole Cabin. We were NOT disappointed, the layout is fantastic for multiple families and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We loved the wood trim and nostalgia that went along with it (boards salvaged from original cabin). We hope to visit again soon!
Thank you for the kind review. Dan thoroughly enjoyed getting to know you. Do stop by and visit next summer.
First off I tip my hat off to Dan and Mary Poole! Amazing cabin right on the lake views are amazing !!! And they make the stay 5 star ⭐️ also the cabin layout is perfect great ski weekend with close family and friends !! Definitely going back!!
Thank you so much. We are pleased you enjoyed our happy place,
Shanga La in the Snow
Our group consisted of four males, all retired from government law enforcement and all various levels of intermediate skiers. We unanimously found the lodging to be perfect from every perspective. We used four of the five bedrooms. All four had comfortable King size beds. We did not cook, but the kitchen was complete. There were enough good restaurants in McCall (a charming small town) to prevent us from even thinking about eating in. The house is lakefront and the view is indescribably beautiful. The property was loaded with books and games to amuse children of all ages (even in their fifties and sixties). We also enjoyed sitting in the family room at night and observing two different foxes dropping by to beg for a handout. We also observed a number of mule deer and elk in the neighborhood.
The surrounding mountains and Brundage Ski Resort offer one of a kind vistas. Even though the resort is comparatively small, the entire mountain is accessible offering a wide range of incredible scenery.
The owners, Dan and Mary Poole, are genuinely the real deal and will go out of their way to make sure you enjoy your stay. This is a no brainer that offers a lifetime of good memories.
Thank you so much for the kind review Steve. We loved hearing from you and our only regret is that we could not be there with you. We agree with everything you said, except the beds are all queens. We do so love it there. We are so happy we could share it with you.
Had enough room and everything we needed for a family reunion ski trip! Great view and cozy feel, owners were very accommodating.
We are always pleased to meet your needs and add a little happiness to the world we share. I am sure the snowy days brought even bigger smiles to your faces as well.
perfect place for a large family
The cabin was a perfect place for us to stay in McCall! The layout of the cabin worked well for us since we had multiple families staying together, it had enough space for us to congregate or spend some separate time when needed. The view of the lake over morning coffee was a peaceful way to start the day and the living room fireplace provided a cozy room to relax over a glass of wine at night.
The owners are very accommodating and concerned that we were comfortable, which made our trip even more enjoyable. We will definitely be back!
