About the property

SLEEPS 19! 5 Bedrooms, Theater area, Large Bonus Room, 3 1/2 Bathrooms.

Built in 2008, this beautiful nearly 5000 sq ft home sits on 10 acres and boasts a panoramic view of the valley and surrounding mountains. This property is located just 1.8 miles from the town of Lava Hot Springs and backs to BLM as well, so an ATV ride into town for groceries OR access to hundreds miles of back country trails can happen at a moments notice. Home includes: 5 bedrooms & large bonus room (Sleeps 20) 120" Projection Theater System, Granite countertops, 2 jetted tubs and a walk-in steam shower, WIFI, wood flooring, on-demand hot water system and soft water, front loading washer/drier, beautiful deck & walk-out basement with gas grill, outdoor and indoor speakers, this house has it all!

A 4WD vehicle may be needed to access house in the winter months, (though we do have someone lined up to plow when it snows). The house is located on the side of a mountain so there are many variables involved there but parking below and walking the 40 yards or so up to the house may also be an option for you.

About Lorie and Richard Cannon

Richard grew up in Shelley, Idaho (home of the Shelley Russets!). Lorie grew up on a cattle ranch near Rifle, Colorado. They met on a blind date at Ricks College in Rexburg, Idaho in 1994 and moved all around the country getting educated. We have 4 children.

Lorie and Richard Cannon purchased this house in 2013

Why Lorie and Richard Cannon chose Lava Hot Springs

We have always dreamed of owning a place in Lava Hot Springs and when this property became available, we fell in love with it right away. Our family has visited the Lava Hot Springs area nearly every year. We enjoy the swimming pools the most! Next we enjoy the beautiful mountain setting, exciting swimming/tubing activities for kids, and the quaintness of this small town.

Making improvements and painting all of the once-pink walls, have been a labor of love that our whole family has been a part of. A highlight in our week is to get to stay at "Lava View Lodge" on our free weekends but having 4 busy teenagers, it is hard to find the time to get away. As a result, we rent it out to considerate guests on most weekends of the year and find it getting busier and busier.

What makes this house unique

This home is in complete isolation! The view of the mountains and golf course from the dining room windows sold us on the property. It is a special 'haven' away from everyday chaos. We see deer and jack rabbits nearly every morning. If you consider renting in winter months, make sure you bring 4WD.

Wonderful house for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Lava View Lodge for 3 nights in June, 2018. We hosted our children and grandchildren. The master suite was wonderful and the other 5 bedrooms were perfect for our family. The kitchen was spacious and worked very well for our breakfasts and dinners. The seating for 12 at the dinner table plus stools at the bar were ample for all our family. The home was well appointed with TV's, games, and things to keep us entertained. The yard was large enough for family games and fun. We brought our side x sides to ride the roads and trails right from the house. We were only a few minutes drive down to the town and hot springs pools. We enjoyed floating the river and soaking in the hot pools.

Highly recommend this as a wonderful location to enjoy and relax or host a family reunion.

Best vacation rental we’ve ever stayed in

  • 5 of 5

This amazing home had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. Very spacious and beautifully decorated, large kitchen, great beds, plenty of parking, atv trails, lots of outdoor space to play, close to the hot springs and pool and much more. It provided our family a great experience. We couldn’t have been happier.

Beautiful home. Perfect for Families

  • 5 of 5

This is such a great property and we recommend it to anyone! The home was beautiful and clean. The location was minutes from Lava Hot springs. If you are a golfer be aware that the golf course has closed.

Close to the little town of Lava. The kids had so much fun with the zip lines and lawn activities. The home was beautifully maintained and large enough for our family of 14 to gather and enjoy. We will come again!!

Perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautiful, and exactly as described. It has a stunning view either from the balcony/deck outside or through the dining area window inside. And, we loved eating and playing games as a family at the huge dining table. The home is in a great location-close to town and activities. It was the perfect place for our large family group to enjoy being together for a summer get-away at Lava Hot Springs.

This place is fantastic!! The views are everything, and the house is better than the pictures. Plenty of room for our family reunion and a nice break from downtown. It's your own personal oasis

The golf course/mountain view from the property is second to none! ATV trails abound right from the property. The house is close to town (just over a mile) for the swimming, tubing, shopping, parks, square ice cream cones, grocery stores, museums, restaurants, parks, etc..but also has a rural feel since it sits back up on a hillside with nothing but nature (deer and jack-rabbits included) surrounding you. Tubing the 'Portneuf River' through town will rival ANY theme park ride! (Warning: You WILL get wet!) Golf is moments away. The ladies will likely be able to watch the men golf a round while eating breakfast from the dining room table or out on the beautiful red-wood deck. After golf, take the 23 mile drive east to Soda Springs, ID; (home of the worlds only CAPTIVE GEYSER) which reaches heights of 100 ft and erupts every hour on the hour year-round. Kids can even play in the warm geyser water! It is lots of fun. Find the fresh carbonated springs bubbling up from the ground north of town and don't forget the root beer or cola extract (and sugar) to make a flavorful soda drink!

If Ghost Towns are your thing, take the beautiful 23 mile drive north of Lava to CHESTERFIELD. It 5,446 ft in elevation and was located along the Oregon trail, founded by Mormon settlers in 1881. The community includes a cemetery and former buildings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints such as a former meeting house, amusement hall and tithing house. After a railroad line was built through Bancroft to the south, the community lost some of its momentum, and agricultural difficulties led to its desertion by the end of the 1930s. Today, the community is operated as a tourist attraction, with guided tours and a museum.

As you can see, there are endless things to see and do in the Lava Hot Springs area.
