Donnelly, Idaho is a very small community about 11 miles south of McCall. It may be diminutive now, but it is situated right at the foot of the West’s newest ski and golf resort, Tamarack which makes it one of the prime real estate locations in Valley County next to McCall itself.
Donnelly is near the Cascade Lake and the Payette River and is known as a prime fishing spot. Since it is located in a wide valley surrounded by mountains, it is also excellent snowmobile and cross country skiing territory.
For those interested in history, the Roseberry Museum is just a few miles east of Donnelly. The museum includes a turn of the century church, a school/city hall, store, residence, and farm machinery are the center of this ghost town. The museum includes logging, woodworking tools, and a spinning wheel and loom used by local Finnish pioneers. Until the turn of the century, Roseberry was the urban center of northern Long Valley. The town gradually moved to Donnelly.
