My family had a wonderful vacation at this beautiful home on the Spokane River about 15 minutes by boat from Coeur d'Alene Lake. There were 12 of us--my husband and me, and our three children and their families, plus our younger daughter's two dogs. There were bedrooms enough for everyone, and our four grandchildren, a boy and girl of eleven, and girls of nine and eight, shared a room with a king bed downstairs and a loft with a bunk bed with a regular bed below and a twin bed above.
The listing description of the house was accurate, but the house was actually neater than described. The kitchen was large and well laid out, so that a number of us could work in it at the same time. There were all kinds of equipment and appliances; in fact, there wasn't anything that we needed that wasn't there. There was room for all of us to eat in the dining room, the breakfast nook, and at the bar, but because the weather was so lovely, we ate outside for our meals other than breakfast.
The living room was cozy, and the game room was nice; my son in law and my grandson played pool and foosball quite a bit. There was a game in the garage that everybody played--there was something addictive about it. It was built by the owner's son. It was a long box on legs, with pool balls on each end, and a person on each end threw the cue ball at the balls at the other end and tried to knock them into a box. Then the person who caught the cue ball threw it back at the pool balls on the other end. The game was quick, and then the winner would play the next person watching. Everybody played the game, and somene was playing nearly all the time.
There was a sand beach by the river, and the grandkids loved that. The river was clear and not very deep by the dock, so the kids could swim there, and there was a bench on the dock where someone could sit and watch them. We rented a pontoon boat for several days, and used it to go into Coeur d'Alene for lunch and for shopping. We also used it for tubing, which the kids loved. Everybody had fun on the boat, even the dogs.
The owner provided good customer service; he met us at the house when we arrived and explained how everything worked. He texted us daily to make sure that everything was going well, and some member of his family came by to feed the chickens daily. We collected the eggs from the chickens for breakfast and cooking, and we also used herbs from the herb garden.
I would recommend the house!
