Upon our arrival we were greeted by Susan the owner of this exceptional property! She showed us around and gave us all the information we needed to become acquainted with our new enviroment. Yes, we all thought we died and went to heaven.... unfortunately, it only lasted a week. This home was designed and built by Susan's husband, Brian, what a talented guy. They have both made this house a warm and inviting home. It has a rustic elegance that will make you feel completely comfortable and at the same time will give you the feeling you're staying at a 5 star resort. The kitchen is equipped with gourmet appliances and every modern convenience. The views from every room are breathtaking and each room is beautifully furnished. The deck is beautifully laid our with an amazing water feature, bbq and enough table and chairs to accommodate our large group. We also experienced some fantastic sunsets on that deck. There's a hot tub and plenty of chaise's to make everyone comfortable. We spent a great deal of our time on the private dock where we tied up our boats. We enjoyed, skiing, tubing and just hanging out. The property has a large tipi and a fire pit where we enjoyed making s'mores and just visiting. It's not often that our whole family is able to get together and just enjoy each other's company. We had every intention of taking advantage of the local attractions, but honestly, we just couldn't bring ourselves to venture out...........we were having too much fun. The owner, Susan, is awesome and couldn't have been more helpful. We miss you Susan!! On the day we were leaving we asked our grandkids if they wanted to return next year to Lake Coeur d'Alene and they had one stipulation " we only want to come back if we can stay here"!! I couldn't have said it better myself!
