About Philip McCormick

Hi! from Phil and Jan. Flying is our passion and Idaho is perfect for back country flying adventures. We enjoy biking, kayaking, hiking, fishing and everything Idaho has to offer. We especially enjoy the friendly people of Coeur d' Alene.

Philip McCormick purchased this house in 2005

Why Philip McCormick chose Coeur d 'Alene

Our cottage on 8th Street is really special. We spent 14 months remodeling the home both inside and out. Previous owners dating back decades would drop by and introduce themselves and tell of great stories of raising their children in this home. They very much appreciated the improvements that we made.

Of course the location is perfect. The home is on a quiet street but only 3 blocks from Sherman Avenue where all the stores, coffee shops, and restaurants are located.

What makes this house unique

From our cottage our guests love to take leisurely walks into town. No need for a car. Tubbs Hill nature walk is a really popular activity. Our home is fully fenced in and you have privacy in the back yard while cooking on our grill. Everyone really enjoys the home audio system. Mom can soak in the claw foot tub listening to Mozart while Dad is in the kitchen listening to 80’s rock while cooking for the family.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house was a perfect "home away from home" to celebrate the Easter weekend. The three of us were very cozy, enjoyed the hideaway TV, the well appointed kitchen, and the soft beds. The location made it easy to enjoy the shops and other businesses close by - maybe a bit too close to Zips where we enjoyed 3 large milkshakes for desserts one evening. The proximity to the Centennial Trail also made for an enjoyable run one morning. - From Guestbook -

Just the best!!!

  • 5 of 5

I've rented a number of VRBO homes/apartments in the U.S. and Europe over the years and the 8th Street house was without question the best VRBO rental I've stayed in!! If I could have given the rental more than 5 stars I would have. The pictures on the web don't do the house justice. Four bicycling women friends stayed at the house for three nights and we had ample space and enjoyed the ambiance that both the house and the neighborhood had to offer. The front porch was a favorite place to be early in the morning before bike rides and in the evening after dinner. I was impressed that the owner called me shortly after doing the walk through with the property manager to make sure everything was o.k. and he called me again a few days after our stay to make sure that our stay had lived up to expectations. I would recommend this property again and again!! One more thing.........if you are spending time on the beach there are like new beach chairs and umbrellas as well as beach toys for the kids!!!

Beautiful location!

We loved the house on Ash St. It was beautifully maintained, clean and well stocked, They thought of everything to make our stay exactly what we needed. We could walk to the lake and it was close enough to town yet quiet and away from the busy tourists on a holiday weekend. Thanks!

My wife and I spent seven nights in this wonderful "Hansel and Gretl" cottage. Congatulations to the owners for remodeling a nice little place into our favorite vacation home EVER! They have thought of everything that guests would need so all the five star reviews are well deserved. We look forward to our next visit and spending our evenings out on that quiet and comfortable porch.

Enjoyed the Elegant Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week in this lovely home. It is very close to the downtown of

Coeur D' Alene and we either walked to town or rode the bicycles we rented from the bike shop in town. We attended the catholic church which is a block away from the house - you can see the steeple from the house. This home is decorated beautifully and has so much room. The owners took much pride and thought into every detail. (The house was very clean when we arrived.) We read on the front porch and ate meals on the back porch while grilling out. (we did walk to town for some meals.) We used the beach chairs and beach towels that were provided. The house has a security alarm which we used, even though we felt it was a safe neighborhood. We would strongly recommend this home for a couple, maybe two couples, or a family of 3 or 4. Enjoy!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the 8th street house in August of 2014, can't say how much we enjoyed the home, especially the relaxing front porch. Not much traffic on the street and a quick 10 minute walk downtown. Inside the house is top notch with very nice amenities. Looking forward to staying there again and taking a notch off the stress meter. Cheers
