This is the place memories are made of...Enjoy this home, nestled in the pines, on the shores of
Lake Coeur d'Alene, named by National Geographic as one of the top five most beautiful Alpine lakes in the world. Tastefully decorated, with a comfortable atmosphere, Westway House is the setting for a relaxing family vacation.
The house (itself) is wheelchair/walker accessible via a ramp located on the back porch of the house.
Enjoy your morning coffee on the covered front decks while viewing the abundance of wildlife on Kidd Island Bay. You'll see ducks, osprey, Great Blue Herons, otters and beavers, wild turkey, deer, and elk.
As the day progresses, jump into your boat and experience all the lake has to offer. With over 100 miles of shoreline, you can spend days exploring the many bays and inlets. The lake is perfect for water skiing and wake boarding.
If you feel adventurous, you can go in search of secluded islands and spend the day swimming and enjoying a picnic. Zip across the lake (10 minutes) for an evening meal at the world-renowned Coeur d'Alene Resort, or one of the many other fine restaurants accessible by boat.
Westway House features all the modern amenities, in a casual setting. The main floor includes a large open living/dining area with exposed log beams, fireplace, a fully equipped kitchen, a game room (pool table), laundry room, two full bathrooms and a master bedroom.
The main level also features a large partially covered deck built around a 100 year old Ponderosa Pine.
The two bedrooms on the second floor share a bathroom. The lower level bunk room walks out to a covered deck. It contains two twin beds. The waterfront includes a dock, where you can tie up your boat or jet skis, and a fire pit for cozy evening gatherings.
Westway House is a four season vacation paradise that begins the year with the winter ski season. Coeur d'Alene is situated within an hour of four major ski resorts, including Schweitzer Mountain and Silver Mountain, boasting a six-person gondola. In addition, you will find hundreds of miles of snowmobile trails. Attractions in the late Spring include the Coeur d'Alene Marathon (held in May), 'Car d'Alene' which is a three-day classic car event, and the world famous Ironman Triathalon (held in June).
Summer brings one of the largest Fourth of July celebrations in the Inland Northwest. Included in the festivities are a parade, a multitude of food offerings, street dances, and music everywhere! The culmination is a spectacular fireworks display over the lake. In August, you can experience the Wooden Boat Show, or Art on the Green, which features three days of fine art, fine food, and fine music. Thanksgiving weekend offers the Festival of Lights. December through mid January the majestic Bald Eagles take pause during their southerly migration to feast on the spawning Kokani salmon in Wolf Lodge Bay.
Although there is an abundance of events and activities right at your doorstep, you will find Westway House to be an oasis in which to revitalize, with a relaxed and casual lifestyle. . .the home where memories are made!
