Enjoy the colorful sunsets and lake views from almost anywhere in this lovely, CLEAN, 3000 square feet contemporary home with 100 feet of waterfront. You'll love the rock patio and natural landscaping.The home features finished pine and tile flooring, skylights, abundant windows, and three well-appointed bedroom suites, plus a room with twin beds. The home is right on the water, complete with wrap-around covered decks, private boat dock with mooring, and a panoramic view toward the west. Swimming is a few steps off the lawn. Away from the sunny, open waterfront you'll find a shady, park-like lawn, an herb and flower garden, large firs and pines. You might see a bear, deer or moose, or catch a fish from the dock. Inside and out, you'll love this vacation getaway!
You can plan your day over morning coffee on the deck. Many of our guests enjoy the area golfing at a dozen local courses ranging from lavish to pitch-and-putt. Others come to fish and boat. We have a great central location for fishing and there are many lovely, quiet mornings for water skiing. Some of you come to relax and soak up the views, the gentle sound of the waves, the shade of the lawn, or late Fall sunshine. Our main deck is built around a 100-year old pine, and there are sitting areas there and on the slate patio and upper deck for both sun and shade as the long summer days change. Winter and Spring are wonderful times here when there is a lot of game and few people and boats. It's a four seasons vacation area with four major downhill ski resorts within a one to two hour radius of the house. Check-in/check-out day is Friday during the summer, with the exception of Ironman week.
We have cell and cellular broadband coverage. The satellite service features HD packages and local stations. We have limited broadband internet access via a Verizon Mobile Hot Spot.
We provide a clean, smoke-free environment, so we do not allow smokers or pets. Shorter stays and lower rates are available off-season. Boats docked at the house are limited to 21' or 5000 lbs.

Lake Coeur d'Alene is one of Idaho's largest lakes - from the dock you can cruise up the lake with your boat 15-20 minutes to downtown, or take the 25-minute scenic drive by car on paved Highway 97. You can spend your whole vacation exploring this magnificent lake. Swimming is great from June until the end of September when water temperatures reach 75F. Our dock and beach are good for kids because there is a concrete ramp that goes part way out to about 3.5 foot depth. You can watch them close by from the dock or the decks, and the water is invitingly crystal clear. Our west exposure brings the odd squall when it's best to pull boats out temporarily.
Other Activities: parasailing, biking, snowboarding, shopping, boating, Near Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes 85 mile-long bike trail.
