LUXURY ON LAKE COEUR D'ALENE!

Driftwood Bay House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms - 4 Baths - (Sleeps Max 6)

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.

Here are a few quotes taken from the in-home guestbook we ask our guests to sign.

'We had a fabulous time here. Who knew you could find such a beautiful house on the internet?'

'We had one of our best family reunions here.'

'A peaceful oasis that's scenic and relaxing-this place is a wonderful retreat for us from the hectic lives we lead.'

'We really had a great time and I personally enjoyed your kitchen layout and all the kitchen utensils you have provided. Fantastic kitchen'

' We have traveled all over the US and Europe but this still ranks as one of my favorite vacations! '

'Your home is just impeccable...immaculate and stocked with more amenities than we ever expected!'

'We've been to Alaska, Hawaii, Disney World, Cancun and Chicago-but we've been to Driftwood Lodge three times!'

Extra Touch

  • 5 of 5
We just stayed at this amazing property and have never had this kind of treatment before. Tammey goes above and beyond to make sure you are comfortable in her beautiful vacation home. From day one when I first contact Tammey to the end.
We where greeted with such a warm welcoming . A stocked kitchen, and a lot of little extras all over the house also. Every room had its own little touch. From magazines to games, condiments to bathroom extras. The location of the home was also perfect.
My family had the best vacation ever. They are all hoping to return. Thank you Tammey so much for your amazing gift of hospitality. We hope to see you again soon.

Fabulous Setting

  • 5 of 5
We had a small family gathering of seven people and this house was wonderful! We were all awed by the attention to detail, quality of the furnishings, well stocked kitchen and the setting, inside and out. The outside decks were perfect from morning coffee to evening wine. We had a great time and would recommend it highly. We'll be back!!

What a great place to spend a week!!

The house was everything promised and so much more. Immaculate, spacious, well laid out and stocked with more then expected. Our group consisted of 4 adults/4 children but we never felt crowded. Enjoyed many drinks and moonlight chats on the upper balcony, what a view!! Thanks so much for another great rental experience. If Italy doesn't work out summer of 2011 we will rent this home again.

Ironman at Driftwood Lodge

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week at Driftwood Lodge for our son's Ironman competition. The house was perfect for three couples and two young children with each family having it's own separate quarters and bathroom and everything was in tip-top shape. The view of the lake is lovely and the deck well set up and comfortable. The Cameron's are extremely hospitable and feel like part of your family before you are done. They have certainly done a thorough job of stocking the house. We would certainly recommend this house and would love to return.

Driftwood Lodge July 2009

  • 5 of 5
Our famly thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Driftwood Lodge. We arrived to be greeted by Tammye, Don and Sarah who gave us a tour of the house, which was really helpful as far as explaining the amenities.

The house was immaculate and beautiful. The bathrooms were luxurious. The kitchen was very well stocked. We especially loved the fresh flowers in the foyer which were beautiful all week. The view to the lake was just great. The house is close to the beach, no long winding steps down to the lake, and the house area is enclosed by a gated fence, which was great for the safety of our 2 grandchildren. They enjoyed the water and the swing set on the lawn every day. The air conditioning was great to have as it did get hot. If we got too hot we went inside to play games and read books in the library/loft. The kids caught a few bass right off the dock.

We loved the house and relaxation so much nobody really wanted to do many activities off of the property. Some did take a mountain bike ride on the Hiawatha Rail Trail, a very scenic and mostly downhill ride of 15 miles of tunnels and trestles. Silverwood Theme Park was fun for the kids. We also went to Emerald Creek to dig for garnets. It took over an hour to get there but our 6-year old grandson had a great time. You dig pails of dirt, sift the dirt, then wash the stones in troughs of running water. It is run by the Park Service. We did find 2 ounces of garnets. Mostly we just enjoyed being by the lake. We went boating, tubing, swimming and fishing. We sat on the patio at night, played cards and listened to the water lap on the shore. Can you believe it, hardly any bugs to bother us?

The big grill on the patio was great for steaks and hot dogs. We did have pretty good hamburgers out one night at Carlin Bay Resort. We boated to Arrow Point Resort intending to eat there one night only to be informed they were closed for a private party. Call first.

Since our 24-foot boat was too big to dock overnight at Driftwood Lodge, we had a slip at Carlin Bay Resort, only 8 minutes from the house. It was only a mild inconvenience and all in all worked out pretty well.

We just had a great time on our vacation and would recommend this house to friends and relatives. Tammye & Don thought of everything to make our stay so wonderful. Hope to go back soon.

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.
