We were invited to Lake CDA by family in Utah. We could not have been more pleasantly surprised about your beautiful home! It is superbly decorated and equipped with everything we could want while enjoying the grounds and water. Thank you so much for your kind hospitality, as well. I know my whole family enjoyed every minute here, and will be talking about it for a long time to come.
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!
We were planning a family reunion get-together in the Coeur d'Alene area. After viewing the photos and reading some other reviews, we picked this home. Our interactions with the owner, Susan, were clear and easy. The property looked terrific on the internet.
When we got there, we were overjoyed with our choice - a gorgeous house with no nearby neighbors on a secluded bay. This place has something to keep everyone relaxed and entertained - indoors and out. Inside, there were books on a wide range of topics, games & puzzles, audio, video, an amazingly well stocked kitchen, and bird feeders in full view from the bedroom and living areas. Outside, there were wonderful views and scenery, kayaks and a row boat, lounging on the patios or the dock, swimming, fishing, bird watching, a hot tub, a tipi, a fire ring for evening s'mores, and beautiful grounds to stroll. Nearby were trails for jogging and bicycling.
We saw Bald Eagles several times, lots of Ospreys in the nearby area of Harrison, a young moose swim across the bay and back, and several spectacular sunsets. Took lots of photos - thank goodness for digital photography. Everyone had a great time, and the reunion was a success.
The gracious and friendly owner and host, Susan, was nearby on the large property to help with anything we needed, which wasn't much. We don't usually write reviews, but this place deserves a good one. If we ever go back to Coeur d'Alene, we'll stay here again.

We had a birthday (75th!) for my mom and had extended family visit this incredible house and location for about a week. This house is so well thought-out and built it amazed everyone. The stairs don't even creak... The plantings, birds (dozens of hummers emptying the feeders every day or two), furnishings, artwork, book collection, dock, beautiful rowing skiff, kayaks, fishing, kitchen, teepee, fire pit, privacy, moose swimming across the bay, hot tub, patio furniture, thunderstorms, sunsets, on and on. What a paradise! Susan was a great help and joined in when invited - and kept scarce when folks were doing their own things. I think we all muttered under our breaths - or aloud- that we could live there forever.... This is the nicest place I have ever stayed.
Awesome and beautifully decorated home. The home and grounds are immaculately maintained and Susan is a great host and so helpful for planning activities. There is so much to enjoy right at the home you may not want to leave, but we did venture out for a hike at Beauty Bay, a bike ride on the Trail of Coeur D'Alene and a kayak trip out of Harrison. All of these activities are in close proximity. We were pleasantly surprised with the good meals we had right in Harrison, but the gourmet kitchen certainly begs you to cook right at home. Lots of wildlife sightings over the five days we were there. We also rented a pontoon boat at the Harrison Marina and explored the lake one day. We only wish we had a few more days to enjoy all this home and area has to offer!
This property is an incredible find for a great vacation rental! The surrounding mountains and gorgeous bay are full of things to do and presents the perfect setting and atmosphere to enjoy the company of family and friends.
The pictures do not give you the sense of warmness and comfort you experience when you walk in! Sam and Kerry took great care in decorating the house down to the last intricate detail! They are very welcoming and caring and made us feel like we were at our "home away from home"!
There is a great deal of room both inside on on the numerous decks and the beach and the views are really incomparable!
I am recommending to ALL of my friends and will definitely be a repeat....and repeat...and repeat guest!
Thank you Sam and Kerry for making my vacation so memorable!!
PS The hot tub is the best way we relaxed after a great day of 4 wheeling and hiking in the mountains and you have to experience the fire-pit on the beach.....just add s'mores and starlight!!
Our family spent a week at this spectacular home. We waited months anticipating this trip, looking at the pictures and hoping it was as good as it looked. The home and property exceeded all our expectations! From the beautiful spacious home to the warm lake and dock area, we were all "awestruck"! Everyone enjoyed boating, swimming and lounging at the water's edge by day, then getting the kids to bed and having adult time on the deck watching breathtaking sunsets over the lake.
Susan and her faithful dog "Jack" were so very gracious during our stay starting with a bouquet of flowers and a jar of fresh baked cookies, (a big hit with the kids)!
We take a family vacation every year and this one rank at the top, for BEST TRIP EVER! We asked the kids for one word to describe this vacation spot and they all chose "AWESOME"!!
Thank you Susan for welcoming us to your amazing home, we left with so many happy memories and hope to return next year!!
