Take your coffee out on the big, redwood deck of this charming three bedroom home overlooking beautiful Coeur d'Alene Lake, savor the view, take a deep breath of the clean lake air. Less than a mile from the lake, this two story home is your ticket to all the great sites and activities the area offers. Enjoy all the boating, fishing, hiking - you name it - available to you when you choose this charming home for your getaway!
Set down slightly from the road, this home is accessed by a short stairway. Surrounded by trees, it has a warm and rustic ambiance. Once inside, head up the stairs to the living area. You'll probably be spending most of your time here; and rightly so. Just one look at the view from the deck and you may not want to go back inside! The living room, however, is comfortable and nicely decorated with a plush chair and recliner, perfect for kicking back with a book, magazine or your laptop. Before you leave home, pack a couple of your favorite DVDs to enjoy on the player. (Sorry, no cable TV). Your well-behaved doggie is welcome as well!
If you're okay with driving, there are a few restaurants in the area, but you won't be ordering haute cuisine. So you'll want to bring stuff for meals. The home has a full kitchen with lots of room and all the equipment your cook will need from prep to clean up, including lots of utensils, pots, pans, a microwave, and a dishwasher. There are lots of cabinets to store what you brought, and room for four at the table when you're ready to serve. Weather permitting, take advantage of the gas grill on the deck and enjoy the tremendous view with your barbeque.
This home sleeps six. There are three bedrooms, all on the lower level. Two of the bedrooms have queen beds and the third has a full-sized futon. You'll also find two full bathrooms.
When you stay at this home, you'll be just a 10 minute walk from the public docks where you can rent boats, paddle boards, pontoons, wave runners, or kayaks. At Gateway Marina you can dock your boat, rent a boat, stock up on stuff, buy local art, and have a beer and a sandwich. If you're a cyclist or hiker, you'll want to hop on the Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes, a 72 mile trail paved from Mullan to Plummer. Cycle or roller blade to historic Heyburn State Park, just seven miles south, and spend a day hiking the trails. Or, head over to the Thompson Lake Wildlife Refuge on the town's northeast border. Bring the camera and photograph osprey, eagle, white swans, and other wildlife.
Harrison is located at the mouth of the Coeur d'Alene River, so there's plenty of kayaking, rafting, and, of course, fishing. Anglers can try their luck both in the lake and nearby rivers for bullheads, cutthroat trout, large-mouth bass, northern pike, chinook salmon, perch, crappie, blue gills, sunfish, channel catfish, kokanee, and tiger muskies.
Whether you're hanging out enjoying the view, or experiencing all the activities available in the area, come stay at this charming home right by Coeur d'Alene Lake and see for yourself what a true Idaho vacation looks like.
