About David Gencarella

We vacationed through Coeur d' Alene with our family about 12 years ago...within 6 months we lived here and we've been enjoying it ever since!

David Gencarella purchased this house in 2006

Why David Gencarella chose Cougar Bay

This home is the perfect location - the 5 forested acres with 200+ feet of water makes you feel like you are away from civilization - but its only 3 miles to downtown!

Outstanding in every way!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
We could not have had more FUN! The home is beautiful, well equipped and is full of games and toys to keep all ages entertained for the entire week. Our family ranged from age 77 to 3 and there was something for EVERYONE. The property is beautiful and the home is lovely both inside and out. It was the perfect home for our 50th wedding anniversary with the whole clan. The owners were friendly and helpful in every way. We had so much fun that everyone wants to return again and make it an annual reunion!!!!! Would we recommend this property? ABSOLUTELY! It has our very highest recommendation. You will love it!

Great Week at an Amazing Home Right on the Water

  • 5 of 5
We had an incredibly lovely time in this spacious home right on the Spokane River. The house is large enough for my extended family of 12. Each individual family had their own space and bathroom and there were plenty of rooms throughout the home to have quiet reading time or a family board game.

The house boasts an large dock where we spent many hours of the day laying out, boating and fishing. Even better the house virtually every game you can imagine. There is a pool table, foosball table, ping pong table, shuffle billiards and pickle ball. We played volleyball and croquet and always had a "new" option of fun when we were not on the water.

The kitchen is a large chef's kitchen and has high end appliances so you can cook everything you do at home. Definitely give the panini press and double waffle maker a try! Even better, there is a second fridge/freezer in the garage which will help store your food for the week. We found no reason to go out to eat, because it was so easy and fun to cook for a large crew at the house.

Laundry was available on the first and second floors which all of us found super convenient and allowed us to pack light. For all those latte-lovers, there is a Starbucks 2 miles down the road and movie theater if you catch a rainy day.

We will be back. The Spokane River is the ideal place for a family boating vacation. We would choose the river over the lake every time. The owners make renting this home easy and convenient and are incredibly fair and honest.

Thanks for a great week!

Best Vacation EVER!

  • 5 of 5
Our extended family of 12 (ages 14-80) unanimously declared our reunion week at this amazing property "the best vacation EVER." The home is extremely spacious and beautifully appointed, but except for sleeping and cooking, we spent the entire week outdoors -- on the boat, jet ski, kayaks, tubing, water skiing, wakeboarding; lounging on the shaded deck and shaded lawn; roasting marshmallows by the outdoor fire pit; playing whiffle ball and football. We felt like the Kennedys at Hyannis Port! The entire group unplugged and watched t.v. only twice -- for World Cup soccer semi-finals. July temperatures were in the mid-80s to low-90s, but the forested lot and lawn made for a wonderfully pleasant climate. We took the boat to Coeur d'Alene once for dinner and drove by car once for lunch and shopping -- other than that, we grilled outdoors and didn't want to leave paradise. I had initially looked for a home on the lake but discovered that this river location is far superior -- less watercraft traffic, less wind, calmer and warmer waters, great sightseeing, and the lake and town easily accessible by boat. The homeowners provided outstanding service, checking us in and giving us the tour, then following up on all our needs. You cannot go wrong with this luxury vacation home rental. We highly recommend, and we will be back!

A Fantastic Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5
My family had a wonderful vacation at this beautiful home on the Spokane River about 15 minutes by boat from Coeur d'Alene Lake. There were 12 of us--my husband and me, and our three children and their families, plus our younger daughter's two dogs. There were bedrooms enough for everyone, and our four grandchildren, a boy and girl of eleven, and girls of nine and eight, shared a room with a king bed downstairs and a loft with a bunk bed with a regular bed below and a twin bed above.

The listing description of the house was accurate, but the house was actually neater than described. The kitchen was large and well laid out, so that a number of us could work in it at the same time. There were all kinds of equipment and appliances; in fact, there wasn't anything that we needed that wasn't there. There was room for all of us to eat in the dining room, the breakfast nook, and at the bar, but because the weather was so lovely, we ate outside for our meals other than breakfast.

The living room was cozy, and the game room was nice; my son in law and my grandson played pool and foosball quite a bit. There was a game in the garage that everybody played--there was something addictive about it. It was built by the owner's son. It was a long box on legs, with pool balls on each end, and a person on each end threw the cue ball at the balls at the other end and tried to knock them into a box. Then the person who caught the cue ball threw it back at the pool balls on the other end. The game was quick, and then the winner would play the next person watching. Everybody played the game, and somene was playing nearly all the time.

There was a sand beach by the river, and the grandkids loved that. The river was clear and not very deep by the dock, so the kids could swim there, and there was a bench on the dock where someone could sit and watch them. We rented a pontoon boat for several days, and used it to go into Coeur d'Alene for lunch and for shopping. We also used it for tubing, which the kids loved. Everybody had fun on the boat, even the dogs.

The owner provided good customer service; he met us at the house when we arrived and explained how everything worked. He texted us daily to make sure that everything was going well, and some member of his family came by to feed the chickens daily. We collected the eggs from the chickens for breakfast and cooking, and we also used herbs from the herb garden.

I would recommend the house!

Amazing property for an amazing retreat

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect venue to celebrate my in-laws 40th wedding anniversary. There were 3 couples over 60 and 3 couples under 35 with two kids and a baby and it was PERFECT. There is a chicken coop with 8 chickens and a garden with fresh fruits and vegetables that we collected everyday. The kids adored the chickens! They are quite docile and produced the most delicious eggs. David's hospitality was unparalleled--he even brought us pastries and muffins one morning. David was always available to help us with anything we needed--he even helped us set up a private chef to come and cook for us in the home one night. The house itself is phenomenal. It has a rustic/cabin feel to it, but luxury all around. The kitchen was fantastic. Everything about our stay was amazing and this house was central to it all. We would return in a heart beat, but prices have gone up since our visit!!! Even still, we would love to return. I have no complaints and only praise for this amazing home.

Perfect Family Reunion!

  • 5 of 5
What a perfect spot for our family reunion. The venue really did make the difference. Between that fabulous Rainbow swing set, the club house and the sand toys, the little ones, Cheri and Alex, were entertained for hours at a time. It gave me time to just relax – got 2 books read! I enjoyed the experience of preparing meals in your well-appointed kitchen. Other homes we’ve rented didn’t have nearly the selection and quality of cookware. It’s obvious you care about your guests. I will be recommending it to my friends. Its expensive, but based on my experience, worth more than you are charging. Thank you again for sharing your stunning property with our family.

200+ feet of water frontage, 7000+ s/f luxury home completed in 2006. Elegantly appointed and nested on 5 flat, forested acres, with spa, orchard and garden. Within 1 hour from 4 ski resorts. View great video on our website cdavacationhome.com

Feels much like Disney's Jungle cruise!

Minutes to world class golf courses including CDA famous 'floating green' at the CDA Resort. Only an hour to 3 great ski resorts. Spokane Airport is within 30 minutes.
