Built in 1906 it was a working farm in its early days. The home was well cared for all those years, and in over 100 years we are fortunate to be just the 3rd owners.
The log house is a big 4-bedroom home with brand new eco-friendly super comfortable cushy beds – 2 queens, a king in the master bedroom, and a bedroom that features twin beds. A full-sized sofa bed in the den folds out for company and we provide a queen air bed if needed.
We furnished this majestic home in our eclectic, artsy, colorful and comfortable style, displaying a lot of northwest and local art throughout the house.
The front porch is wide and comfortable and features a big porch swing - wonderful for enjoying warm summer evenings.
The fenced back yard is huge and private - a great gathering place for you with Adirondacks, a fire-pit, picnic tables and a BBQ. There are lots of lilacs and fruit trees including 5 apple, 1 plum, and 1 pear.
Our location is perfect for freeway or downtown access and is very close to our favorite restaurants We are within a short walk to downtown and are very close to the up and coming midtown area with its cute shops and restaurants.
This house is a work of love for us and we look forward to sharing it with you.

We are locals and have lived in the area for decades. Both of us spent our summer vacations on Coeur d'Alene Lake when we were kids and are grateful to now live full-time in the play area of our youth. Nick is a fireman and Carol is an RN who also authored and illustrated a popular local children's book called Raising Lucy. She works as an Artist in Residence in schools across the state of Idaho, and operates a publishing consulting firm.
Carol purchased this house in 2011
Why Carol chose Cougar Bay
This is our home. We loved it for years before we bought it, because of it's a beautiful log home and because of the size of the lot - it is huge and private and is close to downtown and mid-town. There is something magical about the house. We wanted to be close enough to walk to downtown for Art Walk, the fireworks, and other events. We also liked the unique property and its history along with the fact that it is not smack dab right next door to neighbors. The house and its property has a woodsy in-the-forest feel.
What makes this house unique
Walking distance to restaurants, sushi, bars, and organic market. Fire pit, BBQ, Privacy. Unique woodsy setting - big sunny back yard. Tipi, patio, private back yard. Truly your own private Idaho!
