Cougar Bay House Rental Photos and Description

Family home, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.25 Baths, (Sleeps 8 max)

Comfortable log house, less than a mile to lake. Big yard. Big patio with fire pit, huge fenced, flat, and private yard, big and welcoming cool front porch perfect for the hot summer, newly updated, fun art, comfortable beds, teepee, & an attached garage.

High on walk-ability and bicycling. We are close to some great restaurants like Syringa, and Bistro on Spruce. Walk only 3 blocks to Pilgrims Organic Market & Deli for groceries and wine, and we're just a few blocks from Bicycle Sales and Service on 4th Street Bike rentals: http://www.bicycleservice.com/ .

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.

Keywords: 4-bedroom/sleeps 8. Historic Log Home, High walk-ability @ downtown and mid-town, Great location for bicycling. Huge private yard, with a big tipi for kids.

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

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.

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!

Great accessibility to everything in town, restaurants, bicycling, and lake fun.

Wow! Warm, spacious and inviting!

  • 5 of 5
We were lucky enough to spend 10 months in this beautiful home. The owners are wonderful to their tenants, always ensuring we were comfortable and things worked well at the house. We stayed from August to June and loved the house. It's a bit drafty in the dead of winter, so pull on an extra sweater and use the (provided) throw blankets. We love using the patio and firepit - the front porch is ideal for a warm afternoon read (or nap) on the swing. Very well appointed - you won't need to bring any kitchen supplies, even the knives are good and sharp. Plenty of tableware and plastic for little tykes. Just a couple blocks north of the garden district, so walking the neighborhood is nice. The lake is a short drive or about a mile walk. There to Tubbs Hill, around and back is about a 4.5 mi hike. Highest recommendation!!

Awesome House, Attentive Owners

  • 5 of 5
We stumbled upon this house while we were looking for a property that would accommodate our two dogs. As soon as we saw the pictures of the backyard we were hooked! Huge lot with grass (a real treat for the Vegas crowd!) and those chairs!
We were in town for our wedding and wanted a central location so our house guests could get around town without renting a car. A taxi to downtown was super inexpensive and usually resulted in a walk back.
The house is very spacious and with 8 guests filling it up it was amazing how you still could have your own space and privacy. There was never a time we were running into each other.
Carol was so attentive during the whole rental process. She was organized and made it clear what was needed for a happy stay at the property. She made herself available if you were in need of anything.
Awesome experience, memorable week and a great first experience using VRBO.

Thank You Carol and Nick for playing a huge part in our wedding week!

Owner's Response: It has been great fun to have such wonderful renters. It has been obvious when the housekeepers arrive, that everyone respects and cares for the house just as we hoped. Thanks to all our summer renters!

The home was just as advertised. Clean and well-kept. Carol and Nick were helpful and gave advice for a couple of hikes and a great restaurant close by. We enjoyed the full kitchen and the backyard was great. Didn't get a chance to use the firepit as it was too warm, but the patio was delightful. I would recommend this property to anyone, in fact, my cousin's wife in Post Falls wanted more information as she hosts Sweet Adelines in the area.

We had a family reunion and stayed at this lovely home. It accommodated 8 adults easily and comfortably. We enjoyed the fire pit, being close to downtown and the cycling trails. It is a very inviting,warm home. All the comforts of home.

Fun in CDA

  • 4 of 5
This was a wonderful home to be at. Very clean and nice. A homey feel for sure and owners were great to work with. I would give it an excellent but does not having an upstairs shower. Had to go down 2 levels to basement bathroom which was beautiful, but not practical especially for older guests.

Owner's Response: We do agree about the upstairs bathroom, which is pretty big but has a roof slope that made it difficult to install a stand-up shower. In order to put it in we would have to do an extensive remodel so decided for the time being to install a spray nozzle in the bath upstairs to be more accommodating. People have enjoyed our big shower downstairs with heated bathroom floors, and the big hot water heater can handle quite a few people.

Well excceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here July 20-27,2012. The home is as beautiful as the pictures portray and beyond. The beds were extremely comfortable and dressed far better than some hotels I have visited. The property is beautifully decorated and very well maintained. The owners could not have been more welcoming and available for all our questions and needs. We loved the firepit in the backyard, and sitting on the front covered porch as well. The location is perfect, close to everything we needed. Our pets were welcome and comfortable as well. We will not stay anywhere else in Coeur d'Alene now that we have found this property and cannot wait to visit again...
