This home has two large decks with an unimpeded view of Lake Coeur d' Alene. It is located on a bluff overlooking the lake, below which is a frontage road between the bluff and the lake. This allows access to our private dock. You can rent or bring your own boat... This house is a five minute drive from central downtown Coeur d' Alene. Lake Coeur d' Alene is 27 miles long and has l09 miles of shoreline. We are locatead on the North end of the lake.
Leather furniture, down blankets for all, lovely patio furniture and all cooking necessities right down to the cookie sheets tastefully makes this home a place for relaxation. It has a ''nature'' theme which instantly relaxes you when you walk in. There is a queen sized bed in one bedroom and a double in the other. Two twin sized, 3 inch foam, fold- out mattresses are also available. Due to the steepness of the cliff below our home we have decided not to allow children under 5 years of age.
The house is spotlessly clean and very comfortable. It is beautifully landscaped with a very relaxing lawn overlooking the lake which has a different feeling than the deck view. The lawn is large enough for croquet(furnished)or simply relaxing.
From the deck you can see The Lake Coeur d' Alene Resort Golf Course with it's ''famous floating golf green''. There are l9 public golf courses near by.
The ''Centennial Trail'' a 26 mile, paved hiking or biking trail, is adjacent to this property as it traverses along the lake heading toward Spokane, Washington. There is also a newly completed Rails to Trails 83 miles circuit through the Coeur d'Alene Mountains within 30 minutes from this home. The Hiawatha Trail is another popular Rails to Trails path designed for mountain bikers. This trail is famous for its numerous trestles and tunnels. You can reach this fun activity within one hour.
Some of the community activities include Bald Eagle watching during the months of December and January. (We furnished the binoculars!!) This year over 200 eagles were spotted and one of the prime viewing areas is only 5 minutes drive from the house. Some of the eagles frequent our pine trees right off our deck each winter! We have a huge ponderosa pine tree in the back yard with a platform that we are hoping an osprey will take over this year!
Other area activities include the Bloomsday Race in Spokane in May, Ironman Race in June, Antique Wooden Boat show in July, outstanding Fourth of July Fire Works over the lake, several car shows, Art on the Green Festival the lst weekend in Aug, Coeur d' Alene Marathon, Indian Pow Wow in July, Summer Theater, several Music Festivals nearby, and many other unscheduled activities.
In the fall months of September and October, it is beautiful here as there are many deciduous trees changing color.
The entire mountainside is painted with swaths of yellow tamarack (larch) trees, and the weather can't be better! Four major ski resorts are located within 50 miles of Coeur d'Alene, there are many miles of snowmobile trails as well as designated cross country ski trails close by. The end of December brings the bald eagles annually and our famous New Year's Day plunge into Lake Coeur d Alene.
Girls trip extraordinaire! We loved every minute of our stay and definitely plan to stay again. So clean, cute & close to the water and town. Owners were very accommodating.
"Pristine" is a very good word for this lovely property! My husband and I joined my elderly parents from Texas to stay the first week of August to enjoy our reunion as well as plan my mom's end of life decisions, and yes, to also have some fun! Darilyn and Paul were super to work with on arrangements, and answered my many questions very affably. The pictures above represent the place well. First morning, we ate out on the lovely spacious deck while breathing in the beauty and tranquility of Lake Coeur d'Alene. and watching the various birds busy at the feeders Lovely! I was hooked! The weather was perfect and we enjoyed the deck at various times of the day and night---amazing view! So beautiful and peaceful! The beds and bedding were extremely nice and comfy, we always slept well. Inside and out, all was very clean, tastefully done, and well supplied, and invited sweet companionship. We made rich family memories during our stay at the home as well as a few places about the area---like nearby Roger's for ice cream and burgers, the Olympia Greek restaurant (very authentic), plus downtown strolling, shops, and inside and outside restaurants. Also there is info in the home of local happenings---so, we went to a free concert right downtown in a park -lovely African music the night we went. All of us would definitely recommend this lovely home and would come again. The only thing we would have liked better would have been two full baths instead of 1 1/2 bath, but we managed quite well in spite of that. I cannot imagine ANYONE being disappointed in this idyllic place!
We enjoyed staying in this comfortable home very much. We were three friends enjoying a ladies vacation and had a spectacular time. The home is quite lovely and furnished very well. The beds were comfortable and we just felt so much at home. The best part is the view--we could have sat on the deck all day and just soaked it in. We also hiked on Tubbs' Hill, walked on the path by the lake, took the lake boat cruise, and had a great dinner at Cedars--a floating restaurant. This has been one of our favorite trips--would come back in a heart beat, and we would stay right in this wonderful home. LOVED IT!
What a great home! The deck is fantastic and when we were at the house and not out exploring, we spent most of our time outside on the deck enjoying the view of the lake (and a full moon). We saw deer around the neighborhood every day. It is a peaceful, quite street. The home is very well taken care of, clean and well stocked. Beds were so comfy. I was a little worried when I was selecting the house it might be on the small side since there were 5 adults (me, my husband, three young adult 'kids') but once we arrived I had no concerns. The house worked perfectly and there was plenty of room and we never felt like we were in each other's way. We used an extra mattress floor pad which was pretty comfy too. We had friends bring their boat by one afternoon and tie up to the private dock which worked out really well. We enjoyed the Hiawatha bike trail as well during our stay.
Thank you, Darilyn and Paul, for opening your home to us. I would recommend this home and we hope to be back!
A fabulous rental property. The pictures do not do it justice. The owners have gone to great lengths to make this rental feel like home. They are great to communicate with and give you all of the information you need about the area and details on the property It is fully stocked with everything you need and I mean everything. The views are spectacular. it is close to town and other activities. We would rent this property again without hesitation. Thank you!! It was hard to leave.
Enjoyed our holiday there. Love cycling in the area. The views off the decks are breathtaking, and you could just spend a day enjoying them. The house is well stocked, and very clean.
The owners are awesome if you end up needing them, and I would recommend this property to anyone traveling in the area.
I look forward to returning yearly!...
Thanks for making our time there special, we loved it!
