About Bob Shamberg

We are local retired educators who enjoy sharing beautiful North Idaho with travelers from all over the United States and Canada.

Bob Shamberg purchased this house in 2012

Why Bob Shamberg chose Cougar Bay

We fell in love with the Vintage Charm of our Coeur d'Alene Cottage the moment we stepped through the door. Our first home in Coeur d'Alene was a Turn of the Century Home of the same era. This home has that same kind of charm and detail as the home where we began raising our family.

What makes this house unique

Our location can't be beat! You can walk to the lake, The CdA Resort, Tubbs Hill Trails, 2 parks, all the local shops & restaurants or a block and a half to get a great cup of coffee and a muffin.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks again for renting your home. My parents said it was perfect. The location could not have been any better!

We really want to Thank You for providing such a lovely, quaint cottage. We had a great time in the area and loved coming home to our little house every evening. We look forward to going back one day!

Thank you so much for the use of your cottage! We all had a wonderful time.

Efficiently equipped!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the coziness of this cottage. Great location, could walk to the park and resort. They had everything you could need or want in their cottage for a great vacation. It has lots of charm and lovely antiques, while giving you the comfort of a home away from home. Would love to go there again.

Exactly as described

  • 5 of 5

We spent one week at this property and were not disappointed. The listing description is accurate and the photos reflect the rental's appearance and amenities. The property was very clean and well maintained. We were struck by the quality of the furnishings, appliances and all the products provided for our use. While we never met the owner in person, we did speak on the phone and he was a pleasure to deal with in all aspects of the process. The location of the property is excellent. We would highly recommend this property.

Great home in fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and son and I stayed at this home for two weeks in August 2013.

It's a great small home, clean, comfortable and quiet. The two bedrooms are separated nicely so if anyone is a night owl or early riser they don't have to bother the others.

It looks small, but there was plenty of space for the three of us. The gas stove and well equipped appliances were nice. It stayed cool and comfortable, which was nice after the hot days. The couches were comfy, and we enjoyed them a couple nights while we watched movies and ate popcorn. There was also plenty of storage space. This was good because we don't like living out of suitcases when we are on holidays. Plus, the soaker tub was delightful, and purely restful.

Although the home is great itself, the most outstanding feature of this home is its location. We hardly used our car while we were here. The coffee shop is only a couple blocks away (I think you can see the shop outside the front window of the home!). The library is a few doors down, which was great for me as I was doing some online Masters studies and needed the library to work. Plus, Mcewan field is being updated, and that's only a block away.

Tubbs hill is fantastic. We were there almost every day. The activities from Sherman, including the street market at the beginning of August, the live bands, and the farmer's market ... all within a few minutes walk.

We felt safe, comfortable and wished we could just move in!

This has been our fourth year in CDA, The third house we've rented. In previous years, we rented larger houses because we had more family members with us. This year, the smaller house in the PERFECT location was the best choice for us.

Bob also had a couple of mountain bikes available for our use, which was great! My husband and son brought theirs, and I used one of Bob's to take a day trip to the Hiawatha bike trail on the Idaho Montana border. I HIGHLY recommend this for people, as it was a fantastic trip for us ... a happy day we'll never forget.

We've been in a few homes in different cities around the United States. This home, while not perfectly new, is beautifully decorated, comfortable, perfectly clean, and its location is the BEST for this community.

We're hoping to be back soon!

What a gem!

  • 5 of 5

My family traveled to Coeur d'Alene for a triathlon/vacation and we stayed 4 nights at this cottage. Very comfortable layout and a fenced yard that was great for the kids. Loved the little bakery close by and everything was in walking distance. Will definitely stay again!
