Our family has lived in this area over 20 years, and this is our vacation home. We aren’t some firm with a fleet of vacation homes we rent. Our goal is that we can share our piece of paradise with a hand full of other families, and let them add to the great memories already created in this home.
This location features a wide variety of recreational opportunities. The home is at the mid point of Lake Coeur d'Alene. By boat, this is 20 minutes from the town of Coeur d'Alene and about 20 minutes from Heyburn State Park on the south end of the lake. There are a number of lakeshore dinning establishments that make for terrific excursion opportunities(eg. Shooters, Conkling Park, Gateway, and Carlin Bay ). By road, this home is 35 minutes from the town of Coeur d'Alene and 45 minutes from Spokane Valley. The Spokane airport is a one hour drive from door to terminal.
Riding bikes on the Trail of The Coeur d'Alenes, which begins in Plummer, Idaho, is a beautiful family adventure. It is a paved railroad grade that provides an amazing opportunity to see the south end of the lake, and if you choose, allows you to bike nearly to the Idaho - Montana border. We highly recommend a family bike ride from Heyburn State Park to the village of Harrison for ice cream at the Creamery on one of your days here. The total bike ride for this trip is 15 miles on a nearly flat, paved trail with outstanding vistas and potential wildlife/bird viewing all the way. Just let us know before you arrive if you need a few bikes.
Circling Raven Golf Club and the Coeur d'Alene Casino are just 15 minutes away from the home and feature a world class golf course, casino, buffet and steak house. The course has been rated in the top 100 by Golf Magazine Golf World.
If you are visiting during the winter months the surrounding area has five different ski resorts within an hour to an hour and a half from the home. You can ski or board the powder at Schweitzer Mountain, Silver Mountain, 49 Degrees North, Lookout Pass, and Mount Spokane. These areas also have summertime activities, such as concerts and biking.
This home is located in the Cave Bay Community that has its own private park and marina 0.7 miles down the street from the home. The park features a children's play area with plenty of sand to dig in and a shallow, roped-off swimming area in the lake. There is also a campfire pit, chairs, and tables for use in the park...great opportunity for hot dog roasts and s'more cooking, storytelling around the campfire and building lasting memories for your family. In addition, there is a volleyball net (with ball), and horseshoe pit for the big kids. The home has its own boat slip in the marina, and boat rentals are available at a number of locations around the lake. Lastly, the marina features a swimming dock with plenty of room to lay out a towel and enjoy the sun, or cast a lure into the lake and try to catch a fish (for more on fishing Coeur d'Alene Lake see our web site fishcda dot com). We have a selection of fishing poles in the home strung up with our favorite lures, ready for you to use!
