Welcome to our inviting lakefront cabin! We have owned this 'little bit of paradise' for 23 years and have shared many memorable moments with our friends and family members. We have teens that will soon be headed to college so have decided to open our cabin up for rental to offset the escalating cost of college! Thus, your are offered the opportunity to enjoy our charming lakefront cabin! We hope that your family will make many memories at Spirit Lake just like ours has.
Although the cabin is small, it lives REALLY large, especially in the summer and can nicely accommodate 10, including kids. We have one bedroom with a full size bed, a futon in the spacious living room (with views up the lake and to Mount Spokane) that folds down to a full size bed, one bathroom, a sleeping cabin that can sleep two to three on a high quality air mattress, and a small basement area that can sleep three to four on fold out thick mats (with another bathroom soon to come). The accommodations range is based on whether the persons staying are adults/teens or small children. There is a path that leads down to the lake from the cabin. The lakefront includes a dock with a swim ladder, boat slip, and use of our canoe. The park-like yard by the cabin includes an outdoor fireplace (smores!), outdoor table and chairs (most of our meals are eaten here in the summer), and a hammock for reading or dozing. The bedroom of the cabin has a small TV with DVD while the living room has a flat screen TV with DVD player. Directly across a very quiet street is VRBO #401565, a newly remodeled log cabin. Both cabins could be rented together to easily manage up to 20 people for a family reunion or larger friends/family gathering.
We are the Rasmussen family: Eric & Sheryl and our girls. We have owned our Spirit Lake cabin since 1989, the year after we were married. Although we live in the Seattle area, Eric grew up in North Idaho. A neighbor at the lake kindly offered the cabin/property to us for purchase and we have been more than blessed with it for the last 23 years. We have spent each summer here near Eric's parents enjoying family, friends and each other while participating in the rich variety of what North Idaho has to offer for recreation.
North Idaho provides outstanding beauty and activities during all seasons. Summer fun includes swimming and fishing on the lake from the dock. Bring your boat and/or jet skis for water skiing, tubing, and lake fishing. Farragut State Park (outstanding mountain bike trails) and Silverwood Theme Park/Boulder Beach Water Park are less than 10 miles away. Day trips to Sandpoint (45 minutes) and Coeur D' Alene (25 minutes) can include shopping, restaurants, the city beaches, and music under the stars at The Festival at Sandpoint. Summer mountain biking or huckleberry picking and winter snow skiing are only an hour away at Schweitzer Mountain near Sandpoint. North Idaho is a three season golf paradise and two courses are located less than 8 miles from Spirit Lake: Stoneridge Golf Course and Twin Lakes Golf Course. Many other golf courses are excellent options nearby including the renowned Coeur D' Alene Resort Golf Course, home of the world's only floating green. Downtown Spokane is only an hour away with restaurants, museums, and shopping.
