About Susie Cook

We purchased our property at Priest Lake in 1994. I used to call it the 'most expensive camping spot in the world'. We had the shell built about 10 years ago and had intended to finish the inside ourselves. After many years of trying, we decided to go ahead and let the professionals complete it. The inside was just completed July, 2012. Better late than never! Now it's ready for you and I to enjoy.

Susie Cook purchased this house in 1995

Why Susie Cook chose Squaw Bay

We have the nicest beach in Huckleberry Bay. We were the first people to buy property on our shoreline. When we heard it was opening up for sale we came in by boat before the road was in and scoped out the best beach. When the lots went on the market, we were ready to pounce on the best one.

What makes this house unique

You will love the light, breezy feeling of our home. Most homes on this lake have a dark, cabiny feel. Ours was intentionally built to be just the opposite. We enjoy the beautiful views of the water and our beach from the open verandas on each level.

A Mixed Bag

  • 3 of 5

Priest Lake was beautiful, and my family very much enjoyed our time there. That said I'm not sure how much the house itself enhanced our vacation. The things we did like about the house included the view, two barbeques, ping pong and foosball, a very extravagant kitchen, television and Netflix, the surrounding neighborhood, appearance and cleanliness, and a dock with great swimming and boating access. One main sore point for me was the lack of hot water, rendering the lukewarm Jacuzzis virtually useless. Another criticism is the excessive list of rules, a three-ring binder's worth. Do not expect to get the entirety of your deposit back, as our family spent our last morning at Priest Lake cleaning and was still charged an unreasonable amount for professional cleaning. While we had a fun time, we would not choose to stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. As you said, it is a beautiful house in a wonderful setting. You also said that you enjoyed the cleanliness of the home. My cleaners do a wonderful job of making the home just as perfect for each and every visitor. It is expensive to have a home cleaned in a remote location. In order to avoid hard feelings in the future, I have started including the cost of the cleaning in my rental price.

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home located right on the lake. The house layout is great for multiple families, especially the division of bathrooms, showers and sink areas. Well appointed kitchen. We enjoyed having our boat right outside the house and the dock was great for a quick refreshing dip in the lake in the afternoons. House is situated to allow privacy from the houses on both sides.

Paradise on Huckleberry Bay

  • 5 of 5

We have been visiting Priest Lake, ID for over 40 years and our stay here was one of the most memorable. The Cabin is brand new and located in one of the most pristine bay's on the lake. It is the prefect scale located on a low bank beach and is perfectly appointed with gourmet kitchen, comfortable bedrooms, rec room for kids with ping pong and foosball, beautiful bathrooms, etc. It is a very well designed cabin with function and design both considered. Susie was very accommodating and made sure we felt welcome and was very responsive to any of our questions, etc. The cabin has a great dock and we enjoyed two weeks of hiking, water sports, cycling, and relaxation.

Serenity and fresh air amongst such awe inspiring beauty!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late in the day on a very hot almost summer like afternoon. We were able to stock up on groceries etc in Priest river then drove the final hour to the place. Very impressive house, grounds, placement on the lake. Wine and cheese out on the dock the first evening just at night fall. Amazing sunset. The decks off all areas of the house are spacious and well covered from the weather. Inside the home the main living dining kitchen areas are ample and comfortable but with very upscale finishes. Kitchen was awesome since I like to cook. Even with several of us in the home we were able to have privacy and space. The gathering places are set up well for large family gatherings. I could say a lot more but ran out of space. we had a wonderful vacation here.I plan to visit again, bring more friends, and spend some time out on the water. Renting a boat in advance would be a terrific idea.
