Rockford Bay House Rental Photos and Description
House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, (Sleeps 7)
Right on the shore of Rockford Bay (a charming inlet on Lake Coeur d'Alene), with its own slip for three boats, is this amazing eight-sided home in the round with three bedrooms and room for seven guests. Enjoy 180-degree views of the water from the wraparound deck, and the wonderful location on the "right" side of the lake where it gets evening sun and the water is warmer.
Secure the boat at the slip or your jet ski's in the two ports provided and come into the living area of this amazing home. Its vaulted, tongue-in-groove wood ceiling rise up in unique, quadrangular sections, creating a huge, rustic space where you can truly relax. Open a cool one and belly up to the bar by the window under the neon Corona sign while you wait for dinner. On chilly evenings, throw a log on the fire in the wood fireplace and sink into one of the comfortable couches. Check the evening cable news on one of two flat screen TV's, enjoy a DVD, or just listen to a CD. If you're feeling lucky, cut the deck and start a game of five-card stud at the poker table!
With an eye for space, this home's designer put the fully equipped kitchen along one wall. Flanked by a long counter perfect for prep work, your cook will have everything needed to fix everything from scrambled eggs to spaghetti. There's a big double fridge with ice maker, an electric range and oven, and a dishwasher. There are a couple places to eat in Rockford Bay, including a restaurant at the nearby marina For a land-based dining experience, make the 30-minute drive up to Coeur d'Alene. But choose carefully: there are 120 restaurants in and around Coeur d'Alene.
This unique home has three bedrooms. The log-framed queen in the master bedroom echoes the rustic decor of the home. Brightly lit and vibrantly colored, it also has access to the deck, so, upon rising, you can start your day with a breath of fresh air outside. The second bedroom also has a queen bed. Kids of all ages can stay in bedroom number three, where you'll find a bunk with a full on the bottom, and a single on top. Everyone will stay warm with individually controlled heat in each room, and the living room futon provides more flexibility for sleeping arrangements. There's one bathroom and a full laundry room, so you'll always have fresh clean clothes for your forays out on the lake.
Depending on the level of the lake, you can head down to your own private waterfront firepit for roasting marshmallows and swapping stories. The deck has plenty of seating to soak in the views, and the gas grill is covered so you can enjoy fresh barbecue at any time of year!
Though you could easily spend your entire getaway just hanging out at this beautiful home, floating on the lake and enjoying the scenery from the deck, there's lots to do nearby! Visit the Rockford Bay Resort (10-12 minute walk) where you will find Shooters Bar & Grill, gas and a mini-convience store. With so much water (there are fifty lakes in the area), you can kayak, fish, or water ski. There are three national forests around Coeur d'Alene, so bring the hiking boots and the bikes. Yes, there's golfing too. Along with nearby Coeur D'Alene Public Golf Club, there are seven other places to tee up. Winters in Coeur d'Alene are fun-filled too, with ski areas from within 48 to 90 miles of Coeur d'Alene, including Silver Mountain Resort to the east, and Kellogg and Schweitzer Mountain to the north in Sandpoint.
