The Pinehurst Lodge is nestled against a mountain with dirt bike and ATV trails right out of the driveway. Even though it's away from the crowds, it's only minutes from Silver Mountain (6 mi) and Lookout Pass (24 mi) Ski Resorts, snowmobile trails, several rivers and the famous Route of the Hiawatha and the Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes. Choose from two decks to watch the birds or relax in the shade. Being next to public and forest service lands, this 1 acre property is visited by moose, deer and turkeys throughout the year.
The recently remodeled home features hickory cabinetry, bamboo flooring and all new appliances.

The high open ceiling in the living room has a multi-speed fan and you can take in the view from the spacious windows. When you come in from the cold, get cozy by the natural gas fireplace that gives the look of a wood stove without the work-- operate it by remote control! We urge you to bring slippers so you can leave your shoes in the entry. We make every effort to keep the floors as clean as possible right down to steam sanitizing between guest stays.

My family moved to the Silver Valley in 1954, and I attended schools in Osburn, Pinehurst and Kellogg. I have happy memories of summer days on my bicycle by the North Fork of the Coeur d'Alene River and my first skiing experience was at Lookout Pass. I now reside in Coeur d'Alene but I am still a 'Silver Valley' girl at heart.
My father built this home in 1963 so I couldn't imagine not keeping it in the family. It has become our cozy retreat to get us closer to the woods, the dirt bike trails and fly fishing and I love spending time here with my family and even though it's all new inside, it still feels like home to us.
The best part of the Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes is south at the Pinecreek Trail Head, about a mile from the lodge. Our location is convenient for us because it's only 30 miles from Coeur d'Alene and it provides our guests with additional opportunities for fun and adventure at Lake Coeur d'Alene and Silverwood Theme Park. Then, only minutes east is my favorite huckleberry picking spot and the historic mining community of Wallace for our guests to explore.
