About Suanne Harns


My name is Suanne and I am the owner of Lake Front Property Management. I have been assisting other homeowners with their summer rentals for about 16+ years. I enjoy helping people plan their summer vacation on the lake.

Suanne Harns purchased this house in 1993

Why Suanne Harns chose Harrison

My husband Mark and I moved to North Idaho in 1991 from San Diego, California. We had two small children and the dream to build a home in Carlin Bay. We built our home with the intention of someday having a bed and breakfast when the kids were grown. The house is 3 levels and has a locked off apartment in the daylight basement in which we live in during the summer months. I had started to manage other lake front homes for summer rentals and after the kids were off to college we decided that we too would offer our home for summer rentals. Instead of making it a bed and breakfast it is now a 3 bedroom 2.5 bathroom home that rents only during the summer months.

What makes this house unique

We are pet lovers and like to allow our guests to bring their small furry loved one with a pet fee of $100 per dog. This house has a nice grassy front yard that most lake front homes don't offer. We have lots of water toys that are available for our guests. We found that our guests appreciated the personal contact and information we could share about the area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The very best part was playing the Lily Pad. We enjoyed looking in all the different books. My brother Evan, was so excited that you had a whole book on DINOSAURS! Dad taught me lot's of new card tricks! The hammock's were so much fun! I really want one at my house now. Mom said it was a relaxing place to return to after long days at Silverwood! The beds were really comfortable, even though I shared with my little sister. I really hope we can come back! Thanks

Fabulous Lakeside Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is a place that we never wanted to leave. Perfectly situated on the lake with gorgeous views from every window, it had everything you could ask for a lakeside retreat. We spent two weeks and didn't go out to dinner once because it was too hard to leave the beautiful sunset views. And of course, Mark and Suanne are warm and gracious hosts. We highly recommend this property for a great stay on Lake Coeur D'Alene!

Great location, very clean and up to date too!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The property exactly as listed. Very clean and up to date. We thoroughly enjoyed this house and the Carlin Bay location. The owners couldn't be more nice. We have rented for five years on CDA and Hayden Lake and this is the best owners we have met. I would recommend this house and these owners to everyone.

Having the owners downstairs was a bit odd, but they were lovely and we barely knew there were there. The accommodations were perfect and other than a steep climb from the dock to the house, we were able to relax and enjoy the beautiful setting.

Point Harns was on point!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place to gather my married kids and their families on the water. Point Harns checked off our every wish list box. The cumfy chair next to the large window get moments of reflection and quiet solace. So from the inviting home and family space to the dock, "kiddie pool", water toys and picnic are waterside this made our family get together a complete blast and enjoyable for all whether 53 yrs old or 19 months, we all hated to leave. A great choice for a relaxing time family time at a well cared for home this is it!
