About Philip McCormick

Hi! from Phil and Jan. Flying is our passion and Idaho is perfect for back country flying adventures. We enjoy biking, kayaking, hiking, fishing and everything Idaho has to offer. We especially enjoy the friendly people of Coeur d' Alene.

Philip McCormick purchased this house in 2005

Why Philip McCormick chose Coeur d 'Alene

Our cottage on 8th Street is really special. We spent 14 months remodeling the home both inside and out. Previous owners dating back decades would drop by and introduce themselves and tell of great stories of raising their children in this home. They very much appreciated the improvements that we made.

Of course the location is perfect. The home is on a quiet street but only 3 blocks from Sherman Avenue where all the stores, coffee shops, and restaurants are located.

What makes this house unique

From our cottage our guests love to take leisurely walks into town. No need for a car. Tubbs Hill nature walk is a really popular activity. Our home is fully fenced in and you have privacy in the back yard while cooking on our grill. Everyone really enjoys the home audio system. Mom can soak in the claw foot tub listening to Mozart while Dad is in the kitchen listening to 80’s rock while cooking for the family.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house was a perfect "home away from home" to celebrate the Easter weekend. The three of us were very cozy, enjoyed the hideaway TV, the well appointed kitchen, and the soft beds. The location made it easy to enjoy the shops and other businesses close by - maybe a bit too close to Zips where we enjoyed 3 large milkshakes for desserts one evening. The proximity to the Centennial Trail also made for an enjoyable run one morning. - From Guestbook -

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for the Ironman race. The house location was great - we could walk to restaurants and the lake and to cheer our friends on the race course! We took advantage of the air conditioning in the cute house and the rooms were perfect for our stay. The house had everything we needed and we loved the porch and swing!

I would highly recommend this property when staying in Coeur D' Alene!

We loved the house on Ash St. It was beautifully maintained, clean and well stocked, They thought of everything to make our stay exactly what we needed. We could walk to the lake and it was close enough to town yet quiet and away from the busy tourists on a holiday weekend. Thanks!

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

I loved everything about this house. The kitchen had everything I needed, and the tile floor was heated. It had a sound system that allowed me to play music in every room. Everything in the house is updated and fresh. It's a very quick walk to downtown. Loved, loved, loved this house!

Perfect House in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit and could not have been more pleased. The house was perfect for our family of four. Plus it was in walking distance to everything we wanted to visit. The house is clean and set up for a family to enjoy. it has porches on both the front and back and we use both. It was so nice to be able to sit on the front porch swing and enjoy just talking as a family. In addition it has extra amenities that you will never get in a hotel. It truly spoiled us and will be hard to ever stay in a hotel again. It is a 5 STAR house and location.

Adorable house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in the 8th Street house in CDA. The location was perfect - just a few blocks walk to all that Downtown CDA has to offer. My absolute favorite part of the house was the front porch. We spent hours on the front porch listening to music and saying hi to friendly passerby's. The house was very comfortable to stay in with many extra amenities that most rentals don't have to offer: detergent, condiments, beach chairs/towels, games for kids, Netflix! The beds were very comfortable and the house had lots of charm. We would definitely stay again and recommend the home to others.
