About Dondi Pierpont

Hi! We are a family of six from SE Washington. We run a couple of campgrounds/RV parks: Tamarack RV Park in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, and Beach RV Park in Benton City, Washington. We love traveling, camping, and sailing.

Dondi Pierpont purchased this house in 1999

Why Dondi Pierpont chose Northern Idaho

This house is on Government Way in Coeur d'Alene, in a prime location across from Costco, Black Sheep Warehouse, and Safeway. It's centrally located between Lake CDA and the town of Hayden Lake. We love the water of the lake, and the convenience of the surrounding shops and stores! We own and operate Tamarack RV Park just behind this house, so it was natural for us to offer this house to guests who enjoy the comforts of kitchen and couch and patio when traveling.

What makes this house unique

With this vacation home, you can enjoy the quaint, brickstone Camper Patio with picnic tables and flower planters, in the center of our Tamarack RV Park. It is a comfortable gathering place for your family or group. Enjoy cooking on the BBQ grill or watching the goldfish in their pond with a waterfall.

Tamarack House is also a great jump-off location for exploring Silverwood 15 miles to the north. Or drive east to Kellogg, Idaho, to enjoy a gondola ride up the hill to silver mines and explore an old west town! Farragut State Park is also close by.

Nice house built in 1960

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with my family in January, five of us in total, and we had a lovely time. The biggest problem we had was the gas fireplace, and that was because we didn't know how to operate it (duh). You have to open the yellow valve on the gas line, push the knob on the fake logs in to turn it, and hold the knob pressed in to the "Pilot" position for about 10 seconds before pressing the starter clicker (button on the left (but still front) side of the black box the knob is on). You should hear it hissing very quietly if you're doing it right. You should be able to see the pilot flame nestled between the "logs" if you get it started.

The kitchen is pretty fully equipped, but check to make sure the cookie sheet fits in the oven before you put cookies or scones or whatever on it, because the oven is pretty small. We made it work with a disposable foil baking tin. The oven runs a little cool, by the way.

I saw a review saying there were tents in the front yard when the RV park was full. Not a problem for us in January, but the RV park was (surprisingly) full. I didn't expect that.

If I'm ever in this area again in cold weather, I'd consider this house again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your thoughtful review. The fireplace is actually pretty straightforward. But you make a good point. We will place printed instructions beside the fireplace for the next guests. The oven dimensions are 17"x17" and 18 3/4"'s adequate but not huge.

The property was as described, however overflow camping is the front yard of the house. If they are busy, be prepared to stare into the tents of others if the blinds are open. We ended up having to keep the blinds closed the entire stay.

Just remember it is an older property but it is convenient to everything.

Awesome find!

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 families (each one parent/one child) traveling from Missoula to Boise for a soccer tournament and this VRBO turned out to be perfect for us. Not only was it affordable, it was so comfortable and had everything we needed (and then some!) Great location to boot! This was SOOOO much better than a hotel as we were able to cook our meals and hang out comfortably between games. The people that lived in the apartment complex were friendly. There is even recycling here. We are coming back for another tournament in June and looking forward to using the pool. It's also cool that there is a school soccer field next door (our boys loved that). To me, it seemed like the owner really put a lot of thought into making sure we had everything we might need. Looking forward to coming back. Thank you.

Silverwood Trip

  • 5 of 5

Family trip to Silverwood, about 15 minutes from park. We had 4 adults and 4 kids house was plenty large enough to accommodate us. Like that the kitchen was fully equiped with plates, cups, utinzlies, even a wine opener and the dishwasher made it even better.

Very comfortable and clean stay

  • 4 of 5

We were a party of 3 adults and 2 children ages 8 and 5. Great location. near stores and restaurants. close to the lake. Dondi and James were very friendly and responsive to our needs. Our kids loved the cats Fred and Sunny that were around the office and park.

The BBQ area with the waterfall was very nice to have dinner outside.

The rooms were comfortable and surprisingly quiet. heard very little noise.

We all enjoyed our stay. The kids already want to go back and stay here. So I anticipate we will be returning in the near future.

it is not a fancy place but is clean and comfortable and has everything needed for a nice stay

clean and cozy

  • 4 of 5

The Tamarack House is a clean and cozy alternative to hotels. It is part of an RV park and sits at the front of the property. We stayed at the height of summer so there were lots of tents in the front yard; all campers were respectful and didn't intrude or make noise. One night we sat on the (shared) patio and enjoyed the fresh air. The park management was great and very nice to work with. Only thing that seemed off is that property is listed as having one room with a king bed, but it's only a queen.

Thanks to the RV Park for a nice stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks for noticing my typo on the bed! I've now changed the wording to reflect the three queen beds in the house :)
