About Wendy

We love Twin Lakes! This is our third vacation rental that we have bought here, we recently sold the first two smaller ones that we had been renting to guests to buy this larger home that will hold our family during our vacations. We take a lot of pleasure in helping our guests enjoy the little bit of time they have to get away from daily life and hopefully relax and reconnect in a meaningful way with their family and friends at the lake. We don't take this lightly so try to provide you with quality value for your time away from it all so you feel refreshed when you go back to your "real life"!

Wendy purchased this house in 2015

Why Wendy chose Northern Idaho

This is such a great location if you want to have lots to do on a vacation. There are many ways to enjoy the outdoors with activities such as fishing, golfing, hiking, or wildlife watching. If you are into more touristy activities the cities of Sandpoint, Coeur d'Alene or Spokane are close by. And of course if laying on the dock or sitting on the deck with a cup of coffee relaxing is what you like to do then just stay at the house and enjoy!

What makes this house unique

In my opinion one of the most enjoyable aspects about our particular location on Twin Lakes is the beautiful view of the mountains right across the lake from us.

Wonderful Vacation Memories

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying at the twin lakes home for a week long vacation with my daughter, Grandchildren and four year old Great Granddaughter. We rented both floors and I can honestly say that there was something in the house for all the activities you want on a vacation . The layout of the house, gorgeous yards, tables and chairs, along with all the amenities that come with the house are suitable for all ages and are of very good quality. The attention to detail on everything from the spices and silverware in the kitchen cabinets to the life jackets and fishing poles in the boat house were excellent. If you're looking for a quality place to have a vacation or getaway, with unmatched views and a place that just feels like a home, then my suggestion would be stay here. Without question this was our best family vacation ever.

Memorial Weekend Memory Maker

  • 5 of 5

This Twin Lake home was the perfect spot for our family to spend time together. So pleased that our cousins found this gem and that we could rent the lower unit to utilize the ample sleeping space. I loved that there were plenty of dining chairs and leaves to extend the dining table. Having space for everyone around the table at dinner was lovely!

The kitchen was so well supplied and items were easy to find. The home was very clean and comfortable and tastefully decorated. Even though the weather was cool, we had a blast canoeing and fishing. Our 14 year old caught a large mouth bass that will likely be the biggest he EVER catches.

Thank you for the lovely long weekend, Wendy!

Oh, and of course the lake is gorgeous but the landscaping should not go unmentioned. Beautiful plants and flowers everywhere!

Wonderful Lake Home

  • 4 of 5

My sweetie and I spent a long weekend at Wendy's lakeside home. It was the perfect spot for peace, quiet and relaxation. We cooked at the house and found virtually everything we needed in the well stocked kitchen. We also enjoyed the bbq. We visited in (what I assume is) a quieter time of year and I highly recommend doing so for couples looking for a peaceful getaway. The house is nicely updated and very comfortable.

Unbelievable great

  • 5 of 5

Everything possible was provided. The views and lots of seating options for games and meals. We took lots of stuff up that we didn't need to bring like spices, games, water toys. Neighbors were friendly and directions perfect. It was close to Coeur d'lene, Silverwood and Sandpoint. You could stay there and be happy or sight see. We rented both floors but could see that it would be possible to only do one floor and still have fun. We had a dog, and she was safe and happy..

Clean quite get away on the lake with room for many and still close to ammenities

  • 4 of 5

We had a group of nine and there was plenty of room for everyone. The house was organized and very easy to live in for our stay. The upper floor gets warm but the lower floor stayed cool even during the hottest parts of the day. The canoe that was supplied got plenty of use along with swimming in the lake almost every day of our stay. The back yard was a peaceful quite place to relax and play games on the lawn. Not to far to go for day trips to Coeur D'alene or Silverwood and two grocery stores are within 15 minutes. Lastly there is plenty of space to park four or five vehicles and we would definitely stay here again.
