About Linda & Tony

We were born and raised in the CDA area and have been property owners on the lake for over 18 years. We have our home in Spokane and have 2 grown children.

Linda & Tony purchased this house in 2005

Why Linda & Tony chose Coeur d'Alene Lake

I love Lake Coeurd'Alene and always dreamed of owning lake property. My dream came true 18 years ago. We love the warmth and sun so a home on the East side of the lake was perfect for us.

What makes this house unique

A perfect day at the lake starts with a quiet walk along the 300 foot private beach, followed by breakfast on the oversized deck looking south down the entire length of the lake. Watch for the resident bald eagle to pass by on his way to his fishing perch. The day continues with water sports or relaxing in one of 5 different areas from sand, grass, patio, deck or dock and all offer either sun or shade areas. Evening brings a beautiful sunset with a great glass of wine and BBQ. Finish the night with a bon fire and roasted marshmallows. Ahhhhh. . . . paradise.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an amazing time at the beautiful "cabin" or what we would call a home. The place was clean and beautifully funished. Very comfortable for our family. The view and sunsets were awesome with dinner coming late in the day as we were having to much fun in the late afternoopn sun. Thanks for a great summer vacation. We hope to return

Coeur d'Alene Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this Carlin Bay "cabin" for the past two years. We had such a fantastic experience last July we returned for another family vacation in July of 2013. The owners are great to work with and the amenities are outstanding. The lake is as clear and beautiful as you can imagine. The kids love it as much as much as the adults and are already asking if we can go back again next summer.

Top Notch Rental

  • 5 of 5

Could not have asked for a better place to stay. The house is immaculate and furnished with anything you could need to enjoy your stay. The pride of ownership explodes all over this house and the owners were so pleasant to work with and truly want you to enjoy yourself. Wishing our week with family didn't fly by as fast as it did. Certainly accessible and enjoyable for all members of our party aging from 1 year to 70 years. If still for rent for years to come we will be back each summer. Pictures do not do this place justice, breathtaking all around!

We stayed for a week in early October 2011...and it was the best! Location is great and views are stunningly beautiful. Rooms inside the house are so comfortable. The deck is amazing -- there's a terrific gas grill outside. The only problem you'll encounter is the depression that sets in after you have to leave. We most definitely want to do it again!
