About David Blevins

The cottage is family owned property and we enjoy sharing it with others.

David Blevins purchased this cottage in 2011

Why David Blevins chose Coeur d'Alene Lake

We looked for five years until this perfect location appeared. A guest put it this way."It's a sliver of life on a lake". The views, water depth, dock and unpretentious home capped the sale.

What makes this cottage unique

Sitting with a good book on the balcony, listening to the young people play, having a camp fire, boating to dinner across the lake, taking friends tubing or just a pleasure boat ride and enjoy all the beauty. Meandering down the path way munching on thimble berries is a fun experience.

5-bar cellular coverage from all major carriers, WiFi, Fire pit, private dock, Grass to water's edge, Large deck, Bedroom balcony, Paddle boat Please be aware of the following "features" that may impact your decision to stay at our cottage: * There are approx. 100 steps on the trail from the parking area to the house. We recommend bringing or renting a boat for easier access and more FUN! * The house is on a lake-water system. We have the UV filter system tested periodically, but we can't guarantee it's effectiveness. Goose-poop happens, so bring bottled water for drinking if that worries you. * The bedrooms have open partition walls under a cathedral ceiling. Bring earplugs if anyone in your party snores. * The 2nd bathroom is in the detached outbuilding by the deck. Very convenient for showering after playing in the lake, but not so great for late-night visits.

Beautiful views and super cute place

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy with this place super cute inside and loved the decks. The views from the two front bedrooms upstairs were incredible. It had everything we needed and was very clean. The paddle boat was a huge hit with everyone:) We all loved the dock, had a blast swimming, jumping off and fishing on it. The owner David was amazing very attentive to our needs. They had lemon Poppy seed muffins and a very nice welcoming note for us I would recommend this place to anyone. The steps were a bit of a challenge hiking up and down unloading things thank goodness we had 10 of us:) Thanks for an amazing vacation.

The perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable house. Perfect location on the lakeshore. Sun on the dock and grass area, but mostly shaded near the house. Great for our family with different sunning needs. Waking up to that view is simply indescribable. Very friendly and accommodating hosts. We would definitely and easily return here.

Great house on the water!

  • 5 of 5

Our first time in the area. Special place we discovered. Just me and my wife stayed at the Cottage for 5 nights at the end of July. Breath taking views all around! House was fully stocked with anything you could possibly need. We enjoyed swimming off the dock, relaxing on the patio, grilling dinner and then sitting by a fire each night under the stars. We will be coming back.

Great vacation home!

  • 4 of 5

The Cottage on the Shore was a great vacation home for our family. We loved the access to the lake and the kids especially enjoyed fishing off of the dock and playing in the paddleboat. Having a boat to bring all of our gear to house level was extremely helpful and the stairs from the parking lot to the house were as advertised. The home was well stocked and the owners are great! Our family has rented numerous homes and have never had an owner care as much about our stay. We had a great time!

We had a great relaxing time at the Cottage, the cottage is well taken care of and is well equipped with supply's and fully loaded kitchen (NOT FOOD). Like the way things a re labeled to make it easy to find stuff. Good and clean, every place has it pros and cons, I would recommend to rent a boat to make it easyer to bring in supplys. The stairs are good work out but makes for some great exercise when you first arrive and it is time to depart. Great view and even seen all the fire works from across the lake. 4 STARS
