David Gencarella purchased this House in 2006
Why David Gencarella chose Post Falls
This home is the perfect location - the 5 forested acres with 200+ feet of water makes you feel like you are away from civilization - but its only 3 miles to downtown!

Thanks Gencarella ‘s
Tha home was terrific; the entertainment amenities unlimited; we were impressed with everything.
We were over-whelmed with the size, amenities, comfort, condition, and location.
Large, beautiful home PERFECT for families with kids!
We stayed for a week in August 2018 and had the times of our lives. We (mom/dad and our 3 kids ages 12, 10 and 8) stayed there with another family with three kids (ages 12, 9 and 6). We also brought our nanny to help out, so 11 total occupants. This home is absolutely a shangri-la for kids....SO much for them to do. If they weren't casting fishing poles of the dock, they were swimming and pushing each other in the river, playing on the trampoline, swinging on the swingset, playing pickleball on the regulation court, or rowing around in a canoe or on a paddleboard. If they needed a break from the sun, they played pool/foosball in the house or "pop a shot" in the garage. Each evening was a "smores" party after dinner in either the outdoor fireplace or firepit on the lawn. For the adults, it was equally terrific. The bedrooms and baths are plentiful and spacious, the beds all very comfortable and the air conditioning kept everything perfectly cool when we got a spell of 100 degree weather! The kitchen had every appliance and utensil you could ever need, and the outdoor grill got a lot of use from us. The large common kitchen table doubled for meals, and then card games in the evening. The commercial ice maker in the garage guaranteed we never had a warm drink. The home is only a 30 minute drive from the Spokane airport, and if you have friends at Gozzer Ranch or anywhere on the east side of the lake, it's a 10-15 minute boat ride. There is plenty of space to moor boats and jet skis. The owner met us when we arrived and gave us a run through on everything. Suffice it to stay this was one of the most memorable family vacations for us and our kids, and we would absolutely return next year! It was an OUTSTANDING experience.

Heaven on Spokane River - Peaceful and Exciting
We loved this place.
The experience starts from the street. From the entrance, you cannot see the home. You drive down a winding road to a mansion next to the Spokane River. Once you enter you notice the mosaic tiles of a deer on the entry way. Then you notice the A-frame 30+ foot vaulted ceiling accompanied by a large fire place. You then see a large backyard lawn with a trampoline, kids house with a slide, canoe and kayaks, and a dock with a boat and 3 jet skis as requested on the Spokane River.
The multi-level home has a huge kitchen with all the amenities, 2 convection oven which I enjoyed. The area is large enough to entertain the family and friends while I cooked.
The high ceiling in every room give a very spacious and free feel. There are 5 large bedrooms, one on the 1st floor and 4 on the 2nd floor. The Master bedroom is huge. It is bigger than the first home I lived it. How time has changed
The best part about the house my son loved was the fire pole from the 2nd floor to the kitchen. He loved being called for meals and coming down the pole right into the kitchen. My wife loved seeing our son come down, which reminded of her late father who was a fireman.
For a large home, the water was hot throughout the house. Also the AC worked great. The temperature got up in the 90s, which was unusual for Post Falls, but did not know it while inside the house.
Our family and friends really enjoyed going jet skiing. We also enjoyed taking the boat out towing the kids on a raft. Also enjoyed going to Cedars and docking it right at the restaurant. Got to try their cedar plank salmon. It was delicious. We also enjoyed taking the boat to the Couer D Arlene Resort for lunch and dinner. Did not worry about traffic or parking. Return sunset cruise was always beautiful.
We also enjoyed the large fire place on the back side of the original fire place. The kids loved roasting S mores every night. There were plenty of chopped wood and skewers for the marshmallows.
We had an issue with the TV and called the owner. They responded quickly and sent someone out to the house within 30 minutes. All transactions with the owner were very professional and timely.
We loved our experience, we will be back next year.
serene and welcoming home on beautiful Lake Coeur D'Alene
We had a terrific stay at this property. Lovely home, giant kid-friendly yard and beautiful grounds. The house is big, lots of rooms for large groups (we had 5 children and 8 adults). It is a really comfortable space, the kitchen was great to cook in, the living room large and inviting. The back yard was entirely awesome for the kids: huge grassy area, trampoline, play set, volleyball, fire pits, beach area - it had it all. Dock easily accessible and big. The pickle ball court was really fun to play on. Bedrooms all large and really comfortable. What we noticed most was the lovely quiet at night. The Centennial Trail is minutes away and we spent ample time biking it. Town is a few minutes away via car, but we boated most of the time to the lake (about an easy 10 minute ride). The house was in spotless condition, very clean, and our host was totally available and easy to work with. We have stayed at lots of properties, and we would HIGHLY recommend this house for a lake vacation for a large group - it was simply stunning!
200+ feet of water frontage, 7000+ s/f luxury home completed in 2006. Elegantly appointed and nested on 5 flat, forested acres, with spa, orchard and garden. Within 1 hour from 4 ski resorts.
Uniquely, our home is just a 10 minute boat ride to Lake CDA, on the Spokane River offering full boating pleasure on both river and lake while providing our guests with superior skiing, tubing and wake boarding conditions... or enjoy a quiet boat ride or fishing on the backside of the island 500 feet from our private dock. Feels much like Disney's Jungle cruise!
Located only 2 miles from the intersection of Highways 90 and 95, it is arguably the most beautiful and centrally located waterfront home in the CDA area. Minutes to world class golf courses including CDA famous 'floating green' at the CDA Resort. Only an hour to 3 great ski resorts. Spokane Airport is within 30 minutes. Shop downtown CDA - just 7 minutes boat or car
