About David Gencarella

We vacationed through Coeur d' Alene with our family about 12 years ago...within 6 months we lived here and we've been enjoying it ever since!

David Gencarella purchased this house in 2006

Why David Gencarella chose Northern Idaho

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!

Amazing Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing vacation at this beautiful property. There was always something to do. The kids never once said they were bored. As parents this is priceless. Every morning was so peaceful as we sat out on the back patio sipping our coffee and taking in the breath taking view. The home was perfect for our entire family. So much fun! So many memories.

Breathtaking Home and Exceptional Service

  • 5 of 5

I booked this property on behalf of a colleague for his summer family reunion. The owner of the home has been an absolute pleasure to work with. Professional, efficient, responsive and accommodating. Seeing that I am making the arrangements on behalf of someone else, there are many questions that I need to have answered and David has gone above and beyond to respond quickly! David has gone above and beyond offering suggestions to local amenities and services, making personal recommendations and doing his own research to help assist getting what we need. Seeing that I am not familiar with this area, I have the utmost trust and confidence with what David has recommended due to his professionalism and flexibility. The home is beyond breathtaking and I look forward to booking this summer home for years to come!

Like a dream…everything was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for letting us stay at the Timber River Lodge! Your home was perfect! The perfect location – minutes from everything we needed, yet we felt like we were in a remote water-front haven. While we did spend time in town at the shops, movie theatres, and restaurants, most of our time was spent enjoying the beach, water, dock, boats, and sun! This is indeed a unique and magnificent property and home. Great toys, great living areas, and great hosts! Thank you…We hope to be back soon.

Ultimate Waterfront Vacation For My Family

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for the perfect waterfront spot for your family, you found it! My family and I vacation here each summer and always keep coming back! The setting is nearly indescribable - absolutely beautiful part of God's creation! We live in L.A. and my son's face lights up each year as we step out on the dock of this North Idaho jewel and board the jet ski or the boat! The water is perfect for all water sports - wake surfing, wake boarding, skiing, tubing or just playing in the shallow water right in front of the property. We've spent countless hours playing volleyball, croquet, and frisbee on the acre lawn between the water and the home. The setting is private and inviting.

The cooks in the group couldn't ask for more! The well-appointed gourmet kitchen is also warm and inviting, with marble counter tops and hardwood floors, a large double oven and warming drawer...not to mention to 2 refrigerators. There is a cozy kitchen nook for morning coffee, and a large dining table to accommodate large groups.

There are views from every room. And every room is spacious and inviting. They have 3 a/c systems so the home stayed very comfortable all week. Each bedroom has its own unique style, and every one has it own bathroom (there are 7 bathrooms in all!) We enjoyed playing pool and foosball in their loft, and ping pong in their oversized 4 car garage, and pickle ball outside.

Collecting the eggs each morning from the chicken house always seemed to be a favorite for some of the kids! The chickens were quite tame and could be picked up. We also picked fresh herbs from their vegetable and herb garden and fruit from their orchard.

There is so much to describe - too much! You will be as thrilled as we are if you choose this property!

Outstanding in every way!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have had more FUN! The home is beautiful, well equipped and is full of games and toys to keep all ages entertained for the entire week. Our family ranged from age 77 to 3 and there was something for EVERYONE. The property is beautiful and the home is lovely both inside and out. It was the perfect home for our 50th wedding anniversary with the whole clan. The owners were friendly and helpful in every way. We had so much fun that everyone wants to return again and make it an annual reunion!!!!! Would we recommend this property? ABSOLUTELY! It has our very highest recommendation. You will love it!

Great Week at an Amazing Home Right on the Water

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredibly lovely time in this spacious home right on the Spokane River. The house is large enough for my extended family of 12. Each individual family had their own space and bathroom and there were plenty of rooms throughout the home to have quiet reading time or a family board game.

The house boasts an large dock where we spent many hours of the day laying out, boating and fishing. Even better the house virtually every game you can imagine. There is a pool table, foosball table, ping pong table, shuffle billiards and pickle ball. We played volleyball and croquet and always had a "new" option of fun when we were not on the water.

The kitchen is a large chef's kitchen and has high end appliances so you can cook everything you do at home. Definitely give the panini press and double waffle maker a try! Even better, there is a second fridge/freezer in the garage which will help store your food for the week. We found no reason to go out to eat, because it was so easy and fun to cook for a large crew at the house.

Laundry was available on the first and second floors which all of us found super convenient and allowed us to pack light. For all those latte-lovers, there is a Starbucks 2 miles down the road and movie theater if you catch a rainy day.

We will be back. The Spokane River is the ideal place for a family boating vacation. We would choose the river over the lake every time. The owners make renting this home easy and convenient and are incredibly fair and honest.

Thanks for a great week!

Car: recommended

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
