About Douglas Evans

My wife and I purchased this cabin to enjoy with our two sons. We love lake Couer d'Alene but can not always enjoy the cabin as much as we would like to.

Douglas Evans purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Douglas Evans chose Coeur d'Alene Lake

We chose Carlin Bay because of the location on the lake. It has beautiful views with sun almost all day.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin sits very close to the lake and has a seawall and private boat ramp. It is also just a few minutes drive to Gozzar Ranch golf coarse and if you have boat, a 10 minute boat ride to Black Rock across the lake. The bay is perfect for water skiing, wake boarding, & tubing.

Perfect Lake House

  • 5 of 5

We thought this home was perfect for our family. This home easily accommodated my family of 8, including me and my husband, our 4 children and my parents. It was quiet and peaceful and the views are amazing. The location is perfect with close access to a boat launch and fuel. It's a quick trip to town by both car and boat. After playing all day, we enjoyed the fully equipped kitchen to cook in and the fire pits outside for s'mores. The home has TV and Wi-Fi, which is great not only for us adults, but also for our 3 teenagers and 1 tween. The deck has plenty of room for our whole family to sit and enjoy our meals and it is the perfect place for our morning coffee. Doug (the owner) is so easy to get a hold of and was very quick to respond to any questions. This house sits right off the highway, but it sits far enough away from the actual road, that it's super quiet. There are neighboring houses, but they sit far enough away that it still feels private. This part of the lake did not have a lot of water craft traffic which we preferred. I would recommend this home to anyone who is looking for a great vacation on the lake. The only drawback in my opinion is the steep driveway, which was not a big deal for our family, but it could be a problem for anyone with mobility issues. We stayed in this home last summer and have already reserved it again for this summer.

Great holiday

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The house was very clean and cozy. The satellite TV was a big hit when we were home in the evenings after a hard day of boating. The property is at a great location. Very close to the marina and boat launch and the water in front of the house was usually very calm so we could skii up until dark.

We would return to this house.

Private and Serene

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed the week we stayed here! The cabin is warm and cozy, with every room completely modernized (Wi-Fi, big screen TVs, updated bathrooms, etc.). The deck is wonderful and a perfect place to watch sunsets. With Carlin Bay just around the corner, it was easy to launch our boat and so convenient to have it docked just out the back door. The landscaping is amazing, with grassy patches for playing games or morning workouts. When not on the lake or enjoying the cabin, we hiked nearby Mineral Ridge and biked the Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes. We definitely have plans to return!

10 out of 10!

  • 5 of 5

My family was looking for a lake front property to have a summer vacation, and Doug's place was perfect! This was our first time using VRBO and I have nothing bad to say. We loved the layout of the place and spent most of our time on the deck, it has such a beautiful view. The dock was perfect, we left our boat in the entire time we were there. My family could not get over how clear and warm the lake was. Doug was extremely helpful, from telling us where to get groceries, to where to launch our boat, and the hot spots to eat. The house was very clean, and well stocked. All in all it was a 10 out of 10!

Joyful heatwave

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing!!!! Doug, your host is very accommodating. The kitchen was well stocked. The water was amazing and we loved the dive. The house seems very private. So much so that we might have even skinny dipped at night... The deck with the dining table was where we spent a lot of time. The sunsets were beautiful. The bedrooms are all cute and comfortable. The landscaping is also amazing. We also loved that the house was right at water level. We rented a boat, biked the hiawatha trail, hiked, went for ice cream in harrison and dinner in coeur d'alene, but spent the most time on the deck and in the water. We will return to this house!

Absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place to stay with your family! We absolutely fell in love with the house and the lake! The photos Doug provided are very accurate in capturing the beauty of the property. My teenagers can't wait to go come back and stay on the lake again! Doug was easy to work with and has done an outstanding job on the house and property! It has to be one of the best places to stay on the lake! Thanks Doug for making this one of the most memorable vacations for my family! We will definitely be back and will recommend your lake house to all of our friends and family!

Cabin is approximately 1 mile from Carlin Bay Marina. Great place to put your boat in the water and get gas. Carlin Bay also has a restaurant and bar.
