Cozy Lake Front Cabin With Separate Bunk House And Private Beach And Dock

Bedrooms 2
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 - 6 nights


About the property

Cabin 1 Bedroom Full Bath, Bunk House 1 Bedroom And Full Bath.

This wonderful retreat is located on the eastside of Priest Lake, near the Indian Creek Campground. The knotty pine cabin boasts a roomy kitchen with large window looking out at the lake a dishwasher, microwave and espresso maker. In the Fall the wood stove heats up the cabin nicely. There is a king size bed and full bath. Step outside onto the lake facing deck and enjoy eating al fresco or watching the sunset. If what you are looking for is a place to relax and perhaps take a nap you might try the hammock among the trees. In the evening there is a large fire pit with bench seating around, a favorite place to roast s'mores.

Just a few yards from the cabin is the "Bug's Ear", a wonderfully converted bunk house that has windows facing the lake and from which you can hear the water lapping the shore. The Bug's Ear has two full size beds, a full bath with a tub, washer and dryer and a small refrigerator for drinks.

The private dock is a great place to start your day with a cup of coffee. The sun bathes the deck and the water is usually calm and crystal clear. A market umbrella provides shade for those wanting less sun, and the beach is a great place for children to play while parents look on.

There are two Kayaks, a canoe and various float toys available for guests use.

The camp store at nearby Indian Creek Campground is a nice little hike, or short drive, for basic provisions and great ice cream. The Leonard Paul store in Coolin has been around since 1906. It is about a 25 min drive and is an old fashioned general store with gift shop, sandwich shop and ice cream counter in addition to groceries, liquor and wine, and lattes.

If you want a dinner out there are several restaurants around the lake, two of our favorites are Cavanaughs and Blue Diamond, or if you have a boat a quick trip across the lake to Elkins or Hills Resort for fine dining and huckleberry daiquiris.

There are loads of trails for hiking with gorgeous vistas that can be reached by walking right out the cabin door or by car. During July and August you might discover some huckleberries along the path.

We love love loved our stay! The bed in the main house...I haven't gotten it out of my head. It was so cozy. (We didn't use the other beds but they looked cozy and super cute.) The owners are outstanding. 100 % accommodating and kind. We will absolutely return there. You will not be disappointed.

Lovely intriguing summer house.

  • 4 of 5

The sense of an old cottage on the lake, great kitchen, well equipped, comfortable beds and hammock. Dock and kayaks were enormous fun. Could use screens on door and windows in bunkhouse. We had a perfect time--

Recommended! A traditional Priest Lake cabin.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed four days in La Casita in July 2016. Loved every minute, whether the sun was shining and we were playing in the water, or we were watching the rain from our cozy fire. Recommended for multi-generational families, as it would be a bit too cozy for 6 adults otherwise. The bunch house additions are great, and the fire pit is a great place for s'mores and campfire stories. Lots of floatation devices and toys provided, such as canoes and kayaks to allow exploring in a peaceful stretch of the lake. We struggled with the bunk house door and even locked ourselves in a couple times! Shelley was timely, responsive and helpful in making the arrangements.

The property is more beautiful in person!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful week at this property. It is a family friendly environment with plenty of activities including kayaks, a tree house, swimming, floating, and bike trails nearby. It was on a quiet part of the lake with beautiful views from all the windows and a sandy beach. The owners were wonderful to work with and had excellent communication. Many small details were thought of and we were more than comfortable. Our kids loved having the bugs ear bunkhouse to themselves and our only suggestion would be to have had a door knob for kids to access. That being said the kids reported this was the best vacation ever and we recently went to Disneyland. This is such a lovely get away! We can't wait to come back!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you and your family had a wonderful time and felt at home at La Casita. It sounds like you and your family fully experienced Priest lake and all that it has to offer. You have been gracious guests and we are delighted that you are interested in coming back! Thank you for your suggestion, we have had the same thought and are currently working on installing a door knob on the Bug's Ear for easier access. Enjoy the rest of your summer!
