About The Owner

I started doing vacation rentals to keep our lake home on Hayden Lake in the family. I have loved the interaction with my guests and added a second home, Riverview in the Pines to our vacation properties several years ago. I retired this year, and my first project was to finish the apartment I had dreamed of. It is on our property of 3 acres with great access to a wonderful part of Coeur d Alene - Cougar Gulch.

It is my greatest hope that your time in 'the nook' will be special and become a great memory.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2011

Why The Owner chose Northern Idaho

I have lived in Coeur d Alene most of my life. It is a unique area and I love sharing my town and my homes with people coming for vacation.

What makes this apartment unique

Wander our meadow, relax by the fire pit, explore our garden. Watch wildlife enjoying the creek and pond.

We are close to the lake, Cougar Nature Preserve and all the events in downtown Coeur d'Alene, Come home to peace and quiet in a rural setting after your activities for the day.

Since I am a long time resident - I am happy to share with you the things that make Coeur d'Alene special. I can recommend restaurants, beaches and activities that will meet your own personal requirements for a great vacation.

In the woods, yet close to town

  • 5 of 5

Excellent value and location. It was only 5 min from town but had a woodsy feel. In fact, watch for deer on the road. Great for the two of us. Can sleep more, but it might be crowded. Large kitchen and dining. Smaller living area with futon as a couch. Well equipped and host lives next door if you need anything. I gave it 5 stars because we like rustic and unique. If you are looking for fancy and luxurious, you need to look in a different price range :).

Oasis in the trees

  • 5 of 5

This place was a gem hidden away in the trees away from the hustle and bustle of the city but only 5 minutes from the lake for water activities. We had 5 adults in our party. The futon was a little uncomfortable and the loft would only really be good for younger children that are more able to climb the bars up to the loft. However there was a large nice kitchen with a washer and dryer and a kitchen table to eat at. Also had a balcony that was enjoyable. Diana had baked fresh cookies and had a great suggestion for dinner. Overall for the one night we made it work and enjoyed our visit.

Excellent rental

  • 5 of 5

Very affordable rental in CdA. It is quiet and cozy. We stayed for 5 nights for the Ironman event, and was perfect for what we needed. Very close to transition (about 5 min drive).

A nice getaway yet close to town

Close enough to Silverwood for us, and the place was clean and peaceful.

Private and cozy

  • 4 of 5

We stayed three nights and really enjoyed the privacy and homey feel of the "Nook." It was like our own little hideaway in the woods. Even our 21 year old son loved it. The only reason for 4 stars was the lack of a creek. I had really hoped for that. It was a little more like an overgrown ditch that was dry. Beautiful place though.

Quiet & Cozy

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a secluded and comfortable stay, The Nook is it! My husband and I wanted to visit Coeur d'Alene but didn't want the big resort experience or price. The Nook fit exactly what we were looking for; a quiet spot, off the beaten path, but close enough to visit town, cozy enough for two, with the option to go to town for a meal or fix something and stay in. The property is very clean with a comfortable bed and cozy futon to watch a movie on. Diana had clear instructions and recommendations for visiting town. All of our necessities were met and then some; exactly what we needed!

Unique location, rural but close to Coeur d'Alene, Overlooks creek and meadow. Feed the birds from your deck. The apartment is cozy and well equipped and the available space is expanded by the outside fire pit, picnic table, 5 swings in the trees for children to play, roam and wander. Loft is a wonderful area for kids. I call it a 'camping' spot - 2 twin beds and a projector that makes stars and shooting stars with clouds on the ceiling when it is dark. Kids love it!
