Overview

Northern Idaho House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 6, covered dock, 10 watercraft included, pets OK

Our two Hayden Lake homes are located in Northern Idaho, 8 miles North of Coeur d' Alene, ID, and 40 miles east of Spokane, WA. You can pack up the kids, stop at the store and move on in to your vacation home at Hayden Lake. Not only does a breathtaking mountain and waterfront view await you but a comfy 2 bedroom home with a fully equipped kitchen featuring a popular open-floor plan. Whoever does the cookin' will also enjoy still being a part of whatever family activities are going on while drinking in the fabulous view. The kids will love their very own digs in our optional bunkhouse and even bring friends (sleeps 6).

Day times will be filled with swimming off your own private rock or the dock and sunning on the spacious mid-deck. There are numerous watercraft and land toys for adults and kids and lots of room to enjoy group activities or just kick-back and relax. Deck eating facilities, just off the kitchen, provide for BBQing and group food fests. Evening walks in 14 acres of private forest, deck sitting, riding the Sea cycle, fishing from the pontoon boat, paddle boat, 3 kayaks, 3 stand-up paddle boards or 17 ft 3 person canoe , or a skinny dip are great ways to round out the day and then sleep like a baby in the awesome quietness that only the lake and forest can provide.

Enjoy super fishing off the dock or with the Sea cycle or the pontoon boat. There have been consistent catches of 14-16 inch Kokanee (Landlocked sockeye salmon), trout, bass, northern pike and crappie.

Prefer a little less action and a little more serenity for fishing, cruising or just relaxing, consider June or September. Some of the best weather conditions and peaceful times can be experienced during Spring or the early Fall.

An added benefit to the beautiful Spring and Fall is our rates are considerably lower than the high season so you can enjoy an economical, quality stay.

Reserve early, as many do enjoy this time period at Hayden Lake.

See our companion listing on VRBO #398357

About Bob Gerend

We have been retired for 12 years and have seen 4 generations, including our parents, enjoy this much loved location. We have always been big on family-centered activities and water sports such as water skiing and swimming as has our whole family. Our best memories are of the times we had being together as a family at the lakehome having fun. Now that everyone is growing up and employment calls, we are not at Hayden quite as much as we once were. This is where you and your family come in and take up where we left off.

Bob Gerend purchased this house in 1986

Why Bob Gerend chose Northern Idaho

It's been in the family 58 years . The original house was replaced about half way through that time. Since then, various improvements have been made each year. It has become what you see now.

What makes this house unique

The best part is the privacy to have a great time together without any muss or fuss. There is something to suit every member of the family. It's even better than home in many ways--not fancy but very comfy-with outstanding views and is on one of the very best lakes in the northwest. Super fishing June-Sept.

Another amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

We just arrived home from our second stay at the Gerends lake cabin on Hayden Lake. And once again...too wonderful for words. We spent many hours just lounging on the huge wrap around deck, barbecuing, entertaining friends, and soaking in the truly incredible lake view spread out in front of us. In fact, before we left, we both just stood on the deck, silent, I know both thinking the same thing: "I don't want to forget this view." It's a truly rejuvenating spot, and you just can't visit without feeling wonderful. There are even MORE water toys than our last visit, which I didn't think was possible! We both used the SUP boards, the canoe, the Seacycle, the paddle boat, and misc. other items that were available. I don't think we could have worked our way through all of the water toys in a week's time! They have a wonderful little sandy beach cove, with stairs to access it, and we loved throwing floaties for our dog from there. There's also a huge rock to jump from, and just so many great things to do, including hiking up behind the cabin. We thoroughly enjoyed our visits with Jeanne, the onsite manager. She is wonderful! She checked in on occasion to make sure we had everything we needed, which was so nice. The home is so well stocked, it's almost unbelievable. Right down to clips to hold on the outdoor tablecloth! My husband asked if I brought those. I said "Nope! The Gerends have thought of everything!" The home is clean, comfortable, and has everything you will need for your stay. Should you need to run into town, it's less than 20 minutes away. This cabin is wonderful! We can't recommend it highly enough. We look forward to our next visit!

Peaceful and Serene Lakefront Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, our parents from out of state and our chocolate lab had the pleasure of spending five nights at this Hayden Lake retreat in June. The house is clean and well equipped with everything you might need, from a fully functioning kitchen with all the accessories to a washer and dryer and gas barbeque. The view from the living room looks straight out to the lake with floor to ceiling windows and we spent many hours relaxing, chatting and enjoying the view. There are numerous water toys and flotation devices down on the dock that are available for use and evening fishing from the dock is a great way to round out a relaxing day. The house has a big deck also facing the lake with two gas bbq's, lounge chairs and plenty of seating for outside entertaining. The location is quiet even with boats zipping by on the lake and in the early evening you'll hear the kids singing from the church camp across the lake. There are plenty of grocery stores, gas stations, and a WalMart in the town of Hayden if you need supplies or a fishing license, it's about a 20 minute drive back around the lake to get to town. The owners are very responsive and easy to work with and there is a local property manager who checks in to see if everything is ok and if you need anything. She's very informative about the area if you have any questions. If you're looking for fancy, you won't find that here. It's a house in the woods where you can relax and rejuvenate. Clean, comfortable and quiet. You will not be disappointed with this lakeside rental.

Lovely

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, clean home with a wonderful view. We had a relaxing and quiet stay. The decks out side by the lake were amazing - but because they are quite high off the ground, wouldn't be safe for small children. I would suggest an update to the cookware.

Owner's Response: We are glad you had a good time and are looking forward to having your family with us again. We have added new larger and more comfortable futons in living rooms of both lakehomes and are installing steps to give you better access to our private beach by the diving rock.

awesome place with an awesome lake

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd year at this property and we had another great week. The canoe, paddle board, sea cycle, kayaks & all other water toys were used to their max. The weather was great!

The beds are very comfortable & the kitchen well stocked. The kids are out on the water from sun up to sun down.

We are returning again next year & anticipate another perfect vacation. We still give it 11 out 10 & you can't get any better then that.

We always appreciate Jeanne coming to check in on us & taking care of our needs. We had a problem with some barking dogs during the day & she had that taken care of immediately.

I would not hesitate to recommend this cabin to anyone.

Thanks again Bob for another great vacation. We look forward to returning to our usual time slot next year.

This is the place!

  • 5 of 5

The Gerends are super nice people with 2 great cabins next to each other on the east side of Hayden Lake. Next year we'll rent them both and bring both sides of the family! It wasn't clear from the writeup that the cabins share an U-shaped dock but it's very large so worked out fine with our neighbors. The dock highlights are all the water toys and a massive rock that kids can climb up and jump into the water. The cabin itself is well-appointed and cozy, the king-sized beds were very comfortable, and the wraparound deck is phenomenal -- plenty of seating, great views of the lake and sunsets, and thankfully not a single mosquito! We had never spent time on Hayden before so this is not a knock on the cabin, but it is very busy and popular lake. Tons of young people on big power boats cranking music, and there is a big church camp across the way with lots of celebrating throughout the day and into the evening. If you are looking for a quiet lake experience, fall is probably a better time to stay at this cabin. But if you have kids or don't mind a lot of activity on the water, this is the place!

Note to people who fish: we scouted out the lake pretty well, turns out the best fishing is right smack in the middle of the lake straight out from the dock. Despite the heat wave, we caught huge crappies, a few nice trout, and even a big northern pike (all on Rapalas). The kids caught lots of nice-sized bluegills right off the dock using a single salmon egg on the end of a hook.

Thank you Pat & Bob for a wonderful stay!
