About the property

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.

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 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.

This place is a jewel! Beautiful views, clean home and fun toys for the lake!

  • 5 of 5

This home was clean and neat. It has everything you need to have a great time on the lake. We were able to have family over for a BBQ and the dock allowed us to to have easy access to the lake. I wouldn't change a thing. We had a wonderful time and we are looking forward to coming back again.

It was great, beautiful and serene.

  • 4 of 5

The beds were comfortable, the view spectacular, and the property manager nearby and very kind and helpful. She came to check on us after losing power during a thunderstorm. The only drawback was that the paddle boards are not actual or adult paddle boards. Not sure what they are but none of us could balance on them and we've paddle boarded a lot. The sea cycle or aqua bikes were awesome though! We had tons of fun in and on the water!! I would definitely recommend this place for a romantic getaway or family vacation.

We didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Gerend home! We took full advantage of all the water toys, fishing, swimming and the beautiful view this home provides. If you are looking for the Ritz Carlton this is not for you. This is a very clean, well kept lake property in the woods that provides a very spoiled camping trip! I was pleasantly surprised by what the home provided including crock pot! Just pack your food and show up! Our daughters were able to go fishing for the first time and the 10 year old caught a 17" small mouth bass, which we had for lunch! We will definitely be back! Wonderful memories made!

Owner's Response: Pat and I are glad your family had a good time. Bet your 10 year old daughter got a kick out of catching the 17" bass. Remember, our fall 30% off summer rates are also in play Sept and Oct. Bob

Wonderfull view, lots of water toys, great for relaxing or playing. We were able to to spend 4 days with our older kids and one day just the two of us. Brought our boat along and it was great having the dock right there.

The beds were really comfortable and there was everything you could need in the kitchen. We will defiantly be back.

Wonderful Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

The location and views are amazing! The house was a perfect cozy spot for a family. Deck was great to lay out- and the water toys were great fun! The water is on the colder side for a swim. My favorite was relaxing in the hammock! Very comfortable king beds. Owners really pay attention to details- providing the little things like stuff to do a load of laundry and dishes. There are movies, games, and books inside so always something fun to do for the family. Kitchen is well labeled and equipped for cooking. Long drive in around the lake so definitely stop for groceries on the way in and then just relax!
