About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

We looked for years for this wonderful lake and house!!

Our lake front family home sits at the end of a quiet bay near Sunset Beach, known for its great fishing. Situated on the east side of Hayden Lake, our home is far enough away from town to feel rural and secluded yet close enough to Hayden and Coeur d’ Alene for convenient shopping for supplies at a variety of stores like Costco, Albertsons, or Wal-Mart.

The gentle slope from home down to the beach with west facing exposure means long summer days in the sun enjoying all the outdoor amenities our home has to offer including – private beach and boat dock, three kayaks, paddleboat, corn hole game, numerous inner tubes, beach chairs, outdoor fire pit, barbecue, picnic table, and outdoor shower.

Young children especially like playing down by the beach in our full-size dollhouse/clubhouse with two bunk beds inside.

We love lingering over evening meals on the expansive porch overlooking the lake and sunset beyond.

Inside amenities include Jacuzzi tub, Internet service, two TVs, DVD player, VHS player, ping-pong table, board games, and a large collection of books and puzzles.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a stainless steel oven, microwave, two refrigerators, toaster, coffee maker, and Kitchen Aid mixer.

Sleeping accommodations have flexibility with space for 8 -10 people. The master bedroom is on the entry-level with a king size bed and adjoining bathroom. Also on the entry-level is a den/office with desk, printer and scanner and pull out futon queen size bed.

The lower level of the house has two bedrooms each with queen size beds. The very large utility room is furnished with a trundle bed, additional futon, and washer and dryer. The downstairs den has a queen size pull out sleeper couch. The downstairs bathroom has two sinks and a tub shower. Just outside is an outdoor shower built at the forest edge.

Hayden Lake, with 40 miles of shoreline is free of crowds and has plenty of coves and inlets making it a great lake for waterskiing, jet skiing, sailing and fishing. It is shallow enough to be warm in the summer. For those of us who hate cold water, you can swim in the lake without a wet suit throughout the summer months.

Boats are available for rental at Hayden Marina on the lake. There are two public boat launch ramps. Honeysuckle Beach is at the southwest end of the lake and Sportsmen Access is at the northeast end of the lake.

Your dogs are welcome to join you on your vacation at our home for an additional fee.


The town of Hayden is 45 minutes by car due east from Spokane, Washington International Airport, a small comfortable airport with direct flights from many cities across the United States.

Coeur d’ Alene, a charming nearby city with its larger lake, historic main street, arts festivals, and great restaurants is about 30 minutes from our home.

This area of northern Idaho it is also known for over 50 great golf courses and Silverwood Amusement Park is about 45 minutes due north.

For winter fun, Schweitzer Mountain, Idaho’s foremost ski area is located about 1 ½ hours to the north just outside of Sandpoint, Idaho.

Please come and enjoy our wonderful home.

More than expected!!

  • 5 of 5

I met the owners in my place of business where they were buying items for their lake house and they told me how the rent it out when they are not there. They were so passionate about it, we decided to rent it for a family event.

All I can say is WOW, the pictures do not show the complete beauty of the house or the property. It was the best rental house vacation we have ever had for all ages and some with disabilities. We had friends come from Spokane with their boats for the day and they fell in love with the place also, we will be coming back.

I was here with two other writers for a writing retreat for five days. The accommodations are spacious. The large individual rooms offer privacy, while the homey common rooms are great to share meals and stories. With spectacular views, we walked and hiked the many trails and roads around the lake. There is plenty of room for families. We kayaked one morning and enjoyed the calmness of the lake. It was a relaxing, picturesque place to unwind, enjoy scenery, and pursue a variety of activities. I would recommend it for families and other groups, large and small. We will definitely return.

A True Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This home has more room and is even nicer than the pictures. Two families had plenty of room. We brought our boat and scooters and totally enjoyed our time. It was one of those rare times when I felt I got a true vacation. After boating around the whole lake, we felt that this location was among the best on the whole lake. All the little "extras" like the boat, kayak and floaties were a nice addition. The owners were very nice and communicated well.

Fantastic lake front home...

  • 5 of 5

This home lived up to our expectations and beyond! Located in a serene little bay with lots of privacy. The paddle boat and kayak were a real kit with all of us....grandparents and adult children with grandkids! We also rented a ski boat from a company not on the lake, KJ Watersports and they were great.... Delivered the boat to the lake with all the gear that we requested. And then came to pick it up from the lake. Much more affordable than the marina rentals on the lake! The outdoor shower was awesome... Would love to go back every year but it is so far away from San Diego. Owners were very helpful with any questions we had. Highly recommend this beautiful home away from home!😊 All the other reviews were right on!!!

Owner's Response: We are always happy to hear that our home lived up to expectations of our guests and even happier to hear that expectations were surpassed. Thanks for the reference about boat rentals. We weren't aware of KJ Watersports and can now pass the information on to other guests.

Relaxing, fun, and thoroughly enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I gathered here from different parts of the county to reconnect and spend some time together after too many years of being apart. Rick and Jan were friendly and attentive in their email and phone conversations, and with this being my first VRBO experience, were patient and knowledgeable as they helped me through the process. When the first lady arrived ahead of the rest of us, she texted: "This place is so awesome! Hurry up!" She did not over-state in the least. The home was neat and unassuming from the road entrance, but then it went to amazing as soon as we walked in the door.

We loved the big & open living room, dining room, kitchen, and deck where we spent most of our time when we weren't on/in the lake or sunning/fishing on the grass and dock. We didn't even use the big living area downstairs! It was cloudy and drizzly during the mornings and afternoons except for one day, so we spent that day outside and in the water as long as possible. The water temp was okay even that early in the summer. We really enjoyed the kayak and peddle boat too! There are lawn chairs and tubes for using outside, and the afternoon on the lawn enjoying the sun and the lake and the easy conversation was just a little bit of what it's all about. And even on the chilly and slightly drizzly mornings, taking the kayak out on the calm, quiet water is a peaceful way to start the day and appreciate the beauty in life, which this property has in abundance. We also saw deer, heron, osprey, eagles, loons...

Everything that we needed was in the kitchen and we prepared some wonderful meals together. The gas fireplace was a bit of a challenge, but the caretaker and owners did everything they could to get it working as soon as possible. (A very minor ripple in paradise.) Everyone said they slept well except the gal who was in the far basement bedroom who said the bed wasn't comfy so she used the trundle mattress on the floor in there instead. The other two beds and even the bed in the laundry room were very comfortable though.

The only thing missing was a designated fire pit, but I wouldn't be surprised if one hasn't been put in by now. I was told that an outdoor shower was built right after we left and we all think that will be quite a bonus for the next time we visit. All in all this is a beautiful and welcoming home in an amazing setting. We enjoyed our stay even more than we anticipated, and it's unanimous that we want to return in 2016!

Mother nature at her best!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived about 4:30 on Saturday evening, walked over the front threshold right into a scarlet sunset! It captured our breath and hearts. After quietly closing the front door, we were drawn to the window, where we stood for 30 minutes enjoying its beauty. It wasn't until the sunset had completely faded that we retrieved the luggage from the car. The rest of our stay was an extension of the sunset moment, peaking with a light snow flurry as we prepared to depart. Mother nature had sprinkled us with her powder sugar sweetness.

The home is well designed, accommodating both large and small groups. All necessary amenities were available. The owners are a pleasure to work with. Business transactions were easy and seamless. We frequent many vacation rentals throughout the country and this is by far the best.
