Spirit Lake LAKEFRONT Cabin - June/July/Aug 2017 Dates Still Available!

Bedrooms 1
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

Welcome to our inviting lakefront cabin! We have owned this 'little bit of paradise' since 1989 have shared many memorable moments with our friends and family members. We have decided to open our cabin up for rental to offset the cost of college for our two older daughters. Thus, your are offered the opportunity to enjoy our charming lakefront cabin! We hope that your family will make many memories at Spirit Lake just like ours has.

Although the cabin is small, it lives REALLY large, especially in the summer and can nicely accommodate 10, including kids. We have one bedroom with a queen size bed, a futon in the spacious living room (with views up the lake and to Mount Spokane) that folds down to a full size bed, one bathroom, a sleeping cabin that can sleep two on cots, and a small basement area that can sleep up to four on fold out thick mats. The basement area also has a separate bathroom: toilet and sink. The accommodations range is based on whether the persons staying are adults/teens or small children. There is a path that leads down to the lake from the cabin. The lakefront includes a dock with deep water access, a swim ladder, boat slip, and use of our canoe. The park-like yard by the cabin includes an outdoor fireplace (smores!), outdoor table and chairs (most of our meals are eaten here in the summer), and a hammock for reading or dozing. The bedroom of the cabin has a small TV with DVD while the living room has a flat screen TV with DVD player.

About Sheryl Rasmussen

We are the Rasmussen family: Eric & Sheryl and our girls. We have owned our Spirit Lake cabin since 1989, the year after we were married. Although we live in the Seattle area, Eric grew up in North Idaho.

Sheryl Rasmussen purchased this cabin in 1989

Why Sheryl Rasmussen chose Northern Idaho

A neighbor at the lake kindly offered the cabin/property to us for purchase and we have been more than blessed with it for more than 27 years. We have spent each summer here near Eric's parents enjoying family, friends and each other while participating in the rich variety of what North Idaho has to offer for recreation.

What makes this cabin unique

1) Best view on Spirit Lake: We look all the way west on the lake at the two islands and up to Mount Spokane.

2) Sun on the beach and dock through early evening: Some sites are located in a location that is shaded by late afternoon. Our beach and dock have summer sun past 7 pm. A longer day of fun on the lake!

3) We are located on the Nautical Loop Road which is between Twin Lakes and the town of Spirit Lake on Hwy 41. No need to drive the slow and winding road along the north side of the lake. Easy access to the town of Spirit Lake, Twin Lakes, Coeur D' Alene, and Spokane.

4) We are 11 miles from Silverwood! It takes only 10-15 minutes to get to Silverwood from our cabin!

5) Private setting: Amazing privacy for family fun or solitude.

6) Our dock is in a deep water access area. Swimmers can dive into the lake from the far side of the dock and boats can easily access the dock. Some parts of the lake have very shallow water for quite a distance from the beach/docks - ours is ideal for swimming and boating.

This was the second time we rented the property. As before, the experience was great. We've rented at different locations on Spirit Lake and this location is the best because of the deep water and new dock. The house worked perfectly for our family of 5 adults, 2 teens and a 7 year old. We'll be doing it again next year.

Lakeside living at its best 😄

  • 5 of 5

Probably the best location on Spirit Lake - the tiny town of spirit lake is just a short drive away, yet far enough to feel just the right amount of privacy/seclusion.

We spent most of our time outside paddle boarding the lake, fishing, sleeping in the hammock, bicycling nearby trails, paddling in the provided canoe and enjoying our evenings with a nice fire in the outdoor fireplace (after calling the local fire dept and making sure it was ok during the dry season).

Although we spent very little time inside, accommodations were clean and cozy, kitchen was well stocked and everything was well thought out to make for a very enjoyable stay. Would Definately recommend and look forward to additional future visits.

Clean, well kept and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

My family of 5 had a great time. Our kids are all under the age of 7 and it fit us well. We even had space to have the in-laws stay a couple nights. The location is great and the view is georgeous. It is a little bit of a hike to get down to the dock and with a pack and play and other kid equipment it can be pretty exhausting, but overall not bad.

Sheryl was easy to contact and reached out to ensure the trip was going well. This is a great place, especially for kids old enough to sleep in the separate downstairs sleeping room, and a Great Lake for fishing, boating, etc.

Amazing Views and Great Lake Access

  • 5 of 5

The home was easy to find and has adequate parking. The views from the front yard, living room, and bedroom are fabulous! The home is older and a bit small, but cozy and what you would expect from a lake cabin. It was perfect for my family of 3, as we spent the majority of our time down enjoying the lake. We did not use the additional basement or bunkhouse spaces during our stay, but they would be nice for a family traveling with older children. The switchback down to the lake was a bit too tight for getting our kayaks down, but luckily there is a boat ramp just a few houses down from the cabin that made getting our kayaks to the water easy work. The owner was very nice and responsive and stayed in great communication.

North Idaho provides outstanding beauty and activities during all seasons. Summer fun includes swimming and fishing on the lake from the dock. Bring your boat and/or jet skis for water skiing, tubing, and lake fishing. Farragut State Park (outstanding mountain bike trails) and Silverwood Theme Park/Boulder Beach Water Park are less than 10 miles away. Day trips to Sandpoint (45 minutes) and Coeur D' Alene (25 minutes) can include shopping, restaurants, the city beaches, and music under the stars at The Festival at Sandpoint. Summer mountain biking or huckleberry picking and winter snow skiing are only an hour away at Schweitzer Mountain near Sandpoint. North Idaho is a three season golf paradise and two courses are located less than 8 miles from Spirit Lake: Stoneridge Golf Course and Twin Lakes Golf Course. Many other golf courses are excellent options nearby including the renowned Coeur D' Alene Resort Golf Course, home of the world's only floating green. Downtown Spokane is only an hour away with restaurants, museums, and shopping.
