All this is located at the base of Schweitzer Mountain, home of 4 STAR Schweitzer Mountain Ski Resort, Idaho's largest.

An easy scenic 37 mile drive down Hwy 95 will have you in beautiful Coeur d’ Alene, where you can golf at either the Coeur d’ Alene Resort Golf Course (Home of the World's Only Floating Green), or Hayden Lake Country Club.

About Teresa

We appreciate you considering our accommodations and are excited about sharing our home with you. We will strive to make your stay a pleasant, memorable experience.

Teresa purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Teresa chose Idaho

There's just no better place on earth to relax, unwind and spend precious time together, than at the water. When my father passed, my dream became to turn his cottage into a place where families, (ours included), could be together and have the time of their lives, in a beautiful wholesome setting with very little effort. We feel we have accomplished this. My father would be pleased.

What makes this cottage unique

Johnnie's Cottage is the perfect balance between a private secluded getaway and a sightseers paradise. Conveniently located just 1.5 paved miles from hwy#95.

We had a wonderful week at Johnnie's Cottage! Well maintained grounds with plenty of outdoor activities! We loved how they paid attention to meeting the needs of smaller children. The dock with canoe, paddle boards, kayak's and paddle boat was so much fun! We would love to come back!

Another great week!

  • 5 of 5

We had another very enjoyable week at Johnnie's Cottage in July 2015. The kids enjoyed all the water activities and we enjoyed the covered deck overlooking the water once again. There was a fire ban on so we couldn't use the amazing fire pit overlooking the lake, but the deck up top was a great place for everyone to hang out. The cottage has EVERYTHING you could ever want, and if you find something you need and they don't have, Lee and Teresa are just a phone call away and are SO accomodating. We enjoyed a day at Silverwood Theme Park again but other than that, we didn't leave the cottage. Our kids talk about our vacation in Idaho all year long...we can't wait for summer 2016! Thanks again Lee and Teresa, you guys are the best!

Owner's Response: HI Jaime and all: It sure is a blessing to have such wonderful families look forward to coming back to enjoy our cottage. I can't help think about my father, who Johnnie's Cottage is named after, as he absolutely loved families and this is exactly what he would want...to enable folks to have a special place to have fun and spend precious time together. We really appreciate your loyalty. If there is anything we can do, you know we are here for you. We look forward to seeing you all again. Have a blessed Christmas and thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. You are the best! God Bless, Lee & Teresa.
