Luxurious Timber-Framed Cabin at Priest Lake Idaho

Bedrooms 6
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

Cabin, 6 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12-16)

'Falling Water' is located on Reeder Creek with a one minute walk through the woods to a beautiful sandy beach on pristine Priest Lake in northern Idaho.

Priest Lake is a large, clear, deep water lake, 19 miles long, four miles wide, with numerous beaches, and famous for its beauty, tranquility, and incredible wildlife. It is located about 90 miles from Spokane airport, and the lake itself has two small airfields. The Priest Lake area offers superb water sports, fishing, hiking, biking, snowmobiling, and golfing. Several excellent restaurants are situated on the lake within easy boating or driving distance. There is a boat mooring for guests within 2 minute's walk from the cabin at Elkins Resort which also offers an award winning restaurant and more casual food and live music in the bar, a store as well as rental of water sports equipment.

While Priest Lake has a long established reputation as a wonderful summer resort area, in the past few years a 400 mile system of snowmobile trails, including a groomed trail to Schweitzer Ski Resort, has made Priest Lake one of the best snowmobiling destinations in the US. The area offers thousands of acres of amazing snowmobiling to an increasing number of winter sports fans who spend a weekend or longer here during the winter months.

This gorgeous 6 bedroom timberframe cabin was built six years ago to the highest standards. The sound of the creek which runs within a few feet of the cabin provides a constant background of music. The great room has a 26 foot pine clad cathedral ceiling and an enormous stone fireplace, with comfortable leather sofas and additional seating. The kitchen and all 3 bathrooms have granite counters with slate floors. The kitchen has been designed to accomodate groups who like to prepare meals together with ample counter space for several cooks, and is fully equipped with a large fridge freezer and external ice/water dispenser, microwave, gas stove/electric oven, coffee grinder and maker, dishwasher and garbage diposal. Outside is an enormous deck with lounge chairs and barbeque. Twelve adults can dine at the custom built tables, with additional seating at the kitchen island.

There are 3 bedrooms with queen-size beds and 3 bedrooms with two full size single beds in each. The master bedroom has a cathedral ceiling and external deck as well as balcony onto the great room. The main floor queen bedroom and bathroom are wheelchair accessible, as is the rest of the main floor and deck. On the upper floor there are two additional bathrooms for the four bedrooms on that floor. In addition to the master bedroom, the other queen bedroom on this floor has a balcony onto the great room. The bed and bath linens are all supplied and of fine quality. It is possible to accomodate younger guests in several of the bedrooms if the group exceeds 12 people.

Falling Water is a private home in an exceptional location, offering luxurious and spacious family accommodation for all seasons.

Awesome property

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property! The house was spacious, as was the deck, and nicely furnished. Being next to the creek and Elkins resort was fantastic. When we arrived at the property we were met by Kristi, who showed us around the house to ensure we were comfortable with everything. She is truly a blessing! This is a house I would stay at again without hesitation!

Beautiful well kept property.

  • 5 of 5

Lots of room for our large family! Everyone had a bed and a seat at the dinner table. Beautiful surroundings not far from snowmobile trails. The driveway was a little tricky but we made it work. Would definitely recommend this property! We will be back!!

Fantastic ! Just the best place ever !

  • 5 of 5

We were on a family vacation, 10 adults, 4 children, there was PLENTY of room for all of us. 2 bedrooms downstairs and 4 upstairs, with a great layout. HUGE family room with open concept kitchen, just the best place ever ! Walking distance and when I say that, I mean within a minute you are in the middle of Elkins Resort with a full restaurant and bar, shop and beach ! I was met by the caretaker and shown around, it was just a excellent experience, one that I look forward to enjoying again !

A beautiful home in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

It was nice to be close to Elkins for certain things but wonderful to be in such a quiet spot. The walk was an easy 5 minutes. The house had almost everything we needed. Perhaps a high chair would be a good addition.

A wonderful family venue

  • 4 of 5

Our extended family stayed for five nights in late June. This included several adults and several children. The kitchen and living area were ideal for a group gathering and we loved being adjacent to Elkins resort. We were able to make use of the restaurant and sandy beach, as well as the boat rentals.

There were two routes to the beach. One was through the resorts and the other on a private trail. The former was an easy walk, and the latter for the more agile.

The deck is quite large so the choice between eating indoors and outdoors is good either way. The beds are all quite comfortable.

There were a few mechanical issues with the house but adequately addressed by the property manager.

Not being right on the beach was an easy trade off for having access to the Elkins amenities. I thought this would be a one time rental and next time we would get a beach place, but now we plan to return here instead.

No cable for the desired sports game but Elkins came through.
