~~THIS HOME IS SITUATED IN A QUIET BAY~~
~~~~~ This is -NOT A PARTY CABIN- ~~~~~
Sorry no pets & no smoking
Lifetime residents on the Pacific Northwest. Second generation owner of this paradise on the water.
Bob & Priscilla Avey purchased this house in 1953
'SUMMER SANDS' waterfront property was purchased in the 50's when I was a couple of years old.
My mother told my father, at that time, she would agree to purchase a lake home if...
(1) It didn't have a fast water drop-off
(2) No steep hills to get to cabin or lake
(3) Had a sandy gradual beach
(4) sun exposure most of the day
(5) and was a Deeded Lot (not leased) property........
~~~~THIS WAS A KEEPER~~~~
(In approximately 2007 we replaced the cabin with this lakeside 3600 sf home).
The location is perfect. It is at the start or Southeast end of the lake (saves you the dangerous drive up the lake). Only few minutes to the only town on the east-side of lake, 'Coolin' for your all your needed supplies re: gas, food, restaurants,Post Office, or emergencies/ boat & Jet ski rentals etc. (see Leonard Paul Store web site) An easy 30 minute drive to the town of Priest River.
The sunny EAST side is full of fun filled sunny days. Our home is a newer built home completed in 2007. We have a covered 14'x50' beachfront porch that allows you afternoon shade & to be outside and enjoying your vacation even during a summer rain. The westerly sunsets viewed from the east side of lake right off our huge porch and dining room are spectacular. Our bay is in a somewhat protected bay with very little boat traffic allowing safer swimming. The water is also warmer on the southeast part of the lake. Excellent fishing right out in front of home.
Let me start by saying we had a great family vacation at Priest Lake. There were 6 adults and 2 young children in our group. The weather and lake were perfect and we rented a boat in nearby Coolin for rides and water sports. But for the price of renting this home, I was disappointed.
This home is tired. The bedding and bath linens are old and worn, as are the cooking supplies. There were at least 4 bbq grills, two of them sitting in the weeds. I was shocked when we arrived to see all the miscellaneous stuff stored around the house and on the porches making it feel untended. The grass leading to the beach needed attention which was surprising as we had been told not to put ice on the grass as we might kill it.
Upon arrival we were told the satellite TV was not working and we should be available to let the repairman in on Tuesday during certain hours. Interesting…not what I had in mind during my vacation. In addition, were told if a realtor wanted to show it (it is listed for sale), we should accommodate them. Also, not what I had in mind.
The Avey's sent many emails and called various times re: the required payments and damage deposit. I paid exactly as requested and received their list of rules. It was 4 pages, including, but not limited to:
Rake the beach
Wash, dry, fold the bath linens
Take the garbage to the dump (pass provided so it's free) but about 5 miles away. Not convenient when you're trying to vacate
In addition, I think the owners should remove their personal items, like the bathrobe on the back of the Master bath door, the underwear in the armoire in the master.
Maybe I'm totally out of touch, but at these prices, I think this place should be well maintained, well stocked and the total cleaning, including garbage removal and laundry should be done by the owners. And asking renters to replace the used garbage bags is laughable.
Our family is very unpretentious and we all make the best of a situation, but we had thought of bringing some friends to join us. So glad we didn't. I would have been embarrassed.
Our family has been coming to Priest Lake for over 20 years. We have rented this home for the last 3 years and plan to rent it again. The home is located on our favorite part of the lake. Close to boat ramp and store in Coolin. We enjoyed water skiing, fishing, paddle boards, and just hanging out in the lake. Our two families with ages from 60 to 5 enjoyed the large kitchen, large covered back deck, beach, and dock space for 3 boats. The grass area next to the beach was used extensively for lots of corn hole games. Plenty of sleeping accommodations and bathrooms for all.
Best vacation ever! Our family of 10 had a week of fun, relaxation and adventure. Wonderful large 6 bedroom 4 large bath home right on the clear lake. Kids (ages 7-10) were in the water all day - sandbar went out about 100 yards with no fear of deep water. Grandson caught a fish in the rowboat provided- great moment for him. Nice big kitchen - never felt cramped and loved the huge covered back deck. Spent a lot of quality time out there. Thanks for the memories- great week with our beautiful family. The owners are wonderful to work with- always available to answer questions
We had a great week at Bob and Priscilla's house. We're a family of 9, and this house had more than enough room to make everyone comfortable. We had fires outside at night, rented a boat, jet skis, kayaks - so much to do and see and we couldn't have asked for a better house and location to do it all from. We had a bald eagle perch right on the porch, deer and moose nearby, and the most beautiful sunsets to admire from the porch. We felt like the house was remote enough to be private, but still, we were only 5 minutes away from the Leonard Paul store if we needed to run out for something.
For the last 18 years, my entire family has visited Priest Lake for a week in July. It is the best place on earth for a family vacation. The last two years we have stayed at Bob and Priscilla's place in Coolin. This is a really special place with plenty of room for a large group, a beautiful large and modern home and some great owners who make us feel welcome. We will be coming back for years to come. Love the dock, the access to the best water on the lake, the large gently sloping shore, and the sandy beach. The house stays cool all day. It is perfect for those that love water sports or just want to relax. Lots of in-home entertainment for all ages including a full stock of games, books and movies. We LOVE this place.
My favorite things about this vacation rental:
- sand bar to enjoy the water even with the kiddos. We snorkeled and saw large fish in the clear water!
- near the Soldier creek to go exploring via non-motorized boat
- great beach for the kids to play on
- great outdoor deck for enjoying meals/reading book/etc.
- close to Leonard Paul Store in Coolin
- near numerous hiking trails (Hunt Creek Falls, Hunt Lake, Mt. Roothan, etc.)
- numerous BR/BA to accommodate our large family
- equipped with plenty of utensils/cookware for preparing large meals
- numerous TV channels and large selection of movies to keep everyone entertained when the clouds/rain rolls through.
I highly recommend this home to anyone wanting to experience Priest Lake. Perfect for our large group (young children through adults). Bob and Priscilla make the rental process easy to understand, with clear expectations, and are prompt in replying to us.
Enjoy the white all sand beach in our peaceful protected bay.
We are walking distance (1.9 miles) to the town of Coolin which has the famous Leonard Paul Store (see their web site) which has groceries, souvenirs, Deli and ice cream & Espresso bar, Liquor store, boat/fishing licenses & WiFi.
The Moose Knuckle bar/cafe & Ardys Restaurant is also in town of Coolin for a great breakfast or dinner & of course huckleberry homemade pie and ice cream.
The town of Coolin has 2 free public boat launches and a Marina with boat gas.
We also have a fire station along with 911 emergency service with local Priest Lake ambulance service in Coolin area.
*Indians use to camp on our beach and fish for white fish & trout in Soldier Creek with their spears and bows. We have found numerous arrow heads right on our beach in front of home.
Right out our back door you have perfect mountain bike/SUV riding. Early each morning you will see locals walking and jogging to Coolin for their morning espresso.
Priest Lake 18 hole golf course is only about a 20 minute drive by car or take your boat across the lake and your gold cart awaits you at 'Hills Resort'. Hills is also a very special place to have a dinner by the lake.
Lake Trout & Kokanee are plentiful throughout the lake. We have caught and released 35 LB.Lake trout along with many great eating 2-8# range on light tackle.
~~~ Fall Fishing is a great/best opportunity to land that trophy fish.~~~
