About Lisa Gorham

When we visited Coeur d'alene in 2005 we instantly fell in love and bought this cute little down town cottage. I want everyone to know some of our favorites of Coeur D'alene.

Favorite Beach-

Pack a lunch and hike out tubbs hill to the point. Very peacful and crystal clear water. We stay there all day, like 7 hours.

Favorite Market

Harvest Organic Market- just around the corner 3 blocks away is Safeway, 3 blocks up from safeway is Harvest.

Favority Restaurant-

Angelo's Ristorante Italiano (a local grown restaurant)

846 N 4th St CDA, Idaho or try Wolf lodge for steak.

Must Do's

If you have young kids, take them to Rider's Ranch for horse back riding. You only have to be 2. Take the kids to Silverwood Park for water slides and roller coasters. Hit the beach. River and creek fly fishing are insane in the area if you like to fish. Check with me for the best fishing spots. I can't disclose them here.

Lisa Gorham purchased this house in 2005

Why Lisa Gorham chose Northern Idaho

We are walking distance to everything that downtown CDA has to offer. We have a front porch with comfortable chairs to sit and read or drink a glass of wine on a warm summer night. The house has all the amenities of home. It is clean & comfortable.

What makes this house unique

I like the fishing in the area. Excellent fly fishing on nearby creeks and rivers. Try Lightning Creek up near Sand Point for large trout fishing. Look for WMA access and park there. Use red lid "balls of fire" or spinning lures and flys (purple/white parachute).

You can walk to the lake and rent paddle boards and paddle board around the lake. Its a great place to bike.

Convenient location, clean and well stocked

  • 4 of 5

The house was very comfortable for our family (4 adults) and the owners very responsive to our questions. The location was convenient to all the places they listed. The beds were very comfortable too! The main reasons not to give it 5 stars was that the master bedroom downstairs was a bit musty smelling (though the bathroom downstairs had a great shower), the traffic in front busy during most of the days we were there (this was where the lovely porch was) and that we were asked to do some laundry before we left because there was another tenant coming in right after us. None of these were deal breakers and we did very much enjoy our stay.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Overall the location was great, very close to downtown and the park. The home was very clean and well kept. Downstairs stays very cool, and upstairs stayed cool as well with the windows and doors open. Take note that it says A/C, but there are only window/wall units upstairs, not central A/C. Only gave 4 stars, because the key wasn't left for us the night we arrived and we couldn't get in touch with the owner, and the internet and cable (channels beyond the local few) didn't work, however we learned after our stay that they do have full cable and internet. Other then those things the house was great for families. We enjoyed being on the porch and watch cars drive by as the kids played. Lastly, the foam beds weren't the best, and the first room upstairs does sag a bit, but other then that, the house pretty much had everything we needed for a comfortable week long stay!

Great family home

  • 5 of 5

We had a very positive experience at this CDA home. The owner was very tuned into the needs of children and we had lots of fun things to use like a wagon to go to the beach (which was nearby) as well as sun chairs, umbrella, and a fabulous set of sand toys! Since it was nearly 100 degrees, we were so grateful for AC! The front porch was a really nice place to "hang out" in the mornings and evenings. We were there with our kids and grand children and had a wonderful time! Thanks for sharing your home:)!

Great Vacation Rental

  • 4 of 5

This house worked out perfect for our needs. We had two families with small children (4 between us) and this was the perfect spot. The house has everything you need, including equipment for the lake and beach towels. It really is within walking distance of Down town CDA and Memorial Park and beach. Everything was clean and well maintained. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes etc. Beware however, this house doesn't have a dishwasher, you will do all dishes by hand. Or do what we did and use lots of paper plates!

The only drawback we found is the bed in the larger upstairs bedroom is a bit soft and sags in the middle, not comfortable for two adults. We ended up moving the kids there. And, it would be fun if there were a fire pit in the back yard for making s'mores, roasting hot dogs etc.

Perfect getaway

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying at this nice home for 6 days. The location was awesome. Walking or riding bikes to town or the beach was fun and easy. Boat rentals from KJ Sports was great and just down the road. After boating each day it was good to come back to the house ac and cook dinner, relax, play games, .... The home is well supplied with all you need for families and adults. Would do this again!!
