Enjoy the colorful sunsets and lake views from almost anywhere in this lovely, CLEAN, 3000 square feet contemporary home with 100 feet of waterfront. You'll love the blended exterior landscaping and the lodge-style decorator touches and furniture inside! The home features hickory and tile flooring, skylights, abundant windows, a loft, and three well-appointed bedroom suites, each with a theme. It is just a few steps from the water, complete with wrap-around covered decks, private boat dock with mooring, and a panoramic view toward the west. No long staircase to the water--just a few steps off lawn or deck onto the dock for weed free swimming. The spiral staircase connects the upper and lower decks for relaxation and sunning. Away from the sunny, open waterfront you'll find a shady lawn, a little garden, and large firs and pines. You might see a bear, deer, turkey or moose, or catch a fish from the dock. Inside and out, you'll love this vacation getaway!
Your beautiful, vacation home radiates brightness, warmth and a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere inside and out. It features all the modern amenities including bright kitchen and breakfast bar, wood floors, large rock fireplace with entertainment center, large window and deck views, exposed beams, tiled baths, three bedroom suites, comfortable beds, and garaged parking. All the bedroom suites feature massive, custom log, Mexican alder, or Chilean wood furniture. All three suites have high end mattresses, and custom closets and baths. The house is full of log and custom-carved pine furniture and is comfortable and very clean. You are furnished with all of the kitchen utensils and necessities that you will need. Whether you're a serious cook or just want to microwave, you should enjoy the kitchen with its lake and yard views, and the herb garden outside. And if you have to do some work or on-line research, we have wireless internet at your disposal. The satellite service features HD packages and local stations. This is our favorite spot, and we manage it ourselves to make sure you and your guests feel it's yours, too.
Lake Coeur d'Alene is one of Idaho's largest lakes - from the dock you can cruise up the lake with your boat 15-20 minutes to downtown, or take the 25-minute scenic drive by car on paved Highway 97. You can spend your whole vacation exploring this magnificent lake. Swimming is great from late June until the end of September when water temperatures reach 75F. Our dock and beach are good for kids because there is a concrete ramp that goes part way out to about 3.5 foot depth. You can watch them close by from the dock or the decks, and the water is invitingly clear.
You can plan your day over morning coffee on the deck, even listen to music from the deck speakers. Many of our guests enjoy the area golfing at a dozen local courses ranging from lavish to pitch-and-putt. Others come to fish and boat. We have a great central location for fishing and there are many lovely, quiet mornings for water skiing. Some of you come to relax and soak up the views, the gentle sound of the waves, the shade of the lawn, or late Fall sunshine. Our main deck is built around a 100-year old pine, and there are sitting areas there and on the slate patio and upper deck for both sun and shade as the long summer days change. Winter and Spring are wonderful times here when there is a lot of game and few people and boats. It's a four seasons vacation area with four major downhill ski resorts within a one to two hour radius of the house. The satellite service features HD packages and local stations.

About the owner: We have been living in the beautiful Northwest since 1990. We love the outdoors, especially the biking trails, lakes and national forest areas.
Why the Owner Chose Driftwood Bay: Lake Coeur d'Alene is a beautiful lake, surrounded by large forested areas, relatively undiscovered compared to other lakes of comparable size.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We chose this property because it's in a beautiful treed setting right next to the water. The house has many beautiful features, including high ceilings, tall windows, a beautiful rock fireplace and built-in bookcases. Most guests really like the open floor plan of the house and all the windows which look over the water. Some magnificent sunsets have been photographed from our decks.
