Cave Bay cabin description

Perfect Family get-away home! Military discount!
Rustic charm abounds in every detail at this Coeur d’Alene lake retreat. From handmade quilts to antique books and prints, to turn-of-the-century cast iron bed frames, the décor is reminiscent of a country bed and breakfast. The central great room features soaring honey-colored timber walls, with a vaulted loft reached by a spiral staircase. Four picture windows and an attached deck frame the view of bay & mountains over the rooftops below, while a remote-controlled ceiling fan, gas fireplace, portable air conditioner, and dimmable light fixtures allow you to set the mood for whatever your vacation has in store. High-speed wireless and cable with over 190 channels offer convenience for those that can't quite get away from it all.

The main floor bedroom & loft can sleep six in full beds. Brand new sofas with four reclining seats provide more options. A farm-style dining table seats six in the main room with an adjacent breakfast bar comfortably seating four more. The updated kitchen includes new cabinetry and every convenience, and the main floor bathroom has a sink and shower fitted with a luxurious rain-style shower head.

For larger groups, the lower level has another full bed & twin sofa, for a grand total of at least nine sleeping options in the house. This lower level is bright & modern, with its own entrance and a staircase to the main level. It includes a second bathroom with tub, shower, and double sink, as well as laundry facilities and a snack bar with a second microwave, coffee pot, toaster, and dishes. This level is perfect for the couple that wants some individual space or as a place for sports fans to watch the game. Additional furnishings on this level include a claw-foot wingback chair with large footstool, a game table that can expand to seat eight, a ping pong table and office desk.

The hillside site has perks in every direction. It lies just inside the Cave Bay community on a private loop road minutes from the lake. The lakeside park a 15-minute walk down to the bottom of this road, exclusive to residents and guests of Cave Bay, boasts horseshoe and volleyball pits, swings, a fishing dock, a roped area for children’s swimming, and water access; this rental includes your own boat slip. Nights are dark & quiet, with no sound but the crickets chirping, yet the morning newspaper is delivered twenty yards outside your front door! In addition to the usual parking, a large space outside the basement door is exclusive to this property and can easily fit a truck & boat trailer. A small storage facility is available in back, and the landscaped side lawn has a large & sturdy fire pit perfect for roasting marshmallows under the stars.

The drive to and from Cave Bay takes you through rolling wheat fields and a forest that’s home to quail and the occasional wild turkey. Fifteen minutes by car takes you to the grocery store in Plummer or to the Coeur D’Alene Casino with its seafood buffet and golf course. Fifteen minutes by boat lands you in the charming village of Harrison with its wonderful local restaurants, or on a forested peninsula with secluded camping. Spokane and Coeur D'Alene are both about 45 minutes away; Spokane airport is just an hour drive.

Don’t have your own boat? Harrison Boat Rentals in Harrison rents boats and can deliver them to the slip that comes as part of this rental.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2010

              About the owner: We purchased this cabin as a multi-generational retreat. Grandma and Grandpa, the kids, spouses, and a grandkid can all get together and there is something for everyone. So far, we've visited a small-town fair in Rockford Washington, went into Spokane for some shopping and antique-ing, and scoped out the miles of wonderful hiking and biking trails near-by. In June 2012 we rented a boat from Harrison Boat Rentals and went to the near-by campground that is only available by boat. We did some fishing and had a great day! Oh and our other 'kids', Audi, Porsche, and Levi are enjoying the new fenced dog kennel so they aren't cooped up inside all the time!

              Why the Owner Chose Cave Bay:
              This location is far enough in the country to feel like we were really 'getting away from it all' but a scenic 45-minute drive gets us to the conveniences of either Spokane WA or Coeur D'Alene ID. Plummer is just 15 minutes for groceries and the fun resort town of Harrison ID is 15 minutes by boat. The Coeur D'Alene Casino just expanded and they have great food and golf in addition to gambling. We're also planning on taking the kids to Silverwood next fall, which is just about an hour away. It is so peaceful and quiet at night! Perfect!!

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              Heyburn State Park is near-by with 5500 acres of land and 2300 acres of water; the oldest park in the Pacific Northwest. The Trail of the Coeur D'Alenes offers over 70 miles of paved bike paths just 15 minutes away. The Cave Bay Community Beach has something for everyone of every age. A private boat slip and plenty of parking are other benefits you will enjoy during your stay.
