We looked for years for this wonderful lake and house!!
The lake had to be close to a major airport. Hayden Lake is 45 minutes by car due east from Spokane, Washington International Airport, a small comfortable airport with direct flights from many cities across the United States.
The house had to be close (but not too close) to good shopping and restaurants. It is about 20 minutes from the town of Hayden, with all the big box stores, Costco, Home Depot, markets, book stores and shopping. And it is close by (about 30 minutes from our home) to the charming and more bustling town of Coeur D'Alene, with it’s larger lake, historic main street, arts festivals and great restaurants. (As an added plus, this area of Northern Idaho is known for over 50 great golf courses!)
We didn’t want the lake to be too big or too small.
We looked at a number of lakes that were too big, Flathead Lake in Montana, Lake Powell in Utah (no houses on the lake and 2000 miles of shore line.) Hayden Lake is just right with 40 miles of shoreline and plenty of coves and inlets. We have never seen it crowded in the three summers that we had visited, even on Saturday or Sunday in the middle of July and August!
Hayden Lake is shallow enough to be warm in the summer. For those of us who hate cold water, you can swim in the lake without a wet suit in the summer months.
My wife only wanted a site with afternoon sun which means we had to be on the east side of the lake but facing the west. I wanted a home that was not high up on the mostly high shorelines where many homes have lifts or extensive flights of stairs (about 3 stories high) to go from the beach and dock to there house. That was not easy, but we prevailed.
Our house is in an almost private cove with a gently sloping lot very close to the shoreline. The lot is situated between two vacant lots and the cove is known as one of the best fishing spots on the lake. We have a boat dock slip and a two person kayak that guests are welcome to use.
The house is about 3,200 sq ft. on the water’s edge. It is on two levels with 3 bedrooms, two dens and two bathrooms with private beach and dock to boot! There is even a full size doll house for fun, that has two bunk beds in it!
This home will sleep 8-10 people. Each bedroom has a queen size bed, the upstairs den has a sleeper couch as does the downstairs den, and the oversized utility room has a trundle bed which will sleep two (two single mattresses).
It has a complete kitchen with marble counter tops, washer and dryer, TV’s, and it is internet connected.
Please come and enjoy our wonderful home.
