Coeur d'Alene cottage description

Come stay at our 'Cottage by the Chapel' in the heart of the historic Fort Grounds neighborhood. Our 1910 home was completely remodeled in 2009 and offers turn-of-the-century charm with the conveniences of a modern home. A great place to relax and watch the world go by.

The cottage is a short three minute walk to City Park and a four minute walk to City Beach on the north shore of beautiful Lake Coeur d'Alene. From there, a short stroll along the beach takes you right into downtown with a full range of restaurants, galleries, shopping and entertainment. All of your beach gear is provided - towels, chairs, umbrella, toys, cooler, and a handy cart to haul it all to the beach.

After a day at the beach or on the lake, relax at the cottage on the large covered front porch, complete with padded wicker chairs and a porch swing. Or enjoy the privacy of our fenced patio area with a gas fire pit. For ultimate relaxation, take a long soak in our large claw foot bathtub with a selection of scented bubble baths to choose from.

Our kitchen is fully equipped to prepare your favorite meals, or peruse one of several cookbooks provided for you to try new recipes. We also have extras like a small cappuccino maker and milk shake machine.

The two large upstairs bedrooms are equipped with king size beds, while the downstairs bedroom has a queen bed. There is also a full sofa-sleeper downstairs for total sleeping capacity of eight. All beds are fitted with 400-thread count or higher sheets and cotton comforters for luxurious sweet dreams. The downstairs bath has a shower, and the upstairs bath has the claw foot tub.

With approximately 1,900 square feet of living space including a large living room and dining room, and an eat-in kitchen, there is plenty of space for everyone.

The historic Fort Sherman Chapel across the street is available for weddings through the Museum of North Idaho. Our cottage would be an ideal location for your out-of-town wedding guests to stay.

We look forward to making your stay at the cottage a relaxing and memorable experience.

                          Why the Owner Chose Coeur d'Alene:
                          My wife and I have lived in the Coeur d'Alene area for more than 20 years and the Fort Grounds neighborhood has always been a favorite of ours. Its proximity to the lake, downtown, city park and the college set it apart.
