Year Purchased: 1953
About the owner: Lifetime residents on the Pacific Northwest. Second generation owner of this paradise on the water.
Why the Owner Chose Coolin: 'SUMMER SANDS' waterfront property was purchased in the 50's when I was a couple of years old.
My mother told my father, at that time, she would agree to purchase a lake home if...
(1) It didn't have a fast water drop-off
(2) No steep hills to get to cabin or lake
(3) Had a sandy gradual beach
(4) sun exposure most of the day
(5) and was a Deeded Lot (not leased) property........
~~~~THIS WAS A KEEPER~~~~
(In approximately 2007 we replaced the cabin with this lakeside 3600 sf home).
The Unique Benefits at this House: The location is perfect. It is at the start or Southeast end of the lake (saves you the dangerous drive up the lake). Only few minutes to the only town on the east-side of lake, 'Coolin' for your all your needed supplies re: gas, food or emergencies/ boat & Jet ski rentals etc. (see Leonard Paul Store web site) A easy 30 minute drive to the town of Priest River.
The sunny EAST side is full of fun filled sunny days. Our home is a newer built home completed in 2007. We have a covered 14'x50' beachfront porch that allows you afternoon shade & to be outside and enjoying your vacation even during a summer rain. The westerly sunsets viewed from the east side of lake right off our huge porch and dining room are spectacular. Our bay is in a somewhat protected bay with very little boat traffic allowing safer swimming. The water is also warmer on the southeast part of the lake. Excellent fishing right out in front of home.
