Driftwood Bay house description
Enjoy the experience of North Idaho and its pristine waters on this privately owned waterfront property, built in 1993 and acquitted with modern day amenities. Located in a highly desirable location on the east side of Coeur d’Alene Lake, you will enjoy your own private beach equaling up to 100 ft with your own private dock to accommodate your watercrafts, although a canoe and a pair of kayaks are provided at your leisure. Since this property is located on the east side of the lake, plenty of sunshine is provided, which is greatly appreciated in this part of northern Idaho. You will be able to swim in crystal clear water right off of the beach or off the dock. Coeur d’Alene Lake is over 20 miles from top to bottom, allowing countless hours of boating pleasure and discovery. There is a large deck right on the property, located just off of the beach, that provides for plenty of shade during the warm summer months, as well as a built in picnic table. In the evening, a campfire can be built right along the water’s edge. You will also have access to a gas grill that will allow you to BBQ your favorite items for any meal of the day if you desire. A patio table and multiple chairs, including chaise lounge chairs surround the home. There is 1900 feet of living space with large picturesque windows that are situated with outstanding lake views. The home itself is located approximately 20 feet higher from the water’s edge, giving an outstanding view of Lake Coeur d’Alene. Sunsets are especially amazing from this location, as well as the fantastic stars that light the night sky every night. The evenings can get pretty really cool, so be sure to bring your warm blankets and sweaters! You will most definitely enjoy your time here on this beautiful property.

ReviewsWrite a review
It was just my husband and I and our dog. We rent a lot of VRBO homes and this one was the most completely stocked we've ever been in. You can read the other reviews for what was available, so I won't get into that. It was wonderful. I'm going to mention a problem I had in case anyone else has my problems. I have arthritis and scoliosis and I had a hard time going up and down the steps to the dock. There are 47 steep ones (you know when you're counting them while you rest on the landings..picture a smiley face here). Also, maybe 8 steps going up into the house. Other than that, we wouldn't hesitate to rent this home again. (oh...and it's quite a distance from stores and stuff)

This place exceeded all of our expectations! The house was the perfect size for 8 of us with room to spare. The upstairs bedroom was very large and could accommodate more people if needed. The view of the lake and surrounding areas was amazing. The large dock was perfect for lounging on. The owner was prompt in answering questions, and the information package about ammenities and access was very thorough! We were very happy with our experience and would stay here again.

Great place to stay for whole family!
Great place to stay for whole family!
The location and having our own dock as well as being able to bring our dog was very appealing. The owners of the house went above and beyond to set us up for an easy stay - they had brand new condiments, picnic supplies, laundry supplies, spices, cases of water and even lots of microwave popcorn for us to enjoy. Plenty of space for 8 of us. The place was very clean and comfortable. Views were amazing. Quiet mornings with glassy waters were especially nice. Hope to be able to return next summer.

About the owner: Welcome to our lake house on Lake Coeur d Alene. Come relax and enjoy one of Idaho's most beautiful lakes. My wife and I and our children have purchased this property to be our own personally get away. We grew up in this area. We have enjoyed many days of relaxation on this property and plan to spend many more days in the future. In fact my wife and I plan to retire here and cannot think of a better place to carry this out. Currently we cannot spend the entire season here and have decided to share our vacation spot with others. It is so nice and peaceful here, we are sure you will also agree.
Why the Owner Chose Driftwood Bay:
We purchased this property due to its private setting and close proximity to downtown Coeur d Alene which is a quick 30 minute drive. Our house is located in an upscale community and is very private. We also like the east side of the lake which provides for great sun exposure. In northern Idaho the warm summer days are a very welcome treat and the air really cools down in the evening when the sun goes down.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Come relax and enjoy one of Idaho's most beautiful lakes. Minutes from world class golf, biking, hiking, boating, and sailing. Enjoy your own private beach and dock where you can moor your own boat and jetskies. You can fish and swim right off the dock. Enjoy the great outdoors on Coeur d Alene Lake. The water is very clean and refreshing especially during a hot summer day. We have great southern exposure so you have plenty of sunshine during the day. This adorable lake house on driftwood point has everything you need for a great vacation lake adventure. You will find this to be a slice of heaven.
