  • Beautiful Home in Beautiful Location

    "We had a great stay at this wonderful home with our teenage girls. Everyone enjoyed swimming in the clear water off the dock, the girls had fun in the canoe, and the dock was also great for mooring our small sailboat. Although we ate a few meals out, the kitchen at the cabin is wonderful and we mostly prepared our own meals and relaxed at the house. The owners were very accomodating and helpful, and there are lots of little conveniences which they have provided in the cabin. We also enjoyed the games and DVDs - it was nice to actually not have internet. And it was easy to get into Coeur d'Alene for a day, and we also spent a day at the waterpark and rides at Silverwood. We had a great family vacation."

  • Pretty setting, Condo has everything needed.

    "The view from the condo is so pretty and peaceful. It was a great first impression. As we unpacked, we realized everything we needed was there already. So convenient to have the W/D too with 3 little kids in tow! My kids loved the heated pool. Grandma loved sitting on the deck in the mornings. There was enough space for everyone to stake their own. We kept a marathon Monopoly game set up on the coffee table. We'd play until we saw the outside thermometer hanging on the deck wall say it was warming up outside. (We were there early June) Then we'd hit the beach, or explore, and always come back to the pool. We saw so many deer munching away on the road to and from town - that made the few minutes drive all worth it. Also, there is a new restaurant with really yummy pizza - Growlers...we went twice for pizza during our stay. I'd stay there again."

This cabin is private yet only a short walk to town. It is perfect for a family getaway any season! We really enjoyed our stay and will be back for more. Thanks so much!"
