  • No more just driving through Idaho to get to Montana-Idaho rocks!

    "What a great way to explore Northern Idaho! The Gondola house was perfect-clean, homey and a hot tub after a day on the bike! The attention to detail was amazing-comfy beds, a full kitchen, fun decorating that really reflects the area. I saved this to favorites because it is. Thank you so much for sharing this lovely home. The owner was very helpful and sincere. Highly recommended!"

Silver Mountain Travel Tips

Silver Mountain Vacation Rentals Offer Fun for the Family

Silver Mountain is a popular vacation destination in Kellogg, approximately 30 miles east of Coeur d'Alene. This mountain location is primarily a winter sports destination but it also provides a host of outdoor activities during the summer months for quality family fun. Silver Mountain's claim to fame is that it is home to the world's longest single-cabin gondola with miles of ski runs. It has tried out a few names, originally opening in 1968 as "Jackass Ski Bowl/" It then became "Silverhorn" with new ownership in 1973 and finally settled on "Silver Mountain."

Popular Things to Do near Silver Mountain House Rentals

Silver Mountain offers all the usual winter sports, including skiing, tubing, snowboarding, snowmobiling and sledding.

The Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes goes right through the village, offering miles of cycling and hiking past lakes, rivers and the scenic Silver Valley. Boating, ATV riding, tubing, rafting and fishing can also be enjoyed on the nearby lakes. Galena Ridge offers championship golf with superb views from its 18-hole par-71 course.

The Climate Enjoyed by Idaho Vacation Rentals

The mountain has over 500 inches of snowfall and below-average hours of sunshine.

Places to Visit for Family Fun from Your Silver Mountain Vacation Rentals

Kellogg town itself is a great place to explore, if only to learn the history of what is known as "The town founded by a jackass and inhabited by his descendants." The story goes that Noah Kellogg was a local prospector whose jackass wandered off. He found it at a large outcropping of galena (lead ore) which became Bunker Hill Mine and the prosperous Sullivan Mine. The city was founded around the discovery. Noah Kellogg's grave can be visited in the cemetery before taking a fascinating mine tour. The smart town, built on the profits from the prosperous silver and lead mines, has good shopping, dining and a new golf course.

The new indoor water park in the area, Silver Rapids, is ideal for summer fun with a host of pools, slides and activities. The Coeur d'Alene National Forest is also a great day out with 72 miles of trails for hiking and mountain biking. The area enjoys superb mountain views up the Cascade and Bitterroot Mountains.

Reasons for Choosing Idaho Vacation Rentals

Choosing a vacation rental makes good sense to enjoy the outdoor recreation in this scenic area. It is the ideal destination for a family vacation in both summer and winter, and plenty of bedroom and bathroom space ensures a harmonious stay. Vacation rentals are ideal for relaxing in comfort during the evening. The fully equipped kitchens make preparing meals for the family an easy task and save you money on eating out every day.
