About Brian

I live a blessed life! I get to live with an oceanview in San Diego for about half of the year. I grew up in the agricultural heart of California, so I love farming & nature. I farm guava, and my day job is as a lawyer, helping people out of legal jams. As a kid, our rare family vacations were to Lake Tahoe, & I have been all over the US & throughout the world to various Lake destinations, on many continents, even to historic Lake Como, Italy, & the great Swan River in Australia. But, I fell in love with Lake Coeur d'Alene forever, my very first time there! I go for weeks at a time, all times of year, and have been since my first trip in 1998. Although, I have been going to Idaho, formerly to McCall & Lake Payette, (too small and too remote) annually since about 1989, and have been traveling in the Great Northwest since my first road trip at age 14 to Oregon.

No other Lake anywhere can compare with CdA's weather, lack of bugs and snakes, warm summer waters (79 degrees), in the midst of the lower alpines, and with a touch of enough sophistication to be able to get a great meal with great wines, all at a much more reasonably price!

Easy to get to! My CdA home is about 35 mi. from Spokane Intl Airport (GEG) & connected by Southwest & Alaska Air to anywhere, even San Diego with a short hop!

Even in winter I can get there easily on the I90 & to one of several great ski & boarding mountains with as much as 300" of Utah quality powder in as little as 33 mins & with teenagers!

I feel like I am John Muir in the woods & among the wildlife in "My Own Private Idaho" & yet I can get onto the lake or to the supermarket, post office, gas station, FedEx/Kinkos, great restaurants, & yes, even Starbucks, & my favorite "Cheers" local bar, all within five minutes or so! Even Costco is less than 10 mins away! In a sense, CdA is very much like Costco, great stuff at great prices, & because CdA & Costco have nearly everything, if they do not have yet, you probably don't need it!

Brian purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Brian chose Coeur d'Alene

THE THREE L's of Real Estate: 1) Location in the woods among nature; 2) Location with a huge Lakeview; and 3) Location very close to town and Spokane Airport!

Then, AMENITIES: A modern kitchen, modern open floorplan, everything one needs on the ground floor, but with bathrooms on both levels, 3 br's with huge lakeviews right from a kingsize bed, and very easy

to live in and spend time right there on the property!

Tons of Big Glass with12' wide, opening Anderson door systems: The outdoors seems indoors and being in the outdoors is the essence of Idaho.

Clean Modern Hard Surfaces: Granite, porcelain, wood laminate and lots of fresh paint!

High quality Municipal Water drinkable out of the tap, not rusty well water!

Great 3-4 bar 4GLTE wireless coverage, from Verizon at least.

A John Muir Experience:

With due respect to everyone's right to their own private belief system, watching the moon rise over the lake any time of year and especially in winter after a recent snowfall, will make the non-religious question themselves!

What makes this cabin unique

I personally care for my property and am, most often, in town. During the times I cannot be there I have a reliable caretaker that is just minutes away!

I can offer boat rides in summer, just ask about it, and all of the free guidance about CdA you may want! I cannot stop talking about the place and would love to hear what you like and, more importantly, anything that you do not like!!!

excellent property

  • 5 of 5

The property was well equipped and very comfortable. WE had deer, elk, and turkeys within 50 feet of the deck every day of our stay. We were able to see the fireworks during the tree lighting ceremony from the upstairs balcony. We would highly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: The Masers were terrific guests! We cannot guarantee fireworks every day, but experincing the wildlife has become a regular thing, though it is always awe inspiring! A little piece of your own private Idaho, but just two miles to town!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for three nights while attending a car show in Spokane. The location is great, very close to shops/restaurants but has some privacy and nice views of the lake. House has everything you need and the bed was very comfortable.

Valentines Weekend Getaway

  • 4 of 5

My family and I (14 of us) were looking for a place close to CDA that would allow such a large group. This was the only close option we could find without paying an arm and a leg. Extremely close to CDA resort and restaurants. We were able to move furniture and comfortable fit all of us in the living room to enjoy hanging out near the kitchen. Everyone was able to sleep comfortably. There were 11 adults and 3 children. Great place if you want to spend some time near the lake but don't want to pay the lakefront price! Only draw back is parking. Make sure to carpool!!

Owner's Response: We do normally have parking for as many as five or six normal autos and even for an RV. This guest was a last minute booking with 11 adults and, unfortunately, I was unaware of the parking issue; if you have more than four or five cars, let me know and I can always ask a friendly neighbor to use their unused extra driveway space next door. We also have street parking very close by. There are very few problems that do not have a solution, albeit sometimes it requires a little creativity! :)
