About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

2,400 square foot house located on the St. Joe River which is 25 minutes by boat off of Lake Coeur D'Alene. Our home is a daylight basement style with upper and lower patios that will easily accommodate two families.

It is approximately 1.5 miles from quaint town of St. Maries Idaho, which features a golf course, grocery stores, several restaurants, a bowling alley, community parks, a hospital, several churches and the county fair.

Bring your toys and enjoy a lazy float down the St. Joe river, fly fishing, boating, water skiing, jet skiing, canoeing and kayaking. Our 300 square foot dock on the river can accommodate up to a 21 foot boat or multiple personal water crafts and is steps from lower level of house.

Also nearby is the famous Hiawatha Trail which families enjoy bike riding as well as extensive miles of motorcycle, quad and snowmobile trails. Hiking trails are also nearby.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a lovely place on the river, we really enjoyed sitting on the dock, fishing from the dock and being able to dock our jet ski right at the dock. We also floated the river, started at "the Big Eddy" up river. The house was clean and well supplied with everything we needed.

Thank you

Spacious and comfortable accommodations

  • 4 of 5

Well suited for a large family or several families. We enjoyed the river view from the living room and outdoor picnic table. Close to town for any needs but offers seclusion in the trees by the river ( You just need to know that StJoe River Rd can be busy in the early morning. Know it, expect it and go with it!).

The home is very clean with comfortable beds and everything you need for your stay. You may want to bring additional family friendly videos for younger children.

Great location for a extended family gathering

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family gathered in St. Maries to attend my mother’s memorial in May. Planned in February, somehow we were able to book this house which gave us bedrooms, a full kitchen and plenty of room indoors and out. As it turned out, we also had great seats for the 2016 USA World Championship Marathon Jet Boat Race right out of our picture windows!

The house is spacious, well stocked and most importantly, very clean. There are activities for rain or shine, for young and old. The location was perfect for our purposes and we hope to visit again!

Very easy and enjoyable home to rent . Recently updated bathrooms and very clean thru out for a home right on the river. Owner was helpful in all aspects before and after our stay. If only he had control of the weather!! Will stay here again soon!

Great find!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here July 11-19, 2015 and were over the top !We have never rented a house before and now we have high expectations. I had a few questions before we decided to rent and had super quick responses each time. The communication and instructions leading up to and after our stay we also fantastic and much appreciated . They have thought of everything you could possibly need in this house-from toiletries to ziplock bags to towels to use on the dock (to go along with the floats you can use) to a selection of movies and board games. The house is older, but it is definitley well cared for and maintained- new tile in the shower, brand new dishwasher. We were incredibly impressed with how immaculately clean it was too. The house itself is in a really great location- just right around the corner from the main streets in St. Maries. There were only 3 of us that stayed, but we could have easily had 9 more people and been comfortable. It was just fantastic and made our week a memorable vacation. The only down side is that St. Joe's Road is pretty busy and the logging truck start their thing around 1 am, but other than that, I look forward to many more visits to this house!

Great river location. The owners, and maintenance staff, are helpful and easy to deal with.

  • 4 of 5

Great location for river access, complete with a dock!! The only negative about the location is the constant noise from the highway. It is very loud, especially when trying to sleep. The house is situated great for a group of people. Wonderful downstairs if you are bringing kids or teens. The house itself could use some updates and improvements. One MAJOR improvement would be to put screens on the doors and windows. There are existing screens in the bedrooms, but they are in very poor shape. The glass doors have no screens, nor does the kitchen. You can't open things up to let in the cool air in the evenings.

Great Riverfront location and comfortable accommodations

  • 4 of 5

We used the cabin as home base for a 4-person fly fishing trip on the St Joe River. The place was comfortable and convenient to St Maries. We especially enjoyed the decks and the dock for morning and end-of-the-day relaxation. The property is unpretentious, roomy, clean and a good value for families with older kids and groups like ours. Logging trucks on the highway during the wee hours can be an annoyance to sleep, but that is easily dealt with by earplugs and/or a physically active day on the river. Overall, It worked great for us.
