Super location, quaint older home.

  • 4 of 5

First off, someone else mentioned the fact the upstairs kitchen sink is somehow tied into the downstairs toilet, so when "big business" is flushed downstairs, some bad odor comes out of the upstairs kitchen sink. And this is a true thing. But I think this is due to the fact it is an older house, with an add-on downstairs unit----which is quite nice---and the plumbing might not be just right. But we worked around it once we knew everyone's, um, body schedule. And didn't use the kitchen then.

Otherwise, the place is great. Nice location, offstreet parking for one in the alley behind, a good sized yard and nice back patio, and the beds were all comfortable. Easily enough room for 3 couples bedroom-wise.

The kitchen is not huge, but for our purposes it was fine. Seating for 4 in the dining area, as well as outside table for 4+. The owner has the cabinets stocked with all the dishes we needed, and there were plenty of towels and cleaning supplies and whatnot. The shady front porch is a plus, and a nice place to relax if it is too sunny and hot in the backyard.

The real selling point is the location, which is a super easy walk to the city park, the beach , and Coeur d'Alene's vibrant downtown area. I only drove when I needed to go to Safeway a mile away.

Bottom line: If you want a great location, this is the place. It is an older home with a few "warts", but overall I was happy. If you want a fancy house with central air conditioning, a huge marble kitchen, and enormous couches and giant flat screen tv, this is probably not the place you are looking for.

Great location!

Nice cozy basic little cottage close to everything. For what we needed (beds) the house was great. As long as you aren't doing a big dinner, I would recommend this house.

If you didn't need the kitchen the property was great.

  • 3 of 5

The kitchen and shower took the shine off the rest of the house. Layout of kitchen is good for one person. The sink backup when someone was showering downstairs was nauseating.

Fort Grounds - Couer D'Alene

  • 5 of 5

We want to thank Dan, the owner for making our stay at Fort Grounds so comfortable. In January my husband and I were visiting family in nearby Hayden, but needed a quiet place to stay because of our young children (ages 2 & 4). Dan was able to provide us with a pack & play, high chair and even plastic bowls and cups for the kids! We will definitely be booking our next family trip to CDA with Dan, he couldn't have been more accommodating.

Wonderful location, accommodating owner

  • 5 of 5

This was my families first stay at a VRBO property. We must say that we were pleasantly surprised at how at home we felt in the bungalow.

The bedding was soft and fresh, hardwood floors dust free and the front porch swing quaint. We hope to return during warmer weather to take advantage of the beach. Thank you Dan. You have a lovely home.

Our home is located just one block from the family friendly city park and 1 1/2 blocks from the Public City Beach waterfront.

If you have never rented someone's home, there are many things to consider. One of the best things about renting our home is that you have a beautiful home to spread out in. You aren't confined to a hotel room. People that prefer to cook rather than eating out every meal, find vacation homes an ideal choice. You park right out front or in the back of the home and can easily bring bikes and extra gear that would be difficult to have in a hotel room.

Our home has two levels. The main floor has 2 bedrooms with Queen sized beds, a family/living room, dining area, kitchen, bathroom with claw foot tub with attached shower and a small sun room. The lower level has been recently updated with a bedroom with two full sized beds, a family room that has a hide a bed, laundry area and a two basin sink and walk in shower bathroom.

We love staying in this home ourselves, as it has high ceilings and tall windows. The general vibe is very coastal. The porch swing was built by a young couple that previously owned the home. We spend evenings swinging or mornings with our coffee on the front porch:)

The kitchen is stocked with plenty of standard kitchen items, coffee pot, toaster, cookie sheets, etc.

We do not leave items in the refrigerator from previous guests, however there are some condiments, spices, and various items that we do leave for future guests to share.

We provide 6 rolls of toilet paper and 2 paper towel rolls.

While we provide a washer and dryer, we do not provide laundry soap unless a guest purchased it and left it. You might want to pack a few pods.

We enjoy helping our guests with local suggestions for dining, day trip ideas, or anything to help you familiarize with the area.

We hope this helps you in your search for a vacation spot. We would love to share our home with you. :)
