About Brianne Ball
We are a family of 5 who moved here from San Diego 13 years ago. We have 3 girls and are self employed. We fell in love with the community of CDA because of all it has to offer but especially it's friendliness!
Brianne Ball purchased this House in 2016
Why Brianne Ball chose Coeur d'Alene
We love this side of the lake. We are out in the country but still very close to town. The late afternoon sun is a bonus as the days are that much longer!

relaxing week on the lake
House was perfect. Location was great. Once down to the water the lake there was perfect for our paddle boards. Very clean and the decks were great spaces to enjoy the lake sunsets or read a book. Great stay.
4th of July Stay
Walking into this rental was breathtaking! The features of the home and the view of the lake was everything we wanted and more. The home is well stocked with most everything you would need for cooking. There are a lot of stairs so be prepared for a workout if you forget anything in the kitchen when you are hanging out by the water. It certainly won’t be a deterrent from renting this place again though. The deck is peaceful for relaxing in the evening and enjoying conversation with friends. On the grass, you have a perfect view of the 4th of July fireworks at the resort. We loved the location and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We hope to be back again!
Glad you enjoyed your stay and thanks for your sweet review😁
Tall Ball house
Beautiful house, well stocked and lots of room. It could use some darker coverings for the windows so you can sleep in. Only bummer is the bay and tons of seaweed so you could not jump off the dock or swim in the bay. Neighbors said they usually don't have that problem.
Owner is very nice and any questions you have are answered quickly.
Thanks and glad you enjoyed your stay:) Your suggestion of adding curtains and shades for sleeping in on vacation was taken...hoping our guests can now sleep in a little longer:)
Don't miss out on the Tall Ball House
Our time at the Tall Ball House was a great adventure. We felt spoiled in the main living area, gorgeous and perfect for our family. Plenty of seating around the table (6 adults/3 kiddos) & the living room was spacious as well. The kitchen is beautiful & well-appointed with massive windows & great views The deck has lots of seating where you can read, bbq or take in the beauty of the location.
The 2 bdrms on the 2nd fl are lovely w/very comfortable soft beds & share a deck. Ea bdrm has its own spacious lav w/ plenty of towels.
The basement has 1 beautiful bdrm. The 4th bed, a full, is in an open room that you walk thru to get to the bdrm. There are no curtains on the windows & the main door to the backyard & lake are in this rm.
The laundry room came in handy & we appreciated the extra beach towels.
The backyard was great. We made s’mores in the large fire pit, enjoyed the trampoline, & floated in the lake. The outside shower came in handy as well.
There was plenty of room to park 3 cars in the 2-car garage/ in front of the garage w/roadside parking above the house on Boisen. There is an extra fridge/freezer in the garage.
Judy, who manages the home, is two doors down. Any ?s were answered quickly. She’s a gem.
You carry out your own garbage/recycle. Not an issue as the drop off is on W. Kidd Island Road. It’s an easy stop as you’re on your way to Silverwood Theme and Water Park in Atholl (a 30-minute drive), or to one of the many beautiful beaches, or a lovely dinner in Coeur d’Alene.
A couple of notes for future guests with smaller children: This house has a lot of stairs. We happened to know this ahead of time, so we took a tension baby gate with us to keep little ones from tumbling down the stairs. While most of the bedrooms have curtains on the windows, they do not block light for naptimes. The counters throughout the house are extremely high. We loved this, because we are a family of giants, but little ones can’t reach the sink to wash their hands.
The only negative part of our stay was something the Ball’s cannot control. The milfoil in the lake is bad this year (2017), which made it impossible to swim off of the dock without getting tangled in the weeds. Floaties and canoes worked fine, though. We had to carefully navigate the milfoil traveling in and out of the dock in our rented boat.
Bottom line, we would definitely recommend the Tall Ball house. You will love your stay!
Thank you for your great review!!
Great Two Weeks
This house is a great rental if you are looking to visit the Coeur d’ Alene area. It’s on the water, neighbors are great. The views are incredible. Watch Bald Eagle ever morning and night fish. I would highly recommend this house. The owners made our stay great.
Thank you for your kind words and let us know if you move to the area!!
