Why Mary Crosby chose Hayden

Our home was built by Bing Crosby in 1956 and now my brother and I have it for the next generation. It is a very special home with unique features. The home actually was featured in American Home Journal in 1956. Featuring every room and the history of the property. You will be able to read the article in each room!

What makes this house unique

This property wraps around the lake providing easy access to the water. It is a single story log cabin with a unique guest house for added privacy. Great location for making family memories!!!!

The home is an original log cabin from 1956 with all original fixtures! this home will take you back in time as well as create new memories!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Phil,

Thank you so much for the tremendous opportunity to rent your Hayden Lake retreat. We took great care to give the property our full respect and to leave it just as we found it. It is a fascinating snapshot into the past. We were awed by the rich Crosby Family history and are honored to have had the opportunity to vacation in such a beautiful spot.

The dock is a key asset and we had some grateful neighbors out for swimming and tubing on the 4th of July. With temperatures hovering at 100 degrees, being submerged in the lake was the best place to spend the day. A great time was had by all. It was quite a bonus to see the 4th of July fireworks from the best vantage point on the lake.

It was undoubtedly the most relaxing and enjoyable vacation that we have ever had. We are extremely grateful and, given that we are nearby, if there is anything we can do in the future to help you deal with the property from a distance, please do not hesitate to call. We hope that we can rent from you again in the future and hope to have the chance to meet you in person some day. Thanks again,

Mark & Lynn

Excellant - Relaxing and Comfortable !

  • 5 of 5

We have enjoyed many visits to the Crosby home over many years. The home is always a welcome reprieve from the hustle of life. Our family enjoys beautiful Hayden Lake and the warm summers spent mostly in and on the water. Mary has been a great hostess and we appreciate her warmth and hospitality in making sure our stay each year is so wonderful.

Property was an A++++++++Perfect location + dock + view...Fantastic home

  • 3 of 5

No cookware that was useable. Had to purchase at local store.

Curtains were not manageable or missing so sun came in 10 foot sliders and heat was unbearable. No screens on sliders so open doors to release heat, mice came in.

No A/C. Not enuf fans. Couldn't be in living room area from 1pm-8pm due to heat (August).

Plenty of room, comfortable beds, lovely history..++++++++

We still had a great time w family. Would not do in summer months unless curtains fixed.

My family has been to this location many times. It has always been an amazing place to travel to. Our children have many fond memories of the dock and the lake. The rooms are comfortable and spacious. The owners are accommodating and friendly.

We hope to make many more memories at this beautiful location.

Montana family of 8 from Judith Gap Montana

  • 5 of 5

We sooo enjoyed our stay at the Bibg Crosby family home. What a step back in time...and seeing all the pictures of how it was with Mr. Bing Crosby and family living there was wonderful. I can just imagine the fun times spent there by all. The family photo books look like you Crosbys know how to have a great time. The dock is a real plus for swimming and diving and we so enjoyed our two days of boating from Nels...what a great guy! We also enjoyed supper over at the Mariana and it was great to drive his new pontoon and park right up to the restaurant. The beautiful stone deck was so enjoyable and the evenings sitting they were spectacular....a quiet place. So nice to see the American flag in the back yard. It has been great to talk with Mary and Bing as we made the reservations. Thank you again for letting us stay and opening you home to us. We highly recommend this beautiful home and sure hope to come back!

AWESOME Home, grounds, lake and people

  • 5 of 5

I have had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful Hayden lake property for the last three years. The Bing Crosby home is right out of the fifties, it has charm,warmth and beauty. You can relax all day on the huge stone deck, or just a hundred feet away you can be fishing or sunbathing from your own private dock.

The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The living room has a large stone fireplace ( but did not need it in July). The lake is beautiful and uncrowded. We rented a ski boat and had a great time playing on the lake.

The people are very friendly and there are lots of things to do to keep you having fun. I highly recommend this place for a wonderful family vacation

A trip I can't wait to go on again!

  • 5 of 5

This was such an amazing house to stay in! From start to finish, I loved every minute of it. The road that takes you out to the house gives you a good idea of how big the lake is and also lets you take in the beauty of the area. It's so peaceful and calm. The location of the house is perfect! It's on one of the few real points of the lake that gives you views from so many different angles. As soon as you step into the house, it feels like you're stepping back in time. The kitchen, the living room, the bedrooms, bathrooms, and even Bing's bar area is all original. The original design of the house makes it feel like home away from home and brings you and your family/friends closer together.

Lake accessibility is so easy with the dock! Being able to rent a boat from the marina just across the lake also makes it a great place to stay if you're looking for a boating experience but don't have one.

Also the proximity to Montana was fantastic! We drove over to Montana to bike the Hiawatha Trail and it was so much fun! A really easy drive, and a really amazing experience. It's also a short and easy drive into Downtown Coeur D'Alene where there are SO many great restaurants and things to do.

I loved everything about this house and loved being able to have friends and family staying under the same roof. It's perfect for family vacations, bachelor/bachelorette parties, and a vacation with friends.

I can't wait to go back!
