Property description

This spacious house has almost always been the home of a doctor, beginning with Dr Dwyer in the 1920's, Dr Carlson in the 1940's, and Dr Don and Dr Jane Gumprecht in 1951.

The Gumprecht children, three of whom are themselves doctors, now offer this gracious accommodation for your vacation enjoyment. Situated in the historic, peaceful Fort Grounds Neighborhood, it is right in the middle of all that makes Coeur d'Alene famous.

The neighborhood was born before the automobile, when everyone walked. It remains within easy walking distance of most everything. Confirm this by doing a map search of Military Drive. Then review the web sites of the CDA Visitors Bureau and the nearby Coeur d'Alene Resort for a complete run down of the area's attractions, close in and farther out, summer and winter.

If you can tolerate purple prose, read VRBO listing #185852 for further descriptions of neighborhood history. The Doctors' Inn has been refurbished with one new and one renovated bathroom (the half bath retains its 1957 pink glory). The kitchen appliances are new.

There are now 3 cable TV's, Broadband, a game room with foosball, Wii, board games, cards, toys, and the like. Sleeping space is ample and we are pleased with the preparations made to accommodate families with small children. We intend for everyone to have a vacation of cherished memories.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1951

About the owner: Dr Donald M. Gumprecht and Dr Jane Gumprecht purchased this house in 1951 and raised a family of four: Donald George, Ruth, Tom, and Ernest. The boys went on to become physicians and Ruth's daughter, Heather, is a physician as well. Interestingly, two prior doctors had owned the house earlier in the 20th century also. In order to keep the house in the family and preserve it for family gatherings, the Gumprecht children have decided to offer it for vacation rental. As such, it is suitable for use by other parties with similar needs, particularly families with children. Many small Gumprecht feet have padded their way to the beach, the park, and downtown.

Why the Owner Chose Garden District, Coeur d'Alene, ID, USA:
The city of Coeur d'Alene grew next to Fort Sherman out of which eventually was subdivided the Fort Grounds neighborhood. This explains why the location of the Doctors' Inn is so close to all of the attractions that make Coeur d'Alend famous: the beach, the park, excursion boat rides, downtown shops and eateries to name a few. Of necessity everything was within walking distance in the early days and it remains so today.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
6 bedrooms sleep 11 with 3 tv's a basement game room (tv, wii, foosball, airhockey board games, cards, toys). An ample dining room with large table, good-sized tv room, large living room, sun room with tv, proximity to the Coeur d'Alene Resort, all of the downtown and waterfront activities.
