Amazing views and creature comforts

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing time at DayStar lodge. The house was beautifully kept, nicely stocked and those views!! We made very few plans to do much else, other than just hang out at the lake and relax. The kids had a great time (4 kids, ranging in age from 11-17) as there was always something to do, and town wasn't far. We went shopping in Post Falls and went to Silverwood one day, which is highly recommeded. Most meals we cooked at the house, but it was nice to know Pizza Hut delivered, which was a great treat one night!

We would definitely consider staying in the future or at any other A-List properties. Wendy was very accommodating and answered all the questions we had. The information book was very helpful as well. Thank you for making our vacation easy, relaxing and enjoyable! :)

3-Day Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for solitude, this is the place. We enjoyed the top unit at the Twin Lakes cabin as a respite for our hard-working daughter and a couple friends who are attending a nearby university. We stocked up on all our favorite foods and hunkered down and watched the snow fall. We enjoyed the spa, watched movies, read, played cards, took walks, meandered around downtown Couer d' Alene (30ish minutes drive), we even shoe skated out on the frozen lake - absolutely no timeline - what a gift to ourselves. The cabin is fully stocked - can not think of a need that wasn't met. Wendy was available before, during and after our stay - no question unanswered. We will likely come back as our daughter is only a freshman! We think the summer would be a lot of fun too - the lake and boats out the back door look very enticing!

Wonderful Vacation Memories

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying at the twin lakes home for a week long vacation with my daughter, Grandchildren and four year old Great Granddaughter. We rented both floors and I can honestly say that there was something in the house for all the activities you want on a vacation . The layout of the house, gorgeous yards, tables and chairs, along with all the amenities that come with the house are suitable for all ages and are of very good quality. The attention to detail on everything from the spices and silverware in the kitchen cabinets to the life jackets and fishing poles in the boat house were excellent. If you're looking for a quality place to have a vacation or getaway, with unmatched views and a place that just feels like a home, then my suggestion would be stay here. Without question this was our best family vacation ever.

Memorial Weekend Memory Maker

  • 5 of 5

This Twin Lake home was the perfect spot for our family to spend time together. So pleased that our cousins found this gem and that we could rent the lower unit to utilize the ample sleeping space. I loved that there were plenty of dining chairs and leaves to extend the dining table. Having space for everyone around the table at dinner was lovely!

The kitchen was so well supplied and items were easy to find. The home was very clean and comfortable and tastefully decorated. Even though the weather was cool, we had a blast canoeing and fishing. Our 14 year old caught a large mouth bass that will likely be the biggest he EVER catches.

Thank you for the lovely long weekend, Wendy!

Oh, and of course the lake is gorgeous but the landscaping should not go unmentioned. Beautiful plants and flowers everywhere!

Wonderful Lake Home

  • 4 of 5

My sweetie and I spent a long weekend at Wendy's lakeside home. It was the perfect spot for peace, quiet and relaxation. We cooked at the house and found virtually everything we needed in the well stocked kitchen. We also enjoyed the bbq. We visited in (what I assume is) a quieter time of year and I highly recommend doing so for couples looking for a peaceful getaway. The house is nicely updated and very comfortable.

Unbelievable great

  • 5 of 5

Everything possible was provided. The views and lots of seating options for games and meals. We took lots of stuff up that we didn't need to bring like spices, games, water toys. Neighbors were friendly and directions perfect. It was close to Coeur d'lene, Silverwood and Sandpoint. You could stay there and be happy or sight see. We rented both floors but could see that it would be possible to only do one floor and still have fun. We had a dog, and she was safe and happy..

About Wendy

We love Twin Lakes! This is our third vacation rental that we have bought here, we recently sold the first two smaller ones that we had been renting to guests to buy this larger home that will hold our family during our vacations. We take a lot of pleasure in helping our guests enjoy the little bit of time they have to get away from daily life and hopefully relax and reconnect in a meaningful way with their family and friends at the lake. We don't take this lightly so we try to provide you with quality value for your time away from it all so you feel refreshed when you go back to your "real life"!

Wendy purchased this house in 2015

Why Wendy chose Twin Lakes

This is such a great location if you enjoy just relaxing or being busy on your vacation. There are many ways to enjoy the outdoors with activities such as fishing, golfing, hiking, or wildlife watching. If you are into more touristy activities the cities of Sandpoint, Coeur d'Alene or Spokane are close by. And of course if laying on the dock or sitting on the deck with a cup of coffee relaxing is what you like to do then just stay at the house and enjoy!

What makes this house unique

In my opinion one of the most enjoyable aspects about our particular location on Twin Lakes is the beautiful view of the mountains right across the lake from us.
