About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

We looked for years for this wonderful lake and house!!

Our lake front family home sits at the end of a quiet bay near Sunset Beach, known for its great fishing. Situated on the east side of Hayden Lake, our home is far enough away from town to feel rural and secluded yet close enough to Hayden and Coeur d’ Alene for convenient shopping for supplies at a variety of stores like Costco, Albertsons, or Wal-Mart.

The gentle slope from home down to the beach with west facing exposure means long summer days in the sun enjoying all the outdoor amenities our home has to offer including – private beach and boat dock, three kayaks, paddleboat, corn hole game, numerous inner tubes, beach chairs, outdoor fire pit, barbecue, picnic table, and outdoor shower.

Young children especially like playing down by the beach in our full-size dollhouse/clubhouse with two bunk beds inside.

We love lingering over evening meals on the expansive porch overlooking the lake and sunset beyond.

Inside amenities include Jacuzzi tub, Internet service, two TVs, DVD player, VHS player, ping-pong table, board games, and a large collection of books and puzzles.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a stainless steel oven, microwave, two refrigerators, toaster, coffee maker, and Kitchen Aid mixer.

Sleeping accommodations have flexibility with space for 8 -10 people. The master bedroom is on the entry-level with a king size bed and adjoining bathroom. Also on the entry-level is a den/office with desk, printer and scanner and pull out futon queen size bed.

The lower level of the house has two bedrooms each with queen size beds. The very large utility room is furnished with a trundle bed, additional futon, and washer and dryer. The downstairs den has a queen size pull out sleeper couch. The downstairs bathroom has two sinks and a tub shower. Just outside is an outdoor shower built at the forest edge.

Hayden Lake, with 40 miles of shoreline is free of crowds and has plenty of coves and inlets making it a great lake for waterskiing, jet skiing, sailing and fishing. It is shallow enough to be warm in the summer. For those of us who hate cold water, you can swim in the lake without a wet suit throughout the summer months.

Boats are available for rental at Hayden Marina on the lake. There are two public boat launch ramps. Honeysuckle Beach is at the southwest end of the lake and Sportsmen Access is at the northeast end of the lake.

Your dogs are welcome to join you on your vacation at our home for an additional fee.


The town of Hayden is 45 minutes by car due east from Spokane, Washington International Airport, a small comfortable airport with direct flights from many cities across the United States.

Coeur d’ Alene, a charming nearby city with its larger lake, historic main street, arts festivals, and great restaurants is about 30 minutes from our home.

This area of northern Idaho it is also known for over 50 great golf courses and Silverwood Amusement Park is about 45 minutes due north.

For winter fun, Schweitzer Mountain, Idaho’s foremost ski area is located about 1 ½ hours to the north just outside of Sandpoint, Idaho.

Please come and enjoy our wonderful home.

Peaceful place for family stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every bit of our stay. The property was as-advertised and our stay over Labor Day and the following week made for a calm lake with relatively little other boat traffic.

I love this lake - I grew up in the area and boated it regularly.

One point of clarification for those considering it: during our stay (first week of Sept) the small bay serving this home was mostly grown with millweed, making swimming off the dock undesirable, though there was still a small clear sand area in front of the sand beach for our littlest children to swim.

Housewares, beach toys, and kayaks provided by the homeowner included everything that we needed. AC works great and each room is surprisingly large.

I would recommend bringing a powerboat to fully enjoy all that Hayden lake has to offer. It will be well guarded while moored at the dock in this small, protected bay.

The internet is better suited for checking email and news than watching videos, or heavy bandwidth use. Hard to expect much better since you're located on the edge of National Forest that spans between this cabin and Montana.

We would rent here again.

Fabulous summer home that is very welcoming with an at home feel from the moment we walked in.

The peaceful setting is fulfilling to all ages. Hated to leave and look forward to returning! I'm grateful for this experience for my family!

More than expected!!

  • 5 of 5

I met the owners in my place of business where they were buying items for their lake house and they told me how the rent it out when they are not there. They were so passionate about it, we decided to rent it for a family event.

All I can say is WOW, the pictures do not show the complete beauty of the house or the property. It was the best rental house vacation we have ever had for all ages and some with disabilities. We had friends come from Spokane with their boats for the day and they fell in love with the place also, we will be coming back.

I was here with two other writers for a writing retreat for five days. The accommodations are spacious. The large individual rooms offer privacy, while the homey common rooms are great to share meals and stories. With spectacular views, we walked and hiked the many trails and roads around the lake. There is plenty of room for families. We kayaked one morning and enjoyed the calmness of the lake. It was a relaxing, picturesque place to unwind, enjoy scenery, and pursue a variety of activities. I would recommend it for families and other groups, large and small. We will definitely return.

A True Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This home has more room and is even nicer than the pictures. Two families had plenty of room. We brought our boat and scooters and totally enjoyed our time. It was one of those rare times when I felt I got a true vacation. After boating around the whole lake, we felt that this location was among the best on the whole lake. All the little "extras" like the boat, kayak and floaties were a nice addition. The owners were very nice and communicated well.

Fantastic lake front home...

  • 5 of 5

This home lived up to our expectations and beyond! Located in a serene little bay with lots of privacy. The paddle boat and kayak were a real kit with all of us....grandparents and adult children with grandkids! We also rented a ski boat from a company not on the lake, KJ Watersports and they were great.... Delivered the boat to the lake with all the gear that we requested. And then came to pick it up from the lake. Much more affordable than the marina rentals on the lake! The outdoor shower was awesome... Would love to go back every year but it is so far away from San Diego. Owners were very helpful with any questions we had. Highly recommend this beautiful home away from home!😊 All the other reviews were right on!!!

Owner's Response: We are always happy to hear that our home lived up to expectations of our guests and even happier to hear that expectations were surpassed. Thanks for the reference about boat rentals. We weren't aware of KJ Watersports and can now pass the information on to other guests.
