About the Property

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 13-15)

Wecome to the 'Moose Cove Lodge'.Our private home for the past 34 yrs, on Lower Twin Lake just above Rathdrum, Idaho. The Lodge accommodates sleeping for 13 adults.It is a spacious and wonderful place to relax and enjoy plus entertain families and friends year round!It has provided us a fantastic 'window' to view the beautiful nature of North Idaho. From seeing a 42' Northern Pike being caught at the 2nd dock north of us, just 2 years ago. The flocks of ducks and geese in their spring and fall passages. Coyotes and deer moving across the winter's ice, the summer residents of Osprey and Eagles making a living by diving to pluck fresh fish meals from the waters of Twin. Watch the deer and moose splashing and drinking from the lake at our beach!

You too can enjoy 'Summers' of fun with catching some sun, great swimming, fishing, kayaking, water skiing or other water fun on both Lower Twin or Upper Twin Lakes. You can travel 10 minutes from your door step and play 18 holes of golf, get groceries and go to a restaurant or adventure 20 minutes to Silver Wood Theme and Water Park or CoeuD'Alene Lake and Iron Man or venture 40 minutes to Spokane with Bloomsday or Hoopfest! The 'fall' brings the colorful beautiful fall foliage plus flocks of ducks and geese on their southward trek that give 'kool' kayak adventures around the Lower Lake and up thru the channel to the Upper Twin Lakes!

'Winter' brings ice skating, snowmobiling, sledding and cross country skiing on and around the lake plus there is 3 snow skiing resorts including Mt Spokane, Schweitzer Mountain and Silver Mountain are all within 75 miles and gives you a variety of different slopes! 'Spring' brings the return of the water fowl and spring flowers for that 'Springtime getaway and relaxing adventures of paddling around the lakes!'

Moose Cove Lodge has 50 ft of nice, 'children friendly' beach that has a 10' x 40' dock to tie up your boat! We furnish 4 lake kayaks, a canoe, and paddle boat for water fun! (Use these at your own risk).

At waters edge there is lawn plus there is a patio area surrounded by tiki torches, with lots of seating, a swing and a large fire pit where 'yummy' smores are made and of course camp songs and stories are told that help create wonderful lifetime memories with your family and friends! Everything on the main floor and to the lake is accessible for wheel chairs

Now to the 'Heart' of 'Moose Cove Lodge' that had its start in 1914 as a screened in sleeping cabin and has emerged as a 2500 sq ft Lodge with a rustic log exterior and a Craftsman/log theme inside! Just 30' from the beach is the Lodges's lakeside, 11 x 29, covered deck where you get that 'Special Eagles's view' keeping an eye on the kids playing in the water and on the beach or other activities on the lake! The deck is furnished with a large natural gas BBQ, propane deck heater (if needed for cool evenings), deck tables and chairs for your daytime and evening enjoyment with special lantern lighting.

From the deck you step into the main floor 'Great Room' with Knotty Hickory floors that are heated Hydronicly (hot water floor heat thru out the lodge) which includes a 'living room' with lots of seating around a rock fireplace that is fun and cozy no matter what the weather may be. A cozy fire is a great way to start your day with a morning cup of coffee or close the day out with a glass of your favorite beverage in the evening! Then there is the family dining and the kitchen area with Knotty Hickory cabinets backed with tile backsplash including imported tile behind the gas range/oven. All the comforts of home include double door refer, dishwasher, hot water dispenser and convection microwave in this fully furnished kitchen! You just need to bring you own food and beverages for your families dream week at 'Moose Cove Lodge'!

Behind the great room is a carpeted family/game room that has a slate pool table plus table and chairs for some of the many games and puzzles furnished. There is a 42' flat screen TV for playing games, DVD's, CDs,VCR or Wii game or your game boxes. Guests can play here and can make lots of noise in this area without disturbing other family conversations and activities in the great room as it is insulated for sound.

Sleeping accommodations consist of beds for 13. The main floor master bedroom is on the lakeside with a beautiful view! It has a king,select bed plus it's own bathroom with 2 sinks and a very popular 'steam shower' with an extra rain shower head! The 2nd bedroom on the main floor has a double bed and is adjacent to the main floor's bath with stacked washer/dryer and iron and ironing board.

Upstairs sleeping consists of private bedroom with a lake view! This bedroom is finished with 60-80 yr old reclaimed cedar from the original cabin and this room is furnished with a queen bed, grandma's rocker, a single bed and a port-a-crib. Adjacent to the Montana Rustic Cedar Rail by the stairway landing is a Queen bed that also has a lake view. Down the hall is a full bath, that includes a separate 4' shower and a reclaimed claw foot tub! The loft area over the family room has the Montana Rustic Cedar railings too. The loft is furnished with a table and chairs, a queen bed and 2 single beds. Up a short starway from the loft is the entrance to the 2 car garage. There is also parking outside for 5 additional vehicles. The 'Lodge' has year round access by a level road just 500' from a paved and maintained county road.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1978

About the owner: We have been involved in residential construction and real estate for over 40 yrs. Susan was born in Iowa and moved to Spokane, Wash in 68 and Spokane is Wes's home town! We are a active couple whether it be kayaking on the lake, adventuring around in our motorhome.Participating in the Bloomsday run, or being spectators of high school or college sports! Go WSU Cougars and Gonzaga Bulldogs!!

Why the Owner Chose Twin Lakes, ID, USA:
We purchased the 800' cabin in 1978 for the use of our young family! We liked the fact that it was just 35 minutes from our Spokane home making it easy to commute and the Twin Lake atmosphere made us feel that we are way out in the country! Yet we are just 10 minutes from golfing and an easy distance to shopping and restaurants!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Walk out your door and you can take your morning walk or jog down a quiet country lane or if you are a distance swimmer, Twin is a great lake for a calm swim accomponied by a kayaker! Afternoon you can take your kids for a stroll down the lane to the Old Resort to the 'little' store for a ice cream cone! The road to the cabin is a short distance from the black top, and it is plowed in the winter, and flat, easy access.
