Large 5 BR 4 Bath Waterfront Home - Open All Year
WELCOME!! Come and share our exclusive, secluded waterfront home on beautiful Spirit Lake, one of the best kept secrets in the North Idaho lake district. Enjoy the slower pace, serene beauty, and warmer water that surrounding lakes just don't offer any more. Enjoy easy access to hiking, biking, great fishing, wildlife viewing, and lots of water sports in the summer months just outside your front door! Kayaks and paddle boat included so you can explore the natural beauty of the lake at your own pace. Ice fishing, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, sledding, and absolute solitude make this a one-of-a kind retreat in the winter months. We chose Spirit Lake because it has the warm water of a smaller lake without the congestion or commercialization of nearby lakes. It offers forested shorelines with a mountain drop back, small bays and islands to explore, and abundant wildlife.
The house is nestled in the trees on 100' of private lake frontage and offers 3000 feet of living space on three levels with 5 bedrooms and 4 baths and room for up to 10 guests. ($50/night extra guests up to 12 with air mattress, foot pump, and pillows/comforter set available upon request.)
Enjoy three levels of decking including private decks off master suite and one additional lakefront bedroom, all with spectacular views of the lake and mountains. We have two outdoor eating areas with ample seating and modern gas grill. Kid's Cave with bunk beds, sofa, and entertainment system provides an area for kids to hang out away from adult bedrooms and great room. Game table/poker table, games, books, and DVD library. Spacious private master suite with king bed.
Before you submit an inquiry, please read below to see what's included with rental. Thank you! Additional amenities include private boat dock with room for multiple watercraft, safe swimming area with ladder onto dock, hot tub just off the water with seasonal outdoor shower (available in the summer), use of 3 one-man fishing kayaks and paddle boat included in rental, and convenient driveway parking for up to four cars and parking spot for one boat trailer.
The main level has a spacious kitchen with an eating bar (seats 6), adjacent formal dining area with seating for 8, well appointed great room with entertainment system including oversized TV, BluRay, DVD, and a cozy wood burning fireplace for the colder months. Linens, towels, cookware, large gas BBQ grill, dishes, utensils and most pantry basics included as well as blender, hand mixer, waffle iron, and toasters. Large screen TV and two additional TVs, all with DVD players. Handicap accessible on the main floor only which is level with the driveway, other floors involve stairs (no handicapped accessible bedrooms, half bath is accessible).
Enjoy your get-away free from the constant bombardment of technology such as wifi and dish TV so you can take advantage of family time together and experience the peace and tranquility of nature's beauty. 3G and 4G-LTE are available through major cellular carriers like Verizon and AT&T for the times you need to check into civilization. We use our own personal cellular "hot spot" for internet with good results (our Verizon hot spot is not included in rental).
Unfortunately we can't welcome guests with jet skis, loud stereos, or drones since these activities impinge on the enjoyment of others. Due to allergies, we are unable to accommodate pets.
We offer great off-season pricing so check out our calendar for openings during the fall, winter and spring season. Perhaps some cross country skiing or ice fishing for kokanee this winter? Warm up around the fireplace or take a dip in the hot tub! Spring and fall are some of the most beautiful and serene times of the year if you are looking for a quiet retreat. These times offer little traffic on the water and great wildlife viewing of bald eagles, osprey, blue heron, and moose.

About Michael Chadduck
Our family of five live nearby in Spokane, WA and we love spending time at the lake throughout the year. Our children grew up swimming and water skiing in the warm, calm water of Spirit Lake and still enjoying getting away and back to nature as a family. We love waking up to the sound of gentle waves against the shore and the mist coming down from the mountains to cover the island. We also enjoy sharing the beauty and fun of the lake with others when we can! We hope you enjoy your stay and love Spirit Lake as much as we do.
Michael Chadduck purchased this House in 2011
Why Michael Chadduck chose Kootenai County
Spirit Lake is one of North Idaho's hidden gems...off the beaten path without the crowds and noise and egos now common on some of the higher profile lakes in the region. Spirit Lake offers a quiet family-oriented feeling with clean water and good times. After looking at properties for years, we bought on Spirit because we think it is the very best lake in the region!
What makes this House unique
Our lake home is located at the remote end of one of Idaho's mountain lakes. Tucked into the forest, the home sits right on the water and offer awesome southern views and exposures year round. No busy roads or city noise out here!

Perfect house for our family celebration
Large house with plenty of bedrooms for everyone! Open space on the main floor where we could all gather or spilt off and enjoy some smaller group time. The hot tub was a big hit with the kids and the adults!
We took a hike in the snow a short distance from the house and climbed high enough to get a fantastic view of the snowy lake. Recommend for a family of up to 10.
Spacious and Beautiful
We spent 6 nights on Spirit Lake in early September and it was absolutely perfect. The house had everything we needed for a comfortable, feels like home, stay. Morning Walks, afternoon lazing and Nightly Star Gazing were just part of one of the most relaxing vacations ever! Thanks Michael and Family for sharing your beautiful place with us - would love to go back!
Loved our stay at Spirit Lake! The home was spacious but cozy and the views were spectacular!! We would definitely return!!
We are making plans to return next summer
The house was perfect and the kitchen was very well stocked
Amazing home! Even better lake front experience!

Surrounded by beauty, this lake house offers everything for a excellent relaxing vacation.
