About Susie Cook

We purchased our property at Priest Lake in 1994. I used to call it the 'most expensive camping spot in the world'. We had the shell built about 10 years ago and had intended to finish the inside ourselves. After many years of trying, we decided to go ahead and let the professionals complete it. The inside was just completed July, 2012. Better late than never! Now it's ready for you and I to enjoy.

Susie Cook purchased this house in 1995

Why Susie Cook chose Coolin

We have the nicest beach in Huckleberry Bay. We were the first people to buy property on our shoreline. When we heard it was opening up for sale we came in by boat before the road was in and scoped out the best beach. When the lots went on the market, we were ready to pounce on the best one.

What makes this house unique

You will love the light, breezy feeling of our home. Most homes on this lake have a dark, cabiny feel. Ours was intentionally built to be just the opposite. We enjoy the beautiful views of the water and our beach from the open verandas on each level.

Perfect place for our annual summer vacation with our married kids and grandkids.

  • 5 of 5

Exceptionally clean and very well appointed “cabin”. Two beautiful large decks that look out over Priest Lake. The dock is excellent for mooring our ski boat and playing in the water. We love this place!!

Beautiful home on a spectacular location at Priest Lake

  • 5 of 5

My family thoroughly enjoyed our week's stay in this beautiful home on the pristine Priest Lake. We were so pleased with the house layout, the comfortable four bedrooms, open living area, modern kitchen, double decks and of course the view of Priest Lake! Everyone felt at home and had so much fun! We absolutely loved our stay on this property and highly recommend it to future vacationers!

Great family vacation on peaceful shores of Preist Lake

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay over July 4th week and would love to return again! Fireworks from neighbors around the lake were spectacular. Susie was very responsive host to our questions before and during our stay. The home was very clean with easy keypad access upon arrival. Perfect amount of space for our group of 3 couples with one child each. Beautifully furnished home with great lakefront views and porch access for 3 of 4 bedrooms. Well furnished kitchen and linens, beds very comfortable. We all enjoyed the ping pong, games, and fooseball on rainy days and throughout our stay. Great beach, fire pit and dock for our boat and enough room off the road above the house to park a boat trailer. Great location north of the narrows to access Elkins Resort and North end of the lake by boat. GPS coordinates were spot on for locating the house by boat and car. Good sun exposure well into the evening and sunsets were spectacular. We launched our boat at Indian Creek campground which was about 25 min ride with our pontoon boat. Several trout and bass caught while trolling and from the dock. Lots of space, quiet getaway away from the rat race. Thank-you for renting your beautiful home on our favorite lake to visit!

Outstanding Stay at Hummingbird Haven

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Hummingbird Haven was outstanding! The home is located in a more quiet area of Priest Lake (Huckleberry Bay), which was perfect for our group. The house is spacious with a great floor plan for a larger group. The kitchen can get a little tight if several people are fixing meals, but the dining room, living room, and deck are all in close proximity to the kitchen, which allows for easy conversations while getting ready for dinner or feeding kids, etc. There is ample space in the utility/laundry room for extra food storage. (There is only one fridge, so we stored coolers in the utility room.) The beds were very comfortable, and there were plenty of linens and towels. The beach area is fabulous and easy to access, and the docks are in excellent condition. The driveway is a little steep, so be cautious if you're pulling a trailer. The owner is wonderful. She was responsive, professional, and attentive throughout the months leading up to our stay, and during our actual stay. Any time we had a question, she got back to us immediately. We asked if she had a slow cooker -- and she went out and bought one for the house! I highly recommend Hummingbird Haven.
