Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Whatever your plans, North Idaho, and more specifically, “Johnnie’s Cottage”(in honor of Teresa's father), has a lot to offer .We have lived in Cocolalla for 17 years and Lake Cocolalla has been a favorite water sports location for our whole family. We appreciate you considering our accommodations and are excited about sharing our home with you. We will strive to make your stay a pleasant, memorable experience. Family is very important to us and we trust your stay with us will bring you closer to the ones you love. 'Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.' Psalms 16:11

Why the Owner Chose Cocolalla, ID, USA:
There's just no better place on earth to relax, unwind and spend precious time together, than at the water. When my father passed, my dream became to turn his cottage into a place where families, (ours included), could be together and have the time of their lives, in a beautiful wholesome setting with very little effort. We feel we have accomplished this. My father would be pleased.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Johnnie's Cottage is the perfect balance between a private secluded getaway and a sightseers paradise. Conveniently located just 1.5 paved miles from hwy#95.
