About Bob & Priscilla Avey

Lifetime residents on the Pacific Northwest. Second generation owner of this paradise on the water.

Bob & Priscilla Avey purchased this house in 1953

Why Bob & Priscilla Avey chose Priest Lake

'SUMMER SANDS' waterfront property was purchased in the 50's when I was a couple of years old.

My mother told my father, at that time, she would agree to purchase a lake home if...

(1) It didn't have a fast water drop-off

(2) No steep hills to get to cabin or lake

(3) Had a sandy gradual beach

(4) sun exposure most of the day

(5) and was a Deeded Lot (not leased) property........


(In approximately 2007 we replaced the cabin with this lakeside 3600 sf home).

What makes this house unique

The location is perfect. It is at the start or Southeast end of the lake (saves you the dangerous drive up the lake). Only few minutes to the only town on the east-side of lake, 'Coolin' for your all your needed supplies re: gas, food, restaurants,Post Office, or emergencies/ boat & Jet ski rentals etc. (see Leonard Paul Store web site) An easy 30 minute drive to the town of Priest River.

The sunny EAST side is full of fun filled sunny days. Our home is a newer built home completed in 2007. We have a covered 14'x50' beachfront porch that allows you afternoon shade & to be outside and enjoying your vacation even during a summer rain. The westerly sunsets viewed from the east side of lake right off our huge porch and dining room are spectacular. Our bay is in a somewhat protected bay with very little boat traffic allowing safer swimming. The water is also warmer on the southeast part of the lake. Excellent fishing right out in front of home.

There's no place like Priest

  • 5 of 5

For the last few years, my family has had a family reunion at this property. We are a large group, and the cabin is more than accommodating. We love playing out in the sandbar with our Littles. We love cooking meals in the beautiful kitchen. Our kids love meal times out on the deck, and the adults love being on the deck once the kids have gone to bed!!! There are so many different options of things to do in and around the cabin, from canoeing, fishing, spending time on the beach, having a fire pit, or drinking coffee on the Beautiful deck. Also there are many options for not only lake water sports, but hiking, wildlife viewing, going for a run, getting ice cream at Leonard Paul, or having a meal at Cavanaugh's!! We truly appreciate Bob and Priscilla opening their home one week of summer for us! We look forward to coming to priest lake year round!! 51 weeks a year I dream of priest lake...

Priest Lake's Best

  • 5 of 5

My family has been vacationing in Priest Lake for over 20 years and this is our favorite place to stay. This home is PERFECT for families. The kids can play in the water well out to past the dock and still be able to touch. The sandy beach and fire pit are also excellent. We come back every year and make more memories.

The Joy of Priest lake from a Haven in Coolin

  • 5 of 5

We have coming to Priest Lake for 21 years straight in the month of July, and this is the best place we have ever stayed. It was our fourth year in a row. The owners are outstanding and very easy to work with. The home is beautiful with the right mix of modern convenience and a mountain luxury lodge like feel in the public areas. The beach is outstanding, and you can walk out for a long ways and still have water at your waist. The place is tops in our book.

A little slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

We love staying at this wonderful rental with our large family each year. The large covered porch is my favorite place to hang out with a beautiful view of the lake and a swing to enjoy your morning coffee. This area of the lake is a great spot for lake lovers of all ages as there is a large sandbar perfect for water play without fear of a drop off. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking for a large group and easily accommodates multiple cooks in the kitchen. We love this place and can't wait to come back!

Wonderful Family Vacation on Priest Lake

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect location to enjoy Priest Lake at its finest. The best location on the lake for smooth water, beautiful sunsets, and the moon shining on the water. We rented a boat from Crown Jewel as recommended by the Aveys and couldn't have been more pleased with the service. This was a family vacation with three couples and our sweet great granddaughter. The sandy beach and great covered porch were terrific. We had a fun filled week and wish we lived closer to Priest Lake, one of the most beautiful places we have ever been.

Enjoy the white all sand beach in our peaceful protected bay.

We are walking distance (1.9 miles) to the town of Coolin which has the famous Leonard Paul Store (see their web site) which has groceries, souvenirs, Deli and ice cream & Espresso bar, Liquor store, boat/fishing licenses & WiFi.

The Moose Knuckle bar/cafe & Ardys Restaurant is also in town of Coolin for a great breakfast or dinner & of course huckleberry homemade pie and ice cream.

The town of Coolin has 2 free public boat launches and a Marina with boat gas.

We also have a fire station along with 911 emergency service with local Priest Lake ambulance service in Coolin area.

*Indians use to camp on our beach and fish for white fish & trout in Soldier Creek with their spears and bows. We have found numerous arrow heads right on our beach in front of home.

Right out our back door you have perfect mountain bike/SUV riding. Early each morning you will see locals walking and jogging to Coolin for their morning espresso.

Priest Lake 18 hole golf course is only about a 20 minute drive by car or take your boat across the lake and your gold cart awaits you at 'Hills Resort'. Hills is also a very special place to have a dinner by the lake.

Lake Trout & Kokanee are plentiful throughout the lake. We have caught and released 35 LB.Lake trout along with many great eating 2-8# range on light tackle.

~~~ Late Summer/Fall Fishing is a great/best opportunity to land that trophy fish.~~~
