About Ann and Chris England

We have been visiting Coeur d'Alene since our kids were tiny and have always dreamed of having a place of our own here. We have been using VRBO to rent homes for our family vacation for years, as it makes for a much more relaxing vacation and more affordable than a hotel as you can cook your own meals!

Ann and Chris England purchased this Cottage in 2012

Why Ann and Chris England chose Fort Grounds

We love it for the same reasons you will. It's in the perfect neighborhood for enjoying the lake and downtown CDA. Our home is cozy and has the unique character that new homes just don't have.

What makes this Cottage unique

We love sitting on the back deck in the evening, listening to the summer breeze rustle the leaves of the tall trees, and being able to walk to our favorite restaurants.

                                                                This place is great! Had everything we needed and then some. The kitchen was very well stocked and equipped with everything you might need. Very clean. Kick in the fireplace and it was cozy warm. Would think in the Summer this place is perfect with a 10 minute walk to downtown and the waterfront.

                                                                Wonderful winter cottage for Christmas holiday!

                                                                We enjoyed your lovely cottage. Very well appointed and clean in quiet Fort Ground neighborhood. Very close to the lake and winter festivities, shopping and restaurants. We loved the cozy living room and ambience of the fireplace on cold winter eves. Thank you for sharing your home and Happy New Year!

                                                                Cozy and well appointed cottage in great location

                                                                This is such a sweet and cozy cottage just minutes walking distance from the lake and North Idaho College (which I visited for work). Walking to the main part of town, the resort, and the park is also easy. In the fall the front windows frame beautiful yellow leaves. I enjoyed having the claw foot tub and fireplace since it was a bit chilly! Everything is very clean, homey, and tasteful.

                                                                We'll be back!

                                                                Exceptionally clean and thoughtfully equipped! Our group of five (two adults, three teens) enjoyed a comfortable weekend stay in this lovely cottage. Great location in a quiet neighborhood. We had plenty of room to spread out and relax. We hope to return soon!

                                                                A beautiful home with a serene backyard.

                                                                The home was adorable, very well equipped with everything we needed, was close to town, and had a little backyard sanctuary. We could have been more pleased.

                                                                Our cottage is located in the very heart of the Fort Grounds neighborhood. Just a few minutes walk to Lake Coeur d'Alene, the Spokane River, City Park, and City Beach. The fantastic galleries, restaurants, and shops on Sherman Avenue are also an easy walk. When the lake and city are alive with summer travelers, we like to ride our bicycles everywhere as it's quick and there is no need to find a parking spot. In fact, the Centennial Bike Trail runs through the neighborhood and goes all of the way to Spokane. You might also follow the trail out to the famous CDA Resort Golf Course.
