About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bath, Sleeps 6

A quiet and cozy 1930's cottage featuring a king bedroom, a queen bedroom, and a twin bedroom (with 2 twin beds) all on one floor.

The main bathroom has a large shower, and an old-fashioned claw foot tub. A second 'half bath' means no waiting.

The living room features a cozy fireplace, new furniture and a flat panel TV. HD broadcast TV is provided, as well as web-based TV service. There is also a blu-ray player and High Speed Wi-Fi, which is available throughout the cottage.

The kitchen is very nicely equipped with a range and oven, dishwasher, microwave, blender, coffee maker, toaster, pots, pans, dishware, cookware, and bakeware and utensils. The fridge makes ice!

The back yard is a real sanctuary. Mature trees provide privacy while a pond and water feature sing a soothing sound perfect for relaxing. There's a deck that has a patio table with plenty of seating and a brand new gas grill for outdoor cooking.

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 Coeur d'Alene

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.

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.

Perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage has everything you need and more. Beautifully decorated, very clean with fully stocked kitchen, laundry, ironing board, games, DVD's, comfy beds and plenty of outlets. The back yard was gorgeous with a waterfall and pond, large deck and patio furniture. We loved the location and walked a block to the beach and a few blocks to the downtown boardwalk. They have loaner bikes in the garage that we hopped on to ride to dinner and explore the area. Everything about this place was perfect!

Charming house & neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this house. The neighborhood was convenient to both the beach & to town. The house was very, very clean & well stocked for any activity (staying in or enjoying outside). Would love to stay there again.

Great house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Our families came to visit from out of town and this was the perfect location to share our awesome little town. They loved the entire house and its close proximity to downtown and the CdA resort. The bikes and beach gear were an added touch. The house was big enough to have 5 people and not feel like you on top of each other. The back yard was quaint and amazing. The whole visit was wonderful. I highly recommend this place for a great CdA getaway spot. Thank you so much for making our families feel at home.
