Newly restored. Located right on the peaceful water of the Thorofare yet just across the sand bar to the main lake, surrounded by National Forest and private 18 acres. And, although listed as Mosquito Bay, we are actually not in that bay and there are NO MORE MOSQUITOS THAN ANY OTHER AREA ON THE LAKE. We have a Private beach and dock. Spectacular site for canoeing or boating up the world renowned gorgeous Thorofare or on the lake. Starting point for amazing hiking, canoeing, boating, swimming, snowmobiling, and cross-country skiing, bird watching, wildlife viewing, peaceful camp fires, relaxing in the all day sun, or spectacular star gazing.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: My father fished and boated on this lake since the 20's and as a child we traveled from Spokane to camp and play on a nearby beach. This site was originally Forest Lodge and many famous people stayed there including movie star Nell Shipman and her over 100 animals for filming. We jumped at the chance to purchase and restor this incredible site; and as a family have worked for 7 years to restore the forest and cabins in this historic, beautiful place.

Why the Owner Chose Coolin, ID, USA:
We wanted to save this amazing, beautiful site from developers and restore the historic cabins and keep the natural forest. We own 15 acres behind the cabin as a natural habitat and are bordered on the west side by National forest so it is not only gorgeous but also peaceful.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We have restored the cabin to be very comfortable with its great views of water, mountains, forest, and amazing night sky. Our sons and daughters have built cedar lined fire pit area and rock lined paths; and we are always cleaning the forest. We provide a canoe, and traveling up the Thorofare is an experience of a lifetime - you might even see a moose at the water's edge; then relax for evening smores by the fire. Thorofare water is calm for swimming, and boating and just across the sandbar out the Thorofare entrance is the main lake for all water activities.
