In the wilds of Coeur d'Alene, this three bedroom lakefront vacation home, aptly name Paradise Regained, is only 50 yards to a private beach on the lake. Spend lazy afternoons sitting back in bright red lounge chairs, gazing out at the water, or maybe watching for bald eagles. And if you have a boat, park it at your own personal dock!
Surrounded by trees and wildlife, the front of the house sits back on a pretty orchard. There's plenty of room for kids big and small to run around and have fun. When you enter, a spacious and open floorplan greets you, with plenty of large windows that bring the natural light and outdoors in. A rock-faced wood burning fireplace is to one side of the living room, and on the other is Lake Coeur d'Alene. Comfortable plaid couches provide plenty of seating for the scenic, panoramic view, and the central air conditioning will keep you cool when the weather gets warm. Glass doors lead out to a new wrap-around deck and rails where you can while away the hours with a good book, a glass of wine, and pleasant conversation. The deck also has a top-of-the-line Traeger wood pellet smoker/barbecue for outdoor feasts.
The newly remodeled kitchen is all shiny, with new appliances and gorgeous granite counter tops. A lowered counter desk area is a great place to check email or search through a cookbook for dinner ideas. The adjacent dining area includes a large oval table with seating for six and more spectacular views. After dinner you may want to wander down to the beach, sit back, and roast marshmallows over the fire pit.
The master suite is located on this level with a queen sized bed, luxurious bedding, hardwood floors and its own picturesque water vistas. The full attached bathroom has plenty of vanity space and a shower/tub combo.
From the living room, head down the unique black spiral staircase to a cozy family room with entertainment center. There's room to spread out and play games, or just sit back and watch movies on the large flat screen TV with DirecTV. A DVD, VCR, and a stereo are on hand for your viewing and listening pleasure as well. Another wood burning fireplace will keep you nice and toasty.
There are two additional bedrooms on this level. The first has a queen sized bed, reading lamps, large mirrored closet and sliding glass doors out onto the lower deck. Another bedroom has two twin beds and also has its own access out to the patio. On this level you will also find another full bathroom and a laundry room. This vacation home will sleep six fun-loving guests very comfortably.
Lake Coeur d'Alene spans 25 miles and boasts over 109 miles of beautiful shoreline. Your piece of this paradise has its own private dock for boat parking or for jumping off into the clean blue water for a little swimming.
On days when you want to venture out a bit, downtown Coeur d'Alene is about 20 miles away. From there you can explore shops, browse art galleries, see a movie, even spend the afternoon on a scenic lake cruise.
Before making the drive home you may want to stop at one of the many dining options in town with everything from fine dining to barbecue to Thai. For meals out a bit closer to the house, make the five mile trip to Shooter's Bar and Grill for local 7th Shot IPA and burgers to please your hungry group.
In winter, skiing and snowboarding are about an hour's drive east at Silver Mountain Resort. Closer to the house, a horse-drawn sleigh ride around downtown is a relaxing and scenic way to take in holiday views of this pretty Idaho town. Spend anytime of year at this wonderful vacation home for a Lake Coeur d'Alene adventure you won't soon forget.
