The huge fenced backyard has a large new deck with gas grill, table and chairs. A large back yard provides plenty of room for games. Lawn games provided include: volleyball, badminton, croquet, and horse shoes. This park like setting makes the Benson House an excellent location for a large group.

LOCATION IS EVERYTHING: From the Benson House, you can walk to any number of coffee shops, restaurants, clubs, art galleries, antique stores and shopping boutiques. The beach, with all the boat rental and water sport activities, is just a short walk from the house.

Minutes away from world famous golf courses, great fishing, bike and hiking trails, and horseback riding. Within a short distance you can ride the worlds longest gondola at Silver Mountain, enjoy Silverwood theme park, visit the Coueur d' Alene Casino, or go white water rafting.

Enjoyable space inside and out!

  • 4 of 5

We visited CDA on one of the most beautiful Memorial Day week-ends in years. With four little ones and every adult wanting to be outside playing games it was perfect! The backyard is huge and well supplied with games and toys and the front porch invites you to sit and relax. The little boys spent hours on the swing. The inside had space enough for everyone and the beds were comfortable. We also enjoyed the large dining table as we ate most meals at the house. It was a lovely time spent with family!

Winter Wonderland

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place for us to enjoy a family winter holiday retreat. The home is beautiful and well kept. We really enjoyed our stay here and the home has a very cozy feel. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything needed. The beds were comfortable and the neighborhood was very quiet. Gary was a pleasure and very responsive when I had questions. We would definitely stay here again.

Charming property walking distance from downtown

  • 4 of 5

We would definitely stay here again. The property is quite charming and everything was ship shape; the home is well stocked with pretty much everything you need. Though we didn't spend much time there during the day, the back yard is beautiful and equipped with gas barbecue's if you're inclined to grill. The owner is easily accessible and responsive which made everything that much easier. The property location is terrific as you can take a few minutes brisk morning walk to downtown for breakfast or just coffee. Plus it is in a relatively quiet neighborhood so there were no intrusive noises. The wi-fi and cable TV worked great which can be a real annoyance otherwise. Coeur d'Alene is one of the most scenic places in the USA and is well worth the trip - this was my second time back to the area and it did not disappoint. The only reason this is not a 5-star review is that I felt the cleaning fee was high, particularly in view of the fact we did not cook and used only one of the bedrooms plus the 2 bathrooms for our 3 night stay. That said, I would not hesitate to rent this property again as the positives vastly outweigh the cleaning fee.

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. It was perfectly located for downtown activities and in great proximity to restaurants and other shopping, including groceries. The house has old-house charm and every accommodation has been considered (towels, soaps, extra blankets, grill tools, etc.) The kitchen is small but clean, updated and well-stocked. The beds are comfortable, yard is spacious, neighborhood is quiet, porch is comfortable and charming.

Owners are very easy to work with and they communicate very responsively and thoroughly so you know what to expect when you get there. We would definitely stay here again.
