This 3 bedroom, 1 bath cabin is situated on two levels. Upstairs has master bedroom and single guest room, bath, kitchen, living/dining area. Downstairs is known by us as the 'sleeping porch' which is accessed by outside stairs and can sleep four in a double, single, and 'nook'. There is a huge wrap around deck overlooking the dock, beach, and gorgeous lake view and sunsets. New dock has covered boat slip and composite decking to be safe on feet. Our cabin is truly a 'cabin' with no television but all of the kitchen amenities one would need to prepare a wonderful meal and a charcoal BBQ on deck. There is a paddle boat, kayak, and various water lounging aparatus' available to our guests. Note: There are 40 steps leading from parking area to cabin and then 30 steps from cabin to the beach.
Gary and Amy Bartoo purchased our cabin in 1995 because we felt we better acquire 'Our piece of Heaven' while it was still attainable. There is no better family time spent than spent together here.

We spent a few days in the CDA area and stayed at this lakefront property. The description and pictures are accurate and the cabin and property are very nice. We did not use the downstairs sleeping area. There are quite a few steps, but not bad. Parking at the top of the steps is a little tight, but we managed to park a car trailer and van. The views are great, the water clear, and the deck is wonderful. We did not use the fire pit due to the area fire ban. We used the bike trail several times, and the drive to Harrison is short. Fishing off the dock was fun-the dock and boat slip is composite, also the deck on the house. Very nice. The homeowners are great with communications, etc. If you want fancy appliances, whirlpool baths and granite in the kitchen, you will miss the true cabin feel of this property. It was great.
We had a great time at the cabin. It has a cute sleeping porch separate from the main cabin, a nice beach space / swimming area (not to mention a diving platform for those that are more adventurous), a really nice boat dock and a large fire pit. We used it as a jumping off point for swimming, boating and did the short drive to Harrison to rent bikes on the Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes. We had a bit of rain and wanted to get out so also did day trips (we don't mind driving, but each was an hour plus away) up to Silverwood theme park and to pan for gold in Kellogg. Both were very fun. The cabin itself was simple but nice and very clean.
The only negatives: (1) for those that get car sick (one of my brood unfortunately does) is that the road along the east side of the lake is quite windy, but we still found it well worth it and (2) we didn't mind, but there are quite a few stairs down to the cabin from the parking area that could be challenging for those less mobile.
The cabin is 27 miles from the city of Coeur d'Alene where there are a plethora of activities, night life, and restaurants. The cabin it self is fairly secluded with one bar/restaurant within walking distance. Grocery shopping and a wonderful massage therapist are available in the quaint town of Harrison, ID which is 9 miles away and makes for a great day trip. The famed 'Trail of the Coeur d'Alene's' is a fabulous biking/roller blading path that goes for miles along the lakefront.
