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.

About Amy Bartoo
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.

The perfect lake vacation
It is a great location. well stocked, quiet and clean. Great place!
Beautiful view, but that’s about it.
The pros: the pictures of the lake view and location do not do this listing justice. The lake is pristine and you can paddle to the marina restaurant in the cove. Great location! Fire pit. Great patio.
Cons: the listing says there is a paddle boat, floating devices, etc. That is not entirely accurate. We rented this place with the assumption of a relaxing weekend in the water. We couldn’t enjoy anything in the water because there are no life jackets or any floating devices such as noodles, tubes, floaties to sun bathe, etc. The paddle boat’s steering wasn’t working which made it difficult to use. There was a one-person kayak. Given the security deposit is large, you would assume that they have things they are worried about being broken or taken, but there weren’t any quality lake toys (for adults or children).
There was no pre-made ice or ice machine.
There were NO pantry items. We assumed (our fault I guess) there would be some olive oil or some sort of cooking oil so we could use the grill but there wasn’t. There weren’t any koozies or other lake items you would need. There was a fire pit but no lighters to make a fire!
There is no air conditioning so keep that in mind depending on your trip schedule.
We rented this cabin from out of state. Unless you’re driving in and can bring your own life jackets, floating gear, mini ice chest, ice packs, etc., then you may want to keep looking.
The owner communicated well but the listing does not match what you get for the price. Note the listing says no TV, no WiFi. There is also no washer or dryer and you have to bring your own drinking and cooking water.
I am thankful for this guests honest opinion of our cabin. Since we have not had an opportunity to stay at the cabin ourselves this year, I had no idea that the steering on the paddle boat wasn't working and we will fix that immediately. Nor had I even thought about the fact that we don't have the adult life jackets back in their normal spot at the cabin after having stored them at home for the winter. That will be taken care of as well.
I believe the $300 damage deposit is reasonable and competitive with other properties in our area.
In terms of the fire pit, we not only have fire starter near the pit, there are lighters/matches galore in the kitchen and in shed and I wish our guest would have called or texted me about any of these items and I would have done my best to accommodate their needs.
I am wondering if you found the toy closet in the lower sleeping area that has several knee boards and beach boards available for use. However, because of your thorough review, I have ordered a 12' x 6' "Lily Pad" floating apparatus.
Yes, there is no wifi, internet, tv, or washer/dryer. This information is available on the VRBO site under our property number. I advertise our cabin as rustic most definitely. There is sufficient space in either freezer for bags of ice or filled ice trays.
Again, without your review I wouldn't have known to correct some of these items. Have a wonderful rest of the summer.
Wonderful lakefront getaway
Amy's cabin was a wonderful getaway for our family. The outdoor deck is huge and in mint condition and the Trex dock was delightful. There are plenty of outdoor chairs, a 1 person kayak, a paddleboard and a paddle boat for 2. I wish we'd had a boat to dock in their covered slip. We slept upstairs only on the comfy beds but the sleeping porch was tidy and welcoming when we arrived. We loved roasting marshmallows and hot dogs in the beach firepit. One thing to note is the water situation at the cabin. We had to bring our own drinking water since the cabin uses unfiltered lake water and were asked to conserve by not flushing every time. It was something I overlooked when I booked. Amy is a responsive host with a great sense of humor. We also found that at the cabin our AT&T phones and tablet worked fine. We didn't use them much, but it was nice to call ahead and look up hours of places we were visiting.
Great place to stay! Excellent boat dock!
Clean, cozy, outstanding! Boat launch is very close as well. Couldn't have been better.
Right on the water
Had a great time! Beach and dock area are perfect. Will be back nxt summer!
Wonderful cabin with great swimming!
Our family of five had a wonderful time at your cabin. The cabin is clean, comfortable, and well stocked. We particularly enjoyed your fabulous deck and outstanding dock and swim area. One morning we drove the short distance to Harrison and road our bikes on the beautiful Trail of the Coeur d' Alenes. We hope to return!
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.
