Bedrooms 2
Space 1,000 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


About the property

My husband and I have owned our Little Yellow House for more than 20 years now, residing in it for the first 10 years and then to a long-term rental.

This is our little house's third year as a vacation rental and we are very hopeful that you'll not only love your stay here, but you'll come back again and again. (If you do return, we'd like to offer a 10% discount for return guests...including Ironman week). :)

We've spent quite a bit of time making sure the inside is clean and cozy and we're confident you'll find everything you'll need for a brief or extended stay. Our focus now turns to the grounds, so please bear with us while we do some landscape upgrading (as time and finances allow). (UPDATE: The grounds are coming along beautifully). :)

We would also like to note that our house is not equipped with an automatic dishwasher or a clothes washer/dryer, so we've tried to reflect that in our rates. (Laundry services are available upon request or there is a self-service laundromat 10 blocks away).

We are also located within walking distance of a grocery store (3 blocks), St. Thomas church (3 blocks), Idaho State Liquor Store (3 blocks), tavern/pub (3 1/2 blocks), coffee hut (3 blocks) Vertical Earth Bike Rentals (5 blocks), Java on Sherman (7 blocks) convenience store/gas station (5 blocks), Centennial Trail (5 blocks), Cd'A Lake Dr. (less than a mile) and just 8 blocks from everything downtown has to offer in shops, galleries, restaurants, the lake and beaches and bars and nightlife, too!

Should you decide to visit Coeur d'Alene, be sure to allow enough time to enjoy all the amazing activities and sights that our beautiful little town has to offer, including, but certainly not limited to:

• Downtown Music Walk (4th Friday Jan.-April)

• Downtown Art Walk (2nd Friday April-Dec.)

Tubbs Hill

• Hudson’s Hamburgers (207 E. Sherman Ave.)

• McCuen Park (Near the new Public Library)

• Fort Sherman Playground and City Park/Beach

Guestbook comments from the owner

Such a cozy, artful home with ALL the amenities one could want!

Debbie, you have thought of each little thing someone might need.

We all love your decorating skills---leaf motif, colors...

Perfect for walking to town--to beach. I will certainly recommend and hopefully be back!

Oh, and thanks for the delicious cherry tomatoes!

Perfect Place for Family and Pets

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for us to stay on our first visit to Coeur d'Alene. We had 2 dogs with us and the back yard accommodated them perfectly. The house was maintained beautifully inside and out. The neighborhood made us feel very safe during our stay. This was important since we walked our dogs daily. Accessibility to downtown Coeur d'Alene couldn't have been better. The house provided everything we needed. The kitchen was well equipped to handle any cooking needs as well as an outdoor BBQ. The living room and bedrooms were very comfortable. When we travel this way again we would not hesitate to rent this house. We have rented many houses in our journeys, and this was truly one of the best.

Cute and Comfortable House Close to Downtown CDA

  • 5 of 5

Debbie's little house is a gem. The living room is bright and comfy, the kitchen is cute and well stocked, and our dog Sadie loved the nice fenced backyard. The house is in a quiet neighborhood close to downtown, the parks, and the lake. We can't wait 'till our next visit.

Debbie's house is so cute and has a great yard. We had a wonderful time staying here for two nights on our way home to Seattle from Montana. We were able to walk everywhere (15-ish minutes), including the lake, restaurants, bars etc. Woukd definitely recommend!
