About Steve and Irene Pierce

We moved up to the beautiful Coeur D'alene area from Georgia in 1994. Purchasing this 13 acre property in 1997, we divided the land, selling 5 acres to my brother in law who built a beautiful custom designed home. Not wanting to part with the property when him and his wife let us know they were moving to Florida last year, we bought the house and have remodeled it with a vaction rental in mind.

Steve and Irene Pierce purchased this house in 2013

Why Steve and Irene Pierce chose Post Falls

Nestled between CDA and Spokane, this property is the perfect central location to the airport and shopping yet distant enough to enjoy the quiet solitude, wildlife and incomparable views of the area.

What makes this house unique

Whether you choose to bask in the peaceful serenity of the mountains, or entertain yourself with a 70' screen theatre room and did we mention leather recliners that seat up to 8? then this place is right for you.

Perfect place to relax and enjoy time with your family!

  • 5 of 5

This IS a gorgeous place with so many extras (visit their site - you will be amazed)! Spent four nights and loved every one - even with 90+ degree days we stayed pleasantly cool and comfortable. Steve and Irene were awesome and were always available to answer our questions. We made our reservations 6 months out and never worried about the unexpected. Our family made wonderful memories here and hope to come back to this beautiful place in the future. This is definitely one of our favorite vacations rentals!! Thanks Steve and Irene - you made our family reunion so enjoyable and the whole Vacation Rental experience a no-stress pleasure!

Beautiful Mountain Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an amazing stay at this property while attending a basketball tournament in Spokane Valley! The owners were very courteous in removing the snow from the driveway each day. The house was very clean and had all the essentials for a long weekend stay. Our family is very competitive so we spent much of our time downstairs in the game room. We would recommend this property to everyone!

Thank you!

Winter wonderland

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I live in Spokane but had convinced our two families that they should come up from southern CA for a white Christmas. So we rented this property and crossed our fingers that our picky parents would approve and hopefully play nice together while in town. When we arrived at the property, there was a decorated Christmas tree and stove fire waiting for us. It was almost as if there was some sort of magic surrounding the place. Despite the miserable holiday traveling, when everyone got to the cabin/house they were completely overjoyed. Everyone got along better than they ever had and seem to actually enjoy one another's company. The place was clean and full of lots of lovely details to make everything about the stay extra. Of note, as a connoisseur of good bedding, I was extremely impressed with the master bedroom bed, it may have been better than my own. We tried to do lots of planning for meals and think of all the things to bring but were pleasantly surprised when anything we overlooked seemed to be available, ie. tinfoil and napkins. So we played games, took pictures, laughed until we cried, and made memories to last a lifetime. Overall, the holiday was declared to be perfect and unbeatable. Steve and Irene were great hosts, readily available by text, and conveniently close by.

Recommendations to future renters: Main street shopping and photo ops by the lake in CDA, Post Falls Brewery is close and has great cider as well as live music on weekends, bring movies if you plan to use the media room as internet was extremely unreliable.

Thanks so much for an unforgettable stay!

The property is lovely.

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautiful. We were especially impressed with the well stocked kitchen, game room in the basement and the theatre room. The house is roomy and comfortable. The extra detail to the quality of the beds and linens was a real treat. We loved the home and hope to visit again next summer!!
